MAC Marine Life Dupes -- Sorry, Keep Looking

When I think of dupes, I think of something that is pretty close to it -- I'm talking 90% or closer -- not just similar. There are plenty of similar shades to Marine Life; after all, it's really just a vibrant coral-red with minimal shimmer in it. NARS...

Look – Subtle with Shaping and Sculpting Line

I wanted to try to do something subtle, but with some shape, so I figured why not take my sculpting and shaping powders for a spin? I mean, I bought them all, and I pretty much never use them, LOL. And booo, I wanted to get my eye brows done, but the lady I go to is on vacation 'til Sunday :(

Look – Stila Gold Glow Trio and Subdued Red Lips

This look is from yesterday, and I wore to go see my parents. The boy, Mellan, and I headed up for lunch and dinner, for a bunch of grilled food. (Mmm, Korean BBQ ribs!!) Oh, and lots and lots of swimming ;) I really liked how Cult of Cherry added pop to Lightly Ripe, but not TOO much. I think...

Looks – Cult of Cherry Neutrals for Bold Lips

On Wednesday, I thought I might play around with some bold lip colors, so I popped on a neutral look, and then I had some fun. I tried Bing! mattene from Cult of Cherry, as well as So Scarlet (but I already had an idea of how that'd turn out in a look). I also tried on Clinique's Red-y to Wear. Now,...

Looks – Brighter Neutrals with Browns That Pop

This look was done on Sunday :) Something neutral while celebrating my sister's birthday with the fam. I did a very neutral look today (which I love, can't wait to share), as some of my relatives are in town, and I'm five minutes from heading out to meet up with my family and the extended family...

Looks – Silvery Grays and Blues

Hey all! Could you do me a favor and tell me what you think of this description format? I tried to combine what suggestions you have all given to me.
