TUTORIAL - Barbie Makeup Inspired Look

Hello Everyone,
Today's inspired makeup look is all about Barbie, This was a requested look.
For the Barbie look I really wanted her signature color which is Pink & I added some silver to enhance the eyes. This look is something you can make darker if you like but I wanted to keep it as doll like & not to sexy, but girly & pretty.

TUTORIAL: Edgy Biker Chick Grunge Makeup Look

Hello Everyone,
So a new tutorial today, this one I was excited to film & share, it's a Biker Chick look with an Rockstar twist to it & I think it turned out really great. I took inspiration from the metal themes (motorbike ETC) & other grudge elements to create this look. I kept the Lips and Blush color to a minimal & did more contouring to give a real sculpted look to enhance & complement the eye makeup.

MFOTD - Born this way!

Hello Everyone, 
Okay so it's not lady Gaga's with born this way today, BUT this is requested a lot & I thought today was great day to finally get around to it for you all :).
The Born this way makeup look OR "No I swear this is my natural face no makeup here" Look, is great for lazy days, work/school or if you just like to look polished & casually "perfect". I love to wear this on Sundays, because most times I'm sitting behind a computer working on stuff for all of you's, other work or playing my beloved Sims 3 /Sims 2.



The main key here with making this look like your wear nothing is a light hand in other words don't apply to much and blend, blend & more blending you don't want harsh lines of foundation over the face .....EVER, and you want everything looking seamless.  For the eyeshadow you'll only need one shade, something that blends out to your natural skin tone color, for me that's Wet N' Wild's e/s in Burlee o…

Hello Everyone,
Today's Video is all about a foundation!

I have combination skin ( Dry on the cheeks & Oily T-Zone)

BLOG Review - Black Kohl Eye Pencils

Hello Everyone, 
One of my first purchase's I ever made in buying makeup at the drugstore was eyeliner to be more correct it was Kohl Pencil eye liner. 
I loved the encasing effect of eyeliner, using it on the waterline & lash line 
(& eyelid) to create the dark black rimed eye's was something I was into wearing back in the day, I was 16 at the time & "EMO" eye's were the fashion for me. But these days I use black eyeliner to enhance the eye's not to encase them in the blackness, I once love to do.
There are many Black Kohl Pencils to pick from these days & many of you will own at least one of them. I have 6 that I'm going to talk about today ones I use the most & have come to love or hate for diffident reasons. 




Now the mistake I made when I was 16 & beginning to use makeup was I thought one black Kohl pencil was just like all the other black kohlpencils. That is so NOT the case & after many years of using makeup & beauty schoo…

MFOTD - I Wanna be a Rockstar!

Hello Everyone, 
So after I did my makeup today, I thought it was a great makeup look to share with you all, I have done this look on multiple times before & have always loved it, so then it not to nice to keep it for my self! :-). 
It's a kind of a Rock chic makeup look, you can smoke it out more for the more bolder effect. I Personally love to make it more smokey for Nighttime, but during the day this is a really beautiful look that everyone can wear. 


Using the Gray's & Black's around the eye's has always been classic Rockstar look, But this works like a dream if you have Blue, Blue-gray or Gray Eyes. It pulls out the richness of your eye color outwards & makes then really stand out or "pop". Combine that with a Plum, Red or Hot pink lipstick & you have a combination that will never fail. Now I'm not forgetting about my other eye colored friends out there instead of the gray's use Purples or Coppers to make Brown, Green & Hazel eye…

TUTORIAL: Blushing Bride Wedding Makeup + Tips

Hello Everyone,
Today's Makeup Tutorial is a special one to me it's a wedding makeup look. 
I thought being February meaning Valentines day, I knew a wedding (bride) makeup look was just the thing, because a lot do deiced to get married in February so here's a bit of makeup help :)
The look is very flattering as it highlights all the beautiful features but it puts the main focus on the eyes. While the rest of the makeup is kept soft and gentle. Also on my nails I'm wearing Essie's Tie the Knot Nail Polish with Essie Kisses & Bisses on top, to give it an opal finish (very wedding like)
