Self centered time or how to get a good self protrait...

I had let myself "go" for the last three or so years and as you might have read in my last post
I decided to "get a grip" in 2010 and to look more after myself.
So far so good...

As part of this change I started to wear makeup everydays.
This started two wars:

-At home with the oh so known arguement of:
"if you do that it must mean that you have another bloke..."
As if I had enough energy to go after another guy when I have to fight teeth and nails for the "wright" to take care of myself...

-At work: Some of my coleagues do wear makeup
so I thought it would be okay with me but OH NO!
As I never used to wear makeup before at work,
it was obvious when I turned up with mascara and a thin line of green liner.
It was as if hell broke loose!
Then came the argument of what was aloud and what wasn't,
how could black liner be okay but not green...
All that to ban makeup all together to then allow it again after a "briefing" with the HR...
And all that in just one day!!!
Oh my god!!!! I can say that I wasn't miss popularity on that monday...

Anyway, as I started to put on makeup daily, my interest in this "art" grew.
I discovered those two AMAZING blogs: Mon blog de fille (in french but can be translated) and Makeup your Jangsara (in english) that are all about oh so gorgeous makeup and how to do it
which led me to another thing to spend my money on (as I decided to go onto a stash diet): new makeup and other related produces.

As I start to feel better about how I look, I decided to go out today to take some pics of my makeup trials and maybe get a new profile photo.
I love the effect I achieved although it is far from perfect.
I have always used neutrals colours but I went here for something totally bold and different and it was so worth it!


Thanks for looking!

I don't know what your job is, but I can't imagine a workplace being able to BAN makeup!

great shading on the eyeshadow

Bourjois does great colours at reasonable prices, MAC is the best in humid weather
