Hotties! I got to participate in another fun collab with the ladies of Indie Makeup And More and the theme this time was the seven deadly sins. I got Greed, which is totally fitting! Now, when I was originally brainstorming this look I was going to go with all green and gold and maybe draw a money symbol on my face. In other words very literal.
I decided to think outside the box and when I googled greed I remembered that another name for greed is avarice and avarice is the Orange Lantern in the corps. Green Lantern of course is very well known but the orange lanterns with the power of avarice, well that seemed like a cool idea! I decided to go with it….oranges, golds and yellows it is! This look is all about excess, extreme greed…..the preciousssssssssss.
Face: I started with an airbrush base, flesh colored foundation with lots of gold and a little bronze mixed in. Morgana’s Fire Opal powders finished over the whole face. Lots and lots of sparkly powder.
Cheeks: I added a little straight orange to the foundie mix and added to cheeks and topped with Aromaleigh Sunday Girl.
Lips: Morgana Solar Flare packed with MAC’s Marigold glitter.
Eyes: Brazen’s Cheeky foiled on lids and blended under lower lid as well with Brazen’s Buzzed in crease and blended out and also applied underneath eye as well. Meow’s Yellow Snow applied to upper brow bone with Brazen’s Scorching applied under brow and on inner corner of eye. Urban Decay Whiskey liner on upper and lower lids with two coats of black mascara on lashes. Kat Von D Deadhead orange shadow on brows.
I wanted this look to be too much of everything…too much orange, too much sparkle, too much shimmer, too much jewelry. Not a pretty look, but an interesting and slightly gritty look none the less. Greed typically isn’t pretty and I wanted to portray that just a bit but still have it be somewhat ‘glamorous’. I topped this look with a super duper bright orange wig, a champagne sequin sweater, a huge vintage necklace and all the warm colored sparkly bracelets and rings I could find. I hope you like it!
Hello hotties! I had a fun collaboration this week with the ladies on IMAM (Indie Makeup And More) featuring the planets and I chose Mercury. Now Mercury is interesting because if you google pictures of it, you get two very different looks. One is all reds and gold and hot looking and the other is a beautiful azure, gold and white vibe. So I decided to do two looks.
The first was done with Brazen shadows in Cheeky, Immaculate and Tree Hugger and this represents the hot Mercury.
The next FOTD is to represent the other images of Mercury that you see. Here I used Brazen shadow in Music Box and Ice Queen and Geek Chic shadows in Oldest Profession In The Universe, Cosmic Cathouse and Pangalactic Painted Lady. Lippie is Meteor Madame.
Today I bring to you a face of the day using some new shadows from Ten Three Labs. I’ve used Antoinette, Pearl and Seondeok. They were very easy to work with and I can’t wait to try some of the other colors.
Face-Cargo foundation in F-20 over Nyx primer. Finished with a custom powder.
Cheeks-Geek Chic blush in Strawberry Shaortcake.
Lips-Bonne Bell liner in Boysenberry with Ten Three Labs Smudge Stick in All Vamp Everything.
Eyes-Darling Girl base and Glitter Glue under Ten Three Labs Antoinette on lids, Pearl in Crease and blended out with a bit under lower lashes as well, Seondeok on brow bone to blend out Pearl. Just a bit of Hapshepsut under middle of lower lashes. Seondeok on inner corner to brighten. No liner, one coat of mascara. Brazen’s Joan brow powder on brows.
Hello hotties! It’s been so long since I’ve brought you a FOTD post that I thought you were due one. Also, I have new hair! We bleached it out twice to a golden apricot color and then toned it with 7OR and 5 vol. I love it!

Hello hotties! Starting with the new year, I’ve pledged to bring you a hot product of the week review post. I will be highlighting products that I use daily and love personally. These are my holy grail products that I would be bereft if I had to live without.
I was introduced to overnight mineral treatments a couple of years ago. I was VERY skeptical as not only do I have sensitive skin, but I also tend to have dry skin. How could a *powder* work for that? Honestly, I have no idea…maybe it’s magic. All I know is that I can use this treatment once or twice weekly and my skin always looked refreshed and renewed.
This product comes with a little tiny powder puff for application but I prefer to use a nice fluffy kabuki brush. I recommend tighly closing eyes and mouth when you’re applying….it’s powdery and I recommend you try not to inhale it.
There are some folks that have more oily skin that prefer to use this product on bare skin underneath their mineral foundation. It’s reported to help control oil and extend the life of their mineral makeup. However you choose to use this product, just USE IT or at least give it a try…..you won’t be disappointed. Just look how radiant my skin is after using this magical product:
This product and many other amazingly effective skin care and makeup items can be found at The Rhinestone Housewife!

Warm, spicy nutmeg softened with vanilla.
