Three Looks, One Palette

Hello all! Here we go with the makeup posts. I thought it would be fun to showcase a particular eye shadow palette and give three different options for looks from it. I’ve seen YouTubers do this and I love watching those kinds of videos so I wanted to do it too. One YouTuber in particular that I like to watch is Nicole Quinn. She’s my favorite and I recommend you check her out if you enjoy that type of thing too.

The palette I’m going to be using is the Profusion Temptress palette. I got it at Target for only $10! It is a wonderful palette, definitely good quality for such an affordable price.

 

 

So the fist look looks like this:

 

 

Super simple. I used the shades Courage, Ember, Enigma and Charm to create this look. This is a look I do often because it’s really easy but also packs a punch. In other words it looks like I did a lot but I didn’t. I put Courage in my crease as my transition shade, Ember went all over my lid and Enigma went on the lower lash line. I highlighted my brow bone and inner eye corner with Charm and that’s it! So easy.

The second look is a little bolder and I absolutely love it.

 

I used the shades Courage, Champ, Thunder, Rocker and Charm. I used Courage in my crease as my transition shade, then I layered Champ on top of that. I used Thunder all over the lid, which is the perfect shade to wear to an Oklahoma Thunder game. On the bottom lash line I used Champ and Rocker, I blended them together with a Morphe pencil brush. I highlighted my brow bone and inner corner with Charm.

The third look was a little more out of my comfort zone.

I don’t normally adorn my eyes with silvers and purples but I actually really like how this look turned out. I will say it looks a lot better in person than it does in pictures. I used the shades Courage, Alchemy, Shell, Vinyl, Hard Rock and Sorcery. I used Courage in my crease, Vinyl on the outer corner, Hard rock on the center of my lid and Sorcery on the inner corner. On the bottom lash line I used Alchemy and Shell.

The second look is more my speed when it comes to makeup. I love doing dark, bold and smokey looks. I had a lot of fun doing this and I can’t wait to do more in the future! Which look is your favorite?

Summer Makeup Looks

It’s that time of year! Well at least here in the southern part of the states it is. It is warm outside and I gotta tell you I have a love/hate relationship with summer. On the one hand, I get to wear shorts and sandals, the boys can play outside and the nights are pleasant. On the other hand it’s hot. I absolutely hate feeling hot and sticky. It puts me in a bad mood.

Summer makeup looks are fun though. I like to try to incorporate bright, lush colors in my eye shadow with vibrant pink and peach blush. It’s the season to look youthful and glowy. Your skin gets some sun and it just pulls it all together. Here are a few makeup looks I came up with.

I used my Jaclyn Hill by Morphe palette for this look. It was super simple to do and I just love how it turned out. I used the shades M.E.F.O and Pooter in my crease. On the lid I used Diva and Queen. And on the outer corner I mixed Buns and Chip. I highlighted my inner corner and brow bone with Beam and on the lower lash line I mixed Enchanted, M.E.F.O. and Pooter. I highlighted my cheeks with the Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder in the shade Afterglow and on the lips I used Sinful Cinnamon by Buxom with Buttercup cream lipstick by Gerard Cosmetics over top.

For my second look I went with a more colorful look.

I used my Urban Decay Born to Run palette. I used the shades Weekender and Riff in my crease with a fluffy blending brush. I used the shade Radio all over the lid and a mix of Riff, Baja and Still Shot on the lower lash line.

I highlighted my brow bone and cheeks with she shade Pearl in the Milani Stellar Lights Rose Glow highlighting palette. I was beaming y’all. And for the lip I used the lipstick Rodeo Drive by Gerard Cosmetics topped with the gloss Party Starter by Bare Minerals.

For my final look I wanted to continue the colorful theme.

I used my Jaclyn Hill palette again for this look. I used the shades Silk Cream and Pukey in the crease. Queen in the inner corner and Pool Party and Jada on the lid. With Beam on the brow bone and inner corner highlight. I used Jada on the lower lash line to finish off the eye look. I use Milani lipstick in the color Matte Kiss and topped it with Party Starter lip gloss by Bare Minerals. I used the same Milani highlight in Pearl.

I had so much fun with these looks and I hope you enjoyed them as well! If you recreate any of these post a photo! I’d love to see them.

Spring Makeup Looks!

Spring is in the air and I am so excited about it! For me, spring is a time of rejuvenation, a time to start fresh and clean. The air is new and everything is growing. It’s a great time to be outside in the sunshine.

For makeup looks and fashion in the spring there is a heavy emphasis on pastel colors so that’s the vibe I worked with to create these looks. I wanted something light and bright. Something that was colorful and whimsical but also soft. This is what I came up with:

 

The first look is a peachy look. I don’t normally do colors like this because I feel like they wash me out but it was fun to try something new. I used my Profusion Festival palette, pictured below.

 

It was only $12 at Target. It’s such a fun palette and it’ll be great for the summer time as well.

The next look I went with a pinky, purple look. I was going for just a wash of color, just something whimsical and girly.

 

 

I absolutely loved how this look turned out. It’s so cute and fun, I will definitely be wearing this a lot this spring. I used my Profusion Wanderlust palette to achieve this look.

 

This palette I also got at Target for $10. I really love Profusion’s makeup. I have tried their eye shadows, contour shades, highlights and lipsticks and have not been disappointed yet. Good quality for an extremely affordable price.

I used the Festival palette once again. I wanted just a pop of color and I thought mint was a great color for spring! This look would also be fun for summer.

 

When Cillian saw me after I had done my hair and makeup he said, “Mama! You look beautiful!” It melted my heart. He’s so sweet.

For the face I used: 

As you can tell I am very into my Profusion products. 

I hope you like these looks, which one is your favorite? Happy spring everyone!

Fall Makeup Looks!

This isn’t a post I normally do but I thought it would be fun. I love makeup and I have so many eye shadow palettes it would be a crime to not show them off.

Fall is my favorite time for makeup because of all the dark colors. I prefer to wear heavier makeup than light so the fall and winter are the best time for that. Dark makeup shows up better against my paler, winter skin. In the colder months I also don’t have to worry about sweating it off and pairing a dark lip with dark eye shadows is totally acceptable. Here are a few looks and the products I used to achieve them.

For my face I use the same products every time so here I have my Mary Kay primer, Milani Conceal and Perfect foundation and Maybelline Fit me. I combine the two just because I have so much foundation I need to use it all before it goes bad. Maybelline fit me concealer, Nyx setting powder for my eye lids and the Maybelline fit me powder to set my face. I’m not sure what brand the eyebrow duo is but the brush is Milani. The Brow Gal clear brow gel and my Morphe blush and bronzer palettes. I like using palettes when it comes to blush and bronzers because you never know what shade you’ll need and it’s just helpful to have a bunch of colors to choose from. The highlighter is Milani in Day Glow, I believe.

Left: Morphe 9B bronzer palette, right: Morphe 9N blush palette. (I don’t believe they sell these anymore.)

The first look is an olive green look:

 

 

I paired it with a dark lip but I ended up taking it off after taking the pictures. I just don’t like how messy a dark lips gets after meals or drinking stuff or having a baby grab your face. (Please excuse my puffy, early morning face. I was trying to get all this done before the boys woke up.)

For the eyes I used my Morphe 35M Boss Mood palette that I got for my birthday. Shout out to Marissa for getting it for me. I used the three shades in the top right corner, the black at the bottom right corner and the lightest shade in the top left corner to get this look. I used my Morphe brushes, of course.

 

For the lip I used Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in Bittersweet and Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie gloss in City Slicker. I think dark lips are so edgy and vampy I just don’t have the patience for them anymore. Haha.

And as always I set everything with my Mario Bedescu facial spray. It’s not the best setting spray, I would recommend using a back up or just a different one, I just haven’t run out yet so I’m going to continue to use it until I do.

The second look is vibrant and orange, like the leaves right now:

 

I did a more neutral lip this time. I didn’t want to take anything away from this eye look, I love it so much.

 

I used my Jaclyn Hill by Morphe palette for this look as well as a couple shades from the previous palette.

 

I used my favorite lipstick of all time, the Buxom lipstick in Sinful Cinnamon. I topped it with the Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie gloss in Party Starter.

I finished off with this setting spray. There’s not much left, I do like this setting spray. This day I had a lot to do so I had to make sure my makeup wasn’t going anywhere.

The third look is a yellow little number:

I loved this look, a beautiful daytime yellow, smokey eye.

I used my Hard Candy palette, Anastasia Subculture palette and my custom Z Palette.

I used the yellow shades in all the palettes and the brown in the Subculture palette. Super easy look.

For foundation I used this Makeup Forever Velvet foundation. This is the second time I’ve ever used it and it didn’t hold very well throughout the day. I’ll still use it because it was pretty pricey for such a small bottle but oily faces beware. I used the NYX eyebrow pen for my brows, not my favorite way to fill them in but it’s what I had.

And for the lips I used the Milani lipstick in Bahama Beige. This looked nice when I fist applied it then it formed a really gross white line on the inside of my lips and I could not rub it off. I’m going to try it with a gloss on top of it next time but if that doesn’t help I’m throwing it away.

Well there are a few looks you could try if you’re into makeup like me. I hope you got some ideas and if you like this kind of thing I could do more. I really love to play with makeup and this post was a great excuse for me to dip into some makeup I haven’t tried in a while. Which was your favorite look? Let me know!
