License to DriveDidn't know this, but when you turn 30, you HAVE to go down to the DMV in person to take a new picture for your driver's license. I initially was dreading the trip and long lines/grumpy staff that I knew would await me, but then came around to seeing this as the opportunity it really was: to finally look my age in my picture! I sometimes get a sideways double-take when I flash my license (is this REALLY you?!), so I was expecting a drastic change between my old & new picture, but this is what I got instead:
Ummm ... I look EXACTLY the same, but with A LOT more makeup on! Which means the double-takes will ensue when I flash my license with no makeup on.
Oh well. On to today's face. I'm experimenting with a heavy lid look, given the fact that the Tarte emphasEYES clay shadow seems to lend itself well to this type of application. I smeared the Bronze shade all over my lid. Then I dabbed a bit of Clinique Quick Eyes cream shadow (Rock Violet) in the middle and along my upper lashline, then spread it out with my fingertips. What I really like about this look is I don't have to wear liner on my top lids, I can get away with only applying it on my bottom waterline. It's a bit "much" for work, but it's all in the name of experimenting!
