Smokey Coral Eyes | Too Faced Summer Eyes Palette



So, I'm still loving the Too Faced Summer Eyes Palette. I've been so busy wearing the colors in this palette,I totally forgot to do swatches for you all! It's definitely on the agenda though.

For those of you who missed it, here's the Colorful Summer Eyes look I did.

Colorful Summer Eyes | Too Faced Summer Eyes Palette



It's pretty obvious how much I love Too Faced so it's no surprise that I've totally flipped over their new Summer Eyes Palette. It has the most perfect summer eyeshadows ever. Seriously. Warm and bright, but not too bright...so wearable. It's just total perfection. For this look I used quite a few of the colors...I just couldn't help it. It's one of my favorite looks to date! Enjoy! :)

Q & A with Jerrod Blandino, Founder of Too Faced Cosmetics



As some of you know, I was the Too Faced Beauty Blogger of the Month for April. I was totally thrilled and still am. Part of the perks of being the BBOM is the opportunity to interview Jerrod Blandino, one of Too Faced's founders. Can I just say that I adore him?

Smokey Deep Pink Eyes



MAC eyeshadows in Hepcat and Shadowy Lady, with Aquavert in the crease. Yes...Aquavert...a limited edition, totally gorgeous, glowing mint green...and it didn't even photograph! Oh well...I wanted to share anyway. Just know that the mint green looked super pretty with the pink. Haha! :)

Senna Cosmetics Mod Muse Eyeshadows | Swatches and Thoughts



This summer Senna Cosmetics brings us Mod Muse, a collection that founder Eugenia Weston says was inspired by the 1960's. I have quite a few products to share with you and to start, here are the soft, gorgeous Mod Muse eyeshadows. I've said it once, possibly a few times, and I'll continue to say it: Senna's eyeshadows are total perfection. The quality of their shadows is unmatched by any other brand I've tried, and the ones accompanying the Mod Muse collection are no exception.

Bright Blue Lined Eyes | wet n wild and INGLOT



I do this look a lot. A LOT. Adding that pop of bright blue is one of my favorite things to do with my makeup. Sometimes it's along my bottom lashline. Sometimes it's just a touch on my lid; and sometimes it's electric blue winged liner like I did for this look (wet n wild Indigo Blue). Also, I typically stick with warm neutrals, but this time I decided to go with cooler tones with my INGLOT shadows.

Bold Blues and Teals featuring Sugarpill Cosmetics



Something BOLD, something new, something....borrowed? No...not borrowed. But it's definitely blue :)

Three of the most stunning blue and teal loose eyeshadows were used to create this eye-catching look. It was more bold than what I'm currently used to at the moment but it was tons of fun to wear. I love me some Sugarpill! I kept my lips and cheeks understated for this look to keep the attention on my eyes.
