Day Off!

Hi guys, hope everything is well! I have the day off, which means Jen and I are going to the Padres game today against Minnesota! Plus it's a day game, so hopefully I'll be able to catch up on the sun that I've been so missing!

Well, here on CaLucky, I like to cover basic information about makeup and such, since there seems to be little to none of this material out there. So, I've decided to come up with a category known as...

This week's question is, "What is a Makeup Haul?"

Many blogs and beauty sites mention this, so I decided to go on Yahoo! for answers. There, Jordan D said, "What they've bought or otherwise "acquired" recently, maybe on ebay or through swaps as well as buying." My favorite answer was from Skyler, which was "When they go out and buy a shitload of makeup. :)"

So I hoped that answered your question! Feel free to submit any sort of question you may need answering, it's all anonymous anyway! ♥

hi guys it's been a while!! father's day weekend was so hectic at work, ack. well, my bf's good friends invited us over to watch the laker game (against the celtics which we BOMBED in--we if you are rooting for LA), so went with a multicolor look.

i used:
HIP pigment in Valiant, mixed with NYX Ultra Pearl Purple Pearl for lower lid (applied wet!)
NYX eyeshadow in Atlantic for out lower lid
CoverGirl eyeshdadow in Aqua Paradise
NYX ultra Pearl in Nude Pearl
NYC mineral Eyeliner in Black

now i am aware of *proper* makeup etiquette in regards to the care of brushes. HOWEVER, lots of times i'm just in a HELLA hurry and can't help but use the top of my hand as a replacement sink. check it out:

grody huh? haha!

anyways, i love to use multicolor looks because it shows off my still new ability to blend, but also i think is kind of like coloring a picture. personally, i own a few coloring books, as well as the 100+ crayola crayon collection. i LOVE LOVE colors, and can't get enough of them. i design web layouts as well, as my major is computer science, so anyone want anything, just holler! gotta go to sleep now, but have a good night, and until tomorrow!

[EDIT:] later that night, i discovered that my puppy girl had chewed this headbeand to absolute pieces, so boo! :(

Sunrise Eyes

It's not a very dramatic look, PLUS this is what it looked like after 5 consecutive hours of serving. I used this little trio that CoverGirl made under the Eye Enhancers line. It has:
First Light on inner lid
Golden Sunrise on middle lid
Morning Cocoa on outer lid.
[EDIT]: OMG only until after I had posted this did I realized how haggard I looked in the video (& that my shirt was stained!). So apologies for that. ♥

Summer Look & Eyeshadow Display Shelves

Hi guys! Long time no write! I've been super busy working every day at Outback! I can't believe it, my it's my first day off in 13 days. Ugh. Well, this morning, it was so lovely out, I decided to wear my new Billabong dress, and of course wear matching makeup with it, & took the pups out in the yard to play while I read a book. Here's my look:

I used: NYX Ultra Peal Mania in Lime Pearl on inner eye & lash line
NYX eyeshadow in Wildfire on middle of lid and lower lash line
NYX eyeshadow in Luxor on outer lid and outer lower lash line

The colors didn't pop as much as I wanted, since I used Mac Paint tube in Tan Ray, and that's the not the kind of color that brings anything out other than browns or golds. BUT I'm still waiting for my Benefit LemonAid to come in the mail, so it will have to do!

Now, on another note, I really wanted to build something to hold my Ultra Pearl Mania tubes from NYX. So, I did!
See, I saved the cool little shipping box that I had received my latest shipment in.

I took it apart, and cut off the extra portion, so I'd only keep the boxy shape.

Now, with that extra piece that I cut off, I took the edge that looked like a triangle and cut about three and a half inches above it to create a shelf.

See how it folds naturally? Well, the triangle part is the support for the shelf. So, I took my hot glue gun and attached it to the the boxy shape I already hot glued some corners together of:

I messed up here: I realized too late that I wanted to have a second shelf, and I had already glued the first one, so I couldn't measure anything. So I took the extra piece that I was left with and tried to best guess and cut myself another triangle 3 1/2" shelf. But, since it was a straight piece of cardboard, I had to score it with a pen before I could fold it:

Then, it was off to paint!

I love the beach and all kinds of underwater stuff, so I went outside, collected some random twigs and rocks, took some of my plastic jewels, and hot glued together a little ocean action:

I also took a darker color and used a sponge to make it look textured. Finally, I sealed it all with Mod Podge Sparkle because I KNOW myself and don't want it getting wet and ruined. Here's the finished product:

Yay for creativity! Hope you enjoyed it, and I apologize if I didn't explain it all too well.

Here are some pics I took of the puppers outside!

what a little booger! She always steals all the toys for herself!

Rent's Due!

Ugh, I hate the first of the month. It sure can get stressful if you're tight on cash! On top of that, my boyfriend got up at 5:00 AM to go fishing with his buddy under the Coronado Bridge. And I couldn't get back to sleep. Well, to distract myself, I played around a bit with using my NYX eyeshadows wet to get a brighter result. I mean, I love using colors, but I hardly ever make a dramatic look. What do you think?

I used:
Jane eyeshadow in Surfer Girl (used wet along inner and middle lid
NYX eyeshadow in Aquatic (used wet on the outer lid & crease)
NYX eyeshdadow in Luxor (used wet on crease and above crease)

& then I just blended the poo out of it. Like I said, I was bored, so I didn't really put anything else on my face, so excuse the mess! I'm gonna get started on cleaning the house, & then going to work! Boo closing! Talk to ya later! ♥
