Hi Guys and Dolls! I sat down this week to film a tutorial for the makeup I was wearing in my MAC Me Over haul and about halfway though it just felt so lack luster- it’s a beautiful makeup, but my heart wasn’t in it. When I rediscovered my LIT glitter stacker I decided to have a little makeup playing party for one! I also realized I’d never used my Sleek Acid palette that I’ve had for well over a year!  I hope you love this look as much as I do (pink + purple= LOVE!).

Also me have my friend John to thank for the name.

PS- Vampyvarnish tweeted about loving the “TV” setting on her camera, so I decided to try it when I took these pictures and I think they came out great! Thank you Kelly for begin you and tweeting about camera settings! These were taken without flash and so I think they look more true to life.

    Sometimes makeup playing parties for one are the best kind! Cool look. It really makes your eyes and skin tone pop.

    Love it! Any chance of you doing video with a bright blue or a silver holographic glitter? I don’t have a clue with the holo because by itself it washes me out. I want it to blend with something, not sure what.
