Evening Look: Smoky Eyes & Red Lips

Still loving Chanel Dragon.  Still my favorite red!   Also still loving Guerlain Parure Gold (which is totally my "special occasion" foundation).  It's always nice when you go back to your favorites and you find they're just as amazing as you remembered!

Psst......

Sometimes it can be fun just to experiment with your makeup, and you know when is a really good time to do it? Before you're going to go to bed! After I finished photographing Urban Decay's Naked Palette, I really wanted to do something using Gunmetal, but I wanted it to...

Softly Smoky: Drama, but Not Too Much

Quickie look I did before I took my midterm to test out the wear of some new products I'm trying out! :) I will say I refuse to use Urban Decay's Maui Wowie eyeshadow again. I'm through with it! It is fallout city, and even when I use it with a sticky base,...

Here's a quick and dirty look using products from MAC's Love Lace Collection!  I managed to squeeze in all four of the eyeshadows that came out. Just an FYI, Blanc Type looks very, very subtle in real life -- it's not a very camera-friendly color (tends to look a lil' on the...

Look: MAC Photorealism Eyeshadow Quad Made Easy

Here's an attempt at using MAC's Photorealism eyeshadow quad :) The photos are a little wonky, because silly me forgot to change the white balance settings before taking these photos, SO I had to muck around with them (to get the right color) in Photoshop. I think they're *fairly* accurate, but...

You will need the following...

Look – Quick & Dirty Smokey Eyes

Quick and dirty smoky eye :) So, I finally get my foundation to match my skin in *natural* light... but then either the foundation or my setting powder reflects light and it doesn't match in photos! Apparently, my bathroom light is terrible, because so many foundations looked like they were a...
