Britney Spears-ies!

I’ll admit I’m a fan of Britney, especially her music videos! Toxic is my favourite video of hers and it has so many different looks going on that I just had to try them all!

Here’s the first one I tried, Nick photoshopped my hair so it matches hers, HE SAVED ME SO MUCH MONEY IN WIG FUNDS! $$$$$$$$$$$$

Step 1: Primer- elf eye primer in Sheer Step 2: Draw the outline of the red using a red lip liner or eyeliner. I started by drawing a line from the top of my brow down to my inner corner, in my crease (leave the lid blank) out into a winged formation connecting with the end of my eyebrow and then over top of my eyebrow. Step 3: Fill in the red. You can use the same pencil or do what I did and switch to a jumbo pencil (saves a little time). - Nyx jumbo pencil in Cherry Step 4: Apply a matte red eyeshadow all over the red eyeliner to set it. - 120 palette Red Step 5: Using a black eyeliner, fill in the eyelid, line underneath the eye, and draw a strong dramatic wing out the side of the eye. - Nyx jumbo pencil in Slate Step 6; Apply a matte black eyeshadow all over the black eyeliner to set it. I used a small brush so it reduced fallout and didn’t blend into the red. - 120 palette matte black Step 7: False lashes - Hong Kong Lashes #10 Step 8: Black eyeliner and mascara - Marcelle black eyeliner, Cargo Triple Action mascara Step 9: Foundation - do this after the eye makeup to reduce blending/fallout issues. - Almay true blend foundation Step 10: Red blush on the highest part of the cheekbones and lightly blend down. I used the same red eye shadow as my blush! Step 10: Red lips! I used Boots No.7 lipstick In Dare Devil and then patted some of the red eyeshadow over top to match! *Bonus!: Red wig or photoshop! You can also add diamond sunglasses and all the black leather you can find Hope you enjoy!!!

Take Care!

Quick look day!

I was just messing around and came up with this! Hope you like it and give it a try, it was very easy!

1. Maroon Base (Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pomegranate Punk) all over the lid and rounded underneath brow bone. Then take a q-tip and make the outer corner a sharp straight wing.
2. Reddy-brown shimmer colour (120 palette) over inner half of the lid
3. Matte Black over outer corner, blend onto crease (120 palette matte black) 
4. Blue base underneath the eye (Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tenacious Teal) bring up parallel to the maroon base and wing it out.
5. Sparkly blue shadow to set the blue underneath the eye (120 palette sparkle blue)
6. Black liquid liner on upper lash line
7. False lashes (the wilder the better!)
8. Mascara (Almay 1 touch dial up on setting 3)

The end! 

First tutorial! 

I’m a bit rusty but I’m also fairly proud! Brown and Turquoise look! Hope you enjoy!

LEFT 4 DEAD 2 MAKE UP!

The day has arrived! I’ve wanted to do this since I did my first Left 4 Dead 1 look but I constantly wrestled with it…but I am VERY happy with this! I love it! It’s a perfect mix of textures and colours (toot toot goes my own horn). But yes, I am very pleased and I hope you like it!

Anyone who has no idea what Left 4 Dead is, shame on you first off, and secondly it’s a zombie game, it’s very fun and I love it. I chose these colours based off the cover art alone, aside from the green sparkle liner because there is a character named The Spitter and she spits this acid at people to hurt them and it looks just like the liner!

Immediately after this, I will be playing Left 4 Dead 2!

Hope you have had a great weekend!!!

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Manly 120 Palette Yellowy Mustard colour (inner corner)

Saints Row 3 make up! This game is really playful and fun! Purple is the Saint’s main colour and I went with black and silver because they are heavily featured throughout. Enjoy!!!

So basically, I took my Silver Bells look and I added….

1. Make Up Forever #92 to the outer corner and blended into the crease and lower lash line.
2. Tokidoki’s Mozzarella onto the lower lash line for more intensity.
3. False lashes!! (Hong Kong fake lashes #5)
4. Nyc’s Park Avenue Plum blush to the cheeks and deep into the hollows of the cheek for a severe contour.
5. TKB’s Cupcake and Fusion’s Lip Plump in Princess on the lips 

Hope you guys have had a great finale to your 2011 and I wish you all nothing but the best for 2012!

My resolution? More make up looks in 2012 and maybe a video tutorial or two!

Take care! <3

FOTD is also my make up for a hot day!

Pardon the photo quality, I used my phone and snapped the photo on my way out! I did a yellow, orange, and green eye with dark raspberry lips! I got the colour ideas from me shirt :)!

Products used featured in photo above! Steps below!

0. Apply sunscreen! and Eye primer!

1. Using a flat brush, buff a dime size of BB cream all over your face.

2.Take a white liner and line the upper eye.

3.Using a liner brush, apply yellow to the inner third of the eye. Then apply orange to the centre. To blend the two, take the brush and rub it back and forth gently.

4.Apply a dark green to the outer third. To blend this into the orange, take a colour that has similar notes. I used a really light yellowy green. Apply a little of that to the line where the green and orange meet and then blend the orange into it. Seamless!

5. Mascara!

6.Apply a highlighter to the cheeks 

7.Apply a bold raspberry lipstick

8.Apply a light raspberry lipgloss.
