Classy

Hello! Today I present to you a more classy sort of look for going out to the club. Sometimes when I go out I like to experiment with makeup and try weird things; for this look I just tried to to have the makeup look "pretty". I didn't add much colour to my lips for this, I just used a shiny, sparkly gloss. It is a Givenchy gloss called Celestial Black. I like it because it looks BLACK in the tube but on the lips it is very sheer with holographic sparkles so one could wear it anywhere.
I also wanted to try something different with my hair. I put in my dread falls and basically kept tying little sections in knots on the top of my head. I think it turned out pretty neat!

I enjoy doing looks with purple toned eyeshadow as I feel it works really well with brown eyes.
What colour are your eyes? What eyeshadow colours do you use to enhance them?

Coral Makeup for Cold Weather

A couple of months ago, I read a post on Eye Heart It about wearing more pink lipsticks for the fall  even though pink tones aren't typically associated with fall makeup. It got me thinking about how many of us tend to associate lighter, brighter colours with spring and summer makeup and darker shades for the winter. Personally I tend to wear more pinks, purples, and peach tones in the spring, bright and bold colours in the summer, and tone it back down to greys and dark blues in the fall. For winter I like black and silver and dark, matte lips. Getting into habits gets boring after awhile so I decided to break out of this silly thinking and try some "off-season" colours myself to end a bit of a makeup rut that I was in! Coral is a colour I ALWAYS associate with summer so I decided to give it a try for my fall and winter makeup this year. I think a nice coral lip contrasts nicely with darker, saturated eyeshadow colours that I would normally wear for fall and winter.

NYE

Hello everyone and happy new year!! Since I am a huge procrastinator, I will be posting my New Year's Eve look from last year! I wore some latex pieces from one of my favourite designers, Ego Assassin (they closed down this year which sucks!!) They are made from embossed latex that has a raised texture in addition to the print.....too cool. The theme for my makeup was blue, blue, and more blue. I pulled out one of my old favourites from MAC for my lips; Comet Blue Dazzleglass is one of the first things I ever bought from MAC and I just love it. I tried out my Sugarpill Dewdrop Kisses False lashes because they are HUGE and NYE feels like one of those times when ridiculous lashes are in order.
