sitting here bored...
trying to think of a new series to do for my blog. yeah, i'm lame.ideas? tell me...
[i'm thinking of one, but want input... what do you wanna see?]
I haven't done a pink Wednesday in a while, so I decided to do a little 2 in 1 post today :]
First, here is the pink I chose today -
OPI's "Don't Socrate-tease Me"
2 coats of polish, Zoya top coat
I know it looks a little red in the picture, but in reality, it is a red/pink base with a reallllllly pretty pink iridescence. Click on the picture, you can see it better :]
Now, my AOTD (Accessory of the Day) -
Hello Kitty Bling Ring
Again, if you want a better look, click on the picture. I don't get why the pictures I put on here always load smaller than they are! Anyway, I LOVE this ring. Another e-Bay purchase. If you are smart about e-Bay, you can get anything you want. I always check the boxes for top rated seller, free shipping, buy it now, and new. Then I browse!
Back to the point. This ring was $4 from Beijing. No shame in my game, I don't care. I will buy something from China, everything is made there anyway ;] This is fun, costume jewelry. My friend said she'd punch me if I ever bought this with real diamonds. The ring is Swarovski crystals. The actual detail of the ring is amazing, looks just like Miss Kitty! I love it.
Have any of you e-bayed?
Lots of love,

Here is part 2, the more literal of the series. Part 1 was classic 40's era makeup, and this is WAY more costume makeup [which btw, is my favorite makeup to do]
Here is the inspiration pic -
Here is my recreation -
I just did the eyes, because the face wouldn't really have been anything. No lipstick, nothing like that. Had I done my face I probably would have contoured with a gray toned powder. I wanted to keep it looking "dirty" - I am a soldier. Soldiers get dirty. I wanted to keep some of the star in the look, so I went with disconnected star points for my outer corner. I lined that with red to keep the red in the look as well.
Since the inspiration picture is so dark and dirty, I kept it just that. I used a bunch of grays and blacks, I used a bright silver on the inner corner for drama, and my lid just a very dark blue. I blended everything out with typographic from MAC. It's just a dark gray. This would be my Captain America super soldier war-paint.
This was so much fun. Another cool movie needs to come out so I can do some more :]
Tomorrow is going to be an AOTD and NOTD, so stay watchin' for that!
Love you all,
I'm in the middle of doing part 2 of my Captain America look (more literal, the "super soldier"), but I had to just share this -
[CLiCK THE PiC]
Yeah, that's what you think it is.
Yeah, that's what you think it is.
That's a suped-up Hello Kitty street racer. How awesome.
Off to finish my look, but just had to show you guys :]

I absolutely love comic book movies. I can't wait to see this one. I also love that it's in the 40's, I have a thing for the old school military uniforms ;]
So, as you can see, this is part 1. Part one is the female role. I tried to keep it very true to the era - porcelain skin, strong brow, red lips, winged liner and rosy cheeks. I got my skin as light as I could without looking like a clown! This is what I came up with...
I really like the way it turned out...
Part 2 is obviously going to be a little more... literal?
We'll see ;]
Also, I put up a youtube video, lol...
Love you all,

I think the reason I don't post on here all the time, is because I barely wear makeup and think of this as a makeup blog. Yeah, sometimes I feel like doing it all special and stuff, and that's when I do the looks :]
So, I'm making up my own little title for some posts! AOTD.
Accessory of the day.
I change my nails everyday, I get jewelry, so I am going to expand from just makeup to nails and jewelry and such too :] I basically live online, so I order everything I get, I don't actually go outside my house. Like, ever lol. I do have a life though, but I'm a wicked homebody.
So, we are going to start today!
I'm really wanting a teal color for my nails, and until I have money, I can't get the one I want. Which is from Zoya, so here is one I have in my stash already
Sally Hansen "Insta-Dri" in "Co-Bolt blue"
Obviously, this isn't teal, but I looooooooove the color. I had my friend be the guinea pig the day I got it so I could see what it was like. Epic fail, really amusing. However, this nail polish has a brush on it that's like a mini flat brush. The brush is dense, and doesn't have the same tapered rounder brushes that other companies brushes do. It's literally a mini flat, paint brush. It really makes it challenging to get the polish on the nails... it has no curve, so you can't get the sides of the nail that great. As you can see in the picture, I got a lot on the sides of my nails. Plus, because the brush is so hard to work with, AND it's Insta-Dri, it's like a cruel joke! But it's pretty :]
Well, learned what Sally Hansen Insta-Dri brushes are like. Won't buy this again formula again.
Now, I got a ring in the mail yesterday that I got from e-bay. Let me start by saying, I have no money. So, I don't mind if it's coming from China and .99 cents on there. This is disposable jewelry. And China makes some good disposable jewelry. It's really hit or miss. Anyway, I have my basic, never take off jewelry and then I have free space. I can't afford an everyday piece. I be broke. Here is the ring though -
I don't care what anyone says, THAT ^ is good for .99 cents. It's not going to last forever, but it's gooood now! It's so cute. It is really sparkly and the gold parts are really shiny, some of it is hammered looking. It's just good.
So, yeah! I hope you guys like my idea for my blog, and hopefully I can get some more followers so I can follow some more blogs! I really do read the people's blogs. Weird, I know lol...
Love you all,

So, if you follow me on Facebook you know I have seen Transformers: Dark of the Moon twice in the theaters. I love the movies, and I especially love that they took Megan Fox OUT. Her replacement? Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington Whiteley. She looks absolutely amazing the whole movie, so I wanted to do a look of hers. I googled the movie premier and got my inspiration picture from the premier in NYC.
For this look it is all about the skin. Tried to make my face as flawless as possible (I didn't do it THAT perfectly, just for the sake of this look). Then it was just liquid liner, lashes, a pink pout and some contouring of the crease and cheeks. I even took it a step further and curled my hair! I'm happy that I could get some sort of decent looking style out of my hair... it's growing!
This look took me a surprising amount of time. The more natural and flawless "no makeup" looks always take the most time. It's ok though, I'm proud of the outcome :]
I hope you like this one as well as my Britney Spears post. I have to start finding some inspiration/current looks on girls with tan skin! I'm finding it very hard to recreate such fair skinned looks. Oh well, all you have to do is adjust the colors :]
Love you all, stay tuned for the next look!

"I-I-I, wanna go-o-o all the way-ay-ay takin' out my freak tonight.."
I was watching the video for "I Wanna Go", the new Britney Spears song, and I loved her makeup.
So I googled a still shot, and got to work.
Inspiration picture (click on it for a better zoom of the eyes and cheeks)
Now, I have MUCH darker skin than Britney does in this video. I had to adapt accordingly, and people need to view it accordingly, haha.
So, I have a smoky dark gray and black lid, with the silver inner corner sparkle. Pink lips *which was incredibly hard for me to do* and bronzed cheeks. I gave myself her "glow" by using concealer and a tinted moisturizer that was a few shades lighter than my actual skin tone... I opted for no false lashes because... I'm lazy :]
There are 2 more looks on the roster that I may bust out today, and then a completely creative look. I can tell you now it isn't going to be wearable. But if you like just looking at what you can do with basically a black liner and some blues, keep an eye out for it :]
Love you all, comment below if you have any requests!

Girls, I need your help. I have absolutely NO inspiration lately.
This is where the followers come in...
I need ideas!
Something fun. It can be anything. Hot, summer looks, colorful, anything.
Comment below, and hopefully I can pick one, get off my butt and bust out the brushes :]
Love you all,

Just realized that. I do everything on Facebook! The long weekend must have gotten to me.
Posts soon :]
I really need to do a haul... the post would be very photo heavy!
Love you all - stick with me here lol

As promised, I am doing a week of looks. This is the first of the bunch. It probably won't be daily because I don't wear makeup everyday, but there will be 7. Summer, easy breezy looks, you get the idea.
So here is look #1 - Quick, colorful and defined...
[Ok, let's just get a good laugh out of this picture. Lol]
So, here's a breakdown :]
Blue liquid liner
Urban Decay "Buck" in the crease
Urban Decay "Virgin" inner corner highlight
L'Oreal Voluminous mascara in Carbon Black
Nars "Laguna" Bronzer
Elf "Coral" & "Passionate Pink" blush
Urban Decay Afterglow in "Quickie"
CoverGirl "Passionate" lipstick
And... done :]
Fast, easy, summer friendly! I hope you found look 1 nice & simple. I'm not into wearing alot of makeup in the summer. And I never use foundation, if I need some sort of something, I'll use a tinted moisturizer. So yeah... I have a new fascination with blue liners. I bought 4 last week.
FYI, don't get the elf blue liner pen. It is sharp! And dry, and well... crap ;]
I'm pretty sure that the next look is going to be a little more dramatic... I think it may be my 4th of July holiday makeup :]
What's YOUR first look??
Lots of love,
Friday, July 1, 2011
Ok, so it's the beginning of the holiday weekend, and my Zoya came in the mail today! I will SO be painting my nails soon. There is this orange color that I can't wait to try. I know, I know, not pink, but the excitement can't be stifled!
Look up Tangy, people ;]
Also, look 1 of a Week of Looks will go up tonight or tomorrow. I haven't decided yet!
Lots of love,
