Cleopatra-esque

Howdy fellow bloggers & guests! It's been another hot minute since I last posted! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones. ;)

I've been wanting to film another makeup tutorial but unfortunately I always seem to get distracted by the little ones. =T

I don't normally use black eyeshadow to fill in my brows, nor do I fill them in this way, but it was best for this particular look. The lip color is more accurate in the first photo and wasn't frosty and bright like the second one. I'm a little rusty in cutting the crease. I need to work on that a little more, I think I went a little too high with the crease.



I was inspired by this photo of cleopatra-style makeup.


This would've been great as a Halloween look. This was really fun to do and I hope guys like this. =)

I can't believe Turkey Day came and went and we now have 30 days left of 2010! How crazy is that?! Did you ladies camp out on Black Friday to get some good deals? I was too scared to go lol! I've heard too many stories of people getting run over and not to mention seriously injured. If you didn't do any Black Friday shopping, did you get a chance to snag some Cyber Monday deals? Are you all ready for Christmas? I sure am! I love the holiday season. ;)

P.S. Just want to thank ALL of my blog followers! You all are amazing! ;) I'm planning on doing a giveaway very soon, so stay tuned! Also, please visit my Facebook Page and click the 'Like' button for me. I would sincerely appreciate it. To those who have already done so, Thank you so much! =)
