Makeup and Beauty Blog Saturday Night

Published in: Just For Fun

Heya, ladies!


I’d planned to write a couple more posts this afternoon, but I started playing with Photoshop and lost all track of time.

After Photoshopping I got the unrelenting urge to clean off my desk. The piles of paper have been holding me hostage! And that took a few hours, but I’m *finally* done. I’ve re-aligned my desk feng shui, yea! We’ll see how long that lasts…

I found a few goodies under the mess, like the sea biscuit I picked up in Key West and this bunny finger puppet (up top). He’s been gone a while… It was like finding buried treasure, I tell ya.

Tonight, I’m just chilling out at home. On the agenda: practice applying false lashes! I have a few pairs from Lash Addiction ($6 each) that I’ve been dying to try.

As for background music, I’m in trouble. I’m secretly trying to drive El Hub and Tabs crazy by playing Britney Spears’ Trouble over and over and over again until someone snaps, LOL!

What are you up to tonight? ๐Ÿ™‚

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Oh thank goodness!!! I am headed out of town on the 18th and I was trying to figure out how to get my hands on this collection on the 26th…now I dont have to!!!

  2. Karen says:

    Hi Meaghan,

    ๐Ÿ™‚ YAY! What are you going to pick up? I’m already drooling at the thought of the eyeshadows.

  3. Marisol says:

    I get distracted easily too especially when I know I need to do something that I have no desire to do. For example, I am supposed to be cleaning up my guest room seeing what is sent to the Goodwill, trash or taken with me and instead I am browsing through my Google Reader and Youtube.

    Tomorrow I will be packing the remainder of my things and Monday I will be saying good bye to the Valley.

    Have a great Sunday!

    Had my last school concert tonight. It was amazing. Never better.

    AND… I got a letter from Guildhall School of Music and Dramatic Arts!!! I got a place in their summer school program for Shakespeare and Contemporary Drama!!!!
    Damn I’m so happy! (excuse the exclamation mark abuse but dammit I’m happy)

    Karen Bร‚ยดs last blog post..Feel the love!!!! wheeee!

    This is too strange, I got a few pairs of Shu Uemura eyelashes a few days ago and I’ve been trying to practise putting them on. I’m hopeless. I thought you might have some ideas but it seems like you’re practising too. Anyway, is it just me or does Trouble sound a lot like it’s been written by Madonna?

  6. yadiq says:

    Hi k
    I was doing the same cleaning and organizing all day I also found a lot of treasures like all my old sketch books, a $50 macys gift card (LOL I am reserving this for mac chill now) the list goes on :). I have an idea – your photo shopped piece above would make fabulous wrapping paper you should find a local print shop that can print it for you !!!! How cute would that be! I love your bunny puppet I actually found some gumby toys in my bookcase remember those guys LOL happy Sunday!

  7. Allie says:

    I was playing with false lashes last night too! It ended in an unfortunate situation involving my real lashes and some rebellious Duo lash glue. It’s weird–I have absolutely no problem putting false lashes on anyone else, but I struggle doing my own. Until I perfect the art, my Shu curler and Diorshow Iconic do just fine ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great weekend, Karen!

  8. Allie says:

    Just kidding, thought it was Saturday. Let me revise: have a great Sunday!

  9. katee says:

    Wow that is cool how you did those swirls in photo shop. I can’t believe I don’t have it yet.

    huzzah! I’ll be able to get Chill products for finishing my final exams. Which I now must study for…

  11. mukho says:

    Hiya Karen!
    Nice bunny ๐Ÿ™‚
    I found some buried treasure too today. U see, we get frequent powercuts, so I had bought a nice big red LED flashlight, and it went awol! Found it today sitting pretty inside a suitcase stashed in the loft!!

    p.s. Has Tabs snapped yet?

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    How exciting! I hope the rest of the moving goes smoothly. Bring an umbrella when you come back to the bay — it’s raining!

  13. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    YAY! What wonderful news! ๐Ÿ™‚ How far is the school from your home? Will you have to spend the summer there?

    BTW, my favorite Shakespeare play is A Midsummer Night’s Dream!

  14. Karen says:

    Hi Sylvie,

    Good ear! The intro sounds very similar to Madonna’s Get Together.

  15. Karen says:

    Hi Yadiq,

    I remember Gumby! I used to have a few of those toys when I was a kid!

    I love finding gift cards… it’s really like finding pirates booty. I found one for Nordie’s yesterday on my desk, too. It’s either going towards both MAC Chill and some boots! ๐Ÿ™‚

    What are you up to today? It’s raining here so I’m still contemplating if I’m going to brave the weather.

  16. Karen says:

    Hi Allie,

    That’s so funny — I’m the opposite if you. I get asked by friends to apply makeup on them from time to time and I just can’t do it! The hardest thing is eyeliner… I’m so afraid of poking somebody’s eye out!

    You have a great Sunday, too! Got anything exciting on your plate?

  17. Karen says:

    Hi Katee,

    Thanks! It’s a fun program.

  18. Karen says:

    Hi Tekoa,

    SWEEEET! There’s nothing like a little (or big) MAC reward to get ya through studying.

  19. Karen says:

    Hi Mukho,

    Thanks! The bunny’s been MIA for so long… I don’t even remember his name!

    LOL, isn’t finding random stuff fun?

    Oh yah, I think Tabs is a Britney fan and just doesn’t know it yet! ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. yadiq says:

    It’s freezing out here today it’s just past 1 and I need to really get Xmas shopping done ( I haven’t done much so far) I have been loafing around all day eating cinnamon toast in bed ๐Ÿ™‚ watching the food network (my fave!) god I am in such a lazy mood MUST. GET. UP. I hope you are more productive than me ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Dao says:

    Hi Karen,

    The finger puppet is so cute! My eyes have been so sensitive lately, I cry when I put eyeliner on T_T And yes, I’m planning to learn how to apply falsies correctly as well. I just got a free pair of Sephora lashes ๐Ÿ™‚ For background music, I’m slowly driving myself emo by replaying Kanye’s “Love Lockdown” over and over in my headphone. I need to buy his new CD because I really like almost all the songs after listening online.

  22. Allie says:

    Eyeliner is tough, especially when your client/friend doesn’t usually wear much makeup. I find mascara to be the hardest though–people are terrified of that little wand.

    The guy I’m dating (no status as of yet, so I have to phrase it like this) is coming to visit me today. We live a couple hours apart, and haven’t seen each other in a month, so I’m excited.

    Enjoy the rest of your day ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Stephie says:

    Hi Karen

    That photoshopped picture of you is amazing. No wonder you got so distracted. After reading this post I felt as though I should be cleaning up around my desk [my bed] and my bookshelf [the floor] as well, since finals have been kicking me in the butt and I haven’t had much time on my hands. I love fingerpuppets too. When Starbucks used to sell them, I’d always get one with my Tall Caramel Machiatto with extra caramel ๐Ÿ˜› Hope your lash experiments go well.

  24. Karen says:

    Hi Yadiq,

    I did a little bit today but not as much as I wanted to (arrgghh).

    When it’s gloomy and cold out all I want to do is just stay in bed and watch TV!

    Oh, I just love those shows about cakes on Food Network!

  25. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    I’ve only heard half of one of his new songs… I’ll look for Love Lockdown and join you in your emo-ness!

  26. Karen says:

    Hi Allie,

    Yeah, I tried to apply mascara once on a person and it was a hot mess! I gotta give you artists props for your steady hands.

    I hope your date went well today and that you had fun!

    I ended up loafing around the house and going to the grocery store. Nothing too exciting.

  27. Karen says:

    Hi Stephie,

    Aww, thanks!

    When my schedule gets busy my work space goes to sh*t, so you’re not alone! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m going to try hard to not let stuff pile up… it’s tough, though!

    How many finals do you have left? Are you almost done?

    BTW, you just made me crave a tall Caramel Machiato… YUM!
