A Steamy and Impassioned Affair + Video Update

So great news y'all! As you know, I've been working for a golf course as a bev cart girl. Its a fun and easy job. I wanted to have a fun job while I'm in college before I start the whole corporate world in a year or so. Anyways, I really dislike hot weather, so being outside for 8 - 10 hours a day kinda sucks... lol. But yesterday my boss talked to me & told me she was looking for an accountant & offered me the job! WOOT! I'm excited. Because I will still be able to have fun at the golf course but do accounting.... fun fun lol.

Anywhoodles.....

Inspired by Fergie Tutorial

EDIT 06/17/09: Uploaded the video! Hope y'all like it :)

First off, I have the most AMAZING boyfriend EVER!!!! Why you ask? Besides the fact that he is DEAD SEXY (hehe), he is so sweet and considerate. As I wrote in my last post, my poor camera died on me. He knows how much I've been wanting to get back into making tutorials and blogging, so he surprised me over the weekend by buying me a NEW CAMERA!



And not just a new camera, a better camera than I had before. He bought me a Sony T-90 camera. Its a LOT more complex than my old camera, but the pictures and videos come out clearer.

So since I have a brand, spanking new camera, I had to do something with it! But I needed inspiration. As I was checking out the MAC website (which I haven't looked at in forever and a half), I saw Fergie's promo ad for the Viva Glam VI collection. She looks AMAZING & made me want to recreate her look.



Here is my take on her look and the tutorial after the jump:




FACE
MAC Strobe Lotion
MAC Loose Mineral Foundation – Medium Dark
MAC Studio Finish Concealer – NC 35

EYES
MAC Porcelain/ Browning Brow Shader – fill in brows and highlight
MAC Nice Vice Paint Pot
MAC Beautiful Iris e/s – all over lid (239 brush)
MAC Fertile e/s – outer corner and crease (239 brush)
MAC Parfait Amour e/s – crease and lower lashline (217 brush)
MAC Mancatcher e/s – inner corners (239 brush)
MAC Rapidblack Penultimate Eye Liner – upper lashline
MAC Graphblack Technakohl Liner – waterline
Shiseido Mascara Base
Shiseido Distinguish Mascara

CHEEKS
MAC Accentuate/ Sculpt Sculpting Powder – contour (109 brush)
MAC Warm Soul Mineralized Blush (188 brush)

LIPS
MAC Dervish Lip Liner
MAC Viva Glam VI Special Edition Lipglass













I did record a tutorial for this, I am working on editing it. Hopefully it will be up and running in a couple days. In the meantime, I would appreciate any ideas on my next tutorial! Talk to y'all soon!

Fresh, Summery FOTDs

EDIT: Please keep everyone in the DFW area in your prayers. Very harsh storms last night leaving some neighborhoods FLOODED and without electricity. Also, tornados touching down last night with apparently MORE storms to come.... oh my dear Texas weather.

Hey y'all! Got a few things to update y'all on!

First off, I caved in and joined Twitter. You can follow me at http://twitter.com/stephienese. I decided to create a Twitter account so that I can let y'all know when I update my blog or add a video on YouTube. Since my updates on my blog aren't as frequent as they WILL be (hehe), it will keep us in touch :)


Bad news.... my camera died on me :( I'm so sad. I hardly even got to use my pink Sony for any makeup related things. So the pics I am about to post were VERY hard to take LOL. I don't know what's wrong with the camera, basically when I try to review the pics it will just shut off on me. And it will shut off on me after a minute or so (i.e. there goes making a video). Blah. Therefore, I am in the market for a new camera. Any ideas?

Since my camera is dead, I am taking pics of my makeup sale with the Babe's (i.e. Mike's) camera. I'll try to make a video with his camera... not sure how to work it yet, so I'll be testing it over the weekend.

Wheeew.

Here's a couple FOTDs I've accumulated the past few weeks. I haven't really been wearing much makeup besides my norm, which is why I only have 2 FOTDs. I started working at a golf course over the summer so I'm outside all day = lack of makeup.

FIRST FOTD

FACE
MAC Loose Mineral Foundation - Medium Dark
MAC Studio Finish Concealer - NC 35
MAC Sunbasque Blush

EYES
UDPP
MAC Dazzleray Pigment - for a sheer wash of color over the lid
MAC Rapid Black Penultimate Eye Liner - Upper lash line
MAC Graphblack Technakohl Liner - waterline
MAC Porcelaine/ Browning Brow Shader
Shiseido Mascara Base
Shiseido Lasting Lift Mascara

LIPS
MAC Overrich Lipstick





I've REALLY been loving Forever 21 these days. I love the styles they are bringing to their clothes as well as the price. I've been a real bargain shopper with the economic climate and all, and this outfit probably cost me $25. I got the sandals from Express semi-cheap. I think they were 40% off from $40. Oh how I love finding deals....



SECOND FOTD

MAC Studio Finish Concealer - NC35
MAC Accentuate/ Sculpt - contour cheeks
MAC Prism Blush
