Don't you hate it when...

You sit down to do your makeup, got a plan all laid out...You can see it in your mind....all the beautiful blending and contrast between shimmer and matte. Perfectly defined lashes.....

And then you start on it and you realize it's a total freakin FAIL!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHA

I had that problem this morning. Mind you, I'm doing my face at work like I always do...and I get to the final blending stage and I'm like, this is some bullshicaca! We all know that the first 50-75% of a look it looks horrible, but this was something that no matter what I did, I could have not rescued it from the depths of Hades this look was residing in!

I had to be all ghetto and sashay myself to the bathroom and wash that atrociousness off my eyes! I ended up just with some liner, mascara and a touch of UD's Twiced Baked across the lid with a smidge of Baked dusted over the inner third for a bit of dimension.

Does that ever happen to you? Doesn't it just piss you off? hahahaha.....Tell me, what was your most recent fail?

Operation "Sass Your Stash" Assemblage

Thursday, September 2, 2010

It's amazing what you find in your purse when you actually look thru it lol. Stuck in a zipper pocket I came across this:

I couldnt tell you what collection this came from if I tried. I bought it off Ebay for like $10 from a seller I frequent. I have another one from the same collection I believe (Odd bits), but that's probably buried in my vast makeup drawers at home. I recall why I wasn't a big fan of this shadow before, it's Mineralized and they usually have crappy payoff unless you use them wet. But today I was working with Feline Eye kohl and it was wonderful as the base. I only used the black and the brown, with just a smidge of gold in the inner corners. It's barely noticeable but picks up just the slightest bit of shimmer in the right light.

Laura Geller Tinted Moisturizer in Deep
MAC Sheer pressed powder in NC45
Wet & Wild eyebrow palette
Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer
MAC Feline Eye Kohl as base & liner
MAC Mineralized Shadow Quad in Assemblage
Maybelline Falsies Mascara
NYX Lip liner in Mahogany

100 Day Fast Food Challenge

Posted by Marie

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Ok yes, this particular entry isn't makeup related, but it still falls in the beauty category lol.

I've been playing with the idea of weightloss and these same 20 lbs for about 2 years now. I keep losing & stopping, and having to start over. I'm tired of starting over. I just want to be done with it, make the lifestyle changes and stick to them so that they become habits just like all the bad things became a habit.

Easier said than done.

So as of today, September 1, 2010, I am starting a 100 day challenge to not eat fast food. No McDonalds, no Sonic (gasp!), no Wendy's, not even pizza or chinese....none of that. The only thing that doesn't go on this list is Subway because I have total control on what goes in a sandwich and can make it as healthy as possible.

That's my plan, along with getting back to working out, getting more sleep and focusing on my health. I'll check in periodically on here to give you guys an update on my progress/regress/whatever-gress I may be having.

Feel free to join me if you like! We could all stand to be a bit healthier, right?

Stay Pretty!
