Basic 5-Minute Eye Makeup

28 Jan

Hey there friends. I’ve done exclusively weird, “artsy” looks for ya’ll lately, so I figured I’d throw something uber normal and a wee bit boring in the mix.

Ok, a lot bit boring. Whatever, it’s my blog and I’ll post boring looks if I wanna! *throws whiny fit*

Ugh, skin, stop being a butt. But there ya go, an all-matte eye using my sadly neglected Lorac Unzipped palette. Man, I love that little guy, but I forget about him in the back of my drawer 😦

Basically, what I look for in a quick eye look is definition. Since I have very flat “Asian” eyes (I am part Japanese, yo), a matte purple-taupe shadow helps give the illusion of some sort of dimension in the eye socket. Brown works, too, but cool tones mimic actual shadows. Sometimes I’ll add liner, but if I’m going for the why-yes-I-did-wake-up-like-this look, PASS.

And if you have smallish eyes like me, shadow smudged under the lower lashline does amazing things.

Then I finished it off with some weirdly sharp brows and a subtle bit of mascara and bam there you go~

Remember me?

20 Jan

Hey there friends. I apologize for the unplanned absence, but it’s been a weird, weird week for me. Weird couple of weeks, actually. We’ll see how things develop; it might be touch-and-go with me for a while. Bleh. I like schedules and deadlines 😛

Updates: I passed my red belt test for Taekwondo and I got into another college, Lawrence University in Wisconsin. They’ve sent me some funny emails, so it might be worth checking out. I’m very blasé about college.

Ok, now for the makeups!

I had to take these with flash due to it being way too early for decent natural light. Bleh. Flash. Anywho, I’ve had this idea bouncing around in my head for a while and finally decided to put pen to paper, so to speak. I like the contrast between red and blue, but I wish this look flattered my eye color 😦

Super Duper Shiny Eyeshadow

7 Nov

Hello, friends!shiny collage 2

This look was so super simple that I wasn’t even going to share it, but I a) just purchased 10GB of extra space (woot woot for pictures) and b) it was so shiny! I’m constantly after that ultra-shiny-runway-Vaseline-esque look, and I think I’ve finally found it. Behold!

Eyebrows. What are you doing. Eyebrows. Stahp.DSC05595

Today was evidently not a good day for the smiles. I only managed a pained grimace or three.shiny collage 3

Yeah, Olive, that’s realllll stoic.shiny collage 4

Products used:


♦ e.l.f. Studio Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow in Soiree (So so so gorgeous, could definitely be applied alone)

♦ Urban Decay Eyeshadow in YDK

♦ Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette

♦  Rimmel London Rockin’ Curves Mascara (Lol. I still have my doubts about the brush on this guy)


♦ Wet ‘n Wild Fergie Lipstick in Ferguson Crest Cabernet (really REALLY sheered out with Chapstick, obvs)


♦ NYX Blush in Taupe

♦ Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Silky Beige

♦ I’m honestly not wearing blush, that’s just my natural flush. *flips nonexistent hair*

And, by popular request (Kat asked me to, and no one could say no to Kat), my outfit ensemble of the day. It’s actually a crop top and a maxi skirt; I lived in constant paranoia of accidentally flashing the innocent public with a glimpse of my scandalous midriff. That is no way to live, people.

In other news, it frightened my mother and THAT is a plus.

This necklace is from Target (haul here), skirt J.C. Penney, shirt Forever 21. I’m a cheap person, what can I say.

Shoot me a comment if you enjoyed this post or if you have any suggestions for future tutorials, reviews, and tags; I’d love to hear them!


P.S. Right now I’m at theater- 2 weeks to showtime! Wish us luck! I’m not sure I ever mentioned, but I’m co-head makeup artist for the musical Cinderella, and that meant that the Fairy Godmother got purple hair and pink lashes. No regrets.
