Swatches: "Darling Whos" collection (DGC)

Today I'm finally able to share pictures and swatches of this wonderful holiday collection from Darling Girl Cosmetics! It's the Darling Whos collection and each color is nicknamed for one of Susan's "Darling Girls". 
(Darling Girls are sort of like spokesmodels for DGC; we're just a group of makeup-loving ladies who share looks we create using DGC products. We also share swatches and tutorials. We don't get paid but we do get sent previews of new collections in order to share with everyone! We also get a small discount off orders from the DG shop, and each month we get a coupon code to use when we order so we can try new products, again, to share with you all!)
Please enjoy these swatches, and trust me when I say that pictures don't do them justice! If you scroll to the end, you'll find a handful of looks I've done using some of the colors, as well as a list with links to each of the Darling Girls' sites!

Column #1: Chelsie-Roo Who, Niecy Woo-Who, Tati-Too Who. Column #2: Darling-Sue Who, Lefty-Loo Who, Aranza-Zazu Who, Sammi-Sue Who. Column #3: Cupcake-Woo Who, Emma-Loo Who, Jaycee-Boo Who.
 I did swatch them in the same order as the baggies, but forgot to rotate the photos.. but if you cock your head to the left, it's the same order. lol

Chelsie-Roo Who: a gorgeous mid-toned pinky purple with blue and green flashes! My pics don't show the shift but it is so gorgeous over Glitter Glue.
Niecy-Woo Who: a burgundy with flashes of violet, and gold sparkles. There's a look using this one at the end of the post!
Tati-Too Who: one of my favorites, a sparkly pink-toned copper. There's a look using this one at the end of the post!
Darling-Sue Who: cranberry pink with predominantly green shift. Love!
Lefty-Loo Who: mid-toned pine green with faint violet-pink shift and sparkle. A very unique color! Sadly it was impossible to photograph the shift :(
Aranza-Zazu Who: blackened antique golden-green; so much love for this color! It hits my sweet spot for greens dead on. Sigh♥
Sammi-Sue Who: matte royal purple base with copper and gold sparkle/shift. When used over Glitter Glue, the shimmer and shift take over. Such a unique and gorgeous color. There's a look for this one at the end of the post!
Cupcake-Woo Who: another favorite, a gorgeous brilliant royal peacock blue! It has aqua sparkles and ugh.
Emma-Loo Who: my color, because my sister sometimes calls me Emmaloo xD This color is beyond description but I'll try anyway; the site says it's an icey-pale mauve-lavender with delicate aqua and blue shimmer. In some lights it appears nothing more than a silvery white, but in other lighting you can see the pink tone more, as well as the sparkle. It's a really versatile highlight shade and I love it. I used it in a look at the end of the post!
Jaycee-Boo Who: Last but not least, yet another favorite of mine! Perfect golden taupe, another classic neutral! There's a look for this one at the end of the post!

Using Chelsie-Roo, Sammi-Sue, and Emma-Loo.
Jaycee-Boo on the lid, but not over Glitter Glue so it looks less gold than my swatch. An effortless daily neutral.
Tati-Too on lid; look at the sparkle!!
Niecy-Woo on outer hald of lid. (Inner half is There Is No Dana from the Who Ya Gonna Call collection.)

Look and video: Neutral Purple Pop

 Hey everyone! Today I'm bringing you not only a blog post with a new look, but also a video tutorial! I was home alone for a day and decided to take the make the most of it and make a video, lol. I hope you like it!
The look I did is neutral-ish eyes with a pop of purple on lips and cheeks; the featured products are Ladyhawke duochrome eyeshadow and Purple Haze blush by Darling Girl Cosmetics, and MAC Violetta lipstick. Keep scrolling for pics, details, and the video!

Click the pics!
 The video is available in 1080 HD; I don't know how to make this thumbnail bigger so you can either watch in Fullscreen mode or click the Youtube link to open it in a new window :)
-Darling Girl About Face Velvet Gel Primer
-Wet n Wild Coverall foundation in lightest shade
-loose setting powder
-Darling Girl blushes in Koalification* (to contour) and Purple Haze
-Milani eyeshadow in Bella Ivory* to highlight
-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper*
-Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze on lids as base
-Darling Girl Cosmetics eyeshadow in Ladyhawke (light taupe with gold/blue/green shift on lids)
-Darling Girl Cosmetics eyeshadow in Kilt-y Pleasures (milk chocolate brown matte on outer/inner corners and crease)
-Wet n Wild "Walk the Red Carpet" palette (glittery gold shade patted on center of lid)
-Urban Decay Naked Basics palette W.O.S to blend out edges and Crave as liner
-theBalm eyeshadow in Matt Gallagher in crease
-Darling Girl Cosmetics eyeshadow in Adoration to highlight
-Milani Bella Ivory* as highlight
-Wet n Wild gel eyeliner in Black(tightline)
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara
-Princess lashes* from Born Pretty Store
-theBalm eyeshadow in Presto and Urban Decay eyeshadow in Naked2 on brows
-Sonia Kashuk concealer quad
-MAC Violetta lipstick sample from The Body Needs
-Maybelline limited edition lipgloss in Mirrored Plum

I really hate the false lashes but I used them because I have a whole box of them and I don't want them to go to waste, lol. Other than that, I like how this turned out. The duo/shimmer in Ladyhawke shows up mostly goldish because I didn't use it over Glitter Glue, and because I used gold glittery shadow over top; in person the green and blue shift was more visible. It's a really pretty eyeshadow, a taupe with a twist! ;)
I love Purple Haze blush! If you're looking for a wearable purple blush you should give it a try; it is red/pink-toned so it's still wearable, but use a very light hand and blend it well because this blush is super pigmented. I love it and I'm so glad I got to use it for this look.
If you watch my video, please leave a comment here or on Youtube and let me know what you think! I'm still new at this, lol.

Thanks for reading!♥

Look: Autumn Inspired

 This is a look I did a few weeks ago and have been meaning to post but it took me a while to go through the tons of photos I took and everything, lol. I was experimenting with lighting in my basement because it got dark before I could take the pictures; I guess we're heading into the dark season so I'll probably have to get used to this... I'm not a morning person so I can't always do it before the sun goes down. I will miss that about Summer :(

Anyway, for this look I planned ahead of time exactly what I wanted to do using Verdelite eyeshadow from the Bejeweled collection by Sugar Skull Minerals. It's a gorgeous smokey green that seemed perfect for a rich Fall look. I also used Citrine from the same collection as a gold accent. Keep reading for pics and details!

-Darling Girl About Face Velvet Gel Primer
-Wet n Wild Coverall foundation in lightest shade
-loose setting powder
-Darling Girl blushes in Koalification* (to contour) and Cougar
-Sugarpill eyeshadow in Tako to highlight
-Milani eyeshadow in Bella Ivory* to highlight
-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper*
-dark green matte gel eyeliner on lids as a base
-Sugar Skull Minerals eyeshadow in Verdelite* (emerald green shimmer) on lids
-Sugar Skull Minerals eyeshadow in Citrine* (rich goldenrod) inner corner accent
-theBalm eyeshadows in Matt Gallagher and Presto in crease and outer corner
-Darling Girl Cosmetics eyeshadow in Adoration to blend out edges and highlight browbone
- Sugarpill pressed eyeshadow in Tako (matte white) tearduct/browbone accent/highlight
-Milani Bella Ivory* as highlight
-Wet n Wild gel eyeliner in Black
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara
-bottom lashes from Mesmerizing set by Fantasy Makers
-theBalm eyeshadow in Presto and Urban Decay eyeshadow in Naked2 on brows
-Sonia Kashuk concealer quad (kinda caked up under my eyes though)
-Wet n Wild Megalast lipsticks in 918D Cherry Bomb and 919B Vamp It Up
-Revlon gloss in Bordeaux

I really liked how this turned out. I was especially happy with the blending of the shadows in my crease and browbone, though it doesn't show as well in the photos. The lips also look a bit lighter than they were. I wanted a super dark vampy red but it just looks more red, lol. :P

Look: DarlingGirl "Tati-Too Who"

This is my look from Sunday; I wanted to use one of the new Darling Who colors so I went for Tati-Too Who, a gorgeously sparkly metallic copper shade. Keep reading for the details!

Please pardon my un-fulled brows; I was in a hurry to leave for church and wanted to make sure I got pics before I had to leave. Rest assured that I did fill them before finally running out the door. xD
-Darling Girl About Face Velvet Gel Primer
-Belleme BB Cream in Ivory and Nude Beige
-loose setting powder
-Darling Girl blush in Koalification* to contour
-Darling Girl blush in Neon Trees
-Milani eyeshadow in Bella Ivory* to highlight
-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper*
-Darling Girl Water Color Paint Pot in Concrete Rose all over lids as base
-Tati-Too Who* eyeshadow on lids
-Adoration eyeshadow to blend out edges
-Milani Bella Ivory* as highlight
-theBalm eyeshadow in Matt Gallagher (from Meet Matte palette) in crease 
-Ulta gel eyeliner in Plum
-Wet n Wild gel eyeliner in Black (upper tightline)
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara
-NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Nude Pink
-Maybelline Color Whisper in Lust For Blush
-NYX Mega Shine Gloss in Dolly Pink on center of lips

This was my first time using Concrete Rose WPP and I really like it. For me, a good base is essential to keep my eyeshadow fresh on my hooded oily lids. I am always afraid when trying a new base that it will crease horribly on my horrible lids, but this didn't. It behaved pretty much like my usual bases over my usual primer, which is great! I love the pink sparkles, which only adds to the beauty of any shadow you choose to put over it.
Tati-Too Who is such a gorgeous sparkly shadow; it's a shiny "new penny" kind of copper color with a tinge of pink to it, and pink sparkles! So pretty. I didn't even use it over Glitter Glue for this look and it was still so metallic and gorgeous. I will have swatches of each color from the new collection posted soon, I can't wait to show you how great they are! Or, you could just go buy the collection now because who likes waiting, anyway? ;)

Thanks for reading!♥
