Win a $50 Sephora eGift card from Makeup and Beauty Blog




“Who…” said the owl outside my bedroom window. πŸ™‚ Rise and shine, morning glory. It’s another foggy Hundred-Acre Wood day out here in chilly Northern California, and there’s an owl outside who sounds like he loves it.

I swear, that owl only calls out early on foggy mornings, which tells me he’s got a real flair for the dramatic.

How did you sleep? I’m only just getting up now, so I’m not altogether awake yet.

Did you do anything fun last night? We did end up going to Chipotle for dinner and then to See’s Candy for desert, where I learned a charming little factoid about my favorite chocolatier. Apparently, to gain access to the company’s secret kitchen at its South San Francisco headquarters, one must be employed by the company for 25 years, which makes me wonder…what the heck is going on in that kitchen??

In other completely random news, have you seen this pic of the new Spider-Man? Andrew Garfield (of The Social Network and the Red Riding Trilogy: Part 1) is reprising Tobey’s role in a reboot of the franchise.

I like Andrew, but Tobey did such a great job. Those are some big tights to fill…

And now back to beauty! If you haven’t already guessed, it’s giveaway time.

I also got some dark reddish brown lowlights (I have naturally blond hair) and I absolutely love it!!! My husband on the other hand doesn’t seem like a big fan…but I don’t care!

  99. Michelle says:

    I have been dyeing my hair since I was in 7th grade (a loooong time ago) when I decided it would be a good idea to box dye my hair blond (naturally medium brown…or so I believe so lol) except it turned out to be more orange-y than blond. Since then I have dyed my hair black, brown, red, purple highlights, blond highlights, black highlights…well you name it. Plus on top of that I have had a perm twice. Surprisingly my hair is not dead and I am not bald lol. Right now I am trying to get back my natural color and letting it grow out…but I must say I am getting bored and I might have to give in to my hair coloring addiction pretty soon!

I haven’t colored my hair for a few years now. last time I did anything to it, I had dark purple streaks that I really loved. my hair is naturally has brown mixed into it and people have asked me if I color it.

    My beauty achilles hill is probably eye shadow. I feel I’ve never known how to apply it properly. Now the palettes come with these instructions, so that helps a bit, but I feel I never get it quite right. I am also on a never-ending quest to find the best lengthening mascara (any tips?). I like lashes that are long and thin and defined, like a 60’s actress, not like fat, cakey lashes. I realize that false lashes are probably the way to go, but I find the prospect daunting. Sigh…

    Even though my short & spiky dark brown hair has a lot of grey in it, I don’t color my hair…. yet. I plan to, not because of the grey, but because after 38 years, I’m bored with the dark brown. I actually kind of like the grey and my mom comments all the time on how pretty it looks in the sun. I’m nervous about screwing it up, but determined.

    I’ve used Ardell cellophanes & Manic Panic in shades of red & purple on my hair before though.

  472. Amber says:

    I dye my hair every few months (3-6) with red Henna. My hair loves henna. My natural curls clump better, my hair feels stronger, and I have always wanted red hair and this gives a nice auburn color to my tresses. I am starting to get a few grays at the top so loving covering them at this time. People always comment on my color and since I don’t do anything chemically to my hair I have no issues with this great natural product. I mean, Hay, Cleopatra used the stuff so how can you go wrong? Right? xoxo

    I can never get the perfect cat eye no matter how may times I practice! I think it could be because I have round eyes and one of my eyelids has a very tiny crease and the other has a deep crease.

    • Sarah says:

      Tiana – Have you tried Clinique’s Redness Solutions Daily Relief Cream? I had red cheeks (very sensitive and burned frequently) and finally tried this just to cover the redness (it’s a greenish cream). After rubbing in a tiny dot of cream on each cheek for a week, my cheeks were no longer red and didn’t burn. I don’t think it really helped with the color, but solved the real reason my cheeks were red – irritated and dry cheeks, which I didn’t even know was a problem since the rest of my face is oily. Love it. Use it every morning. And the $40 jar lasts me a year.

  525. Lani says:

    I’d love to win but I’m so unlucky and never win. I recently went to a Xmas party where we were given tickets and there were 10 winners. Of the 10, 4 of the winning numbers were around mine, the guy that came after me and the 3 people that came b4 me. What luck!

  650. Lisha says:

    UD is my kryptonite.
    Fun tip:
    Lightly swirl a blush brush in the first 3 colors of the Naked palette (Virgin, Sin, & Naked) and gently apply in a circular motion to cheeks(or whatever areas you like to highlight) for a nice illuminating powder for light to medium skin tones. Works great on me, and saves me the extra money of buying a highlighting/illuminating powder.
