FOTD: Rockstar

9 Feb

This song was HOT during my freshman year in college, LMBO! I know the video is awesomely bad, but admit that the music gets you in a “rock” mood. I had forgotten all about this song until I heard it in a Samsung commercial last week. TOO FUNNY! Anyway… let’s talk makuep! Today’s look is pretty simple, I didn’t wanna draw too much attention to my eyes, so I did a simple smoky look that allows the bright pink lipstick to pop.

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I applied this dark pewter (metallic finish) from the Wet N Wild Lust palette over my entire lower eyelid. On my crease I used matte dark brown from the Wet N Wild Vanity palette, then I used matte peach e/s (WNW Greed palette) to highlight my brow bone area.


OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows & L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined my upper lashline & waterline with Wet N Wild cream liner in black.

CHEEKS: Wet N Wild blush in Heather Silk

LIPS: Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color in Fuchsia Fever + CO Bigelow lip gloss in Pink Mint

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

I received a friendly reminder that I haven’t been posting FOTDs lately… Sorry guys! The product reviews & acquisitions & Giovanni have kept me pretty busy. Speaking of Giovanni… My hair is day 3 of a twist-out. It looked a ham this particular morning, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to test out the banana clip faux-hawk. No gel on the sides this time, just a little Mane-N-Tail Leave-In conditioner before brushing it back. I excluded the hair in front from the banana clip, to give me a bang. Here’s the side view…


FOTD: Rusty… yet fabulous!

1 Sep

Hey Glams! How’ve you been? I missed you desperately & am so glad to be back in action 🙂 After an entire week without blogging I feel a bit rusty (hence the title) LOL! But it’s just like riding a bike, ya know? Today I used NYX Ultra Pearl Mania loose e/s in “Penny,” which is one of my favorite NYX eyeshadows!!! Warm, pinkish-reddish-copper color + metallic sheen = to die for! ENJOY

PRIMER:  Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Matte e/s primer

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I used NYX Ultra Pearl Mania loose e/s in “Penny” on the majority of my lower eyelid. Then I used matte off white to highlight my tearducts & matte dark brown to shade e/s  to shade my outer v (both from Wet N Wild Vanity palette). Finally, I used matte camel e/s to highlight my brow bone (also WNW Vanity).

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined my waterline using Wet N Wild pencil in lilac, & set the eyeliner by applying CoverGirl e/s in “Purple Pop” with my pencil brush.

LIPS:  Carmex + “Stop Violence in the Home” lip gloss by The Body Shop

CHEEKS: Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep
