Meet Baby Junior! =-)

Sorry I haven't been online much lately- I usually get on Facebook or Twitter a little more because I have the apps on my phone but I haven't actually gotten online since I had my baby. I haven't worn makeup or gotten more than 3-4 hours of sleep a night either! So the only thing I can share are a few pics of the new man in my life- my son Junior!! =-D

I made a quick gif with a few pics- if you follow me on Facebook chances are you have already seen these and others. Hopefully once my baby starts getting more zzz's at night things will get a bit easier so that I can start up my makeup and blogging soon. Hopefully everyone has had a great month so far!! =-) Till next time!

Galaxy Nails Pt. 1

My cousin Michelle and I got together to do our nails a couple of weeks ago and she wanted galaxy nails. At first I didn't think I could- but after watching some youtube- I was willing to try and so happy I did. With a sponge tip and some dotting tools- we achieve this awesome nail look!

Colors used in the actually galaxy part with a sponge: coral, white, yellow, blue glitter, and Hidden Treason from Sally Hanson. All of this over a black base and white for the stars with a dotting tool. A thick clear coat and it was done. I cannot describe how shiny and sparkly this galaxies look like in the sun. They were gorgeous. I like them so much she did the same look on my nails- which is the next blog post that will be up soon. Hoped you liked the look- we loved it!! Till next time!!

Panda Nails!!

My best bud Sarahi came over and I did her nails- Pandas!! They were so cute!! We took the pics without cleaning up the edges unfortunately- but they were so worth taking pictures of regardless. I used a neon green from Claire's as the base- two coats to be exact. 

Then, with White Out from Sally Hanson Xtreme Wear I drew on the panda's face and filled it in. With my dotting tools I dotted on black ears, eyes, and a nose. With a tiny dotting tool I gave the pandas some pupils.  One nail got a little messed up- (above) poor panda!!

She loved them and so did I! Hope you did too. =-) Till next time!

Dramatic Purple, Red, & Black!

Hey everyone! As you might have seen- the last blog post was a look I did on my cousin and this is the other eye I did on her. I decided to do something dark and dramatic- something kind of gothy because I haven't done anything like this in such a long time. I used my 120 palette for all the colors except the glitter. 

First off, I applied ELF Eyelid Primer over her entire eye and then NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk to get a good base. Then, I mixed two of the purples and applied them over her entire lid.  I also mixed two different reds to achieve the color that I used from her crease up. I went in very low into her inner corner with this red mix and blended it out to her outer brow as well. Then with another brush I filled in her crease with a black to add definition and a darker hue to the look.

 With LA Splash Proof Sealer on her lid over the purple, I applied Bachelorette Eye Lights from Glamour Doll Eyes all over the lid. It is such a gorgeous glitter!!A super thin liquid liner that was winged and pointy in the inner corner, mascara, and some red and black on the lower lash line. I seriously loved this look! Plus- it's always fun playing makeup with my cousin- she's freakin awesome! Till next time!

Bright Greens W/A Touch of Bright Hues

My cousin Michelle came over yesterday and we played makeup! I haven't really done my own all week except for today but I've posted nothing but neutral looks so I didn't even bother taking pics lol. I decided to do something colorful on her since it was just for play- and I loved it! I did the eyebrows a bit dramatic- but I kind of was going for drama so it went well in my opinion.

How I achieved this- I used the 120 palette over ELF Eye Primer and NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk. I then went for a golden white color in her inner tear duct. Used 3 different yellows in her inner eye, used two different light greens in her middle eye, and used a dark matte green in her outer 'v'. Under neath I used a bright blue, a bright purple, and a neonish pink. Black eyeliner and mascara. 

The other eye was a different look and therefore I left it for another blog post.  It's a very awesome dramatic look. So- watch out for it!! Till next time!! =-)

FOTD- Neutral

I did nothing special but love these neutrals so much I thought I should share. I know I haven't done anything bold or bright in a long time- but this pregnancy has really changed my makeup looks somehow.  These are a whole bunch of neutrals from different palettes- I just mixed and matched till it was glowy, shiny, but neutral with a kick of pink in my tear duct area.

I used Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner in Pure White in my water line. Also, I've been trying something a bit different with my eyebrows. Believe it or not- they have been terrible lately. I over plucked and over trimmed =-( It was a total mistake because I was in such a hurry when I did it. I really regret not taking my time. 

Regardless, I usually just pencil them in but lately I've been using a matte brown shadow in my arch to darken them up and I am starting to like it. Since I have been letting my hair grow out and just using henna once every few months- my hair is much darker and this look seems to fit better. On my lips- L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm in Tender Mauve. Review coming soon!! Till next time!
