I actually woke up early today and put makeup on properly, so I thought I'd share it with you guys. A neutral look with the slightest pop of color on the bottom lash line. I've been wearing this sort of look since I was a teen, but my technique has evolved. When I was still a makeup newbie, I would just put on teal liner on the water line and a bit of mascara. But now I go for a neutral eye with the slightteeessttt hint of smokeyness (which is intensified according to my mood and the occasion), and then I like to smudge the teal liner on the bottom.

Yesterday I attended the L'Oreal Cannes Makeup event in ABC Ashrafieh where I got to play around with their new L'or Lumiere collection. My favorite thing about the collection was the new liquid lipstick in the shade "Fuchsia Orchestra". The color is a very pretty fuchsia which I tend to go for a lot, but there was just something different about this particular product. The consistency is on the lip gloss side when you look at it (which I usually HATE), but it goes on oh-so-smoothly and is completely weightless. I ended up wearing that shade for the rest of the day, and even ate a burger from Classic Burger Joint (HIII CBJ!) and the color stayed on pretty well, very impressed!

The lovely folks over at L'Oreal were super nice to give all the bloggers a little goodie bag that included a color riche liquid lipstick to take home, mine was in the shade "Rose Melody 101" which I decided to wear today. Very pretty smooth and natural color, love it!

Last week, Maybelline launched the new #GoExtreme mascara and were also super kind to send me one to give it a try. Oh, my, god. Guys, I'm not joking. But I think this is my new favorite mascara... I will go into more details in my monthly favorites posts.
