    EXHAUSTED!!

    is what i am..

    I quit my job and started my new job last Friday. With training and my regular hours, i've worked 7 days straight..that makes 66 hours, oh plus one hour today..i am so exhausted..this has been by far the longest week ever!..*deep breath*..

    I can't keep up with MAC anymore, collections are coming out left and right. I haven't even posted my Naughty Nauticals looks yet, here comes another..I hauled Neo Sci-fi and Solar Field yesterday, i went straight to MAC as soon as i got off work..I felt that i "deserve" it..lol..i didn't go crazy like i did on the past collections..i'm trying my hardest to cut down on my make-up expenses as the boyfriend and i are saving up for a new car and we're also planning to move to a new apartment soon..i picked up 4 things..yes ladies, you read that right, just FOUR!..2 eyeshadows, 1 blush and a beauty powder..eyeshadows that i got were, evening aura (the peachy-orange-y e/s) and the super GORRRRRGEOUS magnetic fields=LOVE LOVE LOVE..then i also picked up Spaced-out sheertone shimmer blush which i think is really gorgeous as a highlight color..then last would be Solar Riche, i mainly got that just for the compact..i might come back for a lipstick and a lipglass later, we'll see..none of the l/s and l/g appealed to me, i just want one of each for my collection..i don't know about you but i looooove the packaging..so LOUD, i love it!

    anywoodle, here' a couple of looks from awhile ago..my days have been so hectic i don't get to take pictures of the looks i've done recently..don't worry, nothing special anyway..

    Look #1
    Dramatic Smokey eyes..
    This is the first time i did a REAL smokey eye look. I always felt intimidated by this look since it is indeed very dramatic..I didn't get to wear this out though, it was just one of those "just playing looks"..This is also very different because i didn't use not one MAC product..*what???, no MAC*..lol..i used all drugstore items!..on with the look..

    Face:
    Maybelline Mineral Power Liquid Foundation *whew, that's a mouthful*
    Maybelline Mineral Power concealer
    Nichido Loose Powder

    Eyes:
    HIP paint "secretive"
    HIP paint "steely"
    ELF Dusk e/s
    Nyx Brown e/s (no name, it's in a trio)
    ELF Ivory e/s
    CG Lashblast

    Cheeks:
    Milani Luminous Mineral blush *i think* if not, then it's probably Mai-Tai
    Wet N Wild bronzer

    Lips:
    ELF tone correcting concealer *lol*
    Nyx clear gloss





    dramatic shot to go with the dramatic eyes

    I missed you! I hope you'll get some well-deserved rest with the memorial weekend!

    The looks posted are soo pretty! especially the smokey eye! It is so sexy!!

    I am waiting on my sci fi order. I am trying to save up too and MAC has just decided to ruin us!!
    so...i got expensive pink, sci-fidelity lippie, pink grapefruit and x-rocks blush..

    enjoy your weekend!

    Wow...these looks are absolutely gorgeous. And I think you did a wonderful interpretation of a smokey eye. It's dramatic, but soft and complimenting at the same time. And im a fan of steely as well. I've used it on my smokey look and it's just so pretty. And the last look? You look like a golden goddess. I love it!
