This has nothing to do with anything but I wanted to say that I hate cleaning toilet bowls. Disgusting! Especially since I live with four gentlemen. I don't know. No matter how much they say "I aim for the water", I can't help but think that maybe when they start the sprinklers, they forget where they are or they start daydreaming or something. So irritating.
So first up is Sally Hansen's Shea Butter Rapid Finish. Dries polish within 30 seconds. I recieved this product from a friend a while ago and when it ran low I had to stock up. It's perfect for polishing on the run. I have a bad habit of polishing as soon as everyone is ready to head out the door, so this saves me a little scolding. Try this out, $5.99 at Target, a bit more at Duane Reade and Rite Aide.
Sticking with Sally Hansen, I picked up the Chocolate Chiffon from her Diamond Collection. I've been wanting a brown color for a long time. I think it's great for this time of year, don't you? It has a little burgundy undertone but it's still cool. Sis wanted to get in the picture with her ugly ring. I'm just hating. The color she has on is Sunset Blvd. by Avalon. Pretty right? Look closely, you can see her wart on her thumb...ewww. She's trying to get rid of it for the wedding. We bought wart remover this weekend :).
Close up of the color. Muah, simply gorg.
Now time for the big finale...
Isn't the cover beautiful? I picked it up on Sunday afternoon to just skim through, of course I ended up reading the thing, cover to cover. It is definitely an easy read. Great pictures, great guide on applications. The book is basically divided into two sections. The first part is specifically for beginners. BB goes through eqiupment that you'd need. Then she has a great section on skincare and how your lifestyle affects your skin. Getting specific she explains how to put on a face (concealer/corrector, foundation, etc.), how to apply lip color, eye color all the while differentiating between different types of skin (dry/oily, light /dark). Chapter 7 is a Ten- Step Guide to Perfect Makeup, easy, uncomplicated, and very natural in results. It's BB, of course it's natural. Chapter 8 which is my favorite is entitled Special Makeup Applications. So it includes looks for weddings, going out at night, and looks for different ethnicities.
If I was a working woman I would definitely spend the $32.00 on this manual. It is very precise, very informative, you can tell that a lot of work went into the production. The pictures, once again were great, she has pics showing the step by step process on the models.
I will definitely be referencing this book when I am stuck on a look, want to try something new and when it comes time for me to play make artist for my sis at her wedding.
Until next time,
