Boorrring ...I know lol

I know....I am soo boring. I did a few looks but haven't had the time since it's getting towards the end of the semester to upload the pictures or even get them onto the computer to look at them. I have a really pretty spring/easter look. I also need to find a way to change the email on this blog so it matches my youtube channel so I don't have to keep logging in and out to go through each one. Okay, maybe I'll go look through my pictures now.

Giuliana and Bill is on though. I <3 them so much. She is such a strong woman and a great role model for young girls (although, she is too skinny, but I know she's had a hard time gaining weight like her doctor wanted for her to be pregnant).

watching HSN - Boscia

it's pronounced "bow-sha" since I know a lot of people don't know how to pronounce it correctly.

The mask they are doing - the luminizing black mask - looks sooooooo cool and awesome!

It's a pore strip for your really, really is, you can hear it pulling all the stuff out of your pores...

I NEEED THIIISSSSS. Damnit I wish I had money and it's not on dermstore because that too faced to go palette is now sold out and I can't get it anymore and I am not a happy being.

I get to use the dermstore *COUPON* that I got in the myglam bag. I really didn't want to out of sheer, I don't know the word, because I don't want them thinking that it was a good idea (yeah..). But I didn't like my Julep box this month, so I skipped it so I could use that money towards the dermstore purchase.

I am going to get the Beautyfix Secret pick thing for $30 and then the Tarte Palette to Go for $22. I would get one of their $36 ones if I had the money but I don't. Sooo. Yeah. I really want to try the Beautyfix thing because I want to use Beautyfix as a subscription service where I pick the samples, but it's $50 and I cannot afford that even though it's only every quarter. I may start in the summer when I am working more. We will see.

So excited for my Beauty Army samples this month, and from the clues to the MyGlam bag I am totally completely STOKED for that too!. I'm going to try and clean out my SD cards so I can film an unboxing...

Spring 2012 Makeup and Color Trends

I mentioned this in another post about trends - I have no "connections" so the way I find these is just by doing searches and such and looking at what others are talking about and coming out with.

My thoughts about Spring:
 - Spring for me, no matter what the year, is more about pastel colors, fresh colors. Spring is about new life springing up (pardon the pun), flowers, warmer weather, greener leaves and grass, birds, bees, baby animals. So I take those feelings about the season and put them into my looks. I don't see another season where pastels would be an amazing fit. You can where them in Winter too, but for me winter is about the cooler toned pastels. Spring is warmed toned. Light pinks, lavender, lime green (pastel), yellows, oranges, baby blues, corals, peach etc.
-I'll post up nail polishes I have that I would wear for spring, as well as some makeup as well. 


Nail Trends from Harper's Bazaar
-They mention "Dark Burgundy at Donna Karen" - for me that is a fall color, possibly winter and I would probably never wear it in the spring/summer.
-I'm excited for "Fancy Patterns" - 

I just finished a video tutorial and pictures for an easter/spring look with all the colors that I think embody easter. I will at least post the pictures. I need to look at the video and decide if I want to put it up and figure out how to edit it. And I'm in absolute love with it and realized how good this blush I have looks on me. And then I realized that I really want to order some of the ELF mineral blushes.

*hopes and wishes* - and a debbie downer moment

....."the action of hoping and wishing"

Beauty Army announced a deal that when you buy a Pink Sugar product you get a free deluxe sample of their pink sugar scrub....if only I had the money.

So I asked if we would be able to choose them as a sample (specifically come April 1st) and I was told that the solid perfume is already an option......

......which pretty much means that the chances of me be able to chose it are slim to none....and I really, really want it. It's probably the first time since they opened that I was overly exstatic to try a product...if they're gone or I don't have an option to get it I'm going to be quite sad and upset.

I know I'm being a debbie downer right now, but I had to get it out somewhere. I'm already psyching myself out that it's not going to be there and I'm already getting sad/down. Today in general has just been a very off and irritating day already.


On another note, I'm skipping my Julep box this month because the products this month are just ehh and I don't really like any of the colors they came out with for their spring line.

Instead I am going to take the money ($20) and use it towards using the Dermstore *COUPON* (not a gift card like they're saying) this week. It's $25 off of $50. If I could afford $60 I'd buy the Laura Gellar set they have even though the balance 'n brighten is in medium....

*Debby Downer Moment #2*
I can't find where I put the coupon...I hope it didn't get thrown out......for once I can use something from the MyGlam bag...

Pink and Black Eye Looks

I love to wear pink eyeshadows. And I've in some places that people are afraid to use them, or don't like to use them (especially bright ones) and they say "well, I'll just use it as a blush" and I don't really get why. You really cannot put in on your lid and leave it like that, you really do need some sort of neutral or another shade of pink to blend and such. And I have a lot of red on my face, and actually, really cannot wear blush without pilling on the foundation.

So anyways, these are the ways that I wear pink eyeshadow. Some are toned down for day time and others are slightly more dramatic for night time. Also keep in mind to play around. Take these as sort of starting out ideas and add some more pink, use less, use more black, smudge the black in a different way etc. I just sit down and play with eyeshadow ALL THE TIME! It's the only way to figure out what works for you, what colors you like etc.

Also, I ONLY used eyeshadow. I did not use black eyeliner or mascara. The black liner you see is eyeshadow. I did use other shadows including a shimmery tone close to my skin, as well as lighter pinks and a bright pink eyeliner from BH cosmetics (which can be replaced with the eyeshadow). Since I have the eyeliner though, I do use like I did in the picture. I'll note what I used in each one.

And YES...I did do only one eye for each look so the pictures of both my eyes look funny...hehe

I'm going to post them, and then edit with the description and information tomorrow when I can decifer each one and what I used..

Happy St. Patrick's Day! - Also, March Beauty Army

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
(I'm very proud to be Irish <3)
Only got to wear emerald green eyeliner from Loreal because I had to work. Also, had green and a little bit of gold for my nails. NOT a fan of the eyeliner..I'll get the name later on.

So, I came on here to do a post on Beauty Army with pictures and everything, and as the computer was loading, I hit a wall. So I'm exhausted....
I said in my previous post that I wasn't all that excited for this month's Beauty Army box. I'm not unhappy with it since a new product got added in right before I made my choice and I got the SunFX Shimmer Lotion (I love shimmer!).

I'm also going to do a post. I did several looks with pink and black eyeshadow. I did this because I was watching a video by BH Cosmetics, and a girl commented about what to do with pink and black eyeshadows, and I LOVE to wear pink eyeshadow, so I sent her a message saying I could show her a couple. So I have those all done, just need to post them up. So I will be doing that tomorrow as well. I haven't been feeling well and had to work and haven't been sleeping soooo it took me an extra day or two to do that. BUT, it is done and I'm very happy with the looks that I did. They're simple but can be used either every day or to go out.

Ok.....goodnight :)
