How photo editing can make a differance

As some of you may know, I am a member on Makeupgeek.com. On the forum, one the members (BombshellBarbie) does photo editing for a hobby and offered to edit some of our pictures. She does an AMAZING job and I just wanted to show everyone how big of differance photo editing can make in picture. I wil post the orginal picture and then the edited one underneath it. The first one she just edited, the last two she did an edit on and added makeup to it. What do you think of picture editing?
I personally don't mind it, I think I still look the same overall, but there is more emphasis on certain features to make things pop. I also don't mind when people use editing for FOTD. To each their own, I say! I think they look beutiful either way


No eyeliner Look-inspired by temptalia--Greens!

So I have recently become a HUGE fan of http://www.temptalia.com/ I noticed that in almost all her looks, she never really wears black eyeliner. I usually ALWAYS wear black eyeliner on my upper lashline, but this time I decided to try her method and not wear any and see how it comes out. I was surprised by the fact that I do like it, especially for a day time look. What do you ladies think?

Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara

Hey everyone,
Sorry for the huge gap in posts. I finished by first year of nursing school and now I have one more year left!! However I had to take Micro this summer, but I am almost finished with it..2 more weeks left!
I just got a sample for sephoria for Lancome hypnose drama and I really like it so far. I amy buy a full tube when I am finished with the sample. It claims to gives the ultimate volume mascera for lash drama. To create full body high volume lashes, it has a full contact brush with an "S" shape curve, won't flake or clump.
Here are some pics of the mascera:
