Makeup challenge fail + FOTD, finally!

So, you can probably tell from the lack of updates how miserably I failed my FOTD challenge. I did maybe one look right after that post, but I ended up getting so lazy!!! >.<  Lol, oh well, you girlies would’ve probably gotten sick of my face anyway. Seriously, I hate myself for giving up so easily, but I do realize that making myself do five consecutive FOTD’s might have been a little too much!

Anyway, I managed to put a look together with the help of the hubby, aka mr. camera man, and I am really proud of how it turned out. I did wear a toned down version of the look to school this morning, but I decided to spice it up for the FOTD. So here it is, and I’m calling it “Pretty Ruthless”. Lol, please help me work on my naming skills!


This is a close-up of the eyes, the color is much more blue/gray IRL (courtesy of my 88 warm palette), but the flash and my hubby’s sucky camera skills failed to capture the true color. :D


I used:


88 Warm Palette ( silver, metallic blue, matte black)

Lancome Definicils Mascara

MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack


MAC Studio Sculpt in NC35

MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW 30

MAC Blush in Cubic

MAC Dazzleglass in Soft Dazzle

Here’s another one of me trying to be “model-esque” but sucking at it! The hubsters said I looked good in it, so I just wanted to show you guys.

In other news, I’m pretty frustrated with life right now! I know I’ve brought it up a few times, but college life really is taking a toll on me, both mentally and physically. I’ve been breaking out like crazy and gaining a buttload of weight. The hubby still says I’m sexy, but he has to say that – I think the whole, “you look good baby” package came with the wedding ring! I know I brought it upon myself (taking 7 classes this sem. + 2 in the summer just so I can graduate this fall), but sometimes I feel like the pressure never ends. I really can’t wait till December – I’m planning to throw a big party and hopefully be able to take a much-needed vacation next year. Sorry for unloading all of this drama here, hope I didn’t talk your ears off. Till the next time ladies, muah!


  1. Love the look and the top! Cute on you!

  2. Oooh, I love this! I noticed you didn't do the five day FOTD's, and I was slightly sad, but this makes up for it. Your eyeshadow is gorgeous! I think I want to try it on myselfff. Good luck with your college courses! 7 classes must be terrible :( But at the end of the year, you'll look back on it and be really proud for pushing yourself that hard, right? :)

  3. @ Krystal Leigh - Thank you, I love this top!

    @Sulora - Thank you, I'm still a noob when it comes to blending skills, but you know what they say: Practice, Practice, Practice!!!
    As for college, true. I may complain about, but taking this much right now will considerable ease my load for my last semester. :D

  4. I love the look! Don't worry I feel your pain about classes!!! I am too breaking out like crazy! Cystic acne! And they are the worst! Anyways, I don't know if you have heard of Mario Badescu's drying lotion, but they are amazing for acne!

    Oh and thank you for commenting on my blog!

  5. @Djosell: Thank you. I have heard of Mario Badescu's lotion (a lot of bloggers rave about it), just haven't had the time to purchase it. :D

  6. Hi Rita, I really like your blog layout,very pretty!

    You did a great job with the look and I love the dazzleglass on you. =)

  7. Great post, love the make-up.


Show me some love
