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!

Dose of Colors: Lipstick Swatches…

Happy Friday dolls!

Today I am sharing with you my second part to the Dose of Colors lip products that I promised you all. Below I have swatched six of the beautiful colors that were sent to me! These all have to be my favorite shades of lipsticks. I have a deep love for anything nude, peach or pink. I have applied these to my brides while here in CA and love how they look for wedding/bridal makeup. If you are on the hunt for a great color for your wedding day, check out my swatch for “Soft Touch” HERE! To see more about these creamy long wear lipsticks, read on below… XOX

Get the ultimate pretty pouty lip with these beautiful creamy smooth lipsticks from Dose of Colors

  • Poise- a true brownish nude. This is the most perfect nude on the lips, it is your classic neutral toned lipstick and is beautiful mixed with any other colors.
  • Coy- a pastel orangey peach. This is a very vibrant peach tone, looks great with gold smokey eyes or a more natural eye.
  • Angelic- a beigne toned peach/nude. This is like a cross between Coy and Poise mixed.
  • Soft Touch- a baby doll powder pink. This is probably my top favorite color of them all. I have found it to be a perfect wedding day lipstick for brides. It also is the best true baby pink I have found yet!
  • Play Date- this is a pastel pink. Great color for Summertime and paired with a bronzy blush.
  • Seductive. Magenta hot pink. If you want to stand out above the rest, this is the color for you. Hot pink kisses!

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…
