Oh I’ve been busy. Good busy.

Saturday morning, I headed up to LA for a class at the Make Up For Ever Pro Loft (I know right!) and it was absolutely amazing.
The class focused on how to transform a face which takes the Art of Contour to the next level. Lijha Stewart taught us how highlight and contour can completely change our make up and our client’s appearance.
Lijha is truly amazing at what she does!
I took everything I was taught and speed back down to Oceanside and created this look!
I think I did an excellent job for this to be first time using Make Up For Ever’s special fx products.
I used cotton balls, MUFE; plasto wax, spirit glue and their special effects palette. Definitely plan to explore the world of special fx makeup a little more now.
I picked an Urban Decay palette from Nordstrom’s Rack a couple of weeks ago for $12. My first UD palette actually. Shocker! I’m not crazy in love with the Naked palette. Shocker again! I really like this Skull Shadow Box. This palette is on sale as apart of Urban Decay’s Family and Friends sale.
On my lid is Vert. Creased with Twice Baked. Inner corner and lower lid touched barely with Blunt. Outer corner is filled with Oil Slick.
My lip color is a mix of Revlon’s Va Va Violet and Mac’s Beaux.
It took me a while to fall in love with the Wonder Woman palette by MAC. Of course, I purchased it right away in way back when in 2011 but it isn’t a palette I usually grab for. Today I did. =]
Paired with my most favorite mascara by Buxom and my new favorite lipgloss by MAC, Plum Fun.
Eyeshadow: Sable by Mac
Eyeliner: E.L.F. Black Gel
Lipgloss: Beaux by Mac
Sable is one of my most favorite eyeshadows by Mac that is surprisingly still able. I always forget I have Beaux. It’s a perfect natural lipgloss that stays on with some shimmer.
There is something classic about a single eyeshadow color and liner.
Eyeshadow: De-vil by MAC. (Since this shadow was apart of their Villain collection, it is no longer available. Copperring is identical.)
Eyeliner: Eyeko. Available at Sephora.
Lipgloss: Babydoll by NARS.
Mascara: Buxom. Available at Sephora
Well happy Saturday or something of that nature. It was/still is a beautiful day in Southern California. I got up and heading to the Nordstorm Anniversary Sale as would any sane person do on it’s first day.
Wearing a dress from Cotton On for only $5 it was perfect for a casual yet wallet damaging trip to the mall.
I went to get one of MAC’s Nordstrom exclusive sets. I checked it out online at midnight and was still pretty undecided as far what I was going to chose when I got into the store. I went with the Peach lip set that includes a bag. Side note* I am a MAC makeup bag hoarder of some sort. I have way too many than I’d like to admit.
Bag set includes: Cremesheen Lipstick in “Ravishing”. Dazzleglass Creme in “Sublime Shine” and Cremestick Liner in “Creamkiss” to outline and fill.
I know and I am dreading that when and if I eventually do use this bag it was get insanely dirty. I need to scotch guard it and save me a headache.
