Spring is Coming!!!

As you all know, Spring is on its way! I was inspired by Nikkie Tutorials to do a blue/green/yellow look to get hyped for the upcoming season. Spring is going to be so fun for makeup. I'll be able to pull off some crazy looks and colors. This week, I've also had finals so I thought this look would help pull me out of my finals funk. It worked and I'm ready to take my Spanish test tomorrow!!! Word of advice, when studying for a huge test, don't focus all your time on just work. You need to be able to squeeze breaks in for creative stuff or even just Facebook time. You won't get so tense. That is what I have realized after having studied for finals this year and thought I would share it with you all, even if some of you may be finished with school. Anywho, enough of my rambling! Here's the look!

Products Used:
-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper
-MAC Steamy
-NYX Jumbo Pencil in Baby Blue and Rocky Mountain Green
-BH Cosmetics 88 Standard Shimmer Palette
-Sleek Oh So Special Palette (matte black)
-Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Liner in Siren
-MAC False Lashes Mascara

Liebster Blog Award

The idea of the Liebster blog award is to give new bloggers with fewer than 200 followers a chance at getting their name out there. The rules that apply are as follows: 

1. Thank your nominator/s and link back their blog/s: Erica J. Thank you so much!
2. Select & reveal your five chosen blogs with fewer than 200 followers. 
3. Advise your chosen blogs of their nomination via a comment on their blog. 
4. Copy and paste the award onto your own blog. 
5. Request that your award nominees then forward it on to their own chosen bloggers.

Happy Valentines Day!

To anyone celebrating, either with someone or not, I hope you all have an amazing Valentine's Day! I put together a quick look for you just as a thank you for sticking around this year and I really appreciate it. I've always really loved Valentine's Day. It might be the fact that my birthday is just three days off and I get really pumped for that. Anyways, everyone have a fan-freaking-tabulous day/(my birthday)week!

And I'm Back... Again Product Overview/Super Bowl Look

As the title suggests, I am back to my blogging ways. I had a couple stressful weeks recently and just didn't even have the energy to blog. But fret no longer (because I know you were) I am here! So, (enough of my big-headed-ness) to start this post off, I wanted to share a few pics of my most recent purchase. There has been a lot of hype about this product lately, so when I was at my Target the other day, I thought I would try it out. It is Maybelline Color Tattoo in Painted Purple. Although I have not yet done a look with it, you can expect to see it in my "Products Used" section soon.

Left; product alone, Right; product layered with a purple shadow from my BH palette, Top; shadow alone.

As you can see, it sure adds a lot of extra pow to your color, which is always good. I haven't had much time with this product really to say too much about it, but I do like what I see just from swatching it.

And, I thought I would show you all a quick peek at my Super Bowl look from yesterday.
Nothing too special, but I thought it was fun! I have a lot planned for my blog, so get pumped everyone! I can tell you I recently received an award called the Liebster Award which I will tell you more about very soon. It is something I need to work on and will probably be my next post. I am super excited to be working on my blog again after my two week (or so) break! Thank you for sticking around.
