Here is a diagram on contouring for most of us:

 As a rule, darker colors push back areas while lighter colors bring them forward.
 Of course this will take serious blending but for a special occasion it would be worth it.

Here are products that I plan to try this week:


 I am a big fan of StriVectin and use it almost daily - this is the newest version.
The No 7 intense Serum has  been clinically shown to improve deep lines & is hypo-allergenic. It's from the Boots Comp in England and is fairly easy to find in the US.  I am excited to try this.
The 32 piece eye shadow set and the Shimmer Gloss set from elf was only $4.99 at TJ Maxx.  This should be a fun set.
Have a great Tues!     If it's pink or sparkly, yes I want it!


  1. Great haul. Have fun playing around with all the great stuff.
    hugs honey


    Thanks for your comments and the invite for Margaritas, which mine would be virgin, which are actually very delish. I have a friend of my husband that always hosts with his fave margaritas and he fixes special virgin ones for me and HM. Ain't that nice? Oh and I am blogging at this insane hour because I had to wake myself up from a yummy nap to take my anti-swelling pills before tomorrow anti-swelling pills. (only day before, day of and day after chemo) Chemo was gruelingly long today. So took a nap as soon as we got home!!

    So glad you love the pink on me. It think it is my favorite color lately. But may be getting a bit sick of it as the chemos stack up. we shall see. hahahaha.

    I am stealing your Fight like a Girl! from your side bar right now. thanks. xx
