Face Routine

Hey everyone, today I'd thought I'd share my face routine =]. It wasn't really requested, it was more of an idea. Well here we go!

First off, I have to say, all these opinions are my own, all products were bought with my own money. Everything I use on this blog has been bought with my own money. If it was sent to me, I will say so =].

Also, I use very cheap products and it works for me =].

For some background info, I have fair, oily/combination skin. I do break out, but not as often as I used to.

In the morning and night, I use the L'Oreal Go 360 deep cream cleanser. It's the pink and white one. I heard that it was for dry skin....but that was AFTER I had already bought it and used half the bottle XD. But it helps my skin get clean and that's all I care about =]. It also doesn't leave me running for my moisturizer after 2 seconds like past cleansers have. I totally reccomend this to anyone really.

For a moisturizer, I use the L'Oreal Daily Active moisturizer with SPF 15. I ran out and I tried to re-buy it, but I couldn't find it, so I bought something else. This moisturizer is the best I've ever had. It's oil free and it goes on SO SMOOTH. I love it. I can't start my day without it. It does however, after a few hours, make my skin get a little bit oily, but I don't mind it.

For taking off eye make up, I use the Lancome eye make up remover...the one in the blue bottle that you have to shake to mix it up. Sorry, I don't remember what it's called.

For taking off other make up. I use the Neutrogena waterproof make up remover wipes, these wipes get off EVERYTHING. I'm on like my 5th pack of them now XD.

That's basically my face routine. I hope you liked it =]. Comment below and let me know yours =]. Bye!

I'm still here =]

Sorry about no tutorials or anything guys! I've been kind of busy and I haven't had any time to do a new look for you =/. I was saving up my money to get some mac eyeshadows and I finally got them =D. I'm not going to do a tutorial on it though, sorry x.x. The look I did has already been done by juicystar07 and there's no sense in copying it when you can go and watch the video =P.

I got All that glitters, Bronze, and Beauty Marked. I just did the "Glamorous Camera Ready" make up look that juicystar07 did. So go to her channel and search it if you wanna see what it looks like =].

Well thanks for reading! I should have a new tutorial put up soon. Bye!

*Wearable Mermaid (blue and purple) eye make up look

Hey everyone, sorry for not updating in a long time...but I'm back and with a new tutorial =]. I did have 3 other tutorials lined up, but I really really like this look, so I thought I'd share it =].

List of products:

  1. Kat Von D Memento Mori Palette

  2. Prestige waterproof eyeliner in Granite

  3. L'Oreal felt tip liquid liner

  4. Too Faced Eye Shadow Insurance

  5. Flatshader brush

  6. Pencil brush

  7. Blending brush

  8. Covergirl lashblast mascarra in Very Black

The first thing you want to do is prime your eyes with a base. This will help the shadow stick to something, keep it from creasing and increase the vibrancy of the colors.

Next, using one of your fingers, take the color "True" It looks like a dark purple and it's a cream color. Take a little bit and put it all over your lid.

Take your flat shader brush, using one side of it, take the color solitude and put it over the entire lid, over the cream shadow.

Turn your flat shader brush over and take the color peggy, it's a turquise color and put it about 1/3 to 1/2 of the outer part of your eyelid.

Blend the two colors together.

Take your pencil brush, and take the color hard lucky, it's a mossy dark green and define your outer v with it, and put it over the turoquise color.

Blend well.

Line your eyes and then put on mascarra!

Have fun!

Bronze Fire Eye Makeup tutorial

Hey everyone, sorry for the delay on tutorials! I've been really busy lately because I graduate tomorrow! I can't wait =]. Me and my friend were talking about make up and I told her about the Covergirl smokey shadow blast and so I decided to do a tutorial on it. Sorry that the pictures kind of camera wouldn't cooperate with me -.-. Anyways, here we go!

List of products:

  1. Covergirl smokey shadow blast in Bronze Fire

  2. Covergirl lash blast volume in very black

  3. Too faced eye shadow insurance

  4. L'Oreal felt tip liquid liner

First off, I have to say, I don't particulary like this product. It has greaty color payoff, in person XD, but it creases almost instantly. As you can see in the picture below, the result of this tutorial, you can see that it already creased and I took pictures right away. But it's great to wear to the beach, since it'll come off easy or if you have non-oily lids, unlike me XD.

First, prime your eyes, this will help the shadow stick to your eye and not do a disappearing act.

So take "step 1" the lightest shade, and put it all over the lid.

Next, take "step 2" and put a few strokes of it into the crease, just dark enough to where you can see a distinct line.

Next, either take a eye shadow brush or your finger and blend it in, and pulling it out more, to give it that smokey effect.

Line your eyes and apply mascarra. That's it! It's relatively easy but the shadow doesn't last long, even with a primer.

Here's my result:

Unashamed Eye Make up tutorial

Hey everyone, heres a new tutorial =]. This makeup is pretty basic, since we really only use 4 products. This is like a pinky neutral color. But in person, it doesn't look neutral, I don't know how to explain it XD. Enjoy!

List of products:

  1. Too Faced Eyeshadow primer

  2. Flat shader brush

  3. Blending brush

  4. L'Oreal HIP Pigment in Unashamed

  5. L'Oreal felt tip liquid liner

  6. Covergirl lash blast mascarra in very black

The first step is to prime your eyes. This will keep the eyeshadow from creasing and increase the vibrancy of the color.

Take your flat shader brush and get the color all over it, tap off the excess, and put it all over your lid and into the crease very lightly.

Take your blending brush and blend out the harsh lines.

Line your eyes and put on mascarra and you're done! =]

Here's my outcome:
