Series: Pretty in Pink_Look 2; Vice Palette_Pretty in Pink


Here is my latest Pretty in Pink look (also technically the fourth look from my Vice Palette series). This is a brighter, edgier look than the last one (click here). I played around with graphic eyeliner and a darker, brighter pink. I must say I'm really impressed with the wear of Urban Decay eyeshadows. The following pictures were all taken 7 hours after inital application without an eyeshadow primer!

Series: Pretty in Pink_Look 1


Have you seen the latest beauty look to come out of Chanel's Cruise 2012-13 Collection? It's very pink. Pink eyeshadow is a bit scary for me. I have friends who wear it well, but for the most part I feel that with my pale complexion, it makes me look a bit sick. I do, however, have a pink-themed event coming up. So, all things considered, I felt that I should try out some pink eyeshadow looks. I will be posting the results of my quest to find a pink eyeshadow look that doesn't make me look ill in a Pretty in Pink eye look series.. Without further ado, here is Look 1:

Holy Grail Foundation: Kat von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation


I know I've raved about Kat Von D's Lock-It Tattoo Foundation before- when I reviewed a sample of it in this post- and it wasn't even the right shade for me. Sight unseen, I took a guess at what shade would match me (Light 44, btw) and got a wonderful friend in America to find it for me and bring it back to Australia with her. Why did I have to do that? It's near impossible to get here in Australia. Turns out, it was difficult to find in America, too. The foundation is sold out a lot of the time, and for good reason, too.

New Year's Eve 2012/13 Eye Look


Happy New Year! To kick off the new year, I thought I'd share my eye look from last night/ this morning. I usually go all out on New Year's Eve but this year I decided to skip the falsies and make my eye look more interesting with smaller details you'd miss if you weren't looking closely. It's mixed metals, graphic eyeliner and lots of shimmer and glitter.

Happy New Year!!

I hope 2013 is a year of happiness, success and love for all of you.

Much love,
