Popeyez Brown

Hey Guys and Dolls!

Today’s video is another in my Pop-Eyes Series (I’m calling it Popeyez because it sounds like Popeye). This look is great because purple looks good on pretty much everyone, despite what some people thing about it making them look bruised. You just need to be careful of fall-out! So while this look will work for just about everyone, Brown eyes will especially POP with this combination.

I also want to mention, that even though these shadows look great in person, they photograph kind of…. well… not so great up-close. This is one of the problems you can ahve when you use  all-shimmery shadows (though sometimes it’s ok). Also some of the colors in the palettes are really pigmented (typically the metallic finish and darker colors) and some are  sheer.  I still think these are a great bargain and they are especially good for people who want color with out the POW, if you’re on a budget, plus as far as I know Physician’s Formula Doesn’t test on Animals.

OK ready for Pics & Prodz?

HP Series Gryffindor

Hi Guys and Dolls!

This video was incredibly difficult to get up. As some of you may know, my computer is in the shop (see my computer woes post).  I’m using my older-than-dirt- back-up computer so please forgive me if this post and corresponding video are a touch rough. When you use your computer as much as I do, and one day it mysteriously won’t turn on, it feel like someone cut off your right hand (or left for you lefties out there!) and I must admit, I’m a little lost without my computer 🙂 Let’s call hope it’s a cheap fix! Editing this video on my mom’s computer gave me a hand-cramp like you wouldn’t imagine! OK enough complaining, Here’s a ceremonial Pics & Prodz:

What I used:

Moisturizer  (you want your skin to be hydrated so the face-paint doesn’t stain )

MAC Studio Fix Powder

NYX Black eyeshadow

MAC Technakohl Eyeliner

Make Up For Ever 12 Flash Color Palette (Brown and Black)

Sugarpill Chroma Lust “Goldilux” Mixed with MAC Fix + to create a eyeshadow-paint

MAC Brick Lipliner

Wet ‘n’ Wild 911 Matte Lipstick

Thank you so much for stopping by 🙂

Computer woes

Hey Guys and Dolls!

Super-Sucky news: My Computer wouldn’t turn on yesterday- as in not at all. I think it *might* be the power supply, but I honestly have no idea. I really hope it’s not too costly to fix. I’m taking it to a repair shop, and hopefully it’s something small.  Luckily I still have my ancient HP but doing anything on this thing is like watching paint dry. Editing/uploading videos is a MASSIVE pain on this computer, so forgive me if things run slow (or not-at all) until I can fix my “good computer”.

In other news I went to a craft store today to pick up some art-supplies for up-coming videos (yayness!). I picked yo lace and sequins as a teaser.   I have contacted all of the winners of my Brush Giveaway, however I’ve only heard back from 2. If I don’t hear back from the 4 remaining winners by Sunday night I’ll pick new winners.

I’m so glad that tons of you are loving my sunscreen video!

Have a great weekend and I’ll see ya when I see ya!

BFTE Sells Sample jars of their mineral makeup for only $2 a pop, or a full-size  jar for only $6.50! They also sell Red Cherry Lashes, and various other beauty goodies. I’ve been working on a swatch project for their site (if you see a swatch, I probably did it) for a long time so I’ve at least swatched a very large portion of their color selection, and even though not every color appeals to me, and some of the colors are a bit repetitive,  every time I get a new “batch” to swatch there are a handful of colors that make me squeal. I really need to do a post on my fave colors from them, and perhaps add swatches to my swatch gallery, so I can share their more unique colors.
