  • Brown, Pink, and Silver Look - April 24th, 2010
  • Here is a pink yet still natural look. I was wearing brown, pink, and silver/gray, so I decided to use all these colors for my eyeshadow. The pink is pretty subtle, since it is light and only on the inner half of my lower lid.


  • Fashion Friday: Episode 12 - April 23rd, 2010
  • This butterfly dress and cardigan is from Forever 21. I like that the dress is really soft since its made of silk, the straps are adjustable, and the butterfly silhouettes are pretty. The cardigan has 2 pockets that you can put your hands in comfortably when you don’t tie it in the middle like I did above. The cardigan also looks cute with a pair of jeans and a plain white tank — and it’s only $13.99!

  • MAC Gold Pigments Look - April 21st, 2010
  • I’ve been using pigments a lot lately, because they are so fun to use with mixing medium and I like the vibrant effect they have. For this look, I used MAC “Golden Lemon” (yellow gold) and “Gold Stroke” (brownish gold) pigments.


  • Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub - April 20th, 2010
  • I was really excited that Lush Cosmetics Lip Scrubs ($8.95) finally became available in the US! They come in three flavors: Bubblegum, Mint Julips, and Sweet Lips. Lush Lip Scrubs help exfoliate dry, chapped lips. Just apply some to your lips with your finger, and either rub the sugar with your finger or move your lips back and forth. When you’re done, lick the sugar off and enjoy your softer lips and the yummy taste!
