St. Paddy's Day Eye Look 2013 plus Shirt of the Day

Hi again! So this look is about a year late! Oh well, better late than never, right? Take a look at what I had on my eyes last St. Paddy's.





Bonus shot! Last one was the shirt I wore! It says "Buy me a car bomb". Damn I love car bombs! I love Guinness! I'm super Irish! Haha I can't wait for this year's St. Paddy's! Catch you on the flip side!

Shimmery and Smoky Olive Eye Look

Heyoooo again! This look was probably done with Bare Minerals again, but I can't remember the name. Again, if you want to know what it is, I can find out. But otherwise I love this look! Check it out!




Ohhh yeah I love a good smoky eye! I probably do a smoky eye most days of the week. How about you? Smoky eyes the look of choice? I know it is for me. See you soon!

Shimmery Pale Blue Eye Look

And here I am again! Really banging these out, yamean? Now for the previous looks, I don't know what I used for the products. I mean, I probably have it written down somewhere, and if someone out there really wants to know what I used, I can find out for you. For this look however, I know for a fact that the shimmery blue color is from Bare Minerals and it's called April. It was part of a limited edition kit from like two years ago, so you'll probably have trouble finding it if you really like it. But anyway, here's the look.




There is the look! I like this look, the blue is super pretty and surprisingly wearable. See you guys soon!

Shimmery Pink Eye Look

Hey again! I'm just gonna be rolling these out; so sorry for the lack of chit-chat. This look was actually from last year hehe, sorry, but it was most likely a Valentine's Day look, so there you go!




Ooooh I love me some pink! Anyone else like to wear pink eyeshadow? Love ya guys!

Matte Olive and Brown Eye Look

Hey look, it's me again! It's also Monday, which apparently has become my reoccurring day off from work, so expect posts on Mondays (hopefully). Today I have a matte olive and some shimmery brown on the eyes. Check it out.



Sorry about no face look, I dunno what happened to it. Stay tuned, I have more on the way. Love ya!


Matte Purple and Beige Eye Look

Hey hey, guess who's lame and has two thumbs?! *Points to self* THIS GUY! In other words, I have been absent for a while. This keeps happening to me. I don't know what to say. Well, not to make excuses, but part of it was probably because I didn't have a computer for a while, so that's a thing. The other part of me gets really tired to blogging, because that means having to edit pictures which takes up a lot of time so while I do enjoy writing this blog, a tiny bit of me is a jerk and gets bored. So please, forgive me. This being said, I will most likely start posting more makeup looks rather than nail looks. Ever since starting work at Sephora, a huge resurgence of love for makeup has come over me and I have been playing with makeup more and going all out with makeup again. This is probably also due to the fact that I have become one of those people glued to the computer screen watching video after video on YouTube of my favorite makeup gurus, while secretly harboring a desire to set up a camera and start making my own videos. Maybe in due time. But first, here's a matte purple eyeshadow look for you to check out. :)




Again, sorry for being a jerk, but hopefully I can keep this up! Send me good vibes, and I'll keep sending out makeup looks! Love ya.

Birthstone Series: March Bloodstone feat. Sinful Last Chance and Nubar 2010

Hello again! If you weren't aware, March has two acceptable birthstones, and bloodstone is the other one. It's a pretty cool-looking stone, and the reason it's called bloodstone is exactly what you're thinking - because it looks like blood. Nice! In other news, the other thing that's been preoccupying my mind lately is I'm trying to plan a trip to Disneyland! It's been a few years since I've went, the last time being an utter disaster (don't go with 10 people when you're right out of high school...) and although we are still going to be a large group again (8 people) I think this time will be a bit more manageable. I'm pretty much single-handedly planning this trip because I'm very detail-oriented and want everything to be as perfect as possible. Hopefully all goes well without too many problems. Anyways! Here is what a bloodstone looks like if you're not familiar.

I knew right away what I was going to do for this manicure, and I think it turned out perfectly.

I started out with Sinful Last Chance. I love this color but it stains like a mofo!!!!! AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT! At least it matches the dark green quartz of the stone. This was two or three coats, don't remember.

Okay, now here comes a slew of pictures!

I give you Nubar 2010! In real life, you can see the red flash a lot more, making this combo match the bloodstone pretty well. I wanted to leave this manicure on longer, but I smudged it and had to remove it. But either way, this manicure kicks ass! I lurve it!

What do you think of this? Do you like flakies? I want to get more colors, like the Zoya ones!

Thanks for stopping by!
