OPI Holiday Polishes Coming Soon!

Eeeeeeeek I'm like a kid in a candy store when it comes to new nail polishes. I truly believe a girl can never have too many and I have many! That being said, OPI is releasing a Holiday edition as usual which includes the AMAZING liquid sand polishes. The "spokes model" is Mariah Carey yet again and the colors are FABULOUS! Take look see...
OPI's website does not have them online as of yet but should very soon. Here is a look at the older ones from this year as well
I do have the purple one, Can't Let Go, and it is fabulous! The color lasts for a very long time and it's super easy to take off which surprised me. More to come soon on a release date. I will be first in line to buy these :)

OPI Mani!

I have been obsessed with OPI nail polishes for a few years. OPI has the BEST polishes that I have ever used and that includes it beating out Essie. I have many many bottles of which I will make a post about soon. Anyway, I want to say my most used botle of OPI is Crown Me Already. It is a goregeous silver glitter color and I use it to put on my ring fingers while my other fingers are a solid color or over lap it with a sheer light color. This is OPI's Crown Me Already
With the mani I did I used a the Crown Me Already on my ring fingernails and I used OPI's Russian Navy on the rest of my nails. I am so obsessed wih Russian Navy! It's a dark blue that actually looks purple in the bottle. I use it a lot and will be buying it when I run out. Here is a picture of Russian Navy.
and here is my little mani! Love it :)
OPI is sold at many hair salons, grocery stores, pharmacies and also Jc Penny! Thanks for stopping by :)

Falsies Pics

Ugh Sorry guys but no tutorial today for the lashes! Today has been a busy day and I was sick for most of it and didn't get a chance to do a thing but I plan on doing the tutorial tomorrow. It was my first time with lashes and they were a bit challenging to do! I did use the Duo Lash Glue and I thought it worked well but I had to let it sit for about 5 minutes instead of the 30 seconds they say so it could get tacky enough to apply them. The natural ones I saw no difference because my lashes are already thick and then the dramatic ones I thought looked pretty great! Let me post the link where I ordered these from on Amazon Tomorrow I will be trying the ELF ones though that I had a picture up on the previous post. Below is a picture of me without lashes
Me with natural Lashes
Me with Long Dramatic Lashes
So with me I have to do the dramatic ones to show more! The ELF ones I purchased look more full and longer than these so I can't wait to try them. Look out for that post tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by :)

Today I decided to talk about E.L.F. cosmetics! Now they are more than just makeup, they have brushes as well that I just love and I have about 5 of them so far, reason being is I could only find those ones lol Anyway, I do have 2 brushes on order from them and that is the eye blending brush and the crease brush and I can't wait to do get them and do a tutorial on all of them! Now, I don't just Love E.L.F. for their brushes, I also love their makeup too! The HD powder is just absolutely amazing. It's a white powder so you shouldn't use alot and it has a shimmery finish. It's also compared to Makeup Forever's HD Powder which retails at about $30! Ugh yeah too expensive for me but you can get E.L.F.'s for $4 from Amazon! The only differnce is you get 10 grams with MF and 8 grams with E.L.F. but that's it, no other difference at all so this one is a no brainer! I have also bought 3 different palletes of eyeshadow from E.L.F and each has 32 colors at $5 a piece. My experience with them is great as well. I also, Love love love their eyelid primer, it's a neutral color that you apply before your eyeshadow to make it last twice a long, that was $1. My eye makeup stays on great for about 6 hours or so with this stuff! I also have purchased their natural and dramatic lash kit for 99 cents a piece at dollar tree and I will be doing that tutorial tomorrow as I posted in my previous blog. I am slo a huge fan of the HD blush but a little warning is less is more lol The first time I used it it was way way way too much but use their stipple brush with it and it goes on perfectly, that was $2.99. They also have a product called mist and set. After you apply all of your makeup you spritz this on your face and it keeps your makeup in tact, it works very very well! The Mist and Set was $3 or $4. I do have a few more items as well, the picture is below. Have any questions about any of these products please let me know! They are all very cheap but of high quality! Thanks for stopping by :)

Big Fake Eyelash Tutorial Coming 9/9/13 :)

So I bought tons of these fake eyelashes to mess with and from watching some of my favorite girls on youtube I have discovered that I was doing it wrong! lol Well you gotta learn somewhere right? As you can see of the picture on my Ravens makeup page, my eyelashes do look fake but nope they arent! I do have long lashes but I'm very curious to see how they will look like with the falsies on. I have a pair of the E.L.F. eyelashes in natural that I bought at Dollar Tree! Yup, you heard me right, E.L.F. cosmetics at Dollar Tree! They had the lip stains, duo eyeliners, concealer pencils with sharpeners and the eye lashes. I was there last week and the eyelashes are brand new so I will be going in there weekly and give you all an update on that ;) I'm going to be doing a video on this turorial and will be using my iphone to do so. You don't need close ups like a makeup tutorial so I hope it's going to work haha Watch out for it on Monday and thanks! :)

Baltimore Ravens Eye Makeup

Hey guys! Well, as you know it's Football season! I for one am I huge fan of Football, especially my Baltimore Ravens! If you are familiar with them then you know their colors are purple and black. So finding an eyeshadow pallete for that was so easy. I headed on down to Walgreens to pick up Wet n Wild's Fergie Photo Op Eye Shadow Palette in “Maldives Sky”
Now, I actually only used two colors in this pallete and that was the dark purple and the matte black in the center, that's it! I started with a neutral brown along my crease of the eye using my essence of beauty crease duo brushes. I highly recommend them for the perfect crease coloring! They are around $5 and come in a pack of 2 at CVS, 1 small dome brush and one bigger dome brush. Next, I used my E.L.F. eyeshadow flat brush and lightly dabbed the purple on my lid, I did that two times per eye. I also took out my E.L.F. crease brush and used the purple along my bottom lash line for a pop of color. Just a little fyi, purple goes great with green eyes! After that, I took the black and put it over my brown shade on the crease and added a little to the corner of my eye. I added 2 coats of mascara then lined my bottom and lower lash line with Jordana eyeliner in black. That's it, all done! It took maybe 10 minutes if that I believe. Also, yes those are my real eyelashes, I have very thick ones and it probably explains why I can't get the fake ones to stick to them lol Anyway, I can do a video tutorial on it as well but all I have at the moment is my iphone for video so we can see how that goes haha Thanks for stopping by! :)

Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Trio~Sweet As Candy

Well, recently I've been into a kind of new makeup routine lol I wanted to try some new products because the old ones just weren't cutting it! I surfed the internet looking for beauty tutorials and figured I may as well start at eyeshadows. They make your eyes pop and come in a huge array of colors so that should be fun but what brand do I try? Arrrgh! After my "research" I decided to give Wet N Wild a try. Sure, I used their products when I was younger but hey, I'm 31 now so it's time to grow up and that includes my makeup, right? Wrong! Let me tell you something about Wet n Wild, well a lot of things! First off, pigmentation is so very important with eyeshadows because we want the color that is shown on the pallete and we want it to last! I went to Dollar General and low and behold I found Wet N Wild trios. The color I picked up was Sweet As Candy and I picked it up because it neutral colors and a pop of pink! The color selection goes with any and everything you wear so why not? Here's a picture of Sweet As Candy~
The top color is a creamy eggshell color that goes on your brow bone (under your eyebrow) as a highlighter. The middle color is a pretty, muted brown color that you put in the crease of your eye for an enhancing effect. The bottom color is a sweet, light pink that you put on your eye lid. Now I always use an eyelid primer prior to use because they make your eyeshadow last much longer and it gives it a clean slate for color to go on correctly, but I have used this without it and it lasts about 6 hours or so which is pretty darn good! Now, I've done some swatches of these colors as well and I used the the underside of my forearm because it's more close to your skin tone and hairless. Here's a swatch picture for you~
As you can see, the colors are very pigmented and these do have a shimmer to them that is just gorgeous! There are several Wet n Wild eyeshadow trios and I'm going to be doing a post on every one so you can pick and choose which ones you like. I haven't bought them all but I have about 9 or 10. They are sold at Dollar General, Walgreens, Kmart and CVS. That's the stores here in Florida where I have seen them at, of course Wet N Wild is a very popular brand so I'm sure you can find them at other places as well. Their website is and you can order from them too if you'd like. The Trios I have found everywhere for $2.99! For that pigmentation and 3 different colors you just can't go wrong! I can do a tutorial on them as well, just let me know! Thanks for coming by! :)
