It seems a lot of makeup on a face but it really isn't, is it? The look I was going for was a neutral with a kick of smokey eye shadow. The cheeks and lips were subtle since the eyes were the main focus for the eye, I didn't want to draw attention to the lips or cheeks - otherwise it would've been a hot mess.

For those who are interested in makeup: READ ME! There's actually a Warehouse Sale up in Markham, Ontario. I've been there once and I've stocked up on a few makeup items. Basically, this warehouse sale carries: Clinique, Estee Lauder and MAC for sale and I have to admit the sales were amazing - and I'm talking about 50%-70% off! Talk about a great deal. This event happens every three months in a year so there's one happening on June 4th, 5th, 6th so mark your calenders! This sale is only by invites but people are putting it up for sale on Craig's list and Kijiji - So my advice is to get those tickets soon before they run out!

Where? Markham Fairgrounds (McCowan & Elgin Mills) / Time? 9AM - 5PM / When? June 4th - June 6th weekend

Damn girl - those smokey eyes are killer. And to be honest sometimes it takes MORE makeup to make it look like you're not wearing much (haha if that makes sense). I'm so hesitant to stock up on makeup because I'm too stupid with it to ever make much use of it. You should put up tutorials!
