Makeup Of The Day – BerriesĀ 

Sometimes I don’t feel like going full tilt with the dramatic makeup, but yet I don’t feel like doing a 100% nude/natural look either.  Usually on these in between days I will go for a middle toned blush and lipstick color like a nice rich berry that isn’t too dark or deep.  MAC’s Amplified Cream Lipstick in Craving is perfect on these days and is also nicely hydrating on these cold winter days.

  
Darn this winter light situation…

Anyway, then I put my nose ring back in and made my nose really, really mad.  Probably should have done this before makeup.

Makeup of the day – Urban Decay Vice 4 + Kat Von DĀ 

Today’s makeup was inspired by being stuck in the house by over a foot of snow!  Somehow, we have managed to not lose electricity.  So, I played.
