What’s your favorite evening look? Black/blue/purple smokey eyes, black liner and mascara, pale pink/nude cheeks and lips.

I can’t say that I have an everyday look, since I tend to change dramatically from one day to the next. One I go back to regularly is a neutral eye plus some plum/ brown for shading (usually using MAC Vanilla plus Sable, Twinks, etc.) and black eyeliner. Then I’ll do a warmish pink cheek and a red/ berry lip.

For a special occasion, there’s really no rule. I tend to choose a look that coordinates with whatever I plan on wearing, since I like to have a complete look.

For an evening out, I’ll generally go dramatic and do a dark or smoky eye (black and silver or black and gold usually) and a really vampy lip. I have so many dark lip colours it’s ridiculous. But I can always see the difference between them, even if no one else can 😛

Since my hair keeps changing, I’m forced to keep changing these. 😛 I was a redhead until a little while ago – now, as a brunette, I can wear much brighter colours. I’m also a student, and I haven’t really been able to lay down $40-60 for a base and several MAC eye shadows, sooo…

Everyday – tightline eyes with black eyeliner, lots of mascara, cream blush (MAC Lady Blush) on the cheeks with a highlighter (Body Shop’s Shimmer Waves) over that. And then a tinted lip balm like Burt’s Bees with pomegranate oil.

Special Occasion – MAC Red lipstick, black cat-eye with a little smudged eyeliner just on the lash line, mascara or falsies, cream blush with Spring Sheen on top, shimmery highlighter on the inside of the eye and top of the brow and maybe a neutral eyeshadow swept over the lid.

Evening – Eyeliner, eyeliner, eyeliner! And mascara. I usually make a winged-out, angular shape (as opposed to a regular cat-eye) and maybe sweep a plum or bronze shadow over the lid. Blush, highlighter and MAC Crosswires, or this bright berry pink from Smashbox finishes it off.

What’s your favorite everyday look?
I love to just go natural and just do a simple eye and a nude blush and lip balm. I just think it less is more and it looks better.

What’s your favorite special occasion look? Hmmm I think a pink&cranberry eye. UD shadows, pink cheeks and a pink lip.

What’s your favorite evening look? Gold eyes with green in the crease, ginger cheeks, still nude/pink lips.

* What’s your favorite everyday look? a light foundation like Clinique Superfit or Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer, Clinique cream shaper eyeliner in chocolate lustre or egyptian, lots of mascara, too faced chocolate bronzer, orgasm blush and a tinted lip balm/treatment like Sugar Rose lip treatment or Bobbi Brown tinted lip balm in pink popsicle.

* What’s your favorite special occasion look? Special occasion would include neutral brown and gold eye shadows, eyeliner, a fuller foundation like Lancome Teint Idole. Also contour and highlighting with too faced bronzer and mac msf in soft and gentle. Finish with lipstick and gloss on top!

* What’s your favorite evening look? My fav. evening look is black eyeliner and a fuchsia lip (I love MAC Hollywood Nights from Heatherette) or a smoky dark green eye with light pink lip gloss.

everyday: I usually reach for the Urban Decay Ammo Palette. I use Grifter all over the lid, Last Call in the outer third and crease, and Sin right above my lashes in the middle third. Then, I use MAC Blacktrack Fluidline and make a slightly winged out line and on the waterline. My mascara changes daily, but my go-to is usually L’oreal Voluminous as a base and L’oreal Extra Volumn Collagen layered over it. I rarely wear lipstick. Blush: I either wear Sugarbomb by Benefit or Well Dressed by MAC. Then, I highlight my cheekbones with Honour blush by MAC.

Special Occasion: I use the Coastal Scents 28 Neutral Palette and make a brown smokey eye with Blacktrack Fluidline for waterline and upper lid liner. Then, I use Creme d’ Nude lipstick by MAC with Sugar Rimmed Dazzleglass over it. For cheeks, I use a lot of MAC Honour for a highlight, and Well Dressed blush. Mascara changes, but L’oreal is generally my favorite.

Night look: Black Bean NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil as base, Black/silver smokey eye from my Coastal Scents 88 Shimmer Palette. Blacktrack liner on waterline and upper lid, loads of mascara. lips: Creme d Nude and Sugarrimmed Dazzleglass. Cheeks never really change.

I always use Too Faced Shadow Insurance. It’s my favorite by far.

What’s your favorite everyday look? I like to wear UD’s Chopper on the inner half of my lid and Twice Baked on the other half of the lid and use Twice Baked again on my crease then put some black eyeliner. For blush I will wear NARS Luster, the lips will remain with a sheer hint of coarl or orange color and glitter. Oh and I can’t forget my mascara!

What’s your favorite special occasion look? I don’t have a specific look but on special occasions I would go over the top from my normal everyday look.

What’s your favorite evening look? It would usually be the same from my everyday look.

* What’s your favorite everyday look: patina + mulch
