Nails: Essie Sew Psyched

Essie Sew Psyched is an army green color with light silver shimmer. I got many compliments – some wanting to know what the color was and where to get it! You know how there are two different types of compliments – ones that are just that, a nice gesture, and others that say something because they want to have it themselves? Really, I love either kind :-) Still…there was one or two people who definitely don’t care for the kakhi/army colors.

Look: Little Miss Perfect

As soon as I swatched my new High Voltage shadows, there was one that caught my eye right off the bat. It’s name: Little Miss Perfect. It was a color I almost didn’t order, but am sooooo glad I did! It’s a powder blue with an embedded yellow/gold. So interesting! The yellow really comes out when it is applied wet. Yay for a Bruin eyeshadow!!! :-P

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: NARS Eyeshadow Primer (primer), High Voltage Little Miss Perfect wet (whole lid), Sugarpill Magpie wet (outer lid), Sugarpill Stella (crease), Makeup Store Goldglow (highlight), Sugarpill Stella wet (liner), UD 24/7 Binge (waterline), MAC Haute & Naughty mascara
  • Cheeks: Chanel Rose Temptation JC
  • Lips: MAC Baby Blooms lipgloss

Look: Red Eye

Have you ever tried wearing red eyeshadow? I’m sure your answer is probably no, unless you’re a makeup junkie like me. Red eyeshadow is just not a color that is out on the market really…I think it’s something about the red dye that is typically used not being safe for the delicate eye area. Thank goodness Sugarpill fixed that nonsense!!! This is a red that does not turn pink or orange, nor does it fade. And what to pair better with a bold red eye than black-based maroon pigments that end up looking…black :-)

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: NARS Eyeshadow Primer (primer), Sugarpill Love + (whole lid), Fyrinnae Fyre & Ice (outer & upper lid), MAC Bloodline pigment (crease), Sugarpill Dollipop (above crease), Sugarpill Tako (highlight), Bobbi Brown Black Ink (upper lashline), MAC Smoulder Kohl (waterline), MAC Haute & Naughty mascara
  • Cheeks: MAC Merrily mineralized blush
  • Lips: NARS Scandal lipgloss (lightly), NARS Tripple X lipgloss

I felt so bold and daring, yet confident wearing this look on a random Wednesday at school. You have to be confident when you wear something bold, and then you can pull off anything. No one said anything about it…which either means it did look ok, and typical “Heather”, or they didn’t want to say anything negative, ha! What are your thoughts?

Look: Rainbow Eyes for Halloween

Last night Jason and I went to a small gathering with some friends, and we were not going to dress up. We just really don’t like dressing up for Halloween. However, I’ve always wanted to do rainbow eyeshadow just for fun, and since it was Halloween, what better time to get away with wearing it out of the house?! I did this look using nearly all Sugarpill shadows. The lashes were like feathers on my eyes. This look reminds me of those colorful clown wigs or something :-) I enjoyed wearing it for halloween…what better excuse?! What was even more awesome was that several of the girls at the party loved it and complimented me! Awwww :-)

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: NARS Eyeshadow Primer (primer), (from inner corner to outer corner) Red: Sugarpill Love+, Orange: Sugarpill Flamepoint, Yellow: Sugarpill Buttercupcake, Green: Sugarpill Midori & MAC Sassy Grass, Blue: Sugarpill Afterparty & Sugarpill Royal Sugar, Purple: Sugarpill Poison Plum, Sugarpill Dollipop and Tako (highlights), UD 24/7 Zero liner, MAC #42 Lashes, MAC Haute & Naughty mascara
  • Cheeks: MAC Love Joy Mineralized BPB
  • Lips: MAC Heartless Lipstick, MAC Redd lip pencil
