I like pinks so this eye shadow made me think of nice pinks and purples for fall and winter. I also used the products from the Miss Piggy for MAC collection. I used Miss Piggy Pink eyeshadow, Penultimate liner in Rapidblack and Lash 36s for this look. Here's a step-by-step. All products...

No, I didn't buy it!) Figureheads, from the illustrated ones in Miss Rumphius, through the unusual Stephanie Seymour "trophy wife" piece, to vintage carvings from actual ships, may just be my favourite form of art. So I guess it is reigning figureheads around here.

) Following a quick perusal, here are my short-list picks from the latest edition: I like the purply-pink trim on this brown sweater. And the shell buttons: These shoes, though, are my real objet d'amour: Made by Brunello Cucinelli, their laces are not mere grosgrain, but silk...
