EOTD 31 – Cosmic Browns

I realised that it has been quite some time since I have done a ‘Eye of the Day’ so today I have some fabulous browns for you along with a step by step tutorial 🙂

  • Step 1: (After primer – I use Urban Decay primer potion) Using an angle brush dipped in “Urban Decay’s – Snake Bite” I drew along the crease starting from the outside in and stopped about a quarter of the way from the inside crease.
  • Step 2: Using same brush blend as much as you can into the same area. Apply another coat and continue blending until desired darkness is achieved.
  • Step 3: Using an all over shadow brush and “Urban Decays – Bootycall” I then blended above the crease where my brown is, along the lash line under the brown, and on the inner corner and crease where the brown stopped.
  • Step 4: * If desired* Once you blend the tan and brown together you can go back and add a little bit of the “Snake Bite” in the outer corner to darken up that corner again.
  • Step 5: Apply a thin line of liner, I used “Avon Glimmersticks in Cosmic Brown”
  • Step 6: Topped off with mascara, I used “Urban Decay – Super Curl Curling Mascara”

EOTD 29 – Cobalt cat eye

Happy Monday! I know, oxymoron… :/

Before we get to the make up look, week three of the nail challenge is this week. I should be getting an email later today with this final weeks (before grand prize week) topic. Don’t forget to click here to go vote,(Hopefully for me. 😀 ) for week two. Voting for week two closes Wednesday, December 5th 🙂

Now, for today’s look, I tried something a little different and quite time-consuming… lol. A while back I got these “Eye Rock – eye tattoo” things in one of my Birchbox. Unfortunately most of the reviews of other Birchbox users stated that they didn’t stick, or last all day, which mine did not either.. I had gotten the idea back then and never got a chance to try it until now. Once you take the ‘sticker’ off of the paper you are left with a sort of stencil. I, (not easily) stuck that to each eye and traced inside of it with my liquid liner. Once the ‘stencil’ was removed I had to go back over it and define it more.

Here’s what I used:

“Urban Decay primer potion”

“Eye Rock – eye tattoo” as stencil

“Avon Extra Lasting Eye liner in Cobalt”

“Too Faced – After Glow in Lust” on lid

topped off with “Urban Decay – Super Curl Curling Mascara”

EOTD 28 – Thanksiving tattoos

No, I did not get a tattoo for Thanksgiving, I wish I got another one.. I used my Maybelline color tattoos for this look.. I hope all of my US friends (or anyone else that celebrated)’s Thanksgiving on Thursday? mine was nice, then exhausting, I went out at 7:30P on Thursday to Walmart, Kmart, and Target, we home and went to bed. Back and out of the house at 7 to Mall.. home around 12 I think it was. My feets were screaming, but I got decent deals. Especially on baby clothes, my sister is due in March and I didn’t even think about that on BF I was just so focused on Christmas presents, I walked by baby stuff and I think I screamed out loud I got such a good deal. Baby clothes need not be so expensive they grow out of them so quickly, so that’s why I was flippin out on my deals <. Anyway I hope everyone’s Thanksgiving was nice, and their BF was not too bad if they ventured out.

Onto my Thanksgiving day look.. I wore a not quite Royal but not quite Navy sweater so Iused “Urban Decay – primer potion” then “Bad to the bronze” on the outside corner and made a cat eye and brought into mid eye, to blend with “Tenacious Teal”. topped off with “Urban Decay Super Curl Curling Mascara”.

EOTD – 26 BCA makeup

My grandmother is a Breast Cancer Survivor, I have always tried to support and raise more Awareness whenever I can. My mother-in-law and I participated in the 2day, 39.3 mile, Avon Breast Cancer Walk in NYC last October, I have done the small 5k walks, I buy just about everything that says they donate a percentage of the profit to BC Awareness… of course this year is no different. I have worn my Breast Cancer Pin every day this month so far and will continue throughout the month.

My work is participating in a 5k walk at the end of the month and each Friday we are wearing Pink for Casual Fridays. Along with my pin, I wore a Pink button down shirt with my jeans, my pink Breast Cancer sneaks that I got for the walk last year, both of my pink rings, my pink rose earrings, a pink hair clip and of course the pink makeup that I am about to show you

*This is not an every day look for me, in fact if you look back at most of my EOTD posts they are all more subtle, this is the boldest I have done yet and I agree not very work appropriate for every day, however it is BCA Day at my work. My husband seems to think it’s too much…. :/ pff

ANYWAY, I used:

“Urban Decay Primer Potion”

Step 1: After primer is dry, used my “MAC eyeliner” to draw a cat eye and color in. Extend the top line of the cat eye about halfway to middle of eye in crease (similar to my last kohl eye liner look)

Step 2: Using “Coastal Scents – Vibrant Pink” which matches the eye liner, I took a small brush and covered the liner and blended

Step 3: Dab some “Coastal Scents – Pompano Pink” I put starting at the outer crease of my eye to mid and blended the two pinks.

Step 4: “Coastal Scents – Love Light” on inner corner to mid and blend those pinks so it’s a gradient pink look.

Step 5: Take same “MAC eye liner” and make a line on lower and upper lash line about 3/4 way in and blend with liner brush

Topped off with “Urban Decay Super Curl Curling Mascara”

So what do you think, do I look like “Mimi from the Drew Carey show”? 😦

EOTD 24 – gray/black

This will be a quick post today.  this look is my kind of smokey eye look. I am not big on darker colors like blacks, they scare me as far as blending. However I took the plunge and used from my e.l.f. shimmer palette, (so sorry no names) I used a light white/gray and a black shimmer. As always primer was “UD Primer potion” and mascara “UD Super Curl Curling Mascara”

What do you think?

EOTD 22 – Blues

I hardly ever use blues, I used a light blue, “Coastal Scents Polar Blue” and blended in a little “Coastal Scents Capri Blue” used my silver eye liner to make a cat or winged look. What do you think? I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it. I guess I just don’t feel like it enhances my eyes in any way like my trusty purples 😀

“Urban Decay Primer Potion”

“Coastal Scents in Capri Blue and Polar Blue”

“Avon Metallic eye liner in Shimmering Silver”

“Urban Decay Super Curl Curling Mascara”

EOTD 18 – Bronzed cut crease

Since my grays didn’t pan out exactly as I wanted, and I still need practice on this look, I decided to try brown/bronzes today.

For the full tutorial on this look check out this post.

This time I used “UD Primer Potion”, “Maybelline 24 hour Color Tattoo eye shadow in “Bad to the Bronze” for the Cut crease and “Urban Decay Bootycall” for the rest. the liner I used was also the Color Tattoo with a liner brush, then topped off with “Urban Decay Super Curl Curling Mascara”

EOTD 16- Purple (and new purchases) :)

I ordered a pair of Red suede wedges from Amazon on the 6th and they finally came!

 

 

The other new thing that I picked up was a “glitter Milani Eye Liner”. I went to look for the new Marker like liners that they have, but all they had, was black and I don’t usually use black. I ended up with their new Glitter Retractable Eye Liner in “Purple Quartz” that has a built-in sharpener and blender. Yep that’s right!

 

And now on to the look of the day, I used:

“e.l.f. Mineral infused face primer in clear”

“Clinique Redness Solutions Foundation”

“e.l.f. Studio Make Up mist and Set”

“UD Primer Potion”

“Inglot AMC Eye Shadow Shine 29”

“Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour in 20 Painted Purple”

“Milani Glitter Eye Liner in Purple Quartz”

“UD Super Curl Curling Mascara”

“e.l.f. lip color in Classy”

EOTD 14 – Sonia Kashuk purples

While browsing my local Target the other day I found this beautiful “purple haze palette by Sonia Kashuk”. It’s hard for me to explain this type of eye shadow; so please if anyone knows a better explanation or name for it please comment below. So, my description is, that it’s a loose shimmery shadow, compacted. Different from normal every day compact shadows, as this tends to “un-clump” a little when you apply, it’s flakey if you will. I was concerned, as with this type of shadow (and maybe its just that I am not using it right..) but it tends to either loose the pigment when applied, or loose the shimmer. This one did neither, which was good 🙂 The glitter/shimmer and the pigment stayed perfect, but I did have to use an eyeshadow sponge applicator rather than a brush, next time I will use my finger per a friend’s recommendation. I also want to see what it looks like over my “Pixie Epoxy” product from “Fyrinnae” as that gives colors a punch for loose pigments.

So far, I very much liked this palette and these colors, and again maybe I just need to mess with it a little as the texture is just not something I am used to working with, but I love it and think the colors are just beautiful.. and c’mon, who doesn’t love some glitter 😀

Here is a picture of the palette

What I used for this look:

“Urban Decay Primer Potion”

“Sonia Kashuk – white from the Purple Haze Palette” under the brow as a highlight and on inner corner

“Sonia Kashuk – pink” on the inner to middle lid and crease

“Sonia Kashuk – purple” on the inner to outer lid and crease

“Sonia Kashuk – eye definer in Purple Passion”

topped off with “Urban Decay Super Curl Curling Mascara

EOTD 11 & 12 Winged Eye Liners

Here’s another two-day EOTD’s

For Day 11 I used:

“Urban Decay Primer Potion”

“UD Book of Shadows IV – Midnight Cowgirl” on entire lid

“mark. on the edge, hook up, Liquid Eye Liner in Callisto” as a winged eye liner

topped off with “UD Super Curl Curling Mascara”

For Day 12 I used:

Eyes:

“UD Primer Potion”

“Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV – Midnight Cowgirl” on inner corner and as a highlight under brow

“Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV – Lost” on remainder of lid

and a touch of “Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV – Bender” on outer lid

“mark. on the edge, hook up, Liquid eye liner in Medusa” as a winged liner look

topped off with “UD Super Curl Curling Mascara”

Lip: “Mary Kay-  Nourishine Lip Gloss in Sweet Raisin”

*Before I sign off, I would just like to say that I absolutely LOVE That mark. Eye liner. I have always hated liquid eye liner and found it so hard to do cat eye, winged, or just regular liner for that matter. The Tutorial that I found, see post here: as well as this eye liner has made it so easy. This eye liner glides on so smoothly. I love the brush it’s not too short and not too long. The liner itself does not crack when it dries, and it dries fairly quickly so that you don’t get the line in your crease, and throughout the day I don’t get that crease bleeding line either. I LOVE this eye liner!!
