Make It Up

Every now and then I get the random urge to experiment with my makeup and/or hair. The other night was one of those times. I had taken my mom out for Mother's Day to get her nails done and as I waited I read some of the fashion magazines they had. In the spreads there are always tons of pictures of gorgeous girls with bright outrageous makeup done. 

I always love the way they look but don't think I would ever be brave enough to wear it out in public, and I honestly I don't really think anyone does wear makeup like that out in public, at least not the people I see. :)

I never used to wear eye-liner, I always thought that it didn't look good on me. But this past year has definitely been a year of change for me and I decided to try wearing it. Turns out I love it! I really like the winged-eye or cat-eye look, it reminds me so much of Cleopatra and strong women. So the other day I decided to experiment and see if I could even create winged-eye look like in the pictures above. This is what I came up with:

I think for me, it probably looks better in pictures than it does in person. It definitely gives the look that I'm wearing a lot of makeup. My mom even said it looked scary! haha I think next time I'll tone it down a bit. Whether I actually wear it out in public it's still fun to play around and try out different makeup ideas.
