Party on! Debbiedoos B & A Before and After party, will proceed every other Wednesday thereafter .
Please proceed reading  this post with CAUTION.  As we know this party is a broad range of before and afters, so let's get creative with WHATEVER! Have fun enjoying as many participants as you can.  I have the greatest group of friends here.  You really are thoughtful!
I decided for my first B & A, after some requests, I would show you my eye make up tutorial.  was going to do a video, however, I am over that for awhile:) So here we go, the BEFOREwell, kinda blah for sure......but this is what I have been blessed with, so I work with it!
OK this is a serious matter here, nothing to smile about, I have some work ahead of me here, oh and obviously in need of a brow wax...going this week.....................Yabba Dabba Doo's  get to work on Debbiedoo!!!
Ok one eye has some life in
Ok so it took this team to help, what can I say! I pay these Men well!~
Ok seriously,  All I do is take my little shadow brush and apply it generously on half my lid. I like using the darker colors, as my eyes seem to pop out more, I think that would be the case for most of us, however, some are too afraid to try it. I am sure if a make up consultant or cosmetologist is looking at this, she is cringing at my advise.  I also take my brush and lightly go underneath my eye and further out, the cat eye look, I know, all wrong, but that is the way I like it.
After I apply the cat eye underneath, I usually take a lighter color with a shimmer,color depends on what I am wearing, I then lightly brush that color underneath the lid as well....again probably not to make up standards, , but that is what I do.
As you can see this black smokey color has a sparkle to it, I love sparkle anything, I even wear sparkle lotion!
I am almost finished you can see, I trash the bathroom in this process! I really need my lipstick, never leave home without it.  I use the cheap crap wet and wild, I love it, stays on, does not bleed, and they have some great colors. This is what I use for the summer.  Now one thing I hear about women in their forties...we really should not use reds anymore, I would agree with that...

I love pinks, in all variations, this is my favorite one, again super cheap, go to your local drug store and check it out!
I am ready for the day! Total time from shower to make up to hair....40 minutes! Not too bad! When I had short, short hair, it was 30 minutes.  The make up process takes me about 5 minutes!
Lancome eye shadow color design with the new metallic black.  I know it looks dramatic when the lid is closed however it really does not look caked on when your eyes are open, and of course you do not have to cover as much of the lid, you can do a smooth thin line, which I have done that as well.
Blush: Estee Lauder Delux all over face compact you can see the color numbers in the picture above.
COVER GIRL shimmer shadows this one is #600 Sterling Blue...I also use the light pink one often, I am out of it so I do not have the # will be going to get some more today!
Linking up to: THANKS for hosting ladies!
I will have my link up Tuesday evening to start....thanks everyone, and I can't wait to have some more fun!~Hope you  all join in!
This party will be every other Wednesday.

Oh, Debbie.. you are so much fun! I'm having sort of a down morning, but when I read your post I was laughing out loud. I can hear you talking through your writing. That's an art, you know? Love all the makeup tips and you are so daring to do a before and after picture... but then you are YOUNG and really can do without makeup. I did a similar posting a few weeks back but removed it when I thought I was too old to be messing around with all my paints. Oh well...
Have a fabulous day. You sure turned my morning around.

Thank you so much for sharing this Debbie, I love it!!! I'll have to attempt it when I'm not going anywhere in case I end up looking like a racoon!

My friend and I went yard sale-ing on Sat. and we didn't find ONE single yard sale!!! It was very strange, maybe cuz of the holiday. I was so hoping to come home with lots of treasures:(

You know, if I looked like you did without makeup, I'd never wear it! You're a natural beauty -and, no, I'm not just saying it.

You might really love MAC eyeshadow in Sketch. It is my alltime fave and PERFECT for doing a smoky eye that you can get away with day or night :) Actually, I pretty much love anything from MAC.

What a fun way to start off a "B & A" party! You have gorgeous skin! Of course, I think you look just lovely without makeup. But, I totally get the need to be girly and that is one of the fun parts of being a girl...playing with makeup!

I got my post up to join the party! Yippee! I remembered!! LOL

Blogger Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

You have such pretty eyes, Debbie. My eyes are more deep set than your so I put the dark shadow on the crease of my eyelid and apply a lighter shimmer over my lashes and in the corner of my eyes. It opens them up a little more. I heard flase eyelashes make eyes look larger but I never tried them..I'd need a tutorial on how to put them on

Hi Debbie! Oh, look at you being all cute and stuff! I enjoyed seeing how you do your makeup! I may try your trick with the eye shadow!
Now, you're snapping in front of your bathroom mirror and I want to ask you something. I am the Queen of the Daring Darling Bathroom Beauty Snapping Divas and we do this - snap a photo of ourselves in fronts of mirrors! Could I use your snap for a future post on my Bathroom Divas? I would never do this without your permission. But I would love it!

You're a doll! I loved this fun post.
I, on the other hand, have realized I am an idiot! First I linked the wrong post and then I linked up the right post but to the wrong party! I wondered why you'd asked me to add your link...I was thinking it was already there and then realized what I'd done. Well, it's fixed...sort of. Like they say, third time is a charm...I finally got the right post linked to the right party (my bird cage to your B & A). Sorry!

p.s. I watched your video a couple of weeks ago to...cute, fun and entertaining! Best wishes!
