    Would you mind sharing the secret to your sparkly white teeth?! Thx!!

      I was wondering the same thing! Your teeth sparkle Missy!

      Nothing in particular, really. I don’t use whitening toothpaste because my teeth are overly sensitive; but I do have professional bleach/trays that I use about once every other month.

    I love the warm ombre look! Cant wait to try it.. I’ve been lazy with eyeshadow lately and just throw on neutrals and winged liner.

    Love this look and love the MUFE shadows. Kind of random, but do you use your fingers or something else to apply the cc cream? Thanks

      I have the same question for the CC cream! I have learned so much from you Missy! Not sure what I would do without you! Xo

      You girls are too cute! Thank you! I usually just apply it like I would a regular moisturizer (with my hands) since following up with the mineral foundation makes me less I’m concerned about it being even. But some days I do skip the mineral foundation, if I want more of a “dewy/glowing” look and will apply using my pink beauty blender sponge. Completely submerse the sponge in water and squeeze as much water out as possible. Apply the CC cream directly to the sponge and blot all over your face. You can also apply with your hands and then after you’ve applied concealer and blush, blot to blend altogether. That little pink sponge can be quite fun to play with and it really does work! Long-winded answer to a simple question – sorry! ha!

    Thanks for another great makeup tutorial! I have learned so much from you and so appreciate you sharing your beauty secrets:) Could you please share your nail polish color? I love it with the warm smokey eye!:)

      Hi Carina, it’s Sephora’s Formula X in ‘Atomic’ (a black cherry). It lasts for at least a week without chipping, too!

    You have the best beauty tutorials. I have learned so much from you as far as hair and makeup. I have brown eyes and glasses. I don’t have the option of wearing contacts. Would you consider doing a tutorial for eye makeup that would play up eyes for people who wear glasses without making the eyes look too dark? I would love to get your expertise on the subject!!

      What a great idea! Of course, I’d love to help! I wear faux glasses, occasionally and would be happy to use those as an example of what I do! ha! Thank you for the request!

    I will have to try this on Friday night!

    Have you tried Smashbox – Full Exposure Mascara? I absolutely love it! Its less than $20 and I feel like it does a great job lengthening and separating (just my humble opinion 🙂 )

    Just thought I would mention it since you’re a mascara connoisseur.

      Dude. Consider it my next purchase! Thanks for the recommendation! xo

    So pretty! I love what you did with your eyes. Smokey eyes are so sexy and I’d love to learn how to do that. Will be practicing your YouTube video for several days, I bet.

    Love this look! I was also wondering have you ever ran across a really pretty tinted chapstick? One that wont rub off on your baby cakes cheeks every time you want to give them a smooch! Im sure my daughter doesn’t appreciate red lips on her soft cheeks whenever I give her kisses. :0)

    I just came across this post and love the look!! I am looking for everyday makeup tutorials. Unfortunately, makeup forever doesn’t carry these eye shadow sticks anymore, now they are pots. Do you have a replacement for these or could you do a new updated tutorial? Thanks!! Love the blog as I just found it 🙂

    • Reply missy September 29, 2014 at 11:56 pm

      Thankfully, they’re still sold online! Hurry stock up!!

  • Reply Brooke September 30, 2014 at 1:40 am

    Would you mind sharing the link? I am only able to find the new eyeshadow sticks which have different names for the colors which don’t match the ones you used? Thank you!!! You make it look so easy with the eye shadow sticks btw, I’ve only ever used powder!
