FOTD Friday: Flashback & Contest Winners


It has been a super long week, yall. I have had A LOT of good news, most of which I will share later, but I have also had my share of exhausting busy-ness. But I can’t complain. I’m the type that feels “funny” when my life isn’t in overdrive.

To continue on with the Mascara Monday rewind, I decided to post some of my boldest FOTDs. Most of these were done when I was living in Los Angeles and playing in make-up really became not only a hobby, but….a friend. I spent hours every night trying to come up with some creative ish. My skills weren’t so hot but this was really when I looooved eyeshadow.

My first week in LA….I really had nothing else to do but do craaaazy bold looks.

Ahhh, the Jigsaw piece. I had so much fun doing this.


Sunshine seriously consisted of 3 products. Loved this look!


Who remembers MAC Mi’Lady mineralized duo?


Awww….this is my FIRST all MAC look. I got addicted to MAC during the C-Shock era last summer and was all over that Wondergrass paired with Humid. And you couldn’t tell me nothin’ about those 3D lip glasses. I can’t believe that was only a year ago and I’ve moved 4 times since then!

That nude lip is sick! I’ve got to try to do that again. Loved this look….around this time, I started to tone down the BOLD looks and focus on pretty pinks/purples and neutrals.

If you remember these looks, you are serious a vetern Clumps of Mascara viewer! And I loves you for it!!

Now for the 2 winning Stila
Lipstick Contest Entries:

“I vote because i’m scared that if I don’t i’ll be paying 20 bucks a gallon for some gas in a matter of months. lol jk…

It’s important to vote because not doing so would be single handedly snatching away our voice. No vote…no voice. No voice…no song. I sing my song for the woman with sore feet who went against the rules and sat at the front of the bus. I sing my song for young children that got sprayed with fire hoses. I sing my song for abused & dominated women. I sing my song for shackled slaves. I sing my song for ME, and most importantly…for my future children.”

“It is sooo important to vote, especially in this day and age. Many people, especially women, have fought for our right to vote and have a say about the future of our country. As women, we are always affected by who our President because many issues affect us and our children – gun control, abortion rights, education, health insurance – the list goes on and on. If we don’t cast our vote and choose – we are being complacent and currently, letting men make decisions for us. Vote, vote, vote!! Especially this time – we need change so we can get out of the recession, improve the economy and spend money on important stuff – like makeup!”

-Shefali

I love how these ladies touched on so many issues in just a few words. True beauty lies not in this make-up bit we talk about but our cognizance of worldwide issues; and how they will affect our future. I love yall!! Shoot me emails so I can send off your lippies. Thank you to all of the submissions.

Support Stila cosmetics and VOTE!!!!!

……and be my friend. :)

Stay beautiful!
