Prom 2012!

Prom 2012

Getting Ready!

I had the opportunity to do makeup for a sweet young lady for her Prom this year.  She had chosen a beautiful hot pink dress to wear, so we decided to go with a silver and grey smokey eye to compliment it.

Finished Look!

Just look at this girl, isn’t she gorgeous??!!  It was so fun to work with her!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!


FOTD (Face of the Day) – Mauvelously Smokey

Haha! This look isn’t even close to a traditional “smokey eye”, but I couldn’t resist a title like this given the names of the eyeshadows. Bear with me, I know…..
The softness of the eyeshadows combined with the neutral lips and cheeks balanced out the bold eyeliner. This would be easy to transition into a night out look by blending a little black eyeshadow to the outer V area of the eye.

Product Review: Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Eye Makeup Remover

This eye makeup remover really works! It’s full of all natural organic oils that are great for removing makeup. It also helps to condition eyelashes so that they can grow in healthy and strong! Bonus!

This successfully removes both natural and drugstore eye makeup products. I have used this personally as well as with clients and have never experienced any sensitivity issues. This does have a very slight citrus scent, it’s not strong but it’s there.

I really like that this is a solid product. It makes it great for traveling and could also double as a cuticle treatment and lip balm if you didn’t want to pack 3 separate products!


  • All natural & organic
  • Affordable
  • Works well
  • Helps condition lashes
  • Multiple uses
  • Won’t spill when traveling


Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Clearly, I have a fondness for the color green…..which works out well since it’s St Patrick’s Day!

Products used:

I used mineral eyeshadow samples that I had lying around from The She Space, a company that has since closed. 😦 But here is a color breakdown:

  • Yellowy green metallic eyeshadow as a wash all over the lid and along the lower lash line
  • Dark teal green metallic shadow blended into the crease, outer V of the lid and along the outer 1/3 of the lower lid
  • Grey eyeliner with a slight flick, smudged applied on top lash line and on waterline
  • Champagne shadow underneath the brows for highlight

I stole borrowed this hat from my daughter.  It’s so fuzzy and warm and perfect for cold days!  Thanks, sweet daughter! 🙂

Happy St. Patty’s Day, everyone!
