Full Exposure

Speaking of makeup, in the last month, one of my favorite makeup products has become the Full Exposure eyeshadow palette from Smashbox. Aside from the texture and beautiful range of neutrals, the best thing about this palette is that it focuses in on getting the most out of your eye shape. I never thought about makeup being applied based on your shape, but I knew it really made a difference when Keith commented “your eyes look extra bright and sultry today…”
After answering a few short questions from their ‘Get the Look’ insert, it was determined that I have hooded eyes. Based on that, I used a few colors to create a natural day look. I used a medium and darker shade on my lid and a lighter one on my brow bone and really blended them together.ย Not sure what your shape is? You can find outย here.
Also, Smashbox is giving away tons of awesome prizes, including 1,000 eye shadow primers, up to 500 Full Exposure Palettes and a trip to L.A., for 2! Here’s how it works:
*Submit a selfie showing off your eye shape and hashtag it with #shapematters. You can enter directly on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or you can upload directly to the contest site.ย 
*There’s no limit to the amount of times you enter.
*Don’t forget to make your settings public so that your picture shows up on the contest page! Good Luck!Photo by Keith Hodne

    Normally, the plans advertised by web hosting companies refer to their shared plans. For example, if you see that a company is advertising its plan for $4.99 per month, it is likely that it is talking about its shared plans.

    The advantage of shared plans is that they are cheaper, but the disadvantage is that they are not very extensible. If your site becomes popular suddenly, and sees a spurt in traffic, it may not be able to sustain the extra load in bandwidth or processing. This is clearly explainable by the fact that it is costler to rent a complete machine, than to rent shared access to it. Therefore, if you want to be able to have more control over the responsiveness and quality of your site, you should apply for dedicated plans. ipage hosting review. arvixe hosting review
