Thanksgiving 2012 Face Of The Day

I have been looking forward to Thanksgiving since the day I found out I was pregnant and became more ferociously hungry than a newborn vampire.  HAHA (WTF?  IDK why this strikes me as a valid, funny statement.  I am going to chock it up to pregnancy brains!)  Anyway.  I had very little time to get ready and I have been breaking out quite a bit lately so I spent the majority of my makeup time on my complexion.  

Anyway, I went very simple on the eyes and lips.  I used all matte eyeshadows for an understated look and I really liked the way it turned out.  

My hair is 2nd day curls touched up with some dry shampoo and another go with my Remington T-Studio Pearl Ceramic Curling Wand.  I was very pleased with my hair.  It stayed looking great all day.  I have never done second day hair a day in my life because it looks oily very fast but the curls helped disguise the high shine and the dry shampoo worked amazingly.

I used the Billion Dollar Brows pencil on my eyebrows and I looooved the way they turned out.  Very natural looking, but if you have ever seen me without my brows done you KNOW that these aren’t my brows.  haha

I had a tonnnn of pictures I snapped before running out the door and I couldn’t pick and choose which ones to include/toss so I just added them all.  Sorry for the abundance of pictures that look the same.  

All of them seemed to catch different lighting and show another dimension of color.  I felt that it could be valuable for whoever is reading.  You may be interested in one of the products I used, and seeing the product in a few different lights may make you want it more or less.

I started getting silly toward the end and took a “crazy girl” shot.  :)  It was too funny to keep from you all.

And last but not least, a close up of my lip combination.
