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: 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

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: Watermelon Candies

After I did this look and took pictures of it, it reminded me of watermelon candies :-) I guess the blue color doesn’t really fit in, but the pink and green together did. It was a nice spring/summer look. I will post some more recent FOTD looks soon. I have some good autumn ones and some new looks from the Venomous Villains collection.

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: UDPP (primer), MAC Girl Friendly PP (base), MAC Free to Be (inner lid), MAC Newly Minted (middle lid), MAC Winkle (outer lid), Bobbi Brown Black Ink (upper lashline), MAC Feline Kohl Power (waterline), Chanel Exceptionnel mascara
  • Cheeks: MAC Daft Pink mineralized blush

Look: Bobbi Brown Goes Green

You just can’t beat the silky smoothness of Bobbi Brown shadows. Buttery soft and so pigmented; they’re just amazing! The lipgellee on the other hand…it was brighter than it showed up in the pictures. I ended up returning it. It looks pretty with this look, but it didn’t wear well for me.

I hope everyone has a Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Look: Chameleon

I call this one chameleon because that is what it looks like to me! It’s like it could change color depending on how you look at it…like a duochrome nail polish! It’s got greens and teals and golds… Whoa! I loved how it turned out :-)

Look: All About Yaby!

I told you about when I first discovered Yaby products right? I was at a salon by LAX, and one of my friends who is also into makeup, told me I HAVE to try these pearl paints by Yaby. Of course I had never heard of the up and coming brand from Toronto, but I trusted her. Normally, I don’t give a second look to brands I haven’t heard of (horrible of me or not)…there are enough brands that I have heard of and haven’t tried. She showed me how wonderful they were, how cool the palette is, and how inexpensive they are.

Anyway, I love this brand. I have nearly every Pearl Paint color and some of the regular shadows too. So this is a look I did with some of those colors.

Look: Purples & Greens

Sorry for the long pauses between posts. I have to get back into the habit. I gotta find my camera so I can take pictures of new looks too :-) I think purple and green go well together.

I did a great look today using the new Style Black shadows. I’ll have to do it again after I find my camera and post it. Really smokey eyes :-) My favorite MUA, Denise, made a killing off of me yesterday! I love her :-) I didn’t get the grease paint stick though, and I’m kinda regretting it. Any thoughts? Do you think it’s a must have?
