Politically Pretty: The Look!

Finally–my Politically Pretty submission. It is no surprise that I love having FUN with make-up. While I am conservative (uhhh, not politically) throughout the week because of work, I enjoy nothing more than doing crazy, funky and out of this world looks.

Now the story behind my look: It just makes sense to show tribute to Barack Obama. While I can’t pretend that I agree with every statement that he has said, I would be remiss if I did not show my pride for this man. HE is what I dreamed about but thought would never happen. To think that little Black girls may grow up in the White House…I just—can’t express how happy this makes me.

And no, I don’t think Obama can save America. No, I don’t like him just because he’s Black. To be honest, I have never been extremely patriotic; I think it’s because I know my history. But that’s a blog post for RoaR blog. 😉

Anyway…that was the inspiration behind my look. And since I love the logo, I decided to run with that.

I used:

MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW45
CoverGirl Queen Natural Hue Minerals Bronzer
Stila Convertible Color in Rose

MAC Technakohl liner in Graphblack
Milani Lip pencil in Bonfire
NYX pencil in Sapphire
Urban Decay Glide-on liner in Lucky
MAC Eyebrow pencil in Stud (brows)
NYX pencil in White

MAC Tendertone in Hot ‘N Spicy

There it is!
