FOTD: Island girl pink (using “Sunset B”)

I really don’t like the way pink eyeshadows look on me, but I figured id try and do a look using “Sunset B” from the Starflash collection. It definitely shows up a lot better with a base that’s for sure!

For the lips I used MAC’s Pro Longwear Lustre in “Fully Charged”, a nice pretty soft pink, which is part of their permanent line.

What I used:
[Face]

– Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer
– Purely Cosmetics Mineral Foundation in “Olive Beige” (love it!)

[Cheeks]
– Modern Beauty Blush (I got from the show) in “C122″

[Eyes]
– MAC PP in “Fresco Rose” as base on lids
– MAC Starflash e/s in “Sunset B” applied over Fresco Rose
– MAC “Fuchsia” Pigment on outer-V and contour
– MAC “Pinked Mauve” Pigment (LE) on crease
– MAC Neo-Sci Fi e/s in “Femme-Fi” as highlight
– Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner in Black
– Shiseido Mascara Base
– L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara
– Milani Eye Pencil in black on lower lashline

[Lips]
– MAC Pro Longwear in “Fully Charged”

FOTD: Yellow & Fuschia

Haha some of you said “Welcome Back” on my last post, but I am STILL here in NY, those were just some pics I took so far…but nope still here until Thursday.

Anyway, I wanted to do some crazy makeup, so I did yellow and fuschia last week and it actually looked cool in person…but yeah it’s one of those looks you find yourself doing once. I used some of the NYX Chrome Eyeshadows



What I used:

Face
– Monistat Chafing Gel (as primer)
– Meow Cosmetics Primer Powder

Cheeks:
– MAC Blush in “Fashion Frenzy”

Eyes:

– MAC Pigment in “Bright Fuchsia” on outer-V
– MMBB e/s in “highlight” as highlight

Lips:
– MAC l/s in “Show Orchid”
– Lancome Lipgloss in “Seashell”

FOTD: Spunky Pink

Wow! Looks like many of you ladies are in search of a GPS! haha, some of you asked me which portable GPS I have, it’s the GARMIN NUVI 350, and it comes with its own carrying case, the BF knows I get lost all the time, so I was really happy he got it for me a couple of Christmas’s ago…and yes, I DO love hand helds and gadgets! I don’t know why but I am really into electronics and games, glad you ladies pointed that out from “What’s in my purse”. And I do love the iPhone! It’s the best phone i’ve had, it’s really a one-stop shop for me, I can check weather, maps, email, go online, watch YouTube, ALL on it! So it’s my “window to the outside world”. I had a T-Mobile MDA phone before, and it was cool for a hot minute, but then I never got reception and couldn’t go on certain websites.

Anyway, I did a look today with luscious pink lips because I was itching to do a FOTD using the Lancome Lipgloss in “Seashell” I just got, I am in love with that gloss! It’s super pretty, yet the perfect pink and sheer at the same time! I can’t wait to pair it with the “Desert Pink” lipstick I am waiting to get!

I kept the eyes REALLY, REALLY neutral, using “Provence” pigment and two eyeshadows, and I played up the cheeks with Milani Blush in “Cherries on Top” to match the lips.

MAC l/s in “Up the Amp”, with Lancome Lipgloss in “Seashell”

What I used:

Face:
– Camellia Rose Skin Soothing Primer (love this stuff! review coming soon!)
– MadMinerals “Medium Golden” Mineral Foundation

Cheeks:

– Milani Blush in “Cherries on Top”

Eyes:
– MAC Paint Pot in “Soft Ochre” as base all over lid
– MAC “Provence” Pigment all over the lid

– MAC e/s in “Patina” (my favorite neutral eyeshadow) on outer-V and contour
– Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black
– Covergirl LashBlast Mascara
– NYC eyebrow set

Lips:
– MAC lipstick in “Up the Amp”
– Lancome Lipgloss in “Seashell”

Also, Aquadisiac wanted to see swatches of the Jane Blush in “Blushing Earth” and the Milani “Luminous” Blush as I found them to be strikingly similar…the Jane blush was more shimmery and peachy, and “Luminous” had a slight shimmer but more of a salmon pink/peach.

FOTD- Pink Princess

My 10 year old sister LOVES pink, and since she is my little princess no matter how old she is, I thought id dedicate this FOTD to her, since she is my “mini me”.

FOTD/Tutorial- Hot Hepcat

Thank you to all you ladies who left comments on my last post, especially to you new readers to my blog, thanks for taking the time to say “hello” as I do love getting to know all of you! Seems like a lot of people have the CANON SD750, it IS indeed a good camera, glad you gals let me know how you like it!

Here is a tutorial on the “Hot Hepcat” look I did last year (weird to say that lol), I also used the Maybelline Liquid Mineral foundation under my mineral powder foundation which gave an awesome airbrushed look that lasted. And yes using my NEW camera! Yay! I also have another FOTD where you will probably have a better look at the Maybelline liquid foundation.

FOTD: Bronze Natural & FOTD: Hot Hepcat

Wow! The sale was a big success, it went a lot faster than I thought! Sorry to you gals who missed out on certain items, mostly everything went fast, but don’t worry, I still have a lot of stash cleaning to do, so there will probably be another sale soon in a few weeks!

I emailed those who were interested in the items, if they don’t respond by Tuesday I will then go to the second interested buyer. :) And to reader JENNIFER who was interested in the gel eyeliner, leave me your email addy so I can invoice ya.

Anyway, I did a bronze, sorta natural look on Friday using 2 of the Urban Decay eyeshadows “Shag” and “Underground”. I was going for a neutral, yet bronzy look…I actually liked it, probably enough to use for an everyday look. The co-workers loved it, especially since they are used to me with the crazy vibrant color combos! LOL.
