Sept/Oct Life Update!

Advice please

Wednesday, September 11

I'm pretty behind on blog posts. If you're a part of a few facebook groups or on my personal facebook page, then you know I have been up to a lot makeup-wise! I just don't do so well at actually writing up the blog posts on my page. 

So I was wondering, would you like me to posts my entries from oldest to current, mix it up--old and new content, or say forget about the old stuff and just start posting about the latest hauls and looks I've been doing? 

I'm up for anything really.  Although I won't lie, I'm mostly excited about the new FOTDs I've been doing as I have been going to drag shows on a weekly basis and tend to up the makeup drama when I go out.

Any advice or encouraging words you have for me would be greatly appreciated! <3

FOTD: Heroine Champagne

Wednesday, August 21

I did a quick and easy look using Milani, Urban Decay, and MAC.



Eyes
Milani Shadow Eyez - Champagne Toast

Face
Smashbox Photofinish primer
Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation shade 5.5
Chanel - Natural Finish Pressed Powder - 140 Muscade

Cheeks
Milani - Luminoso

Lips
MAC - Heroine

I think my eye makeup is missing mascara and eyeliner to define my eyes more. What do you think, too plain or just right?

Salma Hayek Nuance Party

Tuesday, August 20

Oh hey, remember me? I remember you and I owe you lots and lots of blog posts. Let's start with this one. :-)

Back in June (yes, June *cries*) I attended a Salma Hayek Nuance Party hosted by the beautiful Brittany of Clumps of Mascara.

We were at Urban Rethink, in downtown Orlando. Brittany talked about the Nuance brand and went over the makeup line, skincare line, and did fun giveaways. Plus there was food. You can always win me over with fun, festivities, and food!

Here's a bit of information about the brand for those of you who are not too familiar with them. 

About
A unique collection that combines exotic ingredients and ancient beauty secrets passed down through generations. The proprietary formulas are created using modern science to provide the most effective results. These products are designed to help every woman enhance the nuances that define her individual beauty.

The Nuance Salma Hayek collection embodies Salma’s family heritage. The products represent the fusion of her grandmother’s cosmetology training with her own vision of beauty, shaped by years of travel around the world. Nuance Salma Hayek was conceived for women who seek high-quality, efficacious beauty products customized to address their personal skincare, body care, haircare and cosmetic needs.

 We all got fun goodie bags full of Nuance products.
 I also won another goodie bag for answering a trivia question correctly.  My sister ended up being the recipient of the bag.
 Here we are trying out the foundations.
 Everyone chatting after the formal presentation.
 Corrinne and Alicia
 Nidia and myself.
 Phyrra and myself.
 Alicia and myself. - Aren't her glasses awesome?!
 Autumn and I.
 Corrinne and I.
  The lovely Kari and I.

I have to thank Phyrra for this stunning picture of us. Also, props to my makeup and hair for behaving that day! Thanks again Phyrra!

I love my friends in the Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida. We like to meet up to gab about makeup and have a great time. I need to see my friends again very soon - I'm having withdrawals!

July Ipsy + Epic Mail Day Haul

Tuesday, July 30


I've been bitten by the youtube bug again! Sometimes it is more fun to talk about the products you have than write a blog post.  I also know I will not become a better youtuber if I don't start making more videos and practicing my editing skills. So here is my latest video - a July Ipsy unboxing plus sharing some goodies I got in the mail.  I would love it if you headed over to youtube to "thumbs up" the video if you enjoyed it.  Constructive criticism here is welcomed also. :-)




Do you have an Ipsy subscription? Did you get the same products I did? Let me know!
