Cold Chameleon

Cold Chameleon

For this looks I wanted to mix a few MAC's pigment together for a dark, metallic, messy look, bronzed cheek, and a natural rose lip. Did a braided headband (with my own hair- which wasn't as easy as I thought) & wore my Bausch and Lomb Natural colors in Platinum contacts.

Review on Bausch and Lomb Natural colors in Platinum (ordered from http://lensmarketplace.com).

I looked at reviews and videos online before I ordered & although they were a dramatic change they looked pretty natural. After almost 2 weeks I finally received my order, so I'm not happy with the shipping time. They don't sit right on my eye but they only had one size so I didn't have a choice so they're a little bit uncomfortable and move around a little. They look really fake to me so I didn't like them at first but I showed my husband and mom and they both really liked them so I figured I'd wear them.

I also noticed that when I put my usual brown eyeliner on my waterline, it rubbed off the the lenses making them really blurry....so that kinda sucks.

Hope you like it!

Shadow Below

Shadow Below

For this look, I wanted to do a smokey black and outline the eyes, but needed to do it quickly. I went for thick black liquid eyeliner on the top but used eyeshadow on the bottom so the shading is softer and not as harsh and dark as the top. Used my Velour lashes for a softer, more natural lash look, neutral peachy/pink lip and soft pink cheeks.

Hope you like it!

Love Sick Skies

Love Sick Skies

Sunday I asked my husband if he had any requests for what to do with my makeup and he said to do something with light blue and red. Since I had time, I decided to go all out and do something more creative since I didn't have to go work or school.

Filthy Mut

Filthy Mut

I was going for a grunge, punk feel for this look; I did a simple medium-dirty brown smokey eye & pale pink lip. I wanted to try and compliment the grey contact lenses I recently purchased and thought brown was a good choice to do so. Paired it with some long rusty earrings and a black graphic T

Velour Lashes, Lash in the City

Velour Lashes! - Lash in the City!
Velour Lashes! - Lash in the City!
Velour Lashes! - Lash in the City!
:)

I’ve wanted these lashes for months now; finally ordered a pair and got my order in 2 days! So for this looks I wanted to focus solely on the quality of the Velour Lashes, and how beautiful & natural they look.

Lash in the City Review:
I choose Lash in the City because they are thicker & fuller than the other styles Velour Lashes has (except for “Your Day to Shine” which will be the next pair I order). Velour Lashes pricing was a shocking at first, but after I got my order and saw how great the quality is and how well put together the lashes are, it’s worth the money in my opinion.

The lashes are bound together tightly and don’t come off the band easily; the strips are very long so they fit across from corner to corner (I even had to snip a bit off the edges to fit my eyes) Overall, I LOVE this product and will be taking very good care of these and plan to order more in the future.

NOTE: I do NOT plan on putting mascara my Velour Lashes to preserve their quality and shine.



I found this pic of the Velour Lashes online and LOVED it, it helped me see a bunch of their lashes all at once which helped me decide which ones I wanted because I could compare the shapes, & thickness of the lashes easily:
