Playing around with liner

Hey ladies :)

Long time since I have posted... I've been busy busy busy... but I have been practicing some different looks... I don't know why I didn't take photos of the looks I have done recently (dumb me) but I will get back to posting my looks of the day and what not. I just had an interview to work at Sephora part time over the holiday season, so hopefully I get it! :) I ordered soooooo much makeup this past month, I think I may have literally like tripled my makeup stash! I'll be doing swatches and reviews soon of everything I have done... But for right now, I just wanted to post photos of this look I did just playing around :)

Cut Crease Look

So I have been wanting to try this look for a while. I did it on both eyes and did it slightly different on each. On my left eye I put the crease a little higher up than on my right eye. I think I prefer the right eye over the left. I like the crease a bit lower... but overall I think the look came out really nice. I need a bit more practice at it, but for a first try I don't think I did too bad! Anyway I will edit this post tomorrow and add all the colors and how I did it.. I'm too tired to add all that now... but take a look and let me know what you think! Ciao bellas :)

Edit: Ok so tried this kind of look one more time, but this time I used The She Space pigments... first off, how gorgeous are the colors??!!! I love them! I am really happy with how the final look came out. It looks really vibrant and stuff... anyway I will again post all the colors I used and what not tomorrow... just did this look and had to upload it. Hope you like it! and thanks for stopping by!!!!

Pretty Blues

Ok so I wanted to try this look out that I saw on one of these blogs that I saw which I now follow, her makeup is always ridiculously pretty, like stunning, I love it. This is her link . Anyway she does this look with an eyeliner that she calls a banana look. I am not good at this at all (just admitting it now lol, but I am trying to learn how to do it). So my very good girlfriend let me use her to try this look out. The left eye was the eye I did first (it's not so good as you can see) then I tried it out on the other eye and the look came out slightly better. It still is no where near as good as Eva's but I am still learning the technique. I think overall the look came out decent and the blue looked gorgeous on her! Well she is gorgeous... but the color made her eyes pop! Let me know what you think :)

Products Used:

Mac Studio fix fluid foundation in NC25
Mac concealer (don't remember exact kind)
Coastal scents contouring kit

Mac painterly paint pot as base
Nyx cream liner in blue
88 color palette that I have (not sure who makes it) that is what I used for all the eye shadow I used.

Hope you like, and thanks for looking :)

So here it is.... let me know what you think :)

Products Used:

Mac Studio Fix fluid foundation in NC35

I was sad the holiday was over and everything went back to normal work everyday lol... but such is life... it's late and I'm tired so I don't have much time to post anything... but I wanted to show you my look of the day...

She Space Pigment Look


Man today was a very blah day... I woke up this morning mega late which sucked and I was rushing like a crazy women to get to work and as I am getting ready to walk my dog and leave I notice that he had a major accident in the apartment... GROSSSSSS so I ended up cleaning that up for twenty minutes and was late ugh :( Poor thing, I felt so bad for him too, he was scared and stuff cause he's house trained but I guess he really had to go... SOOO that was the start of my morning... awful right? Well anyway I didn't have time to do my makeup, so I did it quickly when I came home on my lunch break... I recently found this website the she space... it's totally cute and she sells really good products, the link is www.theshespace.com . You should check it out and try out some of her pigments... anyway I ordered a ton of colors and have been so busy with my two jobs that I haven't even really tried out looks with them! aaaah, so I decided to use them today and this is the look I came up with :) Let me know what you think.... :)
