I think it’s because I’m pregnant. However, I am always trying to think of ways to improve my image. You know, get all the attention away from my new huge belly. Sadly, the harder I try the sillier( not sure if I made this word up)
Recently I tried out some make-up tips for a night out. After seeing pictures today on a friends page of my new new make over, I saw how horrible the make-up looked to the world lol. My face was at least two tones lighter the my skin color! I am not afraid to admit that it was a complete mess.
Lesson learned? Relax, there is no need to try so hard. My skin is beautiful and glowing while I am desperately trying to cheapen it with gaudy make-up
-_- how long with that center color stay without smearing tho lol? Anyhow beautiful!
Jelly Ombre Lip and Big Doll Lashes (feat. Shu Uemura Gloss Unlimited)
It’s said two-toned lips are in this season. But I’ve been doing them for so long I wouldn’t know the difference, honestly.
I don’t usually use glosses to do ombre lips, because there usually isn’t enough of a visual contrast. But when I saw a very dark shimmery wine shade in the Shu Uemura Gloss Unlimited range, I immediately thought “stained jelly lips!”
In the grand tradition of the great Uemura-san himself, I swopped things around and did my lips before my eyes. Uemura believed a lip color could be applied first and thereafter be the deciding factor for the eye and cheek makeup you choose.)
I think if I ever want to cross over from adorable young woman to milf(lol) I need long red nails. Yep. P.S. this mom this is still a “knee-slapped”

For starters, I do not blog. I will not consider myself a blogger.
However, I felt the urge to document my pregnancy. Maybe one day, my child
Will read it and realize how lame mom was at 22.
