Wannabe Copper

Well this look was an epic fail that actually didn't turn out so bad. I used China Glaze's Harvest Moon from the Hunger Games collection of nail polishes on my nails, and used the most coppery-ish eyeshadow i had to match it. Unfortunately, it leaned way too pink for it to match my nails. I was so disappointed. I just kept thinking that if i had my Hunger Games Collection from Shiro Cosmetics, the eyeshadows match so PERFECTLY with the polishes, it's crazy. So i thought, what if i made this color look like i want it to by mixing it? So applied another color on top, and created a bit of my own duochrome. I achieved the look i wanted, or at least, as close as i could get it to what i had wanted. I was happy with it. It's looked copper from some angles, pink from another, and gold from another. Pretty cool. Also keep in mind, my lids are creased a bit and my eyes are horribly tired, and i just used my eyes for these next pics. I wore this to work and didn't have time to take pics beforehand. I wasn't going to post this, but i think it looks awesome and needed to be shared, even if it's a little worn. I worked, came home, took a nap and woke up and then decided i wanted to take pictures and post this lol.

i used my Scaredy Cat Cosmetics pigment in Cirrina, and Shiro Cosmetics Triforce, layered on top. In the crease i used Shiro Cosmetics Everything is Bears, and Revlon's Colorstay Eyeliner and Grow Luscious Mascara in Black. I wore red lips with this, but i didn't have anything on my lips when i took the pics. :p

hope you like it! thanks  <3 Sarah

I'm Back!

hey everyone! sorry i've been away for so long. i've been really tired and always running late, so i haven't been wearing makeup at all lately. i miss it. finally back with a new look for you. i noticed when browsing others' blogs, they don't blah-de-blah as much as i do. so i've decided to nix the descriptions of my looks, and just give you the products used and the pics. going to save me alot of time, and you alot of "omg she writes too much!" also i'm getting the Hunger Games Collection from Shiro Cosmetics soon, i'm just waiting for it in the mail anytime now. it's a 2 week turnaround, and it's been a week, i'm so excited to get it! i'm also planning to try Victorian Disco Cosmetics and get their whole Star Wars Collection too. i gotta wait for my taxes though. :p so expect to be seeing looks featuring those sometime soon. :) anyways, on to the look!

I used Scaredy Cat Cosmetics pigments in Unicorn Breath and Arctic Royale, And Shiro Cosmetics pigment in Mewtwo. My eyeliner is Urban Decay's 24/7 eyeliner in Rockstar, and my mascara is Revlon's Grow Luscious Mascara in Black. I used the Urban Decay eyeliner also on my lips, looks kinda chola lol. i'm trying to get in the habit of doing my makeup a little higher than the crease because my eyelids are hooded. it's just hard for me, cuz i think putting eyeshadow too close or all the way up to your eyebrows looks drag queeny. i don't have alot of space between my eyes and my eyebrows lol. doing your makeup that high looks awesome on alot of people, but idk if it's for me. i just know it would really be nice to see my makeup not only when i look down. oh well. and here's WAY too many pictures lol.

Hope you like it!
