Temptalia Asks You


If you could create your own MAC Collection, what would it be? What would you call it? What would be the theme? What would be in it?

If you were using MAC’s Evening Aura eyeshadow?, what look would you create with it? What shadows would you use? What would you use on cheeks? Anything added to the lips?

My week started off on a pretty bad note, which meant no makeup at all yesterday.  My puppy, Mellan, was scheduled to be neutered yesterday, but the Humane Society said he had a heart murmur graded 5 out of 6.  I couldn’t take the risk of him dying on the table for the sake of nixing his parts.  But of course, lots and lots of tears were spilled at the realization of just how mortal he is (and how much I love him).

We were aware he had a slight murmur (grade 1-2) since he was at least 12 weeks old, but it was minor and presumed to be a puppy murmur (which tend to disappear by six months).  We saw our vet yesterday, and he graded the murmur 3-4.  Today, Mellan is at our vet all day, so he can get his chest x-rayed and have the doctor listen to his heart throughout the day.  We are hoping for good news! *crosses fingers*

So since I’m liable to cry off any makeup I wear today, here is a look back at my favorite green looks I’ve done!  Just click the photo to see the full look and its details! :)

I LOVE emerald greens, because they’re so intense and vibrant, but they’re not not neon or chartreuse greens. I have a thing for smoky eyes, especially when there’s some gold glittering in the darker colors.

As much as mineralize eyeshadows *don’t* do it for me, I actually enjoyed the way last year’s Flashtronic shadows came out in this look!  I think it’s the softness of the greens, though the overall look is a bit frosty, I suppose.

This is kind of gold-green-blue, but still, I see predominantly green ;)  I love the way the blue liner popped, but I think the color of the gold blended well with the green.

I just LOVE this muted shade of gold-green and everything.  I am so tempted to try this again!

This is not my own creation, but it is a recreation based off of the Barbie Loves MAC promo photos!  I was so amazed at how this look turned out, because I was totally in love with it (still am!).
