I realize this is very, very early on Friday Morning… But if you want the reason this is posted so late, it’s at the bottom of this post. I had wanted to get this up much earlier- but I just didn’t have any “fight” left in me today, and motivation was about as fast moving as frozen molasses.
Aquarius (?) (Greek: ????????, “Hudrokhoös”) is the eleventh astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation Aquarius. In astrology, Aquarius is considered a “masculine”, positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered an air sign and is one of four fixed signs. Aquarius has been traditionally ruled by the planet Saturn, and, since its discovery, Uranus has been considered a modern ruler of this sign. Being the eleventh sign of the zodiac, Aquarius is associated with the astrological eleventh house.

Anyways- this is my collaboration look to coincide with Wendi’s from Makeup Zombie. We’re continuing out weekly collaborations of themed looks… This marks is the second week in the Zodiac cycle. Using Hi-Fi Cosmetics 2011 Zodiac Collection mineral eye shadows, we’re creating our own looks without telling the other what we’re doing. Without any further ado- I give to you Aquarius.

I am wearing FreshLook ColorBlend contacts in Eden. They are reflective shimmery lenses which emphasize the “ring” around your eye (defines it as a darker color) and gives the hint of blue-green you might catch in some of my pictures. Not many blue-eyed gals have success with these lenses, but I love them because of their subtlety. They look pretty amazing on darker eyed people- but I still love them just the same! It’s the reflective quality I adore the most!
What do you think about this week’s look?
