Daisy and Tumbler: Look of the Day

The last couple of weeks have been quite eventful! So eventful that sometimes I didn't even have time to slap some makeup on and look pretty. Now that the whirlwind of insanity is dying down I've finally had the time to play! Yesterday while I was at work, I wanted to do one of the looks we did at one of the shows. The thing is after finishing what I did I realized that I had actually combined two of the looks and hadn't realized it. I ended with this:










Here are the products I used:

Eyes (everything under eyes is Inglot except for the mascara)

  • 457 eyeshadow on the lid, blended into the crease and into the front of my eyebrow.
  • Body Pigment 17 on the center of the lid.
  • Kohl 01 eyeliner (not out until October) and lined my waterline and tightlined. I then added a little more to my lower lash line and used a tiny shader brush to smoke it out. I extended this line outward as if I were extending my waterline toward my the end of my eyebrow. Then I took a blending brush and blurred the edge of this line so that it wasn't so precise and looked smoky. Using this same brush I connected the eyeshadow on my lid to the line and blended them together to create a winged eyeshadow shape.
  • Duraline and AMC Pure Pigment 16, to make the inner part of the lower lash line electric blue.
  • Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara
Face & Lips
  • I used The Balm's Frat Boy blush on my cheeks  
  • I dabbed Inglot's 173 lipstick with my finger.
Hope you guys like!

EOS Alice in Wonderland Lip Balm!


As if I needed an excuse to buy a new lip balm! Well, if you're looking for an excuse, I can give you one (or three)!

First let me give you a quick run through:

EOS lip balms are very popular because (these are in no particular order):

1) They're cute
2) They feel great on your lips
3) They're generally inexpensive
4) They're long lasting
5) They smell nice and they're not overpowering
6) They're 95% organic, 100% natural
7) I can go on...but I think you get it!

Well if these reasons weren't good enough before let me tell you about the limited edition Alice in Wonderland set! EOS partnered with Disney to create an Alice and Wonderland inspired set. The set includes three lip balms in the following "flavors/scents": Blueberry Potion, Watermelon Wonderland, and Sweet Vanilla Nonsense.

I love the little Mickey Mouse imprint on the side of the sphere. In all, the packaging is still simple but the little imprint makes it more interesting. What I actually found way more interesting was the packaging it came in, you can definitely feel the Alice in Wonderland whimsy in the product. I almost wish the little Alice was on the ball.

On to the balm itself!

They all feel about the same on the lips, the only difference is the smell. My favorite is definitely the Sweet Vanilla Nonsense. The one I don't like quite as much is the Blueberry Potion, I'm not entirely sold on the scent. It feels nice but I've never really liked Blueberry scents because I find them a little funky. The good thing however is that the scent fades after a while. The Watermelon Wonderland is really nice, I didn't think I would like it as much as I would but I do!

The set is only available at Target right now. It will be available at Walgreens, Ulta, Target.com, Walgreens.com, and Drugstore.com  in November. I got this set for 7.99, so technically you get three for the price of two.

If you don't have any EOS lip balm or you like Alice in Wonderland this is a cute set to get!

Vampy

Hiiii!

Sorry! I know I'm terrible! First no interwebz :( and now I have school and work to juggle! Not to worry! I have some stuff stashed away.

I'm really so over the summer and in effort to feel more Autumn-y (yes, I know it's not a word) I've been wearing dark lips with mostly clean eyes.

I line my lips with MAC's Chestnut lip liner and I fill in with Inglot's 413 lipstick. Chestnut makes the 413 more sultry. I wore this lip with some brown eyeshadow and a little but of Sugarpill's Goldilux in the center and today I wore it with a cat eye.

If you think you can't pull this dark lip look because it's too intense try to wear your dark lip with some mascara and nothing else. You can also play with the intensity of the color. Blot off the lip color until you're satisfied with the level of darkness.

Elba
