(57) & macro friday

After thinking about it for probably 2 years, but never "booking" the time to go.....I treated myself for a trip to Mac Cosmetics for some new eye shadows!!!! Lucky for me, my husband's best friend's littlest sister is back working there so I could get some advice from someone I would trust.
I can't tell you how long it's been since I changed my eye shadow......or wore it consistently....but now I have a day and night "look"!

Might as well post the above photo for In the photo Friday over at La Buena Vida.
And for Macro Friday over at Blogging from Bolivia, I took this photo of 3 of my new colors!

Love them - I really need to do the same thing as I always use cheap eye shadow.

Good for you:) I did that last year after I went short, short, short with my hair... I was feeling like I looked a little boyish so a trip to the cosmetic counter was exactly what I needed. Have fun with it!

Great shot! I LOVE new make-up. Although I hardly wear it I am a sucker for sharp packaging! It is fun to get new looks going. I feel like I always wait far too long before getting a new color of this and new shade of that. Nice pics!

I love Mac - and there's nothing better than having a makeover. My fav summer eyeshadow is Stila's Kitten - a super pearly eyeopener. Nice shots!

Courtney said...

Great shots! Very different and creative.

The makeup looks beautiful! I wish I were even halfway talented when it comes to makeup!
