Are your eyelids as oily as Jermaine Jackson? If you find your eyeshadow just doesn’t stay on your oily lids, you might wanna try a paint pot by MAC ($16.50). Not only do they apply smoothly and dry quickly, but they can make your eyeshadows so much more vibrant. I prefer them over other types of eye primers, but it’s up to you. I still love my UDPP and Too Faced Shadow Insurance, but I reach for my paint pots a lot more. Some of the shades are so pretty you could wear them alone (like Indianwood and Rubenesque), and some really enhance any duochrome shadow you might be wearing. Artifact paint pot looks amazing with Beauty Marked eyeshadow, and Pink Pearl pigment over Delft?? Gorgeous. There are so many things you can do with paint pots, it’s not even funny. I don’t have every single one, but I have a pretty good variety to start with (and will quietly hunt for the ones I don’t have and need). Check out these swatches so you know what they look like on darker skin.

Happy Sunday! The weather is absolutely gorgeous today. Not a breath of humidity, the birds are chirping, the sun is shining. It doesn’t smell like raw booty outside either. I love this kinda weather! I feel like I’m in LA or something, its just perfect. Oh, and Starz was showing Hook — one of my all-time favorite movies ever, earlier when I got the wild hair up my butt to do this look. This is one of my favorite looks to do because it’s fresh, easy and quick. It opens up the eyes beautifully and the sexy pop of green really takes it from neutral-schmuetral to something very special. You don’t have to wear typical bright shades the entire summer, so don’t feel like you’re obligated to. In fact, bronzey/golden hues are incredibly gorgeous in the summer, especially with a touch of color added. See for yourself ;)

I know you’re thinking “Damn, another NYX post?!”, but I promise you guys I’m not working for NYX. I just happen to have a decent amount of their products and I love just about all of what I own. I was rummaging thru my stash this morning, looking for a red lipstick other than my trusty MAC So Scarlet (LE). I wanted to show another color from another brand some love today, and then I remembered two shades by NYX that I couldn’t go wrong with. I swear finding things you haven’t used in a while and rediscovering why you love them is such a fabulous feeling. Do you guys realize it’s 2010 and there are still women out there who haven’t attempted a sexy red lip?? Mainly because they’re terrified at the very thought of rocking a bright, bold red lip. Are you one of them?

Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful mothers out there! Especially to my own mom, who is probably the silliest woman I know…and where I get my everything from. She taught me how to cook, how to live and how to love. A phenomenal 52 year old powerhouse who acts 25 and appreciates the present moment while living each day is if it were her last. I couldn’t ask for a better mom. I know she’s probably reading this, so I love you mom! Hope you cook soon…I’m hungry! So now that all of that mushy stuff is out of the way, it’s Pink on Brown time! Cue the cheesy 70′s style game show music :|

If there was one lip product in my entire collection that I could take out to dinner, it’d be my NYX Mega Shine lip glosses ($5.50). These babies hold a very special place in my heart. They are beyond “holy grail” material for me, I seriously cannot live without these…it’s that serious. Reason being is that they’re super inexpensive, feel awesome on my lips, and look amazing. I’m all about stretching my dollar like spandex on the biggest booty in the world, so these are definitely a win-win.

I can’t even begin to tell you how far drugstore foundations have come over the years. I remember back in high school, every girl who wore foundation had a ring around her shirt collar. It was a dead, orangey giveaway that was never flattering. I always saw it after gym class, when she’d be all sweaty and crap. Her makeup would melt off and party on her shirt collar -ugh. I never wanted to have that symbolic orangey brown makeup collar so I avoided foundations altogether. I just felt they’d look cakey and unnatural, so I was like “Screw it!”.
