11.22.08 - Engagement Photos

We finally had them done, even though we've been engaged for over a year, LOL. We had orginaly planned to have family photos for Brad's side, but a few certain family members were acting childish (a 30 y.o. and his 24 y.o. wife) so we just had engagement photos done. I was happy to find out our setting fee was including with our wedding photos, so we didn't owe a dime today, yippie!!!

These photos were taken 6 hours after I did my make-up, because immediately after our e-pics we ate dinner with our mom's, visited my parents for a while & then visited Brad's parents.

I'm gonna try to remember what make-up I put on...

Make Up For Ever 5 Camouflage Cream Palette - No. 1

11.21.08 - Fine...

Sans makeup, with glasses...

(My hair fell at that part, but the bangs were cut to be over further, that's why they look a lil funny... I didn't fell like messing with them. I'm going to bed, lol.)

11.12.08 - New Hair

After 15 weeks without new highlights, my roots were BAD!!! So, I got my hair highlighted and cut today. I went a tad darker, and, and, and... I now have BANGS! I haven't had BANGS for years!!!

So this was my inspiration:
Photobucket

Now, I don't have any pics. I told her to not curl it since I was just going home and going to bed, so she just dried it and it looked kinda funny. I'll play with it Friday and take pics. :o)

My hair isn't that long (plus she has extensions) and my bangs are a bit shorter... shorter than I would have liked, but oh well, they'll grow back. :o) They aren't too bad, probably a bit past the tip of my nose, so, ya. I just have to learn how to style them. :o

FYI, I got my 1st Sephora order today... I will hopefully get the 2nd tomorrow then I can take some pics to post and do a Haul video, yippie!

11.11.08 - I'm hiding...

Yep, I'm hiding for a while because I have vowed to not wear face make-up until Saturday. Why, you ask? Well, for one, this week I'm going to 4 10 hour days, which means 2 less hours in the day for me to sleep, watch tv, relax and get ready for bed & work. LOL. Also, my poor face... I picked a bad time to try a new foundation, a MAC one, none the less, so I don't know if my blemishes are from the foundation or 'that time of the season'. Yes, season, 4 times a year, it's great. :o) It is most likely a combo of both. They aren't that bad, mostly because I catch them and pick them before they form a white dot, LOL, but then they are just red spots. Hopefully my new Make Up For Ever Palette will get here so and I can try the green concealer on them. :o) So it's just brows, eye liner, mascara and a bit of eyeshadow for me.

I have a wedding to go to on Saturday, so I want it to clear up a bit. I'm excited to see what my face will turn out like. I haven't decided on a shadow color b/c there's really nothing I have to match my shirt, so it'll be a mixing process. Maybe I'll have time to do a video. Hopefully. I'm doing browns with a teal/aqua/light blue shadow. MAC Shimmermint S/S, BE Pond, BE Freedom, MAC Blue Brown & MAC Teal, somewhere in those colors is the color of my top. Maybe I'll post a pic of it, hehe.

11.6.08 - MAC Purples

Well, I did like 3 vids tonight, so I'll have to edit them all in the AM and get them uploaded. :o)

The first video I did on blowing my hair out. Not that it was requested, but I love the turnout and I'm so pleased I figured out a routine that works for me, and it might just help someone else.



The 2nd was on tonight's looks, I'll get to that in a second...

The 3rd was a "What's in your Bag" Tag... I was tagged by Brittney, but it looks like her account is missing. :o( Anyways, I'm not sure who I'm tagging yet, but I did the vid, it's kinda boring, haha.



I was going to do a Haul Vid, however, I was running out of time, and thought I'd just tell ya'all what I got from MAC last week:

You know what I hate...

I hate when you try to do eye make-up after your wax your brows... nothing hardly sticks there, and 12+ hours later, they are still a bit red. So, no pictures of my quick look today. I used UD's Ammo Shadow Box Palette. I love it. :o) I'm rather sad there aren't very many colors I'd truly wear, in the Book of Shadows Palette. I want so much from the Sephora F&F Sale, that I'm on the fence with it. I guess it depends on what my fiancé says my budget is! I'd like some matching liners to go with my MAC Pearlglides's for my waterline (as they are not w/l safe) but I'm having trouble deciding go with MUFE or UD... hum...

11.3.08 - Sick

Brad was laid off all last week due to a slow down in production, at his work. Thank heavens he was off because he got a cold... and now I have it. :o( But, I have to work. He goes back to work Monday night and still has a bad cough. Mine started out with a sore throat and over the weekend, progressed to nasal and head congestion. My throat is better, but now my nose is running. I hate taking meds, even non-drowsy ones, because they usually still make me drowsy, so the only time I can take them is when I'm at home. I don't understand how my nose can be stuffy and running at the same time...

Anyways, this is why there is no Halloween look... so sorry. :o(
