Ringing in the New Year

Hi dolls! I hope everyone had an amazing ringing in of 2012. I got dressed up and all nice for what was essentially the first time since my surgery. Here is how it looked:



I unfortunately an still completely immobilized in terms of my left arm, so I could not do any retro hairstyles 😦 Technically, I was breaking the doctor’s orders just putting on my makeup! But I wanted to feel pretty again, so I went for it. I wore white eyeshadow with a champagne color on the brow bone, and a deeper brown color in the crease. I applied black eyeliner and lengthening mascara, as well as Besame rouge. The eyebrows are of course very important, so I started with a pencil for the general form and line, and then filled it in with light-ish brown eyeshadow to set and complete. And naturally, add some finishing powder and red lipstick, and you are set!

As for my ensemble:

Leopard dress – Bettie Page clothing (the back is beautiful)

Cardigan – ModCloth

Earrings – Betsey Johnson

Hair flower – H&M

What was your look for bringing in the new year?

    Such a cute outfit! Hopefully you didn’t hurt your arm more by getting dressed up, but if not it’s just like wrote about feeling pretty – just that feeling can lift your spirits and make you feel better at least on some level and especially on such an occasion. I wore this 40’s/pinup style dress http://www.chicstar.com/storefront/listproducts.aspx?Satin-Straps-Dress&id=8090 with a Black shrug and kitten heels.
