Smokey Teal look using Archetype and my glitter

 So I totally got tired of doing Holiday looks. And I needed to model a couple new teal feather collars/chokers I made recently to put up in my ETSY SHOP.  They aren't up yet but will be soon. Since I don't have a model and I'd prefer not to have to pay one, I just do it myself. It's more difficult taking the pics but it saves me moolah. Plus I get to do fun makeup on myself that matches these pretty things. Hee hee. :-)

 

Eyes:

  1. This is sooooo pretty! Ugh, you make me want to buy from Archetype again, which I promised myself I wouldn't do! I love how the rhinestones match flipside so well!

  2. I know Archetype is a pain...at least I ordered almost every single eyeshadow sample so I won't have to buy from them again. Phew! And thank you! :-)

  3. Damn Archetype. :(

    But this look is lovely! It matches your um...feathery neck warmer perfectly! :)

    I really love the stuff in your shop! Your collars/chokers are fab. I wish I could pull that off, shoot.

  7. Love this. I'm with you on the modeling thing. I model all my own stuff as well. (I'm a former model anyway.) It's faster, saves me money, and I don't have to deal with model releases and all that jive. :)
