You Cannot Live on Makeup Alone (a TNBTTGSY giveaway)

Heresy, you say? Well readers, unless you’re Lady Godiva, you’re going to need some clothes to go with that makeup.

Today is my birthday, and thanks to designer clothing e-tailer, one of you will get the present.

Chickdowntown has very graciously donated this delightfully springy Tolani scarf (retail value: $85). It’s 9″ x 72″, vicose, with a hand-knotted fringe. I’m excited on your behalf.

If you can’t stand the suspense of waiting, entertain yourself (as I did… for several hours) by browsing Chickdowntown’s selection of clothes and shoes from Theory, Diane Von Furstenberg, MCQ Alexander McQueen clothing, and Tolani scarves.

How to Enter
To enter this contest, leave a comment on this post telling me (1) your first name and last initial, (2) a way to contact you (email, Facebook, Twitter, anything!), (3) What makeup would you wear with your new scarf? Photo submissions will also be accepted.

Leave your comment before 8:00 p.m. CDT on Wednesday, April 22. (I heard you, west coast folks!)

I’m very sorry to say that this contest is only open to the U.S. Foreign friends, one day I will do a contest for you only.

A winner will be randomly selected from all valid entries, and notified no later than Friday, April 24. That winner will also be announced here Monday, April 27. Winners will also be required to provide a full name and mailing address. Duplicate entries will be made fun of, and only the first entry will count. Good luck!

    >Soooo many options of makeup to wear with the scarf, the fact that it has so many colors makes it super versatile. for example a neutral eye with an orange lipstick, or pink lipstick. or to play up the eyes maybe pink with aqua on the eyes and a very sheer milky pink with shimmer on the lips. you can contact me at pau.fdz (at)

    >Thanks for pointing out my mistake.
    My name is Nina Y, I live in US, email:
    With this scarf I would wear L’Oreal foundation, Ulta palette’s blue eye shadow, Shiseido’s lip gloss, and Sally Hansen’s Marine Blue nail color.

    >Happy belated birthday! The scarf looks gorgeous. It’s so colorful – it’d go with just about anything springy and fun! I’m slightly envious of whoever wins it — but just in case it’s me, here’s my info: Rozina M.

    PS – I love that post your swatches on MUA too. I’m on the board everyday and always look forward to your swatch p*rn!

    >Happy belated birthday! I’m so tickled I came across this and your blog, you are rather delightful. :) Anyway! I’m Erin S and can be contacted at hurricanerin[at]gmail[dot]com. With this scarf.. hmm! I’m definitely feeling bright blush, like MAC’s Sweet William… and then pretty neutral e/s + gloss, but some fun, thickish black liner. :)

  • That's Just Lovely says:

    >Such a pretty scarf : ) I am Lisa T and my email is tansytee at gmail dot com. I think I might use my Smashbox Muse eye palette and for sure YSL #9 on my lips, as for my cheeks not sure depends on where I go with the eyes ; )

  • macface2adore says:

    >Amazing.I am Jennifer D. I can be reached via twitter: macface2adore
    I can only imagine how beautiful this would look with shu uemura eyeshadow trio in Utopia(pale gree,soft brown and pale blue).

  • ShrinkyDink says:

    >Gorgeous scarf! I’m Shana H. You can get in touch with me at I would definitely have to break out my Chantecaille for this — Bois/Aqua e/s duo (the Bois really tones the Aqua down nice), with my Mark Just Bitten blush and Revlon Glossy Nude l/g And of course, liquid e/l in dark brown and lots of Trish McEvoy mascara (my fave)

  • scufnode says:

    I think I would do a neutral eye with Chanel Vega, UD Zero eyeliner, some Lash Blast Mascara and a neutral lip with YSL Golden Gloss in Golden Nude. Throw my hair up in a ponytail, and Rock that scarf!!

    Thanks for the contest!!

  • Amber says:

    >Hi! I’m Amber M and my email is boadicea23@gmail. I know matching is unpopular but I’d wear that scarf with a shimmery beige wash of NYX Iced Mocha on my eyes and then the L’Oreal HIP Teal Gel liner and probably MAC Lipglass in Oh Baby. Blush would most likely be NYX Stone.

  • Reeni says:

    >Happy belated birthday! :)

    My name is Irene L. and you can email me at

    For such colorful scarf, I would keep my eye makeup neutral. I’d use NARS All About Eve duo on the eyes, add a thin winged line on the upper lid with Bobbi Brown Sapphire Shimmer ink gel liners, Bobbi Brown Pink Raspberry on the cheeks and lips (maybe add a thin coat of clear gloss, too) and finally, finish the look with big bold lashes by using L’Oreal Double Extend beauty tube mascara :)

  • Hannah says:

    >Silly me! I tried to enter in the NON-U.S residents…opps! But anyway hi, My name is Hannah R. and my email address is!

    First I would like to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY! And second I would wear Urban Decay Ransom eyeshadow, then the eyeliner would be Urban Decay Electric 24/7 Glide-on-pencil! :D I always like to try to find colours in the clothes I’m wearing that go with the colours of my make-up :D
