Twilight Grunge Eyeshadow Tutorial

If you haven’t yet heard me preaching the wonders of MAC’s Blue Brown pigment, now is the time! I absolutely love this stuff because due to the fact that it’s a duochrome, you can use this one shadow by itself and have a really complete eye look! Just pack it on to your lid, blow it out in the crease and ta-da! A multi-dimensional and complete eyeshadow look with very minimal effort.

Even though this shade is awesome on its own, we’re going to step it up a notch for this eyeshadow tutorial!

You know the drill! As always, I’m going to start by applying my favorite eyeshadow primer, Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance. If you’re prone to oily lids, I’d also recommend using an oil blotting sheet on your lids prior to the primer to absorb any excess oil.

To get started, I’m going to use my finger to pat on a thin layer of NYX’s Eyeshadow Base in Black onto my lid. By starting with a black base on your lid, we’re going to make the duochrome shadow that we’re about to use look even more multi-tonal.

If you don’t have NYX’s Eyeshadow Base in Black, don’t worry! You can use a black eyeliner for this step instead. You wanna make sure that this is an eyeliner that you are able to smudge out though, so I personally would opt for a pencil as gels can be quick drying.

Fresh Summer Eyeshadow Tutorial with Makeup Geek

Hey guys! I did this look for the first time a few weeks ago and decided it was time to get around to making a tutorial for this fresh, summery eyeshadow look! This tutorial is featuring Poppy, one of my all time favorite Makeup Geek shadows. Poppy is an awesome color in general but it’s especially striking on my fellow blue-eyed babes! 😉

I always start my eyeshadow routine by first using an oil blotting sheet on and around my lids to remove any excess oil that will mess up my eyeshadow over time, applying my favorite primer, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and then I dust a small amount of translucent powder over the primer.

Oh, and please try to excuse the pink in my lashes. The new Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme colors are no joke! I’ll be making a post on a couple of the new ABH Summer Collection items soon.

On to the eyeshadow! The first thing I’m going to do is take this big blending brush from Makeup Addiction and apply Makeup Geek’s Peach Smoothie (matte peach) in and above my crease, making sure the edges are nice and soft.

Face Routine Video!

Hey guys! It’s been way too long since I last made a video but I really want to get back on it and start making them regularly. I posted on Instagram several days ago asking for suggestions for videos and many people said they wanted to see my face routine so I delivered!

So here it is! This is the method that I use virtually every single day for my face makeup and contains several products that I’ve featured on my blog such as the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, Make Up For Ever HD Foundation, MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, MAC Warm Soul Blush as well as the Beauty Blender.

This is actually the second time that I recorded this video! The first time I spent so much time setting up, recording and even EDITING just to realize after hours of work that part of the video didn’t get recorded. Ugh. But I pushed on! haha

As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this video as well as what you’d like to see from me in the future!
