Bright Makeup: Fuchsia & Purple

I mentioned last look that the next one would definitely have some color, and I'd say this one certainly does!

I thought I'd show a really cool, pale pink kind of lip with this look (I'm a bit warm-toned for it, IMO, but my boyfriend adores the color -- go figure), but also how a brighter pink lip...

Holiday Makeup: Office Party Neutrals

So here's a tip about using all matte eyeshadows (or matte products in general): make sure you're exfoliated and well-moisturized. My eyelids were a touch dry on the inner lid, and the mattes really enhanced that dryness. The same thing is true if you have drier skin and opt for a matte finish...

Holiday Makeup: Violets and Purples

I did this look for fun before I took a shower on Sunday, and in my hurry, I forgot to take close-ups of the eyes/lips, so there's just a couple of full-face photos, but hopefully you get the idea :)

I wanted to use Illamasqua's Static pure pigment, since it sure looks pretty, but I was so not...

Look – Orange, Pink, and Purple for Hello Kitty Event

It's been awhile since I've posted a look, yeah? The reason behind that is I've really been trying to get my skin back into shape ever since it went wacko after using Smashbox Photofinish Primer. From around July or August of '08, I had amazing, clear skin for the first time in my life. Around...

Look – Blue Zone Eyeshadow Duo Periwinkle and Lavender

As promised, I got un-lazy and actually did some REAL makeup. After using the Blue Zone eyeshadow duo, I doubt I'll be getting any more of the duos. I'm not particularly in love with this one - I think I'd be better off branching off and finding a lavender from another brand. :(

You will need the...

Look – I’m “Wild ‘Bout You” for Fall

Yesterday, I wanted to see how my new cut would look natural aka no styling required. I was pretty pleased with the results -- it's very much the same, but it doesn't have the same level of volume, shine, or texture. But it still works, and it doesn't HAVE to be styled, which is what is important. I...
