Update: Hurricane María, Unemployment, Leaving the Country

Hello, world! It's been a while since I've posted here. A bunch of things have happened that have prevented me from blogging as regularly as I did before. As some of you may have seen on Twitter, I was affected by the Category 4 (5) Hurricane María that struck Puerto Rico. The island has suffered incredibly. The initial impact took lives, tore roofs off, flooded towns, destroyed cars, and some people lost all of their belongings. The entire electrical grid collapsed and all 3 million + inhabitants were left without communication and power. It's been a month since the hurricane and we still don't have power. 

Chartreuse and Glossy Cherries: Makeup Look

I decided to play around with colors that I rarely tend to use: yellow on the eyes and glossy lips, specifically in a dark plum shade. This look has actually been my favorite in months. I particularly love how the lips turned out. Lip gloss annoys me to no end, it gets everywhere and your hair gets stuck in it. Pair that with a dark vampy lip color, which is super high maintenance already, and it's a nightmare-ish combination. Still, I loved so much how it looked that I put my hair in a bun and hoped for the best. Here are the products I used to create this makeup look...

Review: Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in Fandango Purple

The Sleek Matte Me lip creams were actually one of the first drugstore matte liquid lipsticks to come out. I've wanted to try them for ages! Thanks to my best friend who bought this for me I am finally able to review one on my blog. The color she got for me is Fandango Purple which is precisely the shade I wanted to try the most after seeing it on LaaLaa from Dolce Vanity.

A different 90's Brown: MAC Bowl Me Over Lipstick

Here's another review brought to you thanks to my housemate, yay! Sharing is caring. This is a really beautiful red-brown lipstick that she picked up at a MAC Cosmetics counter. I think you will really like this. It's a nice change of pace from the mass of beige/brown 90's nudes that are constantly getting talked about. Bowl Me Over is deeper in color and has a brick red undertone. It definitely reminds me a lot of the lipsticks I would find in my mom's and my friend's mom's makeup bags. 

A Daytime Pink Glitter Makeup Look

I realize "daytime makeup" is a very subjective phrase. I am a person who is comfortable with wearing a lot of makeup at any given time. I'm sure a smokey eye with a hint of glitter and winged liner is not everyone's version of daytime wearable. Still, I found this look to be very subtle considering how many products I used. As always, I encourage everyone to wear whatever they want whenever they want. If you'd like to wear a full face of makeup during the day but don't know where to start, then I recommend going for light colors such as pale pinks, rose, and mauve. Particularly if you opt for a barely there lip color, you'll find that you can get away with a smokey eye and some glitter without feeling like you're going clubbing at 11 in the morning.
