War Paint

I usually don't have a very elaborate makeup routine. If I can muster up the energy in the morning, I put on some mascara and add some liquid liner if I'm feeling extra adventurous. Sometimes I'll do a badass cat eye a la Rookie or some smudgy bronze eyeshadow, but never anything too exciting. I need a kick in the pants to my everyday makeup looks. Fortunately, the internet has got my back! I found a bunch of interesting new styles to try. The looks I like the most are smudgy, shimmery messes that are undone, pretty, and darkly ethereal. 

First of all, check out the makeup from Erin Fetherston. And the clothes. Amazing!

Images from here.

Dramatic and interesting, but still doable and wearable. I'll be experimenting with my silver and black eyeshadow.

Tumblr also has a plethora of pretty girls wearing pretty makeup. Here are my favorites:

Christian Dior S/S 2008 RTW, Coco Rocha

Charlotte Free (thanks, Ethan! I didn't even recognize her!)

Grace Gao, Vogue China - February 2012

Also, I just ran across this brand of false eyelashes called paperself, and I'm salivating over them. Just look at them! They're mind-blowing!

They're cutout paper designs! So cool, amirite? Effie Trinket wears some of these in the upcoming Hunger Games movie (which I am OMG SO EXCITED for!), so that's cool too. I wish I had money/an excuse to buy some of these!

What's inspiring you lately?


  1. I like this post sooo much! Those girls and make ups are adorable, and I like that confetti and glitter outfits! <3

  2. Those eyelashes are just amazing - seriously gorgeous and inventive. And i lke all your makeup looks - very fairytale like and magical.


  3. glittery makeup is the best! all of the pictures look awesome

  4. I like all the photos, but now I desperately need a tutorial of the silver and black make up! Last time I tried it I looked like a clown! Anjelica Houston's wig is wonderful, need it!

  5. I really like those Erin Fetherston vibes, and that girl with the pink hair is Charlotte Free! (but I don't know what the shot is from)
