My How To’s – Green Look Tutorial

June 2, 2008

I’ve been stuck on greens all last week (as you can tell from my current Create This Look). Here’s my tutorial for my favorite green look:

green eyeshadow tutorial

1) Apply an eyeshadow base (I used NAO’s concealer/eyeshadow base) on the entire lid, passed the crease, and up to the browbone.

2) Apply a light beige green eyeshadow (I used MAC’s Equibeige eyeshadow) to the inner lid. Apply a bright green eyeshadow (I used NAO’s Arrant/Fled eyeshadow duo; I used the green side) on the outer lid.

4) Apply a olive green eyeshadow (I used Milani Antique Gold eyeshadow) to the crease and blend up to the browbone. Apply a matte black eyeshadow (I used Artistry Black Tie eyeshadow) on just the outer crease.

5) Use a brown eyeliner as a base and apply it to the lower lashline 1/3 of the way. Apply a dark brown eyeshadow (I used Artistry’s Espresso eyeshadow) on top of the eyeliner. Apply an eyeshadow base to the inner lash line and then, apply a light beige eyeshadow on top. Use a light shimmery beige as a highlighter on the browbone. Finish off with a few coats of black mascara on both the top & bottom lashes. You can also use a white pencil eyeliner on the bottom waterline like I did. That’s completely optional.

My How To’s – Light Yellow & Red Tutorial

May 12, 2008

I’ve been in such a colorful mood lately that I’ve been doing this yellow & red eyeshadow look for the past few days now. It’s now my current favorite look. I finally got my hands on some NYX eyeshadows this past week and they are the eyeshadow I used in this look.

Here’s how I achieved this look :

yellow and red eyeshadow look

1) First, apply an eyeshadow base to the lid, passed the crease, and on the browbone. I used this time Ulta Eye Primer (review coming soon). Apply a shimmery light yellow/light gold eyeshadow to the lid and just the inner crease. I used NYX’s Blondie eyeshadow for the light yellow.

2) Apply a shimmery red eyeshadow on the outer crease and just on the outer corner of the lid. I used NYX’s Rust eyeshadow for the red eyeshadow.

3) Apply a shimmery light beige on the browbone for the highlighter color. Use an eyeshadow primer on the lower lashline and apply the yellow on the inner lashline/red on the outer lashline.

4) Apply black eyeliner on the top lashline. I used Wet n Wild Megaliner Liquid eyeliner in Black. Lastly, I apply a few coats of Artistry Essentials mascara in Black & Artistry Waterproof mascara in Black for a false eyelash look.

Spotlight Product ; Artistry Essentials Lip Shines

May 1, 2008

I’m one of those girls who can never have too many lip glosses. I always carry at least 3-4 different ones stashed in my handbag on a typical day. One of the biggest issues with lip glosses that I face is that either the gloss is too sticky or it makes my lips peel. Not when it comes to Artistry Essentials Lip Shines. These lip shines go on smooth and doesn’t drag on the lips like some lip glosses do. Not to mention they don’t do the dreaded lip peeling like some lip glosses cause. The lip shines have the right amount of shimmer to the color. What’s even more great about these lip glosses is that they have lip colors to match light, medium, and dark complexions. Artistry Essentials takes the guess work out of trying to find which lip gloss looks good on your complexion. For only $13.50, these lip shines are definitely worth a try.
