About Me

My photo
I'm a girl who is interested in the usual things... makeup, hair, skincare, boys, tanning (no sun! obviously (: ) and the not so usual... geography ( I can be handed a blank map of Europe and name every country... yes, even Czechoslovakia ), spelling, drawing, swimming, philosophy, Greek mythology, history, and traveling. I decided to get this blog to kill time and I hope it's fun. Let's cross our fingers!

Look Of The Day: Bright Spring Eyes

Today I woke up and just felt like doing something bright with my makeup today. I'm sure you know that us girls sometimes wake up and just start going through our beauty routine like machines. I usually end up doing a light, shimmery neutral eye. Today I wanted a change. The look I did today was a bright seafoam blue/green with medium thickness black liner and wispy lashes. I also added a bit more of a something with a blue/green/gold glitter right along the lower lid. To say it was pretty was an understatement. Enjoy!

Illamasqua Toxic Nature Collection

Have you seen Illamasqua's Spring 2011 makeup collection? It looks gorgeous! I don't know about you, but I have always thought that unique beauty is better than ordinary beauty. I adore Illamasqua because they go along with that idea. Their artwork never fails to give me something to absolutely marvel at. When I saw this collection I was amazed. Their saying for this collection is that things were 'Distorted by Mankind, and now the Natural World is Fighting Back'. Pictures are worth 1,000 words right? So enjoy...
