What a Bright Idea

So since some of my lovely readers are courageous enough to experiment with bright colors for my contest, I did a look as well.

Today is the last day to submit entries. I will wake up tomorrow and post the rules for voting as well as all the entries. As always, a new contest will be up on July 1.

Now – as I always say – I love bright colors. As soon as warm weather creeps into the forecast, all colorful wonders break loose.


a look to wear during the day 🙂 a small mea culpa for crappy lighting

Then I wanted something really bright for my own contest. I got the perfect lightbulb over my head when I saw this nail polish display at Ricky’s for Mattese. Doesn’t it look like here’s a polish missing from the side?

Anyway! The look is lemon lime green and nothing in between!


Me and my crazy curly self.

I decided to let the debris and fall away in this makeup look stay b/c I thought it looked super duper fancy. lol! In the pics it looks messy – but really… who cares? I have fun when I want to, b/c I’ll Be My Own Judge!!!

Naturally that wasn’t the end of it. Remember when Mehron did leopard print eyes at the NYC Makeup Show? Well I tried that too.

Last but not least, here’s what I used:


40 color palette
Maybelline Last Blast Mascara in Black
MUFE Lipstick in 406
MAC Select Cover-Up in NW20

MAC Bronzing Powder in Solar Riche

(I used these for both looks btw – except no lipstick in the first look) also – for the leopard print eyes, I just used a nameless liquid eyeliner in black… nothing spiffy

You still have time to submit your entry!

  4. I love your leopard print eyes. The spots look so perfect. I didn't realize you did leopard print eyes cause I kinda did the same for your bright makeup contest! I don't have spots all over the eye though.. just on the corners cause I didn't know where to start & finish & if I should take it all the way up to the brow bone, lol. I e-mailed you with the link to my contest.. it's on my blog 🙂
