MOTD: Dark and Mysterious


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!)

MOTD: Prom 2013 Makeup Inspiration

My prom was over 10 years ago (wow, really has it been that long?) I remember trying to think how I wanted my hair and makeup done but during that time there was only Seventeen and Teen magazine to look for inspiration.  Now all these teenagers have amazing sources for hair and makeup inspiration via the internet.  During the next couple of months (April-June) I will be posting a look to complement a dress that one of my followers have tagged on Instagram.  Thought this would be a good way for me to start doing daily MOTD'S again :)

Here are some of my past MOTD'S that would be great for this year's Prom Season

Tutorial/MOTD: Naked2 Palette & LIT Cosmetics - Party Glam Eyes

I have been getting a lot of requests for some eye shadow combinations using the colors from the new Naked2 Palette.  This has been my go-to palette since I purchased this a couple of months ago. You can create so many different looks from an everyday going to the office look to a night out with the girls.  The more I use this palette that more I favor it over the original Naked Palette because of the cooler toned shadows.

I needed a look that I could wear out for NYE, something not too bright and not too over the top.  I knew the Naked2 Palette would be the right choice for a mix of neutrals and dramatics. 

I received a pot of LIT Cosmetics glitter called Rich Famous that I have been dying to use.  OMG I am in love!! Serioulsy, when I tried this type of glitter I knew I had to start collecting.  This company has various sizes of glitter but the popular one is #2 which is fine enough to use around the eye area.  If you are into glitter you need to check out this company.  So many different colors that you will go crazy! I literally want to collect all of them, but then I would be covered in glitter.  GORGEOUS! I did not want to take my makeup off because of the glitz that made my eye makeup come alive. So many people complimented me saying my eyes caught their attention.  I can't wait to order more

and create different looks for my Makeup Of The Days on Instagram.
