LOTD: Spring Smokey Look

Hi cuties! 😀 I hope you all had an amazing weekend. It was my Dad’s birthday on Sunday, and we had so much fun playing card games at the table. (we tend to be very competitive, hehe 😉 )

So, Spring is all about looking fresh and glowy. Pastels, soft pink, and highlighter are important things at this time of year. This is NOT the time for classic smokey eyes, and strong black liner. But this doesn’t mean that you can’t wear smokey looks in Spring. Here is something using rosy hues on the crease, light lids, and smokey off-black winged liner. (Off-black is much softer and better for the Spring time than true black).

So here is the look:

I hope you enjoyed this look, and found this somewhat adding to your Spring look options! 😀

Transform Your Lips!

Hi again loves! 😀 So, I know a lot of gals have thin lips, and are unhappy with them. I have medium/full lips, so I don’t know how you feel exactly, but I personally think that thin lips are so gorgeous! 😀 If you still want to play around with a bit of lip enlarging, I made a tutorial:

Image

From this, to this:

Image

It’s not a humongous difference, but that’s the look I was going for, only a slight enlarging.

Here is a simple, few step tutorial on how to achieve this effect:

Image

Step 1: on an everyday basis, you need to just apply a simple, moisturizing lip balm. My favorites are: Vaseline, Burt’s Bees, and Blistex DCT. Do NOT use Carmex, it only dries out the lips. Also, once a week, exfoliate the lips. Here are 2 inexpensive options: Use the Elf Lip Exfoliator, only $2, or use a pinch of normal, plain sugar. So, anyway, just start with a smooth, clean lip canvas.

Image

Step 2: Line your lippies with a nude lip liner. I used Maybelline’s Nude. Begin by outlining your natural shape, and then fill in, Te continue to outline, going slightly out of your natural lip shape.

Image

Step 3: next, take a darker lip liner, and go over the same shape. I used L’Oreal Infallible Lip Liner in Red/Wine.

Image

Step 4: apply a matching lipstick over the slightly exaggerated shape. I used Mary Kay Signature Lipstick in Cinnamon Twist.

Image

Step 5: finish the lips off with some gloss. I used my favorite lip gloss, Mentha Lip Tint in Violet Mint. 

Helpful Tips:

  • gloss makes the lips look bigger.
  • darker colors make the lips look smaller. (if you have thin lips, but want to try a dark color, slightly over-draw your lip shape)
  • If you have exaggerated your lip shape, make sure to use lip liner so that the shape lasts.
  • Be EXTREMELY careful not to make it obvious that you’e over drawn. It will look terrible.
  • in your free time, PRACTICE. You can’t just try this trick for your very first time, and walk out the door. Practice is VERY important!

I hop this was helpful!

4.  Make up 10 questions for your nominees

Chelsi’s Questions:

1. Who is your favorite celebrity for their makeup? Hmmm…I’ve loved a lot of Celebrity’s makeup looks, but I’d have to say Christina Aguilera.

2. Natural makeup or glam makeup? It depends, but I would say most the time, glam. 🙂

3. One makeup product you can’t live without? I would have to say my Wet n’ Wild Big Bold Curl Mascara! It’s amazing! Check out the review here.

4. Favorite skin care product? I love the Clean and Clear Oil-Free Moisturizer Gel. It’s really nice and refreshing. The only thing I don’t love about it is that it doesn’t have any SPF in it.

5. What is you go-to accessory? My diamond cross that my dad got me for Christmas a couple years ago.

6. Which season is your favorite for fashion? I love this question! 😀 But I can’t figure out an answer….I love Summer and Winter Fashions, but I also enjoy the other seasons for fashion purposes.
