Collaboration Part 2 with Nikki from Makeup Junkie Nikki!

Here we go again with part 2 of my collaboration with Nikki from Makeup Junkie Nikki! This second part is with the colours that I chose for the look, which ended up having a purple theme because I love MUG purples! <3

See Nikki's look here

I had an idea for this look for a while now and I waited til the last minute to persecute so I was actually extremely happy with how this turned out. I wanted to go for a purple smokey eye winged out in a cat-eye manner with a crease blended out with orange (or in this case with Chickadee - an orange-yellow). I am very pleased with how this came out and I hope you will all like it as well. :)

The colours used in part 2 of the collab are:

Cervical Cancer Awareness look

I am writing a special post today in dedication to one of my best friends. She was recently given an unexpected diagnosis of Cervical Cancer at 21 years old. Fortunately, the early diagnosis of cervical cancer is a very good thing as cervical cancer ends up being very curable; one of the most curable cancers.

This look is for cervical cancer awareness done for my friend because she means a lot to me. So let's look at some facts with regard to awareness:

  • cervical cancer is the third most common type of cancer in women
  • cervical cancer is largely preventable and curable with REGULAR Pap tests and pelvic exams;
    • in fact, cervical cancer is much less common in the United States because of routine pap tests.
  • when discovered as precancerous cells during a pap smear, it is 100% treatable
  • early cervical cancer has no symptoms, so regular pap smears are extremely important
  • sexually active women should undergo Pap tests starting at 21 and should be done every one to two years
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but let's face it ladies: We have other female parts which are extremely susceptible to cancer as well; so let's take the moment to learn a thing or two about cervical cancer today in addition to making sure we're getting regularly screened for early detection! Extremely treatable upon early detection.

So here's the look I did; the ribbon for Cervical Cancer awareness is teal and white so this look reflects that. I hope everyone likes it; this look and cause are very important to me.
