• a dupe •

I fell in LOVE with Pretty As A Junebug's BFTE Berry Patch Collection look. So I decided to duuupe it!! I use a LOT of Beauty From The Earth, but the Bring on the Berries collection was just released last week and I haven't been able to purchase it yet...I will be saving up to buy it, for sure!!
Here is the lover-ly Pretty As A Junebug. GORG.
And....here is my dupe! It's not as good as the original (it just isn't!) BUT it was really fun to do! xD This will probably be a look I do again soon!

I used:
Lid: Tequila Lime by Metal Glam Cosmetics
Crease: Anthrax by My Pretty Zombie
Browbone: Raspberry by BFTE
Highlight: Ladies in Waiting by Antoinette's Revolution Cosmetics

. a post of WINNING...literally! .

Hello Everyone!!

I posted about this last month - the lovely Gina, from Makeup Gets Me High, hosted a Peacock inspired makeup contest. I entered the Wearable category, because I didn't feel like I could even compete with some of those entries I saw (Although everyone on the fanpage is super kind and would've made me feel great about my look anyway!)

Here is my entry - THAT WON!

And here is my SWAG!

Here's what I got!
• Peacock handmade zippie pouch from Zippies
• Blush & Lip Whip from Glam R Face/Pink Stiletto Cosmetics
• 2 Eyeshadows from My Pretty Zombie
• Hello Kitty earrings from FrizzyLizy
• Blush & Blush sample from Rag Dolls Bath & Beauty
• 3 Eyeshadows from Metal Glam Cosmetics 
• Bow Ring from Dailee Dose
• Flavored Tinted Lip Balm & Eyeshadow sample from Lucky 107 Cosmetics
• Eyshadow sample from Rockeresque Beauty Company
• 3 Mascaras from The Chainsaw Mascara
• Cupcake soap from Simply Sweet Skin
• Eyeshadow sample from Thirtyonewest
• 2 Eyeshadows from Antoinette's Revolution Cosmetics
• Sweeeet thank you card from Makeup Gets Me High

I am BEYOND thrilled with this whole experience - being the contest winner & receiving all these wonderful prizes! I have only tried out a couple of these companies before, but every single product I received has impressed me and will have my shopping with them in the future (As money allows...of course! If money was no issue, then I'd be buying up ALL their stuff..STAT!!)

Thanks for sharing in my excitement! Don't be jealous ;] - enter a makeup contest! There are TONS on Facebook right now. I wish I could compile a list for you, but I don't have that kind of time at the moment - This girl works 2 jobs, and with a 5 year old...it's surprising I even was able to write up this post!
*If you know of any of these great makeup contests and would like to share them, pretty please link them in the comments!
