Beauty By Me

Sorry I haven’t been blogging lately, I honestly have just been lazy, bu I wanted you see my new thing. I have an obscene amount of makeup to just to justify it I have been doing make up to work. Nothing is extravagant but I though it would nice to show off some of my looks. Enjoy!!!!


Comfort Alert!!!

Comfort Alert!!!

So we all know that some Forever 21 shoes can make you feel literally every cobblestone or pebble on the ground or be relegated to bar shoes status (you know the ones you walk from the car and straight to the bar stool cause they hurt so bad) these are not.
I don’t know if it’s my increasing leg work outs (urggggg! Lol) but these shoes. Come with a delectable price tag ($20.99, score!) and they can be paired with almost anything from cute jeans to a sexy sexy dress.
This was a win,win situation for me.

Get the shoes yourself:

Pushing the Envelope Weekend edition

So this was my weekend outfits.
And both outfits probably cost me under $100.00 (shoes included), so you can look fab on a budget even when your a big girl.

And the winner is.........

Ughhhh my skin looks horrible that close up…lol.
Let me get back to the subject at hand….
So yesterday I wanted to do a head to head competition of eye primers. Since most makeup affecionistas know that urban decay primer potion is like the GOLD standard in eye primer,but it cost $20?!?!?! For 11ml, do you know that ain’t even a teaspoon worth. Uhhhhh way too expensive for some stinking primer (insert Tony Montana voice here, lol). I wanted to find a cheaper dupe that was more in my range but provided the same quality. So I looked on YouTube (Got to love Youtube!!) and xCherryBo0m7x (a makeup affectionista like myself) recommended NYX high definition eye shadow base. So I went on to my other favorite website EBAY! (teehee) and ordered some up for $4.50 ( a 16.50 savings from primer potion) and tried it out for the head to head competition.

Both eyes have the same make up on BH cosmetics (2nd generation palate) and the right eye is Urban Decay and the left eye is NYX winner is…..

Urban Decay!!!!!! But only by a smidgen to me. Both held the pigment and although a Urban Decay has a smudge of black that I’m sure didn’t start out there, I’m sure I just didn’t blend enough. So at the end of the day, will I take the plunge and fork over the $20.00 for primer potion….. Helllllll NO! You know how many lipsticks I can get with that?!?!?!?!?!?

What’s your opinions on my review….

Off to go book a facial stat!! TTYLs loves!



The many looks of me

I figure how can I blog about style and beauty, if you’ve never seen even a micro glimpse into my sense of style.
So I decided to do a collage with a bit of my style and some of my most favorite looks from the past year. As you can see my size fluctuated and I am determined to get back into at least a 14/16, but look fabulous while doing it.
So I went a mini shopping spree with my Christmas gift cards, everyone knows the best sales are the day after Christmas, and I can’t wait to rock these outfits. I definitely pushed the envelope because everyone knows big girls aren’t supposed to do printed jeans, but I love them so much!!! (insert squeal) Can’t wait to post them!!!!!
TTYS dolls!
