Rocker Girl Chic

One of the inspirations for my style is the rocker look! I love the dark colors and clothing that come with that style and the makeup is no exception! If anything my favorite type of look to create is a smoky eye, especially when its dramatic. This is perfect for clubing or going out. Enjoy!

What I Used
MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation in NW43
MAC Select Moister Cover Concealer in NC45 (under eyes)
MAC Blush in "Razin" (under cheek bones, contour)
NARS Blush in "Taos"
NARS Highlighter in "Albatross" (above cheek bones)
MAYBELLINE Define-A-Brown Pencil in "Medium Brown"

NYX Jumbo Pencil in "Milk" (base for shadow)
URBAN DECAY Eyeshadow in "Grifter" (inner corner)
NYX Eyeshadow in "Cherry" (in the middle)
URBAN DECAY Eyeshadow in "Creep" (outer corner)
MAC Eyeshadow in "Sketch" (crease)
MAC Eyeshadow in "Texture" (transition color)
MAC Eyeshadow in "Ricepaper" (highlight)
MAYBELLINE Line Stilletto Liquid Eyeliner
MAC Eye Kohl in "Smolder" (water line)
URBAN DECAY Eyeshadow in "Creep" (lower lash line)
URBAN DECAY 24/7 Liner in "Flipside" (inner lower lash line)
RED CHERRY #43 Lashes

NYX Lipliner in "Bloom"
MAC Lipstick in "Viva Glam Gaga I"

 Here I used "Razin" to contour my cheek bones, blended it in with "Taos", and tied it all together with "Albatross" to give my face a nice finish.

China Glaze "Refreshmint" Nail Polish

So I'm a huge nail polish fan, somewhat of a collector, so my first post will be about this amazing polish! This is China Glaze's "Refreshmint". It's a light, sea foam, minty green color with a hint of cotton candy, light blue. No sparkles or shimmer. Really creamy and was easy to apply. I've always heard good things about this and I've seen it on others but I always just over looked it and I immediately decided that I didn't think it was "me", but I def. was wrong. This color is perfect for the spring time. I love it and this is officially one of my favs!
