Look: Chanel SoHo Collection

I’m not completely sure how I feel about the eyeshadow quad, but one thing is for sure: I LOVE the lips!! The quad is nice, but kinda weird. The silvery color is way more pigmented than I expected, so it’s kinda bright. I honestly didn’t expect it to show up at all. The middle color is sheer, and it gives my lids that slick/oily look, which I absolutely cannot stand in makeup pictures. Finally, the dark color really wasn’t that pigmented either. I decided to keep it as-is so I could just use the colors in the palette. Not darkening up the crease isn’t a very “me” look, but the way the lips wrapped it all up…totally saved the look IMO.

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base, Chanel Stupendous Eyeshadow Quad, Bobbi Brown Violet Shimmer Ink (upper lashline), MAC Smolder Eyekohl (waterline), MAC Opulash Mascara
  • Cheeks: Chanel Rose Pink JC
  • Lips: Chanel Stunt Rouge Allure Laque

Look: Shady Lady w/ Guerlain Gems!

Didn’t I tell ya I love this Shady Lady palette?! The colors blend beautifully. The little pop of green helped the eyes come together and not be too dark. But the real star of this look is the lipstick. Guerlain Rouge G lipstick are some of the most glorious and luxurious ones on the market. Gems was limited edition – a beautiful coral pink. So perfect, it doesn’t need any gloss on top. :-)

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: UDPP (primer), Shady Lady palette: Jet-setting-jennifer (inner lid), easy wheezie (middle lid), all about alex (outer lid), jealous jordana (crease), MAC Solar White (highlight), Bobbi Brown Forest Shimmer Ink (upper lash line), UD Grafitti (waterline), Chanel Exceptionnel mascara
  • Cheeks: Cheeky Bronze MSF
  • Lips: Guerlain Gems Rouge G l/s

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: Lots of Mineral Shadows!

I’ve been a little lazy in getting out my normal shadows, and more into getting out what I haven’t touched in a LOOONG time (or ever!). I’m enjoying using the Metal X shadows as bases too. I really don’t like this look that much though. None of my pictures seemed to come out right. None of them have lately actually…ah well.

Look: Sophisticated Silvers

I had to go to a major training the day I wore this look, so I needed something semi-sophisticated, not too OTT, but not too nude. I was reminded how much I really like this lipgloss too!

Look: A Night in Hawaii

This was from my first “real” night in Kauai. We spent all day at the beach right outside the Marriott where we’re staying. Beautiful day. I did this look just because I felt like doing full makeup :-) I took some pictures of the view right from our balcony. Beautiful huh?! It’s kind of a frosty-smokey look…enjoy!

Look: Deep Truth Smokey

I love wearing bright blue! This is a look kinda like the Kim Kard. look, but with Deep Truth instead of Contrast. Et Tu, Bouquet? is so light on me, it might as well not be there…I also threw in a little Silverthorn to make the lid a little smokier. :-)
