How To Apply Eye Shadow To Deep Set Eyes

Hey friends! Well, I’m a little frustrated! I’m trying to do more videos but it’s sooooo hard. I watch a lot of videos and I’m not satisfied with mine yet.

The only way I know to get better is to keep doing them. So I know I’m going to look back on this and think, “that’s horrible!”  Actually I already do—-bad sign.

Anyway, some of you emailed me and asked if I would show you how I use the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. So this is my feeble attempt.

How to apply eye shadow to deep set eyes

Because I have deep set eyes, it’s a How to apply eye shadow to deep set eyes video. Thanks for being patient with me!

(I fast forward a little bit of the video on purpose. It was getting too long for me.)

Did that help at all?? Should I stop while I’m ahead?? :-)

Here are the products I’m using. If you click on the product, it will take you to Amazon, if you’re interested in ordering.

Favorite Products Video!

Good morning! Today I’m sharing some of my favorite products I’ve been using this summer. It’s my July/August favorite products video.

My Favorite Products Video

I made a mistake in my video so I’ll clear it up now. It’s not Avines Love Shampoo and Conditioner it’s Davines.

I also mention Cara in my video and her blog is called maskCara and can be found here. She talks a lot about eyebrows! She’s a professional and does amazing makeovers.

If you are wanting a good tutorial on eyebrows you can go here. She tells the color of shadow to use if you’re a blonde, redhead, or brunette.

Okay, here’s my video and I’ll list all the products that I talk about!


1. Davines Love Shampoo and Love Conditioner

2. Benefit Cosmetics They’Re Real! Mascara

3. Mac eyeshadow (brun)

4. Tresemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray

5. OPI Nail Polish Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It 

7. Benefit Cosmetics Lemon Aid

8. Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

Beauty For the Heart~~ One thing I ask from the Lord, his only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. Psalm 27:4

Skin Care Products That Really Work

This is one of those hot off the press posts! This morning on The Today Show there was a segment from Good Housekeeping about the best anti-aging skin care products.

So in case you missed it, here are some of my favorites!

Skin Care Products That Really Work

This was the gold winner for day cream moisturizer, Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair. It has a 30 SPF, Yay! The best thing it’s only around $21!

Skin Care Products That Really Work

Boots No. 7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream was the gold winner for night creams. Again the price is great, around $21.

Skin Care Products That Really Work

Lastly, I would love to try this eye cream, Avene Retrinal Eyes. It has to be bought through a physicians office so I’m going to check with my dermatologist. It’s around $44 which is less than the eye cream I’m using now. This eye cream was the silver winner (the gold one was $260, which is out of my price range).

Skin Care Products That Really Work

Well, I just wanted to share this with ya’ll. If you’re like me, you’re always looking for good skin care that will slow down the aging process. Sometimes I think I wake up with a new wrinkle every day!

Have you tried any of these products? Don’t you love good products that don’t cost a fortune?

Unlock Your Softer Side with Suave Body Care

Unlock Your Softer Side

Everyday life can be rough, but Suave® Body Care is helping women everywhere realize that it doesn’t mean they have to be.

Suave is teaming up with TV host, author and mom Wendy Williams to encourage everyone to Unlock their Softer Side, from their skincare routines to their mindsets.

Wendy is “softening” up with Suave – a departure from her typically edgy attitude and opinionated take on the juiciest headlines – and encouraging her fans to do the same on the Suave Beauty Facebook page.

  • Fans can find out their softness score, check out Wendy’s tips and have the chance to win a free product at www.Facebook.com/SuaveBeauty.
  • If Wendy – who has a low “softness score” – can transform everything from her attitude to her skincare routine – so can everyone.

The first step to Unlocking Your Softer Side starts with hydrated and moisturized skin with Suave® Naturals Body Wash and Suave® Skin Solutions Body Lotion.

I have to say, I have DRY skin, I mean extremely dry skin. Using a lotion every day is absolutely necessary for me.

Suave Smoothing Body Lotion is rich and creamy and leaves my skin feeling super smooth. My favorite scent is cocoa butter and shea. It smells like summertime to me!

Suave® Skin Solutions Body Lotions are also dermatologist tested and provide 24-hour moisturization with new richer formulas.

Suave Naturals® Body Washes come in a variety of fun, fresh scents and are infused with natural ingredients that leave skin fresh, hydrated and delightfully fragrant.

The great thing about using Suave® Skin Solutions Body Lotion and Suave Naturals® Body Washes is I don’t have to spend a fortune to have hydrated and smooth skin.

I’m also usually in a hurry in the mornings but both of these products help simplify my morning routine. I especially love having a pump bottle for my lotion.

So what about you, have you tried Suave Naturals® Body Washes and Suave Smoothing Body Lotion? Do you struggle with dry skin like I do?

Why not give these products a try; I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

My New Favorite Lip Balm

L'Oreal Lip Balm
It’s no secret that I have an obsession with lip balms. I can’t seem to have enough of them. I recently tried L’Oreal lip balm and it’s my new favorite.

I’m using the color Nourishing Nude #818. It’s one of those “barely there” colors that I love using in the summer.

I can carry it in my pocket and put it on without using a mirror. It feels great on my lips!

I also love that I can pick it up at CVS Pharmacy or Wal-Mart and they have a variety of colors to choose from. It’s also reasonably priced.

Have you tried any lip balms lately? What’s your favorite one?

Sun Labs Self Tanning Lotion

If you’ve been reading my blog for anytime, you know I’m a fan of self tanning lotion. I realized along time ago that tanning beds and hours in the sun damage my skin.

There are hundreds of  good self tanning lotions and I haven’t used them all but I have used Sun Labs Self Tanner and I love it! (I was introduced to Sun Labs from Cara and she blogs at Maskcara.)

I use the medium tint and I think it would work well for most skin types. I apply every 3 to 4 days to keep a healthy glow. {Disclosure: Please know that if you make a purchase using a link on this page, I may earn a commission and I am very grateful for your support of this site. Thank you.}

Sun Lab Self Tanning Lotion

This is a picture of me without using the Sun Labs tanning lotion. I have olive skin and I tan easily if I’m in the sun.

This picture is taken after using the Sun Labs tanning lotion consistently. It definitely gives my legs some color.

Sun Labs Self Tanning Lotion

I typically apply it to my legs, arms, and décolletage area. If you want to see how to apply it all over, check out this post by Maskcara.

I use latex gloves when applying it because it will stain the palm of your hands. If you don’t have gloves, use baking soda to wash it off after applying.

Now that I don’t spend hours in the sun or go to tanning beds, I think too much sun looks unhealthy. I guess because I know how much damage it’s doing to my skin. I like just a touch of color.

Do you use self tanning lotions? What’s your favorite self tanning lotion?

Beauty For the Heart~~I don’t think I’ve shared this quote with you but sometimes I forget which ones I use. I saw this one on instagram and I thought this is how I want to live my life.

“I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.” -Diane Ackerman

Do you follow me on Instagram? I love it share pictures throughout the week. Also my facebook page is a great way to connect with me!

Have a blessed day!
