Ok loves. Once again I forgot Watch it Wednesday. ūüė¶ BUT I set alarms in my phone to remind me to do Watch it Wednesday and Thrifty Thursday at 6:30 each week. I should be home by then. I promise I will do them both when I get home this evening. I took a picture to prove I set alarms. Haha!

In the meantime, I have an eye shadow look for you. I actually got up and did my makeup today. I used my Aqua Smoothers foundation this time because I needed a little more coverage. A moon erupted on my chin last night! I also used e.l.f. concealer to cover blemishes. For eye shadow bases I used Urban Decay primer and my NYX jumbo pencil in milk. All the eye shadow colors are from my BH 88 palette. I used yellow on the inner third and purple on the outer 2/3. You have to be careful with the yellow because the other colors can take it over. I went into the crease with a darker purple and blended that up with a light silver. On the brow bone I used a cream color. In the inner corner I used white. Along the bottom lash-line I smudged the same dark purple and used a tiny bit of yellow to brighten up the inner eye area. I finished with my Avon black eye liner and falsies mascara. On my cheeks I just have some PF highlighter.

I hope you enjoy this look and I promise I will have Watch it Wednesday and Thrifty Thursday up tonight! Please keep sending me ideas too! Have a great Thursday!

I have 2 looks for you from this weekend.

For the first one, I used my BH 88 original palette. I used my Mary Kay mineral foundation because I felt like my face needed a break. I started with Urban Decay primer, then used my NYX jumbo pencil in milk as a base. Its pretty natural on the top lid. I just used some browns and golds. On the bottom lashline, I used my Sephora pencil. It’s pretty similar to the NYX pencils. I only have one and it’s a teal color. So I covered that with a teal eye shadow. I finished up with falsies mascara and Avon black eye liner.

For the second look, I also used my Mary Kay mineral foundation. Urban Decay primer and NYX pencil in milk are the bases. I used my Urban Decay Book of Shadows palette for the eyes. It’s more purple than the pictures show. I used dark and light purples in the crease and a gold color on the lids. I finished up with my falsies mascara and Avon eye liner.

I hope you enjoy these looks! I’ll have Watch it Wednesday up this evening. Have a wonderful Wednesday!!

I have 3 looks for you from this weekend. I actually had a life on Thursday and got to go out. Just to see my brother’s band but it counts!

For the first look, I used my acid palette and my Crown Brush special edition palette. This look is all about blending the pink and orange so that there isn’t a harsh line. I did dark purples in the crease. The pink, orange and yellow are from the acid palette. I used my Cover Girl foundation and finished off with Avon eye liner and falsies mascara. I used a pink and a yellow Mirabella liner. It’s similar to a NYX pencil.

For the second look I used my BH 88 palette. I just did a simple natural look. Same base and finish as above. I used the NYX pencil in milk on my lids.

The last look is using my Naked palette for the top lids and a purple from the BH palette on the bottom. Same foundation, mascara and eye liner.

I hope you enjoy these! Don’t forget to keep telling me what you’d like to see! I need suggestions. Haha!

I know I’ve skipped Watch It Wednesday and there’s a reason! I am now being monitored on my work computer. Big brother is tracking what websites I go to so I can’t post blogs from work any more. LOL! I will be posting a late Watch It Wednesday when I get home as well as a Thrifty Thursday if I can find any good deals. In the meantime, I wanted to share the look I’m wearing right now.

I’m not sure if I’ve blogged about the foundation I’ve been using but I kind of love it. It’s Cover Girl Aqua Smoothers. It’s light weight and doesn’t make your face feel oily but it’s also full coverage. So for this look, I’m wearing this foundation. I used Urban Decay primer on my lids along with my NYX jumbo pencil in milk. All the eye shadow colors I used are from my BH 88 original palette. I started with a gold color on the lids, then went into the crease with a super dark brown. Almost black but not quite. I blended that out with a lighter gold then blended that with a flesh tone color. I used a beige color as a brow high light and white at the tear duct. Along the bottom I just blended the dark brown, light gold and white. I used Avon black eye liner and my Falsies mascara. I finished it off with PF cheek high lighter and some lip gloss.

I hope you enjoy this look!!

I have 2 looks to share. The first is a sort of natural look. I used my 88 palette for the eye shadow. I realized that I had never used my new NYX green eye liner, so I lined the top and bottom lash lines with it. I used Urban Decay primer, NYX milk jumbo pencil, Avon eye liner and Falsies mascara.

For my second look, I also used an 88 palette. I did purple on the outer half and pink on the inner half of the lids. I wanted some extra color so I did teal on the bottom. I also used the Urban Decay primer, NYX milk jumbo pencil, Avon eye liner and falsies mascara.

I hope you enjoy these!

Hello!¬† Have you all missed me as much as I missed you?!¬† I’m back and have had a crazy past few weeks!¬† Here’s the 30 second recap:

I went to Honduras and had the time of my life!¬† I came home to my fiance telling me he was leaving and wouldn’t even be home when I got home.¬† I picked myself up by my boot straps and carried on with my life!¬† I’m making a life change.¬† I’m training for a 5K and have lost 28 pounds overall!¬† So here I am!¬† Ready to blog again.

First, my Honduras trip.¬† Holy moly, I don’t even know what to say.¬† This was the most life changing experience I have ever had.¬† To go there and see the way these people live is just heart breaking.¬† If you’re lucky enough to be friends with me on Facebook, there is a whole album full of pictures.¬† We painted 7 murals and a bunch of children’s tables and chairs while we were there.¬† We also got to go visit a mountain village and play with the kids and go to the beach one day.¬† It was amazing!¬† Here is just a quick glimpse.

Now, on to why you’re really here.¬† The makeup!!¬† I haven’t really expanded my collection recently, but I have been playing still!¬† I have my August glambag and a new look to share with you.

First the glambag.  This was one of the best ones yet!  The bag is super cute.  It came with a bunch of stuff including a free full size MyGlam lipgloss and a full size nail polish.  There is a perfume sample and some face cream samples.

Now, the look I have.¬† All eye shadow colors are from my Crown Brush limited edition pink palette.¬† I’m trying to work on blending in the crease better.¬† I used Urban Decay primer, Avon black eye liner and Maybelline¬†Falsies¬†Mascara.¬† I also used my NYX jumbo pencil in Milk as a base.¬† I LOVED the way this look turned out.

So there you go.¬† I hope you enjoyed this welcome back post as much as¬†I did.¬† I will get back into my routine¬†starting with Watch it Wednesday tomorrow!¬† Please please please let me know what you’d like to see!¬† You can comment here or¬†email me at makeuploversblog@gmail.com.¬† You can also follow me on Twitter @Sarah_Money and you can follow me on Instagram: sarahnutzzz.¬† Have a good night makeup lovers!

I had a crazy fun but crazy busy weekend! First of all, my best friend, my love, finally proposed to me! He said he was going to do it when I least expected it and he did! I was sitting on the couch in a towel doing my makeup. Haha! Needless to say, I said yes and I couldn’t be happier! There’s a picture of my ring below.

Now, about the makeup. I have 2 weekend looks. I went bowling on Friday and I was attempting to make my eyes look like a glittery bowling ball. LOL. I have also cut back on my foundation for the summer since I have such oily skin. In these 2 looks, I just have tinted moisturizer and concealer on my face. For the first look, I started out with Urban Decay primer potion. I used a purple NYX jumbo pencil and a pink Marbella jumbo pencil as bases. All the colors are from my Crown Brush 88 palette. I used a dark brown in the outer V, purple on the outer half and pink on the inner half. I used a lighter brown to blend in the crease and a cream color as a brow highlight. I used the same purple and pink pencils and shadows along the bottom lashline and a white at the tear duct. I finished it off with my Too Faced glitter glue topped with Sally Girl purple and pink glitters, NYX black eye liner, and Maybelline Falsies mascara.

For the second look, I also used my Crown Brush palette and I also started with Urban Decay primer potion. I kept it kind of neutral. I used dark brown and light brown to blend the outer V and crease. Oh but before that, I used my NYX junco pencil in Milk (white). On the lids, I used a gold color and silver on the bottom lashline. I finished it off with white at the tear duct and brow bone. Finished off with NYX black eye liner and Falsies mascara. I got a new teasing comb when I got my hair cut last week and I LOVE. I was able to do this awesome pomp.

My last picture is of my poor nail after bowling on Friday. I just thought I’d share. LOL

Lastly, I will be MIA next week because I’m going to Honduras on a mission trip! I leave Tuesday and come back the following Monday. I’m really excited and will share all about it when I get back. I hope you enjoyed these looks! And don’t forget to email me at makeuploversblog@gmail.com any time and follow me on instagram @sarahnutzzz! Thanks for subscribing!
