This first picture looks weird/cool and edited, although it's not!  I particularly enjoy the reflection of the sky, clouds, and whatnot in the sliding glass door behind me.

This was somewhat of an accidental combination of eye colors for me.  I like how it turned out.  I really love the formula on the Rouge Bunny Rouge cream shadows - some of the best I've ever tried.  Also, I adore my Too Faced The Return of Sexy palette.  Well played, Self, well played!

Let me sing praises for Hourglass Siren lip gloss.  It's metallic - way more so than my pictures show.  It wears a very long time.  It's not drying.  It pairs beautifully with any number of orangey to red to pinky shades of lipstick.  AND IT'S STUNNING!

    1. The same reason that YOU ARE!!! <3

  2. Your skin is unbelievably beautiful. Totally agree with you about Siren. There aren't too many things that are 100% unique in my collection- as in I don't even have something that looks more or less similar- but that's one.

    1. Thank you!! I think it's the Givenchy foundation combined with lucky good lighting! Yes, Siren is so, so great! Every red lover needs it! I want a purple and bright pink gloss in the same finish and formula. That would be awesome.

  3. Just stunning Lauren. Really beautiful!

  4. Love Siren! Pretty eye look- it's very flattering on you.


Please be kind. I'm happy to learn and grow, but it's also my face we're talking about! Also, no shamelessly promoting your blog or site here, please. Thank you!
