Fantasy Makeup Pt. 1 + an update

Hey guys!
So the other day at school we had a "Fantasy Makeup" day. We had to bring in a "model" (I asked my friend Kandace. She was PERFECT!) and do their makeup as something other than a normal day to day look. Some of the girls did a girl version of the band "Kiss", one did an "Ice Princess", one did a "mermaid", and I chose to do Effie Trinket from the Hunger Games!

We had a professional photographer come in, so I'll have better pictures soon (ones where you can actually see that Kandace's eyes are blue, like effie's). But I couldn't wait to share this any longer! What do you think?? Do you like it? (In case you're wondering, her outfit came completely from my closet.) I can't wait to get a copy of the professional pics! I'll be sure to share them. :)

Here are some other little things that have been going on...

1. Did you know that there are "Birthday Cake Oreos"?! I found them the other day and was in Heaven! I shared that pic on instagram (obviously!) and I think I may have started an Instagram trend. haha!
2. I've been loving the weather here! I posted this pic and Janette commented saying how that is not warm and that I better not be wearing shorts...
3. In response to Janette's comment I shared this picture... I was in fact, wearing shorts. hahaha! I WAS wearing tights, so it probably doesn't count. But it was still funny. :)
4. We spent our entire afternoon at school on Tuesday trying to figure out the "marbling" technique for nails. Finally got it down after much trial and error.

I hope you're all having a great week! I announced the Valentines Giveaway Winners HERE. Be sure to email me if you're a winner!

Um...I LOVE that you chose Effie! It really looks lovely and striking all at the same time. I can't wait to see the professional photos! Great job :)

Wow, your friend looks amazing. You did a seriously amazing job. What did your teacher say? Can't wait to see the other pictures... I might consider to dress up as Effie next year's German carnival. What a shame it's over for now.

Also, I have to agree with Pia! Oreo Birthday Cake Cookies. Let's do another candy swap. ;-)

Lots of love,
Nadine
