Lustrous Vanilla Truffle

I got about 2.5 hours sleep last night. I can’t decide if me being sick from 11pm to 6am was a really bad headache or a migraine or whatever bug it is I have from Ray and Dave being sick, or my allergies. Whatever the cause, I got very little sleep. I feel like crap. I don’t function well on little sleep. So this is what I threw together with minimal effort, trying to make myself look less like death warmed over and more like girl next door.

To achieve that, I kept the focus on the upper eye. I kept the colors simple. I did add a bit of MAC All That Glitters to the center of the lid for some dimension and depth. Venomous Pegasus (pressed) added pretty shimmer for the inner corner and the browbone.

      I love how the eye look is simultaneously bronze-y and creamy. Love it. <3

        Thanks! I think the matte base shade really helped with that.

      Your skin looks so flawless. Seriously, you don’t look like you’re recovering at all. You look really fresh and young!

      I’d love to see a bombshell look on you. The heavy fringed over the top smoky eyes (lots of black and grey) and nude glossy lips. I’ll scroll through your looks to see if there’s one already- but if you get a chance I’d love to see you do one!

        I feel awful. I slept 13 hours and called in to work today. My throat is so swollen and stabbing blah.

        I’ve done a few pinup type looks. I’ll see about doing a bombshell type look when I’m feeling better :)

      You look fabulous even without the proper amount of sleep! Your skin is looking fantastic – not even remotely close to “death warmed over!”

      • Phyrra

        Aw thanks Mary Beth!

      Wow, you look fabulous for getting that little of sleep! But then again you always look fabulous. Hope you feel better soon!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Jessi. I wish I would feel better soon!

      You look great when you’re sick. Also, I love when people still put in the effort to do their makeup even when they are not feeling well!

        Thanks VB!

      I like this, reminds me of coffee. I like coffee too. You don’t look sick (which is a good thing). Sucks having those really bad headaches or migraines; especially at night when all you want to do is sleep! Hope you are feeeling better now :)

      • Phyrra

        Especially when I’m sick, often sleep is the only thing to make me feel better.

      I love it, you look so pretty and fresh! I hope you’re better now.

      I think you look great despite only 2,5 hours of sleep! I’d have puffy eyelids and red eyes.

      Love what you did with the make-up: looks very dewy and fresh.

      • Phyrra

        I felt so awful. Bleh. I feel awful today, too.

      Very beautiful look! I hope you’re doing better now.

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Roxcat. Unfortunately I’m worse today.
