Back by popular demand, here's a little step-by-step makeup tutorial. This is a very simple morning routine that is fairly natural-looking for everyday wear. It only takes about two minutes to apply everything, so it's great if you're in a rush out the door.
If you're feeling a little more wacky, here are some ideas using makeup from Sweet Pea and Fay. They sent me lots of shadows and lip glosses for product review, and let me tell you: everything is AMAZING. Emily, who you can see in the pictures with the green and orange shadow, went and ordered some herself.
This is all really high-quality stuff, and costs next to nothing. I highly recommend it; I use it almost every day.
The best thing about this is that you can use the eyeshadows like liquid liner, too — I do it pretty much every day. Just wet a very thin makeup brush and dip it into a small amount of shadow, then apply like you would liquid liner. Look at the picture with the turquoise spikes — that's eyeshadow.
using Super Duper (personal fave)
using Crystal Meth (it's the color guys, I'm not really on drugs, i promise)

PS: the lemon cupcakes I told you about? Em took pictures while we were making the cake and cupcakes and posted the recipe here. They. Are. Delicious.
