So my daughter and I made these chocolate sandwich cookies with vanilla frosting in the middle, then we rolled them in purple sprinkles so they stuck to the frosting. I brought them into school for the kids, who all stared at me when I walked into the room (I am sooo not a fan of lots of people looking at me, not even if they're only 5 years old, I could feel my cheeks on fire haha). I passed the cookies out to the kids and as I was leaving, some of the kids yelled, "Thank you! You're the best cooker ever!" hahaha. It made my day!
And finally we have formal charges against the man who murdered my nephew! If you haven't been following me for very long, you might not know that in June my 20 month old nephew was killed. And it's taken this long to get charges against the guy who did it. He's being charged with 2nd degree murder and 1st degree manslaughter. Of course he's pleading not guilty and I think the trial is going to be kinda rough (I wish I could go but it's just not possible) but hopefully justice will prevail.
Anyways... on to what this blog is about. Makeup! I still have been lacking in the exciting makeup department but I'm ok with that lately. I wanted to do something bright, yet simple the other day so I went for the brightest blue I own haha. Here's what I did (it reminds me of the beach haha)
|I like how my cheeks look glowy here haha|
And this next look is what I wore when I brought the cookies to my daughter's school. Whenever I have to do something for her school, I always feel like I should definitely tone down the makeup. I don't want to be the crazy mom, ya know? So here's my super exciting mom look
I had been debating on dying my hair dark. The only thing I would have against doing that would be if I hate it, how do I go blonde again? So I grabbed a box of semi-permanent dye and painted on chunks of dark to get some dark in my hair to get it out of my system haha (I don't know if you can see in these pictures). I think it looks a lot different and husband didn't even notice. What do you think? Should I dye my hair all dark? Or are the lowlights enough?
And my last look, I wanted to do something soft and romantic feeling. So here's what I did for that
I used my MAC fluidline in "Rich Ground" as a base and then used random browns and purples from my 88 palette for this. Pink cheeks are tough when you really don't own a pink blush. So I used my peachy ones and then threw on a bit of pink shadow to make it more pink. I have Revlon's Just Bitten lipstain "Passion" under MAC "Creme Cup" lipstick for my lip color.
Thank you all so so so much for following me and taking time out of your day to check this! It means so so much to me! Thank you!!!
P.S. This little chunk is to answer Meme's question about my last post. She asked which colors from the 88 palette I had used so here are the colors I used!
Thanks again guys!!
