A look I'm calling "Get Her Before She's Gonzo" and the FUNNIEST video EVER!!

I love this beauty forum/face showing/blog family I have.  I follow Leticia from Cosmetic's Aficionado's blog (CLICK HERE to check it out) and facebook page and she was so nice as to share a post from the brand theBalm, showing that they're doing a contest to give away a Muppet eyeshadow palette where you come up with a look based on a Muppet character and then some clever name.  Word play is not my forte but I tried haha.  So here is my "Get Her Before She's Gonzo" look!

Indoor lighting:

 Outdoor lighting:

 I don't think I'll win (there are a few VERY beautiful looks in the contest) but I think it was a fun challenge.  I might do some more muppet looks just because I want to haha.
What I used:
NYX "Milk" JEP
NYX "white" shadow
NYX Ultra Pearl Mania "True Purple"
Inglot 379 M (light blue/purple)
88 palette for navy and baby blues
MAC "Blacktrack" fluidline
L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara

MAC Viva Glam Gaga 
MAC "Boy Bait" cremesheen glass

And then my daughter got home from school in the best mood ever (which was strange because she was pretty miserable the rest of the week) and we got to our house and she starts singing "I whip my hair back and forth.  I whip my hair back and forth.." and starts jammin out.  I almost peed my pants laughing at her haha.  So later she was dancing to it still and I caught it on camera haha so here's my crazy child (who happens to lack in the rhythm department haha):
I hope you guys get as much of a kick out of this as I did!!  She got all shy and mad at me for taping her so she charged at me at the end haha.  I've watched this video a million times because she's hilarious and we were watching it together and I laughed and Briana said to me, "I'm not funny in this video, I'm great!"  Which made it even funnier.

I hope you all have a great weekend!  Thanks so much for reading this!!
