Some days, I want a little drama without being too noticeable.
I like understated looks because when people do notice, the compliments feel more sincere. Red lipstick and/or colorful eyeshadows are considered over the top for me. But colored contacts are ok since you can’t tell unless you’re really looking at my eyes.
Adding half-length false lashes balance out the look of the circle lenses.
It’s funny how I end up with some of my beauty products. For example, the NYX false lashes came in a volunteer goodie bag for a summer film festival! I can’t argue with free!

To me, it takes a lot of chutzpah to have a photo without any makeup on. I’m not that brave yet.
I used to think that using Photoshop to remove zits, moles, freckles, and other “unsightly” blemishes on your face was perfectly ok since that’s the common practice for actors’ head shots and studio photography.
When it comes to blogging, I’m impressed when people are honest and don’t Photoshop their blemishes. I want to be that way too so all these photos are completely untouched…no Photoshop, nothing…except for the watermark. You can tell that I don’t have an SLR too because they’re not as crystal clear and sharp, but I think I did pretty well despite that.
And you can never negate the benefits of having good lighting, it makes up for the lack of fancy equipment.
