Glamour Girls POTW 2! Into Darkness

I'm very excited this week for many reasons. Firstly, it's my turn for Darling Girl Cosmetics' Pick of the Week! Secondly, it's a fabulous week for sci-fi nerds everywhere with the season 7 finale of Doctor Who on Saturday as well as the opening of the new Star Trek movie on Friday. Which is what I'm celebrating with my look this week. I wanted something I could wear to "Into Darkness" that would be sci-fi/ spacey looking without being blatantly "Star Trek" looking. I think I pulled off exactly what I wanted. (There's nothing wrong with blatant adaptations, it just wasn't what I was going for this time ) Ever since I saw the first little teaser trailer, I was squeeing like any fangirl would. and OMG did you get to see the extra long, extended trailer I saw prior to the first part of "The Hobbit" film, *drool* I was salivating, I had hoped it was some sort of mix up and we were getting a super secret double feature. Nope.  Needless to say.. I'm stoked to see the movie. I'll be wearing this look to see the film.
POTW means I get to choose one of my most favorite shades to go on SALE for all of you beauties to purchase this week only!

My pick of the week is :
Lizard Spock
I've used this shade so many times in so many looks. It's so lovely, especially with hazel or brown eyes. Heck as long as you have eyes it'll make 'em look pretty! (I'm looking at you visor wearers! *wink*) It's not only the perfect shade of med -dark green, its golden sparkle and awesome metallic flashes when foiled is just spectacular. It's a logical choice Captain. 

What I used:
BFTE: Starstruck - high crease & inner lower lash line
Darling Girl Cosmetics: It's Showtime - lower crease
Wet n Wild MegaEyes Creme Eyeliner: Black -base
Darling Girl Cosmetics: Lizard Spock - inner 1/2 lid and outer lower lash line
Darling Girl Cosmetics: Bioexorcist - outer 1/2 lid
Darling Girl Cosmetics: Aziza - middle spot accent (no base, foiled over Darling Girl Glitter Glue)
Darling Girl Cosmetics: Corpse Candle - Highlight

Wet n Wild MegaEyes Creme Eyeliner: Black - waterline
Maybelline The Mega Plush Volum Express Mascara: Very Black

And just to make sure my look is complete and spaced out: 

Nails: Zoya : Storm 
(scattered holographic black, SO - so gorgeous! I think Uhura would look AWESOME in this shade)

Necklace: The KaBoom Nebula - by: Whimsy Beading 
(See the birth story of this sparkly, based on my favorite nebulae + see photos and read my review HERE )

Wrist watch: 
1998 Star Trek Collectible Watch, 
with U.S.S Enterprise (NCC-1701) second hand that orbits around the watch 

*** Why yes... it does play the theme song! *wink* 

Oh what? You came here for my eye look. LoL.. okay okay.. here's my makeup look! FINALLY.

Natural Light


"The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one." a great Vulcan once said.. and  Lizard Spock is a shade MANY should have.. so I thought it was perfectly logical for it to be my choice for POTW! :D  *GO GET YOUR NERD GIRL ON!* wheeeeeee!

Indoor Light. (I think this one shows the colors the best)
