Copenhagen


 Hello! Once again I am back months later with another blog update. Today was a rainy day and this look just seemed to fit my mood. Personally, I love rainy days and I love dark makeup so it was a good excuse to wear this look. I was also inspired by a makeup artist on Youtube and Instagram her name is Samantha and she is awesome! You guys should definitely check her out. Her name on instagram is SSSSamanthaa. Anyway, enjoy!

 
So don't mind my shirt, I don't know why my camera made it look that way.
 
 
So for my eyes, I just bought these lashes by House Of Lashes, and I have been trying them out everyday because I'm just so excited about them. I bought I couple different ones. But the ones I'm wearing today are in the style 'Temptress". Clearly they are very bold and long and full, but I love them and they just went with this look so well. Anyway, for the lid I used the Lorac Pro Pallet. I used the color Mauve on the lid, and Espresso and Sable in the crease. For the crease I did exaggerate my eye shape to give it that elongated look. I put these same two colors on my lower lash line and for the inner corner I used "Strange" from the Naked 3 pallet. For mascara I used the Lights camera lashes by Tarte and the Clinique bottom lash mascara, which I have been Loving! And lastly, for eyeliner I used Glam eye professional liquid liner by Rimmel.


 
So these are the products I used on my face:
Foundation: Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo in M 62
Concealer: Maybelline Fit me in 25 medium to highlight and conceal
Powder: To lock everything in I used the elf high def. powder (translucent powder)
Contour/Highlight: For the contour shade I used the Anastasia Contour kit which is by all means Amaaaaazing. I used the shade Java. And to set the under eye highlight I used the shade Banana.
Primer: Benefit PORE'fessional

 
And these are the products I used on my eyes:
Primer: UD Primer potion in Original
Shadow: Lorac Pro pallet in the shades, Mauve, Sabel and Espresso
Mascara (top/lower): Tarte Lights camera lashes and Clinique Bottom lash mascara
Liner: Glam Eyes by Rimmel
Lash adhesive: House of lashes adhesive


 
Today I decided to change it up with my brows and use Brun instead of my Anastasia Powder duo. It works just as good and retails for $15 if you don't want to spend $21, I believe it is, for the Anastasia powder. I'm not saying this is a dupe for it, but it gives you nice natural definition for the brows.

 
And lastly the Lips. My favorite part. I used the NYX Soft matte Lip Cream in "Copenhagen" and I sure do love it. The lip liner is in Plum, also by NYX and the two are wonderful together!!! I will say that the Soft matte lip cream does tend to dry out my lips throughout the day. And don't you let it get there because it is not at all subtle. Your lips will look like they have never seen chapstick. But a wonderful color none the less.
 
I hope you have enjoyed this look and learned something new. Have a great day!

Black Heart

 Hello everyone, I know I haven't posted in a while but I haven't really been feeling too inspired. But I just got the Naked 3 pallet and I knew I had to post something! Enjoy
 
I will list the products below.
 
 
FACE:
Foundation - L'Oreal True match in W-4.5
Concealer - Maybelline Dream Lumi in Nude Chair. And I set that with MAC MSF in Medium Plus
Primer - Benefit PORE'fessional
Bronzer/Contour - I used a combination of NARS Matte Multiple in Vientiane and MAC MSF in Give me sun
Blush - MAC in Coygirl
 
 
 
EYES:
I only used one pallet for this look which is the Naked 3 pallet! I love it, I think it's definitely worth the $52, as it should be! Anyway, I started with Nooner as a transition color but also to define the Crease a bit. Then I went in with BlackHeart to further intensify the crease. And for the Lid I sprayed Buzz with FixPlus to make it pop. Then for Eyeliner I used #77 by Inglot and I cannot say enough good things about this guy. It is the blackest liner I have ever used and super affordable! And lastly for Mascara I used MAC Haute and naughty and for the lower lash line I used Power Volume by L'Oreal which I must say, sucks. It's clumpy and not at all volumizing, it's just poop to say the least. Lol
 
 
EYEBROWS:
For my brows I've been using the Anastasia Brow powder duo in Granite and I have been loving it! It is the perfect color for people with black hair and it is the color I have been looking for because all the ones I had used previously were too light! But if you're looking for a good brow powder Anastasia is the way to go!
 
 
LIPS:
Lip Liner - NYX Plush Red
Lip Stick - MAC Relentlessly Red
Now I will say I don't think this lipstick is worth buying. It's super drying which I knew when I bought it, but I mean seriously. If you're not careful it will make your lips look like they have never seen chapstick a day in their life. But it is a beautiful color!

 I hope you guys enjoyed this look!

Shameless

Hello again and welcome to my blog! Today I went with a gold and purple combo and I know I may have done something similar in the past, however this time I paired it with a purple lipstick by Revlon. I am loving this color lately. I find myself reaching for a lot of dark plum colors so this is a nice change for once. And I used the same products as usual for my skin, so if you'd like to know what I used you can check out some of my other posts!
 

Lips:
                          
 
Here is a swatch of Revlon's new color burst lipsticks in Shameless. I absolutely LOVE this color. It's really creamy and it's pretty long lasting. It actually reminds me of Heroine Lipstick by MAC.


EYES:
 
So below is a picture of the pallets I used for this look. The Lorac Pro Pallet and the Urban Decay NYC Pallet.


The colors I used are named from left to right and the steps I took to get this look:
Last Call (UD) I used this under Rockstar more as a transition color so you won't really notice it but it works perfectly because the two purple tones compliment eachother nicely.
Rockstar (UD) I used this darker plum color to define the outer crease. Usually I would use a matte color but using a shimmery color once in a while is a nice change.
Gold (Lorac) This color I used all over the lid. At first when I saw this color it didn't really stand out to me, especially since I have so many golds. But it really is a beautiful color. It's definitely a different gold than I usually use because it's true to its color. Meaning it really is a gold color, it's not pale or rosy it's straight up GOLD. So I really liked the way the three colors complimented eachother. And I especially love how they look with the bold Purple lip.
 

 
So, as usual I hope you enjoyed this look!

Uninterrupted

Hello again! I know I know it's been forever sorry BUT I just got a new camera so I'm pretty excited. So yeah, I've actually been doing looks like this pretty often lately and I've been liking it a lot. It gives just enough definition to the eyes. Hope you like it as much as I do!
 
So first I applied Uninterrupted eyeshadow by MAC. This color is just...ugh it is SO pretty! I honestly think it is the perfect transition color of life! It really just ties together any look!
Next, I applied the lid color which is actually a pale rose gold color from my Sephora pallet!
After I applied a deep purple color from my Beloved Lorac Pro pallet, which is actually called "Deep Purple" and after that I applied the Lorac Front of the line pro liner I believe is what it's called.
And lastly I applied Haute and Naughty lash mascara by MAC and applied Red Cherry lashes in #46. It sounds like a lot of steps but honestly it is so simple! Below I will list the products used.
 
 
 
 
 
Top: Naked Illuminated (UD) , Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation, MAC Prolong wear concealer, Lorac Pro Pallet
Bottom: MAC Give me sun bronzer, MAC Melba blush and lastly NARS Translucent Crystal setting powder
I actually put the highlighting powder afterwards and forgot to take a picture with it on..sorry lol I will definitely wear it in my next post.


 
And here is a close up of Uninterrupted eye shadow by MAC. You guys need this bad boy in your life!
 
 
So this is the look that I have been reaching for, I hope you guys enjoyed it! As always, if you have any questions or requests leave them below.

Fall Trend Series | Dark Eyes Dark Lips

So I know I've been MIA lately but I just started working and I haven't had the time so I'm sorry about that. I will try to get at least one blog post up a week.
 
Today I went with dark eye shadow and a dark lip, something I'm not really used to doing but I really liked how it looked. It's something different and I think it's a look you can wear in the day or night!
 
 
So on my eyes I used the Urban Decay pallet and to be honest I'm not really sure what the name of it is, sorry about that. I'll try to find out for you. But from this pallet I used the color Half Truth all over my eyelid and in the crease I used M.I.A. Pretty simple and then after I used Maybelline's Gel Liner and Clump Crusher mascara by Cover Girl.
 

 
 
 Left to Right: Kat Von D foundation in 62, MAC Prolong wear concealer in NW30, To be honest I'm not really sure what the name of this pallet is but I will try my best to find out for you, Clump Crusher by Cover Girl, Give me Sun by MAC, Melba Blush by MAC and in the front Vino Lip Liner and Ruby Woo both by MAC.
 
Here's swatches of Vino Lip Liner (top) and Ruby Woo (bottom)
 
So like I said before I apologize for not having posted anything for over a month, but hopefully I'm able to get back on track. If you have any questions please feel free to leave them below and I will do my best to answer them. I hope to have a review on my new Kat Von D foundation up some time next week!

Girls day!

So like I said, we had a girls/makeup day on Sunday and it was really fun we got to hang out pig out and watch chick flicks! Obviously that alone sounds like a good time. But I also got to do some makeup which made it even better. So below you'll find pictures of makeup that I did on some of the girls. I apologize that I didn't take pictures of the products but there was so much going on that I forgot to. So anyway I'll start with Beronica.
 
For her foundation I used Revlon's Photo Ready in Golden Beige
MAC Prep and Prime in Light Boost as her highlight
And Dainty Blush also by MAC
For her eyebrows I used Cork by MAC
And for her eyes I used:
Motif by MAC on her lid
Plum Dressing by MAC as a transition shade
And Signed Seal also by MAC in her crease and this color is SO pretty, it has purple undertones but at first sight it looks like a brown/black shade.
For liner I used Penultimate eye liner by MAC
And for mascara I used Maybelline the falsies
 
 
 
For Leslie's foundation I also used Revlon's Photo Ready in Golden Beige
Dainty Blush by MAC
EYES:
Parfait Amour by MAC on her lid
And in her Crease I used a little bit of Espresso by MAC
For liner I used the Maybelline Gel liner in Blackest Black
And for Mascara I used Maybelline's the Falsies
And my favorite part of this look are the lips! I used Russian Red by MAC
I love this look, I think it adds the right amount of color to your look and it's a little different for when you're feeling a little bit more edgy.
 

For my sister, Marilu, the main focus of this look was the eyes as it was for most of these looks but for her I really wanted to a lot of color!
For foundation I used the Hello Flawless by Benefit in Toasted Beige
Concealer: Maybelline age rewind in Neutralizer
Blush in Dainty by MAC
EYES:
MAC Deep truth on the lid
MAC Plum Dressing as her Transition color
MAC Beauty Marked to deepen the crease a bit
And MAC GoldMine in the inner corner
For liner I used the Maybelline Gel liner in Blackest Black
And for mascara I used Maybelline's the Falsies



So for Jessica, we've been trying to do a smokey eye since forever! So we decided to do just that.
For foundation I used NARS Sheer Glow in Tahoe
Concealer: MAC prolong wear
EYES:
MAC Scene on her lid
MAC signed seal on her crease
MAC Parfait Amour for the inner corner
MAC Penultimate Liner in black
Maybelline the Falsies



I hope you enjoyed these looks as much as I enjoyed creating them. I'm happy with the way they came out and hopefully next time I'll have had a little bit more practice for them to look even more glamorous! Also if you have any looks you think I should try just leave it in the comments below and I will try to recreate them! Until next time, take care!

Natural shadow with a bold lip

                                                              
Sooo, I guess the next look I did was not colorful Lol sorry today just seemed like a nice day to do something natural. My skin looked good and I don't know when I have good skin days I like to go pretty natural lol
 
 
Products Used:
NARS Sheer Glow in Tahoe
Maybelline age rewind concealer in Neutralizer
Dainty Blush by MAC (MSF)
Texture eye shadow MAC as my bronzer
EYES:
Soba by MAC on my entire eyelid it's actually an interesting color because as you blend it out it turns a bit darker but in the right places! I like it, it looks like I used a darker color in the crease! It's less work so it takes less time
For mascara I used loads of BadGal lash by Benefit
And lastly I used blackout eye shadow from my UD2 pallet as liner, since I was going for a soft natural look I didn't want to use a harsh eye liner.
And for my brows I just used a light brownish gray color from my Sephora Pallet
 
 
For my lips I used this lip color from E.L.F cosmetics and it is a great color for a great price, it was only 3 bucks! I absolutely love this Red, if you ever want to find an alternative to all the expensive red lipsticks out there I would totally check this out. It's very moisturizing and the color is very rich and vibrant. But at the same time it isn't so bold that you feel like it's too much for daytime, Nope! I'm the type of person that when I wear a bold lip I'm constantly trying to take it off throughout the day simply because I'm not used to it. But honestly I feel very comfortable wearing this color and I've been loving it this summer.
 
 
 So I wanted to get a good picture of the blush I used buuut as usual my camera does it no justice. I have been loving this blush from MAC called Dainty and it's one of their mineralize skin finish blushes. So it gives you that nice glow without all the extra sparkle because like I've said before I don't like using too much shimmer because I feel like it brings out my acne and that is not cool. So this blush gives you that perfect summer glow with the right amount of color!
 
 
So thank you for taking the time out of your day to check this out, I hope you enjoyed todays look I will try to get another one up soon! Have a wonderful day!
