Who is EmilyNoel83?

When I started doing YouTube videos 10+ years ago, I remember being one of the first 200 subscribers to EmilyNoel83.  She was a news reporter named Emily Noel who had a bubbly personality.  Emily filmed her videos in a small apartment with that “newscaster” flair and “girl next door” attitude, which I love.  She offers honest and truthful reviews that are not sponsored.  Her easy to follow makeup tutorials are for all levels of skill.  Cupcake (that’s her cat) would steal the show and make appearances.  Now, several years later, I’ve watched Emily have two beautiful little girls and build a channel that I value and respect.

Emily’s love for life, positivity and informative style is endearing and keeps her audience coming back for more.

Now, 10 years later, she’s collaborating with Makeup Revolution.  I’m so excited to share this collab with all of you.

The Emily Edit – The Needs Palette

The Needs Emily Edit was designed to be a “greatest hits” of the brand. A full-face style palette that really offers a “multi-tasking” use for each shade.   This beautiful palette is full of positivity, featuring Emily’s personal shade names that have a special color identity.  Gorgeously cased in pale pink packaging with Emily’s signature in rose gold.

Shades included in The Needs:

  • Courage – a medium brown, bronzer and contour shade with a matte finish
  • Joy – peachy pink blush with a matte finish
  • Gratitude – a creamy highlight with a satin finish
  • Kindness – cream translucent powder with a matte finish (Emily likes to use it as an under-eye powder)
  • Honesty – blush peach, satin finish
  • Passion – dark brown, with a red shimmer
  • Peace – peachy nude, matte finish
  • Faith – warm brown, matte finish
  • Hope – fudge brown, matte finish
  • Love – cream shade with a matte finish

I’m over the moon in love with these shades and the palette in a whole.  The Needs offers you the perfect travel palette because it has everything you need to create a look.  Every powder in this palette is silky and creamy.  Whether creating a smokey or neutral eye look, this palette has you covered.  The perfect “everyday” palette.

Left to Right Swatches:  Courage, Joy, Gratitude, Kindness, Honesty, Passion, Peace, Faith, Hope and Love.

Did I mention how large the mirror is?  A large mirror (the size of the palette) makes this ideal for any makeup lover.  The palette casing is sturdy and beautiful, offering it a lux look with great names.  Also, I love opening this palette and looking at the shade names, it’s so inspiring.

The Emily Edit – The Wants Palette

Emily Edit The Wants palette has easily become one of my favorites in my eyeshadow collection.  This gorgeous piece features 24 colors in a combination of matte, satin and shimmer shades.  What I love the most about this palette is the universal color range and how it works well with all skin tones.  But, I am absolutely crushing on the color selection as well.

The Wants palette is encased in a pale peach packaging with Emily’s signature in rose gold.

When you buy this palette, you may notice that each color is laid out in little quads that you can use together to create a cohesive look.  However, the colors all work well together so there are a plethora of combinations you can use to create a gorgeous look.

** Note that these swatches are done directly on my hand without any primer or base.  Many of these colors are applied to my skin in one swipe, so bare in mind that they can be built up to obtain a darker and richer shade.  I am a medium skin tone.

“I wanted this palette to inspire but could also allow you to stay in your comfort zone. I wanted the perfect balance of light, medium and really rich dark shades. I want the colors to be buildable, so you can reach that level of intensity that you want. You can create countless looks and endless creativity.”

My Final Thoughts

It is not often that I run out and buy a makeup palette that is a collaboration with any particular YouTuber.  But, as soon as I found out about this one, I knew I had to have it.  RevolutionxEmily The Needs and The Wants Palettes are beautiful and created so well.  I’ve mentioned the packaging previously, but I must reiterate that I really love how sturdy these palettes are.  Let’s talk about the price point too.  The Needs palette is just $15 and The Wants Palette is $20.  It’s not only affordable for anyone to purchase, but it is also great quality for the price point.

Way to Go Emily!

Though haven’t been wearing much makeup lately, the moment that I picked these up, I’ve been using them daily.  Both palettes have become favorites and I know I’ll be getting a ton of use out of them.  Mirrored hardshell case and beautiful shades in creamy shadows, yes… this is a must-have for anyone of any age.

EmilyNoel83 is one of my favorite YouTubers (she’s even listed on my YouTube Favorites List), so I am so excited and proud of her and her accomplishments.  These palettes are definitely Homeruns in my book and I’m loving them!

I have been waiting to get my hands on this palette and today, I can finally bring you my thoughts.  After months of waiting eagerly after setting my eyes on the palette personally with Mario himself, I could barely contain myself.  The Master Palette by Mario Dedivanovic from Anastasia Beverly Hills is quite a beaut.  I’m exciting to share my own little back story regarding this palette, so hold on tight as I take you on the journey.

Mario Dedivanovic, Master Palette, The Master Palette by Makeup by Mario, Makeup by Mario Master Palette, Anastasia Beverly Hills, ABH, palette, eye shadow palette, makeup, beauty, swatches,

Ah, in all of its gorgeous beauty, I finally have my hands on this palette… yay me.  The Master Palette was created by the famed makeup artist to the stars – Mario Dedivanovic.  If you are not sure who he is, I’ll give you a little information on him.  Mario is best known for working with the Kardashian family and celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Chrissy Teigen.  He and Norvina (Claudia) from Anastasia Beverly Hills made mention of a palette in the works many months ago, but no one really got a good look at it till August or so.  I met with Mario at a Master Class in August where I had the opportunity to be one of two people in a class of over 80 to see the palette live and in color.  I even had the opportunity to swatch the palette, but out of respect for Mario, I didn’t take any photos of the palette and was just overwhelmed with excitement that I was given the opportunity to do so.  A few weeks later, Mario posted the palette on his Snapchat and Instagram and everyone was able to see what it looked like prior to being released the first week of October.

Now, to be honest, if I hadn’t seen the palette first hand with my own two eyes, I would have swooned over it some… but probably wouldn’t have made the purchase and pick it up.  I am a fan of Anastasia Beverly Hills Palettes (I own at least 5 of them), but if I were just looking at images online, I would have thought to skip it since the colors are so similar to those from palettes I already owned.  But, that was not the case, I did see the palette before most of the World and the colors are those that I knew I would use – so I NEEDED IT!

Mario Dedivanovic, Master Palette, The Master Palette by Makeup by Mario, Makeup by Mario Master Palette, Anastasia Beverly Hills, ABH, palette, eye shadow palette, makeup, beauty, swatches,

Let’s talk about the packaging.  This palette has the same type of casing and packaging as other palettes that Anastasia Beverly Hills has created – but it comes an all black casing with gold detailing.  If you know anything about me, then you know that the packaging alone may have won me over… I love black and gold.  While simple, I think overall it offers much of what ABH palettes do, portable, not too bulky, easy to travel with and able to take a beating when traveling.  Since this is a palette that I know Mario takes on the road, I can see the durability and purpose in the packaging in its self.

Mario Dedivanovic, Master Palette, The Master Palette by Makeup by Mario, Makeup by Mario Master Palette, Anastasia Beverly Hills, ABH, palette, eye shadow palette, makeup, beauty, swatches,

The colors, oh hello colors.  This palette honestly offers fairly basic shades, right?  Well… yes, and no!  The shades are definitely neutral and wearable – which I know that Mario was aiming for, since he’s honestly about classic beauty and glamour, not the done up instagram trends we see all over the internet.  While he is known as the King of Contour, he is a huge fan of effortless beauty and loves creating those looks personally on his clientele.

Mario Dedivanovic, Master Palette, The Master Palette by Makeup by Mario, Makeup by Mario Master Palette, Anastasia Beverly Hills, ABH, palette, eye shadow palette, makeup, beauty, swatches,

Each shadow, whether matte or shimmer through out the palette offer such great pigmentation… high intensity color.  Each have such a gorgeous texture, smooth and buttery.  I have used several palettes from ABH, the Modern Renaissance being my favorite before I tried this one, and I absolutely love the quality of this palette.  Smooth, satin shades are just the plus side to how wonderful this palette is.  The colors, while neutral – offer anyone a wide range of shades to create an every day look or a show stopping smoky eye.  The options are endless.

Mario Dedivanovic, Master Palette, The Master Palette by Makeup by Mario, Makeup by Mario Master Palette, Anastasia Beverly Hills, ABH, palette, eye shadow palette, makeup, beauty, swatches,

Like most (if not all) of the ABH palettes, this particular one comes with a duo-ended makeup brush.  A shadow end and one for blending – which makes this the perfect palette for on the go.  Each eye shadow (12 shades in all) is named after women and places that have given Mario inspiration over the years.  Do you see Lula (Mario’s mom), Marina (Mario’s sister), Kim and Claudia in the mix?  Need I say more?  This definitely was a palette created with the inspiration that Mario found in his life.

Bottom Row Swatches – From Left to Right:  Lula, Isabel, Violeta, 5th Ave., Bronx, Paris.

All of the shades are gorgeous and I love that there are a mixture of matte and shimmer shades.  Each shadow offers such gorgeous color payoff and while some of the shimmer shades can have a bit of fall out, honestly, they are so pigmented and buttery… a little product goes a long way.  Rich gorgeous color in one swipe and no patchy application – even with the matte shades.

Mario Dedivanovic, Master Palette, The Master Palette by Makeup by Mario, Makeup by Mario Master Palette, Anastasia Beverly Hills, ABH, palette, eye shadow palette, makeup, beauty, swatches,

I haven’t been using much makeup lately so I was very excited to dip into the palette and create a look.  On my eyes I’m using a blend of Violeta and Isabel in the crease and as my transition shade, Marina on the lid and blended up towards the crease, Muse blended into the outer v and Hollywood as an inner corner highlight and to highlight a little on my brow bone.

Let’s face it, as a makeup addict, I can honestly say that you can NEVER have enough neutral palettes.  But I’m so happy with this palette.  It’s not your average, every day neutral palette – it’s definitely a master piece created by a master artist.  The Master Palette by Mario is a gorgeous palette with beautiful and stunning shades that will work with any skin tone, eye color and age and I think it’s definitely an essential to any makeup lovers collection.  This will be my go-to travel palette and I think it will be a favorite for years to come.  Of course, it helps that I have a personal connection to the palette and the artist, so I’m proud to sport this palette and use it with pride.

Here’s a little glimpse of Mario’s instagram – a slideshow he created.  Take a look, you might see someone you know in the mix. 😉

The palette is gorgeous and I definitely suggest checking it out and seeing for yourself. It should be available at select Ulta and Sephora stores if it has been sold out online at Anastasia Beverly Hills.  I do think it’s a must have for anyone, but I think after hearing about Mario’s humble beginnings and how he started as a makeup artist won my heart over more than anything.  Nonetheless, if you have the opportunity to check it out and pick up one for yourself… do it!

I don’t use a lot of makeup during the summer time and lately I have found that I have really been enjoying a simple look – mascara and lip balm.  But, after getting my hands on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette, I’ve really been enjoying working with it and creating looks.  Contrary to how it looks, this palette is much more than a pink toned palette like it seems.  I’ve been loving the combination of warm tones to create showstopping looks.  Today I share with you a look I created using mainly this palette with a little pop of color on my lower lash line with ColourPop’s Flower Shop (from their Spring / Summer collection).  I’ll be sharing this look with you as well as swatches of the palette and more.  Be sure to click on the video if you want to chit chat with me and watch me GRWM when I create this look.

Let’s chit chat about this palette first before we get into the whole makeup look, shall we?  The Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette retails for $42.00 and includes 14 beautiful shades appropriate for any time of year.  This palette also includes a duo-ended brush to help create those stunning looks.

I purchased this palette with a little help via an online site called Octer.com.  Octer is a cool platform to help with online shopping, making it possible and easy to shop no matter the device you use – whether you’re browsing on your smartphone, tablet or desktop.  Octer lists the biggest US stores and 8,000 brands across all verticals and fashion from everyone like Topshop, ASOS, Farfetch and Net-A-Porter.  Octer has been live since November and has a feature which helps consumers find the right product at the right price.  It’s easy to use and as simple as searching your favorite type of product – housewares, clothes, accessories, makeup and more.

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette is an essential eye shadow collection that includes a variety of neutral and berry tones.  It’s the first permanent palette in the ABH line – which I love, since so many of the palettes I own from her were Limited Editions.  This palette includes gorgeously pigmented shades that offer you the opportunity to create endless looks for daytime and evening.  I am absolutely in love with the pigmentation of each color even if some of them did kick up a bit of dust and a little bit of fall out it’s a beautifully pigmented palette.  At first glance, this eye shadow palette looks like it would be too berry or too pink to create many looks, but I have found that I’ve been able to create a variety of looks with the shades.

The palette has faux suede packaging that make it feel really nice and soft and so far it has been easy to clean.  I love that each name is listed under the individual shades – which is always a great thing in any eye shadow palette.  The magnetic closure seals the palette up tightly, but not too tight as to make it difficult to open and close.  The mirror is a good size and this palette really offers a variety of shades for your money and make it a good travel palette.  I’m impressed overall with this palette, the packaging and the shades.

To create my look I used the neutral tones in the Modern Renaissance Palette to create the base of my makeup look.  For the pop of color, I decided that I would use Flower Shop from ColourPop as a little pop of color on the lower lash line.  Of course, you could totally utilize one of the berry shades in it’s place to really make the look pop.

It seems like it’s been quite a while since I’ve shown my face in a makeup look or tutorial or anything along those lines.  As much as I love makeup, I love a bare face so much more and besides a little tinted lip color or lip balm and some mascara, I haven’t been really using much makeup lately.  With the boys out on Summer break and I feeling like a needed a little refresh, I figured I would pull out some makeup products I haven’t touched in a while and a few that I have been loving and bronze the heck out of my face while adding some glow and a little pop of color.  My GRWM video which you can click and watch here (also embedded below) is quite long since I’m chatting and talking it up like girlfriends do, so if you want the shorter version, just keep reading.  If you want to come hang out with me and talk story for 30 minutes or so, hey, grab something to drink – cup of joe or a glass of somethin’ and click play.

Like most of my makeup looks, I didn’t really give it any thought and just pulled at different cosmetics to create something I knew was functional and that I could use during the day.  It seems like a really long time since I utilized my Milani Bella Eyes Gel Shadows, so I figured I would grab those and make use of them.  Frankly, I just really wanted to use Bella Khaki – it’s such a gorgeous color and I just don’t use it as much as I should.  If you are looking for a soft pop of color, a shade like Bella Khaki is gorgeous for that kind of look – it’s a gorgeous green with a light gold shift so it works really well with a bronze or neutral eye look.

This eye look may require some additional layering, but it’s very easy to create and I love that you really can’t screw it up – it’s all about layering and blending.  You can certainly use this look without lashes and it would still be very wearable for every day – but since my lashes are pretty much non-existent, well – it was a given that I pop some wispies on and call it a day.

** The photos were taken with my phone, so I hope they offer a good visual for anyone reading.  Video also filmed with my phone.

That’s pretty much it.  The look is simple and easy to create and like I mentioned earlier, I do have a video that walks you through the steps if you’re interested in learning how I did it.  It’s a long one as I chat about my life at the moment and explain each step – so if you’re interested in hanging out with me, grab your favorite drink and watch the video embedded above or click here to watch directly on YouTube.

What about you… do you rock out a bronze look as summer season hits?  Comment below and let me know.

Valentine’s Day is a holiday filled with soft pinks and sweet kisses and as a tradition, each year I have created a Valentine’s Day look using the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palettes.  This year I decided I would go ahead and do a “GRWM” Style makeup look that features the newly released Too Faced Bon Bons Palette and add it to my tradition.  “Just Call Me Sweetheart” is a soft and sweet Valentine’s Day look that can be used day or night but it is an easy look to create that features a little pop of pink that’s subtle with a little sexy.  I hope you enjoy this look.  Check out the video below and hang out and talk story as I get ready and create this Valentine’s Day look.

Creating this look meant it needed to be quick and easy.  From start to finish I say it took me about 25 minutes to complete.  I wanted this to be a wearable makeup look that could be used for day or night.  If you want to spice things up a bit – you could surely add a pair of flirty false lashes to the look to make it a bit more glam, but I opted to go for my mini lashes (natural lashes) and the look was complete.  To create this look I used the following products:

  • Eye brows:  Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil and Taupe Brow Powder set with BDB Brow Gel
  • Eye shadow base / primer:  Milani Eye Primer
  • Eye shadow palette – Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette, shadows used:  Divinity (all over the lid from lash line to brow bone), Mocha (transition shade), Molasses Chip (lid), Bordeaux (outer v / outer corner and lower lash line), Dark Truffle (used to deepen the outer corner), Totally Fetch (lower lash line blended with Bordeaux), Satin Sheets (inner corner highlight), Divinity and Cashew Chew (brow bone highlight)
  • Mascara:  Essence Get Big!  Lashes Volume Boost in Waterproof (black)
  • Eyeliner:  Milani Kohl Kajal Eyeliner
  • Foundation:  PUR Hydra Fluid Water Serum Foundation in Tan (I don’t use foundation normally, but I’m trying this one out… so if you want, you can opt to go without foundation as I would normally).
  • Blush:  Too Faced Love Flush Blush Palette – Blush in Love Hangover
  • Lips:  Jordana Twist Up Lip Liner in Rock-n-Rose, topped and layered with ColourPop Lippy Stix in Lumiere and Milani Matte Naked Color Statement Lipstick.  Later in the day, I switched up my lips and added ColourPop’s Bumble for all day smooch-proof lips.

When I created this, I wanted this look to be soft with a pop of color so I opted to use fluffy brushes to apply and put down most of the shades on my eyes.  If you really wanted to you could use a more defined brush for precision but I really wanted the eyes to look diffused so each shade was applied using a blending brush except for the lid shade which I used a pretty large eye shadow brush to lay down the shade.

If pink is not your favorite color for the lips, you could opt for a nude lip shade and it would still do very well with the eye look.  Play around with colors and see what you think will work for your skin tone and your overall look.

After being in the Beauty Industry for quite a bit of years, I have seen makeup trends come and go and others return like hot cakes smothered in syrup.  Did I just say that?  Yes – because I’m craving hot cakes… but regardless, like all things popular – some stick around and stand the tests of time while others may disappear or die down a bit only to make another appearance and become popular once again.   In the course of the last year, I have seen techniques used in the beauty industry years before that are now making a comeback, like contouring, strobing (exaggerated highlighting) and now baking.  These techniques that were once used only for special occasions or typically for Television, Runway and Shows is now making its way to the forefront.  I remember a time when “Baking, Strobing and Contouring” was what I used to make over my Drag Community friends and now I see it everywhere and becoming a popular technique used for every day.  While it’s not something I would use daily, I think it is still a useful technique and can be used for great purpose.  Today we are talking all about baking makeup, so grab a cup of joe (or a plate of hot cakes & syrup) and let’s chit chat about it.

The Baking Makeup Technique - Bake Your Face In 5 Easy Steps

Today I am going to share with you some quick tips on the baking makeup technique and how to do it.  But first, let’s find out what the heck this “baking” is all about.  Baking is a technique of highlighting and setting your makeup to give it a glow that is flawless but without a shimmer or glittery effect that you would typically get from regular highlight (like strobing).  Baking allows the wearer to to give your face an illuminated/brightened appearance that will last and not crease with a matte finish.  Here are my tips on what to do… follow along and try it for yourself.

The Baking Makeup Technique - Bake Your Face In 5 Easy Steps

Products you need:

While baking can technically be done with any type of cosmetics you have on hand, I’m using these from Amazing Cosmetics which you can find at Ulta Beauty.

  • Moisturizer or eye cream
  • Concealer – if you are particularly looking for a brighter under eye look, a concealer lighter than your skin tone is best – by a few shades.
  • Beauty Blender
  • Cosmetic sponge
  • Translucent Powder – loose works well, but use what you have.  I’m using a pressed powder
  • fluffy brush – used to apply the translucent sponge and to swipe the excess powder away
  • Setting Spray or mineral mist

Steps to baking:

  1. HYDRATE: Since this technique will leave you with a matte finish – it is essential that you hydrate and moisturize accordingly.  I have really dry skin so I make sure to hydrate my under eyes so that the extra powder you are using does not settle into any wrinkles or under eye circles.
  2. Apply your concealer to your under eyes.  I like to make sure I’m applying my concealer (preferably something creamy or liquid like so it blends easily) in a upside down triangle shape.  Using your damp cosmetic sponge, blend the product out so that it is evenly distributed – blending effortlessly.  A creamy or thick concealer works best.  Try Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer – I used the one in Light Caramel.
  3. Using your translucent powder – apply over the concealer with a fluffy brush.  My favorite to use is my MAC 109 which will pack the color on and blend at the same time. The key here is to make sure you have enough powder to apply to your face where your concealer is.
  4. Bake / Cook your makeup!  Using a wedge or cosmetic sponge, dampen with a setting spray or mineral mist and then dip the sponge into your translucent powder.  Pack the loose powder generously over the area that you applied with your concealer.  If you are using a pressed compact, you may need to tap your brush into the product a lot to pick up product.  Wait 5 – 10 minutes while the powder sits and bakes.  During this time I like to start working on my eye makeup.  For the translucent powder I used Amazing Cosmetics Velvet Mineral Powder Set.
  5. With a fluffy brush, simply dust off the product on the face while blending to set your makeup.

The Baking Makeup Technique - Bake Your Face In 5 Easy Steps

When the baking is done and your makeup is complete, you’ll notice that you will not only have a flawless finish to your makeup application, but also have a highlighted appearance under eyes without that shimmery effect you can get from a glittery illuminator.  What I love about looks like these is that they give you that glowy appearance.  You can find all the products I mentioned at Ultabeauty.com. What’s great about makeup and makeup trends is that you decide what works for you and what doesn’t. Have fun with it, dress up and enjoy it!

Have you tried the baking / cooking makeup technique before? If so, will you be using this to strut your stuff this Fall and Winter season?  I look forward to seeing your recreations and looks so be sure to post a photo of your flawless look. #ultatrendalert #StyleHunters4Ulta

I can’t believe Halloween is just a few short weeks away and I’m a bit stressed that I haven’t started on any makeup looks yet.  I figured I would share some of my past Halloween Makeup Creations with all of you since many of them were posted on old blogs and hopefully spark a little inspiration and creativity for my looks this year.

Halloween Makeup Tutorials - A Round Up of Past Looks I've Created

Hawaiian Mermaid.  This look took a little while to create, but it was fun and I enjoyed it.  I am using pigments/mineral eye shadows to create this look, which I’m proud of since the shadows and lipstick were created by me when I owned my own Indie Cosmetic Company.

Halloween Makeup - A Round Up of Past Looks I've Created

When creating a mermaid look – you can decide how much or how little you want to go and I opted for a dramatic look.  I really think that the contacts I used made such a big difference in how it all came out for me.

Halloween Makeup Tutorials - A Round Up of Past Looks I've Created

Masquerade Mask – I really enjoyed created this look a few years ago.  The object of this look was to use makeup to create a mask on my face instead of using a real one.  I loved how it turned out and how simple it was to create.  If you’re looking for a last minute costume, this can work in a pinch.

Halloween Makeup - A Round Up of Past Looks I've Created

The Crazy Creepy Doll – This Halloween Makeup look will remind you of your childhood play things.  So cute and sweet with a little twist.  This doll has come back to play and haunt you.  I had so much fun creating this look and doing the intro for the video which you can find here.  As sweet and cute as she looks, she’s here to make your life miserable.  Creating this look is simple – just do up your makeup with soft shades and then add some accessories that will make it scary.  If you are planning to use a knife or similar, makeup sure that you have a fake or plastic toy one for going out in public.

Halloween Makeup - A Round Up of Past Looks I've Created

Sexy Glamour Kitty is one of my favorite looks created over the years.  It’s simple and with a little cat ears or leopard ears and some creative thinking, you can easily have a look for Halloween that is fun and fast to do.  A gold smoky eye, bold vampy like lips and leopard spots – the look came together quickly and easily.  This look was so popular it was featured on many sites, including Ipsy and you can find the tutorial for this look here on my old YouTube Channel.

Halloween Makeup - A Round Up of Past Looks I've Created

What makes this Leopard Kitty looks so easy is that you can pull accessories like your favorite jewelry or wear that little black dress you love and a pair of sexy heels and the look will come together easily.  Leopard ears are so easy to find and cost just a few dollars, so you have a quick costume that’s affordable to create.

Halloween Makeup - A Round Up of Past Looks I've Created

Poison Ivy – This look was never fully completed for a tutorial, but something I threw together to utilize the red wig I had.  I simply just drew vines with makeup and eye liners on my face, added green around the eyes and put in a pair of green contacts.  The look came together quickly and easily.  If you wanted to really make this look more realistic, adding ivy leaves as a crown or similar would make this look complete.  When and if I should complete this look to where I wanted it to go, I will be sure to post an update.

Halloween Makeup - A Round Up of Past Looks I've Created

This look is simple and you can use what you already have on hand.  A red wig can also be purchased reasonably priced and you can add a long skinny black dress or tights with this look to finish it off and make it show stopping.

Halloween Makeup - A Round Up of Past Looks I've Created

Sugar Skull – Dia de los Muertos Day of the Dead is one of my favorite looks that I have created over the years.  I created this look using different cosmetic products – even the white face was created using the lightest color foundation I had in my kit.  This look is one of my favorites because it allows you to be creative in your own and the designs never are set in stone – you can do whatever you choose.  The tutorial for this look can be found here.  I hope to create another version of this look this year utilizing different colors I’ve been wanting to try out.

Bonnie parker 7

Bonnie Parker –  Bonnie & Clyde:  This look was not done necessarily for Halloween.  I created it as a part of the Bonnie & Clyde Movie Release and thought this was such a great one to share.  It’s simple, easy to create and one of my favorites.  With a soft smoky eye and a deep red lip – you are good to go.

Bonnie parker 3

Of course, props work when creating a look – so I opted for what we already had on hand… and make sure that you are not using a real gun while out in public.  This look is still one of my favorites and the eye and lip look is something I’ve developed into my own and use often.

OITNB Sophia Burset

Sophia Burset – Laverne Cox, Orange is the New Black – the complete look and tutorial can be found here.  This look was inspired by Orange is the New Black – which has become one of my favorite shows.  Simple to create and easy to rock out.  Creating a nice eye look, berry lips and putting on some scrubs will make this look complete.  Don’t forget your plastic fork to comb your hair with.

orange is the new black sophia burset thumbnail

Celebrity looks are easy to create and Halloween is all about a little fun and creativity anyway.  The options are endless and there is so much you can do with makeup alone – even if it means a simple smoky eye.

halloween makeup forest nymph

Queen of the Forest Nymph – If you shop through my Halloween Stash, you’ll see I have my fair share of fairy wings and this is why.  One of my favorite things are fairies and when I created this look, I wanted to really have something that I loved represented.  Tutorial can be found here.  This look is easy to create and really just takes a little imagination.

Queen of the Forest Nymphs

What makes whimsical creatures so fun to create for Halloween is that they are all about your imagination and what you can come up with.  I wanted this Forest Nymph look to really stand out as someone in nature and by adding greens and gold I was able to really create that look that I was shooting for.

Dark Alice in Wonderland

Dark Alice – Alice in Wonderland:  This look was fun to create.  I went for a gothic / dark vibe to create this look and all I did for the eyes was create a deep vampy makeup look and added black lips.  If you are really stumped for a costume, something like this is really simple and easy to do.  A full list of products used and tutorial can be found here.

Twilight Autumn Woodland Faerie

Twilight the Autumn Woodland Fairy – a full list of products and tutorial on this look can be found here.

Once Upon a Time Regina the Queen

Regina The Evil Queen – Once Upon a Time:  Quite possibly one of the favorites I have done over the years.  This look is simple and I pulled out some of the clothes I already had as well as a crown and cape and then created the makeup to look that the character’s.  This look was so fun and I enjoyed filming the intro for the makeup tutorial as well which I think really made it one of the most favorite videos I have created.

Amazing Spiderman

Amazing Spiderman inspired – This look was all about the colors and using them as inspiration for the eye look.  The creepy spider on the cheek, well – that’s just the webbing on the cake… lol

Halloween Skull Makeup

Skull Mask – This look was my last minute creation for last year’s Halloween Day look.  I’m not gonna lie… I did my eye makeup and realized I didn’t want to take it off or ruin it so I decided to plan my costume around it.  Hey, it worked… it had the scare factor, but was a show stopper.

Halloween is about having fun and being creative and of course, all the candy you collect (thankfully I can still take part in that with my sons).  Each year I enjoy creating looks that are either simple or unique and I wanted to share them with all of you.  As a child my family didn’t have much money and I learned that by taking the tools we already had and a little creativity and we could have fun and awesome costumes.  I’m very thankful that my parents instilled this into me, because I teach my children that same concept.

I hope to have some Halloween looks posted for all of you soon – I’m working on some ideas.  In the meantime, I thought I would share some of my past ones and all the fun I had over the years.  Have fun and enjoy yourselves, no matter the age and you will have a grand time.  What are you doing this Halloween?  Do you have a costume in mind?  Which of my past Halloween looks are your favorites?

Thank you to Mary Kay® and SheKnows/BlogHer for sponsoring this post.

I have been a long time Project Runway and Mary Kay® addict, so I was beyond ecstatic to have the opportunity to share with all of you two stunning looks featured on Project Runway using Mary Kay® Cosmetics. When creating Runway looks, it is key to be able to complete the look in a timely manner but also to create a look that is show stopping and fashion ready. Today I will share with you two gorgeous looks and the products used to create each. These looks were created by Mary Kay® Global Makeup Artist, Luis Casco and were featured on Project Runway. They are easy and simple, but most important, they are classic and can be used at anytime or season. With Mary Kay® being the official beauty sponsor for Project Runway, I feel privileged to be able to share my take on these looks for all of you. Here are my takes on each look and the steps I took to create them.

Runway Ready With Mary Kay - Official Beauty Sponsor of Project Runway!

The first is the Sculpted Look that focuses on the lips and brows. I wanted my lips to be the focus on this look since burgundy lip shades really give my lips a gorgeous plump look. Creating this look was so easy and the products included make it quick and perfect for any time of the day. Runway Ready With Mary Kay - Official Beauty Sponsor of Project Runway!

I started the look by using the Mechanical Brow Liner in Blond ($11) to fill in my brows. I followed the natural growth of my hair and swept the liner in short strokes to provide a natural looking brow that looked defined. I then took Hazelnut Mineral Eye Color ($8) and with the Eye Smudger Brush ($10), I applied that to the highest points of my brows to add a little more color and depth for emphasis on the arch. To keep my brows in place all day I used the Brow Gel ($10) to set them for long wear. Runway Ready With Mary Kay - Official Beauty Sponsor of Project Runway!

To keep with the theme of this look, I went with the soft eyes so that the lips would be the statement. Taking Rosegold Mineral Eye Color ($8) with my finger, I applied the color on my eye-lid and then used the Eye Color Brush ($10) to blend. Using the same brush, I then add Crystalline Mineral Eye Color ($8) as the highlighter under the brow to create a little contrast. To finish off the eye look, I used the Black Pencil Liner ($12) to apply liner to the base of my upper lashes and lightly on my lower lash line to shape my eyes. Then, I completed the eye look with two coats of one of my all time favorite mascaras: Lash Love Mascara in Black ($15) from Mary Kay®. Runway Ready With Mary Kay - Official Beauty Sponsor of Project Runway!

To finish the look and bring it all together was easy. I applied the Mineral Cheek Color Duo ($18) in Juicy Guava (which is a gorgeous summer shade) to the cheeks with the Cheek Brush ($14) and blended perfectly to create a soft cheek kissed look. Then applied the highlighter shade to the high points of my cheekbones to brighten the face and a light dusting all over to add a little depth. Once that was done, I applied True Dimensions Lipstick in Spice ‘N’ Nice ($18) to the lips and to add a little definition and sculpting, I lightly lined my lips with Dark Chocolate Lip Liner ($12) and blended with the lipstick. Using the Beauty Blotter tissue ($6), I blotted my lips to create a long lasting semi-matte look that helped to make my lips look plump and juicy.

Runway Ready With Mary Kay - Official Beauty Sponsor of Project Runway!

The next look is perfect for summer but can be used year round to add a Bronze Glow to your face. The focus on this look is the eyes and cheeks, creating a very subtle but bronzed look that gives you that sun-kissed glow. Like the first look, this one is very easy to achieve and Mary Kay® has all the products to create a look that is stunning and flawless. Runway Ready With Mary Kay - Official Beauty Sponsor of Project Runway!

To create this look, I first started off with the Powder Brush ($16) and applied the light shimmery Bronzing Powder ($18) in Light-Medium to the high points of the face that the sun would naturally hit to create that sun-kissed look. Since this bronzer is lighter than what I would normally use for contouring, it is perfect to add a subtle but show-stopping bronzed glow all over my face. To create a little depth and drama to my cheeks, I then added the Mineral Cheek Duo ($18) in Spiced Poppy over the bronzer with the Cheek Brush. Finishing with the highlighter shade on top of the cheek to give a little shine.

Runway Ready With Mary Kay - Official Beauty Sponsor of Project Runway!

To create the eyes, I used the Eye Color Brush ($10) and swept Amber Blaze ($8) and Gold Coast Mineral Eye Colors ($8) to the eyelid. I applied Amber Blaze to the inner corner of my eyes sweeping in and blending with Gold Coast which I applied all over the lid. I then took Precious Pink Mineral Eye Color ($8) to the crease to add a bit of definition, but also to add a little more warmth to the look. Finishing off the eyes by adding the Mary Kay® Gel Eyeliner (which I am loving) in Jet Black ($18) to the base and upper lashes and with the product that is left on the brush, lightly sweeping the last of the product onto my lower lash line to create more drama. Finishing the eye look with a few coats of one of my favorite mascaras Lash Love Lengthening Mascara ($15) from Mary Kay® and the eyes are complete.

To finish the entire look, I added a hint of metallic shimmer to the lips with NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss ($15) in Beach Bronze. This gloss gave my lips a plump look but also offered a little shine. It is comfortable to wear on the lips and perfect for those Summer Beach Bronze looks or year round. As I mentioned previously, each look is simple to create and takes little to no effort. These are perfect looks for the runway and for anyone looking for a little drama in their lives to make a statement. Since I have a warm skin tone, any of these looks are definitely easy for me to use, and I especially enjoy both of them for how easy they are to create, but also how little time it took me to get it done. As a mother, getting ready and doing a full face of makeup in 10 minutes is ideal and any of these looks can easily be accomplished in that time. Runway Ready With Mary Kay - Official Beauty Sponsor of Project Runway!

I have been a long time lover of Mary Kay® cosmetics and over the years I have watched their cosmetic line grow tremendously to include products that are not only made with quality but products that also keep up with the trends and color profiles we see on the market today. As I mentioned, some of the products I used to create these looks like the Mary Kay® Lash Love and Lash Love Lengthening Mascaras are some of my holy grail products I have used for years and the Gel Eye liner has recently become a favorite of mine. While these looks are easy to create, use your love for makeup and experiment to create your own takes on each look. Make it your own and love it.

I’m naturally a busy bee so when I am looking to create fierce looking eye makeup – I not only have to do it quickly, but it needs to be pretty easy as well.  Over the years I have found that a soft brown smoky eye or even a purple or burgundy hued one is my best play on eye looks to bring out my brown eyes, but lately I’ve been digging adding grey hues to the mix and found that this look could definitely be a showstopper.  Today I bring to you a Smoldering Smoky, Easy Smoky Eye featuring the Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Palette.  It’s my first true makeup look using this particular palette so I hope you enjoy.

Smoldering Smoky - Easy Smoky Eye Featuring Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Palette
A complete step by step walk-through tutorial can be found in the video embedded below or you can click here to watch directly on YouTube.

I began this look by applying my Milani Eye Shadow primer all over the lid and onto the lower lash line.  Then taking my Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Palette – I swept Laetus all over the lid. Samael was then applied as my transition shade and blended towards my browbone to blend the highlight shade and transition effortlessly.  Saleos was applied onto my lid with patting motions and a domed eye shadow brush followed with Solas which was applied on the top of Saleos to soften the shade.  Then I applied Solas into my crease and added Succubus to give the look a more blended and darker effect.

Using the Milani Kohl Kajal liner, I lined my upper and lower lash line and waterline.  Then used the deep shades from the Kat Von D palette to smoke out and smudge the liner to create a softer look.  I then used Latinus to highlight my browbone and applied Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening mascara and Ardell Demi Whispies lashes.

Smoldering Smoky - Easy Smoky Eye Featuring Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Palette

To add light definition and contour to my face, I used my NYX Matte Bronzer in Deep and added warmth to my face.  I am using Milani Rose Powder Blush in Warm Petals to add a little warmth and color to my face and finished with Becca Shimmering Face Perfector in Champagne Pop for highlight.  For my lips I am using ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Trap with a little of Tulle topped to give a little different hue.

Smoldering Smoky - Easy Smoky Eye Featuring Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Palette

This look is a bit bold, but still wearable and so quick and easy to create.  Don’t forget to check out my tutorial for the deets and I hope you enjoyed this.  It’s been a while since I have done something quite bold, but I had a lot of fun doing so.  I’m totally diggin’ the Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Palette and I’m having fun trying out new combinations.

Have a wonderful day!

Let me be real with you all for a second… when asked, “What is your no makeup makeup look?”  I’ll straight up answer you with… “Um, no makeup – at all!”

But, It’s absolutely no secret that my every day makeup look (if I am using any makeup that is) is mascara and a lippy and on most days.  Since I really do not use makeup, but I want to add a little sexy to the mix, I’ll pull out my big guns, my heavy hitters… my HG products.  So today, in collaboration with a few gals from the Beauty Blogger Collab, I’m bringing to you my “no makeup” makeup look.  This is what I put on when I need a little swag in my look, but still want minimal makeup.  Of course, like I mentioned earlier – if you are looking for a look with literally no makeup, well – that works too 🙂

All About The Summer Glow, No Makeup - Makeup Look http://honeygirlsworld.com

So let’s chit chat a little about what my no-makeup makeup look is.  I definitely want to look polished and put together and it all starts with great skin and my skin care regime.  To give me that fresh dewy look that I love, I make sure to cleanse, add my favorite serums like Hyaluronic Acid and Anti-Wrinkle serum and then finish with a great moisturizer.  These products alone give me a natural glow and really freshen up my face and my look.  It’s essential that I do this each day to keep a youthful appearance.

All About The Summer Glow, No Makeup - Makeup Look http://honeygirlsworld.com

My basic and daily makeup products for me are mascara and lip balm so mascara and a lippy of choice is a definite must have.  My lashes are really short, so if I have clear eye lash glue on hand, I’ll slap on a pair of flirty false lashes, but today I opted for a few coats of mascara to help open up my eyes.  Since I have my eyeliner tattooed, adding mascara to my lashes not only opens my eyes more but also enhances my tattooed liner and makes my lash line look fuller.  My lips are another thing… if I am not pulling for a colored lip balm, I’m reaching for my favorite nude lippies to help enhance my pout.  Usually my no-makeup look would stop there, but if I want to add a little something extra, I’ll add a blush, highlight and a light contour.  Applying these with a light hand are key to get that sunkissed and radiant look that adds a little to your makeup but keeps them guessing if you have anything on.

Here are the products I used on my look today:

  • Brows – For my brows, since they are shaped fairly well and are full, I used my NYX Control Freak Eye Brow Gel.  (Review here)  I swept this product over my brows to set them in place for the day.
  • Lashes – Since I have short lashes, I like to layer certain mascaras to make my lashes stand out without false eyelashes.  Today I used my Covergirl Super Sizer mascara layered with Benefit’s Roller Lash.  These two lashes paired together help to give me some length and volume without looking spidery or clumpy.
  • Lips – One of my absolute go-to lippies for an “every day” or no-makeup look is MAC’s High Tea.  This lipstick is the perfect nude with a gloss texture and offers the perfect color to compliment my pout.
  • Bronzer – To add a little warmth, a light bronze and some subtle contouring I used Laura Geller’s Bronze-n-Brighten Baked Color Correcting Bronzer in medium.  Using a domed bronzing brush I light dust this all over the areas I want to give a subtle bronze look.  It’s not about contouring but more about a light definition.
  • Blush & Highlight – For a little color to my cheeks and a soft highlight I used my Laura Geller Blush-N-Brighten in Como.  This combination has a blend of pink and gold to offer the perfect amount of color to your cheeks and a gorgeous peach gold highlight so the sun looks like it is perfectly kisses your cheeks.  With a fluffy brush I lightly dust this on the applies of my cheeks and blend onto my cheek bone.
  • Set your makeup – To set and put that nice dewy look back into my face, I spritz on one of my favorite facial sprays.  Today I used my Evian Mineral Water Spray.  Since it is warm, this is perfect to cool me down but also give my makeup that effortless, no-makeup look.

All About The Summer Glow, No Makeup - Makeup Look http://honeygirlsworld.com

My normal “no-makeup” makeup look is pretty easy and simple to create but it puts a little pep in my step and still gives me that “put together” look without using too much.  If I go with a basic look (mascara and lippy) or add a little blush, bronze & highlight – it’s something you can definitely see me rocking out most of the time.  If I were asked what my go-to look for Summer is, this is it.

So what are your favorite go-to’s to create that “no-makeup”?  When I say “no makeup” I mean it, but sometimes we could use a little style and flair to our look, don’t you think?  Be sure to stop by and check out the links below for the no-makeup makeup looks of the lovely ladies from the Beauty Blogger Collab.

Woohoo – Spring is starting to show its colors and I’m loving the scent of the sweet smelling flora that’s blooming near me.  When I think of Spring, I think of bright shades, hot neon tones and simple looks that make a statement.  Today I bring to you a Spring inspired makeup look along with my girls from the Beauty Blogger Collaboration.  This look features the bright and bold shades from the Urban Decay Electric palette – it’s debut here on my site and YouTube channel.  This look, while offering a bold statement – is quite easy to achieve and I hope you enjoy it!  Welcome Spring!

Be sure to check out my tutorial (embedded below) on how to create this look, or click here to watch it directly on YouTube.

This is the first time I have used the Electric Palette for a makeup look posted to my blog or YouTube channel so when I thought about the look I wanted to create for this collaboration, it immediately stood out to me as the makeup I wanted to use.  This look is bold… and as a child of the 80s, it reminds me of big haired rocker bands or bermuda shorts with bold neon shades.  I absolutely love it.

From four leaf clovers to large pots of gold… Saint Patrick’s Day has been filled with fun for all – not just the Irish.  While I believe that a persons’ luck comes from hard work, I also believe in good luck as well… and you can still find me searching for a four leaf clover or wondering if there really is a pot of gold at the end of that rainbow.   In years past I have celebrated with fun makeup looks and bold bright greens but this year, I wanted it to be something anyone could wear… a look that was simple to recreate but still offers a statement.  Today I bring to you my St. Patrick’s Day makeup and nails, in collaboration with the beauties from The Beauty Blogger Collab.  Be sure to stop by and check out all the pretty looks these ladies have created and show them some love too.

I filmed a tutorial for my eye look which you can find here, or check out the video embedded below.  The steps are easy and I’m using a mixture of drugstore and high end product to create it.

St. Patrick's Day Makeup

Now,  wasn’t about to leave out my nail loving friends.  We all know I’m a bit nail art challenged, so I went with what I know.  To create this simple nail look, I used China Glaze Rare & Radiant which is a Color Shift / duo chrome type of polish that goes between green and gold with a slight blue hue.  I topped that polish off with ILNP’s Supernova flakies polish to add to the crazy green and gold effect.  If you are a bit nail art challenged as I am, I think something simple like that will work.  It kind of reminds me of Mardi Gras. lol

It’s no secret that I’m a romantic at heart and I’m pretty lucky to have found a fairy tale love “Happily Ever After”,  which is something people search for their entire lives and never find.  So while I believe that love should be celebrated every single day of our lives, I am a fan of a day that celebrates hearts, chocolates, flowers and pretty things.

It’s time for another Valentine’s Day makeup look and this time I am using a combination of Milani and Jordana Cosmetics for a budget friendly, drug store look you can create quickly and easily.  Since my last Valentine’s Day makeup look (click here to view) included browns and bronze shades, I wanted to bring out the playful side of Valentine’s Day offering up a soft purple and rose gold look that would be perfect for a lunch date or stroll at the park.  In collaboration with my friend Beth, we are once again doing date night looks, her look will include drugstore products for an evening look and mine for a daytime look.  Check out the video below for a talk through (Get Ready With Me) style video or click here to watch directly on YouTube.  Details of my Cupcakes & Hearts Valentine’s Day Makeup can be found below.

Valentine's Day makeup look featuring Milani and Jordana

I enjoyed creating this look and wanted it to have a pop of color but also be soft and wearable.  If you have brown eyes like I do – the purple on the lower lash line will certainly bring out the brightness in your eyes almost instantly.  The color choices I picked reminded me of cupcakes and conversation hearts and I think this would make a great look for anyone with any skin tone shade.

NOTHING TO DISCLOSE

 

Roses, candy, kisses and love… sweet nothings and candle light are all things that remind me of Valentine’s day.  Each year I look forward to creating a new look for this day of love and this year I am creating a Valentine’s Day Makeup tutorial in collaboration with my friend Beth.

Her look will be for daytime,mine for nighttime.

I went with a soft smoky, wearable look that can easily be created.  The reason behind this look is that I wanted it to showcase the lips and soften the eyes.  I’m 35 (as of January) and wanted to create a look that beauties in their 30s and 40s could wear easily and apply quickly.  Check out the Video Tutorial embedded below or click here to watch it directly on YouTube.

To create this look, I am using the following products:

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance – eye primer
  • Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette – eye shadows (Peanut butter – transition shade, Coconut Creme (browbone highlight), Truffled (applied into the crease), Bon bon (lid shade), Peanut butter / truffled (lower lash line), Caramel (inner corner highlight)
  • Jordana 12 Hour Made to Last Waterproof Gel Pencil in Black Point – tightline and waterline
  • Jordana 12 Hour Made to Last Waterproof Gel Pencil in Espresso Last – upper lash line
  • Benefit They’re Real Mascara and L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga mascara

Too Faced Valentine's Day Makeup Tutorial

If you are looking to bump up this look a bit for some extra drama, add a pair of whispies or dramatic lashes to the eyes and a bold berry or even bright pink lip.  A red lip can work with this look as well.
