Makeup Mania Thursday

If you know me, you know I have a great passion and LOVE for makeup! Anything beauty related I am in to, whether it be skincare, nail art, cosmetics, body care, perfume, oils, etc. You name it in that genre, I'm in to it. I'd like to be so immodest to say that I feel that I have a talent with makeup and color. It's something I LOVE to do and I would never ever tell someone they NEEDED makeup. Makeup to me is something that can enhance your natural beauty if you choose or you can let your natural beauty shine on through, au natural!

What I'm getting at is that I would never want any woman (or man to be PC) to feel as if they don't wear makeup they aren't beautiful. Nah, it's not like that. I've just always been a real girly-girl. I was busted wearing makeup in the 5th grade by my very nice teacher, Mrs. Steed. What did my Mom do? Well, she knew that I wanted to be a girly girl and feminine and instead of being punished for my sneakiness she took me shopping and bought me my first makeups. Age appropriate lip glosses and some pastel eye shadows. I wasn't "allowed" the rest until high school.

I'd really like to steer my blog in a new direction at least for one day a week. I'm thinking that Thursday will be the day and this week it's called Face of the Day or FOTD. What I will do is post a picture of all the products I use on my face (non-skincare) and then all the products I use on my eyes and lips. It's a lot of fun for me because like I said, it's one of my passions and it can be very creative.

So, without further delay, here are my FOTD photos and below that photo, in detail, are the product names I have used.

Foundation: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind in Pure Beige

Concealer: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment in Light

Blusher: Nars Orgasm

Bronzer: Benefit- Dallas

Highlighter: Wet n' Wild Color Icon "Bronzer" in Reserve Your Cabana (this is definitely a bronzer by any means, but it is a lovely highlighter!


Primer: Too Faced Eye Primer (eye primer = must)

Shadows: 1.) Loreal Infallible in Gold Imperial
2.) Wet n' Wild Walking on Eggshells trio

Eyeliners: 1.) Revlon Colorstay in Brown Black on upper lash line
2.) Bed Head Cyberoptics Shadow in Green on lower lash line
3.) Bed Head Big Fat Fun in Black on waterline

Mascara: CoverGirl Lashblast Fusion in Very Black

Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Darling

I would love to hear any sort of feed back, suggestions, ideas for anything makeup related I could do. I also love to review products and if there are any products you see above that you would like my opinion on please don't be shy.

I also have some hair care products I plan on reviewing soon.

If you are interested and are not already a member of my facebook page "Beauty Cupcakes" by all means, friend me and I will be happy to add you. Lots of advice, techniques, nail art, photos, hair, we have a girl for every passion.

Hope you have enjoyed!


  1. I totally think you have a talent for make-up! Especially the eye shadow and eye "looks." I am not sure what it is, but whenever I try to go for something besides just a swipe of something light or shimmery, I look like a clown.

    Where does one purchase the bed head eyeliners? I have seen them mentioned a few times but have never come across them in a store.

    Thanks! Still love your blog after all this time, and I'm glad you're going to be posting more to it.

    1. Hi Karen! I was lucky enough to receive a few Bed Head cosmetic items from my friend Jamie when we did a makeup swap a few months ago. I did some research for you and it does appear you can purchase online at amazon.com but beware: it appears that this particular line "Big Fat Fun Smudgie Eyeliner" has been discontinued. So I would suggest finding another liner. I am always on the hunt for good eyeliner and am sad that I see now it's discontinued because it stays put and does not irritate.

  2. Beautiful! And I want that lip stain!! You should totally do a vlog sometime on how to do your eyes. Love the way you do your shadow! Or even a step by step pic tutorial!

    1. I would love to do a vlog. I'll need to get real creative with my camera though, but it IS a possibility!

      Step by step pic tutorial is a good idea and on my to do list. Thanks for the input, Jax!

    2. I so see you as a youtuber! You should definitely do that. You look beautiful and I must get another revlon lip balm.
