No Mirror Makeup Challenge

Hi ~

Last week, my friend Vyvien and I decided to attempt the "no mirror makeup challenge" after we finished our exams. She's in California for school at the moment so this was over the internet type of thing :P

This is how mine turned out...

Not bad at all! The purple in the heatherette palette didn't turn out as vibrant as I'd wanted it too, but I'm at my boyfriend's apartment and most of my makeup collection is at home so I had to improvise!

I also couldn't find any lipsticks so I just blended out some lipliner and made it work ;)

One thing that did piss me off; my stupid Palladio liquid liner pen broke on it! The tip fell out and got all over my arms/legs/thumb. I fixed it but that really made me made but I guess it couldn't have been a better time lol.

Photo below on the foreign marks. I thought there would've been more but I guess the odds were in my favor.

& lastly, the products I used. Sorry for such a dim picture, the apartment doesn't get good lighting which definitely works when I'm trying to sleep in ^_^

I think everyone should give this a try! It was really fun and interesting to see :)

Until next time.

FOTD: Simple & Bright

Hi again~!

If you didn't tuned in before this post, I was debating whether to post items to my blog sale and I actually went ahead and made it live so go ahead and click the link above this post if you're interested. Beware though, looking at all my stuff might make your head explode on the amount of money I've spent over the years!

Anyway, so I was putting on my makeup like normal today; neutral eye. I keep any dark shadows low so it'll be daytime appropriate. I really have no where to go today so I was like let's make this a little more interesting...

This is what I ended up with!

The added color definitely added life to my face!
(I normally don't really wear a lippie, just add some kind of lip balm)
For some reason my blush is always washed out in photos... no matter how clown like I look in person.

Here's the products I used:

- NARS Pro Prime Oil-free Pore Refining Primer
- Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW Liquid Foundation
- NARS Deep Throat Blush
- Make Up For Ever HD Powder
- NARS Smudgeproof Primer
- Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
(used Foxy, Booty Call, Chopper, Snakebite, Busted, and Blackout)
- Urban Decay Zero 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
- Maybelline Megaplush Mascara
- Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil
(used Perversion, and Ransom)
- Anastasia Medium Ash Brow Powder Duo

- NYX Pinky Lipliner Pencil

 I'm going to try to start blogging more seeing how school is getting really intense!
There won't be many hauls -- if any they'll most likely be drugstore.
I'm actually going to try to start using my makeup that I decided to keep
and since halloween is right around the corner I could possibly do some
inspired/creative looks! I definitely have the products... just need the inspiration.

I already have a few ideas of easy posts so look out for that soon ;)

See y'all in the next post!

Feedback, please!

Hello all...

It's been a while since I've regularly posted, and I've been thinking of starting back up again.

Playing with makeup definitely helps relieves stress, and I've got tons of it now that I've started my last year of college. (or what I hope will be my last year assuming things go as planned)

I'm torn between whether I want to blog sale my unused stuff away.. THERE'S A LOT.

Or whether I want to keep it, but even then I'd still have makeup to last me years.

With it being my last year, I have completely stopped working for this fall semester because the amount of time I have left of school really depends on how good I do this semester so I thought it'd be a good idea.

Now with that being said, I've already burned through half of my student loan (which I didn't get much of) and now I'm going to be needing money which is why I want to get rid of the stuff I don't use.

I actually took photos of everything I'd like to get rid of, yet I still want to keep it, but then it'll sit here and not get used :(

Everything is ready to go live for a blog sale... but the prices are not the same as I had in the past because I don't want to part with it.

Should I post, or not?!

Please give me some feedback :)
