As the rest of the internet can attest, there was a 6.0 earthquake at 3:20 in the morning, and its epicenter was in Napa, which wasn't too far from where my coworkers and I were in Santa Rosa, so we really felt it. My hotel bed was shaking like in The Exorcist.

I was already having trouble sleeping (I don't really sleep well in hotels, especially before races), and I was pretty much wide awake after the earthquake, managing to ALMOST doze off before my alarm finally went off at 4:50am.

I'm blonde now!


And here's my eye makeup look.

- UDPP
- NYX Eye Shadow Base in white
- ColourPop Dare all over the lid
- Sugarpill Hotsy Totsy in the crease
- UD Righteous on the browbone and blended into the crease
- Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner in black
- ELF Mascara Primer (dude, this is awesome and super cheap)
- L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Midnight Black mascara

Just as an FYI, everything except UD and Stila were under $15, and everything other than those and Sugarpill were under $10, so yes, you CAN do cool stuff with budget brands!
