Quick look, tried to be soft.

I used Soft Ochre paint pot on lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on lid, Shimmermoss eyeshadow on outer crease and lightly on outer lid, Juxt eyeshadow above crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow on brow and lower lash line, Urban Decay Stash 24/7 liner on lower lash line, and Maybelline Full ‘N Soft Waterproof mascara on lashes. I had Lilicent blushcreme stippled on cheeks with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer on cheeks to highlight. I wore Overrich lipstick (LE) with Squeeze It! lipglass (LE) on my lips.

Overrich = Vegas Volt; Squeeze It! = Pop Mode

If you were using MAC’s Illegal Cargo eyeshadow?, 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 Illegal Cargo! Feel free to share links to photos of your look(s) using it in the comments.

Temptalia Asks You


What do you notice first about someone else’s makeup? Eyes? Lips? If they did a good or bad job?

Temptalia Asks You


How often do you buy foundation? How long does it take you to get through one foundation? Are you regularly switching it up?

Quick little look! Thought I’d try a look that incorporates blue but in a subtler way for those who are a little afraid of going all-out in the blue department. The lips took it from subtle to more, though–so opt for nude or light pink lips for a truly subtle look!

It’s my Dad’s birthday (Happy 53rd!), so I’ve got some surprises in store for him (shh, he occasionally happens upon the blog, so I can’t spill the details!).  It’s going to be a wickedly warm weekend here in northern California, so I’m gearing up to have some outdoor fun.  What about you guys?  What do you have in store for tonight and the weekend?

I used Lark About pigment (LE) on lid, Vex eyeshadow on inner lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on middle of lid, Nylon eyeshadow on outer lid, Soft Brown eyeshadow in outer crease, Satin Taupe eyeshadow on outer crease, Freshwater eyeshadow (very lightly) in outer crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, Blue Herizon liquidlast liner on upper lash line, and Kanebo 38+ mascara on lashes. I had Other Worldly blush (LE) on cheeks. I wore Rockocco lipstick (LE) with Cult Fave lipglass (LE) and Apex 3D glass (LE) on my lips.

Lark About = Phloof!; Feline = Graphblack; Other Wordly = Honour; Rockcocco = Lady Danger; Cult Fave = Cultured; Apex = Lychee Luxe (not a great dupe)
