My green nails from my previous post are still going strong. Not a single chip :D.

My makeup from Friday night. Ever since I bought this neutral 10 palette from Claire's it's been my go to palette for both day and evening looks. I love palettes that you can create a complete look with(at least one highlight color, one dark color for defining crease/outer v, plus a variety of in between colors). Definitely well worth the $6.50 that it cost.
I'm wearing
Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse-it seems like a lot of people dislike this one, but I remember liking it when I was younger so I bought it. I'm more of a tinted moisturizer girl, but I still love this stuff. Matte, but not cakey or powdery looking.
Mac Sunbasque with Physician's Formula shimmer strip in Vegas Strip lightly applied over it

L'oreal de-crease
Claire's palette
Maybelline black gel liner
dollar store falsies
NYC brush on brow kit

Maybelline Color Sensational Pink Please l/s
I think I was wearing Maybelline Color Sensation gloss in Pink Perfection over it.

Crappy phone pic of the palette from Claire's. Basic, even kinda boring looking, but I've been using it a LOT.

Up Past My Bedtime

It's 2:11 a.m and I'm nowhere near tired so I'll post pics of my makeup earlier today. I had to hold my bangs because they don't stay put when I try to move them away from my face.

And the Claire's nail polish in Secret Garden in my previous post isn't crap! Two coats plus topcoat here. It was completely opaque after the second coat, compared to having to apply four coats of the polish in Glitz and Glam.

Oh, and the list of makeup I'm wearing...
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Tinted Moisturizer
CoverGirl blush in Rose Silk

L'oreal De-crease
a pale pink on my lid and plummy purple in the crease from a Profusion 98 palette
Mac Vanilla Pigment for browbone
Wet N Wild Idol Eyes pencil in Techno(lined around my eyes)
Maybelline black gel liner on upper lashline and waterline
false lashes

Maybelline Color Sensational Gloss in Pink Perfection

Hey Hey Hey

My poor neglected blog. I created it right after I turned 22, and I'm now a month away from the elderly age of 24. Woo! Geritol shots at the bingo hall, hell yeah! Maybe not quite there yet, but my soul weeps when I realize I'm about to turn another year older. Ok, pity party stops here. I'm clearly moving toward senile territory...

Sorry for the weird glow/blurriness in these photos btw. I've really only used this camera to make videos, and haven't messed around with the camera settings enough to where I can get normal looking pictures if I'm not taking them in daylight. I'm slightly camera impaired.

I haven't used hair dye since I darkened it back in June. I missed having hair that actually feels like normal human hair,so I had to say goodbye to lightening it. I've been using henna every once in a while since I read that it would help add body, and I'm all for anything that can give me bigger hair. Plus I like the slight red tint it provides because I don't want my hair color to look too flat/dull. The red is especially noticeable outside in daylight, but it's still a little noticeable indoors.

Makeup I was wearing in the above:
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Tinted Moisturizer
Mac Sunbasque blush

N.Y.C Browser Brush on Brow Kit in Brunette
L'oreal de-crease
Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow in Not Just Nudes(lid, the darkest color)
Hard Candy Bronzer in Tropics(lid, to set the cream shadow)
Maybelline Natural Smokes quad(crease and lower lashline, the brown labeled "crease")
Mac Carbon(outer v, outer 1/3 of lower lashline)
Physician's Formula Shimmer Strip in Vegas Strip(under brows and on inner corners)
Maybelline gel liner
Cheap no name false lashes

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Dreamy

I bought a Maybelline e/s quad in Sunlit Bronze a few days ago. Really pretty colors, sadly they aren't the greatest quality. I never usually have a problem with Maybelline eyeshadows, but these are so sheer. I'm wearing it in these pics.

I just bought these nail polishes from Claire's. I've only tried Glitz and Glam so's so pretty but so sheer. I had to apply 4 coats so my expectations for the other two aren't so high.
L to R: Glitz and Glam, Cosmic, Secret Garden

Final thing for now, my most recent videos.
