[MUA] ‘Bruised Eye’

This I call the “Bruised-eye”, inspired by late nights and unfortunate accelerated growth of dark eye-bags. I used to believe blues and greys would make a pale girl look like she’s a foot from her grave, but it’s all in matching the right lipstick shade. In my honest opinion, I haven’t gone quite bruise-eyed enough. I could have gone deeper if this hadn’t been a casual gym day.

I’ve had this Too Faced palette for 2 years now, and the shades never go out of season. The browns are great for a nude, warm day look; the purples work perfectly when I feel a tad bolder; and the blue/greys are my go-to cool-tones. Though it’s bulky to carry around, I used to travel with these because without them I feel unarmed. My favourite shades? The shimmery gold, and glittery midnight black.

  This FASIO lippie was purchased in Japan a good 2 years ago, and I don’t even remember the exact shade name. The sparkly purple is pigmented just adequately to coat my lips with a thin sheen.

So I had a great run. A day of good endorphins demands a snap.

I’d better go to bed to salvage this bruised eye situation.

Goodnight y’all.

"Do you see the story? Do you see anything?... It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream - making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream sensation... No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence - that which makes its truth, its meaning - its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream - alone." Marlow in Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad.
