Sorority Show Makeup - Platinum Eyes and Diva Lips!

Hi Bellas,

Happy Monday!  Last week was super busy for me and today i'm going to show you why.  In college, along with 11 other ladies, I helped to establish a chapter of my sorority at my University.  Ten years later, i'm still involved.  After a few years of having no presence on campus, 8 lovely ladies helped to reestablish the chapter at my alma mater, and this called for a celebration!  Over the last week, we spent several long nights into the early morning practicing for their coming out show and you know I had to do a special makeover for the ladies.  Check it out!

MAC Contour Blushes: Blunt vs Harmony

Hi Bellas,

Contouring is an integral part of my makeup routine.  This involves shading your face with a darker powder, on areas where shadows naturally occur.  The result is a slimmed face, heightened cheekbones and defined features.  I've been a die-hard fan of MAC Blunt Blush to contour for a long time.  However, MAC Harmony blush is another popular contouring blush option.  I acquired both and decided to do a compare and contrast for those of you from medium to tan to dark skintones that are interested in these products.  Check it out!
