This amazing lady is 84 years old. She is my mom's mother ...and probably one of the best human beings on the planet. I just love my grammy. She was in town this week for the holidays from Quebec, so my mom appointed me to do a beauty treatment on her. We had SO much fun. I first gave her a facial . . .
The new Clinique A Black Honey Affair Palettethat just came out recently is another favorite of mine. For 36$, these palettes are more on the affordable side compared to the Naked Palettes by Urban Decay, but the quality of the shadow and texture is just as good in my opinion. The colors are very . . .
I saw a beautiful picture on Beautylish of a model wearing this Kjaer Weis Eyshadow in Blue Wonder and thought it was such a unique color. I had to try it. This looks almost like a country blue/navy in the pan but upon application I noticed some aqua green in it as well. This is the first organic . . .

I don't even know why I wanted shimmer as it is a Saturday afternoon...but it's gorgeous out, and my husband and I are going to be doing some fun errands together :).

I don't know where I changed my mind..maybe I read a blog or saw some youtube video using it..I don't quite remember. Either way, I have been LOVING this for every day makeup for . . .
I tried this look recently and really liked the way the subtle gray eyeshadow matched with the subtle lilac tint in the lip gloss. To get this look, I used one shade of eyeshadow from my Nars God Created the Woman-59$ palette called Bellisima. It's a soft beautiful gray color with an almost purple . . .
I have had the Chanel Les 4 Ombres in 14 Mystic Eyes palette FOREVER (which means I might have to chuck it :(...) but it has remained one of my all time favorites. The sales person at the Chanel Counter coerced me into buying it, because at that time there was NO way I was going to spend that kind . . .
MAC Eyeshadow in Sweet Heat: This is a beautiful gold shade you can use to layer over a lot of different eye shadows. For this picture, I layered over one of the pinkish lighter shades from my Naked 3 palette. I found that this created a pinky gold look that really catches the light nicely. You can . . .
BASE: BEFORE APPLYING SMASHBOX CC CREAM: AFTER SMASHBOX CC CREAM (A SAMPLE I AM TRYING OUT-Seems to have better coverage than a typical CC Cream): APPLICATION OF NARS RADIANT CONCEALER IN CUSTARD (NEW FAVORITE CONCEALER): BLENDING WITH REAL TECHNIQUES CONTOUR BRUSH (MY FAVORITE FOR CONCEALER . . .
Above Two Pictures: Me Wearing A mixture of Buzz, Burnout and Liar Me Wearing JUST "liar" along lash line Me Wearing Nooner as a base with Trick over it. I recently got this AMAZing coupon from Sephora, so I ordered the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette with it. Mind you, I Do not even own one or . . .
