Happy 100th Post!

When I signed up for Blogger more than a year ago and created Beauty by Lindsay, I was looking for a way to force myself into the world with my writing. An outlet for all the extra stuff that was slamming around inside my cranium! An extension of the me I knew was still trying to find her way!

What I have found is so much more. I never could have imagined I would be where I am now...a part of an ever-growing beauty-blogging community, engaging in conversations with beauty-junkies from everywhere! And I have found a confidence in myself I never knew existed...do you know how long it took me to actually TELL people I wrote a blog!?!? Hahaha!

And I have found a renewed passion for my career as a hair stylist/makeup artist! This has been such an awesome year! I have had such encouragement from people in all arenas, I am just so grateful! And with my youtube channel in addition to the blog, I am really so inspired and excited about what I'm doing! I think I have become a much better …

Too-Much Tuesday

Image
Haha this wasn't actually from today, but I wanted to show you an eye look I tried the other day. Maybe I will start doing a weekly theme!

I was using a cream shadow base, then some MUCH stronger colors in a way higher quantity than I normally use! (Bright sparkly blue from NYX and black black Carbon from MAC!)

Lets just say this is not a look I will be wearing to run errands in, though I think it certainly looks hot!

I guess it's never too much if you've got the right sort of event to attend, right?! Buuuut, for this chicky, it is a bit ott (over the top!)

Cheers to playing with major smoky eyes with ultra-glam poses hahaha!

Fab and Fast: 5 Minute Updo

Image
The main ingredients for a super-fast updo? Teasing brush, hairspray, bobby pins and SPIN PINS! These little beauties were so inexpensive but I have used them so much! I got mine at Walmart, but you can find them anywhere!

For step-by-steps, watch this!

Wishing this app allowed me more control, like I have over my hair!

Easy Green, Smoky Eye!

Image
This was the easiest, colorful (well, it's not super colorful, it is a dark green!) smoky eye! I used MAC shadows for this look.

After priming my lids, I applied Bottle Green all over my lid just up to my natural crease line. Next, I smudged Carbon just around the edges of the green, including at the lash line, and extending the outer corners slightly. I added dimension by sweeping Cork above the smoky crease, and highlighted my brow bone and inner corner with Shroom. I patted a little more of the green over the center of the lid to define the colored part more.

Black liquid liner and several (like, eleven!) coats of blackest-black mascara finished this awesomely smoky-but-not-too-smoky eye! Perfect for a little added snazziness for the holiday season, or just a night out on the town! Or running errands with your four-year-old, just sayin'!

This is an easy way to incorporate some color without feeling like Rainbow Brite (yay to mental flashback to my youth!) Any color will do…
