This was all of the make up that I brought to Scandinavia with me. And I never touched that eye liner (too much work and who was I trying to impress?). It doesn’t dry fast enough and gets everywhere if I’m not taking my time. (That’s what I get for purchasing $3 eyeliner, whatever.)

That make up bag is from the Flying Tiger near Madison Square Park. They’re actually Danish so I saw them all around Scandinavia. They’re just called “Tiger” abroad though. 

Though truth be told, this is how much make up I usually wear every day anyways – with Burts Bees lip cream. 

This is about how much make up I’ve been wearing lately. For New Year’s Eve I added a bit of glitter eye liner and gold eye shadow, but aside from that, it’s been this: Origins blush (color unknown, it’s older), no name brand liquid eyeliner from Duane Reade (totally cost, like, $1.99), Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, and Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm (in Spring Splendor).

Despite my obsessive habit of wearing sweatpants and boots this week, I was stopped by an old man (probably 70-ish years old) in Trader Joe’s. He then said, “Besides my wife, you’re the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. I just didn’t want to tell you that in front of your friend and embarrass you!” I told my friend after and she melted and said, “Oh my god! I wish he would’ve said that in front of me! That’s so cute!" 

Although I’d created quite an expectation to wear at least one color from the Urban Decay’s Electric Palette every day, I guess sometimes less is more.
