I discovered this wonderful website, Violetgrey.com and I love their humour and this definitely an amazing one liner, had to share it.
First of all though I am in total bliss right now, I have a new New York view and a new place to stay, and just not to expand hours on it (because I could easily…) I just want to share that I am beyond happy!
First and foremost look at that view!
As I shared in my previous post, I wanted to share about beauty and my new expanded make up (due to my amazingly generous cousin of mine) and it’s wonderful powers.
Starting with a few pictures for some inspiration.
Love that photo so much, and I do love that eyeliner look a lot, that something I never quite (well let’s be honest not at all…) mastered, but Nikkie (my amazing cousin, my beauty master!) is going to show me soon.
I had to put Julianne in the mix, she looks phenomenal and is beyond chic. I would be so happy even if I can replicate 1% of her chicness and elegance.
Ok by now you all know my obsession with Lindsey Wixson, I might replicate this eye look soon.. now that Nikkie gave me a thorough eyeshadow lesson (although I still have to remember all the steps…oups!)
So I came with my one make up bag, the pink Mulberry one (ok it was bursting almost not zipping up..) and left with all those extra ones. And a make brush set! with it’s own bag! I tell you AMAZING!!! (I apologise for the many times amazing has been used already and it will be used even more as this post carries on.. Sorry but not sorry!)
