I’m thinking about doing some sort of foundation set up or review schedule and I’m not sure how I’d like to set everything up quite yet, but for now I’ll give you some of my skin history so you’ll know what I’m looking for.

Having imperfections is a part of life, we all have them. However for the glymera, it’s not only frowned upon it’s a down right crime. This is the reality that Qhuinn has had to live with his entire life. Why you ask? It’s because he has mismatched eyes. He has had one hard life and he can really only rely on his two best friends, John Matthew and Blaylock. However fate kinda has other plans for him when he (finally) figures out he really only loves his best friend Blay. Lover at Last is his story so I can only imagine what will happen but since the book comes out in March of 2013 I have some time to kill before then ;).

I have to admit, I’ve been rooting for Qhuinn from the beginning and I really want his character to be happy. I don’t have the best memory so I trusted that the temp cover would be correct…well it wasn’t. I have the eye colors as left being green and right being blue with the red ‘tattoo’ under the left eye (which was correct) which is what is on the cover, but they are wrong. *gasp* I know! Horrible fan I am, so I apologize for it and do plan on redoing this look along with Rehv. So hopefully you can look past that and enjoy! So I just read on goodreads that JR Ward said the cover is not wrong, but the original description of Qhuinn was from John’s POV so I guess I had it right, but the tattoo might be wrong then…

The other day I was going to Target and I wanted to try some of my new makeup out. So after jumping out of the shower I started playing around and decided I wanted to play up my lips more than my eyes (not my normal go to). So a simple wing liner and away I went. 🙂 Enjoy!

So I tried out my new Maybelline products when I went to school this past Saturday. I’m sorry to say I did not enjoy the new Color Tattoo eyeshadows. Unfortunately you almost have to use your fingers. I tried using a brush at first and the color did not distribute evenly nor could I smooth it out. So I used my pointer finger to apply the orange color to my entire lid, then I used my ring finger to apply the red/rust color to the outer half of my eye and lastly using my pinky I placed the white under my brow and in the inner corner of my eye. I didn’t line my eyes heavily because I ran out of time and because my class is a morning one I sometimes think eyeliner is a bit too intense for so early on in the day. So here are some photos of before and after.
I applied everything around 8:30 in the morning and the second (after) photo was taken around 6:30 pm. The colors did last. They do everything they promise to do, I simply did not like the application of the shadow. I might try using them as a base sometime, but as for just everyday wear, I might have to skip on these.
