natural browns.

i'm feeling pretty influenced by autumn. this is definitely the longest i've gone without bright pink lipstick, and i'm admittedly being really boring with my make-up as of late. woody colours such as browns, taupes, greens and beiges are certainly the order of the day. if i was going out i would team it with a bright orange but i didn't want to alienate the people in my international environmental law class, ha.

it really annoys me when my make-up doesn't show up in photographs properly, so you'll just have to take my word for it that my eye make-up was very, very brown indeed.

whilst rummaging through my stash looking for such colours, i found a peculiar-looking little pot with gorgeous khaki pigment inside which i had forgotten about for the longest time. i honestly don't know what brand it is - when i turned it over, it said 'jade' on the back with other little bits and pieces in hebrew...

nails - no 7 (dollar).

... who else can claim to own israeli make-up?! that's right, i'm just that worldly. what is hilarious about this little pot is that i actually bought it whilst on holiday in iran. exactly - i'm not just worldly, but am also solving the middle east crisis through make-up. can someone just hand me my nobel prize already? seriously? look, i'm just sitting right here. unfortunately it isn't fantastic quality, and certainly isn't as beautiful as it is in the pot. who knows, perhaps i'm just using it wrong... but it is a disappointment when the shade is so pretty.

definitely need to get an eyelash perm soon, oh man.

face: 17 primer, mac studio fix fluid (nc35), collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer (#2), no 7 skin illuminator (peach), mac mineralize skinfinish (medium plus).
eyes: urban decay primer potion, no 7 eyeshadow (khaki), last shade in revlon quad (in the buff), urban decay eyeshadows (twice baked, vert), maybelline gel liner, rimmel kohl pencil, benefit gilded highlighter (tangerine gold), max factor false lash effect mascara, mac eyebrow pencil (stud), body shop lash & brow gel, my mysterious jade pigment.
cheeks: nars multiple (portofino).
