EOTD: Sugarpill and Madd Style Cosmetics

Hi, and hello!

This evening, whilst getting ready to go over to a friend's to watch the newest episode of Game of Thrones, I decided to dip into some Sugarpill!  I'm in a FB group where we're doing little challenges and the challenge is for us all to use the same colours (or similar colours) in looks to see how we all come up with different ideas, etc.  The challenge for this week was to use Sugarpill's Mochi (or a mint), Sugarpill's Velocity (or a true blue) and Sugarpill's 2am (or a warm purple).  Since 2am isn't vegan, I don't own that one--so I used a warm purple by Madd Style Cosmetics!

And here is the look I came up with:

I think the results are kinda fun!  

Products used:
  • Primer
  • NYX Eyeshadow Base in White
  • Korres Eyeliner Pencil in White
  • Sugarpill Candycrush
  • Sugarpill Mochi
  • Madd Style Cosmetics Ickis
  • Sugarpill Velocity
  • Sugarpill Tako
  • Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Colour Cosmetic Pencil in Poolboy
  • Tarte's Inner Rim Brightener
  • Pure Anada Mascara
  • Barry M Bright Turquoise Mascara
I've had this Barry M mascara for a while and I *thought* it didn't work all that well and so I haven't really played around with it.  I'm *really* happy with how well it showed up on my lower lashes though!  Holy heck!  I gotta use this stuff more often!

EOTD: Inglot and Sugarpill

Good evening!

I have been playing with makeup a lot over the past week or so and realized that I should share some love of it here on my blog!  Let the makeup blogging revival begin!!!!!!!! :)

This evening I celebrated the return of Game of Thrones with a friend of mine (I'll be watching it at her house on Monday evenings and I'm super excited for that as she has read the books, so when I get confused I can ask her questions so that I can understand what the heck is going on!  Woo!) and decided to mark the occasion with some colourful liner.  Sugarpill's Royal Sugar really does make an incredible liner when mixed with a mixing medium!

So what'd I use?
  • Mineral Fusion Eye Primer
  • Inglot D.S 501 on the lid
  • A tiny bit of Inglot Pearl 448 at the outer part of the lid
  • Inglot Matte 376 in the crease and blended out with some Matte 390.  376 also applied along the lower lash line
  • Inglot D.S 496 in the tear duct area
  • OCC Cosmetic Colour Pencil in Poolboy to line the lower waterline
  • Sugarpill's Royal Sugar (mixed with Aromaleigh's Indelible Eyeliner Sealant) for winged liner
  • Pure Anada Mascara in Black on the upper and lower lashes
Fun fun fun, n'est-ce pas?  :)
