New Makeup Tutorials!

Hey beauties,

First off, Happy October! September kind of flew by for me, but it’s okay since my favorite holiday is almost here! I’ll more than likely be trick or treating with my kids, but I’m truly excited because Harmony is now old enough to pick out her own costume. Lately, she’s been obsessed with Tim Burton films and weird clay-mation movies, so I’m eager to see what she has in mind.

I do not have a detailed “Face of the Day” post this week as I’m trying to catch up on a few things I need to film so I can finally start on Halloween tutorials and blog posts! I do, however, have a few new tutorials on my Youtube channel! One is very glamorous, and the other is very dark and bold. Kinda grungy, still kinda glamorous.

I hope you all enjoy them! If you’re not subscribed to my channel, you should be! You can see when I upload new videos first and come chat with me!

  1. Too Faced Stardust palette & the Vegas Nay Grand Glamor Lashes

This tutorial is the more “Fall glam” look. It’s really not very hard to achieve, but the lashes really steal the show in this look, in my honest opinion. They take the look from everyday to “bam!”

I do have a full product list underneath the description. If you’re curious about the Too Faced and Vegas Nay Stardust palette, I have a full review with swatches here.

2. Warm Eyes + Black Lips ft. Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter Stack

pretty zombie cosmetics black cat IMG_2357

I’ll be honest, this is probably my favorite tutorial I have done so far. It was really fun to create, and it’s very bold, yet very simple to achieve. Those are my favorite kinds of looks, honestly. The ones that anyone can do and do a bit messily and them still look glamorous. I haven’t used my Dark Matter stack in awhile, and I paired it with a few indie shadows to keep this look mostly vegan on the eyes and lips, other than the Nyx inner corner highlight. I do have a review of the Dark Matter stack here if you want to see if I feel this 4 color magnetic palette is worth the hype.

Full details and products are under the description for this look as well!

That’s it for what’s new on my Youtube channel! Which is your favorite look? If you have any requests, please let me know!

As always, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

FOTD: Fall Inspired (Video Tutorial Included)

IMG_1906

Hey lovelies,

This week’s face of the day post is actually a video tutorial! I really wanted to do a fall inspired tutorial, and I’ve been feeling these wine and plummy red shades lately, so I decided to just smack those colors right on my eyeballs and lips.

Ever have one of those days where it’s just not a good selfie day? I was having one of those days, but I’m overall happy with how this look turned out, other than the fact that I somehow forgot to include an inner corner highlight. I wasn’t going to not upload this based on just that, but it’s all good. I think it looks fine without it.

Anyway, I really wanted to do a video tutorial using the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 palette. It’s one that I use so often, but so many of the shades remind me of Fall. That and many of the shades in this palette are reminiscent of a few Lorac palettes and the Naked 3 palette, so it’s an awesome money saver without skimping out on quality! I always talk about how amazing it is, so I decided to put my brush where my mouth is and show you all. Okay, I put my brush where…my eye is?? You know what I mean.

Maybelline Blur and Illuminate Primer

Face of the Day: Purple + Graphic liner

IMG_8171

Hey loves,

It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for another weekly Face of the Day post! However, this week I actually filmed this look. I was feeling inspired and had a bit of free time (aka the babies were sleeping) so I sat down and played with makeup. I was feeling inspired by several things, the color purple and one of my favorite youtubers, ReeRee Phillips. If you’re not subscribed to her, she does very goth looks, but they are somehow artsy and wearable…or atΒ  least wearable to me. There’s something enchanting about her makeup tutorials, so if you’re not subscribed to her, check her out. I also love that she uses classical music as the background for her videos…I can only handle that whistling song so many times. I’m just being honest.

Face of the Day: Elf Cosmetics

elf contour palette

Hey beauties,

Today I have another Face of the Day post, but there’s also a video tutorial on it! A little bit ago I posted a video about my top 10 favorite Elf products and I wanted to follow that up with a video using mostly Elf products. I used a few of my old favorites, and a few new favorites.

I even used and talked more about the new Elf contour palette!

Isn’t it lovely? In short, I really like this palette so far and I think Elf did a great job with it!

For this tutorial, I did a very dark brown smokey eye…the kind of smokey eye my mom likes to refer to as “bedroom eyes.” Ha! I liked the way this turned out, and it would make my day if anyone that wants to watch it would and let me know what you think about it!

I know I’ve done a lot of bronzey and neutral looks lately, and I promise I will sit down soon and do something a little more colorful. Also, all of the products and brushes used are listed in the description under the video! If anyone has any questions or wants to know my thoughts on anything in particular, please feel free to ask! I promise that on Mondays I am too tired to bite.

I do hope you all enjoy this very affordable makeup look!

Have a great Monday!

Too Faced Natural Matte Palette

too faced natural matte

Hey lovelies,

Today, I have another palette review! This is going to be about the relatively new Too Faced Natural Eyes Matte palette. Not to be mistaken with their original Natural Eyes palette (one of my personal favorites).

This palette is $36 on http://www.toofaced.com or on sephora.com, but I actually snagged this for 20% using a code from Ipsy. There are two new palettes right now on Too Faced, a matte one and a colorful one. You all know how much I love matte shadows…and neutrals, so yeah, I needed this one.

IMG_6320

too faced natural matte

First off, there are 9 shades in this palette. There are a couple of repeat shades from the original, but I don’t mind. The repeat shades are Heaven, Garter Belt, Sexpresso, and Nudie. I love those shades in the original, so I honestly don’t mind having duplicates of them. However, if that bugs you keep it in mind if you’re debating on getting this.

IMG_6319

This is the side by side comparison. Even though there are duplicate shades, these palettes are very different outside of the fact that the original has shimmer shades.

The shades that drew me in and basically seduced me were “chocolate cookie” and “honey butter.” Those shades just looked so damn pretty to me.

I do feel there is a good balance of warm and cooler shades in this palette.

The shadows did kick up a bit when I first tried them (mostly chocolate cookie) but it wasn’t too bad. The colors are still very blendable and buttery.

In terms of pigmentation, these are pretty pigmented, but maybe not as pigmented as my Kat Von D Shade + Light eye palette. I have a feeling I may be comparing every palette I buy this year to that one.

If I had to choose between the two for life threatening reasons, I would go with the Kat Von D one. Unless you’re a collector or just really freakin’ love palettes, you probably won’t need bother. Too Faced is my second favorite brand of all time though, so I wanted it for obvious personal reasons.

Hey, this is a non judging zone.

IMG_6290

Left to right: heaven, cashmere bunny, sexpresso, lace teddy, strapless, risque, nudie, honey butter, chocolate cookie

I did these swatches over no primer.

Overall, I’m really happy with this purchase and I don’t feel it’s a redundant thing for me to have, even though I already own the original. I feel the colors blend easily and look beautiful over primed eyelids. Chocolate cookie and Honey Butter are everything, in my opinion. I really love those two colors. This packaging is also very travel friendly.

Attached is a first impression with me using the shadows and a matte brown smokey eye tutorial πŸ™‚

Pictorial: Neutral Look Ft. Elf “Naked” Palette

IMG_2874

Today I am going to attempt my first “pictorial” type of post featering my new elf prism palette. I did not take pictures at every step, but I am going to thoroughly explain everything. I will admit that I did not anticipate how hard a pictorial would be, so props to anyone that does these often.

I already had my face and brows completed before starting this look. That’s typically how I do my makeup, but feel free to not copy me at all. I know some people will do eyes first and brows last, but the fun of makeup is that there’s no rules. You do you.
First, I always go in with a bit of concealer on my eyelids. This is optional, but I have very dark lids and veins because I’m pale and an asthmatic. It cancels out any redness and darkness. After that set for a few seconds I put on elf’s studio eyeshadow in “Toast” as a shimmery base for the shadows. This is also optional, I was just feeling extra sparkly when planning this look out.
Next, I took a Nyx matte shadow in “Dances with Tides” (a warm orange-ish brown shade) sloppily in the crease. This is just a transitional shade, so it doesn’t have to be precise. Then I took first shade in the prism palette (the shimmery white one) on a flat eyeshadow brush and started packing it on my lid. I used a patting motion to really get the color on there.

I then took the second to last brown shade (not the darkest one) and put it on the outside corner of my eyes as well as on the outside of the crease. Using a fluffy blending brush I blending it out and into the middle of my eye a bit, and blended it into the crease. This was when I also created the “shape” that I wanted to make my eyeshadow before I started to work with any darker shades. I personally take my shadow out a bit since my eyes are so giant. It gives my eyes the illusion of looking a bit wider instead of just looking like I am constantly confused and surprised.

IMG_2860

Anyway, after that you could finish the look. It would be a very soft and subtle neutral look. However, I was feeling like I needed a bit of a darker and less shimmery shade to balance it out so I took my ColourPop shadow in the shade “Mittens” and applied it on the very outer crease with an eyeshadow sponge. What…no brush? Nope. I used one of those little sponge things that I typically throw away and it applied the ColourPop shadow better than my fingers or a brush ever could. I knew those things would come in handy again someday.

IMG_2855

I went through again and made sure everything was blended and shaped evenly.
I then went created a cat wing using my holy grail eyeliner…physicians formula eye booster pen in “ultra black” and applied falsies (also optional) and the ones I used were Red Cherry #43.

IMG_2859

I went in with a black eyeliner and lined my water line and then took the original transition shade (dances with tides) and put that close to my lash line. Then I took a little bit of “Mittens” on the same brush and smudged and blended all of those together on my lower lash line and finished it off with a coat of Wet n Wild mega length mascara. Lastly, I popped a little bit of my city colour white gold mousse in the corners of my eyes to open them up a bit and put a bit of the first white shimmery shade from the prism palette near my brows to highlight those as well.

IMG_2869

IMG_2868

For the lips, since it’s neutral you could do any color you want. I chose a cabernet liner topped with my Manic Panic “Blood Rose” lip gloss. I feel this would be a quick and beautiful look for the holidays if you’re wanting a look that’s shimmery but not high maintenance.

IMG_2882

Overall, I love this look and I’m happy with it. Feel free to give me thoughts on this pictorial and subscribe if you would like! I am hoping to have my very first youtube videos up this week!
