    "Bitter Eggplant"

    I really like this look! We moved on the 1st & it's been stressful getting everything in order. So, I finally fancied myself up! =)

    I used:

    Face:
    MAC P+P primer
    MAC SPF 15 NC 40
    MAC SSF NC 37 (dabbed on the sides of my nose)
    B.E. Mineral foundation in Tan (contour)
    MFFX OJ + Retribution (as blush)
    MFFX Macaroon (highlight)
    MAC Blush in Honour (highlight)

    Eyes:
    UD PP
    MAC Bitter, Carbon, & Black Tied e/s
    MAC Rich Purple pigment
    MAC water-based mixing medium
    Ulta Stardust e/s
    FemmeCouture cream liner in Black
    Rimmel eyeliner pencil in Black Magic
    Rimmel eyebrow pencil in Dark Brown
    MaxFactor 2000 Calorie mascara in Black

    Lips:
    L'Oreal HIP l/g in Inviting








    This is in natural light, however I did fiddle w/ the contrast...



    LOOK...it's Devin - but she's not pregnant! Weird! LOL



    I'm getting my body back...slowly but surely. *SIGH*

    Thanks, everyone, for looking!

    LOVE the eyes! I would have never thought to put those colors together. And you will have your body back before you know it! But, for now I'm sure it's just nice to have your body to yourself again & not be sharing it lol! I remember when my daughter was born, I was just so happy to have my body all to myself again!

    Thank you all! That encouragement concerning that beloved baby weight is also helpful! =) You're all gems!

    You are so gorgeous. You remind me a lot of Kat von Ds sister, Karoline. Before she got the blonde mullet

    I'm gonna try this look.. The eyes are really pretty. And honey, you look pretty damn good for having your 3rd baby a few months ago!
