Makeup Tutorial: Rusty Brown Eyes For Fall

Hey y'all!

I got such a large amount of requests to recreate this makeup from my outfit of the day post. I hope y'all enjoy!



FACE
Missha BB Cream #31
MAC MSF Natural - Medium Plus
MAC Studio Finish Concealer NC35
Me Me Me Shimmer Bronzer

EYES
MAC Porcelaine/Browning Brow Shader
UDPP Sin
Sleek Palette
- Rusty brown on lid
- Matte brown in crease
- Highlight brow bone & inner tear duct
MAC Dipdown Fluidline
Shiseido Mascara Base & Lasting Lift Mascara

LIPS
Rimmel Spotlight Beige






Now just FYI on the Missha BB Cream issue, I seriously have tried my best to look on eBay to find it as well as other websites. The only place I've found the bb cream in #31 Golden Beige is the Official Missha Website. I bought mine for only $20 on eBay but since it's not available on there, they're selling it for $30 on the Offical Missha website. I honestly love my bb cream so I think it's worth it.

I hope this helps! I'm studying for an audit exam I have on Wednesday :[ Mike and I are moving to Las Colinas on Friday.... I can't wait for my exam to be over so I can actually be EXCITED! Instead of stressing over my exam.

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

My 100th Video!!! What I'm Wearing #9: Lace & High Waisted Shorts

Hey y'all!

One of my subscribers reminded that this video is actually my 100th video! Yikes! LOL

I'm SO in love with this Rimmel lipstick! I've had the worst luck with finding a good nude lipstick that doesn't wash me out. Loves it!




Outfit Of The Day

Black bodysuit - Asos - Small (buy similar here)
Lace cardigan - Forever 21 - Small(buy similar here)
High waisted wool shorts - Forever 21 - Small (buy here)
Lace ballet flats - Bought from Lulu*s, brand is Dollhouse - Size 7 (Similar here.)

I'm totally digging high waisted shorts at the moment. These shorts are pretty thick too, so they'll work out during the colder weather!


I normally wear a 7 1/2 in shoes but the Lulu*s website gave a good suggestion stating the flats run a 1/2 size too big. They were spot on! These flats fit me great. 7 1/2 would have been way too big!


What do y'all think?

My UK Swap!

Hi y'all!

I did a swap haul with my friend Claire. I already recorded a video talking about my swap haul, so if you haven't seen it, here it is:



I did a few looks with the Sleek Palette. It has become my go to palette :]

Barry M Mint Green Nail Polish


My bare naked face :]


Just wearing some mineral foundation, brow powder & mascara


Look #1




Look #2




Look #3. I'm also wearing Model 21 #45 lashes (looks like it's not on their website anymore but similar one here). I liked the other lashes from Model 21 I received than these. The band was a lot thicker on the #45 than in my other post.







Eyeko Punk Polish

I wore this polish a couple weeks ago. I'm seriously LOVING the consistency of the polishes from Eyeko :]




If y'all want any tutorials or more details on any of the looks, lemme know :]

XO,

Disclaimer: Products from Model 21 and Eyeko were sent to me for review. I am not being paid to show these products. I give my honest opinions on these products. Just letting y'all know about new companies and products out there :]

I'm So Dirty!

Hey y'all!

A few weeks ago, I tweeted that I was going to be playing mud volleyball.... It was SOOOOO much fun! Needless to say, I got mud in places you wouldn't even want to have mud.... *sideways glance* but it was a fun experience to have! My university holds an annual tournament in the fall. This was my first time playing in it as well as my last opportunity since I graduate in December HALLELUJAH!

Just stepping into the volleyball "court" would instantly sink you in. I was having trouble getting unstuck!


The city water department was there all day long with a huge water hose. Spraying down muddy (and some drunk) college students. I'm sure they must have had such a fun day!


Post-war dirtiness LOL


FOBing out


The New Abode

Mike and I will be moving in less than 3 weeks & can't be more excited! We were able to see the new place after we signed our lease. It's a new property in a nice, urban neighborhood and no one has lived in our unit yet! Double bonus!

The kitchen. I love the big island & open concept. Granite topped counters... gorgeous! So much better than our itty bitty kitchen right now. In our current home, Mike and I can't cook or prepare a meal together at the same time. There just isn't enough space! It has lead to a few disgruntled attempts so we are super excited for the new kitchen!


The faucet attachment. Such an upgrade compared to our 1970's sink. I'm actually excited to wash dishes here! Haha... don't tell that to Mike though >_<



Great natural lighting in the living room.


The wall where our TV will probably go.


The doorway to the bathroom is straight ahead, washer/ dryer area to the left, and the bedroom is on the right.


Our bedroom. It was hard to get a good angle of the room.


The bathroom :]


Separate shower!!!


Garden tub!!! I see myself taking many a bath when we move <3 <3 <3


My side of the walk-in closet. Mike was so gracious, he instantly said it was my side while he took the smaller side <3 Such a good man :]


Mikie's side :]


I wanted an over the threshold picture... not a great idea when it's on auto & I'm wearing a skirt, hence the hearts... LOL


Golf Outing

For those of you whose significant other is a golfer, you know my pain. Golf can consume some people! Mike's past time is video games & golf. I decided to take up golf because 1) it'll be good for business (lots of deals go down on the golf course... meeting outside the office if you will) 2) I get to spend time with Mike doing something he loves. He has his golf buddies but sometimes I tag along when the weather is nice enough. It's actually really fun! So ladies, if you can't beat them, join them!

By the way, I am selling the golf shoes in this picture. I have used them 4 times only. I will sell them for $22 which includes shipping. They are in a size 7.5 but fit like a 7. I thought they'd stretch out with wear but they haven't. I end up with pinched toes :[



I've only golfed a handful of times. But I do try :]


Face of the Night

We celebrated my friend Tawni's birthday at a Main Event... basically an arcade for adults :]

I don't drink often but when I do, my shot of choice is Patron :]


Mike is a wonder at the stuffed animal grabbing machine. He caught 2! So we gave one to Tawni, the cow is for Juicy hehe


We played some games, brought back some good memories from my childhood. I even beat Mike at a few rounds of basketball :]
