Feathered Eyeliner Tutorial
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


I’ve been yearning to try feathered liner! Not that it’s new or innovative, I just think it looks really edgy!

The the feathered liner turned into the urge to add a neon glitter, and theeeen I thought what the hell, why not go purple for the lips?!

 

Here’s what I used!
MAC Brow Crayon in Spiked
Shadow Shields
MAC Saddle Eyeshadow
LA Splash Cosmetics Sealer
LA Splash Cosmetics Glitter in Redondo Beach
E.L.F. Liquid Eyeliner
MAC 205 Brush
Yves Saint Laurent Shocking Mascara
Red Cherry #47 Lashes
Beauty Blender Sponge
Ben Nye Mojave Matte Foundation
MAC Fix +
MAC Studio Fix Fluid
MAC Select Coverup Concealer
Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder
MAC Mineralized SkinFinish in Deep Dark
MAC Shadowy Contour Powder
MAC Format Blush
MAC Vino Lip Pencil
MAC Violetta Lipstick

 

THEN at the very end I had a sudden urge to apply MAC MAC lipglass in Lychee Luxe on top. Don’t ask me why! But a purple ombre lip with orange is probably one of my favorite lip combos. So I couldn’t resist it. I actually love it with the gloss on top better!

 

hope you guys enjoyed the look!

Yves Saint Laurent Cosmetic Review
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


For quite some time now I’ve been wanting to try some of Yves Saint Laurent’s products a lot of people rave about. I’ve heard so many fabulous things about their Touche Eclat that I finally gave in one day and bought it, there’s a funny story behind that.

So I was on a plane ride to Bahrain when an idea popped in my head; why don’t I do some duty free shopping! I’d never purchased products on a plane before and I wanted to be cool for once lol. So I whipped out the catalogue, and said I want THAT! *points at the Touche Eclat*.

Unfortunately I find that duty free products, especially the designer cosmetics, come in 2-packs. Which meant I had to buy not ONE Touche Eclat, but TWO! The total for both was about $70 USD. I was pretty convinced I’d be satisfied with the product so it didn’t really bother me. Maaaan, I took those bad boys home and when I got home and opened them, they were shade #1….the LIGHTEST shade. LMAO. I couldn’t use them!!! Not even as a highlight!

Luckily buying makeup in the wrong shade is a gift that keeps on giving. For myself I can always just put it in my makeup kit and use it on clients, which is what I’ve been doing. It was definitely a lesson learned!

I didn’t purchase the product again until visiting Paris on vacation. I stopped at a Sephora store off the Champs Elysees and just HAD to have it. I also picked up their Faux Cils Mascara, now THAT stuff I’ve seen in action and it’s amazing. I absolutely knew I’d fall in love with the mascara, and that I did!

As for the Touche Eclat, it’s advertised as a radiant touch highlighter for the face, and being that I purchased the shade that’s my exact skin tone it just doesn’t do that for me. Perhaps I should try a shade that’s a bit lighter. Overall, I think it’s a nice product to use when you want that “makeup without looking like I’m wearing it” look. I also like the fact for the most part it lasts all day and doesn’t really crease. While I do applaud them for releasing more shades that are women of color friendly, I do believe they have more work to do in that aspect. I truly wish more mainstream makeup companies would realize that we’re dark, we’re beautiful and we’re here to stay. EMBRACE us! Rather than ignoring us because it may not be marketable. And I don’t mean YSL, I just mean in general.

The mascara, again, is an absolutely fabulous must-have of the year. Their stuff is pricey, absolutely. But you definitely get what you pay for and much more with their mascara’s. It does absolutely everything I need it to do in a mascara: Volumizes, thickens and lengthens. I love that there’s tons of product in the tube, BUT use with caution! That can easily be a recipe for clumps. I on the other hand don’t mind a little clump on my lashes, mainly the roots. It makes them look even more thick and full. I can go on and on with mascara’s but just know that I LOVE this stuff!! I really wanted to try their Shocking brand but that one has been harder to find for some reason. I will definitely get my hands on it eventually!

I hope you guys enjoyed the review and had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend! Remember those who serve
