The Black Queen Of Hearts




I know I know it's the Red Queen of Hearts, but too much red is enough! I saw my black lipstick lying there and that's when I decided to become the Black Queen of Hearts! I love love love this look! It's so much fun and I love the dark twist! Try it in every color! I am! By the way, Happy Halloween!

BatGirl To The Rescue!




I have never done "official" Halloween makeup, at least not on myself which is totally mind-boggling since Halloween is just about my favorite holiday! I decided to do a mask first and I think it came out pretty good! I used M.A.C's Penultimate liner to sketch. I used gel liner to outline and do detail work (which wasn't matte) and a matte black pigment to fill in the mask. So, it came out looking dry AND wet, which I wanted to fix but didn't know how, so I decided to leave well enough alone and present it to you as is! This is a rendition of one of M.A.C's Halloween face charts which was titled BatGirl! It was all kinds of perfect because I wanted to do a mask AND I happenend to have had a BatGirl costume hanging in my closet! (Seriously!) So without further ado I present myself to you as BATGIRL!!!!

Cruella Re-Visited




Another Cruella look, this time with very different shadow placement. I shot some of the pictures before I put on my lips, and looking at them I think a glossy nude lip would work equally as well. That's actually what I wore with this look for the day, but I couldn't resist my reds laying there! :) What a splendid collection! Venomous Villains is adorable for the upcoming holidays! Details below!

Maleficent!

So now we reach my favorite part of Venomous Villains! Maleficent! I adore purples and things that are dramatic so naturally 98% of the collection came home with me. This is a look I imitated from Temptalia. This is her Maleficent look. I don't know how I feel about it on me, but on her it was FAB! I think I would tweak the liner a tad. I don't have a silver liquid liner (yet!) so I used SugarPill's ChromaLust in Tiara, so that's why I didn't get as fine of a line as I would have liked. At any rate looking back at my photos I like it much more now that I did then so that's a plus!

The Evil Beautiful Queen




This is a quick look I did showcasing some of the products from the Evil Queen section of Venomous Villains. I adore Toxic Tale! It's such a gorgeous color! Unfortunately alot of people are turned off by how bright it is, but it's more versatile than one might think AND it's equally gorgeous on fair and deep skintones. Check it out!

Cruella!

I LOVE this part of the collection! I love red lips and copper shadow so this was a natural for me. There are so many ways you can use the shadows in Cruella's part! The best part is if you missed Cruella you can easily duplicate the shadows and lipsticks! Try Brave Red Cremesheen Lipstick, Coppering Shadow, Creme De Nude Lipstick, (All from M.A.C) and so forth. Actually this is a really classic color palette that is alot of fun to play with. Anyone can wear red lips! Yes ANYONE! Try different shades, intensities (straight from the tube or blotted down), various liners underneath, or a couple shades mixed together! The possibilities are endless! Now on to pictures which there are alot of because I adore this look! :)

The Evil Queen






Here is the first in a series of Venomous Villains looks (Which I've dubbed the Venomous Villains Chronicles) I plan to show you. This was such a massive collection and since I got more than my fair share of product, what better way to excercise my creativity than numerous blog posts?! This is a look I did for work. It was VERY busy and when I got home I was beat, thus no lips! There is so much you can do with Venomous Villains! Especially if you start mixing the parts of the collections! I didn't have my lips done in the photos but I wore Creme De Nude Lipstick, Viva Glam Gaga Gloss, Vino lipliner and Resort Life Lipgelee. I switched lip combos so much that day it's impossible to really be sure but it was something like that....

That Suspect Stole My Kush & My Money!!



Hey guys! Sorry I've been MIA but I've been working alot lately and since my job is a couple hours away I haven't been updating as much. I have shot a few awesome looks I'll post soon though! Until then, stay obsessed! :)
This is a look I did using Urban Decay's Book of Shadows 3. I am in love with all the new colors! They are amazing and look exactly like their namesakes. The colors are rich, buttery and uber blendable. This is a must in my book. Get BOS3 now, while you still can! (Check Sephora, Ulta and Macy's as well as Beauty.com)
