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?!

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?

Dramatic Birthday Makeup


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:

green and brown eye makeup

*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.

metallic eye makeup

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:

*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.

  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)

How to get 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 Makeup Forever HD Foundation in shade #118 topped with MAC’s Studio Careblend Pressed Powder in shade Light Plus.

Cheeks > Margin Blush by MAC Cosmetics

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.

A Look for Spring

soft spring updo for long hair

My husband and I had a date night planned last night for a simple dinner out.  I felt like doing some experimenting with both my hair and makeup.  I came up with this very soft and feminine look that I think is perfect for Spring.

spring makeup and hair

As I sat down at my vanity I thought pastels would be a nice change for my eyeshadows and promptly realized my options were limited.  So I pulled out my Sweet Dreams Palette by Too Faced and found a couple of shades there that would do the trick.

Sweet Dreams Palette swatches and review

The four shades I used for this look are In the Buff, Peach Fuzz, Cut the Cake and Cop a Teal – which you can see on my swatches below:

swatches of Too Faced eyeshadowsToo Faced eyeshadow swatchesToo Faced Sweet Dreams Palette - review and swatches

How to get this look for your eyes:

peach and purple eye makeup

  1. Start out by filling in your eyebrows so you can see the area you are working with.  I used Mystery eyeshadow by MAC Cosmetics.
  2. Prime your lid all the way up to your brow bone.  I used Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion.
  3. Dust Peach Fuzz eyeshadow all across your lids.  (Any nice peachy shade will work for this step.  Something like Naked Lunch by MAC would work.)
  4. Then, take Cut the Cake eyeshadow and blend this shade through your crease and at the outer edge of your eyes.  (Again, any soft lilacy purple will do the trick here.)
  5. Line your upper lash line and waterline with a black liner.  I used Blacktrack Fluidline by MAC.
  6. Take a nice dark contrasting colour to smudge into your lower lashes.  I used Cop a Teal for this step.
  7. Highlight your brow bone and very inner corner of your eye with a soft, sheer white shade.  I used In the Buff eyeshadow for this.
  8. Finish with Mascara on both your upper and bottom lashes.  I used Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara.

This really does create a soft and subtle makeup look with just enough colour to keep me sane.  🙂  There is nothing overpowering about this look and is something that would work for anyone, no matter how you feel about bold colours.

To complete my look, I used the following:

For my Skin > Erase Paste by benefit as my under-eye concealer, Makeup Forever HD Foundation in shade #118, topped with MAC’s Studio Careblend Pressed Powder in shade “Light Plus”

For my cheeks > Sweet Pink blush by Too Faced

For my lips > Buxom lips bareEscentuals in shade “Leslie”

For the hair I wanted to try out a look that was shown off recently by Brittany and Amber over at Makeup Geek.  They put up a complete picture tutorial on how to create this look.  You can find it here.

Curved Dutch Braid

This was my first time trying this look out on myself and I think it turned out okay for my first attempt.  Because I don’t have bangs but I didn’t want my face completely bare, I decided to leave out a couple of small strands to curl so I could still have a soft frame around my face.

updo for long hair

I am one of those people that has had long hair their entire life and I like to wear it down 99% of the time because it is how I feel “pretty”.  I’ve never liked how I look with my hair pulled back in a pony tail or into a bun.  But with a soft messy updo like this, I can keep my hair up and off my neck (which is amazing for hot days outside) but still feel pretty and feminine.

How about you?  What is your favourite makeup look this Spring?  How do you deal with your hair in the heat?

Make Yourself Up with MAC

Aquadisiac, Bitter, Steamy and Freshwater eyeshadows in a palette

After so much positive feedback in regards to my post about my MAC Pro Palette, I figured it was definitely time to share some of my other MAC eyeshadows.  So I decided to post about another palette of mine that I have compiled over the last two years.  As you can see, it has a wide range of colour, but a lot of them are very flexible and work well with neutrals as well as other mid-tone shades or even brights.

Jewel Tone Eyeshadow

I also want to talk about the MAC palettes a little bit and make sure people know how the palettes work with MAC.  From any MAC store (not available at counters at the Bay) you can buy the empty palettes in sizes of either 2, 4 or 15 and then you can buy the refill pans that are labelled on the back and magnetized on the bottom so they don’t fall out.  They are less expensive than purchasing the little shadow pot of each colour too.  The only thing is, you can’t recycle them for the “Back to MAC Program”.  This Back to MAC program allows you to trade in 6 empties for one new product (either a lip stick or an eyeshadow).  So the extra money you spend on the pots does have a little reward, but much much later once you have used up the entire product (unless you melt them out and put them in either a MAC palette or a Z Palette).   But, here is the thing.  The value of the “free” product is still less than the money saved by purchasing the palettes and pans.  Not to mention, they are more convenient when all in a palette together as opposed to having a 45 individual eyeshadows mixed together in a pile, taking up a huge amount of space.

MAC Eyeshadow Palette

So, let me break this down for those people cruching numbers in their heads right now and seeing if I am right.

Let’s say we were going to buy 15 individual eyeshadows.  They are now $18.00 each (CAD).  You are looking at $270.00.

Let’s say we were going to buy a palette to hold 15 shadows as well as 15 eyeshadow pans.  The pans are $14.00 each and the palette itself is $17.00.  So it works out to a total of $227.00.

So for an extra $43 you get the privilege of getting “free” products through the recycling program.  So with 15 colours, you would eventually earn 2 free eyeshadows.  But to benefit from this, you would actually need to use them until their is nothing left, or melt out the pans and turn in the plastic.  Seems like a lot of extra work if you ask me.  I would rather take my $43 and go buy my extra eyeshadow or lipstick when it’s convenient.  Okay – so that is my rant. I love the palettes and refill pans.  The magnets are amazing and they never fall out.  Not to mention, they are super easy to swap around if you are travelling and want to change up what colours you are taking with you.

But anyways, let’s take a look at the actual shades:

Satellite Dreams, Parfait Amour, Humid, Swimming, Brill, Pink Venus, Cranberry, Club, Steamy, Bitter, Shale, Blackberry, Deep Truth, Freshwater, Aquadisiac

***Please note that all of these colours are currently available with the exception of “Brill” it is an old limited edition shade from a MAC collection in 2002.***

I would say this is the palette I use the most out of my MAC collection.  I have another full palette of neutrals that I haven’t featured on Eyemasq yet that does get a fair bit of use.  But I find the above shades let me have some fun with rich jewel toned colours without going completely over the top with the colours in my MAC Pro Palette.

*Please also note that I used Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, Blacktrack Fluidline by MAC for eyeliner, Unchanging MAC Pro Longwear Lipcolour, Sephora Triple Action Mascara, Dollymix Blush by MAC as well as Mystery Eyeshadow by MAC to fill in my brows.  I am also wearing Ardell False Lashes in #105.*

For another one of my favorite looks from these shades, which is really simple, check out my look “Plum Fun” which features both Shale and Blackberry eyeshadows from this palette.

I hope I’ve convinced you to start your very own MAC palette if you don’t already have one.  I started with 4 colours and never looked back!

All About Eyes Palette

Drugstore Eyeshadows

 

I’m sure you all can tell by now that I am a makeup addict.  This addiction usually results in many MAC and Sephora purchases.  But every once in a while the draw of the inexpensive drugstore product calls to me as I am sneaking through…just trying to get one thing and get out!  It isn’t my fault…it herds you right through the cosmetic section before you can even get to the other section of the store.

Drugstore Eyeshadow Palette

This “All About Eyes” Palette by Quo was available at Shoppers Drug Mart  for a whopping $20 just prior to the holidays.  You can’t even get two MAC eyeshadows for that price…so I figured why not?!

Let’s take a look and see what these look like.

Drugstore Eyeshadow Palette

For reference sake, seeing as these colours don’t have names.  Let’s number them like this:

Top Row: 1,2,3,4,5

Bottom Row: 6,7,8,9,10

Drugstore Eyeshadows

6, 1, 2, 3, and 4 underneath

7,8,9,10 and 5 underneath

Colours always seem to swatch nicely on the back of your hand, but that doesn’t always mean it will be nice to work with on your eye.  So I decided a proper review of this eyeshadow also needed a look from these shades.

*Please also note that I used Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, Blacktrack Fluidline by MAC for eyeliner, Unchanging MAC Pro Longwear Lipcolour, Sephora Triple Action Mascara, Margin Blush by MAC as well as Mystery Eyeshadow by MAC to fill in my brows.*

My look ended up looking a lot like my “Zero Gravity Look” but there was a clear difference in the quality of product and ease of use.  When it comes to eyeshadow, I truly believe you get what you pay for.

What I noticed about these eyeshadows:

  • I had to keep going back for more to get the coverage and colour pigmentation I wanted.  Unlike with MAC or Urban Decay, you aren’t just applying once.  The colours also don’t layer nicely if you want to lighten one up by using a different shade on top – it was a nightmare trying to get the pigments to show when layering.
  • Fantastic large mirror.  It is actually functional as a mirror, rather than the tiny shard that you can’t see anything in that comes with most palettes.
  • Useless foam brushes – waste of space!  I would’ve rather seen a q-tip!
  • All in all, I think it is an okay deal for $20.  Even if I end up only using 2 of these colours, it will still be worth the money.  I wouldn’t however go out of my way to buy one of their larger palettes though.  And given my collection of eyeshadow, I don’t imagine I will be reaching for this set anytime soon.
  • I would recommend these Quo eyeshadows for if you plan to do either a monolithic eye (only one eyeshadow colour) or a standard two-toned eye.  If you try to do too much blending or funky layering, you won’t end up noticing the extra work in the finished look at all.

I hope you found this useful!

Shann
