MOTD: Dark and Mysterious

MOTD NYX

While I was organizing my blog the other day I realized that I havn't been posting any MOTD's recently.  Sorry for all you that anticipate to see details of my daily MOTD's on Instagram.  

This look was a favorite especially for the dark dreary fall days- especially popular for a simple Halloween look to go with any costume. I wanted to use some products that were inexpensive and easy to find.  NYX Cosmetics is my go-to brand for inexpensive but good quality cosmetics.  I am a big fan of their lip products especially the Matte Lip Creams and Matte Lipsticks, oh and the Lip Butters! I guess I'm a fan of all their stuff.  

Here are the details on the products I used to create this look:                                                   (I forgot what I used for the blush, so sorry on my part!)

-NYX Hot Single Eye Shadow in Raven (matte black to deepen the crease)

- Eye Kandy Cosmetics Sprinkles Glitter in Chocolate Chip on the lid

- Lady Moss Beauty Koko Lashes in Foxy (LOVE these for a dramatic look)

- NYX Cosmetics Matte Lipsticks in Siren and Alabama blended together. 

 

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
House of Lashes Siren

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: 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.

NYX Cosmetics Love In Paris C'est La Vie  Eye Shadow Palette

for highlight, crease and lid.

4.

NYX Cosmetics Roll On Shimmer Nude

with

Liquid Crystal Liner Crystal Champagne

(the new color is now Crystal Silk) for bottom liner.

5. Line eye with

NYX Gel Liner in Jet Black

. I even used this product very lightly for my brows but I mixed it with the dark brown gel liner too.

5. Lashes are

House of Lashes Pixie Luxe

with Bohemian Princess stacked on top of each other

Can't forget about the @hairandmakeupaddiction brushes to create this look
