Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2011 Makeup

Hello Beauties!
Happy Monday :). The weekends have been flying by too fast, I think it’s because xmas is coming up and I haven’t done any of my shopping yet. Ah, well, I’ll make it happen ;). As you all know, last week the Victoria’s Secret fashion show aired so I decided to recreate the makeup for all of you. Although the show itself is very glam and over the top, the makeup was pretty subdued and low maintenance.

A few behind the scenes pics from the show. These women are some kind of obnoxiously attractive species of female, it’s really not fair :P.

The look was based around flawless skin, rosy cheeks, strategic highlighting, and lightly defined eyes. Sorry for the pic quality, it was one of those days!
Photobucket The eyes were lined in black with a slight wing on the outer corners, followed up with lots of mascara and groomed brows.

The foundation was buffed in really well and blush was applied right on the apples of cheeks, carried a little higher into the hairline. Lips were a soft, glossy pink.

::Products and application::
Face:
-MUFE HD primer buffed in with a flat top foundation buffer.
-MUFE Matt Velvet + foundation buffed in really well with a flat top foundation buffer. Applied two very thin coats for best coverage.
-MUFE Full Cover concealer on blemishes and under eyes.
-Tarte Smooth Operator translucent powder buffed over foundation.
-MAC Well Dressed and Stunner blushes blended together starting on the apples of the cheeks, carrying the leftover color up along cheekbones to the hairline.
-Cargo bronzer (the lightest shade) blended along hairline, along hollows of cheekbones, and jawline.
-Laura Mercier highlighting powder in Starlight blended on top of cheekbones going up and around brows.

Eyes:
-Revlon Colorstay liquid liner.
-Covergirl Lashblast mascara.

Lips:
-Rimmel 1000 kisses lip liner in Natural.
-MAC Creme Cup lipstick.
-Smashbox Pixel gloss.

What did you think of the show? Let me know if you recreate the look, I’d love to see!

Two EOTD’s Featuring Inglot Colors

Happy Sunday Beauties!
How are you? I’ve been in my pj’s for most of the weekend, trying to get over being sick. Took a quick trip to Hollywood yesterday morning and I cannot wait to show you the haul from my new favorite makeup store :). Here are some EOTD’s I threw together using my new Inglot colors for most of the eyelid, blending out with some Urban Decay neutrals. I’m even more obsessed with Inglot now, they held up all day along with being really nicely milled and pigmented.

Z Palette Review

Happy Tuesday Dolls!
How’s your week going? Ready for the turkey day festivities? I’m counting down to the delish feast that my best friend is putting together :).
On to the good stuff! As my kit/makeup collection grows, I’ve found myself buying shadows that don’t come in a little box/container–they’re the loose metal pans that are meant to be in palettes. I was getting pretty tired of having to keep the shadows in the plastic packaging because they were a pain to open up and they were easily damaged in my purse. I looked around for a while because I didn’t want to limit myself to one company’s shadow pan shape/size, I wanted to throw all of my loose pans together and keep them in one place. I found the Z Palette and couldn’t be happier with my purchase! The case is made out of sturdy cardboard, has a clear cover so I can see all of my colors, and it’s lightweight/easy to carry. The magnetic base grips the metal shadow pans really well, I’ve shaken it open and flipped it upside down and the shadows haven’t fallen out once. If you have non-metal shadow pans, you can just stick a little magnet to it (also sold on the site).

I love the sleek look of the palette so much. They come in a large (above) and small size, and are available in different colors. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a freestyle magnetic palette.  Click here to visit the company website.

Ruby Woo FOTD

Happy Sunday Beauties!
I hope you’re all having a great weekend :). I’m staying in today, trying to rest up before another busy week. Seriously, cannot wait for this semester to be over so I can sleep more than 5 hours a night. The wedding I did makeup for went beautifully and I cant wait to post pics when the photographer gets them back to the bride :). Makeup school is moving along fantastically and I’m a little sad that I only have a month left to go. I’ve been learning so much, and making awesome friends in class–taking the course has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I’ve got business cards printed and now I’m going to start working my butt off to build up a clientele and get my name in the industry. If you’re in Southern California and would like to get glammed up, send me and email and we’ll set something up :). Here’s a 50’s inspired FOTD from yesterday:

Before lipstick. Just did some neutral contouring around the eyes along with some dramatic winged liner and lots of mascara:
