FOTD featuring Chopin and Drama Queen

To start, I would like to say that I am no makeup artist. I would say my makeup skills are about average. When I first tried out this look I was surprised at how good it turned out. Not to boast but this is probably the best makeup look I've ever done. Now let's just hope I can recreate it again. *crosses fingers*

This picture may look a little familiar to you hehe

Nail Art | Gradient Nails

For a long time I've been wanting to try doing gradient nails but honestly I've been a little afraid to. I know the technique seems easy but I was afraid of messing up. Well, a couple days ago I decided to finally give it a try.

Okay, okay! Don't make fun of my clean up job. I couldn't find the brush I usually use to clean it up with so I was stuck using Q-tips. Plus, I know my cuticles are looking a little dry. If anyone can recommend a good cuticle oil that would be awesome!

Hello Waffle Swatches

My love for indie makeup started a couple months ago when I discovered the subreddit indiiemakeupandmore. The two main reasons why I love indie makeup is because the colors are so beautiful and unique and because the customer service is (most of the time) amazing. If something goes wrong with your order, the owners are more than happy to fix it for you.

Now as I've said in my Welcome Post my collection is really small. So small that I've only tried one brand. Which brings us to this post, swatches of my very small collection of Hello Waffle eyeshadows. Some of these are sample sizes, some are mini's and some are full sizes. Now let us begin...

Full Sizes

All of these swatches were taken under sunlight. No primer was used on any of these except for Hearts and Schubert(NYX Milk).

I am very happy with my little collection so far. I love all of these colors! If you would like me to do a look using any of these colors just let me know in the comments.

Nail Art | Watercolor Nails

A couple days ago on the Reddit subreddit Random Acts of Makeup a user posted about a nail art contest that they have every week. This week the challenge was to do watercolor nails. So here is my attempt at it.

My right hand - Orchid | Violet Vixen

The technique was fairly easy to do, it was just a bit time consuming. If you tried this out or would like a tutorial on how to do this, just let me know in the comments.
