    Glossy Metallic Eyes

    These two pictures have been stuck in my inspiration folder for a while, but I can't figure out how to achieve this look, even my MAC pigments don't come close! The first one is by Troy Jensen, and as usually the products he mentioned can't really be what he was using on her! TROY JENSEN...

    I never buy cream eyeshadows and liners in pots...

    ... because I am afraid that they will dry out quickly, as that happens a lot with foundations and mascaras I use. I would love to buy some Benefit cream eyeshadows and a few of Bobbi Browns gel liners and cream shadows, but they are too expensive for me to only use a small amount of product...

    Brush for Contouring & Blush

    Hi Specktrettes! I need a very soft (!!) brush that I can use to contour my face and apply blusher. My face is small, so it should allow for precise application.

    I enjoyed reading this, so I thought I would share it with you Quote: So the other day, folks in the comments were talking about leggings. I'm pretty agnostic about leggings, but the whole discussion (which centered on the fact that it can be *really* hard to look good in leggings)...
