  1. I love all the coppery/bronzy shades you used! Happy New Year! :)

  2. Love this look! Two questions: One, how do you like those false lashes? I've always been intimidated by the idea of false lashes, but I see so many fantastic looks that use them these days that I'm becoming more and more curious but have no idea where to start. Two, your complexion in these photos looks fantastic. What are you using as your makeup/primer for this look?

  3. Great look Colleen! I love your hair by the way :-)


  4. You look incredible, Colleen!! Happy New Year!! <3

  6. As always, I love every single look you create! My makeup goal for 2014 is to master the art of falsies. I used to be able to put them on without even a thought back when I used to gogo dance...but that was ages ago and now every time I try to put on lashes, they just end up getting messy and I end up looking silly. I'm sure any makeup tips you have would be very well received by all of your loyal readers (myself included)!
