Rolling into Spring Shimmery & Shiny

IMG_9480

I am officially OBSESSED with Stila’s new liquid eye shadows!  Whether it is the ‘Glow’ set, the ‘Shimmer’ set or the ‘Glitter’ set – I LOVE IT.  I haven’t been able to stop playing with it.  I have been using it on all my girls and it looks absolutely wonderful on each and every one of them! Seriously, if you haven’t tested this product out yet… GO GET SOME!  I promise you won’t regret it. The colors are so rich and pigmented with glitter, and shine, whichever way you turn you’ll shimmer in all the right ways.

These new shadows are a MUST HAVE for Spring and Summer.  What better way to get that summer glow??  The best part is – it’s build-able! You can wear a light layer during the day and then add a thicker layer before heading out for the night with your girls, or maybe dinner with your man!

I was hesitant to try this product at first because liquid shadows make me nervous.  Some brands can be chunky upon application and feel wet on your eyelids.  It would end up leaving my eyelids and the shadow creased after an hour.  These products, however, do not feel like that AT ALL.  They’re super light and they dry very quickly.  Take a look at some of the girls I did using them:

Cydney (left) I topped her look off with ‘Gypsy’… She totally rocked this purple glitter shimmer! Her eyes looked amazing and this color went so well with the eye shadow palette I used.

Gillian (right) I used ‘Carefree’ on her in the inner corners.  The pink shimmer gave her eyes a nice pop.  It was date night for her and her hubby and this look nailed it for her!

Me (below), I wanted to give you guys a look of how you can rock this shadow on a daily basis with a more natural look- whether at the office, running errands, or just hanging around. I used Enchantress.

Needless to say, I’m obsessed.  I bought a handful of colors and I can’t wait to try more.  If you haven’t tried this product yet GO OUT AND GET IT.  Tell them I sent you! Below are the colors I have in my collection – drop a note and tell me your favorite Stila Liquid Eye Shadow color…maybe it will be my next purchase!

Palettes on Palettes

I love buying and testing out new eyeshadows. There’s always the staple shadows I love but after I while I get bored and need to try something new! That’s why I love buying palettes; they offer so many options so you don’t get use to just one shadow and tire of it!

Some of my favorite palettes are Naked 2 by Urban Decay, Full Exposure by Smashbox, In The Know Palette by Stila (discontinued), & Boudoir Eyes by Too Faced.

A Little Shine Never Hurts

We all know matte lips are definitely more popular these days. Matte lipsticks stay on a lot longer and don’t smudge easily ,making them a great choice for long wear. But wearing a little shine and gloss now and then is always an exciting change!screen-shot-2017-01-31-at-8-13-56-pm

One of my favorite gloss lipsticks is Stila’s Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss. This lip gloss is ultra pigmented and long lasting, while still being incredibly moisturizing. This means you get the burst of color all day while not having to worry about drying out your lips!

Color in photo is Fuchsia Vinyl.

Ready For A Night Out!

You don’t always need a special occasion to get your makeup done and strut your stuff! Sometimes a night out with the girls is exactly what you need, and having your makeup done is the icing on the cake. The beautiful Shannon was pampered and polished before heading into the city – doesn’t she look amazing?!

IMG_0379I used Urban Decay’s Naked Palette 2 on her eyes:

  • Whole lid: half baked
  • Crease: snakebite
  • Outer corners: blackout
  • Inner corners: chopper
  • Brow bone: bootycall
  • Stila Smudge Pot Liner (top lid)
  • Smashbox Always Sharp Eyeliner (water line)
  • Ardell eyelashes – 111 Black
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel

For her beautiful skin I used Debra Macki Sunlit Beige Concealer, Debra Macki Foundation, Too Faced Translucent Powder, & Palladio Baked Blush-Atlantic.

And to top it off, for a subtle lip I used:

  • Debra Macki Lipstick Wink
  • Debra Macki Lip Pencil Le Rose
