I waxed my eyebrows last night with Surgi Smooth’s 3-step waxing Kit (it was actually the Brazillian Kit Retail:$25).  I actually won it on twitter. It works great. I also waxed my “happy trail” – no pain.  I’m going to try & tackle the rest of it later on tonight .:lol:

Chocolate & Vanilla Eye

January 26, 2010

This isn’t one my favorite, but I’m still going to post it.  I used the 120 Palette 2nd Edition.  I just got it so I have to try it out, which is why I’m using it so much now.  Plus, I LOVE it already!

Here’s a pic of the palette for reference again.

  1. Brow bone for Highlighter: Matte Cream E/S – 4th row, last column (Bottom half of the palette) & Shimmery vanilla/cream E/S 2nd Row, 8th Column (First top half of the palette)
  2. Crease: Matte Brown E/S Last row, Last Column (Bottom half of the palette). Shimmery bronze E/S last row, 2nd column (Bottom Half of the palette)
  3. All over lid: Shimmery vanilla/cream E/S 2nd Row, 8th Column (First top half of the palette)
I lined my eyes with MAC’s black track gel liner, and used YSL’s Volume Effects Mascara
I appreciate any comments and/or suggestions.
