Makeup Forever Eyeshadow

anyone can apply eye shadow…

The dilemma is; making your shadows seamlessly blend and intertwine for a mesmerizing jaw dropping look, is a little more tricky and time consuming then you initially thought.

SAM_0694 (3)My biggest downfall is my perfectionism. I was going to say obsessive compulsive, and that’s true to a certain extent, however it only applies to makeup!  When applying my makeup, if my shadow isn’t perfectly blended, or both eyes don’t match up, and my brow shadow is a quarter mm higher then the other eye… I CAN’T. (Grabs makeup removing wipes, removes makeup, starts all over) and winged eyeliner. OMG. seriously, I’m sure every girl obsessed with makeup has had one of those days where one wing is perfect and the other side won’t come out. I will sit in front of my mirror until I perfect it. Obsessive Compulsive, I swear!

SAM_0710 (3)They say home is where the heart is, so my home is located in the premises of my bathroom.. and the MAC store. Mac Cosmetics is my ultimate favorite brand, because of their consistency. You never have to question if a new product is going to be of good quality. I know when I purchase anything from Mac, I’m guaranteed to love it, and that’s a fact.  This post isn’t about Mac, so I will carry on.

Aside from Mac, my other favorite cosmetic company, specifically referring to eye shadow is,

MAKEUP FOREVER.

Before & After, Total Makeovers #GlamSquadAlert

Everyone in life has their niche.

verb
  1. place or position (something) in a niche.

For me, It happens to just be beauty. Something I have always been infatuated with, yet never fully embraced until now. See, when you grow up, your immediate circle tends to mold and influence your thinking, and behavior. Growing up around people who didn’t know the difference between facial Skin Cleanser and *Gasps* Bar soap, made me kind of think per say….. I was a narcissist. OK .. I lied. Complete full out space alien, from another intergalactic planet is more like it! I spent hours on hours, upon hours doing my makeup, making sure everything was perfect, to wash it off and try another look. I call that Makeup MADNESS

Anyways skipping the aging timeline, 20 years later…… I am still doing the same thing, only I don’t feel like a being from another planet, or narcissistic. I’ve embraced my Beauty Pulse. I love to share my knowledge of cosmetics and beauty with others. Many people under estimate the power of being able to apply makeup skillfully. Sadly some people don’t know the difference between a moisturizer and anti-aging serum… that’s for another blog tho! Here is some of my Before & After Photo’s of my #GlamSquadAlert makeovers!
