FOTD: The Mermaid Katricia (9/1/12)

I have quite a bit of makeup bought with the intention of using it together – “get the look” kits, or pieces I bought at the same time because so-and-so had worn them together and I wanted to do that look, too, etc. So I’m trying to, you know, actually use them already. You’ll probably see more looks than usual where I’m reaching for a put-together group of shades, or copying a look someone’s already put together, rather than thinking real hard and putting shades together. 🙂 (Sometimes I love it, and sometimes I just look at all my options and sigh really loudly and flop facedown on my bed.

FOTD: Sobe Get the Look Orange, Pink, and Purple by Blix (7/4/12)

Kit from here, and look/tute here. Blix is so brilliant, isn’t she? And Lex (owner of Sobe) is an absolute doll! She contacted me after I placed an order, to let me know she was having a sale soon, and ask if I wanted her to cancel my order so I could replace it in a couple days during the sale. I said no (impatient to get my pretties!), thanks, and then asked about her lippie Verdigris, since I’d wanted it but it wasn’t listed in her Etsy store – and she sent it to me for free, in addition to free eyeshadow and foundation samples! How nice! And it all got here super fast! Squee!! 🙂 Also, Claire gave me the best summer bottoms idea EVER – she’s brilliant, too. Check below the cut for more pictures, makeup details, and Claire’s brilliance. 😀
