Bronze Fall Eye Look

This post will show you that I am improving big time in my eye makeup looks.  I am damn proud of this one and I hope you guys like it.

Work is getting more bizarre by the minute.  Annoying is still at large and in charge (in her own mind) but I'm being told that when the boss is asked directly, she is "just a clinic nurse." But then I'm told she meets with the boss every day at 4pm.


What this tells me, is that the boss likes what she is doing even if the rest of the place thinks she's annoying as f*ck.  True story.  One of the doctors called on Friday to ask if we found her as annoying as they did.  Think that's a unanimous resounding yes on our parts.

I have been avoiding the boss and my meeting.  I know I'm going to cry and it's just not something I'm looking forward to and I fear my false lashes will fall off.  What happens when you cry with falsies on?  Seriously people. I need to know!

Went to the eye doctor for my yearly exam.  Luckily, I don't need new glasses this year.  Anywho, I was wearing my lashes but sort of figured they'd be in the way when you squish your face to the puff in your eye thing.  Is it just me or is that the most irritating test ever?

So before she got started, I looked at her and said hold up, I need to take off my lashes.  I ripped them off, put them in their little case and proceeded with the squish face test.  She looked at me after and said I look way different without lashes on.  Dude do I know that! Now that I've been wearing them, I just can't take looking at myself without them on!  She also asked me how long I'd been wearing them.  I looked at her and said "about a month." HEHEHEH.

Oh and remember that funky lash tool thing I showed you in my lash post? Totally amazing invention.  It has helped me beyond measure to get my lashes on.  Am I still having trouble getting them in the right place? Yes at times, but I can at least get them on much faster and easier.

Maybe I should have bought more than one???

Now as I told you before, today's eye look makes up for the horrid yellow look a couple posts back.  I took my time, blended like a fiend and got good pictures.

Here is my Fall 2015 Bronze Eye Look.  Yes it deserves capital letters!

Obviously this is an open eye, half closed and closed lids.  I used all Makeup Geek eyeshadows. Peach Smoothie, Homecoming, Brown Sugar, Bada Bing, Roulette and Burlesque.

For Instagram, I did a collage.

I did a winged liner and used Bada Bing to smoke it out as I didn't want it too precise.

I am very proud of this one and I hope you like it too!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Barielle Ribbon and Lace, Enchanted Polish Rainbow Juice with Pulp

It seems I forgot to show you the last Barielle polish from the new Fall/Winter 2015 Mirror Mirror collection.

It also seems I am craving two of the new Chanel polish for this Fall.  Chataigne and Vert Obscur. Although the Vert Obscur reminds me of a very old Nars one called Zulu.  Anyone else out there think that way? And if I really am honest, I like the third one as well.  The Sanguine one with a touch of burnt orange.

You all know how much I love me some burnt orange!

But damn at $27 a piece?

If anyone wants to have pity on me and send me one of these Chanels, I'd be ok with that.

Now on to other things.

The scuttlebutt is that Annoying (for lack of better name yet) has been given the free reign to fix the flow of things.  No one has been able to verify that with the boss yet.  Trust that I am meeting with her later this week and plan to straight out ask her.

In the meantime, Annoying has tried to move doctors around from their comfort zones and managed to piss off several at one time.  When confronted with this, Annoying blamed one of the peons.  We all know that there's no way this peon would have the balls to do such a thing.  Especially with this one doctor-the only one who has ever made me cry.  In my twenty year career.

He's not one to be messed with.

This particular doctor goes to Annoying and says he would prefer things stay as they are.  Annoying now feels that everyone hates her and can't understand why.  Gee, really? You come in here new not even here a month, not finished with orientation and try to take over and make major changes without asking and you can't understand why people don't like you? And then you blame someone else for you own doings?

Maybe Annoying has Stupid tendencies?

What I do know is that I got my yearly evaluation (that's what the meeting is about) and I'm being punished for liking to work alone.  For not being social and more visible in clinic.

Hmmmmmmm.  Did you all see that pile of work I showed you? I've never said no to anything that's been asked of me, I'm not a full time employee yet I do at least fifty hours of work a week in twenty eight hours and I'm not being social enough?

I don't have the time and honestly, I don't want to be social.  I'm there to do a job, take good care of my patients and go home.  Not one patient has ever been lost, dropped, forgotten nor complained about me.  I've gotten several praise letters from them and this to me is what matters.

That's why I've called a meeting.  And while I'm there, it certainly can't hurt to try to get the dirt on Annoying right?  I asked my higher up confidante there and I'm told to just sit and watch and all will be revealed.  Cryptic and I have a need to know just what the hell is really going on here.

Stay tuned.

Here is your last Barielle polish from the new Fall/Winter Mirror Mirror collection.


This is a gorgeous teal color that is another one coater! This means you can use it to stamp with.  So I believe four of the five in this set can be used to stamp with.  That's very cool in my book.

Just for the fun of it, I then added Enchanted Polish Rainbow Juice with Pulp.


I wish I had sun for this! It's a holo topcoat like polish with holo glitters in it.  Super blingy and of course just what I like!

Hope you like this!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows, Yellow Eye Fail

Today I will be showing you some new eyeshadows I've gotten recently.  So far I am loving them as they blend well and have good pigmentation for the cheap price.  I will also show you the eye fail I did with my new studio set up using my left eye when I now know I need to use my right eye and different camera settings.

I will show you my vindication in two posts from now!

I'm now writing the fourth of six posts in one sitting and I'm running out of things to talk about!

I don't know if you guys go on Instagram and check out the eye looks.  I know I do as I'm trying to get inspiration and education.  What I also see is a butt load of photoshopping and "fixing" things. While I don't have a problem with it because I know it's being done, there may be a ton of younger people out there that don't know they can't achieve these looks without photoshop.

That's where my issue comes in.  I will tell you right now that I will photoshop out some eye goo I didn't know was there or a stray brow hair I missed, but I won't ever do it to the extreme that some of the accounts on Instagram do.

Full disclosure however, I did play with a new app with the eye look I'll be showing you today.  It was a huge fail anyway and I thought perhaps if I messed with it a bit, I might salvage some good out of it.  The app is called FaceTune and this app will make your teeth whiter, your eyeballs whiter, take out your wrinkles and all sorts of other stuff.  It was fun to play with but that's just it.  I was playing with it.  The next eye look I show you a few posts from now I did so much better with my technique and photographing that I didn't feel the need to try and fix a fail.

Does that make sense?

I will share with you a few accounts I do love on Instagram.  The top one being Rebecca Seals.  She just does things with color that I personally love.  Not appropriate work looks, but they are so spot on perfect that I strive to do looks like hers.

Another one is Tania Waller.  She has a YouTube channel but she is one who heavily photoshops her eye looks. Yes I know this but yes I still love her eye looks.

One that does no retouching at all is Elle at PittPantherelle.  I do love her looks.  I hope to one day be good enough to post tutorials like she does.

Let me show you the new eyeshadows I've gotten.

There are 55 in total.  These two palettes hold 54.  I have a jet black shadow not in these pictures.  As you can see, even in eyeshadows I'm not a pink person! HAHAHA.  Neutrals and browns forever!

Here is the eye look I did that I feel is a fail.  I did however, do my first winged eyeliner, but you can't see it.

And remember this was WITH a ton of photoshopping and it still sucked ass.  There was just no saving this one. Oh but look how pretty the ring light is in my eye.  I used yellow duh and these beautiful khaki/olivey greens from the makeup geek shadows I just showed you-bottom right area of the second palette.  But I have hooded and old wrinkled eyes so you can't see the greens.

Trust that I will try another yellow look and I will rock it next time!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
