Sultry Valentines Day Makeup + Outfit Ideas ft. Naked 3

Hey guys!

Today I created a look that is perfct for Valentine’s Day using my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I’ve also created a hair idea and two outfit ideas!

Let’s jump right in.

ImageImageImageImage

To start off, I’m filling in my brows with the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in Blonde. 

ImageImageImage

 

Next, I’m going to prime my eyes with MAC’s Painterly Paint Pot. This is going to give me a blank canvas to work with.

ImageImage

 

Now, as always, I’m adding a white cream shadow under my brow and in my inner corners. Just blend that with your ring finger.Image

 

Now I’m going to take a fluffy angled brush and Strange from the Naked 3 and highlight both of those areas.

ImageImage

 

Now with a fluffy blending brush, I’m going to softly define the crease with Nooner

 

ImageImageImage

 

Now with a flat shader brush, I’m taking Darkside, a deep rosy-gray, and packing this on my lid.

 

ImageImageImageImage

 

To brighten up and smoke-out the lid, I’m going to pat a bit of a lighter shimmery rose on the center area.ImageImageImage

 

Now, in the very center, I’m going to pat a bright glittery rose just to add some dimension.

 

ImageImageImageImage

 

 

Now i’m going to blend the outer edges of the gray with a bronze-y rose, extending it and blending through the crease. You want an ombre effect throughout the crease, but don’t add too much color.ImageImage

 

To further blend these colors, I’m going to blend it out with a deeper matte rose.

ImageImage

 

Now, to deepen the outer V, I’m going to take Blackheart, a black with rose glitter, and place, then blend, this in my outer corner.ImageImageImageImageImage

 

 

Now I’m taking the bronze shade we used earlier and smudge that on my lower lashline

Image

 

ImageImage

 

 

I added some individual lashes for some added drama. Apply LOTS of black mascara.

ImageImage

 

For the face, I’m starting with the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, then using the Kat Von D Lock it Tattoo Foundation.ImageImageImageImageImageImage

 

For Bronzer, I’m going to use a cream for an extra glow. I love the Soliel Tan De Chanel for this.

ImageImageImageImageImage

 

 

For blush, I’m going to use the Maybelline Master Glaze cream in number 10

ImageImageImage

 

 

To set everything, I’m using the new Urban Decay Naked Skin Powder in Naked Light

 

ImageImageImageImage

 

 

For a highlight I’m going to use the Urban Decay Naked highlighter.

ImageImageImage

 

 

For lips, I’m going to mix the Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Sorbet and Too Faced lipstick in Marshmallow PinkImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

 

All done with the Makeup!

ImageImage

 

 

I french braided my bangs and the back of my hair into a low ponytail and added a black satin bow.ImageImage

 

Now for the outfits.

The first idea is more of a date outfit.

I chose this deep red dress with black polka dots from belk over some black leggings. I’m wearing These black low-heel boots and a Jean Jacket over top, due to the weather.ImageImage

 

 

Now an outfit for those who have to work on Valentine’s Day. AKA ME.

ImageImageImage

 

I changed out the dress for this long flowy purple top from Free People. I also switched out the boots for some Sanuks in a tribal print. Cute, yet comfortable.

 

I hope this helped if you were in a “Heart-Day Rut” or just needed some ideas! Let me know if you try this out! Thanks for reading, an Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

xoxo,

Pres

Celebrity Saturday 3- Jennifer Lawrence Makeup!

Hi lovelies!

ImageImage

For my third Celeb Saturday, I decided to recreate J-Law’s iconic smokey bronze makeup. I think she’s hilarious and I love her makeup! This look is SUPER SUPER simple and quick! Let’s jump right in!

CORRESPONDING VIDEO:Celeb Saturday 3- Jennifer Lawrence Makeup!

Okay, to begin, I primed my eyes with wet’n wild’s Fergie eyeshadow primer. Any translucent primer or base will do.

Image

Next, from my Naked2 palette, I’m going to take Foxy on an angled brush and apply that to my browbone. Any Matte color that matches your skin tone will do.

Image

Next, I’m going to take that same brush with L’Oreal’s infalliable eyeshadow in Iced Latte and pop that in my inner corner.

ImageImage

This next step is completely optional, but for some added smokiness at my lashline, I’m taking Maybelline’s color tattoo in Bad To The Bronze, and just smudging that on my lashline with my finger.

ImageImage

Next, to bronze up the lid, I’m taking MAC’s Elite eyeshadow on a 239 brush and patting this on the inner 3/4 of my lid.

ImageImage

Now on the same brush, I’m taking MAC’s Woodwinked eyeshadow and patting this in my outer corner and roughly through my crease. This color is just a bit darker than Elite.

ImageImage

I also smudged that color on my lower lashline.

Now, I’m blending that crease color with my Sigma blending brush.

Image

Now with Milani’s eyeshadow in Java Bean and my MAC 217 brush, I’m going to deepen my crease a bit more.

ImageImage

Now deepen the lower lashline with a matte black.

Image

Line your upper lashline just as you would normally, with no wing.

Image

Take a small brush and a matte black and just smoke out the liner slightly.

Image

Mascara Time! I’m using MAC’s extra dimension lash in black, a new one I’m testing, but use whichever is your favorite. Covergirl Clump Crusher would be great.

Image

Now You’re done! Add some bronzer and a peachy blush to create your Jennifer Lawrence look!

Thank you for reading! Remember to ALWAYS comment requests for future posts.

Empties! Products I’ve Used Up&Thoughts

Hi Guys!

Sorry I’ve been absent lately, I’ve been one busy girl!

Today I thought I’d share with you the products I’ve used up in the past month and my thoughts on these products. Keep in mind, I’ve repurchased some of these products and will be showing you the new ones because I’ve already tossed the old. Let’s jump right in!

CORRESPONDING VIDEO: Empties! Products I’ve Used Up

The first product I’ve used up is my Clinique Acne Solutions Foundation.

Image

I’ve used numerous tubes of this product and will continue to repurchase it. It makes my skin have a flawless airbrushed look, doesn’t cake up of feel heavy, and treats my acne. Definitely my favorite foundation.

$23.00, Clinique

Next, is my Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Zephyr.

Image

This is a bright white shimmery color with a hint of gold. This is my go-to inner corner shade when I want to brighten up my eyes. I truly love the formula of the Urban Decay eyeshadows, and this color is definitely one of my favorites. I’m starting on my 3rd one!

$18.00, Urban Decay

Next, to no surprise, is my NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencil in Milk.

Image

This is just a white cream shadow that I use EVERY SINGLE DAY in my inner corner and under my eyebrow before applying a shadow, but after a primer. This color is perfect for brightening up the eyes and creating a subtle highlight. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

$5.00, Ulta

Next, I sort of have two things in one. First of all, I used up my ENTIRE Urban Decay Naked Palette. The first one. But also, the first color to go in my second palette is the color “Virgin”.

ImageImage

First of all, I cannot thank my aunt ENOUGH for getting me the Naked palette a few years ago. THANK YOU AUNTIE ANN!!!  I have a love affair with this palette. The colors are perfect to create anything from a natural daytime eye, to a deep dark smokey eye. Hopefully my using up and entire palette is an indication of just how much I love this palette. And the color virgin, second picture far left eyeshadow, is always the first one to be used. It is a light peachy white shimmery highlighting shade that suits any skin tone and just gives a natural glow. If I don’t stop raving over this palette now, I’ll never stop.

$50.00, Sephora (pricey but SO SO SO worth it!!)

Next, is my Clinique True Bronze Bronzer in 02.

Image

Love Love LOVE this bronzer for getting a nice sunkissed glow without looking fake-orange. It’s just the perfect bronzer for me.

$25.00, Clinique

Next is the L’Oreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense. Regardless of not knowing how to pronounce it’s full name, I used the product up! haha

Image

It is what it claims to be: a carbon black liquid liner. I love this eyeliner, do not get me wrong, but I do not see myself repurchasing this in the future due to the fact that I have found my true eyeliner love: L’Oreal the Super Slim liquid eyeliner. While I did enjoy using the Lineur Intense, It is a bit watery and harder to create a precise line.

$7.00, Ulta

Next is my true love in eyeliner form, as mentioned above, the L’Oreal the Super Slin Liquid Eyeliner in Black.

Image

This product is like a marker, and is the easiest liner i’ve ever applied. Rich, dark color and super staying power. Need I say more?

$8.99, Ulta

Next is Clinique’s eyeshadow in Lucky Penny.

Image

This was one of the first eyeshadows I ever used, and still one of my favorites. It’s pretty taupe-y bronze shimmer creates a natural, yet polished look all on it’s own. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE L-O-V-E LOVE.

$15.00, Clinique

Next, I have my Cover Fx Clear Prep Anti-Acne Primer.

Image

This face primer applies warm, which I’m not a huge fan of, but I feel like it didn’t effect my acne enough for the price. While it was a good primer, my Smashbox Photo Finish Light controls my oil better and seems to be longer lasting.

Clear Prep: $38.00, Sephora

Next is my MAC blotting powder.

Image

It is exactly what it claims to be: a translucent blotting powder that controls my oil. Love this.

$24.00, MAC

Next is my MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer

Image

Although opaque, I felt like the consistency of this concealer was a bit too heavy and oily for my skin. I’m sure it would be great on drier skins, but for me, I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing this product.

$25.00, MAC

And that is it for my Empties! I hope you enjoyed it! Thank you SO SO SO much for reading.
