Browsing the MUFE boutique and saw this promo image for their Rock For Ever collection.

Close up

Hot, right??? I had to recreate this look.  It’s certainly not an everyday look but if you are wearing a black or silver Carnival costume, this would be a stunning look! Add some glitter on the lid or rhinestones and it would be all over!

The Rock For Ever collection was released late last year and is a series of trial-sized mini sets of Aqua pencils, Star Powders, mascara etc. housed in a studded container. Cute. Especially the Best of MUFE collection set.

I finally got the already cult classic, the Urban Decay Naked Palette!  Super excited!!!  This palette came out I think in the summer of 2010, and it flew off the shelves like hot bread!! Folks are hawking it on Ebay for hundreds of dollars already.  Now, before I go any further…..

LOTD: Using MUFE's Maize Gold

Hey!

So I am finally getting around to using one of the new Makeup For Ever Metal Effect Powders in #2, Maize Gold.  Brilliant burnished golden powder.  I had no problems using this colour.  Intense  pigmentation, finely milled, easy to use.  I paired it with one of the few matte pigments that I have, M.A.C.

Anyway here’s the look…
