The Lush Tropics

•••
When NARS had their 17% off sale, one of the items I snagged was their eye shadow in Tropic.  I decided it needed to be paired up with Illamasqua's Bronx, another shade I recently acquired. This look really needed more of a transitional shade where Tropic meets Bronx. I think an iridescent gold would have worked nicely. Additionally, while Tropic is gorgeous[...]

Burnished Silver

•••
This is more the look that I meant to do last week. I put Meow's Psychic on my lid for a silvery white effect and Darling Girl's Mr. Ed in the crease for a coppery peach. This was very simple to do. First I started with TFSI. Then I used a fluffy brush to apply Psychic to the lid. I used an angled crease brush to apply Mr. Ed to the crease. With a hig[...]

Healthy Glow

•••
Today's look didn't turn out quite the way I wanted it to. Now I've got ideas on how to try this again. I was going for a white gold on the lid and mixed a few shades and it was still too much of a pale gold shade. I do love how Astral Ways worked as a cheek highlighter and on the browbone. I started with TFSI. Then I applied Indianwood to the lid. Ne[...]

Visiting Versailles

•••
I absolutely adore Versailles. It's gorgeous. And I think it looks gorgeous on the lid. I used TFSI as a base. Then I put Versailles on the lid and crease, except for the outermost corner of the lid and crease with a taklon lid brush. I took Damask and used an angled eye shadow brush to apply it to the lower lash line, extending the line up and out fo[...]

Bronzed

•••
Today I participated in the Relay for Life Cancer walk with friends. I wanted to wear makeup that wouldn't budge, and that was fairly simplistic. I applied TFSI, then took a concealer brush and applied MAC paint pot in Indianwood to the lid and crease, blending out the upper edge of color. I took the Estee Lauder shadowstick in Bronze and applied it to the o[...]

Baked Vanilla Nudes Look

•••
I couldn't wait to try out the Laura Geller Baked Vanilla Nudes set. I really love Vanilla Toffee, as it's one of those awesome shades that looks like you're wearing 3 colors at once. I put it on my lid and crease and it gave me a very multi-dimensional look with a deeper copper-bronze, a mid-tone of caramel and a highlight of vanilla. Speaking of Vanilla, t[...]

Reader Request - Bronze Look

•••
This look is from a Reader Request. One of my lovely readers asked for a look for a wedding that would go with a maroon dress, so this is the eye look I came up with. I absolutely love Half-Baked and really should use it more often. Every time I wear the color I feel like it looks elegant. I used SMH's Dominatrix with it, which is a brownish-burgundy shade w[...]
