Back again

I've been playing around with makeup more, pulling inspiration from different things and seeing what I can come up with. Recent inspiration has been a rainbow (mostly for my friend :) ), a peacock earring I purchased from Rue21, and my favorite color (green).

I changed the pictures on my flickr account and I'm going to use that to post my FOTD (face of the day), NOTW (nail of the week), and photo inspiration.

Even though I love a good neutral look I'm finding that I also really like color. Makeup is a wonderful accessory that you can either match to whatever else you're wearing or just put on anything you want. Today I matched to my earring, but I'm a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl so for me, makeup is the ultimate accessory...for now ;).

One of my favorite colors is a lime-green from my 88 palette (I got mine from Coastal Scents, but you can get them on ebay as well). It was my first MAKEUP purchase, aside from eyeshadow duos and stuff from wal-mart. I had never bought anything with actual COLOR before. (If you google "88 palette" you can find a ton of pictures). I got the original palette with matte and satin colors in it. That was 2 years ago. I have dents in some colors, a couple are gone (I think one broke :( ), and some I haven't even touched. It was around $30, which is a lot at once, but if you are just beginning with makeup it's a good place to start. If I think about it, I'll post a picture of what mine looks like right now.

I also made a tumblr account ( ) which is where I will be posting quick pictures of my FOTD, NOTW, and also where I will be posting my inspiration pictures. I have just been taking pictures with my iphone for now. We have a really nice Nikon but it's too much to pull out and take pictures JUST for my FOTD and stuff. I'm hopefully going to be getting a smaller camera for my pictures.

I'll shush for now. Til we meet again
