Finding the perfect black shadow can be quite the challenge for makeup enthusiasts and artists alike. After I came across Corrupt by Makeup Geek, I wondered how I had managed my whole life with my other “black” shadows. After that purchase I couldn’t help but compare other black shadows to this product. Below I have some in store comparisons for all those out there looking for intense black eye shadows.

Tennessee Mini Vacay

Good gracious, I have been busy! I took this little vacation about a week ago and I am just getting to blog about it. Can I just say “Woot! Woot!” for school being back in session! Now I can get back into the swing of things and maybe even get a regular schedule going again. My summer has been super packed with guests (perks of living by the beach) and as much as I love hosting and taking care of others, I am exhausted! Now I am not complaining about having a bunch of company because it was nice for a change.  Being a military family, we usually have to do most of the traveling to see any friends or family.

The first Lorac Pro palette has become a quick staple in my daily routine so there was no doubt about purchasing the second palette once it was released. I was so excited to buy this palette that I checked my local Ulta every few days until it was stocked in store. I am not going to go too deep into description since I already touched base on it in my first Lorac Pro post. But I will say that this one is just as perfect as the first one, except it features all cooler toned shadows. I will bullet some key notes below along with the swatches for your viewing experience.

Nails: Bold Color, Polka Dots, & Flowers


So I got creative today and decided to actually put some effort into my nails. I love creating different nail designs, and always do cute things for my daughter’s nails, but haven’t done anything cute on myself in a while. I keep my nails pretty short now that I have started playing guitar and I have decided that I need to get over myself and start making cute “short nail” looks. So here we go!
