Teal Eyes Tutorial

Hey guys! Long time, no see! I've been SUPER busy with work, still am, but I enjoy doing tutorials so much, that I decided I'd sit down and film one. I have a particular Harley-Davidson shirt that I love wearing, this time with black capri's, and I just love the colors in it. I've used one of MAC's pigment stacks before (Surf the Ocean), which looks great with it, but sometimes that takes a bit of working with. 

In the video I said Aqua was Permanent at PRO, however it looks to have been discontinued since I bought mine. :-( At this time, it is still available in a pot with the Fashion Flower embossing, so pick it up if you like it!

Please let me know how you like this "style" of video, the distance, the angle, the single eye application, etc.

MAC Bloggers' Obsession's Haul

Even thought I was just in St. Louis, Sunday, I ended up placing a MAC order, Tuesday. The MAC store didn't have any Light Plus MSF/N in stock (it was previously named Light Medium), and I REALLY needed that shade. Medium is a bit too pink on me right now, and I swear Light hardly shows up.

I had a couple things in my cart already, the new Prep+Prime Beauty Balm, and the brush promoted with it, the 191. The BB Creme isn't going to be in stores for a week or so, yet, so once I saw the Blogger's Obsession Collection was coming the 21st, I pulled the trigger.

I decided to get Temptalia's Jealousy Wakes, mostly because of her... I just adore her, but it's a really pretty shade, too. I also grabbed Hocus Pocus, purely based on the shade since I had never heard of the blogger that created it. I picked up 2 lip glasses... Evolution Revolution and Sonoran Rain. I do follow those bloggers and the shades just happened to be my favorites of the bunch. I can't wait to try them all.

I also picked up Bottle Green MAC Pro pan shadow. Yep, I love Christine's look she used with it, Juxt & Jealousy Wakes. :o)

Okay, so maybe I was living in the stone age, but I just found out about Gravatar. It stands for globally recognized avatar.

Have you ever left a comment on Temptalia or MakeupGeek? There's no place to log in... yet some people have their own images instead of the flower (on Temptalia) or face (on MakeupGeek). I had ZERO idea how they got their images on there. That is, until a few days ago. I was leaving a comment on SOME website (I don't even remember what one) and it mentioned signing in with WordPress. Well I have a WordPress account (which I need to move my blog over too, but I can't justify paying the self-hosting fees at the moment), so I decided to log in. It took me to the WP site and said something about setting up your avatar, which eventually lead me to Gravatar! It might be a minor thing to some, but I just LOVE avatars. I think you can remember someone based on a picture, easier than a name (sometimes).

So, check it out if you want! I only wish they were supported on Blogger, but not yet anyways.
Now, when visiting the sites, I just have to be sure to put in my email (the same one I signed up for Gravatar with) and voila, there's my image!

St. Louis Haul

My mom, sister-in-law and I went to St. Louis for a Easter girls weekend. We had our makeup done at Nordstroms, at the Laura Mercier Counter. I always feel funny when other people do my makeup, especially since I freelance, myself. Plus, if you're REALLY into makeup, like myself, you usually know how you do things and want them to look. I just had the girl do what she wanted, and did enjoy the look. Hopefully I can re-create it, for you, sometime!

Sephora Haul

I'm finally getting this posted! I've been so busy with work. Expect a St. Louis Haul video, very soon! Also, I have a MAC order, as well as a Cibu order coming Wednesday... Overtime means extra money!!!

Clinique deal from Sephora!!

I JUST got this in my inbox! I'm so excited! I kinda wanted to try the new Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 and now when you get it from Sephora you get a FREE Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Sample!!!

Click on the image to go to Sephora's site and get the deal.

Easing into Spring - Nails

It was beautiful here the past weekend and first part of the week... and this morning it was spitting snow. Argh! We even had to turn on the A/C just a couple days ago, so we could sleep. (We work nights.)

I picked Essie's Turquoise & Caicos just yesterday and was excited to try it. I had nothing like it. I thought it needed a little *umph*, so I added a favorite of mine, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Hidden Treasure. I'm pretty sure it was Limited Edition, but I love this and with the exception of my thumb, I can do one stroke on my nails, which is so nice for application.

Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Review

Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief - 1.7 oz / $34.00

Overall, I'm really enjoying this stuff! It's texture is amazing, light, but rich and very moisturizing. It's great day or night, and even layered. I'm a BIG fan of Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, and to me, this is DDM Gel in a jar but thicker and more moisturizing. I don't always use this twice a day or even daily, but it'll be interesting to see how long it lasts.

Avon 12-in-1 Eye Palette

I received this palette as a gift, from my mother-in-law. Honestly, I was surprised by how much I like it! The video/photos are from a while back, so I don't have much to say right now, but I hope you enjoy!

I did a quick look using some shades in the palette, and snapped quite a few photos, the ones that made the cut are included. Yes, I "Photoshopped" a couple, and took some goofy ones, haha!
