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.

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.

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: 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!!!

P.S. I used a different setting on my camera  for this look then the rest of my pictures.  Don't know how I feel about the saturation of the colors.  Will need to experiment more.

Review: City Color Cosmetics Intense Blush Quad Collection 1

  The

City Color Cosmetics Intense Blush Quad Collection 1

is AMAZING! WOW! I have never found a blush palette like this that is affordable for everyone.  The colors are so vibrant and they stay on the skin very well.  With these bright colors I like to apply them with a fan brush so it just lightly sweeps the color on the apples of the cheeks.  In the palette you will get different shades of pink from bright hot pink to a lighter girly pink. Did I mention the blushes are all MATTE? YES! MATTE! YAY!  My favorite shade is the 3rd shade it's more of a mauve pink that can go with any look you are trying to achieve. I am very pleased with this palette and really want to get the other set -

Collection 2 

which features peachy/orange/coral shades.  If you are looking for matte blushes with high pigmentation at an affordable price then this is for you!

Look at the colors!! I didn't even use a primer!

Speaking of primer ... 

City Color Cosmetics does have a great foundation primer.  I used it for the first time to create a look for the next Makeup of The Day and it left my face matte and shine free in my pictures.  I was very impressed! At first it was a little hard to squeeze out of the tube but once you apply it the product just glides on the face.  This paraben-free primer does not feel heavy on the skin (in my opinion) and I like how soft it feels.  I instantly noticed that my pores were not as noticeable and how smooth my skin looked even after I applied my foundation. 

 Take a look how great my foundation looks! Totally matte no shine! This was a look that I created for one of my MOTD's I will post more pictures and product listing later this week.  It is all City Color Cosmetics!

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.
