Black&Yellow Liner

Yellow eyeliner! Who would’ve thought? My first thought was “Yellow liner? Ew no. Just no.”  But years ago I saw an Avon add with yellow and black eyeliner. I remember thinking it was so original and artsy, and actually really liked it! I couldn’t wait to try it from then on. Today, I finally did a post on it!

It sounds like something you can’t just wear out. But it’s really no more ‘stand-out’ than white or silver, and definitely no more than blue or purple. In fact, people have to look twice to realize it’s a wacky color! I think it’s a very nice color accent to brighten a look, and goes well with a black or grey outfit, neutral lips, and peachy blush.

Product(s):

– Yves Rocher Long Lasting Eye Pencil in Jaune Citron

– Maybelline Master Precise liquid liner in “Black”

– Maybelline The Colossal Smokey Eyes Volum’ Express mascara

– Lipsticks: L’Oreal Paris 802 “Captivating Copper” & Rimmel London 022 “Nostalgia” (Blended on top of each other)

– MAC powder blush in matte “Melba”

So here’s a very pink look you can try this year! A black, gray, or white sweater with a matching pink scarf would go nicely with this look.

The Ocean’s Calling Me…

So I like snow. I like it up till mid January. Then it’s over. I’m done. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to summer time, the blue water on the white sand, the white clouds against the blue sky. The leaves on the trees…. yeah, I guess I’ve made my point.

So here’s a makeup look that reminds me of the blue ocean and yet is a suitable winter party look:

Turquoise on the lid and bottom lashline…

Deep purple-based blue in the crease…

Black liquid liner and mascara…

Pink lipbalm and blush and you’re set.

It’s that simple.

My eyes nearly always look brown, but these blues brought out the green in there! I’m always afraid to go bold with eyeshadow, but when I do, I love it.

Wings Like An Eagle

So, I’m a BIG fan of  winged eyeliner. It’s a thick, long, winged line that creates a surprisingly simple look.

Normally I do not like brown anything for the eyes. I always prefer black eyeliner, black mascara, etc. But, I was taken by surprise this time… I LIKE it! A lot! It’s very natural.

(I’ll admit I don’t think I’ll ever go for brown mascara though…)

I got Annabelle’s Smudge Paint Eyeliner in “Sludge”. It’s a gel eyeliner that comes in a little pot with a liner brush. It goes on smoothly, and depending on how much you load the brush with, you can get any depth of color you want, from transparent to solid. The brush makes it easy to bring to a flick.

Yes I know this last photo isn’t the most flattering of me, but it gives a good idea of the simplicity of this look. Whatever….

Thank you for reading! (: xx

Naturally Smokey

So I have to say I’m confused a bit, because the look I made was with silver and dark grey. In the camera, with and without flash, it appears shimmery brown! It’s a bit frustrating. I can’t show you guys my real intention.

But it’s still a look, so I thought I’d post it anyways. Next time I’ll find better (out-door) lighting to bring out the true colors. Sorry about that!

How to:

1) Prime lid

2) Apply neutral shade over entire lid

3) Apply a dark grey in the outer corner, along the crease, and along your upper and lower lash lines.

4) Apply a shimmery silver to the ball of your lid and the inner corner

5) Line your upper lash line with black pencil liner

6) Apply mascara to top and bottom lashes

7) Set liner with black powder

YOU’RE ALL SET!

Feeling Feminine & Classy

American-Hustle-2013-with-Jennifer-Lawrence

Photo: http://www.buzzsugar.com/American-Hustle-Pictures-31058186

I am so in love with this look I cannot even explain. I am already a big fan of Jennifer Lawrence, and this photo just took my breath away.

(To get: Smokey eyes, heavy contour/blush, and neutral lips. The hair? Photo says it all.)

I am a big fan the good old-fashioned feminine beauty. I feel like it’s something that we’ve been losing these days. But….. it’s slowly coming back!

As a woman, I love dressing up! The red lipstick, jewelry, flowing skirts, fancy up-dos, etc. There’s no better time than fall/winter to bring out the bling!
