ELF eyeshadow in Pink Ice to highlight

MAC Brun eyeshadow to line upper lid, and to fill brows

[Face]

Buff'd foundation in Antique

"New" hairstyle:

I say "new" in quotation marks because its probably 3-4 weeks old now. It looks almost the same as the old style, but the stylist made the middle-top portion more layered for increased volume. I'm still having trouble keeping the part though. Most mornings the part moves towards the center - it doesn't like staying on one side :(

lovely wash of color :)

i like the "new" haircut too - maybe it's just the way you have your hair in the photo, but it looks like you got heavier bangs as well

Rae said...

Ooh, very rocker-chic! I think I like the cut, though it does make you look even younger!! :P

SUGABUM said...

I really, REALLY love your hair!

Dang, you look fierce in that new haircut. =]

Alyssa said...

You look good with bangs like that! :)

I like your bangs! It looks light and I like the uneven-ness of it! You can try bobby-pinning it while you go to bed (if you shower at night). And then style and fix it in the morning. Usually that helps.

Your hair is very cute!! It does look a bit voluminous too.

Trang said...

how much did you buy the LORAC Showstopper palette for? if you remember ^^

Fei said...

WOW. Bangs make you look different from usual! I like it. :)

I buy any non-Ardell lashes from Asian beauty stores. Yes, that's very vague. :\ I think Red Cherry's also available online, but they're def on my list-o-favorites!

omg, your hair is awesome! it's the hairstyle that i've always wanted but didn't know exactly how it looks overall.. esp the bangs... it looks like you can leave it straight down or sweep it to the side. awww.. i want that kinda bangs! i'm gonna have to save your picture and show it to my stylist and hope to the gods it'll come out the same way!
