MOTD: Sugarpill Heartbreaker Palette blue/purple eye

Over the weekend I was able to play with my friend's Sugarpill Heartbreaker Palette and this was the result! I've never tried Sugarpill I was very impressed with the intense pigment of the shadows  LOVE!  Can't wait to try some of their other products.  What are your favorites?

I also used Violet Voss glitter in Fairy Dust for added touch of glitter to the lower lash line and Alter Ego Lashes Stop & Stare and Final Touch stacked.

MOTD: smokey eye Anastasia Beverly Hills Catwalk Palette

I created this look with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Catwalk Palette which is a gorgeous palette! I really like now there are a variety of different colors and just not filled with all neutrals. 

Here are the details of the eye look

Can you believe this picture was taken with an iPhone 5? I try to use my husbands's iPhone when he is home because I love the results. I still have the 4 and the clarity of the photo is not as nice as the 5. 

Do you like the Catwalk palette? If so what are you favorite shadow combinations?     

MOTD: Holiday Inspired Makeup with NYX Cosmetics

I'm a little late figuring out the settings on my camera (1 year later) but I am so happy that I did! Pictures are clear and the colors are vibrant. I have been getting a lot of people asking me why I have a glowing ring in my eyeballs.  That is the reflection from my new lighting! Gotta have good lighting for makeup pictures/videos especially when you do everything at night around 11pm.

Anyways here's today's festive look!

 1. Prime lid with

NYX Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil in Sparkle Green

.  This is how I achieved the vibrant green on the lid.  The green is gorgeous even used on it's own.

2.

NYX Cosmetics Love In Rio En Fuego Eye Shadow Palette

  The middle color (purple burgandy shade) used above the crease.

3.

4.

5. Line eye with

5. Lashes are

Tutorial: Get Ready With Me Soft Smokey Purple Cat Eye

I recently changed my hair color and I am so happy I did!  I grew out my hair for my wedding and 2 days after I cut it back to my short hair.  I love short hair, but I do wish at times I had long hair to curl it like those celebrities. :D  Do you bored with your hair and always want change? I do! I get bored easily.  Instead of changing the cut I just change the color, thanks to my good friend/stylist Thuy from 44th Street Salon.  She has been my stylist now for over a year and has been a very good friend.  She even did my hair for my wedding, I wouldn't want anyone else to do it but her. I'm thinking about doing some hair tutorials for short hair.  Just some ways that I do my hair for the short Bob sporting ladies. :D It's hard to know what to do with your hair! 

Thuy gave me some magenta highlights right in the front and I wanted to do something that will really compliment the hair.  At first I wanted to do all purple but then that's way too much purple going around.  I decided on MAC Sable Eyeshadow has a lid color and then added some additional colors to define and darken.  

This is my favorite look! It just blends so nicely together!

I think the lashes really give the eye makeup more detail.  

I thought they would be too long when I first saw them but 

look how great they turned out!

I always get asked to get a clean edge when doing a cat eye/arabic eye.
