Happy Fourth of July!!!


I wanted to get a quick word in with y'all before the 4th of July festivities take place. I hope y'all have a great time! Check out some fireworks & have a blast! And please be responsible if you decide to drink :) Just friendly, sisterly advice :)

My plans for the weekend is to chill at the pool, eat a bunch of grub, be with my Mikie (yes we are attached to the hip, that's the way we want it :D), and watch some fireworks.

First, I would like to thank the ladies who bought stuff from my sale. I do appreciate it, and I hope y'all enjoy the products!

I have a couple videos that I uploaded recently. One is a haircare update and the other is a video over the haul in my last post.

And of course I had to include a couple FOTDs....

The first is a smokey, brown look that was inspired by Mistella. Like I said a few times, I'm lacking inspiration to do tutorials, so I looked back at things I did in 2007 and at the people who inspired me most when I started being interested in makeup. One of my biggest inspirations has been Mistella. She is amazingly beautiful and has such great skill. She's a pro MUA in Hollywood... gosh that would be my dream job! Anywho, this look was inspired by her.

The first two eye pictures were taken at around 9AM.

This picture was taken at 4PM. The Smashbox Lid Primer works AMAZING. I would have to say it is just as good as UDPP, but with a better applicator.

And here is the look I wore today to work. I was SUPER happy yesterday because my Giorgio Armani foundation came in... woohooo! LOVES IT! I ADORE it... Giorgio Armani is my fave brand for foundation. It just makes my skin look super flawless and glowing without feeling heavy. It is pretty pricey ($58), but it is WORTH it. I had to buy some more foundation because I am a lot more tan than I used to be. However, I didn't get any powder because I honestly didn't feel it made that big of a difference from my MAC powder. But the foundation is a must.

Also, I got a package from DSK Steph. Needless to say, I was SUPER excited! I love sparkly things, so when I saw her jewelry, my jaw dropped. All of her jewelry are super cute and classy. I fell in love with the yellow Swarovski heart. She was kind enough to make me a bracelet with it... lovesss it! And she also sent me some super cute earrings & a phone charm. I'm going to do a more complete video on it soon, I just had to show what she sent me though! I will definitely be ordering more very soon!

I loved the cute sticker!

Of course I had to cam-hoe a little with the bracelet on.. LOVEEE! I can't get enough of it hehe...

I thought this picture was pretty cool. I didn't edit it or anything. The lighting in my car made me look super pale... almost vampirey? Mmmmmm.... Edward....

Well, I hope y'all have a great weekend! I will post another entry with more pics from the upcoming weekend later. So be safe and have fun!
