No Makeup, Makeup Tutorial
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


 

You get it, right? ‘No makeup makeup’, it’s basically the kind of makeup that barely enhances what’s already there. Makeup without trying too hard. Makeup that could take you, literally, as little as 15 minutes to complete.

This look is everyday wearable, fresh, and also gives the skin the chance to breath WHILE getting SPF protection from the sun!

Aqua Eyes – Sugarpill Heartbreaker Palette
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


I haven’t been this excited about color in a LONG time!

Sugarpill recently launched a new four-color eyeshadow palette and I am digging it for the spring/summer. They’ve done it again!

Expect to see more from me using this bad boy! :D

I seriously LIVE for this palette, this line, and everything they stand for.

The palette comes with 4 HUGE shadows

Not that I’m super big on product packaging and stuff of that nature, not how can you not love the way these products are put together? So girly and feminine. This stuff inspires me and makes me want to be creative all the time. Whenever I’m at a shoot and I really need to impress, I bring out the Sugarpill!

I hope to see them branch to see them branch out and bring more to this line. Don’t you think they’d make a KILLER lipstick collection?? I sure do! But for now I will just continue to enjoy their eyeshadows, pigments, and lashes!


Here’s what I used in the video tutorial:

Sugarpill Heartbreaker Palette
Sugarpill Lashes (no name or #)
Maybelinne Lash Stiletto Mascara
Maybellina Ultra Liner
MAC Eye Kohl in Feline
Sugarpill Lumi Pigment

Here’s what I’m wearing on the rest of my mug:
Makeup Forever HD Foundation in 177
MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Deep Dark
La Femme Blush in Terracotta
MAC Cork lipliner
OCC Liptar in Tone
Clear Lipgloss

I hope you guys like the look :)
