Tutorial: Super Simple Shadow Storage Solution

Hey guys. So I’ve been working on organizing my growing collection of fullsize and mini shadow jars. I’m in a dorm and don’t have much space, so having them all just laying in my desk drawer wasn’t cutting it. So I decided to make little boxes so they can be on their side. Here’s the finished product.   What you need: thick paper scissors ruler pencil glue or double sided tape something pointy but dull to make creases with An eyeshadow jar is usually about 3 cm wide, and the sides of the box should be 1.5 cm...

Nail Art Tutorial: Dry Marble

This is a really short and sweet tutorial for the basic dry marbling technique. These are the polishes and technique I used for my Autumn Fire nail art. I’m awful at water marbling and I find that this method is a lot easier to get right and to clean up, plus you can do a lot of cool designs with it. Materials  plastic bag (like a sandwich bag, not a grocery bag) paintbrush or toothpick tape nail file tweezers or an exacto blade 2 or more polishes that will look good together and a top coat The polishes I’m using are...

FOTD September 25, 2015

 Yay! My first FOTD! It’s taken forever for me to post my face on the internet, but it looks like today is the day. I really need to learn how to take better closed eye pictures before the nest one -_- Today I was feeling pretty blue- not sad, but like I wanted to wear my favorite color. I definitely don’t wear it as often as I should, mainly because blue eyeshadow looks can very easily go wrong. But using a stunning sheer eyeshadow like Winter Again over neutrals is a foolproof way to add a little ethereal color into your eye...

My Pretty Zombie Eyeshadows

A few months ago I made my first order from My Pretty Zombie. I had heard some great things about their blushes and duochrome eyeshadows, so I picked up their Drugs Like Me sample set (which I’ll review in a later post) and two sample packs of eyeshadow. These swatches were taken in sunlight over bare skin, Wet n Wild Take On The Day Primer, and Elf Glitter Glue. Unicorn Pee is described on the site as “iridescent white blue with enough multi colored glitter to make you puke!” That’s completely accurate. It performs...

Orly Androgynie

  Orly Androgynie, three coats topped with Seche Vite. This is the polish I reach for when I want black nails with a little something extra. Androgynie is a black jelly with tiny gold flakes and a variety of color shifting hex glitters. Depending on the angle you view them the glitter shifts through different colors; orange to gold, purple to teal, and gold to green. The one issue I have with this polish is that the glitter sinks to the bottom, which makes it hard to get onto the brush. What I usually do is shake it up really well and...
