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!
This look features two Inglot eye shadows from my 40-pan Freedom System palette I picked out in Las Vegas last summer but haven’t used until now. One is a silvery white with pearly sheen (“447″), and the other is a dark gray with frosty finish (“23″). To this day, I have not come across an Inglot eye shadow that I didn’t like. The color payoff on these are great, just like all the other Inglot eye shadows I’ve used so far. They are very easy to blend as well!
YouTube makeup guru and Lancôme video makeup artist Michelle Phan put together this Lancôme Glamour Eyes kit that’s exclusively sold at Sephora. I had plans to try out the Lancôme Artliner Eyeliner sometime, so I figured I’d just buy this kit since it comes with a full-size Artliner in “Noir” as well as a Color Design All-In-One 5 Shadow and Line Palette called “307 Chic by Chelle” and a travel-size Hypnôse Drama Mascara. Check out my swatches, EOTD, and reasons why I returned it.
I’ve been making mix CDs for my mom ever since I got my first CD burner sometime in the 90s. One of my favorites is a Christmas mix that has a song about a lonely Christmas tree. My mom really liked this song after hearing it once on the radio, but she didn’t know most of the lyrics. I eventually surprised her with it in my mix CD. This makeup look is inspired by Stevie Wonder’s “One Little Christmas Tree” — it has a little tree standing in the snow lighting up a gray sky with its gold star.
This is the first makeup look I came up with using MAC Limited Edition Paint Pot in “For Effect” (see my review). To make the Inglot gray eye shadow bolder and to add more sparkle to the lid, I used For Effect first as a base on my lid and then applied the eye shadow on top of it. I also applied a matte pink eye shadow to tie in the new MAC “Rebel” lipstick I just bought.
