Oh la la lashes!

I finally remembered to grab some eyelash glue when I was in town the other day (I've been trying to remember this for 3 months now!)  I got Revlon's precision lash adhesive, and so far I'm pretty happy with it!  I've been dying to wear the lashes that I won in the lovely NICOLETTA'S  give-away!  So yesterday after days and days of yearning I finally got to wear them!  The glue made it easy to apply.  Easier than I remember it ever being!  The great thing about the glue was that it didn't make my eyes burn!  Usually the glue irritates them, and they burn for a bit until the glue is fully able to dry.  This is not the case with this product!  I will be buying it again when I run out!

Now as we all know men aren't the most observant creatures, but yesterday while I was up in the Doghouse (Doghouse is kind of the office building on a rig, where the Driller sits and watches things all day long. It's also where I go when I go up to visit because it is heated, and there is always coffee there!)  Anyways, I was sitting there having a conversation about firearms with the boys,  (Not that I was contributing at all, because I don't know the first thing about guns)  But I was looking at the pictures they were showing me and pretended like I actually cared what they had to say.  All of a sudden the one guy says, "You put high heels on your eyes or something."  I don't think I've ever been so confused in my entire life!  Needless to say, he actually noticed that my eyelashes looked different, and he was really trying to tell me that they were longer and that he noticed and wanted to know what I did!  The funniest thing is, he's the biggest hillbilly out here... Some days I just don't understand men!! 

The girls at camp (the cooks) noticed right away.  Because women always notice such things!  Now everyone wants me to put lashes on them... fortunately I don't have any extras, so I don't see it happening. 

For my eyeshadow I used Mac Pigments in Copper Sparkle.  I wish the copper color was a little more on the copper side!  In the container it looks this gorgeous color, but once applied I find its way to light.  It needs more pigment!  Oh well!  In the creases I used MAC in Brun just to add a little something something.  Overall I'm happy with it.  It was simple and didn't go too over the top!  I lined with NYX Felt tipped liner, and used Revlon in a Nude on my lips.

 All in all I think my eyelashes and eyelids looked fabulous!  I felt amazing all day!  I love when one simple look can just make you feel that good!  I know I have a package of lashes kicking around here somewhere, and today I'm on the mad hunt for them! 

I hope you all have a lovely day, and seeing as how the weekend is coming up, I hope you all have a great one!  Play safe!
