I haven't posted just a simple, daily look in a long time! Yesterday, I wanted to try something different with my eyes since I usually do variations of the same cut crease look. I decided not to use anything on most of my eyelids except for a little primer so they weren't too shiny. I like the veins showing against the dainty cat eye and soft eyeshadow on my lower eyelid. As for my lips, I've been going through my lipsticks lately trying to wear a different one each day and I was really feeling Portland Black Lipstick Company's Black Lagoon. It's so gorgeous and I forgot how amazing the formula is.

I did a shoot this last Sunday but it was really boring and basic with no variety, hence no shoot post on Monday. I feel like I've had a bit of a slump lately, which is okay. I just wish it was in another month than October because October is amazing and I had all these Halloween inspired ideas in mind during September but they've mostly fallen apart or I've felt uninspired to execute them, except for my main one which I'm still working on. Now hopefully that will turn out!
