Generously rim the entire eye with VS Makeup Eye Liner in Black Velvet. Trace the pencil above the upper lashline and below the lower lashline. Gently smudge the color with the opposite tip of the pencil.
Using VS Makeup Eye Shadow Quad in Overnight Sensation, apply the crease shade to the upper lashline and blend up toward the browbone, then apply it below the lower lashline. Smoke out the intense color by blending with a brush or with fingertips.
To make eyes “pop,” add instant sparkle with a touch of VS Makeup Hypergloss Eye Shimmer in Night Lights.
Apply several coats of VS Makeup Voluptuous Volume Mascara. For mega-volume, dust lashes with VS Pro Flawless FX Translucent Finishing Powder between coats of mascara. 2012

Hooded eye, basic makeup

It is amazing how applying a darker eye shadow to my outside "crease" or outer edge of my
 eye lid, increases the visual appearance of my entire eye. By applying cosmetic application
 for hooded eyes, this gives an illusion of lift, wake fullness, and soft alert to my affect of my

To use the term, "I am still on the fence" on using a shimmer or matte base, I miss matte and low shimmer, (soft pearl finish) 

Personally I have found that an eye shadow with a soft shimmer blends 75% easier, than matte shades

The best of both worlds, use a matte base, such as eye shadow insurance or tarte eye shadow pink base with doe foot applicator, a soft shimmer in crease, dark near eye lashes, and matte dark in out V

Olivia Wilde Perfect Eyeshadow Look for Spring

Queen of Eye Makeup of All Time and Forever Olivia Wilde (yes, that is her official title) has a spring-friendly eye makeup idea for you that I'm pretty sure you're all going to love, love, LOVE. So be sure to send her flowers or something. Let's get in there and get to the details, shall we?

She's got a ring of purple eyeliner around her lids, surrounded by...

Shimmery purple eyeshadow. Then there's a pink eyeshadow dusted into her creases for shading an extra pop of color. It's all finished off with some intense mascara and maybe a strip of faux lashes.

Simple but lovely—and the color combo is so season-appropriate. So if you're looking for your next eye makeup look to copy, I strongly suggest you give this one a go. Hey, it worked for Olivia Wilde.

Do's and Don't. Buying for a makeup junky by

I wanted to share the latest blog that I have been reading
the makup talk blog

One of her post really caught my attention, and was "almost" perfect. Below in yellow is the makup talk blog original words and in pink is my own thoughts. I hope you enjoy as much as I have.

Shopping for a Beauty Queen: 
The Dos andDon’ts

I assume that if you’re following this blog, thenyou probably have a pretty decent understanding of all things beauty. But justbecause you have all that knowledge doesn’t mean the people buying you giftsthis holiday season do!

The holidays are the best time to buy for a makeup hobbyist. Why? Most of the middle to highend products releases limited editions, holiday palettes and travel size. This time year is also a makeup lover’s time to shine, due to Mothers Day discounts,and limited edition releases. 

Sneakily print this article out and slip it underyour significant other’s/parent’s/clueless bestfriend’s pillow to make surethey know all the dos and don’ts of shopping for a makeup fanatic like you!(And, if you need some gift ideas, make sure you check out MalkeupTalk’s Holiday Shopping Guide!)

Also using Pinterest.comto make a wish list board has been helpful for me in saying why, I think I needa product, (as if I ever need more makeup, hoarding cosmetic issues anyone?)

DO go to reliable stores.
Itmay seem easy and appealing to shop for makeup products through online storeslike Amazon and Ebay, but there’s a strong chance that the items you’re buying are fake! It mightcost a little extra, but your beauty obsessed friend will be glad you made theeffort to get her authentic items.

Stores with great customer service for people who are not into makeup but want to purchase cosmetics for someone  else is, MAC, Sephora and Macy's cosmetic individual cosmetic counters. My experiences at these stores has routinely been reliable on friendlinessgenuine personality, and knowledgeable service. 

For quality make-up, hair,or skin products, try stores like Sephora or Ulta. Or, you can usually order directly fromthe brand at their website.

DON’T get skin products (unless she tells youexactly what she wants)!
Thething about faces is that everyone is different. Even if your favorite soapkeeps your skin smooth and soft, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’llwork for other people. Buying skin products of any time can be a bit of a risk,so only purchase the exact items she asks for – or don’t get any at all!

This is so true;I have had to use the same skin products for almost a decade. I know what works for me, on avoiding the flakes, and break outs. Changing or experimenting myskin routine is not worth a massive break out or worse, and infection andscarring.

Ifyou really like skin products as gifts, why not try bath products instead?They’ll be less likely to irritate. I’m in love with Lush productsright now, and they make great gifts!

On this Ihave disagree, I have a history of getting an infection from the scents, and detergentsin bath products.

DO force her to try something new.
Ifyour friend is a true beauty fanatic, then she probably already has all thebasics. Instead of gifting the beauty queen in your life another mascara, findsomething fun and out there that she doesn’t already have: make her experiment!The best gifts tend to be the ones you wouldn’t buy for yourself.

Sephora has gift collections around the holidays, containing, large collections of the years favorite perfumes, mascaras and lip products. Great ideas I congratulate you.

Liptattoos seemincredibly crazy, but the could be perfect for a party gal who likes to go outon the weekends. Does your bestie always wear black eyeliner? Gift her purple eyelinerto help mix it up.

This year the trend is nail art. It is easy and fun to try. Another idea is a gift card for aMAC or Estee Lauder makeup application, or manicure at a new salon.

DON’T throw away the receipt.
Thisreally applies to any gift you purchase for a friend, but especially withmake-up, don’t throw away the receipt! Some things just don’t work oneverybody, no matter how great a color looks in the package. Even worse, whatif your friend has an allergic reaction and can’t use your awesome gift? Hangon to the paperwork just in case.

I have lost track of how many returns I have made in the last two years. As I perfect my cosmetic collection, I have also become critical of the products’ quality, and color payoff. If it is not perfect, I cant justify it staying in my already bulging collection. 


Retro makeup, Am I the only one missing Max Factor

Am I the only one missing Max Factor?
Dear Ashley, I remember my first Max Factor purchase was from Kmart. I bought a face setting powder and a mascara. I was in High school at the time and it was in August before the school year began in the fall. Max Factor please return to the U.S. Sincerely, your fan Kimmy


Lipstick a Merle Norman (lip candy)

I swatched almost all of the tubes my local Merle Norman has in stock. The employee Barbra was friendly with eye contact and relatable conversation.

My purchase "juicy secret" it is a moisturizing, buildable color great for warm climates and year around "your lips but better" color. My tube is gold and I can say these are a dupe for the Too Faced gold tube lipsticks that debut this past 2012 Christmas

My next purchase will probably be Pillow talk, I was impressed with this warm pink, to me it is a dupe for what Doris Day would wear in the movie Pillow Talk with Cary Grant
