Recently I've been into the lipsticks oppose to the lipglosses mainly because the lipstick show the color up more I have full lips & I jsut love COLOR COLOR COLOR. I am dark skin but for some reason love bright colors I wear the lipstick alone or change the shade with a lipgloss. My main color choices are purple-plums, fushia, orange-corals & skin tones I try & collect as many of those colors as possible. So what you are seeing here are all MAC products because they have the best colors. To moisturize my lips I use Carmex lip balm all through the day & can't sleep with out it

Eye Shadow Frenzy

For this look I chose MAC'S Parfait Amour, Thunder, Texture & Waveline in the liner pot, Spiked brow pencil


This is what I use to keep my eyeshadow from creasing both works miracles but I'm really loving the Urban Decay because it goes on sheer & brightens the eyeshadow. Now I started off using the MAC paints peintures which comes in color, I purchase the colors close to my skin tone but if you don't blend the paint into your skin properly it can alter your shadow, & a MAC artist told me you have to work quickly with these paints cause they dry up fast but they really keep the shadow from creasing all day I have taken a shower on a hot day & this paint never attempt to crease I love this one too. So what you see here are the MAC paints in Sublime Nature, Tan Ray, & Bamboo.






Here I believe I'm wearing MAC's Carbon & Ricepaper & for sure MakeUp Forever eyelashes











MAC lashes above & I also did this look on youtube & MakeUp Forever feathered lashes on the right I use the Duo lash glue I purchase from the MAC counter for all my lashes.






MakeUp Forever lashes in black & blue






I don't know why I just love the drag queen look.



















Again MakeUp Forever lashes









MAC eyes SORRY!! folks I don't have the colors












For the lips also MAC products I use Morange in the inner part & Girl About Town as my liner both lipsticks













MAC products again SORRY!!! I don't have the colors listed. I try to go for a beat your face look kinda like someone punched me in the eye











A portion of my MAC collection















Random this look also MAC using Coppering on the outter corner, Textured under the brow, & Moon's Reflection in the inner corners















This look here was from an CoverGirl ad but I used MAC















Here I have here a couple eyeshadow looks they are pretty much randoms but creative. MAC Cosmetics are my #1 choice of makeup but I also use MakeUp Forever, & Beauties Factory. As you can see in the post I love eyeshadow now I got into MAC only because of the colors I remember walking through Bloomingdales & right at the door I saw these amazing artistic looking girls & decided to stop through & the rest was history. I would ask the MAC artist to create a few colorful looks I would watch them in the mirror as they apply my shadow to find out how to apply & I would also feel the direction of the brushes to determine how to create my own looks & go from there. I would also walk in & watch an artist with their clients then I would play with a ton of colors on my hand & buy the best colors for me.

I also love makeup I use MAC Cosmetics mostly


I use Creme of Nature in the winter to moisturize, Pantene products in the summer & for oils & pomades I use "Organic Root Stimulator" but I also make a natural pomade which contains "100% Coconut oil, Shea Butter", & a few drops of "100% peppermint, rosemary oil, or tea tree oil" & between the 3 oils I try to use one oil with the Coconut oil & Shea Butter
