Silver and Purple Makeup Look

Hi guys! I normally have a Mani Monday post for you today, but my nails are an absolute mess today. I’ve been pretty busy the last few days so I haven’t had a chance to re-do my nails. So instead, this week I’m going to switch things up a bit and do a makeup look today and a manicure related post later this week.

This is a look that I did last week for Thanksgiving and I was really happy with how it turned out. I did a silver foiled lid, smoked out with a darker shadow, with a pop of purple under the eye. I didn’t really know what my plan was, I just started playing with shadows and this is what I ended up with. I was really happy with it and I’ll definitely be re-creating it in the future. I love silver and purple together. My original wedding colours were going to be purple and silver until I saw purple and turquoise together and fell in love.

I really need to play with the Makeup Geek Foiled Shadows more, they are just so nice to work with. I’m still using my finger to apply them because it seems to be the easiest way to get a nice, even and pigmented application.

Smoky Purple Look using the Morphe 35W Palette

P1010406

Hi guys! Today I wanted to share with you another look that I did using the Morphe 35W Palette. I can’t get over how much I love this palette. There is just so much you can do with it and the price is incredible! Unlike my last look which was a very warm based look, this one uses grey and purples.

Products Used:
Foundation: L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in Classic Ivory
Concealer: Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Concealer in Ivory
Powder: Anastasia Beverly Hills Banana Powder (undereye) and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light (all over face)
Blush: Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Fetish
Contour: Anastasia Beverly Hills Fawn
Highlight: Too Faced Candelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo (both shades mixed together)
Eyes: Morphe 35W Palette (See picture above for numerical references as the shades are not named) 1 (crease/transition), 2 (crease/centre of lid and under eye), 3 (outer crease/outer half of lid and under eye), 4 (a little bit on the outer corner), 5 (inner half of lid and under eye).  Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Smoke (water line). Dior Show Maximizer (primer on lashes). Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (lashes).
Brows: Milani Easybrow Automatic Pencil in Taupe and L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper in Light to Medium
Lips: MAC Up the Amp

Given how much I love the colour purple, I was really happy with this look. The deepening shades of purple gave the look a smoky feel without being too dramatic. Blending is very important to achieving the seamless transition between the purples. For my crease I used the Sigma E40, for the lid I used the Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush and under my eye I used the Sigma E30. I went back in and blended out the shadow on my lid with the E40.

Mani Monday #5

2015-09-28 12.51.40

Hi guys! It seems like I’m in a definite vampy-nails place right now. Just like last week I am rocking another vampy manicure. I actually do love vampy nails all year round, but probably wear them the most during the fall and winter. This manicure combines two of my favourite things, vampy nails and the colour purple, and it is another very fall-appropriate manicure.

Products Used:

OPI Chip Skip
OPI Nail Envy Maintenance (1 coat)
OPI Vampsterdam (2 coats)
Glisten & Glow HK Girl Fast Drying & Super Shiny Top Coat (as always!)

Vamspterdam has a great formula. It applies like butter and isn’t at all patchy. With the addition of HK Girl, my nails were dry and I was able to use my hands (with some limitation) in about 10 minutes. This top coat is seriously amazing.

What is your favourite kind of manicure to wear (ie. brights, glitters, shimmers, nail art, etc)? Let me know in the comments down below!

Purple Eye Look

P1000991 (2)

Hi guys!

So today I wanted to show you my favourite [almost] all purple eye-look! Purple is my absolute favourite colour to wear on my eyes. This is because any shade of purple makes green eyes pop. Even adding purple to my under eye to an otherwise neutral look can really make a huge impact.

P1000985 (2) P1000981 (2)

Products Used:
Foundation: L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in Classic Ivory
Concealer: Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Concealer in Ivory
Powder: Anastasia Beverly Hills Banana Powder (undereye) and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light (all over face)
Blush: Tarte’s Dollface
Contour: Anastasia Beverly Hills Fawn
Highlight: The Balm’s Mary Lou-Manizer
Eyes: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Kat Von D’s Dios (Innerstellar Palette – blended into crease), Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Psychedelic Sister (all over lid as a base and under eye), and Colourpop Dare (all over lid). Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant (lashes).
Brows: L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper in Light to Medium
Lips: Colourpop Lippie Stix in Tootsi

The exact steps I took for my eye shadow was:

  1. Prime eyes
  2. Add Psychedelic Sister all over lid and smudge it all over with my finger, also applied to my water line at this point
  3. Apply Dare over top with my finger (it is one of the easiest ways to apply Colourpop’s unique formula)
  4. Apply Dios to crease to blend everything out and avoid harsh edges

The reason I add the eye liner as a base is because I find the shade Dare to be a little bit sheer. This gives the shadow more pop. I do sometimes do this without the eye liner base for a less intense look.
