My New Makeup Look - Products used & trying Individual Lashes

Ok so I recently bought some makeup, and this has been my current look. I don't do much makeup tutorials/ what I'm wearing because I always have on the same thing, so since I switched, here it is. & I also got a lot of questions on my eyebrows & lip gloss.

It was also my first time trying on Individual Lashes instead of the strip. i tried watching youtube videos, and asking Mary for tips, and at the end of the day, you take as much advice as you can, and when you start battling the glue, you screw the advice and do whatever you have to do to make the lashes stick. However i must have done something wrong cause whenever I took a shower a bunch fell off :( This never happened when i got them professionally done, but I saved about 25 dollars for the same look.

so basically I have 2 days same/ similar look, and what I used.

1st Look: getting ready to head to Marlyand (July 13th / Last week)

lash closeup

2nd Look: few days later in MD, took it with my blackberry bold 9000 and had it as my bbm profile picture and a lot of people asked bout the makeup.

& Here are the tools.

diff from my normal routine is the MUFE Foundation, Mineralize (thanks to trying Kili & Mary's makeup in Miami), and the lip stuff.

ps: I bought a lot of stuff from the MAC Store  (not the reg department). 
For those in GA the MAC Store is at Perimeter Mall, & you can use your 30% off pro card there

1. HD Definition Foundation - number 175 - by Make Up Forver (MUFE)  *still wonder if i need to mix it with another color*

2. Photo finish - Oil Free - Original Primer - by Smashbox
Primer is the first thing I used on my face, to give it a smooth look, before applying my makeup, you should definitely own a primer, they also sell cheaper brands in walmart, and target.
3. Right Image - Cremesheen glass - by MAC   --*applied lipstick before lipgloss*

4. Viva Glam Gaga  - by MAC - (aka Lady Gaga) *limited edition*  ---------$14 buy here

5. Eyebrows - Spiked - by MAC

6. Eye pencil - Smolder - by MAC

7. Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Dark - by MAC

8. Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35 - NC50- by MAC  *to cover dark spots/ blemishes*

9. Powder Blush - Sweetness - by Mac

The lashes I used: Ardell Naturals - Knot Free - Short & Medium
1st time aint so bad huh :) -------- lol ok now look left, do u see that lash falling he he he ;)

All done :) lol u might notice in the camera phone I no longer have lashes, that's cuz one night I vexed and removed the lashes, and I forgot to travel with mascara or strip lashes he he.

Hope you enjoyed it.
Laters luv.


  1. Love the second pic!!!!! gorgeous!!!

  2. Not bad at all for your first time! I usually place the lashes on the inside of my eyelid, kinda like how you would line your inner rim with eyeliner. I place them right where the eyelash starts. They stay put for about two weeks!

  3. love the makeup cuz...its Nneka Onyebuchi by the way...hehe:)

  4. Yay! I fail at individual lashes..... I'm #185 in MUFE..

  5. Love the look....I am not the greatest at applying individual lashes...still learning but it looks like you did a good job applying yours.

  6. hahaha youre so cute, yeah those lashes are the only thing that i learned how to do. when i was performing in The Wiz play, i made sure i took the time to glue those on lol.

  7. I think you did a great job on the lashes. Usually if i go faux lashes, i apply them individually(like you did), but it is so time consuming! Lovely blog you have here too:-).

  8. I love your makeup. It's so light an natural. Very pretty.

  9. wow!nice make up, huh?!love ett! :]
