Metallic Smoke

Hi guys! This a look I did using the Smoky Pigment set from M.A.C. Holiday 2009. These are such great colors to have. Whether you use them solo or in tandem, these will be a great addition to your collection if you love smoky eyes and loose shadows. I hadn't really ever used Dark Soul before and now I know why my sister (Hi Andrea!) says its her favorite pigment. FYI: M.A.C Reflects used with a mixing medium is amazing! On to the look!

My Heart is Burning!

Hey! I've been absent for awhile but I've started a new job and I'm in training right now. Hopefully when that ends I'll be on here much more. I have been tweeting a bit so if you'd like follow/contact me there!
This is a look I did using the Burning Heart Quad from SugarPill. (Can't get over this line!) This palette is so hot! I absolutely love it! I know one of my pictures is fuzzy but it shows the brightness of the shadows and the color in my gloss. (Still working on the camera thing) If you want to try or check SugarPill out, click here! Now on with the show!

Decora LOVE!!

Hey guys!! I just recieved my latest SugarPill order! I just cannont get enough of this brand!! I got Decora and Asylum ChromaLust Loose Shadows. In this look I used primarily Decora and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! I haven't heard too many people talk about this one, and I must say its so HOT. Rich baby pink with green sparkles that stay in the shadow and not on your face! These are long lasting by the way. I used my M.A.C Mixing Medium and once it dried it didn't budge! I did have on my Urban Decay Primer Potion though...but these really do have great staying power on their own. Anyway, enough chatter on to the look! :)

Tipsy on Absinthe!

This is a look I threw together the other day. I wanted something quick and colorful and this fit that bill! I'm still working on how to get more details of my looks to show...hopefully you can see the jist of them until I get it all worked out!
BTW: Absinthe is a green highly potent (and illegal) anise-flavored spirit, hence my FOTD title!

Royally Sugared Up!! (NewPics Added 4-10!)

Hi! I hope everyone had a fab Easter Holiday, I know I did! ;)
So this is a look I did a couple days ago using one of my favorite SugarPill Chroma Lust Shadows in Royal Sugar. This is a rich, bold shimmery royal blue that is totally awesome! Think of a more amped up, velvety version of M.A.C's Sea & Sky Mineralize Duo (The dark blue side). This wasn't the look I wanted to end up with but it's what I got and I think it works!

Dramatic Mermaid FOTD

This is a look I did yesterday that was inspired by watery mermaid colors. Lately I've really been feeling blue. (As you'll see in some of my upcoming posts) HA!
Bear with me as I'm still trying to figure out the best lighting and camera settings to get as accurate of a picture as I can. I'm not quite there, but it's coming! ;-)

SugarPill Review & Swatches!!

What better way to start my blog than with a review of the insanely popular new cosmetic line Sugarpill?! I recieved my order this past Monday and I must say I'm in love! I've already placed a second order for more of the loose shadows! (Asylum & Decora) Sugarpill is the brainchild of Shrinkle (Amy) and I must say she really hit the ball out of the park with her line. It's bright AND pigmented! This is exactly what I've been looking for, and I couldn't be more pleased with my package! The colors are smooth, easy to blend and totally unique. The excitement begins before you even open the box. Its's a white box with the SugarPill logo printed on front along with a cute sticker. Inside everything is wrapped in hot pink tissue and you recieve a SugarPill logo sticker, Amy's business card and a two-sided Sugarpill card featuring looks from the line. You've got to give this a try! My current faves are: Royal Sugar, Hysteric, Burining Heart Quad and Sweetheart Quad. You can purchase Sugarpill here.
