The hubby and I took a quick road trip to Atlantic City this past weekend for a friends birthday party/masquerade ball at the Revel.  I had a little bit of a tough time finding a dress that I was comfortable with wearing as I have gained a little bit of weight lately.  But I found this super cute black lace and cream dress in the juniors section in Macys.  I was a little self conscious as the dress was a body con dress...but I put on my spanks and paired it with some plain mary jane type patent leather pumps and thought I looked pretty hot for my date night!  

Because we checked into the hotel a little early and had some time to relax I was able to take a little more time with my makeup.  I went back and forth in my mind as to what look I smoky eye...or a nice neutral eye.  So I mixed the two and I love how this neutral yet smoky look turned out.  I used my Wet N' Wild vanity palette for this look and paired it with a nude lip.  I was kind of feeling myself a bit this night lol.  Below is a list of everything I used.  

On the eyes:
NYX brow pencil in dark brown
Kevyn Aucoin sensual skin enhancer to clean up brow area and to conceal under eyes
Wet n' Wild Vanity 6 shadow eyeshadow palette
ELF 6 pan palette (the black in the smoky palette to deepen the outer-v)
Wet n' Wild gel liner in black
Rimmel London day to night mascara
Red Cherry Lashes #43

On the face:
MAC studio fix powder foundation NC43
Ruby Kisses mineral powder in Cognac to contour
Milani blush in Mai-Tai
ELF Healthy glow bronzing powder in Warm Tan

On the lips:
Wet n' Wild lipstick in Bare it All (#902C)
NYX Lipliner in Natural
NK Lipshine gloss in Taupe

Petal Pusher

I've been challenged to make use of some of the palettes in my stash that rarely get used.  So, today I decided to break out my Wet N' Wild Petal Pusher 8 pan palette.  I will do one more look this week using this same palette.  Probably a nice purple smoky eye...ya'll know I love a good smoky eye :) Below is a list of all the products I used to achieve this look.  Do you have any palettes in your stash that hardly get used?  If so, then join me in this challenge.  Dust them off and create some looks.
