Aromaleigh Pandora

Pandora is such a subtle and lovely color.  Sometimes the softer looks are my favorites.  Here is what I wore to my nephews first birthday party.

NYX Jumbo Pencil- Oyster from lashes to crease
Aromaleigh Pandora patted over the oyster pencil (A soft whisper of pinked mauve with silvery highlight)
Aromaleigh Grape to Outer V and along lower lash line(A luscious deep purple shade, for a dramatic look)
Ben Nye Toast on brow bone (matte off white) 
NYX Barely There to highlight brow and inner corners
 Ben Nye Cake Liner- black

Lips are Rimmel East End Snob liner and NYX Beige Gloss
Cheeks are NYX Peach

HiFi Pixies


I have the day off today and it is beautiful out!  I'm heading over to my parents to relax by the water and eat some good food. :)

NYX Jumbo Pencil- Milk applied lightly all over lid
HiFi Pixies patted on outer 2/3 of lid (PIXIES is a bright, iridescent purple! Lots of glitz...just like a vision of pixie dust!)
HiFi Let it Snow on inner 1/3 of lid (LET IT SNOW reminds me of stepping outside first thing in the morning, after it has snowed all night, and seeing the crystalline blanket of snow glittering in the sun. This color is super sparkly and absolutely amazing!)
MUFE #92 outer edge of lid and into crease (matte vibrant purple)
NYX Black to deepen outer V and along lower lashline (matte black)
Revlon Matte Antique Lace on brown bone (matte off white)
Ben Nye Cake Liner- black

Blush is Revlon Matte- Peach
Lips are NYX Beige

Thanks for looking!

Gold and Teal

Hello all!

Just got back from a work thing-y in Philadelphia, so I am a bit tired from the long drive.  Was a cool couple of days and I won a raffle for the "next android phone from Motorola".  It is unreleased so I just got a certificate saying that I will be sent one when available.  Pretty cool!
Anyway, this was the look I wore on Wednesday when I left my house to head down to Philly.

I used:
Indelible Cream Shadow- Bare Necessity as base
MAC Gorgeous Gold all over lid (applied with Sigma 239) (gold with green duochrome)
MAC Too Dolly in crease with MAC 224 (light blue/teal with some frost)
MAC Plumage to Deepen outer corners with small dense crease brush, also along lower lashline (matte blackened teal)
Ben Nye Toast on browbone  with NYX large shader brush (matte off white)
Ben Nye cake liner in black

Lips are Rimmel Tiramisu liner with NYX Beige gloss
Cheeks are NYX Peach

HiFi Rockstar Shadows

I have been kinda MIA lately, just so much going on with work and life.  I will try and catch up on all of your posts and comments soon!!

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!  I love my newest HiFi purchases!  I took advantage of their sale on the new rockstar shadows and I am so glad I did.  These shadows are amazing, packed with tons of glitter and are really nicely pigmented.  Used atop their new shadow fix, the shadows really look like glimmering liquid metal.  Yum!

The Hi Impact Shadow fix really rocks and I would imagine that it compares to Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy though I have never tried it.  HiFi describes it as- Specifically formulated to be used with all my super-shimmery, mega-glittery Rockstar and Hi Fi shadows, this product can actually be used with any loose or pressed shadow! (Not recommended for mattes.) It's glycerin-based, contains soothing aloe vera, and it ROCKS at holding those sparklies on! 

I applied it to the lid just up to the crease, and spread it out to a very thin layer.  I allowed it to get slightly dry and tacky and patted the rockstar shadow on top.  I used no other primer (as my UDPP is all dried out) and I had no problem with creasing or fading- even after a nap!

I used:
HiFi On Tour patted on top of shadow fix, just up to crease (ON TOUR is the goldest gold we have! This shadow looks like liquid metal on the lids, flecked with intense golden glimmers! Photos cannot do this shade justice!!!)
Ben Nye Terracotta blended into crease with MAC 224 (matte midtone warm brown)
NYX Black blended into outer corners and along lower lashline (matte black)
Ben Nye Toast on brow bone (matte off white)

Cheeks are MAC The Perfect Cheek and a bit of MSF soft and gentle as highlight.  NYX Taupe to contour.

Dramatic Greens w/120 Palette


Here is yesterday's look using colors from my 120 palette.  I used UDPP and NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk as base.  From the palette I used a couple (3 or 4) of matte greens, matte white and a matte black.  I also used a shimmery yellowy green on the lower inner lashline.

My Cheeks are MAC The Perfect Cheek
