My Summer Loves

First off, how the hell are ya guys?! I know it’s been the better part of a century since I’ve posted! Okay so it hasn’t quite been that long, but I could feel that little blogger in me screaming “Post something, ANYTHING!” So here I am alive and mostly kickin’! I guess I should update everyone on my whereabouts and what the hell I’ve been doing with myself.

It’s Party Time!

Since Halloween is this Wednesday all the festivities will be taking place this weekend. I am honestly not a big costume or dress-up kinda gal when it cones to this holiday, but since Tim is a giddy little school girl for Halloween I promised I’d do something :). Since its last minute and I’m without costume for tonight, what better than some bad ass makeup?!

I have always envied the ladies who can perfect the sugar skull makeup, and decided to give it a try :). I’ll admit I was nervous, but once I dove in I had fun doing this look and it was surprisingly easy. So since my trial run went swimmingly I am definitely posting the result for you lovely nerds!

It needs to be tweaked a little but I love this look! It’s scary and adorable (according to Tim lol) so I know he loves it.

I’m more than curious to hear your thoughts!

Happy Halloween Weekend Nerds!

Day Nineteen: Your Favorite Makeup Style

It shouldn’t come as much of a shock that my favorite makeup style is a smokey eye. Since starting this challenge I’ve done a few different smokey eye looks, and I’ve always received compliments by friends and family when I wear this look to parties. I think this style is gorgeous on whoever is daring enough to wear it :). If I wear this bold eye look though I don’t wear a bright lip with it, I add a nude lipstick or gloss so the emphasis is on my eyes otherwise you look more hooker and less sexy lol.

Here’s a collection of some different smokey eye looks I’ve worn…

Day Seventeen: Your Sexy Smokey Eyes

I haven’t been using my NYX Box Of Smokey Collection much lately cause I’ve been trying to use more colorful shadows and try new looks. Today was a nice reunion with this favorite of mine and I used the Classic Smokey section on this wonderful palette for my challenge today. The funny thing is I have this  Classic Smokey in their smaller compact form so you can tell my go to look was a smokey eye :).

Day Sixteen: Barbie Inspired Look

Who didn’t grow up playing with the iconic doll? I had tons of Barbie dolls growing up and wanted to be Barbie when I grow up, that and a Spice Girl which I still kind of do cause I adore them! This challenge was somewhat of a challenge cause I am not blonde haired or blue eyed, so without a ton of peroxide and pricey contacts I decided whatever look came from this challenge there would be some bright pink!
