I have 2 looks that I’ve done this week and I’m trying to decide which one to wear to a True Blood watch party this Sunday! Both are based off of Linda Mason’s book “Eye Candy”.


Option #1 consists of a lot of Too Faced (the big holiday palette), NARS (the bright pink), and MUFE (the yellow), and Urban Decay liners.

Option #2 consists of a mixture of Urban Decay Liners and a MAC cream blush on the lid (to achieve a champagne-y coral), NARS(again, the bright pink and it’s actually a blusher), and Urban Decay liners.

I am planning on doing a lavender-ish lip and a whole mess of glitter. Maybe even colored brows (oooo! An ombre brow like Queen of Blending did)!

Feedback is welcome and appreciated. I can get more specific product-wise if anyone’s curious. πŸ˜€

For the eyes, Mac’s Short-Shorts all over the lid with Mac’s Swell baby and Ben Nye’s Amethyst in the crease. (pretty almost bridal look). Top that off with Mac’s Plum Reserve Zoom lash. Cheeks I have put Mac’s My Paradise concentrated on the back cheekbones. Top off the look with Mac’s Hibiscus lipstick. The result- A very summery bright day to night look. πŸ˜€

I only wore makeup twice last week, and boring neutrals both times. I guess my favorite of them was the lighter shade of Hourglass Gypsy on inner 2/3 of lid, the darker shade on the outer 2/3 (making them overlap in the middle), MAC Handwritten in the crease and under the eye, lighter shade of Gypsy to highligt. MAC Secret Blush BPB and a bit of Guerlain Terra Inca Sublime Radiant Powder for a nice glow. Chanel Evasion on lips (which didn’t go with the rest of the look at all). Boring, easy and kinda meh.

Today i’m wearing a look that on top lid: yellow to pink to orange and on lower lid a line of teal to blue to dark green. And with MAC Honey Flower lipstick and MAC roman holidays Dazzleglass on top (those two go amazingly well together !)

Seafoam and silver colors from Surf The Ocean with liquid liner, Amazon Princess blush and have rediscovered my desire for Honeylove lipstick

Skin: I made a tinted moisturizer using my Clinique moisturizer and MAC NW45 spf select liquid foundation.

Eyes: MAC Parrot-turquoise like electric eel (discontinued)on lid and Blooz (intense navy) eyeliner on top and waterline. Great Lash Mascara in very black

Cheeks: NYX Mosaic blush, Love (looks like NARS taj mahal)

Lips: MAC Touch with Overindulgence Cremesheen on top!

MAC Gilded White Powerpoint Liner in the inner corner
MAC All That Glitters on the first half of the lid
MAC Soba on the other half and in the crease
Urban Decay YDK on outer v and crease

Cheek: Benefit Posietint

Lips: Posietint + Lancome Juicy Tube Smoothie in Fifth Avenue Frosting (Think it was LE as I bought it with 7 others in a 1/2 size Holiday set a while back)

Sounds boring, I’m sure, as I’ve post this before but it really is a look I like…MAC Dalliance all over the lid and Centre Stage in the outer corner and crease as well as under my lower lashes. Black liner. TheBalm Down Boy blush and MAC Capricious on my lips.

I have been very partial to the whole no make up make up look due to the whether conditions it works best for me. I have been using Revlon Color Stay Aqua, Smashbox Softlights in Lens & Dusk. Smashbox Hyperlash. And MAC in Naked Lunch for a highlight. Either EOS lipshere in lemon drop for the lips or Smashbox in Peep

Hmmm. It’s close between my two Jealousy Wakes-involving looks, but I think I prefer today’s because of the lip combo.
For eyes, I’m wearing Sugarpill Absinthe on the lid–first wet, then patted on dry on top, blended into Lucky Green above the crease. I blended Jealousy Wakes in the crease, applied Surf U.S.A. on the lower lashline. Lastly, I used Sugar Skull from Kat Von D’s Truth palette on the very inner corners and followed up with mascara.
On the lips, I’m wearing Benefit Lady’s Choice with MAC Evolution Revolution on top.

I just got a yaby order in and I loved this look I did with some of the colours, I’ll give descriptions as there aren’t too many yaby swatches ANYWHERE πŸ™
LID yaby dragonfruit pearl paint (a muted shimmery hot pink)
CREASE sugarpill poison plum blended up with yaby sakura (satiny lilac)
OUTER V mac shadowy lady and pulled down to the edge of the lower lashline
LOWER LASHLINE yaby carbon paper (intense deep navy)
INNER CORNER yaby platinum pearl paint (metalic silver)

I used my new Stila Twig in the crease, NYX Salmon Pearl and Sunshine e/s on the lid, and Wet n Wild dark matte purple (Lust palette) in the outer v. I wore it to go see my friend and her new baby! I highly recommend Twig. It’s awesome!

Eyes: Jealousy Wakes on the lid, Greensmoke in my crease and Humid darkening up my outer v. On my lower lashline I have Float on By and then Jealousy Wakes over that.
Cheeks: Bit of Physician’s Formula bronzer and then NARS Orgasm over.
Lips: Nothing yet. ^^;;

Today I have: a revlon illumenance quad in va va va bloom (the gold colour) as a base, then stila’s chiffon on my lid, luster in the crease, brule as my highlight, and pacific on my lower lash line.
on my cheeks I have the elf contouring/blush duo and pixi’s energy blush in naturally sunny, nothing on my lips, !

I have Buxom’s Shih Tzu (a metallic Granny Smith apple shade) on the inner corner of my lid, blended out into Jealousy Wakes (applied wet) on the rest of the lid and into the crease. I used UD’s Deviant to closely line my upper lashes, and put a tiny bit of UD’s Heavy Metal glitter liner on the outer lashline. A bit of UD’s Baked gold shadow to highlight the inner corner, and UD’s Midnight Cowboy on the lower lashline and waterline finished it up…Hourglass’ Film Noir mascara, and ready to go.

Oh, and the tiniest smidgen of MAC Caqui on my lips. I love the coral, and just a little of it leaves a nice stain.

When you don’t want to line the bottom lash line in a color, but still want a little something, try Midnight Cowboy (not the powder…the liner or 24/7 shadow pencil). On pale me, it brightens without looking ostentatious…I think on a darker-skinned girl it’d just look luminous.

I just did one, and it was neutral-smoky eyes (beige, bronze, and dark brown from Wet n Wild Vanity palette, MAC Patina), lightly bronzed contours (two NYC blushable crΓ¨me sticks in Urban Spice and Pink Flash as well as Benefit Moon Beam and LΓ’ncome Mandarin Sky), and plummy-stained lips (Revlon’s stains–Midnight at the center blended into Instinct). It didn’t clash with my new, purple hair, thankfully, and was really pretty!

I’ve been playing with stuff from the blogger’s collection. Sonoran Rain is GORGEOUS!!! I wore it out today and just had some eyeliner and mascara on. Nitro:licious 2046 is absolutely perfect over Russian Red! I swatched Jealousy Wakes but haven’t had a chance to put a look together yet but I love it! Great job Christine!!!

MAC: French Quarter, Top of the Posh, Uzuki Bean, Moshi Moshi, So Sweet So Easy
Fairy Drops mascara!
Physician’s Formula Healthy Wear tinted moisturizer
Buxom Lip Polish in Katie

Lucky Green on inner 1/2 of lid, Jealousy Wakes on outer 1/2 of lid and crease, Juxt as highlighter under brow and inner corner, Covet liner on top and bottom lashline, Zero on waterline, Inimitable Intense mascara.

I loved the look I used today:
Face: Fit in 110 powder by maybelline
Cheeks: NYX bronzer stick in merengue flush with Benefit’s coralista over it.
Lips: Mac viva glam lipstick in cyndi
Eyes: UDPP, UD in naked all over the crease, virgin on the brow bone, I applied darkhorse first from the middle to the outer lid, half baked in the inner lid then overlayed sidecar to bring the two together. I applied Mac blue noon on the upper lash line. Maybelline falsies mascara.

Guerlain Terre Indigo eyeshadow in orange (inner eye and crease) and lightest brown (on the rest of my lid). Guerlain Terre Inca sublime radiant powder and Buxom lipgloss in a pale beige color.

Lazy day for me: SPF, BB Cream topped with MAC MSF natural, defined brows, MAC Rubenesque, MAX Factor Dawning Gold Duo as highlight and crease color (my everyday combination), MAC Blacktrack, MAX Factor False Lash Effect, Contoured cheeks, topped with NARS Luster blush, which is my all time favorite blush. On my lips I have L’Oreal Nutri Shine in Golden Vanilla (great dupe for the Dior Addict). This is what I put on almost every single day since it really complements my skintone, plus it’s so easy to put on.

I did a beautiful and simple eye with Laura Mercier Black Karat, lined with the black Tarte EmphasEyes liner and Ultraflesh Panthera mascara (I love saying “Panthera Mascara, lol). On cheeks: Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface for a very pale pink cheek and bright red lips with MUFE Moulin Rouge lipstick and MUFE Lab Shine gloss in S8. πŸ™‚

I finally used my Stila Fiji travel (ive only had it forever now lol) i took the the lightest silver and put it in on the inner 1/4, then i used the silver blue the rest of the lid. I took the darkest blue to on the outer corner into the crease. I used my milani jungle green eyeliner and put the green in the pallete on top of the liner and i used the green to line the lower lash as well.

Maybelline Eyestudio Neutral Liaisons cream eyeshadow with Urban Decay Lust (purple) eyeliner. The purple against the neutrals really popped.

CLEAN, MODERN PIN-UP: I just purchased Kitten, by Stila, and I can’t stop wearing it. Today my work look had kitten all over the lid and brow bone with a dark smudge of MAC carbon on the outer edge. I Lined with MUFE Aqua liner 14, a black liquid with pink micro glitter(luv it!!),on the top lid. I paired it with MAC See Sheer lipstick and Subculture pencil. I wore MAC Plush lash, but I would love some mascara suggestions, because I’m always in the market for a goodie. Next weeks looks will feature Jealously Wakes, come on Mr. Postman!

On my eyes, MAC Peek-at-You all over the lid w/ Sexpectations in the crease, Benefit High Brow, UD 24/7 Eye Pencil in Bourbon and Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black Honey. On my cheeks, Benefit Dallas and theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer. On my lips, NARS Dolce Vita Lipstick. πŸ™‚

Since it is summer I am going lighter on the foundation and powder and using a tinted moisturizer. For blush I went light pink with Feather Dollskin Cheek by Tarina Tarantino and did a nude lip. I pulled out Hocus Pocus and swept it over the lids while fading out to the crease and then used Shroom on the browbone down into the crease. A little UD 24/7 Bourbon blended out and the upper and lower lash line with El Dorado on the water line and I was out the door after a little mascara. About a 5 minute face. Loves.

Today I wore Hocus Pocus on the lid with Woodwinked patted on top (omg gorgeous taupey goodness!), Jealousy Wakes in crease w/some Carbon in the outer v. Blacktrack to line upper lashline, MUFE eye pencil in 0L on waterline, and MUFE Smoky Lash mascara. I used Gold Go Lightly for a light bronzer & Pearl Sunshine bp on cheeks. And for lips, The Faerie Glen lipstick with Boy Bait gloss on top. πŸ™‚

UD all the way!

Eyes: UDPP, Verve on inner third and tear duct, Painkiller in the middle, Radium on outer third, all well blended into each other. Revlon Matte shadow in Vintage Lace underneath the brow bone. Stila Smudge Pot gel liner in Black applied on both inner rims with a short, sharp angled brush. Zero liner smudged along both lash lines and Covergirl Waterproof NatureLuxe mascara.

Face: NYC Loose Powder in Naturally Beige applied with a Sonia Kashuk powder brush and Stila Convertible Color in Camellia as a cream bronzer for contouring!

Lips: UD Lip Junkie lipgloss in Wallflower

A favorite look this week was a new eye look I wore to dinner tonight!

Face: MAC Studio Moisture Tint, MAC mineralize blush in LoveJoy then Conjure Up focused on the apples of my cheek

Eyes: UDPP, MAC Groundwork pp, MAC eyeshadow in Exspensive Pink on the lid and Fig 1 in the crease. Fig 1 faded more then I wanted it to but I may have to adjust the application. Either way it was a beautiful look

Lips: nothing
