Holiday Hot Mess - Yeah, Screwed Up My Christmas Eve Makeup

... but I'm showing it to you anyway so that you can learn from my mistakes!

First, I used primarily Meow Cosmetics sample packets on my eyes. This isn't a mistake, but I really started digging myself a blue ditch I couldn't get out of.

Second, I just couldn't get equal amounts of shadow on my brush because my samples were still in the little pouches and I was being a dumbass.

Third, I went way overboard on the powder and thus look like a half dead zombie.

Want to see?

Forgive me for not remebering names of colors. I had about 50 samples traveling with me and I got so frustrated with myself and my application I just forgot to take note.

Eyes - Tried to match my earrings.
  • Meow Cosmetics - There are about 3 different blues I don't remember the names of, Bitchy, and another brown-red I can't remember. I was a mess.
  • Liner - Illamasqua Alchemy, which was a good thing
  • Mascara - MAC Plushlash in Plushblack
  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light
  • Meow Cosmetics - another blush sample I don't remember the name of.
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in By Candlelight
  • Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned
  • Nars Lip Gloss in Strawberry Fields
I know there was a good idea in here somewhere. But I think I need to stay away from blues!

I think as a rule I should now only purchase full size Meow Cosmetics Eye Shadows and Blushes. I just can't keep all the samples straight when I'm playing around! You should know that I still love their shadows regardless of my ability to pull off anything correctly here.
