Bright smoky purple eye makeup *with sparkles


 Here's a really fun look! I wish my camera showed sparkles better though!
There isn't a lot of sparkles and it doesn't need to be added but it's a fun extra for going out! There is just a thin line of sparkles under the eye, it makes the eye sparkle when the light hits it and can look pretty for going out. :D

First, like always, I put a thin layer of eye primer all over lid and a thin line under the eye. Primer helps SO much! It helps eye shadow to show up way more and also helps it to stay in place all day/night! Next I put the medium shade on inner 3/4 of eye lid, just up into the crease a bit and a thin line under eye on the inner 3/4 as well. Then I blended the dark shade on outer corner, into crease and a small bit under eye on outer corner. I made sure the lines were blended because if you see sharp lines where different shadows meet it will look unfinished. To help that even more, I blended the medium shade shimmer, that matches, on top of other medium shade and blended the lines of the dark shade better. Also I blended a bit of the shimmer under the eye . After all the shadow is done I put on my gel liner with black shadow to set it and help it look smokier. Then I put on LOTS of mascara and eyes are done. :) Or if you want to make the look more fun you can always add sparkles!!
To add sparkles to this look I just used a clear gel sparkle eye liner and put a thin line under lashes, under the eye, and then put some loose sparkles or sparkle dust on top to set it, make it stay in place and make even more sparkly!  After, I had to put a bit more mascara on bottom lashes so they could be visible through sparkles, not just covered in them ;p hehe.

Smokey sparkle new years or party makeup

Here is a fun dramatic look I like to do for going out or just to have fun :)
You cant see as much in pictures but this look has lots of sparkle! I just did a smokey look, a bit darker, plus some sparkles on top of the medium shade. The medium shade and sparkles go on the inner three quarters of the eyelid, just up to the crease. For the medium I used a light beige shadow with gold sparkle liquid liner/shadow on top and then sparkles on top of that. The liquid shadow will help the dry sparkles stay in place and show up more. In the crease and outer corner I used a dark brown and for the highlight i used a bit of white pencil on inner corner with a white/off white shadow blended on top of white liner and under brow blended into dark shadow. Next I used a cream black liner and black shadow on top to make it look smoother. I use a couple different mascaras to make lashes look more bold and I also used false lashes for this look. Its actually a really easy look to do, may look dramatic but its so much fun!
I'll put a couple pics of the rest of the makeup used, just let me know if you have any questions! :) Hope lots of you try it!

Smoky bright turquoise dark eye makeup

 Here is a different look for me, it's so much fun to go so bright!
For my eyes I actually started with the dark first so I could blend the shimmer into it better. Usually I put the medium shade on first, then blend the dark into the outer corner and crease, and then use the medium again to blend edges a bit more. After I blended the dark shade into the crease, outer corner and and bit under outer corner of eye, I blended the medium shade on inner half of eye lid and on top edge of dark shade to blend it better. Also put a thin line of medium shade under eye on inner half, blended into dark shade. Next I blended the highlight on the inner corner and under brow, blended  into dark shade.
    After I finished the eye shadow I used a gel liner with a black shadow on top and on edge to smooth it out and help it stay in place. Next step is mascara and I do go a little crazy with that! Hehe, I use a lot! I always curl my eye lashes a couple times for each eye and always use more than one mascara :D I find I get the best results that way, I get different great benefits from each one. Hehe, my secret is out now.

Here is what I used for the eyes:

Eye Primer -Merle Norman ~Auto shadow base
Medium -Lise Watier ~Folie Aqua (shimmer powder)
Dark -The Body Shop ~31 (peacock something...)
Highlight -Inner corner of eye, white eye pencil with Almay~Mother of Pearl shadow blended on top.
Highlight under brow -Almay ~Mother of Pearl
Liner -Maybelline gel liner ~Blackest Black with Black shadow using small angle brush
Mascaras -Maybelline ~Illegal length fiber extensions-black, Loreal ~Voluminous power collagen-blackest black, Maybelline ~Mega plush volum' express-blackest black WP
*Tip ~I like to use a waterproof mascara last to help set it and just in case I need a little help keeping it on better(tears or rain). I find that it doesn't dry out my lashes as much if the waterproof mascara isn't right on my lashes, other mascaras between. :)

Dont forget to be Awesome!

Makeup can help us feel beautiful and give us more confidence, so its always great to try new looks, but never forget to always try to be the best person you can be! :)
Beauty isn't just about looks, the most beautiful people I know are the most caring, loving, thoughtful and awesome! Being positive, optimistic, and helping others out can make you such a beautiful and awesome person! Kindness to others is the best because it makes other people feel great and it also makes you feel pretty awesome too! :)
So when makeup is all done and you're feeling great or even if you're not feeling %100, don't forget to be awesome because you never know how many people you could be helping, even just with kindness, and youll be showing people what a beautiful person you are! :D

Smoky bright purple eye shadow

 Here's a purple smoky look that is a bit different for me because it has the darker shade a lot further in than I usually go.
 I used a dark/bright purple on lid and blended up into the crease. I didn't go all the way in on the lid, left just a bit on the inner corner to blend a lighter shade. Next I used a lighter pink shadow on the inner corner and blended into the darker shade on the lid and blended it on the edge above crease too. I did the usual highlight with a white pencil on the inner corner and then a white shadow with a blending brush over white liner and blended under brows into the darker shade. Under the eye I just did a thin line of the light pink blended into highlight and a bit of the dark(purple) on outer corner with small angle brush. For the liner, I used a black gel liner with a thin angled liner brush. I made the liner pretty thin on the inner corner and thicker on the outer corner, like always :)
To make it more of a smoky look I put black shadow along the lash line to set the liner and keep it dark but next I put the dark/bright purple shadow on the edge of the liner to blend it together more and made it smokier :)
Next step is curling lashes and lots of mascara! Also, I did my brows first because without them my eyes are pretty much invisible. Brows always help to frame the eyes and help them stand out the most!

Here is the list of makeup used:
Eyeshadow base -Merle Norman, Auto Shadow Base
Dark Shadow -Bourjois, 17 Prune
Medium Shadow -Rimmel Stars, 159 Frivolity

Highlight Shadow -Almay, Mother of Pearl
Liner -Maybelline Gel Liner, Blackest Black + Black Shadow and Bourjois Prune
Brows -Rimmel Pro Brow Pencil, Hazel + Ardell Brow Defining Powder, Mink Brown
Face Cream/Primer -Garnier Skin Renew B.B. Cream, Light/Medium
Foundation -Quo Wet and Dry powder foundation, Soft Bisque
Bronzer -Rimmel Natural Bronzer, 22 Sun Bronze
Blush -Light pink (would like to use a bit of a cooler tone blush next time)
Lips -Victoria's Secret Beauty rush lip gloss, Passion fruit pop

Look at how green my eyes look with purple shadow! Other eye colors can use this look too but it will bring out green the best! :)

Best help for dry lips!

This Lip butter is my very favorite!
The Rocky Mountain soap company has %100 natural ingredients so these lip butters feel so smooth and are so great for your lips!
My friend Vincent gave one to me, I fell in love with it, so he was awesome and mailed me a couple more! I'm so glad he showed me these because I've never tried such a great lip butter/balm!

Let me know if you've tried these and love them too!

Smokey bright purple eye makeup video

Here's the video for Smokey bright purple makeup:

How to make a delicious Mocha at home :)

Here is my recipe for my yummy mocha I make at home pretty much every morning:

I use a pretty big cup so the amounts will probably be a little different for everyone but it's very easy to find the amounts you like. :) This is a lot cheaper than going to a coffee place the have a special coffee made for you! I also think it's a lot better because you know everything in it so you wont be taking in LOTS of calories from all the syrups and creams! Here's what I use: 1 tablespoon Instant coffee, 1 1/2 tablespoons low calorie Hot chocolate and 1 tablespoon Irish cream coffee creamer (other flavors are good too!) Hehe if you spill a little more than a tablespoon, that'll work too ;)
 I keep a spoon in there just so I can mix it up every few sips so it wont settle in the bottom. You might find different amounts you like mixed together, some people like more coffee flavor, others like more hot chocolate. That's what I find fun! My husband actually doesn't like coffee but he loves my mocha's and asks for them most mornings he's home. :)
Try this out and let me know what you think! Hope everyone loves it! :D

Smokey bright eye look

Here's a summery smokey eye look that I think makes your eyes look a lot brighter and a bit more natural too :)

This look is quite easy to do! I just did my usual smokey eye with a warm light cream shade for the medium and a warm brown for the dark but under the eye I put a light golden shimmer. I used a lid primer for the lid before eyeshadow, of course, and also under the shimmer under the eye to make it show up better and stay in place better. Also never forget to put a highlight under your brow and on inner corner of the eyes to really brighten things up! :)
These pictures don't really show the shimmer under my eyes but in different lights it was pretty and shimmery! I will try this kind of look again with different colors and hopefully I can get better lighting!

See how all of the makeup I'm wearing is in warm shades, this helps to tie everything together. If I was wearing a cooler shade blush or lipstick it could look like it clashes and just doesn't match the look. Maybe for some night looks you can mix things up a bit but I think most of the time its best to keep your makeup look in either all cooler shades or all warmer shades. :)

Here's a bigger pic of my eyes so you can see more, sucks that my lashes aren't very visible in these pics with the lighting but lots of lashes always makes eyes look prettier and bigger!

I really hope my followers try this look out love it and I hope newcomers will follow too!

Eyebrows make such a difference!!

Well I made a post earlier and said I was going on a trip but I thought I could fit in one more post before I leave! :)

Here is a picture showing how much of a difference eyebrows make. When I was in high school I was always too afraid to try filling in my brows but I'm so glad I finally did! I've actually been filling in and shaping my brows for at least 5 or 6 years now and I never go out without them now! Hehe. Eyebrows really frame the eye and make your eyes stand out so much more.

If you have thin eyebrows I really hope this picture will make you want to try! Please let me know if anyone wants me to do a video on eyebrows! :)

Well here's the before and after pic!

Stuff to make you feel wonderful! :)

Good morning to all my beautiful followers! :)

This morning I'm feeling like I should spread more joy. I know it's just a simple little thing but I'm posting a bunch of quote/pictures that make me smile even when I'm down so I hope it'll help everyone else too!

I'm actually posting this from my iPhone right now because the computer I like isn't really working and the computer that is working is harder to work on so I thought a quick post from phone would be fun! ;p haha.

Well I hope everyone enjoys these and I will do a lot more makeup posts soon!! Just going for a trip to visit family today or tomorrow so there might be a little break but I'll be back with lots more looks soon! :)

P.s. The picture of the cats is mine, just thought it would be nice to send some love from them too!
