Green with Envy

Two words: Oooohh lala. Is that three?
This is a look I did last night for karaoke. 
Looks very festive though, maybe I was thinking about Christmas. It IS right around the corner.
Here's what I used:
Eyes: MAC Prep & Prime eyeshadow base (medium) - MAC BioGreen - MAC Warm Chill - MAC Gulf Stream - MAC Pencil in Forest Green - MAC kohl liner in Feline - Benefit BadGal Lash
Lips - MAC prolong in Red Flame/Orange Flicker

Skinny Bitch!

This is a bid kick in the rump for those of us who want to be healthy, happy, and beautiful! This is a MUST READ for everyone (yes, even men!)
It made me laugh, cry, and really changed my point of view on some things, so I encourange everyone to check it out. My only negitive review is that the profanity in the book is a bit overkill, also you need to take ALL the advice with a grain of salt! Don't go overboard with this, unless you live in LA or NYC. They go overboard with everything. (sorry)

Double Time - Flapper Look

I made a video! Well, sorta with help. Meeger at best, but I've already got a pile full of ideas on how to improve it. 
I was going for a theatrical nineteen twenties makeup look. Below is a list of what I used. 
Jane Iredale Disapear Concealer
Jane Iredale Circle Delete
MAC Prep and Prime Face and Eyelid Primer
Jane Liquid - Cheapy stuff
Jane Iredale PureMatte Finish Powder
Baby Powder
Jane Iredale Flushed blush (use as sculpter also inside of eyes near nasal bridge)
Jane Iredale Wine & Roses shadow (base all over lid)
Jane Iredale Smokey Grey  (outer edge)
MAC Post Haste (middle and inner lid)
MAC Black Tied (all around eyes)
Jane Iredale longest lash in Black Ice
Jane Iredale black eyeliner
Jane Iredale Spice lipliner
Jane Iredale Toffee gloss
Jane Iredale 14k silver dust (highlighter)
Warning: I got carried away with lipstick and brushes and filled in one side of my model's lips too much, hey you live you learn! It doesn't make it any less cool to me. Thanks to April for being my model extrodinare, and also to my wonderful husband who indulges me in all this silliness, and his musical wonderment (heard in video)!
Below are the photos from the end of the video - youtube has terrible resolution so I thought you might like to see them as they were orginally intended.
