February 16th, 2011

You may have seen my post on facebook a few days ago of these lashes I loved from Make Up For Ever’s Tres Vichy collection.  Well, they finally came in my mailbox and I had to play with them!  I wanted to replicate the eye makeup for their Tres Vichy ad.  It’s a really simple [...]

Soft Smokey

February 12th, 2011

This is a sexy, smokey eye I taught during my first class at the Skin and Makeup Institute on Feb. 12th.  A true smokey eye is dark and one color starting at the lash line and fading as it moves up to the crease, but this is for those that are a little wary of the super dark [...]

Gold and Olive

Silver and Red

February 11th, 2011

This was just a funky, fun look I had been wanting to try out.  I used a bright silver eye shadow from my lash line to my crease.  Then I blended out that line and carried some of the silver up to my brow for a very soft highlight.  I used the tiniest bit of black [...]

Pretty in Pink

February 9th, 2011

For this look, I found a pigment that had been hiding in my makeup drawer and decided to try it out.  In the bottle, the color was a carnation pink with gold flecks in it, but once I rubbed it on my hand it turned a golden, coraly color.  I love chameleon colors!  I used [...]

You can wear blue eyeshadow! This is a super simple, pretty look using Hard Candy’s Kal-eye-descope baked eyeshadow duo.  For this look, I used the duo backstage pass (bright blue and cream).  Then I used Hard Candy’s Walk the Line eyeliner pencil in Chop Suey on my waterline and smudged a black shadow underneath halfway across my lower [...]

Green Smokey Eye

February 5th, 2011

Pretty, pretty, peacocky green eye.  For this look, I used two brushes, a medium shader brush and an angled liner brush and some water.  Using a dry shader brush, lightly pat MUFE’s 35 (off white) below the brow and blend into the skin down to your crease. Wipe brush off the shader brush on paper [...]

For this look I used Hard Candy’s Kal-eye-descope Baked Eyeshadow Duo in Ab Fab (bright pink and bright purple).  Super easy, I used the bright pink in my inner corner to the mid point of my eye and then used the bright purple from the mid point of my eye to the outer corner, blending [...]
