Look: Purples & Greens

Sorry for the long pauses between posts. I have to get back into the habit. I gotta find my camera so I can take pictures of new looks too :-) I think purple and green go well together.

I did a great look today using the new Style Black shadows. I’ll have to do it again after I find my camera and post it. Really smokey eyes :-) My favorite MUA, Denise, made a killing off of me yesterday! I love her :-) I didn’t get the grease paint stick though, and I’m kinda regretting it. Any thoughts? Do you think it’s a must have?

Look: Pigments Barely Used (great for fall)

This is a great fall look – a type of burnt orangish color, and I love the way it looks. It’s pretty bold. Fall is coming…it’s in the air…can you feel it…? (I can’t yet…it’s too hot lol!)

Look: Fashion Forward Navy…I’m back!

I don’t officially know if I have that many followers. I know of the few who are sweeties and leave comments, and those totally brighten my day :-)  I’ve definitely been neglecting my blog and my makeup lately. I feel bad for doing so, but I just haven’t had the motivation to put in the time or energy to post, and I’m not sure why. Though, I have been so busy…it’s almost depressing. Not that I’m complaining or anything. My day job is seriously a 12+ hour day, and I used to bring the excess work home, no worries. But I also started my Masters in Educational Administration plus a credential that’s all going to be completed in one year. So I have class after work, two days per week until 10pm and copious amounts of reading and homework. Now juggling work and school is stressfull, but doable. Lots of people do it!

BUT, the greatest news is that my husband and I just bought our first house (ok, it’s a condo)!! 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 1800 sq. ft. piece of realestate in southern California, and it’s all ours! :-) We’re extatic and love our new place, but moving is sooooooo hard and time consuming! Geez! So I’ve been so tired lately…oy. Anyway, I’m hoping to get back to my blog and hopefully start even doing some new tutorials. One of the spare bedrooms is my “office” where I’m converting my old desk into a makeup vanity :-) So exciting!!! In a few weeks, you’ll be seeing different backgrounds in my pictures! Anyway, if you’re still around, thanks for sticking with me…it means a lot!

Now on to the look…this one is back from mid August. It’s so easy, it’s almost laughable. But I usually bring the color up a lot higher than my crease because my eyes are naturally so hooded. For this look, I kept the color really tight around just my eyelid and around the lashline. It feels very fashion forward, and I know I’ve seen it in magazines before. I liked it a lot and enjoyed that it was different…refreshing :-)
