Monday Mix: Taking Requests, Sales

By Voxy  

I’ve heard some good feedback about the eye looks that I’ve recently started putting up, so I’m glad that’s been useful. Are there other things you would like to see? This can include things like looks using particular colors, tutorials on various topics, techniques you are curious about, coverage of particular products, more or different kinds of photos, or anything else you like. We haven’t had a Fundamentals post in awhile; are there Fundamentals topics we should explore?

Let me know what you would like to see and I’ll check into it!

    Review request: I’d love to see your review of the new Mac Venomous Villains line. The packaging cracks me up.

      Heh heh. I know what you mean. Unfortunately, I’m not buying anything from the collection — there wasn’t anything that struck me as SO AWESOME I MUST HAVE IT. There are some interesting lipglass colors but that formula drives me nuts — so sticky!

      I am kind of interested in their new pro longwear lipcremes and foundation, though.

    I love your eye looks; I know you’ve already reviewed it, but could you do some looks with the Naked palette? I love that thing but I don’t think I am using it to its full potential.

    I’d like to do a sort of smokey eye with the darker colours but I’m totally useless at blending them properly so end up with a lot more dark on more of my eye than I had intended — if you could do a tutorial on how to actually apply and blend eyeshadow correctly that would be really useful! I realize that is something I should absolutely know how to do already, but I apparently don’t. I blame my brushes, it’s not me ;)

      Oh yeah! I forgot I never did that. That would be fun.

      Tomorrow’s post includes a “baby” smoky eye (only a very little bit of smoke, and work-suitable). It uses Gunmetal from that palette.

      And yes, a fundamentals tutorial on the application of eyeshadow is definitely possible. Thanks for the suggestions!

        You must have read my mind, this is exactly the look I was thinking of :)
