Earthy Green

Hey Beauty Fanatics!

I want to start by wishing you all a happy FRIDAY!!!!! Woohoo!

Today, I had so much fun cooping at my son's preschool. Since there were more parents cooping in the classroom than usual, we got to spend more time hanging out with the kids...and talking! Haha! Time flew so quickly. I love cooping since it gives us a chance to really get to know the teachers, the kids in the class, and other parents. Ok, so moving right along to makeup...

This eye is an earthy green look that works for daytime, girls' nite out, prom or whatever you have planned for the weekend. It's a really simple one that's quick to do. Since I've been playing a lot with color, I thought a toned-down eye would be a good one to show for today. Like I said, it's really versatile and can be darkened if you prefer for the night.

What I used:
-MAC Henna ES (all over lid/lower lash line)
-MAC Carbon ES (outer V & crease/outer 1/3 of lower lash line)
-MAC Ricepaper ES (highlight)
-Urban Decay 24/7 in Zero
-Lashblast Mascara in Black
I also paired this with:
-MAC Fun & Games Powder Blush (Hello Kitty Collection)
-MAC Siss Lipstick
-MAC Taupe Notch Gloss
Have an awesome weekend!
Hope you liked it,
Leilani :P

Face Charts

Hey Beauty Fanatics!

So, I've been messing around with face charts to see how some of my looks would translate onto paper. Here's some of what I've done so far. I didn't put lashes on all of them because I felt like it took away from the colors on paper.

Please feel free to comment on this post to let me know what you think. Also, if you're interested in getting a pdf file to create your own face charts, comment below or send me an email with your email address. Enjoy!

This particular one was nspired by my daughter, Mikayla (she loves girly, pastel colors):

Sour Apple Green Eyes

Hey Beauty Fanatics!

Today, I got 2 eye looks in!!!! It was so much fun. I got to play with color, which I usually don't do. But, now I'm more confident in using color! Yay me!

This was is called Sour Apple Green since that's the first thing that came to mind for both my cousin and I when we looked at it. Hope you like it! For this eye, I used a combination of the Coastal Scents 88 Palette (Matte/Shimmer) and my new Sephora Color Play Palette. I apologize in advance for the way that I had to describe the colors used from the Coastal Scents Palette since there aren't any names. I will describe them by column and row.

Here are some shots of the palettes I used:

What I used:

-NYX Jumbo Pencil in Yogurt (blended out all over lid)
-Coastal Scents Palette Green Col 3, Row 5 (all over lid/middle of bottom lashline)
-Coastal Scents Palette Yellow Col 2, Row 2 (inner 2/3 lid/inner 1/2 of bottom lashline)
-Sephora Color Play Palette Yellow (inner corner/tear duct)
-Coastal Scents Palette Cream Col 1, Row 3 (highlight)
-Urban Decay 24/7 in Zero
-Lashblast Mascara
Thanks for checking this out! Please comment and let me know what you think!

Cherry Garcia Inspired: Red/Brown/Cream

Hey Beauty Fanatics!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! My family and I had a really busy one since it was the last weekend of Spring Break for us.

Yay! My first post with a look!!!! I'm trying to get more up as quickly as I can. So, please stay tuned for more.
Anyway, I thought I'd share this Cherry Garcia inspired look with you all. Yes...that's right! I'm talking about the Ben and Jerry's ice cream flavor. Haha! Sounds weird, but I was eating some with my brother-in-law over the weekend and thought it would make a lovely combination of colors. The hubby thought I was so funny!!!! My cousin, Donna, so graciously allowed me to experiment with the look on her! Thanks, Donna! You'll be seeing her a lot since I am really trying to practice more on other people than just do makeup on myself. As you can imagine, it's really different to do so :) I hope you all like it! It was actually really simple. I didn't have to use too many colors.
What I used:
-Clinique Acne Solutions Moisturizer
-Benefit "That Gal" Brightening Face Primer
-MUFE Mat Velvet +
-BE Mineral Veil
-glo minerals "golden" concealer
-NARS Orgasm Blush (My new favorite blush! Don't know what too me so long to try it, but I'm glad I did!!!)
-MAC Cranberry ES (Lid)
-MAC Mulch ES (Outer V & Crease) My absolute fave brown ES!!!
-MAC MSF Natural Light/Medium (Highlight)
-MAC Mouthwatering Lip Glass
And that's it...
Let me know what you think of it!!
