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: 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

Look: Black Base Yields Green

I love wearing greens. This time, I switched it up a little. As a base, I used black, then layered green pigments over it. The color on the inner lid is actually a pretty sheer white pigment with green undertones. Look how it pops over the black! The middle color is more gold than green, but it fits the category. I was really happy with the way this look turned out. And the lipgloss kicks butt – I love it! There’s just no better combo than green with gold and coral! :-)

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: NARS Smudgeproof Primer, MAC Blackground PP, MAC Painterly PP, Makeup Store Soft Grass pigment (inner lid & brow bone), Fyrinnae Aztec Gold pigment (middle lid), Fyrinnae Boytoy (outer lid), MAC She Who Dares mineralized duo (green side) (outer lid), MAC Femme Fi (highlight), MAC Jealous Kohl Power (upper lashline), UD 24/7 Mildew (waterline & lower lashline), MAC Opulash mascara
  • Cheeks: MAC Bite of an Apple blush, MAC Truth & Light Magically Cool Liquid Powder (highlight)
  • Lips: MAC Strange Potion lipglass

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: 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: Happy Halloween!

I know I know, long time, no post! I actually am home all weekend, and I did a neat little Halloween look to go out to lunch and hang around the house with, and I took the time to take pictures and post it for you! :-) I’m not really into costumes and crazy (crazier?) makeup. MAC actually asked me to work today, but I passed, as I am surely not experienced at doing halloween makeup. So what kind of makeup do you wear on halloween when you don’t wear a costume? Black and Orange of course! It looks really nice IRL…the fade looks fantastic, but I’m not sure how well the camera captured it. But also, this is a neat look for me because it’s the first one I’ve documented in our new house!!! :-D

I hope you all have a fun, safe, and Happy Halloween!!!

Look: Silver on Black

I absolutely adore looking at Padmita’s looks. I don’t know if it’s because of her gorgeous light blue eyes, but she wears white liner on the waterline like no other! I envy her skills, her eye color, her creativeness, and her great camera (which takes really nice shots). So I went for the white waterline, but on me I think it looks kinda scary. Maybe I’m just not used to it? What’s your take?

Look: Mesmerizing Fyrinnae Teals

I love teals! I think greens and teals are my favorite colors to do looks with. I rarely get out my Fyrinnae colors because they’re just so messy! Even just opening the container gets dust all over my fingers and counter. But when it all comes together nicely, ahhh…I just love it :-)

Look: Smoke in Vegas Casinos

This past weekend we went to Vegas for our end of the season bowling tournament. I got ready for the whole day/night in the morning, and I went for a smokey eyeshadow look. Casinos are usually filled with smoke, so smokey eyes is appropriate right? LOL! I wore a dress out that night – the same one I wore to my students’ graduation. Although I wore just a white t-shirt to bowl in for the morning (which is when I took these pictures). It’s a different look for this dress, and I kinda liked it with my new hair cut. Husband liked it too ;-)
