Anyway, I'm determined to not just sit on the sidelines and be a sack sad of shit. I can't. Too many people depend on me to be here in the present tense. I've been doing the bare minimum, and sometimes not even that, for the past couple of months now. Honestly, it's exhausting to be depressed all the time. I'm doing nothing and yet somehow draining myself.
On to my uninspired OOTD! It's not terribly exciting, I know. I am bone-tired. But I was challenged to wear pink, and I decided to also try out a make-up look that I normally would never do: silver eyeliner. I lined first with black and then did silver on top. The eyeshadow color is purple, but once it's actually on my skin, it seems to take on a fuchsia tone, so it seems kind of coordinated. Granted, my eye make-up is a bit amateur but I have hooded eyelids which makes my mistakes way less noticeable!
The makeup is Karity eyeshadow (I bought one of their big palettes), Nyx black waterproof eyeliner, and the silver eyeliner is Urban Decay 24/7 in "Bobby Dazzle".
Looking at this photo, I realize how NOT a lot of make-up that was, but it FELT like a ton. I'm glad it didn't actually look excessive or over-the-top. I really like the silver eyeliner! And yes, it was truly 24/7. I decided to be really gross and sleep in it to test it out (okay, fine, I had way too much wine and passed out in a recliner, shut up), and my eyeliner was still sharp the next day! Like what?! But don't sleep in it. That's just nasty.
Before I sign off, I wanted to give you a heads up that I will be posting a TON about the I Love My Life event hosted by Carol Tuttle, founder of the Dressing Your Truth system (for those unfamiliar, I can't even begin to explain it succinctly, so just go check out her site. You have to get past some of the hippie dippie word choices, unless you're new agey and into that sort of thing). I have a lot to talk about, though I didn't necessarily take that many photos of my outfits (I wanted to be present and in the moment during the event, not snapping constant selfies). I might be dividing it into several posts. But, it was a very positive experience for me, even though I actually considered eating the cost of the tickets and the flight and hotel room and just... not going. I'm glad I just sucked it up and went. More to come!
