How to Do Your Eye Makeup for Pictures

Ever have one of those days where you feel Krappy (yes with a "K") so you do your makeup like Kim Kardashian (who you just recently heard of) in the hopes that your self esteem will suddenly blossom like the tulips in your flippin' spring garden?!!!
Lol... It's one of those days.

I'm being transparent in case anyone else is feeling like this too.  

Here's a pic of the new way I did my makeup.  It's actually the perfect look for pictures!

It'll look quite dramatic up-close, but after a camera has flashed (from far away), it'll just end up bringing out your eyes, like in the picture below:

My nine-year-old asked if she could take pics of me for her photography portfolio; I'm shocked with how good she did. 
Do any of you ever have days when you're struggling with self-esteem?  How do you make yourself feel better?  

    Apparently I either do my makeup like a Kardashian, or do something nice for someone else--that always makes me feel better!

Remember God doesn't make mistakes; it's a good thing He made each one of us the way He intended--perfect according to His own design.

P.S. This makeup IS kind of fun for a change. If you wanna know how I did it, feel free to watch this video:


  1. You're so lovely, Good job Ruby!

  2. Did you fall into the wheel barrow because your heels are so high?


  3. Nice shot by your daughter! I spent lots of time with my wheelbarrow this weekend as well--brush hauling day though.

  4. Dear Elisa, with Ruby's excellent help you really did a fine job of demonstrating how to create a certain look. The "smokey" look. It's quite attractive on you, but for the last forty years I've been unwilling to spend ANY time on makeup! Peace.

  5. Elisa, looking good and i am glad to see you are still blogging. I am having a hard time getting back onto the horse but I figured it would take a while to get my pace back. By the way, I think you look beautiful with the new eye makeup. I tried it and looked like Jack Nickelson in Bat Man.
