Duochromes + Jealousy Wakes Look

I was just playing around, and I wasn't sure if I was going to post this, but some reader encouragement helped :) After seeing several readers mention Vex on yesterday's post about Bare Escentual's Urban Nature, I figured I'd try it. And then I just couldn't help...

Look: Lady Gaga Bad Romance Makeup Inspiration

I was watching Lady Gaga's Bad Romance Music Video yesterday, and I felt a little inspired by the bold makeup she's wearing around the four minute mark. At first, I thought she was wearing this look while dancing a bit, but I think the looks are different--the one she wears while dancing (also...

Look – Chilly Grays and Blues

Chilly look for a chilly day! For the past few days, it has definitely felt like fall! It's really weird, because it was hot and summery like usual, then BAM! cool, windy days.

Looks – How to Wear Blue Without Going Over the Top!

Quick little look! Thought I'd try a look that incorporates blue but in a subtler way for those who are a little afraid of going all-out in the blue department. The lips took it from subtle to more, though--so opt for nude or light pink lips for a truly subtle look!

It's my Dad's birthday (Happy...

Looks – Naughty Nauticals Purple & Blue with Lark About

Quick look using Naughty Nauticals stuff, but I wasn't satisfied with how it came out! The cool duochrome nature of Lark About & Stars 'N Rockets is SO awesome, but it didn't capture whatsoever in the photos. For some reason, I don't any cool pink lipsticks (?!), or at least I couldn't find any,...

Looks – Experiment in Black and Blue

This is from last night, where I was just playing around with makeup in order to avoid studying. :) I was trying to do something super over-the-top, and when it all finished, I was like, "You know, I could see myself wearing this out!" Not for everyday of course, but you never know!

I used...
