I feel like I used to do a lot of Face of the Day and Eye of the Day posts but I haven't been doing much lately because I've been feeling a little creatively stagnant. There is a part of me that can't help but compare what I do to other looks I've been seeing and mine look rather drab in comparison. I think it is all too easy to get into the mindset of trying to strive to be the most creative however I'm much more comfortable doing more simpler looks like this, I certainly don't have the artistic skill to do anything complex.
I had some credit to the Beautylish Shop so I used that to purchase some Lit Cosmetics glitters (three glitters plus the Lit Kit for only $8.00 including shipping, I am the master of scrounging up and using credit). I picked Cayman specifically because I wanted to recreate this look by Queen of Blending. Hers is infinitely more superior but I wanted to try my hand at it anyway.
I hope you enjoy the look!

Cayman is a beautiful turquoise color, a little more green than it appears in the photo. I applied this on top of Sugarpill's Darling Chromalust and it made for a dynamic duo.

You may have noticed the slight blog changes I did because I am super indecisive. I changed the blog tabs from white text on a black background back to black text on a white background. I increased the size of the font to make it easier to read. I've updated the "Indie Swatches" and "Mainstream Swatches" Pages so there should be more recent posts added.
I also decided to reinstall Disqus for commenting purposes. I haven't yet found the perfect commenting system but for now I'll stick with Disqus as I was really displeased with how Blogger's commenting kept glitching up and creating double commenting along with people continuing to leave links. Disqus will also allow me to send you a notification when I reply (hopefully keeping me on my toes about being good and responding!
