My new fave polish, Crown Me, Already

I love, love, love this polish. I can't even begin to express how much I love it. It takes all my willpower to not put it on every single day.

It's a beautiful silver glitter with small glitter and then bigger chunky glitter. It's meant to be the layering polish in the Miss Universe 2011 collection, from OPI, but I apply 3 layers and it stands on it's own, with just a few bald spots.

so amazing.

My Face. Thursday, September 8, 2011

Today was another chilly day. I opted for a plain black long sleeve shirt so I could play with the eyeshadow in a darker color.

I used Ochre Paint Pot as a primer all over my lid. Then pressed MAC Circa Plum Pigment on the bottom half of the lid, MAC Shadowy Lady in the crease, and then under my brow as a highlighter, MAC Lightfall. Brows are once again Haute and Naughty Mascara.

What did you wear today?

My Face. Wednesday, September 7, 2011

Today was the first sweater day of fall!!! I wore a cute Hana Andersson sweater with lots of colors. I played off the greens and yellows in the sweater since it was gloomy outside.

I used MAC nc20 foundation, stippled application and the eye shadow is from the Mac double features 1 and 2. (love these) and Mac Haute and Naughty mascara.

My Face

I've never really done the makeup thing before. Sure I always liked to buy it, but I never really wore it. I think a lot of it was because I never really learned how to wear it. My mom wasn't a big makeup wearer. Thanks to the interwebz and youtube, I've learned so much over the last few months.

So I'll start posting some makeup stuff here along with the nail stuff. I'm no expert by any means, but I figured, most of us aren't. Feel free to post your makeup and nail tips, tricks and info and we'll be fabulous together!

Gradient Nails

This was my first manicure with gradient nails. I used the sponge technique. I liked that it was subtle and not as outrageous as some of my other manis!
