Happy 2013! It’s so exciting to usher in a new year, a new beginning and a renewed sense-of-self for so many of us. And an extra day to recover from New Year’s Eve madness, as well.
I really enjoy looking back at the year and seeing which posts proved most popular over the year. Not surprisingly, most of them were Breaking Down Beauty posts and I owe it all to Pinterest. Thank you, pinners, for the awesome viral marketing!
It’s been a quick minute since I’ve done a proper Breaking Down Beauty, which is mostly a time issue, but I have a couple of ideas floating around and will get to them very soon, promise!
If, when I started Painted Ladies, you had told me photos of my face would be covered in crumbled up aspirin in an online inspiration board site, I would hav had a good, old chuckle. But it’s true, and even though it’s a strange feeling to surf Pinterest and see my aspirin-masked face, I am so glad so many have found it helpful.
Glam eyes aren’t necessarily cat eyes, and this tutorial proves it!
A savior for all the makeup you would have dumped in the trash, I find myself using this technique on a regular basis.
I am just as surprised as you that this one was so popular, but I do understand. Ms. Hendricks is always stunning! Can I be a voluptuous redhead in my next life?
Another surprise, in two ways. First, I didn’t realize that Avon was so well received, and secondly, the quads really are that amazing.
This one I understand and then some – it’s a fantastic set of smoky, shimmery shadows. A delight!’
This little trick is so awesome because it really does work – oilies begone!

Megan’s woes with lip foils had us all laughing.
A really pretty way to change up a standard smoky eye.
No doubt, these lipsticks are perfect!
Wishing you all a very happy 2013 filled with abundace and prosperity! Here’s to 2013!!!!!
