Makeup, fashion, and me.

Archive for the ‘eye shadow’ Category

With 2010 coming you want to look fresh and ready for a new start. So say goodbye to last years smoky eyes and orange lips, and get ready for the new looks of the future!

Strong brows.

This picture shows strong brows perfectly, and it even shows metallic eyes too!

Over plucked brows are just so blah! The look now? Think and framing.  To get perfect brows take a pencil and line it up with were your eyes stop, that is were your brow should end. Then look straight forward and line a pencil up to the end of your pupil, that is were your brow should curve. After that just fade out to a tip. Always remember to only pick stray hairs on the bottom of your brow, never the top.

Metallic eyes.

You don't have to make your metallic eyes this crazy to have them be fabulous.

The cutest new look for eyes right now is all in the metal. If you have darker skin choose a  deep gold or copper, but if you have a lighter skin tone go for silver or light  gold. One look that I like to use is a light silver on my lids and a deep gold on my crease. It makes my eyes pop!

Plum lips.

Plum lips are just oh so glamorous!

Say goodbye to boring nude and pink lips, because plum is the new thing. It’s so surprising and flattering that it will turn heads (don’t worry, I mean in a good way!). If your afraid to try it out wear it to a party first. After you see everyone’s reactions you can decide if you want to wear your purple lipstick again, or not.

Bronzed cheeks.

Rihanna looks healthy, and beautiful with her bronzed cheeks.

Bronzed, sun-kissed cheeks are all the rage with winter. Choose a shimmery one 2 shades darker then your natural skin tone to keep from looking like a clown. To apply it right sweep it up from the side of your nose up to the sides of your cheek bones.

So look absolutely stunning this new year, with these fabulous new looks.


Feeling like you need a pretty boost? Well I have a tip that makes your lips bigger and your eyes bigger in under 10 seconds

Just some eyeshadow here and there, and bam, you could be a model!

Just take out some gold or white eyeshadow (depending on your skin tone, if your lighter skinned go for white eyeshadow, if your skin is darker go for gold), and pat a little on your cupids bow (that part of your top lip that dips down) and the inner corners of each eye, so its touching the sides of your nose. Gasp, when did a supermodel get here! 😉

I love halloween but since I know how hard it can be to choose and how halloween tends too sneak up on you (it’s in 1 day!) I think that all you procrastinating ladies nead a break, and here it is. Oh and all these fabulous costumes? You can make them just with things you already own!

  1. Be a hippy!

Be a chic hippy, not a goof.

Take your hair and put it into a super high side ponytail, you can add a bandana if you like. Then grap any tie die shirt you have on hand (or you can make one with friends, so fun and goofy!)  add a pair of low cut  boyfriend jeans, belt them with a scarf, add a big old smile and bam, hippy alert!

      2. Be a vampire!

This picture shows the leading charcater on yet another vampire show, "vampire diaries".

With all this twilight craze vampires are H.O.T. this year, no wonder since everyone in those movies is insanely cute! But back to the point just add some thick black liner, black tights and a black or jean skirt, any pretty old top, and your a fabulous vampire.

       3. Be a spy!

Just because it's cute.

Dress in all black, and some killer high heels really complete it. Add some glam 50’s  marilyn monroe makeup wouldn’t go amis either!

So don’t look like you just threw something together last minute, look glam and chic, even if you only made your costume the day  before halloween!

Want a great look for day and night? Try golden lined eyes.

It instantly brightens and makes your eyes bigger, but only if you do it right.


  1. First of all find a goldener eyeliner or gold eyeshadow.
  2. If it’s eyeshadow, learn how to turn it it into eyeliner.
  3. Next line you top lids in a thick line that touches your lashes.
  4. Bring the pencil down and line your inner corners, smudging under your eyes.


  1. Follow the first 4 steps.
  2. Take a Burgundy and smudge it into your crease and bring up under your brow bone.
  3. Add mascara.

This look is perfect for any party, or just hanging out over the weekend.

Tada, perfect halloween idea!

I have tons of eyeshadow, but only one eyeliner. It was really annoying because sometimes I just want maybe blue eyeliner,

Turn your gold eyeshadow into gold eyeliner!

or even better gold! But I didn’t want to buy an eyeliner for every time I have a different whim. So how did I fix that? A little water of course!

No didn’t drink the water, I mixed it! Just put a little dab of water on your hand, a little bit of eyeshadow, then you can either use an angle brush (if you’re lucky enough to have one!) or a colored pencil to apply to your eyelids. Don’t apply it in one big stroke though, use a bunch of short strokes to make it all the way across your lid. Just remember not to apply to your inner lids because it’s really not meant to be there, and can irritate.

So make the old, wonderfully new!

It’s hard to stay summary in the fall. You can’t wear your cute shorts, your super flattering T’s, and your gorgeous sandals, long gone. But what you can still do is wear gold eyeshadow, and after looking these pictures, staying summary isn’t the only reason you’ll want to wear it.

Rihanna looks great, but you dont have to be a pop star to look good in gold eyeshadow.
