Anyway, something I’ve been trying to do recently on Instagram is to document my daily makeup looks. I’ve started something specific like lips, nails and eyes on Instagram and I thought why not do a compilation of my makeup look for the week and share it here in my blog.

So, I tried to do colorful eyes each day. Here are the look I created for the week. I really like the way everything came out together.Let me know which day is your favorite EOTD pick? Your encouragement will definitely motivate  and inspires me to do more.

Makeup Ideas for Evening Wear

 

 

pexels-photo-large

 

 

For women that love to get all dolled up, there doesn’t seem to be enough formal occasions throughout the year to show off your stunning dress collection and flawless makeup skills. Although many will continue to argue whether ladies dress for themselves or for their company, the Great Debate as Bustle calls it, no one can deny how much of a confidence boost you get from that breathtaking floor-length number that has been sat
in the back of your closet for months on end.

As the fashion experts from Lyst have indicated, evening dresses and fairy-tale gowns really up the after-dark wow factor, but the entire ensemble could look like a hot mess if you haven’t got the right makeup on. After all, your dress can only do so much.

To keep your evening look on point, consider the following makeup styles:

Strong Brows and Bold Lips

Your eyes may be the windows to your soul, but no one will be able to look  past the surface if your eyebrows aren’t groomed. Don’t be afraid to go  bold with your brows, remembering to go a few shades lighter, as advised by Glamour, and match it with matte lips to  avoid the retro vibe. This is great for those that aren’t a fan of heavy makeup.

The Sexy Cat Eye

Add to the drama with the perfect cat eye. This can be a bit tricky though and may lead to unnecessary layering to the point you resemble Amy Winehouse, thus you probably should use beauty tape or a business card to keep your eyes even, and the eyeliner flicks sharp.

Shimmery Eyeshadow

Evening looks aren’t always about the dark rocker makeup. In fact, day smoky styles translate pretty well into the night, and if you want to experiment with other shimmers, silver will blend beautifully with your darker shadows, brightening up your eyes while still maintaining that go-to smoky technique that most of us rely on. Check out Cosmopolitan for an easy-to-follow info-graphic.

Tell us about your favorite evening makeup looks.

Question Tuesday! How Fast Can You Be Ready?

 

 

Hey girls!!

I hope you had a great weekend!! I sure did! I’ve been busy working on some tips to speed up my makeup routine.

be ready
by source

Here are some helpful tips and tricks I find that save my day. I hope these could help you too:

First thing first:-

  • Set up an area on your vanity or bathroom counter to lay out your makeup and tools. They’ll be easier to find than in an overstuffed bag.
  • Choose neutral rather than trendy makeup colors so you don’t have to spend time trying to coordinate them. Make sense right!
  • A pencil eyeliner is easier to handle (and so, quicker) than a liquid or gel especially when you’re in a hurry.
  • Don’t use mascara on your lower lashes. It smudges, and takes time to clean up.
  • Before you apply mascara, roll the brush on a tissue to get rid of clumps so that they won’t end up on your lashes (where you’ll waste time getting them off).
  • Switch to a tinted moisturizer with SPF. It hydrates, evens out your skin tone, protects against UV rays, and is easier to blend than foundation
  • Look for long-wearing formulas. You won’t need to touch up as often.

Thanks for taking the time to read and I’ll see you very soon 🙂 Bye guys!

Why Is Beauty Blender A MUST?

 

I was very intrigued by the Beauty Blender. I suspect it’s because of the hot pink color egg or tear drop shape which is made for the face. Is it just a sponge you may ask? Wrong! This is the most amazing sponge I’ve ever seen.  I was skeptical at first but now I don’t ever apply foundation without it.

I got this Beauty Blender from the Paint It Pink box I received from Sephora recently.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s why :

  1. It makes your foundation application looks flawless as if you’re not wearing anything. It’s so easy to work for blending.
  2. You can use it for any type of liquid products, for example foundation, concealer, bb cream, bronzer or blush.
  3. It makes hard to reach areas such as under the eyes, around the nose, and corners of the mouth easy to get to with the small pointy end of the sponge.
  4. Beauty blender can help sheer out more of the excess product from looking or face feeling like wearing a mask.
  5. It doesn’t absorb the foundation like an actual sponge does, your foundation will actually go further with this.
  6. It comes in pink, grey, black, purple or white. Well, I must say they’re all cute.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I would love to hear from you in the comments below why is beauty blender a must have in case I missed out some important pointers.

What’s your favorite method to apply your makeup?

Thanks guys for visiting & Happy READING! Bye!

the Balm Balmsai – Review & Swatches

 

 

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by the blog today.

Ahhhh!!! Today is a good day to talk about Balmsai Eyeshadow and Brow Palette by the Balm. The weather is nice with spring finally here. Surprisingly, we had a quite a nice winter if it’s not for my health conditions.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A new thing to me that I wanted to share today is this big size palette by the Balm I just received a few days ago.

I always get super hyped when I see the Balm palettes and tempted to purchase every time at their website.

Let’s take a look!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

the Balm Balmsai Palette includes 18 shades you can use for lids, liners and you also get an additional 3 brow shades and two transparent eye stencils/brow guide. Wouldn’t you feel like you can just dive right in! It says on the palette that you can either wear them wet or dry, intense with more drama or for just an everyday basic look.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I like all in one palette as they’re easy to travel with. It housed a good color selections of taupe and neutral brown shadows. The packaging is made from a sturdy cardboard just as their staple packaging from the Balm. I find that the slip cover useful because it could hold the palette tightly to avoid wear and tear while travelling. The outer box is a whimsical art featuring beach girl in her swimsuit.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In terms of the size you got quite a decent amount of products from this palette. My brush fits just fine into them. Yay!

Overall, I’m just loving everything in this palette. Awesome pigmented eye shadows and the color variety is the best point about this palette. I find it to be versatile and this one may be my favorite, great spring and summer colors.

Saturday Guest Post: How to Make Your Eyes Look Younger by Emma Lawson

 

 

My first guest blogger of the year is Emma Lawson.  I’m absolutely thrilled that she is here to write-up a guest post for this blog. Don’t forget to check out her blog and give her a follow. Click her links at the end of this post.

 

How to Make Your Eyes Look Younger

They say that eyes are the window to the soul. But what do your eyes say about you? Are you getting enough beauty sleep? Are you using the right products and maintaining a balanced diet? These are all factors that can greatly contribute to how your eyes will appear. If you are constantly dealing with bags under your eyes or the wrinkles around them make you look much older than you really are, perhaps it is time to change some of your habits. These things can be managed quite easily, with only a few of these simple tricks:

Diet

diet

It is in the inside what counts, right? Well, before you start looking for alternative procedures to fix your baggy eyes, you should first consider your diet. What you eat can have a great effect on your overall appearance. What you should start implementing into your diet are foods that are rich with antioxidants which will help you with inflammations and puffiness and actually help you with clear signs of aging and pollutants. Other than that, consider foods that contain high levels of vitamin C like leafy greens, strawberries and citrus fruits, as they are known to prevent wrinkles and dry skin but also some more severe conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration.

Face Masks

face mask

Another great way to fend off wrinkles and clear signs of aging is by relying on homemade masks. Keep in mind that the skin around the eyes is very thin and that is why fine lines and crow’s feet will first appear. Because of this, make use of your fresh foods to create natural remedies that will help you depuff your eyes, remove wrinkles and deep lines and also help soothe those dark circles and sagginess around them. Foods like sweet potatoes, cucumbers, pineapples, eggs and herbal teas are known to be quite effective against these annoying pests.

Makeup and Other Products

cream

When it comes to various beauty products that could help us in our battle for younger looking eyes, it is important to consider what kind of compounds are found in our cosmetics. When choosing your products, whether they are makeup or anti-aging creams, make sure they are based retinol, hydroxyl acids, niacinamide, tea extracts and coenzyme Q10. Vitamin C based creams are known to make the skin firmer, stimulate collagen synthesis and also prove antioxidant protection. It is also important to protect your skin from sun damage by applying sunscreen regularly, as too much sun exposure is known to cause older looking skin, brown spots, wrinkles and deep lines.

Beauty Sleep

sleep

In the end, do not forget to get appropriate amounts of sleep. Your beauty sleep will help you energize your body and prevent dark circles, bags and sagginess under your eyes.

As we get older, our skin will lose its elasticity, start producing wrinkles and show clear signs of aging. Of course, there is nothing you can do to stop aging, but these few simple tips can at least help you age gracefully. Implementing a few of these changes into your daily routine can greatly contribute to younger looking skin and eyes as well.

For The No-Makeup Lover This Valentine

 

 

There’s nothing quite like spicing up our beauty routine to make the season feel even merrier.

Sugar box eyeshadow palette

Did I mentioned that I enjoyed this Sugarbox palette so much that I’ve to grab another palette today for my collection. Yes, I’m a true eyeshadow palette addict and not going to apologize for it. I simply couldn’t have enough of them (whahaha!). I’ve put a link of previous palette in case you want to read more about it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In an effort to find the most stunning looks for a no-makeup makeup personality this Valentine, I’ve decided to use this Sugar Box Natural Eye Makeup Light in S-29. These ten shadows are of cool undertones.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Whether it’s Valentine or not, bold, glamorous makeup is not everyone’s cup of tea. But, you can still be a stunner with a minimal face. But first, let me show you some of these pretty shadows.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

check out some of the eye-popping products from the collection, and stay tuned for its May release.

swatches

It looks chalky when I pulled them out from the pan but it blends incredibly well on lids without any fallout. This palette offers a beautiful soft to medium color tones which I really love. These shades of neutral would be perfect for everyday office wear, in my opinion. Need an extra cushion for long lasting wear, best apply your eye primer first.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Not having enough of the swatches, I give you another pic of the second swatch. Voila! Amazing colors aren’t they!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

No fallout, lovely pigmentation, and no blends well. You couldn’t ask for more out of a amazing color palette formula. Color swatches on bare arm without primer. True to color and nice color payoff. A little goes a long way!

Makeup Tutorial in a Flash! 

I consider to be one step above the “no-makeup makeup” we’ve been seeing everywhere last year. For a skin natural-use a lightweight base and a dab of concealer under the eyes. The eyes are simple and dewy with a slightly shimmery rosy pink #5 shadow all over the lids, and  the a brown #3 shadow in the creases and magenta #4 on the outer line. Finish up with a simple wing wearing Starlooks Pro Eyeliner Pen and Hydra Lash mascara by Joe Fresh. 

You see, my point is to have the perfect makeup for being photographed — without going overboard. Now you’re totally ready to go out and enjoy your Valentine’s Day with your date!

Winged Eyeliner For Beginners 101

Okay, I got to put this put for all my friends here that some of you may know that I’m no beauty artist by profession but I love talking about beauty and obsessed with makeup.

Winged Line has got to the most unpredictable thing in makeup. You never know what shape you’ll end up with. One wrong move & you’ll have to think of ways to make it look right. I thought I’d share with you how I’ve been doing mine, because I think it’s almost mistake-proof. I’ve received many compliments from friends who commented on my winged liner over the past few posts. I wanted to express my thanks, you know who you are. This is how Winged Eyeliner for Beginners 101 begins.

This post is for anyone and everyone who wants to learn how to do a winged liner. Doing a winged liner is pretty tricky at first but once you’ve mastered it, it’ll come to you naturally.

By the way, this is how I lined my eyes in the Starlooks Pro Luxe Longwear Eyeliner Pen. It’s a sample product which I received from my August Ipsy Glam Bag. You can use any liquid eyeliner pen for that matter.

winged liner starlook

So, here’s a step-by-step tutorial:

  1. Apply eyeshadow on lid. Here I used a pink fuchsia shade on lid and purple on the crease. Start by using the eyeliner to draw a thin line on the outer corner as shown on picture on the far right. Like so.
  2. Then lining from center of lid towards the outer corner, stop after drawing 1/2 ” or so- as shown.
  3. Continue to line straight out. Make sure the end doesn’t exceed the end of your eyebrow tail.
  4. Now join from the outer end and bring it into the middle lash line of your eye.
  5. Line the rest of your eye starting from center to the inner corner. Try to make it thinner as it goes in.
  6. Time to fill inside the lines now& tightline the inner part of your eye now, so there’s no visible gaps.
  7. DONE!

Winged Eyeliner Final Look.

It’s up to you whether you want to line the lower lash line or not. I prefer not to do it. Lastly, I applied mascara on top & bottom lashes. But if you like, continue with your favorite falsies. Et voila! Hope this helps.

Quote taken from Melt Cosmetics “If you can handle liquid liner. You can handle anything life throws at you”.

What do you think of this winged eyeliner tutorial. Is this helpful. I love to hear your comments.

  • Time to fill inside the lines now& tightline the inner part of your eye now, so there’s no visible gaps.

cat eye liner step 3

  • DONE!

cat eye liner step 4

Only for this look did I applied eyeliner before eyeshadows. I’m using the Wet n’ Wild Color Icons 8-pan eyeshadow palette in Comfort Zone. I used the green and brown shadows which works magnificently. Up it with the beige color as highlighter. Touch up with mascara and I’m really to face the world!

Easy right! Go and try it now and let me know what’s your experience like. Good luck!

One Palette, Unlimited Possibilities: Vice 2 by Urban Decay

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Thank you for stopping by my post, lovelies!

vice 2 urban decay eyeshadow palete

It’s time for one of my favorite posts again!!! It’s One Palette, Unlimited Possibilites update. I love doing this series because it really makes me use my eyeshadow palettes. I love palettes, I love buying palettes, and I seem to love storing palettes too… Because unless I force myself, I will just use what I’m used to, instead of trying out all the different things I have. Am I the only one?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So for this post, I chose to use Vice 2 Eyeshadow Palette by Urban Decay. I chose this palette for one specific reason, you must have known that Urban Decay Vice 4 has been released and I just want to put out Vice 2 in the radar before the new palette gets all the hype.

eyeshadow vice 2

These shadows are amazing. They are soft and buttery. They don’t kick up a ton of powder, wasting product. They blend amazingly well. They are pigmented. And they last. My shadow didn’t budge one bit. Lastly, you want to know that the packaging is sturdy and portable.

vice eyeshadow 1

Let’s start with what I loved. I loved how the shadows were separated with the top half being cool and the bottom being warm and how they were arranged from lightest to darkest. For whatever reason, it appeals to me visually when shadows are arranged that way. These shadows were great. They were creamy and blended well, they were easy to use, and I had no complaints about their functionality.

smokey eye

Here is my EOTD look which I created using the pink and brown shadows from this palette.

vice eyeshadow

Overall, my opinion is that if you don’t own a ton of vibrant eyeshadows, or a ton of eyeshadow palettes, you might love this palette and it may be all you need. But seeing as I am an avid makeup collector and have other things like this .. it’s a winner in my book.

Final Look! Done!
EOTD Look!<3 

 

I hope you like this EOTD and you can hashtag or tweet me on the eye makeup look you create using Vice 2 Eyeshadow Palette. I have nothing negative to say about these. I love and recommend them. Go get you some!

Which Urban Decay Vice Palette would you be getting?  I love to hear from you in the comment below.
