I love Fall tag

I seen this tag on Miss Veronyka's vanity table and i thought it would be so cool to do.
I tag everyone else to do this tag as well.

1.Favorite fall lip color.   Bit of berry by maybelline. I bought this earlier in the month and i absolutely love this color.

2. Favorite Fall nail color.  Vintage Vamp from Mac Marilyn Monroe collection. I have been wearing this color almost all of the month of October on my toenails. This really is the perfect color for fall.

3. Favorite Fall drink. I don't go to Starbucks. I find that i can either make it cheaper or get just as good at my local caseys. I do love Hot cocoa with marshmallows  I got the hot cocoa for the Keurig  and marshmallows in a container. ( yes they are dried just like in hot cocoa mixes and i got it at my local dollar general. )

4. Favorite Fall candle. I dont have a specific candle but i do burn Apple cider wax in my warmers. I love that smell. Makes me think of fall every time.

5. Favorite fall scarf or accessory. I don't really have a favorite for this. I just have a basic black scarf that i wear its really cold cause the cold will cause me to go into an asthma attack.

6. Haunted house? Haunted hay ride? or Haunted corn maze?  I love a good haunted house. I also love haunted hay rides.

7. Favorite Halloween movie.  When i was growing up i love Nightmare on elm st. I still love it but now i love any scary movie that has vampires in it. A favorite is Interview with a vampire.

8.  Favorite candy to eat on Halloween. I don't eat a lot of candy on Halloween. I do however love the reeces peanut butter cups that are shaped like pumpkins. OMG That is my weakness. I also love the autumn candy corn.

9. What are you dressing up as on Halloween. I am not dressing up. On Halloween, I stay inside and watch scary movies. We don't have trick or treaters  so i usually just by candy for my kids and i will fix them up treat bags.

10.  What is your favorite thing about fall. I love the leaves changing colors. I love the crispness in the air.

I hope that you all have a great and happy Halloween and please stay safe. Now its onto the holidays.

Halloween nail tutorial

 I want to share with you one last halloween tutorial.
This is super easy and quick to do.
These are the colors that i used but you can use what you have on hand.
I always start with a base coat

                                           I then put two coats of a white color on the nails, I used the circus by andreas choice in reverso. This is my all time favorite white color.

                                           Then using a red color. I used la colors art deco in flammin. I went across the top part of the nail and bring lines here and there. Use the pic below to see how.

I always end with a base coat to protect the color.

Have a happy halloween and please stay safe.

From the same palette i used the v color over the top of the glamour me. I then used wet n wild in sugar on the brow bone. 

 I used the lancome le crayon khol in black on the inside of the bottom lash line.

                                    I used the lashes above with the revlon precision lash adhesive.

Sugar skull for halloween

 Its almost halloween time. I picked this sugar skull tattoo up when i recently when to my local spirit halloween store.

 You simply cute out the different parts and take the clear plastic of and position on your face where you would like it. Your face must be clean and with no makeup on. Then once you have it in place, you take a wet washcloth or i used a face wipe and press on the top. Slowly peel away and then i took the face wipe and lightly went back over the top to make sure it was in place.

  After you apply it, you can then either add makeup or jewels. I chose not to.

You can also recreate this look by using black liner. and makeup you may  have in your collection.

Review: Laura Geller waterproof eye spackle pen

This innovative eyeshadow primer is clinically proven to improve the water resistance/water proofness of your baked and powder eyeshadows. Advanced no budge formula boosts the longevity of your eye makeup, making it resistant to creases and fading, to keep you looking fresh and alert. 

 The unique design of the click pen applicator dispenses the perfect amount of product every time. Light reflecting pigments help to brighten the eyelid area and draw attention away from imperfections while the neutral  color helps even out discoloration. Waterproofing ingredients combined with the lightweight and silky texture help lock in eyeshadows and even liners for long lasting wear.

                                            I  applied this product over my entire lid and blended  out and up onto the brow bone.

                                             I applied my eyeshadow over the primer. This pic was taken right after i applied.

                                           This pic was taken 4 and half hours later. You can tell that its still in the same place. It hasnt faded, in fact actually it looks like its a little more intense in color. It also  hasnt creased at all either.

This is in my top 5 eyeprimers. I have dry eyes which means that sometimes my eyes will water, and i love that when i use this primer, its not going any wear.

I recommend that if  you havent tried this, go and get it. Its great to have in your collection.

                                           Posh eye shadow pigment, I love the way this stays so vibrant, doesnt fade or crease and i love that this has so much pigment.

                                            Masquerade lipstick. This is a rich, blood read with a hint of orange shimmer. The color is perfect for fall.;

                                          Gold duct eyeliner pencil. This is great for the upcoming holiday season. It is very workable pencil, goes on good without hurting your eyelids.
