LFI: Blue Me Away

Hello, my Pretties!

I have a mini Look For Inspiration post for you today.


This LFI consists of the colors: bright blue, purple and green.


I applied the bright blue to my lid and in the inner corner of my eye and just a tad on my lower lash line.
The purple shade was then blended into my crease.
Green was added along the lower lash line.

I used a frosty white shadow around my ducts and skin tone shadow for the brow bone.

As for eyeliner, I used a black liquid eyeliner along the top lashes and a white pencil eyeliner on my waterline.  And of course, two coats of black mascara to finish the look.


To balance out the bright eyes, I did a muted lip of baby pink gloss.

I'm sorry to keep this so short but I am trying to give you all a break from my usual lengthy posts!

EOTD: Smoke Out

Hello, my Pretties...

I'm a little sad today.  I have been for a couple of days now.  My camera is broken!  OMG!!  What am I going to do without a camera?  I am a blogger...I NEED IT!  I don't know if it can be fixed or if I am just going to have to buy a new one but this is a major downfall.  It was new too.  Oh well.

So for now, I'm going to have to browse my computer and bust out some older pics of blog posts that were never brought to life.  I hope I have enough to last me until I can figure out what to do about this camera situation.

I did this look back on July 3rd.  It was never posted because I thought it was a major fail.  It was a dark, dusky, purple shade of eyeshadow and a lavender lip gloss.  Um, yeah...


On eyes: E.L.F. Mineral Eyeshadow in Royal on the lid
and E.L.F. Mineral Eyeshadow in Celebrity in the crease.
Eyeliner along lower lash line is Essence Kajal Pencil in Hola, Chica!



On lips: Avon Moisture Seduction in Violet Beauty.

I love purple but this time it proved to be a fail for me. I posted this look on Instagram and some of you liked it.  I don't know if you liked it, or you were just being kind ;)  I, personally, did not like this look.  Honestly, I believe it was the lips that threw off the entire look for me.  I am not used to this shade on my lips.  I think it washed out the entire face.

Oh well, we learn from our mistakes.  Not all my looks are winners!  LOL :)

EOTD: Hawaiian Glow

Hello, my Pretties!

Today I want to show off my newest Avon True Color Eyeshadow Duo in Hawaiian Glow.  Yesterday I posted my Avon Campaign 14 Haul where I introduced you to this darling.

You can see my last Avon Haul HERE.

Up close.

Fingertip swatches.

Inner wrist swatch on bare skin.



This is a very innocent and sweet eye look.  I used the peach shade on my lid and the taupe shade in my crease.  I am really liking these shadows.  Avon eyeshadows tend to be less pigmented than they appear in the pan and I've never made that a secret.  But, I am quite satisfied with these.

I love the feminine and demure look they create.  I feel like a little darling.

I don't know what it is but fashioning these shadows, I am really feeling like a LADY!
