Rainbow Pride: Brown

Hello my lovelies!

 

BrownRainbowFace

 

In case you missed it, Philly created a new pride flag to incorporate fellow LGBTQ+ people of color, and naturally I’m all for it. The flag now includes the colors brown and black, so I wanted to include these in my series as well. Furthermore, I tried to create a look that I felt would look good on anyone with a darker complexion, although it might look different than it does on my pale ass.

 

BrownRainbowEyes

 

If you notice that my lashes don’t look as stark black as usual, it’s because I decided to use a brown mascara to keep with the brown color theme. Obviously, you can use whatever color you feel is best, but I thought the brown mascara tied in really well, and was a little more subtle.

 

Let’s get started:

Eyelids:

  1. Prime the eyelids and set with shadow one, or any other shadow that matches your skin tone best.
  2. Blend shadow two throughout the entire upper crease in order to help with blending darker colors.
  3. Distribute shadow three slightly lower into the crease to create definition in the socket.
  4. Pack shadow four onto the outer corner, blending outward and into the outer half of the crease, as low as possible.
  5. Place shadow five across the empty space of the eyelid. This will help  cover any messy blending, and gives the lid an even brown wash, much like am ombre effect.

Lower Lashline:

  1. Mix shadows two and three and blend across the entire lashline. The further down you blend, the more hazy and smokey this will be.
  2. Blend shadow four onto the outer half of the lashline, connecting upper outer corner.

Other:

  1. Pack shadow six onto the tear duct for an added highlight.
  2. Line the waterline with any brown or bronzey liner.
  3. Curl and coat your lashes with brown mascara.

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:

 

Carli_Bybel_Deluxe_Palette_Open_Flat_1024x1024

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.

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.

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.

Spring Trends: Pink Eyeshadow and Red Lips

Hello my lovelies!

 

SpringOnTrend

 

Today’s post isn’t really a tutorial, since the eye look I’m featuring only has two colors. I wanted to show my take on a spring trend that I’m pretty into; Pink shadow and red lips. I understand that the combo sounds a little loud, however I think it’s really easy to tone down the eyes and create something unique to every individual. The great thing about this trend is that you don’t have to use one version of pink. I used a darker, more warm toned blush on my eyes, and paired a pink toned red lip with it. I think this trend is something fun and colorful, yet leans on a makeup classic that anyone can pull off.

One of my favorite things about makeup is that a product meant for one thing, can be used for so many other things. For my eyes, I used a blush in my crease, and a cheek highlighter in my inner corner, making this look completely customized toward what I like.

I know a few of you are probably tired of my multiple pink shadow looks by now, but I’m just obsessed with a little pink-eye chic (only kidding).

Wearing The Unwearable: Red Eyeshadow

Hello my lovelies!

 

WearingTheUnwearableRedFace

 

In honor of International Women’s Day this past Wednesday, I decided to create an eye look featuring red toned eyeshadows. In case some of you aren’t aware, red is the designated color used to honor women on this day, and I felt inspired to create something to celebrate us!

Eye Lid

  1. Prime the eyelids and set with powder.
  2. Highlight the brow bone with shadow one. This can also be used for any cleanup.
  3. Blend shadow two all throughout the eye area. This is our transition shade to help all other colors blend smoothly.
  4. On a detailed blending brush, blend shade three into just the crease area. This is a bright color, so be sure to blend this thoroughly, and try not to be too messy with it. Like step two says, go in with shadow one again for any cleanup.
  5. Pack Shade four onto the outer corner for some slight dimension. .
  6. Wet a flat shader brush with shadow five and pack all over the lid.
  7. Place shade six into the inner corner and tear duct.

Lower Lashline

  1. Blend shade two all the way from inner to outer corner.
  2. Pack shadow three close to the eyelashes for definition.
  3. Place shade four on the outer corner and blend inward about a third of the way.
  4. Place a bronze eyeliner into the waterline.

My “No Makeup” Makeup Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

 

everydaybase2

 

Let me premise this whole post by saying that I know this isn’t super exciting or fun, but it’s VERY out of my comfort zone. If any of you have been following me for a while, you know that I adore my pancake face. I have no shame in the massive amount of makeup I pile onto my face, because it fuels my artistic side, and it makes me happy. On the flip side, I have zero issues going out in public, bare faced, with my cystic acne taking a front row seat. I can happily say that I like myself exactly the way I am. However, I do understand that not everyone who reads my blog wears the amount of makeup that I do, and as a blogger and influencer, I want to include everyone. For me, this look is very minimal and something that is new and different. As always, if you need to do something differently or tweak a step, then go for it!

 

Let’s get started:

This look involves a lot of cream based products, as they give off a more “natural” appearance to the skin. Feel free to switch anything out, add in products, or take away any items you don’t want to use. I will also be using a sponge for my cream products unless otherwise noted.

everydaybase1

  1. prime the entire face with your preferred primer. I tend to lean towards anything mattifying, even if I am going for a more luminous look, because I’m super oily.
  2. Color correct any areas that you are concerned with. For me, this was the under eye area, and I used a salmon colored corrector.
  3. Apply your preferred light to medium coverage foundation. Don’t forget to drag this down to your neck and on your ears.
  4. Apply a radiant highlighting concealer to the under eyes, the chin, the middle of the forehead, and the bridge of the nose. Blend out with a beauty sponge.
  5. Using a cream contour shade, I like to stick to only contouring my cheekbones. When I’m going for something more natural, I generally don’t want to have as harsh a contour as I would when I’m more glam. If you’re used to contouring your nose, go for it. I prefer to “reverse contour” by blending out my concealer onto the sides of my nose.
  6. With a cream bronzer, apply this to the cheekbones, the sides and top of the forehead, the chin, and the jawline.
  7. Blend out both the contour and bronzer creams with a stippling brush. I prefer a brush for these particular products because I feel that the color payoff is better.
  8. With a liquid highlighter, apply this to the high points of the cheekbones, the bridge and tip of the nose, and above the brow.
  9. Set the under eyes with a translucent powder on your beauty sponge. Very lightly set the rest of the face with that same translucent powder on a large powder brush.
  10. Set the contoured and bronzed areas with a powder bronzer to ensure that nothing slides around on your face.
  11. Apply a blush that would be appropriately nude for your skin tone.
  12. Set the liquid highlight with a powder highlight. While I love my Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors, these are a bit too chunky for a “no makeup” look. I would suggest something with a minimal amount of glitter.
  13. At this point, brows are completely optional. I was blessed with good eyebrows (thanks mom), so I filled them in very minimally, only coloring in any sparse areas, and creating a slightly more defined shape.
  14. The eyeshadow is just the powder bronzer I used earlier, distributed throughout the crease.
  15. Apply one REALLY good coat of mascara. Normally I apply two coats, but there’s no reason to go overboard with a natural look.
  16. Apply a truly nude lipstick. This should be a “your lips but better” shade. I chose something with a warm pink undertone, since my lips are naturally pretty pigmented.
  17. Throw a little gloss on, set the face with a setting spray, and rock the no makeup look!

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 start to your week!

Deep Purple Smokey Eye Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

 

deeppurplesmokeyeyeface

 

In my sick and bored state this weekend, I decided to play around with my makeup in order to create a more dramatic look, something I don’t usually wear. Over the holidays, I received a beautiful single shadow by M.A.C. from my aunt. I figured hey, glitter makes me feel better, so why not play around? For this entire look, I used only two eyeshadows, both from M.A.C., but you can use anything similar you have. One shadow is from the Warm Neutrals palette and does not have a name, so I will be describing the color when I use it instead. If you have questions about what shadow it is specifically, please feel free to leave me a comment!

 

Let’s get started:

 

deeppurplesmokeyeyes

 

  1. Prime the eyelids and set with a shadow that closely matches your skintone.
  2. With the Maybelline Color Tattoo crayon in “Lilac Dust”, cover the entire lid and slightly into the crease. We will blend this further with shadow.
  3. Using “Feel the Fever” (or any deep, sparkly purple shadow that you own), Wet a brush and pack this all over the entire lid.
  4. Using a deep plum or black shadow, blend out all harsh edges throughout the crease. I went more editorial and blending the glitter up into my crease as well, but you do not have to do this
  5. On the outer corner, pack and blend out that same dark shadow for added defintion.
  6. For the lower lashline, blend out the dark shadow at least halfway from the outer corner.
  7. Blend “Feel the Fever” across the inner half, reaching toward the inner corner.
  8. Line the water line with the same “Lilac Dust” crayon.
  9. Apply a white highlighter or eyeshadow to the inner tear duct.
  10. Curl and coat your lashes, apply falsies if you wish.

Brown Monochrome Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

 

monochromebrownface

 

I’ve been seeing so many monochrome looks scattered around the blogosphere lately, but I haven’t seen a lot of neutral toned interpretations. Funny enough, because the browns I’m using on both the eyes and lips are red toned, it goes eerily well with my brown roots and burgundy strands!

 

brownmonochrome

 

Let’s get started:

 

22719370817_f2e2b49b4e_o

  1. Prime and set the eyelids with any bone/skin colored shadow.
  2. Blend “Zone” throughout the entire crease, creating a very blown out and rounded effect.
  3. Place “Punk” on the outer corners, blending into a round shape and slightly into the outer crease. There’s no need to really layer this shade, as it stands on its own very nicely.
  4. Use a flat shader brush to place “Stark” on the inner half of the eyelid. Blend out the shadow into “Punk” very slightly.
  5. Line the waterline with any brown eyeliner pencil that you own.
  6. With a small pencil brush, blend “Punk” from the outer corner of the lower lashline, stopping just short of the inner corner. Connect this shadow to the eyelid shadow.
  7. Curl and coat your lashes. Add falsies if you wish.

Dark Navy Smokey Eye Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

 

darkbluesmokeyeyeface

Yet again stepping out of my comfort zone slightly, I decided to create a very dark smokey eye for you all. I originally wore this Wednesday night at Season 8 THE QUEENS show I went to, which was obviously amazing. Nothing beats seeing Kim Chi up close and getting a shirt signed by her.

 

darkbluesmokeyeye

I won’t lie, lately I’ve been in a bit of a rut with my creativity. I haven’t been wearing much makeup over my break, mostly because I’ve felt lacking in the creativity department. Seeing this drag show reignited my creative juices, so rest assured I’ve got a lot of fun and interesting looks coming your way!

Let’s get started:

*Please Note that I use a shadow NOT included in this palette. Feel free to use whatever you have available*

darkbluesmokeyeyespalette

  1. Prime and set the eyelids with a bone colored shadow.
  2. With a tapered blending brush, blend “Lula” throughout the entire crease, creating a defined shadow.
  3. Mixing “Isabel” and “Violeta”, carve out the outer crease and add some definition. Don’t worry about making these shadows too noticeable, as we will be covering them up later.
  4. Use a small packing brush, and pack “Claudia” all over the lid, into the inner and outer corners.
  5. Using the same mix of “Isabel” and “Violeta”, blend out any harsh edges from the blue shadow. Remember that this is supposed to look hazy, don’t get too caught up with crisp lines and precision.
  6. If you feel that your dark shadows have extended too high up to the brow bone, use your setting shade to clean up the area.
  7. Place any black shadow you own onto the outer corner with a pencil brush, and blend into the outer corner. Layer this at least 2-3 times, using smaller amounts of shadow at a time. Remember that you can ALWAYS build up a dark shadow, but it’s harder to take it away.
  8. For the bottom, blend the same black eyeshadow along the outer half. The lower you blend, the more dramatic this look will be.
  9. Take “Claudia” onto the inner half of the lashline.
  10. Line the waterline with a black Pencil Liner. Set with black eyeshadow if you have problems with lasting ability.
  11. Apply a White shimmer shade to the tear ducts for a highlight.
  12. Curl and coat your lashes, add falsies if that’s your thang.
