Tag: My boyfriend explains the purpose of Make-up

 I recently read Laura from Buy now/blog later for a while and when I read this post I knew I just had to see if The Boy had been paying any attention at all to me.
You can read Laura’s post here
 If you want even more laughter you can read the original post from Kirsty from Life in Excess here

 Or watch Marnie Goldberg’s video here

The premise is simple – list out a series of beauty products and then sit back and listen to the perception of their purpose. He was given the products to view and was asked to describe their purposeI did hope that he would have some sort of knowledge about makeup.

It primes your face for the application of makeup

Apparently it’s a mild sunscreen and it sets the skin to the same color as your skin

I’m not understanding this. Why do these all do the same thing?!? Helps to hide the pores

I’m seriously so confused. Why do they all do the same thing? I seriously have no idea. Finer point that the others

You put it on your cheeks. I have no idea what it does. It adds color to your face. (Benefit box powder)

You could get high off it. (Powder consistency) item to make your skin healthy

It elongates your lashes, highlight your lashes

Eyeliner? Eyeshadow …it applies color to your lids and makes you look beautiful.

Eye kohl/liquid eyeliner
tracing your eyes along the top and bottom edge of your eyes

Brow pencil
I don’t know..mascara for eyebrows to get them into a shape that you prefer

draw attention to your lips, keep it pretty, shiny and moisturized


Now it’s over to you. I seriously urge you to try this with your other half and when you do try and keep a straight face with no laughing 🙂 By the way I didn’t tell him what they did 😉

Thanks for reading!

Pan that Palette & 15 by 2015 Challenge


Hello Everyone!
I have finally had time to decide what I’m planning on doing with my makeup collection this year. As you will see in the video below, I hope to pan the Too Faced Natural Eyes palette second edition. The first edition of the palette comes in a cardboard box exterior with a few different shadows. I also am hoping to finish off 15 different lip products in honor of 2015.

I know that does not seem like a lot, but I did not want to overwhelm and over commit myself. I also am planning on doing at least 2 Project Pans this year, but more on that in a later.

Are you joining in on the Pan that Palette challenge or any Project Pans this year? Do you have beauty goals for this year?

Autumn Project 10 Pan & Finish 6 by Xmas Finale


Hello Everyone!

I hope that you are doing well. Happy New Year! I can’t believe that it’s already 2015, I know I sound like a broken record or the rest of the masses saying that I was expecting to be wearing really funky clothing, living on the moon or speeding through the street on my hoverboard or flying car. Alas that has not happened yet. I however am back here with renewed enthusiasm.

Today’s post is catching you up on my Autumn Project 10 Pan & Finish 6 by Christmas which I posted about early last month, you can read about it here. Well, I finished that Project 10 Pan even though I didn’t finish all the products. You can watch the video below.

I’m really glad that I did my Autumn Project 10 Pan and the Finish 6 by Christmas challenge.  I will see you very soon!
