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.

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.

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.

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.

Spring flowers and refreshing showers!  I am so excited Spring is finally here.  For me, Spring is the time of year where I embrace my more natural side wearing minimal makeup or a soft eye look that looks effortless and is easy to create.  Since I’m a busy mom and constantly on the run, I am always on the hunt for a makeup look and brand that will provide me “easy mommy makeup” that caters to my style and my skin’s needs.  Today, I have teamed up with the lovely ladies of The Beauty Council in collaboration with Glo Minerals to bring you gorgeous Spring looks for the season.

Glo Minerals

TBC HEADER LOGO150x35
With my sensitive skin, I’m constantly adapting to new products or changing my needs as I feel required.  The same goes for makeup for when the seasons change, so does my makeup routine.  From deep, sultry, smoky eyes I tend to switch things up a bit and concentrate on looks that are quick, effortless and allow me to be done in a hurry.  Most of my Spring routine consists of mascara and a lippy or a soft highlight, but when time allows, I love to add just a touch of drama to pull the look all together.

Boho Chic Makeup with Glo Minerals
For my look today I chose to use Glo Minerals for a soft and sweet Boho Chic inspired look.  This look is all about the blending and each shade is applied with a blending brush to create a soft look that is both wearable and easy.  The goal for this look is to create added dimension while still giving your overall appearance an almost “no makeup” look.

As with any of my makeup looks, I start with a moisturized face that also includes sunscreen since I plan to take advantage of the sunshine that Spring shared with us.  Since I do not use foundation, I started on with my eye makeup.

Glo Minerals Eye Shadows

Next, I applied an eye shadow primer to my eye lids to keep my eye shadow in place so it will last all day and night through the warmer  and humid weather.  I used Glo Minerals Eye Shadows in Twig (blended into my crease and used as transition between my crease and browbone shade), Haze (swept under my brow bone for a natural highlight) and Sand Pebble (applied on my lid and inner corner for a soft shimmery pop of color) and Orchid (blended softly into my crease to create definition).

Once I finished applying the eye shadow, to keep with a more natural look, I decided I would apply two coats of my favorite mascara and let my lashes peek through instead of applying eye liner like I would normally.

Glo Minerals blush

To add a soft touch of flush to my cheeks, I applied Glo Minerals Blush in Papaya.  With a fluffy brush I swept the shade over the apples of my cheeks, blending it out so that the shade would offer a soft kissed glow to the look.

Glo Minerals Candle Dual Shimmer

For a soft glow and a little highlight, I took a soft large face brush and swirled both sides together of the Glo Minerals Candle Dual Shimmer compact.  With a light hand I swept the brush along my cheek bones for the perfect highlight.

A cool note is that Glo donates a portion of the proceeds from sales of the Candle Dual Shimmer to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Way to Go!

Glo Minerals Suede Matte Stick

To add a subtle shade to my puckers, I used Glo Minerals Suede Matte Stick in Bliss and applied directly to my lips.  This lipstick feels like satin on the lips, applies wonderfully and has lasting color.  If you are a matte lipstick lover like I am, you will surely love this one.  It’s a great nude if you want something to add a little “Your lips but better” to your pout.

Conditioning ingredients include:  Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Mango Seed Oil and Shea Butter.

Since I have really sensitive skin I am always looking for products that provide great skin loving benefits.  Glo Minerals offers mineral makeup that is designed especially for skincare professionals and their clients.  Their formulations provide coverage, UV and environmental protection and offer a wide spectrum of mineral pigments.  Each product is formulated without Talc and since they are non-comedogenic, Glo Minerals is an ideal choice for me and my sensitive skin.

Since my skin can go crazy on me while transitioning between seasons, I’m always looking for a cosmetic product that will not cause it to stress out.  I am loving the powerful blend of antioxidants Vitamins A, C, E and Green Tea Extract that you can find in their products as well as UVA and UVB broad spectrum sun protection.  These products are definitely a great addition to anyone’s makeup arsenal, but for me, I find these make for great wearable shades and provide my skin with the love it needs during the Spring months and year round.

What I love is that Glo Minerals is perfect for different skin tones and ages.  Looking for more inspiration?  The lovely ladies of The Beauty Council have also put together wonderful looks and pictorials using Glo Minerals.  Search hashtags: #glominerals #thebeautycouncil and #getGLOing on Social Media for photos and links and check out what they have in store for you too.

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!

Electric Avenue spring makeup look

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.

Electric Avenue spring makeup look

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

St. Patrick's Day inspired nails

I hope you guys enjoyed my inspired makeup and nail look for St. Patty’s Day.  I wanted both to be easy to create for anyone and you can’t go wrong with something that takes a few minutes to complete.  Don’t forget to stop by my video and check out the tutorial for the makeup look if you haven’t already – you can find that here.  Stop by my Instagram and keep up with me there for new photos, posted daily and be sure to say hi on Twitter and Facebook too.

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.

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.” – Audrey Hepburn

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.

Don’t forget to stop by my YouTube video and check out the step by step talk through.  And, head on over to my friend Beth’s Blog and check out the look she created to use for a night time date look using drugstore cosmetics as well.  Happy Valentine’s Day loves!  Wishing you a wonderful day filled with love and a lifetime of “Happily Ever After!” Smooches!

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. I bring to you a quick look featuring Too Faced and the semi-sweet Chocolate bar palette and Beth will be creating a look using the chocolate bar Palette. 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
  • Benefit Hoola Bronzer (light bronze, all over warmth)
  • Too Faced Sweetheart Blush in Candy Glow
  • Hourglass Dim Light Ambient Lighting Powder for a light highlight glow

  • Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick in Peony
  • Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick in Nude
  • Chrislie Formulations Brow Gel in Caramel (swept over the brows for a natural look)

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.

For New Year’s Eve looks, I usually will add in something blue or silver, but this year I decided I would use blue and gold as accents in my look – more so for my outfit.  My little sister Harmony found me the perfect scarf that is not only fashionable but cozy and warm.  Since I figured out the accessory for my look, I opted to go for a romantic look featuring warm bronze and brown shades and created a smoky, sexy, sultry eye look with nude lips to compliment my scarf.

For those of you that are looking for an eye look that will have a bold statement without having a bold color like blue or silver shadow, I think this would be a great look.  Check out my video tutorial embedded below or click here to watch directly on YouTube.  All products used as well as photos are posted below.

Romantic Sparkle New Year's Eve Makeup look

My goal for this look was to ensure it would be easy to create, but that it would last through the Holiday festivities.  Eating, drinking and talking… sipping on some Crystal… spending time and popping fireworks with our children.  I paired this look with a soft nude lip because I knew it would be low maintenance and easy to reapply if needed.  I also wanted to add warmth and drama to the eyes.  This sexy smoky eye is easy to achieve but definitely something that will work with all eye colors and add some sexy to your New Year’s Eve look.

For months I had planned to do an easy Holiday Glam Look for Christmas and before I knew it, we were already in December and I had to get with it.  This look really is all about the lips and I wanted it to be bold and show stopping.  I think red lips are sexy and sultry and offer such a wonderful touch to complete your holiday makeup looks.  For this tutorial I bring to you an Easy Holiday Glam Makeup look featuring soft eyes and red lips.

Easy Holiday Glam Makeup

For this look, I used my Lorac Mega Pro Palette.  I really wish Lorac makes this palette permanent as it is one of my favorites now and I love the color range.  Check out my step by step makeup tutorial in the video embedded below or click here to watch it directly on YouTube.

  • Eye liners – Jordana Cosmetics 12 Hour Made to Last Liquid Eye Pencil in Black Point (applied to tightline/waterline) and Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper applied to create upper lash line liner and wing.

Easy Holiday Glam Makeup

This look is really simple to create and all the drama is in the lips.  If you are not fond of red lips, you can always switch this look up with any lip color you choose.  What I enjoy is that the shades I chose for this look are really complimentary to most eye shades and skin tones.  It’s a soft-wearable look and has a lot of Glam and drama once you add the bold red lip.  I hope you guys enjoyed this look.

Wishing you all a happy holiday season!

Fall Berry Smokey Eye

On Halloween I did a makeup look that really sparked a lot of interest… woohoo – it’s nice to do something right for once. lol  I was actually rushing through the eye look so I could do the skull makeup look but the eye makeup look is what caught the attention of everyone and I was asked to do a tutorial.  Now mind you, I’ve been sick pretty much since Halloween, so I haven’t had the chance to really get the tutorial up and when I finally decided to get it going… it turned out much longer than I would have liked.  But, oh well – I digress and move forward.  So since I was feeling like I needed to put some makeup on, I decided to “dress my face” – see what I did there? And, now… onto the tutorial.  It’s a long one because I am chit chatting and talking through all the steps.  Click here to watch directly on YouTube.  All details on the products used as well as photos are posted below.  I hope you all enjoy this Fall Berry Smoky Eye.

Hope you liked my talk through – now onto the photos and all the details.

Fall Berry Smokey Eye

 

Products used:

  • Coastal Scents Step One Eye Primer
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Dress Your Face Palette – Sangria (used in the brows and on the lid), Bengal (used as transition shade), Chocolate (used in the crease), China Rose (used on the inner third of the eye lid), Noir (used to deepen the outer V), Fresh (used to highlight the browbone) and Venezia (the pop of color used on the inner corner of the eyes).
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette – Iridescent Purple (used on the brows as well as the lower lash line), Legend (used to highlight my cheekbones).

In the original eye look for Halloween, I used a blend of Sangria (Tamanna) and Iridescent Purple (Amrezy) but for this specific tutorial I only used Iridescent Purple.  So sorry about that, I just wasn’t feeling well and forgot to add Sangria.

  • Tarte Smolder-eyes Pencil in Fig (used as a base for Sangria and applied on the lower lash line)
  • Jordana 12 Hour Made To Last Liquid Pencil Liner in Black Point (applied to waterline/tightline)
  • New York Color (NYC) Liquid Eye liner in Black (used to create the winged liner)
  • Jordana Best Lash Volumizing Mascara (upper and lower lashes)
  • Kiss EZ Lashes in 11 – false lashes
  • NYX Matte Lip Cream in Istanbul (applied to my lips)
  • Paula Dorf 2+1 For Brows (used to create the shape and define the tail and arch of my brows)

Fall Berry Smokey Eye

I know I said this earlier but this look is very easy to create.  It’s just about layering colors, color placement and of course the colors you choose.  While I didn’t get a chance to do so – you can certainly pair this look with a darker lip shade like a berry or wine or even a nice berry pink.  Nude was the choice I went with because it was right within my reach and I wasn’t feeling very well, otherwise I may have chosen to go for a berry shade myself.

Fall Berry Smokey Eye

Now for the fashion sense, I wasn’t feeling quite well but I do what I always love to do during the Fall and Winter months and that’s throw on a beanie or scarf and rock it out.  On this day I decided a beanie and a pair of gold hoop earrings would suffice.  I also have on a t-shirt… adorned with big bold letters that describe me to a “t”. lol

Fall Berry Smokey Eye

My shirt was custom made by me at HICustom.com in their design lab.  I’ll be sure to have more information on the brand and about the company in a later post.  I’m using a pair of jeans – which is my go to during the colder months.

Fall Berry Smokey Eye

I hope you guys enjoyed this super easy look.  I will have a review on the Tamanna Palette coming soon so stay tuned for that.  Wishing you all the best of these chilly months to come. xo

“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” – Alice in Wonderland

I bring to you my final Halloween Makeup tutorial for the year.  This one is in collaboration with some of my favorite beauty bloggers (you can check out their links below).  We wanted to have a little fun and create looks inspired by fairy tales.  I chose to do Alice in Wonderland but decided instead of a standard Alice, I would embrace the Halloween spirit and create a “Dark Alice” – a little sultry, sexy and gothic, I wanted to create an Alice that would fit with the Halloween theme.  I hope you enjoy the tutorial and I wish you all a safe and fun Happy Halloween.  And without further adieu, here is my Gothic Alice in Wonderland makeup look.

Dark Alice in Wonderland
Products used to create this look:
  • Coastal Scents Step One Eye Primer – applied to my lid from lash line to brow bone as well as lower lash line.
  • Tarte Smolder Eyes Shadow Pencil in Brown – applied to lid blended from lid into crease.  Also applied to lower lash line as a base.
  • The Balm’s Nude Tude Palette – Sultry (transition and blended onto lower lash line), Sleek (lid shade blended on lid and into the crease and also applied to lower lash line), Sexy (blended into transition shade and crease and also applied to lower lash line to smoke out the line)
  • Milani Bella Eyes in Bella Ivory – Brow bone highlight
  • BH Party Girl Palette – Red Shade (applied above crease and blended as part of transition shade to deepen the red hue, also applied to lower lash line to add the similar hue)
  • Jordana 12 Hour Made to Last Pencil in Black Point to line the lower lash line, waterline and tightline.  This was also used to line my lips.
  • Milani Bella Eyes in Bella Chiffon – inner corner highlight
  • MAC Sunbasque blush – applied to cheeks and blended to cheek bones to create a more defined cheek look without contouring.
  • Wet n Wild Fergie Lipstick in Pagan Angel – applied to lips.  This lipstick is creamy but can sink into the cracks of the lips, so be sure to exfoliate and moisturize lips first.
  • Lashes – Kiss 11 Lashes (whispie lashes) and Benefit They’re Real Mascara applied to lower lash line and to blend false lashes with real ones.
Gothic Alice in Wonderland
Accessories:
  • Wig was purchased from local costume store – Alter Ego Wigs
  • Necklace from Shoplately
  • Black Rose Stud Earrings – Handmade by me
  • Headband – basic black ribbon tied into bow (craft store)
Dark Alice in Wonderland
If you don’t have a white wig, a blond one will work as well.  I figured a white one would add to that “gothic” dark look so I chose to use it in this look.  Since I didn’t have a similar dress or top to what Alice wears in the movie and story books, I opted for a black dress.  Simple but still a bit dressy.  I definitely suggest keeping with the dark theme and wearing something black if you have it.
Dark Alice in Wonderland
I hope you enjoyed my makeup look.  I think this will be an easy one to create – simply create a dark and bold smoky eye with a dark bold lip or black lipstick.  Don’t forget to stop on by my friends’ links below and see their versions of fairy tale recreations.  Wishing you all a fabulous Halloween – be safe but have fun.  Smooches!

I love Halloween and dressing up but I realized that it is a good thing to do a simple look for those that may be finished with work late or that don’t have much time to spend on creating their costume.  Head on over to your local costume store and pick up a cape in the color of your choosing and throw it on with a fierce smoky eye or glittery eye look and your costume is complete.

I absolutely LOVE fairies, nymphs, pixies and mystical creatures.  It is a standing joke in my family that I was born a fairy and left on my parents doorstep to live out my life as a human.  I have a love for the forest and nature unsurpassed by few people and my soul always feels so comforted when I’m surrounded by Mother Nature’s gifts that I know I have fairy blood in my body.  Regardless, I embrace the sparkle, glitter and pixie dust and welcome it all with open hands.  There is nothing wrong with a little magic and mystical thoughts. lol

Each year I look forward to creating my Halloween tutorials and this year I decided I would go with a theme.  For this Theme, I decided to start with Honey, Queen of the Forest Nymphs.  Nymphs are generally regarded as divine spirits, known to animate nature.  Legends depict them as beautiful, young maidens who love to dance and sing.  Found to dwell in mountains and groves, near springs and rivers – they can be found in trees and grottoes and blend in with its forest surroundings.  This year I hope you enjoy the theme I have in store for you starting with the Queen of the Forest Nymph makeup tutorial.

Queen of the Forest Nymph

Check out my video Makeup tutorial embedded below or click here to watch it directly on YouTube.

I wanted this look that I created, or any looks I create for that matter to be simple and easy to create.  I tried to use a combination of drugstore and high end products – though the choice of what type of products you use is completely up to you.  My goal was to make this look attainable for anyone to create, but most importantly those that are not able to do face painting or special effects, they can easily create this look with the cosmetics they already had on hand.

Queen of the Forest Nymphs

 

Products used:

Benefit Porefessional used to minimize any pores and provide a canvas for the makeup we are going to apply.

Olay Total Effects 7-in-One CC Cream used to perfect my skin tone but also to provide a barrier for my skin against the products I’ll be adding.  Since my skin is sensitive, I wanted to make sure to have a product barrier to help protect against any sensitivities I may encounter.

Coastal Scents Step One Eye Primer used to prime my eye lids from lash line to brow bone and on my lower lash line.

HALLOWEEN MAKEUP - Honey, Queen of the Forest Nymphs Makeup Tutorial

Milani Brow & Eye Highlights in 03.  I used the Natural Taupe side to contour down the side of my nose and under my nose to give it a more defined look.  You can use a cream contour, bronzer or eye shadow or foundation that is a few shades lighter than your skin tone.

NYX Matte Bronzer in deep used to set the cream pencil I just applied as contour and to provide a deeper blended contour for my face.

NYX JESP in Horseradish used as a base for the pigments we will apply.

MAC’s Golden Olive Pigment (if you don’t have this, any golden green shadow will suffice.  I suggest using a loose shadow or pigment as this will allow you to easily apply with your fingers and blend as needed.)

Jordana 12 Hour Made to Last Liquid Eye Liner pencil in 06 Jade Jewel.  This was used as a base on my eyebrows to color and shade them in, define them and so that the shadow I used would adhere.

BH Cosmetics Party Girl Palette:

  1. I used the medium metallic green shade to apply over my brows and create a metallic green eyebrow look.
  2. I used a lighter green shade with metallic flecks to apply to my eyes with a blending brush as a transition shade.
  3. I used a yellow/orange shade to apply to the inner corner of my eye blending with the green in the transition and onto the inner part of my lower lash line.
  4. I used a matte brown shade with a fluffy crease blending brush to apply to my crease.  Blending out well.

NYX Roll On Shimmer in Salmon is applied around the edges of the mask (the green on the face) near the eyes and forehead to provide a little extra glitter.  I also blended this out well with my finger so that there was not a noticeable line.

Starlooks Pigment in Cinnamon Toss was applied with my finger to my eye lids and softly blended.  You can use a brush to apply this but I wanted this look to be simple and using my fingers is simple 🙂

Jordana 12 Hour Made to Last Eye Shadow Pencil in Stay On Black was used as my upper lash line and lower lash line liner.  Later I will go in with the NYC Liquid Eye liner to create the wing tail for my liner.

NYC Liquid Eye Liner to create swirls and dainty little designs that look like vines.  You can decide how you would like to do this, as I mention in the video – I didn’t plan this look out so I kind of just “winged” it where I could to create something that was girly and whimsical.

Queen of the Forest Nymphs

Buxom Lip gloss in White Russian was then applied to the lips to prep application for the MAC Golden Olive Pigment that will be placed on top.

Jordana’s 12 Hour Made to Last Eye Shadow Pencil in Endless Emerald was used to draw out some lines along the edges of the mask applied.  This will be blended out with a dark emerald green shadow from the BH Cosmetics Party Girl Palette and then blended with MAC’s Golden Olive Pigment.

NYX Candy Glitter Liner in Green was then applied in the leaves that I created using the eye liner.  This will add a pop of green that is a different and brighter shade than what I’m using on my face, but it will also add glitter and sparkle.

MAC’s Reflects Antique Gold was then applied with my finger as a part of my highlight on my brow bone and where ever I want to add glitter.  Little side note… if there is only one glitter pigment you could ever get from MAC… this should be it. One of my absolute favorites.

BH Cosmetics Party Girl Palette – I then take a Yellow shade with a fluffy blending brush and apply it to my lower lash line blending down towards the green shades and also apply above my brows – this really gives the look more depth and dimension.

MAC’s Golden Olive Pigment is then applied with my fingers to my lips to create a greenish gold lip shade.

Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara was added to my lashes and Red Cherry Lashes in #5 was applied with KISS Aloe Lash Glue.

Queen of the Forest Nymphs

Once the makeup is complete, I took down my hair and put on my Forest Nymph Crown and the look is complete.  I added a pair of blank wings and I put on a black strapless dress to complete the look.  If you have more time, adding some leaves would be an awesome way stage this look.  You can also sprinkle your pixie dust (glitter) all over to give your look a more whimsical touch.

I hope you enjoyed this look because I enjoyed creating it for you… even if I winged it and really didn’t know what to do until I started doing it.  I look forward to sharing more looks with all of you and thank you to all for your unending support. xo
