Formal Look Take #1

My sorority's formal is next Saturday and I decided to experiment with my makeup for it. My dress is a medium-hot pink with black. So I thought a nice pink-smokey black would be appropriate. I also had seen xsparkage on YouTube Midnight Barbie look that was hot pink and black so that was my inspiration along with the dress. I don't know yet if this is the actual look I'm going to do, so comments are welcomed! I think I went a bit overboard with the wing tips at the end of my eyes, but like I said I was merely experimenting. Also, I'll probably do fake lashes with this look to give it an extra something. As you can see, I have recently gotten into fake lashes and have fallen in love with them! Oh and don't judge my hair, I've been sick and haven't wanted to mess with it.

Old Hollywood Glamour

Ok so my university hosted a "Prom Party" two weeks ago and yes I'm completely swamped and had no time to put this look up. However, now that I'm sick and bored and awake there is no time like the present to add some looks. By the way, it's my BIRTHDAY!!! I'm old.

Anyways, the eyes I did with my usual MAC Satin Taupe and NARS Night Breed night look. But I did add some flash lashes! The big number in this look is the red, red lips. I was going for a "Old Glamour Hollywood" look and I liked the turn out of it. I hope you all do too. Enjoy!

Rimmel Lip Pencil in Lavish--First outline your lips, defining the cupid's bow. Then color in your lips with the pencil.
AllthatGlitters Gloss in Bitten-- Swipe on using a brush after you put color all over, take a concealer brush and concealer and outline your lips. This will make the lips look extra defined and prevent any bleeding of the color.
**Also before you apply the lip liner put concealer all over your lips for added protection.

Hot Contact

The things you find when randomly shopping. So I had the opportunity to go the Cosmetics Company Store with a sorority sister who got to witness my addiction with make up. Love you Kelsi! While I was there I picked up the amazing MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow called Hot Contact. Now, I'm not a very big fan of their mineralized products, I consider myself more of a traditionalist and I don't like a lot of colors swirled about. However, this one caught my attention. It had red in it! And we all know how much I love red eyeshadows! So I picked it up. After having used it I am quite pleased with the results. So I might just in the future by inclined to purchase more of these mineralized colors.

New Releases!
MAC released their Dazzleglass lipglosses this past Tuesday in 18 amazing colors, they actually weren't suppose to be released until April 30th but hey earlier is always better. I hope to pick a couple for myself to try out. Also don't forget the "Rose Romance" collection will be out April 23rd with some new spring colors! This collection I am definitely saving up for. Alright well back to my "Hot Contact" look, hope you enjoy!

Deep Ocean Blue

For the longest time I have been wanting to do a dark blue smokey eye. However, being such a dark color was too intimidated to try it before an actual event/party, so tonight I experimented with some colors and I must say I am quite please with the overall look. Hope you enjoy it as well!

Even though the weather keeps going from lovely warm back to awful cold again, I was inspired to do a spring look. Especially with my massive haul from Spell Cosmetics. Therefore, in using their new spring collection I created a very colorful, delightful spring look. Enjoy!

New Month, New Hair Color

Yes, I went dark again. I said I wanted the darkest brown next to black and I LOVE it! I'm also trying to grow out my hair fairly long. We'll see how that goes.

Black Cherries

Sorry it's been awhile, with school and sorority stuff it has been hectic these past couple weeks. However, while getting ready for class I was able to do a look. It's pretty natural, school appropriate, so not too dark. Hope you enjoy!
