Hit or Miss...

I will be posting monthly "Hit or Miss" videos on my You-Tube channel.  These will be 'hopefully' fairly short segments on several items that were either a hit or miss for me during the current month.  Some products may carry over month to month and of course there may be new additions.My February video will be up hopefully by the time you are reading this, but uploading seems to take years.  The new design of my blog should make it easier for you to navigate between this and my channel page.  I am also starting a tab for my Blog Sale, as I plan to make this a permanent addition.  I am always purchasing products at store closings and getting things for really good discounts through friends who work at various stores, so check back periodically for new items.

Valentines Date Sexy Look: MESMERIZED...

This is my look for date night on V-Day...A sexy, romantic look that he won't be able to take his eyes off of.  My hubby actually told me it was mesmerizing, so that is what I am calling it. I love these colors and the way it brings out my eye color, I think most of you could pull these shades off.  I used the following products to create this look: (eyes) MAC Eyeshadow in "Cranberry" on the lid, L'Oreal HIP shadow in "Sculpted"(dark shade only) in crease, and MAC Pigment in "Vanilla" for my highlight and Benefit "They're Real" mascara, a white eyeliner on top lid and waterline. (face) Foundation then MAC Mineralize Skin Finish powder, Benefit Hirvana blush on cheeks, Physicians Formula PH Matchmaker Bronzer. (lips) MAC Viva Glam IV lipstick. 
The video tutorial is up on my you-tube channel, HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!

Essie Polish of the day...




I am wearing Jamaica Me Crazy and Turquois & Caicos (on my ring finger).  These color are both bright and cool toned and make me feel like spring.  Jamaica Me Crazy is a pink with cool blue undertones, it is slightly pearlescent and compliments any skin tone.  I am a light/nuetral skin tone and I loved the way this color looks on me.  The Turquois & Caicos is also a cool tone almost a mint shade of green.  The combination of these two together is a spectacular contrast and just makes me happy and ready for some warm weather.  Let yourself try some crazy combos and share the pics with us, I love to see what other people come up with.  Happy color mixing  :)

GIVEAWAY and Makeup Storage Video

I recently posted a giveaway video on my channel for a total of four Essie nail polishes, two I have pre-chosen and two of YOUR choice.  I am super duper excited about this, it is my first giveaway and my first "official" video.  Please bear with me as I try and find my comfort zone with these videos, I am still a bit uncomfortable in front of the camera, but I am pushing through because this is my passion and I want to share it with you guys.  I am going to try and put up at least three videos a week and if you have any special requests feel free to message them to me.  I also will do another giveaway after the current one is over, so definitely stay in the loop so you do not miss it.  God bless and have a wonderful day :)
