Classic Smokey Eyes!

Hi guys!

I have gotten several requests for a smokey eye tutorial and I decided to make a classic black smokey eye tutorial, because I think this is a great look for New Years Eve (or going out anytime of the year, really) and it is easy to jazz up with some glitter on the lid if you want to.  Here is the look:

I also created a YouTube video tutorial for this look, complete with types of brushes to use for each step.  I hope it is helpful for you all!  Here is is:

I hope you like this look and will try it out for yourself!  Have a happy & safe New Year!

Red & Green Wearable Christmas Camouflage Eyes!

I created this red and green Christmas look that is a bit muted, and my hubby said looked a bit like Camouflage, but pretty.  haha

 

 

 

I used red & green loose mineral pigments wet and then applied a light sparkly highlight color over top to blend them a bit more, set them, and tone down/mute the color a bit.  I created a YouTube tutorial for this look, which you can see here:

I hope that you really like this look.  I think it is very wearable and fun, and I had fun creating it!  I always value feedback, so please share your thoughts with me!  Also, if you have a request for a future look or any questions, please let me know!  I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

Glittery Christmas Eyes

‘Tis the season for glittery red & green!  Therefore, I created this (pretty awesome if I do say so myself) Christmas look!


I know many people are afraid to wear red eyeshadow.  I used to be, until I tried it!  It looks so amazing on almost any eye color and really makes your eyes pop!  I wear red shadow year round now, but Christmas creates the perfect opportunity for anybody to give it a try!  You can always wash it off if you don’t like it!

The glitters that I used in this look are super fine cut, and because of that, this look is not in your face bling-y!  haha  Also, it would look very similar without the glitter if you use a very shimmery red and green shadow and apply them wet.

I hope you enjoyed this look and give it a try yourself on Christmas or for a Christmas party (or just out Christmas shopping like I did today!  Got lots of compliments at Sephora!  haha)  Let me know what you think of this look and what type of tutorials you would like me to do next!  See you soon! =)

Purple Glitter Eyes

I have another glitter look for you all.  If glitter isn’t your thing, don’t worry, I will get back to “regular” makeup soon.  I am just on my honeymoon with my Lit Cosmetics!  Haha!

 

 

 

 

 

I really loved the way this turned out, and I think it could also be very pretty without the glitter by choosing a glittery shadow and applying it wet for some extra vividness.  I really feel like pictures and even video can not do this look justice.  Cameras just do not pick up on the glitter nor the awesomeness of the blue-violet duo chrome (BFTE Whisper) highlight.

I really like how the winged out crease turned out.  I think I might try it more often.  What do you think??

Here is the YouTube video tutorial for this look.  I think I am slowly getting better at making tutorials.  I just need to get a different mirror set up, I think.

Silver & Gold Holiday Makeup Version 2.0 – Glitter Edition!

My Lit Cosmetics order arrived, so as promised, I created the second (less wearable, but more fabulous) version of my Silver & Gold Holiday Makeup.  This version would be perfect for New Year’s Eve!

Please excuse my crazy hair. It has gotten to one of those awkward stages in growth that I have a hard time getting to do anything until it grows out more or I cut it again. haha.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I completely forgot to fill in my eyebrows for this look!  I was so mad at myself about it!  haha  Oh well.  Anyway, other than that, I think it turned out good.  Please let me know what you think of it in the comments!

Here is the video tutorial for the look:
