Holiday in the City

This is a BE collection that I bought only for the bag ... and then waited almost a year to use the colours. I had previously tried using Bubbly and it hated me ... so I wasn't too thrilled with these colours ... and purples like Bordeaux tend to look downright BROWN on me so that didn't speed up my enthusiasm either!

But now that I have used it ... I LOVE it! Whoever said you can't mix purples and peaches (heard that alot lately) is missing out! I love combos like this ... and will try to whip up some more in the future!


basic face routine
Posh blush; used Tapered Blush brush

MAC Metal-X Cream Shadow in Virgin Silver over entire eye area; used fingers
City Lights dry on browbone and around entire eye area; used Flathead Shadow brush
Bordeaux dry in crease, lining lower lashline, and outer third; used double ended Shaping Eye brush and Wet/Dry brush
Bubbly dry on inner two thirds; used Wet/Dry brush
Lancome Oscillation mascara in black

Duwop Prime Venom
MAC Plum Dandy lipstick

Questions? Comments? Please feel free to post ... and thanks for looking!


  1. A beautiful look AB. How do I print off the tutorials w/o all the balck?

  2. As of right now, the only way I have found to print something is to copy and paste the one you want into a document file on your computer.

    Sorry about that ... so far that is the biggest downside I have found to using the blog instead of the webpage.

  3. Hmm, I haven't had any interest in Bordeaux until now. I will put this on my list of colors to check out. (as if I needed more, you already have me checking out MAC lip products and shadesticks. Great job enabling, Erin. You look fantastic in these colors as well!


Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
