Going Natural with Violeta Lips

I love going natural; light foundation, nothing on my lids except mascara with a strong lip color. This is something I would wear to work since its so quick and not heavy or too much.

On my lips, I’m wearing Mac Violeta lipstick. Arguably my favorite purple lipstick.

On my face I’m wearing bare minerals.

On my eyes I’m only wearing my Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara.

Night Out with Russian Red Lipstick

I am a huge fan of red lips and I love wearing red lipstick. Red lips look so classic and elegant especially for a night out. When I usually wear red lips I either go neutral on the eyes or if I’m feeling really bold or want to have that smoldering look, I wear a smokey eye. I went neutral here. I wore this for a night out with the girls. I also contoured my face here. I don’t usually contour my face because sometimes I just think it’s too much, for my taste, but I do think its good for a special night out from time to time, The lighting was pretty poor but I tried to get some better pictures 😦

Winged Eye Liner Look

winged Liner-Cat eyes & red lips

I saw this photo on Pinterest and I absolutely LOVED her eyes! So Of Course I had to re-create it. Of Course it’s not to scale and not exactly the same but It is an inspiration. I don’t really care for the thick eyeliner wing on me. I really liked how this came out (not loving my hair though) and I wanted it to be more wearable.  The photo is gorgeous but it’s definitely fashion makeup. I would wear this out to a party or a night out with the girls. It’s not a lot of makeup, it’s really simple, but precise, and who can resist red lips?  The only thing I would add would be some false lashes. I think that would give this look that extra boom but I ran out of time. But I love it s is!

**Would you recreate this look?

Products used:
I only used a Black liquid Liner(Lise Waiter Feline Eyeliner HD) to outline the shape of the cat eye and filled in the lid with a black pencil(Urban Decay Zero) and set with a charcoal black (Mac Typographic eyeshadow-).
Black Mascara

Lips:

I wanted to do something super fun and dramatic. I would wear this out to a party or someplace fun but this is just fun, creative makeup. I Purchased some glitter from Lit Cosmetics at the PhamExpo in June and I’ve been playing with them and used them on clients but I haven’t had the chance to use and play with them on myself.

I hope you like the creation! I loved how this came out and so did my mom. She doesn’t like me wearing so much makeup!

OCC Lip Tar Anime

I Love bright lip colors and I love this shade of lip tar even more! it’s so bright and bold, it’s so my style. The color is a bright pink color. The texture is really smooth and blends beautifully. I really liked this for the summer and even though summer is just about over it’s still a lovely color to wear year round. I will surely wear this in October, January and March if i want to.

The color is long wearing mostly because it is so bright that it stains the lips as it starts to fade. So you are left with a nice lip stain if the color fades. I prefer to use lip tars with a lip pencil if I want to wear this all day because I notice that the brighter and darker shades tend to bleed. So a lip pencil, or putting a primer on the lips or concealer around the corners of your lips will stop the color from bleeding.

I really like Lip Tars, especially if you’re a makeup artist because they are compact and doesn’t take up much space, they can be mixed and customized to create your own color and they will last forever because you really only need a tiny amount. For best application, apply with a stiff lip brush. That’s my only gripe with lip tars, you need a brush. I’m an on the go type a girl and I just don’t keep a lip brush in my purse. But overall I am a fan of Lip Tars. They offer a wide variety of shades and they are of good quality.

**What do you think of OCC Anime? Do you own this shade?

Colors of Brazil- Using Makeup Forever Flash Colors

Makeup Forever Flash Color Look

Makeup Forever Flash Color Look 13 & 38

I used the flash colors from Makeup Forever for this look, just to test out how they wear and how they photograph.I reviewed the products here. The colors are really vibrant. I really enjoyed doing this look and I loved how it came out. Green and yellow are among my personal favorite colors on the eyes. Reminds me of Brazil! I just wanted to test and show how quick and easy this look was. I only used two of the flash colors, 13(yellow) on the lid and 38(teal) in the crease. I also used Urban Decay 24/7 Eye pencil in Graffiti on the lower lash line. This was a really quick look and I really do love these flash colors.
