    Britney!!! hahahaha
    When you featured Britney’s do from the VMAs just the other day, I thought to myself that this is one hot silver/grey combo!!

    Did a silver/grey look paired off with nude lippy (took a cue from Brit!)and the girls in the office loved it. (One even went to get Silver Ring e/s during lunchtime!!)

    This summers European Soccer Championship. I watched the game Croatia : Germany and I did a black-red-gold (Carbon-Star Violett-Going Bananas) eyeshadow look. But this was the first and last time, cause Ballack, Fings, Lahm and Schweinsteiger played horrible and lost an important game. Bad sign. After that I painted my toes in black-red-and gold, and the boys kicked ass.

    Your own matte black smokey eye tutorial that I found on this site. Put I used teal eyeshadow insted for the black one, over the gel liner.

It turned out really nice..Went to mac that day and the MA’s love it they wanted to know exactly now i put it together it was a nice compliment!!

    Mine was getting my lovely new pigment. Oh so pretty. I was thinking how I could get it too not be too extravagant for daily use, and suddenly I got the idea…

    The TV show “Mad Men”. It is my new crack and I’ve been trying out some of the 60s style makeup on there. The clothes are gorgeous too!

    Usually I’m always inspired by your looks that you post, Christine!

    Once I was inspired by Taylor Swift’s Teardrops video – I LOVE the jewels on the side of her eye! So I printed a picture and tried my best to recreate it for my husband’s birthday party. I thought it came out pretty good :-) I used some eyelash glue for the jewels. It was tough to do, but it looked cool.

    new makeup!

    gorgeous new eyeshadow from lily lolo (“cherry pie”) – the killer pink I always dreamed of. I’ve worn the same look for two and a half days now, that’s almost a first :)

    An ad for Sephora- the model was wearing UD’s 24/7 eyeliner in the navy blue color in the waterline and lower lash line- I went within the hour and picked it up!! I wear that look A LOT A LOT!!

    The Mac Cult of CHerry promo pics inspired me. Ever since then its been dramatic dark lips! I love this fall look. Its fun to try something so eccentric and out there! Totally out of the box! Now is the perfect time to rock the dark lips because come spring time you will look Marilyn Manson-esque!
