LOTD: Dramatic Arabic Cat-Eye Makeup!

Hey lovelies! 😀 Today’s face is something really dramatic, and almost un-wearable, but I think that if your bold enough you could wear it to a party or for a night out. I wasn’t super happy on how it turned out, but hey not every look does. 😉 Also, this look is not for the faint-hearted, or the beginning artist. You will need skills with eyeliner to make this look great! Here it is then:

All I used was: a black pencil eyeliner, a duo-chrome blue/brown eyeshadow, and a matte brow bone highlight. (and black mascara). SIMPLE! 😀 Hope you liked this one!

Next post: SURPRISE POST (so stay tuned) 😉

LOTD: Glamorous Work Look

Hey lovelies! 😀 Today’s look is a super-easy, and quick reddish-brown look for work! I love how it turned out, and I’m excited to share, so here it is:

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

I used Sephora, Inglot, and MAC products for the look.

Even though this look seems like it should take a long time to do in the morning, it only takes 5-10 minutes to achieve on weekday mornings, or whenever you do your makeup before work. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this look for work!!! 😀 (If you want to see a tutorial, let me know)! Later!-Lucy 😀

Hey! I have exciting news! I would like to announce that I have been nominated for the Liebster Award! 😀 The lovely Michele from trendybelleblog nominated me, and I am so grateful. 🙂

The Liebster award is for blogs with 200 or less followers: Here are the rules:

  1. Each nominee must link back the person who nominated them.
  2.  Answer the 10 questions which are given to you by the nominator.

  4.  Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
  5. Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them

Michele’s questions, answered:

Michele: If you had to describe your style in one word, what word would you choose and why?

Lucy: Variety. Everyday, I wear something a little different. I find that if I don’t, I’ll get a little board. 😉

Michele: If you could trade places with any person in the world for just one day, who would it be?

Lucy: Maybe a famous makeup artist like Bobbi Brown, just to see how much fun, or how hectic the job could be. 🙂

Michele: What is your dream job?

Lucy: There are a few different ones I have in mind: Makeup Artist, Singer, or/and an Actress.

Michele: Who was your first celebrity crush?

Lucy: Hmm..Even though I keep myself up-dated with who’s-who, I didn’t really every have a celeb crush… 😀 (although, I will have to say, at one point I was a little obsessed with 1D) haha 😉

Michele: If you got to plan your dream vacation, where would you go?

Lucy: I would either say France or Italy. France just seems like a fabulous place, very elegant. 🙂 Italy is where half of my family is from, so that would be very interesting to vacation there.

Michele: What is your favorite trend right now?

Lucy: Neon colors. I’ve always liked them, and how they say ‘look at me, I’m making a statement!’ 😀

Michele: What is your favorite song at the moment?

Lucy: ‘When I Was You’re Man’ by Bruno Mars. I love to sing it everywhere. I also love the songs from Wicked, the Broadway show; I love singing the part of Glinda, while my sister sings Elphaba. 😀

Michele: What is your go to beauty item that you couldn’t live without?

Lucy: Haha, well you might have noticed, that I’m kind of in love with all makeup, and couldn’t possibly choose one, but if my life depended on it, I would choose Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara in Blackest Black. On a day were I don’t want to wear eyeshadow, lip color, or fill in my brows, Mascara is definently the product that can make the face look simply made-up.

Michele: What is something you’d like to do before you die?

Lucy: I would say, be either in a movie or a Broadway Musical. Those things could probably come true anyway, so I’m not worried about not being able to achieve those goals. 😉

Michele: If you could travel back in time and live in any decade, which would you choose?

Lucy: Maybe the Victorian age. Where you would get to wear dresses and fancy makeup each day! (I guess I might get tired of it, but it sounds fun now)! ;D
