Yummy411: Oh no! Look what I've started....


Dear friends,

My little sister, The Voice, is starting in makeup... she just turned 13! I gave her a stash of my old stuff that I didn't want; lipglosses and one or two cream shadows. She wanted more and I didn't want her in my 'collection' so with her earned money she bought this.


She felt that if she got her brows done, she'd look better with her makeup (who told her such a thing?) So for her birthday, I groomed them a bit. Like her lashes, she has thick, curly, burly brows, that I shaped and trimmed a bit which gave her lashes more room to shine!


Usually, I'll come home to this, a simple lid color, but as you can see. she dabbled in some lime/yellow at the corner (oh don't tell her that I'm sneaking her self paparazzi pics for my blog!):
Then I put a touch of blue on the outer corner and some purple liner (Urban Decay's liquid liner in Crash-- eehh I see why it's a 'good bye' item!)

Then! She went to the bathroom again and came out with this! She got into my Ben Nye Azalea and my MAC Aqualine liquid last liner!


Oh yes! She cam whores too! Myspace kids! LOL! And that's my Palatial lipglass LE!!!



Today, it's this.... she's working her little Claire's palette and Milani lipgloss!


Oh well.... maybe we can show her a few things and start a makeup group!


(gorgeous gold, expensive pink, satin taupe and tete- a- tint (sp?), milani eye liner in aqua and fascinating eye kohl)


Oh Sunday, I went to a Bilal concert... his music is pure sex! I won't ever be caught at his concert without a date again. My eyeliner stood up to a couple of tears.. I heart Bilal!!! One of my fave songs by him is on myflashfetish player if you're interested (in the upper right corner). Oddly enough, I was standing with half of the MAC counter staff from Pentagon who came to the concert after work!

Yes! Ledisi came out as a special guest. She is the truth and the light yall! I don't know why I've been sleeping.. (not on her beautiful locs though! LOL)

(sorry I'm not the best concert cell phone photographer =) )


Ahhhh! What a night!

lucky you! i love bilal. the first song i heard from him was that song he has with beyonce called, "everything i do"... love that song! :)

your sis actually did a pretty good job. she just needs to perfect it... but definitely better than me when i first started playing with makeup. hahaha. :)

ilurvemakeup said...

Lol! She'll learn pretty fast having you as a teacher ;)

yummy411 said...

hey christiana! i vowed not to miss him again the next time he came to my home town......... he makes such good love and heartbreak songs.. they really hit your soul!

yeh, i actually think she looks cute in her little makeup LOL.. what does she know about liner and stuff?! ha! i just want her to keep it age appropriate and not go too far with other makeup with her being an adolescent. so many teens think the cure to pimples, etc. is foundation and more junk on top of skin probs... i do not want her going that far!

yummy411 said...

hey lurve! she already told me that antoinette (our older sis) told her to put the "eyeshadow up some" (translation: a bit into/abover her crease)"to open up my eyes more".. this is too much for me LOL!

memphiz said...

You two are so cute...pretty makeup as well! Also I have a question...In the summer time I wear eyeliner but it tends to smudge off or run b/c how hot it is it... what is the best way to prevent that?

Aya said...

Hey sexy mamaz! Lucky you....I looove Bilal! I also love that headband on you...fierce! What's your fave Bilal song?

Lakia said...

Oh Lawd! You saw Bilal and Ledisi without me... (as I wipe away the tears)LOL!

yummy411 said...

@ memphiz: hi chica! thank you!! to prevent unwanted smudging, you should op for waterproof liners. for extra smudge proof protection, go over the liner with a shadow of the same color (or a diff color to be funky!). it will set the liner. use whatever's convenient for you, angle brush, etc. hope that helps!

@ aya: you love bilal too! that's fab! he has an international fan base. thank you!...i need to get more headbands for this growing hair of mine, so i hope you don't get sick of it cuz you'll see a lot more of it! my favorite bilal song (s)?: Sometimes (which is on my music player) and why didn't you call..... since he doesn't have a second record out, i like his myspace song, you're all i need.. what's yours?!

@ lakia: aww i'm going to have to post the shows and events i'm interested in attending to see who out there wants to come... besides the 9:30club is going for 1 hr shows (though bilal went on for a while) which is good for mamas and ledisi was there for about 5 mins .. but long enough to make me a believer! LOL next time!

slvrlips said...

OMG!! I remember when your sister use to ride her big wheel in the hall way of your old house (lol) now make-up (yay) I have to give her a hug when I see her. she is now in the club of beauty. I love it!!!
I soo mad I didn't go to the Bilal concert. His music is very real and sexy. Ok Kia next time he's in town please tell me I'm so going and Ledisi was there Damn I missed out

She is too adorable! A smaller younger version of you! That is too cute!
P.S. I love how you do the different color eyeshadows at once! Instead of the makeup in my bag, i could use a mini yummy in my makeup bag. Fabulous makeup everyday! Let us know if you plan to visit Memphis anytime soon

You must be a super-nice sib; if one of my sisters tried to use my makeup stash, there would be loss of life and limb. Seriously, I'd break their damn legs.

PS: Nice work on the eyebrows!

justme said...

i love bilal too, everything he touches turns to gold!

(g)ezebel said...

look at your sis! so cute!!

Afrodite said...

Your sis is so pretty. She looks a lot like you.

Can you believe I'm not a Bilal fan. Never have been, never will be. I don't know, something about that high-pitched voice...

Jewells said...

Your lil sis is working it out. I'm not mad at her one bit!

I sooo heart Bilal. I can't wait for his next album! I would love to go to one of his concerts...with a date of course!

Toya said...

She's so cute and looks so much like you!

yummy411 said...

@ slvrlips: i know right! it's kinda cute and annoying all at the same time! LOL!

@ vixenlibra: thanks chica! oooh memphis! i think i've been there once.. i guess i need to come back!

@ mandypandy: oh i'm not nice at all! she sneaks into my stuff! off with her head! LOL cracking up at you!

@ justme: his music is hotness!

@ (g): tahnk you! she tries, she tries! hahahaa

@ afrodite: thank you!
i will say this, his music did not particularly match his stage presence. you know how maxwell makes you want to drag him to bed? well... bilal is fun, but makes me feel like "ummm put out a record already!" LOL!

@ jewells: thank you! yes girl only with a date.. be careful, you might eat him!

@ toya: thanks! (again) she tries LOLLOLL!!

Connie said...
