I felt like wearin something bright and simple to do, so I used 2 of my favorite loose eyeshadows.  Here is what I came up with: 

Here is what I used: 

Maybelline color tattoo and barely beige 
Darling Girl Cosmetics Miss Argentina 
Darling Girl cosmetics Nerpette (crease)
Physicians formula black liner pen

Simple and fun look that can be done in 5 minutes ;) 

See you next time.

FOTD: Jeweled Neutral.

I wanted to do a basic eye for work today, but something more than just liner and mascara. It takes me about 5 minutes to do this look, and it looks like a little effort was put into it. 

I used one of my favorite Darlig Girl Cosmetics pigments, Jeweled Taupe. It's so pretty and I always get complimented when I wear it. Even when it's just as a wash all over and nothing else. Here is what it looks like. I applied it dry over a base. 

Here is with flash. You can see the sparkle this pigment has. It's that pretty in person too! 

Here is what I used, in that order: 

Tarte eyelid primer 
Urban decay pencil in sin
Paulas Choice the mattes palette 
      * 3 browns, light for blending and 2 
        dark ones on the crease and lower 
        lash liner. 
Darling Girl Jeweled Taupe all over the lid 
Jordana pencil in black to tightline 
By apple Almond oil mascara

I've been rediscovering my love for indie pigments, and one of my fave indie brands is Darling Girl Cosmetics.   I will do something more fun soon... See you next time :)  

EOTD: Plummy Gold


I have been trying to go through my pigments and use them often. Today I didn't have time for a complex look before work, so I used 2 colors (lid and crease) only and liner. I liked how it turned out :) 

This is the pigment by Darling Girl Cosmetics I used: Loveform 

Here is how it looks with flash 

And here is what I came up with.. 

Here is the breakdown of what I used. 

Mac paintpot in soft ochre 
Random matte dark brown shadow 
Darling Girl Cosmetics Loveform pigment 
DGC glitter glue on the center only, then loveform patted in top. 

I will link darling girl cosmetics later today. See you next time.
