How are my lovely ladies? Sorry for being MIA...it's been a bit hectic in my neck of the woods. I'm trying to maintain a balance with everything going on and I apologize for neglecting my blogging duties :) Fortunately I've had time to make some new videos and upload them to you tube. It's amazing how people are so supportive out there...it really inspires me to continue.
So what did yall get into this weekend? I had Monday off for MLK and I had a great weekend of sleeping in and just relaxing. I really needed it too...the last few weeks have been exhausting! I had time to do laundry, clean my makeup brushes, label some of my eyeshadow palettes, edit videos...and all at my leisure. My boyfriend was gone for the weekend visiting his sister in the hospital, so it was a bit hard because I missed him so much, but distance does make the heart grow fonder (hopefully I said that saying right!) Plus, I had MAC to keep me company, he he.
Usually I just film myself doing my makeup before I go out somewhere...so it's been easy getting material for my videos. The latest ones are my Rainbow Eyes and Hollywood Retro Glam look.
The first video I called Crazy Daisies. I wore this look after being inspired by the flowers my BF got me for our anniversary last Monday. He got me crazy colored daises...think back to Lisa Frank days :) They were perfect...after I saw them I immediately knew I wanted to copy the look and do a Florescent rainbow eye. It turned out pretty well...it was my first real attempt at doing a rainbow eye...I wore this to my crab leg dinner that yall saw in the previous post.
Here's What I Used (All MAC unless otherwise stated):
-Bio Green e/s (pro color)
-Bright Sunshine e/s (pro color)
-Ardell lashes with Duo lash adhesive

My next video came from a viewer request. I don't think I ever mentioned this before but when I was in high school I was obsessed with the 50's and 60's. From music to movies to dress...I was crazy about it! I think I was in love with the whole sock hop, sweethearts romance...oh how I wished I could share a milkshake with my honey at the soda foundation and wear his letter jacket while dancing to the Supremes :) Sorry i'm a dork! LOL anyways, that was just me. Realistically if I lived during that era I would probably be someone's maid or love slave! Still, the women were so glamorous back then...think Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe-classic beauties. I love the look of a red lip with nicely lined eyes. And it's so easy! So here's my retro Hollywood glam look, hope you guys enjoy! By the way, shout out to Mrs. Lynne! She did a fabulous red lip hollywood glam look that totally inspired me, she's amazing..definitely a MILF, he he.
