Wedding Guest Makeup! (including tutorial)

Hi Crazies! 😀

Recently, I got a request for a makeup look appropriate for a wedding guest. I used neutrals, and smoked the look out a bit. What’s great about this look is that it’s adjustable to your personal style, and this look also works on all eye shapes, colors, skin tones, and hair colors. Who doesn’t want a look like that? 🙂 I loved how this look turned out, and I hope you like it too!

LOTD: All Day, and All Night

Hi Crazies! 😀

Today’s makeup look is something dramatic, smokey, and trendy. I was inspired by the recent full moon, with the velvety blue sky. I used The Color Workshop for the look. I also made a tutorial, and let me know in the comments below if you want me to keep doing tutorials, and if they’re helpful! 😀

Image

Tutorial:

ImageImage

With a skin-tone foundation, and a sticky white base, (Sephora IRF in Light, NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk) prime the eyes.

ImageImage

Next, apply a medium brown eye shadow to the crease. (The Color Workshop Eye Shadow in Immortal). This will help with blending later on in the look. 

ImageImage

With a skin-tone eye shadow, highlight the brow bone. (The Color Workshop Eye Shadow in Show Me).

 ImageImage

Now for the star color: the sparkling navy. Apply this color to the lid. (TCW Eye Shadow in Ice Queen).

ImageImage

With NYX Milk, prime the lower lid.

Image

Smudge the same eye shadow onto the lower line.

ImageImage

With a gra eye shadow, smoke up the lower lid a bit more. (TCW Eyeshadow in Iceland).

ImageImage

With The Color Workshop Eyeshadow in Water Lily, I filled in my brows.

ImageImageImageImage

Then line the eyes with a liquid liner, apply mascara , and your done with the eye makeup!

Image

On the face, I just did blush, and I used TCW Blush Duo in Baby Kiss. And for the lips I used TCW Lip loss in Emily, and blotted the shine a bit. 

All done!

One Less Problem Without You

Hi Crazies!

Today’s makeup look is something real dramatic and funky. I love to take makeup and fashion inspiration from songs I listen to. I listen to a radio station that plays all of ‘today’s hits’ and I was sitting at my makeup desk, listening to music, waiting for a spark of inspiration for my look, when on came one of my FAVORITE songs: Problem by Ariana Grande. I like the song, because it has a really different unique sound to it. It’s funky, and a little sexy. So that’s what I came up with: a funky, smokey, and dramatic look for you. I really liked how this one came out, I thought it interpreted the song really well.

I hope you enjoy the look!

LOTD: Velvety Midnight Eyes

Hiya Crazies!:D So, I was just searching around Pinterest for makeup inspiration yesterday, and found this outfit collage inspired by nautical designs. When I think of sailors, and the sea, I think of maybe white and light blue makeup, but I wanted to change it up. I opted for a dark lid, neutral crease, and a smokey glitter lower lash line. I LOVE how this look turned out! Hope you do too:

The look in real life is a lot better-looking, but whatevs. 😉

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:

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

 

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