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).

“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!

27 Feb

I’ve been itching to get my hands on some of MAC’s new permanent eyeshadows and I finally did.  This look is featuring Free To Be, but I also snagged Lucky Green.  On a recent trip to the Pro store in Las Vegas, I couldn’t leave without taking home Hot Hot Hot and La La — two new gorgeous colors from the new Colro Story collection!  It’s been a while since I’ve done a pastel-shadow look in the pink/peach realm, so here’s how it turned out:

Summer Sherbert Eye

17 Sep
I have been obsessed with MAC’s Sushi Flower eyeshadow lately — it has very impressive pigmentation and is the perfect summer shadow for girly looks.  I think since it has blue tones, it makes the whites of your eyes look whiter and brings out pink tones in your skin.  Here’s the look I created for the perfect youthful summer glow.
