My one month blogging anniversary!

It's been a month.  I never expected for my blog to do this well.  Thank you guys so much for following me and supporting me!  I appreciate every single comment I receive.  Haha I so much appreciate anyone willing to sit there and read my ramblings haha.  Sometimes I get a little carried away and feel like I have so much to say.  So here's the look I chose to post on my one month blogiversay!
These are all Ingot shadows.  The colors I used are
384 (the green)
71 (the purple)
352 (a matte skintone color)
363 (brown to blend in between the green and purple)
395 (as a highlight)

It's so mean of me to rub these eyeshadows in your face isn't it?
Well, I did order an extra 5 pan palette and 5 extra eyeshadows and I want to thank you guys for being so supportive of me so I'm going to give you guys a chance to win them!  So here's what you're going to get if you win:
352, 395, 384, 70, 74
hey guess what?  I used this color in my look today
and this one too!
and this one!
not this one, it didn't match haha
and I don't have this color for myself but it's kinda similar to the 71 that I used today, it's just a little less purple and a bit more magenta
They're all new and unopened.  I wish I would have known how much I would like the matte colors because I  would have definitely picked out 5 mattes to give away but these are great colors too.  

So what do you have to do to win?  Be a follower of my blog and leave me a comment telling me a look you'd like to see me do (inspired by something, maybe a celebrity or a flower, or a bug, or whatever haha), or a color you'd like me to use and you'll be entered.  Only one comment per person please, don't think that commenting 50 times on this post will up your chances of winning because I'm going to count it as one.  I'm not going to have you post this on your blog to get more entries because I don't think I could keep track of all of that anyways and not everyone has a blog.  

I really want this giveaway to be for the people who have been supporting me so I have a list of all of the names of my followers up to this point, all of my current followers will get an additional entry when they leave a comment (PLEASE let me know if your following name is different than your commenting name).  Now, because I really want this to go to someone who has been supporting me, I have counted all of the comments that y'all have made.  So for each comment you have previously left on my blog, you will get that many more entries when you leave a comment (I'm going to need to know if the name that you follow with is different than the name that leaves comments so that we can maximize your chances of winning).  So let's say you were following my blog already, you have left me 3 comments in my blog's lifetime and you leave me a comment on this post, that will give you 5 entries to win.  If you've just found me and want to enter, feel free, I'd love for you to win too!  I'll be using to pick a winner. 

I'm pretty sure I can ship anywhere in the world (though I've never tried) so I'm going to have it open to everyone.  I'm going to close this giveaway at 11:00 p.m. next Thursday, which is April 14th.  And hopefully I'll announce the winner on April 15th, when the winner will then have to contact me with your information so I can send you your new palette and eyeshadows.

So that's my one month anniversary look and giveaway (I knew that when I ordered from Inglot it would be an excellent chance for me to do a giveaway).  So good luck everyone!  I wish I was rich and could give something to everyone because I totally would (I love giving presents!!)!!

  24. Congrats on being here one month! It's so nice of you to already be doing a giveaway..

    I would love to see you do a summer/beach/tropical look :)

  25. I just found your blog through Girltastic and I cannot tell you how much I absolutely love it. You are extremely talented and so personable and I really enjoy stopping by everyday to see what new looks or stories you have to tell.

    I would absolutely love to see a look using maybe an orange and some other color, but I think a coral or orange is so great for summer that I would just love to see what you come up with!

    Awesome give away and congratulations on one month! :)


  26. Congratulations girlie!! I've told you before, but I'll tell you glad you started a blog!! I would love to see you do a look inspired by a Rosemary Beetle. I think they're beautiful, and if anyone could do the look justice it's you. Well done again xx

  27. Congrats girl! You have always done amazing looks! I'd love to see you do something really dramatic with some crazy lashes! Something completely out of the ordinary.

    By the way, I think I follow you under Dee-vious Beauty.

  28. I am so happy that you have started your blog. I started tuning in about 2 weeks ago when I saw your link on makeupgeek.

    Your looks are, without fail, always amazing.

    I would love to see some more tutorials on how you create your looks, though I know that the tutorials have to be time consuming... you are very thorough.

    It's hard to come up with inspiration ideas that haven't already been thought up on makeupgeek. I do love the current inspiration idea of flowers. Though you have already completed a beautiful look based off a sunflower, I'd like to see some more flower ideas coming from you. My personal favorite flower is the calla lily, but I'll leave it up to you what flower you want to get inspiration from... flowers offer a great palette of colors to choose from, so pick the prettiest! :)

    Congrats on your 1 month, and I can't wait to see more looks!

  29. Wow only one month and you're doing a giveaway! so generous. Then agian you do awesome makeup and you have talent :)

    I would love to see you do more bird inspired looks :) Soemthing a little more creative i guess.

    Awesome giveaway and i look forward to more beautiful posts in the future from you :) Happy one month anniversary to blogging!

  30. Love that color combo; it's one of my faves! I think someone else already mentioned it, but I was thinking ladybug inspired! Anyway, you deserve all of the followers you get because you are very talented!

    I think I follow under Toshia Thrall? Hell, I don't know, haha.

  31. See, I knew this would be a good way to get suggestions on what to do next haha! I'm a genius! This is so exciting. I'm the one giving them away and I can't wait to see who wins haha!

  32. I am a new reader, but am LOVING everything!! You are so talented! How about a look inspired by the movie Rio?

  33. I just stumbled upon your blog from Makeup geek, I was going through the disney character weekly challenges. You did the absolutely stunning look of Kevin from UP! I just wanted to congratulate you on your blog's anniversary. I just started my own blog so I'm hoping to get better and as popular as you!!!
    A great look you could do was Betta Fish, it may seem weird but I love how bright they are and they always seem to change when the lights hit them.
