Glitter Falls ft. Sugarpill & NYX

21 Aug

Hello, all! Got some glitter for you today :D

I don’t really know where I was going with this. I just knew I wanted to include glitter. So that happened.

I used lip balm to stick down the glitter under the eye in a triangle shape, as if it were spilling out of my eye. Because I cry glitter. I added the glitter liner on the wing to tie it all together.glitter fall col 2

 

The eyeliner shape was born out of my desire to practice the inner corner wing. It always ends up looking like a bird, which I guess I walked into considering the color scheme. Ah well, nothing against birds.

Collaging this was a bit of fun as well.glitter fall col 3 Products used:

Sea Glass Inspired Makeup

19 Aug

Hello, all! A week or so ago I received a late late very very late birthday package from Julianna (it was worth it). She included bits of sea glass and shells collected for the beach, and as I am rather fond of anything colorful and shiny, I had to do makeup.

It’s not really a creative spark…more of a compulsion. Problems, problems.

Sea glass, or beach glass, is glass from broken bottles tossed about by the waves until the edges are smooth. It’s beautiful.

So there ya go, a simple green smokey eye with navy blue liner. sea glass collageWhen I started planning out this look, I knew I wanted something subtle. Sea glass is translucent (duh, it’s glass) and colorful in a soft way. The glass Julianna sent me was light green and deep, beer-bottle brown.

And another with gloss. Tip for application: pat it on with your finger to avoid smearing the pigment on the lid around. And don’t use anything with menthol in it, because it will sting horribly. sea glass collage 3  Products used:

Hello, all! I’ve had the Revealed 2 Palette for a couple months now and I’ve posted shockingly few looks with it. As in this is the first one. Oops. It’s a beautiful palette with the entire Naked 3 color range plus a few extras thrown in for good measure, namely a gorgeous matte burgundy shade with outstanding pigmentation. Cue makeup! *double clap*revealed 2 collage 4

This look would be stunning on green or blue eyes, but brown work too, I guess. revealed 2 collage 2revealed 2 collage
