Cotton Candy Eyes


I’m not gonna lie, from time to time I get requests for tutorials using pink eyeshadow and I DESPISE pink eyeshadow. It’s just one of the few colors, in my opinion, that doesn’t belong on the eyes lol

But anyhow, I got inspired to use my new 120 color palette that My Beauty Mark Cosmetics sent me, so this is what I came up with! I blame Nicki Minaj for this look (doesn’t it look like something she would rock?) That, and staying up at odd hours of the night gazing at makeup inspiration photos for some of the ideas I come up with!


yummy, right? 😉

Smokey Bridal Makeup Tutorial

The Smokey Bridal Makeup tutorial everyone has been inquiring about in my last couple videos this week is finally here :)

If you haven’t already noticed, I am REALLY enjoying and getting my money’s worth out of my Urban Decay Naked Palette. If you don’t already own one, you might want to consider it so you can follow along with all the fun the rest of us are having ^_^ this is truly a makeup artist and makeup enthusiast must have!

Anyhow, as I’ve been discussing on Facebook and Twitter and here on the blog, I’d like to do a series of bridal looks. But being that bridal is such a large genre, I’d like to do a few looks to fit different styles for every bride. The smokey/glam bride is what I’d like to consider this one. Because bridal, quite frankly to me, isn’t just about a natural look. I thought I’d kick it up just a notch :)

here’s some photos of the look
