Here's a wintry wonderland kind of look! There's not much to it, and I tried to stick with mostly permanent eyeshadow shades as well. I felt like I hadn't done a blue-ish look in awhile, so I figured I should knock one out!

Happy Wednesday!

Look: White Gold & Teal with MAC Mystic Cool Eyeshadow Palette

I wanted to try and do a look that used some of MAC's new holiday palettes, and of course, I really wanted to use Hold My Gaze from the Sorceress palette. As much as I like Hold My Gaze, I don't really love it with the other shades in the palette, so I decided to use it alongside the Mystic Cool...

Look: Subtle Green & Teal with Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. II

How's your Wednesday treating you? By the time this post goes live, my butt will be taking a midterm! Can't wait for that to be over! :)

Look – Dramatic Blue & Teal Look with False Eyelashes

Yesterday, I was SO excited! Why? Because I applied false eyelashes for the first time to myself without it taking all day long. False eyelash application is most definitely an area where I lack expertise in (I can tell you all the tricks--I just can't get them to work for me!), and one of the...

Look – Bright, Fiery Sunset

Remember I told you I attempted a look on Saturday, and how it came out SO similar to the last look I posted? Here it is, LOL! It's not quite the same; it's obviously kicked up a few notches in brightness/boldness, but the color scheme is still kind of similar, yeah? Not really a bad thing all...
