Look and video: Neutral Purple Pop


 Hey everyone! Today I'm bringing you not only a blog post with a new look, but also a video tutorial! I was home alone for a day and decided to take the make the most of it and make a video, lol. I hope you like it!
The look I did is neutral-ish eyes with a pop of purple on lips and cheeks; the featured products are Ladyhawke duochrome eyeshadow and Purple Haze blush by Darling Girl Cosmetics, and MAC Violetta lipstick. Keep scrolling for pics, details, and the video!

Click the pics!
 The video is available in 1080 HD; I don't know how to make this thumbnail bigger so you can either watch in Fullscreen mode or click the Youtube link to open it in a new window :)
Products:
 Face/Cheeks:
-Darling Girl About Face Velvet Gel Primer
-Wet n Wild Coverall foundation in lightest shade
-loose setting powder
-Darling Girl blushes in Koalification* (to contour) and Purple Haze
-Milani eyeshadow in Bella Ivory* to highlight
Eyes/Brows:
-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper*
-Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze on lids as base
-Darling Girl Cosmetics eyeshadow in Ladyhawke (light taupe with gold/blue/green shift on lids)
-Darling Girl Cosmetics eyeshadow in Kilt-y Pleasures (milk chocolate brown matte on outer/inner corners and crease)
-Wet n Wild "Walk the Red Carpet" palette (glittery gold shade patted on center of lid)
-Urban Decay Naked Basics palette W.O.S to blend out edges and Crave as liner
-theBalm eyeshadow in Matt Gallagher in crease
-Darling Girl Cosmetics eyeshadow in Adoration to highlight
-Milani Bella Ivory* as highlight
-Wet n Wild gel eyeliner in Black(tightline)
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara

-theBalm eyeshadow in Presto and Urban Decay eyeshadow in Naked2 on brows
-Sonia Kashuk concealer quad
Lips:
-MAC Violetta lipstick sample from The Body Needs
-Maybelline limited edition lipgloss in Mirrored Plum

I really hate the false lashes but I used them because I have a whole box of them and I don't want them to go to waste, lol. Other than that, I like how this turned out. The duo/shimmer in Ladyhawke shows up mostly goldish because I didn't use it over Glitter Glue, and because I used gold glittery shadow over top; in person the green and blue shift was more visible. It's a really pretty eyeshadow, a taupe with a twist! ;)
I love Purple Haze blush! If you're looking for a wearable purple blush you should give it a try; it is red/pink-toned so it's still wearable, but use a very light hand and blend it well because this blush is super pigmented. I love it and I'm so glad I got to use it for this look.
If you watch my video, please leave a comment here or on Youtube and let me know what you think! I'm still new at this, lol.

Thanks for reading!♥

Look: Autumn Inspired


 This is a look I did a few weeks ago and have been meaning to post but it took me a while to go through the tons of photos I took and everything, lol. I was experimenting with lighting in my basement because it got dark before I could take the pictures; I guess we're heading into the dark season so I'll probably have to get used to this... I'm not a morning person so I can't always do it before the sun goes down. I will miss that about Summer :(

Anyway, for this look I planned ahead of time exactly what I wanted to do using Verdelite eyeshadow from the Bejeweled collection by Sugar Skull Minerals. It's a gorgeous smokey green that seemed perfect for a rich Fall look. I also used Citrine from the same collection as a gold accent. Keep reading for pics and details!

Products:
 Face/Cheeks:
-Darling Girl About Face Velvet Gel Primer
-Wet n Wild Coverall foundation in lightest shade
-loose setting powder
-Darling Girl blushes in Koalification* (to contour) and Cougar
-Sugarpill eyeshadow in Tako to highlight
-Milani eyeshadow in Bella Ivory* to highlight
Eyes/Brows:
-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper*
-dark green matte gel eyeliner on lids as a base
-Sugar Skull Minerals eyeshadow in Verdelite* (emerald green shimmer) on lids
-Sugar Skull Minerals eyeshadow in Citrine* (rich goldenrod) inner corner accent
-theBalm eyeshadows in Matt Gallagher and Presto in crease and outer corner
-Darling Girl Cosmetics eyeshadow in Adoration to blend out edges and highlight browbone
- Sugarpill pressed eyeshadow in Tako (matte white) tearduct/browbone accent/highlight
-Milani Bella Ivory* as highlight
-Wet n Wild gel eyeliner in Black
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara
-bottom lashes from Mesmerizing set by Fantasy Makers
-theBalm eyeshadow in Presto and Urban Decay eyeshadow in Naked2 on brows
-Sonia Kashuk concealer quad (kinda caked up under my eyes though)
Lips:
-Wet n Wild Megalast lipsticks in 918D Cherry Bomb and 919B Vamp It Up
-Revlon gloss in Bordeaux

I really liked how this turned out. I was especially happy with the blending of the shadows in my crease and browbone, though it doesn't show as well in the photos. The lips also look a bit lighter than they were. I wanted a super dark vampy red but it just looks more red, lol. :P

Look: DarlingGirl "Tati-Too Who"


This is my look from Sunday; I wanted to use one of the new Darling Who colors so I went for Tati-Too Who, a gorgeously sparkly metallic copper shade. Keep reading for the details!

Please pardon my un-fulled brows; I was in a hurry to leave for church and wanted to make sure I got pics before I had to leave. Rest assured that I did fill them before finally running out the door. xD
 Products:
 Face/Cheeks:
-Darling Girl About Face Velvet Gel Primer
-Belleme BB Cream in Ivory and Nude Beige
-loose setting powder
-Darling Girl blush in Koalification* to contour
-Darling Girl blush in Neon Trees
-Milani eyeshadow in Bella Ivory* to highlight
Eyes:
-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper*
-Darling Girl Water Color Paint Pot in Concrete Rose all over lids as base
-Tati-Too Who* eyeshadow on lids
-Adoration eyeshadow to blend out edges
-Milani Bella Ivory* as highlight
-theBalm eyeshadow in Matt Gallagher (from Meet Matte palette) in crease 
-Ulta gel eyeliner in Plum
-Wet n Wild gel eyeliner in Black (upper tightline)
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara
Lips:
-NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Nude Pink
-Maybelline Color Whisper in Lust For Blush
-NYX Mega Shine Gloss in Dolly Pink on center of lips

This was my first time using Concrete Rose WPP and I really like it. For me, a good base is essential to keep my eyeshadow fresh on my hooded oily lids. I am always afraid when trying a new base that it will crease horribly on my horrible lids, but this didn't. It behaved pretty much like my usual bases over my usual primer, which is great! I love the pink sparkles, which only adds to the beauty of any shadow you choose to put over it.
Tati-Too Who is such a gorgeous sparkly shadow; it's a shiny "new penny" kind of copper color with a tinge of pink to it, and pink sparkles! So pretty. I didn't even use it over Glitter Glue for this look and it was still so metallic and gorgeous. I will have swatches of each color from the new collection posted soon, I can't wait to show you how great they are! Or, you could just go buy the collection now because who likes waiting, anyway? ;)

Thanks for reading!♥

Eye Look: Darling Whos


Products:
-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper*
-Darling Girl Glitter Glue
-Chelsie-Roo Who* on main lid and above crease
-Sammi-Sue Who* on outer corner and lower lashline
-Emma-Loo Who* on inner corner, outer wing, browbone, and waterline
-Rimmel Scandaleyes pencil in Light Blue on waterline (with Emma-Loo Who over top)
-Sugarpill pressed eyeshadow in Tako
-Wet n Wild Cream Eyeliner in Black
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara
-bottom lashes from Mesmerize set by Fantasy Makers
 -Urban Decay eyeshadow in Crave on brow

 Apologies for the boring name but I couldn't think of anything clever, lol. I used some shades from the new collection by Darling Girl Cosmetics; Chelsie-Roo Who is a gorgeous medium pinky-purple with green shift which didn't really want to show up in my photos. Sammi-Sue Who is a royal purple base with golden shift and shimmer; applied heavily over glitter glue it almost looks like a shimmery taupe, so awesome. You can see it best right along my lower lashline. Emma-loo Who is my color in this collection, named after a little nickname my sister sometimes calls me :3 It's a super pale mauvey white with blue, green, and aqua shimmers. I applied Chelsie-Roo in the very outer corner of my lower lashline and then blended Emma-Loo out into a wing. I love how they look together.
Every color in this collection is beautiful and I highly recommend checking it out; Susan never disappoints! I'll have swatches of the entire collection posted soon. :)

Thanks for reading!

Lips:
-Darling Girl tinted lip balm in Sweet Pea

 Jaycee-Boo Who is one of the shades from the brand new Darling Whos holiday collection which just launched from Darling Girl Cosmetics. I received the sample set and of course they're gorgeous! I will be posting swatches and yummy things soon! ;)
Jaycee-Boo Who is a beautiful neutral everyday shade that is right up there with all the other gorgeous neutrals Susan makes. I wore it without glitter glue so it was soft and creamy with lovely soft sparkles. I loved how it turned out in my look today, especially paired with my favorite corner/crease shades Naughty Bits and Between the Sheets.♥

Sweet Pea tinted balm... how can I describe this product? It wasn't what I expected but I LOVE IT. I thought it was going to be like a mauvey pink My Lips But Better shade but it's much more plum-grey than it looks in photos. The camera only seems to pick up the pink tones in it but trust me, it's darker and more plummy-purple-grey in person. I absolutely love the color and I can see myself wearing it a ton this Fall. The formula is nice, very pigmented and also very buildable; long-lasting, non-drying but not slippery or glossy. It has an odd smell which I attribute to some of the natural oils in the ingredients possibly. Not offensive exactly, and certainly not enough to prevent me from wearing it. Sadly it doesn't seem to be on the site anymore, I'm not sure if it was an experimental product or if it might make a return. I will be sure to let you know if I find out. :)

Thanks for reading!
