Look: Lucky Indigo

 Here's the second post I promised! I really love how this one turned out; it's much more in my comfort zone than the previous one. I also used false lashes and two different lip colors because I love to see how a lip color changes an entire look.
Check it all out below and don't forget to click the pics to see them in detail!
Products:
Face/Cheeks:
-About Face Velvet Gel Primer from Darling Girl Cosmetics
-Wet N Wild Coverall Foundation and Powder in lightest shades
-Koalification* blush from Darling Girl Cosmetics (contour)
-pale pink eyeshadow from 88 palette (blush)
-Venus eyeshadow from Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette (highlight)
Eyes/Brows:
-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper* primer (trying to use up)
-Darling Girl Cosmetics eyeshadow in Lucky (on lids over glitter glue)
-Darling Girl Cosmetics eyeshadow in Indigo (on outer corner over a blended-out black cream shadow)
-W.O.S from Naked Basics to blend out edges
-theBalm Meete Matte palette Matte Patel (taupe gray in crease and along lower lashline)
-Naked2 from Naked Basics (light warm taupe to blend out edges of crease)
-Venus from Naked Basics (browbone and tearduct highlight)
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara
-Ardell Demi Wispies
-Crave from Naked Basics (darkest brown/black as liner and on brows)
Lips:
-First look: e.l.f. Hypershine Gloss in Fairy (pale iridescent pink)
-Second look: NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Black Berry (black) and NYX Macaron Lipstick in Chambord (black) and bottom lip blended out with Fairy to create an ombre effect

I love this look. In my mind I kind of saw a dark fairy; part light sparkly iridescence, part dark mischief and mystery. ;)

Look: Classy Illusion

 Here is one of two looks I did over the weekend, just for fun. I wanted to use some specific colors from my (huge) BFTE Cosmetics stash because they are such gorgeous colors and I thought they would look pretty together. I'm terrible at using multiple lid colors but I did my best, lol. Please keep scrolling for more :)
Products:
Face/Cheeks:
-About Face Velvet Gel Primer from Darling Girl Cosmetics
-Wet N Wild Coverall Foundation and Powder in lightest shades
-Koalification* blush from Darling Girl Cosmetics (contour)
-Cameo Glo blush from mark. (Avon)
-Venus eyeshadow from Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette (highlight)

Eyes/Brows:
-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper* primer (trying to use up)
BFTE Cosmetics eyeshadows in:
-Classy* (pressed; sparkly wine shade on inner lids)
-Illusion* (pressed; shimmering teal green on middle lids)
-Spellbound* (pressed; shimmering royal blue on outer corners)
-Secret Garden* (pressed; shimmering antique green/gold on inner corners)
-W.O.S from Naked Basics to blend out edges
-Milani pressed eyeshadow in Pitch Black (crease)
-theBalm Meete Matte palette Matte Patel (taupe gray to blend out black)
-Naked2 from Naked Basics (light warm taupe to blend out edges)
-Venus from Naked Basics (browbone and tearduct highlight)
 -Wet N Wild MegaEyes Creme Liner in black
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara
-Crave from Naked Basics (darkest brown/black on brows)

Lips:
-Maybelline Color Elixir gloss in Rose Redefined*


To my frustration, the above pics were all taken before I realized I'd forgotten to line my waterline. :( This often happens; as my eyes are extremely sensitive, I usually save waterlining for the very last step, since my eyes will water uncontrollably after that. Once again I just plain forgot... I was in a hurry to photograph before I lost the light.
The below pics were taken after waterlining with Urban Decay Perversion pencil; I must say I like it so much more with the waterline... it looks more complete:
Artificial light with flash.

 I had intended to do a bold lip as well but ran out of time so I slapped on this gloss I got in my Target Beauty Box. Sort of a MLBB rose shade, pretty nice. :)

It felt good to do makeup again, even though it hurts my fibromyalgia (especially the taking pictures part, blah) but the end result is worth some pain, right?
Thanks so much for reading and stay tuned for another look coming soon, maybe later this week!

Look: Space Age

 Hey everyone! I know it's been a while since I posted. I've been very active on Instagram though so if you want to check me out there please do! I'm @makeupfancy

Now on to my look: I call it Space Age because it looks kind of futuristic/scifi/spacey to me. I knew I wanted to do blue lips because I've been seeing tons of them on Instagram; everyone is posting pics of the NYX Wicked lipsticks so I thought I'd try and create my own. Scroll down for more pics and products used, and don't forget to click to see the pics in fuller detail :)

 Products:

Face/Cheeks:
-Wet n Wild Coverall Foundation and powder in lightest shades
- Darling Girl Cosmetics blushes in Koalification* (contour) and Neon Trees (color)
 -Venus eyeshadow from Naked Basics palette as highlight
-Sugarpill pressed eyeshadow in Tako (white) on tops of cheeks
 Eyes/Brows:
-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper* primer
- Milani Shadow Eyez pencil in Almond Cream as base
Urban Decay Naked Basics palette:
-Crave on lids and smoked out
-Faint to blend out Crave in crease
-Naked2 to blend out crease
-W.O.S to blend out edges
-Venus as highlight
-Presto eyeshadow from theBalm Rockstar palette on outer corners
-Adoration eyeshadow (DGC) on browbone
-Jordana 12 HR Eyeshadow Pencil in Eternal White on inner corners
-neon yellow shadow from Sleek Acid palette on inner corners (over white pencil)
-Wet n Wild creme liner in Black
-Rimmel Scandaleyes pencil in Nude on waterline
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara
-Ardell Demi Wispies
-theBalm "Presto" eyeshadow and NYX powder blush in Taupe on brows
 Lips:
 -NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Black Berry (to line and fill lips)

-BFTE Cosmetics eyeshadow in Blue Bird (low-shimmer cobalt blue)
-Darling Girl Cosmetics loose eyeshadow in Buddy Blue applied to middle of lips
-thick clear gloss from an indie company over top



After I took the above photos, I ate dinner which took off some of the blue, so I applied Portland Black Lipstick Company's lipstick in Indigo Bridge; it's a black base with a little bit of indigo sheen to it. I love how it looks:
 On my Instagram account you can also see a shot of me wearing this makeup, but I took off the blue lips and tried mixing grey with a nude shade to make my own pseudo version of Lime Crime's Cashmere Velvetene. :P

 I certainly enjoyed creating this look and I'm so pleased with how it turned out. I love fun unusual makeup :D

Swatches: "Darling Whos" collection (DGC)


Today I'm finally able to share pictures and swatches of this wonderful holiday collection from Darling Girl Cosmetics! It's the Darling Whos collection and each color is nicknamed for one of Susan's "Darling Girls". 
(Darling Girls are sort of like spokesmodels for DGC; we're just a group of makeup-loving ladies who share looks we create using DGC products. We also share swatches and tutorials. We don't get paid but we do get sent previews of new collections in order to share with everyone! We also get a small discount off orders from the DG shop, and each month we get a coupon code to use when we order so we can try new products, again, to share with you all!)
Please enjoy these swatches, and trust me when I say that pictures don't do them justice! If you scroll to the end, you'll find a handful of looks I've done using some of the colors, as well as a list with links to each of the Darling Girls' sites!

Click to enlarge!
Chelsie-Roo Who, Niecy Woo-Who, Tati-Too Who, Darling-Sue Who, Lefty-Loo Who, Aranza-Zazu Who, Sammi-Sue Who, Cupcake-Woo Who, Emma-Loo Who, Jaycee-Boo Who.
Swatched over Glitter Glue. From bottom to top:
Column #1: Chelsie-Roo Who, Niecy Woo-Who, Tati-Too Who. Column #2: Darling-Sue Who, Lefty-Loo Who, Aranza-Zazu Who, Sammi-Sue Who. Column #3: Cupcake-Woo Who, Emma-Loo Who, Jaycee-Boo Who.
 I did swatch them in the same order as the baggies, but forgot to rotate the photos.. but if you cock your head to the left, it's the same order. lol

Chelsie-Roo Who: a gorgeous mid-toned pinky purple with blue and green flashes! My pics don't show the shift but it is so gorgeous over Glitter Glue.
Niecy-Woo Who: a burgundy with flashes of violet, and gold sparkles. There's a look using this one at the end of the post!
Tati-Too Who: one of my favorites, a sparkly pink-toned copper. There's a look using this one at the end of the post!
Darling-Sue Who: cranberry pink with predominantly green shift. Love!
Lefty-Loo Who: mid-toned pine green with faint violet-pink shift and sparkle. A very unique color! Sadly it was impossible to photograph the shift :(
Aranza-Zazu Who: blackened antique golden-green; so much love for this color! It hits my sweet spot for greens dead on. Sigh♥
Sammi-Sue Who: matte royal purple base with copper and gold sparkle/shift. When used over Glitter Glue, the shimmer and shift take over. Such a unique and gorgeous color. There's a look for this one at the end of the post!
Cupcake-Woo Who: another favorite, a gorgeous brilliant royal peacock blue! It has aqua sparkles and ugh.
Emma-Loo Who: my color, because my sister sometimes calls me Emmaloo xD This color is beyond description but I'll try anyway; the site says it's an icey-pale mauve-lavender with delicate aqua and blue shimmer. In some lights it appears nothing more than a silvery white, but in other lighting you can see the pink tone more, as well as the sparkle. It's a really versatile highlight shade and I love it. I used it in a look at the end of the post!
Jaycee-Boo Who: Last but not least, yet another favorite of mine! Perfect golden taupe, another classic neutral! There's a look for this one at the end of the post!

Using Chelsie-Roo, Sammi-Sue, and Emma-Loo.
Jaycee-Boo on the lid, but not over Glitter Glue so it looks less gold than my swatch. An effortless daily neutral.
Tati-Too on lid; look at the sparkle!!
Niecy-Woo on outer hald of lid. (Inner half is There Is No Dana from the Who Ya Gonna Call collection.)
