My favorite look of the week (keep in mind it is very simple);

Eyes:
  • Stolen Moment EDES all over the lid
  • NARS Albatross brow highlight
  • Urban Decay Perversion eyeliner top and bottom
  • Black Mascara

Cheeks:
  • MAC Earthsine

Lips:
  • MAC Flight of Fancy


I don't do crease colors because I have such a heavy brow bone you can't see it anyway.  Lol.  

Hello HONYBR, and a huge Welcome to the thread! Most of us here are novices in one way or another so you're in good company. We just love makeup! The look that you created sounds very nice. BTW, I love Earthshine!

Glad you're joining us. bouquet.gif

hi girls. i have been absent because i havent been wearing makeup lately. so no new looks. i did get a pixie cut like a mix of anne hathaway and michelle williams. i luv those two. and just wanted a change. im always home so i dont mind experimenting haircuts. now i know what looks good on me. i totally love how easy this hair cut is. showering feels weird but way faster. and then it just dries quickly, and goes into pixie shape by itself. no hair drier or products. or even hair brushes. just a little hair comb. as you can tell im really lazy with my hair.

That's hysterical!
I'll bet you look adorable in your new hair cut. I'm so jealous. I have a huge head & my grandmother's big round face. I would look like a pumpkin w/ moss from the pumpkin patch on my head! ENJOY.

Just because you haven't worn makeup lately does not let you off the hook. You can still share some tips for holiday looks that you wore in the past or plan to wear this month.

Yay. Glad you'll be in our midst ! I need to be on a nail polish no buy too. I now have to replace my MAC BookPro. It's dead....caput! When I went to the Apple store on Saturday they said, "this computer is vintage, and....." I interrupted and said, " VINTAGE,". MY HANDBAG IS VINTAGE! The computer is only about 5 years old, and I know by technology standards that's ancient, but it shouldn't be dead! I'm just bummed about it. So, I need to get another computer. Until then, my iPad & iPhone will just have to do.

I've had short hair before and it just doesn't look good on me...doesn't suit my ample head & face.

Yes Earthshine became my go to this year.  It's natural enough but still some color.

 

I'm looking forward to December's theme!  I love, love, red lips so I go crazy in December.  Has anyone tried Hourglass's Icon extreme shine lipgloss?  heat.gif  Oh my, I own a good 5 red lips and this is my most "grown and sexy" one by far.

The looks being posted are all pretty. My favorite from the looks I did last week is still the Emerald Dusk look. I'm excited about the new holiday theme. I'm going to have to break out MAC Ruffian Gold for sure.

Kimibos, both looks sound amazing, and I love the products that you used. I'll have to look into
LCs RVV. I've been sidelined here a bit. I recently had surgery and I'm recovering slowly. I have some catching up to do! I purchased the Yachiyo brush and was surprised by how small it is. However, I really like it because it's super easy to handle. I find myself reaching for it more often than my MAC #s 138 & 168.

I have been frequenting the nail polish thread here on Specktra.  Upon learning about and seeking out swatches of Deborah Lippmann's nail polish, 'Cleopatra in New York', I happened upon a makeup look that was inspired by this nail polish.  In addition to going nicely with CINY nail polish (Black w/Gold glitter), I think the makeup look can be amended to create several holiday looks.  Upon cartoonchic's urging, I'm sharing the link to this look with all of you.  I found the nail polish at beauty.com.  I ordered it on Sunday and the polish arrived today, Tuesday 12/4...standard shipping, free.  I hope you enjoy this look and perhaps wear it as is or tweak it to your liking.

I would probably replace the blue with a green since I paired Cleopatra in New York with NARS Zulu polish, a dark green. But the blue is based off of Liz Taylor's Cleopatra, so it probably shouldn't be changed. What I look most is that the makeup is inspired by the polish.

 

And I hope you get well soon! bouquet.gif
