EOTD: Sugarpill and Inglot Mash-Up

The weather in Vancouver has become dreary (although I have to say I really enjoy the snow--but the grey garbage water that is left behind after the rain starts...I do not like quite so much!) and I decided to counter-balance that with a look that calls on Spring!  Using a combination of Sugarpill Cosmetics and Inglot, I came up with this look:

Here are the products I used: 
  • OCC Creme Colour Concentrate in John Doe
  • Sugarpill Buttercupcake in the inner lid
  • Inglot Pearl 440 in center lid
  • Inglot AMC 66 in outer lid
  • Sugarpill Tako for the brow highlight
  • Sugarpill Lumi in the tear duct
  • Sugarpill Mochi on the bulk of the lower lash line
  • Inglot Pearl 426 on the outer part of the lower lash line
  • Gabriel Black Color Mascara
  • Inglot 87 Gel Liner (also applied on lower waterline)
My Inglot liner has been dried out--but I used the miraculous "Duraline" to wake it up.  It did a super good job!

This was a pretty fun look to do.  Something about yellows always make me want to blow them out right in the inner portion of the eye this way.  Buttercupcake was the perfect suspect for such a job!

I hope you're all ready for the holiday season (since it is pretty much upon us!) and thanks for stopping by to take a look at my creation.  :)

EOTD: Sugarpill Drama

Tonight I had this vision of Sugarpill's Poison Plum, Velocity and Goldilux in a look.  Then I had to make it happen!

And then everything was right with the world.  :)

What visions of looks have you had in your head lately??

Sugarpill Extravaganza!


Today I pulled out my Sugarpill Cosmetics colours and decided to feature one of my newer colours that I haven't played around with too too much yet: Decora!  Wow is it even gorgeous.  The greenish glitter in it made me want to pair it with Lumi and then I wanted to use Poison Plum I just went with my instincts!  Here is what I came up with:

Products used:
  • Random Eyeshadow Primer
  • Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Creme Colour Concentrate in John Doe
  • Inglot 390 Matte in the crease 
  • Sugarpill's Poison Plum in the crease
  • Sugarpill's Decora on the lid
  • Sugarpill's Lumi in the duct
  • Sugarpill's Velocity in the deep crease/lower lash line
  • A bit of Sugarpill's Afterparty on the inner portion of the lower lash line
  • Sugarpill's Tako for a brow highlight
  • Sugarpill's Bulletproof for liner
  • A bit of Zuzu Luxe Liquid Liner along the lash line
  • Zuzu Luxe Leaf Eyeliner on the lower waterline
  • Gabriel Color Mascara in Black on the lower lashes
  • Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara on the top lashes
What are some of your favorite Sugarpill colours??  I'm very excited because I have the newest three pressed vegan shadows (from the Cold Chemistry collection) coming to me after their Black Friday sale!  Weeeeeeee!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Madd Style Cosmetics: Purple, Gold and Brown.

Hi Everyone!

It's time for my next tutorial!

This one does a bit of double duty.  I had posted this look in the Madd Style Cosmetics FB Group Page a few days ago and several of the ladies asked that I do a tutorial for it.  Luckily it's also almost the exact same (but different colours) as the look I did when the lovely Lauren asked that I do a look/tutorial using 'Ello and an MSC matte grey.  As I mention in the video, this kind of look can be changed up depending on the colour you want to use.  But as long as you stick to the matte colour in the crease, you'll end up with the "same" look but it will be tailored to the colours you want to use.  :)

If you want to find out how I achieved the below look, then please take a look at my "talkie" tutorial!

As a reminder, here are the supplies I used:

And here are a couple more shots of the look:

Here's the similar look I did using: Like a Virgin (in the duct), All that Giltters (in the innner and outer lid), 'Ello (in the center of the lid), Touch of Grey and a matte black (in the crease/lower lash line) and Psyhic Paper (brow highlight) 

Until next time, my friends!!
