Turquoise + Black Look && NOTD (Pardon my forehead...)

So, I've been MIA for a minute. No posts, no comments-- nothing.
That is chiefly because, with the start of the new year, came much B.S.
So, I've had a lot of random things to deal with since Jan. 1st-- even New Years was wack... I fell asleep at 11pm, and woke up because I heard fireworks @ Lenox Mall lol.

Fun stuff.

Anyway, I'm back. I have some time now, therein, I will be catching up on commenting :)

Here's a look I did today. Got really bored, and felt like using one of my X-Mas presents.

It's a huge kit, made by Markwin's International. They are the same company who makes Wet&Wild and Black Radiance. Have no idea where my mom found this.

But here is the look.
And I couldn't find one or two pictures that I liked of it, so-- naturally-- here's all of them.

Wow, my trash in the background... thats cute :)

Yeah, couldn't pick just one.
Here is what I used.

Light Blue (Markwin's) - Whole Lid
FlipSide (Urban Decay) - Half Lid/Lower Lashline
Lagoon (Smashbox) - Outer Corner
Shimmering Onyx (CoverGirl) - Outer V.
HiP Black Creme Liner
Maybelline Colossal Lash

undereye concealer (read below)
MAC Mineralized Satinfinish Foundation (NC42)
CoverGirl TruBlend Powder (Translucent Medium)
HiP Creme Blush (Blushing 999)

Yep, like it? One thing about that Smashbox mess... its pretty much powder. Barely any color payoff. And they cost more than MAC, so I figured better quality? Wrooong. Maybe it's just this color, I dunno...

Anyway. Here's another random picture of a look I did the night Miss V. came back from Iraq (yaaaay! Btw :). I used my 120 palette, and some HiP Shadow (forget which one), and their crayon (in the tan color). I didn't really like this at all. I think I'm too yellow for the red looks lol.

Yeah, gross lol. Looks like fish eyes.
Anyway. I said read below for the new concealer I had found that actually covers up my undereye circles. I had actually bought it way back when I worked at Sally's-- but just started using it.

It's the "Yellow" concealer by Palladio. It's great-- if you have terrible undereye issues like I do-- try it. Its around 4 dollars, I think.

Lastly. Some nails.

Some Barbie Pink polish from China Glaze in "Make An Entrance".
