Playing with natural colors.

Okay, so instead of working on homework like a good student, I was bored and decided to try out some more Glamour Doll Eyeshadows. I pretty much never use natural shades, but I need to work on them if I plan on trying to get the Clinique job I applied for.

I would like to apologize in advance for how terrible I look in the photos. But that's what you get when you decide to do makeup at 1AM. =)

MAC Painterly Paint Pot
GDE - He Loves Me Not
GDE - Boyfriend Sweater
GDE - Chocoholic
Lancome - Filigree

* I also just realized that the time/date from my digital camera is incorrect.
I did this look tonight, I promise.

LOTD: Partylicious Blues

Today, I was dying to use MAC's Partylicious. It's one of the newer shades of mine and I haven't really had a chance to use it yet, so I created this look around that color.

Elizabeth Arden Eye-Fix Primer
MAC Chromaline - Hi-Def Cyan
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil - Milk
MAC - Partylicious
MAC - If It Sparkles
Lancome - Midnight Rush palette

LOTD: Smokey melon

GDE - Pistol Pistol, Cloud Coverage
MAC - Melon, Later, If It Sparkles
MAC - Blackground Fluidline
NYX - Milk Jumbo Eye Pencil
Elizabeth Arden - Eye-Fix Primer

I've only used MAC's Melon pigment a couple times (and I've had it for over a year), so I was really excited to try this look. And yes, if you noticed the post before this, I changed my eyeshadow twice today. I just wasn't feeling the purples. =)

LOTD: Purple Pistols

Glamour Doll Eyes - Cloud Coverage, Pistol Pistol, Phyrra, Tattooed, Urban Trash
MAC - Frost White

LOTD (from 3-23): Red/black

I think I look a little bit retarded in the last picture, but it's there anyway. Also, at this rate, I am never going to catch up and put more text into these posts. I'm gonna try to do it as I post them from now on.

I'm still new at this, bear with me.


All shadows used for this look are by Glamour Doll Eyes except for one, which was MAC.
GDE Taylor - On lid and corner of lower lash line
GDE Undead - In crease and on lower lash line
GDE  Urban Trash - Outer V
GDE Cloud Coverage - Highlight under brow
MAC If It Sparkles -On top of highlight to add a slight shimmer.

LOTD (from 3-22): GlamourDollEyes + MAC Chartreuse

I loved these Glamour Doll pigments so much, that I placed a second order for more colors the day after I received my first order. I'm definitely a fan of these highly-pigmented colors and would recommend them to anyone. The best tbing is that they offer sample sizes of all their shadows, so you are able to try them out before committing to purchasing full-size jars.

Glamour Doll Eyes - Disco White, Shamrock, Ladies Night
MAC - Marine Ultra, Partylicious, Chartreus, Golden Lemon

LOTD (from 3-21): Lancome Pink&Purple

Lancome - Makeover, Trendy, New Black, Daylight
MAC - Push The Edge

LOTD (from 3-19): Estee Lauder - Bronze Goddess Soleil Palette

What the palette looks like:

Estee Lauder - Bronze Goddess Soleil palette
Lancome - Excursion

*I didn't use the blue in the palette because it didn't go with what I was doing for the day, so I used Excursion which is a really pretty teal/green color.

LOTD (from 3-12): 120 Color Palette - Neon green/navy

120 Color Palette - Neon green, matte navy, metallic royal blue
Lancome - Daylight
MAC - Deep Blue Green

* will edit to add more later

LOTD (from 3-11): Lancome Violet Luxe

Lancome - Violet Luxe palette, Daylight, New Black
120 Color Palette - Magenta/purple color

* will edit to add more details later

hello! =)

I've never been much of a blogger. I used to have online journals when I was in middle/high school, but none of them lasted very long either.

Howeverrrrr - My makeup addiction has begun to get out of control recently and I wanted somewhere I could post pictures of the looks I have done on a regular basis, so I can have a record of products I've used and how things have turned out. I figured creating a blog would be the best way to do this.

Maybe one day I'll get over my YouTube tutorial fear, but who knows. I'd like to eventually attempt (at least) tutorials through pictures, but I think I'm going to need a better camera first. The one I have is very old (and wasn't really that great to begin with), so I switch between that and using my Droid phone.

I have a few looks from the past couple weeks that I'm going to post to get started. Hopefully, I'll still be able to remember the products that I used.

If you took the time to read this, thanks. Check back for updates soon.

Much love, Erin
