Dark Red Vampire Eye Makeup

First apply an eyeshadow primer all over your eye lid up to your brow bone. Also line the lower line of your eye with primer. This will create a base to help accentuate the colors that will be applied to your eyes. I used Julep mattifying eye primer. (Using E.L.F. eyeshadow palette.)

Using a slightly damp brush, place the red eyeshadow all over the eye lid and up to the crease to about the eyebrow bone area. I use a lip brush with a rounded end that is smaller than my pinky finger nail for precision. image Continue reading Dark Red Vampire Eye Makeup

2015 Top 3 Beauty Styles

1) Minimal Makeup is in.

Whether you are going on a date or you are going to work minimalism  is the new trend in makeup application and color emphasis.

This trend gives you a natural look and does not make your face look over done. For these reasons you can rock this trend in both the office and the night club. To wear this trend stick to more natural blush colors and utilize neutral tones for your lip and eye makeup. Using a lower coverage base makeup for your face or in some cases no base makeup will help you be on trend with this look.

Try using a lower coverage base such as Etude House BB cream. $18 USD at www.beauteque.com

As seen in the 2015 Valentine’s makeup episode of Get it Beauty both the better girl and better boy are given make overs with the  minimal makeup look. When compared to their before and after pictures the minimal makeup look enhances their natural beauty and makes them look “more attractive to the opposite sex”.

Aritaum Baby Face Mist Review

This entry is part 3 of 6 in the series Makeup Reviews

One of the many cosmetic stores I frequent is Amore also known as Amore Pacific. This store sells cosmetics and beauty items from brands such as IOPE, Laneige and Aritaum just to name a few.

I am a member of the rewards program and have earned $10 off my next purchase so be on the look out for a new beauty post.

I picked up the Baby Face Mist from Aritaum due to the fact that I have practically used up all of my sister’s facial mist.

Facial mist great for hydration on the go or for setting makeup.

Pony Shine Easy Glam 1 & 2 Review

This entry is part 2 of 6 in the series Makeup Reviews

Recently I ordered Pony Shine Easy Glam palette 1 and 2 from MemeBox. I threw in a color change lip tint balm from Liole to make my purchase over $30 USD. I have watched a lot of Pony’s Beauty Diary tutorials and fell in love with the looks she created for Play 101 from Etude House.

Right around the time I became obsessed with her tutorials MemeBox collaborated with Pony and released the Shine Easy Glam eye shadow palette. Originally I wanted to purchase the palette but I had decided against it, since I was doing a lot of christmas shopping at the time. When Shine Easy Glam second palette was released I had to get it. Upon returning from visiting family I used my Meme points ($18 USD) and a code for $5 off a purchase of $30 or more with that all in hand I ordered the bundle of Pony Palette 1 and 2 threw in a lip tint balm to go over $30 and ended up spending $18 USD of my own money to receive all these items.

Tony Moly Luminous Goddess Aura BB Cream Review

This entry is part 1 of 6 in the series Makeup Reviews

I received a sample of this BB cream when I made my last purchase at Tony Moly and honestly it just sat on my desk for a week. I finally came around to testing it and I liked how this shade blended well with my skin tone.

Sample is shade 02.
Sample is shade 02.

This cream feels light on my skin and adds a glowing shine to my skin. At first I thought it would be too dark for my skin but it ended up being just the right shade. This formula dries quickly and even though I had applied an extremely light concealer underneath this bb cream the shade still turned out to be very close to my skin tone.
