I’ll be honest, I forgot to write down everything I’ve used! It’s been forever and a day since I last was able to share a makeup look with you. I really really really love the end result! Continue reading
Hey everyone! I was going to have this post up earlier today but alas, laundry had to get done, and yard work (last nice day for awhile), and other nail polishes swatches. Sigh. But now that I have a moment to myself, I wanted to show you my makeup look from last week. I wish I would have taken a picture of my hair – it’s becoming one of my favorite “fancy” dos – an upside down Dutch braid into a braided bun.
For my lips, I blended together Bite Beauty in Beetroot with NARS Cruella.
I used Teeez Cosmetics eyeshadow in Sweet Sins on my lid up to my crease, then used a gold & pink shadow from Wet N Wild Fergie Centerstage eyeshadow palette Milano Collections.
Sweet Sins has a really pretty duochrome look to it that’s so hard to capture on camera!
I love doing my makeup and sharing my looks with you – it really is something that’s soothing to me, much like doing my nails. I hope you like to see different looks too! I just received (as a gift) some Kat Von D Studded X lip & nail duos and I hope to share those with you next weekend. They are so gorgeous! Here’s a teaser pic from instagram:
Until the next time!
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!
