Are there shades of black? Indeed there are! Not every black eyeliner is the same. There are soft blacks, medium blacks, and deep blacks (and of course, variations within those categories). To try and make some sense of it all, I'm going to...

Blast From the Past: Oh, C-Shock! Come Back!

Blast From the Past: Oh, C-Shock! Come Back!

This is probably one of my favorite looks that I've ever done. MAC's C-Shock Collection was also likely one of my favorite launches, too. For those unfamiliar with the collection, it consisted of all the usual candidates, but the eyeshadows were the stars. They were bright, pigmented, smooth, and...

Look – Hello Kitty Themed Orange & Pink

Quick look using Hello Kitty products! I really like the way this look looks from afar, because it's not quite as flawless as I'd like it to be up-close so definitely make sure you see the full face photo before you judge! :) I do like the way black liner and Glamourpuss glitter liner look...

Here's one last Chill look before we all forget about Chill and move onto Dame Edna next week! ;) I thought I'd do something really simple -- it's basically three eyeshadows and that's it, which is a huge deal for me, as I'm sure many of you know. :P I wanted to try out some new YSL lip products I...

Look – Bright Red Holiday Lips

This is a super quick look from a week or two ago--it was actually not so great looking in person, LOL. Why? Because I discovered the foundation I used was too dark on me, and I was plagued by the dreaded orange face!! I was soo embarrassed. I gotta get a lighter shade of Select Tint, because...

OMG, I was hit by a nasty, nasty bug on Sunday afternoon. I probably caught it on the plane, but who knows. All I know is that it sucks something awful, and I really wish it would go away. I feel miserable, incredibly groggy and sleepy all-freaking-day-long, and whiny! I think my boyfriend is on the...

After we got settled into our hotel yesterday afternoon, I did this bright look. I figured since most of the day was gone, I wouldn't have to worry about it melting off. I'll use today to determine just how much makeup I can wear and tolerate with the humidity and high heat!

You will need the...
