UD Baked on the inner half of the lid and inner corner of the eye, POP Beauty Dust Deluxe in Peach on the outer half, UD Flipside blended above the crease, UD Twice Baked blended in the outer v, UD 24/7 Liner in Deviant on the upper lashline, Stila Smudge Stick in Peacock on the lower lashline, UD Half Baked on the browbone and Physician’s Formula 100% Natural Origin Mascara.
I mixed together Wet n Wild Sand Storm lipstick and NYX MegaShine lipgloss in Africa and dabbed it on my lips lightly.

This week my make-up was very simple. I mostly used Chanel Bronze Universal mixed with Bobbi Brown Foundation and Powder. Then I applied one coat MAC Opulash mascara and a natural gloss / By Terry Or d’Rose or YSL Rouge Pur Couture Nr. 24.

TheBalm Insane Jane on the lid, MAC Night Manoevres in the crease and smudged into my upper and lower lashes. Pinch O’Peach on my cheeks and Laugh a Lot on my lips. I wore this most of last week….

I did a neutral eye with bright lips look. I used Tarte Dusk eyeshadow on the lid, Tarte Waitress in the crease and blended up toward the brow bone with Tarte Werewolf in the outer v and smudged along the upper lash line. UD liquid liner in Perversion and winged out. MAC Love Joy Mineralize blush. MAC Refined Deeper Bronze bronzer, and MAC Rebel lipstick. UDPP and Pixie Epoxy as a base. Also Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara.

I am wearing my absolute favorite combo, a purple smokey eye with a coral lip. I use MAC’s lotusland on the lid, with a blend of MAC’s Soft Brown with Fig 1. MAC Shroom as a highlight. Top it off with Purple Dash liner and Opulash Black. Lips are either Lollipop Loving (My favorite lipstick) or Ever Hip topped with Flurry of Fun lipglass. I use the Coralista blush by Benefit for this look, topped with Truth and Light Magically cool powder.

MAC Studio Fix powder in NC44.5
MAC Blot Powder in Dark
Barry M blush in Apricot (No. 5)
MAC Cork lip pencil
Illamasqua Submit lipstick
Illamasqua Test lipstick
MAC Lust lipglass (ever so slightly as usual, I HATE putting on a lot of gloss all over)

My PJ’s and a great clean face with super skin care on it after a mask & putting my eyebrows back on – lost them to chemo and what little is there is really see-through blond.

UD maui wowie on the tearduct and inner lid blended with MAC vainglorious and used lightly as a transition colour in the crease. MAC handwritten in the crease and UD zero deluxe eyeshadow in the outer V. A matte light skin toned colour to highlight.
Barry M natural dazzle bronzer, sleek santorini blush (lightly!) and MAC shroom to highlight.
MAC star nova lustreglass on the lips 🙂

Jealousy Wakes! I had some trouble making it work for me at first (I don’t do greens much) but I am pretty happy with today’s results. I paired it with MAC’s Short Shorts on the lid and the lightest shade from LORAC’s Private Affair palette to highlight. Lips were OCC’s Interlace.

FACE: Maybelline FIT ME liquid and powder in 110, MUFE HD concealer

LIPS: MAC slimshine in bare
EYES: UDPP, MAC sweet and punchy inner lid, satin taupe outer corner and crease, brule as brow highlight, UD eyeliner in corrupt upper lash line only.

As always my b.b.cream of Erborian (I really love it) with MAC peachykeen on cheeks for the face. On the eyes, MUFE #93 on the inner third of the lid, UD Flipside on the middle third and MAC Blue Calm on the outer third and on the crease. For lashes I use Hypnose Doll eyes (the new mascara of Lancome)


A. PINK/PURPLE LOOK: (I saw a makeup artist in Ulta do this look, so thats where i took the idea, minus the purple eyeliner)

1. Tainted in the inner corner (pale pink)
2. Junkshow on the lid (pink)
3. Omen in the crease (purple)
4. midnight 15 as browbone color (off white)
5. Make Up Forever Aqua Eyeliner in Pink on the top
6. Mac Penultimte eyeliner (black) also on the top, but line it so thin that the pink eyeliner still shows.
7. Bottom eyeliner was Stila’s waterproof liquid eyeliner (similar to makeup forever’s) in Purple.
8. Mascara was from Benefit “Too Real” – I got this as a sample from sephora (rewards points) ANd i like it, i would prob buy it.
9. Primer was urban decay primer potion in sin.
10. Lips: one of those duochrome clear lipglosses from inglot. mine is #541 Its like a clear, bluey, green color but goes on bluey/pinkish.
**And I wore this look out to the mall and out to eat


1. Chase on the lid
2. Omen on the crease
3. Browbone color was a tad of midnight 15.
4. Penultimate eyeliner from mac was used
5. A tad of purple stila liquid eyeliner on bottom lid
6. Same Benefit “Too Real” mascara
7 Same inglot lipgloss
**I wore this to work. I am brown skinned so the purple OMEN eyeshadow did not stand out so much like most of my other eyeshadows do, so it was very wearable for work.

C. ALL Neutral Look

1. Chase on the lid
2. Deeper in the crease
3. Midnight 15 as browbone color
4. EYeliner was same MAC penultimate eyeliner on top and bottom lid
5. Same Benefit mascara sample
6. lips: same inglot lipgloss, and when that wore off and i wanted a little more color i would put on MAC’s Style Curve (yeah, still have a little bit of that left).
