    Oh my goodness guys! I am actually going to Europe this summer. I am dying!!! I have wanted to go forever!! And it is finally happening! I have no clue how long we are staying there but, I can imagine It would be somewhere from one week to two weeks. We would be going to Germany, and France definitely.. and possibly England ( its still up in the air because the Olympics are in England next year!). 
    I have a friend, Ashley, who is coming with me, along with my parents. I have a couple goals before I go there. And I have a couple goals that I would like to accomplish while there.
Some things that I would like to get done before the trip include the following:
      1. Become slightly more tan. Right now.. honestly I am about NW7.. so my goal is to be   
          about NW17ish, In MAC shading.
      2. Get even more "fit". By that I mean really tone up my body. I have a pretty toned 
          stomach, but I want it even more toned. I want to be "fit" for those European boys ;)
      3. Develop a better sense of fashion, and become comfortable with myself.
 Those are my big goals that I want to accomplish before the fact. During our trip.. I want to accomplish these things ( From my bucket list!):

  1. Dance Under the Eiffel Tower.
  2.  Eat macaroons at a French Café.
  3. Kiss a French boy.
  4. Go visit Versailles.
  5. Visit the Louvre.
  6. Hold a conversation with someone fluent in French.
  7. Visit a German castle.
  8. Go on a date with a German ;)
  9. Go to the Black Forest.
  10. Have a summer "thing" with some European guy.
  11. Shop in France/ Germany/ England.
  12. Go to Buckingham Palace.
  13. Ride on a double Decker bus.
  14. Make British friends.
  15. Vlog everyday.
That is my very long list of things that I want to do in these countries! I'm so excited. I want to have fun, I want to be spontaneous, and do something unexpected. I want to remember this trip for the rest of my life.
   If anyone ( Because I know at least one person is from Germany, and one is from France that follow my blog.. and I have a few English followers as well.) has any recommendations as to what I should do in your country? I would love to know!! I'm so excited. If you have any restaurant suggestions, I would love to hear them too!! If you have any places I should check out as far as shopping goes, that would also be greatly appreciated!
Thank you guys!
And when I do go... look out for a HUGE giveaway! 
I will probably post a Christmas day look today or tomorrow!
And Merry Eve of Christmas Eve!!

IM NOT DEAD!! I Promise!!

Hey Guys!!
Long time no see, eh? Well Im so sorry! Around the end of October stuff started happening with my family, and school starting flaring up as well as my health started to take a toll. I was in and out of the doctors office all October and then before I knew it Halloween was here and gone. I couldn't put any of my pictures up or anything. Weeks following I took a trip up to Savannah, GA. I made an executive decision that I am going to go to SCAD for college. It was such as cool experience, I can't even explain how much I  love that place. I love it. And now for Christmas... midterms are coming up.. so I won't be able to do any christmas themed makeup.... this week!! I will most definitely do some next week though because I am off ALL WEEK!! So give me some suggestions as to what you want to see.
I plan on also doing a Hunger Games series makeup where I do all of the Districts!! Im so excited for the movie, i can't contain myself.
I am once again sorry for any "withdraws" that you have had from my absence.. ( Like you have withdraws from me... pshhhh.)
Anyways I love you guys and I will see you soon, I promise!
Also I have a fashion blog, if you want to check it out... Its called ""
Au Revior!

Im a Happy Camper Day :D

Today for me was genuinely a good day for me. Here in Florida the weather is finally starting to cool down a bit and be more tolerable. My morning started off very well, as I got a visit from my neighbors cat which I came to finds name is "Jello". How precious is that? Moving on, it was all up in the driveway loving on me. Despite me being semi-allergic to cats, it was greatly appreciated on "Jello's" part. 

My skin was also behaving, instantly making today a good day!

I rediscovered one of my all time favorite blushes yesterday, MAC'S Dainty, so I decided to wear it again today. It works wonders on fair skinned lovelies. I also rediscovered one of my favorite foundations, MUFE Face & Body in 38. May I add that this is the ONLY foundation that matches me perfectly, the only one! 

In this picture I am wearing an orange shirt but, thats my comfy "I just got home" shirt, I was wearing this really amazing purple velvet blazer and the eyeliner I have on is from MAC's newest collection. Its called Dark Diversion. I got it one because I swear to God I read somewhere that Anna Paquinn wore this on the first season of True Blood.

 And I was trying out the rounded cat eye trend.. I am not sure that I'm a fan.. I think i'm undecided on it.. What do you think?

Major Derppp Face :3

I also want some thoughts on something un makeup related. I really like this coat from ModCloth.. But I am afraid that I am too cool toned for it, or since that it is warm toned it would appear unflattering on me... Thoughts? Or shall I just stick with the grey one? AKA this one?

I promise I will have the Halloween look up by tomorrow!

Au Revior!


Saturday, October 1, 2011


Long time no see, eh? I am so sorry about that but school has been taking over my life and filled out my schedule from when I wake to when I slumber. And then on the weekends all I want to do is relax for one day! ( Usually because for me Sunday is homework day...) Anyways.. tomorrow or Monday I will be posting a HALLOWEEN look!! I am not sure what I shall do, or put up rather. I did two looks so you guys will have to help me decide which to chose!
Since tonight was homecoming at my school and I didn't go.. I did some intensive halloween face art, i guess you could say. I did the "Vampire's Girlfriend" look and I also did the "Bat Mask" look. So you guys tell me what I should post for the next couple days! On the final weekend before Halloween I shall do my favorite look of them all "Pumpkin Spice". So yeah!
Once again sorry for the absence! I shall be better about updating you all! And I know I should be Johnny on the spot since I got new followers... but school is school, and when you are naturally bad at Chemistry.. studying takes up the better half of your days. I wanted to thank hebrideanspritebeauty for that!!
When I reach 100 followers.. which I think will be around Christmas.. I'm going to do the best giveaway for you all! I will probably start gathering prizes now because I know I love Halloween (Or holiday themed make up in general..) make up! So that will be oodles of fun!
For now I have to go finish some AP Govt. notes and graphic organizers.. so yeah. Forgive me?
Love you guys!

Cosmic Love

I've lately been quite obsessed with lining my water liner in a darker sultry color. I have no inkling as to why but I really have been liking it. Another thing I have been loving is fashion and clothes. I don't know what is up with me lately and clothed because about three weeks ago I would have laughed if you would have told me I would be obsessing over clothes in three weeks.I even started a new blog about my slight obsession with clothes lately. Anyway I did this look yesterday and I wanted to play around and see what I could do with a really pretty color in my sleek storm palette. It is a blurple color, it reminds me of Christmas. I also was listening to a song by Florence and the machine called "Cosmic Love" so I thought it was only appropriate to call it just that. And my apologies for my eyebrows looking so red in the pictures. I enhance them so that you can see the colors true to they are in real life, and a small price I pay for that is ginger brows. That's why in some of my pictures i tried to crop the better half of my eyebrows :)

Products used:
Urban Decay Shadow pencil in Morphine
Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Asphyxia 
Sleek Storm palette Blurple
Meow Cosmetics Eye shadow in Nutcracker
MAC Feline Eye Khol
Urban Decay Super Curl Curling Mascara 

And for the Halloween tutorials I will most likely start doing them next weekend! I am so excited to because for the first time in a long time here in Florida, in the beginning of September it is actually starting to feel like fall! It started to get cool, not even cold, COOL, here by the end of November last year! Its very nice that it is starting early this year. Today is also Labor Day here in the states, so happy Labor Day! Today is also my half birthday, in exactly six months my birthday will be here! So have a great day lovelies!

Did Someone Say 64 Days Till Halloween?

 Changing leaves, Oh yes. That Autumn smell, bring it on. Halloween, Hell to the yes. I am so hyped up for Halloween this year, so excited that I am going to be a Halloween series! I don't think anyone understands how unnatural my obsession with Halloween is. Its pretty major too. All of the Halloween shows ever aired, I have watched them. The nightmare before Christmas, my favorite movie ever. All of the goofy songs like "This is Halloween", "The oogie boogie song" I listen to them all year round, I know every single line. And to make matters worse, at my local mall they are prepping a Halloween store.. conveniently placed next to Banana Republic ( must be a sales thing). You would think placing a horror store next to a Banana Republic would a rather laughable thing to do, but I am the psycho person that would actually go into both of those stores and actually buy things.
  And then with all of the indie makeup companies launching Halloween inspired makeup, the names are what sell me. Basically I don't know why I wasn't born on Halloween. #WhitePeopleProblems.
Any way on to the pre selected Halloween makeup!

Pumpkin Spice:
I have never seen this face chart before, although I'm sure it is older. But how cool is it? This should be really  fun to do. I am thinking about doing a step by step tutorial for this one, thoughts? I am going to try to follow this exactly minus the scary contacts because I have really sensitive eyes. This should be especially fun considering how pale I am and how it says that for the face you should use a MAC NC45 foundation. I'm NW15!

Vampire Kisses:

This is inspired by a book series by Ellen Schreiber, I love the main character, Raven, she's dating a vampire named Alexander. I thought it would be fun instead of doing another vampire makeup, that I would do a makeup inspired by a vampires girlfriend. Plus I love this book cover, and her makeup. I have blue eyes so this should look pretty good on me as well. I thought this would also be the more "subdued" Halloween look. Yes it is more dramatic for everyday but for Halloween it is considered "Safe". I might do a step by step tutorial for this too, I might just do it for the whole series. I might even stumble into this Halloween store and buy a black silky wig, to really bring the whole look together. Its gonna be fun coloring my brows black, especially since my brows are blond with red undertones -__-. They I heard are making a movie after these books which I am kind of happy about since i have been reading these since sixth grade, so I have stuck with this book series for ... almost 5 years? If you guys weren't aware I am still in High school. Hope that's to much of a big shocker for anyone, it might though. I don't know!
Bat Mask:
 So I thought this one would be fun. I Idon't 100% understand why
there are fire based colors on the lids, I might keep that in my 
version but I might spice it up, or down rather, and go with the cool color scheme, and go with bright blurple, yes blurple, lips.
I think this mask is really cool looking, and how it looks like you can or have the option of creating so much depth, which I love!I have no idea what your costume could be to wear this, but I would wear this wearing all black resembling a burglar. How cool would it be if this mask was glow in the dark.... Idea maybe? I think so.

 Absinthe Minded:
I usually wear all black on Halloween, black skinny jeans, turtleneck (depending on how Florida feels because it is so bipolar.) so this makeup would look amazing on me passing out candies to the little kids! I don't think its to frightening, that's my opinion at least. I think its cool how the face is a pale mint color, sorta like Lily Munster. I like the glossy black eyes, and the whole sunken cheek bones look paired with the blood red lips. The "person" in the face chart looks kinda like a zombie flapper, don't you think? I like it, but I think I will keep my hair natural, which is wavy. I might add a little blush to make it look less scary for the kids, but you never know.
Little Red Riding Hood/ Who's Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf:

I think this could be tweaked depending on how you wish to portray little red riding hood, but I am going to try to experiment with some scar wax, and do the whole innocent face makeup, and then add some scratches, like she got scratched by the wolf. I'm going to make it look really deep and nasty.. but they will be small so they don't take away from the innocent factor of red riding hood. 

Well I hope you are getting as excited as I am about Halloween! And hopefully when I do these all, you will get inspired to do this for your Halloween costume/ makeup!
I hope that everyone up north that got hit by the hurricane/ tropical storm is okay, and your property and area is not to terribly damaged or even damaged at all! Have a great week, if I don't come back till next weekend!

A Long Awaited Inglot Swatch-Fest: Warms

 So this is going to be a rather quick post. I got through my first week of school, yay, and I am wiped out. I realized how long and over due this post was, considering that I got these Inglot eye shadows in.. May? I'm pretty sure it was may because i remember the first time I wore these eye shadow's it was the day of my AP European History Exam. Any who, so these pictures and swatches are over three months old. Not that bad, but still thought I would let you all know. I am going to try to put up some makeup look I create tonight because My family and I are going out in our city and having dinner at a restaurant called "The Collage". So that should be fun.

On to the eye shadows. So i ordered these shadows off of the Inglot USA website shortly after it launched. I got, I want t say around 15 eye shadows for 5$ a piece, which is almost robbery considering how amazing their products are. After a week they arrived which is relatively quick for my area, and they all we in perfect condition. They came in individual "boxes" for each shadow, and it was love at first swipe. I would say these are better than most eye shadows I have ever tried. I told myself I wish I never had bought my MAC eyeshadow because its almost as if these eye shadows laugh at the MAC ones. With good reason because these apply like butter, and are extremely pigmented. I got a few of the matte shadows, I wish I had gotten more though because I dabbed into each type of eyeshadow finish they carried and I would say the Mattes were by far the best. I will also mention these wee made in Poland, which means that they are extremely good quality. It is almost a rule, if you get some makeup product and it says "Made In Germany" you can almost guarantee that it is the highest quality, because most makeup companies have get their products from the same manufacturers as cheap drugstore brands. In Germany as far as makeup manufacturing goes, they have the the "upper class"manufacturing center compared to other places cosmetics are made. So Poland is right up there with Germany. Last thing I want to say about these are the amount of product you get per gram. 2.7 Grams per eyeshadow. When you compare that to MAC, where you get 1.8 grams for double the price.. why would you even bother to go but MAC anymore? Any sane person wouldn't. I hope you found this somewhat useful, or helpful :)

Another thing! I want to wish the best of luck to those in the projected path of hurricane Irene. I hope you guys are safe, and stay safe throughout the storm. Here in Northern Florida though it was 300 feet off shore we still had some pretty intense rain, and storms. I have gone through many hurricanes in my life, so i can imagine what some people up north and in New England are feeling having never to worry about hurricanes for the most part, and then getting the news that you have to evacuate your houses because a hurricane is coming! I heard the evacuation count is almost 2.3 million now! Stay safe guys and if you are sticking it out in your house, go into the center most room in your house with no windows ( try your pantry) or your basement if it is concrete. If you have neither of those go into your bathtub and take a mattress and put it over your body('s). Good luck once again!

Hard Candy Baked Blushes!

Hallo schöne menschen!! I literally just got back from vacation yesterday night, it was a long drive.. 13 miserable hours in a car that almost stopped in the middle of the road.. luckily we were in Jacksonville ( Just a BTW this was written a good two weeks ago... so yes I am alive). Any how, I had saved this draft ( Draft saved total of 3 times -__-) from before I left to quickly get up when i got back. These blushes don't have the best memories for me because when I got them all it was either 1. because while we were waiting for my beloved dog, buttercup, at the vet they told us to go grab lunch or go do something for about an hour. And 2. because the only way you can get your hands on these blushes is by stumbling your way into Walmart. To me Walmart is just the worlds biggest contradiction. I won't bore you with my Walmart rant, but I will say that those people who started "People of Walmart" were on to something.

On to the actual blushes. I first picked up the "Honeymoon" blush.. thinking it would be a nice highlighting color because it looks quite similar to MAC's mineralize duo blush in "Moon River". As I have both, I can say that this doesn't show up to great on my skin.. and maybe it's because I am so fair, and I just have a certain luminosity to my skin already ( Well shucks Megan, don't tut your own horn.).. But it wasn't that noticeable.. dry. Wetting the product makes for a nice glow to the skin. I think maybe this would work on medium to dark skin tones better. And I find myself hesitant to say that because I thought it would work on me and I am NW15. Definitely cooler skin tones would look best in this but, anyone could wear it and make it work. I should mention that I really like the packaging on these blushes, easy to open and close, its cute, I like the font ( I find fonts on products are more important that people come to think), and I like how pretty baked blushes look. They make you want all of them because each one is unique in the sense that they all have different veining.

Next blush I recieved as a gift. Some really nice woman on Makeup Alley sent me a care package after my dog died. She included this blush and a couple other things. I was beyond grateful for her kindness. But this blush is perfect for fair/light, and maybe even medium skin tones. It is a pinker/ rosier version of MAC's Dainty. Because it is baked it gives that nice glow to the skin that makes you just look very healthy. It has just the right pigmentation to it. Not to sheer, but not so pigmented you have to use a stippling brush and barely tap it in the pan. If you have a warmer skin tone this would be lovely for you, but if you are a fair skinned cool lady, like myself, it gives you a nice Rosy flush that complements what your natural flush should look like.

Today is Friday, and I would like to inform you all that school for me kicks back in on Monday. I have mixed feelings about it. I feel like this will be "My Year" so to speak. I have hardly any classes with people I dislike or need to steer clear of. I have good solid people in my core classes, and I am getting more self confidence as I get older, which is a good thing. As a recovering Anorexic and Bulimic, I am glad I am becoming more comfortable with my body. I also am working on a Fashion Blog and started to follow a bunch of really inspirational fashion bloggers. So yeah. That's all I wanted to say, hope you all have a great day!
