Last night I went to a magazine release party. Suite Tea magazine was celebrating the release of their August issue and my BF and I thought it would be an amazing opportunity to network others in the industry. My BF also had previously worked with the editor in the past. The magazine is a highly creative photography, fashion publication and the makeup looks on the cover are right up my alley.
This cover definitely shows off my favorite color - magenta!

I wanted to make sure my face was in order, so I sent a message out on twitter asking for makeup look ideas. One person suggested silver and glitter. I really liked that since my dress was black with a bit of purple, and I thought silver would coordinate nicely.
This also gave me the opportunity to use some of my new Graftobian products.
After applying my primer, I used my Graftobian Metallic Powder in Silver all over my eyelid. This product is like a pigment but better. You don't even need to apply it wet for it to be super vibrant.
Next I finally got to use my new Graftobian Glitter Glams. These liquid glitter products are amazing! I simply applied some using the nifty nail polish like brush onto a palette. I then took my synthetic concealer brush and just tapped the liquid glitter over the silver powder. Absolutely no fallout! I used the Opal Confetti Glitter Glam and it looked amazing in person. Too bad glitter is hard to capture in photos.
I also used my Black Velvet pencil from Graftobian to achieve my smoked out lower lashline. This creamy pencil gives me the intense black color I want. I set it with a bit of black eyeshadow for lasting powder through the night.
Here is a complete list of what I used:
-Graftobian Oxyderm Moisturizer
-Face Atelier Ultra Pro Foundation in #3 and #10 mixed
-Steelo Mattifying Powder
-MAC Shadester Sculpting Powder
-Steelo Body Shimmer in Fairy
-MAC Dame Blush
-MAC Accentuate Shaping Powder
-Steelo Cosmetics eyeshadow base in medium
-Rimmel Brow Pencil in Hazel & MAC Cork e/s for brows
-Graftobian Metallic Powder in Silver
-Graftobian Glitter Glam in Opal Confetti
-Graftobian Kohl Pencil in Black Velvet
-L'Oreal Liquid Liner Intense
-MAC Texture e/s
-MAC Carbon e/s
-MAC Femme Fi e/s
-Red Cherry Lashes
-MAC Lip Pencil in Spice
-MAC Brave New Bronze Lipstick
-MAC Liberated Lipglass
I also was able to try out my new Sigma Makeup Brushes for the first time. For travel brushes, these do not sacrifice on quality. I'll do a more in depth review a bit later once I've had additional time for testing.

Onto the pics!
This is really the only shot where you could see the glitter, but in person it was so pretty! Click on the pics to expand.
Here's a shot of me with some lovely folks from Lash Out Magazine. You can see a little bit of my dress here. It was only $12.99! The bottom part is black with a black elastic band at the waist (80's style) and has a tulip shaped skirt. I'm also wearing my new Guess Leopard Print Slingbacks at a steal from Ross for only $34.99.
Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
