This look is much more dramatic in real life...the pictures don't do it justice, but alas, I don't have the time, patience,or expensive camera to do it better. I went to Victoria's Secret with my friend Autumn, and while she bought an expensive (but pretty) bra, I left with a mini bottle of sparkly potion, also known as silver glitter liquid eyeliner...only at Victoria's Secret could you find both :)
Starting from the bottom:
1-apply white eyeshadow over the entire eyelid.
2-draw a layer of thick black eyeliner, which will be the base for the sparkles.
3-color over the eyeliner with liquid eyeliner sparkles, making several layers so as to saturate fully with the glitter
This can be played up or down, and can surprisingly be worn in everyday situations if you use a light hand...your eyes will catch the sunlight and sparkle.

SUMMERTIME/and the livin's easy...

I've decided that I miss summer terribly. Every winter (if you can call 65 degrees with the rare occurrence of rain winter), I bust out my numerous jackets, scarves, tights, and boots with the same dependable glee. As soon as Christmas passes, I'm done. With winter that is.  Contributing to my summer nostalgia is the fact that two out of the three past January weekends have been sunny and 80 degrees (southern california really has a horrible case of weather ADD). Also, finals week is upon me, so instead of heading to the Laguna Beach Ritz-Carlton to solicit use of their pool, I trudge inside and spend the day pouring over calculus notes :( ... Whatever the cause, I have a persistant case of summer nostalgia, that can only be slightly remedied by the excitement of wearing these items...
(By the way, I know the wayfarers are now incredibly passé, but I think the white frames would make a nice statement against a perfectly tanned face.)
Alas, now I have to crawl under my covers wearing a sweater and socks, and étudie beaucoup for my French final revoir!
