Face Of The Day: Purple Passion

Hey You guy, I hope everyone having a great day! My day is going great (besides homework) because I finally got to see my little niece in person Yay! She was so cute and it made my day.

Anyway I am writing about a look I decided to do with the Urban Decay Shadowbox Deluxe.  Now I don’t normally wear a bright eye, it’s usually neutral, or bright eyeliner or something, but I wanted to try it out, because I just got this palette with all these colorful eye shadows, and this is how my look turned out. Hopefully you guys don’t think I look like Mimi  ha ha.

So on my face I used Laura Mercier tinted Foundation in Walnut: I really like this stuff, it gives my skin a more flawless look, without feeling heavy, or cakey, but I do find that even though it’s oil free, if I don’t use a primer, or setting spray, I do have to blot my face during the day. This is great if you’re like me and have an aversion to foundation ha ha.

I also used Pixi Flawless Finish: I really like this stuff, it works well for my combination skin, and keeps my skin matte all day, though I do like the Smash box Primer better, because it works and feels better, but this is a more affordable option for me.

*

For my eyes I First used Urban Decay Primer Potion: I love this stuff, even though I don’t really have to oily eyelids, it makes my eye shadow stay(even bottom Liner) the whole day, and I mean the WHOLE day, through rain, hail, or shine, even if my other makeup has sweated off, my eyes are still perfect. Also it lasts forever since you only need a tiny bit.

Next I used Fishnet all over the lid, Ransom in the crease, and Zero in the outer corner, and Peace to liner my bottom lashes.

These eye shadows were really easy to work with, they were vibrant and lasted all day.

I used Navy liner instead of black because i felt it went with this look better and wasn’t as harsh.

On my lashes I used:

For the lips I used: MAC Magenta lip pencil  and MAC Rebel: I really love these color together, the lip pencil give Rebel a more pinky lighter vibe. Magenta is my first MAC pencil and honestly though this a gorgeous color, the lip pencil formulation is not that special, for the color it was a good purchase, but for the formulation it wasn’t. Also if you’re looming looking for a dupe to Rebel try Wet & Wild Sugar Plum Fairy, my all time favorite lipstick!

So even though these colors were out of my comfort zine because they were BRIGHT as heck, I definitely loved the look, and I got a lot of compliments. So this reminded me to take more risks and change it up with my makeup. What do you think of this look, would you try it? Also how have you been changing up your makeup recently? Thanks for reading, and have and awesome day.

Simple, Easy, Makeup, still going strong!

BeFunky_IMG_0903.jpg

Hey ya’ll so I have totally still been wearing this makeup look all the time, yes it’s still going strong. I am a creature of habit sometimes, though I promise to post how I am changing it up soon. I just thought it would be cool to post on how I pair the same eye look with different cheek and lip products. So this is the makeup that I have been wearing recently, since I do work with children five days a week, I want to keep it easy, and not too much so it doesn’t slide off my face when I am playing four square at recess, Ha Ha four square is intense when we play!

As you can see, it’s not too many products, and I also didn’t use foundation or anything with this look, it is pretty much the same products as last time.

I love this lipstick, I was going to get  RiRi Woo, but I bought Ruby Woo instead  and I love it, I am a sucker for matte lipsticks. If you put on lip liner, this stays on all day, through eating, drinking, and whatever you are doing.

I really love this sleek countour kit, I am pretty sad that the highlighter is breaking though :(. I have been using this thing everyday for months, and have yet to hit pan. I really like this Murad concealer for pimples, but I am not a concealer connoisseur as I have not used man… yet.  I love love this cream blush from NYX in hot pink, it is pigmented, blend-able, and lasts for a long time.

3.IMG_0919IMG_0920

Love Love this Mica gel eyeliner, I got in an Ipsy bag a few months ago, it stays put all day. As you guys might know this is my all time favorite out of any cream shadow, this is Top Brass from Benefit. It great as a base and on its own, or even paired with one other eye shadow.

4. IMG_0922

I really like this eye shadow from the Balm I got in and Ipsy bag, I really want to get this whole palette.

5.IMG_0918

This eyebrow palette is the second one I have got from NYX and I love it, though on hotter days I do use brown gel from elf instead of the wax because it will sweat off, and not stay out.

Well thank you guys for reading, and what makeup looks or products, that you can’t seem to stray from lately?

Super Easy Makeup Look!

Image

Hey Ya’ll. So i wore this makeup look today and i was pleased at how well it turned out, and it was super easy! So i wore this on a chill Sunday, going to the mall with friends, and then later to dinner at my mom’s house. These are the products that i used:

Image???????????????????????????????

  • Tarte-Lights, camera.lashes: First of all i love the name! I really like this mascara. it is one of the few high end mascaras that i actually like. I like the brush, formulation, and how easy it is to get off
  • NYX-Eyebrow Kit: I LOVE this kit, it is portable, easy to work with, and a great price. I can totally do a separate review later if you guys want, because i was sort of confused at how to use this at first.
  • The Balm -Meet Matt(e)-Matt Batali:  THis is a pretty deep burgundy color, i really like it. It’s easy, bendable and very pigmented, I’ve been considering getting the whole palette, but it isn’t something i really covet.
  • MicaBeauty- Gel Liner: I love this, i was never really into gel liner (liquid liner junkie) until i got this in my glam bag. But now i love gel liner! This made me finally try the Bobbi Brown gel liner (more on that later).
  • NYX powder blush-Cinnamon: I like this blush because i think it is perfect for summer.  I love how it is subtle and warms up my face. Though i do think the quality could be better.
  • Benefit-creaseless cream eye shadow in top brass: I love this, this is the very first cream eye shadow i have ever used (not the last though) and my favorite s. It is so far. Keep in the old form though keep in mind.

Here is a close up picture of my eyes. To get this look i applied the creaseless cream eye shadow all over my lids, crease, brow bone  and inner corner. Then i used the balm eye shadow in my outer corner and blended it into my crease. I Applied liner, mascara, blush and then done. Oh on my lips is a Revlon lip gloss!

Ipsy March Glam Bag

Image

So i received my March Glam Bag at the beginning of the week, and i had a chance to try things out my products for a few days. First off a lot of people think that subscription services are rip-offs, but I think that they are fun. If I can get a couple great products out of them, then I think that they worth it. This is a reason I cancelled my BirchBox subscription after I tried it for a few months, because I kept getting duds, and it wasn’t worth my money. Ramble aside, now on to the review!

The Make Up Bag: I loved this bag, it’s roomy, cute, and a great pattern for spring and summer.

Price: free

Would I buy: I don’t have to got it for free, but I would if I saw it at Target or something.

The Compact: GlamRX mini free style palette: Cute style and color, but I don’t think it’s anything spectacular unless you plan on buying the eye shadows (not sold GlamRX), I don’t know what else you can fit in here. So it’s not practical for to me to carry around.

Price: $16.50, but not for this one, they only sell the GlamRX touch up palette and that comes with concealer, tinted lip balm, shine erase powder, and a black eyeliner.

Would I buy: Nah, I mean if you don’t already have these things, or if you love the compact ( which a handy size), then maybe you might want to check it out

Yaby Eye shadow: I got two colors, So Vein (Teal color) and Sand Dune (self explainable ha ha). I love the teal color I used it a liner and it was pigmented and stayed all day, the sand dune color was eh, just okay. You can use them dry or wet.

Price: Awesome, only 3.29 each, very affordable

Would I buy: Yes I would check out some more colors, and then maybe I would use the palette ha ha

Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist: Smells good, light and herbal. It is supposed to tone, hydrate, and refresh. I did not like this, I wanted to though because the ingredients in it are good things like Organic aloe juice, and organic grape juice. I cleansed my face in the morning and sprayed this. It left a sticky film on my face for the whole day, it was uncomfortable. It didn’t make my face look any better, and made it kind of oily. Also be sure to hold it a ways away from your face because it does not come out like a mist.

Price: $22 for 6.25, I don’t think it worth it honestly, I would use it up so fast.

Would I buy: definitely not, I don’t even want to finish up the sample

La Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipes: Smell is light and fresh, and did the job. I didn’t love these, though I liked how they had vitamin E so they made my skin feel moisturized after I used them, so would be great for travel.

Price: $1.99 ($1.49 right now), super affordable only comes with eight wipes though, but for travel they’re great.

Would I buy: Hmm maybe for travel, but regularly I don’t think so. I can pay $3 more bucks, and get more accessible ones, with a 30ct, and I don’t have to pay shipping and wait for them to arrive


Overall Grade:
 C-

I did not love my Glam Bag this month, I did not discover anything that I wanted to pick up right away, or was instantly wowed by. I liked the wipes and the SO Vein eye shadow, but I could definitely pass on them!
