Emptying my camera...

Hello ladies and gents!

Every so often I find myself in the house bored with nowhere to go, so....I pull out my makeup! When I'm working I almost always end up doing a very clean look so I rarely get to experiment with more bold fun looks. (big bummer) So, when I'm at home playing in my kit, I usually try to do a look that I either haven't done, or try a technique I want to improve upon and I usually end up snapping a few photos. (well...maybe more than a few)

I LOVE green on my eyes, so naturally this is my fav. :-)

OMG!! "The Attack of the Shine" Part XXIV...lol

This is not one of my favorites...oh well...practice makes a disciplined scholar. :-)
Stay Beautiful!

So, I've been slacking on my blogging! But! I went out last Saturday so...New makeup look! HeHe ;-)

Hello all!

I went out last Saturday for one my BFF Brittany's B-Day Celebration. (Happy Birthday Britt!)
Below are the photos of the makeup look chose to wear. A list of what I used is below the photos, as well as a (somewhat confusing) explanation.

FYI. The first 4 pics were from me practicing the look earlier in the day, so the end result was slightly different. The last two photos are from the final look.

Here's what I used.

Prep: Herbalife Herbal Aloe Everyday Soothing Spray. (YES Herbalife! LOL...I got this as a gift.) **LOVE** it!
Prime: Dermalogica Barrier Repair.
Concealer: M.A.C Select Moisturecover in NW45
Foundation: Bare Minerals in Deepest Deep
Blush: Iman Luxury Blushing Powder in Sable. Love this. I use it to warm my face before applying blush or in lieu of color blush. I think it imparts a natural glow. :-)I need to buy a few more before they disappear or become hard to find!
Nars Exibit A for a bit of color. This is a VERY intense red so apply carefully!
Nars Taos on top of that, applied lightly for a nice glow.
Base: M.A.C Select Moisturecover in NW45
Crease: Burgundy eyeliner to define crease, and blend M.A.C Deep Damson shadow into crease.
Lid only: Indian wood Paint pot, then M.A.C Amber Lights. I used a bit of Make Up For Ever Star powder in Copper on top.
Eyeliner: Upper lash, M.A.C Fluidline in Blacktrack. Lower, random sharp black eyeliner.
Brows: I filled in my brows using M.A.C Carbon and Handwritten (drk brwn) and then cleaned them up underneath with my concealer and an angle brush.
Lipbalm: Nivea A Kiss Of Moisture, Esential lip care.
Lipliner: Sorme Perse Eyeliner in Brown 3. This is the perfect brown (no red tone) and I prefer it as a lipliner. Blackberry lipliner. I blend a bit with my Brown Lipliner.
Lipstick: True Cosmetics Soft Lip color in Sophisticate (brownish, greyish, pinkish nude). Revlon Lipgloss: Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Raisin Glaze.
Stay Beautiful!
