FOTD: I'm Scratching Zero Underground << That one was hard

Ok, beauties today's look was inspired by allthatglitters21, and it's from the Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow Palette

So here's how to do it...

EYES:
  • I primed using my e.l.f. Eyelid Primer
  • I used a purple cream liner as a base (I used Physician's Formula Shimmer Strip Glam Eyes)
  • Then I packed on Scratch from the Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow Palette all over the lid to the crease (e.l.f.'s Professional Eyeshadow Brush)
  • Then I placed Underground (same palette) into the crease and outer corner (Using the e.l.f. Crease Brush)
  • Then lightly placed some Zero (same palette) ontop of the underground and BLENDY BLENDY BLENDY till it was how I wanted it (Using e.l.f.'s Blending Eye Brush)
  • Then I lined my lashline using Milani's Liquif'Eye in Black then topped with Zero (Using an angled eyeliner brush)
  • Under the lower lashes I smudged Peace (same palette) all the way under the lower lash line (Using the e.l.f. Smudge Brush) 
  • In the very outer corner of the lower lashes I placed a small amount of Ransom (a small brush...)
  • Then I applied Milani Liquif'Eye to the waterline
  • I curled my lashes and applied Rimmel's Glam'Eyes
LIPS:
  • I applied Hard Candy's Painted Lady Lipstick in Knockout

Oily Skin?? Want a FIX?? Try this CHEAP and AMAZING Product!!!

Ok, beauties, so SOME of us are dealing with this dreadful OILY skin problem.... I know I have fought the battle all my life and have spent TONS of money on products that just really don't solve the problem....
Guess that's one way to fix it LOL!
So, what is my new Holy Grail, can't live without, must have, reach for daily, now go to product?

You're eyes are not fooling you!!
Yes, that is a bottle of Dr. Phillips Milk of Magensia. This stomach aid is an amazing product for blocking oil! And I am far from the first blogger, guru, or even person to use this... as a matter of fact, look at how Dr. Phillips used to promoted
Yes, it was printed in the papers like this... (as far as I can tell)
So, for $4.99 a bottle (the larger one) available at pretty much any drugstore, grocery store, or most places you shop on a regular basis... you may be thinking ok but how do I do this?? Well here's how I do this...

DAILY:
  Daily, I use milk of magenisa as a primer. I apply it AFTER my moisturizer BEFORE my foundation. I take a VERY VERY VERY VERY small amount on a cotton ball and dab a dot on each cheek, nose, forehead, and chin, then blend it into my skin.
Now, if you use too much you will get a sorta chalky finish, so play with it a little bit.

3 TIMES A WEEK:
  Now, M.O.M. is also an amazing face mask! So 3 times a week, I apply a thicker layer all over my face, and allow it set for about 15 minutes. Then I rinse with lukewarm water, and then splash cold water on my face. This tighten the pores, helps reduce the reddness, and at least with me helps with any breakouts, and seems to help lighten some scarring that I have!

So, that's my review! Hope you enjoyed Beauties! And remember this is for my OILY SKIN BEAUTIES ONLY!!!!!!
