Here’s the video tutorial I spoke of in the look post earlier today… As I mentioned, I’m really disappointed with the quality of the video from the Flip camera I was trying out. I’m going to use my other camera for the next video attempt, whenever that may be, I couldn’t tell ya ;) I hope you at least find it somewhat useful.

Here’s a really quick look using a bunch of BBR products :) I also attempted a video tutorial for it, but I’m really disappointed in the quality of the video–a little blurry, poor color–so I definitely won’t be using my Flip camera again! (It was free, thankfully.) I’ll have to give my DSLR’s video takin’ capabilities a shot next time I get around to doing a video. I think I can safely say that me putting out *any* video is an accomplishment ;)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Your Ladyship pigment (beige-pink), Flip eyeshadow (soft yellow bronze gold), French Cuff eyeshadow (bronzy-pink), 100 Strokes eyeshadow (burgundy), Femme-fi eyeshadow (highlighter), Feline kohl power (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Fleurry blush (soft peach-pink), Redhead mineralize skinfinish (copper-bronze highlighter)
  • Lips: All’s Fair lipstick (berry pink), Live & Dye lipglass (pastel pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 214 (flat, stubby brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush), 226 (fluffy crease brush)
  • Substitutes: Flip = Goldmine + Nylon; French Cuff = Mythology; 100 Strokes = Sketch; Feline = Graphblack; Fleurry = Foolish Me; Redhead = Soft & Gentle; All’s Fair = Sweetie; Live & Dye = Love Nectar

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Your Ladyship pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Flip eyeshadow using the 239. Apply French Cuff eyeshadow to the middle/outer portion of the lid. Darken crease with 100 Strokes eyeshadow using the 239. Sweep Femme-fi underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Feline kohl power on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Fleurry blush and Redhead MSF using the 129. Apply All’s Fair lipstick to lips, and then top with Live and Dye lipglass for color and shine.

A week or so ago, I posted about Urban Decay releasing four new shades of their coveted 24/7 Eye Liners. They are every bit as amazing as the shades before them! Graffiti is a brighter, grassy green.  Flipside is a fun, bright poolside blue with an aqua sheen.  Underground is a revved up medium-to-dark brown with subtle sheen.  Of the four, Ransom is absolutely worth getting.  Ransom is a stunning, decadent jewel-tone royal purple.

If you only get one, get Ransom for sure!  And if you’re only getting a few 24/7 liners, it should be in your top three.  It’s truly just that stunning; it’s rich in the color, but it’s so pretty.  The blue-purple sheen it gives off is so glam!

I stopped by the Urban Decay counter yesterday to chat up a lovely artist, and she let me know that these lovelies wouldn’t be hitting the market until early to mid February.  I know UrbanDecay.com has a preview of their spring products, so hopefully they won’t hold out on us too much longer!  I adore the 24/7 liners immensely–seriously, I’m in the process of collecting them all!

See watches of the new fab four! Continue reading →

Temptalia Asks You


Do you often ask makeup artists for help/advice? Or do you prefer to do your own thing and just ask them for the items you need?
