My eyes today were inspired by Blair Waldorf‘s eyes (a fictional character from Gossip Girl, guilty pleasure of mine). I say inspired, because she would never wear shimmery eye shadow, nor would she rock Cat Eye liner during the day! Not her style at all, as she favors natural looking liner and mascara. However, the lid shade I used, Vanilla Truffle, she’d be all over. It’s a nice light matte brown shade by Flirt! Cosmetics. I thought that with my copious amounts of makeup, I’d have an eye shadow that particular hue, but until I picked up Vanilla Truffle, I didn’t have an exact match. Instead of using a grey or brown to deepen the lid color, I grabbed Prussian, a dark blue. For the brow color, I used Venomous Pegasus (pressed), and it looked really nice.

Blair might not mind my nude blush, though I think she favors either pink, pinky-brown blushes, or warm pink blushes. She’d probably be ok with Meow’s blush in Flicker or MUFE’s blush in 112. She wouldn’t be caught dead in a bright lip like Fusion Pink, but she’d probably wear a coral-pink shade or a warm pink shade, blotted down, such as Revlon Matte Pink About it.



This was taken with no flash, natural light, next to a window. I was trying to see how well the liquid foundation that I used very sparingly looked on my skin.
