Icey Blue Winter Makeup Look!

Hi beauties! Just wanted to post another quick Winter themed look today! I actually got a call this morning from my boss saying it’s a snow day and to stay home! How awesome is that? 🙂 So the snow has brought me this icey-princess inspiration, let’s get started!

IMG_0922

Today i used:

  • MAC Mineralize Liquid Foundation
  • MAC Mineralize Concealer
  • L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Powder Foundation
  • SMASHBOX Halo Glow Color Boosting Powder (bronzer)
  • MAC Strobe Liquid
  • MALLY Base Shadow/Primer
  • Tarteist Clay Paint Liner in Black
  • SMASHBOX Full Exposure Mascara
  • Z-Palette: A couple blue shade variations & white
  • Milani Baked Blush in Bella Rosa
  • Salon Perfect Falsies
  • DUO Lash Glue

As you can see i used a few different shades of blue to create depth in this particular look. I also added a very small extra wing to my liner, while bringing it out from my bottom lash line as well as on top. This made my eyes look wider and cuter. ❤ When using bright colors like these, use a shade lighter than your base color to blend things out. If you don’t have a lighter shade of blue, go ahead and use white and you can easily create the faded out, lighter blue look.

For my lips i applied a primer, then dabbed a silver shadow in the middle of my lips, then applied the same lighter blue color for filling in the rest of my lips, followed by lining key areas with a darker blue shadow.

I hope you all loved & enjoyed this post! Thank you for reading and please do leave comments and thoughts for me, i miss talking to you guys! ❤

Simple Halloween Mermaid Look!

Okay, so i did a shimmery blue & green eyeshadow look with a pink lip and then with a lavender lip just to see which i preferred. (I liked the pink better with my skin) Then i decided that i wanted some sort of design on my face/neck.. So, i used a simple piece of white printer paper to cut out some scales & gill stencils with a razor blade 🙂 Crazy simple and crazy easy if you need something quick. Then i just held the stencils on the spots i wanted to transfer them onto, (lotion up area first it makes it a looot easier) and used a makeup brush with the same color eyeshadows on it to fill it all in. Then peel it off and VIOLA! 😉

Here is everything i used:

image

  • Lancome High Def Mascara
  • MALLY base shadow
  • L.A. Colors eyeshadow palette “waterworld”
  • Sally girl single eyeshadow “Aqua”
  • SMASHBOX Halo Glow Color Boosting Powder (bronzer)
  • Serious Skincare A Primer Vitamin A Line Filler
  • MAC Strobe Liquid
  • Age Rewind Under Eye Concealer
  • Almay Liquid Eyeliner (was going to use black MAC dip down but decided not to)
  • Paper!
  • Razor Blade

So, if you’ve got some gorgeous water-themed eyeshadows laying around, bust them out for a Halloween party! Try out this look for yourself, all you need is some gorgeous bright eyeshadows, a razor blade and some printer paper! 😀 You can create the exact stencil/shape you have in mind too, which is the best part. Make a pretty emblem for your forehead or big scar for your cheek, options are endless ladies!

Thanks for stopping by girls! Hope you liked this post ❤ Comments and thoughts please! 🙂

I find these products to be so interesting, artistic & cultural, and definitely something different for a MAC collection. As you can see there are gorgeous gel liner pots, quad shadow palettes, single blushes, special “garden of the soul” brushes & even more available in this particular collection. I have no doubt that girls will be buying these items up not only because of the eye catching & feminine packaging, but the colors and shades that are focused on are just so wearable and unbelievably glamorous at the same time.

“China’s most esteemed haute couturier, Guo Pei, brings her legendary elegance to a colour collection inspired by her “garden of the soul”, merging vibrant jewel tones with rich neutrals, punctuated by deep graphite. Featured are eye shadow quads in deep blues and honeyed neutrals, Lipstick and Cremesheen Glass in creamy pinks and corals to bright reds and luscious nudes.

Violet Eyes and Heroine Lips!

Hi beauties! Happy friday! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend 😉 I really don’t feel good today but i really wanted to do a look for all of you so here’s what i came up with!

  image

image

Here is what products i used!


image

image

image

image

  • MAC “Heroine” Lipstick
  • Hard Candy Mod Quad in “Under the Moon”

I absolutely love this little eyeshadow palette. It was SO cheap and the colors are so stellar. It comes with a white/purple lumi type shade, a very pastel cyber violet, a deep smokey purpley-red color and a magnificent dark indigo sparkle.

image

  • Mally Base Shadow/primer

image

  • FLOWER blush/bronzer compact in “Glow Baby Glow”
  • MAC mineralize concealer
  • Lancome High Definition Mascara
  • Almay Liquid Eyliner “Black”

This is a very wearable look as it is, or if the purple lip is too much you can really lighten it up if you used a more neutral/nude lip color. Try cheaper palettes if they catch your eye because you never know when you’ll get super lucky and find a gem! ❤ My nail color is “Mint Candy Apple” by Essie!

Mini MAC Haul! Quick Swatch Review!

Hi girls! Super excited because i received a special package in the mail from MAC cosmetics today. I ordered a few different lipsticks to review quickly & show you all! I’m sure you may be familiar with some of them. I have repurchased one of these colors and the rest are new to my collection 🙂

Let’s get started!

image

image

image

So this is what i grabbed:

  • Sushi Kiss
  • Flamingo
  • Saint Germain
  • Heroine (repurchase)

And they sent me a free sample of the strobe liquid, i have a full size bottle of this but i like it a lot so i figured i might as well grab a sample for traveling or something.

image

Here are some swatches!

image

Sushi kiss, Flamingo, Saint Germain & Heroine.

Now let me show you them on my actual lips!

Sushi Kiss:

image

Beautiful & bright pastel, creamy peachy color! I absolutely love this one and was very excited to order it. And obviously these lipsticks are great & creamy!

Flamingo:

image

This is the most subtle color of the group, it just looks like a beautiful natural healthy pinky/peach glow on your lips, it is sooo pretty. I’m really glad i picked this one up.

Saint Germain:

image

This is a sweet pastel baby pink. I was worried it may be a little to light for my skin tone since i’m very fair, but it really is gorgeous and makes me look more tan and i’m definitely happy i got it! ❤

Heroine:

image

Since i really had barely any of this color left, i obviously had to get it back in time for fall! This is a beautiful deep but vibrant orchid/berry type color, It would look stunning on any skin tone in my opinion! 🙂

Gorgeous Fall Makeup Look!

Hey ladies! I am really excited for fall! I love the warm colors and the cozy atmosphere it brings to all of us ❤ It makes me feel so at home. I am also a fall baby so my birthday is coming up very soon! Woo woo! ;D Anyways, autumn doesn’t just bring orange leaves and delicious yumy food, but makeup inspiration! Here is what i came up with: 

image

image

I wanted to do something glamorous.. Big, beautiful eyes and of course, a smashed berry lip! A fall look wouldn’t be complete without a nice deep berry lippie. 🙂

Here is everything i used on this look!

image

image

I pulled a few colors out of these three different eyeshadow palettes, and then i have a fourth single shadow i used in my inner corner area.

image

Here is the first fantastic palette. It is the Estēe Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette, and the color i used is the very bottom right eyeshadow in “Chocolate Bliss.”

image

Now we have one of my favorites of all the L.A. Colors palettes i own, “Glamorous.” The shadow i used is in the bottom left corner. It’s a gorgeous baked reddish brown color ❤

image

Last palette i used in this look was the Maybelline “The Blushed Nudes” Palette. The color that i used is the one my tweezers are pointed to! 🙂

image

Now there’s the single eyeshadow i used, it is a L’Oreal Infallible 24HR Eyeshadow in “Iced Latte.” It is SO pigmented and gorgeous, it picks up light so beautifully too! Very easy to blend.


image

image

And the rest of the stuff i used:

  • L’Oreal Infallible “Everlasting Plum” Lipstick
  • Almay Liquid Eyeliner “Black”
  • Mally Base Shadow/Primer
  • MAC Mineralize Concealer NC20
  • Lancôme High Def Mascara “Black”
  • FLOWER “Glow Baby Glow” Blush/Bronzer Duo
  • L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 16HR Powder
  • Salon Perfect “Perfectly Glamorous” False Lashes
  • Revlon Single Shadow “Vintage” (for eyebrows)

Pastel Paradise Eyeshadow Look! Inexpensive L.A. colors palette!

Hello again ladies! I couldn’t help myself, i really wanted to do something pastel and bright lately for you all so i decided to go ahead and do it! Let’s get started, this is the look i came up with:

image

image

Now here are all of the products i used!

image

image

image

The Eyes:

  • L.A. Colors palette in “Tease” (middle three colors)
  • Lancôme High Definition Mascara “Black”
  • Almay Liquid Liner “Black”
  • Salon Perfect False Lashes “Perfectly Glamorous”
  • Mally Base Shadow/Primer

image

Here’s a close up of the very affordable but very good quality L.A. Colors shadow palette in “Tease” i picked up. I believe this was $1.50 USD.

 The Face:

  • Revlon Color Stay Whipped Creme Makeup “150 Buff”
  • Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
  • MAC Strobe Liquid Lotion (on cheekbones)
  • FLOWER “Glow Baby Glow” Bronzer/Blush Duo
  • MAC Mineralize Concealer “NC20” (under eyes/blemishes)

image

Just wanted to add in a quick review about this Creme Makeup by Revlon. I absolutely love this stuff, it is whipped to perfection and applies onto the skin SO nicely. As you can see it gives me full flawless coverage too. Purchase yours HERE!

The Lips:

  • PALLADIO “Bella Pink” Matte Lipstick
  • No7 Precision Lip Pencil “Nude”
  • NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss “Nude Pink”

image

image

If you have not tried or heard of PALLADIO lipsticks, you need to at least pick up ONE for yourself. Especially if you are into matte lips, their formula for these matte shades are just spot on and look so stunning on the lips. I applied a NYX gloss over this palladio matte color though, so you can’t tell. Purchase one HERE!


Nails:

essie Nail Color in “Butler Please!” 😀 Just if it caught any of your eyes.

Dress Up & Dress Down This Look! Beautiful Natural Eyes!

So there has been thunder & lightening and it has been raining cats and dogs outside all day today. I’ve decided to relax and stay indoors, make a few white russians, and do a beautiful dress it up & dress it down double look for you all!

image

My little girl seems to be all about the idea! 😀

Here is what i came up with…

image

image

image

image

image


Here are all of the products i used for each look, i will let you know what the differences are:

image

  • Milani Baked Powder Blush in “Luminoso” (everyday look)
  • MAC Sheer Tone Blush in “Pinch Me” (dramatic look)
  • FLOWER Luxury Lip Color in “Cactus Flower” (dramatic look)
  • Estée Lauder Bronzer in “Bronze Goddess” (both)
  • MAC Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation (both)
  • MAC Mineralize Concealer (both)
  • bareMinerals Loose Eyeshadow in “Chenille” (both)
  • Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation (both)
  • SMASHBOX “Photo Finish” Face Primer (both)
  • Hard Candy MOD Quad Baked Eyeshadow Palette in “Pink Interlude” Shade 2. (both)
  • Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in “Vintage” For Brows (both)
  • L’Oreal LA Palette NUDE 1 “Shade 7” (both)
  • Almay Liquid Eyeliner “Black” (both)
  • Lancôme High Definition Mascara “Black” (both)
  • Ardelle Fake Eyelashes Not shown above (both)

So you can see from that list, as simple as it sounds and as different as I appear in these two looks, i only swapped my blush and lip stick! It shares the exact same eye shadow and face routine, but when you switch out your cheek and lip color, you can drastically change your overall appearance!
