Magic Spells While You Wait: Fraidy Cats Welcome!

Magic Spells While You Wait: Fraidy Cats Welcome || Happy Halloween || Allegory of Vanity

Witches go riding, black cats are seen, the moon laughs & whispers, the carved pumpkins gleam, for tonight fellow trickers it is Halloween.
I'm all ready for one of my favorite days (and nights) of the year! Happy Halloween!

The Artist

The Artist || The Metropolitan Museum of Art || New York City || Allegory of Vanity


Every time I visit the Met, I see this artist seated in various places throughout the museum, transforming 3D works of art into beautiful black and white replicas on paper. Each time, some place different, ever since I can remember.

Wish List: NARS Canberra Hardwired Eyeshadow from Holiday 2014 Color Collection

Wish List: NARS Canberra Hardwired Eyeshadow || Holiday 2014 Color Collection || Allegory of Vanity


NARS Canberra Hardwired Eyeshadow || Holiday 2014 Color Collection


Purple eyeshadow, when smudged liberally, aimlessly, yet voraciously all over the lid will assist one in achieving a most flattering (and my favorite) kind of smokey eye. The result, I find, is intense yet not contrived (I woke up this way ::cough::)

I will be checking this one out ASAP; hopefully it will be a good tone for my complexion!
