Olive Green Eyes featuring Lorac

Something I've been doing a lot lately is using one color all the way around my eye, pairing it with my go-to crease/transition color, and matte highlight. It's quick and easy for my workdays when I'm up at 5:15am. This time I used the most perfect olive green ever from the Lorac TANtalEYES palette I ordered from Hautelook.

Sugarpill ♥ | Haul and Swatches

I'm pretty sure that I was the only person in the makeup universe that's never tried Sugarpill...until now that is. I was able to get a few things that I'm been lemming for since forever, and I'm so glad I did. Sugarpill is definitely the awesome brand that people keep saying it is.

Requested Colors - Cranberry, Bronze, and Purple feat. Glamour Doll Eyes

This gorgeous color combination featuring Glamour Doll Eyes was requested by one of my lovely Facebook followers. She really did choose a beautiful trio of colors which allowed me to use three of my favorite GDE shadows (especially Tabloid - on my lid - if you don't have it, you should!). This look brings together some smokiness with a touch of brightness; perfect for fall!

Swatches and Thoughts: e.l.f. 100 Piece Eyeshadow Palette

100 eyeshadows for $10? Yes. Please.

And what's awesome is that these eyeshadows are actually really nice. Granted some of them aren't; some are sheer, disappear during blending, and straight just don't show up, but overall, this palette is fabulous. I'd say that about 90% or more of the palette is made up of some gorgeously pigmented shadows. Plus I love the mixture of neutrals and brights, shimmers and mattes. The packaging is cute too. I'm loving the clear flip-top lid that let's me see the rainbow of colors.


Available on the e.l.f. website, and at Target stores.

Smokey Pink and Blue Eyes

Beautiful brights slightly smoked out done with none other than the e.l.f. Studio Endless Eyes Pro Eyeshadow Palette. $10 for 100 shadows that look this pigmented? LOVE. This palette is just amazing.

I'll have swatches posted soon!
