Big Beautiful Eyes by Benefit

My new beauty obsession for the week is this wonderful palette called Big Beautiful Eyes by Benefit Cosmetics. It’s the perfect palette for date night to create that soft eye contour.  I love it so much!  It comes complete with eye contouring and eye concealing and works for all eye colors. This little kit is all  you need to line, define, and contour like a pro. It’s a perfect size to slip into your clutch to retouch for date night or a girl’s night out! The palette includes the following color and tools – Boi-ing concealer, a soft shimmer shade of Alabaster Pink (for the base),  a shimmer Cocoa eyeshadow (for a soft contour), a rich Chocolate eyeshadow (for lining and defining).  #makeuplove. Here is a glimpse of the palette…

project 2015 / // vsco

Hello. project 2015 continues and we have reached wk. 012. project 2015 showcases a different photo filter/style weekly. See last week’s post here.  Everyone knows about the popular app VSCO. The app allows users to transform bland photos into gallery-worthy artistic images. This week I was a little distracted and lost focus and didn’t take too many photos. For the photos that I did take, I used VSCO HB2 filter and love it.  Here is a glimpse of my Saturday…

MAC for Cinderella

I recently saw the 2015 version of Cinderella with my little friend {Olivia} and adored the movie. Who doesn’t like Cinderella?  The most iconic Disney princess of all inspired the new limited edition MAC cosmetics collection.  What can I say about this palette? The palette is the most sparkliest, dreamiest and royal collection of all time. Here is a glimpse…

makeup monday // all about the base

mac cosmetics painterlyHappy makeup Monday! It’s really all about the base.  I absolutely cannot live without my MAC Cosmetics Paint Pot – Painterly.  This is a must-have for all beauty bags.  I use this product every single day!  I have tried many products for the base primer for eyeshadow and nothing beats this product. Painterly has a gorgeous soft-pink tone base. If you have more yellow undertones, I would go more towards Soft Ochre. I went back and forth with the two colors, but Painterly seems to agree more with my skin tone.  MAC’s paint pots are so amazing and the texture is smooth and blends very easily.

How I use it…

I use my fingertip and dip and take small amount – a little goes a long way. I sweep it across my eyelid and blend with my finger.  This provides the perfect base before applying your eyeshadow.   You would apply your eyeshadow as normal.  The beauty of this product is that it prevents your eyeshadow from creasing. After hours and hours after application, my eyeshadow always looks smoothly blended and this is because it was primed with MAC’s Painterly.  Another tip is that I also use this as a base for my eye brows. My good friend {Jennifer} taught me this trip. Basically, apply a small amount and blend over your brows. Apply your brow shadow with an angled brush or brow pencil. The primer will also keep your brow makeup in tack forever!
