Galactic Glory

Do you ever look up at the night sky and wonder if someone - or something, is staring back at you?  Ever hope a man in a blue box will appear and take you away to see the stars, and other-worldly planets? No? Just me? Alrighty then! Anyway, I love to get lost in thought when it comes to our universe, along with it's galaxies, nebulae, it's wonders, and of course, the unknown. I've always been fascinated with space. I remember begging my mom to take me to the library when I was a little girl just so I could check out books about space, and stare at the beautiful pictures. 

This look is inspired by the dark and mysterious beauty of the universe, more specifically of an image I found of the Carina Nebula. The Carina Nebula is a large bright nebula that surrounds several open clusters of stars. Eta Carinae and HD 93129A, two of the most massive and luminous stars in our Milky Way galaxy, are among them.

  • Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Buff
  • MAC Studio Fix Powder in N4

  • BFTE Eye and Lip Primer
  • NYX Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean all over lids as a base
  • Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Corrupt over base and blended out, also applied in crease to define
  • Victorian Disco Care Package Glitter in Tac Nuke on lids and lower lashes (applied with GDE Foil Me)
  • Mixture of reds and browns from the BH Cosmetics 120 palette applied above crease and lower lids
  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Booty Call on brownbone
  • NYX Eyeliner in Jet Black on waterline
  • ELF Studio Cream Liner in Black
  • FAUX Lashes in Sasha

  • Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blush in Spicy and Sweet

  • Makeup Geek Lipstick in Shy
  • Manic Panic High Voltage Lip Gloss in Naked

I hope you guys enjoy this dark, sparkly and smokey look! I think it gives and nice contrast and it is definitely broody. These are my favorite types of looks to wear; I just love dark smokey eyes! I also love that this isn't a typical colorful galaxy eye that we're all used to seeing. 

So let's end this post with a fun question...
Do you believe in other life forms out there other than us human beings? I definitely do. I don't think they're tall, skinny green aliens per say, but our universe is so vast, even beyond our imaginations, that there is just no room for doubt in my mind that we are not alone. That makes me excited. Maybe that makes me weird? Who knows. What I do know that if they ever decided to pop in to say hello, this is the first thing I'm doing:

Then hopefully see this:

Take care!

  1. Ooh, you seem to be going through a dark period now that you're back with new looks. Mama likes! You really ought to be doing tutorials lady, I could snatch all your skills .... I mean .... learn a lot from you :P

    As for Aliens, I think other life exists, just not in a capacity that we could probably conceive of or imagine. Someone once said to me, there are only two possibilities. Either we are alone in this universe, or we aren't. And both options are equally fascinating/terrifying.

    1. I am! You know I love my dark smokey looks ;)

      And yesss, I know! I will start filming tutorials SOON!

  2. I love rhis dramatic look Ronnie! Its awesome that you are interested in spacey stuff! I think space and galaxies are a great inspiration! Gorgeous look!

    And I think there's got to be something else out there, as huge as the universe is.

    Amazing! Love your looks, always well worked, originals and awesome <3

    I was thinking about buy a compact powder to use it like a foundation and a finishing powder over my base. I'm combination to oily and really pale. What product would you recommend me? :) I love natural finishes!

    Thank you so much!

    1. Definitely try Mineralize Skin Finish by MAC! It has a medium coverage, and leave a semi-matte natural finish :)

  10. I hope every day that the Doctor will come and whisk me away as his new companion!!! :-)

  11. I am obsessed with the stars, nebulas and galaxies as well and this looks is other worldly. I wish I could wear looks like this daily but alas it is not possible in the coporate climate I work in. :( I am beyond jealous.
