New Year's Eve 2015 Glittery Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial

When I think of New Year's makeup, I think glitter, lashes, bold lips, etc.. You can totally go natural, but today I am going to share more of a fun smokey look that focuses on the eyes!
Instead of the old school classic black smokey eye, I have used colors and added some glitter. This time I kept the lips nude to keep the focus on the eyes. :)
Wish you all a happy new year!!!
Much love and kisses <3 <3 <3

EASY Smokey Makeup Tutorial Using Only Two Eyeshadows

Today I am going to show you an easy way to create a smokey and fancy makeup look using only 2 eyeshadow colors of your choice! You will need a highlighting color and a base color. You can use a duo-chrome eyeshadow for the base color, to create the illusion of having 2 or more colors on your lid and add dimension. The darker the color you choose, the more dramatic and "night time" it's going to look. But you can totally use softer, neutral colors as well, for an everyday, soft look as well!

Products Used:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
MAC Sketch eyeshadow
MAC Shroom eyeshadow
Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes eye pencil in No# OL
Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume mascara

Sculpt Your Face With Subtle Highlighting & Contouring

It's been very trendy lately to sculpt your face with a very heavy highlighting and contouring, allover the face. We've all seen the method where you apply a light shade on the T zone, as well as under the eyes and on the sides of the nose, and then a darker shade on the sides of the forehead, the nose and under the cheekbones. It's really cool and it works! But I know a lot of people are feeling intimidated by this method and are afraid of trying it, or just are not used to wearing a lot of makeup day to day, but still want to add dimension to the face and kind of "sculpt" the face, without feeling like you are wearing a mask.
So today I am going to show you an easier, more subtle version you can use to sculpt and shape your face features! :)

(First) HUGE Haul! Sephora, Drugstore, Bath and Body Works..

I LOVE watching hauls!It gives me ideas of products I want to get, draws my attention to new products I might have missed, and just overall, it's always fun to get into this "shopping" mood and watch new items coming out of a fresh shopping bag :) Especially when it's makeup and beauty products!
But I've never done a haul video myself.. First of all, because I don't shop that often (but, as you will see in the video blow, when I do shop... I SHOP!), and second of all, because I didn't want to feel like I'm just bragging about the things I got. I want to give a useful information as I "shop and tell". So I have decided I WILL do a (first) haul video, but I will use most of the products first, so I can give you some kind of a "mini review" or first impressions on the items I got and then you get an idea of my opinion on them! :)
So in this haul I am going to show you things I got from Sephora, Bath and Body Works, and the Drugstore.
Sorry for the long video... lol
Let me know if you like it and if you would like to see me doing more of these types of videos (when I do shop). I also picked up a few fashion items, so let me know if you would like to see a fashion haul as well :)

The fact that the white face paint in my Makeup Forever 12 Flash Color Case is almost gone, didn't stop me from creating a skull face paint :) I even thought that the skin color I have underneath the black elements of the skull, would blend better with the other half of the face, which I did as a old-Hollywood glamorous makeup look!
Hope you have a happy Halloween ya'll! :D
