MOTD: Full Airbrush Look w/ Belletto Studio

I am addicted to airbrushing!   I created this look with the

Belletto Studio

Airbrush System from the face, eyes and lips. Yes, can you believe it?! The only thing I added was a pencil for my waterline, mascara, false  eyelashes and of course my brows (but you can also airbrush your brows too!). I personally love it because it feels super light and does not look cakey because of its natural finish it creates.  You literally can do any makeup with your airbrush, and it will last all day. YES, no need for touch-ups and it's super easy to do apply on yourself. More airbrush looks to come and a review of the system including the colors.

Here is the recipe to create this look.

Tutorial: Smokey Eye With Anastasia Beverly Hills Catwalk Palette

I cannot get enough of this palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills.  All the colors are up my alley, it literally is my go-to palette at the moment.  I've created everyday looks to dark smokey makeups such as this tutorial that I am sharing with all of you today.

I was looking through all of my tutorials and it seems like I haven't done a dark smokey one in awhile plus I haven't done a YouTube tutorial FOREVER! I do apologize for the lack of videos, but remember you can always follow me on Instagram.  I guess the reason why I hate making videos is because I always get stuck on what to show you guys! BLAH! Plus I hate editing, it's more of a love/hate relationship.

Anyways, lets get back to to the look.

This is how the palette looks, the colors are pretty right?

Here is a close-up of my face with all the products that I used to create the look.

If you don't have a frosted white eye shadow in your makeup collection you need one! White instantly opens up the eyes.  Take a look at my

Spring/Summer Trend look here

where I use white eye shadow on my lid.

Did you see the cute VILLABEAUTIFFUL customized compact by Case Envy? I am so in love and I handle it with care when I use it.  Ev, really took care of me and wanted to make sure I was happy with my compact.  She went above and beyond to make sure it was exactly what I wanted.  So pleased to have done business with her.  She's amazing. To order yours please contact caseenvy@yahoo.com

I love anything Rose Gold so when I was sent these beautiful beautiful brushes from

LuxieLush

, I was in heaven!!! These are the brushes that I used to create this look in my video.  You get 12 brushes for eyes and lips with the brush cylinder case - a full set to complete a full makeup look.  The brushes are super soft and made very well. I always feel guilty using these brushes because they are just too pretty to use!

MOTD: smokey eye Anastasia Beverly Hills Catwalk Palette

I created this look with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Catwalk Palette which is a gorgeous palette! I really like now there are a variety of different colors and just not filled with all neutrals. 

Here are the details of the eye look

Can you believe this picture was taken with an iPhone 5? I try to use my husbands's iPhone when he is home because I love the results. I still have the 4 and the clarity of the photo is not as nice as the 5. 

Do you like the Catwalk palette? If so what are you favorite shadow combinations?     

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

Tutorial: Get Ready With Me Soft Smokey Purple Cat Eye

I recently changed my hair color and I am so happy I did!  I grew out my hair for my wedding and 2 days after I cut it back to my short hair.  I love short hair, but I do wish at times I had long hair to curl it like those celebrities. :D  Do you bored with your hair and always want change? I do! I get bored easily.  Instead of changing the cut I just change the color, thanks to my good friend/stylist Thuy from 44th Street Salon.  She has been my stylist now for over a year and has been a very good friend.  She even did my hair for my wedding, I wouldn't want anyone else to do it but her. I'm thinking about doing some hair tutorials for short hair.  Just some ways that I do my hair for the short Bob sporting ladies. :D It's hard to know what to do with your hair! 

Thuy gave me some magenta highlights right in the front and I wanted to do something that will really compliment the hair.  At first I wanted to do all purple but then that's way too much purple going around.  I decided on MAC Sable Eyeshadow has a lid color and then added some additional colors to define and darken.  

This is my favorite look! It just blends so nicely together!

I think the lashes really give the eye makeup more detail.  

I thought they would be too long when I first saw them but 

look how great they turned out!

Eyemimo NTR27 false eyelashes

I always get asked to get a clean edge when doing a cat eye/arabic eye. 

Use scotch tape! Yes Genius!
