 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.
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
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
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!
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!

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!

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.

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!
