FOTD: A brown smoky eye

4 Nov

This FOTD is a recreation of my makeup in the Knot Today product review. Every woman needs a go-to neutral look! They’re so simple. Case in point: this look was created using only shadows from the Wet N Wild Vanity palette. But y’all know how much I LOVE color, so today my POP of color was Green Shimmer HD gel liner by Ruby Kisses; it’s a dark green w/ flecks of gold glitter.

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean (on the outer half of my eyelids)

SHADOW: I covered my entire lower eyelid in shimmery brown e/s. Then I used matte dark brown e/s to darken my outer v & matte camel to highlight brow bone. Finally I used frosty champagne to highlight my tearducts, as well as the arches of my eyebrow. ALL shadows used in this look are from the Wet N Wild Vanity palette.

 

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. Maybelline Volume Express “Falsies” Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined my upper lashline with Wet n Wild cream eyeliner in black & my waterline with Ruby Kisses HD gel liner in “green shimmer”.

LIPS: Carmex + Maybelline Shiny-Licious Lip Gloss in Peach Sorbet

CHEEKS: I used Ulta single e/s in “Sparks” on the hollows of my cheeks &  Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey on the apples of my cheeks.

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

Stay tuned for a video tutorial of this look…

FOTD: Caramel Dream…

21 Jul

Mmmm… who doesn’t love caramel? Especially when it’s paired with chocolate! Speaking of desserts, this FOTD was a piece of cake! I created this look using only eyeshadows from my Wet N Wild Vanity palette.

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I covered my entire lower eyelid in shimmery brown from the Wet N Wild Vanity palette. Then I used matte dark brown e/s to darken my outer v & matte camel to highlight my tearducts & brow bone (also from the Vanity palette).

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. Maybelline Volume Express “Falsies” Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined my upper lashline & waterline with Wet n Wild cream eyeliner in black.

LIPS: CO Bigelow Apothecaries lip gloss in “Pink Mint”

CHEEKS: Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey (8305B)

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

FOTD: Cherries Jubilee

15 Jun

Dontcha just LOVE cherries? They’re a great summertime snack!

In addition to being delicious, they’re good for you! Per choosecherries.com… a recent study revealed that a cherry-enriched diet may help lower body fat, total weight, inflammation and cholesterol – all major risk factors for heart disease. It is also believed that, anthocyanins (the antioxidant found in cherries) may be beneficial for a range of inflammatory-related conditions, including arthritis.

In case you hadn’t figured it out yet, I debuted my new NYX jumbo eye pencil in “Cherry” for this FOTD. I was pleased with both the color & the coverage. I have found some of the other NYX e/s pencils lacking in these departments, so I was pleasantly surprised. In my book it gets a perfect score! I highly recommend this pencil for you if you wanna do looks using red, orange or pink eyeshadows.

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cherry (lower lids) & Milk (tearducts)

SHADOW: I covered my lower eyelid (except for my tearducts) in bright red (Shany 120 palette). I used a blend of yellow gold & matte off white on my tearducts & matte camel to highlight my brow bone (WNW Vanity). NOTE: I used a softer, coral-red to blend the bolder red into the gold on my tearducts & the tan/camel on my brow bone.

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 with WetnWild cream eyeliner in black. On my waterline I used WetNWild eyeliner pencil in black.

LIPS: Carmex + Estee Lauder lip gloss in Rose
