Alice in Chaos-fotd

For this look I wanted to try something softer with a more rounded edge. I took the shape idea from Robyn and Mandy whose perfectly blended looks always catch my attention. This look was lots of fun to do and despite the fact that the liner is a lot thicker then my usual it looks really nice with the rounded shape.

What I Used:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Aromaleigh e/s in Another Alice (A blue laced teal patted on the lid.)
Aromaleigh e/s in Curiouser and Curiouser (A pastel grape swept in the crease in a c shape. I also used this along the lower lash line, blending it into the pink color.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Chaotic Evil (A light but bright pink patted on the inner corner of the lid.)
Darling Girl e/s in Buddy Blue ( A sheer but beautiful white/blue used on the brow bone.)
Tarte gel eyeliner in black
Urban Deca 24/7 eyeshadow pencil in Clash
Tarte Lights! Camera! Lashes!

lips-Wet n Wild Mega Shield lip color in Within These Adobe Walls

So my droogs, which shape do you prefer? This soft rounded shape or a feline-esque sharp shape?

Halloween Town-Experiment

I was challenged by my fiance to do a look using orange, purple and green. He picked the colors out of my extensive make-up collection himself and proudly handed them to me thinking I was defeated. This look took me about twenty minutes to do which was enough time for him to fall asleep. When I was able to wake him he mumbled something about the look having a Halloween feel, thus the non-summery name haha.

What I used:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Fyrinnae e/s in Pyromantic Erotica (Multi-hued orange that had a green and yellow shift patted on the lid.)
Sleek Bohemian palette (Plummy-violet used in the inner crease to add depth.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Sequined Master (Silvery twinkly purple blended all over the crease.)
Fyrinnae e/s in OMGWTF (Bright chartruese patted on the outer corner of the lower lid.)
Almay Liquid eyeliner in black
Nyx jumbo pencil in Milk (Waterline of course.)

Nyx round lipstick in Nyx (Bright orange-y coral.)

I've been doing the white waterline a lot this summer. It's a lot nicer then having black eyeliner gunk up into the corner of my eye making me look like a raccoon. Not to mention it makes my eyes look huge! What's your favorite make-up trick in the summer? My other favorite summer trick is just a tap of concealer around my nose, under my eye and along the discoloration on my chin. I still wear a primer so that it doesn't slip off and I can add cheek color if I feel it looks to blah. I'd love some more tips!

Noxious Placebo-fotd

Sounds like a name for a heavy metal band right?
I'm half sick of shadows, neutral ones, that is. I've been needing to do an insanely bright eye and lip combo for a while. I kind of slapped eyeshadow on willy-nilly hoping it'd turn into something beautiful. I rarely use black eyeshadow but with this look the eye felt to stark without a bit of depth. Sadly using my Sugarpill eyeshadows did not squelch my want for more. Curse you're perfect-ness Heartbreaker palette curse you!

What I used:

Nyx jumbo pencil in Milk (Used on the lid as a base and on the waterline.)
Sugarpill e/s in Midori (A bright blue based green somewhere between seafoam and clover patted on the lid.)
Darling Girl cosmetics e/s in Grasshopper (A matteish grasshopper green patted on the inner corner of the lid to create depth.)
Sugarpill e/s in Dollipop (A true bright a$$ pink used to create a cut crease.)
Too Faced Glamour-2-Go Dream Addition (Multi-colored sparkle laden matte black used on the outer crease.)
Sugarpill e/s in Tako (The whitest white around used to highlight the inner corner of the lid and the brow bone.)
Sugarpill e/s in Afterparty (A bright turquoise-ish blue swept along the lower lash line.)
Almay liquid eyeliner in black
Tarte Lights! Camera! Lahshes!
*Please note that I did use a Q-tip to clean up the look around the edges.

Oh man I have some reviews to write soon! Would you guys want to see a mascara review? Cause I really like the Tarte mascara I've been using for ages and feel like I have enough to say about it now. I hope you guys have a really great day and spend it with your Father's or your Father figures. I'm helping my Dad move a whole bunch of stuff around and then making something tasty on the grill.
See ya later!

Moondust Spirits-fotd

On certain nice days my friends and I declare a dress day. That means no matter where we are we wear dresses. Last Friday was dress day so I wore my favorite dress from Torrid. I did have an ootd planned but the pictures looked freakin' terrible. You couldn't see my shoes at all! Boo! Hopefully next time I wear the dress I can get better pictures. Oh and please excuse my bra peaking out in several pictures. I must have missed it when I was first taking pictures. Oh the duck lip pictures for Jerry who if you haven't seen her blog yet you are missing out.

What I used:

Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeshadow pencil in Sin
Darling Girl Diamond Dust in Moondust (Atomically shimmery biegey-taupe used on the lid.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Samhain Spirits (Gold infused coppery brown blended into the crease.)
Wet n Wild e/s palette in Vanity (Matte ivory used to highlight the brow bone.)
Too Faced Natural Eye palette (Silk teddy used over top the matte ivory.)
Almay liquid eyeliner in black
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Mildew (Used on the waterline.)
Sleek Bohemian palette (Shimmery olive patted over mildew.)

How's it Gonna Be?-fotd

I wore this on Saturday but I had to wash it off a few hours after put it on because of my eyes. It turns out the liquid eyeliner I'd been using had gone off. I didn't even know till I caught a whiff of it the next day. So gross. So. Gross. Ugh. I'm really sanitary when it comes to my make-up;I always check dates, never put water directly on to the products and I never let anyone use my eyeliner or mascara. Some how, some how this liner got past me. Blech. Aside from my "dramatic" eyeliner issue I've been pretty inspired make-up wise. I've started to play around with looks late in the night when I can't sleep. They come out crazy dramatic usually, I can't wait to post them!

What I used:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Darling Girl cosmetics e/s in Mayor's Daughter (Lovely intense gold patted onto the lid and blended into the crease lightly.)
Darling Girl cosmetics e/s in Making Merry (Rich berry red used in the crease.)
Wet n Wild eyeshadow palette in Vanity (Shimmery ivory used to highlight the browbone and inner corner of the eye.)
NYC Liquid Eyeliner (Used up finally!)
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Perversion
Tarte Lights! Camera! Lashes!

Wet n Wild lipstick in Light Biege Frost (Okay in real life this color is a gorgeous, it's like the Nars Orgasm of the lipstick world. This is my new favorite lippie.)

I have a few more looks lined up but I was thinking of writing a review. Who wants a Darling Girl swatchfest/review? Or maybe I should do a Femme Fatale cosmetics review...hmmm... choices... What do you guys think?

Bloopers-Unposted/Forgotten looks

Here are a whole bunch of looks I forgot to blog! I don't remember most of the products I used in these but if you ask maybe I can try to remember. Most of these are late night experiments created out of boredom. The last look is an attempt at a different shape. I'm not sure if it works for me but practice makes perfect!

*I did edit this pictures a bit and by edit I mean I made them a tad brighter

Have you seen The Avengers yet? I haven't! I loved Captain America, Thor, Iron Man and even one of the Hulk movies that no one seems to like. My favorite bad guy out of all the movies is Loki, not only is he adorable in an evil yet vulnerable kind of way but he's also all sorts of bad ass. I'm really excited that he's the bad guy in The Avengers I can't wait to see it. In the mean time I did a Loki inspired look. I wish I had used some Lady Loki inspo, in the comics Loki can turn from a man to a woman. A really really hot woman by the way.
In Nordic mythology Loki is the God of mischief. He's been known to cause trouble where ever he goes. He's killed a few ice giants and gods in his time and even mated with a horse. He's known to have a silver tongue able to talk anyone into anything. He's charming but damn is he tricky.

What I used:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy (Just a tad bit on the lid.)
Darling Girl e/s in Grasshopper (Matte-ish grass green used on the inner corner of the lid.)
Femme Fatale cosmetics e/s in Poison (Perfect chartreuse patted in the middle of the lid between the green and yellow to blend it better.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Bifrost (Bright yellow patted at the outer corner of the lid and blended into poison. The bifrost is the name of the bridge the gods use to cross worlds in Norse mythology. I had to use this!)
Sleek Bohemian palette (Matte navy blue used to create a cut crease that starts at the very edge of the lid.)
Femme Fatale cosmetics e/s in Riptide (Electric blue applied over the navy for added sparkle!)
Sleek Bohemian palette (Matte ivory used on the brow bone and used to blend out the crease.)
NYC liquid eyeliner in black
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeshadow pencil in Clash (Used on the waterline.)
Sugarpill e/s in Afterparty (A bright bright blue patted on the waterline over Clash.)
Tarte Lights! Camera! Lashes!

Rimmel lipstick in Kate 04
Max Factor random purple lipstick of awesome

Alrightie quick question, which camera do you prefer? The Rebel which I used in this post or the Nikon I used to use. The Rebel has better depth, is true color wise but is a pain in the butt to use for close up shots of the eye. My little Nikon is perfect for close up shots but doesn't always show the depth certain eyeshadows have. Which camera would you guys like to see me use?

Where the Hell Have You Been?

Wait, wait before you get the tomatoes out I can explain! For the past two months my life has been a roller coaster of ups and downs. My fiance and I broke up but quickly reunited after a twelve hour lapse in judgment. I was still a mess since I had a shit load of emotions to deal with and the fact that he moved into his own place. Then I went to Connecticut with Cassie for three weeks. I got to explore the "wilds" of Connecticut. Meet all of Cassie's friend's and family including her extended family which was very exciting. We even got to visit Salem, Mass where one of my ancestors, Giles Corey, was pressed to death during the Salem Witch Trials. (We have huge portraits of his parents hanging in our hallway.) I have loads of pictures if anyone is interested in me posting them.  I came back well rested, well read and bursting with make-up ideas. I feel like I've been in a funk for a year! Hopefully I'll be able to write more reviews, discuss some of my favorite products and force my friends into colorful make-up they'd never do on themselves.
So basically what I'm saying is I'm back!
