My Little Ol' Make Up Collection

Okies so this is where I keep all my most used bits and pieces - got this from WH Smith a wee while ago and I honestly do not know why I thought it would keep all my stuff in it :S awk well!

First drawer is mascara :D I do love me some mascara as you can tell!! In total I have 17 in here ranging from No 7 to Urban Decay, Benefit and Mac. My most loved would have to be Max Factor Masterpiece Max and Lancome L'Extreme (which are in my make up bag!) majority of these are still to be tried and haven't been opened yet!

Oh yes, at the from bare minerals concealer in summer bisque...rubbish!!

My next love - sparkles :D these are my loves and have been for about nearly four years now! I am rarely without my sparkles hehe. I initially got into the UD ones and although I do love them I find the collection 2000 colour ranges so much better and they have a better brush that allows you to get more on the first time rather than 10 times later!! My fav UD one would have to be the white pyrotechnics, it's nearly finshed and I can't find it anywhere :( and collection 2000 would be POW! which I only got last week but I love - similar to UD spandex (far right hand side bluey one!!) but more of a teal colour!

I also love eyeliners - mainly the UD 24/7 and at the back I have another masterpiece max, 2000 calorie, loreal telescopic and maybelline colossal (which I hate and should really throw out!!)

Ah, my never ending quest to find a good concealer :) for a long time I simply used benefit boi-ing, and I did love it but then...meh I dunno :S started looking elsewhere! as you can see, I have all sorts but at the min I am LOVING Bobbi Brown creamy concealer in Sand with the BB corrector in Light Bisque underneath it...we'll see how long it is before I change lol.

On "I can't be bothered" days I use the BB corrector with MAC moisturecover (in my make up bag) in NW 20.

Bottom drawer is my mishmash of bits lol. At the back we have MSFs and blushes - simply using redhead MSF as highlight and blush these days though - lazy :) at the front left we have smashbox primer, benefit you rebel lite, MAC select spf 15 in NW 20.

Ummm in the middle we have high beam, benetint and posie tint(you can just see their lids) at the right we have strobey as it is affectionately known lol and under it is random eyeshadowss, pigment samples and general crap!!

I really haven't thought this through properly as I have more pics to put on this of my other bits that nail polishes, other blushes, bronzers etc but can't move them down here...GRRRR!!!!
just means I'll have to do another one about it sometime...shucks :) hehe!
Hope you enjoyed, was just something that came to mind earlier as I'm bored!

TAG: getting to know me.....

What made you choose your blog/twitter/youtube username?

I started this the same time as twitter and at the time a teddy was lying beside me on my bed. Its the grey seal from pingu (i also have pingu and pinga :D) but he gets called grey boy...and i suppose i do loves him hehe:)

What's your actual name? Alethea Kassandra Louise... Alethea is my mum's name - she likes it that much she had to call me it and haunt me with it for all of my life people thinking its my actual name :S

Do you have any nicknames? just always get called Kassandra but (sometimes!) get Kamundra and Baby K lol

What do you do?
Living up the student life style...nearing the end of my 3rd year on my way to becoming a business studies and maths teacher :) I love it some days lol

Tell us something that we don't already know about you!
I lose everything! I literally have something in my hand one minute and the next second it can be gone :S and then I'll find it somewhere random later :S really winds me up at times as I do think I'm losing my marbles :(

What achievement are you most proud of?
Trusting my instinct that when I went back to school to do my AS levels that it wasn't right - I was doing technology, history and spanish. It was going to lead me nowhere so I stuck it out for the year and then decided to do something completey random for education and decided to go to tech to do my AVCE in business. If i hadn't made that decision those 5 years ago (wow feeling old lol!) I wouldn't be where I am today and the person I am today :)

Also when I got into Stranmillis (my uni) I was the first person from my tech campus and the other 3 in their wee group that had ever got accepted to a teacher training college and thus I was in the prospectus for tech for 2 years until they changed their name and got new ones... **FAMOUS** :) i wish!

What do you most like about yourself?
I never lower myself to other people's levels when fighting, if they start being nasty I tend to walk away cus I HATE saying nasty things to people. Also think that I see the good in people all the time, regardless of what they may have done to me.

What would you change about yourself if you could?
I cry alot and easily these days...don't like it cus it makes me feel weak - I want to be the old stronger me.
Wish I could get rid of my final bit of pudge and feel that I look well.
Ummmm that I could also be more confident in certain situations!

I'm doing this as it's an interesting one and I've done all my work that I needed too today :) and it has cheered me up a bit after being a bit pissed off!

Have a wee haul to show (if i figure out how to post pics!!)

Speak soon,
