Natural Makeup: Quick & Easy Browns

My days are all messed up. I thought it was going to be Saturday, so I thought a neutral look would make for a good Saturday post... but no, it's Friday. Had I known that, I would have definitely done something brighter. Boo!  And yeah, the lip combo for...

MAC To the Beach Look: Humid, Shimmermoss, and "Sweet & Punchy"

If you've been collecting MAC for years, you and I both know that we own near-dupes of coming attractions, no matter how pretty the newest, shiniest thing may look. Since MAC To the Beach is out in the UK already, I thought I'd try a...

Bright Makeup: Sky Blues

I got the BLUES! At least, when it comes to the next week... because it's study, study, STUDY! I feel like my focus is off, too, which is very annoying and frustrating. I managed to get through one outline yesterday, and today, I hope to get through another today... and...

Bright Makeup: Yellow, Pink, & Purple

I felt like playing around a bit last night, so I ended up with this at the end of playtime! Thought I'd share :) I normally pair this kind of look with bright pink lips, but I thought I'd try something a little more orange, just for fun, so there are two...

Softer Makeup:  Going Coral -- Once More, With Feeling!

Just a quickie look here... something neutral so I could do some lip swatches! Ironically, this combination of eyeshadows recreates the look I did last week in a way--it's subtler, softer, but the strength of Coral Crepe really seems to keep...

Pret-a-Papier Look: Coral Crepe as a Base

I wore this look to photograph lip swatches from Pret-a-Papier yesterday, but here it is in detail :)  By the by, I prefer the lighter Chromagraphic Pencil on my waterline -- the darker one is a bit too subdued and runs a little yellowish on me.

5-Minute Makeup Look & How to Wear Bright Lipstick

With all of the Summer Season lipsticks we've featured (and the many more to come!), it's only natural to wonder how one can wear some of those vibrant, retina-burning shades. One of my favorite ways (and easiest!) is to pair whatever bright lip...

Guerlain Ombre Perlees -- Matte Eyeshadow

I did this look over the weekend with Guerlain's Ombre Perlees Palette. Even though the shades look like they have a hint of shimmer, they're near-matte, particularly when used over a matte base. This is such a fall look, though, ha!

You will need the...
