I'm not wearing any other makeup on my face, so all the focus should go to the eyes. I started with a white eyeliner (by Bourjois) and set that with a white eye shadow (from the Eye Shadow Duo Twilight by Smashbox), and then used a cream black eyeliner (by Clinique) with a very, very thin brush (by Sephora) to line really only the base of the lashes. I then used a black waterproof eyeliner (by Urban Decay) on my top waterline (try not to blink until it's dry), and then I used a black mascara (by YSL) on my top lashes only.
I was still in a Formula 1 mood today and I was thinking about the "Red Bull gives you wings" slogan, so I did a blue-winged eyeliner look. . . I started with my brows. Normally I do nothing to them, but with a very defined eye, I thought a defined brow would look amazing. I used my Tweezerman tweezers to pluck any stray hairs and then used Cork and Models Own Angled Eyeliner Brush to add a little color to them. I then used MAC Soft Ochre as a base and some Brule to set it. With a MAC 266 Angled Liner Brush, I took some MAC Fluidline in Waveline and first made the outer corners.

Hi everyone, I have a huge cold and to hide my red nose, I did these eyes today. They're still perfect for school or work even though they are fairly bright, but they're also very, very easy. I used Laura Mercier Foundation Primer ($30), followed by a mixture of Make Up For Ever HD Foundation in 140 Soft Beige ($40) and Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer ($42). I used Laura Mercier Undercover Pot ($34) in no. 3, which contains the Secret Camouflage and Secret Concealer as concealers, and the Translucent Loose Setting Powder ($20) to set everything.
On my eyes, I used Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion ($18). I used 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Graffiti, which I bought in the 24/7 Super Stash ($36). To set the liner, I used Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Graffiti ($18). I set it even though it's a waterproof liner because it's snowing outside and I'm sneezing and have a cold, so I needed some extra security. This also adds to the depth of the color. After this, I used my Bare Escentuals Buxom Lashes mascara and I was done.
Almost everything about Urban Decay's Pocket Rocket in "Kirk" is perfect. The creamy sheer nude color is the best I've found to date. The package is cute and slim (great to keep in your pocket) and the gloss left my lips moisturized even after I removed my makeup. I loved it so much much I asked my fiance to buy me 2 more soon. So what's the problem? Keep reading
It's still a few months before Tim Burton's gorgeous, undoubtedly creepy re-envisioning of Alice in Wonderland premieres, and rarely have I been so excited to see makeup and costuming. To accompany the film, both Urban Decay and OPI have come out with collections that mimic the palettes used in the movie. The colors are cool, and the packaging is out of this world. So to see the Alice collections for yourself and get a little analysis of the characters' makeup, just click through.

Urban Decay's Eyeshadow ($16) has long been a favorite of makeup junkies, but lately the company has expanded its collection even further to include new textures and colors. Reader gooz1231 tried out the newest palette, and says:
"The brighter colors have great pigmentation and they go on lovely and smoothly. Some of the colors, like Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, tend to have chunky glitter, so I would avoid those—but the rest are really nice. They are a little bit more expensive than MAC eye shadows, but I would still recommend them anyway."
I actually love Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, specifically because the glitter is so bold, but that's why it's important to get more than one opinion, and her point is well-taken.

When I was little, I was absolutely obsessed with those cheapy clear plastic rings full of glittery, gooey lip gloss in what I now realize were totally gross artificial flavors. As my ability to judge product quality has improved, though, my nostalgia for those little rings hasn't left me. Feeling sentimental the other day, I Googled "lip gloss rings," only to find that there are, in fact, a whole bunch of high-end, very pretty versions that are totally appropriate for grown-up ladies. Click through here to put a ring on it.
I couldn't help myself. I just bought Doug. It looks like a bright pink shimmery shade . . . and is actually quite sheer with a hint of color. They have a type of guy for everyone, though. It's supposed to smell like crème brûlée. Mine kind of smells like cookies to me, but it's still good. The gloss itself is sheer and a little on the thicker side but smooth. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was because I wish they made the colors separately and let you choose your top to mix and match.
Have you tried some new products on the market as of late? Tell us all about them on the Product Reviews pages. Oh, and don't forget that Urban Decay's put your guy on a Pocket Rocket contest ends Friday, if you want in on a little of the action.
If you recall, Urban Decay recently launched its Pocket Rocket lip glosses ($19 each), which feature hunky men that are clothed, and then not-so-clothed, with a tip of the, uh, packaging. The majority of you were loving the idea, and now, in celebration of next year's launch of two new shades, Urban Decay is asking you to help choose two new guys to feature in the collection.
You can nominate your boyfriend, husband, brother, or anyone you deem appropriate from now until July 17 by heading to the contest website. Don't have anyone to suggest? No worries. The winners will be chosen based on votes, and there are plenty handsome fellows from which to choose. Bonus? If the guy you nominate wins, you're off to the photo shoot in southern California, too.
