Been going through this phase of purple lipsticks. Maybe I feel like I need to match my hair color, haha.

I wanted to share one of my favorite color combinations right now.

Step 1: Apply Dark Secrets from Dose of Colors . directly in the middle of your lips.

Step 2: Next, line your lips with plum Lipliner and slightly fill the corner of your lips in.

Step 3: Press your lips together blending the colors together.

Matte Eyes

Im so in love with matte everything right now! I love how fresh and smooth it looks.

Doesn’t it look really soft? Im going to show you how I achieved this look with the

Tarte Cosmetics Matte Palette. 

Below is a close up of my Matte Eyes.

Step 1: apply a matte eyeshadow base, I used painterly from MAC this will help your eyeshadow from 

creasing throughout the day.

Step 2: You are going to apply the light shadow (#1 on the photo below)

to your entire lid using a flat brush.

Step 3: Using a fluffy blending brush you are going to apply the soft brown color

(#2 in the photo below) to your crease

Step 4: Using the brown shadow you are going to smoke that out

below your lower lash line using a pencil brush 

(#3 in the photo below).

To finish the look I applied brown gel liner from MAC with an angle brush.

Then applied #113 and #118 lashes from Ardell Lashes

(my new favorite combo)

Lips: Karma Lipstick and Sunshine kisses from Dose of colors.

Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills pomade in dark brown.

Romantic Day Look

January 6, 2014

20140106-093516.jpg

I posted this look a couple days ago on my instagram. @alanadawn 

I got this look using the Naked3 Palette. I haven’t really heard very many people

raving about theNaked3 Palette after it came out. But I actually enjoy the natural pinks

especially for my brides. In the next week I will show you how to get the best looks using

the Naked3 palette.

Step 1:  Apply an eyeshadow base, I used painterly paint pot from MAC, then I applied “buzz” on my lower lid. 

Step 2: Take a small brush and put “dust” in the inner corner of your eye to brighten up your eyes. 

Step 3: Using a tapered blending brush, Take “blackheart”  and apply it to your deep crease. 

Step 4: Then take “nooner” and apply it across your crease to blend the colors together. 

Step 5: Take “dip down” from MAC and create a winged shape liner across your upper lash line. Then smoke out “blackheart” across your lower lash line. 

Step 6: Finish up the look by applying Dose of Colors “show stopper” lashes.

Fall into Purples Pictorial

October 26, 2013

20131026-142304.jpg

Hello my Ladies!!!

Here is a look I did last week. I finally have a Saturday off and I am able to share

what I used to get this beautiful Fall Look. 

Above is a Step by Step pictorial. Making it easier for you to see

what I used and where I used it. :) 

Step 1. Use soft ochre paint pot from MAC and apply all over your lid, then apply matte bone shadow to your lower part of your lid using a flat brush

Step 2. using a tapered blending brush apply matte deep teal to the outer corner of your crease (your deep crease)

Step 3. With your #217 brush (its a stiffer blending brush) apply matte plum on your lower lid right before the matte deep teal. Now on your lower lid the gradient of colors should go from light to dark.

Step 4. using a tapered blending brush #224 from MAC, apply matte navy across your crease.

Step 5. Using the rim brightner from Tarte Cosmetics, apply in your waterline.

Step 6. Take Anastasia black covet liner and apply it to the inner and outer corner or your waterline.

Step 7. Lastly I winged out black liner on my upper lash line, I used urban decay 24/7  black liquid liner.

 

This is the NeutralEYES volume I from Tarte Cosmetics

I finished the look using House of Lashes in Feline.

To get nicely shaped brows I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Palette. 

BTW… Dont you love the separated eyeliner on my waterline?

I don’t like how the white eyeliner looks on me alone,I tried this look and love it!
