Colorful Nails!

Color is essential. Shimmer is essential. French manicures are elegant. So combine all three already!!!! My fave combo: turqoise tips with lime-green shimmery nails to complement my mermaid eye looks.  Also, I now do my nails at home. Nails are so simple to file and paint, and I find I can do them just fine at home, so why waste money at the salon? Tips for filing square-shaped nails: just file straight across, then hold your emery nail file (emery files are best...they're the flexible, bendable kind) at a straight vertical angle to your nails and file the sides straight up. File only in one direction as it helps prevent wear&tear. Tips for French manis: just practise. It's really easy. Don't obssess over any small errors you make. Often, we make errors stand out by attempting to fix them. No one will notice if your nail tip isn't perfectly straight or the color streaked a tiny bit. Also, several of my friends have pointed out they are unable to leave comments on my blogs. NO idea why that's so and I dunno what to do about it. Sorry I've been away so long but I'm wrapping up a "rooms-makeover" project and may post pics of it soon. Interior decoration is FUN!!!!

4U2 Gemtone Amethyste: Icy-Pink Makeup Look for Summer

Well, I dunno abt other girls but in the peak of summer I don't like wearing a lot of diff eyeshadow colors or heavy black smoky eyes or much kajal. I pref a cooler, simpler, lighter look. So here's a frosty, icy pink look I created using the 4U2 Gemtones Amethyste eyeshadow quad (shown above.) Dunno where this brand is made but I LOVE the Gemtones eyeshadows! Unlike most shimmery shadows, these are both ultra-shimmery ANd ultra-pigmented and they just glide on beautifully!The lipliner, lipstick, and bubble-gum pink lipgloss I wore with this look is also shown a swatch on my arm....I'm adding the tutorial to this look now, so enjoy and please do leave feedback. Feedback is always so important! Thanks and tc!

The Watercolor Eye- Trend for Summer '10

Here is "The Watercolor Eye" look I created. The Watercolor Eye is one of the biggest trends for Spring/Summer 2010 and it's all about a vibrant, playful burst of diff colors. Like a painting. I love violets matched with light, shimmery blues and silvers, so that is the palette I used for this look. I am going to try and post a step-by-step tutorial for this now...but not sure how to go about it lol. As in, not sure how this whole blog-thing works. So do check my blog for the tutorial to this will be posted somewhere, just not sure where? Ok, I think I managed to add a page to this post, and that page contains the step-by-step tutorial for this look. Do leave your comments and feedback!

Makeup Look:using Body Shop cosmetics

Here are two ethereal looks I created using the Body Shop items shown above. The silver&lilac look was done using the Body Shop's eye&cheek palette from Winter '09 + the eye definer in Glowing Amethyst. The oceany, mermaidesque look (left) was created using the new Body Shop shimmer cubes (Spring/Summer '10) + the eye definer in Vibrant Emerald. Now, here's the deal w/ Body Shop eye makeup. It's in gorgeous colors. All their eyeshadows just shimmer for hours. They're gentle on one's skin. They're great quality at a reasonable price. The eyeshadow "cakes" always contain lots of product. However, they're always so sheerly pigmented!!!!!! That is where the eye definers come in handy. The Vibrant Emerald eye definer is my current fave. I used it as an eyeshadow base to bring out the sizzle in the shimmer cubes to create the look above left. For the topmost look, I used the Glowing Amethyst eye definer all over the eyelids to bring out the lovely lilac, which otherwise would have been too sheer. If you have a special occasion to attend, and would like to request a look, pls do let me know and I'll see if I can create one!
