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: 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: Motives Cosmetics Fall Look with My Beauty Weapon Eyeshadow Palette

Makeup of day features

Motives Cosmetics

products to create this fall inspired smokey eye. Here are the products that I used to create this look.

For the eyes the  Shadows  are Smoke (lid) Smokey (inside the crease), Chocolate (above crease) all from the

Motives My Beauty Weapon Palette

.  This palette is wonderful! You can really create a variety of looks from natural to super glam.  Another thing I like about this palette is the matte shades, super pigmented! Make sure you use a really good base for Smoke to adhere to.  Even using a gel eyeliner, or cream black shadow will really help.  Liquid Liner in Noir.  Brows are from  Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel Espresso and Brow Genius Kit in Brunette.

I wanted to show you the Pixie Lashes from House of Lashes up close.  These are my favorite to wear for a dramatic look as the lashes really compliment the darkness of the colors.  Length and fullness you have it all in 1 package.

Tutorial/MOTD: Black & Gold

Lately, I have been a lot of requests for black and gold eye shadow looks.  With all the Holiday parties coming this weekend along with New Years right around the corner I thought it would be the right time to make a tutorial.

[side note]

I am so into making YouTube tutorials now because of my new video camera and set up with my new lighting.  My goal is to make 1 video a week including reviews and how to segments.  My new Panasonic Lumix camera has been a great addition to my JVC video cam.  When I love something I want to keep playing with it hopefully it doesn't get old. lol

Here are the products that I used to create this look:

NYX White Eye Shadow Primer

MAC Eye Shadows - Ricepaper, Soft Brown, Espresso and Carbon

L'Oreal Infalliable 24hour Eye Shadow - Gold Imperial

Faux Lashes Alexia www.fauxlash.com

Sonia Kasuk Pointed Eye Liner Brush

Revlon Photoready BB Cream Medium (will do a review)

Benefit High Beam Highlighter (will do a review)

Smashbox Gingersnap Blush Rush

Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder (will do a review)

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Trollop/Ophelia

Some tips for this look:

-Try not to blend the black into the gold this will turn the black green.

-If you do not have the colors that I used then use colors that are similar but with a MATTE finish.  If you use something with shimmer or frost it will be too much and you won't get the definition.

-Remember to get the Scotch Tape tacky (first run it on the back of your hand) before you apply it to your eye area.  If you don't do this before, when you take it off it will be painful.  I've done this and it's not a good thing!

-Have a clean extra blending brush handy to use to blend the darker shades so the colors don't look muddy.

I'm already thinking of my next video! If you guys have any requests please let me know ;)

MOTD: Teal/purple brown eye

Who knew that teal and  purple/brownish shade would look good together.  I am using the Limited Edition Sleek Makeup Monaco Palette.  Will update this post once I get some swatches together from this palette.
