Halloween Inspiration Looks

Posted on: October 18, 2016

Not sure what to be for Halloween this year??

Well, you’re in luck, here are some Halloween Inspiration looks I created. Maybe one or all of these inspo looks may be something you’ll try this Halloween.

For the first look, I was inspired by none other than Snapchat. One of my fave filters is the Deer filter. I like the voice changer on this feature is just too cute.  So I decided to recreate the filter.

These are the products I used. I always start off by priming my face with Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional, then I do my eyes and then the face.

 Halloween Inspo Look #1 

sfb-halloween-inspo-4

 Eyes: 

NYX Cosmetics: Eyeshadow Base in shade ESB03

Lorac Cosmetics: Entire Lids: Lorac Pro Matte Palette using Bare and Latte, Crease: mix Corduroy and Chocolate and blend together and blend out. Middle of the Lid: Lorac eyeshadow in shade Inspiration.

Inglot Cosmetics : Gel Eyeliner in shade 77

Eyebrows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in the shade Chocolate. To create brow hairs similar to deers (for a more realistic effect), I used the Anastasia BH Brow Wiz and created fine lines. I also used NYX Cosmetics Eyeliner Pencil in Black and created more fine lines.

sfb-halloween-inspo-2

Face: 

 

Foundation: Benefit Cosmetics Hello Flawless oil-free O2 Foundation in shade Hazelnut

Face Powder: Neutrogena Skinclearing Mineral powder in shade Honey Beige 70

Concealer: NYX Cosmetics Full Coverage Concealer in shade CJ01 Porcelain & Inglot Cream Concealer in the shade Anticeme Creme

Nose: Anastasia Contour Kit Medium to Tan using the darkest shade down the sides of my nose connecting up to my eyes.  Down the middle I used a little of Inglot cream concealer in shade Anticrime creme and blended it. I used a white eyeshadow from the Lorac Eyeshadow Pro Palette to prevent creasing. For the tip of my nose, I used Inglots gel eyeliner in shade 77. To prevent creasing on my nose I patted the black eyeshadow from Lorac Eyeshadow Pro Palette.

Dots: I used white face paint

sfb-halloween-inspo-1

 Lips: 

Top lip: Tarte Cosmetics Dry matte lip paints in the color Naughty (Black)

Bottom Lip: Esos lip balm and then using Chanel’s Pinceau Levres Biseaute Angled Lip Brush and pat on Lorac Cosmetics eyeshadow color Inspiration to match the eyelids

And that’s the complete look with all the products I used to create this inspired look. I hope you try this look out and have fun with it, I sure did.

HALLOWEEN INSPO LOOK #2 

Sexy Kitten

Eyes

Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer base in the color Sin

NYX Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil in the color 601 Black bean, I used this all over my lid and smoked it out. Creating a base for my smokey eye. Blended the base out to begin the smokey effect. Proceed with eyeshadows to place over the base. (To prevent creasing)

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette, mixing the colors Blackout and Pistol for my crease. I also mixed the colors Verve and Snakebite to add a little sparkle to the crease. Blending all the colors and smoking them out, giving you the smoky effect. For the lids I used the colors Half-baked and Lorac Eyeshadow Pro Palette color Gold.

For eyeliner I used Inglot’s gel liner in shade 77, creating my signature winged line. I made my wing a little thicker.

To create the lines and point in the inner cover of the eyes use L’Oreal’s Infallible sculpt eyeliner in the color 904 black. Use the same line to create the whiskers and dots below your nose.

For the waterline I used NYX Cosmetics eyeliner pencil in the color black. I also used Inglot’s gel liner in black below my water line and midway below my water line and smudge it out. Then I used the gold eyeshadow (Lorac Eyeshadow Pro Palette) for below my waterline to the inner corners of my eye. Give the look a little dimension and making my eyes POP!

Face

Stowaway Cosmetics Radiant Complexion BB Cream in Shade Medium

Highlight: Lorac Cosmetics in the color Moonlight

Lips

Top Lip: Tarte Cosmetics Dry Matte Lipstick Paint sticks in the shade Naughty (Black)

Top off the look with a flower crown as seen here. I bought mine at the Halloween store, but you could totally make one of your own using real flowers or even silk flowers. The choice is all up to you. This look is easy and fun to create. I also created loose curls to make the look more feminine and sweet as oppose to scary and gorey, but it’s totally up to you. Still a fun look overall.

Halloween Inspo Look #4

Eyes: 

Creating a circles or oval shapes around the eyes and over the eyebrows, using Inglot’s gel liner, fill in all black. To prevent creasing and movement use a black eyeshadow to set the black around the eye. I used the black and a mixture of blue  shadows from my Eyes Lips Face Cosmetics eyeshadow palette. Smudge and smoke out around the eye area. Once all the eyes are filled in black, create half circle or petals around the eyes as seen above. Once you’ve created your flower eyes, fill in the petals with blue shadows (from my Eyes Lips Faces eyeshadow palette). For each petal I added some rhinestones (these stones are ones you’d use on your nails, I bought these from Sally’s Beauty Supply store). I applied them with Duo glue, the kind of glue you’d use for false eyelashes.

** You can use any colors you’d like to create this look. These are the colors I chose when I decided to create this look. But it’s up to you, have fun with it, have fun with make up and colors 🙂 **

Face:

ON WEDNESDAYS WE WEAR PINK: MY FAVES AND THE PERFECT SHADES OF PINK, CORAL AND NUDE FOR THE SUMMERTIME

Posted on: June 22, 2016

Looking for the perfect shade of Pink, Coral and Nude for the summer. Look no further, here are my fave shades of lippies for the summertime.

For me when it comes to purchasing a lipstick shade I look for:

* Killer colors and shades, something that goes well with my skin tone

* Something out of the ordinary, I LOVE to have fun with colors

* Something different from those in my collection

* Moisturizing and Hydrating products

* And if they are Matte shades, long- lasting products

* I love colors that POP

As for these beauties, these have been my go-tos for the summer months. The color Pink, blush, nude and corals has grown on me over the years and I just love how the colors look on me. Especially blush tones, they look great with my skin tone tone and I feel like the color can compliment just about anyone. Another reason to love these colors!! 🙂

 

TOM FORD SCANDOLA MOISTURECORE LIP COLOR

 

 I discovered this shade at an Exclusive VIB Rouge event for Tom Ford. And after trying out the color I just knew I had to purchase it. It’s the perfect nude with a hint of Pink and blush that adds a nice touch to your lips. Nothing to bright or overpowering. Just the right shade for something everyday or even for a night out . I would suggest wearing this lip if you want a hint of color and a pretty nude pink lip if your wearing a heavy eye make-up. It’s also a great color to wear on its own, the possibilities are endless.  This was mentioned in my favorites post, it’s a fave for a reason!! Check it out, tag me in a photo and let me know your thoughts on this perfect shade for the Summer.

 WHERE TO BUY IT: http://www.sephora.com/moisturecore-lip-color-P407305?skuId=1813583&icid2=D=c6:products%20grid:p407305

The perfect shade of nude with a hint of pink for the summer. Not only is it an amazing color, it’s also lightweight and super moisturizing. And it stays and last for HOURS.

PRICE: $ 55.00

NYX EXTRA CREAMY ROUND LIPSTICK IN SHADE 626 VITAMIN

 

I found this drugstore find at Target 2 maybe 3 years ago and it’s been a fave ever since. NYX is one of my favorite brands, not to mention it’s an affordable brand. I love how versatile NYX is and how innovative they are with their products. It’s the perfect shade of coral and pink mixed together in one. I call this my party lip. I love wearing this during the summer months, it just screams SUMMER and the perfect coral pink for a daytime look or even nighttime glam. I tend to do very minimal makeup during the Summer months because in NYC it’s steamy hot and I don’t want all my make up to melt off lol. So this gives me the right amount of POP and COLOR to  brighten up my face.

 WHERE TO BUY IT: http://www.nyxcosmetics.com/extra-creamy-round-lipstick/NYX_006.html?cgid=lipstick

 

PRICE: $4.00

CHANEL GLOSSIER GLOSS IN SHADE 297 SWEET BEIGE LEVRES SCINTILLANTES

 

I love this sheer moisturizing gloss. It’s an all time fave and I actually use it all year round. I don’t just limit it for the summer months. I love it so much I got through it fast that I’m buying it again and again. Sheer but gives you just enough color with a pop of shine if you want to try something that isn’t a lipstick. Super moisturizing and hydrating for the lips.

MAC’S LIPSTICK AA1 HALF AND HALF

 

This lipstick right here has been in my collection for YEARS! It’s the perfect nude for any occasion. I often use this in combination with the Chanel Glossier Gloss in shade 297 to give an added effect and shine to my lipS when I get all dolled up. I don’t think I could ever NOT love this shade. Some say its a nude but to me goes on like a nudey pink. It has hues of pink in it as well. But I HIGHLY recommend this shade to anyone and everyone.

BOBBI BROWN LIP COLOR IN SHADE 31 COCOA

 

This lip shade may be outside of the “pink” color shade realm but it has a hint of it and it’s a fave so I thought to add to the list. This lipstick I feel you can get away wearing it all year round, and I admit I do wear it all year round. I found this shade years ago while shopping at Sak’s Fifth Avenue with my Mom while trying to find a new lip shade for her. But when I saw this color I immediately said YASSS!! It’s a bit deeper than your average nude or pink color, possible leaning towards a maeve or brown. A beige plum brown as described by Bobbi Brown herself. To me depending on what season it may be it’ll look like a deeper tone in the Fall/Winter months and in the Spring/Summer months it’s looks more like a plum, pink shade. But when I wear this lipstick sometimes I tend to use a lighter shade underneath using either a pencil or lip shade to line or fill in my lip first then use this on top. It gives my lips a fuller look while giving off the ombre effect. I just like being creative when using make-up. Make-up is so fun to play around with, experimenting with different colors is one of my favorite thing to do. I enjoy experimenting and working with colors and make-up and creating art on my face or clients faces for many to admire.

NAR’S SATIN LIP PENCIL IN THE SHADE ISOLA BELLA

 

Now, I will admit I have a tendency to over line my lips sometimes… I have my Kylie Jenner moments.  But who doesn’t, i’m not afraid or ashamed to rock the look, and neither should you. This Satin Lip Pencil can give me the Kylie Jenner lip  giving me a pretty shade of blush pink. It compliments my skin tone and I’ve gotten a lot of compliments with this lip color. I either wear it alone or line and use one of my lipstick shades to add dimension and depth to my lip look for that particular day. But I  tend to use this on the days when I don’t wear a lot of eye make up and just want a pop of color to brighten up my face for the day. This is just great all on its own. It’s long lasting, moisturizing and hydrating for your lips.

YSL ROUGE VOLUPTE SHINE IN SHADE 15 CORAIL INTUITIVE

 

I discovered this shade just last weekend while at the Sephora store with my Mom. Sometimes when you aren’t looking for something at that moment for yourself you tend to find something that you may actually like or even love. This is what happened when I was looking for a new lipstick shade for my Mom. I was telling her about the YSL Rouge Lip shades and I wanted to get her a new shade for the summer and just in general. In process, I too found this particular coral pink shade thats SUPER hydrating, moisturizing and so pretty. The color stay isn’t as long as I would like, but the hydrating and moisturizing benefits are two pluses in my book. But the color won me over, so I was definitely a keeper.
