Seven Deadly Sins: Vanity

[Vanity] An inflation of mind upon slight grounds; Empty pride inspired by one's personal abilities or decorations; Excessive desire for notice/approval; Ostentation; Conceit.
Yikes lol. Vanity (also known as Pride) is the sin that's considered to be the most "serious" of all the sins. The reason for this is because it's considered to be the OG; The source from which the other sins arise. The color associated with this sin is violet.. but I used blue. lol Mainly 'cause I already used purple in my Lust & Sloth one. So to show pride/vanity, I wanted really flashy, sparkly eyes & muted lips. I show the excessive self admiration in the eyes. & I wanted to incorporate something that looked like mirrors. On the lips, I used a light pink, I wanted to kind of show emptiness.

I cut up two of my old earrings that I haven't used in probably like two years (no kidding) & glued them under my eyes with lash glue. Haa, it looks kind of weird but I wanted something that looked like mirrors near my eyes. I used the lighter blue on my lid and again above the crease. I used the darker blue in the crease & the dark grey to define a little bit. I used the two light colors in WnW's Vanity palette (how fitting!) for my highlight. Then took both blues again on the outer lower lash line.

I wanted to show the emptiness in the lips. So I went with pale pink lips. I just noticed recently, that of all the lipsticks I have.. I think I use this one the most. lol It's such a pretty color & I know I say that all the time but I really love it. Nude Attitude, Pink Pout, & this one are probably my most reached for lipsticks. You really can't go wrong with either of them.

Hope ya'll liked my take on Vanity!
I had been sitting on this look for almost two weeks lol My hair's already almost completely faded now.
I wish it was still this color. Le'sigh. Haa well thanks for checking it out! (:
