Merry Christmas!

"Christmas is a time when people of all religions come together to worship Jesus Christ"

I know, you probably thought that was a quote from a great theologian, but NO! It came from the one and only crude dude himself, Bart Simpson. Shocking, isn't it? If you've read any of my previous posts, you probably already know, I am a follower of Jesus. I believe that he is God in the flesh, and celebrate His birth on December 25th (even though He was probably born nowhere near that date). So whether you are a believer in Christ or not, I wish you a very merry Christmas!

I love the 80s

For Christmas I talked my aunt into giving me the Electric set of Urban Decay 24/7 liners and once I got them I could NOT wait to use them. Temptalia did a great review of them here. It also worked out that this weeks Makeup Showcase in NTMS was free choice, and what better way to pay homage to such great colors than with an 80s themed look!

They are all awesome, and you know I'm a purple kinda girl so Ransom had to be used immediately. Grab some shoulder pads, a bustier and some Aqua Net and have a look at my 80s look!

For this look I used
Sweet Libertine "Disco Butterfly" over Pixie Epoxy on the lid
My Beauty Addiction "Heliotrope" in the crease
Pampered Xombie "Amityville" to blend the line between lid and crease
Fyrinnae "Calavera Cupcakes" on the browbone and inner corner
Urban Decay "Radium" to line the upper eye
Urban Decay "Ransom" under the eye
Clinique mascara as always

And here's a little something to give you some inspiration! What about you, are a child of the 80s like me??

It's a blue, blue winter

The fab Wendi, my pal the Makeup Zombie posted this weeks challenge and wouldn't ya know I had just done my eyeballs in that theme without even knowing it! I used theBalm Muppet palette for the most part to create this look along with a silvery gray from a Sephora palette I got last year.

This is not your typical wintry look because here in the south we rarely get snow. We are more prone to ice storms creating black ice all over the roads which leads to a murky slush on the side of the road. So that's kinda what I went for in this look. It was a bit more vibrant IRL but it was overcast and my picture taking skills of my own eyes are still meh. Anywho! Hope y'all have a great day and send some snow my way, ya here?!

p.s. I am now humming this with a small change in the lyrics to suit the blog title lol!
