In the past, I used Bare Minerals foundation--it was the only mineral makeup I had ever tried and I loved the effect it gave my skin. It never left my skin with an unnatural caked-in-foundation appearance and I was amazed that mineral foundation could give me such a great coverage. My only gripe was their color selection. I was between Fair and Fairly Light but found that they both had yellow undertones, while my skin has pink undertones. The yellow made me look a bit sickly, but I usually corrected the situation with blush and bronzer (which I always hate having to do).

My good friend Vars let me play around with her hair and makeup the other night. I wanted to keep things soft and pretty. She is a gorgeous girl with or without makeup, but I'm glad she let me have a little fun! (She has already reserved me to do her wedding day makeup---whenever that is! haha)

My cell phone for sure. I almost never forget it, but on the off chance that I do, I feel disconnected from the world. Pretty sad that I feel the need to be in constant contact with people-- even though most of the time, I can't be bothered to call anyone.
2. Favorite Brand of Makeup?
Probably MAC. It is what I own most of, anyhow. I am getting more into Estee Lauder at the minute, though.
100% peonies. They are just lush and smell divine.
4.Favourite Clothing Store?
It really depends what I'm looking for and what season it is. I frequent Ann Taylor Loft and Banana Republic.
Flora by Gucci and anything Chanel
6.Heels or Flats?
I usually wear flats because they are more convenient, but I definitely prefer heels.
7.Do you make Good Grades?
I've always been quite a good student. I usually get A's without much effort.
Deep bordeaux red
Nope. I've never really enjoyed them. They are filled with sugar and leave something to be desired in their taste.
10. Do you drink juice?
Not very often. I really just drink water.
11.Do you like swimming?
I do! I have a pool but rarely swim on my own. I enjoy splashing around with friends.
12. Do you eat fries with a fork?
Not at all. Fries are really more of a finger food.
13. Favourite Moisturiser?
Philosophy Hope in A Jar for sensitive skin. It is a life saver.
Eventually, but not for quite a while.
15. Do you get mad easily?
Not usually. I do occasionally with my sister, but that is because we are so close that when we do fight, its big.
16.Are you into ghost hunting?
haha...I enjoy watching Haunted on TLC, but thats the extent of my ghost hunting.
17. Any Phobias?
Bugs bother me, but they aren't a phobia.
18.Do you bite your nails?
Never have. Never will.
19.Have you ever had a near death experience?
Wayyy too many. But I'm still here :)
20. Do you drink Coffee?
Only occasionally. Usually only when I have to stay up. I really just drink water.

For my entry to Mizz Worthy's myths/legends contest, I chose the myth of the Furies. Three goddesses of vengeance: Tisiphone (avenger of murder), Megaera (the jealous) and Alecto (constant anger). They were also called the Daughters of the Night, but were actally the daughters of Uranus and Gaea. Without mercy, the Furies would punish all crime including the breaking of rules considering all aspects of society. They would strike the offenders with madness and never stopped following criminals. The worst of all crimes were patricide or matricide, and first and foremost, the Furies would punish this kind of crime.
I felt like they would be feminine but with a hard edge to them. Very natural, big hair. Pale, dewy skin. Emphasis on the eyes, as they are the window to the soul. I wanted to keep them dramatic and dark without using too much black. I like the warm pewter color that developed as it reflected the cold look in the eyes I was looking to achieve. Hope you all like it!

I was feeling lethargic the other day so I headed to CVS for a pick-me-up. I picked up the much talked about Revlon nail polish in Tropical Temptation. It's a lovely coral color--perfect for summer. I don't have anything like it in my collection.
