Boy, oh boy, I've missed blogging! Working full time (and especially over nights) is messing with my schedule! I've been moving out of the apartment on my days off, too! Most of my clothes are packed away, so I'll try to blog more but I know it won't be as frequent, Thanks!

Congratulations, Ashley!

Makeup Monday: Sunsets from Mary Kay

Miss Mary Kay

A few days ago, I received some samples of Mary Kay products, from the lovely Dawn Cich. I was more than excited to give them a try! I found that as strange as it seems, these colors all go very well together (I think so, anyway). Okay so I LOVE this makeup! I actually really love how the color stays all day! The lipstick is a bit dark, but I like to be bold anyway. The one truth about the lipstick, is that it doesn't last very long itself. I love the color, and I'm more than glad it fades evenly so I don't look like a clown, but the extent of it's color last probably 2 hours. I have no problem reapplying it in public, and in fact, I think it looks even better the second time! ;) Personally, I don't really look all that great when wearing red or pink tinted blush; I'm so pale that the subtle red spots that are already on my face are just accentuated more with the wrong blush color. So when I received this copper blush, I was ecstatic! I absolutely love the way a copper blush looks against my skin and makes me look like I'm actually living instead of a pale ghost or just a red spotted mess. As for the eyeshadow, I have to say I think I love it about as much as I love Urban Decay eye makeup, seriously. It lasts very long, the color is vibrant and noticable (but not obnoxious), and it blends together very nice! When I blended the "Sienna" and the "Iris" colors, it almost gave the impression of a sunset, soft and beautiful colors blending perfectly together. I know that may sound corny, but I was actually super surprised at how much I actually love Mary Kay now! 

As for Dawn, she has been wonderful in assisting me, and great at suggesting my options and all the possibilities there are with this makeup. I plan on purchasing a bit more from Mary Kay in the near future! If you would like to have Dawn as  your beauty consultant, please, please order through her website at

She is a wonderful woman who is looking to help those discover a whole new world of beauty! Thanks, Dawn!

Tuesday Tips: First Place for your Face!

For a while, I struggled with the difference between foundations brushes, powder brushes, concealer brushes, ect. But I'm an expert now, and I'm here to help tell you the difference in brushes!
Stay tuned for some cute pictures on what is what.

1. Cream Foundation.
You might be applying the wrong foundations with sponges, your hands, ect. I was doing this for a while until I discovered the true uses for brushes. Some examples of Cream Foundations are Sephora Cover FX.
2. Blending Brush.
Blending brushes/smoothing sponges allow the makeup to blend into your face and each other if you're using multiple products on your face.

3. Liquid Foundation.
An example of liquid foundation is Avon's ideal shade liquid foundation.

4. Mineral Foundation.
An example of Mineral Foundation in bareMinerals original mineral foundation.
5. Concealer.
Concealer is used to hide blemishes, dark spots, and discoloration. The brushis small, because it's only supposed to be used for small areas, not the whole face. An example of concealer is Clinique Advanced concealer.

6. Powder.
Compacts of powder are good to finish off any last minute cover-ups. An example of makeup powder is Lancome Dual Finish Versatile Powder

Sorry I can't source a ton of stuff! All my clothes are packed away in totes and boxes, and in all honesty,I don't want to unpack them just to move them to another apartment in another 2 months, bahah! We'll see how long that laziness lasts. I have this same hat in forest green that I've been dying to get a chance to wear! The colors don't scream summer, so I have to wait on the green hat, haha!
