Dark Shadows by NYX (Swatched)

Hi Lovelies a week or so back I did a what came in my first Glossy Box but I didn't have a chance to swatch anything for you. Thought that even though my box arrived really late and you may have seen this palette/set swatched many times over I would share it anyways. I tried not to make this post to picture heavy but the Tattoos on my arms keep me limited to hand swatching which limits my space:)

Comes With - 
24 Eye Shadows, 5 Blushes, 1 highlight, 4 Lip Glosses, 1 Eye Shadow Primer & 1 Liquid Liner.

Over all its a great Palette/set and I loved receiving it in my Glossy Box:)

Lincoln Park Meets Rosie Lee After Dark:)

Hi Dolls Tonight I'm sharing another NOTN which I've been doing a lot lately. Hope they don't bore you lovely people but I figure I have to change them a lot due to the fact my nails wont hold onto polish or even fake nails for longer then a day no matter what brands I use (even acrylic & gel nails pop right off). Why not show it:)

Right now Im wearing :
OPI Lincoln Park After Dark 
Butter London Rosie Lee

My Fashion Icons & Inspiration

Hello Lovelies, this morning all of my monkeys are home sick and at the moment watching Alice in my bedroom so I thought I would take a few minutes to tell you who are some of my fashion Icons and where I get inspiration from. You may also learn something new about me. Let me start off with saying I may be too shy to make YouTube videos or get up on a stage but when it comes to fashion I've never been afraid no matter how much I was teased. Since as far back as I can remember I've loved all things vintage and wore everything from 40s dresses to 70s bellbottoms to school. Buying from vintage shops or sewing my own. I watch old movies and day dream about living in that time. I think a big part of it is the history behind it all. I'm a history nut and can't help wondering what life was like when people actually wore the clothing and accessories I love. Ok so that's enough rambling. 
Some who inspire me are Grace Kelly, Rita Hayworth, Jane Russell, Melinda Gordon (Ghost Whisperer ..not actually vintage but I was in love with everything she wore on the show), Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Ava Gardner, Dita Von Teese and so so many others.

If it wasn't for Canadian winters I would wear Dresses (I have an entire closet full ..obsessed much lol) every single day. Who inspires your fashion choices?

How I use Gel Liner (my everyday eye make-up)

Hey Dolls, doing posts like this always makes me wish I was brave enough to make videos. As hard as it is to show how to steps in pictures I tried once again to share my everyday eye make-up routine and how I line my eyes using Gel Liner. I hope it makes sense:) and I apologize for the lighting, its raining out side and the lighting in my place is rubbish.
I swept a light shade across the my lid. Either a Matte cream or Champagne.
I use a light-medium brown through the crease (brush looks really big in this picture lol)
I start lining my eyes with gel liner by starting in the middle in small smooth strokes working to the outer edge of eye . Then I use what ever is left on the brush to line the inner corner of my eyes. Lining as close to the lash line as possible.
Now its time to do my wing. I follow my lower lash line and draw a line out and slightly upward.

Now to fill in my wing (hardest step to show). I fill in my wing by starting where the 2 lines (lash line & wing) meet and using small smooth strokes I fill in the space working from the wing back to the my lid. Doing this step over and over until the wing is filled in and the lines over my lashes is smooth and meets up with my wing.
I wait a minute for my liner to set then curl my lashes and apply 2 coats of mascara .
