What are they exactly? What do they do? Why do I need one?

Do you feel that…

  • you need more coverage due to unevenness or veins?
  • you want to add a bit of color correctiveness to your eyelid area?

Answer yes to any of these? Then MAC Paint Pots are a great way to go. View Post

Part I – Finding Products

Being a Makeup Enthusiast, Makeup Collector, or Makeup Artist may seem like it takes a lot of money to do properly. This does not have to be the case. Everyone starts somewhere and if you don’t have the newest, fanciest, most high-end products on the market do not be discouraged.

I’ve compiled a list of resources to help you get started on your beauty journey. Products are a must, but spending thousands of dollars on them is not. If you haven’t learned anything about me yet, do know I LOVE a good bargain. Let’s get to the list now, shall we? View Post

Pink Nu-Grunge FOTD

Lately, I’ve been all over tumblr taking inspiration from just about everything. This weekend a few tags caught my eye – nu-grunge and grunge pastel.  I’ve put together this pink grunge-y face of the day look channeling this inspiration while using some of the products I’ve already reviewed on my blog.

Lime Crime Venus Palette

A year too late, but I finally got my hands on the Lime Crime Venus Palette! I purchased this through Dolls Kill during the BOGO sale after Christmas.  On Dolls Kill, the palette retails for $32, which is why I’m glad I waited instead of rushing to get it when it first came out and paying a premium.  My NEED for this palette never died even after all the controversy the brand has been experiencing (I know, I know), so I decided to purchase it through a third party site just to be safe.
