Oh my, its been a long time since I posted.  I have finished classes at Lia Schorr Institute.  I really loved going to class and learning about makeup application.  I am still working at being a better makeup artist.  I am grabbing all of my friends to be models for me to practice on!

I am not gone

Hi! I just wanted to post an update.  I haven't thrown in the towel yet!  Currently life is pretty hectic to say the least.  Work sucks and has become so draining. Who's job isn't though. I like am sure many others are being asked to do twice as much with half the time and staff.  Luckily for me there is a light at the end of the tunnel even though its still over a month possibly two away. 

I decided also to make the jump and get some formal training for MakeUp Artistry.  I am currently attending Lia Schorr's Makeup School in New York on the weekends.  Since I am base out of the South Jersey area it makes for a long day in travel time alone.  I am so excited though traveling back and forth into the city and meeting all of these wonderful ladies in my class. It has been so fun it has been keeping me going when I want to pull my hair out with work.  The positivity that these ladies have brought to my life is awesome.  I forgot that great comrade that you get with finding a group of people who have the same goal in mind.

Anyway, I just wanted to drop you all a note and let you know I am not gone, I am trying to better myself so that I can then better my blog and more importantly my skills!

Thank you for looking,
Love Mo

Unii Palette

Every time I hit a 10 pound loss in my goal to get to a total weight loss of 150 lbs I get my self a little treat.

Yeah its gonna be a lots of treats, but so what why not.

I have a MAC palette for eye shadows and its kinda lacking to say it nicely.  Yeah it holds the shadows, its thin and holds quite a few.

I had seen it on Makeup Geek's website and seen many a review about it so when I hit a particularly troublesome ten pound mark I set to ordering.

A wink and a prayer

So I went into the drugstore hoping to get a cheaper mascara.  I love plush lash from MAC. I know its over priced for a mascara you have to chuck in the trash in 3 months but it separates and gives me volumes.  So I know there are lots of girls and some boys that swear by the mascara they get at the drugstore. 

So I picked this up hoping that I would be able to replaced plush lash.

Its was off to a good start with a cool looking mascara wand.
I had high hopes for this one.  It had gotten some good reviews.  I just don't care for it.  It clumps on me like nobody's business.  Each time I have used it I have to go thru my lashes with an eyebrow comb to break up the clumps.

I would not recommend this at all.

I guess I will have to scope out another one. 

Thanks for looking,

Back to MAC Haul

I depotted a bunch of my MAC lipsticks and eye shadows.  So that gave me quite a bit to go back to MAC.

So without further ado or whatever its called

I picked up some staples, Vanilla eyeshadow, Russian Red and Diva. I have vanilla pigment already but the pan is much easier and I am not that great a pressing my pigments into shadows.
From Left to right, Diva, vanilla then Russian Red.
You can barely see the vanilla in between the two reds but its there.  I just swatched it over bare skin.

Love the back to MAC program!

Thanks for looking!

Reserve yourself

Well not really.  I think of it more like your reserve wine.  You know the kind you always have on hand for when something good happens.  If you pick your poison and it isn't alcohol maybe try this OPI polish.

Its one of the designer series and a pain in the backside to find.  I only seem to find it at Ulta and only very limited shades.

Its a really georgous shade of pink. 

Check it out. So pretty! Sparkles!

Thank you for looking,
Love Mo!

Airy like a Farie

Yeah, I finally fell into the hype.  Not that it is that surprising but its worth the hype. 
Its Rimmel's Airy Fairy #70. 
I have to admit, I was quite surprised how well this shade works.  For me its like my lips but better.
Here it is above without flash below with flash.
I have fairly pigmented lips which usually work fine with a bit of gloss.  I do have some scars from piercings so its nice to have a lipstick that evens out the color.
I picked this up at Ulta with a coupon.  So it was pretty cheap.  Gotta love those coupons!

Thanks for looking!
Love, Mo
