Shimmery Fall Inspired Eyes





The look I wore for Thanksgiving; taking inspiration from the gold, bronzes, and oranges of fall with the shimmer just for the holiday. My bronzed orange lips were MAC's Jist lipstick topped with a touch of Pinkular Lipglass which is just a gorgeous color.

Senna Cosmetics for the Lips and Cheeks (Swatches and Review)

You've seen Senna Cosmetics' lovely eyeshadows and brow products. Now it's time for some lips and cheeks!



Sheer Lipstick in Nova and Cream Lipstick in Heartbreaker

These two lipsticks are just love. Very moisturizing yet long lasting, and the most lovely colors. Heartbreaker is amazingly pigmented while Nova is the perfect sheer for when you just want a touch of color on your natural days.

Mint Blue and Brown Eyes featuring Senna Cosmetics





Done with the lovely Gemstones Trio from Senna Cosmetics, this look is both wearable and dramatic with the added touch of winged liner. It can be toned down a bit by smudging a dark brown liner along the base of your lashes rather than doing the wing. These shadows though, are wonderful.

The lips, cheeks, and brows are also by Senna Cosmetics.

Senna Cosmetics for the Eyes and Brows (Swatches and Review)

Time for some eyeshadow and brow products from Senna!



Eye Color Trios in Glamour Eyes and Gemstones

With 3 full sized eyeshadows in a gold palette (with an inside mirror) there are so many possibilities. These shadows are soft, smooth, incredibly pigmented, and last literally all day. Definitely some of the highest quality eyeshadows I've ever tried.

Senna Cosmetics Preview




I was recently given the opprotunity to try this amazing line created by Emmy Award nominated makeup artist and brow expert, Eugenia Weston. Senna Cosmetics is actually used by top TV and film artists and seen on hit shows including 'Heroes' and 'Ugly Betty'.

I am seriously in awe of this brand. It's remarkable. Very high quality in all aspects of the line that I've tried so far.

Here is a sneak peak of the upcoming reviews and swatches you'll see from this line. There are a few looks coming up too!

Purple, Pink, and Orange Eyes





This look was one of my very first Youtube tutorials that I posted early last year and I've yet to redo it til now. I've been wanting to for a while because I love it, so it was definitely time! It's kind of a smokey purple with a bright twist to it...and fairly easy as far as blending the colors goes. It was just about layering.

I'll be doing a post on Beauty Tip post on blending soon!

**Note: I used MAC's LE Top Hat eyeshadow for this look. The perfect dupe for it would be Urban Decay's Deluxe Eyeshadow in Frigid.**

Chocolate Brown Smokey Eyes



This simple yet eye-catching brown smokey eye was part of my Top 5 Eyeshadows for Fall post for Become.com. I only used 2 main colors: Chocoholic by Glamour Doll Eyes, and MAC's Ricepaper to highlight. Chocoholic is a stunning color.

Simple "Everyday" Look and New Glasses



No...I don't wear prescription glasses. I do however, love the look of them. I have a few pairs but these are the newest. I got them at Torrid; they have a great variety of clear lensed glasses for anyone else who may like them like I do but doesn't necessarily need to wear them.

With glasses, I tend to go neutral and simple on the eyes with bold colored lips. For me, black rimmed glasses and red lips is the most classic look there is. This time though, I paired my simple eyes with natural liptoned products for an "everyday" look.

MAC Lipgloss Swatches



Dazzleglass, Cremesheen, Glimmerglass, Lustreglass, and Lipglass swatches.
