Cotton Candy

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are doing well :-)

For this week's makeup look I wanted to play with some pastel colors I received from My Beauty Addiction.  I enjoy playing with their shadows as I have always found them to be well pigmented and easy to use.  My inspiration came from the light, airy, fat-free carnival goodness that is COTTON CANDY!

This was just a fun "color wash" idea that is easy, fresh, and whimsical.:-)

I hope you like it!

♥ Red Cherry Lashes in 138's

 Oh yeah!!  I am wearing a giant pair of circle lenses that I got from! I don't recall which ones I'm wearing (sorry!) but they have a great variety to choose from :-)  I've always had great experiences with Lens Village, and the lenses are super comfy.

Thank you so much for stopping by!! It truly means the world to me :-)

I hope you have a great week!

MUA Glamour Nights Palette

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are doing well!

For this week's makeup look I wanted to use the MUA Glamour Nights Palette and play with that RED!  Bright red shadow is completely out of my norm, so this was an exercise in stepping out of my comfort zone and creating something bold and colorful. 
I really love the end result, hope you do too!


♥ Urban Decay Primer Potion
♥ Shade 1 (vanilla) applied to entire lid
♥ Shade 2  (red) applied to crease
♥ Shade 3 (soft taupe) used to diffuse the red up and out towards brow bone
♥ Shade 4 (bronze taupe) to over V, crease, and outer lower lash line
♥ Shade 5 (purple) to inner and middle lower lash line
♥ Nyx Jumbo pencil in Milk to water line.  Set with a white shadow
♥ Black eyeliner, mascara
♥ Red Cherry Lashes 76's


♥ Ulta powder blush in Afterglow


♥ Nyx Lipstick in Muse
♥ NYC Lip Gloss in Sun Gold Pink

I love how flirty and glam it turned out!  Definitely colors I wouldn't think of playing with, but I'm glad I did :-)

Hope you have a wonderful week!! Thank you so much for stopping by.  Always love it when you do!

Celebrity Makeup- Christina Hendricks

So.... I was supposed to be cleaning my house.  But I got distracted.

I had an absolute crap week. 
And I couldn't stop listening to this amazing song. (I'm sorry about the ear buds... I don't usually like it when they make an appearance in my photos- but in this case, I will allow the exception!)

I then made myself a cocktail that quickly replaced my misery with joy, and BOOM! 
(I know!! My head exploded too!!!!)

Ok, look.  Who are we kidding?  It's CLOSE. Pretty close. And my cleavage is not as mighty as hers- but this is a makeup blog!  So let's get back to the face, shall we?

I did a very bare face makeup look for this (just concealer and powder), very light brows, and some sweet kitten eyes.
Hope you like it!

The Tools:

♥ Nyx Eyeshadow in Burgundy Pearl to crease blended out
♥ Black liquid eyeliner of your choice, I used this Marbella felt tip pen to create a cat eye
♥ Black Mascara
♥ Ardell Demi Lashes in 101's
 ♥ Any rosy blusher will work :-)
♥ MUA Sheer Lip Gloss in Can't Stop

I really will do anything to get out of cleaning my house.

Cheers, everyone!  I hope you have a great week! :-)  Thanks again for stopping by! I truly appreciate it :-)

Team Spirit

Hello Everyone!
I hope you are having a great day!

For this week's makeup look, I wanted to do something easy and colorful. It's been so dark and cold lately, I needed a dose of cheery color!  This look is really simple and lovely regardless of your skill level.  Just a fun pop of color!

I was inspired by the palette that I selected, "Team Spirit" by Nyx Cosmetics. (I'm not really big into sports, (Sorry, WyoSparkles!!!) so I had no team in particular in mind... unless it's "Team Sarcasm" which I've been a big cheerleader for lately, or how about "Team Fabulous"? Now WE ALL belong to that team! 

Hope you like the colors!


♥ UDPP to prime lids
♥ Ulta Shadow in Naked to brow bone/ highlight
♥ Team Spirit palette by Nyx Cosmetics:  Lilac to crease, outer V, and lower lashline, Gold to lid and inner corner, and Pink to blend everything up and out towards the brow
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk to waterline
♥ Black eyeliner and Mascara
♥ Red Cherry Lashes in WSP


♥ Nyx Cosmetics Powder Blush in Dusty Rose


♥  Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Dare Devil

I love a bright dose of color in the winter :-)

Hope you are having a great day!! Thank you so much for stopping by!! I truly appreciate your kindness, friendship, and support. :-)

Have a great week!
