Hey guys!

So i just purchased the Urban Decay book of shadows vol III!!! It's an awesome little collection and I recommend it. I have a few urban decay palettes, and I honestly don't have a lot of the colors that come with Vol III. I have a couple but not many of them. They're so pigmented and pretty! I will do a full review of the BOS later on. I got so excited when I brought it home that I took off my makeup I had on, and did a quick look and I wanted to share!

Just letting you know, the pictures don't even give the color quality justice...sometimes I hate my camera... but I used my favorite color from this palette (Money)... it's such a pretty silvery green... I love it. Hope you like my look!

 PS: excuse my nasty eyebrows!! lol. I need to make an appointment to get them threaded.. the photos just make that abundantly clear!!

Palace Pedigreed

Hey ladies,

So I used to wear crazy ass colors on a daily basis to work and what not, then I got a promotion and I seem to be wearing much more subtle colors... I need to do more of my intense looks though cause I don't want my blog to get b-o-r-i-n-g with the same looks over and over. So if you feel bored with my looks, feel free to let me know. Also if you want me to attempt any particular look just lemme know. Alrighty so now onto this look...

I have been shopping and buying makeup like a crazy woman! And I recently got a small haul from M.A.C.... yay! One of the products I got was the palace pedigreed palette (which by the way is fantabulous!) I love the colors, they're so feminine and just purtaaaay. Here are some photos of what I came up with. Let me know what you think! As always thanks for checkin out my blog and for following!!! :)

***Super side note... definitely liked my hair in these above photos! I got it cut and now it's shorter... but whatever... it'll grow... I just felt like randomly throwing that comment in there... okay onto more photos!

Thanks for looking!!!! :-)

Pretty In Pink

Hey Ladies,

This is a look that created back in January and I love love love it! It's very dramatic, but I wear dramatic colors everyday ;).... you can tone it down if necessary to make it to your liking. I am going to be making my next video tutorial on this look. I hope you like it... if you are interested to know the colors used or anything like that, leave a comment and I'll answer all questions. As always thanks for looking!!!

Here is the tutorial as promised on how to create this look. (note, the video I did today isn't quite as pink as the pictures...BUT, you use these three colors I show you in the video. Depending on how pink you want it, you just add more white to the inner corner and blend into the red and so on, the colors will turn more pink/purple the more you blend. I did the look very quickly in this video. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave comments. Thanks for looking and I hope you like my tutorial! :)

Shadowy Lady

Today I decided to use my m.a.c shadowy lady palette. I like the colors. They're very pretty. Hopefully you like the look... I created a look that you can wear in the daytime but you can also use this palette to create more dramatic ones and what not. Very versatile which I like :) Below are the photos...

As you can see by the photo of the palette, the colors are prettttttty! For this look I used the top left color all over my lid and blended upwards. Top right color blended in the crease and blended softy above the crease. Bottom right color blended only in the outer v. I lined my upper and lower lashes with a black eyeliner and then went over it with a pencil brush dipped into the bottom left corner to soften the harsh line and add that pretty blue to the look.

Hope you guys like it and as always, thanks for looking!

If you are interested in what colors I used, just leave a comment and I'll post them. :) Thanks for looking!

Olive Green Delight :)

I used my coastal scents 88 warm palette today and came up with this olive green smokey eye. I love the contrast of colors. I think the look came out really well. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera on the best settings, so I didn't capture the video in 720HD youtube quality....rats!!! But hopefully you can still see the details pretty well. I tried to take some decent photos with my digital camera, but I feel like they didn't come out all that well either... Sounds to me like I need new equipment!!! :) Anyone have any tips on good digital cameras to catch the makeup detail really well?

Ok well I hope you enjoy my video and as always thanks for watching!!!

My Go To Look

So I did a tutorial on my quick look I do pretty much on a daily basis. It's really quick once you get the hang of it and will probably take under 15 minutes. I was really bummed after I spent an HOUR prepping the video for upload and what not and then once I fully had it uploaded to youtube, I find out it got rejected cause the length was too long arrggghh! So I had to edit it and cut things out to try to get it within the 10 minute time frame. Which explains why the video fades in and out a LOT and also is a little choppy at parts. I'm sorry!!!! I had to shrink it to get it to upload.

Anyway I hope this video helps and as always, thanks for watching!!! :)

Ben Nye Look

Hey guys,

It has been sooooo long since I've posted anything or updated my blog!!! AAAAAH. Well I am back and ready to keep posting different looks. Recently I got two makeup gigs!!! I did the bridal party for both weddings. I need to get the photos gathered and up here so you can see how they turned out :)

Right now I am posting a look I created last night using my Ben Nye Luminere palette. I love these colors and don't use this palette enough. I was very tired and kind of out of it so I didn't talk through the video. I just did the techniques and what not and showed you what I used. Hope you enjoy the video. Leave comments if you have any questions or would like to request any looks!

As always, thanks for watching!!!!
