It has been awhile since I have worn a bright really REALLY bright. I felt that I should remedy that :)

Bewitched by Green

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... :)

Miss me? :)

New and Blue

Here I am, once again apologizing for a long absence. I hate to have such a long stretch between post. :( I started having abdomen pain a few months ago. This annoyance quite quickly resulted in me having my gallbladder removed. I had a bit of a rough patch after surgery but, I am very well now & glad to be through with that ordeal.

My second reason for the leaving-with-no-goodbye span of non-posting is, I had someone else in my immediate family become very, very sick. I had to turn all of my attention toward them. That is part of life & family. We have to stay close when times are tough. Things seemed to have leveled out for now & I am hoping all will stay well for a long while.

I could have updated here and there with random pictures and looks. I am so funny about what pics I post though. I try to catch the makeup in the best light. I really want the colors to look the way they do in actuality. Lighting can make an eyeshadow totally different from what it actually is. That is why swatches are so great!

Rather than stress about this, should I forgo the nit picking of the photographs & just show the makeup? Sometimes I can shoot a quick webcam pic before I'm out the door. I may not get a chance to take pics with my good camera. I just want to keep things interesting for the followers.

I know blogs do better with daily post. I will post as often as possible from here on out. I will publish anything that maybe of interest & see how it goes for a little while. :)

Thanks Lovelies :)
