Sometimes, we just have to go for the gold! Ok, maybe a have a touch of Olympic fever… but seriously, bring out this look for your next party or concert and dazzle the night away. By now you know I like easy looks that have a lot of payoff. You can’t get much easier than this one. Stamp, line and go! Here’s how:¬† (more…)

NIGHTTIME MOODY MAKEUP

Try this eye the next time you go out and bring out your moodier side ! This is especially perfect for those of you who don’t want to look like you spent time doing a smoky eye, but want the same drama. It’s such a gorgeous middle ground between the hardness of black and the softness of gray. Here’s how: (more…)

Each time you get dressed up to go out, you have many ¬†different eye makeup options… it really just depends on your mood and outfit! You can draw a cat eye, you can leave them bare to keep the focus on a bold lip, you can rim the inner waterline, you can do a classic smoky eye, or… you can do a Sparkle Smudge! It’s dramatic and ultra-feminine and very compliment-heavy. So add this option to your repertoire and I trust you’ll bring it out on the perfect occasion! Here’s how: (more…)

BEDAZZLE ME

I love this look for Homecoming, New Year’s or any time you’re feeling really festive! And because the glitter is light and paired with a light shadow instead of a dark smoky eye, it’s more wearable than you might think. Just know that it’s compliment-intensive so be prepared to say “oh thank you” a lot! Here’s exactly what I did on singer-songwriter Lexie Hofer above:

TOOLS:

STEPS:

  1. Apply the light pink shadow all over the lid and crease.
  2. Press your finger in any kind of balm to get it slightly tacky. MAC Pro has a Mixing Medium that works great, but if you don’t want to make the investment, use a light layer of lip balm. Then press it in the 2-D glitter to load a light layer and stamp it across the lid.
  3. Press your finger in the 3-D glitter
  4. Stamp it across the lid and crease.
  5. Line your upper lid with the black liquid liner. Wing it out and up for a cat eye (optional).
  6. Wrap your finger with Scotch tape, making sure the sticky side is on the outside. Press it wherever glitter has dropped down on your cheeks to pick it up. Revisit my Glitter Picker Upper Tutorial for more details!
  7. Sweep the black shadow along the lower lashline (I concentrated it on the outer half but you can certainly apply it along the entire lashline).
  8. Finish with a couple coats of mascara.

I paired it with a hot pink lipstick (Dior Addict Extreme in Lucky) but you can rock a red too!
