Pink, Silver and Teal look using Archetype Cosmetics

So this is another look that didn't turn out quite like I had in mind. The upper lid colour looks completely different when applied. Thought it would look more purple but it just looks silver to me with a bit of purple sheen and sparkle. *shrugs*  My lips turned out weird and I was trying to not look bored/angry but...


Eyes (all applied in this order):
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy (applied to entire eye area and rubbed in gently with ring finger)
Archetype - Lisa's Busted Camero (inner corner, applied with MAC 228 by patting)
Archetype - Savage Garden (middle of upper/lower lid, applied with MAC 239 by patting/sweeping)
Archetype - Obsidian Butterfly (outer V and crease, applied with Coastal Scents pink crease brush by sweeping)
Simply Natural's - Flesh (inner corner and under brow using MAC 217 and blending/softening the edges)
Kryolan Aquacolor eye liner in black (applied wet with MAC 210 extending outward)
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Flipside (waterline)
Hard Candy Ginormous Mascara in Black Out

Lips: My Stuff

Sweet Sensations Body Cafe Peppermint Face Cream (applied with fingertips)
Earth-Glo Minerals powder foundation in Lightest Nude (applied with kabuki brush)

I had mentioned a few days ago that my video tutorials were done. Well, I they are but I don't want to get a YouTube account just to upload these since I don't plan on doing more (I seriously don't have the time to do videos all the time). I have my own web space that I can use to add these on my blog. The videos are short. One is under 3 minutes the other is under 4 minutes. BUT it could take several minutes for them to come up and play for you. I wanted to ask you if you think I should just go ahead and add them now as they are, or change the quality of the video so it doesn't take so long? Lemme know. This is for you so I'd like to know your thoughts. I think you could also download the videos if I add it from my webspace. You wouldn't have to keep coming back to watch them if you needed/wanted to again at another time because you could save them to your computer. :-)


  1. I hate those weird makeup days. But this still looks really pretty. I like the colors. :D

    As for the videos..I'm not sure! I say just upload them as they are now, but I'm a pretty patient person.

  2. That lip color is very pretty! I was disappointed to see you made it, cuz that means I can't buy it :( I don't think I'm going to get into making lip products, too messy.

  3. I think it turned out just fine! The look is stunning, and you have such beautiful eyes! :) Love your look!

  4. Woahhh your lips look cool, and I like the eyes too! I love pale pinks right now.

    I think you should just keep the videso how they are.

    PS, if you want to email me your address, I'll have you sent some stuff straight from Fyrinnae for your bday. :D I don't want to have it sent to me first since their wait time is 3 weeks right now, so you wouldn't get it for like a month.

  5. I like the lid colour :) it's like silvery, but kinda pinky burgundy, but kinda brown too. Love the name of the shadow too XD

    I'd like the videos to show up/load quickly, but I'm not too bothered :) I'm patient when it comes to that ish, haha.

  6. I think adding to your webspace is good: I don't mind waiting, especially not if it's easier for you to do :)

  7. Julissa,
    I agree, thank you. :-) I went ahead and uploaded the videos!

    I'm sorry! Yeah, it is a little messy to make but well worth it to have your own personal lippies!

    Aw, thank you!

    Thank you! Videos are up! I'll email you here shortly. :-)

    Yes, it is pretty, just not what I expected. Videos are up!

    Cool. Videos are up!
