Eeek! Sorry I haven't posted anything for a week. I've been so ridiculously swamped at work & the time I had off I spent catching up on sleep & gaming (Kingdom Hearts FTW!)
I really also haven't been too motivated to do anything in terms of makeup. So I come to you all asking for inspiration. Post links, pictures or ideas for what inspires you. I took some time surfing YouTube, but really just can't seem to get anything going. I also don't take seasons into consideration & will always rock hot pink & yellow eyeshadow, even for winter :P
I'm also going to set up a requests email account. I've had a lot of you request a tutorial for the Venomous Villains look I have posted on MUA. I can't do video tutorials yet because my cameras are far from good quality for recording (Canon Vixia, here I come!)
Please help me outta this rut! c:

As I start to progress with this blog, I keep thinking of new things to post.
For sure, I want to showcase one makeup item a week. I want to post photos, swatches, info, a review & an FOTD using that item, or several FOTDS using the item different ways. I know I for sure am going to do the Ben Nye Lumiere Grande palette as well as the Urban Decay Naked palette.
I'd also like to feature a specific brand once a week. I've been in the talks with some smaller cosmetics companies about this. But I'm wondering if this would be too confusing? Having "item of the week" as well as "brand of the week" -thoughts?
I also want to do a "Then & Now" type of post, where I could re-do an old look of mine & thoroughly detail the application process & products used.
SO MANY IDEAS! I would love to hear what you think, your opinions & what you would like to see.
Thank you all so much! I am seriously so excited to get this rollin' c:
ALSO; is there any way to 'cut' a post? (Like an LJ cut) I want to do a post of my old looks, but I fear it would blow up everyones computer to see that much on one page :P Thank you!!

MAC Chrystalled Lime glitter packed on the lid (used wet with Ben Nye Liquid Seal)

after years of being asked if i had a blog, i finally decided to make one. i'm still in the process of setting everything up, but if all goes well i would like to update this regularly.
a little background on me;
i'm reen. i'm a 23 year old makeup junkie. i've been a freelance artist for approximately 5 years & am on the long & expensive road to obtaining my cosmetics license. i currently reside in the chicagoland area & i am a total city girl. i've always had a huge interest in makeup & i was constantly playing around in my moms cosmetics case. she bought me my first mascara when i was 13 (i begged so hard for that) and from there it really took off.
what you can expect from me;
LOTS of cosmetics related posts including looks i've done, product information, product swatches & reviews.
tutorials, i've always been asked how i do my brows....i just have to get the hang of recording myself doing it :p
beauty finds, amazing deals on cosmetics/beauty products. i'd like to feature a cosmetics company once a month/once a week. i've been asked to work in conjunction with several companies & can't wait to get things started.
giveaways! contests & themes.
as you can see, i have very high hopes for this blog. i do apologize for this incredibly n00b-like post, but within the next few weeks i will be re-vamping everything!
stay tuned c:
