My Montage 11/30/09 at

Today my daughter and I had the most wonderful shopping experience at Lush cosmetics. We met two incredible sales associates. Catherine and Nicole. These two ladies make the old saying "if you find a job you love you will never work a day in your life" so true. They love their jobs, and they make it look like so much fun. This shop has so many wonderful smells, pretty colors,and beautiful designs. The body bars are so creamy and yummy. The bath fizzes (chill pill especially) are fun. I can't wait to use mine. They have shampoo bars, deep conditioner bars, body jellies, scrubs, salts. We spent an hour there. I still think we had more to see. It was such a blast. If you would like to do something fun and unique for your girl friends and lady family members this Christmas this is perfect. If the other lush shops and employees are anything like this one, you are in for such a treat.

Rainbow eyes

Wanting to get in touch with my inner flower child today, I decided to take on the rainbow eyes. I wasn't sure that I had all the appropriate colors. I had to sneak into Silvie's room and borrow a couple of shades. That's my daughter. (sorry about going in your room while your away! :) ) Armed with almost all the correct colors, I set to work with no idea of what to do. Just a general sense of fun. This is what I came up with. Give me your comments on how you think it came out. I would love to hear and see how your rainbow eyes turn out.

Pretty in pink eye shadow look

This morning I woke feeling extremely girlie. This was definitely a day for pink. NO, not that pink. I wasn't in the mood for music. Color was what I craved. So, I culled my makeup stash for all the pink I could find and threw in a splash of gold for spice. Then set off to make these blue eyes frame out in pink heavenly girlitude. Ah, The sheer joy of Pink. First using my Urban decay eyeshadow potion primer in sin, My lids were primed. Then I set to work using NYX Jumbo eyeshadow pencils. In the colors strawberry milk, cherry, and gold. Lining close to the lower lash line with strawberry milk up to the crease, putting cherry in the crease and the v, then blending upwards toward the brow. I placed a line of gold well below the brow bone and blending this into the cherry. Using a liquid liner pen in blackest black for lining my upper and lower lash line. Also, I used the cherry NYX as a blush. To complete the look Peter Thomas Roth lashes to die for Mascara, and Smashbox tinted lip treatment in beam. Now, Smile for the camera! I'm ready for my close up.
