I’ve been playing with my Cinderella Storylook Palette a lot lately, & decided to give a few of the unused colors a whirl since I was in the mood for something gold to make my eyes pop against the deep red shirt I was wearing. (Which I got at Target for $5, btw. Score.)
I should mention I was on vacation this weekend for the first time in six years, and although I was in the mood for something different I didn’t feel like fussing with my makeup too much, hence the neutrality of this look. I thought about doing something nice & bright, but the mental image of myself strolling through an upper class, downtown area with bright blue eyeshadow and black eyeliner melting down my face didn’t sound too appealing. Though I suppose I could have made a little money off wealthy tourists who thought I was a mentally unstable bum. Hmm, I may have missed a valuable opportunity to make a little money off this trip. Damn.

I’m putting together my next tutorial and needed a few things, so in the midst of my holiday shopping I swung by Ulta and the MAC store to gather a few supplies. Without revealing too much about the look I have planned next, I’ll just say I needed some lighter neutral colors with subtle sparkle.
I originally planned on getting most of what I needed at MAC, but found all these amazing eyeshadows and pigments from NYX. Best of all, everything was on sale, buy one get one 50% off. I’ve played around with the colors a bit since getting them home and honestly they’re so amazing I don’t think I could have found better, even at a higher price point.
The one thing I did pick up at the MAC store was a lipstick in Twig. I have plenty of neutral lipstick shades in my collection, but after seeing this on Pinterest a few days ago, I knew it had to be a part of my next look. For some reason the swatch looks a lot more pink than the color actually is – so for those of you scratching your heads, it’s got a lot more brown in it than you can see here.
I’m sure by now you’re all wondering what look I have up my bedazzled little sleeve – guess you’re gonna have to wait and see
After work I’ll be heading to the The Fox Theater for the Santigold concert, so I wanted to go for a slightly more dramatic look that’s wearable enough for work but dark enough for a nigh-time show.
I used my Spun Sugar palette by Too Faced to create a dark brown smokey eye and used lots of L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara to create the illusion of fake lashes since I didn’t feel like wearing any today. As for my lips, I lined and filled my lips in with NYX lipliner in Burgundy, then outlined that with Wet n’ Wild pencil eyeliner in Black to darken it up a bit. I topped that off with L’Oreal Infallible Lipstick in Persistent Plum and added just a touch of Stila Lipglaze in Raisin to the center of my bottom lip for shine. After that I just dusted my cheeks with a little bronzer and that’s it!
Hope you guys like the look! Now, off to the concert I go! If you’re interested to see how it went, I’ll be tweeting from the venue so follow me if you haven’t already,
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmaaaaas….oooooOoooon my f*ckin faaaace! HA, that’s a good Christmas carol, I should record that.
But before I get started on my “A Very Jackie Christmas” cd, I decided to do a holiday tutorial for you guys. I look forward to the holidays every year, especially now that I’m a beauty guru as it gives me a chance to put together a series of festive looks for all your holiday parties. The first installment is the glittery, icy blue look I’ve decided to call Snow Fairy at the suggestion of my YouTube viewers. It’s super sparkly, super easy and affordable. It’s like the gift that keeps on giving!
You can always opt to wear this blue eye look without the glitter if you’re not a fan, but I feel like it really brings everything together and makes it look like freshly fallen snow on your eyelids. And it looks absolutely lovely when the light catches the tiny flecks of iridescent sparkle.

New Years 2010 is upon us and I can’t think of a better way to welcome 2011 then hot pink lips and lots of gold glitter. This look is really easy to do and won’t end up all over your face after a night of drinking and dancing, or in my case night of watching my aunts argue. Such a wild life I lead!
