  1. SHIT we haven't talked in forever =/ i really like this look on you.. it's the perfect kind of 'everyday' look, since going all out everyday with ze eye makeup isn't realistic (takes forever, etc). i've been wondering what kind of look to do 'everyday' without being too boring and this is like, exactly what i've been thinking of. i still never really wear false lashes, but i think if that was my main thing, then the makeup wouldn't need to be extravagant. this summer, i'm really feelin' like neon lips and fresh skin is where it's at!! <3

  2. Wow you look absolutely stunning. I need to try Sobe so badly!

  3. LOL i love your crazy faces!

  4. Wow, that is a beautiful red lipstick. And don't do that to your want it to freeze that way?!!! JK!!! ;)

  5. Sheesh girl, you have such beautiful eyes! My eyes are big like yours but I've always been afraid that the pin up style would leave them too "naked" for such big eyes. Seeing you pull it off like this, I just might try it!

  6. I love how the lid shade works :) Hot lipstick, too.

  7. Please stop being so gorgeous. I love this look - the crease is really pretty.

  8. What a beautiful bombshell you are! I love your eyebrows


  10. Beautiful! You have very classic features that verge on being slightly exotic. Seems you can pull off any look just about perfectly. :-)

  11. Aw, thank you sweet ladies! This is a really classy look that can be worn everyday. I personally prefer more vibrant colours though.

    You KNOW you love my twisted faces! :-P
