5 Summery Peachy-Pink Eyeshadows

This is one of my favorite colors to wear! As someone with a warmer undertone, this type of color is flattering--it brightens, warms up, and looks (fairly) natural on. I can do a quick sweep on the lid, or I can incorporate it with other shades like golds,...

Easy Makeup: Soft & Sweet for Spring

I wanted to wear Stylesetter, so I figured a softer eye would be best, because Stylesetter is pretty bright on its own. I don't know if I've done a combination with these kinds of colors before, but I was pleasantly surprised at how it turned out.

Kind of funny, because I wore this look to my parents' house on Saturday, and my mom described it was, "Bitchy." As in, I looked mean, like a bitch. Coming from my mom, it was about the last thing I thought she said. (She didn't mean it badly, and I didn't take offense!)

I used Mega-Rich pigment...
