A few friends and I went to Metal Mania at The House of Blues last night here in L.A. My friend gave us free tickets because his friend was going to play in a band. Now, I don't listen to Metal. I don't really understand that type of music because it's nothing but noise to me lol. But I couldn't turn down a free ticket because I've never been to The House of Blues, and I guess I should be more open to other type of music right? Well, I only lasted 2 hours inside lol. The bands were extremely good for what they do...All that head bangin' up and down, screaming and more screaming and awesome guitar and drum skills. They were really, really good and I meant it. But I couldn't stand it. It was just too loud for me and it even made my head hurt really bad O_o. Oh well, I tried.
Here is the makeup look I wore. I did a Smoky Midnight Blue eyes and Pale Pink lips. It was a night time event, so I went for a dramatic makeup. The main eye shadow I used on my lids is NYX single eye shadow in Frosted Ocean. It's one of my favorite eye shadows from NYX. See another makeup look using this shadow here. It's a rich midnight blue with lots of shimmers. I love it. Just make sure you apply it before your face makeup because you will get tons of fall outs. For my cheeks I dusted Nars blush in Orgasm, a gorgeous peachy pink with gold shimmers that pretty much goes with anything. If you don't have it, then you can use other dupes like Mark Good Glowing blush in After Glo (buy it here) or Wet n Wild Color Icon blusher in Pearlescent Pink (Swatch here). Then to compliment the dark, dramatic eyes, I kept my lips light (you don't want dark lips and dark eye makeup) and went for a pale pink. Wet n Wild Mega Last lip color in Think Pink, a matte pale pink was the perfect choice.
A little cam whoring using my small Canon digital camera. I don't know if you notice, but I lost a bit of weight, yay! My face looks slimmer whoohoo ^_^.
