FOTD: Pretty in Pink

Another day, another essay completed! Somehow I've managed to write over 7500 words this week, only another 5000 to go and then I'm FREE!...for about a week or so.

Even if I'm not going anywhere fancy (or anywhere at all!) I just don't feel complete without makeup. So a little FOTD for you today girlies - how to look fabulous when you're crying in your room over your 389457459738905 word essays !

A heavy cover foundation (necessary for all girls like me who have shit skin), a thin line of kohl eyeliner and a quick flick of mascara, a little rosy cheek with some deep pink blush, and a pink lipstick with lipbalm. VOILA!

I've decided to give lipstains another chance. After hating the first Maybelline one I bought, I decided to buy two more (logic??) from NYC. Everytime I tested them in the shop, they glided so effortlessly onto my lips and they looked great, but when I brought them home and tried them again, they were dry and didn't produce any colour. I bought more to try and apply them in other ways in case I was applying them wrong? Do you have to wet the tips before application? I apply lipbalm ontop instead of underneath so that the nib of the pen doesn't get too sticky. Any other suggestions? This NYC one works quite well but "16Hours" is a bit of an exaggeration!
