Eye Shadow, Primer & MakeUp Oh my

I've been getting into makeup and hair like never before.

I've always really paid attention to clothes and stuff but makeup has never been my thing...but I've been getting into it lately.

I don't really have much make up...which means I've assembled a wishlist of sorts...things I can afford and will get eventually, and things that are...umm...lets just say way out of my price (Unless of course I really, really want to splurge.

So I'll start off with the shorter list...the list of things that I highly doubt I will ever buy unless I find some really epic sale (online considering I haven't physically been shopping in over a year...).

The first is a primer from Fresh.

Now, I've never used a primer, but I really want to try one because they're supposed to really help your makeup stay on. Which is something I have a hard time with because my skin is combination (leaning more towards oily) and makeup doesn't stay on so well.

I've been hearing lots of rave reviews for their Rose Freshface Primer.

Second in the out-of-my-price-range category is a liquid eyeshadow from Bare Escentuals that comes in this interesting little bottle/applicator...yes its the High Shine Eye Color.
I've learned that my eyes pretty much always look just brown, but when you look really close there's some really cool green and flecks of gold and bronzy-gold colors really bring the other colors in my eyes out.
Which makes this color awesome...and I think the applicator is cool too...half of what caught my eye.

Third in the category is an eyeshadow from Urban Decay that I think just looks ah-mazing.
The Urban Decay Stardust eyeshadow.

The final item in the out-of-my-price-range-category would have to be something I have heard rave reviews about as well...the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner.

Now, a couple of products that I've heard rave reviews about (as well as them being much more within my price range) are two mascaras...

The Lo'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes**...

And...Maybelline New York Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara**

I think this is the one I might just choose out of the two because it being waterproof = good for summer oh yah.

**note** the link goes to WalMart...which I happen to not shop from for various reasons...unless absolutely unavoidable...

Now, keeping that in mind...the coming summer I mean, I've had my eye on Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 Powder Foundation.

I've heard great things about this. Because its simple and easy to apply as well as SPF 50 great for summer!

Keeping with the foundation aspect of makeup I've also been hearing that this lovely new foundation from L'Oreal is ah-mazing.
L'Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle

And finally to end out my wishlist is something that I rather need seeing as I only have a couple brushes...well, it's just about every brush from EcoTools. haha

And so that is my probably not much ever going to happen but maybe some of it is possible wishlist ;-) that I seem unable to have decided on a title for...sorry boys ;-) but there wasn't anyway this post could avoid being girly! haha

Hope you're all having a good week, I'm busy working!

Much, Much To Do!

Just a quick post to update everyone!

District Fine Arts Festival is next week for me...and so that means I'll be goin' on my journey!

SO much fun, I absolutely cannot wait!

God has provided so much for me to be able to attend and I'm looking forward to it!

I still need to finalize and perfect my t-shirt design entry as well as pick out a picture for my photography entry...oh yes, and finishing memorizing my spoken word presentation would probably be a good idea as well!

SO much to do and so little time!

Not to mention I have web design to catch up on (from the week I was dreadfully ill) so not only am I spending my spring break (this week) getting ready for Fine Arts and catching up on web design assignments but I'm also painting the church!

I agreed to help out with some odd jobs since the church is providing for my trip to FA and so I'm starting today (because I couldn't earlier from other work that was being done and the supplies not being ready).

So I'm all in a rush...and kind of stressing but I know I'll make it through somehow! ( least my friends have convinced me of that, you guys are know who you are ;)

Oh and I'm not painting the outside of the church...just the basement...If anyone was wondering.

And so it is that I must bid you all adieu for there is much, much to do!

Hoping you're all having a wonderful week, whether on vacation, at work or in school...
