Pinup Girl Makeup Tutorial

As requested by my dear cousin all the way across the country, I present to you all, my version of pinup girl makeup. I put a modern twist on a classic look, highlighting more than the true to period makeup. With so many advances in cosmetic technology, why not upgrade the look a little? My new must-have for a modern pinup look is MAC’s new Electric Cool eye shadow in “Pure Flash!” It adds the perfect amount of shine and irridescenceĀ to your lid for a hint of glamour. The most important factors in a pinup look are the winged liner and defined eyebrows. Tamed and sculpted brows give that polished finish that pinup models have. Brows are usually forgotten in most people’s makeup routine, but the attention you give to them can make or break your look. In my Pinup Girl Makeup Tutorial, I use some of my favorite beauty products including some new Sigma brushes. Thanks for watching. Enjoy!

Tokidoki Soda Shop Collection Review & Tutorial

I got more Tokidoki makeup! I purchased the Soda Shop palette along with a Kabuki Brush and Pittura angled blush brush. As you will find from my review, I liked everything except for the eyeliner. I hope you enjoy my review and natural bronze tutorial using the Tokidoki Soda Shop palette!

AIDS Walk 2011 Donation Giveaway

In the past, I have registered under the name Pomps n’ Gloss for the annual Raleigh AIDS Walk + Ride. This year, I am going as just me, Marissa. No advertisements. No gimmicks. Just plain ol’ charity fun. I love meeting the diverse group of people that walk every year. I most definitely look forward to petting the mascot of Team Llama. Usually I bring someone with me, but this year all I’m bringing is my ipod.

Last year I raised about $300, but this year I’m reaching out to all of you for support. I think my goal of $500 can be easily attained if everyone pitches in what they can. Every dollar counts, so don’t feel like what you can afford isn’t good enough. I’m donating my time to walk because I can’t afford what I want to contribute monetarily.

I know people donate out of the goodness of their hearts, but who says I can’t attach a great big thank you to your contribution? This year I’m offering an AIDS Walk 2011 Donation Giveaway. I’m raffling off a prize pack so AMAZING it will blow you away! You can watch my video below to see what you can win.
