Ancient Egyptian Series

So, I have decided to start a series based off of Ancient Egyptian Gods, Goddesses, icons, symbols, etc. I decided a long time ago that I wanted to do such a series because ever since I was a little child I was obsessed with the Ancient Egyptian culture and mythology. I will not try to make looks exactly like the hieroglyphs, statues or artwork but instead the looks will be inspired by whomever and whatever I am choosing at that moment. 

So, without further ado, we shall start the series. I am going to start with Isis.

Isis was considered the patron saint of women, mothers and children. She was also a goddess of magic. Isis is also a moon goddess, yet gives birth to the sun, creates and sustains all life. She is wife to Osiris and mother to Horus. I could go on and on, but you could look her up.

Here is the look that I came up with for her, nothing too elaborate:

My Belated Valentine's Day Look

I am posting my Valentine's Day look a bit early because my boyfriend and I didn't get a chance to go out until yesterday. I did a orange type look. So, here it goes.

Changes Coming Mixed With A Tiny Rant

So, I will be making some changes to the design of the blog when I have the time because I finally finished my Makeup Artistry course and have made my business cards and resume. Being the graphic designer that I am and the OCD that I have about things matching, I just HAVE to make the page layout match it. Eventually, when I build up my portfolio, I will be able to use my web design knowledge to make things as I wish.

Oh, I figured that I should mention this because of a rude comment that I received on my Sugarpill review. I am not one of those professional bloggers, I have a day job and work and I started this blog to share info, looks, ideas, etc with my friends and people that I converse with about makeup. I believe that it would be really cool to meet new friends and associates along the way. I figure that I should state that I type my blog the way that I speak. I believe that it is easy to follow and understand, but if it's not, you really don't have to read it or follow me. I spellcheck everything that I type normally but I do have my little made up words and when I use them I normally note it.

That being said, I accept constructive criticism, I welcome it, but I don't think that people should ever try to tear another person down just because they think that they can, should or have the right to. Remember, if you can't think of anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. I think that is really wrong and I will delete any comment of that sort. I have a day job and a two year old child and do not wish to come home to such negativity. Thank you to everyone that has been so nice to me, I really appreciate it. Thank you for being constructive and leaving positive commentary. You are all much appreciated!

Sugarpill Cosmetics Review

Yesterday I received my order from Sugarpill. I have been anxiously awaiting this package because I have seen swatches online and have heard how awesome and pigmented these shadows are so I had to check them out for myself.

I already had an inkling that the loose powders might be worth checking out because I received a sample of one called Goldilux early last year when I made an Ebay from Shrinkle aka Amy for some Kryolan colors. I was intrigued because she also sent an interesting flyer and Sugarpill sticker along with the sample and my order, I digress. LOL.

So yes, the box arrived today and a cute box it was, I actually contemplated keeping it but I am not sure what I could do with it, so I put it in the in the recycle bin, but I took pictures of the package and the inside before I did.

Updates coming

I have a few updates coming. I am a little behind on things because I can't find my USB cable for my camera. Before tomorrow night is over I shall have my Sugarpill review and swatches up and in a day or two there will be a look that I am trying to get down that I am entering into a contest. Then I have a look that I want to do that should start a series and I'm going to be posting some other looks as well.

So, I have things in the works and I plan on having things rolling starting tomorrow night!

Okay, that's about it. Until tomorrow night...
