A Daytime Glam Eye Look: Neutral Shimmer

Hey there, beauties!

Today, we’re going ham on the glam (teehee) with this shimmery daytime eye look that is simple and fierce.  Who doesn’t love a little winged eyeliner and glittery eyeshadow every once in a while?  I think that this look is very appropriate for fall since it is made up of some gorgeous bronze shades, so I love wearing it during this season when my eyes need a little pop.  This look is really easy to achieve and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!

First, I used my NYX Jumbo Pencil in the shade Iced Mocha to prep my eyes.  I blended the edges slightly to smooth out any harsh lines.

Next, I patted Urban Decay’s Space Cowboy all over my lid with a damp brush.  This eyeshadow is the meaning of glitter.  Using a damp brush helps to intensify the pigmentation of the eyeshadow and reduce fallout.

Afterward, I used the shades Naked and Buck from the Naked Palette and a fluffy brush to blend the previous shades into the crease.

To deepen up the look a little more, I took the shades Whiskey and Password from the Naked Smoky palette and focused it on the crease and a bit of the outer V of my eye.

I then applied my L’oreal Liquid Liner and Ardell 117 Natural lashes along with using a mixture Urban Decay’s Thirteen and High from the Smoky Palette to highlight my brow bone and inner corners.

And that, ladies and gents, is the finished look.  I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial and that it was helpful to you!  I think that while this look is on the bolder side of things, it is still totally wearable for any kind of daytime event and isn’t overdone. Thanks for reading!

Amber Lights | Warm Fall Eyeshadow

Hello, lovelies!

I don’t know about you, but during the fall, I LOVE wearing warm, sparkly shadows to embrace the season.  Amber Lights from MAC is a beautiful shade that does just that!  Since I love it so much, I have based this fall-inspired eye look around it!  This eyeshadow really brings out blue eyes, but also looks amazing on any eye color.  I highly recommend picking it up if you’ve been on the lookout for an autumn eyeshadow!  Let’s get into the tutorial!

Amber Lights Amber Lights

Eyeshadow Tutorial

  1.  I applied Makeup Geek’s Peach Smoothie and Barcelona Beach to the crease of my eye.  This doesn’t have to be exact; I like to blend these shades out a little through the lid with a big, fluffy blending brush.  This will be the transition shade and make other shades easier to blend.

2.    Time for the star of the show –Amber Lights from MAC.  I applied this shade all over the lid.  I really packed it on so that it was very opaque and sparkly!

3.    I then blended Makeup Geek’s Cocoa Bear through the crease for a warm, cranberry look.

4.    To make the eye a little smokier, I blended Cocoa Bear along the outer edge of the lower lash line.

5.    Next, I blended Amber Lights in the middle of the lower lash line.

6.    I then highlighted my brow bone and inner corner with Urban Decay’s Thirteen.

7.    To give my eye more definition, I applied Urban Decay’s Bourbon Eyeliner to the lash line and smudged it out.

8.    Lastly, I applied Sephora’s Outrageous Curl Mascara with Ardell 120 Lashes.


Voila!  This look is super quick and easy to do!  It’s perfect for this season and made me feel really festive and excited for fall!

My Top 5 Makeup Brushes

Hello, beauties!

Makeup brushes are one of my favorite things.  You can never have too many!  They are fun to collect and too beautiful not to buy!   Having the correct tools when applying makeup makes life way easier.  Even when using cheaper makeup, if you have the right brushes, your makeup will look much more professional.  Today I’ll be sharing with you a few brushes that I absolutely could not live without!  I hope you enjoy!

IMG_4460IMG_4464

  1. Zoeva 102 Silk Finish Brush

IMG_4487IMG_4489

This foundation brush is amazing at applying liquid foundation and even buffing out concealer.  It blends everything so smoothly and makes makeup look air-brushed.  I absolutely love the handle since I am obsessed with rose gold.  The bristles are dense and super soft.  I recommend this brush to anyone looking for something to apply their foundation flawlessly!

2.  Zoeva 142 Concealer Brush

IMG_4478

Zoeva’s concealer brush is basically a little baby version of the 102, which I just mentioned.  I never realized how helpful a brush like this would be until I owned one and realized what living truly was.  How did I survive without this?  It is amazing at covering acne, scarring, or dark circles.  It perfectly packs the product onto the problem area and buffs it out very naturally.  It makes concealing acne much easier and perfectly applies concealer.

3. Sephora 61 Allover Powder Brush

IMG_4491 IMG_4492 IMG_4508

This brush may be the best out of all of my favorites.   Sephora’s #61 is absolutely amazing at applying powder products.  It is so large that it makes the job of powdering extremely quick.  It picks up just enough product so that I never look cake-y.  The bristles are SUPER dense and feel softer than a baby’s butt.  I’m not joking -it’s heavenly and you need it in your life.

4. Crown C491 Crease and Shadow Brush

IMG_4475

This brush makes applying eyeshadow much quicker and easier.  It has everything I need in one!  I use the flat part of the crease brush to pack shadow on my lid, its fluffy edge to blend in the crease, and the pointier side to apply a dark shade to my lash line for definition.  The bristles are very soft and never hurt my eyelids as some rougher brushes can.  This brush is perfect for traveling since I don’t have to pack any others.

5. Zoeva 317 Wing Liner Brush

IMG_4507

Winged liner is possibly the most difficult thing to apply in the history of ever.  If you do not have the correct brush when using gel liner, it’s practically impossible to achieve a sharp wing, nonetheless somehow manage to make both eyes even!  This brush makes lining my eyes 100000x easier and I cannot live without it!   It creates a wing so sharp it could kill a man.  I have so much control with this brush that it makes winged liner a piece of cake.  I never thought I would say that!  If you have trouble lining your eyes with gel liner, I really recommend this brush since it will make your life much easier!

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my favorite makeup brushes and that these recommendations have been helpful to you!  I could not live without these amazing tools!  What are some of your favorites that I need to check out?

Fall Floral

Hello, beauties!

With fall approaching fast, I’ve been very excited about infinity scarves, boots, and sweaters!  Autumn is my favorite season since I love the fashion, food, and the weather!  Even the makeup during this season is something I look forward to!  I’ve put together a neutral fall-inspired outfit that is very cute and casual for everyday wear.  Every piece in this outfit is a basic staple for the fall season and goes perfectly with the pop of color from the infinity scarf!  This is a typical outfit that I would wear on a cool fall day and I hope that you enjoy it!

Matte Lips 101 | Prevent Creasing and Flaky Skin

Hey there, lovelies!

With the Fall season coming up, I’ve been getting very excited about matte, Kylie Jenner-esque lipsticks!  If you have dry, chapped lips like me, you’ll know how much of a struggle it is to have matte lipstick look halfway decent and not settle into all the lines and flaky skin!  I’ve discovered a few things which make applying matte lipsticks SO much easier for me and today, I’d like to share them with you!

IMG_5120
Matte-5Matte-7


1. Exfoliate

IMG_5035IMG_5724 (1)IMG_6652-1
This may be the most important step!  If your lips are not exfoliated, the lipstick will make your lips look like a chapped mess.  I have a bit of trouble with flaky lips, so I regularly use Lush’s Bubblegum Lip Scrub, which smells absolutely amazing!  Also, I make my own DIY lip scrub that is super easy to make and happens to smell wonderful as well!

2. Moisturize

IMG_4277IMG_4289

Matte lip products will suck all the moisture out of your lips, so it’s very necessary to use some sort of lip balm before applying your lipstick!  This will prevent your lips from getting dried out underneath the matte lip product.  I absolutely LOVE Lush’s Ultrabalm and highly recommend it for anyone with dry, flaky skin!  This product can be used on the lips or any troubled, dry areas.  It’s very soothing and locks in moisture like no other product I’ve ever used!

3. Prime

IMG_6998

When applying any sort of lip product, it is very helpful to prep your lips with a thin layer of concealer or just plain old face primer.  Lip primers also exist, but I don’t think they are necessary when some of the products you probably already own will do the trick!  This will make the lipstick last longer, show the true color of the product more, and make the application easier.  I like to use Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Concealer or Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer.  You’ll be amazing at how much more smoothly the lipstick will apply with such a great base!

4. Line

IMG_9799

Lining your lips with make the application of your lipstick SO much cleaner, easier, and more precise.  It will prevent any bleeding or smudging of product and also increase the lasting power!  I am using my L’oreal Infallible Lip Liner in Rose, but I also recommend Makeup Forever’s Lip Line Perfector, since it is clear and works with any color of lip product.  It’s absolutely amazing at keeping your lipstick in place and preventing any bleeding of product!  It really does perfect the lips!  I think it’s a great investment if you’re into lip products and want something to make them last all day and look amazing!

5. Conceal

IMG_3755

 After applying your matte lipstick of choice (Some of my fave’s are Gerard Cosmetic’s Serenity and Kat Von D’s Lovecraft) using a concealer brush or any small, precise brush you own, sharpen the edges of your lips and clean up any mistakes you may have made with some concealer.  This will really finish off your lips and make them look perfect!  Again, I’m using my trusty ol’ Naked Skin Concealer with a BareMinerals Concealer Brush.

Thanks so much for reading!  What are some of your tips for flawless matte lips? (Yes, that rhyme makes me very happy)

Hanna

DIY Lip Scrub | Lush Dupe

Hello, lovelies!

Today, I will be showing you a super simple DIY lip scrub that I love!  It is made with household ingredients, so it is very convenient and cheap!  I love Lush’s lip scrubs as much as the next girl, but I actually prefer the ones I make myself and they are way cheaper since they’re homemade! This scrub smells amazing and is adjustable to whatever you might have on hand. Enjoy!

IMG_5748

www.LipstickLovely.com

You will need:

  • 1 TBSP Brown (or white) sugar
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (or olive oil)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

IMG_5691 (1) IMG_5697 IMG_5698

Simply mix all of the ingredients together and feel free to adjust the amounts of ingredients to your liking until you get the perfect consistency and sugar-to-oil ratio.  Then pop the mixture into some cute containers and get scrubbing!

IMG_5700 (1)IMG_5715IMG_5732 (2)IMG_5727 (1)IMG_5724 (1)IMG_5719=

The sugar scrub will exfoliate all of the dead, flaky skin off of your lips, while the coconut oil moisturizes.  The honey gives the scrub a nice texture and scent and the cinnamon will increase blood flow to your lips causing them to be plumper after using the scrub!  The vanilla is optional along with the cinnamon, but I really recommend adding this to your scrub since it makes it smell SO amazing.

I hope that you all enjoy this simple DIY and try it out yourself!  It is my favorite lip scrub and I think you’ll love it, too!  Thanks for reading!

Hanna

The Perfect At-Home Spa / Pamper Night!

Hello, beauties!

Grab yourself a cup of tea, because today I will be showing you my all-time favorite products to have the best spa night ever!  I think it’s so important to pamper yourself and take time to relax.  These are the products I use to do just that!

IMG_4975

Bath and Bodywork’s Lanikai Coconut candle smells like heaven and I have been obsessed with it recently!  It smells fresh, sweet and, somehow, reminds me of a really lovely conditioner.

IMG_5047

Glamglow’s Thirstymud is perfect for rehydrating my dry skin and also smells like coconut, which happens to go perfectly with my candle!

IMG_5011 IMG_5013 IMG_5022 IMG_5016

Glamglow’s Brightmud is absolutely AMAZING.  It works magic on the dark circle demons.

IMG_5056 IMG_5057 IMG_5051 IMG_5003

Lush’s H’suan Wen Hua Hair Treatment makes my hair SO soft.  Also, it smells so incredibly good that I want to eat it.  All of it.

IMG_4989 IMG_4997 IMG_4996\

Lush’s Dorothy Bubble Bar is my favorite for a relaxing bubble bath!  It smells amazing and looks so cute!  I love this so much I’ve included it in my Lush Favorites!

IMG_5043

The Tree Hut Sugar Scrub in the Tropical Mango Scent is what heaven will smell like -I’m sure of it.  It makes my legs SO smooth and is the best sugar scrub I’ve ever used!  If we’re going to get technical here, it has the perfect sugar to oil ratio and almost a gel-like consistency that really gets off all the dead skin!

IMG_4983 IMG_4982 IMG_4978

LUSH’s Bubblegum Lip Scrub is perfect for getting all the dry skin off of my lips and it tastes great, too!

IMG_4976 IMG_5035

The Body Shop’s Argan Radiance Oil adds some much needed moisture to my skin! It doesn’t have an overpowering scent and leaves my skin with a nice shine, but doesn’t feel greasy.  I love using this to give my skin a nice glow and it’s so easy to use since it’s in a spray bottle!

Collab With Plus Beauty: My Top 5 Summer Lipstick Picks

Hello, lovely people:)

Today, I am collaborating with one of my favorite bloggers; Katie from Plus Beauty!  We will each be sharing our top 5 Summer Lipsticks!   You should definitely go have a peek at her post and follow her amazing blog. 🙂  I hope you enjoy seeing our favorite lipsticks for the summertime!

IMG_4078IMG_4065 IMG_4066IMG_4061

1. Mac’s Pure Zen Cremesheen -$16 USD

This color is the perfect summery-nude shade since it is a warmer, peachy tone and won’t look odd or too light on tanned skin.  It has a sheen to it and is lightweight for everyday summer use!

IMG_2048 IMG_4142 IMG_4122

2. Essence’s Coral Calling 01 -$2.99 USD

IMG_6687IMG_4114 (1)

This is a coral/pink shade with a slight sheen.  It lasts for hours and never dries out my lips.  Even after it has worn off, these lipsticks almost dye my lips a little, so they always have color even after the product has worn off.  The price of this lipstick is amazing!  I really recommend Essence’s lipsticks if you’re looking for something affordable!

3. Wet ‘n Wild’s Hot Paris Pink 542B – $.99 USD

IMG_0278 IMG_4108

I LOVE this beautiful, bright pink shade.  It is slightly shiny and feels very light on the lips for summertime.  It leaves a pink tint to the lips even after wearing off.  It claims to have 4-hour wear, but will leave them looking pink even after the 4 hours are up!  I love this color of pink, because I find it actually makes my teeth look whiter, where many pink shades make teeth look yellow.  Also, you can’t beat the price!

4. Essence’s Wear Berries 09 -$2.99 USD

IMG_1555 IMG_3861 IMG_4132 IMG_4095 IMG_4096

This lipstick is a warm purple that has a beautiful sheen to it.  Again, you can’t beat the price and formula of Essence’s lipsticks.  I love this shade as it is a warmer purple color that doesn’t look too overpowering when worn.  It doesn’t make my teeth look yellow as some purples can.

5.  Maybelline’s Color Whisper in 100 Plum Prospect – $7.49 USD

IMG_5763 IMG_4097  IMG_4140 IMG_4167

This is a very warm, berry, purple shade.  It may look intimidating in the tube, but it is such a sheer, gel-like formula that the color is not overpowering at all.  It can be built up to a brighter color or, by using just a few dabs, give a light berry tint to the lips.  This is a glossy lipstick and lasts a surprisingly very long time.  This dyes my lips and leaves them a beautiful berry color all day long when I wear it!  After swatching it on my hand, it dyed my skin and still hasn’t worn off! This lightweight formula is perfect for Summer!

IMG_4072IMG_4075

IMG_4022  IMG_4015IMG_4004 IMG_3990

Now that you’ve seen my top picks, you can find even more amazing lipsticks for Summer over on Katie’s blog!  Thank so much, Katie for collabing with me! ❤

I hope that you enjoyed seeing all my Summertime lip favorites!  What are yours?

Hanna
