Glitzy Eyes

I can't remember all of the products I used, but here is what I can recall:

Vintage selection pp
MAC Mauvement pigment
black in crease
random browns to blend
Weekend cream bronzer
Sephora Perfect Nude lipgloss

Not sure why you can't enlarge the pics, but I'll try to find some better ones.

MAC's Vintage Selection paint pot was a limited edition product and I am SO glad I picked it up. I can wear it alone for a light shimmer, pack it on for more drama, or add a shimmer eyeshadow overtop and BABY, its a wrap!!

Do any of you have Vintage Selection or Mauvement pigment? Do you usually prefer a shimmery eye, or more of a matte look?

Lancome concealer used under eyes
Rock & Republic Pressed Powder (review coming soon)
MAC Bronzer stick in Guilty Bronze

brown shadow to blend - I may have used a face powder, can't remember.

100 Subscriber Giveaway

Hi Makeup Lovers!

When I started this blog over a year ago, I had no idea that anyone would care or want to know what I thought about makeup (or anything for that matter). I've learned so much from all of you and I appreciate the love and support.

It means alot to me to have reached 100 subscribers (I am currently at 101!!) when not long ago my numbers were in the single digits lol! Each and every one of you guys are appreciated and while I hope to get 100 more subscribers in the future,for now, I'm ecstatic :-)

As a token of my appreciation I'm be hosting a giveaway!!

Lilac Lips and New MAC Skinsheen Bronzer Stick

Okay, Okay...wait, wait, wait,...I tried to crop out my cardigan in the pics since my leopard headscarf is visible. So I only have on the leopard print headscarf to hold down my "edges" while I drive to the train station in the morning. I know it doesn't match but I often walk to my car/ greet and talk to my neighbors in the parking lot in get-ups similar to this. Don't cut me!

Anywho - this face is pretty simple as I was clearly in a rush lol. Neutral eyes with lilac lips using Revlon lipstick in 001 Lilac with a touch of MAC Wrong Spell lipglass. Lancome's Hypnose Drama mascara has been holding down my lashes lately and I am loving it. On my cheeks I'm wearing the new Limited Edition Skinsheen Bronzer Stick by MAC in Guilty Bronze. LOVE THIS BRONZER!

Birds & Berries

Here is a quick FOTD from a few weeks ago. I used MAC All that Glitters on the lid and MAC Birds & Berries on the outer corner, crease, and under eye area with a random brown to blend.

Love this color...I can't believe I forgot about it.

The beenie is from Claire's, hair is twisted in preparation for a twist-out, earring are from the beauty supply.
