Filter x2

I had absolutely nothing planned for this afternoon, so I decided it would be a good time to catch up on photographing things for the blog. I sat down to do my makeup even if I wasn’t going anywhere and I tried to use as many new products as possible so that I could photograph multiple things in one go.

I don’t normally do that sort of thing…wear makeup without plans of going out, that is. It feels strange and I guess that’s part of reason why the look didn’t turn out well.

I eventually just let that wear off and I wore my eyeglasses in an effort to hide my face. Ick.

Crappy as I felt, I took this photo because I wanted to post it and ask you guys this: What you do when you have a shitty makeup day (and don’t have enough time to take everything off to do it over again)?
