FOTD Purty Persimmon

Before I started beauty blogging I never-ever use to follow trends, mainly because I didn't know what the trends were! Now being fully immersed in the beauty blogging community, I love seeing what the new trends are and trying them out if they tickle my fancy! I seriously love this trend going on, orange lips! And I find it funny because I use to HATE the color orange, I thought it was the ugliest color ever and I would never touch it. After trying some coral lippies I realized orange actually looks really good on me! Now I'm obsessed with orange lipstick! Sooo today's look is neutral eyes using my Urban Decay Naked2 palette and blood orange lips, Wet n Wild's Purty Persimmon!

This is Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color Purty Persimmon, a deep  red/orange. It is super pigmented and only $1.99! I really want 24 Carrot Gold which is more of a coral/orange but I can't find it anywhere. I'm also still looking for a neon orange (like OCC Lip Tar Neon Orange), but it's kind of hard to find a drug store option (since I'm on a tight budget). I plan on doing a post of all my favorite coral/orange lippies with swatches soon!
I tried doing a different shape with my eyeshadow, instead of the regular rounded smokey eye. By making the edge straight and elongating the eye, I don't know what to call it but I love the way it looks!

I'm not excited it's Friday today because I have to work tomorrow, boo! I thought my work was going to make me work 6 days a week from now on (like I use to for 3 years) but luckily they're not! Although I could use the extra hours, having weekends off is very very nice. Work will probably be slow tomorrow so I might be able to sneak a blog post in...I have some nail polish swatches ready but I'm wondering what do yo want to see first...the Wet n Wild Be Jeweled collection or Color Club Electro Candy collection? Let me know! I would also love to know what YOUR favorite orange lippy is! I hope you enjoyed this look and have a great weekend!
