Ushering in the New Year with Femme Boulevard

I decided to join in the Femme Boulevard fun for New Year's Eve! The prompt was: metallic eyes and power lips. A good time to break out Fyrinnae Polar Bear again, right? Right.

The eyes. I foiled Polar Bear to get a more metallic glow.

Clinique Brush-on Cream Liner Black
And the complete look!
Which required all of these things:
L-R: theBalm Shady Lady Vol. 3 Guilty Gwen, Chanel Mirifique, Clinique Brush-on Cream Liner, Fyrinnae Polar Bear, Beca Vicuna, MAC Can't Resist, Shiseido Camellia Compact
I doubt I'll actually be wearing any of this if we don't go anywhere, but it's fun to glam up to, uh, go to the grocery store...

And now, check out what everyone else is wearing!

What are you doing for New Year's Eve? And New Year's Day?

Kicking Off De-Grinch Week with an EOTD!

So, you already know that I'm not much for festivities. I hate Christmas music and I hate the hectic chaos of shopping malls during the holiday season. Essentially, I'm the Grinch, without the cool curly green fingers. But Christmas is next Sunday and I thought it'd be fun to put together a bunch of holiday-esque posts this week. I'll try to be spirited for you. We'll see how it goes. Thus: De-Grinch week!

Here's how it'll go:

Monday: I feature some sparkly, shiny things.
Tuesday: Holiday nails. Glittery, sparkly, red, metallic shades, plus a fun Christmas combo.
Wednesday: The Reds. My red lipsticks, all twelve (ugh, twelve!) of them.
Thursday: The Thursday post, of course, but with a few more festive links than normal.
Friday: Winter Scents. Sweet Anthem Winter 2011 thoughts.
Saturday: Cartoon EOTD: Frosty the Snowman

Today's post? A glittery, gold EOTD, of course.

Tarte Jewelry Box (highlight shade)
Sephora Long-Lasting Liquid Liner in 01 Black, 10 Glitter Khaki

There you have it! I felt like this look had enough dramatic flair to be worn to a party (of course, I didn't attend any...haha.). It would probably pair well with a nude lip - or you can be daring and pair it with red!  I've also been really loving these smokey olive and gold colors - the Annabelle Smoothie pencil is pretty awesome, and probably adds to that recent obsession; thank you, Tracy!
