EOTD Neutral & Cutting the Crease

Hello My Fellow Beauty-a-holics!

These pics are from October. I was out of town for some seminar/convention type things. I was tired and just about to take my makeup off. It still looked fresh (thank you UDPP) so I snapped a few shots :D

This whole EOTD was created using the Too Faced Naked Eye Palette.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Cat in the Christmas Tree
My fatty cat in the tree a few years ago...

I wish you all a wonderful holiday! I hope Santa brings everyone what they've asked for.

How is everyone else spending Christmas this year? What do you hope to get? What are you most excited to give?

I will have to work until the morning of Christmas. I am excited to spend the day with my family afterwards though. My grandparents house caught fire, so they have been staying with me. I am just so thankful to have them alive and well. That is a gift within itself. :)

I must confess... I know what all my presents are. I had to know because they are mostly makeup related. Poor Sweety... He didn't want to buy the wrong things.

I'm excited to give my step daughter her presents because she made a list and I adhered to it pretty strictly. I know she will be happy to open all her gifts. Plus, she really gets into the Christmas spirit. I gave her free rein to decorate the house however she liked. I have super festiveness all over now. :) She is a little gift to me as well. She makes sure I don't peek at the contents of my stocking too.

I would open all my gifts December 1st if it wasn't for her. She makes me walk the straight and narrow at Christmas time, lol....

Merry Christmas Everyone! I will talk to all of you soon! :)

FOTD with Wet-n-Wild

Hello My dears...

I have had a bit of craziness in my life as of late. I apologize for my absence. Anyways, I have several sets of pics put back to help me catch up on post. I did manage to get the nice camera out for today's FOTD.

Today was the first day in a week I've worn makeup. I bought the Wet-n-Wild palette Lust at Walgreens several weeks ago and today I finally got to try it. I love these smokey purples! :)

(I have been growing my eyebrows they are kinda everywhere... it is ok to be scared, lol...)

I used my NYX pencil in Milk in the inner corner first, and put the sparkly white color on top of it.

As always, I used UDPP over the entire lid as well.

On the lips, Blankety from MAC & OCC lip tar Complex...

Thank you everyone for looking! :)

Disclaimer: I bought the palette used in this post. Wet-n-Wild, nor Walgreens know who I am. :)

Aqua Blu & Thank You!

Hello Beauties! :)

I wanted to show everyone a quick EOTD using my original 88 Palette from Coastal Scents.

This is a smokey aqua blue look I wore the other day. I have been running around like crazy, so no pics from my fancy camera...just cell phone pics.... and that explains all my “quick” EOTD’s too. I need more hours in the day!

Also, Thank you! I have had so much wonderful response since coming back from my absence. I appreciate all the comments & compliments. I know we are all busy, and I really do appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. I browse a lot myself, but I’ve been trying to be active on other peoples blogs as well. If you don’t leave comments, that is just dandy too! Thank you for even looking! I really mean it! The beauty blog world has exploded here lately & If you’re taking to time to browse my page....well that just makes me happy. :) So TY TY TY TY TY...... ty... thank yooooooouuuuuuu!

Ok, enough with the mushiness, here are the pics...

Oh my Aqua Blu

ps. Thank you! :)

Rainbow Zebra Nails

I painted these the other day to match my rainbow eyes. I used all the China Glaze Poolside Collection polishes... Did I say that right? I hope so....

I used a fine detail brush for the stripes. This is also the same day I somehow didn't manage to get any photos except with my phone... But the photos turned out ok...So enjoy! :)

I see you!

Not really... Because that may be slightly creepy.... I strive to not be creepy, in any form. :P

The word creepy is a strange word.... Creepy creepy creepy...

Lol, Anyways, a quick sneak peek of me playing with my new Sugarpill palettes. I'm not to wild about the particular way I applied the shadows. I will probably redo this later. I do love the colors though! Bright, Vibrant, Pigmented! I definitely can't complain! :)

Lookin at ya!

Bewitched by Green

I've been wearing more and more greens lately. So here is another look using the BFTECosmetics Wizard of Oz-Some Collection. I literally have worn this collection all week! Just love it!

Anyways on with the pics... Description of products listed below.

Bewitched Swatches

Natural Light, No Flash
Bewitched 2

1.I used Urban Decay's 24/7 Liner, Covet all over my lid.
2. Pat Emerald City over Covet, all over the lid.
3.Blend EC up toward brow bone. Right above the lid, were there is no Covet liner, EC will be lighter.
4.I used Good Witch as my brow bone hilight
5.I lined around the top and bottom of my eye with Covet.
6.I patted My Pretty on top of the liner and slightly winged it out.

This was a fast, simple look! No cut crease this time. :)
Hope everyone enjoys!

My Pretty

This is My Pretty from BFTECosmetics. This color comes in the Wizard of OZ-Some collection.

This is a black based shadow with green iridescent flecks throughout it. I love it so.

I can't even begin to capture the complexity of this shadow! In certain light, it looks very green. With direct flash, the black is most visible & the green flecks sparkle.

A Different Perspective

My EOTD a few weeks ago. I was traveling to Tennessee to be the photographer for my best friend's wedding. This was an eight hour trip. Therefore, I took pics of random things while my Sweety was driving.

I just liked this one. Not sure as to why....Just did.... :)

A different view....

I used my Coastal Scents 88 Warm Palette & Hard Candy loose glitter on the lid. I used BFTECosmetics Mix & Fix to make the glitter stick.

So excited!

Sara from The Makeup Snob asked if she could feature me on her site.

Who?....Me? Well, who could say no to something so cool!

In her series called Community Spotlight, Sara highlights various bloggers and Youtube channels that she finds inspirational.

This is why I'm so excited! Thank You Sara. :)

Very Dramtic....

I did this awhile back for a makeup contest. I just now realize that I never posted it here...

Crazy looooong lashes :)

My 2nd entry for BFTE

Merle Norman Fall Colors

I have a friend that works for Merle Norman. It is always to good to be in the know with makeup retailers. :) She told me Merle Norman's new fall colors were out. Of course I had to go take a look!

This is a look I did using Gold Digger eyeshadow on the lid & Charcoal Green in crease. Do my eyes look different? I applied them on my good friend Meggie :)

My friend and model :)

Candy Corn-ish Halloweenie

I don’t guess this is a typical Halloween look... but I don’t suppose I shoot for typical on a regular basis. :) The look is very fall & very orange. I love both of those things....and I really love candy corn.... Now I have to go find candy corn...sigh....

Anyways, I was inspired by Halloween and Candy Corn. Lately, a few people, have been posting the white, yellow, & orange looks & I wanted to put a little twist on mine.

On with the pics!

Memory loss...

That isn't the name of this FOTD.... That is why there is no name. When I put on makeup, and take pics of the makeup, I must also make note of the makeup. A person should keep notes of products so they can be easily shared with readers. The notes should not be lost and/or accidentally thrown away.... sigh...

I finally decided to go ahead and add this here. I took the time to edit & upload them so.....I hope you're accepting of me with my imperfections & eyeshadow unknowns and nameless FOTD's.... please? maybe?:)

I want to say I used some MUFE & a Coastal Scents palette... Maybe some BFTE too? I won't swear to anything though... :)
