  1. That is a hot look. I love hot pink lips with dark eye makeup.

  2. I want that eyeshadow so bad! It’s gorgeous! You look gorgeous as well….:)

  3. Fiji doesn’t look light here and it does impart a really nice glow! *drool* Mekong looks really nice on you… now you make me want this eyeshadow again… argh…

  4. Gorgeous! You’re so talented.

  5. love this look! i can’t seem to find that eyeshadow on nars UK’s website. could you recommend a MAC alternative to the mekong? xx

  6. Thanks everyone!

    Mekong really is a pretty color and I *love* the pigmentation! You guys should definitely get it!

  7. Sarah,

    Mekong is from the Fall 2009 collection so chances are it is not out in the UK yet. I don’t think there is a close dupe from MAC.

  8. Mekong is a very beautiful colour!
    and I love your lower lashline.
    but I didn’t like the eyes with the pink lips, I prefer hot pink lips with neutral eyes but you stay georgous ;)

  9. Hi Phyllis, I was just wondering what look would you recommend for a day at school? Some girls slap on TOO much makeup but i don’t want to look plain.. Any tips? :)

  10. I love the false lashes, they look gorgeous.
    Do you think you could do an entry about lip primer?, I’ve never used it before and i don’t really know anything about it.

  11. I love this look! It’s so daring, but beautiful at the same time!

  12. This look is amazing!!! thanks Lana for asking in other post I found this! thanks!! really great!

  13. LOVE it! Very pretty!
