Too Faced Smokey Eye palette

Here are swatches of my newest, and first, Too Faced Smokey Eye eye shadow palette. I originally wanted to get the Tarte for True Blood palette, but it was sold out. When I asked if there were any more in stock I was led to a very clean and lit up display of all the palettes they carry. I wanted to get at least 3 of them, but decided on one of the Too Faced palettes. I think I made a good decision.

Below are pictures of the palette and swatches of the colors.

This palette also includes 3 look cards to help you create each of the smokey eye looks. One card each for Day, Classic, and Fashion.

Each color over Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Day with Firefly, Cloves, Up in Smoke

Classic with White Lie, Nice Ash, Smokin Hot

All the colors blend beautifully. I like this palette so much and will be using it a lot!

Make Up Forever #310

It's blog or bust tonight!
I took a much needed trip into Sephora last week. While there I decided to find a green eye shadow to buy. After swatching some of the brands I came across Make Up For Ever #310. It was so pretty. I had to buy it. So, below are my many pictures of the look I created.

Sorry for so many pictures of my face. I don't remember all the products I used because I put the look together on a kinda last minute decision to go out to eat. Which consisted of driving down the street to Sonic. Haha!

I took my makeup off just a few hours later and noticed the green eye shadow had already started to fade. I made another trip back to Sephora earlier today to return #310. I had in mind to get the Tarte for True Blood palette. Unfortunately it was out of stock. So...I brought home my first Too Faced palette instead!

Hook 'em Horns FOTD

Me and the hubby rarely get out alone. We spend our time at home and with our kids. So, when he asked me if I wanted to take the kids to his parent's house and go watch the Longhorn game at a bar I gladly said yes. I had exra time to do my makeup. I decided this would be the day I wear a pair of false eyelashes. I always look at them on the shelves, own 2 pair, but have never really worn them.

I took a few pics of the final look, but I am not happy with the quality of my camera. I may need to play with the settings a bit or photoshop my pics to be happy. I started to get discouraged about posting, but I received some encouragement from a couple of awesome bloggers. No name dropping just yet. I will dedicate a separate post for that. :-)

On to the look.

Products used:
Revlon Colorstay foundation
Bobbi Brown Corrector
MAC mineralize skinfinish natural
Mayebelline define-a-brow
UD Naked Palette
Stila stay all day waterproof liquid eyeliner
L'Oreal mascara
Ardell lashes
Benefit eye bright on the waterline
NARS Orgasm blush
Revlon just enough buff lipstick
Smashbox Luster lipgloss

Close up shots.

And that's pretty much it for the look.  We had a great time watching the Texas Longhorns win a close game. We ate lots of food and drank lots of alcohol. Here is a pic of one of the drinks we had. All mixed drinks should be this size.  Haha!
