LOL -- I'll try to squeeze one in this weekend or at night one day this week ;) And I know that since it's going to be a tut for the world to see - it's gonna come out like crap! lol When I don't care what it looks like is when it usually looks good. lol :blink:

Usually I will put a thick layer of loose powder under my eyes to catch the e/s "fallout" and when I am done I can just brush the loose powder and the e/s bits that fell away!

 

This time, I just used a q-tip with some moisturizer on it and used that to wipe away the e/s fallout. I will only use the q-tip if I am not wearing foundation or I haven't put the foundation on yet. If my foundation is already on before I do my eyes (which is how I most often do it) then I use the loose powder so that I don't mess up my foundation.

Great job Leila! Blending is really difficult for some people. I went shopping a few weeks ago and this woman came in the store rushing for outfit for a night on the town. Her makeup was nice with one BIG exception: the two eye shadow colors were NOT blended! You see where one started and where the other ended. It was like she had a line down the middle of her lid! It was a Lancome duo she said with turquoise and gold. Beautiful colors, but she looked RIDICULOUS! I wanted to say something Soooooo bad! I just want to add that I love blending in a circular motion, especially when I'm dealing with two colors in the crease.

Yay, you did a blending tut! :clap Nice job Leila - I think good blending is what really makes eye MU look polished and professional. Now I can't wait to get hold of the SK brush you're sending!

Wonderful tutorial. I actually had a big Aha! moment. I never thought to blend in circles or only in one direction. I wondered how you girls got your colors to blend so beautifully and not look all muddled together like mine do.

I WILL NEVER WINDSHIELD WIPER AGAIN!!!!!! Thank You!

Awesome, I will have to try this as soon as a get a good e/s base. By the way, I thought it even looked great "unblended"....loved the contrast.....then you blend and it all just pulls together great too.

 

Thanks sweetkins! You are the blending queen!

 

Quick ?: I have a bunch of mac piggies (samples) and I lost my mixing medium (looked all over for it, I have a feeling a little short person got a hold of it.....aka Lizzy, my 3 year old)....what can I use in place of this? I heard visine????? Oh and how the heck do you use it....I was just dipping my brush in the mixing medium, then into the piggie, then I mix it a little on the e/s case lid....then apply....is this wrong? How exactly do you do it? I know I have to mix it some how, cuz if any of it gets into my eyes.....thats the end of me, I get bad sensitive red eyes going on.....so I would love for any suggestions to keep the stuff from getting in my eyes.

Becky and Ley that mascara is AMAZING! Let me know if it isn't offered there and I'll CP you some. I was really impressed, and what makes me TRIPLY happy is that it holds the curl I put in my lashes with my Shu curler, it doesn't straighten my lashes back out like other mascaras...

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
