License to Drive

Didn'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!

You look great in that picture, it shows that you know much more about make up than you did in the past :D
