2 Fall Makeup Looks

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Fall is here!:) I wish it wasn't still so hot outside, but at least I can start prepping with fun makeup. I created an easy makeup look that can be modified into different looks depending on your needs. The first look is a soft eye with a small wing and cranberry lipstick. The second intensifies the eyes with a black-matte eyeshadow and a darker wing. This one has a softer lip to set its focus on the eyes. I really hope you like it!

I wanted to share this week's nails with everyone! You can probably tell that I am so ready for fall by the colors! I love randomizing my nails. It just makes the nails more fun and chic... riiight?:) haha.

Hope you guys like this!

Here is what I used:

Beige- Finger Paints in Don't Make A Scene
Black- Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in Black Out
White- Finger Paints in Paper Mache

You can find Finger Paints at Sally's (Sally Beauty Supply). I get my Sally Hansen polishes from the Drug Store. I like Walmart the best because they usually have them a bit cheaper then other stores.

Let me know if you would like a nail tutorial!

Hello again!

Ok! So this lighting definitely doesn't show this lipstick's true color lol. It is identical to Mac's Whirl lip liner which has been raved about by everyone! (almost everyone). I wanted to find a lipstick that would match this color because just using a lip liner is a bit drying for my lips. If you get a chance to go to any store where they sell Lorac, swatch out Alter Ego Lipstick in "CEO", it is gorge! <3 Although this is a full makeup tutorial, I mostly want to focus on the lip color.

Here is my version of Kylie’s  look. It is going to be specially pretty for the upcoming fall.

This goes out to you!

Base  Mac – Paint Pot- Painterly
Lorac Pro Palette (1st Edition) Colors: 
- Cream (Brow bone area) 
- Taupe (Lid area) 
- Gold(Lid area)

Naked 2 Palette          
- Snakebite (Outer lid area)

[Blend the Sable color well! Her look isn't very dramatic so we want it to be more soft.]

Liquid Eyeliner Lorac Front of the Line black liner. This line has a very thin tip great for a wing. It is very easy to control!

Bottom Eyeliner- She's not wearing much eyeliner in this look so I just added a tiny bit. I sprayed my brush with Mac Fix Plus and dipped it in some "Snakebite" from the Naked 2 Palette. Make sure you don't get that waterline. This will just give a small dark haze below the eyes.

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless

 Liner Mac Whirl
 Lipstick Lorac Alter Ego lipstick in color CEO 

This lipstick smells delicious just like vanilla. It is very comparable to a Mac Lipstick] Both the liner and lipstick are almost identical and look very much to the one she has. You can also fill in your lips with a liner. I prefer using the lipstick as the liner dries my lips a bit.

Here are some pictures taken in a more natural light setting that really show the color of this lipstick:

And that's it! It is a very simple yet well-put-together look. I hope you liked it!

Hellooooo my beautiful viewers!

Today I finally bring to you what I do to conceal my stubborn dark circles. I will only show you the concealing I do and a tad bit of foundation (no flush or bronzer). 

WARNING! this may look a bit bright since it is not a full makeup routine and just concealer lol.

 I have also added a highlight!

Here's what you need to know about my skin:
Combination- Oily on the T-Zone (nose and forehead), fine lines under the eyes, and dark under eye area.

You do not have to go out and purchase these products, this is just what has worked for me and hopefully it can work for you!:)

Let's a get starteeed!


    Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (using: Custard)
    • Highlighting shade
    • This one is more of a skin-like texture
    • Not too matte nor dewy
    • It is the perfect satin finish
  • Concealers
Can you tell I like this one? Almost gone!:(
To really conceal those dark circles make sure you
 get a "salmon" shade or a "NW" shade.
This will help prep the eyes so that your
concealer doesn't look ashy :P
I am using the shade NW 30
  • You will need a foundation. Any favorite you have will work!

  • Setting Powder

This one is bareMinerals Well Rested Loose Powder.
It comes in a universal shade.

  • Tools

Damp Beauty Blender and her little baby
A brush to set your powder.
I am using RealTechniques Setting Brush.

Ok, now for reals, let's get started...

1) Begin with a clean-moisturized face

2) Start applying the MAC concealer in the warm-salmon shade with Beauty Blender Mini.
Since this is a warm-salmon shade, it will help conceal the dark under the eyes. So you will need to apply foundation or a highlighting concealer over it. Otherwise, it will oxidize and you will end up with a salmon circle around your eye area after it dries.

 3) Apply foundation. If you are applying a concealer afterwards to highlight, avoid the area you've just applied concealer to. Otherwise, you can apply it all over including the area you've concealed.

4) I'm going to be highlighting...mehh hehh! So I am now apply the Nars Concealer.

5) I know! Almost done! Now just set everything with the powder.

6) Voila! Beautiful right? Ok maybe not haha but I luuuuv the result!

This will last me all day. I only touch up my oily areas which are the t-zones with a powder.

If you choose to splurge on 1 of these items and can only choose 1, I highly recommend the MAC Prolongwear as it is long lasting! You can use any highlighting concealer to add on top or even use your foundation on top if you don't want to highlight.

Here are my drugstore alternatives to the Nars and the bareMinerals. I have yet to find one for the MAC concealer, it's just too purfect!

Maybelline Lumi Concealer. I am in the shade "Nude".

Neautrogena Shine Control Powder. This is a universal shade.

So this is it guys! I really hope you liked it and got something out of it:) See you soon!

P.S. No filters were used in any images

Coming Very Soon!

Do you have dark circles? The ones that are here to stay and for good?

Me too!

I have found the most lovely products that help disguise them the entire day. My eyes do crease a lot and yes they can look grey if I don't use the right concealer. I will soon be posting my most favorite products to hide these bad boys and my application routine.  I hope you enjoy!:)
