• Lucky Star Makeup Look - February 2nd, 2013
  • I’ve been incorporating stars in some of my nighttime makeup looks ever since I got my hands on “Good Luck Star” stencils from the MAC & Carine Roitfeld Collection. I like to change up the quantity, placement, and colors of the stars, but for this look I just stuck to the 2 different-sized stars that come in one stencil, only applied it next to my left eye, and used black for both stars. I like the perfect star shape the stencil provides, but I think it would be just as cute to freehand it!

  • Urban Decay Smoked Palette Look 1 - August 22nd, 2012
  • For my first makeup look using the Urban Decay Smoked Palette, I came up with a basic neutral smokey eye that can be worn during the day and into the night. I used three colors: Kinky (matte ivory), Mushroom (shimmery warm pale gray), and Barlust (metallic dark golden brown). Kinky and Barlust are new and exclusive to this palette. I really like how applying Mushroom on the lid turned out — it’s a subtle gray that adds something special to a typical brown smokey eye.

  • Fan Look: Subtle Blue and Green Makeup - August 9th, 2012
  • I remember reading a comment from Monica on my Glittery Teal and Brown Look about how she wasn’t comfortable wearing blue and green eye shadows. I sent her a link to one of my makeup looks that combines both blue and green that I wanted her to try someday. This past weekend I got an email from Monica saying that after a few tries, she now LOVES blues and greens! Here’s how her makeup turned out!

  • Sparkly Gold, Brown, and Black Makeup Look - August 2nd, 2012
  • I’ve always been a big fan of shimmery gold eye shadow (even my very first MAC eye shadow was a limited edition gold called “Bagatelle”), so I was really excited when I came across Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow in “89 Vision” when I was in Germany earlier this month. Vision is jam-packed with gold sparkle that can be used to create a very bold gold look as well as just to add something special to an everyday look, like I did in today’s makeup look. :)

  • Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Look 2 - May 15th, 2012
  • Here’s my second makeup look using the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette! This look features pale golden beige (“Suspect”) and dark bronze (“Snakebite”). Since I wanted to come up with something more dramatic, I applied the matte black eye shadow called “Blackout” just inside the outer V to create some depth. I also used my new Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in “Perversion” to line my lower waterline to finish the look.
