Purple & Blue (Bitchslap Cosmetics)





















This is such a beautiful palette from Bitchslap Cosmetics.  I first heard of this line from one of my favorite artist on Youtube.com Jodi  http://www.youtube.com/user/monroemisfitmakeup?recommended=#1p/u/8/9/pIpMxcPmwU. Sorry, it doesn't have a label so I don't know the name of the palette.  Its packed in the Original label and I bought it on sale for $10.00 at Bitchslap-cosmetics.com

EYES:
NYX Jumbo Pencil 'Pacific'
Used the purple color on half of the lid
Used the blue color on the other half of lid
Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil 'Lust' (purple) on the left & right under the waterline
Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil 'Electric' (aqua) on the middle under the waterline
Using #219 Brush (MAC) I lightly smudged the purple eyeshadow over the purple eyeliner under the waterline (left & right).  Then repeated the same step using the blue eyeshadow over the aqua eyeliner under the waterline (middle)
Used the white color in the Inner V

Bitchslap Cosmetics also sales some of the hottest accessories (my favorite) such as jewelry, bags, wallet, lashes and much much more.

Simple Gift



It's always fun to get a little creative during the holiday.  So what's better then to give a thoughtful gift yet inexpensive for family and friends as to baking brownies.   I had lunch today with my co-workers so I decided to bake brownies.
I placed the brownies in this cute box I purchased at Target (6 pieces for $9.99 including labels & stickers).  After applying the label and stickers, I glue two leafs in the middle around the label (my local .99 cents store).  Yes, I placed a grape in the middle (not necessary, but I thought it gave it a nicer edge).  Last, I painted the leafs with a red pigment.  A simple project that didn't take much time.

MakeupIsBeauty: Series of Holiday LOOKS











If you're interested in a quick & sexy yet edgy look for the holiday then this is it. I actually had this look just to run errands, lol, but I love this product a lot and the color is amazing. The best part was that I only had to use 1 brush SS224 from Sigma. Sigma brushes are exactly like MAC brushes except the price for the whole collection is EXCELLENT especially during these hard economical times. Therefore, if you're looking to save money on good quality brushes, check out Sigma http://sigmamakeup.com/ Sorry for those of you who don't like "colorful" words, but it's the name of the product - Bitchslap. This line is so pretty, vibrant & pigmented and now one of my favorite.   This wheel cost $18.00 and its the NEW label (the finger is for ALL the HATERS as Cathy the Owner best said it).  If you don't like colors that "pop" you have to check out the Matte Colors - very pretty. Check it out http://bitchslap-cosmetics.com/

Products Used:

Eyes
Too Face shadow insurance (primer)
'8 Ball Bitch' - Psychodelic Wheels (Bitchslap Cosmetics) on lid & crease (using Sigma S224 brush to smoke the crease. An alternative is MAC 224)
'Zero' eyeliner (lid & waterline) (Urban Decay)
'Plush' Mascara (MAC) *** I actually purchased this mascara @ the CCS Store for $8.00 (30% off MAC products)

Face
Studio Sculp Foundation (MAC)
Select Sheer (MAC)
'Danity' mineralize blush (MAC)
