Plum Look+ OOTD

The outfit's nothing exciting(didn't do much today so I didn't dress up), but I really like these shoes so I'm posting. He wanted in on the pics since it's one of those rare occasions he's wearing a shirt. I made another tutorial here...not the greatest because I'm not feeling so well. I thought it was just allergies since they were acting up horribly yesterday, but I'm coming down with a fever too. I need to touch up my hair color this week...after a month or so it starts turning this weird color.
The eyeshadows are all Mac today-Expensive Pink, Star Violet, Carbon, and Dazzlelight

I think I'm gonna put on some warm pjs and watch a cheesy movie after finding some kind of medicine to take.

Outfit and More

I've had this dress for a couple years and haven't used it because it's too big. I added the belt to keep it from falling and to try and squish the fabric together, and while I don't hate it I see that it bulked me up in the middle...oh well I can eat a huge meal in this and nobody will notice if my belly expands ;). I literally scrunched my hair and called it done this morning since it was still semi curly when I woke up...and I'm lazy.
One side falling here so it looks like I have a deflating tit.
Here's a better view of the little pot belly it gave me

Fiddle Dee Dee

Nothing much to post today, but earlier I made a video for how I curled my hair in my post yesterday. It looks different in this video because I fiddled with it more than yesterday when I pretty much just took the clips out and left my hair alone. I left my ends out of the iron.

Bronze with Smudgey Liner

I did a video for this look on my youtube even though this isn't really that nice/intricate(I have my video bar on the side over that way---> too in case you haven't noticed it before). The hair's a crunchy mess...I used way too much hairspray because it rained earlier and it's quite humid now. Obviously I don't use hairspray that often since it looks like I'd ignite if I come within 3 feet of someone smoking a cigarette.

Mac Way to Love l/s
My bf thinks I'm ashamed of him since I never talk about him or post pics of him(even though he knows this is a makeup blog and I don't really include personal/daily life stuff here). So this half of my post is for you dear Luke...I'm not that ashamed of you.
Luke likes Clamato beer(eww), annoying music, not wearing a shirt, getting enough sun to maintain a good tan, and sleeping. The poor guy has been putting up with me since January of 2004 when I was an evil 16 year old brat.
I'm in my scummy house clothes because I'll be home for the rest of the day.

A Couple Tags

I'm a bit(very) late doing these tags...

I was tagged by Celly and Khaay for this first one.
  • Open your first photo folder
  • Scroll down to the 10th photo.
  • Post that photo and story on your blog.
  • Tag five others (or more) friends to do the same.
Nothing interesting and my sister back in 07 about a month before her first birthday. She didn't have much hair yet. My hair looks a few inches longer than it is now. I didn't realize it til recently but after looking at other old pics I noticed I trim too much too often these days so my hair has gradually been getting shorter. I'm putting a stop to it because I want my longer hair back.

I was tagged by Zoe for this one... my daily makeup routine. These pics are crap because it's 3:00 a.m and I hurried through taking them.
1.) Olay SPF30 face sunburns easily.
2.) My face product varies...I switch every once in a while, but right now I'm using NYC's loose mineral finishing powder with my Coastal Scents brush that I should wash.
3.) If I'm having a bad eyebrow day I fill in the sparse areas with this angled brush and whatever light brown matte shadow I find first.
4.)Blush...Mac Sunbasque is the one I use most. I love the bronzy color.
5.)Prime with L'oreal de-crease
6.)Eyeshadow, liner, and falsies last. I didn't take a pic since I use different eyeshadows.

Very nice, how much?

I didn't think so after looking in the mirror, but after seeing these pics it hit me that I've spent the day looking like a hooker. I didn't think it was so bad since the dress isn't really tight and my boots are flat, but oh well.

Off topic but I was at my best friends house with my brother and a few others last night. We had nothing to do so my brother started calling people pretending to be from the "Luscious Panda Escort Service" that they came up with out of the blue. It was amusing.

Cavewoman hair for me today(if they had curling irons)...big and messy :D. I actually like my eye makeup today since I didn't half ass it like I have been.

I've had the CS 88 palette for a few months now, and I'm getting bored of it. At first I wasn't really interested in buying other eyeshadows because I had plenty of color options in it, but it's lost it's appeal.
I'm not usually this casually dressed, but I'm doing another outfit post to compensate for the lack of nice fotds lately...I'm sure it's just a phase and I'll go back to doing better looks soon. I told my brother to stand up when he takes pics because it seems like they're unflattering if he points the camera up while he sits down but he didn't listen.

Another Outfit

Nothing special, but I felt like posting and my makeup once again is not that interesting. I felt a little hung over this morning and didn't want to put much effort in my makeup. These heels are around 4 and a half inches, but they're incredibly comfy. My hair's's windy.

Outfit (went to a wedding)

Just noticed I hit 500 followers. Thank you to all of you who follow/read/comment! I really do appreciate it :). I haven't been able to read or comment on a lot of blogs this week because I've only been spending a few minutes at a time on the computer, but I will get caught up tomorrow or so. And thanks to those of you who have tagged me...I haven't forgot, and I will get to it :).
People were dressed pretty casually so I ended up looking extremely overdressed. I'd much rather be overdressed than underdressed though so I didn't mind. I overslept and didn't have much time to fix myself up so no fancy makeup :(.

I don't have massive hips, it's the ruffles/tiers of my skirt adding bulk :P. It's lace, and I should have got a better pic because I really like it.

Crave Jewelry + Curling Iron Review

Sarah at Crystal Cravings sent these two beautiful pieces, and I absolutely love them. The earrings are sturdy/very well made so I don't have to worry about being extra careful in fear of ruining them. The necklace is also super pretty...I especially love how it looks when the sunlight hits it. I know I'll be wearing both pieces often (not together of course since the necklace is silver and the earrings are gold). She has lots of lovely pieces to choose from, so check her out.

All of the gold is gold filled so no flaking and it'll hold up well, and all the crystals she uses are authentic Swarovski crystals.

Mention me when you order and you'll get 10% off :).
The earrings
The necklace
Off topic, but I'm having a good boob day and I had to point that out :P. It must be the shirt since my weight doesn't really fluctuate...they're usually so close to non-existant.
A few have asked about the curling iron in my last post so I thought I could do a little review(Bed Head 1 3/4 inch).

~The clamp is very light which I thought was good since it'll glide down your hair easily when you're pulling the iron down to the ends.
~It was ready to use within a minute or so. I didn't time it so that's not exact, but it did heat up quickly.
~The temperature is adjustable and goes up to 400.
~If you watched the hair curling video I posted last week you can see that I do a lot of shaking my head and adjusting to get the curls how I want them to look. With this 1 3/4 inch iron I don't have to shake/fiddle with my hair as much since it's the perfect size for the really loose curls I like.
~Since it's quite large it might be useless for those with hair shorter than shoulder length. It would probably only flip your ends.
I have zero complaints...I really like it.
And a pic of my makeup to finish the post. I used a light pink and a darker one from the Profusion 98 palette.

New Curling Iron and Cheapie Palette

Blogger has been so dial up slow so I've avoided it the past few days.

I just wore a bronze shadow by itself since I really liked the color. Unfortunately I didn't get a good photo since I was in a rush to go shopping...I was running late.

I see a lot of awesome hauls from Ross/Marshalls/TJ Maxx so I had to stop when I saw a Ross and Marshalls right next to each other. Marshalls had a lot of Lancome stuff but it looked like everything had been opened and touched...yuck. I found this 1 3/4 inch curling iron at Ross, and I also bought this Profusion 98 palette. The colors are pretty tame compared to the Coastal Scents 88 palette, but that's why I bought it.

Here's a comparison of the 1 3/4 iron and my old 1 1/2.
The 98 palette
Just testing the eyeshadows hair is kinda damp and matted down and I don't have anything on my lips :{
Most of them are pretty pigmented and apply smoothly. A couple were on the dry and chalky side, but for $7 it's not a big deal.

Video-Curling My Hair

Why do my thumbnails always have to be so time I should just keep staring at the camera and smiling.

9 or 10 sections would make it look better, but I did 7 to keep the video short as possible. I don't do anything special really...having layers helps. I'm still planning on growing them out because I want one length hair.

Photo tutorial

I never do these so I thought I'd make one today. I used the 88 matte palette(white, black, grayish blue). The photo quality is awful since I zoomed in on all of them...that's why I added the dotted lines.
1.) White from lashline to brow
2.)Blue on outer lid and in the crease. Blend inward to soften the edges
3.) Make a sideways v- I used black e/s
4.) Blend inward, but not too far so you don't completely cover the blue.
5.) Add shadow to bottom lashline if you want. Then add liner.
...apply mascara and falsies and you're done.
