Two looks, one is definitely a favorite!

I have two looks today!  I really have been rocking the neutrals A LOT and sometimes I'll trade out a color here and there but my neutral looks all tend to be very similar (like the neutral look I did here) so I don't really take pictures of them unless I think it looks particularly nice.  I think that'd get boring.

But I have worn colors a couple of times this past week.  This first look is a look I will wear again and again and again.  I just really like how it plays off of my eyes and it's colorful and fun.  I just really like it. 
I dyed my regrowth with Garnier Nutrisse 82 "Champagne Blonde."  I'm always hesitant to use dye to lighten my regrowth because I have a tendency to go brassy but luckily this didn't do it to me.

I used the new Revlon Photoready 3D Volume mascara for this.  It's ok.  It doesn't really add volume to my lashes like it says... I'll do a review soon.
I have done this look a million times with all different brands of makeup.  I used Makeup Geek shadows for this look.  The colors I used are:
Wisteria (light purple)
Purple Rain (dark purple)
Corrupt (black)
Mango Tango (coral)
White Lies (white)

And this is a look I did the other day because I felt like doing something kind of dark but still using colors.  Unfortunately I was especially unphotogenic so I didn't get very many pictures.

You can see my natural hair color in my regrowth here, this was before I dyed it.
What I used:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Makeup Geek "Corrupt"
Pretty Addictions "Desire" loose pigment (swatches here)
Makeup Geek "Vanilla Bean" to blend
Makeup Geek "Bling" as highlight

This is post number 192 for me.  My goal is to get to 200 posts before my liver surgery on June 21st.  I'm going to try to challenge myself a bit now because I'm feeling good, I'm medicine free and after the 21st I'm not sure how long it'll be before I can say that again.  So any suggestions for looks are more than welcome!

And this is a video I wanted to share with you. My brother lives in California, he's very involved in gay rights (if you live out there, go over to the club "Hype," he works there).  He's so funny, he's the most charismatic person I've ever met.  I don't think anyone dislikes him.  So he decided that he and his friends should do a spoof to the song "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen.  I asked him why he did it and he said, "We did it for fun.  We saw all these celebs like Bieber and Katy Perry doing spoofs like it so I said let's do it before any other gays do!"  So here's his video.  It's so funny.  My brother comes in at 24 seconds (he's the one wearing the Kelly Kapowski shirt haha).

And just forewarning you, this song will be stuck in your head!  I hope you enjoy!

As always, thank you all so much for your support!  I feel like I don't know where I'd be without you guys!  I hope you all have an incredible week!!

  9. I know my suggestion is kind of late but I really need help, so I'm graduating next Tuesday and I have no idea what to do with my makeup and I wanted to ask if you could do a navy and gold makeup look :) please and thank you. I really love your looks and if you don't do it, it's ok. It's really rushed so I understand :) I also wanted to tell you to be strong through your treatments, I am a happy cancer survivor :) so don't worry I know you will get better and I will pray for you
