Favorite Purple Shadows

Fall is here... and the best color for fall, I think, are purple toned shadows!!

Whether they are in taupe form, crease color form (dark colors), or pretty lid color form - purples are just really fun to have in my make up drawer. I tend to reach for them when I am getting bored with my browns and neutrals. I also think they make an eye look more feminine - just because they are PURPLE!

Now, sadly, I don't have any bright color purples :( But I do have a bunch of favorites that love to use and switch around.

1) WnW Trio in Mojave Mauves (I forgot to take a pic!) - lovely burgundy color!!! It's actually sheer enough to look really nice in the crease - and VERY blendable!! Really great shadow - one of my favorites.

2-3) Smashbox Trio in Photoshoot - Really soft and pigmented shadows! The only problem with them is that they don't last too long on my lids... but they make AWESOME fall shades! I really like #3 - really good crease shade! It's also a matte shade which makes me love it that much more!

4) MAC's Sketch - must I say more? So many people love this shadow and it's because it looks so pretty in the crease! It's a nice color to have to just give your look something special. Browns move over, there's an awesome color in crease town!

5) Lancome's Guest List - I really like it in the crease - very very pretty! I also have a problem of this not lasting too long on my lids but pigmentation and blendibility is really great. Another shade that makes the eye look more unique.

6 & 8) L'Oreal's Sculpted - #6 is a darker shade - people compare this to MAC's Beauty Marked. It's really pretty because it has these glitter in it. The only thing that I wish is that it would be a bit softer and easier to blend. #8 is more pink than purple but also a nice girly color to have around.

7) Revlon Quad in Nude Element - this is a taupey color - something that I would totally wear all over the lids. However, this color is so pretty in the crease too. It gives a nice, soft, natural contour.


That's pretty much what I have for you guys! Sorry I've been MIA (I finally know what that means BTW! SAD huh!) - I blame it on school :D

But like I said before, I haven't really bought much make up b/c of a major tight budget! But my mom actually bought me a mascara the other day - L'Oreal's Bare Natural! Very cool!! Thanks MOM!!

Thanks for reading!!!

Autumn Is Awesome

So I'm sitting in my room with a sweater on right now - that's pretty awesome. I can actually walk my dog in the middle of the day now... double awesome!

But anyways, I did this look a few months ago - just kinda playing around with the colors that I have and thought this would be an AWESOME look for fall!

Now, normally for school, I don't do something like this. For school, one color on the lid is good enough. But I think this could be a great going out look or a date or something - YA KNOW!

Lids: WnW Trio in Mojave Mauves - lightest shade
Crease: Smashbox's Trio in Photoshoot - the shimmery color
Outer Corner: MAC's sketch
Liner: WnW black gel liner
Mascara: Max Factor 2000 Calories

Lips: Victoria's Secret Very Sexy lipstick in Sweet Nothing

I don't know if you can notice but at the time, I had the worse acne problem. New pimples would just pop up every day - on my forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. I'm so relieved that it's all gone now and luckily without any scarring. I think the problem might've started with my new skin care routines. I'm still using that routine but I think it's because my skin is used to it now.

WEIRD huh!


I also just wanna talk about the poll that I had put up for the last 2 weeks:
What accessories do you think make your man seem extra hot?
58% say it's the facial hair!!
25% say it's the nice hair
16% say it's the nice scent/cologne

Good to know huh! So any boys reading... take a note of this. I totally agree with this poll too - I think those are my top three.

No one thought a tie or glasses make guys cute. I guess it depends on your taste... some guys look a lot smarter w/ glasses!!


That's all I'm gonna bother you guys with... for now! Stay tune for more girly polls!

Girl Confessions Tag

I just want to apologize for not posting lately. I don't really have any beauty related things to talk about at the moment. Can you guys believe it - I didn't spend ANY money on cosmetics this month. I thought about buying some WnW stuff while they were 50% off at Walgreens but when I got there, I just didn't feel like buying anything.

I think it's because I don't have any money to spare anyways. And whatever money I have, I like to take it and hang out with my friends - and they aren't really the shopping for make-up types.

Anyways, usually when I have nothing beauty-related to post about, I like to post a tag. This one is gonna be a long one but feel free to do it too! And let me know about it as well so I read your answers too. This is called the "Girl Confessions Tag" that I got from Beauty Broadcast by emilynoel83. Such an awesome beauty guru!

Okay, without further ado:

1. What color is you hair?: Black - dark brown (because of natural highlights)

2. Drama?: NO DRAMA! I hate drama - although sometimes when I get bored I do wish that there was so good drama around.

3. Are you a girly girl?: Yes and no - I didn't get into make up til I was in college and my clothes are far from being "fashionable". However, I do hate bugs and I adore all things that are tiny and cute. And I'm not very good at sports!

4. Who was the last person you hugged?: My friend Tina.

5. Small or large purses?: Not too big - like medium size. But I like to travel light so I just stick with the wristlet if I go out.

8. What would you do if someone smacked your butt?: I'd be like "WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?".
