Springtime in Alberta

So, we have been a bit spoiled with good weather here in March, so now Mother Nature is getting us back in April. This picture was taken out of my back door at about 7 pm when I finally got home from work. April snow brings I don't know.

Here is my first makeup look using Maybelline EyeStudio. For this look I used the gel eyeliner in Eggplant, the XXL PRO mascara in Curl and the Colour Plush eyeshadow palatte in Taupe Temptress. I like the look, even though it's a lot more makeup than I usually wear. I really like the brush that comes with the eyeshadow palette because it has one end that works really good to apply smudgy eyeshadow along the lower lash line.

Also, please remember to enter my outfit contest!

oh..I feel for you..I keep wondering if we'll get a spring snow too. Denver got one.

I do like the egg plant color.

shivers at the thought of snow. I think the eye shadow looks very natural.

I don't want to think of snow. Ours finally left a few weeks ago. but we've had some ice in the rain, lately.

Cool instructions about getting the effect. Great job!

Good Goddamn that's a lot of snow for April! Though I conveniently forget my days in upstate NY when similar things happened. Lovin' that color on you.

I hope your boyfriend still knows you from playing with the eye-make up. Once I got in a bit of trouble with mine because he said I looked like a vampire and scared him. We were going to a club after all. I had to look the part.
