Golden Summer

18 Jun

This look makes me want to lay out on the sand and literally become bronzed by the summer sun!  I love the sultriness of the subtle shimmer.

Romp Along

4 Jun

I use MAC Charcoal Brown daily as a brow filler, but I’ve never actually used it in on my lid as an eyeshadow!  Today, I thought I’d test it out and do a smoky brown look.  I also found out it has a very similar base color to Romp, although Romp has shimmer and Charcoal Brown doesn’t.

Lala Land

28 May

Now that it’s almost summertime, I can whip out my bright eyeshadow colors and not feel embarrassed about wearing vibrant shades on my eyes!  I decided to play around a bit with MAC’s La la eyeshadow, but instead of pairing it with the expected pinks and purples, I chose up the “fun” factor by mixing it with  bright yellow gold, Gorgeous Gold, and an orangey-gold, Juiced.

NARS Mediteranee Eyeshadow Duo

19 May

I bought this eyeshadow a few years back and have used and lugged it around so much during my undergrad years that it kind of broke.  Luckily, there’s still plenty left, so I thought I’d bring it out of the woodwork and recreate the same look.  This shadow is available for purchase at online and in-store at Sephora and NARS (online only). The two colors in the duo are described as a

“muted gold shimmer & burnt orange shimmer”

, but they are extremely pigmented, so it’s imperative that you blend well.  A little of the orange color goes a long way, so use a small amount and build up until you’ve achieved the color intensity you want.  The orange color is far better than any of the MAC oranges in my opinion.  I know the price is a bit steep at $32.00 and I did purchase this duo a few years back when it was only $30.00, but your money will be well spent.  If you have never tried any NARS eyeshadow duos, give this one a try — you may not need any others!

Noticeably Neutral

8 May

One of my favorite ways to up the sophistication factor during the daytime is to use warm/cool neutrals on my eyes.  This way, I don’t have to resort to brighter colors to make a statement with my make-up.

Find out how I got this look:
