NYX Sale!

Hautelook is having a sale on NYX products including their jumbo eyeliner pencils, which if you haven't tried using them as an eyeshadow base, you definitely should. The Spider Web look I did just before Halloween used two of them. Also there are these super cute lipglosses that look like little pieces of fruit and little cupcakes! Seriously, they are so cute. Go get them.

Go Here: My Personal Invite

GlamourDoll Affiliate.

I am now affiliated with Glamourdolleyes. There's a link in the sidebar, please order through me so I can support my makeup addiction. :D

Favorite Products:
Seattle, of course! I am sure that if there was a shade for San Francisco it would be second. I also have a love for matte gray. Maybe I'm crazy, but I think it makes the best type of smokey eye.
Dream House I am not normally into pinks, but I really like the way this looks on the skin.

I quit my job at the bar, so I've had very little reason to do any crazy makeup. I'll try to do a look once a week at least. Check out the sidebar for a poll for makeup look ideas for the new year.

In other, completely unrelated news: Is it just me, or are there a very large number of Christian blogs on this site? I feel like every time I hit the "Next blog" button more than once I come across somebody extolling the joys of the Lord. I don't know whether it's bad or good, simply an observation. Just as long as they leave me be.

Lazy weekend, here I come!

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas came in the mail today! Look out weekend, Chris and I aren't going to be sleeping! I've never played it, he's super excited. By all accounts this is the greatest PS2 game ever made. WOOFUCKINGHOOO!!!!!

Spiderweb Eyes and Halloween

So here are a couple of pictures of my version of the Spiderweb tutorial by xsparkage:

And here is a picture that Chris and I took before we went out for Halloween. Because my dress is white and fits kind of awkwardly I think it makes me look more than a little chubby, but such is life. We looked super cute anyway!

His makeup took me an hour. I freaking hate making scars out of that stupid waxy-fibery stuff. It's terrible. Hint for next year though: It comes off super well with baby oil! Other than that I think I'm getting way better at contouring, if I had taken pictures of the following night, it was even better! When I have money I think I'm going to go to MAC and find a good contouring color for me. I have cheekbones hidden under here somewhere!

Makeup last Friday.

I'm starting to get better about this. Really I am. Last Friday I did a Purple and Lime Green look, which is one of my favorite color combinations. I want to do this look again, but next time I think I'm going to draw leopard print over the purple section. Anywho, here it is!

I am really happy with the way the eyes turned out. I only have 2 blushes so I can't really say anything about that.

For the lid:
UD Primer Potion
NYX Jumbo eyeliner in milk, blended out
Coastal Scents 88 Palette: Column 3 row 3 and 6 mixed together

For the crease:
I used an angled brush to outline a cut crease with SugarPill Poison Plum, then a pencil brush to drag it up and out to create the shape that I wanted.

For the browbone: I used SugarPill's Tako with a big fluffy brush to blend out Poison Plum and to highlight my brow bone

For the Tear Duct:
I used NYX Jumbo Eyeliner in milk, blended out with my finger, then I covered that using a pencil brush in ELF Mineral Eyeshadow in Angelic. I dragged it up into the inner crease, and along the edges of Poison Plum.

Those are my real lashes folks!

Foundation: Face and Body Foundation from MAC
Powder: Revlon Photoready in Translucent
Blush: Well Dressed from MAC

Again I didn't put anything on my lips for pictures. I wore a clear gloss because the eyes are so crazy.

I am making this face because my bangs are so long and I obviously need a goddamn haircut.
Unfortunately I can't cut my hair until after Halloween, Winona has long bangs in Edward Scissorhands, I'll curl them but they still need to be long.

God I am so excited for Halloween, maybe I'm making that face because I want it to be Halloween already. Today I am wearing this makeup by xsparkage. The only difference is that I used both a matte black and a sparkly black in Black Tied from MAC. It has silver sparkles and I love it. Lips in Lolita by Kat Von D.

Maybe I'll put pictures up... Dunno.


Oh my god. My house smells so good right now. I'm making Carrot Soup with Ginger and Lemonand Apple Dumplings. So the whole place smells like ginger, lemon, sugar and cinnamon. I ate breakfast kind of late, but didn't have lunch till just now. I don't think I've scarfed a sandwich down that fast in a long time.

Anyway! Day before yesterday I got a package from Sephora in the mail. It had the Kat Von D Lipstick sampler set. Oh my god. Looks like a book with mini lipsticks in it. LOVE. Soooo swatch time!!

1. Celebutard (pinky nude)
2. Cathedral (dark nude)
3. Lolita (coral nude)
4. Underage Red (light-ish red w/ blue tones)
5. Hellbent (On the darker side of red red)
6. Rosary (Dark red with plum tones)

Dude. I love these lipsticks. They are super creamy and awesomely pigmented. I hosted trivia for 2.5 hours. That's a lot of talking and only reapplied Hellbent once. With NO PRIMER! The only one it doesn't have that I want is the Adora one that's red with Gold flecks. I'm going to wear Celebutard with an orange-y gloss for Halloween. Celebutard, Hellbent and Rosary are my faves, I would love underage red a lot more if I wasn't a warm-toned kid. Blue toned lipsticks are a little tough for me to wear, not impossible, just difficult. In any event I highly recommend these lipsticks. Check 'em out.

Next year for Halloween....

Finally Some Makeup Photos.

This look is a modification of an older xsparkage post called ElectroPop. I've used colors from the Burning Heart Palette from Sugarpill as well as some other products. All brushes that were used are from Crown Brushes.

Urban Decay Primer Potion on the lid and on the lower lash line
Lid-Love+ (Bright red)
Crease-Buttercupcake (bright yellow)
I used Flamepoint (true orange) to help blend out the two colors.
Tear Duct - I put a dash of the nyx jumbo eyeliner pencil in milk, which I then covered with elf's loose mineral eyeshadow in Elegant.
Lower Lash Line/Wings- Posion Plum (I used an angled brush to create the two wings), on the lower lash line there was a sort of triangle created by the wing and the lash line itself I filled this with Parfait Amor from MAC.
Between the Wings- Jumbo eyeliner pencil in milk, covered with Sugarpill's Tako
I did a line of black liner on the lid to make my false eyelashes look more seamless I used very black liquid liner from Almay.
Mascara is Lashblastfusion by Covergirl
Falsies are Posh from NYX

On the skin:
Foundation - MAC face and body foundation N1-C48
Powder - Revlon Photoready 001 Translucent
Blush - Well Dressed by MAC

I obviously have nothing on my lips in either of these photos, but if I had I would have downplayed them cause the shadow is so bright. I think later I put on a very sheer pink gloss. One of the Covergirl fruity ones.

Please ignore my hair in both of these photos, hadn't styled it yet.

So lame.

The Naked Palette is back in stock at UD. I am on the waiting list. I can buy it. It will be gone within 48 hours. But I promised myself no more eyeshadow purchases till November, not to mention I am going to be unemployed as of next week. What to do what to do....

Business Time!

I absolutely swear that I am going to upload some make up pictures. Very goddamn soon. I am also going to do some swatches for some Kat Von D lipsticks I ordered. I meant to do some of that last week but there's just been too much business.

Ha, I wish it was that kind of business...
You know when I'm down to just my socks, it's time for business that's why they call them business socks!

Like most makeup/beauty geeks I subscribe to most of the newsletters from my favorite makeup companies: MAC, Sephora, Urban Decay etc. A few weeks ago I got the newsletter from Sephora including a very....ehm, provocative picture. I started to laugh uncontrollably when I saw this:

Now maybe it is just that I have a 12 year olds sense of humor, perhaps even a perverted 12 year old sense of humor. But if you can tell me that doesn't remind you of the most horrific cumshot in a porn, then you've either never seen one, or you are lying to yourself.

Upon viewing I immediately turned to my boyfriend, who is a graphic designer and is one of 4 people who run global marketing for a very large company, and asked "What do you think when you see this?" Now maybe it's because we are both completely sick in the head, a fact that neither of us would argue, but we both agreed. He followed by telling me that everybody in the marketing division of Sephora as well as the individual label probably had the same thought. So obviously I needed to do further investigation. The ad was for Dr. Dennis Gross skincare. The original picture they had of him is now gone, replaced by one that looks a bit less skeevy, what's more this ad is now gone. Further proof that somebody besides Chris and I, noticed how ridiculous this picture is.

One day companies will send me makeup for free!

Couple of things! I just ordered some new makeup brushes from Crown Brush which I'm pretty excited about, as well as eyelashes and a jumbo pencil (milk) from NYX. I wish I had the money to get my brushes from MAC cause they are absolutely better quality brushes, but if you're looking for a decent quality brush without a ton of money, crown is a pretty good way to go. My makeup habit is getting bad. I need to go by some shelves or something so I can organize my makeup, right now it's spilled all over my desk and that is just... ugh.

The other thing I want to do is improve my lipstick collection. I seriously have two colors that aren't glosses or bright fucking red. So that needs to be fixed.I also want to be good about posting looks that I do etc. I am also going to try to do some looks with E.L.F. mineral eyeshadows. I don't like a lot of the ELF products, but the mineral eyeshadows aren't half bad. The only cons listed on the website are that they fade and that they crease. This is absolutely NOT true provided you aren't a tard and use an eyeshadow primer.

Personal primer faves: Urban Decay Primer Potion and Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

Next on my makeup buying list:
Graffiti Eyeliner Pen from Eyeko
Maybe another Sugar Pill Palette or some individual shadows.

Eminem, fitness and makeup.

New Eminem is sort of like getting fucked between your tits. You really hope it's good for them, cause it sucks so bad for you.

In other news I have developed a new obsession with the makeup tutorials are awesome, but I keep checking for her normal Friday update and it's still not up. I'm sure it's just the long weekend, but I'm sort of bummed about it.

Chris and I have joined this website called fitday. It lets you keep track of your activities, foods you eat, etc. and tells you the amount of calories you can eat in order to reach your target weight by a particular time. I'm pretty excited. I think just as long as we can keep up with everything we'll be good.

Test: The Granola in my yogurt is soggy.
