Eyeshadow Look - Vegas Swimming Pool

Hi! omg. two updates in two days? wtf???

So, I came up with this look a while ago and its been a staple. It has
a sister look (which I actually came up with first) called Dubai Sunrise which I will post at another time. Neither of them has much to do with the places they're named for.


Outer half of lid: Makeup Forever Star Powder #960 Turquoise

Inner half of lid: Flirt! Glamourazzi Palette, second color from ri
ght (I think its Showstopper) more or less a fleshtone
Outer part of cr
ease: Flirt! Glamourazzi Palette, color on far right (I think its Golden Lady) brown that looks dark gold when its applied. I always think this is going to be darker than it is :)
Inner part of crease & under eyes: Mac pressed shadow in Amber Lights, its a bright brassy/gold

Mascara: 2 coats Peter Thomas Roth Lashes to Die for the Mascara. Two tricks to
mascara application I've learned: 1. wiggling brush side to side as you move up 2. In addition to wiggling back and forth and moving upward, rotating the brush at the same time (i know, its a lot of stuff to do), but this prevents clumping for the most part and with this brush that has two different types of bristles its necessary.

Upper lid: Mac Fluidline in Blacktrack
Outer waterline: Beautique black eyeliner pencil
Inner waterline: Sephora eyeliner minis in Plum on and a
little bit on the outer corner, connecting it to the upper eyeliner (you can't really see it, so probably not necessary)

Blush: Flirt! Bronzer/Blush in Sweet Desire applied to cheekbones, nose, forehead, upper lip and chin.

I didn't use foundation today, I put on my Makeup Forever primer and then used this stuff that I don't really understand that was given to me by my friend Kyle of FaceCandy called Dr. Brandt's Pores No More. I have no idea what it is. It smells kinda funny. Not bad, but still, kinda funny. The instructions say "use am after cleansing and toning. re-apply throughout the day, as necessary" Its flesh colored. And sheer when you put it on. It tends to make my powder go on wicked smooth, but I don't really know if its hiding my pores. I'm perplexed by it. But I'm almost out of foundation, so it seemed a better choice today. On top of primer and that weird stuff I put on concealer and powder and thats it.

Thanks for reading!

Up next: my search for foundations continues! Probably another day-long review.


  1. your photographer is a master at his craft.

  2. yes. the 2/5 pictures that he took are fantastic. but i think the other photographer who did the other three is better..
