Look – Beige Nudes with Deep Blues

This look is from yesterday :) It's pretty simple, and I had originally intended to wear one of Colour Ready's bright lipsticks with it, but it definitely did *not* look good with a super bright lip. I can't figure out why the cheeks stand out so much in pictures, because they SO didn't in real...

Look – Soft Neutrals for Thanksgiving

I did this look for Thanksgiving -- something natural and simple, but still noticeable :) I did my makeup today for the first time since Thanksgiving, and it was horrible and felt SO, SO very unnatural.  I was like, "Wow!  Talk about rusty!"  By the by, I used Too Faced's Shadow Insurance for the...

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...

Can you believe this look is from mid-November?! I haven't had the time to do any makeup in at least a week, if not two. It's been deadline after deadline these past two weeks with projects, papers, and finals for me. Not even close to being done yet--still three finals to go! My deepest...

Look – Crushed Bougainvillea Stars!

Reallyyy quick look I did running out the door to school last night. I originally was just going to try Crushed Bougainvillea as a lip stain, but ah, such is life. Got a little carried away! More to show you what things look like than a real look, I'd say. (Oh, and I didn't like how the cheeks...

Look – Go Shopping in Neutrals but Pop with Teal

On Monday, I took my little sister back to school shopping, and since I was in a shopping mood myself, I figured I'd sneak a few peeks while I was with her. When I shop for clothes, I've learned that a neutral look is best. I like to coordinate colors with my outfit, and if they clash, it drives me...

Look – Soft Neutrals and Browns

After yesterday's experimentation, this is my actual look for the day. Sometimes it's fun just to have, well, fun with makeup - to be able to try out things and combinations that are gloriously over the top. Obviously, this is pre-hair cut!

You will need the following...

  • Eyes: Copperbeam pigment...
