Smokey Eye Saturday

I promise I'm not naked; my hair is hiding my straps.
I'm heading out to my friend Henry's house party, but I got ready freakishly fast so I thought I'd share my FOTN.  I didn't do anything too fancy as it's just going to be a lot of sitting around playing drinking games with the usual suspects, but since a couple of cute boys Facebook RSVP-ed I obvs want to look casually gorgeous but not like I'm wearing too much makeup.
I opted to not wear foundation (or even tinted moisturizer), as my skin is actually in pretty good shape lately but applied Revlon Colorstay Concealer only where absolutely necessary as well as Boots No7 Illuminating Lotion to the high points of my cheekbones.  For my eyes, I'm wearing Wet n Wild Color Icon eyeshadow trio in Silent Treatment and Almay Get Up & Grow Mascara in Black waterproof with e.l.f. Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara to set my brows. I also swept NYC Sunny Bronzer along the underside of my cheekbones and blended into my temples and around the sides of my massive forehead. I finished my look with just a touch of Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink and Burt's Bees tinted lip balm.

Wet n Wild does such a great satiny taupe.

What do you think of this look? What makeup do you typically wear to parties?

P.S. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I got my conch punched on Friday the 13th, but I guess I haven't blogged since then so I made sure it's visible in the first picture.

Collective Waterford Lakes Haul

This afternoon, my mom and I had lunch and did a bit of shopping.  I had a $10 Banana Republic perk (which can also be used at Gap or Old Navy) as well as a Victoria's Secret coupon for a free lace waist hiphugger (love these).  I ended up getting three tank tops from Old Navy (They're having their end of summer sale), just my free lace waist hiphugger (in a cute fishy print) from Victoria's Secret, and a pair of blue-green raw crystal drop earrings from Francesca's.
What do you think about my haul?


P.S. We're redoing the flooring in the guest room (where I usually take my pictures), so I had to resort to using my actual bedroom which, aside from being obnoxiously colorful, is always an awful mess.
