Feeling Sexy? A Holiday Makeup Look & Tutorial

dramatic makeup for the holidays

The season of holiday parties is upon us!  I always love getting done up for Christmas parties and the like.  I feel as though I can be more adventurous this time of year and am able to put on some makeup that I wouldn’t normally leave the house in…no longer stuck waiting for those special occasions.

Christmas Party makeup (how to get a black and copper smokey eye)

Last year, I tried out my very first Pin-Up makeup look and was sporting a bold red lip.

This year (or at least for party #1) I went with a metallic smokey eye.  The Copper pigment adds enough glitz and glam to make the look festive and the use of black kicks the look up a notch into the world of dark, dramatic and sexy.

Get the eyes:

  1. Step 1 is “Tame those brows!”.  Fill them in, glue them down, do whatever it is you do to get that area ready.  🙂
  2. Prime your lid and all the way up through your crease to your brow.  I used Urban Decay’s Primer Potion.  Make sure you are always using some sort of primer as a base, whether you want a soft daytime look or something dramatic for evening.  It provides you long wear time and will help you avoid creasing.  Your shadows will also apply more vibrantly and stay true throughout the day/night, without “melting off”.  
  3. Next, take a piece of tape (scotch, masking, painters, any will do) and get it in line with your lower lash line and where your eye brows end.  Press it down, making sure it is nice and smooth with a good seal.  It will take you a few minutes to get used to how this feels when you blink.
  4. Using a flat eye shadow brush, I pressed on “Copper” pigment by MAC all over my lids, working from the inside out.
  5. Using a stiff dome brush, start dusting a matte black shadow throughout your crease, and down along the outside of your eye, along the tape line.  Using this same colour and brush, lightly smudge this along your lower lash line too, the outside half only.  I used “Corrupt” by Makeup Geek as my matte black shade.  It’s really intense and heavily pigmented.  I suggest using a matte shadow for this step so the Copper shade stands out more…and when I am putting black this high on my brow bone, I feel like the matte texture helps tone it down slightly and isn’t as overpowering as a lustre or frost might be.  You can feel free to use a glitzy black if you’d prefer.
  6. I decided against an inner corner highlight with this look.  Instead, I used “Goldmine” eyeshadow by MAC on the inner quarter of my lid to gently lighten the copper and create a very subtle gradient effect.
  7. Then I took a fluffy crease blush and gently dusted “Brule” eyeshadow by MAC underneath my brows.  Brule is a soft matte, nearly nude shadow that is close to my natural skin tone.
  8. At this point you should be ready to pull that tape off!  If necessary, perform any clean up that the tape might have missed.  A Q-tip dipped in makeup remover will do the trick!
  9. For eye liner I used Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner in “Trooper” on my lid.  The felt tip on this makes it really easy to apply and wing out the edges.  To create a similar look to what I have here, you want to continue your line out past your lashes and gently flick it upwards.  Now, draw that line down to your lower lash line and fill in the middle.  On my waterline I opted for Makeup Forever’s Aqua Eyes waterproof liner in black.  For this, I applied it once to my waterline, let it sit for a couple of minutes and then went back in with the pencil again to make it more opaque.  Both of these eye liners are from my “Draw the Line” Sephora Favorites sampler that I am super in love with, it’s great value and you should check it out if you haven’t already, it has definitely proven to be one of the best purchases I have made all year!
  10. Finish the look with at least two coats of mascara.  I used “They’re Real!” mascara by Benefit.  Normally if I am wearing false eyelashes I go for a soft basic mascara.  But because I was only planning on wearing lashes on the outer half, I used my most intense volumizing mascara.
  11. (Optional) As always, the addition of false eyelashes is optional.  For this look, I used “305” by Ardell.

My Birthday Makeup

black and silver smokey eye makeup look

So another year has come and gone and I am officially older!  I’m not sure where the time goes.  It was my 28th birthday last week and although I haven’t partaken in any big festivities to celebrate it since I was a kid, my husband still treated me with flowers and took me out for a lovely date night.

I absolutely love how bright the flowers are, they really helped brighten up our apartment this time of year seeing as the sun doesn’t like to help with that at the moment!  Aren’t they pretty?!

bright colourful flowers

For my makeup I wanted to experiment with some eyeshadow shades I haven’t tried before (other than swatching) and a method I’ve only done once.

The eyeshadow being Makeup Geek:

White Lies, Mercury, Galaxy and Corrupt eye shadow swatches by Makeup Geek

The method being scotch tape.  The first time I stuck scotch tape on my face was for my first attempt at an Arabic eye makeup look.  The tape serves the same purpose it would as if you were painting.  It stops the colours from spilling over where they aren’t wanted.  It creates a nice precise line with a clean, sharp, finished look.

I used it here with this look to create a dramatic and clean line on the outside edge of my eye makeup.

Wanting to know what I did?

black and silver smokey eye makeup look

  1. I like to start out with filling in my brows first to help frame the area.  For this I used “Spiked” brow pencil by MAC Cosmetics (a new addition to my collection).
  2. Prime your lid and all the way up through your crease to your brow.  I used Urban Decay’s Primer Potion.  Make sure you are always using some sort of primer as a base, whether you want a soft daytime look or something dramatic for evening.  It provides you long wear time and will help you avoid creasing.  Your shadows will also apply more vibrantly and stay true throughout the day/night, without “melting off”.  MAC Paint Pots or cream bases will work for this too (NYX’s eye pencil in Milk is one of the most popular drug store choices).
  3. Next, take a piece of tape (scotch, masking, painters, any will do) and get it in line with your lower lash line and where your eye brows end.  Press it down, making sure it is nice and smooth with a good seal.  It will take you a few minutes to get used to how this feels when you blink.
  4. Using a flat eye shadow brush, I dabbed on “Mercury” eyeshadow by Makeup Geek all over my lids, from the inside corner to the outside corner.  This is a nicely pigmented smooth basic silver.    While you have this colour out, take a small dome brush and go along the inner half of your lower lash line as well.  I actually really prefer this shadow to MAC’s “Forgery”.  I find that Mercury gives nicer coverage with less work and also seems to have a formula that feels less dry.  For this step, you can of course use any silver eyeshadow you want.
  5. Using a fluffy crease brush, start dusting a darker grey shadow throughout your crease, blending upwards.  Also be sure to hit the outside corner of your eye as well so you almost have a fading effect.  Using this same colour and a small dome brush, lightly smudge this along your lower lash line, the outside half only.  I used “Galaxy” by Makeup Geek as my gunmetal like shade.  It has a nice creamy formula too that glided on easily with no fuss.
  6. Then, using  the same fluffy crease brush, gently apply a touch of black eye shadow at the outside edge of your eye and throughout the outside half of your crease.  This will further intensify your look, creating a more dramatic effect.  I used “Corrupt” eye shadow by Makeup Geek.  This is a matte, true black.  It is heavily pigmented and very powerful.  A little goes a long way with this one!
  7. After brushing off all the black, I took that same fluffy brush and took “White Lies” which is a soft white matte eyeshadow from Makeup Geek’s collection and swept it along the top edge to soften the look slightly.  This also acted as my brow bone highlight.
  8. Now you are ready to pull that tape off!  If necessary, perform any clean up that the tape might have missed.
  9. For eye liner I used Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner in “Trooper” on my lid.  The felt tip on this makes it really easy to apply and wing out the edges.  On my waterline I opted for Makeup Forever’s Aqua Eyes waterproof liner in black.  For this, I applied it once to my waterline, let it sit for a couple of minutes and then went back in with the pencil again to make it more opaque.  Both of these eye liners are from my “Draw the Line” Sephora Favorites sampler that I am super in love with, its great value and you should check it out if you haven’t already.
  10. Finish the look with at least two coats of mascara.  I used Clinique’s Lash Doubling Mascara.
  11. (Optional) Add false eyelashes to your look.  I used “117” by Ardell along with the Duo eyelash glue that dries black.

What do you guys think of this makeup look?  And I’m curious if you have ever used tape when applying your makeup before?

Date Night Makeup

Life can be busy and its easy to get caught up in the tornado of the everyday.  But my husband and  I always try to set aside time for just the two of us.  We simply call them Date Nights, and try to spoil ourselves with them every week or every two weeks.  We get ourselves all cleaned up and venture out of our tiny crappy apartment to enjoy a dinner, a movie and each others company without the distractions the technology of our apartment grants us.  So last weekend we did just that.

colorful makeup look using MAC Cosmetics

I opted for a bright colorful smokey eye with a subtle lip and big curly hair for our date night.

I thought this make-up looked dramatic enough for a fun evening out, but not so intense as to be mistaken for a Halloween look.  What do you think of it??

Here is how I created this look:

Steamy and Satellite Dreams eye shadow - make up looks

  1. As always, fill in your brows first to help frame the area.  I used Mystery eyeshadow by MAC Cosmetics for this.
  2. Prime your lid and all the way up to your crease.  I used Urban Decay’s Primer Potion.  Make sure you are always using an eyeshadow primer, no matter what type of look you are going for.  It provides you long wear time and will help you avoid creasing.  Your shadows will also apply more vibrantly and stay true throughout the day/night, without “melting off”.  MAC Paint Pots or cream bases will work for this too (NYX’s eye pencil in Milk is one of the most popular).
  3. Using a flat eye shadow brush, dab Steamy eye shadow by MAC all over your lids. (from the inside of the eye to the outside of the eye).  Steamy is a frosty teal shade that glides on very smoothly and vibrantly.  Feel free to use any teal shade that you might have at home.
  4. Using a stiff dome brush use your Satellite Dreams eye shadow (or a similar purple shadow that you might already have) throughout the crease and up onto your brow bone, blending gently up and out.
  5. Then, using a fluffy crease brush, sweep a touch of black eye shadow at the outside edge of your eye and slightly up through your crease to add depth and intensify the look.  I used “Black Tied” eye shadow for this.  It is a basic black lustre shadow with silver specks.
  6. After brushing off all the black, I took that same fluffy brush and took “Brule” which is a very soft nude color close to my natural skin color and swept it around the edges of color in an attempt to soften the lines and a less blocky look.
  7. To highlight, I used “Phloof!” eye shadow by MAC.  It is a frost eye shadow perfect for highlighting your brow bone or the inner corner of your eye.  It has very slight pink undertones which makes this less harsh than a straight white frost would be.
  8. For eye liner I used Master Precise Felt Tip Liquid Liner (available at Ulta in the US and at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada) on my lid.  I didn’t apply any on the lower side of my eyes.  I wanted to create a softer and more open look and not close off my eyes.  Instead I opted for a white waterproof pencil to brighten my waterline.  For this, I used Sephora’s 12H Waterproof Crayon Jumbo.
  9. Finish the look with at least two coats of mascara.  I used Clinique’s Lash Doubling Mascara.
  10. (Optional) Add false eyelashes to your look.  I used “Hotties” by Ardell along with the Duo eyelash glue that dries black.

For the rest of this look:

Face > For my under eye concealer I used Erase Paste by benefit in shade No.1.  Then, all over I used Clinique’s Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer in shade 01 topped with MAC’s Studio Careblend Pressed Powder in shade Light Plus.

Cheeks > a soft pink frost powdered blush from Too Faced’s “Natural Face” palette.

Lips > For my lips I started with Celebutard lipstick from Kat Von D’s Painted Love Lipstick collection.  Then, because I wanted a slightly glossier look, I decided to add on Hourglass’s “Child” from their line of Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Glosses.

Hair > Earlier in the day, I put Flexi-Rods (Super Rollers) in my hair and by the time we were ready to go I simply pulled them out and pinned back a small portion from the front.  I love that I can get soft, non-crunchy curls without putting my hair through any heated torment.

Feeling Earthy? (a rainforest makeup tutorial)

how to apply eyeshadow

It feels like forever since I’ve done an eye makeup tutorial.  This one is super simple and fast to do.  I tried to make a season appropriate look for this time of year, but still have some fun with it.  With this eye shadow combination I still get my “necessary” pop of colour with the bold green, but the look is grounded by the brown eye shadow.

 

I used 3 eye shadows from MAC Cosmetics – Swimming, Humid and Mystery.

MAC eye shadow swatches - "Mystery", "Swimming" and "Humid"

But you can certainly recreate this look with any similar combination of shadows.

How to create this super simple look:

*follow any of the links below for swatches, where to buy and other shades available*

  1. As always, fill in your brows first to help frame the area.  I used Mystery eyeshadow by MAC Cosmetics for this.
  2. Prime your lid and all the way up to your crease.  I used Urban Decay’s Primer Potion.  It is super important to use a primer if you want long wear time and to avoid creasing.  Your shadows will also apply more vibrantly and stay true throughout the day/night.
  3. Using a flat eye shadow brush, dab Swimming eye shadow by MAC all over your lids. (from the inside of the eye to the outside of the eye).  Any bright green will work for this, you don’t need this specific shadow.  Just make sure it is not lime green, you want it to be more of an earthy tone.
  4. Using the same brush (brush off all the green pigment first on a kleenex) use your Mystery eye shadow (any dark brown matte eye shadow will do) throughout the crease and up onto your brow bone.
  5. Then, using a fluffy crease brush, sweep Humid eye shadow (or a nice dark forest green) gently back and forth through your crease. This will help meld the dark brown and the bright green together, creating a more fluid and blended look.
  6. For eyeliner I used Master Precise Felt Tip Liquid Liner (available at Ulta in the US and at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada) on my lid.  I didn’t apply any on the lower side of my eyes.  I wanted to create a softer and more open look rather than closing off my eye.
  7. Finish the look with at least two coats of mascara.  I used They’re Real! mascara by benefit.
  8. (Optional) Add false eyelashes to your look.  I get such volume and curl out of this mascara I decided not to bother with lashes.

Feeling Dramatic? (eye makeup tutorial)

dramatic eye makeup

I believe everyone knows by now that I love playing with bold and bright makeup, but I also have a lot of fun with dark and dramatic makeup as well.

I wanted to use one of my MAC pigments that I hadn’t gotten around to trying out yet, the Gold (pro) metallic shade.  And I ended up with this dark golden cranberry look.

It is a very dramatic makeup look and not very suitable for day, but perfect for a night out.

Let’s take a look at how to create this look:

  4. Using the same brush (brush off the gold first on a kleenex) use your Cranberry eyeshadow throughout the crease and up onto your brow bone.
  5. Then, using a fluffy crease brush, lightly dust a true black gently back and forth through your crease.  For this, I used Corrupt eyeshadow by Makeup Geek.  I’ve never seen a black so black!
  6. I then highlighted my brow bone and inner corner of my eye using Zephyr eyeshadow by Urban Decay, a shimmery white.
  7. Using the same Gold pigment again, I went and lightly smudged it below my lower lashes.
  8. For eyeliner I used Master Precise Felt Tip Liquid Liner (available at Ulta in the US and at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada) on my lid and Blacktrack Fluidline by MAC on my waterline.
  9. Finish the look with at least two coats of mascara (remember we are going for dark and dramatic here).  I used Clinique’s High Impact Mascara.
  10. (Optional) Add false eyelashes to your look.  I used #305 accent lashes by Ardell.  (They are only on the outside corners)

Lips > Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polishin shade Leslie

Hair > I used a 1″ Bombshell Curling rod by Sultra to create the long waves.  I love to use this on my hair, because your hair keeps its length as opposed to using a curling iron or a straightener where you get ringlets and your hair shrinks up several inches.

my Inglot cherry popped

I ventured into an Inglot in Montreal with Samira a couple of weeks ago and decided it was certainly time to pop my cherry.  Inglot, a 25 year old cosmetic company from Poland has only 4 stores in Canada (all in Quebec) and only 9 locations in the USA (find a store near you), so Inglot is not a brand that you will run into often – depending on your locale.  When I ventured into one of the 3 Montreal stores, the sales associate immediately started to tell me a little bit about the brand…comparing their products to that of MAC Cosmetics and Makeup Forever.   The mission:  to produce high quality products at fair and reasonable prices, using only the best possible ingredients and raw materials from the most reputable suppliers.

Their “Freedom System” of palettes is what she said they are most famous for.  The combinations were endless and I knew I was in trouble.  There are 15 different shapes and styles of palettes.  You can have only “face” palettes” or only “eye” palettes if you want, but there are also combination palettes where you can have 2 eyeshadows, a blush and a face powder all together.  How amazing is that?!?  Everything is customizable!   When you are in the store, they let you walk around with a big magnet, so you can just pull out whatever you like and stick it on your magnet so you can see everything together and keep track of what you are interested in.  Genius.

So let’s take a peek at what I got!  I took a lot of pictures, so please hang in there!

Inglot PackagingInglot Palette and Eyeshadows

First, let’s take a closer look at the AMC Pure Pigment Eye Shadow I purchased in shade 70.

AMC Pure Pigment Eye ShadowAMC Pure Pigment Eye Shadow

Their range of pigments is massive.  I’ve linked to the US online store so you can see all of the colours available.  Tell me – what competitor offers this many options???  You get 2g of product for $14US.  I believe I paid $19CAD in store in Montreal.  This colour is stunning.  I was sold before I even swatched it in store, all it took was seeing it sitting on the table.  Just look at this swatch of AMC Pure Pigment Eye Shadow in #70 in natural light.

AMC Pure Pigment Eye Shadow swatch

For palettes, after much deliberation I opted for the 10 eyeshadow palette.  Because of their instore promotion, I got 10 colours of my choice and the palette for $79.00 + tax.  That works out to $7.90/eyeshadow with a free palette!   For comparisons sake – eyeshadow pans at MAC are $14.00CAD/each and that isn’t even taking into account that you have to buy the palette and you get less product….

Freedom System eyeshadowFreedom System Eyeshadow - square

Each palette has small magnets in all four corners of the lid as well as the palette itself.  So it easily pulls into place when you are closing up your palette.  You can also stack palettes and use only one lid on top.

Both swatches were taken in natural light with no flash.

What I love:

  • The amount of each product in each pan is enormous.  From what I’ve noticed, not all pans are the same – it seems to vary depending on the texture of the shade.  My matte shadows are each 2.3g and my others vary from 2.5g up to 3.5g.
  • Their Freedom system of palettes is amazing and is to my knowledge the most flexible and customizable option available to beauty addicts and makeup artists alike.  I love how with the magnets on each corner, you can actually stack all of your palettes together and simply put a lid on the top one.  I’m excited to grow my Inglot collection!
  • Their products actually GO ON SALE!  I’m so used to MAC Cosmetics where in Canada you will never see a sale – EVER.  (Residents in the United States luck out with the Cosmetic Clearance Centres available where all of the limited edition left over products go to die and be sold at discount – I WISH.)  But I was thrilled when I started building my palette and the sales associate was running off numbers and then used the phrase “except, it will be even cheaper right now because we have a promotion on these palettes.”  *Angels sing* I couldn’t believe it, a promotion!
  • Rainbow eyeshadows!  They have a line of rainbow eyeshadow pans that actually have 3 shades of the same colour in one palette pan. http://inglotcosmetics.com/rainbow.eye.shadow/products/657/793
  •  Their collection is all encompassing.  They cover everything from eyes, lips, face, brushes, accessories and even a new nail lacquer line which is described as “breathable Nail Enamel ensuring better health care for nails whilst enhancing their beauty.”  It is one of the many things on my “next time” list.
  • Their selection of pigments was huge compared to MAC cosmetics.  They had a much larger range of colours (it would be comparable to the collection available at MAC pro stores, but I think even then MAC would fall short, Inglot just has soooo many.)

What I hate:

  • The shadows aren’t named, only numbered.  I like being able to use a name when talking eyeshadow colours, rather than “I used number 207 through my crease…”  But that might just me being used to a certain way.  I guess I figure I am more likely to remember the name of something rather than a catalogue of numbers.  (Makeup Forever products are the same way – numbered.)
  • There isn’t an easy lip to be able to get your product out of the pans and move them around if you like.  You need to use something like the blade of an exacto knife to pop out each shadow from the palette.  Not a huge deal, but slightly inconvenient if you are in a hurry.
  • Unlike at MAC, they don’t offer samples of their loose pigmented eyeshadows.  You can try them all in store, but if you want to check it out with your makeup from home, you will have to buy it.
  • Unfortunately, their online shop doesn’t allow for shipment to Canada.  They have full sites for which you can purchase product in the US, Australia, UK, Netherlands, South Africa and Finland.  I will unfortunately have to wait until my next visit to Montreal.
I wanted to do a makeup look using these new shadows so you could all see them in action.  And rather than doing a neutral everyday look, I ended up doing something dramatic…surprise surprise.  Regardless, I hope you enjoy this look.  I think it is fun for a night out or special occasion.  I would avoid wearing it to work.  😛

For this look, I used #48 all over my lid, #72 as my darker outer eye shade #46 to highlight and #482 to do a nice dark line under my lower lashes.

The pigmentation and quality of these shadows was lovely (I did use an eyeshadow primer).  They were very easy to blend together and I had no issue getting the colour payoff I was looking for.

For the rest of my look, I used the following:

Lashes – Ardell’s Demi Wispies False Lashes and Too Faced lashGASM mascara on my bottom lashes

Liner – Maybelline Master Precise Felt Tip Liquid Liner in Black on my lids and Blacktrack Fluidline by MAC on my waterline.

Lips – Clinique’s Longlast Lipstick in Heather Moon

Cheeks – Margin blush by MAC

Brows – Mystery Eyeshadow by MAC to fill in my brows

The verdict: The shadows were long lasting and didn’t crease or budge after several hours of wear.  For the price, I see this brand has incredible value and a giant range of shades.  I will be visiting Inglot upon my next visit to Montreal for sure in order to try out some of their other raved about products.

I hope you found this post useful.  Do you own any Inglot products already?  If so, what are your favourites??

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled the next time you are near an Inglot – or maybe on your next vacation.  You won’t regret it!
