Make Up: Peacock Inspired

This post is for MakeupJUNKEE’s Peacock Contest. I recently made a huge purchase from Cherry Culture and I have a peacock hairclip lying around so I thought why not!






But I got some naggage on spending too much money on stuff I "Don't Need" such as 10+ different shades of lipstick...

Technically I don’t need a lot of things. I don’t need color contact lenses, I don’t need 20+ pairs of shoes, in fact, I don’t need make up, I don’t need TV, I don’t even need to shower everyday. I won’t die if I don’t have/do those things.

I don’t need to look good, no matter how unattractive a girl is there will be some guy out there would still love to tap that sh*t. Can you say Jerry Springer?

But I do want these things. Because I know I can look better if I take care of myself and make a better impression to the people around me. So really, I’m just being the best that I can be ;)

If you want to know what I bought below is a pic of my Cherry Culture purchase. For the look above, I used the Amuse Eyeshadow Palette and the NYX ultra pearl loose eyeshadow for the eyes. NYX "Pink" blush for the cheeks and oh I must say that NYX volume mascara is AMAZING. I threw out my cover girl XXL right after I use the NYX hah!



P.S I'm behind on everyone's blog again, but I promise that I will catch up!

  18. Say it loud and proud! How can anyone tell you not to buy stuff just b/c you don't need it? It's like saying, you don't "need" to be happy! Not like you say anything when various people go out and spend tons of cash on video games or computers which are only slightly different or better than the ones they already have!

  23. Julie! I've never heard of Amuse. Is it good?

    I love your first picture (woot, your chin looks as if it can cut paper there!)! And your eye makeup looks crazy good =D

    Have you used any of the MBD masks that you bought?

    Really? It's slightly sticky? Hmmm... maybe you can try Rohto Hada Labo's Lotion Light after you finish Aquamoist? It shouldn't leave any stickiness =D

  24. You look beautiful! You know I would love to do your makeup one day, I just love your features! LOL. The eye makeup is beautiful and I adore the winged liner. You should definitely do more dramatic looks<3

    Oh yeah, I totally forgot I asked you to put the blossom necklace on hold for me. Invoice me next week?<3

  27. have you ever win anything by the way? I've already told you before, that you should win all contests!

  28. You look gorgeous in that makeup! You are so talented at putting makeup on in different ways and I have to admit I'm kind of envious. Lol. I can't even put makeup on the regular way.
    I know what you mean about not "having" to do any of that stuff. Some guys are just gross and will do anyone or anything. But it's the real nice guys, the keepers, who like a girl with good hygiene and who loves herself enough to look pretty. :)

  29. I'm gonna scoop up that mascara now :P I'm a junkie!

    Your look is gorgeous, I don't think I'll be able to enter because I'm booked with school :D Good luck to you though dear! You did GREAT :)

    Having to get nagged about that much isn't very deserving on your part.. I should be the one getting nagged! My ish is everywhere because I keep ordering new stuff and have no more room since my boyfriend and I share a small little bedroom :(!!

  36. Bright peacock galore! Amazing vibrant colors! =)

    I probably won't be carrying wigs. The closets that I will carry to your want will be wavy clip in, which you will still need to clip, but just no curl needed. Hope that helps. Also I will carry clip in highlights in different shades of color. =)

    I'm currently still planning everything out, but will keep everyone updated. =)

  37. aw thanks :) I definitely need some luck for my finals. Your peacock looks is amazing, especially the feathered eyes! And I agree with you- just because we don't need the accessories in life doesn't mean there's something wrong with having some of them to make ourselves better.

  45. You look hot! Peacocks are hot too! :D

    I agree with you, make-up about enhancing what you already have. You may not necessarily NEED everything to live, but there's limitless amount of things in this world that we don't need but still have. Does that dude need those rims?
