Another opening, another show!

Last night, I had the honor of going to the opening night of Stephens College Performing Arts Department presentation of Legally Blonde: The Musical.  It was a beautifully done show with amazing talents performing which I am so lucky to call my friends and classmates.  I did my makeup all nice and pretty for the show but not in pink!! Instead I chose colors that matched the water color pattern of the skirt of the dress I was wearing.
For my lips, I used my ever loved Revlon Just Been Kissed balm stain in Sweetheart because it really does stay put and it's a lovely bright color.  On my cheeks I used the brand new Revlon Baby Sticks color for lips and cheeks in the lightest color, which is a mix of a light baby pink and  a coral- it's really lovely and goes on really nicely, expect a review soon!  For my foundation I used my new Revlon Photo Ready foundation, and I've totally fallen in love with it.  I think I may have fallen in love with the whole Revlon line, at least the Photo Ready section of it!
Please excuse the icky eyebrows, I hadn't groomed them in a little over a week!  To create this eye, I used my BH Cosmetics Eye Shadow 88 color palette, #2.  I first primed my eye with Revlon Photo Ready eye shadow primer, I'm still on the ropes about the packaging but the product is great!  I put a base of a light teal/ocean green blue non shimmer all over my lid and then took a light forest shimmery green and put it on the inside half of my lid and then on the outside and the crease I used a bright, shimmery blue.  Up into my arch I dusted a yellow/gold shimmer color as a brow highlighter as well.  I finished it all of with a few swipes of my Covergirl Lash Blast mascara.
I love getting to play around with bright eyeshadow colors and designs, do you have any makeup that you love to try new things with? XOXO

Garnier Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Cream: REVIEW

Here is my review on the Garnier Ultra Lift eye cream!
Okay, so I don't have wrinkles yet but your skin starts to really age when you get into your 20's so I figured start to treat the problem before it starts. It comes in a little glass jar, and I think I got this for $11 at Walmart.  It's a bit pricey for the size but you don't have to use that much each night so it will last you a long time.  I am really pleased with this product, I put it on every night and when I wake up my eyes don't feel so dry or 'sleepy eyed' when I get up.  That was always one of the things that I hated when I got up, that around my eyes would be really dry and gross but this product has helped to combat that.  
Do you have any anti-wrinkle products that you are using as a preventative measure? XOXO
