1. Apply the the Matte brown shade on crease and above crease
2.With your ring finger apply the silver shade all over lid
3. Apply Matte nude on browbone
4. Apply Black sparkle shade under your lash line
5. Wet a flat brush with Mac's fix+ or eye drops and pat bh cosmetics gliter in sliver all over lid.
6. Add black liner on water line and black liquid liner on the lash line for a winged eye
7. Apply falsies or your favorite mascara
8. I used the blush in the palette, it's a pretty pink and hint of gold shimmer.
9. I applied Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream Stockholm and applied Buxom lip gloss in Celeste in the center of lip.

This is my last post of the year! Cheers to new beginnings and a prosperous New Year in 2015!! Be safe and have fun!! See you in the New Year!!

My life in a nut shell...

I'm sorry I've been M.I.A. It has been super busy for me. As most of my followers know and for those that don't know me, I'm a wife, mom of three, room parent and running my own businesses! This post is different from all my previous posts and I'm switching it up for you all. My blog is going to be revamped, stay tuned for that! Yes, I have a lot on my plate, but I wouldn't change it for the world. It's such a blessing!

Here is my life in the past week! 

Halloween was a blast! I went as a witch, but a good witch. My son was terrified of my makeup. So, I kept it simple. My husband' s cousin had a Halloween party and there was some dope costumes!



My eldest daughter just turned 6 at the beginning of this month. We did a Frozen party. She had such a blast! Happy Birthday Halle!

Halle and the twins!

Here are some fun projects I put together for my Kinder class! 

This is a basket for a Silent Auction to raise money for our classroom. Our theme was Angry Birds.

The class made corns for the corn field out in the hall that I put together. We also made pilgrims, military girls/boys and I put up the Veterans wall! 

Along with doing all my mommy and wifey duties, I love to spending time with my girlfriends! With all the craziness during the week some of us girls were able to get together to make our Fall wreaths. It was super easy and fun! Everyone's wreaths came out beautiful!

Two of the ladies added a monogram. So pretty! 
The twig wreath and fall hydrangeas I purchased at Hobby Lobby. Make sure to use your 40% off one regular price items. My flowers were 40% off. The burlap was $3.50 with a coupon from Michaels.

There it is folks I wear many hats, I'm so grateful and blessed! Everything I do is for my family. There is more to me than just my makeup looks. I hope you enjoyed! Until my next post!  

Have a great week!

Beauty tip: How to fix your clumpy mascara

Hi!! My favorite mascara is clumping up and I'm anxious to get my new tube in the mail! This happens to every tube of mascara over time. Unfortunately mascara dries out. To help prevent this, don’t pump your mascara to get more on your wand; you’re basically pumping air into the tube causing it to dry out even faster.
Since I'm waiting for my new tube, here's a trick I learned. Add a drop or two of Visine (any brand of eye drops) into the tube, and then rub the wand around inside. The Visine softens the mascara. Your mascara will feel brand new and your application will go on smoothly. Keep in mind, this is a temporary fix, you should replace your mascara every 3 months.
I hope you find this helpful! Enjoy the rest of your week!

    Product review: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel

    Hi guys! Today I have a review of the new Sally Hansen Miracle Gel for you! I've gotten so many compliments on my nails and of course I am not a professional manicurist. Lately, I've been painting my own nails because I just don't have time to get to the nail shop and sit for 2 hours. I'd rather have my pedi done than my nails... just saying! No UV light required and up to 14 days of color & shine, so I gave it a try and bought a set for myself!
    The shade I got is Wine Stock, it's a nice vampy red and I figured it's a perfect color to transition to fall colors. There are a ton of shades in this collection (45 total). The Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polishes are available individually or you can get them in a set with 1 color and the special top coat. I got my set at Target and you can also find this at your local Walgreens or Ulta.
    The formula is really nice to apply and the coverage was good, the directions say to use 2 coats. The top coat comes in a black bottle and does not require a light to cure. I let my nails dry a bit before I applied the top coat. I did notice the top coat did drag some color off, but once the top coat dried I didn't notice any streaks from that dragging. Dry time with the top coat was good.
    I'm pretty impressed with this product and my nails lasted for 12 1/2 days until it started to chip! I'm home with the kiddos and I wash my hands pretty often and also,  I use gloves to wash my dishes. I would definitely recommend this product!
    I hope you find this review helpful!
    If you want to see a swatch of all the colors here is great blog I found! Enjoy!

    How to: Easy Contouring and Highlighting

    Hello my beauties!! Sorry I've been M.I.A. Adjusting to our new schedule has thrown me off a bit and my Younique business is keeping me busy, but don't worry I'm back for good! It's a huge trend right now to contour and highlight so I wanted to show you how I contour and highlight my face. I've always semi-contoured my face before I completely learned to contour and highlight. I have a fuller face and the contour helps make the illusion that it is thinner or more sculpted. Contouring and Highlighting is really crucial  for camera and TV. The benefits of contouring is to give you dimension, if not you would look flat.The benefits of highlighting is used when there is a certain part or feature you would like to bring out or "highlight"or "bring focus to" when there are certain flaws you would like to take focus off of. 

    Here's a guide to help you. I don't take credit for this photo.
    Here's a pictorial of how I contour and highlight my face. Btw this was not fun taking a before photo of my face without makeup. =P I definitely prefer to have makeup on for photos lol!
    Starting from the left - this is me with no makeup on. Eek!! I took my Younique primer and then applied my Younique cream foundation and applied it all over as you see in the photo and then I took my Real Techniques beauty blender (damp) to blend out the foundation to even out my skin.
    I took my Maybelline Fit me Concealer to highlight the areas on face. When you highlight you want to use 2 shades lighter than your skin tone. Then I took my Cover girl invisible concealer to contour my hollows of my cheek, temples, fore head, jaw line and nose. To contour you want to use 2 shades darker than your skin tone. I took my sponge to blend it out. 
      I used Younique mineral concealer to set the areas I highlighted and then used the darker shade to deepen it more. Apply the rest of your face and there you have it! 
    Here it is my Before and After! What a huge difference! 
    I hope you all enjoyed this! I know this may seem a lot or overwhelming, but it's a lot of fun! Give it a try!
