Hot Off the Presses Part 7

It's that time again!  Swatches of three hand-pressed shadows by yours truly.

As I type this, I'm getting pigment all over my keyboard, because I swatched these about 20 minutes ago.  This is why we can't have nice things.

It was a lovely night filled with makeup tips, a fantastic dinner, and great company.

Lisa's Cosmetics Warehouse Sale: Fall 2015 + Haul

I just got back from the Lisa's Cosmetics warehouse sale, and I took lots of pictures to share!

This year sale is located in Markham, on 135 Commerce Valley Drive East, in Markham, Ontario.  I went right at 12:30 pm, and there was tons of parking and no lineup to get in (on my way out, around 2:45 pm, it was much busier - less parking, and a lineup in the building).  Click through for tons of pictures!

Face of the Day - Everyday Sparkle

Today I am sharing my current go-to look.  It seems like lately I've had a new go-to look, which I stick to for about a week, then switch it up at the beginning of the next week.

This one features the hands-down best sparkly product I have ever used - it's not too "in-your-face", so it's perfect for an everyday look.

#ManiMonday - Black Roses

Happy #ManiMonday, friends!  I wish I could do more Mani Monday posts, but I am in the process of growing out my claws, and my index & middle finger nails keep breaking!  Grrrr *shakes fist*.  Fun fact: Right after I took these photos, I had a small break on my index finger nail.

Face of the Day: Fun with Falsies finally happened.  I wore falsies for the first time today.  It was time.  Although I didn't apply them perfectly, I'm all about sharing my adventures in makeup with you - and that includes sharing times when  it didn't turn out 100% on point.  Don't get me wrong, I'm still happy with this look, and this won't be the last time that I wear falsies, I just wanted to document the beginning phases of the learning process, because we all have to start somewhere.

As I look at myself in the picture, all gigantic & starting into my own soul, I can definitely see some area that I need to focus on, next time I wear falsies.  Basically, this is more of a "note to self" post.  Details on what I was sporting in this look....
