Everyday Winter Makeup

Hi guys!

ImageImage

I’m back today with my everyday makeup for this new year. I’ve been loving this look for work and everyday. It’s super simple, and using natural colors to make any eye color pop. As for the face, I’m using some new products that I am IN LOVE with!

Let’s jump in.

 

Okay, so, as always, I start out with my eyebrows. I’m just going to fill them in as usual with my Anastasia brow wiz.

ImageImage

 

Now I’m going to take the Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow in Sandy Gold to  prime my eyes. This is essentially the same as a MAC paint pot. It’s a cream-based primer with a gold sheen to it that adds a warmth to the shadows i’ll be adding later.

ImageImage

 

Now, surprise surprise, my NYX jumbo eye pencil in Milk. I’m going to blend this under my eyebrow and in my inner corner.ImageImage

 

 

Now I’m going to use my Too Faced “All of my Favorite Things Palette” that I got for Christmas. I’m going to use a fluffy angled brush and the color “Cream Colored Ponies” under my brow.

ImageImage

 

 

Now, with the same brush, I’m going to take “Snowflakes”, a shimmery warm white, and apply this in my inner corner.

ImageImage

 

Now I want to warm up the crease before adding my defining shade. I’m going to take “Chocolate Milk” and a fluffy blending brush and swirl this through the crease. This  is also going to make blending much easier.

Now I’m going to apply “Honey Honey” to my lid with a flat shader brush.

Now I want a dark but shimmery brown for the outer corner and crease. The dark brown will still give me the definition I want, but the shimmer will make it less harsh. I’m going to mis “Crisp Apple Strudel” and “Dark Chocolate” with a fluffy crease brush.

Then I just blended the outer edges of the color.

 

Now I’m going to line my eyes with the L’Oreal Super Slim Liquid Liner in Black.

Image

 

Now apply your favorite black mascara. I used the Sephora Outrageous Volume mascara.

Image

Now moving on to the skin.

I’m going to use the Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation in the lightest shade (Pale People Problems :/  )  and dot that all over my skin, then blend it in with the Real Techniques Angled Kabuki Brush.

This foundation has AMAZING coverage. I mean, it’s crazy. It’s also super long wearinng. But don’t worry, I’ll do a full review on it.

 

Now I’m using the Covergirl + Olay concealer for under my eyes.

Now I’m using the Clinique Transparency powder in the lightest shade, which, oddly enough, is number eight. What? 

 

ImageImage

 

 

For bronzer, I’m heading back to that Too Faced Palette to use the Chocolate Soleil Bronzer in the bottom half of the palette.

ImageImage

 

 

To contour my cheeks and nose, I’m using Hoolah Bronzer by benefit, which has an ashier tone.

Image

ImageImage

 

 

Now for blush, I’m taking Sin from my NARS One Night Stand blush Palette, a rose shade with cold flecks, and then I’m using the highlighter from the same palette.

ImageImageImageImage

 

 

Now I’m going to use the NYX butter gloss in Creme Brulee, a peachy nude. Then I’m adding a bit more mascara. And yes, I changed clothes. I don’t like to put my foundation on in the clothes I’ll be wearing for the day, just incase.

All done! I hope you enjoyed this post! Comment any requests, as always, and let me know if you liked it!

Majestic Purple Eye Ft. Disney Jasmine Palette!

Hi lovelies!

Today I wanted to show you how I do this fun purple eye. It looks a bit scary, but the way the colors are blended makes this very wearable and flattering! I’ll show you some tips to make sure you don’t get the “Bruised” effect that some purple eyeshadows can give you. These colors are all from the Disney Sephora Jasmine Palette which I mentioned in my Colors Of The Rainbow Tag! Let’s jump right in.

CORRESPONDING VIDEO: Majestic Purple Makeup!

ImageImage

Okay, so the first step, as always, is primer. For this step I wanted something that would create a blank canvas, so I used the MAC Painterly Paint Pot.

Image

Next, I want to apply a white base to my brow bone, inner corner, and inner three-fourths of my lid to help the purples really pop. For this I’m using the NYX eyeshadow base in white, found at ULTA.

Image

Now blend that out with your finger.

Image

For a browbone highlight, I’m using the color in the palette called “Ali Ababwa”.

Image

Image

For an inner corner highlight, I want to use a bright shimmery shade with a yellow undertone. The yellow will counteract the purple and save your eyes from looking bruised, which can happen with purples if you’re not careful. I’m going to use the color “Sand in the Glass”. I’m using an angled brush for this.

ImageImage

Now it’s time to start with the color. On a flat shader brush, I’m going to take the bright purple in the palette called “Mystical Wonder”. You want to pat, not rub, this color on the eyelid where we applied the white base.

ImageImage

To blend this with the inner corner color, take the brush we used to apply the highlight and pat it lightly over the inner part of the purple.

Image

Now for the crease color. I’m taking the color called “Master” on a MAC 217 brush and putting this in my outer V (The outer corner in a sideways V shape) and through my crease.

ImageImage

As you can see, I’m starting about 1/4 of the cay in at my lash line and dragging the color upward as I move outward.

Image

Now I just put the color through my crease.

BLEND!!!!!

Image

For the lower lash line, I’m starting with the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Asphyxia, a pinkish purple color. Only apply this halfway in.

ImageImageImage

Now with a small brush, I’m taking the darker purple we used and putting that on the outer 1/4 of my eye.

Image

Next apply the lighter purple over the remaining part of the eyeliner.

Image

For the upper lash line, I’m creating a wing with an eyeliner brush and Elf’s cream eyeliner in Black.

Image

To help brighten the eyes a bit more, Take a nude eyeliner, I’m using the Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliner in Nude, and apply this to the inner waterline. (The space between your lashes and eyeball. If you have overly sensitive eyes, skip this step. I have mildly sensitive eyes and it doesn’t bother me at all.)

Image

Add your favorite Mascara! I used the Covergirl Clump Crusher.

Now for the face. For bronzer, I’m using the one that came in the palette. It is a warm golden, shimmery bronze shade. Apply this in the 3 E motion.

Image

I’m also using the rosy pink blush that came in the palette.

Image

Add your favorite nude or peachy lip product and we’re all done! I hope you enjoyed this post! Thank you for reading! As always, Comment and tell me if you’ve tried out any looks and how they’ve worked for you. Feel free to comment any requests!

Top 10 Summer Lip Products!

Hello Lovelies!

Today, I wanted to share with you my TOP 10 Summer Lip products. I know 10 sounds like SO MANY… but it was SO hard to narrow it down this far! Anyway, let’s jump right in!

CORRESPONDING VIDEO: Top 10 Summer Lip Products!

IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER!!

I’m going to start out with my perfect nude: Blankety Lipstick by MAC.

ImageImage

This is a LONG-WEARING nude lipstick with a pink base. This color is perfect for when I just want to grab something and get out the door, yet it is so flattering and completes any look. I love having a pink-based nude, and I think this should be a staple in every collection. $15.00, MAC

Next, I love MAC’s lipstick in Pleasure Seeker.

ImageImage

This is the perfect muted coral, or a coral with a nude base, for summer. It makes your lips pop, but without being TOO obnoxious. I LOVE this shade for summer. $15.00, MAC

Next is my Revlon Lip Butter in Sorbet, which I mentioned in my “Colors of the Rainbow Tag”.

ImageImage

I love the formula of these because they moisturize my lips so well, but I also love this bright pink color. It is wearable, unlike some bright pinks. I’ve been OBSESSED with this! $7.99, ULTA

Next, for a more natural gloss, I love the BUXOM lip gloss in “Dolly”.

ImageImage

This gloss isn’t so long wearing, but it enhances your natural lipcolor beautifully and adds a bit of shine. $10.00, Sephora

Next, I’ve been loving my NYX jumbo lip pencil in “Pink Brown”.

ImageImage

Name aside, this is a beautiful peachy-pink, satin finish, moisturizing lip product. The color is very opaque, which impressed me. I’ve been loving this day-to-day. $4.99, ULTA

Next, is my Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Lip Gloss in D6.

ImageImage

This is a hot pink gloss perfect for when your face needs some perking-up. This color is sheer, but build-able without getting too goopy or sticky. $18.00, Sephora.

Next, my Maybelline BABY LIPS lip balm in “Cherry Me”.

ImageImage

This SUPER moisturizing balm gives a hint of sheer color while making your lips SUPER soft! You really can’t go wrong with any of the BABY LIPS. $3.99, ULTA

Now for the longest wearing product in this post, my MAC PROlongwear lip glass in “Persistent Peach”.

ImageImage

This stuff is the real deal. When they say “PROlongwear”… THEY MEAN IT. This pretty, peachy, opaque gloss had some SERIOUS staying power. I’m talking 5-7 hours… NO JOKE. This is great for the hot summer months and the color is perfect as well. $20.00, MAC

Next, I’ve been loving my Maybelline Color Whisper in “Petal Rebel”.

ImageImage

I feel like these are the Maybelline version of the Revlon Lip Butters, WHICH I LOVE, and this Barbie Pink color is absolutely perfect for summer. $5.99, ULTA

Last, but certainly not least, I’ve been obsessed with the Rimmel lipstick in “Pink Blush”.

ImageImage

These are awesome lipsticks, and I love wearing this pink to match my Stila pink blush. $4.99, ULTA

Those are my top 10 summer lip products! Thank you for reading! Also– don’t forget to check out the corresponding video linked at the beginning of this post!
