darker than usual

I've been mega inspired lately. Mostly by my ultimate girl crush at Killer Colours. I have to applaud her obvious respect for design; it shows on her blog layout and picture quality! She posted a simple smokey-eye tutorial recently that I think you all should check out! I used her technique the other day with a fat Wet And Wild liner, and Evil Shades - Dryad.. which I am SO in love with. I think it might be in my top 5 favorite eyshadows. Big deal, right?!

I picked up 2 Cover Girl lipsticks tonight at the grocery store.. Smoky, and Entwined. Smoky is a dark brown with copper shimmer, and Entwined is a dark berry with a bit of shimmer. Both are gorgeous shades I CANNOT WAIT to wear out, very soon. Tryna break out of my lipstick fear.

I hope you like this look.. I don't really dig my bangs parted to the side. Also, I'm considering cutting my hair! Not sure yet.

I used:
UDPP and PE as uze
- Aromaleigh - Sabine all over top lid and blended up and out a little, also patted onto lower lashline with tiny angle brush.
-Urban Decay - Sin used above Sabine to blend and soften edges. Also on inner-v.
- Aromaleigh - Hot Stuff on middle lower lashline and patted on the middle of top lid, barely visible.
- Too Faced lava gloss liner in black, with matte black shadow patted on top to keep it from transfering to my browbone, gross.
- LIPS - the dark berry shade in one of my Pixi lipstick palettes.
*Sabine looks like a dark red in the jar, but when applied it turns into this beautiful rich brown!*



  1. I have two of those new Cover Girl lipsticks and they're both purple, "Divine" and "Embrace".

  2. It turned out lovely! I also love Killer Colors looks :)
