Contest Entry: A-Team
















This was a look I did for xsparkage's contest based on fav childhood tv shows. I chose the A-Team, and did red and black for the cool ass van, with gold for Mr. T's chains. Man, I loved Mr. T. I used MAC and Calypso Minerals for this look.

Scorpions: Deadly Sting: The Mercury Years Inspired Look






















This look was inspired by the cover art on one of the best albums ever compiled: Scorpions Deadly Sting: The Mercury Years. I used UDPP, and Urban Decay Lust smudged all over my lower lid. I used Calypso Minerals rainbow stack purple on my lower lid, and my TC2 orange pigment in my crease and halfway up to my browbone. I used Coastal Scents matte palette bright blue in the corner.

A Little Lavender











For this I used the white purple duochrome in my Hard Candy Techno quad, along with Calypso Minerals Twilight on my lower lid. I then used a combo of Calypso Minerals and my Coastal Scents matte palette for the colors on my upper lid and crease. Black eyeliner and mascara of course.

Tarry Night











This is a look that I would love to do for a show or a hardcore night out, but I had to adapt it a little, as I was going to be wearing it all day. I don't really go to shows or out anymore anyway; I have a two year old! So I'm sure all will be shocked to learn I used a Hard Candy quartet. I used an oldie but goodie, the Techno quad. I used both blacks as well as the silver. I also used a NYX jumbo Black Bean pencil, and started by rubbing that all over my lower lid on top of my UDPP. I then used the smoky grey/black and applied that all over my lid about halfway up to the browbone. Next, I blended the crap out of it, using a color that matches my skin tone on my brow bone, blending into the smoky grey/black. I then used the pitch black color with silver sparkles on my lid and blended. I smudged both colors on my lower lash line, using the silver on my tear duct and inner corner. I used a black eyeliner on top and bottom lash lines and on top and bottom water lines. Finished with black mascara. I loved how this turned out, the pitch black has silver sparkles, which really set off the look, and in my opinion give it a pretty, rather then industrial look. The trick to wearing any makeup is to blend, but especially with dark colors!

Fire Power




This is another attempt at using my Kryolan palette. I used the neon yellow, and then for the orange, I used my TC2 pigment. This was a fun look, it seemed to glow indoors, like little suns on my eyelids.

Disturbed:Down With the Sickness Inspired Look




This look was inspired my another one of my fav bands, which I was lucky enough to see live maybe 7 or 8 times in Phoenix. Oh waah ahh ahh ahh! I used Calypso Minerals and the white green from my Mental Hard Candy quad.
