Something Blue

Livingaftermidnite

Something Borrowed & Something Blue were my books of choice on my recent vacation. Actually it wasn't even really a choice, more like Christine stole my Kindle our first day at the beach to start reading Fifty Shades of Grey & Liz happened to have Something Borrowed in her bag. I love the movie & always meant to read the books, but just never got around to it!

Of course I read both in like 3 days & when I was done reading I actually cried...seriously who cries at the end of a book?
Apparently this girl right here!

5 books down in less than a month...what will be my next read?
I heard A Vision in White is a good series...has anyone read them?
((you know if I end up reading it be prepared for a post with that name & me in a white outfit))

21 Jump Street

Livingaftermidnite
So I watched 21 Jump Street yesterday...
sorry let me start over...
So I watched 21 Jump Street TWICE yesterday.


Remind me again why I never saw this movie in the theater. I literally was hysterical laughing out loud, tears in my eyes, snorting (yes I snort when I laugh too hard). And any movie with Channing Tatum is worth seeing (yes I'll be seeing Magic Mike...don't pretend like you're not going to see it).

I so desperately want to put a quote (or 2) in here, but no matter which one I choose it will have at least 3 curses, some type of sexual innuendo and inevitably offend someone...

So just go see it...like now.

Now the dress...tell me it doesn't scream "Florida Vacation"...alright maybe it screams "Elderly Print Florida Vacation" either way I'm loving it!

Nerd City

Livingaftermidnite - Nerd City
My right eye is killing me. I drove to work yesterday bitching the entire time that the second I actually pulled into work I went to the drugstore. I stood in front of the "Eye Care" section staring for about 10 minutes before I finally called my mom and asked her what to do. I ended up getting these ridiculous eyedrops that requires me to not wear my contacts for 30 minutes. Let me just explain...me without my contacts is me not being able to see a foot in front of me. So I attempted to work ((key word being attempted)) for thirty minutes without contacts. I literally was sitting on my knees, hunched over my desk, squinting at the screen...I swear you can't make this stuff up. So 30 minutes passes and I put my contacts back in...let me rephrase I put my left in, then when I tried to put my right in it felt like someone was stabbing me with a knife. Long story short ((not so short considering you just read the long part)) I spent 6 hours of my day with 1 contact in. Not only was I partially blind, but I felt ((and probably looked)) cross-eyed. And driving home...well that adventure would take an entire other post to explain.

Hope you like my nerd glasses...

Amused

Livingaftermidnite - Amused
Since I skipped mark. Monday yesterday we're just going to call this Makeup Tuesday!!!
I have a big issue finding the right bright lipstick to compliment my skin tone & as my mother says "my big mouth" literally & figuratively ((love you too mom!)), but when I got Tarte's Lip Crayon in Amused I knew I HAD to make it work ((most perfect watermelon color EVER!)). So I got bored & started fishing through all my lip colors that I had but never used & I stumbled across Clinique's Chubby Stick in Mega Melon! Mega melon is an awesome color, it just doesn't look quite right on me. BUT when mixed with Amused it creates the perfect watermelon color for ME! 

Have you ever mixed lip colors together to make them work for you?

1. Start by prepping your face with mark. For Goodness Face Moisturizer. In the nice weather this is pretty much ALWAYS the first thing I put on my face before any makeup because it contains SPF 30. Follow with my FAVORITE NEW PRODUCT ((well not exactly new...but new to me!)) Benefit's The Porefessional Primer. I literally couldn't live without this primer. It has the slightest tint of color and I use it to conceal my giant pores while creating the perfect silky smooth canvas for my foundation. Apply Clinique Redness Solutions Foundation to entire face using a foundation brush. Set your makeup with mark. Matte-Nificent Oil Absorbing Powder, one of my top 5 mark. products, I don't think I could live without it!
2. Now for the eyes, start by rolling NYX Roll On Shimmer in Nude to entire lid. Then take a blending brush and lightly apply MAC Eyeshadow in Carbon to crease and blend. Using an angled eyeliner brush apply MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack along upper lashes and wing out. Finish by curling lashes and applying 2 coats of mark. Lash All You Want Mascara in Black to upper and lower lashes.
3. Contour face by applying mark. Bronze Pro in Pro Golden to hollows of cheeks, forehead and jaw line. Using fingers apply MAC Cream Color Base in Shell along cheek bones and anywhere else that needs highlighting.
4. Apply Clinique Chubby Stick in Mega Melon to lips & finish by applying Tarte Natural Lip Stain in Amused on top concentrating on the center of your lips.
