  1. Mac Fashion Sets. I received Heroine (the es) and Embrace me (the lg) as samples so I did a look with it. I was a bit unsure on how to combine a pale blue and a bright pink in one look without ending up looking like Barbie herself ^^. Can’t wait to see Temperature Rising on you, especially that one pretty quad! Are you going to compare it to Mac Club? I’ve been dying to find out! ^^

  2. Stacey

    Nikki Roth Beauty on youtube. Shes smart, creative and has impeccable taste.

  3. Daenerys Targaryen! I’m working on a tutorial about her for my blog.

    Well a group asked the class to dress in blue to support their presentation on Thursday, so I went reallllyyyy over the top with blue on my eyes, lol. It looked great though!

    Lisa Eldridge’s take on Brigitte Bardot. I just love winged eye liner and with Lorac’s liquid liner, it’s so easy! I just love that look.

  6. Not very exciting, but I love taupe..LOVE taupe which usually reads purpley on me and brings out my green hazel eyes. So it’s not surprising that lately I’ve been hooked and inspired by my Maybelline color tattoo in Tough as Taupe. This partnered with Bobbi Brown Slate.. is my match made in heaven. I could wear this combo everyday and be happy… for now anyway.

    My turquoise Guerlain kohl loose powder – I lined my waterlines with it, then added some subtle grey-taupe shadow, blush, bronzer, and neutral lipstick, because I wanted my eyes to stand out!

  8. Yasmin

    Carmen Carrera! She looks so beautiful when she does her makeup, and i just had to recreate her neutral, nude face with really heavy smokey eyes.

  9. I don’t always have an inspiration in mind. But for my day-to-day makeup, I usually admire celebrities who wear minimal makeup.

    I’m not sure what’s going on but I’m viewing this post in Chrome and there is a huge gap between your header and your text/photo. There has always been a bit of an open gap between the two before but now the gap is like three times wider. Just thought I’d let you know.

      I’m sure you’re still working out the kinks with your new layout, but in case you weren’t aware the formatting of the site becomes kind of wonky when you click on a tag and the search function doesn’t seem to work. If you already knew about these issues feel free to ignore!

    • Do you mean between the navigation and the first post or the top of the post? It’s either an issue with the reskin ad that you may be seeing or if you’re running any ad blocker, then that’s where an ad would be :)

      • Yellowlantern

        I mean between the top of the post “What inspired your last makeup look” and your answer and photo of yourself.

        Unless Chrome has an ad blocker built in that’s the only way I would have ad blocking, I haven’t personally installed any ad blockers. Maybe that’s what’s going on though since I see your weekly features without a gap when I view them from my phone.

    I got the UD Fun Palette and so I did a sellout-stray dog-Maui wowie color combo, I also used bewitch I think from the Theodora Palette in the crease.

  12. My orchids that i bought on a whim :) They are just so pretty

  13. Jaye Brown

    My wedding shoes! They’re gold with an almost brocade type look with pastel blue, green and pink.

    It’s fun to find things that I love and transcribe the concept into makeup.

    It’s usually my nails, the first random product/palette I pull out, or whatever is newest. This week, I’ve been playing with the new Kat von D True Romance Ladybird palette, and combining the mattes with the previous palettes.

  15. Dior Bird of Paradise summer collection! Except that I used Hard Candy makeup in the same shades :)

  16. Nikki

    MAC Pink Nouveau lipglass

  17. Gold, glitter, and glamor! I did an eyeshadow gradient of pale to deep gold from my inner to my outer eyelids, further deepened with champagne and chocolate browns. Very decadent. Used my Shu Uemura Stretch Xtreme mascara too – plush and long lashes in an instant!

  18. Michelle Teixeira

    Tom Ford Summer Launch advert, the one with the dewy eyes and orange toned makeup.

    My cardigan. It matches UD 24/7 Liner Covet so I rimmed by eyes with that.
