FOTD: Too cool for school

1 Jul

As the title indicates, this FOTD is a mashup of cool colors. Remember my review of the Ruby Kisses HD gel eyeliner? Well, I went back to my local BSS & got the dark purple one. It’s called violet shimmer & I love it! I have no plans to do a formal review of this one, so just know that in my humble opinion, it’s the bee’s knees. If you’re looking for a muted purple eyeliner, I highly recommend it. ENJOY!

PRIMER: Mary Kay Eye Primer

BASE: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Fierce & Tangy

SHADOW: I applied a matte white e/s to the inner half of my lower eyelid. I blended that into cerulean blue (from the Black Radiance Retro Chic palette) on the outer v & matte navy blue (from the WNW Pride palette) in the crease. I used matte peach (from the WNW Lust palette) to highlight my browbone area.

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 & waterline using Ruby Kisses HD gel liner in Violet Shimmer. I traced a thin line below my waterline using Wet N Wild eyeliner pencil in Cool Green.

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

CHEEKS: Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey

LIPS: Lancome Le Rouge Absolu lipstick in Pink Diamond + CO Bigelow lip gloss in Pink Mint

FOTD: Turquoise Pearl

14 Jun

PRIMER: Mary Kay Eye Primer

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Rocky Mountain Green

SHADOW: I used NYX pearl mania loose e/s in “Turquoise pearl” over the majority of my lower lid. Then I used matte navy blue (from the WNW Pride palette) to darken the outer v. Next I used matte camel e/s (from the WNW Vanity palette) to highlight my browbone & fade out the turquoise. Finally I highlighted my inner corners with matte white e/s (also from the WNW Pride palette).

  

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 waterline using Wet N Wild pencil in lilac. I used “Deep Grape” e/s (from the Coastal Scents Hot Pots collection) to set the purple eyeliner.

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

CHEEKS: Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey

LIPS: Lancome Le Rouge Absolu lipstick in Pink Diamond + CO Bigelow lip gloss in Pink Mint

What’s going on with my wig?

I know they look more like coils, but this is a four day old flexi-rod set. For some reason my curls tend to get tighter over time, instead of staying the same diameter as the original rod. Anyway, my edges were fuzzy, so I brushed & smoothed em using Ecostyler Olive Oil gel. Then I secured it with a banana clip.

S.I.A.G. in HIGH DEFINITION!

My family is relieved that I’ve found an outlet for my PJism! I know my brother was tired of listening to my makeup reviews & hair babble *crickets chirping* LOL! So my final birthday present was an HD camcorder! I’m grateful to have such an awesome support system & I look forward to bringing you higher quality reviews & tutorials! 😉

FOTD: Inspired by Halloween

31 Oct

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. I rarely celebrate Halloween, but it was fun getting dressed up this year. I even bought candy for a whopping six Trick-Or-Treaters! *whomp whomp* ONTO THE MAKEUP…

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

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: Pewter & Purple Smoke

4 Sep

I love to chillax & watch movies on Sunday afternoon! Today I saw The Proposal starring Sandra Bullock & Ryan Reynolds (for the third time). If you haven’t already, you definitely need to see this movie. It’s super cute & Ryan is hottt!!! He’s also my birthday twin! BTW none of this has anything to do with my FOTD, just wanted to share, LOL! 🙂 Onto the makeup…

PRIMER:  NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I used a metallic pewter colored e/s called “Twilight” by Ulta on the majority of my lower eyelid. Then I used matte purple (Shany 120 palette) on my crease & outer v. Using my Coastal Scents crease brush, I gradually added darker shades of purple to my outer v until I got the desired depth of color (Wet N Wild Lust palette). Finally, I used matte peach e/s to highlight my brow bone & matte off white e/s to highlight my tearducts (both from Wet N Wild Greed palette). Continue reading

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.
