Purple Haze!

This is a look I did using all purples. It came out ok! I love the colors but next time think I'll do something different with textures and color placement. I'm not crazy about the lashes either. Sometimes I can pop them right on and then other times it's Russian Roulette. Far away they look good, but upon closer review not so much! I also made the mistake of over applying M.A.C's Saint Germain lipstick! (Which I guess in looking at the pics; the ones I decided to post anyway, *lol* I didn't go TOO overboard!)This isn't a color that those with deeper skintones can apply with reckless abandon. (Even though this IS a color I would suggest trying on deep skin) It should be dabbed on SPARINGLY and adjusted from there. I can't really tell you why I applied it straight from the tube.... I guess all looks don't come out the way you want do they? At any rate it was fun to do and I thought I'd share! :) Want more deets? Keep Reading!

Smokey Moss Green

Hi Everyone! This is a look I did for my first M.A.C Freelance update!! I'm so excited! Anyway, I'm not really sure why I don't use my rich golden greens more (Probably because I have too much makeup!) because they really make my eyes POP! This look really didn't take long and these colors would be amazing on a myriad of skintones. It appears these sort of greens are really "in" for fall, so I guess I'm right on trend! Pictures and look info after the jump!

Midnight Bloom!

Midnight Bloom with M.A.C Nightmoth Lipliner
Midnight Bloom is another Pure Color Gloss ($20) from Estee Lauders fall collection Blue Dahlia by Tom Pecheux. This an absolutely stunning color that quite frankly I have no idea how to describe. In the tube it appears to be a deep wine berry OR a black gloss with red sparkles depending on the lighting you happen to be in.

Plum Divine!

This a quick review/FOTD (Face of the Day) for the Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Plum Divine. This is a color released with their fall collection Blue Dahlia by Tom Pecheux (I got a couple other products from this collection which I'll showcase later). For women of color this is a gorgeous everyday fall neutral. If you like berries but aren't too keen on rocking them because they may be a little over the top then this color is definitely worth a glance. Fair skinned ladies will find this more dramatic but not so dramatic it can't be worn in the daytime or only at night. It will be a gorgeous berry lip on anyone!

Sassy Grass!

This is a look I did using primarily Sassy Grass eyeshadow from M.A.C's new Dare To Wear Collection. It's a gorgeous collection of vivid eyeshadows and Lipglasses inspired by Lady Gaga. Sassy Grass is a GORGEOUS bright, grassy crayon green! It's seriously beautiful and I recommend it to everyone! If you don't want it all over the lid just use it as a liner or as a bright accent.
