  • Fashion Friday: Episode 13 - April 30th, 2010
  • This week’s Fashion Friday is from H&M — a bow-front sleeveless top ($19.95) and a high-waisted pencil skirt ($24.95). I like how the ends of the bow drape over the top of the skirt.

  • Smokey Purple EOTD - April 29th, 2010
  • I’m going to start including quick EOTD (Eye of the Day) posts in between my usual posts. These are intended to be eyeshadow looks that you can do and use any blush and lipstick that you like! EOTDs will typically consist of just a picture or two of the eyeshadow and a description of makeup used in the order that I used them.

  • MAC Pro Gold Pigment Look - April 28th, 2010
  • The MAC Pro pigment I used in this look is pure gold color, unlike the other “gold” pigments I’ve been using that are a mix of gold and other colors. I kept the gold pigment to below my crease so that the gold only shows up as a thin line when I have my eyes fully open. The lipstick I’m wearing is from the new MAC Pret-a-Papier Collection that launched last Thursday, April 22, 2010.

  • Chartreuse Look - April 27th, 2010
  • Chartreuse is a yellow-green color named after the color of a French liqueur. It is also the name of a MAC Pro pigment that I’ve been liking a lot lately. I got a sample of it initially, but since I’ve used it many times already I decided to buy the full-size pigment at the MAC Pro store in San Francisco over the weekend.

  • Rilakkuma Mirror - April 26th, 2010
  • I’ve been a big fan of Rilakkuma, a Japanese bear character by San-X, ever since I visited Japan three years ago. I’ve been looking for a cute makeup mirror I could take with me when I travel, and this one is perfect! When it’s closed, it’s really thin and compact. I can position the mirror to either stand straight or at an angle, and I can see my whole face while keeping both of my hands free!
