Tonight, I worked for jewelry designer Micha. She wanted her pieces showcased against a ‘neo tribal’ background, with white body paint/tattoos.
So (with the designer’s blessing) I came up with a makeup sketch that looked a little something like this:
Basically, it’s a reverse smoky eye (MAC Eye Pencil in White, Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream/SugarPill pressed shadow in Toki/SugarPill loose shadow in Lumi) … a flesh toned blush (MAC Personal Style)… and an ‘erasing’ lipstick. For this, we used Viva Glam Gaga II, Siss Lipstick (MAC) and a concealer pencil (Make Up For Ever) as a Lip Liner.
The body painting got a little messy, so we took it outside:
The girls were TROOPERS! It was not warm outside… but they stuck it out! Anything to get it right… we were pulling double and triple duty (the lady painting the girls is the DESIGNER), but at the end of the night, it was SO worth it. The girls all looked amazing, and they really showcased the jewelry. It was awesome.
I got home a little earlier tonight… but I’m still pretty tired. Good Night Everyone!
I wanted to use the shadows that I’m gifting in the latest giveaway (no, not THE SAME shadows… I have my own. lol):
I wanted to do a totally nude FACE giveaway, kind of like the FOTD I posted today. So I added a few things. In addition to the Viva Glam Gaga II Lipstick and Lip Glass… I also put together a palette of nude shadows (yes, I put the palette together myself) that I thought would look nice together. And you MUST have false lashes! So I included a pack of MAC falsies in #40.

I broke out my Viva Glam Gaga 2… to go totally nude. Here’s what I ended up with:
MAC Eyeshadow in Studied Brown (brows)
As promised, here are the swatches of the Viva Glam Gaga II Lipstick and Lipglass:
The makeup universe is buzzing over the release of the latest addition to MAC’s Viva Glam series: Gaga II
LOVE this promotional picture… just stunning! And the color is much more wearable this time. Folks were mixing the first Viva Glam Gaga with all manner of browns and nudes… trying to bring that ashy pink down to help it translate in real life application.
100% of the proceeds for Viva Glam go to AIDS Research. I have every Viva Glam prior to this one… so it was a no brainer for me to get this set. I ordered it online… because I’m not interested in braving the frenzy to get it at a local store.
Swatches and a review pending….
