Don't hate me!

I know I JUST switched to Blogger, but I really can't deal with this not being able to reply to comments thing. I like being able to talk back and forth with sadly this is not the site for me. Here is the link to my new livejournal, and since a TON of people have LJ hopefully you guys can come and be my friend!

Twilight, Twitter, istardom and other such nonsense.

So, I got mine and John's Twilight tickets tonight. I am SO excited for Thursday night, it's not even funny. I'll try to whip up something spiffy in the makeup department for the movie, but I dunno. I might just end up doing vampire bites on my neck again like Halloween. And, given the small town that we live in, it'll probably get me on the news for being a psychotic fan. You think I'm joking...

Also, I made a Twitter a couple months ago and just..forgot about it. So Cora mentioned looking at something on there, and I was like oh, wow, I should update that. So maybe my new obsession will be Twittering at all hours of the day. If you guys wanna follow me on there, my link is HERE. I signed up on that istardom website, too, just for the fun of if you guys are on there and want to become a 'fan' of mine, the link to that is HERE.

I'm really unhappy with my makeup setup and overall collection right now. I honestly have too much that isn't being used and I think it's ridiculous. So maybe I'll pull out all the stuff I'm not using at all and sell it or something, I dunno. If I do decide to, I'll post the sale here in case someone is interested, but it'll probably be me selling the whole lot of it instead of picking and choosing. Anyway, I hope you're all having a beautiful weekend, and I hope it's not pouring the rain nonstop like it is here!

OH! PS : Do you guys know how to reply to comments on here? I know that sounds REALLY stupid, but the only thing I can figure is if I leave a comment on it or something..but then you guys wouldn't see my reply. Until I figure that out, I just wanna thank everyone for the comments and following me!

Updates and such.

Hey guys. If you've seen my latest video, you probably came here to find out a little bit more about everything, so here goes.

I've been thinking about quitting youtube for a while now, and I think I'm not so much *quitting* as I am moving to blogger. It's a not very easy to apply your makeup while worrying if the camera is getting everything, trying to finish in under ten minutes and talk the whole time. Plus, at least for me personally, my makeup turns out better when I do both eyes at the same time. Not to mention the fact that I don't record every single time I wear makeup, and this way I can just snap a few pictures if I like the result and tell you guys what it is.

So, in addition to my switch to blogger I'm going to be talking about more than just makeup related stuff. I was going to start making a few more random videos, especially about books that I'm reading, so now you'll be able to find all of that here. I'll also do some mini hauls or product reviews if the mood strikes me. So all in all, I think it's a good time to make the switch from youtube to blogger. That said, I'll probably still make the occasional video for certain things. It mostly just depends on how much time I have, really. Typing up a short blog and posting some pictures is much less time consuming than filming a video, taking pictures, editing the video, uploading the video and then typing up everything.

I really wanna thank all of you guys that follow me here. I can't believe I ever made it to over 1,000 subscribers on youtube and it really means alot to me. You guys are the best, seriously.

Happy Halloween!

So, both of these looks were so easy it hurts. I really am sorry I didn't have them out sooner, but my WMM decided to hate me and not work at ALL yesterday. Better late than never, right? Anyway, on to the fun stuff.

For Johns easy zombie look I used all matte stuff. Light face powder, dark brown, burgandy, bright blue and green eyeshadows everywhere. Mixing them all together was the key to getting that lovely undead look that everyone adores. Har har.

For my vampire victim look I used HiP paint in Commanding, MACs Malt, Knight Divine and Shroom eyeshadows for my eyes, some Wet n Wild liquid liner and Lash Blast. I also applied some crazy falsies that I found at Wal-Mart (they were too long and had to be trimmed, I used the little snips that would have gone in the trash otherwise). On my lips is Viva Glam I.

All of our wounds are HiP paint in Commanding topped with a burgandy eyeshadow and fake blood.

Happy Halloween!

Dramatic Halloween inspired look!

I used :

NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk (base)

MAC Pigment in Off the Radar (lid)

MAC Pigment in Dark Soul (crease)

Ben Nye Eyeshadow in Amethyst (crease)

Ben Nye Eyeshadow in Ice (highlight)

Wet 'n Wild Liquid Eyeliner

MAC Plush Lash Mascara

MAC Lipstick in Dark Side


Ok, so I've been gone for a while, I know. Things have been a little crazy in "real life", and after everything settled down John and I got a new Kodak 14MP camera as an early Christmas present. I was waiting for it to get here to film any videos because it has HQ video, but alas..I went through three sets of batteries filming an eight minute video! Sooo, we sent that one back and we're going to try a Canon this time. It should be here at the end of this week or early next week, so I'm pretty excited. Cross your fingers for us! I'll post links at the end of this post to both cameras just in case anyone wants to know.

So, other than that..I had a terrible relapse. Now we all know I broke up with MAC, but I had to return some stuff and apparently their return policy has changed and I was past the 30 day limit. My options were recieving a gift card in the mail or just exchanging stuff, so I figured I might as well exchange it. So, does that REALLY count? heheh
Anyway, here's what I got :

Soft and Gentle MSF, Malt eyeshadow & Shale eyeshadow

I honestly recommend the MSF, but it is VERY shimmery, so if you do try it out just use a teeny tiny bit or else it will look like a shimmerbomb went off on your face! I haven't really played with the eyeshadows yet, but so far I don't think they're the greatest thing ever.

Now for the Kodak camera. The pictures were alright after lots of playing around with the settings, but honestly not what I expected 14MP to deliver at ALL. The videos were AMAZINGLY crisp, but like I said..three sets of batteries in eight minutes is just silly.

Here's the Canon we just ordered. I've had my heart set on it for a few months now, especially knowing how wonderful Canons usually are. After I've tried it out I'll post a little update about it in case maybe some of you are in the market for a new camera!

First post!

Well, you know if Cora did it I had to. So here I am..I thought it would be a good way to give little updates when I don't want to make a video, and post pictures of my looks and all of that fun stuff. So be sure to check back often and keep an eye out for updates and other random stuff I put on here :D
