We're Pushing Petals Today with The FOTD!

Hey Beauties,
   So  my newest FOTD is using Wet N Wild's 8 Pan Palette in Petal Pusher. Such pretty purple look.... Keep reading to see how I did it...

Ignore the Casey Anthony Trail in on the tv

Close up of the eyes...

We're pushing petals...

Ugh.. LOL!

Full duckface...

And here's how I did this... I am making a video on this too...

FACE:
  • I primed with elf's Mineral Infused Face Primer
  • I concealed with elf's Tone Correcting Concealer in Light Beige
  • I applied Revlon ColorStay Foundation (Custom mixed) in 180 & 200 
  • I set everything with elf's Complexion Perfection
CHEEKS:
  • I applied elf's Studio Blush in Pink Passion on apples of the cheeks
  • I highlighted today with elf's Shimmer Facial Whip in Spotlight
EYES:
  • I primed my eyelid using elf's Eyelid Primer all over the lid to the browbone
  • I USED THE LEFT SIDE OF THE Petal Pusher Palette so correspond with that...
  • I applied the 'eyelid' color all over the lid to the crease
  • I then applied the 'crease' color in the crease and the outer V, and then Blended it out
  • Next, I used the 'definer' shade to define the outer V and blend lightly.
  • Then, I used the 'browbone' color underneath the arch of the eyebrow and on the tearducts.
  • I then lined the out half of the upper lashes using the black cream eyeliner from the Physician's Formula Glam Green Eyes Shimmer Eye Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Cream Liners (Stack of 3)
  • On the lower lash line I used Milani's Liquif'Eye in black on the outer half of the waterline
  • I then smudged the 'crease' color on the outer half of the lower lashes
  • I then curled and applied mascara to the lashes.
Lips:
  •  I applied CG Outlast Lipstain #425
  • And topped that with NYC lipstick in Glam.
And that's it ladies... I am making the video here shortly and will hopefully upload today and I will let you know...

FOTD!! In the Comfort Zone today :)!!!!

Comfort Zone Wet N Wild... WoooHOooooOOoo

I swear I have a duckface...

Eyes Tell it All...

Lalalala...Comfortable yet???
Hey Beauties,
Today's FOTD is from Wet N Wild's Comfort Zone 8 Pan Color Icon Palette. I'm loving this sorta antiquey looking goldish eye... It's from the LEFT side of the Comfort Zone...

FACE:
  • I started off with Hard Candy Sheer Envy Face Primer
  • elf's Tone Correcting Concealer in Light Beige under the eyes and on any redness.
  • Next, I applied Rimmel's Lasting Finish Foundation in True Ivory (Applied with elf's Powder Brush)
  • I set everything with Hard Candy's Welcome Matte powder (Dusted on with elf's Total Face Brush)
CHEEKS:
  • I applied Milani's Baked Blush in Dolce on the apples of my cheeks (Applied with elf's Powder Blush)
  • I contoured with NYC Sun 2 Sun in Bronze Gold (Used elf's Blending and Bronzing Brush)
EYES:
  • I started out by applying elf's Eyelid Primer all over the lid.
  • AS I STATED: I USED THE LEFT SIDE OF THE COMFORT ZONE PALETTE... So follow this as that side ONLY
  • All over the lid I applied the 'eyelid' color (Applied with elf's Professional Eyeshadow Brush)
  • Next I took the 'crease' color and BLENDED BLENDED BLENDED it into my crease and outer V (Applied with elf's Professional Crease Brush then blended using elf's Blending Brush)
  • Then I applied the 'definer' color in the outer V and BLEND BLEND BLEND on the outer V and the crease slightly. (Applied using elf's Eye Blending Brush)
  • Lastly, I used the 'browbone' under the brow, and the inner tear duct. (Using elf's Eyeliner Brush)
  • I tightlined with elf's Cream Liner in Black
  • On the lower lid, I smudged the 'eyelid' color halfway underneath the lashes (Applied using elf's Smudge Brush)
  • I waterlined using Milani Liquif'Eye in Black
  • I filled my brows using elf's Eyebrow Kit in Dark
  • Curl and applied mascara (CG LashBlast Length)
LIPS:
  • I applied elf's Lip Liner and Blender in Natural all over the lips and blended out
  • Then I topped it off with elf's Shimmer Gloss in Pink
And that's it... I hope you like this look... and once again, the eyelid color in this side of the palette is said to be a dupe for Midnight Cowboy from Urban Decay... Which I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!

Did I Find my Midnight Cowboy Dupe???

So, I've been on this HUNT for a dupe for Urban Decay's Midnight Cowboy & Midnight Cowboy Rides Again... So I bought some things at Walgreens and here they are...

Wet N Wild Comfort Zone 8 Pan Palette

So, the eyelid color 2nd from the left on the bottom (of this swatch) is supposed to be a Midnight Cowboy Dupe

Ok, I love this eyeliner from Milani. This is the Liquif'Eye Metallic Eyeliner in Black

Milani Liquif'Eye in Aqua (Dupe for Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On in Electric or Flipside depending on how you layer it)

Swatches... FYI Would not remove until I used Makeup Remover

This maybe my fave new eyeshadow... Looks a lot like Midnight Cowboy, but with more controllable glitter

Milani Runway Eyes #05 Girls Luv Pink (and I Luv This Color)

Swatched, no primer, no base... I LUV this color...
Ok, so it may not be an exact dupe, but I cannot say that I do not love Milani's Girls Luv Pink... It's pretty, shimmery, pink, and very very similar to Midnight Cowboy at least in my opinion. What do you think?

Review of Rimmel Lasting Foundation!!! Brides, Women, Anyone who Wants to Feel Beautiful!!!

This is after... wait for it...

How many hours have I worn this foundation... In the Florida heat and humidity???

Wanna know? Read my review...
OK, so this weekend I decided I would put my new Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation (I use the color 103 True Ivory) to the ultimate test! So, I applied my makeup you see above at 1030am Saturday morning, went to a surprise birthday party, and took this picture when I got home at... 730pm Saturday night.  That's right... 9 hours later.. and my foundation... AMAZING!
 Now, let me bring some of you up to speed here. It's summertime here in Sunny Central Florida, meaning at 1030 in the morning, its a whopping 85 degrees with 90% humidity, it rains everyday at about 5 which proceeding that means it about 110 degrees with 100% humidity. The surprise party I went to... OUTSIDE... let me tell you... HOT doesn't even begin to describe it. So, moving on... at 730ish when I got home... I figured I will snap a pic, see what my foundation looks like... and I was so surprised... It hardly even budged, didn't melt or cake, and most off looked flawless...

So I WILL be wearing this at my wedding... thank you emilynoel83 (if you aren't following her on youtube and elsewhere, so do it... she's AMAziNG) for the recommendation....
