  • MAC Pro Chromagraphic Pencils + EOTD - July 26th, 2010
  • MAC Pro Chromagraphic Pencils are multi-use — great for lining, outlining, and defining your makeup designs. They are soft and creamy, making them really easy to apply. I wrote about the neutral shades in a previous post, but now I purchased two of the colorful shades. I’ve also included an EOTD (Eye of the Day) using these new pencils.


  • Navy Blue and Lime Green Look - July 24th, 2010
  • While I was at the mall, I walked by Charlotte Russe and saw a lime green sequin top on display. I immediately thought of my MAC “Sweet & Punchy” eyeshadow from the To The Beach collection, so I knew I had to buy this top! This is the makeup I came up with to match this cute lime top and the navy skirt I wore that night.


  • Fashion Friday: Episode 25 - July 23rd, 2010
  • This blue jacket and colorful leaf-print dress are from H&M. I love the brightness of this blue jacket, which matches the little splashes of blue on the dress. Another thing I love about this outfit (besides the price) is it gives me a lot of flexibility on colors to wear for my makeup (since I usually base my makeup looks on what I’m wearing). :)


  • Blue, Teal, and Gold Look - July 22nd, 2010
  • This is a fun colorful look where I used blue, teal, and gold on my eyes, light plum with a white-gold champagne highlighter for my cheeks, and pink for my lips. This is also my first look using the new “Partylicious” pigment from MAC’s Alice + Olivia collection — a gorgeous turquoise color with silver pearl.


  • Smokey Brown Look - July 21st, 2010
  • Here’s a more natural take on the dramatic smokey eye. Natural smokey eye looks can be an elegant nighttime look. To achieve a very wearable daytime smokey eye look, just use a smaller amount of the darkest brown eyeshadow on your outer V and blend it out.
