Getting Caught up

Sometimes life likes to play unfair games. This has been the case with me. Maybe warranted, maybe not. But it been the reason for my absence nonetheless.

During my time off though, I have not stopped devoting my love to my vain hobby of makeup. I’m always searching for the next best foundation, or bronzer, or blush. Right now, I’m anxiously searching for a great setting spray.. Please don’t say MAC lol. I’m not sure why my makeup transfers to shirts, napkins, or other unwanted places. I don’t cake my makeup on, and I certainly set it with a powder.. but I guess it’s not enough. As always, I’m open to suggestions :)

I’ve gotten the urge to pick this blog back up becasue of a dear friend. She’s giving me that push to continue eventhough I have no idea what to write about! I’ve been so busy trying to not fail my classes, I’ve really dropped out of everything else I’ve been doing. Of course, lately it just seems like I’ve had to deal with the world on my own, so I guess that leaves little room for writing. I’m currently trying to find inspiration at my new weekend job. I have to say, it’s really nice to be in a law firm setting again. I’ve been working from home and by myself for so long, you kind of forget how to interact with people lol. Hopefully, that weird feeling will pass soon. This is nice change of pace nonetheless. Also, having a handsome attorney as your boss isn’t that bad either :)

I saw the new Physician’s Formula Argan Oil makeup, and I’m very curious to try it. It is a little higher on the drug store makeup pricing, but I think it might be worth it. Anyone that’s read more than one post on this blog knows I like to focus on affordable, but still fabulous makeup products over more luxury brands. If anyone has tried any of FF’s argan oil line, I’d love to hear thoughts about it. I’ll be picking up some things myself soon, so I’ll have something more exciting to talk about than how boring my life is lol :D

a moment of vanity

So I have a new scarf and all these new headbands that I decided to pile on my head LOL also spent my entire lunch hour playing with eyeshadows :) I’m hungry :( but I think I’m getting a little better at it lol!!
Of course, this is nothing fancy what I did, but to me it is a bug deal because I just am NOT good at using eye shadow. Since I was able to wear makeup, I have never been good with it lol I always ended up looking like I got punched in the face and that is def not a good look at all.. ever.. unless your look is “battered woman” then fine.. but that’s not the look I want lol!!
I’ll keep trying to do my best to implement eye shadow into my everyday routine, but I took an hour today just to do eyeshadow.. that’s a bit much. I seriously need to not spend an hour on my face lol.

Day 23: “Eyeshadow”

These are by Hard Candy and I’m surprised that they work as well as they do. Eyeshadow is not something I’m very good at.. in fact, I heavily suck at it, but I’ve made the decision to start incorporating it into my routine since I do want to learn, so I had decided to invest in something inexpensive that I can learn with. So I bought the purple cased one first. I was so surprised at how nice the colors are, so I went back to the store and bought the other 2 palates so I can have more colors to play with lol. I’m starting small, nothing crazy, but I will get this down lol
So for someone who never gets eyeshadow, this is something cheap and great to start with! When I get better, I’ll be maybe investing in something with more variety, but for now, this has been more than perfect.

 

Has anyone ever tried these eyeshadows?
Any tips on eyeshadow I should know about?
I would love to hear it all lol :)

Day 19: “Blush” (Late)

I’m not a huge fan of blush. I just don’t like it.

But sometimes my face looks just too plain and I am drawn to add some color. I’m sure it’s a struggle we’re all too familiar with..
So when I do need to not look so vampyric, I go with a nice blush from “Milani”

Milani-Baked-Blush-Berry-Armore

 

A simple blush. It gives a nice light pink color to the cheeks which is nice. Sometimes you do need a slight hint of color in there. and it’s not an overwhelming type of color. It’s pretty. It wear ever so nicely and milani isn’t expensive either which is ideal for me since I don’t really want to spent a lot on something I use every once in a while.. a long, long while lol
