FOTD, visiting my BFF & Giveaways

Hi beautycallers. Hope you all are having a nice weekend.

Yesterday was a happy day but a also a sad day. I visited my best friend Emily and her 4 month old son Nathan. He's SO SO SO CUTE! Next week she is moving to Maryland because her husband just began his fellowship at Johns Hopkins University. Yes it's an incredible an opportunity, but sad because she will no longer be close by. It's not "goodbye", it's "see you soon."

Unfortunately because I was running late (what else is new) I wasn't able to do as an elaborate eye as I wanted to. But it's all good :)





(It looks like I'm sleeping here but I am awake)



FACE
Bobbi Brown corrector "light bisque"
Clinique airbrush concealer "neutral fair"
Jouer Cosmetics luminizing moisture tint "pearl"
Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush "tipsy"
Tarte smooth operator Amazonian clay finishing powder "bronze"
Tarte Amazonian clay shimmering powder "champagne"

EYES
Smashbox Brow Tech To Go "brunette"
Anastasia Brow Duality "matte camille/sand shimmer "
Tarte emphasisEYES clay shadow stick "bronze"
Tarte emphasisEYES waterproof clay shadow/liner "black"
Loreal luxurious color eyeliner "navy" (I've had this liner forever, I don't believe this particular line is made anymore. I can barely read the wording on the pencil, hence it's time for a new navy liner)
Tarte Amazonian clay mascara
Mally LightWand Eye Highlighter in tear ducts

LIPS
Sue Devitt lip enhancing gloss "coral sands"


Emily before gloss w/ Nathan

Applying gloss on Emily. Wish I could have done her entire face but that was not happening with Nathan around. It's ok b/c I had SO much fun playing with him.





I found this picture/quote about best friends & friendship. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Remember, best friends don't come around very often, so make sure your best friend knows how awesome they are. Here's to you Emily:

Thank you :) Most of the bronze shadows I have tried looked brown on me, maybe because of my dark brown eyes. But not this one.

I know how crappy it is to have a loved one move away (my bf.) I'm sorry you have to deal with such a situation.

abbeautycall said...

Thank you. It's all good. She's only moving to Maryland which is about a two hour drive. It's not she's going to CA. Now that would be a HUGE bummer

I love love love that taupe color on your eyes! Is the main color the Tarte stick in bronze? Very cute!!! I saw that you're following me on Twitter (@hittingthepan). Have you considered posting this entry on the site (www.hittingthepan.com)? It's basically going to a be a site where beauty bloggers can share their posts and find inspiration and tips from other bloggers (think foodgawker or tastespotting but for beauty products). I think this would be a great submission! Anyway, I've added your blog to my Google Reader... Can't wait to read more!

Thank you Katrina for sharing this info with me. The only color on my eyes is the tarte shadow stick in bronze, no taupe. Earlier today and now I am checking out your site and looks great.

Love your blog! And I love that quote about your best friend...it's so true! ;) I know you're going to miss your friend & her baby so much. Hopefully you'll get to see them often. I'm fortunate enough to write a blog with my best friend & we also work together everyday at our 9to5 job. I don't know what I'd do without her!

We'd love for you to come over & visit our blog sometime! Drop us a comment if you do. :)

Thanks!
