False Eyelashes

MOTD: Colour Pop So Quiche Shadow


I've been a HUGE fan of the Colourpop Cosmetics Super Shock Shadows (click here COLOURPOP to read/view all the looks I've created with the cream shadows and for swatches/review).  I was recently sent the new fall colors and they are freaken gorgeous!!! Don't worry I'll have swatches for you very soon!

I really love the sparkly goodness in these shadows, the colors they came in, the ease of wear and of course the price point- $5!!

Here is how I created this look:

  • MAC Cosmetics Saddle Eye Shadow (Crease), Carbon (outer corner), Seedy Pearl (highlight) and White Frost  (inner tear duct highlight).
  • Colour Pop Cosmetics So Quiche Super Shock Shadow on the lid and smudged on the lower lashline.  I used my finger to apply the shadow because I find that your fingers will be the best tools for application especially with the cream consistency.  Before you begin make sure your fingers are nice and clean ;). Instead of using a blending the product back and forth use a patting motion with your finger- this will create a more pigmented base resulting in super impact color and shine!
  • NYX cosmetics Gel Liner and Smudger in Betty
  • House of Lashes Siren Lashes

Before you go I wanted to show you how amazing these lashes are!! One of my ultimate favorite styles.  Remind me of MAC #35 lashes. 




MOTD: Smokey Gold

Smokey Gold

I wanted to share this smokey gold eye look with all of you since I haven't posted a MOTD lately.  This photo was taken with my husband's Iphone, can you believe that? I am always in awe of the awesome pictures I get with a camera phone.  With the new Iphone 6 coming out- I can't wait to see how good my close-up pictures will turn out. 

I always have a love/hate relationship with my eyebrows.  You can tell when I have a good eyebrow day or a bad ( I usually don't post a MOTD if I feel my brows are not up to par).  I was having a very good eyebrow day in this picture.  I will definitely need to update my brow routine video! In case you are wondering what I use for my brows I define my brows with the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in Ebony with a thin slanted angle brush.  Enough with my brows lets get down with the details of the look.

Products used:

  • Motives Cosmetics Mavens Element Eye Shadow Palette
  •  Colour Pop Cosmetics  Super Shock Shadow Get Lucky on the lid
  • House of Lashes Noir Fairy Lashes
  • Violet Voss  glitter in Goldie.

MOTD: L.A. Girl Cosmetics

Colorful makeup with L.A. Girl Cosmetics

I love incorporating brighter colors to my makeup looks especially for summer and I am so happy how this one turned out.  I actually used the L.A. Girl Cosmetic Glide On Gel Liners as an eye shadow.  I basically just scribbled Goldmine all over my lid, let it set and I was good to go.  So easy but the results are long lasting color.   I did have to use a makeup remover (my go-to remover is MAC Cleanse Off Oil) to break down the liner but at least I know that It stays on!

MOTD: City Color Cosmetics Blue/Purple

Today's MOTD are some of the colors that I have been reviewing this week from

City Color Cosmetics

.  You can create a beautiful look with an affordable brand!

 To create this look I used the City Color Blue and Purple Multi Shade Eye Shadow Palette with the City Color Eye Shadow Primer to make the colors really vibrant.  A great tip that I like to share when using brighter colors is to pack the color on the lid with a flat brush instead of sweeping it back and forth.  When you do this you layer on more color to build upon each other. On my cheeks is the City Color Cosmetics  Intense Blush Quad Collection 1.  Lips are City Color Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Mauve.  Can't forget my lashes!!!

P.S. I used a different setting on my camera  for this look then the rest of my pictures.  Don't know how I feel about the saturation of the colors.  Will need to experiment more.
