Happy Monday guys! I'm sitting here on the couch with a big mug of coffee (another night of 3-4 hour sleep), watching a blanket of snow falling on our beautiful City of Ottawa and trying to focus enough to make this blog post.

I'm a big fan of cat eyeliner and often prefer softer shades to make this look more daytime appropriate. So I wanted to use a deep navy to line my eyes except my go to Bobbi Brown Cobalt Ink is drying up so I had to combine with a pencil liner. Does anyone know how to revive dried up gel liner? I paired the eyes with bright warm pink lips. Very spring in the dead of winter :D

Here's a pic:

And this is what I used:

For face: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation (BR20) as my foundation and used MAC Ladyblush creamblend blush on the apple of my cheeks. I finished with a dusting of Ben Nye Translucent Powder.

For eyes: Used UDPP as base and then applied a layer of MUFE #5 (coral) Aqua cream pot on the lid. Applied MUFE #15 e/s above crease and MUFE #112 e/s in the crease. Added MAC Blanc Type e/s as highlight and MAC Creme de Miel e/s (LE- pale gold) as tearduct brightener. I lined my eyes with Lise Watier Marin e/l dipped in Bobbi Brown Cobalt ink gel liner. I finished with two coats of L'Oreal Voluminous Dramatic Lashes mascara.

For lips: applied MAC Impassioned l/s first and then MAC Marquise d' l/s (LE - shimmering light peach) lightly over it to tone down the brightness.

This look was worn to brunch at one of my friends place. She has a 2.5 year old who loves Sofia. So of course I had to snap a picture of Angelina and Sofia together:
