Let me just say that I really miss having Paint Shop on my computer. I wish I could find the installation CD, but I have no idea where it is. I may have to ransack my apartment tonight to try and find it again. That being said, this was my attempt at using Paint.net and Paint to edit photos. (Paint.net is a free program, Paint is the default for Windows) Paint.net is...uh...interesting to work with. I may get the hang of it after a little more practice, but it's just frustrating me right now, since I use Paint Shop to edit everything.
I'm not entirely sure this look worked for me, but I'm going to post it anyway. Hell, I wore it out on Saturday while running errands, so plenty of people saw me with bright pink eyes.
Products Used Face: Philosophy On A Clear Day Revlon & Clinique concealers Everyday Minerals foundation - Golden Medium Intensive Everyday Minerals blush - Nick Nack Silk Naturals Finishing Powder
Eyes: Soft Ochre Paint Pot base for lids Pure Luxe Tickle e/s on lid MAC Shroom e/s to highlight HIP Black cream liner on lid MAC Graphblack Teknakohl liner for waterline Cover Girl Lash Exact in Black
I probably could have added another eyeshadow to blend the colors better, but I was in a bit of a rush to get out the door and still take pictures. Also, I'm not sure that if Shroom is the right color, but I can't remember what I actually used =T oops. I have a subtle purple FOTD as well, but I'm going to wait until I get home so I can properly edit and crop photos.
I'm definitely liking Nick Nack as a blush - it's just a nice hint of pink on my cheeks, so I'm not worried that it looks too bright, or takes away from whatever eyeshadow I happen to be wearing.
Lots of ladies (Nessa, Lynne, and Karen's Bond-like mission) have been posting about Fafi, which will release later this week. I'm glad you've all gotten swatches of the line - I'm still sitting on the fence about whether or not I like anything. It's blasphemy, but - I feel like I have enough makeup right now, more than enough products to experiment with and find combinations that work, and if I add anything else I may confuse myself. Some preemptive spring cleaning may be in order this week!
