Blue makeup look | Sugarpill Sweetheart Palette

Hello Beauties!

I just wanted to share my makeup of the day. I really love the pigmentation of Sugarpill Cosmetics eyeshadows. They will stay put all day, but I find its best to use a primer or base such as the NYX jumbo pencil in milk to make the colors pop.

Eye Brow Tutorial | Anastasia Beverly Hills

20130816-160553.jpg

Hello Beauties!

Today I’m bringing you a brow tutorial using all Anastasia Beverly Hills products. I am really impressed with her products, so I hope you find this useful.

Here are the steps to achieve the look:

1.) Tweeze any stray hairs with the Anastasia tweezers and brush out the brow.
2.) To get a clean edge, line the bottom of your brow with the matte side of the brow duality pencil.
3.) Take the brow pen (mine is in universal deep) and start filling in the brow leaving the inner most part blank. (You can use light stokes to fill in that section if desired.)
4.) With the angled brush, dab it into the lighter color in the brow powder duo (mine is in brunette) and use this to lightly fill in the front of the brow. Also, with the matte side of the brow duality pencil, line the upper brow to give it a clean edge.
5.) Blend the top and bottom brow duality pencil lines with your finger or a brush.
6.) Set all the hairs in place with the clear brow gel.

All finished!!

Till the next one lovelies!
Laugh Often & Love always!
