Stephanee's Smokey Eyes

Hi Bellas,

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? It passed so fast to me. It's super cold here in Atlanta, especially for the south. Grrrrr it's 20 degrees and we don't even get any snow to make it fun! This weekend was crazy. One of my good friends' moms house burned down this weekend unexpectantly. The whole house is done...clothes, furniture, pictures and presents and all. It couldn't have come at the worse time. Fortunately everyone was safe and uninjured.

We spent the weekend coming together to try and gather supplies, toiletries, anything to help them get through this. When the unexpected like this happens, it makes you truly thankful for what you do have. Please keep my friend and her family in your prayers.

Meanwhile, it's getting closer and closer to Christmas. I'm excited to go home and spend time with my family. I'll be leaving Wednesday morning so you probably won't see a post in a few days with my parents' crazy dial up internet connection, lol.

In the meantime, I wanted to show you a picture of one of the models I worked with in the past. We went for a sexy smokey eye with a frosty lip. I actually used cream color base on her lips to give it the frosty feel.

Today I'm uploading a new video on Yaby of my new favs! Stay tuned for that! Moving forward, I'll be doing a few changes to my videos to try to standardize and improve them. I'll also be doing videos every Monday and Wednesday on a regular basis.

Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

Hey Ren.
I don't leave comments very often.
I will definitely pray for the family who suffered the loss of their home. I am thankful no one was hurt.
I wanted to take this time to thank you for your great blog. I really appreciate you taking the time out to share your expertise with all of us.
I made a little video on YouTube giving a shout out to my fave makeup blogs. Please take a look at:
Thanks again. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
