St. Patrick’s Day Look 2012

18 Mar

Hi Beauties…I trust that everyone had a beautiful and safe St. Patrick’s day. So I have to be honest, I usually have no idea when St. Patrick’s Day really is. I would be out at one of the neighborhood bars, and would randomly see people dressed in all green when I put two and two together. Every year I would say that looks fun….oh we should dress up next year (by dress up I clearly mean a Tee lol). Well, this year” I DID IT” and my husband and I had a ball. Here a few pics of my makeup for the festivities….FYI I was in a rush so I took pics with my Iphone. Hope you enjoy!!!

Youtube: How to Wear Subtle Eyeshadow Color

20 Sep

Hi Beauties….How many of you would like to step up your makeup look, but you are afraid of color? This video is perfect for you! If you are a little shy start off with a neutral color all over the lid, and get playful with your crease (bridge) color. This look is very easy to achieve, but I have to tell you do to the natural light in my Beauty Room it’s a little hard to see the true colors that were used so here is a list:

e.l.f  Cosmetics Liquid Primer- Champagne

MAC:(1st)Woodwinked** MUST HAVE NEUTRAL**

MAC:(2nd) Blue Brown Pigment

MAC: (3rd) Purple Pigment

BH Cosmetics 28 Neutral palette (4th) Vanilla Color (no name sorry)

***Please refer to the annotations during the video for specific brushes used***

Product Review: ELF Cosmetics

12 Aug

Hi Beauties…Happy Thursday!

As promised I wanted to share my thoughts on two ELF products that I purchased at Target earlier this week. I paid roughly $15 for both products and they are pretty good for the money!

Item # 1: ELF 100 Eyeshadow Palette $10

This palette was $$10 for 100 colors, so I had to try it! The colors are very rich and vibrant, but I  did find that some of the lighter colors went on very sheer so I would use primer and wet your brush before applying.

Over all I give this products 3 out 5 MUAH’s

based on price, packaging, and quality!

Item # 2: ELF Three Pack/Primer $3

Three Primers for $3 bucks…pretty decent hun? The package includes three shades: Nude, Pearl, and Champagne. I used the peach primer in the look below, and it worked just fine. More colors stayed in place and I didn’t experience any creasing!

I give this product 3 out of 5 MUAH’s

based on price, packaging, and quality!

Until next time Beauties…MUAH

FOTD: Peacoky Eyes

10 Aug

Hi Beauties….Today’s face of the day was inspired by rich jewel tone colors, much like the vibrant feathers of a Peacock from the ELF 100 eyeshadow palette. I took my grandfather to pick up a few things the other day in Target, so I casually browsed the cosmetic section. Target has a great selection beauty products. I found a large display of ELF products and went straight for the eyeshadows. I used their products before and felt they were pretty good for the money so I purchased a 100 eyeshadow palette ($10), and a 3pk of primer ($3).  SOOOOOO here is a look that I created with ELF EYESHADOW ONLY….I hope you like!
