Red Smokey Eye & Nude Lip | KimandMakeup

This look came about after I had a long day.  Nothing dramatic happened, just had one of those Wednesday slumps that make every little thing seem so frustrating. To make myself feel better, I went into pamper mode.  When I got off work I headed to gym for a good workout, got home and took a shower, applied a fresh layer of self tan, put on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, poured myself a good IPA, and put on a full face of makeup to go absolutely nowhere.

I wouldn’t usually think that red and silver would be a good combination, but this look turned out very nicely in my opinion.  The red matte had nice contrast with the cool toned silver and really made it pop out.  I highly recommend this strategy for turning a bad day around (minus the alcohol maybe lol).  Putting on makeup is weirdly so therapeutic for me.
