Navy and Lavender Smokey Eyes Tutorial (VIDEO)

Hello Gals!

Today I have a twist on the classic smokey eye for you. To me, smokey eyes are a classic, they are chic and sultry and never go out of trend.
   
Smokey eyes are my absolute fav way to wear eye makeup and because I also love to wear different variations of the look, I will be swapping out the classic shades of charcoals, greys and blacks and replacing them with navys and lavenders from our Prism "I Lilac Orchids" Palette

FOTD - Fall Trend Vampy Lips


Hi Gals,

The most exciting thing about the change of each season is the new makeup trends and techniques that come along with it. I was really happy to see that vampy lips were all the rage again this Fall.

Whenever I sport a vampy lip, I always pair it with nude eyelids and very strong black winged eyeliner. Today, I felt the need to switch things up a bit and pair my vampy lips with a soft white and grey smokey eye. This look features our PRISM lipistick in Nae-Nette, a sultry berry wine shade.

The key thing to remember when wearing a bold lip is to prep the lips first by exfoliating and moisturizing as a bold lip shade will definitely bring attention to your lips, so you want them to look their absolute best. Take a peek at my DIY lip scrub recipe here.

On to the look....




Face:
  •  Revlon Colourstay Foundation “Golden Caramel”       
  • Maybelline Dream Wonder “Sandy Beige”
  • Blackup Bronzer  (cheeks) 
  •  Maybelline Master Glaze Blush stick “Warm Nude” (cheek highlighter)
Eyes:
  • Maybelline Colour Tattoo "Too Cool"
  • Revlon CustomEyes Palette "Smoky Sexy"
  • Lime Crime Liquid Eyeliner "Quill"
  • Maybelline Pumped Up Collosal Mascara"Classic Black"
  •  
Lips: 
  • Prism Invisible Lip liner (overview coming soon)
  • Prism Lipstick " Nae-Nette" 


Are you Gals happy to see the return of "Vampy Lip" Trend this Fall?

Thanks for reading!

Professional Kit Additions: Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Sticks

Hello Gals!

Today, I want to introduce you to the newest additions to my professional makeup kit...Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Sticks. 

I have been testing these cream blush sticks on both myself and my clients for the last month and have been really impressed with them.

When I first became a makeup artist, I always thought that my kit needed to be filled with high end brands only, however over the years my feelings have changed as I came to the realization that it's the quality of a product that counts...not the price tag. The Master Glaze blushes are of great quality for a reasonable price.

Fall Inspired Makeup - Sooty Brown Eyes and Orange Lips

Hi Gals,

With trends transitioning from summer to fall, I wanted to do a fall inspired makeup look for you today...a look that is a little outside the box for me. 

I very rarely wear orange on my  lips, however I wanted to use a shade that complimented the rich chocolatey brown shades on my lids, and that had an autumnal feel.
 


This look features our Prism eyeshadow palette “Espresso Yourself”, Prism Lipstick in "Chezza", which in my opinion screams fall with its beautiful burnt orange hue.



Products used:

Face:

Eyes:
  • Prism eyeliner “Plummed Out” – Chrysalis Cosmetics

Lips:

Thanks for reading Gals!

What are some of the fall makeup trends that you are looking forward to?
