A stressed-out FOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 12 - 2013

I’m currently sitting in the middle of a big pile of steaming pooh, otherwise known as “someone forgot that a child might need a passport to leave the country and there are mere DAYS in which to fix this stupidity”.  I have been rushing around like a blue-assed fly in an attempt to gather photos, counter-signatories, and application forms.  I thankfully have an appointment at the passport office on Wednesday to sort my idiotic mess out.

The fact that I have to drive to Wales in order to do this as I couldn’t get a fast-track appointment in London is making my forehead vein throb a little more rapidly than normal.

It’s to this end that I’m asking you to forgive a FOTD post.  In fairness, it features the eyeshadow quad that I reviewed earlier today, so is at least… relevant.

It’s also pink. purple. purplink.

If I do say so myself, how nice is that lip colour?  I do not wear Bobbi Brown’s Rich Lip Color in Mod Pink anywhere near enough.  It’s blue-toned without going all Minaj-freaky-I’m-not-sixteen-anymore on my face.  If you want a blue-pink that doesn’t make you look like a mental deficient, it’s worth checking out.

The eyes are courtesy of the BareMinerals A List palette I reviewed earlier.  I used the purple shade both in the crease, and as a liner.  The pink is on the lid and the white highlight across the browbone.  I used a smidge of the black in the outer corner.

You know, the real irony is that I remembered to get her an E111 European Health Insurance Card.  Who remembers shit like that and yet forgets the passport?

*sigh*

* p.s.  Look again at the FOTD!  This unwanted stress has given me grey hair.  Bitch too busy stressin’ to do her roots.

    You’re stunning! Wouldn’t be able to tell what so ever that you’re stressed from looking at your porcelain skin!

    That’s how you look when stressed? You look awesome! When I’m stressed, I’m lucky if I put makeup on at all. 😉

    Haha! This passport thing has happened to me TWICE! Totally possible to get everything else sorted and forget about the passport.

    In spite of that, you look great.

    Chickadee – watch out for speed cameras coming into Newport, there’s a real stinker of a 30mph one on the dual carriageway. There’s a lovely cafe round the corner from the passport office called Cedars.

    I forgot to get a passport right before a road trip to Canada one year. Luckily, my friend reminded me about six weeks before I’d need it, since there’s really no such thing as “fast-tracking” a passport in the United States – at least not in a span of days. 😛

    Your skin looks amazing, though. I’ve heard a lot of great things about Bourjois foundation on various blogs. Shame it’s not available here in the States!

  12. I really love how these colours look on you, you’re beautiful! x
