Has this ever happened to you?
It’s winter and raining. You’re doing your best to stay warm and dry, but at the precise moment you walk under an awning outside a stream of ice cold water hits you in the back of the neck and drips under your shirt.
HURRAY! Cold rain, huzzah!
No, girls, I’m not a big fan of winter, and today I was missing the sunshine somethin’ fierce.
I felt cold to my bones and turned, as I often do, to makeup for warmth. I turned to the Smashbox Muse Collection for Spring 2009 hoping that its fresh colors and cheerful packaging would light a fire under my…

To complement the matte peachy coral cheeks and shimmery berry lip, I went with a delicate purple eye following the steps I outlined in the Stila Convertible Eye Color in Violet Tutorial from last September.

I really love the makeup the model in this campaign is wearing. I don’t have the right eye palette to duplicate it, but I think I’ll try to get as close as I can. I’ll let you know how it turns out!
Mario Lopez time!
Are you watching the new season of America’s Best Dance Crew? I LOVE THAT SHOW! I only wish A.C. Slater, aka Mario Lopez, wouldn’t say the words “Master Mix” as often as he does. I guess I’ll just have to bear it!
I hope an all girls crew makes it to the end this time. I’m rooting for Team Fly Khicks… and not just because they have good taste in footwear (although that’s part of it).
