Lady Gaga Failed Tutorial + Teal & Purple Meet-up Look

I'm really starting to suck with titles, aren't I?

Last week I asked on Twitter and Facebook for a tutorial request and I decided to go with the Lady Gaga Viva Glam II look. It was my first time attempting to record a video using my Lumix LX5 with a proper tripod so I totally screwed up the angle. Long story short -- No video tutorial! *pouts*

Allow me to continue rambling after the jump.
And.... guess which awesome beauty blogger I recently got to meet? At long last!

Even though the tutorial failed, I would still like to reattempt this look because I went with pixiwoo's choice on the lower lashline colors (main feature of the eye-makeup) and they ended up looking very off ie. purple, on my skin. For the rest of the shades used, I'm pretty satisfied with them. I better get it right the next time 'cause I only have one more pair of those daily disposable lenses, which I think are the best match to Gaga's eye color in the photo.

Here's what I used:

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #6
Anna Sui Spot Concealer in 03
Giorgio Armani Loose Powder in #2

Urban Decay Primer Potion
MAC Paint in Stilife
MAC Pigment in Gold Mode
MAC Pigment in Gold Stroke
Stila Eyeshadow in Kitten
MAC Eyeshadow in Tete-a-Tint
MAC Eyeshadow in Chamomile
MAC Eyeshadow in Sketch
MAC Eyeshadow in Signed Sealed
Maybelline Hypersharp Liquid Liner
I Nuovi Fluidliner in Noir
I Nuovi Fluidliner in Light
Maybelline Pulse Perfection Mascara
CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume Waterproof in Very Black
Shu Uemura Hard 9 Eyebrow Pencil in Seal Brown
Chamayu Brows Up in 1K (to tint the brows -- love it!)

RMK Lip Liner in 09 Silver Brown
MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Call My Bluff
NYX Megashine Lipgloss in Taupe

Moving on...

Last week, the girls and I finally got to meet Jenn from Lipglosseater! We've been wanting to meet up for the longest time and it's finally happened! It was just a brief gathering so I can't wait for the next! Road trip!

This weekend I'll be meeting another very special beauty buddy... All the way from the Philippines... Wanna take a gander at who that may be? ;)

This was the look that I wore to the meet-up and to work as well. I was really starting to miss my MAC Electric Eel which I've blended with something... I can't remember what... I think it was MAC Signed Sealed and the purple was Burberry Midnight Plum (one of my favorite shadows for lower lashlines). There was NYX Brown in the crease as well.
Rant: My MAC Rollickin' (light-medium teal with fine gold flecks) Paint Pot dried out!!!!!!! It's my favorite Paint Pot of all time! I can't find a dupe for it and I'm really hoping that MAC would repromote it. It's been 4 years since it came out! :(
