The Elusive-To-Me Smokey Eye

Smokey Eye For Dummies Like Me :)

This is probably the best demo of a smokey eye I have ever seen. I love love love the way the makeup artist explains what he is doing and why. I love that he demonstrates how you can just slap the color on and make it look good.

Now I'm don't have the awesome features of the model. And I don't think this eye makeup technique makes me look like a model. But I love how 'doable' this technique is.

I have to say though...that model needed to spit her gum out before they started taping! UGH!

I have used MAC shadows in Typographic, Copperplate, and Electra in this look. I am not sure what shadows he's using, so if you know have any idea let me know. I can't wait to try this with browns and taupes too!

Guerlain Meteorites (loose $51; pressed $65)

When I think of Guerlain I think of classy ladies in beautifully tailored suits. I think of old school charm and etiquette. I think girly...but grown up.

I have had my eye on the loose meteorites for quite a while now. When I test them, they seem to just give glow and good lighting, as opposed to that disco ball effect I get with the luminizers I've tried so far. I love everything about the Guerlain meteorites, except the price. That, and I have heard over and over how pain in the butt the packaging is.

Now Guerlain has come out with pressed meteorites. WOW! These avoid the messiness of the old school loose meteorites. Despite the heftier price tag I will most likely be buying these in the near future.

I have to say though, when I finally graduate and get a big girl job, and a big girl dwelling, I want one of those old school vanities. And I think then I will be getting the loose meteorites. It's just too beautiful to pass up - especially on a vanity!


Got Your Marbles?

I found some more droolworthy jewelry. It's a little place called 'Got all your marbles?'. The marbles are interchangeable, so your jewelry can match any outfit! What a genius idea!!!

I'm drooling over the Utility Necklace ($92-$122).

Mod Ring ($79-$99).
