Makeup Monday: Sour Grapes (and a Giveaway!)


Eyes: Urban Decay Woodstock all over lid and lower lashline, Urban Decay Fishnet all over lid, Urban Decay Freakshow in crease (and blended outward), Urban Decay SWF on inner corners, MAC Petrol Blue liner on upper lashline and lower waterline.

Lips: MAC Magenta lipliner, Make Up For Ever aqua lip liner in 12C on outer corners, MAC Strong Woman (all over) and Firm Form (outer corners, blended inward) from the LE Strength collection.

Nails/rings: Candace ring and Barbie ring by besobeso by Luka, Estee Lauder Absinthe nail polish

The combination of this bright green nail polish and my new [favorite] purple ring made me think of Sour Grapes, a character from Strawberry Shortcake. I know they remade that cartoon but I’m not sure if they ever brought back the villainous lady and her pie-making companion. No matter, because the originals will always have my heart. That crazy woman rocked purple and green like no other, and to this day, the color combination brings me back. I created a look I thought a modern day Sour Grapes might enjoy – something just a tad sinister, but with some depth and dark beauty. What made you so sour, Sour Grapes?

Speaking of the rings that inspired this look, I’m holding a very special giveaway, and you can win these rings and then some. BesoBeso by Luka is giving one of my lucky readers a $500 shopping spree. With that kind of allowance, you can mix and match their handmade rings, earrings, and bracelets! To qualify, all you have to do is fill out this entry form. A winner will be chosen on February 14th, and one of you will have a very happy Valentine’s Day.

p.s. More info on the giveaway in this post.
