Some days, some very unfortunate days, my right eyelid decides to be an annoying little bugger and refuse to co-operate. How? By thinking "hey, I want to be like a monolid" and then folding in on itself.
It then becomes this super hooded lid and at one glance it appears like I have one double eyelid and one monolid. Super peeving!
The best way to deal with this, makeup-wise, is to throw on a dark shade all over the lids and then blend it lighter towards the crease. It's the most 'whatever' method and it works if I don't wish to spend time blending and correcting my usual outer-v method to fit both eye shapes.
The outcome? Well, it ends up looking a little something like this...
With the odd eyelid fold, the lashes on the right eye (your left) appear more prominent and obvious than the other. Pfft!

I have no idea why my hair looks super ultra volumized there but that pouffy-ness makes it look like I hopped out of some 80s television sitcom.
While I love how my hair looks in person, I'm actually trying to get used to how it photographs. Who knew that a slight shift in my parting would make my face seem different on camera, at least in terms of framing and whatnot. I don't know if I am just scrutinizing myself too much but I'm trying, once again, to find that almost fail-proof angle that I can rely on when snapping pictures.
That aside, I dug out the Too Faced Glamour-to-go pocket palette to use with this look! More about this palette in future. For now, here's a what goes where:
Shade 01 - Focus color near the lashline, blend out to the crease
Shade 02 - Blend along the crease, mainly the inner corner
Shade 03 - Blend lightly along the outer corner (couldn't escape my habit)
Shade 04 - Blend out harshlines along the crease
Shade 05 - Highlight!
Tada, really simple look and while I wouldn't call it my lazy look since it does require some blending and evening out on both sides, it's still rather quick to throw on.
I still love my neutrals but due to my darn lid issue I'm really trying to perfect the whole dark-along-lashline and blended out near the crease sort of look.
Do you wear that sort of look regularly? Any tips on how to best blend the shades or lay them down?
Thanks for reading, hope your weekend is going fab!
