I wore a very neutral eye… white on the whole eye, and a light brown in the crease, black eyeliner, a lot of mascara, white on lower waterline. Then on the cheeks I wore Style blush, and on the lips Crosswires l/s with Fulfilled plushglass on top. It’s such a pretty combination that flatters me well I think!

Smokey eyes in traditional Black/Grey or Purple or Green. Rally play up my eyes and turn them into centre of attention =)

I used a tip from a magazine and put a soft greige/taupe (I used the dark part in Clinique’s Maple Blossom) from lash line to above crease, then a golden color on the movable lid (i used a coppery gold from the Body Shop). I also lined with a golden color. Light part of Maple Blossom for highlight.

i love the sound of this. I am lemming the Maple Blossom shadow, but it seems to be sold out all around me. I know I could get it online, but I don’t wanna pay for shipping 😛

Blue/grey smokey look! My favorite (MAC should re-release this) Softwash Grey pigment, Knight e/s, Top Knot e/s and Vellum e/s for highlighting.. For cheeks I wore Nars Orgasm and Redhead MSF and finish the look with Shy Girl Cremesheen lipstick and Pastel Emotion lipglass.

a simple natural look : naked lunch e/s, patina e/s, Satin Taupe e/s and Shroom e/s as a highlighter
For cheeks Redhead msf (I used the two middle stripes) and my new Clutch pink Dior gloss

Ooh, there are a few looks that I’ve done recently that I’ve really loved. I bought Chrome Yellow recently, so I’ve been enjoying experimenting with it.

I’ve worn Painterley paint pot as base, Chrome Yellow on the lid, Coppering in crease, Expensive Pink mid-lid-crease overlaying Coppering, then some more Chrome Yellow going a little over the Expensive Pink to blend, with Shroom to highlight.

I also did a similar look but with aqua and turquoise – Painterly paint pot as base, Chrome Yellow on lid, bright turquoise (Urban Decay deluxe eyeshadow in Peace) on crease, Aquadisiac mid-lid to crease overlaying UD Peace, then a little Chrome Yellow over the Aquadisiac to blend and Shroom to highlight.

Smokey warm chocolate eyes: shroom allover eye, sable all over lid and blended upwards, the body shop eye colour in chocolate patted on the outer lid and dusted on the rest of the lid to darken sable, and the dark brown side of the MAC suite array duo in Sweet Liason. Black liner smoked out with sable and the dark brown from Sweet Liason, black MAC mascara x, fill, color, and shape brows with a dark brown brow pencil. A little pit of matte peachy blush (try Peachykeen) on the apples of the cheeks blended to the temples, and to complement my dark eyes, a glossy lip balm that leaves a light pink tint on my lips. THIS is my fave look to do!!

I haven’t worn eyeshadow recently so my go-to look would be:

Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Zero on upper and lower lashline.
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Yeyo on inner corner of eyes.
Black mascara on my curled eyelashes.
NARS Deep Throat blush on the apples of my cheeks.
Light Flush MSF for highlight around my face.
Strayin’ Lipstick lightly dabbed on lips, topped off with BeneFit Silky-Finish lipstick in Jing-A-Ling, and Sweet Strawberry lipglass on top.

With eyeshadow, the last complete look would be using shades from Diro’s quint palettes in both Incognito and Iridescent Leather for a slightly matte and shimmery neutral look that is not over the top. I used Sunbasque blush on my cheeks, and for my lips I applied Shy Girl lipstick topped off with Sweet Strawberry lipglass.

i went out on friday night with a bunch of friends after a stressful week at school. so i decided to go with something light coloured.

– MAC Bare Study p/p: over lid
– MAC Fairylite pigment: inner half of lid (blend with…)
– MAC Bell Bottom Blue pigment: lightly on outer half of lid + crease
– L’Oreal liquid eyeliner in black: upper lid only
– Majolica Majorca pencil liner in black: waterline
– White eyeliner: inner tear duct (blend up into fairylite)
– Maybelline Define-A-Lash mascara
– The Body Shop Shimmer Lip Balm in Rich Plum

It would have to be something I wore today and it’s a nice cranberry warm eyeshadow with browns and some pinks. And also a nice light flush on the cheek (Redhead MSF) and just a nice nude lip.

WOOPS, I should mention that the dark brown from Sweet Liason goes in the crease, and the black liner is on the top and bottom lash lines getting thicker and thicker more towards the outer eyes. 😉

Can anyone recommend a good white eyeliner? I’ve been let down in the past! I’d appreciate it! Thanks!

I’m really liking today’s look – smokey brown on the lids, with Star Violet (my new favourite) in the crease, and a white-gold highlighter. Thin line of liquid liner on the top lid, and pink-y lip gloss.
Nice and subtle, and lends itself well to contouring and such, since it looks nice and simple.

I was convinced for the longest time that I could not wear neutrals because they washed me out [NW45], but through MACs lovely variety of colors, I’ve found the joy in neutrality 😀

Most recently my favorite looks has been:

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
MAC Fawntastic CCB for a pearly beige base
MAC Patina all over the eye
MAC Folie blended into the crease
MAC Rice Paper for hi lite
HiP Cream liner in black
ULTA Lash Primer
DiorShow Mascara Black Out

MAC Brunette MSF
MAC Raizin Blush

MAC Cream Sheen Gloss in Looks Like Sin

yesterday I wore a glowy face look and neutral eyes.
Face: (Mostly MAC, otherwise stated..)
MUFE 5 Concealer Palette
Select Moisture Cover Concealer (NW20)
NARS Oil-free liquid foundation (Fiji)
Creme Color Base (Pearl) – Highlight
Rich Metal Collection Highlighter (Female) – Highlight
FAFI Collection Iridescent Pressed Powder (Verve-acious) – Highlight
Powder Blush (Cubic)
MSFN (Light Medium)

And for thee eyes.. 🙂
Paint Pot (Painterly)
Eye Kohl (Fascinating) – Highlight for Brow Bone
Brow Shader (Ivory/Walnut) – Eyebrows and for Eyeshadow.. Ivory all over the lid, and Walnut in the crease.
PlushLash Mascara (Black)

My favorite look

Oh! I loved yesterday’s eyeshadow. I took Bloody Mary hot pink shadow and put it all over my lid. Then I took the sparkly blue color from the Kat Von D Metal Orchestra palette and put it in the crease. Then I took the sparkly white from the same palette and put on my browbone, then blended everything. I wore black eyeliner, Urban Decay 24/7 Zero, on the top lashline, then I took blue eyeliner, Urban Decay 24/7 Electric, and put it on my waterline.

It looked so gorgeous! I’ll definitely do that again.

Yesterday I wore a Hello Kitty look that I loved!!
I used the Too Dolly quad- Yogurt all over the lid up to the brow and in the inner corners, then Romping on the outer 3/4th of the lid. The I put Stately black in the crease and outer V, and Too Dolly on my lower lashline. I wore it with Fun and Games blush and Sweet Strawberry l/g! It looked really cute!

Today I am wearing a nude-neutral eye make up with electric blue liner in half of my lower lashes and brown in my upper. Dermablend under eye concealer. Revlon colorstay for combination skin on top of Rimmel face primer. Costal Scents color correctors, Nars super Orgasm and Rimmel Angel lipstick. Black mascara from Loreal tubular lashes. This is a look that I really like, it looks fresh and subtle at the same time. I will like to win the orange blush from the Maharani collection.

My favorite look that I just wore..

MAC Shimmersand shadestick
MAC Pink Freeze e/s
MAC Hepcat e/s
MAC Carbon e/s
Victoria Secret Very Sexy gel eyeliner (In my signature ‘wing’ form)
MAC Ebony eye khol
MAC Pro Lash mascara
MAC Pretty Please lipstick
Some random wetandwild hardening clear lipgloss over it
Chanel soft beige blush
MAC Soft and Gentle mineralized skinfinish

That’s a rough list basically. Pink Freeze is going to be a really big spring color for me, kind of going ahead of the Sugarsweet collection and I really think Frosts are going to be much better for spring. Usually if I don’t wear this then I switch it up with Electra e/s with Carbon.

I love Metal-X shadows and have really been enjoying them lately! They work perfectly well for me when worn over Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows and UDPP…I’m talking 6+ hours of wear.

base: UDPP all over lid to brow
2nd base: Benefit Skinny Jeans CCS all over lid to crease
Color: Metal-X in Verdigris all over lid, concentrated color at lashline. Blend lightly along lower lashline.
Metal-X in Fusion Gold to highlight, blended into Verdigris. Touch Fusion Gold lightly into inner corners of eyes.
Liner: Kohl Power in Mystery
add mascara and ta-da!

Keep the rest of the face simple and un-sparkly. Wear with nude pink lips (like Florabudance l/g) and subtle mauve blush.

Im in love with black dramatic winged liner, dramatic lashes, Tippy BPB from HK, and Strayin l/p with Nice Kitty l/g both from HK. I love this look. Ive been doing variations on it since I got my HK stuff. The BPBs are the bomb.

I post a new look almost everyday on my blog. I sent you a Guest Look picture a while ago, but I know you’re busy! Thanks for all that you do!

My new look: just clean and simple

No eyeshadow or liner (let natural coloring shine instead)
Auburgine Dr. Hauschka Volume mascara on lashes
MAC StudioSculpt Foundation on face (combination of NW 20 and NW 25) with no concealer (don’t need it; foundation covers really well, especially darkness under the eyes)
Combination of MAC Mineralize Blushes Love Joy and Dainty on cheeks
Boy Bait MAC Cremesheen Glass on lips

Eyes: pink (on inner) and brown (on outer).
