NOTD:Eyeko posh polish



I'm just popping by to say hello and wish everyone a great week. I HATE school at the moment and I cannot wait till its over.............seriously I cannot remember the last time I woke up without a headache.
I will not bore you with my rant, if you look to the right, you will see a coupon for EYEKO (enter the code at checkout) if you decide to purchase from them :).

I actually  kinda/sorta like the colour considering the fact that i'm not a taupe lover or maybe it just suits my miserable mood.

Make-up:China blue—Thursday



This look did not turn out the way I imagined it in my head #FAIL. I'm really enjoying this "challenge" because I'm learning from my mistakes (10 points for me). When I think of looks to do, I expect it to turn out exactly the way I see it in my head and it frustrates me when it turns out wrong but O WELL ......I can always try again.

 Success is not built on success. It's built on failure. It's built on frustration. Sometimes its built on catastrophe~Sumner Redstone

People who fail to achieve their goals usually get stopped by frustration. They allow frustration to keep them from taking the necessary actions that would support them in achieving their desire. You get through this roadblock by plowing through frustration, taking each setback as feedback you can learn from, and pushing ahead. I doubt you'll find many successful people who have not experienced this. All successful people learn that success is buried on the other side of frustration.~Anthony Robbins

Make-up:Old grapes—Wednesday






My very sexy face lol 

Ok I have another story for you ladies.....I originally had plans to record this look but my plan failed.So this is me thinking I did not have class till 13:15pm (13:15pm is actually when the class ends #smh) but at 11:00am my friend called asking if I was ready for class (Insert scream/confused face #huh) by the way class was for 11:15am....its so so funny because I had only one eye make-up done and it takes atleast 7mins walk to campus........since it was already 11:05 I quickly did my undone eye + mascara this time around but guess what... I FORGOT TO FILL IN MY BROWZ LOL.Thankfully I wore a coat with a huge widow hood to cover my face on my way to class.

I dropped my bag in class,said HELLO to my professor (I had to let him know I was around) grabbed my make-up purse and ran to the LOO to sort out the mess. THE END 


lol my browz were uneven but what the heck....I was going home right after my class,no point fixing it.

Make-up FAIL:Fruit bowl





I recorded a tutorial for this look but I will not be posting it on youtube because its crap + I was not excited about the editing . It will bother me so much if I put up a tutorial and I was not totally happy with it. I hope the pictures at least inspire you. 

Face
Laura Mercier creme smooth foundation
Notable blush-Mac

Eyes
Makeup forever flash colour palette-Yellow
                                                        Leaf green
                                                       Bright blue+Red=purple 

Ben Nye eyeshadow- Sun yellow (Shimmery yellow)
                                   Jade (Shimmery green)
                                  Amethyst (Shimmery deep purple)
                                  Cosmic Violet (Shimmery light purple)

Benefit-Bad girl lash mascara 

Makeup forever-Eyebrow corrector #3

Lips

Makeup forever Lab Shine gloss-S22

I used the MUFE flash colour palette as a base for eyeshadows (experimenting). The colour base gave the eyeshadows that extra pop without creasing. I'm going to experiment more with the flash colours before I post a review on it but so far I like it.

IMATS Damage ;)

Finally the internet decided to behave, I'm sure your all tired of just looking at pictures and want to know what I got from the IMATS. Like I said in the video I posted about my experience, I really enjoyed my day plus I got to spend it with people who understood my excitement. I was a bit surprised when I watched other youtube videos about the IMATS ( some of them thought it was boring and YADA YADA YADA) but after I put on my inspector gadget hat, it was obvious these girls did not understand/ appreciate the make up world...Personally if your not borderline crazy about make-up/ a make-up rehab candidate please avoid  attending such events (we could do with the extra space).

I only got to to attend KJB (Kevin James Bennett) talk, OK PAUSE! If your make-up artist/junkie and you do not know who KJB is please click KJB wedsite KJB site INMYKIT. So I have provided you you links please please click on them especially if your a make-up artist. As I was saying Kevin the nutter was amazing his talk was the truth (AMEN),he did not sugar coat anything and gave good tips.He did a twiggy inspired look which was awesomeeeeeeeeeeee and between I recorded the whole thing #hehe.

I know there seems to be a lot of make-up but I promise its not as bad as it looks.....Go to Debs blog,trust me I was good.
