What Rocked My World This Week

Image

Cobalt Nails

I couldn’t resist this tempting color.  I started with an older one I found in my nail polish collection (yes, I have a true collection with multiple hues).  I’ve always been a fan of funky colors and I just so happened to have one from Sally Hansen’s line of Xtreme Wear polishes in Pacific Blue (#33)

 

Cool. I know.

Perks Of Being a Wallflower

I just watched this movie and usually I can’t sit still during a 2 hour flick; however this one kept my eyes glued to the TV.  Emma Watson plays an awesome role of a rebel turned “I wanna go to college” kind of girl and the lead character Charlie is an over analyzer (I’m talking-about everything and I can relate) who is always in his head; writing often to a person who he doesn’t know- awkward at first with a history of addiction problems and blooming into a social butterfly making friends his freshman year of high school.   I mean. Let’s just say this movie is RAD.

Hot Pink Lipstick

This is a beauty blog- so lets focus on beauty.  I wanted to test out hot pink lipstick- fuchsia to be exact- so I got a tester from Wet n Wild.  For 99 cents I got a BANGIN pout.  I kept my face neutral with a light blush ( peaceful from Tarte) lining my lids first with Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Triggerfish by Stila and then overlapping with 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Bourbon from Urban Decay, filling in between my lashes and under my lashline.  Applying Supercurl Curling Mascara by Urban Decay to the top lashes and then the outer corner lower lashes.  

 

I applied powder over my lips and a primer to keep my cheap lipstick put (which worked)  Applied the lipstick, blotted, re-applied and brushed smoothly with my ring finger.

 

Try it.  It was pretty sexy and I got lots of compliments! Hows that for ninety-nine cents.

Loreal Moisturizing Eye Make Up Remover Wipes

To be honest I do not go anywhere without these things.  I was actually introduced to them by a friend (Nicole) after she watched me commit a huge beauty fowl- I was washing my eye make up off with soap- gross.  I use these before I get into the shower or before I take off my make up-  this is an okay time to play safe- we don’t like wrinkles.  They moisturize and protect that delicate skin area.  BOOM.

Finally My Super Easy  “Getting Ready To Run Errands” Routine

 

In the morning I rinse my face with warm water to open my pores up then rinse with cold water to close them.  I apply an eye cream and then my favorite Beauty Balm by Too Faced in Cream Glow.  I apply my blush Peaceful by Tarte and then get down to business on my eyes.  I never leave the house without a little liner and mascara- it makes you look so much more awake!  A little brown liner at the outter corner of the eyes, curling the lashes and swiping my everyday mascara Mega Lush by Maybelline.  The Vaseline is used for my eye brows.  Shaping and holding and making them look a little more tame; also applied to my lips for a simple, natural shine.

Taylor Swift Is Sexified At The Brit Awards!

Image

It looks like this sweet country girl is going bad.. In a good way.

From those tight curls and frilly dresses to this new chic, edgy look, Taylor swift is turning in her nice girl looks for a bonafied edgy and gorgeous look; I thought I would never see the day!

Loving her relaxed hair and eye grazing bangs that fit perfectly along with her smokey come hither eye make up.  Pairing with a gorgeous peek-a-boo gown by Ellie Saab, Miss swift is opting for the dark side, keeping it elegant, young and fresh; we always love a good surprise!

And check out her “Rocker” fit:

Nailed it.  Not to mention she started off in a white dress and literally stripped down on stage.

I might actually become a Taylor fan now and I never, ever, thought that would happen 😉
