I’ve created a new beauty blog!

Anonymous asked: Hi dear what is the color that you are using here? light or medium?Kindly regards =)

What you’re talking about is unclear, but most likely light. In every makeup product I’m usually the lightest or second lightest color so my shades are usually in Fair or Light

Looking back at my most recent FOTD, the only shade I didn’t put was for my foundation. In that foundation range, I am the shade Ivory (I’m also an NW20 for matching purposes)

Dear Followers,

As you might have noticed, I haven’t been entirely consistent with my posts on this blog. Actually, I’ve been neglecting this blog for the better part of this past year! And to be quite honest, although I’ve tried getting back into the swing of things, this blog has ended up in a place where I don’t feel comfortable. I no longer feel comfortable posting here and to be honest, this blog stresses me out more than posting about makeup should. I don’t feel like this blog and these posts adequately represent me as an informer and as a person. I am eternally grateful for all of you though because since starting this blog, I’ve learned so much about makeup and beauty. I look back on my older posts and feel mostly frustrated and embarrassed by what I used to think and practice with makeup.

So although I’ve enjoyed my time learning and talking about makeup to you all, I feel like this blog has run its course. It’s gotten to the point where I no longer feel comfortable posting and where it feels more like a chore than something I enjoy doing. Thus, I will be leaving this blog promptly. I won’t delete it though, for nostalgic reasons and so it can still serve as a source of information for any wandering tumblr user. I more than likely will create a different makeup blog at some point in the future, and when I do I will return to this blog to notify you all-if any of you are still following-if any of you would care to follow my newer blog. But until then, I’ll have to say goodbye to you all.

So goodbye and take care! It’s been fun.

Face of the day: Matte Eyes, Matte Lips
Today I’m meeting a friend for frozen yogurt and I decided to play around with my makeup some and try something new. Working off of a picture I saw on Pinterest, I went with a matte eye with a very defined crease-even if it doesn’t show up in the picture-and matte pink lips. I also very recently got my hair cut shorter!
