Makeup of the Day |Night Out and New Hair

MOTD.png

It’s almost Friday! Who is ready for the weekend? I am having a little party tomorrow evening so I am excited. Today, I have a couple of MOTD pics to share from a night out and an outfit pic. I also have new hair to show off.

Let’s check out the makeup. I wanted to do something really fun using only Wet N Wild/drugstore makeup. I used the Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Palette for this look and a metallic liner from Jordana. The liner killed my eyes. It made them itch so bad. Anyway, on the lips is Wet N Wild Liquid Catsuit in Give me Mocha.

I was feeling super depressed all that last week when I did this look. I don’t know why really, all I wanted to do was lay in bed and sleep, by the day I did this look I was feeling a little better. That whole week was spent in a panicked misery though. It sucked. Doing makeup helps me sometimes to break out of those funks. It’s like doing yoga or painting for me. When I was taking photos of the look I snapped the one below and almost deleted it because you could see how my eyes weren’t even. I have spoken before about how my eyelids are partially paralyzed. In person, it’s not obvious but pictures show it Anyway, I was about to delete this pic when I thought to myself., “No! this is a fire picture, so what if your lid imperfection shows? You are who you are!” It kind of snapped me out of my funk, because I think some of the depression was caused by my perfectionist mentality and feeling incredibly inadequate. I was feeling like a shit blogger, shit friend, shit wife, and homemaker. Just feeling like nothing I was doing was good enough. Thing is, no one is asking for perfection! All this pressure is just from myself. It’s stupid. That being said, I am going to keep trying, just not going to beat myself up about it. Welcome to my Ted Talk…

This is the caption I put on this photo on Instagram. “At 31 I have learned to embrace myself inside and out. I spent the majority of my life trying to minimize and hide things about myself because heaven forbid someone says something or make fun. The older I get though the less I care about what anyone else thinks. I’m proud of who I am. Be your own kind of beautiful! ”

Anyway… Enough of all that. I am feeling much better now.

I love this outfit btw.

Oh yeah, part of my funk was because my Pumpkin was sick with an allergic reaction but after some meds she is all better. BeautyPlus_20180822194923737_save

Funny thing is, after her reaction I had one to Peanut Butter! Felt like I had something stuck in my throat for two hours. I don’t recall ever having an issue with peanut butter before and I eat peanuts but not peanut butter often. I was just hungry and ate a spoonful. This happened about 3 days in a row and got progressively worse. So no more peanut butter for me. I am allergic to walnuts and pecans but not bad, just get itchy, not like I am choking. Penicillin makes my throat get tight though and I did have a reaction a few weeks ago when I had strep and they gave me the wrong meds so perhaps my allergies are acting up. Like they are on high alert. Either way, no more peanuts for me. I kind of think that’s what caused Pumpkin’s reaction as well.

Ah well, that’s all for today. Just a quick update.
