Simple Pink and Blue LOTD with Bright Lips

I actually went out last weekend. WEIRD! I usually stay home on the weekends and catch up on jewelry/homework or watch tv. I really have no life, guys, it's pretty sad. BUT, I actually did go out on Saturday so I had an excuse to dress up a little bit. Pink and blue is my favorite color combination of all time. It's pretty when it's bright, but I wanted to keep this look soft so I could wear a fun lipstick.
Yes, that's a scepter around my neck, and yes, it's ridiculous. Ridiculously awesome.

I used Persephone Minerals "Small Lady" on the lid (pink) and Persephone Minerals "Princess Mercury" on the lower lashline (blue). That's pretty much it besides the basic primer, mascara, and eyeliner. The lipstick I used is MAC's "Style Curve." It IS a pink lipstick, but it's actually a bit more purple-toned in real life than it wants to appear in photos. It looks straight up purple in the tube.

As you can see, my hair is up, which is weird for me. I never ever ever wear my hair up because I think it makes me look really boyish. The side thing works, though! All I did was pull it into a low side ponytail, then curl small pieces and loop them and pin them up. I'm not a hair person AT ALL so all I can do is easy stuff. I think this turned out pretty decent considering that.
Speaking of hair, you can say goodbye to this "brown-trying-really-hard-to-be-red" hair color. I bought some Jerome Russel Punky Color from Morgana Cryptoria a while back and it just came in. I bought Plum, Red Wine, and Vermillion and it's all going in my hair as soon as possible. I've never been one for traditional hair colors, so I'm going back to funky hair. I'll for sure post pictures whenever I do it.

Sorry for the "meh" post today, I promise I'm going to have a good one up soon of lip swatches from the 2011 Morgana Cryptoria lipsticks. Until then, have a lovely evening!
