Christina Aguilera "Not Myself Tonight" Inspired Look #3

Friday, May 28, 2010

Hey everyone!

I'm finally back from vacation! As those of you already know (who follow me on Twitter), I went to Myrtle Beach, SC with my boyfriend, Chris and parents. That place is sooo beautiful! I had a lot of fun. It allowed me to bond even more with Chris too, which is definitely a plus. I will do a post with pictures and more info about my trip in a later post.

This particular post features my third (second look is coming in the very near future :)) Christina Aguilera inspired look from her video, "Not Myself Tonight." These looks are sooo fun! I'm going to have to start doing more looks from music videos. I may even jump on the Lady Gaga bandwagon, lol. For this look, I chose to do the look with the "spikes." It was very difficult for me to conceal the ends of the spikes as you can most likely fathom from the close up pics. Here's the look!

All products used were purchased by me.

Products Used (all MAC unless otherwise specified):

TOOLS
~#195 brush
~Sigma 239 brush
~Sigma 219 brush

Coral Crepe

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Hey guys!


If any of you are MAC addicts like me, you probably already know why this look is named this. I named it after the new paint pot I used! It is sooo gorgeous. After doing this look, I realized how much I liked corals. Coral is the perfect shade for those who aren't quite ready to progress to the "bright orange" or not fired up enough to progress to the "fiery red" stages. I'll say this again, coral is sooo gorgeous! It'll work on all skin tones depending on the shades of coral you use and how you use them. See for yourself!





***DISCLAIMER***
I paid for all products used.


Products Used (all MAC unless otherwise specified):


TOOLS
~Japonesque heated eye lash curler
~#242 brush
~#227 brush
~Sigma 219 brush
~#131 brush
~Duo Dark Lash Adhesive


FACE
~Facefront Cosmetics Buenos Aires blush


EYES
~Groundwork paint pot (right under brow)
~Coral Crepe paint pot (below Groundwork and everywhere else in eye area)
~Coral eye shadow (pro)

~Red Brick eye shadow
~Expensive Pink eye shadow
~Samoa Silk eye shadow
~Blanc Type eye shadow
~Teddy eye kohl
~Ardell 110 lashes
~Loreal Paris Telescopic mascara in Blackest Black (for lower lashes)
~Cover Girl Exact Eyelights mascara in Black Gold (to blend in upper lashes)

The final look!



Hope you guys liked this look! Let me know if you want me to do another toned down look for the collection!!!

April 2010 Favorites

Friday, May 7, 2010

Hey everyone!


This post is going to be short and simple and feature my favorite beauty products for the month of April. I was NOT prepared for this video; as a result, I pulled random frequently used products off my vanity while I filmed this video, lol. Here's my favorites though in no particular order!


***DISCLAIMER***
I paid for all featured products. Just because these products may work for me, doesn't necessarily mean they will work for you.

1) MAC Moisturelush eye cream---Awesome eye cream for my peeps with dry skin on the eyes. I don't know about other skin types. I also like the Garnier Skin Renew eye cream. I recently found out they test their products on animals. So, I have to change my shampoo/conditioner now too, smh.
2) MAC 227 brush---Omg. Perfect brush for blending out harsh edges ANYWHERE on the eye. I particularly like using it for blending out the crease color. If you do not own this brush or something similar, get it.
3) Sigma 275 brush---I love this brush for applying my brow highlight. It's so precise and soft. I like using the MAC 227 for actually blending the highlight color downward into the other shades.
4) Sigma 239 brush---Sooo much better than the MAC 239, IMO. It's the perfect sized brush for applying color on my lid and it packs wayyy more color on than the MAC one does. Packing on color is especially important for all my dramatic looks, lol.
5) Sigma 219 brush---Unfortunately, I don't currently own the MAC 219; I only own the short-handled one. I almost always use this color to apply color on my lower lash line, or to sometimes concentrate color on my outer V/crease area.
6) MAC Groundwork paint pot---This is the most perfect eye shadow base that matches almost perfectly with my skin tone! This is my go-to eye shadow base no matter what color combinations I may wear. I change occasionally, but I always this always manages to suck me back in.
7) MAC Chamomile eye shadow---Perfect highlight shade for my skin tone. It's not frosted, so it can practically work with anything. By the way, I don't think it's anything like MAC Vanilla eye shadow, contrary to popular belief.
8) Lush Celestial Moisturizer---This works extremely well with my dry skin. It doesn't take much to coat my entire face unlike my previously used Clean & Clear moisturizer. My skin type is dry-sensitive-normal for reference.
9) Lush Aqua Marina Face Cleanser---This works really well with the moisturizer. It has seaweed in it, which I've heard is really good for dry skin. I noticed that when I tried to go back to my old Clean & Clear products, my face broke out disastrously! I don't know what happened! I guess Lush and I were meant to be...in terms of cleansing products, that is.

That's it for my April favorites! My neutral makeup tutorial should be up in a few days!!!

XOXO,
Candie
