Oh! I forgot to mention a few things... You know how my skin is all dry and sensitive around my eyes? Well, I was removing makeup with water (non waterproof mascara so it works). But I'm getting sick of wearing only mascara so I tried using unscented mineral oil to remove my mascara. After two days, my skin was red and irritated which was odd because unscented mineral oil is really gentle. So I went back to water and I started thinking maybe my cotton pads were irritating me. Saturday night, my boyfriend and I went to the opera and I was not to be deterred from wearing eye makeup (I was good though, one eyeshadow, one liner, mascara, and no concealer even though I still had some redness; I did not want to irritate that area any further). When we got home, I used my gel makeup remover but without using the cotton pad. I just rinsed everything off with water. Voila! No irritation!
I still need to wear mostly mascara because I'm trying out my lipsticks. Discovered that MAC Twig doesn't do anything for me when I'm not wearing eye makeup. Discovered that bright reds and pinks do a LOT for my face when wearing no eye makeup. So I want to go through all my lipsticks before I get to eye stuff again.
Speaking of eye makeup, I went to the market with my boyfriend. We bought some flowers. Dang! I forgot the name. Marguerite in French. They're the "he loves me he loves me not" flowers... Anyhow, these ones have a yellow-green center and deep burgundy petals. I want these for my wedding... Anyhow, I want to try something like that on my eyes. A yellow-green like MAC Bitter with a deep burgundy like MAC Sketch or Nars New York (more understated). Maybe even mix in some MAC Fiction or Tarnish to add a deeper green (like the stems). Flowers are my favourite source of colour combination inspiration :) Flowers just know how to be pretty...
