Starry, Starry Eyes

Channeling My Inner Vincent Van Gogh

Starry, starry [eyes]
Paint your palette blue and grey

For a birthday party last weekend, I put on sultry shades of blue and silver on my girlfriend’s eyes. The main palette was a limited edition Stila Blue Trio Eyeshadow.

To make the eyes pop, I used a loose white, shimmer powder on the inner corners of the eye.

For the finishing touch, I adhered bold, doll-like false lashes. KY Beauty sells these at wholesale prices. The website doesn’t display all the styles Online, so you can call to inquire.

Surprisingly, the lashes didn’t look too over the top with the smoke eye makeup. But just so you can get a sense of how dramatic these are, I’ve pasted them on our little furry friend, Rilakkuma (Japanese nickname for relaxing bear).

Daily GlamOh: Engagement Party Guest

Beauty for the Everyday Gal: Faye

Faye, a nurse and model, was attending her cousin’s engagement party at a lounge in Pasadena, CA. She usually does her night makeup in dark, charcoal colors so I did smokey eyes in gray and navy blue with an understated nude lip.

She has oily skin (though you can’t tell here because her face looks flawless), but it was dry on the surface. I suggested Korres Yogurt Cream for oily, dehydrated skin as her moisturizer (http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P116805&categoryId=B70).
