glow magazine: way to go!

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

Pores. When was the last time you saw those in a beauty editorial? And a touch of peach fuzz-y hair, on a model’s arm!

This was the shiny, glossy delight of the month for me. (Well okay, of last month.) I’m proud you’re Canadian, glow!

P.S. Was I the only one who immediately recognized NARS Schiap on the cover model’s lips and nails? ;)

EOTD: Dramatic, defined, and… quadruple winged?

Monday, July 26, 2010

Quadruple. That’s right, I said it. Why, you ask? Because I have a dark navy blue, a violet, a white, AND a shimmery blue wing.

We are just that bored hardcore.

 Just a note on the photos; this was another look done (stupidly) as the sun was setting. So, as you leaf through the photos you will notice a large variety of lighting conditions, from natural light with crazy camera settings, to flash, to plain ‘ol tungsten lighting. 

Anyhow, I really liked this look, and I hope you do too!

To see more photos and find out what I used, read on!

NOTE: I seem to have lost my product list somehow, so these are mainly guesses! I’m pretty set in my ways, though, so anything without an “or” is for sure!

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk (white)
Annabelle Vivid Violet (violet)
Senna Blue Note or possibly another Annabelle pigment? (Shimmering navy)
MAC Naked pigment or a Lancome shadow — maybe, like, Honeymoon? (Inner corner)

L’Oreal Beauty Tubes mascara
MAC Blanc Type eyeshadow
Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Dupe it with:

YOU: How do you feel about ShopStyle?

Sunday, July 25, 2010

I’ve always had a bit of an affinity for those cute little ShopStyle boxes, and just recently I figured out how to use them. (I know, I know — I’m a technological dinosaur!)

Anyhow, how do you feel about them? Yes, they’re advertising, but no, I likely wouldn’t make any money off of them. They’re designed for larger businesses and require a minimum traffic of like, a bazillion clicks a month in order to generate any profit, so for us, they’d just be cute boxes with cute products!

Let me know in the comments! Here are some examples of what you’d see…

At the bottom of a post like this one:

Dupe this look with…

Don’t worry, we’d still list the actual products used! We’ll try to include as many of those in the image as possible, but will put in other options as well. (Not everything’s on ShopStyle.) In this one, for example, we used TFSI, a 217, and Blanc Type, but thought the Dior palette in particular would be an awesome product to use for the look.

Or, in a post like this one:

…keep an eye out in your Sephora!

Urban Decay at ShopStyle

(We’d use the ShopStyle instead of the image-then-link that we use right now. Why? Well for starters, it’s easier — we won’t have to track down the image, save it, upload it, AND link it. And secondly, it’ll save a ton of space on our hard drive!!

Just something to think about! It would make our lives a lot easier, and while it would also be awesome if you ladies used the links as much as possible (because we might actually be able to afford our own domain at that point!) more than anything else I just really want to use the cute little widgets ^^
