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: Blue/Orange Colorful Eye

 I just love the

Morphe Brushes 

35 Color Glam Palette!! Look how pigmented the colors I used to create this look. First I used NYX Cosmetics  Jumbo Eye Pencil in Electric Blue to make the lid color really pop. I just applied this on top of my eye shadow primer that I use regularly. I really like the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils because they come in a variety of colors to enhance your lid shadow. The lashes are

Alter Ego Lashes

in  Pixie Dusters. Of course I had to add just a tiny bit of glitter to my inner tear duct -

Eye Kandy Cosmetics

glitter in Confetti. I love Confetti because it's a silver holographic that can be worn with any color combination.

I've been so behind at posting some new content! To be caught up with me and my makeup adventure you can find me on INSTAGRAM -- VILLABEAUTIFFUL (don't forget the double FF's!)

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!!!

MOTD: Tropical Bird Inspired Colors

Makeup today is a bright eye inspired by a tropical bird.  Urban Decay Eye Shadows Fishnet (upper crease), Evidence (defined crease), Eldorado (lid) and Peace (lower lash line)

MOTD: Yellow/brown with a touch of blue

For today's MOTD I decided to change it up a little bit with a different layout.  I thought it would  be nice change to do more of a tutorial picture layout to show all my followers the steps to achieve this look.  It has been a huge success and will be posting more MOTD'S like this from now on.  If you don't know already I take all my makeup pictures with my Iphone 3GS and use FrameMagic (layout the pictures) and BeFunkyPro (edit pictures). Many people cannot believe that I do, but YES I do! These two programs have made my MOTD'S amazing!  My lighting always helps and I will share that later. A post about the My MOTD Style process is long overdue.. I must share the background.  SOON!

I have used the color yellow for a lot of my MOTD'S, before I hated wearing this color but now I can't get enough of it.  Yellow is a color that you really need to pair with a darker shade to add a contrast and depth to your makeup.  Pairing it with another brighter color would also look great! Some colors that would compliment the yellow would be bright blue, teals, grass greens, and oranges/pinks/corals (this combination makes a lovely sunset look).  I haven't tried purple yet, but I am sure it would look great also.

MAC Shadows

Gesso (highlight)

Brown Down (upper crease) use with MAC #224 brush for more a diffused blending effect

Embark (crease) use with MAC #219 brush and then blend with either #224 or #217

Chrome Yellow (lid) wet your brush with MAC Fix+ and apply the yellow shadow to make it more intense

Freshwater (lower lash line) a q-tip helps create a soft blended look for a drop shadow.

The lashes are 2 pairs layered on top of each other.  I will have a post about this later.  No particular brand of lashes, just the ones that I get at the Japanese Dollar Store, Daiso.  I love layering lashes because you can create your own style and look.  Also the lashes are only $1.50!
