FOTD Friday: Cool and Natural look from Korres

Happy Friday, darlings! Can you believe that the month of January is almost over? Whyyyyy? And how annoying is it when people say things like,

“OMG…2011 is off to a bad start.” OR “2011 is so not my year.”

One month can not determine how an entire year will go. We have to speak positive mantras. 2011 IS a great year. Keep livin’ and you’ll see what I mean. In the meantime, check out this cool Korres eye shadow palette.

Each shadow has its own door. Want to see what’s behind those doors? Hit the jump!

To wake up and do whatever I wanted to do.  I loved it.

The other day I made an “Things That Are Epic” list and here’s what was on it…

I don’t feel like going over the top with eye shadow and all of that but if you could give me some ideas on how to make an super bright lip, I’d love you for ever.

FOTD Friday: For Eyes that go POW!

Happy Friday, beauties! Only one more week until us Americans will be stuffing our faces silly on Thanksgiving Day. Let’s hope that my family is understanding about my dairy-free, green and organic dietary needs. And even if they aren’t, I’m going to have my vegan sweet potato pie on deck. Yea boi!

But in the meantime, reader Tanchira left a question on the Clumps  of Mascara Facebook wall asking me how to emphasize the eyes with eyeliner and mascara without looking like you’re wearing too much makeup. Twas one of the best beauty questions I’ve been asked in a while. So this one is for you, T.

How to make your eyes go from Zzzzz to POW!
