For today's look I did not have a plan of what shadows/colors I wanted to use. I just started grabbing random stuff and ended up with this. All I had in mind was that I did not want to do a neutral look.
Even though I went out in the middle of the day and even though the only place I went to was my driving school, I decided to do something a little smokier - although this is really more day-time smokey to me since it's so mild.
Why smokier? Because I am starting work tomorrow (Gasp!) and I am sure that is the start of a neutral rut for me. Granted I can still do 'heavier' looks on weekends but what I have learnt from my internship period is, I do prefer letting my skin rest on Saturday and Sundays. If I can help it I would wear little to no makeup since I am putting it on Monday - Friday.

I don't normally do this but here's a shot of the items I had used on my eyes. I decided to include an explanation in this LOTD since I did 'throw-on-and-go' resulting in using a number of products rather randomly.
Here is a breakdown of the individual colors I used within the palettes/quads in terms of placement and all.
1. Models Prefer (Taupe Shade) -
Blend all over lid
2. ELF Transformers (Blue) -
Blend on outer 3/4 of the lid over Taupe shade
3. NYX Single Shadow in Atlantic -
Pat lightly on outer corner
4. 28 Color Palette (Off-white) -
place on inner corner of the eye
5. 28 Color Palette (Mid-Brown) -
Blend in crease where taupe/blue stops
6. 28 Color Palette (Beige-White) -
Incase it seemed so, I haven't got my hair cut or anything, it was merely braided. The bits falling infront are the layers that tend to loosen themselves after awhile. Though I must say, I have been thinking of geting my hair cut at about shoulder-length... but of course I don't have the guts to. One day - one day I will cut it, I just haven't decided when.
I'll end this post with a photo of what I have on my nails right now.
A simple variation to the white french tips. I figured it's best to keep it simple for work (for now!) but I still wanted to make it look interesting at the same time. It is just something about french tips, I've always liked having them on.
Thank you all so much for reading and I'll see how often I can manage to update while working!
