Get 'em Before They're Gone

My apologies for taking a few days off from blogging. Unfortunately, I haven't been feeling the greatest so, aside from going to work, I have literally done nothing the last few days. OK, maybe I finished the 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy (which ROCKED BTW), but other than that nothing.

Anyways, I received an email this morning from MAC informing me of the latest players to leave the game...FOR GOOD. So, before they are gone, don't forget to grab:

*Jealously Wakes Eyeshadow
*Hocus Pocus Eyeshadow
*Parisian Skies Eyeshadow
*Neo Orange Pigment
*Red Dwarf Pro Longwear Lipcreme
*Caqui Lipglass
*Its a Wow Lipglass
*Petting Pink Lip Conditioner
*Oriele Orange Nail Laquer

Friday Obsession: Getting Right with Our Bodies

We all know that makeup and beauty products can only take us so far. To really look our best, to have radiant skin, and to combat the effects of aging we have to take care of our bodies. There is no instant cure or special product that will achieve these results like eating clean and exercising regularly will. Although many companies will try and convince us that their product will instantly make us more beautiful and healthy, I have come to the conclusion that makeup and beauty products only enhance what we are already working with. This brings me to this Friday’s Obsession: Getting right With Our Bodies.

Personally, I started this year off right with New Year’s Resolutions to take care of myself and become a healthier individual. I knew this resolve would get my skin looking clearer and more glowing, my body would become more toned, and day by day I would begin reducing my stress and impending aging. I lasted a few months going strong and the inevitable happened for me: I became lazy! The last few weeks I have been entirely off the beam. I stopped caring about what I have been eating and have not made it to the gym once (which I do PAY to go to.) So it is time to GET RIGHT!! I have officially rededicated myself to getting my body healthy so that I can reap the benefits of doing so. To me this means making healthier choices about the food I eat (I never last on any crazy diets) and doing my very best to make it to the gym at least 3 times a week. These, I know, are not outlandish goals and can easily be achieved with a little dedication and motivation. And the truth is once I get in the groove I not only feel better, I look better.

I believe this idea of treating my body with love and attention is the best beauty product I can use. The rest are just awesome bonuses that are so fun to play with!!

Every other week, when I receive my paycheck, the promise of new beauty products glimmers in my mind. This week I bought MAC products exclusively and could not be more excited.

My NEW Cargo Includes:

• Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder/Pressed

• Woodwinked Eye Shadow

• Greensmoke Eye Shadow

• Pearl Cream Color Base (I have this in Hush and I LOVE, perfect for highlighting)

• Select Cover Up in NW20

• Powder Blush in Harmony (Great for Contouring Cheeks)

• Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick (Awesome bright pink color, PERFECT for summer)

• Shy Girl Lipstick (Nude color similar to Honeylove-Matte with more sheen and a hint of pink)

• Angel Lipstick (Very light, baby pink, looks heavenly on! LOVE)

*I had to include a picure of Angel on because it looks very different on the lips.

Mastering the Nude Lip

I absolutely love an intense eye and an understated, nude lip combination. It’s dramatic and sexy; yet you don’t look overdone and clown-ish. At first glance, the nude lip can seem easy. You might say to yourself, “I’ll just use a nude lip gloss and that will do the trick.” But if you want your pout to last you’re going to have to add a little more effort.

What you will need:
Lip Conditioner (I will be using Cherry Chapstick)
Mac Honey Love Matte Lipstick
Mac C-Thru Lipglass

First, you need to exfoliate your lips, removing any dry skin.
Next, you will need to apply your lip conditioner.

Now you need to apply your Mac matte, nude lipstick (Honey Love)

Finally, add your Mac lipglass (C-Thru)

Your done!!
