Inaugural Face of the Day post

Wow, who thought taking color-accurate, well-lit, flattering pictures of yourself would be HARD ::being sarcastic cuz holy crap it's friggin ridiculously difficult and i have a newfound respect for all those beauty bloggers out there who are capable of taking all those gorgeous pics i'm always drooling over::::

So here's my first attempt at snapping some face of the day shots. Understand that I suck at photography and am technologically challenged and therefore have NO earthly clue how to photoshop these into some semblance of realistic depiction of the colors I'm wearing....I got lots to learn, people!

So anyway, this look was inspired  this gorgeous pink and purple look posted by The Crow and the Powderpuff (one of my favorite makeup artist/bloggers). I don't have the products that she used, so I substituted my own stuff (all drugstore makeup, of course) and I toned the eyeshadow down for a more daytime appropriate look.

More pics and list of products used after the jump...

Almay Clear Complexion foundation, concealer and powder in Ivory
Physicians Formula Happy Boosters blush  in Rose
Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls in Translucent Pearl

NYX HD eyeshadow base (holy grail, bayyy-beee)
shadows: all from Coastal Scents 88 Ultra shimmer palette 
Jordana Fabu-liner in black (my holy grail liquid liner!!)
Maybelline the Falsies Flared mascara

E.L.F. Brow kit in medium
E.L.F. clear mascara as brow gel

Milani Lip Flash pencil in Flashy
Revlon Lip Butter in Cotton Candy (frickin OBSESSED with these lipbutters. I have 11 out of 20 of them...will be posting more about them soon!)

Tools: All Ecotools and E.L.F. brushes, Revlon black & red eyelash curler 

so badda bing, badda boom...there you have it. Now 'scuse me while I go enroll in photography school so I can take better pics (I wish!)...
