Golden Pink Glitter look using MAC

The mineral makeup Gods will be displeased! I don't think I have ever done an all MAC eyeshadow look. I do have several MAC samples, but I rarely use them because I prefer mineral makeup. So I figured I'd go ahead and use them today.
next two are with flash

HELP PLEASE! I'm planning on doing a blog give away/contest type thing soon, to show my appreciation to all of you. I've never done one before and I have never participated in one, so I don't really know what I'm doing. If you have any suggestions or recommendations, please feel free to let me know. I already know what I would like to give away (trust me it's good stuff!), I just need to know how to go about doing it. :-)

Hope you all are having a beautiful weekend.



  1. Love the look - kind of kabuki colours!

    For your give away... why not tell people to create a look to enter? Then you're encouraging creativeness. Or get people to tell you what they want to see more of on your blog :)

  2. you are really great with mixing colors! :)

    the kissters

  3. Here's how I did mine, and I think everyone has there own unique way too. I came up with a theme...and considering my blog title has pink in it...libbys pink vanity, I focused on Pink. I found some inexpensive makeup items; a pink Remmel lip liner, a mini pink polish from Forever 21. I found the cutest pink makeup bag that was pink. And to make it over the top sweet, I put in the Sally Hensen's Hidden Treasure. There were tons of other cool things like some tea, shadow, lip stick, and some other secret goodies. I won't mention them because my winner, Megan, might see this and she won't be getting the package til Thur.

    Do you have any doubles of things that you can send one in a giveaway? I don't think anyone would be put off if you re-gifted something that hadn't been used. Hopefully, other blogger friends will jump in and give you better ideas than these. I'm still learning too.

  4. Gorgeous look, and gorgeous combo ;)

  5. I like this look, it's angelic ;)

    Umm, if you're trying to build followers for the contest then make sure you have your followers post it on their page somehow. If you're doing a contest for fun, then have your followers do some fun makeup and you can pick a winner from your fav. I'd totally participate!


  6. DAMN that lid color is bright! I'm getting blinded over here... maybe it's just your great beauty ;]

    I'm going to do one before I move, and I think maybe it should depend on your prizes? If it is a LOT of stuff, you should make people work for it and have them do some kind of themed look! If it's not ginormo, something simpler and fun... I don't know what though :P

  7. love it... the pink looks so cute ^ ^

  8. omGGG!! I have kitschmas too! I've made like a million giveaways LOL. You just have to take a picture of your prizes, make a post and set a date when you want the giveaway to end. You can also say some rules such as "you gotta be a follower" or "you have to comment below with your email addy"

    I look forawrd to it!

  9. God this is just stunning! I love the glowy off-white blending gently into the pink. You have stunning eyes.

  10. I like this soft look on you, your eyes look gorgeous :-)

  11. Wow, super look there. My favorite is the white line on your inner lower lashline. You are gorgeous!

  12. Teeeheee, I've offended the makeup gods recently too with mac and urban decay. Just for that they will combust on me I just know it!

    This is a really pretty look! I'm going to have to try my jumbo pencils on the waterline. I've never even thought of that because of their size.

    And I has no idea about giveaways. I just know peeps always say "mention your name and email addy in dotcom words to contact you" but everyone has different ways of making it a competition.

  13. Shame on you, the mineral makeup gods are extremely disappointed... ^^
    It's perfect, as usual, with or without mineral makeup. Lots of people don't know how to use Kitchmas, i like it a lot in your makeup!

  14. & I just remembered while I was offline, I LOVE that necklace! I knew there was something I forgot to mention.

  15. I really love the lid shade you used!
