Platinum and Dark Purple Eyes



For me, silver is a bit like dark green or teal. I just don't wear it. I do though, love silver. It's a beautiful color. After having MAC's Platinum pigment for months now, I decided that I should actually step out of my safe little box and give it a try. Using my own advice (pairing colors you don't like with others that you do) I was able to make the pigment work for me and I loved it.

For those of you thinking of getting your hands on Platinum pigment as well, be warned, it is the messiest pigment ever. Gorgeous...but messy. Upon opening the jar, pigment tends to go airborne so be careful...and 99% of the time, you'll get pigment on your hands just from opening the jar. On the plus side, very VERY little goes a long way.

Purple and Copper Eyes Inspired by Nikkie Tutorials



Ever since I saw Nikkie Tutorials' Youtube video for this look, I had to give it a try. I thought it was gorgeous and I still definitely love it.

Plus, Nikkie is amazing! If you're on Youtube and haven't subscribed to her channel yet I highly recommend it. She's adorable, hilarious, and so incredibly talented. A 15 year old that can do makeup like she does, and so much more? Come on...you gotta love her!

Red and Purple Smokey Eye using Heritage Rouge Pigment



When MAC re-released Heritage Rouge pigment, my love of it was rekindled. It is the most most gorgeous, deep-warm red. Paired with a deep plum it created a smoldering smokey eye that I love. I barely ever repeat eye looks, except for the very simple and quick ones, but I've done this a few times already.

Review: Nail Couture - Zebra Tipped False Nails



I wanted to give my zebra printed artificial nails from Nailene a try. I absolutely loved the design; very cute! Nailene actually has a good variety of nail designs. Tina Marie Online recently did a post using nails with blue glitter tips.

Teal and Brown Eyes



One of the looks for the Become.com article for my Top 5 Eye Shadows for Fall, this look actually features one of my least favorite colors to wear...teal! I've never liked it on me, but through a little experimenting I found that if I use it in moderation and pair it with colors that I do like, it completely changes up my dislike. I surprisingly loved how this look turned out. Plus, I've seen so much teal this year at stores like Macy's, so I'm glad I was able to find a way to make it work.

So, a little tip for you. If you think you can't wear a certain color, pair a little of it with colors that you love wearing, and you may be surprised!

Swatches and (quick) Review: Barbie Loves Stila Smudge Pots



Barbie loves Stila and I can definitely see why! These are the first Smudge Pots I've tried and I think they're wonderful. Great color payoff and GREAT staying power. These Smudge Pots are classified as eyeliners more so than bases but can be used as both. As a base, these are much like MAC Paintpots, but as eyeliners they are better than MAC Fluidline as they do not budge. I've actually applied them on my hand and tried rubbing them away...using my hand, nothing happened...using a washcloth and water, still nothing happened. I actually had to use my makeup remover to get them to come off.

NYX Jumbo Pencil Swatches



If you don't have any NYX Jumbo Pencils yet, I highly suggest you pick up a few. They make amazing colored bases. They do however crease, but if applied sparingly, or over an eye primer, the creasing is prevented. I've yet to have a problem with creasing myself, as I apply it over Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

Available at NYXCosmetics.com, in Ulta stores, CherryCulture.com (which is where I got mine), and other select stores (see the NYX website for locations).

Green Eyes featuring Jesse's Girl



I've had my Jesse's Girl makeup for a while but I just haven't used it very much basically because I've had a hard time with the Eye Dusts. While they are afforable they don't necessarily have the best color payoff. However, I recently got a ton of new NYX jumbo pencils in all different colors and to put them to the test, I paired them with some Jesse's Girl Eye Dusts and ta da! I loved it! The two together made for a gorgeous look.

Expect swatches of all my NYX jumbo pencils as well as some from Jesse's Girl coming soon!
