Sister Make Over

So some of you may know I have 1 sibling who is 10 years younger then me. This is her =) Her nickname is Boney because she is just that LOL.She spent the weekend over my house so I decided to do her make up among other things such as nails and facial.
\

I put Urban Decays Jet in the crease then I put Killa Monroe's shock star which is a glitter on part of the lid. I lined the top lash with Bobbi Brown's gel liner in Ink. She was too scared to let me line her lower lash line so she lined it with Mallys black eyeliner pencil.We finished the eyes with L'Oreal false lash mascara.
I filled her brows in with dark horse eye shadow.


I used Kat Von D's Backstage Bambi on her lips with some random clear lipgloss. So what do you think about her make up ? Would you wear a look like this ? *Smooches*

Eye of the day

So I told you guys in an earlier post I bought a new camera. Im completely in love with it however Im still trying to find the best settings for make up swatches. I used Urban decays Naked palette for this look.

I used sin in the inner corners of my eyes.I then put toasted beside that and blended the two together. I put hustle on the outer v to deepen the color. I blended out the harsh lines then used smog as my highlight. For some reason it isnt showing up in the pics  =\

I filled my eyebrows in with a lip liner brush and a brown eyeliner pencil.I lined my top lash line with Bobbie Browns gel liner in black.

I finished the look with L'Oreal false lash mascara. 

I hope the swatches look ok as I will continue to work on the settings until the pictures look true to real life.*Smooches*

Fleck Effect spring 2012 collection

Maisie can be best described as a sheer turquoise blue base with reflective Mylar flakes that shift from green to blue.

Opal can be best described as a sheer green base with reflective Mylar flakes that shift from bright green to blue.

 Chloe is a sheer coral pink base with two types of duochrome Mylar flakes: red-orange to gold and gold-green to blue.

L-R  Zoya Pinta topped with Zoya Chloe,Zoya Ibiza topped with Zoya Maisie and Zoya Tallulah topped with Zoya Opal.

Another shot that doesnt include my shadow in my nails LOL. I decided to try them on different Zoya colors since others have showed how they look on the True collection or over black. I think these flecks or flakies as I call them would look best on darker colors.They do show up on lighter colors but not as good. I wouldnt recommend wearing them alone bc they are very sheer and meant for layering.These retail for $8 a piece or you can get the entire collection from www.zoya.com for $24.

(These products were sent to me from their PR department for review but this has no influence over my opinion about these products)

Zoya Cho topped with Lynnderella One Nutty Fruitcake


Zoya Cho, she is beautiful on her own but as we all know I love glitter.



Zoya Cho topped with Lynnderella One Nutty Fruitcake (without flash)


Another shot with flash. This is my first and only Lynderella polish that I purchased during Llarowe's free shipping deal. Her polishes are costly but I think this one was worth the money and I will be adding more of her polishes to my collection. 

You can purchase Zoya Cho HERE and Lynnderella One Nutty fruitcake HERE. I love this combo =) Do you have these polishes ? Would you try this combination ? Also can you tell I used a new camera ? I think the colors came through better in these shots and I cant wait to take more.*Smooches*

Zoya True Collection (Spring 2012)

  • Cho – vanilla shimmer metallic
  • Farah latte beige cream        
  • Bevin – pale sage green cream        
  • Skylar – silvered slate blue metallic     
  • Tru – gilded purple orchid metallic       
  • Lotus –  light lotus purple metallic     

 First off I want to apologize about the delay getting these swatches up. It has been cloudy for most of this past week.Also I want to let everyone know I ordered a newer model camera so hopefully my swatches will turn out closer to real life.
Zoya Skylar a medium steel blue with a softened, dusty look and speckled by visible gold and silver shimmer flecks.A soft blue that's bold without being too dark, bright or flashy

Another shot of Skylar.


Zoya Bevin is a dusty, medium sage green with teal tones and a creamy opaque finish. A stylish and unique shade for when you want something different from the usual mint green.


Zoya Tru is a saturated, red-toned grape purple with speckled shimmer that reflects gold, orange and red.Bold and saturated warm color made even more interesting with color-shifting shimmer

Another shot of Tru.

Zoya Lotus on all fingers except the pinky which has Zoya Neeka for a comparison.Zoya Lotus is a very soft, dusty blue-toned amethyst purple with colorful shimmer that reflects pink, red and gold.? A dreamy smoky shade for purple lovers that looks both soft and luminous.Zoya Neeka is clearly darker then Lotus.I think they both are worth having.
Overall Im very pleased with this collection.Bevin has to be my favorite even though Im a purple lover. I dont have any colors that look like Bevin.All of these polishes are full coverage so 2 coats and a top coat was all I needed. I will post the nudes shortly. 
This entire collection is available on Zoya's website which is www.zoya.com.You can buy them separately for $8 each or the entire collection for $48.

New Years Eve Mani













So for new years eve I decided I wanted to do a glitter bomb for my nails. I picked 4 different glitter polishes that just jumped out at me when I was picking my colors. L-R Zoya Ivanka,Zoya Mimi,OPI Glow up already,and OPI Simmer and shimmer.

I blurred it here so you could see how sparkly it is =) First I did two coats of Ivanka as a base then I put Mimi just on the tips. I then started layering the two OPI's. I dont know exactly how many coats I used of those two but it I know it was alot. Anyways my nails looked amazing bring in the new year. I hope you all had a good time bringing 2012 in.*Smooches*
