Easter Monday EOTD

So, Easter is almost over, for me personally it's been a good one; lots of get togethers with friends and family, and warm and sunny weather :) I hope you've had a good one too!

I decided on a smokey look today; we are going to my Mom's for an Easter Monday barbecue later this evening. I love barbecue :)


Shade descriptions:
  • Mirror Dust - A deep, dark high-shimmer silvery taupe that looks brown or silvery-grey, depending on how you're looking at it.
  • Bedazzled - Bedazzled is a gorgeous creamy color laced with gold, giving the appearance of fine riches.
  • Lumeria - A mixture of orange, gold, and pink create a color that is one to have...

Hi Lucy!
Thank you!
Nothing special, just an ordinary curling iron, ya know ;)

Hi Phyrra!
Thank you!
It's not often I have the time to do both hair and makeup; most of the days I have to settle for either one or the other...and it usually comes down to makeup = ponytail hair... :D
