Golden Orange and Pink look with Hi-Fi cosmetics

This look is from a few days ago. I've gotten behind on posting as well as reading/commenting on your bloggies so I'm trying to play catch up today and this weekend. :-) I hope you all don't think I'm ignoring you. Running my own business is so very time consuming and doing everything by myself is rewarding and exhausting at the same time. Things have picked up a lot recently. I'm getting more orders, emails and with that always seems to be more difficult requests/custom orders. Nothing I can't handle but I'm just a very busy gal right now. I hope you all understand and thank you for your patience.

OMG I appreciate you all so much! It's really wonderful being able to connect with other women about beauty, makeup and things that make us feel pampered. It's not something I have with many of my personal friends. Most think I spend too much time/money on makeup and I wear too much. Although I have a tiny handful of real friends who are obsessed like me. You know who you are! So it's really awesome to have other gals out there like myself that don't think I look like a clown every day. So thank you for following and thank you for your awesome blogs that not only inspire me, but also make me realize even more that we need to do things for ourselves that make us happy and not worry about what others think. Das right!

So with that being said I still plan on doing a give away. Honestly, I'm waiting on a trade order from Aromaleigh for the swatching work that I did. I have some things in that order that I want to include in the giveaway so until it arrives, I will hold off on the giveaway. I will also be including some other fun things that I made myself. I think I will make this a contest sort of giveaway to make you lovies work for it. Trust me, it's good stuff!

I have a few more looks to post today so be on the look out for more soon. :-D


  1. As always, fuck you for having awesome skin :P I love how you used two colors for your lower lid, it looks really pretty.

  2. 5 o'clock looks awesome. The look is really pretty :)

  3. Yeah it's fine, I know what it's like when you suddenly are so busy and have no time to blog so much.. Of course the personal life is nro 1 priority, blogging comes after. :) And well, the blogs won't disappear anywhere while you're gone, just start catching up whenever you have time. :)

    And I love this make up! Amazing colours. x

  4. Love the combo, so vibrant look :)

  5. Another jaw-dropper. :P I love orange and pink together, but am really intimidated by it myself, so when someone (ie, you) pairs them so flawlessly and beautifully....SQUEE!

  6. You are one of the most beautiful creatures I have ever seen, and also, you are extremely talented so please the next time someone tell you that you use too much makeup, ignore it!!! because you are an ARTIST and you face is your CANVAS!!
    anyway I am on my way to your store, hehehe
    shopping shopping here I come! ღ

  7. I can't wait to get my hi-fi order! These look really beautiful, love the colour on your lower lashine especially!

  8. How bright!! :D I have yet to try Hi Fi. It's on my list for sure.

    IKWYM about the makeup thing and how nice it is to connect with others that feel the same way online. I know my family and friends think I'm nutz!!!

  9. Orange on the inner bits = KICK ASS! So pretty but the orange makes it that much more awesome! I still can't get orange to work right on me :( It dun like moi.

    And if I have makeup fail days, I keep it on and roll with it, cuz then at least we all can say we have the balls to do so :P Besides, a fail to us makeup junkie freaktastics could be a complete win to someone else. And that's win-win all around!! wooot!! :)

  10. Congrats on your business picking up! (does it make sense??) lol
    It's good to know that you're not uploading because you're busy with work, go for it, girl!
