Hey guys! So I finally got around to creating a tutorial for the look I did in my Sugarpill Burning Heart Palette Review post. Today I’m running on about 2 hours of sleep and ridiculous amounts of caffeine so I consider this a pretty big accomplishment! Let’s just try to excuse any mistakes I make along the way. 😛
Before I get started with any shadow, I’m going to prime and put down a base. I’m using Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance primer and a thin layer of NYX’s White Eyeshadow Base.
The first shadow I’m going to use is Blur (light peachy tan) from the Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter stack. I’m using my Makeup Addiction blending brush to place this in and above my crease, stopping a little under my brow bone to create a very natural looking transition.
Next I’m going in with in with Sugarpill’s Buttercupcake (yellow) and that same brush and basically placing it in the same area only not taking it quite as high this time.

Hey guys! Sorry that I haven’t been posting lately but life has kept me soo busy! We’re considering moving so I’ve been on this mad dash trying to find a good apartment in time and I haven’t had much time to dedicate to my blog recently but I’ve got big plans for the future and all of this craziness should be over very soon! 😉
I know that not all of you follow me on Instagram so I figured I’d make a quick post showing you some of my recent looks as well as the details for them.
For the natural part of this eyeshadow look, I used Makeup Geek’s Peach Smoothie, Beaches and Cream, Taupe Notch, Purely Naked and Sweet Dreams & the green is from my Coastal Scents 252 Palette. This white liner is Stila’s Stay All Day in Snow. It looks super cool but I wouldn’t really recommend it. It’s hard to get opaque. I really need to break and order a good white liner! I’m also wearing Make Up For Ever’s Rouge Artist Intense in #50 on my lips.
This eyeshadow look was done with the Sephora Facets of Marsala Palette which I ADORE! The color choices in this palette are just blowing my mind since I’m a total sucker for reds and warm shades in general. Overall, I really love the Facets of Marsala Palette but certain shades have some serious fallout issues so you’ll probably want to do your eyes first with this! It appears to be sold out online but your local store might still have a few around! 😉
I’m wearing NYX Cosmetics Euro Trash on my lips and House of Lashes Temptress Wispy lashes.

Hey hey! I just wanted to make a quick post sharing pictures of my face of the day from yesterday as well as all of the details!
For the eye look, I’m using Makeup Geek shadows in Peach Smoothie as a transition shade and Last Dance to deepen the outer portion. I’ve got KIKO eyeshadow in 203 on the inner and outer portion of my lid with KIKO 218 in the center of my lid. The pink in the inner corner is Urban Decay’s Hot Pants. I finished it up with House of Lashes Temptress Wispy lashes and a bright red waterline, courtesy of Inglot’s AMC Gel Liner in 79.
I’m also wearing Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder in Medium Brown for my brows and NYX’s Matte Lipstick in Butter on my lips.
Also, this awesome new headpiece of mine is from Bullhorn! I think they’re really lovely and a great way to turn a bad hair day into something fabulous! 😛
The husband and I are heading out to a cabin for a few days on Wednesday so I might be a little MIA for a bit but I am soo pumped for a relaxing few days out in the country! Hope you’re all doing well!
Packaging: The Inglot Gel Eyeliner comes in a clear plastic tub with a black lid. The clear container makes it easy to see what color your product is. Nothing too special here but it does what it needs to do. 7/10
Longevity: Impressive! This waterproof eyeliner lasts and lasts, even in my waterline which I was starting to believe was impossible. 10/10
Application: Very smooth. The product seems thinner than other gel eyeliners and is a pleasure to apply. It does not skip or drag. 10/10
Texture: Very soft, smooth and easy to work with. 9/10
The Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel comes in a plastic container with a black screw-on lid. The product weight is about 5 grams and costs $12. For reference, MAC’s Fluidline will run you $16 for about 3 grams and Maybelline’s Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner is approximately $9 for 3 grams. When you take into account the amount of product you’re receiving, I think it’s a pretty great value.
