Fiery Fun Look

23 Feb

Hey guys…

I’ve been super busy at work, so I haven’t been able to post but I wanted to leave you all with something!!!

Check out this Fiery Look I created today! It’s so hot outside today, it’s almost 80 degrees! Beautiful weather, slightly windy, but I wanted to be a bit fiery and so to establish the look I used:

Magnolia Makeup & Spectrum Cosmetics

I love when you have two great companies that are also affordable and offer great cosmetics! Here you can see Magnolia Makeup (the larger jars) and Spectrum Cosmetics (the smaller jars & the sample bag) that offer very vibrant and bright colors… After applying my Bare Minerals Foundation, MAC Skinfinish, and eyeshadows, I came up with this look:

 While it looks rather soft, it’s very vibrant!!!!!! Let me show it to you up close!!

I took the Fiery Bronze color and applied it over my whole eye. I used the bright rid for the lid, the fiery orange in the crease, the bronze in the highlight area, and then the lemon yellow color for the inner part of the eye. I then took my blending brush and blended the colors in and that’s what created this awesome look! I even used a deep chocolate close to my lashes to kind of bring down the color closer to my lashes.. I’m really satisfied with this look! I love both Magnolia Makeup and Spectrum Cosmetics! While I used two different cosmetic lines, they both offer vibrant and bold shades! I think they all compliment my skin as well! I’m in love with it!!! I just wanted to share this with you all for now so you can try it for yourselves! I’m sure you can make your own fiery creation, and I’d love to see it!!!!

Until Next Time, Much Love,

Mrs. SPJ 🙂

P.S. I got home to this yesterday…

Hmm wonder what’s inside ….. STAY TUNED!

Spectrum is Spectacular!

27 Jan

So I’m a bit excited because,

A. It’s Friday
B. I’ve been doing alright with changing up my eating!
C. I received my Spectrum Cosmetics in the mail!

Now you guys know from reading my blog, I love makeup, but I’m always looking for more affordable products which is why I was so happy to find Spectrum Cosmetics on Etsy! I decided I was going to purchase these products, and was very pleased with their prices as many of my blog readers already know! Well I received them!! Let me just show you the beautiful colors I purchased:

Aztec, Dragonfly, Shamrock, Envy, Spring Fling

Very vibrant, and each one only cost me 3 bucks! Very affordable! When I first saw the colors I thought, “Geez these colors are beautiful! I wonder how they will look on my skin!”  Of course, you know I immediately took my eye shadow brushes because I was dying to know!! Well here is how they looked:

Spring Fling w/ a damp brush, Spring Fling, Envy, Shamrock, Dragonfly, Aztec


Beautiful right?!? I really couldn’t pick a favorite although I truly love Aztec! I realized I could create some really great looks and decided today I was going to go for the Green colors with maybe some Burgundy/Brown Liner. What do ya think?

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love it! I just wish I would have spent more time on my look this morning so you could get the total look! I did my look in about 5 minutes! The pigment is of high quality and even hours later, I’m still wearing it!

I’m telling you, this makeup is good stuff! You can even get it at a slight discount simply for saying you found out about it on this blog! I have a discount code that the creator gave, just in honor of my giveaway! Just in case you didn’t hear, Spectrum Cosmetics is  giving away 5 eye shadows in the colors of your choice to one of my faithful readers!! I think it’s an awesome giveaway! All you have to do is be a blog follower, like them on facebook (Spectrum Cosmetics), and leave a comment on my post about the giveaway! https://mrsspj.wordpress.com/2012/01/20/first-ever/! That’s it!

I’m so glad to share this opportunity with you friends! I’m also so happy that it is Friday and I’m so ready to enjoy a weekend of cleaning, relaxation, and fun!!!   What about you?

Until Next Time, Much Love, Mrs. SPJ 🙂
