$50 Make-up Giveaway

What a better way to end this week with a little beauty and glamour and the best way I can show my appreciation for all the support you give my little blog is with a $50 make-up giveaway. I won this giveaway myself recently and it is definitely worth it to end this giveaway! The company is Soap Hope is this is their mission:  
Helping Women Everywhere. We believe that every woman in the world who wants an opportunity to support herself and her family should have that opportunity. That's why we created the GOOD RETURNS business model on which Soap Hope was founded. It's simple: every dollar of profit earned by a Good Returns company goes first to an institution that uses it to solve world problems. After those profits have spent a year in service, the money is returned to Soap Hope. It's like the Peace Corps for money: we volunteer every dollar for a year of service.

You can feel good about wearing their products because you know each dollar is spent to help women around the world and it doesn't hurt either that you look pretty darn beautiful yourself, although I believe in beauty with or without make-up.
When I won the giveaway, I used the opportunity to select colors I normally wouldn't purchase or think would look good on me, I didn't go super crazy, don't worry. I bought a blue shade, I heard opposite colors are good for eyeshadows so with my brown eyes I went blue. I also bought a lovely shade of pink called Love Potion as demonstrated for you here. These eyeshadows along with their make-up line is natural minerals based.
These are the four colors I picked from the giveaway I won:

This is also my normal make-up routine, starting with Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer. Seriously without this, my eyeshadow is all up in my creases by 10am, not a pretty picture. I have tried drug store brands, especially L'Oreal and nothing can compare to Urban Decay. Plus they changed up their packaging lately so when you get down to the last little bit of primer, it is a lot easier to retrieve. Then I put my eyeliner on before my shadow. I like to put the liner on first because the shadow helps cut down on the exact line look. Then my shadow and finally after curling my lashes my mascara.
Here is my eye make-up routine.

I put on the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer

Then I put on my eyeliner in a dark brown shade.


Then I put on the Soap Hope Love Potion eyeshadow, curled my eyelashes and then put on my brownish-black mascara.

The finished look!
