POP Beauty’s Cat Eyes for Easy Cat Eye Liner

POP Beauty's Cat Eyes ($16.00) is an eye crayon that's angled and shaped to help streamline the cat eye lining process.  It comes in three colors: Black Onyx, Black Dahlia, and Black Olive.  I tried out Black Onyx, because it's a classic cat eye color, so how could I lose?  I really liked the...

Look – Gold, Copper, & Black Smoky Eye for New Year’s Eve 2008

Here's my New Year's Eve look! :) There are two different lip looks I used with this look -- the one I'll actually be sporting is the lighter, less bold lip, but I figured it was worth a shot to see how a redder lip might look with it, too. You know, for those who want to be more dramatic ;)

FWIW, I...

Look – Soft Neutrals for Thanksgiving

I did this look for Thanksgiving -- something natural and simple, but still noticeable :) I did my makeup today for the first time since Thanksgiving, and it was horrible and felt SO, SO very unnatural.  I was like, "Wow!  Talk about rusty!"  By the by, I used Too Faced's Shadow Insurance for the...

Looks – Going Work Safe–For Real!

I have my practice oral argument, which is basically where I speak for eight minutes, then my opponent argues against me, and then I have another two minutes for rebuttal. What's great is that it seems impossible to prepare for, so while I have some prepared remarks, I'm mostly going to wing it. ...
