  1. No luck really, but I’ve been experimenting with bright lipsticks (Revlon Siren, Covergirl Fairytale, MAC Ever Hip). Anyone have any ideas how to pair eye makeup with bright lips? I’m also eyeing Milani Rose Hip and MAC Vegas Volt!

    • If you have small eyes, use a shimmery neutral shadow, and add liner and mascara. Add more if you think your eyes need more definition. If you have larger eyes, use a neutral satin shadow instead.

    I did a look with Surf baby products that I really liked:
    Mac Painterly as a base on the eyelids, then Swell Baby all over the lid.
    Short shorts in the crease and blended up under the browbone.
    Mac X black mascara and Clinique pewter eyeliner.
    Then I used Surf USA as a liner along the upper lash line and up and into the outer V.
    A little more Short shorts under the lower lash line completed the eyes.
    All I did for the lips was a light coat of Good Lovin’ gloss.

  3. I just did a look the other day with a pink peach on the inner third, purple on the outer 2/3s and some blue in the crease, with a shimmery white highlight. It was inspired by Final Fantasy’s Yuna. xD

    Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua on Face, Benefit Erase Paste under eyes with powderflage over. Grey Satin Shade from TF Naked Eye Palette with the grey and peach sparkly shades from the Glamour to Go II palette over on lids and faded up into crease. Clinique high impact mascara and bottom lash mascara on lashes. Benefit Dandelion on Cheeks and Stila all over liquid luminizer as highlight. Chanel Aurore glossimer on lips. Love a daytime smokey look with very minimal other makeup

    I just got my surf baby stuff in the mail, and I couldn’t wait to use it! My look I did with it was sun blonde on the lid with surf USA in the crease blended into MACs Club concentratedin the outer crease and on the last 1/3 of the lid. The I topped it off with brown liquid liner winged out and black mascara. My cheeks were Too Faced’s La Vie En Rose, and on my lips was NYX’s new Fortune Cookie round lipstick and MAC’s Nymphette lip glass.

  6. My favorite is a simple look with orange and coral (if you want to see it, it’s the post for today on my blog. Just click my name). I used Persephone Minerals’ Mars Crystal Power on the lid and Urban Decay’s Jones widely in the crease. It was really simple to do, but I got a lot of compliments on it! For my lips I used MAC’s Ever Hip lipstick under Sleek’s Sugar May lip conditioner.

    One of my favourite looks this week was using Mac Bio Green eyeshadow:
    Painterley (base)
    Bio Green (lid)
    Kid (crease)
    Texture (over Kid in the crease)
    Blanc Type (highlight).

    My other favourite look this week was using Mac Noir Plum from the peacocky collection:
    Painterly (base)
    Noir Plum (lid)
    Black-Tied (crease and a little in the outer v, using 219 brush)
    Crystal (inner corner)
    Blanc Type (highlight)
    Noir Plum (lower lashline).

      I bet the Noir Plum look was pretty; I have that shadow and just love it but I always struggle when putting together brights or dark colors. I am trying to branch out from neutrals. Thanks for sharing!

    My favorite look of the week would have to be Thursday’s look. I wore Urban Decay’s Grifter all over the lid on top of Pixie Epoxy, then I used Urban Decay’s Romp in the outer corner and outer crease. I put two coats of UD’s Skyscraper mascara, and UD’s Zero 24/7 in my upper and lower waterline. On my cheeks I wore Benefit’s Bella Bamba. On my lips I wore Rimmel London’s Latino lipstick with Urban Decay’s Pocket Rocket in James on top!

    Today I was just playing around with my makeup and came up with this cute, simple somkeyish look:
    for my lid, I took the bottom right corner colour (seafoam ish green/silver) from the NYX smokeu lok kit, then I took Vex in the inner half of my eye, I took NYX Electric Blue jumbo eye pencil in my crease and Club over top (JEP to bring out the blue duo-chrome) and brule in my crease. I lined my upper lash line with a black gel liner and my bottom lash line with the Electric blue JEP.
    I bronzd my face with Rimmel London’s Natural bronzer in Sun Dance and My Paradise blush on my cheeks.

  10. Becca

    oh I forgot! on my lips I have NYX Sparkling Flamingo and a bit of Harmonica

  11. Karen

    UDPP in Sin all over the lid, UD Sin on the inner 1/3 of my lid, UD Woodstock on the outer 2/3 of my lid and a sparkly black no name shadow in the crease. Finished with UD Zero and L’Oreal Collagen mascara. For my cheeks I used Hard Candy Blush Crush in Dollface and on my lips I used Cargo Serengeti Lipgloss

    A GREAT skin week for me…after really sticking to my regime for 4 weeks and drinking lots of water. Thus, I wore very little make up this week!
    1)Laura Mercia brow gel (the one in the pot) in blond
    2)TARTE Amazonian Clay Blush – Glisten shade
    3)Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment spf 15 – Plum
    4)Garden Botanica lid primer – no shadow or just a really nude pink, no shimmer
    5)An old gray pencil liner I adore from Bourjois – top and bottom
    6)Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer with spf 30 in Butter

    My skin is just glowing of late!

  15. i wore a look using shimmery neutrals with a bit of darkness to contour — it turned out look somewhat bridal. check it out on my blog here:

  16. Elfa

    NARS sheer glow foundation in Siberia
    Mineralized skin finish natural in light
    Mac golden bronzer
    Mac alpha girl beauty powder
    Mac misbehave mineralized blush
    On my eyes I’m wearing the nars dogon duo with the dark navy charcoal color on the lid with the duochrome taupe patted on top and blended into the crease. Mac shroom for a brow highlight. I lined my upper lashline and waterline with mac blacktrack fluidline and my lower waterline with the nc15/nw20 chromagraphic pencil.
    On my lips I’m just wearing mac frozen dream lipglass.
    The whole look is very fresh and modern looking. I dig it. :)

  17. Fitrah

    MAC bare study paint pot then Sugarpill tako all over the lid, then thick slightly winged out black liner set with Wet N Wild’s black eyeshadow with silver sparkle.

  18. Kris

    This week was sensible week! Bobbi Brown’s Navajo as a base, UD Virgin on the lid ad as a highlight on the browbone, and MAC Copperplate in the crease. UD Zero smudged on the upper lashline, and plenty of mascara :) Bobbi Brown’s coral cream blush on the cheeks set with Nars Orgasm and Nars Albatross as a cheek highlighter

  20. Teals and golds are a lovely combo, with browns too.

    My favourite look this week would be the NARS makeover I had on Wednesday. I told the makeup artist to try Exotic Dance on my eyes – the white as highlight for the browbone, the antique gold on the lid, with Coconut Grove on the outer corner layered over antique gold for definition.

    Cheeks – Deep Throat with Desire layered on top.
    Lips – Carthage which is really HOT!

  25. alison

    i’ve been slacking on makeup lately (started a new job, waking up early every day… ew), but i actually did a full face today i really like!

    nars sheer matte in mont blanc (giving this foundation a second chance before returning it… liking it better so far).

    sun blonde on the lid, saffron in the crease, lord it up on upper and lower lash line, UD zero on the waterline, lancome hypnose drama.

    made to order l/s, love nectar l/g.

    stereo rose (VERY lightly) on cheeks.

    so nice and summer glowy, even though it’s been gross and rainy all day here. :/

  26. Michelle

    This brought out my eyes without looking overdone: NYX Champagne (light shimmery peachy brown color) on lids, matte dark brown eyeshadow in creases, and Rimmel Jet Black eyeshadow as eyeliner on top and bottom lash lines.

  27. Alicia

    Oh I wore a turquoise UD on the lid (the name escapes me), MAC sunny spot on the inner corner of the lid, UD Goddess on the crease, and wore the turquoise on my bottom lash line, topped it all off with Blacktrack liner!

  28. Callen

    Vex on the lid, Copperplate in the crease, and Shroom as a highlight. Perfect every day neutral eye :)

  29. Emily O.

    I made the mistake of only bringing the Pop eye color palettes on my weekend jaunt so I had to discover how poor the quality of the product is. Hence the moment I got home I dug into my neglected MAC and put together Sugershot, Pink Slip( I know this one is stubborn) and Mystery and it came out subtley smokey. I’m also hooked on OPI Skull and Glossbones, which even though OPI can really grind my gears, is a pretty rockin color.

  30. Christine

    I am trying out my surf baby crushed metal pigments…the first one I was dying to try was the gold, such a pretty colour…I used it all over my lid and a bit underneath with tons of mascara and perversion on the lower lash line…we are having a party tonight and its the perfect welcome summer nights look! Just a little orgasm on my cheeks and boy bait cremesheen on my lips and I am ready to rock!! YEAH for the end of school and begining of summer!!

  31. Amber

    I’ve been pretty plain this week. I’m in a beauty funk.

    EYESUrban Decay’s Naked Palette has been my saving grace. Smog on my lid and Darkhorse in my crease. MAC’s Stereo Rose Mineralized Skinfinish as my highlight. MUFE’s Aqua Mascara for my lashes. I line my upper lash line with Stila’s liquid eyeliner in black. And my lower lash line with Urban Decay’s 24/7 pencil in Zero. My lower lashes I use Clinique lower brow mascara in black.
