FOTD 10/4/2010

Hello!!! I'm on my way to work and decided to take some photos of my face. I'm always in a rush in the morning but I always try to do my makeup for work. Again, my camera is not picking up the colors well but in person its beautiful. This is my favorite makeup look. I love the green/blue shades.

MAC Venomous Villians Collection Haul and Review

I have been waiting for this collection for a while. Of course you know I love all things MAC make-up so this collection was no exception. I love Disney - not necessarily the villians, but I'll take the good with the bad. In my opinion this collection was full of great finds. I wanted to get more, but my funds wouldn't let me. I've got a family to take care of people! LOL.

This collection had so many wonderful options. I purchased the MAC Mineralized Eye Shadows in My Dark Magic and She Who Dares from the Maleficent part of the collection. Both wonderful selections. Awesome colors. I tried a look with My Dark Magic.. the colors are very dark. It has a pink side and purple side...with many colors but some ingraining of black. I would use this in my crease to create a smoky eye...not all over the lid. Its too dark for me. It has lots of glitter, which I didn't realize this from looking at photos and swatches. But still a very beautiful eye shadow. I've swatched She Who Dares but haven't yet had an opportunity to incorporate it into a look. I can't wait to try though. Some very nice colors in this palatte as well. It has a green side and blue side. Still chunky glitter with some black ingraining. I wanted to try these because it reminded me of the shadows from the MAC Style black collection. Which I missed out on those shadows. So I just had to get these. I can tell I'm going to love them both.

FOTD - 10/3/10

Hey everyone!!!! I'm new to blogging but I've always loved makeup. I've been doing my make-up for years!!! I'm always trying new techniques and applications. So I love reading blogs. Watching tutorials, reading books. Anything to perfect my make-up skills.

This is my face of the day. I need to get a better camera, but this will have to do for now. I love all types of make-up but I primarily use MAC, Urban Decay, NARS, and MUFE. I just purchased some of the new items from the MAC Venomous Villians Collection and I incorporated some of them in this look.

MAC Sketch Eyeshadow - outer corner and outer crease
MAC Cranberry Eyeshadow - lid
MAC Melon pigment - inner lid
MAC Bronze - outer crease
MAC Texture - inner crease
MAC Jardin Aires pigment - highlight
MAC Fascinating Eye Kohl - inner corner of eye
Loreal Hip Cream Liner Black
MAC Plush lash mascara

MAC Ebony Eye liner - outer edge of brow
MAC Embark Eyeshadow - inner brow

Cargo Foundation - Can't see color anymore - I probably won't repurchase
MAC Magically Cool liquid powder - Cajun - to set foundation
MAC Sweet as Cocoa Blush

MAC Hold the Pose lipstick

I got lots of compliments on this. My camera really doesn't pick up the colors well.
