Aaliyah Try Again Inspired Makeup
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


 

Recreating a look from the beautiful baby girl again. This time from her Try Again music video. This was when we really began to see Aaliyah break out into edgier looks. You don’t get to see much detail of her makeup in this video so I did my best to work with the little bit of it I could see.

 

So dark, edgy, and daring. I love it.

and here’s the tutorial!

 

here’s what I used:

MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation
MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Deep Dark
Sumaita Eyebrow Pencil
Sugarpill Bulletproof Eyeshadow
LA Splash Sealer
LA Splash Glitter in Rock Star
Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara
Smashbox Limitless Eyeliner
Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder
MAC Blunt Blush
MAC Coppertone Blush
MAC Chestnut Lip Pencil
MAC Freckletone Lipstick
Smashbox Illume Lipgloss

 

Until next time babies <3

I’m not gonna lie, from time to time I get requests for tutorials using pink eyeshadow and I DESPISE pink eyeshadow. It’s just one of the few colors, in my opinion, that doesn’t belong on the eyes lol

But anyhow, I got inspired to use my new 120 color palette that My Beauty Mark Cosmetics sent me, so this is what I came up with! I blame Nicki Minaj for this look (doesn’t it look like something she would rock?) That, and staying up at odd hours of the night gazing at makeup inspiration photos for some of the ideas I come up with!

 

yummy, right? ;-)

Aaliyah We Need a Resolution Inspired Makeup
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


 

Look number 3 from my series!

AND it’s been the most requested too! This is the dark eye/red lip look Aaliyah is rocking in the vid.

This is one of my favorite Aaliyah songs (Rock the Boat being number one) so I was pleased to do this look, and was pleased with how fab it turned out with the products I was working with.


How Stunning was Aaliyah in this video? We really began to see her aging gracefully from teenage star to young lady in this album. *tears*

I really really love how glamorous this look feels. I think her makeup artist was phenomenal. I didn’t know this but according to a viewer of mine her makeup artist also passed away in the plane crash that took Aaliyah’s life.  Today we celebrate their life, recognize their talent and may they continue to inspire for generations to come.

I hope you guys enjoyed <3

As announced on my YouTube channel this month I will be paying tribute to the late Aaliyah Dana Haughton by creating some of my favorite makeup looks of hers. I’m starting this series off with my absolute favorite Aaliyah song, Rock The Boat.
