5 Luxurious Eggplant Purple Eyeshadows

Deep, decadent purples with red undertones make me think of eggplants.  They can be a tough beast to master, often because they come in matte finishes, but they're so worth practicing and perfecting.  They can add so much depth to your look; I love...

Valentine's Day Makeup: It's the New Pink

Last night, I asked the late night Twitter crowd if I should do a colorful or natural look -- I was originally thinking about doing something soft and natural, but colorful was the voice of the majority, so I ran with it. I thought about it, and I decided...

Holiday Makeup: Gold & Cranberry + Bold Lips (or Bronze Lips!)

This is almost like a two-for-one kind of look, because I took photos of two [drastically] different lip combinations -- the first is a deeper plummy red and the second more of a bronzy nude. I wanted to try out some of the products I've reviewed lately, so that's where I tried to draw inspiration...
