RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

[ Edited ]

welcome back to the junk drawer of random beauty thoughts and musings. it has been nearly a year, so i think it is time for a rew RT thread ! 

 

when i'm doing my makeup in the morning, my dog sometimes throws a fit until i move his food bowl over to where i'm sitting. i'm certainly not the diva in our relationship.

@sabrinas wonder who these individuals are 😁 lol

 

I have won a couple..the Edward Bess, one from Laura Geller and Artis brush, and more recently a mask from Garnier. The Bite, KVD, Benefit and bigger skincare ones are impossible but I still try lol. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

i never win those giveaways, but i sure try!! not many of my friends are that into makeup, so i feel bad tagging them a zillion times. i need more beauty junkie friends to tag! 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@unfungirl awh you can tag me anytime, I think it is alot of fun actually! 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

aweee thanks @Anewxa! what's your username? Smiley Happy

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Same as my user here @unfungirl 🙂 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I won the Cult Beauty Jouer giveaway this way!  I wouldn't have known about it if it weren't for everyone else regraming the image and tagging me.  I recently won an Algenist giveaway too but I didn't see anyone else in our group tagging on that one.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Lol that's true how ambitiously we enter for IG giveaways, but I as well got the Edward Bess one only that the sweetest @txcatx helped me get 🙂

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

My one friend who is really into beauty like me does this to me relentlessly hahaha. I occasionally will tag her bag in those giveaways. I am too lazy, some of those have like 5 steps to them!

 

I won a free draper James birch box recently, had to be first 1000 commenters I think

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I'm too lazy to do anything more than follow and comment, and I never repost anything because I feel like it compromises the artistry that is my Instagram account full of pictures of wildflower fields and desserts, ha.

 

But, I'll have to start looking for y'all on Instagram contests! 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Ha ha I've noticed that. I see one, than after a few more pics is someone elses, than a few other pics than another one lol. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Do you guys ever impulse buy something and as you're driving home, start panicking that you're going to hate it?

 

Me and the Bite Love Bite set.

 

I'm super glad to report how wrong I was. I bought it Thursday and have worn them every day since. Every shade is a winner!

 

I hate the hassle of returns but I've also definitely bought from Sephora solely because I know if I hate it, back it goes. And yet I've actually only made 3 returns haha. This is a good system you have going, Sephora!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I just looked through my old Makeup Alley reviews and they dated back to 2008. I was sure that Neutrogena Pore Cleanser would be my forever and ever cleanser. It was a fun stroll down memory lane. I didn't like Benefit then except for their cream eyeshadows and my opinion stands! Smiley Happy

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I have noticed the Too faced cocoa powder foundation display has been removed from all my local sephoras, am I out of the loop on this and is this being discontinued? I finally decided to give it a try ..online was out of my shade when I click on it doesn't take me to the product page for email notifications just the standard sorry this product is no longer available.

 

The employees didn't know anything and one suggested it probably doesn't sell well so they made room for other stuff 🙄

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I feel like I am in a major rut with regards to my makeup, hair, entire look...i am just totally bored and don't know how what to do instead! I've been out of school for a few years and working full time in a field where I am usually the youngest person in the room and I've tried to cultivate a fresh but professional look but I'm so friggen bored! It really hit me last week when I went to get dressed to go out for dinner on a Saturday and I had virtually nothing to wear that wasn't something I would wear to the office ie nothing that showed a little skin or was fun, and then i kind of went on auto pilot with my makeup and just ended up looking the same as i do everyday. i need a change Smiley Sad 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Time to go shopping! Sorry your feeling that way. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I have the same problem, makeup wise. I have to look very conservative (ie neutral colours only) for work. I get bored of my work look constantly doing the same thing 5 days in a row. Try starting small, adding one or two glittery/glows items to your collection, or try a nice pop of colour for eyeshadow, or add a bold lip when you go out.

It makes getting ready to go out so much more exciting!

Highly recommend the Stila metals liquid eyeshadows, you can keep your base basically the same and add these on top of a neutral eye look. Also Marc Jacobs matte highliner in a fun colour on the lower water line.

Maybe this will help, have fun!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Wasn't sure exactly where to put this but I hit the teeniest amount of pan today in this D&G blush that I've been using for contour for the past 3? 4? years. Always an exciting achievement.

I just had the best eye liner experience ever - it's a sign that today is a good day! Hallelujah!

 

My liner started thick and stubby, but then I took some makeup remover on a Q-tip to thin it. The result was a wing thinner and longer than I'm used too. Normally, I feel self-conscious when my wings aren't the usual baby wings, but this was so much better. The shape wasn't ruined by my hooded lids and gave me the cat eye I've always dreamed of. I will attempt to get my liner like this again, wish me luck!

Omg this wing is so cute!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@Melissa136 wowza!! This is my goal everyday - never thought it was possible to achieve the perfect wing but you certainly did!  Great job...

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@ZombieMetroAnt Haha, thank you so much! I'm not sure if I can do this again, but here's to hoping *clinks glass*
