MOTD: Graphic Lines and Double Wings!

I had a lot of fun creating this look - and everybody thought that it was way harder than it actually was. All I did was carve out my crease with a brown shadow, cleaned up the outer part with makeup remover and a white eyeliner, and then did the usual wing with Inglot black gel liner. It was so simple, and I was getting compliments nonstop.

Try it out - you will feel like a professional.

MOTD- Hippie Theme at the Counter

We are trying to do more theme days at my counter, because not only do they challenge our creativity as artists, but bring everyone together and really get the customers interested in what we are doing.

This was Hippie Theme, and I had so much fun with it. I chose a really defined cut crease with a double wing, and put warm colors on my top lid and cool colors on my bottom. I would wear this everyday!

New Eyes on MAC Collection!

Hi friends! ;
Sorry I have been so MIA on here.. I promise to be better :)
Beginning with this:

The New Eyes on MAC Collection! 

We are selling soooo quickly... if you are interested at all, come down. I believe that the MAc stores, the counters at Nordstrom, and the counters at Macy's are all selling these things, except for the Nordstroms exclusive palette.

There are 7 pieces in the collection: 4 9x shadow palettes, and 3 15x shadow palettes. There are a wide variety of colors to choose from. In the pictures below, I am wearing every single shadow from the burgundy x9 palette.. a little excessive, but I just had to play with it.

Here are the pros:
Every shadow is of the same quality that we sell. I have heard rumors that our paletted shadows are of a lesser quality, and that is absolutely not true!
The little palettes are only $40... which is insane.
The larger palettes are only $85.... which is just absurd! Each shadow sells for $16, so if you were to buy them all, they would be (15)(16) = $240!!! I myself bought the Nordstroms exclusive palette.

Which one to buy?
The smaller palettes are for two types of people: You don't wear much makeup, but want to have something for the off chance that you go out and wear it, or if you have a lot of makeup, and don't want to spend too much money.
I would recommend the larger palettes, which are a better value, for those of you who are either in love with makeup and want to continue on an existing collection, or need a great variety of colors to play around with.

There are three large palettes: Cool toned, Warm toned, and the Nordstrom's Exclusive.

The Nordstrom Exclusive is here:

Shades are:
This is good for EVERYONE. This palette has all the top shadows that we sell everyday at Nordstrom's MAC counters. I am in love with this. This is perfect for a girl who doesn't have a lot of makeup, for someone who wants to build a kit, or for someone who just wants to add to their collection of already amazing shadows. I recommend this palette, and this is what I sell more than anything else in the collection.

The Cool palette is here:

Shades are:
This is good for cooler toned skins with pink or neutral undertones who like silvers and greys.

The Warm palette is here:

Shades are:
This is wonderful for more olive, warm toned skins who love golds and bronzes.

In these pictures, I am wearing every shade from the Burgundy Palette somewhere on my eyes! (Which is bottom left in the picture!)
