Makeup 101

<<< Not me, isn't she gorgeous?  Find out who she is below.

I have a bit of a makeup obsession.  I went to cosmetology college and have a cosmetology license, but you don't learn a lot of makeup in beauty school, strange right?  So I'm always playing with new looks and reading all the articles on the how to for the latest makeup trends.  Lately I've found myself in a bit of a makeup rut.  I use the same palette with the same technique every time I apply my makeup, and it's nothing special. 

Today I came across a post of a stay at home mom, like myself, who let me to two things-
1- Just because I'm not going anywhere doesn't mean I can't play with my makeup for the day!  In fact it's the best time to experiment!  An hour before I'm going out and sitting down to do my makeup is not the time to be experimental, especially when I have a husband and three kids to get dressed (yes my husband usually requires help!) and out the door.  Do you have any idea how many times I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror throughout the day and say "oh my god, is that really what I look like right now?!"

2-This amazing website, Makeup Geek, with video tutorial on some really smokin hot looks. How did I not find this sooner?!

So starting tomorrow I'm going to start wasting makeup practicing!  Then maybe I won't have to stop and stare at my disheveled self every time I pass the mirror.


  1. I definately could use help in the make-up department, I realized that I have been doing my make-up the same for almost 10 years now, pretty sad. Unlike you I don't stare at myself in the mirror I try to avoid them... :) Thanks for sharing this link.

  2. Awesome! I've been looking everywhere for makeup ideas, but didn't know where to go. thanks! Cute site btw!

  3. I love wasting makeup! Yay for this!
