Hi, my awesome readers! I have so much fun playing with makeup and makeup looks, and sometimes I have a hard time finding reviews, swatches of makeup, or makeup looks for pale redheads. (Hey, natural redheads may be less than 2% of the general population, but we still want great makeup too!)
So, I thought I’d share more of my makeup looks on the actual blog (instead of just my instagram). It’s definitely not going to be every day, really just whenever I feel like sharing (and I have the time to snap a photo!). Don’t worry – nails and nail art will still be the main focus of this blog! That’s my first love and I’m still passionate about it.
For today’s look, I’ve used
- On my brow bone, Wet n Wild “base” from the Smoke & Melrose set
- On my eyelid, Wet n Wild “crease” from the Smoke & Melrose set
- In the outside vee, I’ve used TEEEZ Cosmetics in Sweet Sins
- Blush is Glamour Doll Eyes in Midlife Crisis
- Bronzer is Buxom Cosmetics in Tahiti
- Eyeliner is Milani Liquid Eye in 05 Brown
- Mascara is Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless in 001 Black (prize)
Smoke & Melrose is such a great 5-pan palette; I picked it up this summer/fall on a sale for $1.99. I do have a bit of fall out, but honestly, it’s a rocking palette for the money! Sweet Sins is a great duo chrome kind of shade: from a blue/green shade to a purplish red shade. It does have quite a bit of fall out though!
Lastly on my lips is NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi:
Abu Dhabi is a bit more tan toned – not as orange as the picture shows. This is a fairly recent purchase, and my first Soft Matte Lip Cream from NYX. It does dry with a matte finish (uh derrr Jessica!), and it ends up drying out my lips after about 30 minutes or so.
I know my pictures aren’t the best, and I need to practice with color accuracy. I don’t photoshop or edit my photos other than cropping and adding my watermark. Keep in mind that I’m not a professional makeup artist (and I don’t claim to be). Please stick with me as I (hopefully) get better at this! 🙂
If you have any suggestions on what you’d like to see in a makeup post (please don’t say less of my face, LOL!) or just want to say hi, then please comment below. Thanks for stopping by!
