Congratulations to Carrie for her “Futuristic Monkey” Halloween Mask entry! She is the judges’ choice for the winner of our October contest. She wins $60 worth of beauty loot, and $30 of it will be MAC exclusive goodies!
I’d like to thank all of our entrants for their hard work and the time they put into their entries–we wouldn’t have even had a contest if it weren’t for you lovelies! And trust me when I say all the judges spent quite a bit of time deliberating over the masks, because it was a tough choice. As such, I’d like to thank our judges: Karen from Makeupandbeautyblog.com, MAC makeup artist Sally, and a few of our judges who wish to remain anonymous.
I used Your Ladyship pigment all over lid, Medallion eyeshadow all over lid, Trophy Pink eyeshadow on outer lid, Modern Heir eyeshadow on outer crease, Trophy Pink eyeshadow in outer crease, Medallion eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line. I wore Don’t Be Shy blush on cheeks with Sculpt sculpting powder to contour and Micro Pink beauty powder to highlight. I had Culture Class lipstick with Contessa lipglass on my lips.

What was in your last beauty haul/purchase? What did you buy? What did you love, sort of like, or hate?
Find your inner golden goddess this holiday season while you look like a Grecian princess in this darilng deep pink dress with gold detailing. We think all you need to take it from gorgeous to perfection is Yves Saint Laurent’s “White Gold” Celebration Palette, which features Tender Rose blush, Starry Rose highlighter, three eyeshadows (Heavenly Beige, Magic Copper, and Moonlit Burgundy), and three lip colors (Pure Garnet, Natural Beige, and Bohemia Rose), and Simply Gold Gloss. We recommend Magic Copper all over lid with Moonlit Burgundy in the crease and Heavenly Beige to highlight the brow. You could even try the Starry Rose highlighter if it isn’t too shimmery for your taste as a brow highlighter! Be sure to swipe on Tender Rose blush on the apples of your cheeks, while applying Starry Rose on your cheekbones, forehead, and chin for added radiance. Dust shoulders and d colletage with Starry Rose to really distract the male variety wherever you go! For luscious lips, we’re feeling Bohemia Rose with Simply Gold gloss patted on top for shimmery lips with gold sparkles.
1. Adriana Papell Sequin Grecian Halter Dress @ Nordstrom for $178.00
2. Yves Saint Laurent “White Gold” Celebration Palette @ Nordstrom for $67.00
This look is all about playing with golds and bronzes, keeping the face fairly natural and tame; the dress is bold and eye-catching on its own. To add more oomph to your look, try a pair of false lashes–not too dramatic–to achieve it without taking away from the rest. It’s important to give your face and body a healthy dose of “glow.” We love Jergen’s shimmery glow lotion, and we also love dusting beauty powders (like Peach Haze from MAC) along shoulders. Play up features, but this look is meant to compliment the dress while keeping the dress the central piece of the evening (we just think it’s gorgeous, don’t you?). If you must go ultra-glam, pump up the eyes with a truer gold like MAC’s Goldmine, but we think peachy-coral and rosy lips suit this dress best!
