Closet Confessions: 30 Day Shoe Challenge DAY 22

DAY 22: Wanted Cowboy Boots
Livingaftermidnite - Shoe Challenge Day 22
I SWEAR that I'm not going to neglect this Challenge anymore. These 30 days have lasted 4 months. & the worst part about it is that I have most the photos I just am taking FOREVER to post them!! 
This stops NOW. I'm finishing these last 8 days in the next 8 (or more...who are we kidding?!?) days.

I'm trying! The biggest problem is that I've been wearing my gym clothes to work 2 or 3 days in week in hopes to make myself go to the gym after work. So my outfits have been pretty uneventful!
Livingaftermidnite - Shoe Challenge Day 22
Livingaftermidnite - Shoe Challenge Day 22
Now onto the post...when I looked at these pictures all I hear is Bon Jovi's "Dead or Alive" playing in the background. 
"I'm a cowboy....on a steel horse I ride..."
Did I really just quote Bon Jovi on my blog...there's a first (and last) time for everything.

On another note I do feel like every girl needs a pair of cowboy-esque boots in their wardrobe. I am a total New Yorker but somehow I'm always gravitating towards these boots!

SHOP mark. on SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY!


You, the customer, are our everything. Spending $100 at Walmart or another big store during the holidays won't make a difference to anyone; but spending $100 through a home business owner on Christmas means our business can continue; it gives us our pay, earns us our promotions, meets our sales quotas, and helps us educate and inform without using harsh sales techniques. The big stores will not care about you the way we will because unfortunately, you don't mean that much to them. You mean the world to us - shop a home business for Christmas this year ♥

Closet Confessions: 30 Day Shoe Challenge DAY 21

DAY 21: Sonoma Buckle Boots via Kohls
Livingaftermidnite - Shoe Challenge Day 21
Livingaftermidnite - Shoe Challenge Day 21
These boots are literally my fav. I know I say that about a lot of my shoes but these literally are worn 4 out of the 7 days of the week during the Fall because they go with everything. I love how worn in they look and they are only getting better with time.

As for the outfit...Like the yellow neon shirt wasn't enough I had to add on a bright pink scarf, plus the light blue of my denim jacket! Go Big or Go Home!!! But I'm seriously loving the combo of these colors.

GlassesUSA

WOW so who has heard of GlassesUSA.com? 
Until a few days ago when I was approached by them I didn't either
...but boy am I glad I know about them now!

I've been wearing glasses since I was 10...so for 14 years! I started wearing them just to see the chalk board in school but graduated to wearing them full time right around High School. While you usually see me with my contacts in on my blog I really do like to wear my glasses.

The one thing I don't like to do is having to go to the eyeglass store and try on a million pairs to find ones that look good on me! GlassesUSA.com takes that unpleasant part out of the equation! Not only are all of the frames categorized so that you can easily find what you are looking for, the Virtual Mirror on their website allows you to upload a photo of yourself and virtually try on ALL of their eyeglasses frames!

It literally can't get easier than that! Not only does GlassesUSA provide you with a super easy way to pick out the right frames for you...but their prices CAN'T BE BEAT!!! Cheap glasses starting at just $38 in all styles....and thats INCLUDING the lenses!!

I can't wait to trade in my old pair of frames for some brand new ones from GlassesUSA.com...you never know they may even make an appearance on here!

If you're in need of new eyeglasses like myself check out the AMAZING deal that GlassesUSA is giving to my readers in honor of "THANKS" giving!!!
Take 20% off any frame in their iSee Eyewear collection and get free shipping within the US. Code: iSee20FS
or
Take 10% off any order of prescription glasses. Code: Blog10
GlassesUSA - Livingaftermidnite
Loving these Lady Liberty Frames!! ONLY $74 PLUS another 10% off including the lenses!

mark. Makeup Monday: Blue Chrome

Livingaftermidnite - mark. Makeup Monday
Nothing like brightening up a Monday morning with a little bit of neon! For some reason I've have this Blue Chrome Metallic Eyeliner for awhile and never used it but its seriously awesome!! One of mark.'s most popular products is their hook up liquid eyeliners because they are so incredibly easy to apply thanks to a stiff applicator & a price of only $6!! Lauren Conrad calls mark.'s Liquid Liner her absolute favorite! So every time you see her rocking her signature winged liner she's using mark.!

I left the rest of my face pretty neutral and let the blue chrome stand out! Then after putting this neon yellow shirt on it had a little bit of competition. Just because its Fall doesn't mean everyone doesn't need a dose of neon sometimes!

The Ladies of Twilight's mark. Red Carpet Moments!

Not only does mark. Brand Ambassador, Ashley Greene, rock mark. on the Red Carpet, her co-stars are falling in LOVE with mark. also!! 


Here are a few of my FAVORITE mark. Looks that the Ladies of Twilight have sported on the Red Carpet...& how to recreate them on yourself for your very own red carpet moment!
Ashley Greene - mark.
~Ashley Greene Get the Look~
Face: Prep face by applying mark For Goodness Face Antioxidant Skin Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 all over your skin, followed by mark Light Bright Lighten & Depuff Eye Gel under your eyes. After creating a clean, hydrated canvas, apply mark Speedway Do Everything Makeup with a concealer brush and blended with your fingers. Next, use mark Conceal For Real Long-Lasting Hook Up Concealer around your eyes. To warm up your skin tone and compliment your bone structure, add mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder to temples, under cheekbones and to jaw line. Set the look by applying mark Matte-Nificent Oil-Absorbing Powder to your t-zone.

Cheeks: For a natural glow, use mark Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush in After Glo on the apples of cheeks and blended outward. Then, use a touch of mark Glowdacious Illuminating Powder on the peak of your cheekbones and on your brow bones to create a warm flush.


Eyes: Start by applying mark Get Bright Hook Up Highlighter in Natural all over the lid to create a radiant canvas. Next, smudge mark I-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Gioia at the lash line, blending up toward the crease, outward at the corners and under the lower lashes. Then, add mark No Place To Run Longwear Eye Liner in Jet Set and mark On The Edge Hook Up Liquid Eyeliner in Cleo at your lash lines for depth. Finish your eyes with a few coats of mark Lash All You Want Mascara in Black. Use mark Brow Factor Hook Up Clear Brow Gel to create clean, well groomed brows.

Lips: For a bright coral that brings light to the face, use mark Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Cha Cha mixed with mark Lipclick SPF 15 Color Shine Lipstick in Hot Stuff. 



All items can be picked up @ http://jgiardina.mymarkstore.com

Nikki Reed - Mark.
~Nikki Reed Get the Look~
Face: Apply mark Min-A-Real with a foundation brush. Use mark Good Riddance concealer in Light/Medium under your eyes. To the apple of the cheeks, brush on mark Just Pinched in Cheeky using a foundation brush. Then dust Matte-nificent powder in Honey/Golden with a powder brush to set the look. Layer mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush in Hush Baby over Cheeky, using a blush+bronzer brush. This will make sure the blush will last all day. 


Eyes: Prep the eyes with Please Hold Eye Primer in Light/Medium. Apply I-Mark in Minx to inner eyelid, as a highlighter, using the all over eyeshadow brush. Then apply mark On the Dot Eye Palette in the dark taupe brown shadow to the lid, blending it outward, using the eye shadow brush. Use an angled contour eyeshadow brush to blend and soften the shadow into the crease. Then smudge the same taupe color eyeshadow(Dots) along the top and bottom lashline using the eyeliner brush. Finish the eyes with two coats of mark Scanda-lash Mascara in Blacklash to the top and bottom lashes. Also, groom brows with mark Brow Factor Clear Brow Gel. 


Lips: Use mark Color Shine Lipclick SPF 15 in Cupid.


All items can be picked up @ http://jgiardina.mymarkstore.com

Kristen Stewart - mark.
~Kristen Stewart Get the Look~
Face: I started by applying Mark For Goodness Face Moisturizer all over her skin. Next, I used Mark Face Xpert in Nude and applied it with the foundation brush. I put Mark Good Riddance Concealer in Fair/Light around her nose and under her eyes. I set her foundation with Mark Powder Buff in Nude using the powder brush. For blush, I dusted Glowdacious in Prettied Up on her cheeks by using the angled contour face brush. 


Eyes: Prep the eyes with Please Hold Eye Primer in Light/Medium. Then, start with On the Edge Liquid Liner in Cleo along the top lashes. Then smudge I-Mark eyeshadow in Corset along the lashline, over the Cleo, using the hookup eyeliner brush . Smudge Corset along the bottom lashes as well using the same brush. Then, apply Earn Your Metal Liquid Shimmer Liner in Silverado along the bottom liner. To finish the eyes, use two coats of Lash Splash Mascara in Black. 


Lips: Use mark. Lip Click lipstick in Coral Fixation.

Rachel Bilson + Steve Madden + SHOES = PERFECTION!!!!!!

On Black Friday...exactly one week from today...you won't see me heading to the mall to wait on some ridiculously long line for an awesome deal...I'll be perched at my desk recovering from a massive Thanksgiving meal refreshing my browser 100 times until SHOEMINT is launched!!!

Of course I've already signed up for emails so that the second the limited collection is released I'm notified!


Livingaftermidnite - shoemint
I've had a major girl crush on Rachel Bilson since The OC was on the air...I don't know if it was her impeccable style or the fact that she got to kiss/date/do other things with Seth Cohen (Adam Brody - my dream boy!) or a combination of the 2. There's one this I do know and its that she has a knack for rocking the most amazing shoes!! And since you all know my SLIGHT obsessed with all this shoes - she's pretty much my idol!
Livingaftermidnite - shoe mint
These super cute pale pink Mary Jane platforms are the only images so for that have been released. If all the shoes are as amazing as these I'm going to have a SERIOUS shopping dilemma...as if I don't already!

Happy Breaking Dawn Friday!!!

Of course I was sitting in the movie theater last night at Midnight with a giant bag of popcorn & Twizzlers counting down the seconds until the lights got dark & Breaking Dawn Part I started on the screen!  Are you a Twi-hard like me??  Not only was I decked out in my Twilight t-shirt but I was sporting some of Ashley Greene's Favorite mark. Products!!!

Instead of spoiling the movie for those of you who haven't seen it yet I thought I would share our favorite vampire's favorite beauty products when she's not slathering on the pale makeup for the movies!  Ashley Greene not only stars as pixie haired Alice Cullen in the Twilight Series, she is also mark.'s Brand Ambassador & one of the HOTTEST stars in Hollywood right now!

Closet Confessions: 30 Day Shoe Challenge DAY 20

Day 20: ALDO Qualheim Suede Ankle Boots
Livingaftermidnite - Closet Confessions DAY 20
When I couldn't get my foot into the Steve Madden Pembrook Ankle Boots I nearly cried! I was literally waiting for 2 months for them to come in the mail and when I tore open the package and tried to shove my foot into the shoe I died a little bit inside. I went to return them at the Steve Madden store in the mall and walked out super depressed. Shoes should make you happen not sad!! As I was walking to the exit I strolled by the ALDO window and saw these babies, walked in and tried them on...when I zipped them up I literally heard angels singing!! HAPPIEST GIRL EVER!!

I have a really high instep and slip on shoes are sometimes a challenge for me. These ALDO ones have a zipper and fit PERFECT!!! They were literally made for me, SO SO HAPPY! Does anyone else have these or one of the hundreds of similar pairs?
