Temptalia Asks You


Do you consider yourself a beauty addict/junkie? Are you just totally all-over makeup? Do you LOVE everything about it? Or do you think you’re a little more low-key?

As you can tell, I’m trying to put together some looks using the pigments that will come out in Overrich! Today, I tried to kill two birds with one stone ;) I think I like this look, though I feel like it’s actually subtler than I originally envisioned it would be (which is probably a good thing!).

We’re off to the MGM Grand for some much-raved-about (by my mom!) duck noodle soup. Nummos! The Palazzo for the afternoon (aka trip to Barneys)! So much food, I feel like I’ve eaten enough for a few weeks. I fly home tomorrow morning, but a part of me can’t wait to be back home, because I miss Mellan & the boy <3

Hope your Sunday is nice and easy :)

P.S. – If you need a liner that lasts all day, no smudging, fading, or migrating–go get yourself some Urban Decay 24/7 liners. STAT!

I used Vintage Gold pigment (LE) on inner half of lid, Antique Green pigment (LE) on outer half of lid, Lucky Green eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on inner/middle of lid, Patina eyeshadow on middle of lid, Newly Minted eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease and on brow to highlight, UD Stash 24/7 liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Margin blush with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer on cheeks. I wore Tiger Tiger lipstick (LE) with Rosy Coral PRO gloss and a touch of Dejarose lipglass (LE) on my lips.

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Vintage Gold = Gold (metal); Antique Green = Olive Green + Forest Green; Lucky Green = Swimming + Goldmine; Tiger Tiger = Cherish; Dejarose = Valentine’s
