Yay it's Friday! This week went by really fast, woo hoo! Did you guys peep the holiday palettes and brush sets yesterday? I didn't! I decided to exert some self control. To be honest, nothing in the holiday collection is making me pee in my pants with excitement, so I wanted to hold off until my makeup budget refreshes next week. If by that time I still want something despite the newness wearing off, I'll go get it. Talk about exerting self control right? The deluge of collections has put a dent in my wallet that I need to recover from. I also have a million videos I need to post so my self-restraint cuts out another video to film..which is good for me!
Last night, I stayed up to 3:30am! It's my boyfriend's big homecoming weekend (he went to Morehouse) so all his homies are in town to celebrate. He already graduated but this is a yearly reunion that they too. Of course I'm not invited, lol, so instead I stayed up playing with makeup! I'm posting a new Halloween makeup look tomorrow which has proved to be quite challenging! Stay tuned for the video :)
Anywho, back to the original entry!Like many, I missed out on the Manish Arora collection because it sold out so quickly! For some reason I thought it was coming to stores, but I was clearly confused. It's actually a good thing though, becuase I got to save some cash! I decided to recreate the look using products I already had...in reality, the packaging is what sold me on this collection. A lot of the colors are permanent line or very dupeable.
Here's my recreated look. You know blues and greens are my fav!
