Cupcake Theme!!

Since I have changed my haircolor, I wanted to do a more cupcake themed look. Because I love them :)
This one was fun to do. I used: Painterly P/P as my base, Haunting e/s on the lid. I cut the crease with MUF #75 (hot pink) and blended with Tarina Tarantino's Cameo Pink. White Frost e/s under brow and MAC's Pro Pigment in Rockit Yellow in the inner corner. The lashes did not come out so good in pictures, but they are Red Cherry and they're purple and black. And to top it off, Candy yum yum l/s!!

Slightly sloppy liner, but pretty :)

Kat Von D Ludwig Palette

So here is two more looks using Kat Von D's palettes. This time I am using her Ludwig palette. Which includes, Lucifer (matte black), Orbi (deep olive green), Dimebag (metallic green), Tequila (metallic yellow beige), Clay (beige with gold glitter), Downtown (metallic light copper), Baroque (golden bronze shimmer), and Leather (matte warm brown). Two colors are also in her Beethoven palette. Of this set, I used the browner shades the most in the past. They are beautiful shades for the perfect shimmery smokey eye. Her shadows are very pigmented and I have always enjoyed using them.

Look One:

Tequila on lid and brow
Orbi in crease
Lucifer to deepen crease
Dimebag to soften crease and under lashline
Feline eye kohl

Look Two: 

Clay on lid and brow
Downtown on crease
Baroque in crease
Leather to deepen crease and under lashline
Feline eye kohl!

Kat Von D Beethoven Look

Since her new palette is on my Christmas list I thought I'd do some quick looks using her older palettes. This one if the Beethoven palette. Which includes 8 shades, Lucifer (matte black), Speed Blue (deep frosty navy), Raxor Grey (greyed seafoam green), Tequila (lt goldish beige), Sinner (deep purple with brown undertones), Rad Purple (dark purple with Galeano (beige-y lt purple). I did 2 QUICK (let me emphasize quick haha) looks with this palette, one using the first 4 colors and the other with the last 4.

Look One:
Tequila on lid
Speed Blue in crease
Lucifer to deepend crease
Speed Grey on inner crease and over Speed Blue
Tequila to highlight
Lucifer under lash line
Feline Kohl on waterline and liquid liner on top. 

Look Two:
Galeano on lid and brow
Rad Purple in crease
Leather over that
Sinner in outer corner of lid
Feline eye kohl and liquid liner!

Cut Crease using MAC's Snowglobe palette in Sultry

So here is a quick look I did before work the other day using the new Sultry palette from the holiday collection! I love this palette for the smokey berry colors. I think they are sexy and look grey with greys too! I will do another style of look with this palette later, but I wanted to work with a more cut crease type look.

The colors I used are Lightfully on the lid, Shadowy Lady for the cut, and Festive Delight to blend out! I also took Gaelic Gold from the Tarten Tale collection under the lashline! I really liked this look a lot. Hope you did too!
And naturally I have Viva Gaga 1 on my lips! My staple color!!

Halloween look!!

So here is what I did for Halloween!! I went as a 1950's malt shop waitress zombie haha kinda complicated but was fun (minus the car accident I got into on the way downtown!! )

So I know it's after Halloween, but who doesn't want to be a zombie any day of the week!? For this look I went legit and bought some Ben Nye Cake makeup in Frankenstein. You can use the cheaper face paint if need be. I caked that all over my face and neck. I then used a dark grey eyeshadow (Typographic from MAC) as my contour and eye color. I built that up and blended it out until it looked blended. I took a little bit of a deep red shadow from the coastal scents 120 palette for some fun addition, black liner and lashes!! For my lips i used MACs Eden Rouge Mattene lipstick and took from Duo Adhesive to the corner of my lip and let that cake up and covered it in Ben Nyes stage blood. I hope you like it it was fun to do!!

True Blood/Vampy look

Here is my second look using the True Blood palette. I went for a more "vampy vixen" type look, but not the same look provided in the palette.

This time I used the Tarte eye primer to give that a whirl. I like, but I am just not a fan of the doe foot applicator it and UD's primer has. I would rather be able to have a jar. Just personal preference, the primer itself works very well. I took Stake and applied it all over the lid and into the crease. I then took Immortal to deepend the crease and the outer V. I took Werewolf to the crease and used the Light under the brow. I put a little True Death in the tearduct and used "V" under the lower lash line and extended it out to the V. (haha!) Smolder eye kohl on upper lash line and waterline and a coat of False Lashes Mascara! I paired it with Prolingwear Lipglass in Lasting Achievement.
