FOTD: Nekkid Eyes

Every now and then a I get overcome by an odd feeling- the urge to wear neutral eyeshadow. Every thing else I wear is bland, boring, and dull. Colorful eyeshadow is my one "non-boring" aspect of my appearance. Seriously, I wear jeans, a t shirt, and Converse everyday. I either put my hair in a ponytail or wear it down and straighten it. I don't wear any jewelry or accessories ever.  See what I mean? Boring. I have 4 pairs of shoes- 2 Converse, 1 pair of tennis shoes, and 1 pair of flip flops (chanclas!) and three pair of jeans. I'm happy with this. It's simple and it works for me.

But put me in neutral eyeshadows and I feel naked.  After buying the Naked palette I'm starting to appreciate neutrals more, but I still feel more comfortable in hot pink eyeshadow than taupe.  So it was a little weird when I had the urge to do this look. I also wanted to practice my winged liner skills, but it's pretty obvious I need some more practice!

  1. Nice makeup!

    I love neutrals on my eyes and I wear them almost everyday. When I feel like using some colour I go for some kind of colourful accent like bold colour in my waterline or bright mascara on my lower lashes. It's never boring :-).

  2. OMG, you look too cute! I like what you did with the naked palette. Still not a huge fan of neutral eyes myself, if not because they never seem to want to photograph correctly for me.

  3. You look beautiful!

    The Naked Palette is what brought me back to neutrals!

  4. You look so pretty! Wow!! You always do, of course, but I am loving this look on you ;-)

  5. I have a love of both neutrals and brights, but neutrals are definitely my safety zone. :P You look beautiful!

  6. @Atqa Beauty- Thank you!I do that too. If I don't feel like wearing a lot of eyeshadow I'll just put on some bold eyeliner. I don't think neutrals are boring; I just like to wear color on my eyes because I AM boring with everything else I wear, haha.

    @Vijaya- Aw, thank you! I know what you mean. neutrals are usually more subtle and it makes them hard to capture the nuances accurately.

    @Peace, Love, Sparkles- Thank you! And me too. I rarely wore them before buying this palette.

    @Maribeth- Thank you!It's still hard for me to post pictures of myself because I feel so self-conscious. Everyone's nice words are helping, though. :)

    @Susan- Eyeshadow is the one place I feel comfortable wearing bold colors. I'm not sure why. Even my shirts are all neutral colors or black! And thank you; you are too sweet! :D

  7. You did a really good job with the eyeshadow application, and you are slowly convincing me that I need the Naked palette. :)

  8. I dig this look on you. The shadow is subtle but still so pretty!!

    Do you find the Physician's Formula black gel liner easy to use? I'm looking for a better liner than my black kohl liner but am not sure where to start in the world of gel liners. :)

  9. You look lovely! It's nice you're moving outside your comfrot zone of brights :) I feel naked in nude lipstick myself!

  10. Great job on the neutral look with winged liner! You look very classy!


Thank you so much for your comments! I appreciate them all and read every one!
