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.


NYX Cosmetics Love In Rio En Fuego Eye Shadow Palette

  The middle color (purple burgandy shade) used above the crease.


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

for highlight, crease and lid.


NYX Cosmetics Roll On Shimmer Nude


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

Tutorial/Get Ready With me - Shimmer Rose Makeup with MAC Rose Pigment

Last weekend I was cleaning out my makeup collection and I came across MAC Rose Pigment.  I totally forgot about this color and I remember it use to be one of my favorite pigments.  It is a beautiful pinkish golden infused pigment.  I really wanted to use this color for a tutorial since I need to add some "colorful" looks for my Youtube channel.

I have been getting so many requests for more videos.  I give a lot of credit to the beauties who can produce and edit a couple of videos a week and at the same time be able to manage everyday life.  It's like a 2nd job to blog, film, and post.  I recently made a schedule for myself - every Thursday 1 YouTube tutorial and at least a couple times a week for posts.  So far I've been able to do this without any problems.   It's such a great feeling getting so much support from you guys, I appreciate it so much! It really makes me want to do more and more, and I am working so hard to give you guys what you want! :) So instead of video where I talk the whole time I might as well do a "getting ready with me" makeup video.  At least you can see how I achieve a full look.  The speed is pretty fast but you can pretty much see all the steps that I am doing. I am interested how you guys like this ...

MOTD: NYX Love In Rio Love Is A Cha Cha

I haven't posted a MOTD forever!!! Sorry for all of you have been waiting for some new looks with some step by step instructions. 

As you know I am really into purple eye shadows.  There is just something about purple that I love to wear on my eyes.  So here's another purple eye shadow combination that I just couldn't pass up on especically when the trio of shadows are so pigmented.

I love NYX Cosmetics not only for their amazing value but how well their products perform especially their eye products.  The

Jumbo Eye Pencils

are my favorite go to primer to make eye shadows POP! If you need a recommendation on which one to choose (they have several different colors) MILK is the #1 choice.  It's a matte white that will work with any color combination but I really like to use it for bright colors. 

  Here are the steps to create the look. 

1. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Oyster as your base.  As your highlighter apply NYX Ultra Pearl Nude Loose Eye Shadow.

2. NYX Love In Rio Love Is A Cha Cha lighter color all over the lid

3. Middle color which is a deeper purple all over the crease.  Apply this shade with detailed definer brush and blend out with a blending brush.

4.  Take your detailer brush and apply the darker shade right in the outer corners of the eyes for definition.  For added drama add a matte black eye shadow.

5. Line your eyes top and bottom and give it a little wing.

6.  Lashes used for this look are

House Of Lashes

Siren.  OMG I am obsessed!!! They remind me of MAC 35 Lash!!!!

7.  Brows are 

Anastasia Beverly Hills

Tinted Brow Gel Espresso and Brow Genius Kit in Brunette.

To make this look complete NYX Strawberry Milk was used on the lips along with NYX Mocha Blush and NYX Narcissistic Illuminator right above it. 

 I used

Makeup Addiction

Brushes in The Detailer and The Blender

I hope you guys like this look, as it is one of my new favorites.  I will be posting new YouTube tutorials next month.  Don't forget to follow me on
