November Favorites!!

27 Nov

Hello Lovers!!

As the month comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to highlight some of my favorite go-to products this month. I have been into a very neutral eye paired with a dark lip vibe lately. These products help me to achieve that beautifully, as well as lasting all day!

Here is a break down of the list going clockwise:

Ulta Voluptuous Volume Mascara – THIS. That is what I have to say about this mascara. It is amazing and does everything I need it to do. I get great volume and a wonderful darkness and depth to my lashes with this product.This can be purchased at your local Ulta.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Liptar in ‘Black Dahlia’ – THIS.IS.EVERYTHING. I am absolutely in love with this liptar. It is everything that fall and winter should be; dark, sultry, smooth and warm in the coolest way. It comes on as the darkest blood cherry red and also has a slight stain quality that makes it so you never look like you’re without color in your lips. It’s gorgeous in short. It can be purchased at occmakeup.com, at their stand alone store in NYC or at select Sephora locations.

Sugarpill Cosmetics Pressed Eyeshadow in ‘Bulletproof’ – This matte black shadow is a must have! I feel that this is an essential eye shadow to have in your collection. I literally us this shadow in 90% of my makeup looks. This month I have used Bulletproof to set my liner and smudge it out for more depth. Purchase this at http://www.sugarpillshop.com/

Urban Decay 24HR Liquid Eyeliner in ‘Perversion’ – This is a great liquid eyeliner that is easy to apply and lasts all day. It is one of the darkest eyeliners I have used and I have never had a problem with applying it. Purchase at urbandecay.com, Ulta or Sephora.

Sauce Box Cosmetics Eyeshadow in ‘Spy’ – This eyeshadow has been the perfect highlight for me. It is easy to use, not to chalky or powdery but also not too strong for a subtle highlight. I use it under my brow to really emphasize the shape and bring some brightness to my eyes. This can be purchased at sauceboxcosmetics.com

Inglot Cosmetics Freedom System Rainbow Shadows – The freedom system from Inglot is one of my favorite things in the makeup world. You pick and choose what colors you want and make a wonderful palette with them, As a step up….they have the Rainbow shadows, which contain 3 colors in one pan. This is the perfect set up for lid, crease and a highlight all in one!! They have lots of options, I only posted some of the options that are perfect for somebody doing a neutral look. These can be purchased at inglotusa.com or Inglot stores.

What are your favorite products for November?

Out of this World (Halloween Post)

28 Oct

Hello Hue Lovers!!

I hope you all enjoyed your pre-Halloween weekend!! I went to a Halloween party hosted by my company and I ran into the worst scenario!! At 6pm I made the decision that I did not want to be Medusa, my planned Halloween costume!! At this time I racked my brain and wardrobe for some idea of what to be and this is what I came up with.

An ALIEN!! This was the perfect costume for me…quick and easy to put together. I went for a warrior princess vibe with my hair and outfit. I love the color play that you can do with a costume like this and I definitely recommend it for those who haven’t picked a costume yet!! You can go big and paint your entire body or just your face. As far as makeup….the options are endless, this is the perfect costume for somebody who wants to let some of their creativity out!! I definitely would do this again for a themed party or event.


Have you planned your costume yet?

Thank you for reading….and remember…

MyTee Monday

15 Oct

 

Hello Hue Lovers!!

Today’s post is dedicated to the brand Mytee B.A.D. (myteebad.com). I have posted about this brand in the past, with a look inspired by their Tripe L bracelet Tuesday Tip: Be Inspired!!. In thatt post I focused on the “Live” bracelet in the Triple L set and today I am doing a look inspired by the “Love” Bracelet in the set. This bracelet is adorable and the perfect way to represent ‘love’.Β  It is a hand beaded bracelet with gorgeous colors like pink, fuchsia and purple. It has skulls, which we all know are huge right now and it has a silver medallion that reads “love”. I wear this bracelet often for a nice pop of color in my daily arm candy.

I decided to create 3 looks for this bracelet because I felt that “love” would deserve more than just one! I went with an editorial look first by having a simple eye and some heart focused lip art. This was definitely something fun just for pictures, but unfortunately not something I could wear out and maintain. The next two looks are very similar, the main difference being that one is more purple and fuchsia based while the other has a bit more pink in it. These looks are definitely wearable for a fall first date or a night out with your sweetheart. All three looks feature my top 3 favorite Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic liptars; Belladonna (Ultra Violet) Black Dahlia (Blackest Blackened Red or Blood Red) and Anime (Bright Neon Fuchsia/Pink). In the first look liptars are used to feature a Black Dahlia heart, while in the second look I mixed the colors to create the perfect fall plum darkened at the corners with Sugarpill’s Bulletproof pressed eyeshadow.

The Love bracelet gave me the opportunity to express my love for a few things in one shot! I used liptars that I will not hesitate to say I am in love with. They are amazing to work with and the colors are to die for.Β  My all time favorite color is purple and you can see that I put it everywhere I could in this look. Along with my OCC liptars, I used shadows from Sugarpill Cosmetics and Inglot Cosmetics. These three companies are my favorite makeup companies and it was great to use them in a look representing love.

What are some products or companies that you love? What is your go-to product for a date?

I hope you all enjoy this look and thanks for reading πŸ™‚ Remember….

Tuesday Tip: Less is More (Halloween Post!!)

2 Oct

Hello Lovers!!
October is hereee and that means that it is officially Halloween season. I have never been the type to say “I absolutely have to do something this year.”…. but now I see Halloween as the perfect opportunity to practice more artistic makeup. I will be doing a few Halloween posts a week showing looks, products and tricks.

Today I wanted to do a post about one of my favorite things to see….the half face. I love the effect that you get when you only do two different looks on one face, thus the title ‘Less is More’. You don’t have to do a full faced sugar skull or android to get an great effect!! You can do two different looks on your face and if they are well done, they will look just as amazing as a full face!! My favorite combo is to do a face that is extremely dramatic next to really pretty natural makeup. I feel that the contrast really makes a statement.

This technique also can cut your makeup time in half, so I definitely recommend trying it out this year for some of the Halloween festivities that you attend. Just a note: when planning to do a half face, I have found that a good matte black eyeshadow is KEY! This will help with shading and transitioning one look to the other.

What is your favorite Halloween look?

Thanks for reading. And remember….

Throwback Thursday: Sugarpill Cold Heart Palette

13 Sep

Hey Lovers!!
Today I want to do a throwback Thursday post about my first Sugarpill purchase and one of my favorite palettes; Sugarpill’s Cold Heart Palette. This palette is no longer in stock but the individual shadows can be purchased on Sugarpill’s website sugarpillshop.com. I purchased this palette as a birthday present to myself in January 2011, about a year after the company launched. As a purple and blue fanatic, this palette definitely called my name.

This was a perfect way for me to enter the world of makeup! This palette contains an amazing matte black called ‘Bulletproof’ that is perfect for smoking out the eye or setting your eyeliner. The white shadow ‘Tako’ is the perfect highlight for the brow bone or the inner corner. The bright blue shadow in ‘Afterparty’ is amazing!! I love this shadow, it is super pigmented and versatile…. great for the lid, colored brows or as a liner! Last, but far from least, is ‘Poison Plum’. This is the shadow that I purchased the palette for, an amazing and pigmented purple that is even more versatile than ‘Afterparty’!! Use it for the lid, colored brows, eyeliner or even as a blush!! I feel that with this palette I got the best of all worlds….highlights, smokey, brights and brows!!
Though this specificΒ  palette is no longer stocked, I highly encourage you all to order a shadow from Sugarpill Cosmetics. This company is one of my all time favorites and this is why I wanted to dedicate a Throwback Thursday post to my first purchase from them. They are cruelty-free and also have vegan products (the website indicates which products are vegan). They are definitely great quality and at a price point that makes it hard not to purchase! Sidenote: With every purchase I’ve made with them I’ve received a sample of a shadow and a cute sticker!!
Here is a picture of the palette from a post by obsessedwithvanity.blogspot.com

Here is a recent picture of my palette, almost 2 years after my purchase it still has so much product!! I use this palette on a daily basis and it is one of the best purchases I have made. I have also included swatches of these amazing shadows.


What is your favorite product that you’ve purchased? When did you purchase it?

Thanks for reading Lovers! And remember…..
