Gradient Ombre Eyeliner How To (DIY Colored Liner)

Hey folks! Happy Saturday! :)
Springtime always makes me want to use fun colors and add a pop of color to my everyday makeup. A colorful eyeliner is always fun! But what if you don`t have a specific color of eyeliner in your makeup collection? OR what if you want to use several different colors for your liner and make it fade from light to dark?
Today I am going to show you how you can create any color of liner you want, if you have the same color of eyeshadow! :) I am going to show you how to make it stay put and look vibrant just as an eyeliner would!
Also, I am going to show you how I dress up my springtime-liner by creating a gradient effect!
Scroll down to the bottom of this post to check out the video tutorial and learn exactly how I do it! :) <3

Half Smokey Eye For Prom With A Pop Of Color

I never went to prom, but I LOVE doing poeple's makeup for prom :) You don't want anything too too dramatic, because your young, but it is a very fun occasion, and a great opportunity to look fancy-shmancy!
I love doing smokey, half smokey, and colored-but-not-too-colorful-looks with my Paris palette by Sigma! It's perfect for that! :) And I also wanted to use it to let you know that it's currently available for the discounted rate of $49 (a savings of $10). In addition, the 10% OFF discount code can also be used for additional savings (MAR2014 ($44.10 before shipping and taxes).
The Paris Palette includes eight eye shadows, two blushes, one highlighter, the E55 – Eye Shading brush and the F40 – Large Angled Contour. The blushes and highlighter are exclusive to the palette, and if you get everything else individually, it's a total price of $114.60 vs. the palette price of $44.10 (!)
I, personally got it when it wasn't even discounted. And I absolutely LOVE it! I would have jumped on this opportunity of a GREAT deal, if I didn't have it yet :)
Also, you get a free little gift with the purchase of it :)

Vivi's (Amber Heard) Makeup Look - 3 Days To Kill

I fell in love with Vivi's lipstick the first few minutes of the movie *_* Then I've looked at the eye makeup a little more and I realized I really like the combination of the whole makeup look altogether. Then I have decided I have to try and do this to see if it looks as good on my eye shape as it does on hers. Aaaand a new tutorial was born :D
I really like how it turned out! The color of the lipstick is kind of reddish-burgundy, because during the movie, her lipstick changes from deep berry color, to red. So I went with something in between :)

Products Used:
Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo in Bad To The Bronze
Sigma Approach eyeshadow
Urban Decay Smog eyeshadow
Sigma Hitch eyeshadow
Sigma Elope eyeshadow
Rimmel London Scandal Eyes in Nude

Wearable Version Of Angelina Jolie's Maleficent Makeup Tutorial

So in a little more than two months, a new movie is coming out, staring Angelina Jolie.. Maleficent! Who doesn't like Maleficent??! I remember when MAC came out with the Venomous Villains collection with Disney, So many people liked the Maleficent part the most (I really liked the whole collection, btw..)

I was pretty surprised when I saw the makeup she had in the trailer. Not that crazy-green-Disney-character-Maleficent makeup you might expect.. It's actually pretty wearable! Well.. if you take out the extremely-high-cheekbones-and-crazy-contouring part. Which is what I did! If you replace the red lip with more of a neutral color - then anyone can pull this off! Even the purple on the eyes is not that purple..

The problem is that when I have searched her makeup on the Internet, I have found LOTS of pictures, that the makeup looks are so different on each of them! So you can't really tell which one of them is the right one.. :\
I have finally chose the one that looked the most close-to-reality to me, and decided to use it as a guide. Which is this one:

And this is my version of it:
