Physician Formula-FASHIONISTA EYES

Fashionista Eyes-For any Color
shimmer strips
custom eye enhancing shadow and liner
use wet or dry

I first applied a black liner on my bottom lid
This one is by WetnWild

I added a dab if eye drops to use the shadow wet.
I used this color I am pointing at and applied it to the corner of my lid to half way

I then used the darker purple and applied to the end of my lid to the upper crease
I blended very well

I used the lightest pink as my highlight

I lined my eyes with a Revlon pencil liner then went over it with a
Loreal liquid liner

I added my favorite NYX mascara

The look

Looking down

Looking Down again

Looking up

Looking straight
I really like the colors
I am not sure what it looks like dry not wet but I swatched it and the colors are very light.
If I do another look, I will swatch them dry and post pictures


CVS had a sale last week,spend $10.00 and receive $7.00ECB on Physician Formula cosmetics. I had $7ECB that were about to expire so I went for this deal. I ended getting a big bottle of baby wash and this eye palette for $3.44 OOP. I also received my $7ECB. My favorite color is purple so I just had to get this one called Fashionista. They had other palettes as well.

 Again, this box was not for me at all. I passed it along to my parents. I know my dad will enjoy the Werthers. My mom will probably like the other stuff as well.

This or That Make-Up Tag

Once I again, I have been Tagged by the lovely mattabellax3. This is another great tag that I am happy to do. Let the questions begin:

Blush or Bronzer: I really like wearing both, but since I can only choose one, I choose blush. I like to have some color on my face. I really like pinkish shades.
Lip Gloss or Lip Stick: I prefer to wear lipstick.I feel that it last longer than lip gloss.
Chapstick or Lip Butter:  EOS Lip Balms are the only balms for my lips. I love them. I love the shape and the packaging.
Matte or Sparkle Eye Shadow: Definitely matte eyeshadow. I would hate to go overboard with the sparkle eyeshadow.
Eyeliner or Mascara: Mascara because the one I use now really opens up my eyes.
Gel, Liquid, Cream, or Pencil Eyeliner: Pencil eyeliner would be my choice. Although I really love using liquid and gel eyeliners. I usually line my eyes first with a pencil eyeliner then go over with a gel or liquid. I make less mistakes using the pencil first.
Foundation or Concealer: Garnier BB cream. It cover little imperfections and gives my skin a great coverage.
Liquid or Powder Foundation: Liquid is for me. I used powder foundation when I was much younger and always ended up with streaks. Have not tried it again but I think I will stay with liquid.
Natural or Statement Eyes: Natural eyes but with a black lined eye.
Pressed or Loose Eye Shadows: I don't own any loose eye shadows except for a few that broke and I placed in a little container. I prefer a mess free pressed eye shadow.
Water Proof or Non Water Proof: Non Water Proof Please. I like to wash my face and be done. I don't like using separate things for my eyes and face. Especially at night when I am ready for bed.
Brushes, Sponges or Fingers: Fingers all the way. Unless I am using a thicker foundation then I have to use a brush.
Powder, Cream or Liquid Highlighter: I don't use Highlighter much but the one I have and use is powder. So Powder would be my answer.
All done!!! This was cool. I like Tags  like this. They are so much fun. It also gives me a good reason to blog. Please feel free to do this Tag and let me know if you decide to do it so I can read your responses. I love reading what people use.

TAG: Most Worn Things: Summer 2012 Edition

First of all I want to thank these 2 lovely ladies http://www.daydreamingrealist.com/ and Lizzy from http://mattabellablogs.blogspot.com/  for tagging me. I so much prefer to do this one on my blog rather than YouTube
My hair is very straight and since it is so hot these days I really dont like using a straightener to curl my hair. I use the Garnier Surf Hair. I apply a generous amount on my wet hair after I shower at night and in the morning my hair has a nice little wave to it. I also love the John Frieda Frizz Ease Firm Hairspray. It really holds my hair in place. If I decide to change my style and brush my hair it does not leave flakes. i love it. This hairspray also keeps my ponytail in place even with my short hairs in the front. I just place my headband on and spray my hair and I am ready to leave.

 I can not go without using my  EOS lipbalm. It is so addicting. Other than that my most favorite lip products are my Revlon Just Bitten  in Smitten. I really like it because it last a long time on my lips and it is so easy to carry. I love the way it smells too. My other go to lip color is the pH matchmaker from Physicians Formula in Pink. I like that it has a mirror on the tube. i dont usually carry a mirror around so this is very helpful.

Wearing blue nail polish was one of my favorite colors to wear. This color here is by Sinful Colors  in the color Why Not. Looks great on my hands and toes.


This perfume was a present from my son so I wear this one all the time. It is by Brittany Spears in Radiance. I really like this perfume.


Here are my favorite blush and bronzer. The bronzer is from NYC in color Sunny. It has no shimmer which I really like. It is very affordable as well. My favorite blush was from Physicians Formula in Rose. I just have to be very careful not to over apply. The color can get really bright.


NYX Provocateur
 This mascara really makes my short thin lashes look longer and fuller. I actually received this in one of the Craveboxes. I looked on- line a while back and the price was $5.00 which again is really affordable.


Garnier BB Cream
If I were to attempt to wear any foundation the possibility of it melting off my face would be very likely. It is so hot and humid. This is the only thing I use when it comes to foundation. I love the coverage and ease of applying. I do apply pressed powder after it just to keep the shine away.

I actually bought the bracelet at Good Will. I just love the colors and that its a wrap around. The earrings I made. The color does not go well with everything but I try to wear them as often as I can. The headband in the first picture is a must for me as well. I bought it at Target in a 2 pack, one silver and one gold.


This is the cutest shirt ever. I just love owls.


 Since I was usually on the go this summer with my son, I mostly wore tennis shoes. The Reebok's are great for the gym and the Nike are great for running errands.The sandals were cute. I  am not much of a high heel shoes type of girl. I tend to lose my balance so I usually go with flats.

This was alot of fun. If you are reading this feel free to do the tag♥
Thanks for stopping by.
