Eye Envy and Giveaway Winners!!

I've come to so many realizations since Pinterest has crept into my life and taken it over.  A few are as follows:

1) I don't love Nutella, but apparently everyone else is obsessed with it
2) I am so much less creative and artsy than other people. But am considering DIYs for the first time ever. (This is huge)
3) I fail at eye makeup.  I SO want to be good at this, I'm just not. YET. But I will be.

In the spirit of this FABULOUS giveaway (including this Limited Edition Beauty kit from Benefit Cosmetics), I decided to share some of the amazing eye makeup inspiration pics I've seen on Pinterest.  Side Note: I understand and accept the fact that I will be making a significant investment in false lashes to pull off any of these looks.  

I like the smokey yet subtle look of this one...

Hello, Drama! This would be great for a SUPER glam special event. but I'm most scared of this one.

The next 3 are just fun AND gorgeous looking.  Love the different colors/textures on each shadow.

I'll be attempting this 'cranberry smokey eye' look for a fancy holiday dinner party in a few weeks. Wish me luck.

Now, drumroll..................

The WINNERS of the 'BeKown Interview Survival Kit' are:

#12: Jen from Red Soles & Red Wine
#31: Courtney from Sassy Jeweler

Congrats, Ladies!!!  I'll be in touch with you both today about your contact/mailing info!! :)


  1. I would LOVE to do your makeup sometime - smoky eyes are my favorite to do & easier than you think! Also individual false lashes are WAY more user-friendly & more realistic looking than the strips! :)

  2. omg I suck at eye makeup too - I can't even put on false lashes!! I need to make another attempt one day..

  3. Ha, I feel the same as you on all things learned from Pinterest ( I have to be sucked in) I do love all the eyes you showcased. I can never get my eyes to look that good. No matter I do. I guess we can practice together.

  4. Yea! Just saw your tweet! Love it, I need to work on my own techniques on my eyes. Thank you so much for the giveaway. Excited I won!!


  5. Beautiful inspiration indeed. I love those red shades, like the cranberry and pink ones, but somehow I am never able to recreate any of those. Well, maybe I am, but somehow then I always look like I cried my eyes out for hours just before the party *grin*, so I gave that up. I can't wait to see your results!

  6. Congrats to the give-away winners! I wish that it was open internationally :P

    I'm right there with you, I absolutely adore eye-make up, and have been slowly learning and getting the hang of it. There are so many looks I want to recreate, yet they never seem to turn out just right.


  7. totally agree in the eye make up department... and, yes, everyone else loves nutella! :)

  8. I spend soooo much time looking up eye makeup on pinterest. :) Love all of these looks!

  9. BREAKING my heart. No love for Nutella????


I love comments!! Let me know your thoughts :)
