Smokey Eyes Series: Browns

I decided to start a Smokey eye series, and today I did my 1st look using browns :) Basically what I'm going to be doing is creating smokey eye looks using different colors...not just black. Smokey eyes are my favorite looks to create, specially with nude lips...ah I love it. I filmed a video super fast because I can't edit my videos without losing the HD quality so I wanted to keep it short and simple so I didnt have to edit... :/ but soon I will take care of all that and have better videos. Let me know what you ladies think.Here's a list of the products I used. Face: Stila tinted moisturizer, Sephora Mineral compact foundation in Tan, Cheeks: Stila sun bronzer, Milani baked blush in Berry Amore. Eyes: Too Faced shadow insurance, HIP cream shadow pain in Steely, Sally Girl e/s in Chocolate, NYX e/s in Hawaiian Coffee, MAC Blacktrack fluidline, Ulta Amped Lashes mascara, Bonne Bell eyeliner in Basic black. Lips: Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch. Thats it :)Well I hope you all enjoy this, have a wonderful day
xoxo Karen,

Necklace Holder: DIY

Hello ladies, so I know I haven't blogged in just like forever! but my computer is still acting up and it irritates me :/ but I am whiling to go thru the struggle just to have some new posts :) so this week I purchased a few more necklaces and realized I have nowhere to put them and thats one of the reasons why they brake and I just never have enough necklaces...I saw this painting my husband had and decided to turn it into a necklace holder. I went to the dollar store and bought small hooks and just twisted them into the edge of the frame which is wood and it was so easy. Our bedroom is blue so it goes so well with everything here. My next project will be an earring holder and I saw a few ideas online :) I will also post pictures of that so you can see how it looks.
Now changing the subject a little here, I want to show you these 3 bracelets I made for my mom.
for a few months I've been making bracelets and I enjoy it so much. I didn't know how creative I could be. I will take pictures of other bracelets I've made, they are all unique.
This one is my favorite!!!!
this one is very simple but cute.
I know my mom is going to love them. I wish I could give them to her in person but I am far :(. Anyway I hope you all enjoy this post and I will be blogging like crazy today :) have an awesome day.
xoxo Karen,
