A Dazzling Holiday Look Courtesy of Sephora...

Here are the holidays ladies and gents!  You know, it seems the older I get, the quicker they come!  When I was a kid, it seemed like it would take a lifetime before Christmas or my birthday would roll around.  Now, when I wish it would take forever, it doesn't!  I mean, where did this year go?  Does anyone else feel that way...or is it just me!?  Well, can't stop it now, so I will just get to the point of this post!  :)

I have told you all about my loss of inspiration and I am sure you are all tired to death of hearing about it.  Well, I have been sitting down every night and playing with color, of all things!  LOL!  I have even changed up my neutral day time looks to be a little more fun and exciting!  Yes, you can make browns look amazingly interesting with a little extra effort!  LOL!

Since this tragic time fell upon me, I have scoured the net daily searching and saving pics that I love and that seem, at the time, to inspire me.  Bad thing about it, I am always somewhere that I can't just break out the brushes and get to work!  Anyway...I went to Sephora online today since I got a Beauty Insider coupon and started looking around their site at products and pics.  I ended up in their "Get the Look" section and the holiday looks they have are simply amazing!  I know these were all in the Holiday 09 book, but mine never showed up, so this will just have to do!

Our of all those looks, this one has to have been my fav!  I LOVE the glitter and glimmer, especially on the lips!  I don't know what it is about glittery looks, but I just love them!  I especially love this one because it is a combination of pinks and purples.  I think this has to be one of the most inspiring photos I have seen in a while along the lines of holiday looks!  I am going home tonight and trying it on for size!  I will film and hopefully, all turns out well and you will see it on my YouTube channel!

I did get a look filmed this weekend between my cleaning frenzy trying to get the smoke smell out of the house from the small kitchen fire I frig set last week!  Sorry, guys, but that was top priority!  I know I have been severely MIA and I am GOING to make it all up to you soon!  If I could get back in the grove of doing new and different looks everyday, I could at least post pics here...but, yeah, we all see how quickly THAT is going to happen!  LOL!

Well, hopefully, these pics inspire you guys to do somehting great!  If you do a look like this, email it to and I will do a post of followers looks!!!  That can always turn into another giveaway, you never know!  :)  Loves ya!
