Look: UD Naked Look #2

Here is my second look using only the UD Naked Palette. It’s a little softer that the previous one, and a little on the pinker side. If you’re into nudes at all and don’t have the colors in this palette already, I highly recommend it! These shadows are really great!!

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Primer, Urban Decay Naked Palette: Sin (inner lid), Toasted (middle lid), Hustle (outer lid), Creep (crease), Virgin (highlight), UD Zero (liner), MAC Opulash mascara
  • Cheeks: Chanel Rose Temptation JC + MAC Smooth Merge MSF
  • Lips: NARS Oasis lipgloss

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: Some New Corals

I had all of these new strange coral eyeshadow colors so I decided to combine them all. I say “strange” because corals are a difficult color to use on the eyes, at least for me. I find the same thing for really light or true pinks. Of all of the new eyeshadows I’ve bought lately, I think I’ve only gotten like 1 pink that doesn’t lean purple. :-)

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: UDPP Eden (primer), MAC Coral Crepe PP (base), MAC Tissueweight (inner lid), MAC Hot Hot Hot (middle lid), MAC Cut to Fit (outer lid), NARS Mekong (crease), MAC Teddy Kohl liner, Chanel Exceptionnel mascara
  • Cheeks: MAC Ripe Peach two-toned blush
  • Lips: MAC Pret-A-Papier lipgloss

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: Fyrinnae Pinks & Purples

I’m soooo into these indie brands lately! I am really loving pigments more than anything else right now. I’m sure it’s a phase, but it’s a phase that I’m really enjoying! Fyrinnae is ONE of the best brands out there (only available online), and I have lots of pigments from this company. Everything is vegan, and they have their very own chemist making the cosmetics. What is so great about this company is that you can order samples of the pigments for less than $2 each! And a sample from Fyrinnae is bigger than a little baggie – it’s a small jar that would take you LOTS of looks to finish.  I love this brand and am currently plotting my next order. However, everyone else out there seems to love them too, so sometimes they take down their site to control the number of orders, and shipping does take time. They’re a small company, but WELL worth the wait!

  • Eyes: NARS Smudgeproof Eye Primer (primer), MAC Painterly PP (base), Fyrinnae Healing Touch (inner lid), Fyrinnae Kitten in Heels (middle lid), Fyrinnae Faerie Glamour (outer lid), Fyrinnae Fyre & Ice (crease), Makeup Store Angel (highlight), MAC Point Black (upper lashline), UD 24/7 Ransom (waterline), MAC Opulash mascara
  • Cheeks: MAC Briar Rose Beauty Powder
  • Lips: MAC Wrong Spell lipglass (thin layer), MAC Resort Life lipgelee

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
  • Lips: Guerlain Grace Rouge G lipstick, Chanel Aqualumiere Pink Diamond lipgloss

Look: Pink & Blue

This is a slightly older look that I forgot to post! I think this look is better in concept…the middle looks too gray I think. But the pink on the lid makes the look less bold, and blue tends to be quite bold. It’s a nice combo that didn’t come out looking purple. And oh, how I love frosty pink lips!!! :-)

Look: NARS Essential Eyes Palette

This is a great palette if for no other reason than it has Galapagos and Thunderball :-) LOVE those colors!!! When I told the lady at the NARS counter that I wanted Galapagos, she said she didn’t have it and I must have shown visible signs of disappointment because she immediately said “but wait, I have THIS” and pulled out the Essential palette. Since I didn’t have any of the colors in it already and it had the color I wanted so badly, I thought SCORE! Has that ever happened to you?

I must have run out of space on my camera the day I did this look because there aren’t a lot of pictures…sorry about that.

Look: In the Gallery Quad

I wasn’t sure about this quad when I first got it, but it created a really nice matte look. It’s soft and chic. The shadows looked pink and purple, but it comes out more brown on my lid. It’s so interesting to see how different colors turn out differently on various skin tones. I did a girl’s makeup when I was working at MAC – she was going to be in a beauty pageant – and I started using Satin Taupe. It looked totally purple-ish on her! It was such a cool color, so I had to warm it up with more yellow toned browns. Ok, I digress, but it was interesting!
