HiFi and some Fyrinnae


After taking advantage of HiFi's sale this weekend, I realized how long neglected my HiFi shadows had gone.  I put this together for a day at work and instantly fell in love with HiFi's shadow, Eclipsed the Sun.  It is a gorgeous duochrome color shifter that would compliment any eye color.

Simple LOTD using drugstore products + Hair Extensions!!

Hello all!!

I've been doing a terrible job of keeping up with my blog and all of your posts...  soon I will catch up!!!
Today's LOTD is the type of look I always need more of.... quick, matches with any clothing type or color and uses easily accessible and inexpensive products.  The eyes can be thrown on in just a few minutes, even with the falsies because I find the demi lashes to be so quick to apply!

The extensions were purchased at a beauty supply store and are the clip in variety.  I really love them and think they are so much fun.. I just need to improve my application of them as I'm certain some of the wefts are visible from the back of my head :)  They are natural human hair and I just lightly curled them with my natural hair with a very large (1.5 ") curling iron to help them blend into my hair a little better.

Products used:
Wet N' Wild Nutty all over lid to just above crease
Maybelline Natural Smokes Quad - matte dark brown  to line lower lashline and smudge into outer upper lashline  Matte Ivory color- highlight on brow and inner corners.
NYX Cream Cheese to add some shimmer and light to browbone
Prestige Waterproof liner- black waterlines
Jordana Liquid liner- Black upper lashline
NYX Demi false lashes 

Cheeks are Milani Luminous Blush
Lips are Maybelline Color Sensational Lippie- Peachy Scene
