EOTD Saturday!!

Happy Saturday, friends!

I was working all day, and am shocked that my eye makeup lasted all day! (Thank you, Urban Decay shadows and Nars primer!)  I got compliments on my eye makeup from a few interesting sources today: 2 MAC artists, a lovely friend of mine and her friend!  So, I thought I'd share.

Before I do, I'd like to give a huge nod to Zabrena from for the inspiration for this look.  She is a gorgeous, kind, innovative, and brilliant woman with a fantastic website for women to get the most out of their makeup collection.  The video I took inspiration from is as follows:

I used the Urban Decay Naked palette for this look :)  :
-UD Naked on the crease
-UD Darkhorse on the outer v and last third of lid
-UD Buck on the middle third
-UD Half Baked on the first third
-Blended UD Virgin on the brow bone, into the crease
-UD Smog over the middle part of the lid to blend Half Baked into Darkhorse
-UD Darkhorse on outer third of lower lashline
-UD Half Baked on first 2 thirds of lower lashline
-Cargo black eyeliner
-MAC Extendlash mascara

have a great evening!!

EOTD :) Happy Friday!

Not as happy with today’s eye look, but the idea is what I like lol.
I used:
-MAC Patina (crease)
-Bodyshop Sugar Gaze (inner third of lid)
-Bodyshop Steel My Heart (outer third/outer v)
-MAC Copperplate (middle third of lid)
-MAC Blanc Type (brow/blend)
Then I went in with Patina on the middle of my lid to warm it up a bit. The Bodyshop shadows are powdery and really don’t blend as well as I’d like. So, again, I’m not thrilled with the look, but it’s OK :) .
On my cheeks:
-Patina to contour (weird, I know, but it sort of worked)
-MAC Warm Soul (blush)
-MAC Mellowarm (LE) (Frost) –> this is from the Fabulously Festive (Warm) kit a few years back. This lipstick is lovely, and reads more Cremesheen on me than Frost. It’s a bit warm for my liking, but it works with my clothes today.

Happy Friday and Happy Weekend :)

I used:

-MAC Tilt (blend Deep Truth to middle third of lid)
-MAC Juxt (middle of lid, blended into Gorgeous Gold and Deep Truth)
-UD Naked (over the crease at the end to blend, soften)


-MAC Seasonal Appeal blush (LE)

-MAC Ravishing (cremesheen)

Enjoy :)
