Challenge Look: Politically Pretty


Brittany from Clumps of Mascara and Kia from Yummy411 held a "Politically Pretty" Challenge in which we had to do a FOTD that is political-esque, either representing a party of our choice, or anything related.

Politics is very touchy in general, so I am not even going to talk about it, or who I am voting for sorta thing; but my inspiration behind this FOTD was America in general; our rights, freedom, etc. As much as I represent my home country (Canada, woot woot!), I LIVE in America- the United States of America, and I am PROUD to be here, and I am grateful for the things I have and what WE have in this country as citizens in comparison to some other third world countries, whose children are starving. It's definitely important to have our voice be heard.

Without much further ado, here is my politically pretty FOTD! Don't mind my lovely crooked star, I can't draw stars if my life depended on it! So it's now a nice oddly shaped dancing star! LOL.

What I used:

- Buff'd Mineral Foundation in "Chamois" (too light on me by itself)

- Flag: Mehron Tropical Palette (Red and Blue), WHITE: MUFE Flash Color Pot in White (also the star)
- Outlined with NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in "Milk"
- MAC Fluidline in "Blacktrack"
- L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara
- Ardell Luckies Eyelashes
- MAC Technakohl Eyeliner in "Graphblack"

- MAC l/s in "Port Red"
- MAC lip lacquer in "Fun-plastico"

Funny how i first thought you had the flag of Holland on your face (always look at pics before reading), then is saw the VOTE! and i realized how dumb i was ^^

Hey Nessa! I really appreciate this beautiful FOTD. So many of the blogs I read about a variety of subjects have decided to bring politics into the mix, and it's so refreshing to see at least one that recognizes makeup and looking good doesn't have a political party! Thanks!

I love this design and I love the message!

I just watched the vice presidential debates last night. (ew) I watched the presidential debates last week or the week before, whenever it was on.

I'm all for voting and I love seeing you support it with your makeup!
