Been Feeling Neutral....

Hi Y'all.... It's Friday, yeah for the weekend!!! I'm jealous of every single one of y'all who are at the IMATS this weekend. I'm with you guys in "spirit".... I haven't been up to much, trying to save money for my trip to the ATL in July. I'm still trying to set up apartment tours while I'm down there for my family reuions. My goal is to be out of CT by Septemeber *crosses fingers*....

I finally started to depot my MAC shadows!!!! The palette in the pic is one that I bought from Mrs. Kalilia during a drunken stupor (I also bought the 4 colors on the left side of the palette. So far I've only depotted one color. I ordered more empty palettes from MAC during the 25% off sale along with a few pan refill shadows!! What's the point of paying $14 when I can pay $11 and just pop them into a palette.

Depotting Laboratory
I also have been pretty good and not buying much. I'm trying to "work" with what I have and practice my technique more. I've been drawn to neutrals lately, I think because it's been raining here on and off for the past 3 weeks..... :(
My mom thinks that I'm crazy and that all these colors are the same... I told her maybe to the "untrained eye"....... Then she wanted to know where I got my "training" from
*No base used, applied with a q-tip
I've also been loving colors from my HG Palettes...

Urban Decay Ammo Palette
It's a little sparkly but not too sparkly. I've been using Smog & Oil Slick for my crease (not at the same time). Sin is a great highlight on me.
The Balm ~ Shady Lady Palette
Caught in the Act Courtney is probably my #1 crease color at the moment.....
Since it's been so drab and cold, I've been using my MAC MSF almost everyday and I'm so in love with the fresh and dewy glow it gives me! I know as soon as it warms up I wont be reaching for this as much. I can't do liquid i the summer. I sweat too much, which really sucks because my face is the only place on my body that 'perspires'....

When the sun does decide to make a cameo, I've been lovin' this Sugar Palette that I got from Linda the colors are soo pigmented & vibrant.
That's really it... Not much to report... As my Grandma would say "no news is good news"....

XoXo

P.S. I'm still not feeling the Benefit Creaseless Eyeshadows :( I've been using them as bases instead of as shadows

I'm trying to get more neutral shadows, I have too much color. lol

But I want to depot my shadows, but then I don't. A lot of people been saying for B2M they won't accept the container without the metal pan... and some are saying others accept it w/out.

what colours have you been using for the cut crease look? it took me foreveeeer honest! at first I put the line too high and it looked sooo unnatural :\ I'm hoping to get more practice though cause I want a nice clean line!
