2 Aug

I have gotten a TON of questions regarding mark. products since I started sell them, so here are a couple of videos to answer some of those questions!
Are you wondering what the mark. eyeshadows really look like on your skin? It’s hard to tell online or in the magalogs.

These are my opinions on the mark. products based on my use. Hope this helps!

30 Days of Shades: Day 26–Katy Perry Purr

4 May
I bought Katy Perry’s new perfume, Purr, and I LOVE it!

Katy Perry Purr



I know this isn’t the traditional eyeshadow, but every now and then, it’s fun to do something different! I was inspired by Katy Perry’s Purr perfume ad. 🙂
To see how I created this eyeshadow look, scroll down and watch the video!

Here is the description of the perfume:
The composition of Katy Perry Purr combines top notes of peach, forbidden apple, gardenia and green bamboo with the heart of jasmine, pink freesia and Bulgarian rose and the base of vanilla orchid, creamy sandalwood, white amber, coconut and musk.

It’s hard to tell in this pic, but I have on some false eyelashes with sequins on the lashes. You can tell in the video. Very fun! 🙂





I know it’s a bit lengthy, but this isn’t something that can be done too quickly! Makeup is ART! 🙂
Thanks for watching!

30 Days of Shades: Day 17 Laura Geller

27 Feb

Here is a quick look using the Laura Geller Sunset Horizon palette. I used the lightest shade on my lid and brow bone and the darkest shade subtly in my crease. I lined my lower lashes with the gold color.


Check out this blush. It is the Laura Geller Blush-N-Brighten Tropic Hues blush. I L.O.V.E. it. Now I am not usually partial to one blush or the other. I can take it or leave it. My love of make-up revolves around eyeshadow for the most part. HOWEVER, I have never had a prettier blush! I have worn this almost everyday since I got it off of QVC. I seriously cannot stop putting it on. So if my cheeks look over blushed, well you will know why! I am addicted to applying this shade!

It is a shimmery shade with hints of gold, peach, and pink. By far, my all time favorite. 🙂

Good News—The weather is WAY better and I have gotten to go back to my studio to work on a few little sewing projects! YAY! Now, I can find a way to burn my creative energy other than just using my eyelids for a palette!

I am going to continue my 30 days of Shades though, don’t worry! I have had so much fun with my makeup posts that you are going to see a lot more of them. However, I hope to have more crafts and recipes mixed in.
Creativity is what keeps me sane. 🙂 Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend! –Amber

Check out some new pigments that I found online! I am so excited about these..and they are only $1.00 each!!

Here are the shades that I bought. I wanted to swatch them so you could see what they really look like on the skin.

Chocolate blueberries, Tiger’s Eye, Heather mist, Iris, Twinkle, Promiscuous, Immortal, Froufrou, Romance, Chocolate Grapes, Chocolate Oranges, Khaki.

(It’s hard to see the Tiger’s eye shade, because it is the exact same color as my skin, only shimmery.)
Pure Luxe Cosmetics is the website you can get them from. (Click the link.) They also have larger sizes with sifters if you are wanting that. Have fun shopping!

Laura Geller Escape to the Tropics

16 Feb
Since I have been insanely busy, I haven’t been able to post on my 30 days of Shades in a couple of days. It’s a good thing I didn’t say 30 CONSECUTIVE days of shades! 🙂
I made this video a couple of days ago. I figured that I would post it and show you guys some of the new products that I am trying out!

Here are swatches of the pigments and eyeshadows from the video:

M.A.C. Reflects blackened red (over a dark base), M.A.C. Push the Edge, M.A.C. Vintage Gold.
The last four are from the Baked Eye Dreams/Sunset Horizon from Laura Geller.

Maybe I will get back on track with my posts soon. I have more videos planned, cause I have more stuff to show you guys! 🙂

Hope everybody has had a good week!
