So in this brighter look on the inner corner of my lid I'm wearing MAC's Gorgeous Gold, blending outwards is MAC's Fab&Flashy which is an orange frost and on the outer corner is a fun red from a brand called Faces. I have MAC's Naked Lunch on the inner tear duct and for highlight, and MAC's fluidline blacktrack liner on lash line and water line. Gorgeous Gold and Fab&Flashy are also under neath the lower lashes. My boyfriend wanted me to do a look inspired by fire and he gave me an example of red on the inner corner fading out to orange and yellow. I thought about it and decided on this combo instead.

Haha again as you can probably tell this was late one night and apparently I didn't realize the state of my hair when taking the pictures! Please excuse!
Pair these lips with Peroxide lipglass from the Blonde Brunette Redhead collection for the perfect intense Barbie lip!

I wore Mac Wood Winked, Mac Handwritten, Mac Carbon, Mac fluideline gel eyeliner in blacktrack, and Dior show mascara in Backstage 090. On my skin I had a little bit of Bare Minerals in Medium Tan.
I'm not in love with my skin right now. I need to dedicate more time to get perfect skin. I only wash my face once a day.. maybe I should start a better night time routine. Right now I use a Neutrogena daily exfoliating cleanser and lots of moisturizer. I have scars on my chin too that I would like to make disappear. I'm thinking about trying Mederma. I will update with that progress.

I think that the outcome looks like a more wearable version of this look from MAC for their Barbie collection:
So these pictures were taken at 5am haha, I have issuses with sleep. The colours didn't show up as bright as they were in person. Anyways, I used MAC's paint in Untitled for a base, then a mix of MAC's Orb and Bitter on the lid, MAC Handwritten for a dramatic crease and along lower lash line, MAC Dollymix blush above crease and blended into Naked Lunch for a highlight. Liner was MAC fluidline in blacktrack. Diorshow Backstage mascara and Ardell lashes in 116 on lashes, Bare Minerals foundation in Medium Tan, Dollymix and Blunt on cheeks. I used MAC Magenta lip liner and for the lip colour I used a mix of MAC Gladiola and Cream Cup with Peroxide lipglass over top.
I really like how the lips turned out. I was aiming for the colour on the first inspiration picture and I think I was pretty successful. This was a really fun look to do, and it makes me want to do more themed looks! I was thinking Disney Princesses? I dunno! Some night when I can't sleep I'm sure I will make up my mind. Hope you enjoy! :)

Turned Up Turquoise neon (it's not that neon.. and it has a really dull finish, its interesting but I like a top coat on it):
Cherry Pie (Red with pretty pinky sparkles):
Thataway (peachy orange):
Golden Meringue (very sheer, but when the light hits it right theres a really pretty golden colour, I really like this colour actually):

This look I did because I wanted to play with some very much neglected blue eyeshadow I have.
Featured in this look: MAC Aquadisiac e/s in and above crease, MAC Satelite Dreams e/s all over lid, MAC ORB e/s to blend out the blue and act as a bit of a highlight, MAC blacktrack fluidline, Diorshow Backstage mascara 090, and a mix of an ashy and light brown colour to fill eyebrows. I used Bare Minerals foundation in Light
Don't I look tough? Haha, Alright so in this look I can tell that I used from the Dior 5 palatte in 030 the lightest colour for highlight and inner corner, I used MAC Orb e/s for all over the lid, some MAC Soba e/s crease action, a little touch of MAC Shale e/s and MAC Knight Divine in the outer corner. I used MAC fluideline in blacktrack, and Diorshow backstage makeup (it's my fav mascara of all time). Foundation was MAC Studio Fix (I don't remember the shade) and it looks like I'm wearing blush in Sweet As Cocoa.
So those are some old looks, I will be posting some more new and old looks. You can tell which ones are new because I'm so much darker now haha. I also want to talk about some brushes that I came across, and my technique with lipstick. So watch out for that! :)

I fell in love with a Dior lip gloss, which then led me to fall in love with a Dior 5 eyeshadow palette (neutral haha go figure). I heard about MAC here and there, then when I found out that the city I was going to for school had a store I was really excited. I started a quad and was hooked for life. I think my first colour was Stars n' Rockets.
I started watching YouTube videos of girls doing tutorials on makeup, and makeup hauls about one year ago. I found myself lost in the videos for hours at a time. It all started with Lorraine Stanick's The Current Custom, and KandeeTheMakeupArtist. I love those girls and feel like they are friends even though they have no idea who I am haha. They have blogs, and I was like - Why don't I start one? So that brings me here, no formal training but a passion none the less.
I plan on posting some of my collection, any new hauls, my reviews on certain products and of course makeup looks that I've done. I hope you enjoy! So stay tuned!! :)
