The Lipstick League – Week of 10/9/17 – Mascara, Lipstick or Eye Shadow???

1976 Maybelline mascara

The Lipstick League – week of 10.9.17

Question of the Week: Mascara, lipstick, eye shadow: you have to eliminate one from your routine FOREVER. Which would you chose?

EauMG’s Answer: Why are you guys so cruel?! After thinking about this for too long, I’m going to say mascara. But, hear me out! I have short, stumpy lashes so mascara makes a difference. I just figured I could sub them false lashes or extensions. I just can’t give up the joys of lipstick and eyeshadow.

Question of the Week: What is your HG eyeshadow palette from the drugstore?

EauMG’s Answer: There are actually many drugstore palettes that I like. For neutrals, I think L’Oreal Colour Riche La Palette Nude 1 is good (it’s like Lancôme at a cheap price). I also love Makeup Revolution Ultra Eye Contour Light & Shade Palette. It’s all matte. Another great matte is e.l.f. Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette

Question of the Week: So let’s hear it. Did you make any Black Friday/Cyber Monday beauty purchases? Spill the beans!

EauMG’s Answer: Well, it sure was tempting but I didn’t buy anything. Hard to believe, I know. There were plenty of great deals but I didn’t *need* anything so I didn’t buy anything. I’m trying to save up for a trip in the next few months. I’m amazed by my willpower at this time. What about you?

Little baby Frink the Frug (Frenchie pug)
Frink the Frug

March 6th-13th

So here’s a pic of Frink the Frug when he was a little frugly baby. What a mutant! Only a face that his adopted mother could love! His ears never could decide what to do: bat eared like a Frenchie’s or floppy like a pug’s. Grown-up Frink’s ears are either like the pic above about 40% of the time and the rest of the time down like a pug’s, often reminding me… Continue reading | 3 Comments

More 1950’s Fashion: Get the Makeup Look of Arlene Dahl

1950's style icon Arlene Dahl

I love this classic makeup look of Arlene Dahl’s. It’s just as elegant today as was in the 1950’s. A line of black liquid eyeliner and untouchable red lips are always a winner in my book. I’m calling this one the “cocktail party” look. This classic evening look works for so many complexions. Here’s what I did to get this 1950’s Arlene inspired look:

FACE: Arlene’s complexion is flawless. I’m jealous. With my Elizabeth Arden Foundation Brush, I… Continue reading | 5 Comments
