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

Hi Babes! I’m back today with some spring-spiration! πŸ’•πŸŒ·πŸ’• 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! 😁 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! 😁 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! πŸ’–

  
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 😍 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! πŸ’– I have been in search of an affordable mascara that separates and lifts my lashes towards the sky 🌞 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! πŸ’œ Highly recommend! No need for expensive mascaras when this one exists 😁

Anyways, Thanks so much for reading babes! Please leave your comments and thoughts for me ❀️ xoxo

Pink and Playful Makeup Look!

So this afternoon i decided i wanted to do something fun and PINK for you all! I created one eyeshadow look, and used a couple different lip colors to show you how to quickly & easily change up this look and see what this would look like with different shades of lippies! πŸ™‚ It can be transformed into a bridal event look, a night on the town look, a lovely date look and anything in between! ❀

image

This is my girly sweet pink eyeshadow look, with no lipstick applied at all here. I have naturally pink lips as you can see though so this gives you an idea of what this eye would look like with a nude/pinky or mauve type lip.

Here’s the same eyeshadow with a bright pastel Β & vibrant orange lip! This is obviously more of an extremeΒ pink and peach combo for going out or partying, maybe heading to a concert.. something of that nature. πŸ˜‰

These are all of the products i used, and the lipsticks in this particular “going-out” look are MAC’s “Sushi Kiss” in the middle of my lips and Milani’s “Sweet Nectar” on the outer parts!

image

  • Milani “Sweet Nectar”
  • MAC “Sushi Kiss”
  • MAC “Saint Germain”
  • MAC Mineralize Concealer NC20
  • MAC Strobe Liquid Lotion
  • MAC Moisture SPF 15 Foundation in NC22
  • Mally Base Shadow/Primer (not shown above)

image

  • L.A. Colors Shadow Palette “Tease” (the pink shade)
  • FLOWER Bronzer/Blush Duo in “Glow Baby Glow”
  • L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow 24HR in “Iced Latte”

image

  • Neutrogena Facial Lotion for Sensitive Skin (always use this on a clean face before applying my makeup)
  • L’Oreal Infallible 16HR Powder in “Porcelain”
  • Almay Liquid Black Liner
  • Lancome Paris High Definition Mascara Black

Here is the eyeshadow look with a bright pastel pink lippie paired with it. This one is MAC’s “Saint Germain.” This one is still vibrantΒ but the lighter pink lip softens it up a bit for a daytime more formal event.

Gorgeous Matte Milani Lipsticks!

Hi beauties! ❀ I ran by Walgreens after work today and grabbed a few things a long with a couple lippies that caught my eye, and i am so glad i did!

image

I think these are all fall colors personally! Orange leaves & orange lippies! Haha πŸ™‚ I am always wearing orange & berry tone lipsticks around autumn. Be bold! ❀

image

These are all SUCH beautiful colors, they are very pigmented and have wonderful color pay off. For the affordable price i am absolutely in LOVE. These are all Matte shades, “matte glam” is just the name of the bright purple one. Here are some swatches!

(Sweet Nectar, Matte Glam, Sangria)

$5.99 USD each. Buy yours HERE!

As you can see all of these colors apply very nicely. These were like 2 swipe swatches so that really impressed me, achieving bright & vibrant color like this with little effort! πŸ˜€ Not to mention these color statement moisture matte lippies come in an array of beautiful colors.

Now, another wonderful thing i noticed about these lippies… They smell AMAZING. The sweet nectar one smells really fresh & fruity, the matte glam color smells creamy & sweet like MAC’s lipsticks, and the sangria one smells like nice hints of vanilla. I cannot explain how excited i was to find a lipstick that smells good from the drugstore!

Longevity; trying to get these swatches off my arm says it ALL. Haha. πŸ˜‰ So with all that being said, these are my new favorite affordable lippies. I highly highly highly recommend that you lovely girls try them out for yourself! You will be so excited too ❀

Thanks for reading darlings! Comment and share thoughts with me i LOVE talking to you girls πŸ™‚
