Two Toned Eyeliner & Anastasia Lip Gloss

I was recently sent the gorgeous new Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss set to try out and fell in love with the Nude set. It has six beautiful shades of neutral tone goodness! These glosses are not only gorgeously pigmented, but they smell like literal sugar. In the look below I am wearing Dainty {peach} mixed with Vintage {rose}, to create a dusty rose lip! I am also sporting a wicked liner. Winged liner is my go-to for my every day makeup. I never get sick of a slick black wing, but I like to change it up sometimes. So today I am sharing the products I use to create a bronzed two-tone wing! I am also wearing the new Huda Beauty Mink lashes in “Raquel”, a very wispy, thick and long lash!
Hope you enjoy!

Two Tone Liner: To create this playful style of winged liner, it is very simple. Draw a winged liner as thick as you desire how you  regularly would. Second, use an angled eyeliner brush, and a sparkle bronze color. Over line the beginning of the inner corner of liner to the middle of the eye with the bronzed shadow. This will create an “ombre” effect to the liner from light to dark. Apply mascara or false lashes. Complete!

Purple Vibes…

Happy Tuesday beautiful babes!

I have been obsessed lately with purple lips. I usually would NEVER wear this color, because I am stuck in my ways and love that sexy-nude-lip, BUT, this color is the exception. Most of the products used to create this look are from my favorite woman, Anastasia Beverly Hills. Her products are always super quality and gorgeous, and I think they are affordable as well. I also used a brand new foundation created by the talented MakeupbyLilit. This full coverage and lightweight foundation is great for ALL skin types, I have semi-oily skin and it holds really well on mine! See more below!

Soft Glamour: Dewy Skin Tricks

Hello Darlings!
Today I will be sharing with you one of the looks I created on the gorgeous Kelly Clark for the Borboleta Beauty site! I love soft-glam looks and anything that still looks natural on the skin. When it comes to foundation, I am all about letting the skin still breathe and show through the makeup. Finding products that will not create that “Cake” or heavily powdered look can be tricky. My favorite thing to keep the skin looking healthy and not covered up is to apply a moisturizing setting spray at the end. This is super important to create that “Dewy/Glowy” look. Check out my favorite spray below as well as how to create this soft look!

Dewy Skin…
Setting Spray: Mario Badescu Rosewater – this ultra moisturizing spray will help to create that glowing look after applying powder. I like to spray it hands-length away from the face twice in an X motion. Take a clean big fluffy face brush and pat the skin with it, this will press the moisture into the makeup and create that look. I love the Rose smell to this spray as well. It has Aloe & Herbs for a nice refreshing feel!

Powder: Amazing Cosmetics Powder set – Set your entire face with a loose translucent powder to create a blank canvas for the contour!

‘Tis The Season For Red…

Good Morning Sweets!

‘Tis the season to shine! Its time to dust off your sparkly dresses and glam up your beauty routine with hints of red! To help get you in the spirit, today I am sharing with you a holiday bridal look that I created on the gorgeous, Kendyl Bell. She wanted a very glamorous Winter look, so of course we had to do some bright ombre red lips! I used two of my favorite products to create this look, House of Lashes in “Iconic” & Lime Crime Velvetine lip stain! I wanted to do a review on these two because they give the perfect finishing touches to this seasonal makeup!

Enjoy…

IMG_8914

Lime Crime Velvetine in “Red Velvet” – This velvet to matte lip creme is gorgeous for photos and every day wear. Spice up your Xmas by wearing this paired with golden eyes or a sophisticated wing! I always suggest these for clients who are taking engagement photos or wedding day because they stay on even through the kissing! Line your lips completely with a darker toned lip liner {2 shades darker than the red to create the “Ombre” look} then fill in the center of the lips with the matte creme!

de636f56b3b4a0cf8688b2cb2d26b6b3

IMG_8918Lashes: House of Lashes in “Iconic” – These spikey fluffy lashes are so perfect for opening up the eyes and creating a really dramatic look to the eyes! The band on these lashes is a little thicker than normal to allow all the hairs to be supported, so if you have sensitive eyes I would suggest trying a lash a little bit thinner. For those who don’t mind the band these lashes will look great on you! I love applying them to round eyes because they really open them up even more! They are also reusable up to 5 times when you take good care of them! House of Lashes always supplies high quality lashes!

The Perfect Dose…

I am finally back in the States and couldn’t be happier to be in San Diego for work! I was fortunate enough to travel to many amazing places over the last month, but missed my work and clients so much! Today I am sharing with you part 1 of my review for the amazing Dose Of Colors! I came home to the most generous care package filled with these beauties from Anna, and couldn’t wait to play around with them instantly! These lipsticks, glosses and stains are top of the line quality and a must for everyone! My eyes instantly were attracted to the matte lipstick, “Kiss of Fire”, a bright blue toned red! These matte colors glide on smooth and dry to a matte finish with ultra long staying power! Check them out HERE! Dose of Colors also carries more neutral tones, peaches, pinks, and even purples! See how I created this simple yet chic look below…

Monday Makeover: Natural Nudes

 

 

Oh how I love to do makeup on this gorgeous Canadian! You may recognize her from a post last month with the vampy lips! I recently did her makeup again for a fashion shoot and was able to do a more normal and neutral toned look on her. Sometimes it is a shame to do makeup on girls as beautiful as Marina, she literally needs nothing! So don’t judge because I would rather her wear none! I created a brown smoked out wing for her eyes and a touch of nude to her lips and skin! Check out this Monday Makeover below…

Feeling Flawless: Traditional Bride Makeup

Good Morning!

Today I am sharing with you the gorgeous bridal shots from one of my best friends weddings this past weekend! I was lucky enough to doll her up for all her events and photos! We did a very chic cat-eye look for her bridals, a smokey eye for her boudoirs {HERE}, and a sultry silver & black look for her wedding day. Working on this girls face is a piece of cake, she has flawless brows and beautiful skin. She was one of the first brides in a while where I didn’t use airbrush, we used Frankie Rose and Tom Ford foundation mixed for each look. To get her super flawless skin I used my nifty Beauty Blender- If you don’t have yourself one of these eggs, I would suggest to get up right night and pick one up! You wont regret it!

To One Year Wiser…

Happy Friday from CA!

Well I just got to San Diego and will be out here working for the next week and I couldn’t be more excited to see my family and friends for my birthday today! The weather is gorgeous and the beach is calling my name! I am so lucky to call California home 🙂 Today I wanted to share a quick preview of a fun & whimsical shoot I did with the amazing Andra for my b-day! She had a fun idea of having balloons and being out in a gorgeous field, and I couldn’t resist! I was so in awe with how the photos turned out, she really is the most phenomenal photographer in Utah and I cannot wait to use her again! I used all of my favorite makeup products to create this light makeup look, including: Huda Beauty, Frankie Rose, Dior, Gerard Cosmetics, and Too Faced to name a few! I will do a full tutorial on this look soon, but for now I’m off to the sand!

Love you all <3

XOXO

Foundation: “Earth Yellow” Camo Cosmetics with a Luxie Lush stippling brush

Concealer: LA Girl in “Classic Ivory”- these are wonderful creaseless concealers that work perfect for hiding dark circles or brightening up the under eyes! {review to come}

Blush: AOM Cosmetics “Dainty Doll”– this is a gorgeous pearl pink with flecks of highlight. I would suggest this for all skin types. Super high quality & pigmented.

Highlighter: AOM Cosmetics in “Candlelight” – my new favorite highlighter on the planet – this is a beautiful pearl/white highlight that adds the perfect amount of glow to the skin. I would compare it to MAC Soft and Gentle and Becca Opal mixed!

Eyeshadows: AOM HD shadows-

  1. Bare Canvas- apply all over the lid to create a nude base
  2. Espresso- apply Espresso to the inner corner of the eye and the outer corner of the eye creating a “Smokey” effect on each corner.
  3. Molton- Apply this with a wet brush to the center of the lid for a pop of bronzed shimmer.
  4. Glow- pop this shadow on top of Molton to create that beige-bronze color

.Liner on bottom: Line the eyes with white liner- LA Girl in “White”

Brown shadow on bottom: add the “Espresso” with an angled brush along the bottom lash line and blend with a Q-tip.

Lashes: Huda Beauty in the NEW “Samantha” pre-stacked lashes applied with Huda Beauty lash glue! I have to rant about these a bit… I am absolutely in LOVE with them to say the least. I have been stacking lashes {applying two} to my eyes for so long because I love the look of overly thick, long, black lashes. Finally I have found a pair that is natural but still thick and makes my eyes look big and beautiful! Thank you Huda for making such a beautiful style of lashes, they really are the most comfortable, high quality and stunning lashes.

As you all know, I wear Huda lashes majority of the time and use them on most of my clients- they are currently being sold only in Dubai but will be shipping world wide soon, and once they are you must all try them! I will be doing a fun giveaway soon with these lashes, so please check back!

Lips: LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint in “Babydoll” – These are beautiful lip glosses that come out like thick creamy lipstick. I love the texture of them and they last super long. This color lasted me three hours through my beauty event! {review to come}

 

Shimmering & Glowing Beauty: Shaliece Marie

Happy hump day! Today I am so excited to share with you all this glowing look I created on the stunning international model, Shaliece Marie.

We went for a very classic look, focusing mostly on the eyes and keeping the skin very clean and dewy. This is a look that I would do for any client, but this especially looks good in photos. To learn more about how to achieve this chic look, keep reading!
