How’s your week treating you? I haven’t gotten to do an EOTD/ BOTD post in awhile because I’ve been choosing sleep over makeup. You probably would to if 5am was your wake up call. I’ve also been living out of pressed palettes because of the ease of application, so I haven’t really been doing anything exciting with my makeup.
Except on the weekends, when I bust out all my indies and pigments and bold lip colors and go bananas! This past weekend, I finally sat down with my Hello Waffle September Visage Box and pulled together a totally appropriate work look for Fall, using all the warm colors in this lovely box.
And I had to pair this Fall look with a Fall beer. (Because pairing beer and makeup is normal in my world). So I cracked open my Rogue Pumpkin Patch Ale for a delighful fall inspired combo!
So let’s check it out!
Please enjoy your beer and makeup responsibly.
EOTD:Makeup from Hello Waffle’s September Visage Box. Full box, $30
I used Red Eyes, a warm matte brown all over my eyelid and Half Loaf of Bread, an orangy brown, in my crease and brow. I foiled Fires, a greenish dark brown, with Glamour Doll Eyes Foil me, and used it as a eyeliner on both top and bottom eyelid. And then I followed up with Better Than Sex Mascara.
I liked how easy, warm, and work appropriate this look was for Fall. Fires definitely added some interest to the look, but was subtle enough that I pulled it off in my conservative work place.
Beer of the Day: Rogue Pumpkin Patch Ale
Rogue Says:We made this beer with our own hops, barley and pumpkins.
Rebs Says:This beer caused quite the debate in my household. I personally thought it was just a pleasant, pumpkin beer. Nice pumpkin flavors, good balance of spices, and refreshing. I found the mouth feel to be a bit thin, but no other complaints. Just an average pumpkin beer in my opinion.
Mr. Danger, on the other hand, LOVED it. He claimed he could taste the freshness of the pumpkins (Rogue uses their own pumpkins that they grow). He felt the flavors were perfectly balanced and this leans more towards a pumpkin bread taste than pure pumpkin.
We both agreed the bottle is the bomb diggity and have been using it as a Fall decoration in our house. That’s normal, right?
Rebs’ Rating: 3.5/5
Mr. Danger’s Rating: 4.5/5
That’s it for today, take care, friends!
