Greetings and Happy New Year from your blogger on behalf of all the dolls here at Queen of Hearts and Modern Love! Resolutions are a funny thing – I have many for 2018, but for the purpose of this post being a readable length, I will share only one with you all today.
It is…*fierce drumroll*… to experiment with makeup a lot. Like, a lot. To not wear the same face every day, as I have done for the past four years. To change up my makeup look once a week instead of once a year. Seems like a silly thing for a New Years Resolution, as it would probably be more productive and sentimental to say that my resolution is to, say, value friendships more, or do more good deeds, or stop eating chocolate every day. Those are resolutions, but damn, all I really want is to establish 2018 as a year of shameless self-expression and colorful glamour.
It is no secret that I am still mastering the art of makeup documentation (that can be another New Years Resolution), but this is a slight twist on my default makeup face, which involves a *crucial* moisturizing, some light foundation, brushing and filling in the brows, a sweep of mascara, and a thick smattering of lipstick. Today, I’ve added two Modern Love Cosmetics Shadows to the mix – Denim and Gold Minx, because blue and gold are a match made in heaven.
As we transition into (hypothetical) nighttime, I decide that jazzing it up even more is a good way to go:
Colorful eyeshadows are your best friend on flashy occasions. While combining a statement eye with a statement lip has been a faux pax since the beginning of time, I think that we are finally entering an age where people are unafraid to step into unexplored territory, as I plan on doing with this look on New Years Eve. Here, I honor Prince, as I strive to do each day, with the aptly named Purple Reign Liquid Matte Lipstick. I combine it with a sweep of “Whatever” eyeshadow, in a positively smashing orange.
All of the cosmetics listed above are available here in the store as part of our Modern Love Cosmetics collection. Also included in-store are an array of lip glosses, gel eyeliner, and mascara. There are makeup wipes and sampling applicators, so come in, try on all the shades (separately or at the same time), and ask advice from one of our makeup savvy salesgals, because your NYE sparkle is truly a force to be reckoned with.
