Short Spring Makeup Tutorial & Maybelline Product Review! ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’›

Hi Babes! I’m back today with some spring-spiration! ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ’• I haven’t done a makeup tutorial for a while and I thought, what a better way to come back with a great makeup look but for the new spring season! ๐Ÿ˜ Let’s get right into shall we???

So I was sitting here thinking of colors I associated with spring, first and almost instantly “pastel” came to mind. But I continued to simmer on the idea and I just wasn’t satisfied with pastels right now, I wanted something bolder. Something that could be worn out to a nice dinner date and you look fabulously spring-y but also suave and sexy. Then, I began thinking neutral with a POP of spring color! ๐Ÿ˜ So I ultimately decided on a chocolate brown cut crease look, with a vibrant turquoise winged liner to go with it. Please continue reading if you’d like to see what products I used and pictures of my the look I created! ๐Ÿ’–

  
Here are the products I used to create this look!

  
  
  
*Benefit “Big Beautiful Eyes” Eye Contour Palette (Dark brown shadow)

*Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in “Ibiza.” (Used as eyeliner)

*Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara 

*Maybelline Master Contour Kit

*Pixi by Petra Beauty Blush Duo in “Rose Gold.”

*Milani “Bahama Beige” Lip Stick

*FLOWER Beauty About Face Liquid Foundation

*Salon Perfect Half-Falsies (Not in photo) 

*OFRA Eyebrow Pencil in Brown (Not in photo)

*MAC Mineralize Concealer (Not in photo) 

*L’Oreal Infallible 16 HR Pro Matte Powder Foundation (Not in photo)

   
Now I just wanted to quickly review the Maybelline products for you! 

 
 

Maybelline The Master Contour Kit
: When I first saw this in my local Walmart I was eager to try it out. Unfortunately, I didn’t so much like the highlight or contour shades. The contour was much too light for my olive complexion, and the highlight was so-so. I have much better quality highlighters by MAC, Pixi and Wet n’ Wild. The one thing I really loved about this palette, was the blush! It is such a beautiful, healthy/natural glow type pink. Like you just got done working out or something, so pretty ๐Ÿ˜ I recommend this for the blush. But the contour and highlight might work better for you if you are very fair skinned. 

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara: This stuff is black gold! ๐Ÿ’– I have been in search of an affordable mascara that separates and lifts my lashes towards the sky ๐ŸŒž This one does just that. Maybelline is funny, they come out with TONS of different mascaras. We’re always seeing new commercials with supermodel’s with the best looking lashes, and I’ll go out and try all of these mascaras & I’ll hardly like any of them. But finally, one has lived up to it’s claims! ๐Ÿ’œ Highly recommend! No need for expensive mascaras when this one exists ๐Ÿ˜

Anyways, Thanks so much for reading babes! Please leave your comments and thoughts for me โค๏ธ xoxo

November Ipsy Bag 2015! <3

Hi beautiful people! Back from vacation, and it was more than wonderful. Spent a lot of my time relaxing in the deluxe room, and also grabbed some drinks with Bae at the casino. They also had a big beautiful pool and a full service spa/nail salon โค But anywhooo, i’m back to blogging and i came home to an Ipsy Bag! So clearly i had to post about it, let’s get right into it..

IMG_0196

This month’s theme was Beauty Blast: “Your November Glam Bag is a universe of brilliant beauties. Twinkle, twinkle, darling. It’s time to light up the sky.”

The girls on this card are absolutely beautiful, both sporting super dramatic lip colors, metallic eyes, long lashes and winged liner. Once again, this card had me really excited to see what was inside. Now, the bag is so so so cute. I love science, space and nebula’s of all sorts, so this hit home with me before i even broke into it. ๐Ÿ™‚

The first item i picked up was this Jesse’s Girl Eye Shadow Primer. This was cool at first sight but when i swatched it, it felt way too liquidy for my liking. So unfortunately i wont be using this and will pass it on to a friend. Here is a swatch for you all to see..

FullSizeRender (9)

It is almost my exact skin tone, but like i said before i prefer thicker eyeshadow primers. I pretty much ONLY use Mally’s Base Shadow. I definitely recommendย trying that one out if you are in search of a good one.

FullSizeRender (11)

The next item i was SO excited about was this bright green lipstick. Fran Wilson MOODMatcher, is not a green lipstick but a clear one that adjusts to your body and creates a color by itself. I was dissapointed, i actuallyย wanted a green lipstick and i thought it really went with the outer space theme haha. So i’m not too happy about this one, it’s a neutral pink color which i have tons of. Here is a swatch for you all.

IMG_0203

This product is pretty nice and hydrating on the lips, it feels great and smooth so i probably will use this just as a moisturizer and for a little hint of color for a simpler look for work or going out doing errands etc.

The next item was a simple sleek eyeshadow brush. I will definitely be using this, i can never have enough brushes! Especially shadow brushes.

IMG_0201

Now we have be a bombshell eye liner in “wild child.” Which is just black haha. It is okay, the swatch wasn’t very opaque or bold but i might use this for my waterline. Here’s a swatch..

The last item i received was this SMASHBOX Full Exposure Mascara. Always excited to try new mascaras, especially from good brands like SMASHBOX. ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_0202

Here is how my eye looks without any mascara:

Here is how it looks with SMASHBOX Full Exposure Mascara:

So i really like this stuff! I think anyone else who got this in their Ipsy Bag was probably stoked about this too! I may purchase the full size version. โค

Thanks for reading dolls, please leave comments and your thoughts for me to read and reply to! ๐Ÿ˜€ I missed you guys!

Halloween Space Mermaid Makeup! <3

Hi beautiful people! I am so sorry i didn’t get my Halloween Makeup posted yesterday, i had a terribly busy day! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But i am here now, with pictures and products to show you how i achieved my quick exciting look! I really loved how this turned out!

IMG_0054

IMG_0056

Here i used all of my new ColourPop single shadows to achieve a crazy bright look! I just started going with the flow and pickingย weird colors, it reminded me something in between like an alien girl and a mermaid, and with that my space mermaid was born โค These ColourPop eyeshadows are SO pigmented, SO vibrant, SO attention grabbing and glittery! Every makeup artist should stock UP on these shadow singles, no joke ๐Ÿ™‚

Let me show you what colors were used:

ย IMG_0079

Fizz (green), Ibiza (turquoise), Coconut (darker blue) and Fantasy (purple/pink)

I applied my MALLY base shadow to my eyelids, which is very similar to MAC paint pot in “Soft Ochre.” Then took Fizz and applied it all over my LID. Then i took Fantasy and applied it in my OUTER V and drug it across my lash line, then i used Ibiza to LINE my eyes: taking a eyeliner brush, wetting it, and then making a slight paste out of the color, applied the winged ย shape i wanted then went it with the same color but dry and applied it over to the moist color to set it and make it more vibrant. Finally i used Coconut to line my eyebrows and then filled them in with Ibiza.

*** I have turned several of these colors into bold liners by using the process above, these shadows are versatile and can be used as eyeliner as well ***

SCALES:

Used a fishnet stocking ย to hold against my cheekbones tightly, then i took Ibiza and Fantasy and packed it in around the holes leaving a scale fish type look.

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.

“Chinaโ€™s most esteemed haute couturier, Guo Pei, brings her legendary elegance to a colour collection inspired by her โ€œgarden of the soulโ€, 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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!

ย ย image

Here is what products i used!

  • 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/purpleย 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! โค My nail color is “Mint Candy Apple” by Essie!
