Tank Girl Look

This look is inspired by Lori Petty in Tank Girl the movie. I love Lori's spunky, fun portrayal of her. It seems like a very light, subtle look but, really brings a WOW factor all it's own. I wore this for the rest of the day & was truly in love with the look as a whole by the end of the night.

Products Used:
ELF 100 Color Eyeshadow Palette (5th from the top on the left + a touch of the color above & top left)
Real Techniques Base Eyeshadow Brush
Red Earth Eyeshadow in MS113 (still on the hunt for the perfect dupe of this shadow)
Too Faced Blending Brush
Real Techniques Pixel-Point  Eyeliner Brush
ELF 100 Color Eyeshadow Palette (5th from the bottom 2nd row from the right)
Love & Beauty Perfect Brow Kit in Blonde (one of the bottom 2 browns 2nd row from the right in the ELF palette would work too)
ELF Small Angled Brush
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Black Dog from The Black Palette
Generic Eyebrow Brush
Physicians Formula 2in1 Eyebooster Liner in Ultra Black
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Mascara in Blue Eyes (black side)
Wet & Wild Kohl Eyeliner in White
Ulta Cheek Color in Heartbreaker (this is my absolute favorite blush for a pretty flushed look, it's so perfect)
Generic Lipliner (any semi-deep reddish color will work because you'll cover it with the lipstick anyway)
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 006 Matte Really Red
Sephora Flat Top Lip Brush

This look really inspired me to do a whole series on Comic Book Babes. Most of them will not be replicas of the makeup that they wear but more so just inspired by them as a whole.
If you have any ideas, please let me know!

Romantic Summer Smoke Eye Look

 Completely uncharacteristic of me, I have been really into summer this year. This look is great if you want to tone down your typicality dark makeup. It is also great for dates or if you find that the typical smokey looks are simply too much for you or if they make your eyes look too small.
It looks great in any variety of colors but, I did it in pink & grey because I had a request for a look using those colors.

Products Used:
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Greed
Studio Tools Crease Brush
ELF 100 Color Eyeshadow Palette (soft grey brown, 4th from the top on right side)
Sephora Eyeshadow Brush
ELF 100 Color Eyeshadow Palette (shimmery pink & white (top 2 on left side)
Essence Fairytale Eyeshadow in Welcome to Wonderland
ELF 100 Color Eyeshadow Palette (medium shimmery pink, 5th from the top 5th row from the left)
Generic Small Eyeshadow Brush
ELF 100 Color Eyeshadow Palette (satin/matte black, 2nd from bottom on right side)
Sephora Flat Liner Brush
Femme Couture Cake Eyeliner in Cobalt
Sephora Eyes Pencil in 505
Maybelline One By One Mascara
Benefit Posie Tint
Real Techniques Stipple Brush
Benefit High Beam
Sephora Nano Lip Liner in Candid Candy
ELF Hypershine Gloss in Blossom

I hope that this help with some of your questions or
 simply gave you a good idea for a new date/summer look.

Venetian Blue & Glitter Look

This awesome look was the idea of one of my fans, Majecal1! Thanks so much for the great idea!
I love how this turned out & think that it can be toned up or down with lipstick, blush, & liner color.

Products Used:
Ulta Professional Potted Eye Primer

Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in Noir
Sephora Flat Smudger Brush
CQ Eyeshadow Single in Champagne
Too Faced Blending Brush
Revlon Perle Eyeshadow in Glistening Snow
Red Earth Eyeshadow in MS113- I got this ages ago (as shown by the amount of pan showing) & am not sure if the company is around anymore. A basic satin light grey works fine though.
Revlon Matte Eyeshadow in Venetian Blue
Generic Fluffy Flat Shader Brush
Urban Deacay Eyeshadow in Black Dog from The Black Palette- any matte black works
ELF Contour Brush
Blue & Silver Glitter
Sally Girl Gel Adhesive for Glitter
Generic Small Flat Shader Brush
