Color, Color, Color ...Inspirational Photos

Hi Girls and Guys! I am so lucky to have so many amazing friends and people who read my blog posts. :) Keep telling me what you love, and I will keep writing as often as possible. If you didn't see, yesterday, I posted an interview I did with makeup artist Jemma Kidd! http://lovelo.wordpress.com/2011/05/27/my-interview-questions-for-makeup-artist-jemma-kidd/ 

This is unrelated to my post yesterday, but I wanted to show you some photos I found that make me want to wear color all the time! Here are some inspirational "color" photos .

These images just SCREAM Spring and Summer...they put me in the mood for COLOR! :)

Love,

Mascaras You Need to Try! My 3 Favorites..

Hey Guys! It seems as if everyone is always searching for the latest and greatest mascara. Most women are looking for one that separates their lashes, gives them lots of volume and doesn't flake or smudge.

After they discontinued my favorite drugstore mascara EVER (Maybelline Lash Expansion) I was devastated. When you find one you like it's tough to lose it. :( But, as a mascara junkie,  I have tried and tested probably over a hundred mascaras..and these three are my current favorites. P.S if anyone every finds the Maybelline Lash Expansion Mascara...tell me! I need to find it.

LASHGASM  Mascara by TOO FACED Cosmetics. ( http://www.toofaced.com/ )

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

False Lash Mascara by MAC (http://www.maccosmetics.com/)

Youngblood Mascara in Blackout (http://www.ybskin.com/index.php)

What makes a good mascara in my opinion?

  • Non smudging, Non Flaking
  • NOT WATERPROOF but Water Resistant (It's a pain to try to get off waterproof mascara)
  • BLACK BLACKITY BLACKEST BLACK you can get
  • A wand that is straight across not curved or round
  • A wet formula but not goopy and clumpy (I want visible signs that mascara is on the brush but not to the point that I can't see the brush bristles)

That's about it! I hope you enjoyed reading my top 3 mascaras (this is of the moment). All three of these have the qualities I like in a mascara above.

Happy Shopping! ;)

MAC Eyeshadow: My Top 10 Picks for Medium Skin~Series

Hey Everyone!! I hope you are all having a good week. Today is part 3 and I will be telling you my favorite MAC eye shadows for Medium skin tones.

First, I must boast about a product I am LOVING. It is Bobbi Brown's Corrector. Am I the last person on the planet to try this?? Seriously, why did I not know this stuff existed. It has super powers. No, not really. But it's amazing on dark circles. You still need  to use concealer after using this product but it takes out any dark shadow under the eye. Here is a link to see the product on the BB Website: http://www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com/templates/products/spp/index.tmpl?CATEGORY_ID=CATEGORY22762&PRODUCT_ID=PROD6398

Now, for my top 10 MAC shadows for medium skin tones.

  • Woodwinked- a bonzey copper penny shade
  • Sable- a deep shimmery plum/brown
  • Mulch- a sparkly dark rich brown
  • Antiqued- a shimmery brown/red
  • Sumptuous Olive- a shimmery green olive
  • Amber Lights- a shimmery  bright copper/orange
  • Bronze-  a shimmery bronze
  • Shadowy Lady- a deep matte purple
  • Expensive Pink- a shimmery pinkish orange
  • Dazzlelight- a shimmery light yellow/white
