Pretty N' Purple

Well I decided that I needed some more purple in my makeup since I have many purple eyeshadows sitting around! :) This is what I came up with yet I don't think the pictures don't do it justice.

I mostly used the purples from the Venomous Villian Collection along with MAC graphology for the outer corners. I can't get enough of light purple, I love it! :)

The Last Touch of Summer

Hello everyone!

I decided today I needed to play with some of my new Venomous Villain stuff and I think it turned out pretty good! I did a white center, blended out with gold on either side with a red crease. Sadly I couldn't get the white and gold part to show up well on the camera, so I'm sorry about that!

The Last Touch of Summer

And here are the products I used,
Painterly Paint Pot (Base all over lid)
Nyx Milk Jumbo Pencil (Base in center of lid)
Nyx Geisha Eyeshadow (center of lid)

Red Eyes behind Wall of Villain

Well, yesterday I got the rest of my Mac Venomous Villain collection! I couldn't help but make a Villain wall and hid behind it, the eyes were just the icing on the cake.

Well, this beautiful haul includes the following;

Pigments = Brash & Bold, Melon & Push the Edge

Nail Lacquer = Mean & Green, Bad Fairy & Formidable!

Powder Blush = Bite of an Apple & Darkly My Dear

Beauty Powder = Her Own Devices, Oh So Fair & Briar Rose

Eyeshadow = Vile Violet, Vainglorious, Her Alter Image, De-Vil & Sweet Joy

Magically Cool Liquid Powder = Cajun & True & Light

Lipgelee = Resort Life

Mineralized Eyeshadow = She Who Dares & My Dark Magic

Lipglass = Wrong Spell, Revenge is Sweet, Hot House, Strange Potion, Devilishly Stylish & Wicked Ways

Lipstick = Dark Deed, Violetta, Sinister, Toxic Tale, Heartless & Innocence, Beware!

That's it ridiculas, but in all of this hauling I ended up with an extra Briar Rose. I'm unsure if I will use it as a giveaway on this blog or give to a family member, so stay tuned!!

As for the items, I'm super impressed with everything! I will be reviewing the products in the next couple of days and I will try to include a look with each one :)

Thanks for reading!

Bright N' Beautiful!

The last couple of weeks my eyes haven't been liking makeup so I usually only do one makeup look a day. Sadly I will probably be taking a couple weeks off but I thought I would post on a couple old pictures I never put up.

My Alien Green/Black eyes


This is probably one of my favorite looks, I can't get enough green! The products I used were MAC Painterly (all over the lid as base), Lime (on the lid), Bitter w/ Going Bananas on top (inner conner) and Carbon (outer corner).

I really wish I would have put black in the lower lashline but other all I am very happy.

Thank you for reading and have a fantastic weekend!

Finally got my 88 Palette! :)

Hello fellow Makeup Lovers!
Welcome to the first post of Makeup and other Distractions.

I just got my first 88 Matte Eyeshadow Palette yesterday and I'm very excited that I have pictures for you all to see.

The first look I did was a simple red and black look. My boyfriend picked out the colors I should use and it turned out alright.


I think it turned out alright though I wish I would have used a brown between the red and black but ... it's good!
