EOTD: Sugarpill Brights

You know how sometimes an idea will pop into your head and then you can't rest until that idea becomes reality?  Today I had visions of Sugarpill's Buttercupcake intermingling with Acidberry and I knew I had to make it a real thing!

Here is the result:

I used quite a lot of my pressed Sugarpill colours to achieve this look and I was quite pleased with how it came out!

Products used:

  • The All Natural Face Magic Eyeshadow Primer
  • NYX Eyeshadow Base in "White"
  • Sugarpill's Buttercupcake in the inner crease and blended up into the base of my eyebrow
  • Sugarpill's Acidberry in the outer crease and blended in toward the Buttercupcake
  • Sugarpill's Mochi on the inner half of the lid
  • Sugarpill's Velocity in the second half of the lid (leaving some room at the very outer edge of the lid)
  • Sugarpill's Poison Plum in the outer most part of the lid and the outer most part of the lower lash line (where I layered it on top of Velocity)
  • A bit of Sugarpill's Afterparty to blend the Poison Plum into the Acidberry
  • Sugarpill's Tako under the brow
  • Sugarpill's Lumi in the duct
  • A bit more Mochi and Velocity on the lower lash line
  • Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in "Zero" to line the upper and lower waterline
  • Inglot's Gel Liner in "77" for the upper liner
  • A tiny bit of Sugarpill's Bulletproof to smooth out the upper liner
  • Ardell #120 lashes
  • Gabriel Color Mascara in "Black"
Ooooh yes!

What is *your* favorite pressed Sugarpill shadow?  I really can't decide!  I love them all and I can hardly wait for Sugarpill to release their new pressed shadows in the summer.  I'm hoping most of them are vegan!!

Thanks, as always, for stopping by.  :)

Madd Style Cosmetics: Colourful!

Hiiiiii!  :)

The other day I was checking around the Madd Style Cosmetics FB fan page to see what colours the lovely ladies wanted to see used.  The *ever* wonderful Tiffany (yep, the very same one that was one of the original models for MSC!) requested that I use some Frankenberry and I just could not resist her or it (it's a lovely cool-toned light pink).

This was the result:

If you'd like to find out how I achieved this look--please keep on reading!

EOTD: Multi-Company Mash-Up (Sugarpill and Madd Style Cosmetics)


Tonight I had the idea to combine Sugarpill's Acidberry & Velocity with a darker blue by Madd Style Cosmetics on the lid.  I wasn't sure if I was going to go for a more blackened lid look, but I do like how it all turned out in the end!  Mixing bright creases with a smokier lid sure is a fun time, I think!  What do you think?

Products used:

  • The All Natural Face Magic Eyeshadow Primer
  • NYX Eyeshadow Base in "White" applied all over the lid and blended up into the crease/below the brow bone
  • The All Natural Face Black "Eyeshadow Primer" (I use this as a base, not a primer.  It creases A LOT if you try to use it as a primer) applied over the mobile part of the lid
  • Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in "Yeyo" to line the lower lash line and tear duct area
  • Sugarpill's Acidberry applied to the crease
  • Sugarpill's Velocity applied to the deeper part of the crease and layered/blended into Acidberry
  • Madd Style Cosmetics's Psychic Paper applied under the brow and blended down into Acidberry
  • Madd Style Cosmetics's Cheat Code applied to the lid and blended up into Velocity
  • Sugarpill's Acidberry and Velocity applied to the lower lash line
  • Madd Style Cosmetics's Dreamer's Dream Potion applied to the tear duct
  • Korres Eyeliner Pencil to line the lower waterline
  • Sugarpill's Tako to set the white pencil on the waterline
  • A bit of Urban Decay's 24/7 pencil in "Zero" to tightline the upper lashes/line the upper waterline
  • Sugarpill's Bulletproof applied dry as a smoky liner on the upper lash line
  • Gabriel Color Mascara in "Black" applied to the upper and lower lashes
Yep yep!!  What colours did *you* wear on your eyes today?  :)
