Uhm Mostly Im Always on Livejournal EyeshadowSluts and Mac cosmetics For Looks 🙂
And Im forever adapting looks from xsparkage.com and doedeere.

Anything that inspires me really.

I actually keep my makeup professional and simple almost all of the time. I usually try new looks when I just buy new makeup and try to encorporate it into my collection. While I like flashy looks on other people, I don’t think it suits my style, personality, or profession to do much beyond neutrals or pinks haha! I guess I do a smokey eye every now and then 🙂

Guilting myself into using different products I own. I tell myself that I’m throwing money away and that there’s people who never get to even step foot at Sephora and I’m just letting products collect dust. 😉

I look through my “look folder”. When I’m surfing the net and I see a look that I really like, I’d usually save the picture in my folder. so when I’m out of ideas, I look at those pictures!

Sometimes I’ll also create looks based on a particular eyeshadow or eyeliner that I really wanna wear.

Sometimes I take an eyeshadow I haven’t worn for a while and try it on the back of my hand with other colours to get some new colour combinations. I also get ideas for new looks from make-up sites and tutorials. When I’m buying something new from the Mac shop, I sometimes like to ask a sales advisor for colour combination suggestions, as they often come up with combinations I haven’t thought of.
