FOTD: Dame Edna "Wisteria trio"

I was very inspired by Temptalia's "Look -Dame Edna Wisteria Trio Eye". So i decided to recreate it. I followed her look & directions mostly, but i substituted her base (Mutiny pigment) for mine (Bell bottom blue pigment), and used a white pencil in my waterline compared to her teal liner. I wanted a more cool toned, blue, look, instead of her warm teal one. I used a light hand, compared to her obvious intense pigmented look.

The following was used:

Too Face Shadow Insurance
MAC Bell Bottom Blue Pigment
MAC Fineshine eyeshadow

MAC Wisteria eyeshadow
MAC Divine Night eyeshadow

Loreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense Felt tip eyeliner
Beautique Eyeliner in Black
MAC ZoomBlack Zoom lash Mascara
MAC Frost Pigment

Bare Minerals Summer Bisque
Bare Minerals Mineral Veil

MAC Blush in
Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

MAC Marquise D' Lipstick

Benefit lipgloss in Magic

Reference: Look - Dame Edna Wisteria Trio Eye

EOTD - Sat. 1/17

Today was the birthday party for my boyfriend's brother and i wanted to sport a neutral look. I think it came out pretty okay given that I had only 5 minutes before the guest arrived.

List of what was used:
Philosophy's The Supernatural airbrush canvas (all over face)
Ofra Concealer Magic Roulette (blemishes)
Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil (all over face)
Physicians Formula Highlight 'n Blush in "2M" (cheeks)
Victoria's Secret Balmy Nights lip balm (lips)

Mac "Soft Ochre" paint pot
Kat Von D "Glock" e/s (all over lid to crease)
Mac "Sunnydaze" Pigment (crease & bottom lashline)
Mac "Shroom" e/s (high
light, inner tear duct & vertical line across eyelid)
Victoria's Secret Very Sexy High Definition Mascara in Blackest Black
Mac Pearlglide Eye Liner in "Wolf" (outer 1/3 of bottom lashline, smudged)
Loreal HIP "Meticulous" Cream Crayon (waterline)

When i get more comfortable with taking pictures (and my skin clears up more... fingers crossed) of myself I'll start doing a FOTD. And I will make them more vibrant, smoking, and colorful!

Till next time! :)

My new HG!!

My skin has been acting up lately. Since the late November. And real bad

I was reading lollipop26's blog and i was totally sympathizing her cause the same thing was happening to me. The same type of acne, too. But unlike her i wasn't using biotin. Mine was happening cause........... well i still can't figure it out. But anyways, i been trying EVERYTHING to get rid of it. I got Philosophy's On a clear day H2O2 and BE's Rare Minerals blemish therapy. I even tried that damn toothpaste thing and the aspirin mask. They either made it worst or did NOTHING at all. Until i stumbled upon a blog thing called "Ask Meta Filter" and they recommended Burt's Bees Blemish Stick. And i got it 3 days ago and its already making my face go back to NORMAL.

So if anyone is dealing with cystic acne, definitely give THIS a try. If this worked for me, and let me tell you i have very sensitive skin, and very acne prone skin, it WILL work for you. Well that just my opinion anyways.

Got IT!!

It came today, ladies & gents... Sephora by OPI's Metro Chic. And I love it already. As soon as it arrived i took off my existing polish and applied it! And its totally awesome. I actually went to 2 sephora's and they were both out of the color, so i had to get it online. The delay sucked, but i eventually got it. I also get to post those cute pics of your nails holding the nail polish bottle. :)

and p.s. sorry about the blurriness of the pics.
I am still trying to figure out how to take those shots...

up and running...

First post. Whew!! I have a haul coming, and some other makeup stuff.
I'm not that sure of what I'm going to be posting, but i do have my fingers crossed.

Till next time.
