8 Jun

PRIMER/BASE: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Fierce & Tangy (tangerine orange cream shadow)

SHADOW: I applied matte peach (from the Wet N Wild Greed palette) e/s to the innermost portion of my lower lid. I blended the peach into Black Radiance blush in Soft Honey; it’s a matte terracotta color. YES! you can use blush as eyeshadow. ūüėČ Then I used my Coastal Scents crease brush to apply matte blackened purple (from the WNW Lust palette) to my outer v. Finally I used matte camel (from the WNW Vanity palette) to highlight my browbone.

OTHER DETAILS… I used matte blackened purple e/s from the WNW Lust palette to fill in my eyebrows & L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my lashes. I defined my upper lashline using Wet N Wild cream liner in black & my lower lashline in L’Oreal H.I.P. cream liner in Teal.

31 May

PRIMER: Coastal Scents Shadow Worx matte e/s primer

BASE: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Fierce & Tangy (tangerine orange cream shadow)

SHADOW: I applied matte peach (from the Wet N Wild Greed palette) e/s to the tearduct area & inner half of my lower lid. Then I blended the peach into light tangerine (from the Coastal Scents Hot Pots palette). To create the cut crease, I used a pencil brush to apply matte dark brown (from the WNW Vanity palette) along my crease. Then I used my Sonia Kashuk large blending brush to fade the dark brown upward into my brow area. I used matte camel (also from the WNW Vanity palette) to highlight my brow bone.

Something new: Maybelline Color Tattoo

11 Jan

You see what had happened was… I went to Wal-mart to buy some cereal, milk, juice & bread, yet somehow I landed in the cosmetics department. I think my feet walked over there on auto-pilot, or something like that. I literally gasped when I stumbled upon this display & startled the lady standing next to me, LOL!

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream Gel Shadow

‚ÄĘ Ink technology creates 24HR wear shadow for our most intense, long-lasting color saturation
‚ÄĘ Cream formula glides on without creasing and keeps color vibrant
‚ÄĘ Ophthalmologist-tested.¬† Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers

I bought three of the ten available shades; Fierce & Tangy 10 (shimmery tangerine orange), Pomegranate Punk 30 (pinkish burgundy w/ gold glitter) & Painted Purple 20 (shimmery purple).

These are the preliminary swatches…

My first impression is that the colors are very pigmented, yet blend-able & the formula is creamy, yet non-greasy. I haven’t used them yet, so I can’t testify about their longevity. I can’t wait to try em! Stay tuned for my review.

FOTD: 80s Baby!!!

12 Dec

It’s flashback time! What did you love about the 80s? My favorite 80s phenomena¬†(in no particular order) are:

  • NEON COLORS (obviously)
  • Molly Ringwald movies
  • Pre-surgical Michael
  • Pre-crack Whitney
  • Slouch socks!!!
  • Stirrup leggings
  • Ghostbusters
  • Fast Times @ Ridgemont High
  • Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
  • Dirty Dancing
  • Prince
  • Fat Luther

Ahhh… as fun as that was, I know you didn’t come here to reminisce, so let’s talk about makeup! ūüôā For this look I used NYX Cosmetics Ultra Pearl Mania in Orange Zest Pearl… NOT to be confused with Orange Pearl (see Thanksgiving FOTD). They appear similar but Orange Pearl (left) is a coppery,¬†metallic orange, whereas¬†Orange Zest is (right) a¬†peachy orange speckled w/ gold glitter. Orange Zest is very sparkly w/ TONS of glitter fallout. The fallout doesn’t bother me enough not to wear it, but if you’re wearing a full face that day (concealer, foundation, etc.), you might wanna do your eyes first. NOTE: Milk was used as a base for these swatches, but they are extremely pigmented, so any flesh-colored base would work just as well.

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I covered my entire lower eyelid in NYX Ultra Pearl Mania in Orange Zest Pearl. I used my crease brush to apply matte fuchsia e/s to the crease & blended that upwards into matte peach e/s (Wet N Wild Greed palette). Finally I used matte plum purple e/s (from the Wet N Wild Lust palette) to deepen my outer v.

   

OTHER DETAILS‚Ķ¬†I used Wet N Wild Arch Envy brow wax & CoverGirl¬†single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows & Maybelline Volume Express ‚ÄúFalsies‚ÄĚ Mascara¬†in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined¬†my upper lashline & waterline with”The Deep End” waterproof cream liner by Sephora. I also used Black Radiance Complexion Perfection Undereye Concealer (in CA8010for light to medium complexions).

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

CHEEKS: I used Ulta¬†single e/s in ‚ÄúSparks‚ÄĚ on the hollows of my cheeks & Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey on the apples.

LIPS: Carmex + L’Oreal H.I.P. lip gloss in Inviting

What are your favorite 80s moments/ trends/ music/ phenomena?

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

SHADOW: I covered my entire lower eyelid in NYX Ultra Pearl Mania in Orange pearl.

Then I used my Coastal Scents Italian badger hair crease brush to blend that line & fade the dark green e/s into a lighter shimmery green (Verdigris by Ulta). Finally I used matte camel e/s (from the Wet N Wild Vanity palette) to highlight my brow bone.

Muah-haha haaa! *in my diabolical LAUGH*

My coworkers decided that we would dress up for Halloween, so I actually wore this to work.¬†I think my clients were at least mildly amused by our shenanigans, LOL.

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

SHADOW:I covered my entire lower eyelid in a shimmery orange e/s from the Shany Cosmetics 120 palette. To create the cut crease, I drew a line along the crease of my eyelid using a black eyeliner pencil. Continue reading

FOTD: QueenB’s African Sahara

17 Oct

This FOTD was inspired by the late, great QueenB, who passed away earlier this year. Her looks were impeccable & she will be missed! Click here to watch her African Sahara tutorial video.

PRIMER: NYX High Def e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Yellow

SHADOW: I covered my lower lid in Coastal Scents’ Canary Yellow mica powder. Using my Sonia Kashuk large crease brush, I applied orange e/s (Shany Cosmetics 120 palette) from my crease to just below my brow bone. Then I went back in with a smaller brush (Coastal Scents Italian badger crease brush) & applied matte dark brown e/s (Wet N Wild Vanity palette) to the inner crease, to create a distinct boundary between the yellow & orange eyeshadows. Then I used matte camel to fade the orange e/s into my brow bone¬†& frosty champagne e/s to highlight the arches of my eyebrows (also from WNW Vanity). I lined my lower lashline with Wet N Wild eyeliner pencil in cool green, then I used a pencil brush to apply matte, grassy green e/s & set the liner. Continue reading
