Andromeda

I hate you, I love you. I hate that I love you, your facial animations make me want to barf some…..OK, so this is supposed to be a post for a Techy Thursday(I’m bringing it back) but then it isn’t, because I wanted to do a makeup tutorial of some makeup that really NO one would wear today because yeah it is from a video game. And a little rant about Mass Effect Andromeda. Which if you have anyone that plays video games you may have heard some rants. Mostly about animations being a bit first gen  and glitches all over the place. In my case I had an NPC(non player character) walk though a wall and disappear thus causing me to restart. UGH. SO, what is today’s post about? Well, I wanted to share the makeup from that game, One of the looks actually. When my hubby started his game we both went BLEH! WHAT? WHat is that? EWWW. Who would…why? Not to say that people wouldn’t like that particular eye look. We are maybe just being picky.


Looks like her head is trying to fall off..

Seriously BIOWARE, the makeup options future or not were subpar.There is not a whole lot of hair options as far as style and as far as faces. I really love Bioware games, a lot of women do. Really, just look at all of us who LOVE the Cullen Dating and Dorian epic bff simulator, I mean Dragon Age Inquisition. I get it is the future. I get it. Just like how everyone in the 60’s thought we would be in flying cars and dress a certain way and really here we are dressing like it is a more updated 1969. I am not saying the game as a whole sucks, no far from it. Damn it is fun, so much fun! But, the small things that can turn into big things. Annoying things just take the wind out of the sails. Sails for a AAA game that had so much hype and yet fell flat. Really, I am scared Dragon Age will have the same fate. Which Inquisition is so beautiful.  Don’t rush games, we can wait. Impatiently, but we will wait. We will still spend our money when the finished product comes out. The potential was there. It was there. How will it bounce back? I still am going to play the heck out of Mass Effect because it is fun. I might just grumble a bit over the little things…

Mass Effect Andromeda
We both like purple, BFFs?

OK, So enough of that, lets look at this here makeup.

Straight from your Pathfinder Nexus Salon…..

milani foundation and NYX concealer

not really….

You can pick colors! And transparency.

lets see you can pick blue

This is one of the looks! I am not even kidding!

Or purple….

 

 

Isn’t we wont even get into the neon blush and spotted shadow. For that I think a cream would be needed.  You can also pick mermaid colored hair, however hair options are also very limited. Which was also a complaint of Dragon Age, which leads people to Modding. With modding you can get better customization. Right now I haven’t heard of much Modding for Mass Effect, I know there is for DAI, for PC.

I got help a bit.

So really, there isn’t much to this “look”

If you cosplay it would be easy to recreate as there isn’t much thought to it. I used The Milani foundation 2 in 1 concealer foundation and Nyx concealer. Although with this you really don’t need the concealer for under eyes..because um you are a purple raccoon. You basically just apply in a small square from eyebrow to right above the orbital bone(cheekbone) I then added a bit of a darker blue and black to the crease and corner of my eyes, followed up with black eyeliner. it is such a silly thing.

I woke up from Hypersleep like this.

HAHAHAHA I hope you had as much fun laughing at this as I did, doing this “look” are there any other video game makeup you want me to do? This was fun!

Leopard coat and OTK boots

Hi there friends it is another, brain fart not sure what to call this post. Post thing. I am sitting here at whatever PM it is trying to stay awake long enough to write some thing down. Being an adult is hard isn’t it? Being a parent is hard. Remember when we were all young and could stay up all night no problem and now it is like 9pm and we are all here debating one more episode of Iron Chef or bed time. The bed always wins. Cozy comfy bed with blankets….zzzzzzzzzzz.
All that aside I wanted to share my outfit for today.
yoins leopard jacket, yoins over the knee boots, hm shirt, hollister jeans, mirina collections necklace, coach bag

Today’s outfit was about being chic and being able to go on errands. The usual Doctor appointments, causing mayhem at Target(oh no), Best Buy(mama wanted her Hobbit movie on Bluray), and a trip to Sephora.  I love the look of a leopard coat and a diamond white shirt. Pair it with a great pair of OTK boots like these I got from Yoins and a great statement necklace like this one from Mirina collections. It looks polished and you feel empowered. I like using a doctor’s bag or over sized bag that can double as a diaper bag. Looking mama chic here especially with my new Mac Retro lippy in fashion legacy!

I love the look of a nice cotton button down blouse with a big chunk necklace. It’s so unexpected but for sure makes one heck of a statement.

The jacket is lightly lined which is great here! And has no collar but I like it that way. I would say go up a size on the jacket. The boots are true to size. I got a 7 1/2 US and it fits like a glove. I love how they are lined and the boots are super comfy. And I think comfort is key with boots as is any shoe. These are a must if you want an OTK. The heel is chunky too.2016-01-21_12.22.12

 

It was a gorgeous day out. Nice for a picnic or running after a little one who was after a ball. A nice day out!  How is your Thursday?

Winter blues OOTD

Hi there friends Happy Thursday! And apparently chocolate day? So grab a candy bar and have a seat with me for a while.  Today is one of those gloomy days where you want to just want to sit and watch movies on the couch all day. Harry Potter marathon or LOTR marathon anyone? Well, I wish I could but I got too much to do today. So in between errands and chasing my son I have Shadows of Mordor on my Xbox waiting on my hands to pick up the controller and play.

Today for my outfit of the day or OOTD, I decided to go with color. And since the weather is so sporatic, I had to take pictures where I could. Without getting me or a little one soaked.

Express shirt and jeans

I like having flared jeans that are a bit longer than normal, call me weird. I like these jeans from Express! They are super comfortable and I love the flare.  The color is great too, I just love dark denim.

Express shirt and Express flaresI also am wearing a bright royal blue blouse today! You need some brightness on days like this! Gloomy and bright, got to counter act the one with the other. And I love this light weight blouse from Express as well. The color is amazing! And the great thing too is you can really dress this up or down. Flares too, you don’t have to have that boho vibe to wear flares.

I didn’t even really bother with my hair today, IT is messy hair day. Why go through all the hassle on a rainy day? Now, I am off to go get some CHOCOLATE!

 

 

Fabulous empty bottles.

Hi there friends! I have been on a weirdo blogging kick and actually have things scheduled! What? What nonsense is this? I have no idea. That is OK! And since I have a bit of empty items in my makeup arsenal I figured I would go over them with you! Since I ran out of my Chanel foundation(SAD FACE) I figured it would be great to show my empties. And what I will or WILL NOT be repurchasing.

So, let’s get started shall we?

Empty review

I love most of these products!

The E.L.F hd powder is fantastic!!! I love that it isn’t heavy and works really well. Will repurchase! You can read a review on it here. Will repurchase

Loreal Sleek it Sprays OH MY god I am really missing my sleek it straight spray! It works and I like these two products best from the line. You can read a full review here Will repurchase

Healthy Sexy Hair I really like this Argan and soy hair. It is a bit pricey at $25 but I did like it a lot. I am scraping the bottle, Will I repurchase? Maybe

Chanel Perfection Lumier. This is one of the best foundations I have used so far. Really. It is expensive but I like that my face doesn’t spaz out with it on. I am super sensitive and this makeup is perfect. Will repurchase. For sure! I also have the Chanel pressed powder and while I love it, I feel that Lancôme duel finish powder fragrance free stays on better in this FL heat. I love the feel of the Chanel powder(not pictured as it was gotten ahold of by a tiny human) but as for stay ability mmm not for here.

Chanel Ultra wear liquid lip in Strawberry red, will repurchase this for certain I LOVE IT! I am almost out! It goes on smooth and you do not necessarily need the gloss over it. Matte lips baby!

Butt Paste, ok this is for a tiny person obviously.  But, as far as Diaper Rash creams this is by far the best I have used. I love that it is thick and doesn’t smell like Noxema. Which some others do. We are potty training but I may still get some as it also does help his eczema .

Too Faced Better than sex mascara This sample I got in a sample kit from Sephora and love it. Move over Lancôme Hypnose! (I am kidding I still love you) I love how this makes my lashes feel. And more importantly look! Will buy again.

Sonia Kashuck Concealer This stuff is worth getting. It covers EVERYTHING! No cracking either and covers blemishes and under the eye perfectly. I need to get it again. But, it is always sold out at Target! Will repurchase.

Philosophy Take a deep dreath. Really great if you have oily skin. This day cream has an spf 30 and smells great! True to Philosophy form. But, alas I need something a bit more rich.

Smashbox BB cream foundation and photo finish. I need these. For a tinted moisturizer it has great coverage for days where you just want to wear a compact. I use it to even out my skin before powder. And the photofinish is amazing . Will purchase full sizes.

Chanel liquid eyeliner It is a felt tipped liquid liner pen. I love that it stays on and doesn’t leave that watery feel. Dries quick. A must. I got it in dark brown.

Milani Eyeshadow base. This is a great base. It is not really tinted. But makes eyeshadow stay put. Lasts in high humidity! Repurchased already.

Lavanilla body butter. This was in an ipsy and I love it. My hads love it too. Doesn’t leave that greasy feeling! And smells absolutely amazing! will purchase full size.

CC hair cream. This stuff is perfection in a tube. I use it on damp hair and as a finisher. Works well. But can get heavy. Will buy full size. But, I keep getting samples. Hahaha

These are my empties. What do you think? Sorry for the quick reviews. If I really went into detail we would be here all day and night!

Have a great weekend!
