Look: Kat Von D Metal Palette

Well, for this look, all I know for the shadows is that I used the ones from the Kat Von D Metal Palette. I never wrote down which ones, but luckily there is a limited amount in there. It’s very blue. Not sure if I like it that much, but here it is…

Look: New Years Eve Dark Eyes

We went to a friend’s New Years party – it wasn’t wild or anything, but the dress code was “semi-formal,” so we got some nice clothes on and I decided to do a really dark eye look. It’s really a classic smokey, but ultra dark. So naturally, I did lighter on the lips. It was a good look for me because I felt sexy and confident, my lips were easy to reapply with or without a mirror, and I wasn’t self conscious about my lips fading while I drank, ate, talked, etc. The evening was a lot of fun!!

Look: Matching with Orange

Orange can be a difficult color to match with. Since I got the NARS Mediteranee e/s duo, I wanted to wear it. So I chose a nice outfit with brown and decided to pair it with some brown shadows with gold highlights. I really like the end results. I know that orange eyeshadow can be a very bright color for some people to pull off, but if you can do it, I think you should!

Look: Smokey Electra

This is a take on the smokey gray eyes with a MLBB (my lips, but better) color. It’s simple white, gray, and black blended together to make it look smokey. It’s a great look for going out (even though I’m wearing this one to work…in a t-shirt ha!). But that’s just the way I am I guess. :-) Happy New Year to you and your families!

Look: Pigments Barely Used (great for fall)

This is a great fall look – a type of burnt orangish color, and I love the way it looks. It’s pretty bold. Fall is coming…it’s in the air…can you feel it…? (I can’t yet…it’s too hot lol!)

Look: My Cousin’s Wedding

My little cousin Mallory got married in the little town of Abilene, TX. I was in her “House Party” which means pretty much nothing, but I got to walk down the isle with a wrist flower and be special for a night because we’re related, which was really nice. It was a freaking beautiful wedding. Parts of it were simple, and parts of it were exquisite. I was asked to wear a black dress, so this is the makeup I decided to wear with the black dress, evening, 450 people attending wedding. Simple, matte, neutral eyes and dark lips. At first I went with a dark silvery lipstick (Chantecaille’s Luna), but my husband said it looked like it was for a funeral. So I switched to the YSL #41, which I felt was too bright. So thank goodness I brought that black gloss – it was so perfect to darken up the lip color! As my mom said,” Who would’a thunk?!” She even wanted to try some on top of her mauve lipstick! Haha!

Look: 4th of July with Red Lips

It was one of the best 4th of July’s I’ve had in a long time. We went over to our friend’s place around 1pm and stayed until after 1 in the morning! We ate bbq, chips & dip, drank some wine and beer, played poker, hung out at the spa, played Apples to Apples, and watched fireworks. Of course there was also a lot of laughter and good conversation too. Today’s my friend Marie’s birthday, so I gotta give her a shout out – Happy Birthday Marie! Ok now on to what I wore…

It was a toss up between wearing a blue shirt and doing bright blue eyes or wearing a red shirt and doing red lips. I threw both around for a while because I like the red shirt better, but red lips is hard to keep up with all day long! In the end, I decided to go with the shirt that I felt was more flattering, and decided to keep up with the red lips, and it worked! Thank you YSL!

So what did you all do makeup-wise for the 4th??
