Everyday Chic

I want this outfit.

I wanted to create a combination of casual and chic and I think I achieved that!
This is totally wearable. Or, something I would wear - at least!
I know some of the pieces are ridiculously expensive, but hey, there are always ways to "get the look for less" and it's usually pretty easy to find cheap(er) substitutions. Because let's face it, not too many sane people (rich or not) are insane enough to spend almost $2000 on a handbag. Even one that happens to be as fabulous as the one above.

MAC Haul & January Favourites!

Hello beautiful people!

I got a package from MAC a couple days ago! In that package were a bunch of great little treats.

My haul consisted of:
-Brush cleanser
-e/s in Electric Eel, Deep Truth, Print, Mylar, Soft Brown, Texture, and Espresso.
-Blushers in Well Dressed, Pinch 'O' Peach, Pink Swoon, and Dollymix.
-Paintpot in Painterly
-Blacktrack Fluidline
-Lipstick in Viva Glam II (pretty AND proceeds go to a great cause)
-MSF in Soft and Gentle
-MAC wipes
-3 brushes: MAC 109, 195, 231

I am pleased with my purchases so far! Nothing beats getting awesome packages in the mail. The anticipation alone is worth it!

And these are some of my favourite products of January:

O.P.I. n/p in Puerto Vallarta Violeta
Essie n/p in Sole Mate
O.P.I. n/p in Dusk over Cairo
NARS duo e/s in Earth Angel
NARS duo e/s in Paris
NARS duo e/s in Eurydice (anyone know how to pronounce this?)
NARS single e/s in Mekong
Benefit velvet eyeshadow in Buckle Bunny
Stila kajal eye liner in Onyx and Topaz
Stila smudgepot in Black

So yes, basically, a LOT of eye products! But, I hope you like the way I arranged them for the picture. Not contrived at all. haha ;)

I have a new video up that goes into more detail about all these things, and has me looking like a bit of a d-bag when I can't pronounce anything. But in any case, you can view it here.

Have a great night/day!

Feminine Motorcyclist

I think I have made it pretty clear already that I have a love for trying out new makeup products. What you may not know about me is that I also love fashion. I had a lot of fun creating the look above. Coming up with an entire look from scratch (makeup included) makes me happy - the possibilities are endless! So, I fully expect to show these little outfit creations on a regular basis via this blog!

I've always loved rocker-chic meets feminine-delicacy. That's what inspired the look above. I think there's a perfect balance of harsh and sweet. The makeup is huge here, especially the lipstick. I wanted a pop of colour and that lip colour certainly pops! Also, I thought about leaving out the falsies as I really wanted to include the glasses, but then I thought: "hey, people who wear glasses get to have pretty lashes too!"
