Look: My #1 Favorite

No kidding, I think I’ve worn this exact look like 10 times already! I love it so much. It’s sparkly, duochrome, shiny, bold, and very ME! I have so much makeup, that it is rare for me to do the same look even twice with the same shadows. Sure, I do the same types of gradients or color combos, but rarely with the exact same products. This is my exception. The shadow part is seemingly easy, because it’s basically 2 colors with a highlight. However, foiling loose shadows is challenging for me – especially at the top where I need it to blend out and not have a harsh line. This time, I got it right!

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Primer, MUFE Star Powder #955 (applied wet to lid), Meow Sardonic (applied wet to crease & above crease), Sugarpill Lumi (highlight), MUFE Aqualine 0L (upper lashline), MAC Undercurrent Pearlglide liner (upper lashline over black), Guerlain Loose Eye Kohl #3 Blue (waterline), MAC Haute & Naughty mascara
  • Cheeks: MAC Sun & Moon Mineralize blush
  • Lips: Chanel Glossimer #122

Look: Blurple

I believe most of these colors are from the MAC Liberty of London collection, which was a while ago. I’m totally loving this blue and purple blending together :-)

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: UDPP Eden (primer), Mac Suave Intentions (inner lid), MAC Satellite Dreams (middle lid), MAC Contrast (outer lid & crease), MAC Almond Icing (highlight), MAC Mystery Kohl Power (upper lashline), UD 24/7 Binge (lower lashline), Chanel Inimitable mascara
  • Cheeks: MAC Azalea Blossom
  • Lips: MAC English Accents lipglass

Swatches & Review: High Voltage Lip Whips

High Voltage Cosmetics makes more than just eyeshadows. These are lip whips: very opaque glosses in a squeeze tube. They have a slight mint scent and are non-sticky. I love that a little bit goes a long way with these – you really have to apply them with a lip brush (especially the darker shades). The colors are gorgeous and the formula is so silky smooth. Sadly, her ingredient supplier has discontinued some of the key ingredients in these, so Jasmine will be phasing these out. But not to worry! She has several left, and she is always creating new things that I cannot wait to try. Ok, on to the swatches! (Sorry for the messy towel background…that was my swatching towel, and some pigments got on it.)

Top Row: Talk Talk, Slow Jam, Life of the Party
Bottom Row: Little Misfit, Kashmir, Sour Candy

  • Eyes: NARS Eyeshadow Primer, MAC Blue-Brown pigment (inner & middle lid), MAC Teal pigment (crease & above crease), MAC Dark Blue Green pigment (crease), MAC White Gold pigment (highlight), MAC Mystery Kohl Power, MAC Opulash
  • Cheeks: Bobbi Brown Nectar Shimmer Brick + MAC Marine Life highlight powder

Look: Ode to Brian Kelly

I love seeing looks that inspire me or ones that I love so much that I just MUST recreate. This look is based off of the ever-so-talented Brian Kelly (aka Cosmetic Viking) Look. I love his looks (and I really love his tweets!). Sadly, this isn’t a 100% complete look (since I didn’t do lips), but I really liked how it came out. There is NO GREEN used in this look! I know, right?! It’s all that wonderful yellow and blue blended together. Yellow + Blue = Green…go figure haha! This is another Sugarpill exclusive!

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Primer, MAC Painterly PP (base), Sugarpill Buttercupcake (lid), Sugarpill Afterparty (crease & above), Sugarpill Tako (highlight), MUFE 0L Aqua Liner (upper lashline), UD 24/7 Flipside (waterline), MUFE Smokey Lash mascara
  • Cheeks: MAC The Perfect Cheek
  • Lips: au natural (aka nothing!)

Look: Anti V-Day?

To make myself clear, I will never be anti V-day (Valentine’s Day). How could I?! It’s my birthday!!! I understand why some people are, but I definitely consider myself lucky…even if I didn’t have a Valentine growing up, I still felt special because it was my birthday. My dad would get me, my sister, and my mom corsages to wear for the day, we’d go out to dinner (my choice), and I would always be my parents’ special Valentine :-) My mom likes to tell the story that I didn’t understand that the class wasn’t having a party on Valentine’s Day for me/my birthday until I was like 6 (whoops! hahaha). Well now that I’m married, I have a Valentine for life, and couldn’t be happier about that.

So now the reason for this title…GlamourDollsEyes is having a contest on Facebook for the best “Anti V-Day” Look. So this is going to be my entry. When I saw this contest, I knew this was the look I needed to enter…it’s really kinda anti-me. Sorta like my alter ego…bright eyes, bold lip, tossed hair, a little sad…a bad-girl kind of look for me. ;-) I do not yet have any Glamourdolleyes eyeshadows, but I am dying to try some!!

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Primer, MAC Painterly PP (base), Sugarpill Buttercupcake (bottom middle of lid), Sugarpill Flamepoint (crease), Sugarpill Love+ (above crease), Sugarpill Poison Plum (outer lid & lower lashline), Sugarpill Dollipop (brow bone & lower lashline), Sugarpill Tako (highlight), MUFE Aqua Eyes 0L liner (upper lashline & waterline), MUFE Smokeylash mascara
  • Cheeks: MAC Briar Rose Beauty Powder Blush
  • Lips: Fyrinnae Meerkat (loose shadow mixed with MAC clear lipglass)

Nails: The Make Up Store Marcus

Oh lawd I cannot wait until my nails look like this again ;-) This polish holds a special place in my ♥. I got it while I was in Costa Rica in August at this place called the Makeup Store. So many polishes there…but I tried to only pick up “unique” colors that I didn’t already have. I’m a total sucker for Tiffany blues, so I picked up this teal/turquoise/aqua color called Marcus as one of the two that I got (yes, I only got two…are you proud?).

Now it just so happens that THIS color matched perfectly to the color that my friend’s Costa Rica bungalow is decorated in. She has tons of accessories this color, and I couldn’t help but take some pictures using some of them as props (hence the candle and pillow). Pretty neat huh? This is two coats, and it was flawless and beautiful! LOVE!
