LOTD: Brightening, Minimal Everyday Makeup

Hey Crazies! If you didn’t see my last post, I was taking a short break because my family and I were moving, and then going out of town and it was too stressful to blog. But I’m back in the swing of things, so let’s just get right into this look.

Today’s look is this natural, everyday look, but it’s super eye opening, and very brightening for tired skin and eyes. Hope you like it! It’s very simple, using minimal products, so it’s very easy to create. 🙂

LOTD: Bright Summer Makeup

Hey Crazies!

Today’s look is my ‘classic Summer look’ which always includes gold and teal on the eyes and bright pink lips. I also tried a washed out nude shade to show what a nude shade would look like, but you know me, and I ended up with bright pink.

So here we go:

Everyday/Work Makeup For Summer!

Hi Crazies! 😀

Today’s makeup is super simple, quick, easy and everyday/work appropriate. I love the look, because you can do anything to it to add your own personal flare. I personally, love to add a light pop of color somewhere, so I did 2 different pops: gold and purple, the 2 no-fail colors for anyone! Hope you enjoy:

This is the look with the gold pop:

Prom Makeup: Copper Smoke

Hi lovelies! (stay tuned after this look for a post on a complete guide Prom Beauty!) 😀 Ok, so this look I am absolutely in LOVE with. I used copper, bronze, gold, honey tones, black, brown, and nude for this one, making this look gorgeous on everyone, especially those with blue eyes. I hope you enjoy:

ImageImage

Tutorial:

Image

1) Prime your eye area with Elf Eye Primer in Sheer.

Image

2) Apply a sheer gold base to the lid and crease. I used Elf Jumbo Eye Shadow Stick in Little Miss Thing. (blend out with finger).

Image

3) Add definition to the crease with a medium brown pencil. I used Elf Shimmer Eye Liner Pencil in the brown-gold shade. (apply with pencil).

Image

4) Blend out the pencil with the tip of a flat stiff brush.

Image

5) Apply Mattify! Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Earth Angel to the inner lid and inner corner with a small long flat brush.

Image

6) For the middle of the lid, apply a golden copper shade with the same small long flat brush. (I used a mix of 2 Shany Cosmetics eye shadows).

Image

7) With a crease brush, apply Makeup Geek’s Eye Shadow in Latte (a matte mid-tone brown) to the crease, blend.

Image

8) Warm and darken up the crease by using Makeup Geek’s Eye Shadow in Cocoa Bear ( a matte reddish brown) with a crease brush.

Image

9) Further darken the crease using Makeup Geek Bada Bing ( a dark gold sparkle brown) on a stiff flat brush.

Image

10) Wipe off that stiff flat brush, and blend.

Image

11) For the lower lash line, I went with MUG Shimma Shimma on the inner half, and Latte and Cocoa Bear on the outer half.

Image

12) I lined my upper and lower lash lines with Elf Cream Eyeliner in Black.

Image

13) Fill brows, and add black mascara, and you are gorgeously ready to go!
