Fast & Simple Look Of The Day

I woke up late today and only had 30 minutes to get ready before I left for work. I needed to do something on my face that would be super simple but pretty. I ended up leaving 40 minutes after I woke up, so I was only 10 minutes late to work, but I did the quickest full-makeup job I've done in a while. I really love the Darling Girl eyeshadows I used today, Donner and Dolce Peccato. I also love the Geek Chic shadow I used as a liner, Solid Snake. However, what I absolutely adored the most was the Raining Blood Holo-Gloss. You guys, it is the prettiest red lippie I think I've ever worn. I tried to get a good up-close photo of the gloss on my lips, but none of the photos turned out. Next time I wear it, I'll try again!

Here's the look I created today.
