Sunset Kisses

Hello! I had started this blog post a couple of days ago, as in getting the pictures ready for it, and then I left my laptop for a while when my system decided it was time for a restart for the updates to be in effect. :( I was so frustrated that it did it without my permission I decided the laptop and I needed a break for a while. So, now I'm back on it! lol
I already have a few looks lined up for the blog... so keep posted!!

Ooo and a mini rant today. On Instagram (my username: @geenabarret if you're interested :)), it kind of drives me crazy when I see someone's makeup look that I know, and their name is nowhere to be seen in a tag... or when I see a look, and I know who did it, it's used in some kind of makeup contest...and no tag to be found. So irritating. As a copy editor for the newspaper for my college and plagiarism ALWAYS being a complete NO-NO. I feel like it's plagiarism even if it is a photo sharing app, you know? Okay, just my vent for the day.
Speaking of Instagram, this look was actually inspired by this one picture I saw. Her username is @reenerneener if you wanted to look her up. She's gorgeous and so are her looks!

Cherry Lime

Hey everybody!
How was your spring break??
I went to San Diego with my boyfriend to visit Sea World, the zoo, and the wild animal park. It was an amazing trip. I had so much fun! My favorite part would definitely be the sea lions. They were absolutely hilarious. I'm going to make a post with pictures from the trip and the absolutely hilarious sea lion my boyfriend got on video.
Now, with this look, my boyfriend had some gum in his truck that he always forgets is there and then gets really excited when he finds it. It was Trident Layers Sweet Cherry + Island Lime flavor. So, I made a look based off of it. Coincidentally, the same day, Phlox from EyeGraffiti made a look called Sour Apple Eyes that is similar to mine, just with black. I loooove their looks, so if you haven't checked them out, DO IT! They are fantastic inspiration.
