January Rising

 A few days ago some fellow make-up fiends brought this to my attention:

January Rising is one of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics' (OCC) newest lip tars. It's also the name for a fundraising campaign to fund January Hunt's transgender surgery and raise awareness for the matter. January works for OCC, that's how the colaboration came to a means. I really hope January makes the goal of raising $30.000, but above all I hope that a lot of eyes will be opened and that people will have a more open mind towards people around them that like her choose to make a transition or gender-related outing of any kind.

You can choose to donate an amount, or you can support by purchasing the lip tar for $25 (shipping included). I have been meaning to try the OCC lip tars for a while and the color is awesome, so I went ahead and ordered it. Lip tars are cruelty free and 100% vegan by the way :)

Go to the fundraiser!

Matte and easy

This look is really easy and takes little time, so I thought I'd share it in case anyone else is feeling as uninspired as I usually do early in the morning!

I've mostly used mattes and neutral colors, but topped it off with a glowy finishing powder and a natural dark nude gloss. All products are either drugstore buys or mineral make-up bought online, and everything is very budget-friendly.
