Yup. One of very few colours to have a name and it's called Kazoontite. When I created this colour it was the first thing that I thought of. Yeah, I wasn't too pleased that that's what it reminded me of. But I'll be honest, when I wore the colour for the first time, I was in love! So, here it is! (I'm having sizing issues today, so please click on the picture to see the full size image)

- Kazoontite all over lid
- GOSH Highlight under brow
- Lise Watier Folie d'Or on inner corner working out onto crease
- Smashbox Jetset liner
- GOSH Mascara

Will Sell...

I just want to let everyone (yes, all 5 of you) that I will eventually be selling the eyeshadows that I create. Once I get a good variety going, I'll be posting them to sell. For now, it's just as I go and use them. So, if there's a colour you want me to try to create, let me know! Leave me a comment, send me a message on facebook, or even text/email/msn me if you're one of my close friends!

Don't forget, feel free to ask me questions! I'll answer them as best as I can :)

Some Background info

Talk about slacking on my part! Not only have I not posted in a couple days, I also haven't made any shadows either! I now have 1 follower (take that as a cue people.. Start following my blog *smiley* ) and haven't given her anything to look at!

Well, I have done an orange look the other day, I'll post some pictures tomorrow once I revive the battery in my camera.

In the meantime, let me give you a little background:

I'm just about turning 25 (give me about 12 days) and haven't always been into makeup. My mom's not really into makeup either, but she was the one that did it for me for my prom. Yes, Grade 12 Prom. I had just started fiddling with makeup in grade 11 roughly. I think it was only a cream champagne type colour and some mascara.

I really started playing with it the first year of College. I think that's about the time a friend had introduced me to Lise Watier's cosmetic line. I instantly fell in love with her loose shadows. I started experimenting a little with colour - but no more than maybe 2 colours on the lid. At this point, I only had a small fraction of my makeup collection. Sponge brushes only, about 7 colours, 2-4 liners, mascara and that was probably it.

Once I finished college is when it really started. A little more foundation, introduced to bronzer (yes, I was about 21 when I learned about bronzer..) experimented much more with liners and colours. Continued enjoying Lise Watier and then Gosh when it came into the drugstore.

Then, it was my never ending search for a primer (search has ended just over a year ago now). Here I was, experimenting with makeup and in a couple hours it would just crease because of my oily lids! I was so annoyed. I had tried a primer by Lise Watier, M.A.C's Prep & Prime, Benefit and another brand or two that I can't think of and they all left me disappointed.

Finally my search ended when I moved out of the small town and about 6 months later a Sephora opened. It was the best store I ever walked into - however my wallet would not agree. I found my Urban Decay Potion Primer (this is the best I have ever tried - and I've tried more since) and expanded my makeup ten-fold!

Which of course, brings me to now creating my own makeup to save me money :) I wont lie - if there's a colour I absolutely love or a new Kat Von D palette that comes out, I do buy it.

So what's your makeup story?  Got any questions? Feel free to ask!

First set of Colours...

Alright, so they're not the first colours that I made. It's more like the 9th and 12th. But it's officially the first set going up on the blog! yay! Most of my colours don't have names yet. Just numbers  :)

I don't usually have bright shadow on, but I figured that if I make it, I gotta try it at least once. And I must say, I got quite the compliments at work about my makeup when I wore these colours. 

#2 (like I said, no names!)

"Black Cherry"
#2 applied all over with Black Chery to outer V and crease

In natural light... in the car

Just as a note: I used Urban Decay Potion Primer (UDPP) on my lids before applying the colour. It lasted me all day (from about 11:30am - 12:30am  - yes, 13 hours)
