Wet n Wild Limited Edition Fauna Collection

Happy Saturday everyone! Today I went to CVS and just could not pass up this new limited edition collection from Wet N Wild! This particular set is called Fauna but they also had another set called Flora. The Flora had brighter colors in it, including an orange eye shadow. It was pretty, but I decided this one was more me. The set includes a limited edtion eye shadow trio called Fauna, along with a blush, glassy gloss lip gloss, and fast dry nail polish. All of this was only $4.99!! You can't beat that considering normally one of their eye trios are regularly 2.99.

Here's what the kit set looks like in the box. On the back it says: "Enter our lush gardens of beauty, fantasy, and desire. You'll be enveloped in a bouquet of flourishing colors that evoke Spring's infinite possibilities. In our wild, untamed world of Fauna, the femme fatale is freed to seduce with her rose-thorn cheeks, dark bold eyes, poisonous petal lips, and mysteriously colored nails."

 The colors on these eye shadows are your typical amazing wet n wild quality! The formula is amazing and the color pigmentation is great! :)

This blush is from wet n wild's color icon line. It is number 831E, Pearlescent Pink.

Here's a swatch of the Glassy Gloss in number 311A, Glass Confusion. It's a light pink sparkly color that looks absolutely gorgeous on the lips! I love the formula. It's not too sticky but it lasts on your lips. :)

The nail polish is from their Fast Dry line in the color 227C, Teal or No Teal. Cute for spring!

Wedding Makeup Do's and Don'ts

Hi everybody! It's already March and spring is quickly approaching. Now, I don't know about you guys but when I think spring, I think of weddings! Spring is a beautiful time for a wedding while all the flowers are in bloom. I don't know if any of you are planning on a wedding soon or not, but maybe you know someone who is and you can share these tips!

The Do's
~Do make sure that you take part in a makeup trial.
~Do get good rest! It's important that you get a good night's sleep before the big day!
~Do drink lots of water leading up to the big day!
~Do apply moisturizer to the skin.
~Do make sure you purchase a new mascara and try it out a few days before hand.

The Don'ts...
~Don't go to the tanning bed before the wedding! You don't want to take the risk of something going wrong. You want to have that effortless beauty about you...not look like an orange. A self-tanner could be a good alternative.
~Don't over do your eye makeup. Keep it clean and simple. It will put more focus on your eyes.
~Don't try out new eye makeup that you haven't used before. You want to be sure of all your products on the big day.
~Don't use any kind of product, especially eye shadow that has a shimmer or frosted finish. It will reflect in any pictures that are taken.
~Don't wear false eyelashes. You have to be totally sure that you are comfortable in them and that they won't fall off!!!

Now, I know this isn't a wedding dress, but I wanted to give you guys a preview of my prom dress. These tips could be used for prom and other special dress up events as well. Hope you enjoy! Here's my dress:)

~More storms again! It's only March and this weather is already crazy!
~The new Buick Merano commercial cracks me up. I love the part where the monks sing about the dry cleaners.
~UK is playing tonight in the NCAA tournament. Good luck guys. Go WILDCATS!!!

Why have I been gone?

Hey everyone, I just wanted to write you a quick little note explaining why you haven't seen anything posted lately. My aunt has been very sick and in the hospital for quite some time. She passed away a couple of days ago and I will be going to the funeral in the morning. Expect to see new posts sometime next week. Thank you for continuing to follow and support me.

Lasting Finish Rimmel Lipstick by Kate Moss!

Hey everybody, I hope you're having a great weekend! We had some crazy weather here yesterday, a lot of tornadoes in the area, but thank goodness we are okay!

Today I saw an ad in a magazine advertising Kate Moss' new lipstick and when I went to ULTA I saw it and had to get it! It's in the shade 01, the color Kate was wearing in the advertisement. Here's what it looks like. 

I took this picture myself. I'm really proud of how it turned out! :)

I was kind of scared to try this. I am a little intimidated by red lipstick, but I wanted to do a red lip look with my white prom dress, so I figured this would be a good shade to try. Turns out I really like it guys! It's totally matte, no shimmer at all. It's smooth and creamy, a total bombshell lipstick. Haha. I definitely would recommend this to anyone looking for a great red lipstick. I got it at ULTA for $5.19, but I am sure you can find this at Wal-mart or any drugstore, maybe cheaper.

~Went to Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant to eat today...it was awesome!
~Baked chocolate chip cookies. Mmmm (:
~Getting my wardrobe ready for summer! Can't wait. 
~Thankful for my wonderful friends! Michael's always there when I need him. :)
