Make Up For Ever 15 Artist Shadow Palette – Limited Edition – $59.00

I absolutely love this palette and it is worth every penny I spent. These shadows and just about every shadow they make is creamy and bendable. One thing i have noticed with these eye shadows is you don’t need an eye primer to get the vibrant pigmentation. One swatch and you are in heaven with the payoff of these shadows. The durability of these shadows lasted me a good 8 hours and with no creasing.

This 15-shade palette featuring the breakthrough Artist Shadow formula lets you create endless eye looks with infinite combinations. The advanced gel-powder formula blended with ultrafine pigments provides vivid color payoff and superior blendablilty. An artist’s favorite, Artist Shadow leaves a smooth, even finish that gives lids super-saturated, lasting color. Arranged into five easy-to-apply color trios, this extensive collection ranges from soft, subtle neutrals to daring bolds and brights.

Milani New Palettes “AMAZING”

New Milani Eyeshadow Palettes Released for Spring 2016!!

These milani shadows do not disappoint at all. If i had to come down on any shadow it would have to be the blacks in the palettes. They are not as pigmented as I would have liked to see but beginner friendly for sure. ALL the other shadows have amazing quality, swatch very pigmented and blend nicely. Not bad at all Milani and I will be on the hunt for the one palette I did not find and that is number 4.

Take on your day, don’t let it take you…

inhale_confidence

When i  wake up I choose to take on my day. Set the stage for how your day will be instead of the negative thoughts determining how your day will be.  I’m interested in making my day the best it can be so I look for the beauty in the day every chance I get.

I start with a regular routine in the morning of looking my best so I can feel my best. From taking time to moisturizing to picking out my mood outfit of the day, it all is an effort in making it the day you want it to be. If your hair, makeup and outfit is feeling great there is a chance your mind is already feeling great.

You also could drink water and eat in the morning to inspire. Don’t eat something that is going to slow you down or put sludge in your tank. Eat healthy and take your vitamins while you’re at it. All of this is an effort to set the stage for your day.

One last thing to watch out for in your day is negativity. Make it a point to treat that as a shove to the left or right and keep it moving. Line-backer it up and redirect all the negativity so you can stay making your day the best it can be. I make my days, i don’t let them make me… You go ahead and have yourself the best day you can. Make it your day now…

Beautiful life if you want it,

Cheryl

Happiness

Something I’ve been thinking about is happiness. What makes you happy? I had to learn the hard way when i was younger. I thought people, religion, boyfriend, friends things or places made me happy. In growing, I learned YOU make you happy. The only way to b truly happy is to work on yourself. Work on who you are, who you want to be and what you want to do in life. What will be your legacy? How will people remember you? Its not easy to start to venture into your inside self. Its very personal. You really get to see inside and all the past and what it has made you. You will find things you dont like and start to understand different things about you. Some may not be nice but if you can get through the not so nice, you can start to find all the great things about yourself and focus on that. This ends up pushing you into a more motivated individual. You start to really focus.

Then… you bloom, develop into strength and something to be proud of 🙂
