Lazy Saturday Makeup

For the last Urban Decay Vice3 Palette tutorial for SparkLife, I thought I'd keep it simple. It was one of those days when I was under the weather, and I just couldn't fathom the idea of changing out of my hoodie and yoga pants. But makeup? Sure, why not. Yes, it's my job and yes, I owed my editor one last Vice3 look. But honestly, something about the process of primping is good for the soul when you're feeling a little down.

Lovestruck Kittens

Just in case you missed it, I did an illustrated slideshow for SparkLife featuring adorable kittens using literature to get dates for Valentine's Day. Cheesy? Yes. Unnecessary? Absolutely. But who in this feline dominated internet world isn't a sucker for cuteness?

Valentine's Day Makeup on SparkLife

Every February, I feel the unrelenting need to express my dislike for frilly magenta hearts. I don't have anything against Valentine's Day itself, per se, but there is just too much sugary-pink sweetness assaulting my eyeballs every time I walk into a Walgreens.

Of course, I made my peace with the pink makeup long ago (somewhere between my angsty black lipstick days and my purple hair days), so I'm completely fine doing a soft pink makeup tutorial for SparkLife.

Then my dearest editors decide to frame it in—wait for it—A PROFUSION OF PINK HEARTS.

Eeeesh. See the whole tutorial here. Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day.
