Happy Friday! I went to a local cosmetics counter today in Jamaica, NY and got my eyebrows done, as well as purchasing a couple of items! I didn’t buy any eyeshadows today unfortunately, but I got a pretty, dark purple lipstick and a lavender shade lip gloss as well. The name of the cosmetic and skincare line is called Interskin Cosmetics. The shade that I bought in the lipstick is Midnight Passion. It is very similar to MAC Punk Couture, but it is a little darker in color and not as matte. I really do like the color a lot, but to me it is more of a fall/winter lipstick color. However, you can definitely rock this lipstick with some neutral eyes or a bold eye like mine, depending on your taste. (pardon the concealer that wasn’t blended in well on my nose!). Anyway, let me know what u guys think!
Hey, beauties! I felt like doing a gray eyeshadow look today, using a dark, matte gray and a gunmetal eyeshadow from MAC called Knight’s Divine. I used a mauve and brown eyeshadow on my crease from my Tartelette matte palette. I hope u guys like the look and will try it out on yourselves!
Hey beauties! Here is another look for this week that I call, “Bedroom sexy.” For those of you who have been following my blog, you know that I love a lot of shade and drama! (On my eyes, of course 😉 ) I created a dark, grey smoky eye with little hints of orange and a pink/purple shade in the mix. I darkened the crease using a matte black and grey eye shadow combo to achieve this look. I also added some grey pressed pigment on the lid, mixed with a little gold. This look is PERFECT for a date night with your boo or for going out on a date and wanting to go for a sexy look. I used a soft purple lipstick (MAC Up the Amp) on my lips. I’m definitely feeling the dark eyes and drama that this look is giving… it definitely made me feel sexy! Please like this look and comment! Thanks for viewing!!
So, I’ve been using my BH Cosmetics 88 Color Palette of Shimmer Eyeshadows a lot more recently. I didn’t really like this palette at first, because I felt like the eyeshadows weren’t pigmented enough and the texture of these eyeshadows were a bit on the chalky side. After using it a couple of more times, I realized that some of the colors are more pigmented than others in this palette. I mainly explored the green eyeshadows, purple, black and gold eyeshadows so far and I really like these shades. They were pigmented and easy to blend, so I really liked that. I got this palette for $13 from the BH Cosmetics website, and I really feel like this palette is pretty good for its price. It’s great for people who are new to makeup and wanna explore different colors. A pro makeup artist can definitely benefit from this palette as well. Anyway, here are the looks that I came up with from using some of the colors in this palette. Thanks for viewing!
Today’s makeup is dark and edgy, with a pop of color with the blue liner and orange lips. I purchased the Morange lipstick color from MAC a couple of days ago, and just received it in the mail today. It’s a bold, vibrant orange color, that will look good on any skin tone. I think it will especially look good on tanned skin. It’s a great color for the summer, and it’s a change from your standard pink lipstick. MAC was offering free 2nd-day shipping last week, so I took advantage of that.
Here are the products that I used:
MAC Beauty Marked – Used in my crease
MAC Brown Down – Used as a background color for my crease
MAC Blue Brown pigment – Applied on my lids
MAC Morange lipstick
This look was random, I didn’t have a particular idea in my mind. After seeing the end result, it reminded me of a dark, gothic mermaid look with the different shades of green and blue. I added some glitter to the center of the eyes to give it a more feminine touch and a lime green pigment in the inner corner of my eyes. I kept my lips neutral, like I normally do, for the eyes to stand out. If you like green, smoky eyes like I do, this will be a great look to try. I just used the darkest colors on the bottom of my lids and worked my way up into a lighter eyeshadow. I hope you like!
Hey guys! Today, I am posting my makeup from yesterday and today, since I didn’t really get a chance to post anything yesterday. Yesterday’s makeup was a sultry, sexy makeup look that was reminiscent of Kim Kardashian’s makeup. Her makeup artist usually does a deep, smoky eye look on her, so I did a look that was similar but not too over the top. As for today, I did a brown and green eye makeup look, with the green being the focal point on the center of the lids. I added some green and pink glitter to the center of my lids to give it more flare. If you have any questions whatsoever about the products I used or on techniques, please comment below and I will respond to you. Don’t be shy! Enjoy the rest of your night!
Hey guys, I hope you are enjoying this gorgeous Friday! I’m a little under the weather, but I’ll be ok 🙂 Today, I did a dramatic, dark look (my favorite kinda look) that has some color and some glitter to it. This look is perfect for a party, a sexy date, etc. Anyway, I hope you guys like the look!
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean – Applied this all over the lid and blended it out with my finger.
MAC Print – Using a blending brush, I smoothed over the harsh lines from the black base with this color.
NARS Night Breed – Applied this all over the black base with a blending brush to set the black, creamy pencil on my lids.
NARS Strada – Applied to the inner one-third of my eyes with MAC 239 (flat shading brush).
Body Bling Cosmetics pigment in Blue – Applied to the center of my lids with MAC 239 brush.
Dark Green eyeshadow and black matte eyeshadow from Sleek Bad Girl Palette – Using a tapered blending brush, I mixed these two colors and applied it to the Outer V of my lids.
MAC Stars N’ Rockets – I lightly pressed this color over the Strada eyeshadow in the inner one-third of my eyes and swept this color above my crease toward the outer part of my brow.
NARS Night Life – Using a pencil brush, I applied this in the inner corners of my eyes and swept it up toward my brow bone.
NYX Midnight liquid liner – After lining my eyes with a dark pencil, I applied this liquid liner to the outer half of my upper lash line.
NYX Extreme Plum liquid liner – Applied to the inner half of my lower lash line.
NYX Blue Mascara – Combed through my lashes with this blue mascara (very pretty mascara and the blue is not too bright).
NYX Candy glitter in Pink – Applied above my liner on top lash line.
I know I used a lot of products, but that’s what I did to achieve this look. If the look is too dark for you, you can always substitute the darker colors with lighter colors..whatever works for ya! I used a pink lip gloss from NARS called Pillow Talk and a pink blush from Maybelline. Thanks for viewing!
