Let me tell you a story...

of a girl with black brows...

who couldn't find a shadow that wasn't black, or a pencil that wasn't harsh...

who had no trace of brown in her hair, so even the darkest browns just didn't work...

one day, after ordering Carbon and looking like Cruella DeVille...

she found it... her perfect shade...


omg, soooooo happy!

Why for you no posting?

Lol [sorry, i'm hopped up on iced coffee]

The reason for no recent posts? 2 words.

Spring break.

My daughter is home all this week, so check for postings in the beginning of next week. I got my packages in the mail from NYX, Sephora, and jewelry from Charlotte Russe. I'll review some of those, and I definately need to post a look soon. Books with no pictures are boring ;]

So my lovelies, don't give up on me just yet. I'm in 100% mommy mode.

No series!

I've decided that I'm not going to finish my Music Video series...

I feel like when I know I have to do something, it makes me not want to do it. Also, I'm kind of tired of having to copy something unless I'm in love with it.

SO, what does this mean?
This means that I am going to post looks, and reviews and helpful beauty 101 tips when I feel inspired. I've really wanted to use some super fine green glitter I have, so that's probably what you will see next.

I just really need to play, not duplicate!

Beauty Tips 101

I went to the mall yesterday to pick up Victoria Secret's lip scrub/balm pro product. And it was sold out. I was super bummed. However, when I got home, I thought 'how hard can this be to make at home for cheap'???

I read through some of my makeup books, and stumbled across a scrub I used when I was in highschool. We won't talk about that, because it makes me feel OLD. Anyway, if you're interested in what I'm talking about, read on :]

This is what you need:

lemon juice (optional)

just mix the vaseline (if you don't have vaseline just layer on a TON of chapstick and add the sugar straight to your lips) and the sugar to an almost paste like consistancy. This is where you would add the optional lemon juice (all it really does is kind of act as a bleaching agent, and makes it tingly.)

once it's mixed, warm up your lips with a damp, hot washcloth. This just kind of loosens all the dead skin.
next, apply the solution to your lips and rub in a circular motion for about, 2 minutes.
remove the product with a damp papertowel or wash cloth, and add lip balm.

ta dah! exfoliated, soft lips. if you have a little container, and have some left over, it stays good in the fridge for about a week. i haven't tried longer, so i'm not going to say anything i haven't already done.

i hope this was helpful. exfoliating is great for me because i HATE the feeling of having something on my lips so I like to just use a stain. a stain on dead skin lips = HORRIBLE!

A random act of madness...

DISCLAIMER: This is not part of my music video mini-series, LOL

This is me. This is me being bored. This is how much I love playing with my makeup.

This is me being silly :] Don't hate ;]

New Mini-series...

Over the next few days I am going to be starting [and hopefully completing] my next mini-series. I love doing these, I like that I have a theme to work with :]

So, it's going to be music video makeup. There is going to be 4 installments of looks, just like my super hero one. So far, I have 3 looks that I am going to do... [in no particular order]
1. Katy Perry - "ET"
2. Rihanna - "S&M"
3. Jessie J - "I Can Do It Like A Dude"
4. ___________ ?

I'm doing my youtube research and still have yet to find #4. I was going to do J-Lo from her "On The Floor" video, but pixiwoo beat me to it! Anyone have any ideas? I'd love to do one that someone suggests that I may be overlooking.

Fallen Angel

I finally got to use my fantastic feather lashes today. I thought I would do a fallen angel look. The feathers (or wings) are black, and the eye makeup is generally dark since I have "fallen" from above. However, I am still an angel, so I had to glow :)

Here is a shot of the products I used. Ask if you want to know what/how I did something :)

 I got this in the mail today, so I had to use it. The colors are really beautiful, rich, and very pigmented. This is the YSL Sparkling Quartz/Amethyst duo. I was very afraid of the lighter color, I thought it was going to be very pink, but it is actually a gorgeous irridescent white color with lots of shimmer. I used it as an all over highlight, and really got that angelic glow. I love this duo.

YSL Shimmering Quartz/Amethyst Duo

SO, yeah. I hope you like this look. I really loved doing it. I'm going to start trying to take a picture after each step, but when I do my makeup, it comes so organically by the time I realize I need to take a picture, I'm ten steps in. I'm working on it :)

My friend went to NY on business last week and she brought me back a present! She said, "I saw these and INSTANTLY thought of you."

Do my friends know me or what?! I absolutely love them. And if you can't tell from the picture, they are feathersssss!! When I saw them I was instantly inspired to do a fallen angel look. Now, with them against my leopard print, I could do something animal, too :] Be prepared for 2 looks...

I know I haven't done any makeup in a while, but I've been sick with med changes. All lightheaded isn't the most desirable condition to do eye makeup. So, don't stop checking out my blog, there will be looks!

[and just off topic, does anyone know of a good quality, REASONABLY PRICED, camera to record looks with? i'm not going to be a youtube channel, so i don't need the good stuff. just something to record :)]
