Sophisticated Pink Craziness


I found this fantastic NYX Red Pink this week and I am in love!!  It is definitely a MUFE #75 dupe! I think I could even like it more than #75 because of the price, $6.99 vs. $23.  Amazing!!  I called this look sophisticated because that was the name of the lashes, and I thought that was pretty comical!  :D

How to be a Tropical Bird


After yesterday's tutorial I was missing my bright colours so I decided to make use of my MUFE #92...and purple's complementary colour is yellow and I like orange, which is a good enough excuse for me to combine the colours together!  This combination reminds me of a bird you would find in the amazon.

A Neutral Look in the Most Unnatural Way!


This is my kinda neutral! ;)

M33gzz requested this look.  However, I changed the shape, my burgundy turned out more deep because I use a purple base and I could not find the beautiful duo chrome red/blue that she used.  I did find an art store that carried it but unfortunately I didn't have time to go there.

HD or HQ?


I recently uploaded an HQ video to youtube and compressing and uploading went soooo fast!! I usually upload HD videos and it takes about 2.5 hours to compress, upload and process my videos. HQ would probably cut the time down by half so I was wondering if people preferred HQ or HD? I personally only watch in HQ because I use wifi and it isn't the fastest. Please let me know!
