FOTD: Brilliant Blue and Brown

Hola beauty buffs!*_*! How are you all doing? Geesh, this weather certainly came on pretty quickly and swiftly, but it's ! Anyway, sorry for not posting before now, I was distracted but I'll try to do better. Although, I have to inform you that all of my batteries died; which by the way I just took out of the package but somehow none of them work at all, it just shut off the second that I attempted to turn on my camera! I don't know what the heck to do, if anyone has experienced this, then please fill me in on how I can recharge, or get these lame batteries to freaking work already! I can't believe that people can sell faulty batteries that's so ineffective?! Whew, good rant!

EOTD: Brilliant Blue and Brown
  • - Primer: Mark Speedway Do Everything Makeup: Skin 6
  • - Base: Cream eye shadow stick: Light Blue or any cream eyeshadow

This is a great look for you Krystia! Love the bright blue. Isn't funny how different eyes make pretty much the same colours look different? I love that about makeup :)

CHARRY said...

lovely look :)

jamie said...

Flawless skin! Its been so long since I last tested my manly palette..maybe I need to try it again to see if I can achieve the same effect! lol!:)

Krystia-HouseofKrystia said...

Wow, thank you for the lovely words, ladies!

to Jamie:
Thank you, but I do not have flawless skin; I do, however have foundation, lol. So that's my trick to a nice glow or matte look; really great coverage foundation for all of the darks spots on my face.

to Steph/Mama:
Girl, I must have fallen in love with makeup before I knew what it was. My mom was just telling me the other day that she "didn't think that I would grow up to love makeup so much." I told her, "Why not? I was always playing with yours, duh!" Apparently I was a sneaky little child, so she did not know this, lol!

Well, I actually don't think that I love makeup, I actually get weirded out by that comment, because it makes it seem as if I worship the stuff; which I certainly do not! I love that I can use makeup, the range of colours and products, and that it's there for me to get glammed up, or simply enhance an effortless look. Makeup is only a tool for me, if I'm not doing anything special, then I rock a bareface and some gloss, maybe some mascara too and that's just being real! But I am only in love with God and His greatness!
p.s. sorry for the long-winded run-on*_*
