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!


One of my favorite things right now!!! Dose of Colors lip gloss, Sunshine Kisses. 


Until next time!!! Have a wonderful weekend!

Blue Eyeshadow Tutorial

May 16, 2013

Tutorial Thursdays

If you guys have been following me i LOVE doing colored eye shadow looks that are wearable. 

I also applies 2 different lashes to the same look so you can see the difference between a dramatic lash and a natural lash.

1. Apply an eyeshadow base all over your lid. I used painterly from MAC. This is a good base that you can use with any eye shadow color.

2. Take a black shadow, I used The black shadow from the Naked2 palette from Urban Decay but you can use any brand you have. Create a V shape at the outer corner of your eye.

3. With a blending brush apply a soft brown shadow to blend the colors together. I used texture from MAC.

4. Now with a flat brush apply Parrot Shadow from MAC right next to the black shadow. Note: apply only to the bottom half of your lid, don’t go above the crease.   

5.Usng a dark black kohl pencil apply it to your waterline. I used Smolder from MAC.  

6. Then create a winged eyeliner using urban decays 24/7 liquid eyeliner, perversion.

7.  Apply Lashes to your lash line. In the photo above I used  Double up Lashes #205 from Ardell Lashes


Im using more of a Natural Lash on the photo below. 

These are the lashes used in the photo above, I LOVE that they have more lashes on the end of the lash. Ardell Lashes Edgy #401 

And for those of you who ask what colors I use on the Anastasia Pro Palette. I use the darker color on the “dark brown” combo to line the bottom part of my brow and the darker color on the “strawburn” combo to fill in my brow.
