I love freckles!

I was able to be apart of an amazing art show at The Boys and Girls Club in my area. The show was full of great artists that ranged from painters to tattoo artists.

Outside of makeup, I’m a graphic designer and a lover of all artsy things. I displayed some of my paintings and paintings, as well as painting a few faces. I’ve never put makeup on anyone with freckles and I’m in love with the way this came out. She has a light coverage on her face with some bold brows and golden eyes.

Hopefully I can do more things like that in the future!

Let’s throw it back to a good eyebrow day. 

This is what my hair looks like now. I’m growing the top out for a bit of length and keeping the back and sides tapered down. I don’t line the front of my hair because I’m too attached to my baby hair.

Thinking about going back to my strawberry colored hair for the fall but black will do for now.

Random tip

Some of us struggle with smile lines and other creases that look horrible under foundation. Even if you have oily skin, like myself, those lines appear throughout the day.

If you have a crease proof eyeshadow primer, you can put that on underneath places that crease. There are some brands that make crease proof foundation and concealers but I’m cheap. So to stop my oily lids from creasing when I put concealer over them I apply Wet N Wild Fergie shadow primer. It’s cheap and gets the job done. It is also a bit on the dry side so it absorbs any oils that are already on your lid. You don’t have to use this primer, anyone that works for you is good.

I hope this tip helped!

Anonymous asked: Whats your holy grail eyeliner?


Answer:

It’s definitely between Jesse’s Girl Liquid liner and Maybelline Line Stiletto. Jesse’s Girl is so black and I absolutely love the brush! It come in a silver pen, incase you want to check it out. Maybelline was my first liquid liner and it made the process so easy. Those two are hands down my favorite, until I find something else.

A little product can go a long way when it comes to brows. I like to use gel liners because they stay in place all day and keep the hairs from moving.

If you want to see how I fill in brows I’ll leave a link to the tutorial below. (This is my mom by the way.)

Mascara Monday: Wand Style

Just like any other makeup product, what you use and how you use it will determine the look you get, mascara isn’t any different. There are many different styles of mascara wands that promise you many different things and can make or break your experience with that mascara.

Urban Decay chose a slightly tapered traditional brush for their Perversion mascara. The larger bristles give you more volume and allow you to slightly focus on the lashes in the inner corner better. Depending on the formula of the mascara and the design of the tube, this wand can accumulate too much product around the tip, as you can see in the picture.

Maybelline Great Lash is even more tapered and the bristles are made of plastic rather than fibers. The width of the bristles gives your lashes volume and separation. The bristles are closer together so that they can comb and coat each lash with product. The smaller bristles are perfect for the inner corner and bottom lashes. The spaces between each bristles lets those shorter lashes come together for a wispy effect.

Maybelline Mega Plush has a cylindrical shape. It is slightly tapered in at the top and bottom of the wand. This gives your lashes a more even all around look; it’s also a more friendly and forgiving wand to use. You can use this wand from any angle and get the same effect.

The L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly also has a cylindrical shape but very short, separated bristles. The shortness makes it easy to use on any part of your lashes but also difficult to add length. The tiny bristles allow you to get extremely close to your lash line without irritating it or brushing mascara in your tight line.

This is a few kinds of wands that grace the market right now. I just wanted to share a couple things with you about mascara wands so you know a little more when you’re purchasing some. I hope this was helpful and stay tuned for next weeks Mascara Monday!

erikablair8 asked: Hi! I'm trying to dye my hair black violet. What hair dye should I use ?


Answer:

Hi! L’Oreal and Vidal Sassoon have black violet hair dyes but from some reviews they are hit or miss. You might want to try a really dark purple or a plum purple. Pravana Chromasilk Vivids in Violet can get pretty dark depending on how much you lift your hair. You’ll have to order that or you can try African Violet by Adore. Manic Panic more than likely has a color similar but it fades too fast for my liking. I hope that was helpful for you!

Mascara Monday

I’ve decided to dedicate Monday to mascara simply because it is one thing that every makeup wearer puts on, from novice to pro. This Mascara Monday is going to be pretty basic with some tips and tricks.

To start things off you want to pick a mascara that is going to give you what you’re lacking; that may be volume, length, separation, or hold after you curl your lashes. It may take purchasing a couple tubes to find out what gives you the perfect lash. Don’t be afraid to pair up different ones with. If you’ve found a mascara that gives you great volume and separation, pair it with a lengthening one to make them pop even more.

After you pick your mascara, next comes color. Mascara is offered in brown, black, and blackest black. If your a natural blonde or red head it’s best to go with a brown mascara. Black maybe too harsh for your eyes and will make you feel like you don’t have any lashes once you take it off. I love to use blackest black for two reasons; one, black just doesn’t seem black enough and my lashes are already black. (Helpful hint: false lashes also come in brown but are harder to find.)

The most important thing to remember when your flipping through magazines, like Teen Vogue and MarieClaire, is that 99% of the time those models have in false lashes. I used to look those ads and race to the store to only find out that my lashes look nothing like the models.

I hope you enjoyed this short introduction to Mascara Monday! Next week we’ll take about mascara wands and how the create different looks!
