Tuesday Blues ~ Makeup Monday v3

By "blues" I don't mean anything bummer-tastic. My hot desert sun has taken the day off and a whole sky full of clouds have taken over. Not that I mind too much- a break from 98* weather is fine by me.

The pretty tones of the sky today inspired me to do another tutorial- blue and silver lined eyes:


With a slanted edge eyeliner brush, line the outer half of the upper lash line with a dark navy blue, starting fairly thick and then making it thinner as you go across. Then lightly lined the outer third of the lower lash line.

With a different brush, line the inside half of the upper lash line and the rest of your bottom lash line with a bright silver. Make sure to do your inner corner to give the appearance of brighter and bigger eyes.

For a slightly more dramatic effect, add a brown eyeliner to the outer third of your upper lash line. Add mascara and waalah!


If you don't have a slanted edge eyeliner brush, I highly recommend getting one. It creats a crisp, straight line with no fuss. This brush is really the only one I could give a hoot about.

I got mine in a little kit of multiple brushes at Fred Meyer for $10. You can also get them at Walgreen and/or Rite-Aid for about the same price. Sephora also has some nice ones starting at $8.

Do you have a favorite brush or makeup accessory like that?

Hope everyone is enjoying their Tuesday!

Fabulous Friday v1 ~ Makeup Monday v2

Today is nothing short of fabulous.

Waking up happy is such a glorious feeling! But that's what happens when I wake up in Aaron's arms. :3 I felt rested, ready to start fresh, and eager to take on today.

Despite the fact that today's forecast calls for a high of 90*, I wanted to wear my boots and a cute cardi. I was determined. Besides... we keep the store at a crisp temp so I need a sweater when I'm here anyways.

sweater - Target
top - Forever 21
extra long tank - Ebay
necklace - Fred Meyer
shorts - Fred Meyer
boots - Cutesy Shoes


Such a roll was had this morning, I even took pictures for an eyeshadow tutorial:


For this look, I put a light pink (A) across my lids, in the corner creases put a fairly dark smoky gray (B), and then used a sparkly silver (C) to blend to the colors together. Lined my eyes with a dark gray pencil, and added mascara.

This took me three minutes and I was out the door. Time has been flying by so quickly, who wants to spend time on tedious make up? I sure don't.

Hope everyone else is having a wonderful day! Do you have any fun plans for this weekend?

Comments are being lame- again

//EDIT #2// Alright, so it looks like all browsers but Firefox are good with comments. Looking into how to fix it.

//EDIT// Took out a bunch of code I didn't like. . . Hoping that did the trick. x^^x

I LOVE this layout, and I am not ready to give up on it just yet. Today I am going to try and recode this bad boy. I think I can do it.

The template is backed up just in case I mess things up.

Fingers crossed! x^-^x

Silly RINOA Kitty Cat!

I have been snapping a bunch of pictures of my cat, Rinoa, lately and thought I would share them.

She get embarrassed easily, likes to be fawned over from a far, most of the time doesn't like to snuggle, loves all my guy friends (to the point that she ignores me when we have friends over), but after everyone's gone she'll lay down against my legs to let me know she loves me.

She is my official overseer of all things crafty- she like to sit/lay down someplace where she has a good vantage point to watch me.

She's good sport with my goofy playing and snuggling with her.

She turns nine next month.

My friends say she has a "kit-ler stache" but let's me honest, it's only half. xD









Neapolitan Eyeshadow ~ Makeup Monday v1

This is a look I have been messing around with for a while. This morning I was able to achieve the exact look I was going for, so I thought of making a quick tutorial for it.

It is a subtle look and very wearable to work, school, and everywhere in between.


After priming my lids, I added a generous amount of matte white A onto the inside 3/4th of my eyelids. Then I took the Show off pink and put in on the outside 1/4th of my eyelids, and blended it towards the inside slightly. You may want to add a second layer of pink (or third layer, in my case), depending on how shear it is.

Next add the Jesse's Girl shimmery white over the matte white and blend it into the pink, erasing any harsh edges.

For eyeliner I like to start on the outside and work my way inside, starting with a thick line and getting thinner as I go. Once that's done take a thin brush and go over the eyeliner with B. Add B to the bottom half of your lash line.

If there's any extra shadow on the brush, work it into the crease above your eyelid for a little definition and depth to the pink.

Add mascara. I like to to add mascara on the outside half of my upper lashes and outside third(-ish) to my lower lashes.

With that, you're done!


What do you think? Let me know your thoughts!

Code Fixes!

Hey everyone! So today thanks to the help of Jenessa and Kitty I was able to get comments working and the Follow button working!

I would be tickled pink to see some "hello's!" in my comment box! *^__^*
