Urban Decay Purchase from Sephora

When I received my Sephora Beauty Insider Reward Card, I had an idea of what I was going to purchase. Urban Decay released the Vice 3 Palette early Fall. I was already leaning towards buying it. I still looked at other eyeshadow palettes. I wanted to be sure I was making the right decision on purchasing a palette considering the high price. Fifteen dollars off of a purchase of fifty dollars or more is not to be taken lightly.

Urban Decay does an excellent job of marketing their products. I would have kicked myself if I didn’t purchase the Vice 3 Palette. LOL!

Holiday Look #1: Featuring Blue Brown Pigment from MAC

This year the Office of Multicultural Affairs at my oldest daughter’s college is hosting a Holiday Social. Rae had expressed interest in going to this event. I came up with this look if she decides to attend. I used the Blue Brown Pigment from MAC as a part of her eye look. I also wanted a look she could do on her own if she decides to attend other Holiday parties.

Holiday Before Picture Before

Holiday Blue BrownI applied Blue Brown Pigment from MAC with a damp eyeshadow brush to the lid.

Fish Mooney Inspired Tutorial: Featuring Maybelline The Nudes Palette

I am a huge fan of the TV series Gotham. One of the reasons is Jada Pinkett Smith. She plays a brand new character created just for this series, Fish Mooney. What is cool about this show is that it gives the origin stories of the characters. We grew up reading about Batman in the comic book series from DC Comics. We saw the characters play out in the Batman TV show from the 1960s. There have also been various Batman movies. Let’s not forget about the TV cartoons.

I will admit the Fish Mooney character stands out for me because of her makeup. I used the Maybelline the Nudes Palette to create this Fish Mooney inspired look. Enjoy!

Affordable Halloween Style

My youngest daughter Naomi and her friends decided to wear Halloween costumes today. They are all way past the age of trick or treating too. LOL! Buying a Halloween costume is almost like buying an outfit you’re only going to wear one time.

This is what Naomi wore. She called herself the Magical Mad Hatter.

Naomi Halloween Costume

  • The hat she is wearing is actually two hair accessories she borrowed from me. The bow tie is another hair accessory she borrowed.
  • The necklace is mine along with the red shirt.
  • The vest, black jeans, and boots are hers.
  • The cape is a long cardigan of mine.

Rae’s Birthday Style

My oldest daughter Rae recently turned twenty-one years old. YAYYYY!!!!! Writing that sentence was the easy part. The hard part was helping her pick out a birthday outfit. Mid October can be a little tricky in Pittsburgh. Fall weather has started to make an appearance. There can still be some mild days too. The weather was definitely going to dictate the outfit Rae was going to wear. She decided to see what was already in her closet.

Rae Birthday Outfit

Rae bought this dress a couple of years ago from Charlotte Russe. She bought the shoes from Journeys back in 2011. She borrow the purse I bought from Charming Charlie.
