Super Duper Cheap Lashes from eBay, MUFE Makeover Gift, and Skeleton Face Attempt!

OK SO I BROKE MY GOAL OF NOT BUYING ANYMORE MAKEUP =(
..and not just the items shown here...a LOT more! =(
I already own like a gazillion pairs of false lashes, but....I found a sweet deal on lashes off of eBay - 40 pairs for $12! Here is the seller
You get 4 different styles, but you don't get to choose. I'm not a fan of those thick ones, looks draggish. Plus, it also includes eyelid glue and the pusher (which I don't need)
After I purchased them, I found even better deals =(
Like 50 pairs for $13, and this one you get to choose..and 100 pairs for like $22 - but that's just too much! lol
Anyways I ordered these on the night of the 10th and I already got them in!!

















Yea those thick ones wouldn't stay in place...they're not stuck on with adhesive like the Model 21 lashes.




































I received an email from Sephora, promoting a Make Up For Ever Event, giving consultations, and then you would receive a free pouch, so I debated for so long whether to make my appointment before or after my shift. Thank GOODNESS I scheduled it AFTER my shift...because OMFG the MA did a horrible job on me....I didn't even take pics of it, it was THAT bad...I wanted to get my makeup done after my shift so that the MA would see my makeup skills that I had already applied to my face, but nope....it was just really really bad...but whatever not like I was going anywhere afterwards.
Anyways I only ended up purchasing the Aqua eyes liner, two other products I wanted they were sold out of.
































And here's my attempt of Petrilude's Skeleton Face on my bf - I did this while he was sleeping! I know it's not too great, I didn't evne have all my materials, and I did this really quick cuz he kept moving his head, then it would smudge on the pillow, and I was getting frustrated!

Kryolan Aqua Colors

































Ok so I made a goal for myself that I would not buy ANY more makeup until September after this purchase. I REALLY hope I make it...I ordered this about a month ago so I think I'm doing pretty good...
Anyways I ordered these off the infamous Shrinkle from eBay cuz I wanted to practice some Halloween looks on some of my friends since they had asked me to do their makeup this coming Halloween (I know it's waay ahead of time!). I had already tried a few months ago the skeleton face on my bf and it looked mother friggin awesome except since I didn't have the white face paint I used normal dry eyeshadow and it brought the look down so I am so excited to try it again, this time with no excuses!
So these are the Kryolan Aqua Colors that are water activated. I use a mix of water and mixing medium to apply. I must note that I LOVEEE the smell of them...I dunno how to describe it...kind of like pastries or cakes? So far, I've only swatched them and they're a bit of a hit and miss.
The metallic silver which was the most expensive was the sheerest out of all. I literally did 10 coats in the swatch...it doesn't apply even...I was hoping to do a terminator look with this product...I guess that's out of the question =(
The white took a couple coats but I am pleased.
The black I LOVEEEE omg in the swatch that was only ONE COAT!

Makeup Night!!






Yea so me and my girls were bored so one of my friends suggested I go get my makeup and do everyone's makeup...So we went to my house and I dumped like half of my makeup stash into bags (at this point I really wish I owned a traincase) then went back to my friend's house...I have never really done anyone's makeup before and I must admit it's not very easy working with different eye shapes...especially Asian eyes that are smaller than mines! You can see I got kinda tired by each girl lol it was late plus they weren't going anywhere..so yea i realize the eyes are not all even or perfectly blended like i would like...and they did not have the luxury of the colored lenses and lashes like I do =)
P.S. Thanks to my girl XINAROX for taking most of the pics and washing my brushes muahaha


Moly (Isn't she so photogenic??)














































































Jennifer (Sorry no before shots, but trust me she looked so much older with her makeup, she is very innocent looking)





















































Diana
(I will admit, this is not my fave look, we couldn't decide what look to do on her, I forgot to do some key steps but I was tired and it was late - plus I never brought any lip shades so we just gave her the jizz lip with concealer lol)
