  1. i just bought this lipstick because of you! btw, new reader here, tried to post a comment yesterday, don’t think it ever got posted?

  2. Thanks Aimee! I was going for a more dramatic look here (hence the different colors) but for everyday, you can just do a wash of the Birds & Berries.

  3. Nat,

    OMG I was debating that too *lol* I thought of using Lollipop Loving which is more coral but ended up with Victorian since I haven’t worn it in any of the FOTDs.

  4. Angela,

    You will love Victorian! It’s really pretty =)

    I’m sorry about your comment. The spam feature is on so it might have automatically deleted the comment but you should be fine now.

  5. Your eyebrows seem a bit unruly.
    Someone as fond of makeup as you would seem to have thee most perfect brows but yours seem messy. :/ I love your blog I’m not trying to hate, I esp. Love ur fotd’s but your brows kill it! Try a different shade brow pencil its a bit too dark and try not to shape your brows different from what they naturallly are supposed to be. xoxo.

  6. Jessica that is a lie, that sounded like straight haterism to me. Her eyebrows don;t look bad at all.

    I like this look, i really need to buy birds and berries eyeshadow.

  7. That’s funny because I was about to say how much I loveee your eyebrows! I’ve been trying to find the right shape for mine for a while now but I just can’t get it right. You definitely have them right. I don’t know what that girl is talking about. Keep up the great work. (:
