Sugar Plum

Hey, Everyone!

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season! It has been so busy for me that I haven't had much time to blog. Hopefully it will calm down here in a bit and I will be more visible- not just here, but I look forward to visiting my other favorite bloggers as well.

For this week's look, I have been dying to play with the Sleek Vintage Romance Palette. It is a perfect blend of sultry plums, royal blues, and shimmering golds.  It is indeed a very "romantic" collection of colors.

I created a flirty plum look using the palette and a few other goodies.  It is my idea of a lovely "date night" look that doesn't scream "MY FACE IS PAINTED" (LOL!), and I hope you like it!

 The Eyes:

♥ Marilyn Miglin Eyeshadow in Modelite from Brow to crease.
This is a matte vanilla tone.
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Yogurt to lid and lower lash line.
♥ Shade 1(rich plum) to lid and lower lash line.
♥ Shade 2 (shimmering black) to outer V, crease, and edge of lower lash line.
♥ Shade 3 (brandy color) to crease, blended softly up and out towards brow to transition
the colors softly.
♥ A touch of Nyx Roll on Shimmer in Mauve pink to the lid to add some sparkle :)

♥ Black Eyeliner to lash and water line.
♥ Black Mascara
♥ Red Cherry lashes 107's.  YES! These are my current faves!!

♥ Ulta Blush in Adore

♥ Tarte Lip Stain in Moody
♥ Ulta Super Shiny Gloss in Flirtini

I love how it turned out, and I love playing with these colors this time of year.
Thank you so much for stopping by; I treasure each one of you!

I want to say a very special thank you to YOU, my dear friends for all of your love, support, and kind words lately. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU. Some of you I have never met, but I feel that I've known most of you for years and years and would stop by your home with a casserole and a hug if you ever needed one! (Well maybe not a casserole- I'm not that good in the kitchen. Except cookies! I am awesome at cookies!! I'll bring cookies!)
Seriously, thank you. You mean the world to me. ♥

I wish you the very best holiday season.  Many blessings to you and yours!
