Rainbow Pride: Blue

Hello my lovelies!

 

BlueRainbowFace
Still not naked

This is looking a little crazy, but while sitting at my desk trying to figure out how to make blue wearable, I thought to myself “does anyone REALLY wear blue eye shadow on the daily?” So instead, I channeled my inner drag queen and went the hell out.

 

BlueRainbowEyes

 

This look is perfect for a sunny barbecue or a family photo, clearly very neutral.

 

But really, if you want to wear this while doing your Target run, who am I to tell you no? Also, what do all of you think of the L’oreal Total Cover foundation? I’ve got mixed feelings about it, but I sometimes feel like it makes me look a little crusty. Let a bitch know what you think.

 

Let’s get started:

 

 

Eyelids:

  1. Prime and set the lids with a bone colored shadow, or anything that works with your skin tone.
  2. Blow out “Safe Word” through the crease and onto the brow bone for a smooth transition shade.
  3. Blend “Poison” over “Safe Word”. Blues can be a little more difficult to blend, so take your time blending this out properly.
  4. Place shadow three directly into the deepest part of the crease for added definition. Don’t worry about packing this shade for opacity, since this look is not meant to be cobalt.
  5. Blend “Swallow” in to the lowest and outermost part of the crease, as well as the outer corner. Pull this shadow into a pointed shape on the outer corner for extra drama. Again, take your time with blending. Much like a black smokey eye, this will start out looking like an unfortunate black eye, but I promise it’ll come together.
  6. Wet a brush and take shadow five “Mermaid” onto the entire lid, all the way into the crease and brow bone area. Take a clean fluffy brush and blend out the edges AFTER this shadow has dried.

Lashline:

  1. Mix “Poison” and “Swallow” together and blend from outer to inner corner of  the lashline, concentrating most of the pigment onto the outer corner. Connect this shadow to the lid as well.
  2. Pack “Mermaid” from the inner corner of the eye to about halfway.
  3. Line the waterline with a blue liner. I chose a darker blue liner for a little more contrast.

Other:

  1. Highlight the tear duct with any white highlighting shade. I used the same one for my face.
  2. Curl and coat your lashes with mascara, apply falsies if you’d like.

 

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 an amazing Saturday.

 

Stay beautiful!

Purple Mock Cut Crease Eye Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

 

PurpleMockCutCreaseFace

 

I don’t know about you, but I love the look of the cut crease trend all over Instagram. I think that if done well, they’re incredibly clean and look amazing on almost any eye shape. Unfortunately, I was blessed with a serious lack of space between my brow bone and crease, so I don’t think a true cut crease will ever be in the cards for me. Also, they take SO MUCH EFFORT! I’m all about creating looks that are achievable for anyone, regardless of talent level, and while I have the ability to do a cut crease, a large majority of people don’t.

 

PurpleMockCutCreaseEyes

 

Insert: The mock cut crease. I think the biggest trick to achieving this is very precisely winging out the shadows, and placing them a little higher in your crease than normal. Personally, I like to get all messy with my outer corners, so that I’m not worried about intricate blending on the lids. I always do my eyes before my base, which makes creating the wing very easy; I just clean up any mess with foundation. My absolute favorite color is purple. I’ve had purple hair, purple nails, purple accessories, purple clothes, you name it, I probably own it in purple. I’m still holding out for a purple Iphone though, Apple, get with my program.

 

Let’s get started:

Eyelids:

  1. Prime and set the eyelids with the first shadow. A light shadow like this will help all the colors stand out even more. Always adjust based on your skin tone, or what you prefer.
  2. Mix shadows two and three, and blend into the uppermost part of the crease. Start to create a winged shape at the end.
  3. I borrowed the shade “Androgyny” from my JSC Androgyny palette, and blended that slightly lower into the crease and the outer corner, still following the winged shape.
  4. Focus shadow four onto the outer corner of the lid, and deepen the wing. Unlike most cut creases, we will not be dragging this into the crease, but you can if you want to. The reason I’m not doing this? I don’t want to have to carve out my crease with concealer.
  5. Take the first shadow and Pack onto the inner half of the eyelid. Clean up any messy blending that dragged downward from the crease.
  6. Using any black liner, create a thin bar across the lashline. You can totally wing this out with the shadow as well, but as I’ve discussed before, black wings aren’t really my thing.

Lower Lashline:

  1. Mix “Androgyny” and the fourth shade of this palette, and blend it 3/4 of the way to the inner corner.
  2. Tuck the first shade onto the inner corner and tear duct for a matte brightness. If you prefer a shimmery highlight, you are more than welcome to do so.

Other:

  1. Place a nude or white liner onto the waterline to add brightness and open the eyes.
  2. Curl and coat your lashes, apply falsies if that’s your thing.

Golden Halo Eye Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

 

YellowGoldHaloFace

 

It’s 1pm my time, and I’m sitting here finally drinking my morning coffee. Yeah, it’s been that kind of day so far. Today’s tutorial is on a look I wore to a nicer evening dinner with friends, but as always you can really wear this whenever you feel like it.

 

YellowGoldHaloEyes

 

Unfortunately, I have to repeat myself once again in a separate blog post for all the people in the back, and this time I’m going to have to be a little meaner about it. I won’t lie to you, I really couldn’t care less what everyone thinks of the products I do or don’t use, because this is not your blog. I am not forcing any of you to look at my posts, and you have the ability to unfollow me if this is such a problem for you personally. If these borderline harassing emails continue, I will be forced to always moderate comments, and remove those of you who have been emailing me constantly about this. The behavior is completely inappropriate at this rate, and I’m not going to waste more time saying the same thing over and over. Consider this your warning.

Back to happiness, I’m sorry to those of you who are not the culprits of this mess, and are just incidentally along for the dramacoaster ride. That lecture is not meant for you, so please don’t worry and feel that it is aimed at every one of you.

 

Let’s get started:

Eyelids:

  1. Prime and set the lids with a bone colored shadow, or anything matching your skintone.
  2. Mixing “Lula” and “Isabel”, blend these throughout the crease and slightly onto the brow bone. The further toward the inner corner you blend these shadows, the more dramatic this look will become, which is exactly what I wanted.
  3. Pack “Violeta” on the inner and outer corners of the lid, blending out the edges away from the middle. If you’re messy like me, you can always use concealer to clean up the middle, so that the gold shade still pops. We don’t want any muddiness happening, or the shimmer looking dull.
  4. If this is looking pretty insane so far, relax, everything will work out. Halfway through, I almost thought about not posting this and starting over, because I looked like I had black eyes, but once I was finished, it came out great. Halo eyes require a lot of time and detail, so the key is a lot of patience.
  5. Wet a brush and pack “Marina” on the center of the eyelid. I prefer the look to have the shimmer packed all the way into the crease, but this is ultimately up to you.
  6. Use “Violeta” once again to blend out any harsh edges from “Marina”. WAIT UNTIL THE WET SHADOW HAS DRIED, or you will be spreading the shimmer everywhere and letting it dry that way.

Lower Lashline:

  1. Blend “Lula” and “Isabel” across the entire lower lashline to create a transition.
  2. Place “Marina” in the middle of the lashline to emulate what we have on the lids.

Other:

  1. Place “5th Ave” on the inner tear duct for a highlighted effect.
  2. Use a nude liner on the waterline. You can always use whatever color you want, but just know that a dark liner closes the eyes, and a light liner will open. This all just depends on your eye shape.
  3. Curl and coat your lashes, apply falsies 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 lovely summer Wednesday.

 

Stay beautiful!

Fairytale Forest Eyeshadow

Hello my lovelies!

 

MagicalForestFace

 

I went a little crazy once again, but I was really feeling something green. I was mostly inspired by the army green color in the Jeffree Star Androgyny palette, but I needed a few more similar colors, and ended up finding the NYX Perfect Filter Shadow Palette in Olive You.

 

MagicalforestEyes

 

For whatever reason, my eyeshadow looks lighter on one side than the other, but after constantly going over it again and checking in natural light, I deduced that they are, in fact, the same, so I’m going to blame that weirdness on my camera and time of day. Regardless, I do not feel that this is a reflection on pigmentation of either palette, because as I said, the eyes look exactly the same in natural lighting, and that’s what really matters to me.

 

Let’s get started:

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

Eyelids:

  1. Prime and set with any skin color shadow.
  2. With shadow one, blend throughout the crease and close to the brow bone for a smooth transition shade.
  3. Blend “Safe Word” through the entire crease for some definition.
  4. Place “Military” slightly lower into the crease and blend once again. This look is mostly a bunch of blending colors together, so be patient.
  5. Pack shadow four onto the outer V of the lid, as well as into the lowest part of the crease, about halfway.
  6. Wet a brush and place shadow five onto the middle of the lid, fusing into the outer corner shade.
  7. Wet the brush once again and place shadow six onto the inner corner, blending in with the middle shade.
  8. Blend out any harsh edges with “Safe Word”.

Lower Lashline:

  1. Mix the first shade of the NYX palette and “Safe Word” and blend all across the lashline.
  2. Mix “Military” and shade four of the NYX Palette, blending onto the outer corner and connecting to the top outer corner.
  3. Place shadow six onto the inner corner and tear duct for some brightness.

Other:

  1. Line the waterline with a nude or white eyeliner.
  2. Curl and coat your lashes, apply falsies if you’d prefer.

Copper Liner Eyes

Hello my lovelies!

 

CopperLinerFace

 

Today’s look is super simple, but is definitely still quite noticeable. I’m not much of a standard black wing kind of person, but I absolutely love colorful wings, as well as much more subtle brown wings, very similar to the one I have here.

 

CopperLinerEyes

 

If you’re like me and just not very good at doing winged eyeliner, I find it best to use an eye pencil to get the job done. I really love using the Colourpop creme gel liners to do wings, as they are a much smaller twist-up-pencil, which makes creating precise lines much easier. It may take a little more work to finesse the liner in such a way that it could fool anyone into thinking you used liquid or gel liner, but I think the effort is worth it.

 

Let’s get started:

 

Eyelids:

  1. I did not actually use any eyeshadow palette, since I wanted the focus to be on the copper eyeliner.
  2. Place your favorite bronzer into the crease of the eye, and blend out to create some definition. It is best to blend the shadow on the outer corners in the direction that your wing will also go.
  3. Wash the same bronzer all over the lid to create some color.
  4. With any copper colored eyeliner, create a sharp, mildly thick wing on both eyes.

Lower Lashline:

  1. Using the same bronzer, lightly define the entire lower lashline.
  2. Place a flesh toned eyeliner into the waterline, to create a more awake effect.

Other:

  1. Place a highlighter of your choice, preferably gold toned, into the inner tear duct of the eye for some brightness.
  2. Curl and coat your lashes, apply falsies if you prefer.
  3. Side note: This look would also be beautiful with a brown mascara, however I do not currently own one, so black was my only option.

 

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 lovely Monday.

Cool Toned Purples Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

 

CoolTonedPurpleFace

 

Because I am really pressed for time at this moment, I am going to make this introductory paragraph short and sweet by simply saying that I am FEELING MYSELF with this makeup look. I used two of the new Jeffree Star x Mannymua733 collab items with this look, one being the liquid lip “Daddy” and the highlighter “Eclipse”. I’ve never used a JSC highlighter before, and I must say, it’s glowing! I look like I have a purplish disco ball radiating from my cheekbones, and I’m not mad about it.

 

CoolTonedPurpleEyes

 

Let’s get started:

Eyelids:

  1. Prime the eyelids and set with a powder. I will be using only two eyeshadow brushes for this entire look, so be sure to wipe the first one off in between when you can.
  2. With a fluffy blending brush, blend “Cozy Grey” throughout the crease as the transition shade between the shimmers.
  3. Wet a synthetic shader brush with “Sweet Allure” and pack onto the inner third of the eyelid. Blend this slightly into the middle to start the ombre effect.
  4. On the same wet brush, Pack “sun Tweaked” onto the middle of the eyelid, blending into the first shadow, and extending slightly into the outer third.
  5. Same wet brush again, pack “After Dusk” on the outer third of the lid, blending in with the middle shade.
  6. With the same fluffy brush from earlier, blend out any harsh edges that the shimmer shadows may have created.

Lower Lashline:

1. Repeat steps 3, 4, and 5 on the lower lashline. That easy!

Other:

  1. Line the waterline with either a white or nude colored liner.
  2. Curl and coat the lashes with mascara. I wanted a slightly more editorial look, so I would suggest no lashes in order to achieve this.

Wearing The Unwearable

Wearing The Unwearable: Pink Eyeshadow Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

 

wearingtheunwearablepinkface

 

I’ve decided to add yet another new category to my blogging, and I’m going to call it Wearing The Unwearable. My plan for this category is to address makeup and fashion ideas that are generally viewed as “unwearable”, and converting them to be appropriate for everyday looks.

 

WearingTheUnwearablePinkEyes.jpg

 

For the first installment, I chose to feature pink eyeshadow. When I browse through Instagram, I admittedly see a lot of pink eyeshadow creations. What I don’t see, is something that people would reasonably wear throughout their daily lives. Realistically, we aren’t all going to wear hot pink glitter on our lids and a hot pink eyeliner, and that’s totally ok!

Let’s get started:

3605971071492_gwenstefani_eyeshadow_palette_alt1
Photo Via Urban Decay
  1. Prime the eyelids and set ONLY the brow bone and crease. We will be using a cream shadow on the lid to start.
  2. With any pink based cream shadow (in my case, Maybelline Color Tattoo “Inked In Pink), cover the entire lid with an even layer. This pink cream shadow is going to amplify the actual pink powder shadow that we will be using later.
  3. Blend “Zone” throughout the entire crease, blending any harsh edges from the cream shadow along the way.
  4. Pack “Harajuku” all over the lid where we placed the cream shadow. This will “set” the cream as well.
  5. Blend a VERY small amount of “Blackout” on the outer corner and slightly into the crease. If you’re wearing this at nighttime specifically, then go ham, but I planned this look with daytime in mind.
  6. Blend out any harsh edges left behind by your shadow placements.
  7. On the lower lashline, drag “Zone” about halfway from the outer corner. Place a dab of “Blackout” on the outer corner only, and connect to the top lid.
  8. Line the waterline with a brightening liner of your choice.
  9. Curl and coat your lashes, apply falsies if you’d like.

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 lovely weekend.

Brown Smokey Glitter Eye Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

 

brownsmokeyglitterface

 

brownsmokeyglittereyes

 

Yet another holiday tutorial for you all! I wanted to include at typical red lip at least once, and I figured an atypical brown smokey eye would be the perfect time.

 

Let’s get started:

 

smokeybrownglitter

 

  1. Prime the eyelids and set all over with “Gravitron” (1).
  2. With “Killing Moon” (2), distribute this throughout the crease, all the way from inner to outer corner.
  3. Pack “Astrological” (3) onto the outer corner, blending slightly into the outer crease. Increase intensity as desired.
  4. With a flat shader brush, mix “Lunacy” (4) and “Vast” (5) and apply to the lid.
  5. Use “Astrological” once again to blend any harsh edges and increase any intensity that may have been lost.
  6. For the lower lashline, take “Astrological” and run along the entire area, dragging downward slightly and connecting to the upper shadow for a smokey look.
  7. Line the water line with a brown liner.
  8. Curl and coat your lashes. Add falsies if you’d like.

Digs and Duds

August Digs and Duds

Hello my lovelies!

I may be a little late, but I would never miss the month’s digs and duds!In this particular post, I don’t have a lot of new things to share, however, if you take a look at my First Impressions post, you’ll get a fairly in depth reviews of a lot of products!

Digs


 

Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Foundation – I’ve not seen much talk about this foundation, and I honestly can’t understand why. This is such a beautiful, natural-yet-full coverage foundation, and gives the best satin finish. This foundation is a perfect drugstore option for when you want something that isn’t dewy or matte (48.99 at Target. Available in 16 shades).

Maybelline Super Stay better Skin Powder Foundation – I always used to think that putting powder foundation over my liquid foundation was a big no, but when you find the right powder, it’s a huge yes. I LOVE using this powder to touch up throughout the day, because it’s super light, and doesn’t appear cakey in the slightest. I am VERY impressed with this powder, especially for one that comes from the drugstore ($8.99 at Target. Available in 8 colors).

NO 7 Shimmer Palette “Bronze” – While this Palette is way too dark for me to act as a highlighter, I love this for my eyes. The color payoff is very nice, and the colors go beautifully with my blue eyes ($14.99 at Walgreens. Available in 2 other colors).

Akira Uptown Chiffon Bomber “Yellow” – This bomber has been my shit as of lately. While it’s a little too hot to use at the moment, I feel like this color speaks to me on so many levels. I’ve had a lowkey obsession with bomber jackets as of late, so stay tuned for some posts on those (On sale for $20.00 at Akira).

“Gasoline” by Halsey – I first heard this song in an offshoot music video for Suicide Squad, and immediately went to hunt down this song on itunes. I love how different it sounds, with the different pitches and instruments used.

 

Duds


Revlon Colorstay 16 Hour Eyeshadow “505 Decadent” – This eyeshadow quad is just not doing it for me. The pigmentation is very blah, and I have a hard time picking up any product onto a brush. The colors are very pretty, however, I have a hard time wanting to use this product at 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 start to your week!

Summer Pool Makeup

Hello my lovelies!

 

Summerpoolmakeup

It’s been crazy hot up here in Wisconsin, so obviously I’ve been taking the opportunity to go for a swim as often as I can. Sometimes, I just like to look like I tried a little when I go to the pool, and on those days, I put on just a touch of makeup.

This look is, of course, VERY light coverage, as it should be when hanging out in a place with lots of water. If your products aren’t explicitly waterproof, you can simply apply thin layers, which will have relatively the same effect.

Let’s get started:

  1. Apply your favorite BB or CC cream. Apply and mix onto your fingers. Pat all over the skin until blended. Add more if necessary.
  2. With a concealer the same shade as your skin, spot correct any areas that you feel need more coverage. Pat in with the middle or forefinger.
  3. We’re still going to highlight and bronze of course. You can use a powder product, but I opted for a cream contour pencil and liquid highlight. Place the contour in any areas you prefer and blend into your skin. With a liquid highlighter, tap this into the high points of your face with your fingers.
  4. The only setting we’re going to do is of the highlighter. Using a highlighter brush, take any preferred powder highlighter and set any places you put the liquid highlighter. Apply this to your eyelids for an even more glowy look.
  5. Apply any long lasting blush to cheeks, from the apple to the temples. Run a small amount across the bridge of your nose for a slightly sunkissed look.
  6. Fill in your brows lightly, either with pomade, wax, or brow gel (optional).
  7. Apply a fun lipstick color to draw attention to your glowing face.
  8. Set all your hard work with a setting spray of your choice.
