1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip glosses or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?

I would rather lose all my palletes and eye shadows, as expensive as they are and as much as I value them, I could do more with the mascara, eyeliner, lipstick and lip glosses.

I would have to go with never be able to cut it again.ย  I would love my hair to grow faster and stay longer forever haha.

With my skin tone and everyday make-up in mind, coral cheek

I always pick make-up over clothes.. very rare do I think about clothes first haha. I find a way to mix and match

Winter clothes in the summer because there’s still ways to dress and not over heat. Colorado winter is way too cold to be wear summer time clothing

Eyes of the Day | Too Faced & Nyx Cosmetics Palletes

Hi there!!!
How was your day?? Ive had a rather busy day: woke up at 6am to go to the ER, took a science test, went to lunch with a friend, went to work, had a meeting & finally had some time to relax! Up until 30 minutes before my meeting, I was bare faced so I finally had time to do my make-up so I created this easy, simple golden smokey eye using my Too Faced Cosmetics “Be Merry” pallete and my Nyx Cosmetics “Love in Paris” pallete.

image

I am so in love with how it turned out ๐Ÿ™‚ here are the easyyy steps below.

Step 1:

image

Apply this bold black shadow from the Nyx pallete into your crease. Blend it out generously all over your crease.

Step 2 & 3:

image

Take your brush and apply either eyedrops or MACs fixed plus so that it’s damp and will pick up all the glitter and pat Too Face’s “Buttered Rum” all over your lid.
Blend softly so that there aren’t any harsh lines between the black and gold.
(After you fill in brows) step 3 is to take “Egg Nog” and highlight your brow bone.

Step 4: Eyeliner. I used Maybelline’s infallible liquid liner pen

Step 5: Mascara. I used Too Faced Lash Injection mascara

Hope you all enjoyed. Let me know if you have question below.

Pictorial | My Go To Smokey Eye

I know this pictorial is kind of messy but it was my first time ever so I hope it helps ๐Ÿ™‚ Using my Morphe Brushes Pallete, I created a soft orange/purple smokey eye. Perfect for a night out or if you want a dramatic look for the day. We are celebrating my loves birthday tonight so I thought this was perfect!!!

image

*please refer back to my swatches blog post to see which colors I used*
Step 1: Prime eye and sweep #5 over your lid as a transition/base color. This is a very soft brownish orange color.
Step 2: Dab #2 on the outter part of your eyes. Pack it all in!!!
Step 3: Blend, blend, blend!!! Remove those harsh lines & really mix in the black with our transition color.
Step 4: Pat #7 all over the inner corners of your eyes and blend this in with the black.
Step 5: Use #11 to highlight your brow bow.
Step 6: Apply eyeliner… I did a cat eye look for today
Step 7: Coat your lashes with mascara
Step 8: Because the smokey look is already to heavy on our eyes, apply a skin tone or lght tones eyeliner to your waterline to make your eyes look bigger and bolder. Here I used Em Cosmetics waterliner in “sunshine yellow”

Please let me know if this was helpful. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Swatches | Morphe Brushes Customized E/S Pallete

image

Hi everyone! I’m sorry that I’ve been so busy with work, school & my personal life that I haven’t been able to post anything. But I’m back!
I purchased this Morphe Brushes Pallete a few months ago & I love it! I was able to pick and choose the colors I wanted for only $2 each and buy the pallete for $6.99. I’m a very neutral person and I love shimmer and mattes buy they offer a variety of other colors as well. Overall, I paid a little more than $35 after tax & shipping.
Below are the swatches, I apologize because I forgot the names of the colors but I do recommend everyone buy it for themselves! The colors are pigmented and very pretty. They also offer amazing quality brushes for an affordable price. Let me know if you have any questions below.

The Reality of Make-up

image

I am surrounded by numerous beauty lovers and people who have the same passion for it as I do, but then of course, there are a few here and there who strongly believe “if you wear make-up you’re fake and not natural” or my favorite one, “people who wear make-up are insecure about themseleves.” Don’t get me wrong, there are days where I don’t wear make-up but since I do majority of the time (even if it means just touching up on my brows and applying mascara) it doesn’t/shouldn’t categorize me as being insecure with myself or not being natural.

the reality of make-up…

1. Natural is beauty, but makeup is glam!
In the words of itsjudyslife, this quote is TRUE! Make-up enhances your natural beauty. Everyone is beautiful in their own way, cliche, I know, but it’s true. It takes confidence to not wear make-up AND even to wear make-up so I truly believe that if you wear make-up you have to be comfortable with yourself with or without it.

2. One must learn to accept their flaws and their face without make-up on.
Wearing make-up is an art that adds glam but it doesn’t define who you are. I think that’s one thing that people who don’t care for make-up don’t understand… yes it builds confidence but it doesn’t change a person or their personality. & It certainly doesn’t make them fake. It may cover up their dark circles or acne scars but that doesn’t define them, instead, it highlights the features on their face… and yes it does wonders! For me personally, some spots on my face are lighter or darker than others so with make-up (bb creams or foundations) it helps my neutralize my face. It also “livens” me up a bit otherwise I’d look super tired.

3. My last rant about the reality of make-up is that one must know how to apply it correctly. We can all agree that there are people who wear the wrong color foundation, too much blush or messed up contour,ย  nevertheless, it is a must to know how to wear it the right way. The right way that works for your skin type and facial features ๐Ÿ™‚
