Look – Experiment with Purple & Green

I'm feeling encouraged by yesterday's look post (because I wasn't sure if I wanted to post this since it was more experimental than anything else), so I wanted to share with you a look I attempted a week or so ago. I wanted to try a color combination I hadn't done before (it's not always easy to...

Look – Yellow & Purple Style Warrior Look

Here's a MAC Style Warrior look! I did false eyelashes again (hey, when you've spent four years attempting without success, and you can manage it... you keep trying!), but I used knockoff #7s instead, and they were just too long, IMO. I ended up removing them, because the length was a bit...

Look – A Rose Romance Soft Purples

To compensate for the site being down intermittently, here's a Rose Romance look I did yesterday. I think it's the first time I've worn eyeshadow in two weeks ore more! I just always run out of time and end up going with a minimal to no makeup face these days. I'm working on it, though!

You will...

Look – MAC Sugarsweet Eye with Red Velvet

Here's my Sugarsweet look from yesterday! :) I used Red Velvet as I mentioned I probably would do, and to be honest, I wasn't loving it. I felt like Red Velvet tended to eat color rather than amplify it. For those interested, Red Velvet and Dear Cupcake feel like virtually the same color; when I...

I actually really liked how this turned out -- it's been a minute since I've been super satisfied with how a makeup look has come out, and I'm pretty pleased with this one! I didn't think it would work when I started, but it definitely came together. Even Perfect Topping gave...

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...
