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)

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

Look: Goldilux Glory

Wowie! This Sugarpill Goldilux is like the best gold ever! This gold and black smokey eye was like whoa! How did I forget to take a picture of a closed eye?! Seriously?! Ugh. Oh well. You can pretty much see it in the full face shots. This look was truly stunning in real life. The gold GLOWS. The High Voltage shadows are dark with some gold sparkle, so they matched perfectly. And look how well they blended together! *sigh* I am in love :-)

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: NARS Eyeshadow Primer (primer), Sugarpill Goldilux (inner & middle lid), High Voltage Stargazer (outer lid), High Voltage Dark Romance (crease), MAC Femme-Fi & Sugarpill Tako (highlights), High Voltage Dark Romance (wet)(liner), High Voltage Stargazer (wet)(lower lashline), MAC Orpheus (waterline), MAC Haute & Naughty mascara
  • Cheeks: MAC Refined Golden bronzer
  • Lips: Guerlain Rouge G #14 lipstick, MAC Bling Black glimmer gloss

Review & Swatches: Sugarpill Cosmetics

Well HELLO gorgeous!!!!!!!!!! This was a much anticipated haul. After seeing some outstanding reviews of this indie brand called Sugarpill, I had to check it out. Oh it is sooooooo flipping worth every penny. Amy, the maker of the brand, is a goddess. Seriously. How did she make these colors?! She’s a super sweetheart and she really stands behind her products (vegan btw). Now I’m a girl who knows her shadows. These go at the top of my list. Best ever. My only complaint is that there aren’t more colors for me to invest in LOL!!

OMG everything about this line is sexy. The boxes are sexy. The website where I ordered it all from is sexy. The packaging is sexy. The names are sexy. The colors….blow. my. mind.

My order came in a beautiful box stamped with the oh-so-cute Sugarpill logo (cute kitteh!).

Everything was wrapped in hot pink paper and there was even a little note hand singed by Amy!

See the palettes and swatches of the pigments!!!   Read the rest of this entry »
