Brown-Eyed Girl from Glamour Doll Eyes

Browns and purples are always gorgeous on brown eyes, which is part of why I love Glamour Doll's Brown-Eyed Girl so much. It's a cross between the two. So perfect.

This look is all Glamour Doll Eyes; Brown-Eyed Girl, Angel Wings, and All Nighter, all from my latest sponsorship haul.

Smokey Brown using the Too Faced Natural Eye Kit

Nothing incredible exciting and I'm pretty certain I've posted similar looks before, if not exact, but oh well :) I did this look when I worked a Too Faced event last weekend. A simple smokey eye but I definitely love the colors that come in the Natural Eye Kit; incredibly versatile and easy to go from natural to dark and dramatic. For me, this look is somewhere in between.

Bright Pink Nails with a Little Zebra Print

Another nail art post for you! I used mostly Zoya polishes again. I just adore them!
I actually wanted to do this to my nails because it matches two of my favorite purses, and my blog :) Haha!

Purple Eyes (120 Palette)

For this look, I basically used 2 colors; a neutral and a bright purple. Also, I used a purple base, only on the lid to change the tone of the eyeshadow a bit, which helped the purple blend up into a slightly more pinked shade. It was a super easy look but so vibrant. The 120 palette (2nd edition) is full of so many possibilities!

Smoked-Out Gold and Pink Eyes

Copper, Plum, and Blue Eyes

This looks features both Too Faced and Harajuku Hunnies. The Natural Eye Palette from Too Faced and also their eyeshadow single in Socialite, with the addition of Harajuku Hunnies' gel liner in Oceanic made for an eye-catching look.

Zoya Nail Polish: Sienna

I've never really done nail polish posts before; maybe a few times but this is me officially starting something new on A Brilliant Brunette. Since I've been doing my nails a lot more recently and I have quite a few different polishes in some gorgeous colors, I figured I'd share them with you all, especially with the growing trend of nail art.

Shaded Orchid Eyes (feat. Glamour Doll)

Shaded Orchid, one of the colors from my Glamour Doll Eyes collection, is just gorgeous. For this look, I applied it wet, then buffed the same product, dry, over the top giving it a slightly different appearance than what it may usually look like.

Simple Sultry Smokey Eye feat. BFTE

Wizard's Wand from Beauty From The Earth (BFTE) is a gorgeous, dirty, warm silver with multicolored reflects in it. Definitely one of my favorites from them!

For this look I basically only used Wizard's Wand with my highlight color. However, for a base color, I used a gold gel liner to "tarnish" Wizard's Wand a bit. It brought out more of the warmness and turned it to more of a gold. I loved the outcome.

Golden Pop of Color

This look is much like my recent look with a touch of mint green. This time though I used a touch of gold for that pop of color. You might be able to tell that this type of look with just a touch of color is one of my current favorite :)

So first, the swatches.

Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner Swatches

My 24/7 eyeliner collection

For those of you not familiar with the 24/7 eyeliners from Urban Decay, they are phenomenal. Such gorgeous colors, some with a touch of glitter, with incredible staying power. They go on creamy and smooth yet set with an amazing staying power. It takes about 30-60 seconds for these liners to set, which allows for smudging if desired. In fact, they're so creamy and pigmented that they can be used as cream eyeshadows and colored eyeshadow bases.

They're my all time favorite eyeliners!
