FOTD Grunge Style

Hello again my lovely readers! I promised that I would start posting more frequently and I'm determined to do just that. Today I put together a quick FOTD featuring my Maybelline Colorsensational Vivid lipstick in Vibrant Mandarin. I was going to do a review of the lipstick tonight, but my husband is out of town working for the night and my daughter is being totally crazy and refuses to sleep so I have to keep it short and sweet. This lipstick is so bright and, well, vivid, that I had to keep the rest of the look rather subdued so as not to look like a hot mess, so I decided to go with a punk/grunge look and it turned out quite well. As always with my FOTDs I will list the products after the pictures. Hope you guys dig it!!





Face Products Used: NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Mont Blanc; e.l.f. Studio Blush & Bronzer Contouring Cream; e.l.f. Studio Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter.
Eye Products Used: A black eyeshadow from my e.l.f. Little Black Beauty Book Cool Python Edition that I smudged over my lid; CoverGirl Lash Blast Luxe in Black Platinum. I also took my foundation and bronzer over my entire eye.
Lip Product Used: Maybelline Colorsensationals Vivid in Vibrant Mandarin.

I hope you guys liked this look, I'm a pretty big fan of it. It's so simple and can be dressed up or down depending on what you wear and how you do your hair. I took a hot iron to my hair the day before yesterday, so it looks naturally straight instead of it's usual insanity, and I just brushed it with a deep side part. And I'm not gonna lie, I am super happy with the way my hair looks this way. It's finally grown out enough that the bangs stay to one side pretty well and it frames my face nicely. But I'm going to stop talking about my hair now as I could seriously just go on and on about how much I love it right now. Seriously, I think it's flippin awesome and it has me all sorts of crazy.

I should have the review of this lipstick up tomorrow or the next day depending on how well my daughter is behaving and when my husband gets home, but this is all I have for you tonight. I hope you're all enjoying the summer weather, and if you're in one of the locations that has been devastated by extreme weather my thoughts and good wishes go out to you. Til next time!

  2. I really love your hair and this makeup look looks amazing on you :) I really love that lipstick :)
    My hair is insanely long at the moment, it touches my bum :D I am thinking about cutting it soon but I have not decided yet :) It has been surprisingly hot here in Finland lately so having long hair has been rather painful :D

    1. Thanks so much!! I'm a pretty big fan of this look, and looks like it. Simple but totally pretty.
      And I've never actually had long hair. I've always wondered what it would be like to have hair that was like halfway down my back, but I always get frustrated while it's growing and shave it off. Then the process repeats. I'm really trying to stick to my guns and grow my hair out this time. I know how to do some really cool hair designs and I never get to really try them out on myself because my hair never makes it past my shoulders.
