Video :: Elf Beauty Book :: "Smoky" Eye Edition Tutorial



So here is the second part of the E.L.F. Beauty Book Series. This is the Smoky Eye Edition. I thought why not make an easy and sexy smokey eye that you can wear for an evening out on the town, or be bold and wear it at school or work. 

I hope you like the video, please do let me know what you think about my tutorials! if they don't help, they do, do you like the close up video of the eye, or far away? i haven't had any feedback, so i'm up for it :) 

Well here are the products used for this video:

FACE:
Sonia Kashuk Tinted Moisturizer in Linen
MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW25 (under eye area)
Laura Mercier Loose Setting powder in Translucent

CHEEKS:
ELF Studio Blush in Tickled Pink

EYES:
E.L.F. Beauty Book - Smoky Eye Edition 
E.L.F. Eye Brightening Eyeliner in Black (came in palette)

LIPS:
MAC Plum Lipliner
MAC Boybait Cremesheen Glass

And the Video :) (please don't forget to give it a "thumbs" UP!)




Colors Used:

Final Look:




You can do a more nude lip with this look, or if you want or be more bold and daring and do a brighter plum or deep red lip! Also - You can definitely wear falsies (false lashes) if you want to, but i just usually don't have time to whenever I go out, or get ready in the morning and it'd probably take me an hour just to try LOL but either way it was real simple and truly do hope you like this look and find the tutorial helpful!

don't forget to check out my mini-giveaway! :)
My 100 Follower Mini-Giveaway!










Stay tuned for the last part of the series using the E.L.F. Beauty Book :: Eye Brights Edition! :)

Video :: July Faves

So I've been totally addicted to doing YT videos  (can you tell?) lol.. I just think it's an outlet for me to show people who i am and my personality.. that and this is the only way i get to share my passion for the things i love (besides my family <3 <3)

A lot of my friends don't really have the same interest in make-up and fitness/exercising as I do.. so hence the blog, the YT channel and the like.. I at least get to interact and communicate to those that share my passion, or want to get into make-up/beauty/health etc..

enough of my rambling.. Here are my Favorite beauty Products for July!




Products Mentioned:

1. MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Medium

I have not stopped reaching for it this whole month of July. Prior to finding this, I was using the MAC Sheer Pressed Powder but noticed i kept coming back to MSFN. I believe it's because when i used it to set my foundation, it just made my skin look so natural and i liked it! it wasn't heavy or made me cakey, and it was easy to apply. I've used it everyday and it has not budged lol! love this stuff and would reccomend it for those that are looking into something from MAC to set the foundation and if the Sheer pressed powder is not enough coverage.

2. MAC By Candlelight MSF

I didn't really get into Mineralized Skinfinishes just until a month before Stereo Rose came out.. and they repromoted By Candlelight as well, after doing tons of research/looking at swatches and then looking for myself in store, i've fell in love with this product. i use it to highlight my skin, and place it where light/sun would reflect off of.. giving me such a natural radiance to the skin.. it was perfect for summer and still is!

3. MAC Stereo Rose MSF

like mentioned above I got it with By Candlelight MSF and i absolutely love these two together as well.. i didn't think i'd get into the hype, but this product does give me this lovely glow to the cheeks.. it was a perfect color for summer! i loved it and had used it quite often!

4. MAC Fluerry Powder Blush (D/C)
after seeing many swatches of this particular blush, I knew I had to have it.. and ever since I purchased it from someone online (in perfect condition, might i add) and the first use.. I WAS IN LOVE! there was a point where I wore this particular blush and only this blush for 2.5 weeks! it gave my skin an amazing glow but was definitely not over the top. It's a Frost, and i'd thought Frost = fall out or sparkly glitter chunks lol.. but it was far from it.. it made my cheeks glisten in radiance in all the right places.. and the color went with mostly everything!

5. Diorskin Nude Foundation in Linen (021) 
I purchased this on a whim.. my first purchase of dior anything! i was quite impressed at how much the foundation felt like skin on me.. like my skin but better. the smell wasn't as bad, it was pleasant. i can't put my tongue on the word.. but i actually grew to like it! the coverage was great, except on my t-zone which is my problem area.  so i don't use it that much only on special occassions because it is pricey.. and don't wanna waste it.. 


6. Korres Blush in #15 Natural
OMG this blush is love! if i'm in a hurry and just wanted a touch/hint of color or add a stunning glow to my cheeks - this would be it! and it lasts all day on my greaseball/oily skin! i love this blush, it feels so satiny on my cheeks, and it's not blotchy at all. extremely pigmented and just overall a great color for my skintone!


So these are my favorites! hope you all enjoyed the video! and if you haven't subscribed to my channel/blog - please do it's FREE! and don't forget the "thumbs up!"

thanks all!

The Versatile Blogger Award!



Hello Everyone! Who doesn't love blog awards?! I feel so special haha!

anyway, i wanted to share with you all that Justine was so kind enough to award me the Versatile Blogger Award! woo hoo! :) thank you doll! You guys should check her out if you haven't already - she has some pretty amazing product reviews that you wouldn't want to miss!

As a Recepient of the award, I'm to post 7 random facts about me and share the award with other bloggers of my choice.

Here are some random facts (that i haven't mentioned previously)

* I'm 5'0 short! lol.. of course from videos and pictures you can't really tell how tall (or in this case how short I am).. but it's pretty funny when people see me in person - i'm a shorty <3

* I get bored easily with things! i will always start a project and almost never finish it! or i'll get into this phase (was on a blushwhore phase, but easily got bored with it.. then was on a purchase all lipsticks phase, and bored with lipsticks lol).. and i'm really suprised i've kept up with my  blog as long as i did lol

* I had lasik eye surgery in 2006 - and had perfect vision! and just recently (like 2 weeks ago) had to get eye glasses because i can't see far anymore :( (well dr said it was due to 2nd pregnancy which was true - your eyes/teeth etc make drastic changes during pregnancy and unfortunately my eyes suffered lol - but don't regret my babies at all!)

* I want to be a rockstar - yes even though i'm grown up, i still have dreams or thoughts that i still will/want to be a rockstar lol.. 

* Some people don't know, but i created and founded the website WorldForMoms.com :) made it when i was pregnant with my first daughter and had NO one to turn to! (it was originally a make-up/beauty forum called "Makeupyourmind.com" I think lol) 

* I love going to the gym to lift weights! i get very touchy on the subject about girls that think they'll get "buff" if they lift weights! it bothers MEEEEEE lol.. but, i never say anything - because i'm so passionate about the subject that i'd just get angry lol so i just end up going to the gym by myself. (plus i lost 20lbs and have kept it off lifting weights and eating healthy! woot!)

* I absolutely LOVE Ghost/scary stories/movies! i love going to haunted houses on halloween and love getting scared haha!

lol yes - i'm still boring haha! but anyway! I'd like to share this award with the following bloggers that I enjoy!
