Dark Desires

We're all guilty of having a dark desire or secret...we're only human. Whether it's some sort of twisted fantasy, lust, or even just a guilty pleasure (cough, cough...Vampire Diaries....cough), we all have one and it's nothing to be ashamed of. Give your dark desire an homage with this deep and sultry look; you'll never want to leave the dark side....

" These lashes may be demure in length but have a personality all their own. The alternating short and long strands create beautiful volume. "

These lashes are a great way to add volume and drama without getting too wild and crazy. They have a pretty thick band, but are super comfortable to wear. I almost forgot I had these on...very lightweight and pretty! I'm really diggin' these lashes. Check them out at

 A big part of the inspiration for this look came from this outrageously beautiful look created by the one and only Meredith Jessica from Pigments & Palettes (aka my #1 fan). Click the image of her gorgeous eyeball to be taken directly to her look!


Hope you all enjoyed this ridiculously sexy look. These types of looks are my favorite - dark and dreamy. I think they make my eyes stand out like crazy.

As you might have noticed in the product list, I used a few eyeshadows from MakeupGeek. I was sent 12 of them to review, so keep an eye out for a review, look and swatches! I also have a couple of other reviews coming up (Drama Queen Cosmetics, Victorian Disco Cosmetics and Lime Crime's Palette D'Antoinette) so be on the lookout.

Stay happy and healthy, and I'll see you again soon!

  2. Sigh, seriously now. Stop it. I am your #1 Fan, *pouts*. Every new look is prettier than the other. (Think I have a girlcrush shhhh ♥)

  8. I got Baby Doll, Diamond Dust, Sapphire and Twilight. What do you think of them?

  9. You always slay your dark looks and I cannot express how happy I am that you're working with Faux now too. LOVE them, LOVE this and flattered to be mentioned as always in your posts. You're the bestest.

    I'm doing a Drama Queen review coming up soon too so I'm excited to see what you create with your shadows!

  10. great look! even though it's a dark eye makeup, it looks good on you!^^

    Beautiful look! ♥

  13. I really love your make-ups:)

  14. Beautiful look. I love it!

  15. Oh, this look is so beautiful! :) If I would wear it myself I would combine it with a black lipstick to add some extra gothiness. I think my own dark desire is the goth subculture. 

    Have a nice day!

  25. It's amazing, as usual with you :)

    Can I make suggestions for your blog?  I'd love to see also makeups with lighter colours: for example a theme in white, another in light blue, another with pale green, ... Some looks to wear easily everyday.
    Not nude colours but more simply looks with a main fresh color that would be inspired by Spring.  What do you think about my idea?

  26. Hey,

    I´m a new reader of your Blog.
    Love your gorgeous Look!!!
