FOTD: Nikkietutorials Rainbow Makeup

When I saw Nikkietutorials' Spring Rainbow Makeup Tutorial this morning, I knew I had to do it (even though I wasn't going out and I planned to clean all day). This is probably my favourite rainbow tutorial, because it isn't all happy tutti fruity looking. I have an issue with bright, shimmery, airy looks on myself...almost like my aversion for browns. So I was happy to see the use of some mattes mixed in with the shimmer as well.

My look isn't as blown out as Nikkie's, but I used the same general shadow placement. I also kept my brow bone matte because I like my matte Brule brow highlight.

FOTD: MUFE, The Body Shop and Extensions!

I decided to recreate my Lusting for Mattes with WnW Tutorial using a beautiful eyeshadow that I long forgot about, The Body Shop's Eye Colour in Amethyst (30). It is a shimmery purplish silver.

I look elvish. :)

NOTD: French Circus Manicure

I decided to use my nail art polishes for this manicure. I am a little out of practice in using them so my lines are a little wonky and I had to add a little thinner to it because it started to thicken. However, this is what I came up with. I may try to perfect once it chips.

I used my FAVOURITE cream purple, a nameless bright bluish purple from Hot Topic and painted the lines with Kiss Nail Art Paint in Black. I added a coat of Seche Vite on top, then taped and painted the tips black with Sinful Colors in Black on Black. Finished it with another coat of Seche Vite. Voila mes amis!

My 1960s Twiggy Sucker Punch Tutorial!

I liked my 1960s Sucker Punch FOTD so much that I decided to create a tutorial on it. I changed the crease a little, I didn't connect it to the lower lash line this time, and I changed the shape slightly to make it more Babydoll-like. I had to record this tutorial three times because I didn't like the colours I used the first time, and the second time it was sunny, then became really dark and started hailing against the window. :D

FOTD: 1960's Sucker Punch Inspired Look

I'm on a roll ya'll! I'm keeping my statement and this is my third FOTD for the week.

I watched Sucker Punch last night, which was probably one of the more boring movies I've seen lately (shame because it was visually inspiring). While I was bored to death and skipped through the pointless fight scenes, I really admired the makeup, particularly Babydoll's.  Her makeup was soft, cute and 60's-like with the well defined crease and huge lashes.

I decided to do a look today that had a 60's feel with a defined crease and soft pink lips. Babydoll's was pretty and I wanted mine to have a little more edge. I used my Miss Adoro WSP lashes on my upper lid, but I wish I chose ones that were a little more full. My lower lashes are from Daiso (Japanese dollar store). I decided to keep the soft pink lips.

NOTD: Konad OPI DS Sapphire

After a three day hiatus from nail polish (mostly because of my indecisiveness) I finally settled on Konad-ing my nails with OPI DS Sapphire. I haven't broken out the plates in months and months, mostly because I only really like a few of the full nail patterns, and those patterns are too narrow for my thumb nails.  I only have three Konad plates. I really want to buy the Bundle Monster plates, but I'm too lazy to order them (or I feel there's always something better to buy with my monthly budget).

I first applied two coats of my current favourite black nail polish, Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel in Stiletto, let it dry, then stamped on OPI DS Sapphire. To "solve" the narrow pattern issue, I first stamped the whole pattern to one side of my thumb nail, then I picked up half the pattern off the plate and butted it against the end of the previous stamped pattern (the to best of my ability). You can see that something went on there if you look closely, but at least there's no gaping black abyss on the edge of the nail. Sorry, I didn't get a photo of what it looks like.

FOTD: Classic Sokolum79 with Sugarpill

I made myself sit down and apply a smokey eye today. I think this look is classic me because it involves one of my favourite purples, Sugarpill Cosmetics' Poison Plum Eyeshadow. This look was inspired by a video by one of the Pixiwoo sisters from a few months ago. It's definitely a high impact look that attracts attention.

I'm also wearing another one of my favourite lip products, Wet n Wild's Mega Last Lip Color in 908C (Sugar Plum Fairy). I love all the Mega Last Colors, they're long lasting and I just love the texture.

FOTD: MAC More to Love & Full Speed Ahead

I've decided that I am going to post more FOTDs. I have been in a makeup slump for the past few weeks so maybe this will inspire me to create more looks. I am going to TRY to post an FOTD at least twice a week if not more. :o

This is one of my more subtle looks, winged liner with a bright lip. I figure the community rarely sees me with this type of look, and I do wear it often.

The Hunger Games Part Deux!

I was asked to create an avant garde Hunger Games inspired look by Evil Shades Cosmetics. I was more than happy to oblige since I'm always looking for a reason to dress up. :D

I was inspired by the Stylists of The Hunger Games, mainly Cinna, Octavia, Flavius and Portia. Some of them had very extreme style, gold facial tattoos, dyed skin, and colourful hair and lips.

I purchased the cosplay wig on ebay a while back and I recently cut bangs into it. I am also wearing grey 15mm circle lenses from PinkyParadise.
