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.

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!

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.

Ipsy Gem Liner by Starlooks ~ First Impression

Hey guys!

Oh yeah!!! I’m back with this week’s edition of Ipsy product which is nothing than this pretty and glittery eyeliner in Ultra Orchid. I mentioned it in my last week’s ipsy unboxing post. I’m very excited to finally have the chance to do this first impression review on this eyeliner.

First of all, I’m quite satisfied with Starlooks makeup brand. I learned about this brand through ordering the monthly subscription glam bag from Ipsy. This week’s bag has the theme Girl Meets Glitter and believe it or not? I got almost everything glitter except the hair spray.

For today’s makeup look. I just use 3 makeup products:

ipsy makeup products

Anyways, I did my usual cat eye look using this lovely ultra orchid eyeliner. Oh my goodness! It’s so soft and creamy. It glides so well and every stroke is magical. It comes with 6 gorgeous shades to select at Starlooks online.

Step 1 – I apply using my eye base and it has a golden metallic finish. I’m not putting any eyeshadow for this look since I wanted the focus to be the eyeliner only.

Step 2 – I use the ultra orchid eyeliner to glide and draw a perfect cat eye look. I apply it to the top lash and bottom lash too.

Step 3 – Next, I also did a tight liner on my top waterline. A tutorial guide on how to do a tight line will be up very soon.

Step 4 – If you have a white eyeliner, use it to draw a bottom waterline to make eyes looked bigger.

I can wear this both for day and night for a more dramatic look especially for this coming holidays. This gem eyeliner is smooth and creamy to use. This liner stays for a good 5-6 hours with an eye base.

Oh yes, a short note of caution is that it has those micro-glitters that migrates to the cheek due to rubbing. For those who has sensitive eyes, you might want to avoid this because the micro-glitter might cause some irritation to the eyes. If you got it in your ipsy bag and has sensitive eyes, I would suggest to just use it as an eye base instead of an eyeliner.

In terms of the pricing, it is a little bit steep for an eyeliner product and I personally will not repurchase because I prefer to wear my staple black liner color. But I’ll still continue to wear it for this holiday season or until I got tired of wearing it.

So, my question is would you pay $16.00 for this Starlooks eyeliner? Love to hear from you.

Thank you for reading.

I just received my November’s Ipsy bag yesterday. Since I’m always excited to unbox my Ipsy Glam bag, I’m doing a special edition posting today to share what I’ve got in my November’s bag. This month’s bag came in a plastic silver metallic glitter purse by Forever 21. The theme is Girl Meets Glitter!

There are 5 beauty products in this glam bag. Let’s see what’s in:-

5) S/B Highlighter by Temptu (value at $27.50 regular size net wt: 1 fl oz) ~ received in sample size

Sample I received was in 0.1 fl oz in a tiny tube bottle. Available in 4 different shades. It claims to brings a natural radiance to the complexion with colors designed to highlight and emphasize eyes, cheeks and other features. Long lasting for all day wear. A choice of 4 different shades.

Total bag value: $70.59.  

Since, I’m more interested in testing makeup than hair and skincare products, Ipsy is my personal favorite. It consistency delivers phenomenal value and different established makeup brands that I really love. So far I’m liking it since I always love to try on new makeup and brands.

For this month’s glam bag, I would say I’m not very keen with all these glittery products but hey, it’s for the holiday season where sparkles and glitters are so in. Therefore, for special occasion it is.

The subscription of Ipsy glam bag is available online. I’ve put a link here . The cost is $10.00 a month on a rolling subscription or $110 for 12 months subscription free delivery in the United States and about $4.75 shipping cost for Canada. Best thing is that you can cancel anytime. It will be a nice experience to discover new makeup products for just $10 a month. How cool is that?

Top 3 Tuesday Favorite High-end Lip gloss

Hello friends!

It’s November already? Oh…wow! Time do flies when I’m busy writing my daily blog! As usual, since it’s Tuesday, I better get on with my Top 3 favorites on high end lip gloss. This week I’ll be doing only Top 3 Tuesday fave instead of Top 5 on the high end makeup.

These are my favorite high end lip gloss which I love and has been using. I can foresee myself wearing them more often now as the weather draws colder and throughout the holiday seasons!

top 3 favorite lip gloss

Top -Bottom :Too Faced Glamour Gloss in First Time ($19.00)/Smashbox Santigold in Hot Lava($12.00 on special)/Starlooks Lip Gloss in Guilty Pleasure (regular size pack $12.00)

color swatches

Oh my gosh! Look at these color swatches. They are simply gorgeous. I picked these because of the smooth and easy to apply formula each of these lip gloss provides. It gives a lovely glossy finish which was not gloppy. I did my reviews before on blogs some several weeks ago. The price for the high end lip gloss are a little bit more expensive than the drugstore brands but once in a while I love to indulge myself with a special treat. I know that I will be wearing them often and it won’t go to waste. For me, that’s great value. Overall, all my top 3 favorites lip gloss which I have selected has best value for great quality products.

I would recommend that you try any one of the lip gloss above and let me know how it fairs for you? I like to hear what you think?

In this image I put 3 of the above lip gloss on. Can you spot which color shade I put and where?

Thanks for participating and stopping by.

Starlooks Lip gloss in Guilty Pleasure 

Hi guys, I shared my Ipsy Glam bag on my previous post and I promised that I will make a review on some of the makeup and skincare once I have tried them. So, I really like this particular lip gloss by Starlooks. It came in a small sample size packaging. Would be an excellent idea to bring along in a travel purse. I got mine in Guilty Pleasure in peachy pink.

Packed in a translucent tube which comes with a doe foot applicator. This is a sample size lip gloss.

I love the color shade since it’s not too pink. The outside packaging looks opaque but it’s very glossy when I tried it on.

The color swatch of the lip gloss looks opaque and matte but wait until it’s on the lips.

The up side of this lip gloss is the ability to give a glistering finish look without feeling sticky. It’s formulated to have a creamy effect while providing a long lasting gloss.

Nice! kissable lips starlook

I wore it alone without applying any lippie and I like how natural it looks. My lips felt moisturized and I can wear this all the time.

It’s available in 8 different gloss shades to choose from and it’s price for $12.00 for regular size tube.

What is your favorite lip gloss?

Thanks for stopping by.
