Day 21: Batman

if you missed yesterday's video...well good for you! haha

This week we start something new, NAIL WEEK!

it's going to be fun, and a nice break for my eyes
Today is the villains of Batman:

I started with Seche Base to even out my nails (and then topped all the final nails with Seche Vite)

On my middle nail I applied Quick Sand by Sally Hansen for "Two Face"

The first and pinkie nail got a quick coat of Black Out (Sally Hansen)

Wet Cement on the ring finger for "Penguin"

and Paper Chasing (china glaze) on the thumb

Happy Go Lucky by China Glaze for the actual logo...

I used the black and white sally hansen Nail Art Pens for the detailing of all the looks

and that's it...

Day 17 & 18!! whoops

so i did post both days...just forgot to blog it
my bad!

anyway, tuesday was 80's halloween makeup a'la Joan Cusack in "Working Girl" it twas GOD AWFUL, check the video if you didn't see it. Trust me. it's a fail

but today was the real fail
you see I started recording about 8pm (Top Model was on, I was busy) so I finished one look decided to move on to another look which ended up not working, but the point is I should've had 2 sets of footage to edit. I start to process the clips and they aren't on the memory card. I know i recorded bc the little red light was on...WTF

so I've already taken off my makeup so I go back and just record one eye...cuz i'm pissed off...on that same card. Guess what. It doesn't record AGAIN! wtf.
Luckily I had another memory card so i filmed ONE MORE TIME...and it finally took, but in that last set of footage I was so pissed off I didn't even do a live tutorial, I just walked you guys thru it. I'm sorry, but I always say: Project 48 stops for nothing...but today it was seriously this {-} close to not being up today.

Day 12: The Pheasant

wtf is a pheasant you might ask...well it's a bird. duh.
mostly they have some kick ass tail feathers and ppl like to hunt them, that's about all i know.
Not a big fan of bird hunters...but yeah, that's a whole 'nother blog.

here we go:

Started off with Rubenesque paint pot from Mac
Next i used a pink/red shimmer (from the BH cosmetics 120 palette) on the lid and winged the tip out toward my brow:

an orange shimmer over and blended into the red

and a royal blue to finish off the outer corner

in the inner lashline I used a bright yellow to mimic the yellow around the pheasants eye skin

and then a lavender shimmer to the outer lashline

Kohl rimmed with a black liner

black mascara

and finally the Urban Decay pocket rocket in James to the lips

ta-da! ;)

and finally a darker royal blue to fade out the outer corner

with a smaller brush I swept a black/charcoal shadow in the inner crease, blending upward

Day 10: The Snowy owl

what's up guys! yes, i do have an eye patch on in this video...and probably the next few videos.
why? well as you know i was sick and now my poor left eye has a slight infection, this way i'm not contaminating my makeup by applying anything to the effected eye and also not making you look at that unattractiveness. anywho...

as always i'm starting off with nyx jumbo eyeshadow in Milk as the base

then a creamier white from the bh 120 palette
a true white (I used Gesso from MAC) in the inner corner
followed by a light grey/silver (from the 120 palette) in the outer crease.
I applied a yellow in the inner corner (chrome yellow would be perfect here)
and then lined with a black liquid liner and smudged with a shimmery charcoal.

finished up with black mascara and filled in my brows

I used an unknown lipgloss from Balmshell (it's a medium toned sheer pink)
and then a frosty gloss from Este Lauder in the center to give my lips a fuller pout

thats all folks..hope you liked it!

see ya tomorrow

Day 9..,
