Copper Look (Looks like Gold)

Hey so todays post is not a pictorial but it is a post on what products I used to create this look. I got some new products also, so I will post it.


Face & Lips:
  • Nivea Cremé
  • CoverGirl Oil Control Anti-Luisance Foundation in the shade Soft Honey.
  • NYX's Concealer Stick in the shade Green to cover redness around my blemishes.
  • Revlon's Nearly Naked Pressed Powder in the shade Light. I only dusted powder on my T-Zone.
  • Nars Montego Bay Pure Matte Lipstick.
Cheeks:
  • Contouring I used Milani's Face Powder in Dark Tan
  • Blush I used VS blush. I do not remember name, but a rosy pink blush with subtle shimmer will do.
  • Highlighter I used Benefit's Whats Up Highlighter Stick
Brows & Eyes:
  • Brun from Mac for eyebrows, using an angled brow brush
  • UD's Primer Potion Original. 
  • Since I used a loose shimmer powder, I did one eye at a time. The reason for this is because the primer needs to be nice and wet so it can be used as a base for the powder. I used Makeup Forever Star Powder in 922, like a copper color.
  • The powder goes all over the lid and into the crease. I dab rather than slide the powder.
  • Then I went in with Buck from the Naked Palette and added this color over and in the crease, with a fluffy brush.
  • Then with Blackout from the Naked 2 I add this to the outer corner of the eye and blend out in the crease. I do not use alot of black, because it was more of a day look.
  • To highlight the brow bone I used Virgin from the Naked Palette and I also used it to highlight the tear duct area.
  • For the bottom lash line I used DarkHorse. I only added this shade in the outer part of my eye.
  • For top liner I used Maybelline's Gel Liner in Blackest Black.
  • Lashes are Ardell's Wispies Lashes.
  • On the waterline I used UD's 24/7 liner in the shade Zero.
  • For mascara I used Maybelline's Colossal Waterproof Mascara.
That was today's look, I hope this helped. I hope everyone is having a great week and I hope you all can recreate this look. I love you all. Do not forget to follow me on:

Peach Brown Makeup Pictorial :)

Today I did this look inspired from once again Nicole Guerriero! This is from her YouTube Channel also! Okay well you guys better be happy because I actually made a pictorial on all the steps, I did a full face pictorial! So happy it to share it with you guys, okay lets get started!
Picture #1:
1. I started obviously with a fresh clean face and moisturized it with Nivea Creme.
2. It does not show in the picture what I used but I used NYX Incredible Waterproof Concealer in the shade Green. This helps control the redness on your skin. I only used this where I have blemishes.
Picture #2:
1. I used CoverGirl Clean Oil Control Anti-Luisance Foundation in the shade Soft Honey (555).
2. I dabbed the foundation all over my skin and neck. I focus more on my cheeks and neck because that is where I have more discoloration. And I am a huge pusher about blending your foundation on your neck! Remember your neck has to match your face!
3. I use E.L.F's Powder Brush to blend in my foundation.
4. Just buff it out until everything is well blended and no streaks.
Picture #3:
1. I use Brun from MAC. I start by outlining the bottom of my brow with a Coastal Scents BR-B-S40 brush. 
2. Then with the same brush I outline the top of my brow. 
3. With my Make-Up For You Angle Brush I fill in my brow and blend it out with my Make-Up For You Eyebrow Comb. 
Picture #4:
1 & 2: I prime my lids and only my lids with Stila Prime Pot in the shade Taffy.
3. To prime the rest of my eye I use Urban Decay's Primer Potion in Original.
4. I then would add tape to make the eyeshadow a clean fnish but since I could not find any I used the back of a sticky note. Ghetto I know but who cares, improvise right?
Picture #5:
1. I used a Coastal Scents BR-B-S06 (fluffly) Brush. I used the Naked Palette, the shade Naked.
2. I added this over my crease, so I know where not to bring my eyeshadow too high.
3. Then I used BH Cosmetics 5th Editon 120 Color Palette Eyeshadow. I used a shimmery peach color, with a Make-Up For You Short Eye Shadow Brush.
4. I dabbed this color first so there will not be so much fall out. Once I dabbed it, I start gliding it all over my eyelid and up to my crease.
Picture #6:
1. I used a Coastal Scents BR-B-S06 (fluffly) Brush. I once again used BH Cosmetics 5th Editon 120 Color Palette Eyeshadow. The shade I used was a like a Taupe Brown, as you can tell its not very dark like the other browns.
2. I added this color right where I used the color Naked from before. So I add the color over and in the crease. I blend it out so there will not be a harsh line in and over the crease.
3. Then with the shade I used for my brows, Brun from MAC. I used Coastal Scents BR-B-S09 Brush. 
4. As you can see I added Brun under the brown color and blended it into the crease very softly. If you go in harsh, you will make a harsh line and it will take longer to blend.
Picture #7:
1. I then go back in with Coastal Scents BR-B-S06 (fluffly) Brush, with no additional product. I just blend everything out so no harsh lines are visible.
2. During our blending you lose some of the eyeshadow from your eyelid. That is normal, just go back in with the same brush as before and more of the eyeshadow.
3. I used Virgin from the Naked Palette with a Coastal Scents BR-B-S14 Brush.
4. I add this color on my brow bone to enhance it. If there is a harsh line between the highlight color and the browns just blend it out with a fluffy brush.
Picture #8:
1. Then with a Coastal Scents BR-B-S01 Brush to pick up the color DarkHorse from the Naked Palette.
2. I buffed out this color on my bottom lash line making it thick in the outer corner and then thin in the inner corner.
3.With the same brush, just clean off the other eyeshadow, I used Sin from the Naked Palette.
4. I added this color in the tear duct area bringing it up to the peach color and connecting to the DarkHorse color on my bottom lash line.
Picture #9:
1. NYX As If It's Your Natural Skin Concealer in the shade Beige.
2. So #3 is supposed to be #2 sorry. Outline with the concealer an upside down triangle.
3. So #2 is supposed to be #3 sorry. Fill in the upside down triangle with your concealer.
4. Do this to both sides. It will give the under part of your eyes a highlighted effect, while concealing your dark circles.
Picture #10:
1. Maybelline New York EyeStudio Gel Liner in Blackest Black with a Coastal Scents BR-B-S15 Brush.
2. I started by drawing out a line right where the eyeshadow ends. I traced that clean line.
3. This picture was supposed to show how I connect it to my lash line but that obviously it did not show that.
4. This shows how the finished eyeliner. Honestly to conquer the winged liner just takes practice. I'm not really good at it, I'm still trying to perfect it but I have gotten better. So just practice!
Picture #11:
1. CoverGirl Oil Control Anti-Luisance Foundation in the shade Buff Beige (525).
2. I dab the foundation right on top of the concealer. Be careful and do not add to much because then it will look TOO light under your eyes.
3.E.L.F's Small Stipple Brush.
4. Buff out the concealer and foundation all the way up to your temples, bridge of the nose, chin, and forehead. Blend it out really well because no one wants to see the line difference on your temples or cheeks. So blend!
Picture of #12:
1. Revlon's PhotoReady Translucent Pressed Powder with a Coastal Scents BR-B-S27 Brush.
2. I use this to mattefy the under parts of my eyes.
3. Revlon's PhotoReady Translucent Pressed Powder with a Make-Up For You Powder Brush.
4. I just add this powder all over my face for a matte finish.
Picture #13:
1. Milani Face Powder in the shade Dark Tan (07) with a Make-Up For You Contour Brush.
2. I add the bronzer under my cheekbones and a littler bit over my cheekbones. I blend it out towards my temples and forehead. I also add some on my neck.
3. This blush is from a Victoria's Secret Makeup Set, I do not know the name but a pink/peachy color blush will work. With a Make-Up For You Blush Brush. 
4. I just dusted some of that blush on my cheeks over the cheekbones and a tad on the apple of my cheeks. I'm a fan of blush but when I have blemishes I tend to not add so much because it makes my blemishes stand out.
Picture #14:
1. Benefit's Whats Up Highlighter
2. I add this on the high points of my cheek bones. I just do a line and blend it out with my finger until the line is no longer very visible.
3. I use again the same bronzer and use Make-Up For You Contour Brush.
4. My nose is already pointy so there really is no need for me contour but I do it to add some warmth to the middle of my face.
Picture #15:
1. Maybelline's The Mega Plush Volum Express WaterProof and The Colossal Volum Express WaterProof Mascara.
2. MAC's Mattene Lipstick in Night Violet.
3. I just added this all over my lips, I did not use a lip liner or lip brush, but I recommend to do use these for a more precise and clean look.
4. And we are done. I hope you all stuck around to read everything. This post is long because of all the pictures. But it did does not take long to do this look. I hope you all can re-create Nicole's look, she is Amazing!

Okay well I hope you all have a great day and have a fun and safe weekend. I hope I can do another post on Sunday or Monday. I do not know yet but I'll see. Okay well do not forget to follow me at:

Bronze Look Inspired By Nicole Guerriero

To start off, I want to give credit to Nicole Guerriero because I recreated her look from her YouTube Channel, which was called "Bronze/Dewy Tutorial". I give all the credit to her because she is such an inspiration so this is her look, I take no credit for it, other than me recreating it. Okay to start off I did this look one day for school and I really liked the way it turned out, I did not take pictures step-by-step because I always forget but I will that for my next post. Okay lets get started!



Face:
-I started by moisturizing my face with Nivea Creme. This lotion is very oily, so I only put this on my T-zone and I use very little lotion.
-Next I used Covergirl Clean Oil Control Anti-Luisance Foundation in the shade Soft Honey (555). I dab the foundation all over my face and to blend it out I use E.L.F's Powder Brush.
-To highlight my undereyes I use NYX As If It's Your Natural Skin Concealer in the shade Beige. I put this under my eyes like an upside down triangle and I fill in that triangle. Once I put the concealer, I add Covergirl Clean Oil Control Anti-Luisance Foundation in the shade Buff Beige (525), under my eyes. To blend it all together I use E.L.F's Small Stipple Brush. Make sure you blend the highlight all the way to your temples and always remember to blend everything out so there will not be any harsh lines. Whatever is left over on the brush I use it on the bridge of my nose, chin, and forehead.
-I then powder under my eyes with Covergirl Clean Oil Control Pressed Powder in the shade Buff Beige (525). I use Coastal Scents BR-B-S27 Brush.
-To powder all over my face I use Revlon Photoready Translucent Pressed Powder. I use Make-Up For You Powder Brush.
-To contour my face I use Milani's Face Powder in the shade Dark Tan (07). I use Make-Up For You Contour Brush. I start with a little bit of product first, I add this under and on my cheekbones. Once I have applied the desire amount, I add some on my temples and forehead. I also use this to contour my nose with a Make-Up For You Eye Contour Brush.
-For blush I used a light rosy pink blush, I do not know the name of it because it came in aVictoria Secret Set, so it does not say the name. I used a Make-Up For You Blush Brush. I added the blush until I had the desire amount and I added some all the way to my temples.
For highlight I use Benefit's Whats Up Highlighter. I just made a line on the high points of cheeks and blended it out with my ring finger until there was no longer a harsh line.
-When I'm done with my cheeks I go back with my Make-Up For You Powder Brush with no additional product and I just blend everything out so there will not be any harsh lines.

Eyes & Brows:
- With my eyebrows I first comb out my not so very visible brows with an eyebrow comb. For my eyebrows I use Brun form MAC. I use Coastal Scents BR-B-S40 brush to outline my brows and to fill it in I use Make-Up For You Angle Brow Brush.
-I start off my priming my eyes with Urban Decay's Primer Potion Original. I prime all over my lid and up to my brow bone. I also prime under my eyes.
-I first used Make-Up For You Short Eye Shadow Brush and applied the color Smog from the Naked Palette all over my eyelid and into my crease. I also brought it a little over my crease but not too high. All the eyeshadows are from the Naked Palette.
-Then I mixed Buck and Naked together and added that on the outer corner and blended it in my crease bringing up high. I used Coastal Scents BR-B-S06 Brush to apply the colors and to blend. You do not want to make this color really dark because we will go in with a darker shade to define the eyes.
-With a Coastal Scents BR-B-S09 Brush I added the color Darkhorse in the corner of the end of the eye and brought it up into the crease only halfway. Do not add to much because we want to keep it like a soft smokey eye.
-Then we go back and blend it out with a Coastal Scents BR-B-S06 Brush to blend the color Darkhorse in with the rest of the shades.
-To highlight the browbone I used Virgin and used a Make-Up For You Short Eye Shadow Brush. I also used Virgin to highlight the tear duct area. I just used my pinkie finger for this step.
-For the bottom lash line I used Darkhorse to smoke out the eye just a little with a Coastal Scents BR-B-S01 Brush. Blend out the color to create the smokey eye effect!
-For eyeliner I used Maybelline's New York EyeStudio Gel Liner in Blackest Black. I used a Coastal Scents BR-B-S15 Brush to line my eyes. I did a dramatic winged liner but if you feel that is not your style you can make it less dramatic. 
-In my waterline I used Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in the color Zero.
-For mascara I used Maybelline's The Colossal Volum Express Mascara in Waterproof.

Lips:
-I first moisturize my lips with chapstick.
-Second I use Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in the shade Montego Bay. I do not use a lipliner because currently I do not own one in this shade. 
-In the middle of my lips I use Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipstick in Blissful Berry (410). I dab this lipstick in the middle of my upper lip and glide it on in the middle of my bottom lip. Then I blend it out by rolling my lips together, this gives it a soft ombré look.
-To give it shine I use Jordana's Lip Out Loud Super Shiny Gloss in the shade 105. 

Well that is the end of my blog post! It seems like a lot of writing but I used details to help people out and give them an idea of how I did this look. I hope you can all recreate Nicole's look and check out her YouTube Channel, she has amazing tutorials! Her YouTube name is the same as the one I used in the beginning. Okay well I hope everyone had a great day and always keep your head up!

NYX Concealer Sticks Review

Hey guys! I know I have not posted a blog since July 3rd. I have no excuse, I just got really lazy and I really did not feel like posting anything. But today's post is going to be a review on two new products I bought from NYX. I really did not plan on buying these products but since I have not tried NYX brand yet, I decided these products would be perfect thing to buy. Then I thought about my Blog, so I said "This is going to be great to do a review about it in my blog!". So here I am today doing a review on NYX's Concealer Sticks! Let's get started!


(L to R)
NYX Incredible Waterproof Concealer Stick (Green) / NYX As If It's Your Natural Skin Concealer Stick (Beige)

So when I first saw the products I thought they were really cute. Since I have never bought NYX brand before I did not know what to expect. I have heard great stuff about this brand and I have read some nice reviews about it too. One thing that I have heard a lot about this brand, is that it is really cheap and affordable. When I first heard cheap and affordable I thought, "Oh well that means that it lacks pigmentation and it is not worth it". Those were my thoughts at first about this brand. Either way, I decided to buy them, yes I was doubting it but I said "Let me give it a chance". 

So the first I am going to talk about is the Natural Skin Concealer.


I bought this concealer so I can be able to highlight the under parts of my eyes and to conceal my dark circles. Lets begin with the price, each concealer stick is $3.99, it was not pricey for the product, I will admit that. When I first applied this, I was worried it was going to crease and go in between my fine lines. When I first wore it, it did crease but it was because I did not set it with powder. When I wore it with a foundation 2 shades lighter than my skin so I can highlight my under eyes, it had a beautiful highlighted effect! I set it with a light foundation powder. It did not crease at all throughout the day. I live in a place where in the summer it gets really hot, so I was worried that it was going to wear off throughout the day but it did not. I loved it when I paired it with my foundation and powder. It is not thick and it does not feel cakey on your skin. It does feel kind of dry on your skin but it is not horrible feeling. I would recommend this concealer to anyone who wants that highlight effect but I recommend to set it with powder, If not then it will crease.  

The next product I bought was the Waterproof Concealer in the color Green.


The shade of this product is Green. This is to conceal the redness on your face. It helps to balance the out the redness and make the redness less visible. Again the price for this was also $3.99, not pricey at all. I bought this concealer stick because I have a lot blemishes and redness around it so I wanted something that would help the concealer and foundation stick on better. When you first apply it, it comes out green almost to the point of white. I dabbed some on my redness, let me just say that it is very pigmented, so a little goes a long way. I blended it out and added concealer, it did seem to remove some of my redness. On the other side of my face I added concealer to the redness to see if the green concealer worked. To be honest it did conceal the redness, obviously you could tell that there was a blemish there but the redness was not as visible as the other side. I was happy with this product. Again, it does not feel cakey but it does feel kind of dry on your skin. Add concealer to blend in, next add your foundation and set it with powder. It should stay on all day. I have oily skin and it stayed all day.

This is all based on my opinions and I was not paid or sponsored to do a review on these products. I bought all these products with my own money and I decided to make a review on this. I am happy doing these reviews because I love helping others on what to buy. I love helping people so anything I can do to help, I am willing to do so. Okay well I hope you all enjoyed reading my blog post and do not forget that I have another blog, the link should be on this blog, this other blog is about my life. I decided to separate my life post from my makeup posts. Which means I should probably change the name of this blog hahaha my bad. Okay well I hope everyone has a great week and be safe, love you all and do not forget to follow me on:

-In the crease I used a darker shade pink. I used a contour eyeshadow brush. With this I added it into the crease and I blended it out until the eyeshadows are transitioning.
-On the eyelids I used a light wash of pink, using a padding motion to blend the colors together.
-Wet n Wild Gel Liner Fergie
- Maybellines Mascara:
  • Colossal Volume Express
  • Mega Plush Volume Express
