Updates and new things to expect...

Hello Bellas,

How was your night? I went to sleep late again…I think my boyfriend is a bad influence on me because he stays up sooo late. He just tells me that I should go to sleep because I can't hang with the big dawgs or something or other, lol. I’m supposed to be at work by 8:45 (which is more like 9:05-9:15) but go to sleep at 1:30am and always feel it the next day...that’s not good :(

Anywho, after reading Vanessa, Mrs. Lynne and everybody’s pages about all their drug store hauls I was really wishing there was a Walgreens or Duane Reade near me so I could finally get my hands on the HIP paints. Alas, my local CVS does not carry them. Also, the Milani blush that’s a dupe for NARS is definitely on my list.

I think I might go to Wal-mart during lunch today and pick up more work snacks and check out the cosmetics aisle ;)

Last night I did a really quick makeup look to one of my sorority events. I wore one of my neglected Mattene lipsticks in “All Grown Up”. I try to revisit some of my older products to make sure I at least use all of them a few times. I mean if we shell out so much cash on these items we've got to get our money's worth, right girls?

Just like friendship, you may meet new friends, but you can’t forget the faithful ones that have stuck by you through the years...well the same goes with makeup (good methaphor eh?). This lipstick is described as a deep chocolate brown and honestly, I’m not sure I can pull it off. I got it mainly because it was different and I didn’t have too many dark colors at the time. It shows up so dark that I need to use something underneath because it settles into the lines of my lip, giving me unsightly dark lines on my smackers-you know, the Angelina Jolie affliction?
Here's a pic from the MAC website:

I paired it with nothing else except my eyes lined top and bottom with Graphblack Technakohl liner. It was definitely a darker, more mature look...not really my typical bright eyes but I was happy that I expanded my makeup boundaries, lol. Sometimes you need to try different things! Sorry but I didn’t take a pic but you get a visual image right?

So this Thursday I’m planning on recreating the smokey pink eye and curly hair for a Valentines Day look. I’m doing it Thursday evening because that’s date night for my BF. I might of mentioned htis before, but we switch off each week picking a new restaurant neither of us has been to. It’s my week...usually we pick some form of ethnic food-any suggestions?

Like I mentioned before, I’m putting out less videos so I can have a few nights off each week. Last night I finished edited my Shiseido Mascara Base Review. I also got the go ahead/music approval from the BF on the “Hot Hepcat” look (he's the one who usually gives me my background music inspiration) as well as what I call my “Blue Bling Bling” look. Unfortunately Windows Media Maker is tempermental and lost all of my edited music clips I inserted in my Blue Bling Bling video. I was so mad that I took it out on the boyfriend :( If you’re reading this babe, I’m sorry! I went to bed all frustrated but I think in my random tossing and turning I looked over my shoulder and could’ve sworn I saw him redoing the music on my video for me. Gotta love him!

Anyhow, with those vids I should have enough material for you tube posting for the next week or two.

Meanwhile, here’s my “To do list” of viewer requests, tutorials, videos and looks:
• Warmed MSF as eyeshadow
• Burnt orange look
• Collection video
• Valentines Day look
• Curly hair tutorial
• Still have to do my funky eyelashes and drag queen look but those take a little more practice...

Don't forget to watch American Idol tonight! Well back to work so I can make money to pay off my makeup, he he. Ciao bellas!
