FOTD! 12/31/2011

Hi Everyone! I'm so excited to share this look with you! I was playing with make up today... and I really really wish I would have filmed a tutorial to this look! If you guys want to see it, then just leave a comment here or on my YT channel and I will be sure to film it ASAP! 

I used the Beauties Factory 120 Palette, version 2 I believe.. basically, you just need a matte yellow, green, and black... cut the crease, and blend some gray and gold above the crease... white shimmery highlight for the inner corner and under the brow and I used MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick! <3

So I wanted to share a few pigments with you guys since I'm talking about pigments. These are from the I-Candy Couture signature line of pigments...


This pigment above is called Liliko-i, which means passion fruit in Hawaii. It's pronounced lily koi and it's a beautiful orange shade. It's nearly duo-chrome and it has a nice pink hue to it, with some purple shimmer to it. It's a shimmer shade with a satin texture. The full ingredients are listed on http://i-candycouture.com!





 This shade is called Maui and it's a mix between a shimmer and a matte shadow. It has a silk finish, and also green reflects mixed within. It's named after the island in Hawaii that Honey, the founder and owner of http://i-candycouture.com, was born and raised in. Ingredients are listed on the site!

 And finally, this is one of my favorites... Ice Queen. It's nearly duo-chrome and it's great for a silvery smokey eye or all over the lid color. It's basically like a gun metal color. Ingredients are listed at http://i-candycouture.com

All pigments are just $4.00 for 4 grams worth of product! Or you can opt to check out a sample size of each which comes in a clam package for just $1.00 to see how the color suits you!

This is actually last week's nail polish of the week, I've just been a little bit busy with finals for the semester and what not! This is Avon Nailwear Pro in the shade Violet Sparkle and it is absolutely amazinggg! I <3 it!

It's a deep plummy color with some gold shimmer in it, although after you apply it the shimmer is very minimal. It's must more noticeable in the bottle than on your natural nails.

Nails of the Week & The Revealing Of Last Week's Polishes!






This gorgeous green festive polish is Zoya in the shade "Holly." If you've watched my latest Birchbox video, then you would know it was included in my November Birchbox, so obviously I was super excited, so I had to try it out. This polish does have a significant amount of sparkle to it, but don't be surprised by the photo, it only is very noticeable in the light (or the obvious flash of the camera) so your nails won't look like a disco ball 24/7. Excuse the photo, I didn't clean up around my nails until after I took the picture. 

But let's talk about last week's Nails of the Week in case you missed it. I didn't share what type of polishes I used to create this funky blue/purple look, because I was conducting a little experiment, but now I'll reveal them to you...




These are the shades "Teal" and "Purple" by the brand NK. These polishes were very affordable (Only $1 at my local dollar store). I wanted to see how such cheap polish would hold up, since I am all about beauty on a budget, I thought this would be a fun experiment. These polishes did not start significantly chipping until about day 8. I decided to wear these polishes for 10 days to give them a maximum run, hence why this NOTW is so postponed.

I was pleasantly surprised with how well they held up, I also purchase the NK nail enamel top coat and used that, rather than OPI's top coat. The top coat made my nails very shiny, and these polishes surprisingly dried very quickly. I bought quite a few shades in these polishes, because I figured, at the very least, they would be nice bright colors to use for nail art designs if anything. 

So, there you have it. You don't need to spend $18 on a MAC nail polish or even $10 on an OPI polish to achieve results. Hell, no one will even know what type of nail polish you've got on. If you don't have a lot of money to spend on beauty products, then don't feel bad for buying cheaper. The products often work the same, or very similar. =)

Face of the Day, November 3, 2011

Just because it's almost winter doesn't mean you can't play around with colors, right?! I recently purchased the Wet n Wild Blue Had Me At Hello palette, thanks to emilynoel83 on YouTube! I've been more into trying out blue shadows lately, however I did not use any of the blue shades in this particular look. However, I do like the way it turned out. For some reason I feel like when I photograph a particular look a lot of the color gets washed out of the photo.. I'll have to work on messing with the settings to my camera. Here is a list of all the products used!


Face:
Mark Face Primer
Stila One Step Foundation in Tone
Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Concealer in 230 Corrector for under eyes
Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Concealer in 210 Light to spot conceal random areas
Maybelline Shine Free Loose Powder in Medium
NYC Sunny Bronzer to contour
Wet n Wild Blush in Pearlescent Pink
Cover Girl Blush in Natural for a highlight


Eyebrows:
ELF Eyebrow Kit Shadow & Wax


Eyes: 
Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Concealer in 230 Corrector as a base
Wet n Wild Blue Had Me At Hello palette, silver on half of lid, sparkly black on other half, greenish brow color in crease, sea green shimmery color in crease, and white brow color directly under the brows
Covergirl Eye Enhancers in Shimmering Onyx to lightly line the eyelid
Cover Girl Perfect Point Plus Eye Liner in Black Onyx on Waterline
L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes 


Lips:
Covergirl lipstick in Sweetheart

Nails of the Week - Can You Guess?

So, this week I opted to do a little experimenting. I'm not going to post the names of these two nail polishes until I do the nails of the week for next week. I took this photograph today, but I actually painted my nails on Sunday. Sorry for the delay.


Can anyone guess what two nail polishes these are? I bet you will be pleasantly surprised!

BTW, for anyone who was wondering, when I used the ELF Chocolate nail polish last week, and I used the base coat underneath, it did not stain my natural nails. However, the polish was somewhat difficult to get off. Not necessarily on my actual nails, but I found that the brown shade smeared all over the tips of my fingers. Kind of unpleasant, but a lot better with a base coat than the red shade I used that my natural nails are STILL stained from! Looks like I won't be sporting a french manicure until all of that grows out!

Face of the Day, October 30, 2011!



Today, I really wanted to do a more modern spin on a classic pin up look. So I opted to use a white shimmery shadow for the lid and highlight, as opposed to matte. While I did use matte browns in the crease, using a crease brush to blend out really helped to carry down some of the shimmer to give an overall effect that I was pleased with. Winged cat liner also helps to make the lashes appear longer. I also toned down the lips by using a lip stain that was in a deeper shade of red rather than a bright fire-engine red. I hope you all enjoy and can find some inspiration in this! =) Stay beautiful! And here's the list of products used!
 
Face:
Avon Ideal Shade Liquid Foundation in Natural Beige
Avon Healthy Make Up Concealer in Fair
Maybelline Shine Free Loose Powder in Medium
ELF Complexion Perfection
NYC Bronzer in Sunny
ELF Studio Blush in Peachy Keen
ELF Studio Blush in Gotta Glow for Highlight

Eyebrows:

Polish of the Week =)





So I decided to give ELF polishes another chance. After the first time I used an ELF polish in a red shade, it stained my natural nails to a pinkish color. (I did not use a base coat, FYI.) So this time I thought, since I had bought maybe five or so ELF shades, I would give a more festive fall color a shot. This time I chose the color Chocolate, and used a simple Japanese nail art polish in gold glitter that I bought off of eBay to run along the tips. I'm not sure why my camera tinted this picture a purple-ish hue. I really like this look and I think it's pretty festive for the season! =)

If you're interested in ELF products, they are available at http://eyeslipsface.com or at your local Target, if your state or country has a Target. This nail polish was only a dollar! One coat was pretty pigmented, and two coats really did the job. Apply a nice top coat, I used OPI, and you're set to go!

Face of the Day, October 20, 2011


I wanted to play around with some colors this morning, and I decided to do an Autumn inspired "bonfire" look. I especially wanted to do some color dabbling since I am returning back to my job from maternity leave on Monday, and can't wear such bright and bold make up there, since it is a law office. So I came up with this bonfire inspired look using yellows, oranges, reds and browns. I hope you all enjoy!

Polish of the Week =)

Avon Speed Dry Nail Enamel in Limeade

This week I opted for a very summer-ish color, setting aside the fact that we are already into fall. It was on sale through Avon for only $1.99 so I had to pick it up. It's a very sheer and satin light green, and the color is buildable. The photo above shows two coats of the polish, along with OPI's top coat. 

If you wish to purchase this polish, you can visit my Avon store here. The polish may or may not still be available depending on their quantities and supplies left. However, I'm sure it will make a reappearance next spring. =)

PS - The date stamp on my photo is incorrect, of course! I forgot to turn it off, hehe.
