Cat’s Eye Tutorial

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value”

-Albert Einstein

Hello my lovelies!

Yeesh it’s been a time! I am SO SORRY once again for my delay. My laptop is what I use to upload all of my pictures, and given that it’s been acting up as of late despite my taking it in to have it fixed, I haven’t been able to properly transfer my photos over to a different device up until this morning.

Rest assured, I am planning on adding two additional posts the next two Saturdays to make up for time lost during my laptop snafu. I don’t like to get off schedule much, but keeping up with consistency is also an important part of blogging and I have too many ideas to share with you all to put off doing a little blogging overtime.

I’ve chosen to omit a full tutorial for this look only because you guys have seen a halo eye look with neutral browns a thousand times by this point and likely get the jist of it. Hopefully you’re all good with that, given that I am trying to play catchup this week after all!


That’s all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don’t forget to have a wonderful Wednesday!

Stay beautiful!

Valentine’s Eye Tutorials

“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hello my lovelies!

I apologize for having a late start to this week’s posting once again. My laptop decided to completely crash with all of my photos on it and I therefore had nothing to show you to go along with the actual writing. Everything is back up and running now, my trusty laptop just needed a long overdue spring cleaning.

I know this isn’t the MOST festive Valentine’s look, but to tell you the truth, I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day. I find the holiday to be not only incredibly heteronormative and not LGBTQ+ inclusive, but there is also a lot of single shaming that goes on during Valentine’s Day. I’m totally aware of the supposedly single positive Galentine’s Day, but in my opinion it comes off more as virtue signaling than a genuine celebration of being single. I’m sure I’m over analyzing the entire concept, but I am allowed to feel how I feel and you are all allowed to enjoy or not enjoy the holiday as you please.

You all know by now that I’m a big fan of using my liquid lipsticks as funky eyeliners. I love being able to use makeup as a multipurpose tool, and my lip products are no exception. It saves so much money and opens up numerous color options that you normally wouldn’t have if you had to go out and buy each individual eyeliner color. Why buy new eyeliner when you already own at least 100 different lipsticks?!

Let’s Get Started


The eyelids:

  1. Prime the eyes with a concealer or primer that you prefer.
  2. Warm up the crease with a medium brown shadow.
  3. Deepen the crease with a darker brown shadow, extending from outer to inner corner and toward the brow bone.
  4. Deepen the outer v with a very dark brown shadow to create depth within the look.
  5. Create a dramatic winged liner with a pink eyeliner or liquid lipstick that is eye safe.

Lower Lashline:

  1. Mix the two darker shadows and blend across the entire lower lashline.

Other:

  1. Line the waterline with a nude eyeliner.
  2. Curl and coat the lashes with mascara. Apply falsies if that’s your thing.
  3. Highlight the tear duct with a pink shimmer shadow.

Stay beautiful!

Jade Eye Tutorial

‘The good life is the healthful life, the merry life. Life is health, joy, laughter”

-Jean Bodin

Hello my lovelies!

I know I said we were going to ditch simpler looks for this series, but after the intensity of last week’s eye look, I wanted to take a hot minute to just tone it back slightly. We don’t need any sensory overload on this blog!

I still find green to be a fairly difficult color to work with. I really love the idea and the way it looks, but I also feel that greens can go overboard very quickly. Since I’m still learning to find my comfort level with green shadows, I prefer to keep things fairly tame, but still interesting.

Graphic liner is always a super fun way to incorporate color, so why not throw some green on it. I’m fairly certain that by this point you are all well aware of how to create winged liner, therefore I will not be including a full tutorial. I did decide to line the lashline and outer edge of the jade liner with black eyeliner, just to keep things interesting.

Lapis Lazuli Eye Tutorial

“Peace is not the absence of power, peace is the presence of love”

-Sri Chinmoy

Hello my lovelies!

I hope you are all doing well today. Today’s post will be short and sweet as I’m typing this because I am starting to feel slightly under the weather with a headache, but I wanted to get a post up for you guys nonetheless.

In today’s installment for the gemstone series, I wanted to recreate the look of the precious stone Lapis Lazuli. I love the look of the royal blue stone with veins of gold throughout and it very much caught my attention when I was doing research on precious gems and stones.

While Lapis Lazuli is definitely not a stone that immediately comes to mind when thinking of precious stones, I went in with the intention of choosing something lesser known. Of course I will be including many of the more popular stones in my future looks, but finding the stones that lurk in the background means that gathering inspiration from them presents more of a fun challenge.

Let’s Get Started:


The eyelids:

  1. Prime the eyes with a concealer or primer that you prefer.
  1. Warm and define the crease with a warm toned medium brown.
  1. Pack a royal blue shadow on the inner and outer corners of the lid and blend out slightly. Continue this step until you reach your desired opacity.
  1. Lightly carve out the very center of the lid with concealer, making the top slightly larger than the to create a spotlight effect.

Lower Lashline:

  1. Blend the same blue shadow from earlier across the entire Lower Lashline.
  2. Diffuse the blue shadow further by blending the bottom out with the same brown shadow used previously.

Other:

  1. Curl and coat the lashes with mascara. Apply falsies if you’d like.
  2. Place small cuts of gold leaf below the lower lashline and above the brow, concentrating the majority of the gold leaf at the base of the brow and Lashline (optional).

That’s all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don’t forget to have a fantabulous Friday!

Stay beautiful!

Tanzanite Eye Tutorial

“When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful”

-Eric Thomas

Hello my lovelies!

I think it’s time that we start a new series on this blog. In the spirit of incorporating color back into this dreary weather, I’ve decided to settle on a gemstone series for the next several tutorial posts. I also want to get back into doing more of my creative eye looks, so expect some fun eye looks in the near future!

I almost never incorporate purple into my makeup looks, despite it being my favorite color. Come to think of it, I don’t wear much purple at all in any facet of my life, yet I still consider it my favorite color nonetheless.

I decided to smoke out the purple on the lower lashline to create a happy medium of color and practicality. I want to use more purple, but a purple Smokey eye isn’t a very realistic every day look for my clinic floor days. As I’ve said before, a colorful lower lashline is my absolute favorite way of introducing color to eye looks, and is a great way to include colors that tend to be a little more difficult to work with.

Let’s Get Started:


The Eyelids:

  1. Prime the eyelids with a concealer or primer that you prefer.
  2. Carve out the crease with “Incense” blending from outer to inner corner and toward the brow bone.
  3. Define the outer V with “Volatile” extending slightly toward the crease to create fluidity with the first shadow.
  4. Wet a flat brush and pack “Dazzling” across the first half of the eyelid. Allow to dry completely before blending any harsh edges out.
  5. Redefine the outer V with “Volatile” to replace any color lost by blending out the edges of the lid shadow.

Lower Lashline:

  1. Line the waterline and lower lashline with a purple eyeliner.
  2. Blend out the eyeliner with “Celestial” from inner to outer corner.

Other:

  1. Highlight the tear duct with “Dreamer”
  2. Curl and coat the lashes with mascara. Apply false eyelashes if you’d prefer.

That’s all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don’t forget to have a magical Monday!

Stay beautiful!
