Tag: My boyfriend explains the purpose of Make-up

Hey..
 I recently read Laura from Buy now/blog later for a while and when I read this post I knew I just had to see if The Boy had been paying any attention at all to me.
You can read Laura’s post here
 If you want even more laughter you can read the original post from Kirsty from Life in Excess here

 Or watch Marnie Goldberg’s video here

The premise is simple – list out a series of beauty products and then sit back and listen to the perception of their purpose. He was given the products to view and was asked to describe their purposeI did hope that he would have some sort of knowledge about makeup.

Primer
It primes your face for the application of makeup

Foundation
Apparently it’s a mild sunscreen and it sets the skin to the same color as your skin

Powder
I’m not understanding this. Why do these all do the same thing?!? Helps to hide the pores

Concealer 
I’m seriously so confused. Why do they all do the same thing? I seriously have no idea. Finer point that the others

Blusher
You put it on your cheeks. I have no idea what it does. It adds color to your face. (Benefit box powder)

Highlighter
You could get high off it. (Powder consistency) item to make your skin healthy

Mascara
It elongates your lashes, highlight your lashes

Eyeshadow
Eyeliner? Eyeshadow …it applies color to your lids and makes you look beautiful.

Eye kohl/liquid eyeliner
tracing your eyes along the top and bottom edge of your eyes

Brow pencil
I don’t know..mascara for eyebrows to get them into a shape that you prefer

Lipstick/Lipgloss
draw attention to your lips, keep it pretty, shiny and moisturized

 

Now it’s over to you. I seriously urge you to try this with your other half and when you do try and keep a straight face with no laughing 🙂 By the way I didn’t tell him what they did 😉

Thanks for reading!

 

More Pan that Palette & 15 by 2015 updates

Hello Everyone!
I know that it’s been a while since I posted here. I’ll just stop making excuses of not keeping up with blogging, but basically I have felt unmotivated to update here and have been trying to keep my real life together for the most part. It’s a bit of crazy situation. I am trying to improve little things with the blog here and there, but that has not given me enough time to sit down and write post the way I would like.

Getting back to the more important things about this post being my Pan that Palette and 15 by 2015 updates. Below you will find videos featured on my youtube channel from the March and April updates. I will try to post the upcoming May update sooner. I have been filming the monthly updates since I started on January 15 on the 15th of every month unlike the rest of the beauty community that films updates at the end/ beginning of each month.

March update


April update

I’m super excited at the progress that I’m making on my Too Faced Natural Eye Palette second edition, but I’m feeling a little discouraged at the progress I’m making on my 15 by 2015 challenge. I’ll keep going on both challenges and see where it goes. I also hope to have more blog posts coming up here soon. If you can’t find me here, please find me on youtube or instagram would be the best places.

Pan that Palette & 15 by 2015 Challenge

IMG_0890

Hello Everyone!
I have finally had time to decide what I’m planning on doing with my makeup collection this year. As you will see in the video below, I hope to pan the Too Faced Natural Eyes palette second edition. The first edition of the palette comes in a cardboard box exterior with a few different shadows. I also am hoping to finish off 15 different lip products in honor of 2015.

I know that does not seem like a lot, but I did not want to overwhelm and over commit myself. I also am planning on doing at least 2 Project Pans this year, but more on that in a later.

Are you joining in on the Pan that Palette challenge or any Project Pans this year? Do you have beauty goals for this year?
