How are your beauty [and other New Year] resolutions going? Are you making progress or have you tossed the resolution in the wind?
I’ve been okay on some of mine, but not great on the Starbucks resolution, that’s for sure! LOL. I swear they put cocaine in their drinks, so addicting!
If you were using MAC’s Lychee Luxe lipglass, what look would you create with it? What shadows would you use? What would you use on cheeks? Anything added to the lips?
Create a look using whatever you want, as long as you include Lychee Luxe! Feel free to share links to photos of your look(s) using it in the comments.
What are you doing this weekend? Fun night out? Spending the day curled up with a good book? Taking the kids to the park? Share!
My boyfriend and I are going to his mom’s house to watch the UFC fight on Saturday, and we’ll stay through Sunday. I’ll be busy reading up for next week’s classes, but at least he’ll have fun! I’m supposed to teach his brother how to play piano while I’m there, too. Busy busy!
Get It While It’s Hot had a blurb about the dolls coming out for Fafi For MAC, debuting February 13th, 2007. Make sure to check your stores for event dates (some stores are having preview nights!).
Products: Corn shadestick, Bitter eyeshadow, Electric EEL eyeshadow, Chrome Yellow eyeshadow, crystal avalanche eyeshadow, samoas silk eyeshadow, engraved eye-liner, # 36 Lashes and duo glue, ZoomBlack mascara, and auto-de-blu technakohl liner.
Brushes: 242 brush, 217 brush, 224 brush, and 231 brush.
Sarah walks us through the steps she used on her model…
Step 1: taking Corn shadestick apply all over eyelid and a little above eyelid by using a windshield wiping motion with your hand.
Step 2: taking your 242 brush, pick up Bitter eyeshadow and apply to inner corners of eyelids stroking outward towards the middle of the eyelid.
Step 3: taking a clean 242 brush (or use other side of brush) pick up Chrome Yellow eyeshadow and apply to middle of the eyelids. Note: pack on the shadow until desired color is achieved.
Step 4: taking your 224 brush, gently blend the yellow and green slightly together so it doesn’t look like the colors have a line between them.
Step 5: taking your clean 242 brush, pick up Electric Eel eyeshadow and pat onto the outer corners of the eyelids. Again colors may need to be retouched for desired brightness.
Step 6: taking your 231 brush, dust Crystal Avalanche under your eyebrow for a brow highlight.
Step 7: taking your 217 brush, gently blend Samoas Silk into the crease, blending the 2 colors into the middle of the crease.
Step 8: mascara your lashes really good. apply duo glue to the # 36 lashes and apply them.
Step 9: apply Graphblack liner to the bottom waterline (inner membrane) of the eyelids.
Step 10: apply Auto-de-blu liner underneath bottom lash line and blend out with fingers.

NEW COLUMN ALERT! Step Into My Shoes is a new column that I am testing out that will revolve around “what if” scenarios. The point is for you to put yourself into the person’s shoes and come up with remedies for them, and offer any advice you can for them. Sometimes the scenarios might be outlandish, ridiculous, hilarious, or totally and utterly applicable and serious. You are welcome to submit your own scenarios, too! Just e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
SCENARIO: I have incredibly oily skin. It’s like I’m my own grease pit! All I want to do is find a way to reduce the excess oil–permanently? Is it possible? I look like it’s 100 degrees outside, I’ve run ten miles, and it’s humid. What do I do? Are there any products that will tame my super slick skin? Save me!
