Command and Surrender- Sigma Fun

face Atelier, Sigma Eye shadows

I used a sample eye palette I got from Sigma for this look. It came with 3 shades, 1 from each of their palettes; Dare, Flare and Bare. This is the first time using their eye shadows and I must say I really liked the textures of the shadows.  Here’s a breakdown of this simple, fun look!

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 😦

What I used for this look

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!

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.
