I have not been in the mood to play with my make up lately and I think it's because it's been miserable outside most of the time which in effect brings me certain degrees of low mood :(

Gosh! It's freezing outside that jumpers, scarves and gloves are coming out. As much as I love that romantic feeling that winter brings us, I can't deny that I hate being painfully cold. Why has it got be bloody freezing? Grrr!

Anyway, you're probably wondering... what has it got to do with FOTD? Exactly... none whatsoever ;) Just having a little bit of a moan ;)

This morning... as my usual mornings of being off work and get on with my parental responsibilities such as dropping my little boy at school, I don't get much time to do my make up. However, this morning, I felt like wearing colour but didn't have plenty of time to do that. I checked the time and I only had 5 minutes to do my eye make up. I had my Front Cover eye palette infront of me so I picked it up and applied a bit of eye shadow and I was off.

When I came home from Sam's school this is how I look... I thought... Yikes! I looked like death! I've decided to add more colour to give myself that 'pick me up mood' and I came up with this. I guess, I looked a bit better than I did earlier.

sis! and I just chatted with you !!! I was laughing when you said you look like death! You don't! You're just not used to having nude colored lips, and you're used to red lips as me, I felt different if I used red lips! LOL We have our favorites! :) But that color is very lovely, simply natural! :) I would be lazy to play with make up too if weather's not cooperating :)

Take care sis!

Ha ha ha! Sis! You're such a sweetie! ;) I'm used to having colours on my face that when I haven't got any of those my face looks dead. It really is freezing at the moment and I'm afraid, we might have bad winter this year. Get me out of here!!!
