FOTD: MAC 15 Warm Neutral Pallet

macpallet

Hi Loves! The second pallet we will get into is one of my favorites! The MAC 15 Warm Neutral is one of the best everyday pallets I have. I love this pallet because it has great crease colors and you can get a day/night look with subtle pops of color. Bae has been liking olive green this Fall, so I wasn’t surprised when I asked him what color I should use and he picked Unwind. Make sure to look at the product list below. Remember eye shadow looks don’t have to take a ton of colors, I got this look using only four shadows!

Day to Night

Processed with MOLDIV

Hi Loves!!! Today’s post is about  going from a day look to a night look in three easy steps. Before I get into this let’s state the obvious: I’m obsessed with SnapChat filters!!! Now moving on, these pictures were taken on the same day. The picture on the left was my day time look. Smashbox BB water, concealer to highlight, powder to set my face, bronzer to “contour”, brows, mascara, a highlighting powder, and gloss. To get my night time look I only did three things:

1. Applied Kiss lashes in Beyond Natural 03

2. Applied NYC liquid eyeliner (only lined top of eyes)

3. Applied NYX Lingerie liquid lipstick in Honeymoon

That’s it ladies! I didn’t do anything else to my face but blot excess oil and set my face again with powder! Super quick and easy! If you have any questions leave them below. Thanks for reading! Xoxo

All About Eyeliner!!

DSCN0846

Hi Loves! Today we are going to talk about eyeliner!! This was a very hard topic to cover without doing a video so I hope the pictorials do this topic justice. I will cover gel, liquid, and pencil liner, my favorite eyeliners and also the technique I use to apply. PSA: excuse my brows in these pictures lol I did not fill them in so they are looking a little ratchet. My apologies in advance.

The liner I reach for the most is the Maybelline New York Eyestudio gel liner in Blackest Black. I LOVE this liner because its super black and the finish is matte! For this to be a drug store product, the quality is amazing! Another gel liner that I hear a lot of good things about is Inglot’s gel liner in #77. This is slightly more than the Maybelline but I hear it’s great. To apply the gel liner I switch between this BH Cosmetics eyeliner brush I got in a set and the Real Techniques eyeliner brush. They both work really well and I feel I have a lot of control when applying liner with them. For liquid liner I like the WetnWild H2O Proof liquid eyeliner. This liner will not go anywhere once you apply it! I also like that the brush on the applicator is short, which makes it easier to control. As far as liquid liner, the drug store has some of the best! NYC, e.l.f., Milani…all these brands have great, inexpensive liquid liners. Last is pencil, which is the type of eyeliner I use the least. My all time favorite is the Milani Liquid Eye because it’s an eyeliner pencil that is liquid like. It’s very easy to apply and most importantly for me, easy to smudge. You’ll see what I mean by this later on.
