Blue/brown LOTD

Hi beauties!  I have been so boring with my makeup lately.....probably because most mornings I don't have time for anything elaborate lol.  I did this look a couple of days ago, so I thought I would share.  It's not a favorite of mine, so I'm not sure that I'll be rocking this again but I did think it turned out pretty.

Please ignore the black spot of eyeshadow by my lip hahaha...I didn't realize it was there lol but this was the only pic that I got that captured the lid good.

Here's what I used:


MAC painterly pp
Inglot eyeshadows:
407P inner corner (peach/orange)
413P middle lid (pearly blue/green-similar to MAC Tilt)
372M outer lid (matte robin's egg blue)
360M above crease (matte cool light brown)
361M above that lol (matte coral)
329M darken crease (matte dark brown)
352M blending (matte skintone)
395P highlight
Physician's Formula lash booster liquid liner
MAC Feline eyeliner on waterline
Maybelline Lash Stiletto Voluptous Mascara


L'Oreal Visible Lift in 151
MAC Careblend powder in Medium
MAC Harmony-contour
MAC Sunbasque-blush
Inglot 395P-highlight
Chanel Glossimer lipgloss in 141

Sorry that I didn't get great pics....I was low on time and just snapped a few.  Here are my favorite ones though..... and my kiddo.  She is so grown up these days!  She is going to be 12 in December and the child is about a half an inch shorter than me (I'm 5'4").  She is going to be way taller than me lol.  I can't believe she is in 6th grade....time goes so fast.  :(  I wish I could rewind and go back to the day I had her and live it all again!!  =D

Well, I hope that everyone has a great day!!

Reverse Smokey

Happy Labor Day!  I hope that everyone has enjoyed their weekend!!  I'm back to the grind  lol.  Yesterday I saw a look that Marlena did called the reverse smokey eye...and I decided to give it a try.  I did add a bit more shadow than she used on the lid because it just felt too bare for me lol.  I think if I would've added some falsies, it would have really looked awesome....but I was going for a quick look and I just am not good at getting false eyelashes on myself very easily lol.'s the look!

I pretty much wear this same look a lot during the week, the only real difference is that I'm not wearing my black eyeliner on my upper lid winged out like I always do lol. 

So....I have to say that I tried a new foundation.  I have been using MUFE Mat Velvet or HD...and I'm out of the HD and low on the Mat I'm on the hunt for that perfect foundation!  Haha.  Okay, so I was at Ulta and decided to try out a cheaper foundation (afterall, I am a student!!  hehe).  I picked out L'Oreal Visible Lift in shade 151 and I have to say that I am quite pleased!!  This honestly is just as good as MUFE HD!  It has a pump, blends super easy, is buildable, has great coverage, doesn't feel heavy or have a strong smell and it brightens my skin and seems to make my pores and skin look better!  I think I love this stuff!  Okay, so I have only used it twice we will see but so far it's awesomesauce!

I also wanted to ask you guys.....what is your favorite mascara right now?  I feel like I've tried it all and I'm really not loving anything....well, I do love one mascara....Diorshow Blackout, but it just isn't worth the money to me because it starts to thicken within two weeks of opening it and that is quite frustrating considering the price!  So please give me some ideas!  :)

I hope you all have a fabulous week!!!  <3

Hiiieee!  I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend, I know I am!  Two days off in a row...I feel like I'm on vacay!  lol.  I've been in front of my computer for hours, reading blogs and makeup sites and ohhhh I've loved it all!  I've been quite boring with my makeup lately....and now I have some inspiration again!!  =D  I thought I would post a few makeup looks that I didn't get around to posting....

I didn't really get a good picture of the last look....which bums me out because it looked good in person!!  I also didn't get to take a pic until the end of the day on that one.  But, I thought I would share anyway!  ;)

And had to add a couple of silly pics lol.  I better go try and get something productive done now....hehe...  Have a great holiday weekend!!!
