MUL: Blue-orange on a Stick

16 Feb

Hello everyone! I can’t think of creative names so this is the best I came up with. Today’s makeup look I decided to mix blue and orange together and have it in an darker to lighter effect. Here’s the look:

Is it me of does my photography skills seem to suck when it matters the most? BTW, my eye is all flaky because of the dry weather… my eye cream isn’t working wonders.

Products used were: NYX White eyeshadow base, Maybelline Spirited Seas Quad (baby blue), Lavshuca OR-1 palette (orange), Joe Fresh single in Pale Pink (highlighter), .

After I took the picture I totally forgot about my eyeliner… =.=”

Bronze Turquoise Look

Hello everyone!

Man, rediscovering photos that I should have posted up but here is one that I did commonly during the summer and now too. Brights are still popular even in the Fall/Winter makeup trend.

Review: theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer

8 Mar

Hello everyone! I have picked up this bronzer lately and since I’m not really a bronzer person I mainly use this as a contour or sometimes a blush.

Review: I’m not a cheek product type of girl and probably won’t get into it any time soon but I got this as a gift with purchase. This is actually a really nice natural looking bronzer and it gives a nice sun-kissed look to my skin. The color is matte, no shimmer and isn’t orange like some other bronzers on the market. It is very pigmented, smooth powder with a soft brown undertone and is also great for contouring (especially in the winter months where I’m paler than my usual skintone) but put on too much it can look a little muddy on the skin. Packaging is flimsy cardboard and it makes it easy to dirty the packaging with the bronzer and it isn’t travel friendly I feel as if the powder will break if I take it travelling.  

Cost: $26CDN @ Rexall pharmacies or $19USD

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for those looking for a natural looking bronzer but this will not work for those with darker skin tones (might not show up).

Challenge: Makeup Posting

9 Sep

Hello everyone! I just realized that I don’t have many posts that post up makeup looks… thinking that I love makeup you’d think I’d wear makeup right? I started out with posting makeup looks then I suppose I just drifted to some life stuff then makeup product reviews… well that is now going to stop!

I still want to have time between my studying to play with makeup and test makeup products. So I am going to challenge myself to post up a makeup look once every week. This challenge will go on until Dec I suppose… perhaps I should film them as well… anyways, for today I’ll show you my no makeup face or the face that I have everyday.

Challenge begins Sept 13, 2010!!

Pet peeves…

27 Feb

Pet peeves… everyone has one right? I just rediscovered one of mine today. People who bother you while you are studying. You know the situation… where you are about to get something right or a great idea for the paper and then someone comes in and bothers you resulting in you forgetting what you just realized. RAWR! It’s especially worse in my house due to the fact that my bedroom is shared and my brother or family like to knock on the wall (since the kitchen is just behind my wall one level down) to let me know it’s dinner time for some trivial matter. Especially worse today as I was doing some pretty intense chemistry and my brother knocked on the wall to tell me to eat my dinner. Well you can’t choose your family but if I could I would.

Onto more positive things today, for me I usually don’t get productive until about 3:00 so I ended up practicing some makeup today. The look will be posted up in another post. I don’t like to mix beauty things with blog things…

But I also ended up depotting my Joe Fresh Black eyeshadow and then realized after it was depotted that it was too big for my Annabelle compact.

 That is what it ended up looking… the plastic at the bottom was really really melted and bubbles formed and everything. It took a lot of melting for it to come out.

I’m now comtemplating whether to get a magnetic palette so that I can store in my NYX square eyeshadows. A UNII palette?

Blue Expensive though…$29…

Here is their website if anyone is interested. http://uniicosmetics.com/cart/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=53

Anyways, I should get back to my work and there will be more reviews coming up and other things as well.
