So, it's been a busy week, but since I have the afternoon off, I decided now would be the time to update. I mentioned my blanket that I've been chrocheting forever in my last post. I took a picture of it. What do you think??

I decided to do a makeup tutorial through pictures.. anyone who knows me knows I LOVE makeup, and I have an addiction to purchasing makeup.. and since I'm on a budget, I have found a lot of "dupes" for high-end makeup.. one brand that is amazing is surprisingly Wet n' Wild. So below is a very affordable "natural eye" routine, using Wet n' Wild eyeshadow, amongst other brands.

Starting with my eyebrows, I first fill the with them with ELF's Eyebrow Filler and Lifter. I then use an angled brow brush with Maybelline's Eyebrow Powder to finish filling them and solidifying the shape.

The brushes I use (from left to right) are an angled eyeshadow brush, a contour brush, a blending brush, and a small domed shadow brush. The eye products I used are Two Faced Shadow Insurance primer, Wet n' Wild Walking n Eggshells, NYC Waterproof Eyeliner in black, ELF's Liquid Eyeliner in black, and L'Oreal (I think) Voluminous False Fiber Lashes in black.

 Step One: Using your angled eyeshadow brush, apply the champagne color from the Walking on Eggshells palette to the eyelid.
Step Two: With your contour brush, apply the brown color to the crease, extending upwards slightly. Blend the line out with a blending brush.
Step Three: Using the small domed shadow brush, apply the highlight to your brow bone and in the corner of your eyes.
Step Four: With ELF's Liquid Eyeliner, apply to the top lid, winging out the corners. Apply NYC Eyeliner Pencil under the outer corner of your bottom lashes, and along the entire waterline.
Step Five: Finish it off with your favorite voluminous mascara.

Finally, apply a deep maroon color. I used bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie in Dare Devil.I didn't apply it as dark as it can be.. The fact that it can go light or dark really makes me like this color.

The finished look <3
I also wanted to show off my cute new table that I placed next to my front door, yanno.. the kind  the fits a lamp, a dish for keys, and the purse. 

  Pretty artsy, eh? It was a hand-me-down I couldn't resist.
Well that's all for today. Hope you enjoy. <3
