Day 25:All the Things I'm Thankful For+Charity Post

I'm thankful for a lot of things in my life; my family, friends, significant other are all so very important to me and I am so glad to have them in my life. I'm thankful for doing so well in school and I'm thankful for the opportunity to be able to do something I love every day.

Sometimes it's easy to kind of forget how good you have it until you realize how badly others have it. This got me thinking about Funny Face Beauty and her latest Dare to Wear Challenge which is a fundraiser for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, a charity that seeks to use grassroots programs to help fight HIV/AIDS in Africa.

The challenge involved recreating or taking inspiration from several pictures she posted and so I took my inspiration from this Shu Uemura advertisement.

I'm pretty incapable of taking full face pictures of myself without the aid of a mirror; it took me about 20 tries to get this photo. As you can see, I'm no model :P

Here are some close ups of the eye makeup

I looooove Darling eyeshadow, it looks absolutely fab on its own. I will say though that I find it sticks best over an eyeliner versus by itself or over Pixie Epoxy.

Rock and Republic Blush in Bedroom

NYX Teal eyeliner as a base for Darling

NYX Round Lipgloss in Natural (which is so so pretty but damn it smells like lemon dish soap!


  1. You are so beautiful! I am jealous of your full lips! Love the look! Great placement of the yellow!

    And I think we all have so much to be thankful for, we just sometimes overlook things when we get caught up in our lives! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. We're thankful for some of the same things :)
    I like your Dare to Wear look! Hahah, I'm not too good at taking face shots of myself (that I'm satisfied with) either.

  3. Wow this eye is really gorgeous. I love it. I don't have any yellow eyeshadow but have always wanted to get some and I love this one on you.
    Thanks again for doing this. I really appreciate it.
