Another attempt at Flapper makeup

Hello Everyone,

I'm sure all of you already heard about the Japanese tragedy that is unfolding right as we speak. I don't have any relatives in Japan, but I do have some friends and a deep care for the country. I've been in a sort of shock since yesterday. I'll be donating to RedCross as well as donating to the Charity Blog Sale ran by Please check it out and donate any beauty items. You can also follow them on twitter @BBCBS.

That said, I did manage to pull myself together to put some makeup on today. Remember my post on attempting to do a Flapper makeup look? Today I tried it again and I'm much happier with the results.

I deliberately left my eyebrows bare, because I wanted the emphasis to be on the eye makeup.

I realize that photos in my kitchen are not the most glamorous, but that was the place with the best lightening.

My husband didn't like the makeup at all lol. He said I have raccoon eyes and look like female version of Marylin Manson. Yes, I still love him because he actually takes time to comment on my makeup and most importantly NOTICES it :)

I wanted more matte finish on my cheeks, while being bold and bright. I had to tone it down a lot because at first I applied too much. After toning down with powder, I applied a little bit more .

Although this photo is blurry, I love it. The wind hit just at the right moment.
