Summer Brights FOTD

I was trying to write this last night but Blogger kind of went belly up. So here is a less detailed -because-I'm-tired-and-I-already-DID-this.

I can't think of anything better to pair obnoxious bright orange lipstick with than equally obnoxious lemon lime eyeshadow. All the eyeshadow is from my Manly 120 and the lipstick is MAC M'orange.

Give Me Gold FOTD

Whenever I don't feel like putting in the effort of selecting shades to use (aka can't decide on a color combo) I turn to one of my quads. No thinking required. This time I tried Maybelline's Eye Studio Eyeshadow Quad in Give Me Gold.

Products Used:
UDPP in Eden
Maybelline Eye Studio Quad in Give Me Gold
L'oreal Telescopic liquid liner
Maybelline Great Lash BIG mascara

Tarte Clean Slate primer
Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse
Mary Kay mineral powder foundation
MAC Bite of An Apple blush

NYX Honey lipstick (I think this is too much for my skintone)

I can't think of a clever name for this post so to not further delay this, I'm just going to call it IDK.

This is another look I did using colors from my Urban Decay Deluxe palette, and the highlight is another UD color that I absolutely love- Polyester Bride. It's one of the only eyeshadows I have ever finished a pan of- going on 2. It's the perfect soft pearly white with sparse silver glitter. The glitter I could do without but there is just something special about this shade.

Products Used:
UDPP in Eden
UD Scratch (lid)
UD Polyester Bride (highlight)
UD Ransom (crease)
L'oreal Telescopic liquid liner
Hard Candy Sparkle Grey liquid liner

Tarte Clean Slate face primer
Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse
Revlon Photoready powder
MAC Sweetness blush

Orly Coquette Cutie, Ancient Jade, Pure Porcelain

I loved these colors together so I had to figure out a way to wear them all, since I couldn't decide between them. I used Orly Pure Porcelain as a base, on all nails I layered Coquette Cutie and my highlight nails are topped with Ancient Jade.

Quick and Lazy FOTD

On my days off I really don't want to do my makeup. When I have to work spending my time carefully applying and thinking things out is a treat but on my entirely free days? That time is precious. But I still will trudge up some effort if I'm going to have to run loads of chores. Here is a quick one I did using my Milani brow kit (that would be this one- in medium).

I really like this kit because it includes a small angled brush that is not so bad other than being teeny, a mini pair of tweezers, a sponge tipped applicator (okay, I've never used that one), 2 brow colors AND my favorite part! A highlighter! It's a very light champagne and an almost glowy kind of shimmer. That means with the right brushes you can do your brows, eyes and highlight the face if you want to.

In this look I used the highlighter all over my lid up to my crease. Then I applied the lighter brow shade in the crease and blended it out really well. The darker shade I used to lightly line my eyes.

I used a quick brush of Mary Kay mineral powder to even out my skin and reduce shine and added a little Jane Blushing Baby Doll blush. To finish it off I very lightly applied NYX Honey round lipstick.

I do suppose my "quick" look isn't very quick, this maybe took me 10 minutes. I personally feel that I don't look "complete" wearing just mascara or just eye makeup.

Products Used:
UDPP in Eden
Milani brow kit in Medium
Maybelline Great Lash BIG

Mary Kay mineral powder foundation

NYX Honey lipstick

What is your "quick" or "lazy" look?

To celebrate Memorial Day I went to a barbecue with friends and decided to get a little bit glammed up. However, I didn't have much time to snap photos and decided to do it in the car. And then realized my dslr is too large to operate in my friends Jetta (I have an old van- plenty of room) so I couldn't get any good pictures so I apologize for the crap quality of these!

Products used:
UDPP in Eden
Manly 120 palette (just white all over and silver in the crease)
L'oreal Telescopic liquid liner
Wet n Wild Holographic glitter (inner corner, because I wanted a little more glam, didn't quite work out like I pictured it but oh well)
Sally Girl glitter glue gel

Mary Kay mineral powder foundation
MAC Highland Honey blush

As for the lips...I really layered them and didn't pay attention to what I used. I used a red: tint, liner, balm, lipstick, hint o' gloss. I really wanted these to stay! I still would have been better off with plain ol' MAC Russian Red.

Orly Pure Porcelain & SH Distressed Denim crackle

I fell in love when I saw Pure Porcelain. In bottle this is just ever so softly off-white. On the nail it pulls slightly pink. Love-love-love. But of course, I didn't want to keep it too simple so I added a couple of crackle nails.

After my review of Sally Hansen's crackle in Fuchsia Shock I was ready to not try the other colors at all. But I ended up getting suckered into the blue- Distressed Denim. What can I say, I love crackle! I already missed out on the China Glaze crackles (which it seems I will never get my hands on :( ) so I gave it another go. This is the only time I've tried it so I can't give a full review. I did try it over a pale color and on the thumb it does look slightly sheer. I might go ahead and do another ghetto card of swatches to see how this works. All the other issues I complained about in my review of Fuchsia Shock are still there, especially the wonky brush.

How do you like Pure Porcelain? To pale for your taste or are you loving the white nail trend?

What color would you like to see topped with Distressed Denim?

A Feminine FOTD, mismatched earrings and my Bioshock tattoo

Today's post is a lil of this, lil of that. First I'll share my 'feminine' FOTD. I don't usually do soft colors but I absolutely love this pastel purple shade.

I have trouble sometimes with hitting my lid with my mascara brush. I've been using the Lash Blast BIG and yes, that brush is BIG.
I started off wearing Snob on my lips...
...and then topped it with Toxic Tale when I decided it was TOO much pastels.

Products Used:
UDPP in Eden
Manly 120 palette (all eyeshadow)
Milani brow kit
L'oreal Telescopic liquid liner
Urban Decay Zero shadow (over liquid liner)
Maybelline Great Lash BIG

Tarte Clean Slate face primer
Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse foundation (mix of shades light 1 and 5)
Mary Kay mineral powder foundation in Light
MAC Sweetness blush

MAC Snob lipstick
MAC Toxic Tale lipstick

I have recently been buying a lot of earrings on eBay, I picked up these cute mismatched spoon and fork ones a couple of weeks ago. I think they are so cute! Would you ever wear mismatched earrings?

And here is my newest tattoo, my Big Daddy. I can't wait to go back and get him filled in with color :) BTW, it's really hard to take photos of the back of your leg- even with a remote and tripod. And especially in heels.

This entire leg (instead of a sleeve I'm going to be doing a "legging" as we've termed it) is going to be game themed tattoos, I already have a Silent Hill one on my inner ankle...which I never posted photos of (maybe when I post this one all colored in). This is my biggest piece so far and I love him. His name is Roy :D

Cerulean FOTD

Really struggling for names here!

I really loved this combo, they are nice and vivid colors from the manly 120 palette. I also patted on some of the blue over some white liner on my waterliner- lasts all day! But I have to be very careful because I don't want to get it in my eyes D:

Products used which I remember:
Manly 120 palette- all shadow
UDPP in Eden
Maybelline Great Lash BIG
Lip Fusion- this is a weird white shade but I can't find it to tell you a name :(
Milani brow kit
L'oreal telescopic liquid liner


Skittle mani with Sinful Innocent, Unicorn, Hazard & Savage

These colors are fabulous. I was checking out the display I noticed there were quite a few awesome colors that I had never seen before. So I picked out:
Unicorn- banana cream
Hazard- Hot coral pink cream
Innocent- Pastel lime green cream (pastel lime? Yeah, I guess)
Savage- Nearly neon blue cream

I've bought another 4 and there are at least another few I haven't heard of. Are these new shades? Have any of you heard of them or have any idea when they came out?
I am more and more impressed with Sinful. The first photo is taken after four days of wear- working everyday. I topped it with OPI Black Shatter for an extra 2 day wear before I was so sick of it!

Essie Braziliant + fruit slices!

As soon as I saw the ad for Brazilant I knew I had to have it. Speaking of, I am totally loving their ads lately- including the one for this featuring Braziliant in all it's pure gorgeous shimmering color coating a seashell- google it if you haven't seen (I don't like hotlinking!). This is a gorgeous red-orange with slight pink undertones. Not neon, but packs a punch. I can't wait to wear this on my toesies this summer!
I decided to top them with a little something- some fruit fimo slices and some of those little metal bullion beads in a fuchsia-red. Sadly, I ended up "sliding" the polish on my pointer when I put them on so it got a little messy :( I also still can't get fimo slices to work for me, I think my nails are just too curved and not that the slices were cut too thick like I had thought. The beads I'm not sure if I could get to stay any longer than a couple hours before they started popping off, and they were well embedded in my
top coat- I made sure of that.
Really, I'm just kind of frustrated with all nail art other than simple polish designs. Guess it's a good reason to practice!

Braziliant can be found anywhere Essie is sold, including most major drug stores and Walmart.

Alright, I've googled but I'm really bad at all things even closely related to html. Can someone please help me learn how to make a blogger jump/cut? I've been trying for a while- I know all the images on my front page must slow it down!
