Makeup Monday: Drama

Today’s look was inspired by this colorful sequined shirt that I picked up from Ashley Stewart. This shirt features my favorite phrase for the past 10 years, “no more drama.” When husband said we were heading out for some Saturday errands I decided to throw this on with some jeans and blingy sandals. The shirt definitely catches the eye and I thought the makeup should too.

On the eyelids I placed a light coat of turquoise eye shadow and a bit of fuchsia in the crease. Then, I finally enhanced the look with a hint of black and dark purple on the outer edge. All shadows used are from the Morphe Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette which I received for Christmas.

To take this look to the next level I added a mix of turquoise, green, and silver holographic glitter eyeliners over the lid. All of the glitter eyeliners used to enhance this look are from NYX Cosmetics and BH Cosmetics which can be purchased online or in various makeup retail stores.

This look is all about the drama so I added a full strip lash from Kiss. Then I piled on the mascara for the top and lower lash lines.

Usually when my eyes are super busy I stray away from using a pigmented lipstick. But since we are going for the drama I opted for Mac’s Viva Glam Miley to set off this look.

The best part about this colorful creation is that even though during the day it looked good, at night time it looked grand! Hubby and I enjoyed our date and no drama, other than my makeup, happened that day.

Makeup Monday: All About the Eyes

Today’s makeup look features some new goodies that I received for my birthday. I’m thinking of doing a whole video later on to show you everything that I received. But for today, let’s talk about this palette that has made my eyes pop like never before.

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Palette is a recent clearance purchase from Sephora. For today’s eyeshadow look I used Throne (center), Obsidian (outer v), Saturn (transition), Parallel (transitiom), and Pyramid (inner). These colors provided a smoky outside and gleaming inner corner.

I finished the eyes with tons of mascara, black liquid liner on the top, and a dark brown tight line on the bottom. I also added Osiris under my eyes for extra dimension.

Next up for this look is the cheeks that are always blushing because I’m in love with Kevin. But, I think that Love Thing by Mac is also a reason for the rosy color.

My lips are featuring a new gloss by Anastasia as well called St. Topez . This is a gorgeous pearl pink with gold shimmer added. When lightly applied, it complimented the look perfectly.

I hope you enjoyed a quick look at this face of the day. It feels good to be able to get all glammed up with high quality, clearance priced makeup. Even without the added lashes my eyes still popped and I receive compliments all day.

Though the Prism palette is no longer available at Sephora online, you might be able to catch it on clearance in store or at a different retailer.

Make this week glamorous,
