Item of the Week

Eye Shadow for Dummies

I love makeup, again, who doesn't? Thing is I'm not an expert at the whole applying process. Which is the reason I always sport the natural look, you know a bit of foundation, some lip balm, mascara and blush. There's proof here that I don't wear eye shadow.  Although, I admit I do love how it looks on me, and I always feel instantly glam when I wear it.

Story is that I was just flicking through a mag and I saw this: Maybelline Expert Wear Eye Shadow Quads.

I thought, I love this!! I mean, it's perfect! I can do the smokey eye thing, YAY! So I went to Walgreens, of course, and there they were on a pretty display and everything just waiting for me. I purchased the Emerald Smokes (the green instead of the purple). They also had an actual, black one, but I think that is too dangerous for me, at least for now.
Why do I love this so much? Well, as you can see on the picture above, each of the shadows tells you where it goes! They say: lid, crease, brow bone, and outer corner. After a few uses, I'm pretty sure you won't be able to see them, but I'm pretty sure you will have it all mastered by then.
Here's the ad with the black tones.
I'm loving ads lately, aren't I? Anyways, here are some pics of me wearing the eyeshadow, for the very first time. I'm wondering why nobody had done this before. I would be a pro by now. Well done Maybelline!

Pics thaken at 7:00 AM. Yes, I got up at 6 in the morning so that I could do my makeup for my photo shoot. I guess you can call this a sneak peek.
