Poetry Palette 

A play on makeup and poetry, I created 6 personal interpretations on the universal emotions for everyday wear and tear.

1. Sadness: I really miss the days when I knew what I was doing.
2. Fear: The loneliness has left me wild.
3. Pain: How long can I last when the gloves are off and I’m taking all the punches?
4. Disgust: Guess I’m alot like wisdom teeth; Stupid enough to stay where I’m not wanted, smart enough to not go out without a fight.
5. Contempt: This Damn City keeps breaking my heart.
6. Joy: You’re worth more to me.

Regal Eyeliner

I love this eye makeup that I filmed today. The Gold glitter eyeliner is quite regal looking, like a sparkling tiara! Simply beautiful.

This eye makeup is often requested by Asian brides; some glitter and a smoky eye with a hint of colour!

As you know, I have Brown eyes naturally, so yes, I am wearing contact lenses here. They are by Desio Eyes in the shade Creamy Beige.

This tutorial will be up on my channel soon…



Sometimes a girl’s just gotta play.

I used

  1. navy blue sparkly cream shadow; try Dior Cosmos
  2. a little black pencil along the lashes and extended into a low flick
  3. multi-chromatic eye by blending two duochrome pigments (one blue one violet) over a navy cream shadow in a 1920′s style smoky eye shape; Inglot AMC pigments in 113 and 112
  4. packing on two shades of glitter (one violet near the eye, fading to transparent rainbow further down); Coastal Scents Razzle Dazzle and Ballerina Dream, over my favorite Lit Cosmetics glitter base
  5. dramatic wispy lashes; Red Cherry #16

To link the eyes to the cheeks, I also did an “ombre cheek highlight” from the outer corners of my eyes down to my cheeks. It goes from a chartreuse green to gold to pink. Just look for those transparent white pigments or shadows that have a duochrome shift.

Black Light Dragon (with tutorial:

This was such a fun look to make! The scales are made out of gelatin and then covered with body paints. I show you how to make them in the tutorial above.
Sad note, my new camera doesn’t like black lights and I had to use my phone as a light so it could find my face. On the plus side it created a cool photo!

My twist on the generic winged liner, to amp it up and add some glitz! 

All products used have been listed in the description bar of the video on my channel, with clickable links to the direct sites you can purchase them - the glitter is a MUST HAVE!!

I always preferred chocolates over pastels when it comes to Easter colors.

And you know I can’t rave enough about @litcosmetics glitter bases. Not having to pack glitter on separately from the adhesive (and dealing with patchy coverage and mess) has completely changed my glitter game.

I did not have to apply a dark brown lipstick or liner under the glitter to hide gaps. The base helps the sparkle go on opaque and everything sets transfer-proof.

To recreate this look, try any one of Lit’s glitter bases from or, and Lit Cosmetics Hoochie Mama size 3 glitter (more dramatic) or Eye Kandy Chocolate Chip (finer and less red-toned).

Peridot x Emerald Glitter Lids - Urban Decay Vice 4 and Make Up Geek Sparklers

A fun, quick look using lotsa rich green shadows and 2 green glitters. Vice 4 may no longer be available for sale where you are but you can use any green shadows you want. I blended about 3 different shades together for the green in the center of my lid but it’s only really there as a base for the glitter. Use any cool deep green you can find.

As for the MUG Sparklers, I quite enjoy the things but I loathe the packaging. But I got mine some time back and I did hear they were working on better packaging so hopefully that’s sorted out now.

Mixing medium: Lit Cosmetics Clearly Liquid Glitter Base

Eyeliner: MAC Shade

Greek Gods - Aphrodite

With Valentines Day just around the corner, I thought it was fitting to do Aphrodite. I took elements from the history I read about her and also added a little modern twist. The eyes are made to look like the sea. Tales say she arose from the sea foam. One of her symbols is a scallop, so I added that onto the eye as well. For the modern twist I added soft pink around the face with little hearts and pearls.
