I cannot wait to wear them constantly in the upcoming year! I definitely recommend you check out your local Marshall’s to see if you can snag any deals!
Hope you enjoyed this post!
I hope you had a fantastic Halloween this past weekend! In my opinion, it is one of the most fun holidays because there are so many events going on. I personally had a great time dressing up with my friends in the city. If it isn’t obvious in the picture, I went out as a sailor!
Here are the details about my outfit:
– Hat: Party City
– Dress: Actually was from a dance recital back in 8th grade (not joking)
– Tights: Publix- It was an impulse decision haha
– Heels: Kelly&Katie heels from Designer Shoe Warehouse!
I created a collage of all the makeup products I used to complete my look! They are listed below.
(1) Tarte Amazonian Clay 12Hr Foundation (see review here)- $38, (2) Urban Decay’s Naked2 Palette- $54, (3) Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer- $30, (4) NYX Stick Blush in “Tea Rose”- $6, (5) Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in “111-Kiss of Life”- Kate Moss Collection (see review here)- $5.49, (6) Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner (see review here)- $18, (7) MAC Paint Pot in “Bare Study” (see review here)- $20, (8) Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner- $9.99, (9) MAC Limited Edition Eyeshadow in “Mayhem”
I’m not quite sure what face I was trying to make in the left picture. Haha But I was going for very defined eyes and used a good bit of the Urban Decay “Blackout” color in my crease. I love wearing red lipstick and the color just so happened to match my dress! This makeup look would be great for any occasion as well!
I hope you enjoyed this post! Leave me a comment telling me what you were for Halloween!
Hey everyone! Today I wanted to tell you about a set that I just had to have when I saw it in Sephora. It is the Draw The Line eyeliner set and retails for $30. For that price you get seven different, high-end eyeliners which is an awesome deal in my opinion!
This set contains:
– Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12 HR Wear in Black Lace
– stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Dark Brown
– Kat Von D Deluxe Tattoo liner in Trooper (black)
– Nars Cosmetics Via Veneto Larger Than Life™ Long Wear Eyeliner (black)
– Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner in Blacquer
– Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Double Ended Eye Pencil in Perversion and Rockstar
Since every product has an expiration date, I decided to try only two eyeliners at a time. Once I finish the two, I will try another two eyeliners. Here is what I think of the ones I tried!
Nars Cosmetics Via Veneto Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner– This is my new favorite automatic eyeliner. It literally NEVER smears. I have been wearing it everyday on my bottom waterline & it is such a relief to never have to worry about if the color is smudging under my eye. I have put this on my eyelid as well and the color never transfers to the crease in my eye so I love that. I will have to buy the full size of this when my mini one runs out.
Stay posted for my review on the rest of the eyeliners! Have a fantastic week and let me know what your current eyeliner favorites are!
Look #1: Cute Lil’ Cat
Last year I was so busy I didn’t really get the time to go buy a costume for a pumpkin carving event the day before Halloween. I decided to do what every girl has probably done in her life: goes as a cat. Funny story though– It would’ve been wise to do my makeup once I got to my destination, but instead I did my makeup in my apartment and then had to walk down 10th street (where a ton of people pass by) and then through campus to get to where I was going. Needless to say, I got a lot of weird looks since I had all this makeup on my face.. and it wasn’t even Halloween yet.
In terms of makeup, I wanted to go for an interesting eyeliner design since it’s not something I get to wear on a everyday basis. This look was only possible with the Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner because once it sets, it sets. (See my review here). It is what I also used to draw the rest of the black marks on my face. The eyeshadow combo was from the Urban Decay Naked2 Palette and the pink color I used on my nose and lips was actually NYX’s Stick Blush in Pink Lotus. Overall, I loved the way this look turned out!
Look #2: Zombie in Apt 207
This look was a result of me seeing if I could create a zombie look- and I would say I did pretty well! (I know my neck doesn’t match but that’s because I did this look at night for fun and washed it off right after.)
First thing I did here was to take a concealer in a much lighter tone than my skin & dab it with a sponge all over my face. I chose to use the Physicians Formula Strength Concealer. This created a uneven texture that could be seen as extra skin on the face. Next I took a matte black eyeshadow (from Urban Decay’s Naked2 Palette) & basically smeared it in a messy circle around each eye- zombies need to look tired right? Lastly, I used an Estee Lauder dark red lip gloss as fake blood & created three large streaks on my face. As a finishing touch, the black teeth made this look extra scary.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Have a fun and safe Halloween!!
Girls, I really need to tell you about this awesome product. I started using this product a while back I believe and it lasted me 6 months without drying out. I love this product so much that I am definitely going to repurchase it! It retails for $18 at Sephora and comes in a variety of colors. I tried it in the color Biker – dark smoke.
