363/365 Days of Makeup

By Sheila Arkee

Two more days to go, peeps! I’m excited about crossing the finishing line on the 365 project for the second time!

Little known fact, but before I came up with the idea for the 365 project I was considering shelving this blog completely, and I’m sure glad I didn’t. At the time, my life had hit a rough patch and finding a place for Painted Ladies in the myriad of beauty blogs seemed impossible. And then I realized something … you a) gotta stick with the course, and b) you gotta get a gimmick.

This is extremely true in any field. Heck, it’s something I’m trying to figure out myself in another project I’m working on. Never, ever let anyone tell you that a market is too saturated for newcomers. Where there is a will, there is ALWAYS a way. No ifs, ands, or buts.

Base:  Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Lid: MAC Old Gold Pigment

Outer Lid: MAC Knight Divine

Browbone: La Femme Candlelite

Liner: Inglot #78 Gel Liner

Brows: NYX Eyebrow Cake in Taupe/Ash

Mascara: Too Faced Size Queen

    love it, love it, love it! i’m one of those who are glad you didn’t just let the blog go–i’m most often silent–but love this! the “eyes” have it, for me. i work in an environment that has me masked 90+% of my workday, and the only thing my patients can see are my eyes. i can’t wear “rock star” eyes in an operating room, but since most of the communication is by eyes, i love having new ideas, new products mentioned, new application methods before me. you are my tutor and demo guru. thank you!

    gorgeous! i don’t usually look at eyeshadow ideas (it’s basically impossible for me to apply, i’m mostly blind), but this is just stunning. the gold really makes the look.

    and preemptive congratulations on your second round of 365! having that kind of staying power is so impressive to me.
