Illamasqua Nails with my Too Faced Palette

12 Apr



My current nail color, Loella. It’s the perfect cool toned baby pink without looking like you’re 14 years old.

Too Faced Sweet Dreams palette, from their holiday 2011 collection. To depot, or not to depot… that is the question.

Thoughts? Happy Thursday!

Happy Monday!  I wanted feature some of my favorite make-up tutorials with you guys today.  I don’t have any of my own tutorials yet but it has been brought to my attention from one of my readers that I should features some videos on here.  I’m going to share with you some of my favorite holiday looks!

As If! Urban Decay 24/7 Liners take me back to 1997

14 Dec

Eyeliner, where would I be without you?  You defined a very important time in my life, my 6th grade year when I went through my “goth meets Clueless” phase.   Back then, I would draw black eyeliner all around my eyes and smudge, and pair with my miniskirts, knee highs, and platform tennis shoes.  I have no idea how I go away with this.

Back then, I would just buy whatever my parents would let me get at my local K Mart.  I cannot tell you about the quality of pigmentation of the eyeliners I got back then (although I’m sure they still made me look like a houligan) but I can tell you I’ve learned quite a bit since then.

Fast forward 14 years, and here’s the eyeliner I’ve evolved into using….

Zoya Holiday Nail Polish, Holly makes me holla!

6 Dec

Continuing on with the holiday theme here, today’s post is about nail polish!  While I do not claim to be any sort of nail polish expert, I am sure about one thing: I like pretty nails.  I also can give you a basic run down of polish, including:  How many coats does it take to reach full coverage; does it chip; and how the color translates from the bottle to your nail.  Pretty much the basics, which really, when it comes down to it, it’s all you need to know.

Celebrating with Stila Holiday Lip Glaze Set

3 Dec

Tis the season… for lipgloss.  Fah rah rah rah rah, rahrah, rah rah.

With 8 lip glazes for $25, my lips are going to stay glossy for quite some time.  It features 8 lip glazes (0.5 oz), the full size glazes are 0.8 oz and run $22 each.  Either way, it’s a good deal in my book, especially if you want to get a variety of colors!

NARS Joyous Red lipstick makes me joyous!

1 Dec

Can you believe it’s the holiday season?  I feel like I’m still settling down from Halloween and how awesome my Miss Piggy costume was… and now it’s time to buy Christmas presents?  And then a new year?  That’s crazy talk!

Well, to help ease my nerves I went out holiday make-up shopping.  It’s very therapeutic this time of year.  I snagged the NARS Joyous Red lipstick from Sephora about a month ago, and I’ve been raving about it ever since.

Check out my swatches!  Continue reading
