I didn’t really explain that I’m on vacation, but if you’ve been seeing my twitter updates.. you may of caught on. I’m on vacation in Minnesota visiting one of my really close aunts. She has always been like my second mom and she means the world to me. She has always visited Chicago for every birthday or any occasion that is special to me or my family. She has always been there and I’m so graceful for that. It’s really nice to be here spending quality time together.. I haven’t seen her in over a year.
Having a picnic in the park..
We went to the casino as soon as I arrived… I looked terrible. lol wasn’t really expecting to go anywhere after a 7 hour drive..
Warming myself up by her awesome fire place. lol my aunt loves taking pictures. I blame her for any type of photogenic-ness I have today and for my love for photography. Shes always behind the camera.
Having lunch by the lake
lol, my aunt made me take a picture by this..
I got a free sundae 😉
Wouldn’t be Minnesota without some cows!! haha
I’ll be sad to leave.. but hopefully I’ll be able to visit more often. 🙂
Here’s my face of the day..
I never usually apply my liner like this.. I usually only apply if halfway on my top and bottom lash line.. but I noticed in photos my eyes looked very small. So I decided to apply my liner across my whole top lashline a little thicker than what I’m used to.. to make my eyes look larger and more round. And, apply no liner on my lower lash line to make my eyes look more open. I really liked how it looked and I’m sure I’ll be wearing my liner like this more often.
Prepped my skin with Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel (first time using this)
Applied MAC Select Cover Up Concealer in the shade NW25 to my under eyes using my MAC 190 Brush.
Applied NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in the shade Stromboli to my face using my fingers and blended lightly. Then, I buffed it in using my MAC 131 Brush to better blend it.
Applied MAC So Ceylon Mineralized Skinfinish to my cheeks using a powder brush.
Set my under eyes with Rimmel Lasting Finish Translucent Powder (love this!)
Maybelline Define-a-Brow Pencil in the shade medium brown
Shiseido Mascara Base
Covergirl Volume Exact Mascara
Shu Uemura Eye Lash Curler 😉
