Anniversary Glam–MAKE-UP LOOK

Posted on: August 24, 2015

THE LOOK:  SILVER FROST LIGHT SMOKEY EYE

SINCE OUR ANNIVERSARY FELL ON A MONDAY, WE KEPT IT TO A LOW-KEY EVENING. BUT I STILL WANTED TO GLAM IT UP FOR DINNER. HERE’S MY LOOK AND THE PRODUCTS I USED TO CREATE THIS ANNIVERSARY GLAM LOOK.

WHAT I USED:

BEFORE I USE MY FOUNDATION OR DO ANY CONTOURING I STARTED WITH MY EYES.

FOR MY EYES: FOR THE MOST PART I USED URBAN DECAY’S NEW SMOKEY PALETTE. ON THE OUTER 3RD OF MY LID I USDED A LITTLE BIG OF “BLACK MARKET” AND BLENDED THE COLOR CREATING A “V” SHAPE  BLENDING ALL OF THE COLORS USED OUT. FOR MY CREASE I MISED THE COLORS” SLANTED AND DAGGER”

FOR THE CENTER OF MY LIDS:  I USED THE COLOR “HIGH” FOR A FROSTED CHAMPAGNE SHIMMER TO CONTRAST THE DARKNESS ON THE OUTER “V.” OVER THE “HIGH” SHADE, I ROLLED ON NYX COSMETICS “ROLL-ON SHIMMER STICK IN THE COLOR ” WALNUT.” TO ADD A SUBTLE SPARKLE AND FROST LIKE SHIMMER.

FOR THE HIGHLIGHT UNDER MY BROW : I USED THE COLOR “THIRTEEN” FROM URBAN DECAY SMOKEY PALETTE.

FOR MY LASHES:

I USED LORAC PRO FIBER MASCARA

ARDELL WHISPY VOLUMINOUS EYELASHES + DUO LASH GLUE

FOR MY EYELINER:  I USED NYXCOSMETICS LIQUID EYELINER IN VERY BLACK.

AFTER MY EYES I MOVED ONTO MY FOUNDATION+CONTOUR ROUTINE.

FOR MY FACE: I USED LO’REAL’S INFALLIABLE PRO-MATTE FOUNDATION IN THE COLOR “FRESH BEIGE, #107”

FOR CONTOUR AND HIGHLIGHT:  I USED MY MORPHE CONTOUR PALETTE. FOR HIGHLIGHT I USED MICA BEAUTY COSMETIC SHIMMER POWDER IN THE COLOR “BRONZE.” FOR THE HIGH POINTS OF MY CHEEKBONES, CUPIDS BOW, AND THE BOTTOM OF MY LIPS.

HOW TO STROB 101

Posted on: August 20, 2015

Learn the basics on how to strob by clicking on my Youtube tutorial.  I show you the products I LOVE LOVE LOVE at the moment and the basics to achieve the all over GLOW, “lit from within” look.

Strobing is just a new trend to hit the make up scene. It’s basically highlighting to the next level. It’s all the rave this Summer, the look that will give your face that all around glow looking bright and radiant.

To create this look just use your favorite highlighter/luminizer to emphasize the high points on your face. My personal favorites vary between powders and cream base products. Currently, I’ve been using more powders than cream products because I like the texture. I feel they are more manageable, giving me more control in my brush strokes when I apply the product.

Areas to apply highlight:

Enhance your Cheekbones- High points of your cheek

*Underneath your brow bone

*Inner corner of your eye

*The bridge of your nose

*Cupid’s bow

*Underneath your bottom lip
