I stumbled upon a super awesome lipstick hack this past weekend, and I just had to share it!
I wrote about the long lasting power of the Maybelline SUPERSTAY 24® lipstick before, and talked about how it will literally last through anything. Believe me, I was skeptical too, but there’s just no stopping it!
At this point, I know that Maybelline SUPERSTAY 24® works great on its own, but what I discovered is that it also plays well with others.
It’s a day that probably has a lot more significance than just green beer, but since I don’t know what it is, I’m going to focus on green makeup instead!
Some of my friends happen to be beauty junkies as well, and subscribe to various beauty boxes filled with random monthly goodies. The beautiful thing about it for me is that I often get “weird” and “unusable” products tossed my way. Green shimmer eyeliner? I’ll take it! Green eye-shadow? Pass it here!
The reason I like trying out different products is because it’s not about the one single product, but rather about how you work it. Confidence is number one, followed by how you wear it and what you wear it with Read more
Hi guys! I want to quickly share my smokey eye makeup routine. It’s very simple and can be easily toned down or punched up.
Typically a smokey eye is created by blending 2 eye shadows, and made the more dramatic with the use of eyeliner. I only applied eyeliner on my top lashes because the occasion didn’t call for more than that, but for a bolder look apply eyeliner on the bottom as well. A coloured eyeliner looks really cool too. Whenever I use a coloured eyeliner I use it in conjunction with the black, I just trace a thin coloured line above the black. Normally they say you should be using complementary coloured eye makeup to your eye colours, but quite frankly my eyes are green and I love using a blue eyeliner, and it works just fine!
A smokey eye is the perfect look for a night out, because it looks both dramatic and fancy. Because my sweater was quite bold already I wanted to keep the colours to a min, but don’t be afraid to experiment with colour! There is so much you can do!
What I did to create this look:
1. I used a cream shade all over my lid,
2. And the darker charcoal shade in the crease of my eye, and along the lash line.
3. Using the brush you see below I blended the 2 colours upwards and a bit above the crease.
4. I added colour to my cheeks using a peach blush,
5. And finished the look off with a nude lip. The lip liner and lip gloss you see below are the cheapest things I own and I absolutely love both! I got them at a make up sale I attended for $1. Yup. True Story.
The eye shadows and makeup brush you see below are both by Mistura Beauty. Iv’e mentioned them before in previous posts. They’ve been around for a few years now and are available in Rexall Pharmacy stores, and online through various retailers. Personally I really enjoy their makeup brushes, and the pigmentation of the eye shadows. My only critique would be that the eye shadow compact is hard to open and you have to use your nails. Other than that, great stuff!
So give this super simple look a try and let me know how it goes!
I have to tell you about this lipstick, or lip stain rather.
A friend told me about it a while ago. She claimed that it stays on all night. What are the chances of a color staying on your lips after you eat, drink, kiss, or whatever else you do? But I figured I’d try it. It only cost $12 so I didn’t have too much to lose but potentially a new favorite to gain!
This lipstick is available in 30 different wonderful shades (click on picture for link). The one I’m wearing is ‘Keep up the Flame’ #025, but I have a feeling I’ll be adding more to my collection. This lipstick has 2 sides to it. One is the actual colour, and the other is the hydrating balm. After applying the colour your lips will feel a bit dry but that’s ok. Make sure the color dries completely and then apply the balm, which will hydrate your lips and add shine.
This dress is so funky cool! I own so much French Connection clothing it’s ridiculous. What I love about FCUK is that their clothes are always different, and interesting. This dress for example, what a neat pattern! And not only that, but the shape of it is great. It is completely covered up up top, but still sexy because it’s formfitting and has a slit along the thigh.
