Happy Independence Day!

Today we Americans honor our freedom from Great Britain and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.  I am celebrating with some patriotic eye makeup (and a beer)!

Makeup Tutorial Using Maybelline Forest Fury Palette

It’s been a long while since I’ve done a tutorial so I figured I’d carpe diem.  I’m using a Maybelline eyeshadow palette called Forest Fury.  There are very mixed reviews about this palette out there but what can I say, I’m on a palette kick and I’m a sucker for greens!

Today we’ll be creating this look.  Click through to read more!

New Makeup Looks with Toki Doki Palette

Yesterday I stopped into the Sephora in Soho and picked up something that made me excited about makeup again – Toki Doki’s Robbery Palette!  Let me back up for a sec.  It’s been a minute since I did any makeup posts.  The reason is twofold – one, I work at a pretty conservative office so my daily makeup has to be tame, and two, I got a little bored with the products I had.  However I’m a sucker for the clever adorableness that is Toki Doki, and this palette just happened to be on sale for the very sweet price of $39 (marked down from $49).  If you’re looking to snap one up, do it quickly because a MUA artist there gave me the inside scoop that they’re almost gone.  Just wanted to show you all this cool set and a look I did using the products!

The Robbery palette comes in a keepsake tin, with a big magnet to cuten up your fridge or file cabinet.  Aw!

Last Minute Halloween Makeup

Looking for a last minute Halloween idea?  Your makeup doesn’t have to be all blood, white pancake and black lipstick.  How about something colorful and dramatic?  This is a look I did several years ago, that could be easily adapted for Halloween.
