Face of the Day - Nude 'Tude Palette by theBalm

My first official #FOTD post!  I have never done a full face of the day post, mainly due to my inability to properly capture my look in a photo.  It always seems to look one way in person, and completely different on camera.  I would try and use some fun colours like greens or purples, and then I'd try to take a picture of it, and it would just come out super sheer and minimalist/natural-looking, which I promise you, it is not, when you see me face to face - let's be honest, sparkly green eyelids don't really scream "I'm going for the natural look, today".  But that's okay, because there's nothing wrong with having fun with your make-up, and going a little 'outside the box'.  But there IS something wrong, when your camera won't capture it. Grrr......*shakes fist*

Long story short, the lighting, and my camera were semi-cooperating today, so here we go :)

IMATS Toronto 2014 + Haul

As I continue looking back at 2014, I am also posting all of the things that got lost and found in the great computer disaster of 2014 (Long story short, my recently-bought, 4 month old computer stopped working, the store I bought it from tried to charge me an extra $100 to save my files, and my pops managed to get my computer to work long enough to retrieve my important files, like my pictures).

My files are safe and sound, so let's take a look inside IMATS Toronto 2014...
