Mac's description: A very baby peach (Sheertone Shimmer)
This color stood out from all of the other blushes and since my skintone is more
tan than fair, the MUA said that Springsheen would be more of a highlighter to me.
I really like this color when I swatched it because I knew that it would be the perfect
to go look. I LOVE blush because it brings life into my face. I really can't go
without blush because something starts to look wrong if i'm not wearing it. Anyways,
it is a peachy pink with gold shimmer in it that make my face glow! I love it!
I really hate layering my mascara but it makes them noticable.
I'm actually wearing Victoria's Secret Pink's tinted lip balm in

I love the shoes. I've had the top for a few years now, I believe I bought it
from Charlotte Russe, then the necklace from Rue 21 which is mostly found
in outlet centers. I sorta like the place, but not too crazy about it. I've got so
many sunglasses I don't know where I bought the ones I'm wearing in the pic from.
so I learned a very very easy way to backcomb it and it doesn't take long.
The hubsters has been helping me with telling me not to cut my hair either!
I think i'm finally getting past that nasty hair length that grows after you get a bob
So today the hubby and I went jogging and I was so out of breath. Seriously! It wasn't funny, but I was never a good runner to begin with. It was nice to know that he was sweating too LOL. *whew* It felt good but i'm tired as hell now!
Anyways I want to try to make it to the Mac counter this weekend so hopefully all goes well. I'm just looking for the blush that will make me glow without layering on tons of different colors.
That's it for now. I'll post up swatches eventually. *tired*

helps make the shadow stick. I should go buy a branded primer but this is good for now.
My husband says I remind him of a Disney Princess in the picture lol. I said, "snow white!"
I pretty much used my famous sandwich ingredients but stuffed them inside
asiago bread we bought from wal-mart's deli/bakery. My hubby says, "mm! good!'
and do some reading.

outer lid: nyx darkest shade in Aquamarine trio
this thing is sorta being retarded or i am. either way enjoy!
foundation: revlon colorstay warm golden
powder: physician's formula talc-free formula creamy natural
blush: milani luminous, everyday minerals weekend getaway
mac carbon, shore leave, mulch
wet n' wild sand castle palette
i like to press my pigments if i do get any. i hate it when it flies everywhere on my face.
wet n' wild mega liner
i used to use smodge pots or pot liners but then it's just too much time for me. liquid liners show up best on my eyes and pencils aren't as stron as a black as i would like them to be.
i really don't have a favorite one, but if i had to write one down it'd be maybelline's last stylist for my thin asian lashes!
nyx! they're lip products are so wonderful! i love "love angel" in nyx lips and "french kiss" in their shine gloss.
i'm also loving E.L.F.'s luscious liquid lipstick in baby lips!

Yes, I found ELF at my K-mart today. I really have never seen it there but a quick glare and bam! There it was. $1 each piece, could I not go wrong? I quickly told my husband to grab me a basket and told him that each one costs $1 only! Then he told me to get one of each but I refused because I wasn't sure if I wanted it or not. However, I did grab 2 custom eyes palettes which are great for other eyeshadows like mac or milani. Then I decided to try one of their eyeshadows called "sage" and I definitely did not go wrong. It's so beautiful and it's very very pigmented. The texture is really smooth too, you don't need a lot to get the look. The lipstick wand is cool too!
The Milani blush... i found 2 of the smooth finish luminous blush lying around and so I quickly grabbed those too! I was like wow, what is going on? it's God's gift to me seriously! I also grabbed a mineral one just cause I love the color so much! The second one is not pictured because it's in my to go makeup bag. The lady at the cash register could not ring up the smooth finish blushes because they were already discontinued, so she went to go check it out and couldn't find any pricing, so she was like ,"eh, a dollar". I was like wow, i'm fine with that! So I got both of them for a dollar each. She also gave us an employee discount for being military. (i love it!) So far, things are going good.
This here is where it all happens. I really need a desk or drawer to get ready at, the hubby says that he wants to get a set of furniture that matches everything, and if I could wait that'd be great. So this is what I have for now. The other makeup cabins aren't shown LOL. just kidding, i'm not that horrible...yet. I just love makeup. It's like magic to me!

Anyways, I did this look using Revlon's Colorstay Quad in "Sultry Smoke". I really do like the quad, it's not hard to deal with and the eyeshadow doesn't fly everywhere on my face giving me racoon eyes. I applied the darkest color wet, that way it'd be more dramatic.
I'll eventually start posting up the rest of my makeup. I'm a drugstore makeup junkie but i'm slowly converting over to high end labels. I once bought this eyeshadow palette from POP beauty and I never touched it. It's still sitting inside my makeup drawer. BORING!
This is it for now, i'll post up some more stuff tomorrow. love ya!
