NEED SOME TIPS!! Really want to get back into this

Hey everyone!
I really want to get back intp blogging. I took a break because honestly I became board and couldn't keep up (finacially) with all the new makeup I wanted, so I stopped in hopes of saving some money and tried to learn how to deal with the makeup I did have.

I now work at Paul Mitchell the School, and I see the students everyday so excited and passionate about what they do and I remember that I was once like that when I first got into makeup and I have slowely started to feel excited again through the students and have been putting more work into my looks then I previously have.

I want to blog again and get this started up but I feel like I forgot how to. My camera is not that great and the lightening in my house is terrable. Would any bloggers care to help me out on how I can take better pictures and maybe update me a bit on whats been going on in the blogging world?

I would really appreciate!!
Thank you so much!

I am also becoming a falsie lover....I think I want to wear them all the time now lol

Primer: Benefit Poreless
Foundation: NYX HD
Concealer: Maybelle Dream Lumi (review and how I apply this is coming soon!)
Concealer is set with Eve Pearl HD Powder
Lips: MAC Gaga 2


Lid: INGLOT 371 matte
Crease: INGLOT 348 matte
Outer V: INGLOT 383 matte
Highlight: MAC Rice paper
Inner corner: MAC Goldmine
Liner: Rimmel gel liner
Lashes: Ardell 202

My Halloween Costume as Harley Quinn

I went to two Halloween parties this weekend. My boyfriend and I went as the joker and Harley Quinn (the jokers girlfriend).

This is what she looks like in the Batman show and comic book, she is such a bad ass:

This is my take:

For my face I used white cream makeup from the Halloween kits. This stuff takes a while to get really white, I used three layers of the white cream and waited for each layer to dry a bit before putting the next layer on. Once the last layer was put on, I had to let it dry a bit and then moved it around with fingers to make it look smooth on skin. 

For the blush I used NYX red and applied it with a stipple brush

The lips are MAC Heartless with a F21 burgundy lip liner

You can't really see my eyes, but I just did a smokey eye look and applied some false eyelashes

The full costume:

I purchased the costume  at Halloweencostumes.com. The link will bring you right to the costume. The costume only came with the dress and hat. I purchased the stockings, red tulle and the accessories separately. Since Harley Quinn is a crazy psycho bad ass, I had on two different types of gloves, wore a spike bracelet from hot topic, a cross choker and only one earring.

This is a pic of all of us right before we left for the first Halloween party. I went with my boyfriend's mother (who went as the joker) and her friend. The party was at Versailles Spa in CT, they invited their customers to the party. I have never received any services there but my boyfriend's mother has been there and invited us to go with her. They had a Halloween costume contest there and I won 2nd place! I recieved 2 free TCA peels as my prize! I am so excited and I can not wait to go to my appointment. I will be sure to take pics of my progress.

This is me and my boyfriend at another Halloween party. The only difference in this version is that I added different color hair extensions in each pony tail. 

BTW I put the make-up on my boyfriends face because he did not want to wear the mask all night...I have to say that I really enjoyed putting makeup on him!

I hope you liked my costume. What where you ladies for Halloween? LMK and if you have a blog post on it, leave a link in the comment section because I would love to see it or you can always let me know via Twitter @JessonBeauty or Instagram @Jess_No_Less

Some Instagram Shots!!

Hi Ladies,

Go figure, the moment I decide to start blogging again, I can't find the USB cord to my camera! AND I ran out of space in my PICASA web album?? Anyone know how to get around that so I do not have to pay per month??

Such is life I suppose, and I will be going to Best Buy to get another cord and I guess pay for an upgrade if I can't find a way to make more space so I can show you all my recent ULTA haul. In the mean time, I figured I could share some recent pics that I have posted on instagram, and let you in to my life outside of makeup.

I hope you enjoy the pics!

Me and my sister dressed up as cop and a prisoner for a Halloween Party last Saturday

I tried to bleach my hair!! What a disaster that was! If you would like I can write a post on what an EPIC FAIL that was!!!

I ADORE her!

Pumpkin Picking Pictures with my boyfriend and his family. They are not my kids lol...I don't have any

Lastly...I made Halloween "bloody hemorrahage" shots for a Halloween party this weekend. I made them with Green Apple Vodka, the "phlemy" stuff in the middle is Caramel Bailys, and the red "blood" is the Grenadine. These were fun to make!

If you have an instagram account, feel free to follow me @ Jess_No_Less and I will definatly follow you back!

I hope you enjoyed the pics and thanks for looking

This post is LONGGGG over due

Hello Ladies,
I have missed you all so much and I have missed blogging. I lost my "UMPH" so to say for putting makeup on over the past few months. There have been so many changes in my life and I have to admit it has been very hard to adjust to change after change. I am not person who adapts to change easily, since my entire life has been mostly consistant up until now. All this change in my life has upset me, depressed me and challenged me in ways I never imagined which led me to do nothing but focus on that pain and change HOWEVER because of this change I have grown and learned things in my life I never thought I would. I have also grown closer to some people I never thought I would and distanced myself from others.

I have heard if you are not hurting, you are not growing, and man, have I grown and still growing and learning.

Lately I have been trying to get back into the things I loved and ignorned because honestly, all I wanted to focus on was how upset I was and why me?? Despite knowing that this was unhealthy, I couldn't stop. I went to therapy, talked to family and friends and read tons of articles on how to get out of this "funk", nothing helped, sometimes it seemed like the more I talked about it the worse I felt.

I knew I had to get my passion and fire back for life that I once had. So little by little I am trying. I am slowely getting back to exercising again, shopping and putting on a full face of make up like I love to do. Friday night, we went to the Shaq All Star Comedy Jam, comedy show in NYC and I knew that would be the perfect day to do a full face, take pics, and share with you ladies.  I was excited for once and it felt great. I just hope I can keep it up.

So I present to you my Friday night look:

Foundation: MUFE 125
Concealer: Wet and Wild Coverall # 802
Undereye Concealer: Maybelline Dream Lumi (Love this stuff!)

I wanted a neautral eye because I wanted my pink lips to stand out
Lid: MAC Grain
Crease: MAC Cork
Outer V: MAC Expresso 
Highlight: MAC Grain
Liner: UD Zero
Lashes: Cheapy lashes I found on ebay, that I cut in half :P

Highlight: MAC Shell (my favorite ATM) 
Blush: MAC Gingerly (HG blush for me!)

MAC Speedial

And this is a highly editied pic using my iphone apps, which I enjoy doing from time to time!

NOW some pics from NYC!!!

Times Square

Dinner! NY Pizza! It was so good! But living in CT I am never deprived of good pizza

I thought this bike rack was awesome

Right before the show started 

At the end of the show with all of the comedians..yea that big guy to the left is Shaq lol

Please leave any and all questions or comments you may have, I really love all your feed back. I am looking forward to posting more and being part of this community again. Please let me know if there any posts you would like to see me do in the future, I appreciate your feedback and thank you all for your love and support.

This match is talked about A LOT. I alway hear about how NYX Atlantic is a dupe to MAC Freshwater. We will soon see how true this is!

NYX Atlantic VS MAC Freshwater

NYX Atlantic VS MAC Freshwater


NO, NO, NO! NOT a DUPE! I don't need to explain why, you can so SEE it! I do like NYX Atlanti better on my warmer skin tone than MAC Freshwater. BOTH are amazing blues, just NOT the same.
