Hypnotic Shimmer

Hi Guys and Dolls. I did another of the Sephora Holiday Catalog Inspired looks! I hope you guys like this, it doesn’t photograph very well, but it looks SO COOL in person! People go NUTS when I wear this green, but I provided two dupes that are dead ringers for it! Please take the poll at the end of the post to help me decide which videos/blog posts you guys are interested in.

What I used and Some Alternatives:


Laura Mercier(Porcelain)  Tinted Moisturizer Oil-Free

MAC MSFN  (light)

BFTE “Georgia Peach” Blush (cheeks)

Nars “Orgasm” Blush (cheeks)



Sephora “Cocoa Powder” Eyeshadow (any warm medium matte brown, try MAC’s Espresso or Hanwritten, or NYX’s Brown)

Sephora “Picnic in the Park” Eyeshadow (Urban Decay’s Graffiti, and BFTE’s Green Apple are two PERFECT dupes for this.)

MAC “Femme-Fi” Eyeshadow (any light gold shimmery highlight)

Urban Decay “Eldorado” ( you could use Honey, also from UD)

Migi Velvet Liner in Black (Black liquid Liner)

Fiberwig Mascara

Too Faced Starry-eyed Liner in “Obsessed Fan” (any green glitter liner)


Rimmel “Celeb” Lipstick (for a brighter Pink, try NYX’s Black Label Lipstick in “Heather”

Korres Golden Brown Lipgloss (you could use a clear or nude-pink gloss, or skip it)

I’m thinking of moving the majority of my reviews to my blog and then just do a few reviews/monthly fave videos where I show the best. Let me know if you prefer video reviews to tutorials/ if you’re ok with the majority of reviews being on the blog.

Thanks for stopping by my Peanut Gallery! Remember to be Bright, Bold, & Beautiful, Just Be yourself!

    I love ALL of your videos. Some are crazy and some are just good looks for everyday. You truly balance. I love reviews, it helps me know what I should spend my money on. I also loveeeeee watching your make up tutorials. 😀

    I saw this here and you inspired me to try it. A makeup artist at Sephora out of the blue complemented me on it and said I did a good job. I love your work! I have a few palettes with so many colors, but you inspire me to try them all out. Thank you. I love how precise and clean your makeup is.

    Oh, I will support you no matter what, but I actually come to your website when I need an idea for what to wear that day or I am feeling uninspired. It is a great quick reference for looks. Thank you. I truly wish you would keep adding looks to your site as I think several of us do this also. Happy Weekend.
