Makeup collection and storage!

I guess the video speaks for itself, really ;)

I didn't really go into detail about any of the products in the video, but let me know if you'd like to see posts with more in-depth collection stuff like "Lipstick collection", "Eyeshadow collection" or anything like that :)

Classic, black smokey eye

I've been wanting to do a video on a basic, black smokey eye for a while, so when I finally(!) sat down to do a tutorial yesterday, that was what I wanted to do :)

Angel Flame look

A pretty simple look to try out the (semi)new MAC Angel Flame quad from the Fall Color Collection :)

I quite like the combination of colors in the quad. Like my colleague said: "I just get so happy when looking at those colors!"

Sugarpill Sweetheart look

I had a bit of time to play around with some fun, colorful makeup today and decided to bust out my beloved Sweetheart palette from Sugarpill :)

Colorful fun :)

 I've been in such a terrible makeup rut lately. I've done bold lips and black liquid liner a lot and even a couple of basic smokey eyes but that's about as fun as it's been. I've really missed doing bright colors :)

I did feel a bit rusty when doing this, but at least I finished the look, so here you go! ;)

Evil Eye

This look is basically just me playing around with the Evil Eye palette from the MAC Me Over! collection - hope you like it ;)

The things in the collection that stood out to me the most were definitely the blue and green fluidlines, but that's mostly because I'm pretty obsessed with fluidlines in general and don't have anything that looks like those two ;)
Overall, I do think MAC Me Over! is a really nice collection with something for everyone :)

We had a super fun MAC Me Over! event at the counter I work at and I got to do makeup on some lovely girls:) We took polaroid pictures of all the people we made over and put them on a big MAC Me Over! wall and I think it looked pretty awesome! Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures to post on here :/

FOTD: Bright Fuchsia!

Wohooo, a new POST!

I don't really have any excuses for not posting other than being away on vacation for three weeks and just being busy in general for what seems like forever.
I had so many exciting things I wanted to post over the summer but I'm already back at the university. Wow. I really wish I had more than 24 hours a day! ;)

Hope you're all doing great :) Thank you so much to those of you who e-mailed me while I was taking this little unintended break :)
And thanks to everyone else for sticking around :D

S/S Trend tutorial: Pop Classic

"Better late than never" seems to have become an increasingly popular sentence for me to start my posts with. But it's true, isn't it? :)
In any case, here goes the pictures and tutorial for the Pop Classic summer trend that I wrote about a couple of weeks ago :)

Face of the Day: Love+

I'm loving the combination of red and purple at the moment, so it seemed like an obvious choice to use those colors when I had some time to play around with my makeup today.

I used my very favorite red eyeshadow: Sugarpill's Love+, but was quite surprised to see how pink it looked with the other colors. Oh well, I still think it's purrrtty :)

There are two different lip looks behind the cut - one version that's more matte and one that's more glossy. I did the matte one first, but while I liked the fading effect, I really didn't like how it looked with the eyes, so I ended up putting a gloss on top :)

MAC S/S Trend: Pop Classic

This post is pretty much the most productive thing I've done all weekend. But I have enjoyed some time off and feel just a little bit more ready to get started with the super busy week I have ahead of me.
Hope you all had a great weekend as well :)

Anyways, here goes the first post about the MAC Spring and Summer trends for 2011!

Spring just kinda went by a little too fast, but at least the post is in time for summer! ;)

Surf, Baby! haul + swatches!

I'll tell you one thing: If I had more money, I'd have gotten more products from Surf, Baby!

But oh well.. I bought four of these things myself, and that's a lot in my student budget! ;)

Keep reading to see swatches :)

Favorites of the month: April '11 + Giveaway

This post is definitely a bit overdue, but better late than never, right? :)
I always love watching "favorites videos" and reading "favorites posts" when other people do them, so I want to make sure that I do them when I have time as well! :)

Quite Cute!

I've had these pictures on my camera for weeks, but haven't gotten around to posting them.

I did this look using mainly products from the MAC Quite Cute collection, which I was pretty excited about - mostly because of Candy Yum-Yum, which is the most amazing, matte pink lipstick. Ever.

I wasn't really excited about the eyeshadow palette at first, but after using it a couple of times, I actually think it is exactly what it's supposed to be: cute ;)
The pastel colors are great for spring, and even though they're far from being the most pigmented shadows I've ever used, they work well for certain looks, especially if paired with more pigmented, matte shades to give the looks some depth.
All I used besides the eyeshadow palette in this look was actually a colored base in the crease!
And I'm honestly surprised at how much I like the pink color in the palette! Definitely my favorite of the four :)

Playing with colors, glitter and lip tars!

Bright colors are awesome!
I finally had the time to play around with some fun makeup today, and this is what I ended up with! :)

MAC FashionFlower

"A stylish fusion of the floral and the fashionable in a summer colour collection that evokes the cool side of the hottest season. Join these rare blossoms and succumb horticulturally to a bouquet that's equal parts fleur and couture!"

It's now up on MAC's website! (which means I can post about it, haha!)

Are you getting anything from the collection?

I already have Alpha Girl beauty powder (which is super pretty!) and I'm in love with the Lip Gelees ;)
I don't think I'll buy anything, but that's just because I have other things I need to spend my money on right now :/ But! The collection doesn't come out where I live until next month, so I have some time to decide ;)

Poll: Should I do trend posts this season?

I'm not sure if anyone remembers, but I did a few posts about the spring and summer trends around this time last year, and was wondering if you would care to see posts like that this year as well.

If you have no idea what kind of posts I'm talking about, you can take a look at the ones from last year :)

I love sharing different takes on the trends, but those kinds of posts and tutorials do take some time to do so I don't really want to bother, if you don't care to read/watch them!

I'd love to know what you think :)

Trend posts and tutorials?
I'd definitely read posts and watch tutorials!
I would read the posts
I would watch the tutorials
I wouldn't read the posts or watch the tutorials
I might read/watch some of the posts/tutorials but don't really care free polls

Doing makeup on my sister :)

My 13 year old sister wants to wear makeup for an upcoming event, and has asked me to do it.

So, what kind of makeup do you do on a 13 year old?
She doesn't usually wear any makeup besides mascara, so I wanted to do something sweet and natural.

This past weekend, we did a little "trial" and I think the look we ended up doing is really nice on her! The gold liner makes it a little more fun than your standard super-neutral look but without being overpowering :)

Purple lips!

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I love purple lips!
And! I think I've just found my new favorite purple lip combo :D

Favorites of the month: March '11

I've really been getting back into makeup this past month, so I'm excited to finally have some favorite products to share :)

I'd love to know if you'd like to see posts like this every month :)

New crackle polishes from Depend: Cracked Effect!

I'll admit that I have absolutely no idea when these crackle polishes from Depend came out, but I just found them at a shop today and acted all too crazy and excited ;)

I got a blue(5002), a red(5004), a pink(5003) and a white(5000).
I saw a purple one at the shop as well, but I didn't get it - mostly because it looked more like a dark purple than a super bright one, which is what I would have preferred :P

Make Up Store Magazine inspired: Bold brows, eyes & lips!

Have I told you that I love Make Up Store Magazine?!
They're always super inspiring, and the latest issue is no exception :)

I wanted to do a look inspired by the picture on page 150 in the newest magazine (issue #15), and this is what I came up with :)

Acid Green eyes look + tutorial

It's already been a month since my last post! Wow.
I've been super busy with school and exams - I spent 80 hours at the university one week! Pretty crazy.

But I have a new look for you - and there's a tutorial too!! :)

Keep reading to see more pictures, and a list of products used :)

Blue liner... And lips?! + tutorial

I guess the inspiration for this look came from a look one of my colleagues did at work, but I used completely different products and it turned out a bit different :)

I just really think the blue lips are fun :D

Bright Fuchsia look

Back with another FOTD :)
I did this look for work at MAC this past Saturday. It's amazing what makeup can do, really! I slept for just two hours the night before, and I still managed to look (and feel) awake ;)

Once again, Photobucket seems to be messing with the brightness of the pictures and I'm thinking I need to find another way to post them ;)

Crazy new hair and matching makeup :D

OK, so the makeup isn't actually "matching" my new hair at all, but I definitely did the makeup with the hair in mind. I just love greens and purples with red hair! :)

You won't believe how happy I am that I finally have the chance to post FOTD pictures!
I've been stressed out with exams and haven't had the energy to do makeup at all, but I've missed it so much! Hope you're all doing great :)

For some reason, Photobucked decided to tone down the vibrancy of the colors in these pictures, so they're not as good as they shold be. Sorry about that, but I have no idea what to do about it! :(
