Halloween makeup-dark fairy

This is my dark fairy look...Hope you like :o)

Remember, when doing dark eye looks you want to do your eye makeup first and do your face last.  This way if you have any fallout from the dark pigments/eyeshadow you can just wipe them away with a makeup removing wipe without ruining your foundation. 

What I used: All MAC products

First I primed each eye lid with paintrly paint pot 
Starting right below the crease I used blackground paint pot and blended it up
below the blackground I applied bright fuchsia pigment
I then blended the blackground and bright fuchsia together with carbon eyeshadow
Above the blackground, right below the brow I used the light pink out of the Too Dolly Hello Kitty quad and blended up, until it made an almost purple color

Tight lined my upper lid with feline then lined the upper lid with fluidline in black track.
lined the bottom lid with feline and smudged carbon on lower lid.

Finished with opulash mascara

How to choose and wear red lipstick

First, you will need to choose a red lipstick.  Skin tones on the pale side, should stick with a cool, bluey red lipstick, while olive skin tones traditionally look great with a more warm orangey-red lipstick.
When wearing a red lipstick, remember to keep the rest of your makeup more neutral, no heavy eye shadow, no heavy blush.  Think Dita Von Teese!
  • First, exfoliate your lips.  Buff all the dead skin away.  (I like to mix together a little olive oil with brown sugar and exfoliate my lips with this).  
  • After your finished exfoliating use a really good moisturizer on your lips.  I like MAC lip treatment and I love Carmex, both work really well.
  • Blot away any excess moisturizer, then choose a well matched lip liner.
  • Line your lips in whatever shape you would like to achieve, then use the liner to color in your lips (this will keep the lipstick from bleeding and will also enable the lipstick to stay on for quite a while.)
  • I prefer applying lipstick with a lip brush, it's more accurate and just ends up looking much better.  Apply the lipstick, then blot with a paper towel.  Apply another coat, blot and you're done!

New favorites and you can find them at the druge store!!

Monistat Soothing Care Chafing Relief Powder-Gel 1.5 oz (42 g)Olay Definity Pore Redefining Scrub, 5 fl oz (150 ml) Bottles (Pack of 2)
L'Oreal Advanced RevitaLift Anti-Wrinkle Concentrate, 1.0 FL. OZ. (30 ml)

I have been using these products for a month now and I have to say I love them. I have milia under my eyes and the Oil of Olay face wash has made them far less noticeable. I also have sun damage and have noticed a more even skin tone.

The anti-wrinkle concentrate I use under and around my eyes, it does make the skin more firm but takes about 3 weeks to see any improvements.

The Monistat Chaffing gel I have been using as a primer and it is AMAZING! Before, I used Benefit's Instant Smooth and I loved that, however I didn't like the almost $30 price tag. This chaffing gel works better than the Benefit product and only cost $6!!! It's a must have.

Been a long time!

So, in the time I've been away, I had a baby. I've been busy!!! Hopefully I will be updating this blog a couple of times a week, now that life is beginning to settle down a bit.

So, lets start!!

Today I was sifting through my drawer full of pigments, I wanted to use one I've never used. After about 5 minutes I decided on Circa Plum. Honestly, I bought this color just to have it and damn MAC on their catchy campaign launches! I've always thought this color was kinda, blah. Well, I really like it! It's gorgeous on. The look is simple. Circa Plum pigment and Vanilla shadow.
