Above you can see this 3 in 1 cotton set I purchased from The Dollar Tree. Take out the cotton swabs, cotton pads, and cotton balls. You can save everything in here, place them in mason jars and put them in your restroom to use.

Lay the plastic trays throughout the drawer, organize them in color or texture,

you can fit 4 lipsticks into one square. This is only a 1/4 of my lipsticks,

I will probably need 2 drawers to organize everything! -.-

Pop Art Lips

POP ART

 

Today I wanted to do something fun and different.

This is clearly just for fun and not something

someone would wear out for the day. 

Step 1: Line your lips with a deep red liner.

Step 2: Fill in your lips with BESO lip gloss from Stila Cosmetics.

(this is a matte gloss that doesn’t transfer)

Step 3: with an angle brush line your lips with black eyeliner, I

used the black liner from Morphe.

Step 4: Color inside your lips with the same black liner.

Step 5: with Clown Cake from Ben Nye draw on a couple lines to make it cartoon like.

And there you have it, FUN Pop Art Lips!

I have a quick tutorial on my instagram check it out here.

Blue Eyeliner

May 1, 2014

20140501-151653.jpg

BLUE

I’m loving the color blue right now! it just reminds me of summer and vacation! 

 

20140501-151759.jpg

Tip:  how to make your blue eye liner stand out! You create the eyeliner first with white eyeliner.

Then apply the blue eyeliner right on top of that. The blue eye liner will look a lot brighter!

Take it to the next level and add some royal blue glitter from Lime Crime. :) 

20140501-151949.jpg

What I used:

1. Base of eye liner: I used a white creamy gel pencil liner from LA girls cosmetics

2. Mixing anastasia beauty genius with LA girl Spectra Blue liner i applied it right to the outer part of my

cat eye using a thin eyeliner brush.

3. Then I mixed a little beauty genius with lime crime’s blue glitter and added it to my eyeliner. :)

4. Topped the look off with Ardell edgy #402 and Demi Wispies.

5. For my Brows I used Anastasia pro palette, ebony and soft brown.

see you in the next post!

Have an amazing Day!

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 

20131026-142712.jpg

I finished the look using House of Lashes in Feline. 

20131026-142853.jpg

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!

20131026-143254.jpg

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

Adeles Grammy Makeup Tutorial

February 16, 2012

Adele looked STUNNING at the Grammys! She was by far best all around with her makeup, hair, gown! I can just go on and on about how gorgeous she looked. So my picture is a little exposed due to the flash but if you watch the video I recreated EXACTLY how Adeles makeup looked for the red carpet and for her performance! She went for the classic old Hollywood look and she pulled it off perfectly!

I love that she made this album from her past experience with an EX. We all have those “bad” experiences but the fact her album was successful her EX must be kicking himself in the butt right now! hahah I love it!

So here is the 2nd look. All her makeup Artist did was add a little bit more color to her crease and instead of her bright red lip they gave her more of a natural pink lipstick.

Click on the video below to see how to get this look and what products to use!

Hope you all LOVE it! For more of my videos click go to youtube.com/LadyArt7 (click on link).

 

XOXO,
