Black Cat Comic Halloween Tutorial

October 28, 2015

 

 

Black-Cat-

This year I got super inspired to create Halloween Makeup looks, looking like Im straight out of a comic! My son is super into comics so of course I had to create these looks for him. I asked him which one I should do first and he said Black Cat. So here it is.

Products Used:

You can typically find these face paints at any halloween store.

for all the black paint, I either used black eyeliner from MAC or face paint (which is a little easier to control) Krylon Palette I got from Naimies. 

Lips: Merlot Lipstick from Dose Of Colors, you want to get a long lasting lipstick so it doesn’t smear throughout your night.

Contacts are from juststylemeboutique.com

Wig is from a Halloween store, cost about $20.00

Brushes: I always use brushes from Morphe Brushes.

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! -.-

Hope you enjoyed this simple inexpensive way to organize your lipsticks!

Happy Organizing!

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.

GET THE LOOK

_______________________________________

 

20140115-105436.jpg

To get this look I used a palette from Tarte Cosmetics  .

1. Use an eye shadow primer, I used the 12 hour creaseless primer form Tarte. >here<

2. I used “Taj Mahal” ( top left) all over my lid

3. Then defined my crease with “Grand Canyon” ( top right) 

4. I highlighted the center of my waterline with their inner rim brightner. ( my ALL time favorites) >here<

5. Then I smoked out The green “central park” with a pencil brush right below my lash line. 

6. To soften the green up a little more, I blended “Big Ben” (bottom left) right below it with a blending brush.

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.
