Summer Natural Makeup Look

Summer Natural Makeup Look


Good morning my lovely beauty ! I hope you guys are having a wonderful Friday morning! I know I am, got to finally sleep in instead of having a boring 8:30 am class! Fridays off are the best days by far! Now that classes are done and I am going to be starting placement, I hope I can get some more blogs in there for you beauts because honestly … who doesn’t love blogging.  Blogging for me is so therapeutic and literally gets everything off my chest, absolutely love it. I decided to come up with a very very natural look for you guys! This is completely wearable for any occasion, even if you wanted to go to beach you could totally wear this! I don’t know about you guys, but I still love wearing makeup to the beach, not a lot but enough in case you bump into someone and don’t look like a complete zombie, am I right? Lets jump right into this! So for this look guys I’m jumping in with my lovely Naked Palette , you can’t go wrong with this guy, the colours are so neutral and warm , I love it.


Starting off with a fresh face I am going to apply all of my foundation( keeping it light and not heavy), my powder and so forth. I am also going to be filling in my brows as well…in case you have no noticed… I have like zero brows.


That’s a bit better! Love it! Now that I actually have some brows , and covered up those imperfections on my face, I am going in with some contouring and highlighting. I literally can not go a day without this step. I am pale as fuh so I have to act tanned somehow right ?


I am first going to take the shade , “Naked” and apply this to the crease of my lids with my lovely fluffy brush. After blending this out well, I am going to in with the shade “Buck”,  and apply this overtop of that first shade, just emphasizing the crease more.


I am then taking the original first shade, “Naked”,  and applying this shade as well to the centre of my life. I absolutely love this shade I think it’s so subtle yet you can still notice it . After applying this, I am going to take the shade , “half-baked”, and apply this overtop of the centre of my lids. This colour is stunning , and the sparkles remind me so much of summer and being in the sun. Just the perfect match!



I then went in with a brown liquid eye gel this time as opposed to black to create more of a natural look and not appear so dramatic. I applied this to the top of my lids.  I then went in with my mascara …don’t mind me …my mascara came with a primer on one end, And applied this to my lashes.


You ready for the fun part? How about let’s add in some fake freckles? I simply used the liquid eye gel in brown, and applied little subtle dots to the top of my nose, cheeks and underneath my eyes. Voila! Now you are rocking some fake freckles!


( you want to ensure your freckles are very subtle and gentle!) 


All I need is coffee and mascara”



I hope you beauts enjoyed this lovely natural summer makeup look. I love looks like these once in a while, you can’t go wrong whatsoever! Make sure you follow my other social media accounts located on my home page for the latest blog posts ! Be sure to subscribe to my channel as well!

Subtle Purple/Pink Smokey Eye

Subtle Purple/Pink Smokey Eye

Hey beauts , I hope you guys all had a fabulous Thursday! Just think … tomorrow is Friday! Thank God , and no more classes for me just placement on Monday ahh!! I decided to do this blog post today on a nice subtle purple/pink smokey eye that I came up with using my naked 3 palette, which is an absolutely stunning palette that I will always LOVE. 


So shall we jump right into it or what ? You can honestly wear this look for daytime or night time I would just highly recommend for daytime , using less of the shade ” Blackheart”.

So first things first I am going to start off with a fresh face , right away I went in and applied my foundation , powder and all that jazz. I skipped adding this in the tutorial as stated previously in my other posts , I usually stick to the same full face routine , so go ahead and check I out in my other blog posts !


I already went in and applied my eyebrows as well , and also an eyelid primer before moving onto the eyes!

The Eyes 

 So right away I am going to grab my Nakes 3 palette which has all these gorgeous pink shades and apply “Mooner” within the crease with a fluffy brush . I am going to ensure that this is all blended out nicely and that there are no harsh lines !


After applying this medium shade within the crease, I am going to take the shade “Strange” and apply this to the inner corners of my eyes. This is going to help brighten up your eyes! Next, I am going to take the shade “Buzz” and apply this to the middle of my lid. This is a beautiful soft sparkly pink which I adore, and it really gives off the gentle look.


After applying this subtle shade to the centre of my lid, I am going to take the shade ” Blackheart“, and applying this to the outer corner of my eyes, the outer V. This is going to create that beautiful smokey eye look, adding a hint of purple to the lids. I added a bit more of this pigmentation to create more of a dramatic look but you can go how dramatic you wish!


I then went in and applied some mascara, added in some false lashes and some stunning purple lipstick to complete the look!


And voila! You are ready for that hot date or a day out in the sun! You choose!




I could stop buying makeup… but I’m not a quitter”

Hello, gorgeous!

My name is Lauren Will! I’m a licensed esthetician, fashion lover, and the girl behind LaurensLipGlossary.com! My blog is getting quite the makeover and won’t be back online for another week, so this does make for the perfect time to do some guest blogging.

I started following Alyssa’s blog earlier this year. As someone who also struggles with anxiety, I felt so connected to her and what she had to say. Another thing we have in common? We are both passionate about beauty and makeup!
One of the reasons I love makeup so much is that it can change the way I feel entirely, even if I’m having the most brutal day! It can be as simple as putting on my favorite lipstick, taking a breath, and reminding myself that I’m a boss bitch ;)! Seeya later, anxious thoughts!
In Vancouver where I live, it’s cold and rainy today. No need to worry though, this makeup look has got me feeling anything but gloomy! The bronzey eyes and coral lip are giving me major summer vacay vibes.

A Hint of Gold-Spring Makeup Tutorial 

A Hint of Gold-Spring Makeup Tutorial 

Hey there my gorgeous beauts! Welcome to my channel if you are new! I decided to change things up again a bit and show you guys a makeup tutorial that I came up with! This one is inspired by spring of course, and is called “a hint of gold “. I am going to be incorporating a gorgeous purple shade by the lovely Modern Renaissance Palette, and add a hint of gold using my Naked Palette. This is a very easy tutorial and I wanted to pass on this look to you beauts! It obviously helps to add a purple top in with this look, just to complete it! Shall we get started?

Cleansed Face 


1) First ensuring that my face is completely washed and primed! My face has been hating me recently, I usually get breakouts on my chin, if you guys have any suggestions on how to get rid of that acne let me know!

Cover them pimps! 


2) Voila ! That’s a little bit better ! I did my normal everyday face routine using all of my facial makeup applicators including my lovely beauty blender! I also applied my contour and highlighter.

The Eyes 


3) Going in with my beautiful Modern Renaissance Palette , I am going in with the purple shade labeled , “Buon Fresco”, and applying this all over my entire primed lid. I am dragging this colour into the crease as well just to ensure every part of my lid is covered. Applying this to my crease as well helps the colour look more blended and not so harsh.


4) I am then going in with the lovely Naked Palette and taking the shade “Halfbaked”, and applying a small dab, literally one stroke, to the middle of my lid. This helps create the spotlight effect that I discussed in my previous blog posts and looks absolutely stunning, hence the hint of gold.



5) I am then done with the eyeshadow of this look, yes it was that easy,  and now adding a winged liner and mascara.



6) Of course, I need to add some false lashes, this is optional! I absolutely love the way of false lashes complete any look and pull it all together . I also put on my favourite lipstick ever, the NYX Cosmetics Liquid Lingerie Lipstick in the shade ” Embellishment”, and applied this all over my lips. I added a few more accessories to the look as well such as a beautiful light purple satin choker.



And voila! A gorgeous purple spring look with a hint of gold, perfect for day time and night time.


On a bad day, there’s always lipstick”

Ocean Blue Makeup Tutorial

Ocean Blue Makeup Tutorial


Hey beauts, hope you are all having a wonderful weekend, or should I say, had a wonderful weekend! It has been an extremely stressful week for me, so I have not been really on the ball with blogging lately, I do apologize for that and will try to pick it up again so just bare with me here! Thanks guys! I decided to throw in a makeup tutorial for today, as I have not done one in forever and wanted to change things up a bit. My sister recently gave me this beautiful Sephora blue single eyeshadow and the first thing I thought of was, “what the hell am I supposed to do with that..?”. I never really use colours as you guys know, I mostly stick to my neutrals and away we go! I came up with this beautiful look today using this ocean blue shade, I hope you guys like it ! Again, If you guys are interested in what products I use on my face, just skip back to my previous makeup tutorial posts where I go step by step on which products I use. To same time and to not repeat myself, I decided to just show you beauts my eye makeup. Shall we get started?!

  1. First, I primed my eyes with my absolute favourite eye lid primer called the “Kat Von D High Voltage Primer”, from Sephora. I am going to have to repurchase this product as I am now running super low!

2. I am now going in with the beautiful colourful glitter blue eyeshadow I think called “Curacao Punch”, and applied this with a small eyeshadow brush all over my entire lid.

3. I am then going in with my “Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette”, and using the black for the smokey eye effect. I am applying the black to the outer V, and blending this out, slowly building up the pigmentation.

4. I then am using the same palette and taking a lighter cream shade to apply this to my inner corners of my eyes, highlighting them and making them stand out more. I am then adding some finishing touches onto my eyes such as some mascara, a winged liner, and also adding a bit of the black eyeshadow underneath my eyes.

“Home is where your makeup stash is”

I also took a nude lipstick and applied this to my lips. I thought nude would be the best shade to ensure this look is not overly dramatic and that the lips do not overpower the eyes.

“Don’t let today be a waste of makeup”

I hope you guys enjoyed this extremely short and easy makeup tutorial. This is so beautiful for a night out or if you are feeling spontaneous, you can wear this during the day as well! Be sure to follow my other social media sites located on my home page for more updates on my latest blog posts! Have a great week guys!

Blacker than Black Smokey Eye Tutorial

Blacker than Black Smokey Eye Tutorial


Good evening beauts  ,hope everyone is having a lovely Saturday night! I was looking at apartments all day long today, thinking we found the right one so fingers crossed! I was playing some old Avril Lavigne today ( the second album come on guys…unreal), and I was inspired by her to create a very...I mean very dramatic look. I absolutely love black smokey eyes, I think they are drop dead gorgeous and someone who can pull it off...props to you! I have not shown an intense black smokey eye on my channel before so I thought I would today for you guys, thanks, Avril!  I highly recommend wearing this look for night outs, as daytime looks, you might get glared at haha! I will be using my ‘Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette” for this look. Shall we rock into this?

First things first, I applied all of my face makeup already and added some tape to the corner of my eyes just to ensure I have a clean line afterwards. I am going to only use the black within the palette of course for this tutorial. This may seem like a very easy tutorial to do since I only used black, however, this was one of the more time-consuming tutorials I have ever done. This is simply because black is such a dark colour, that the fallout will be there, and the blending will be your cardio for the day….literally (bye gym). I am taking a small eyeshadow brush and applying black to the entire lid, placing a bit in the crease but not too much. I am ensuring that every piece of skin is covered on my lid. I had to build up the pigmentation a bit, so be patient! You are literally probably looking at the picture up thinking, “wow why would you post that, that looks ridiculous”. I wanted to show you guys the reality of this look. when you first start, you are not going to be red carpet ready straight away. Your lines are going to appear super harsh and that will eventually be blended nicely.

You are then going to start blending into the crease, and literally blend your life away. I am really focusing on the crease as I want this to look as subtle and flawless as opposed to harsh lines. I even am dragging the black slightly above my crease as well with my fluffy brush. I want a really dramatic smokey eye effect for this look. I then removed the tape and voila, you are literally left with clean straight lines which can outline your winged liner for you….nifty!

As you can see, I even put some of the black underneath my bottom lashes to appear more dramatic and intensify the look. I also went in with some black eyeliner and applied this to my waterline.

I then went in with some mascara and applied this to my bottom and top lashes. I also applied some black liquid liner for the winged look, and placed some false lashes on as well, obviously.

That’s it! I added a bit of some nude lipstick to stay away from overpowering the eyes, and you are left with an absolute badass sexy look for a night out!

“When I die, press my ashes into a smokey eyeshadow palette”

“Savage as F***”

I went a little camera crazy here guys I apologize, I just had to show you how badass this look turned out to be!

I hope you guys enjoyed this short and sweet intense black smokey eye tutorial! Be sure to follow my other social media accounts located on my home page to stay updated with the latest blogs! Have a great evening!

“Topaz Twinkle” Inspired Makeup Tutorial

“Topaz Twinkle”  Inspired Makeup Tutorial

Hey my beauts, hope you all are having a better weekend than I am! I am sick with this damn head cold that is driving me insane, but hey…. what can you do? Just been taking a shit ton of medication and hoping for the best! Again, I was reminiscing back to my nights out and was trying to think of a makeup tutorial to do for today’s post for you guys! I believe I have mentioned one of the main products for today’s blog in one of my previous blog posts but have never done a makeup tutorial on this product to show you guys how amazing it is. So I am going to be using my favourite “Revlon Photoready EyeArt” that I purchased at Shoppers for the main look within this blog. Long story short, I was never planning on buying this product, but I am so glad that I did. I purchased this product for a New Years Look that I was going to create, as I was looking for some product with a shit ton of sparkles in it. I originally was planning on purchasing some sparkles and glue at Sephora but of course, they were completely sold out (I guess everyone wanted to do the sparkle look for New Years). So I thought, “great…now what”?! I thought might as well check what Shoppers have to offer, and to my amazement, I found this gem.  So shall we get started with this shimmery look? Oh.. and by the way… if you guys have not guessed it yet I absolutely love shimmery looks, they have always appealed to me. Okay, okay… let’s do this.

 Clean & Fresh Face

Again, using the same face products that I always use I make sure my face is fully clean and washed before applying my face makeup such as my foundation, powder, contouring and highlighting.

The Eyes

After finishing my face makeup, I then ensure my eyelids are fully primed before applying any eyeshadow. I am going in with the beautiful “Revlon Photoready Eye Art” in the shade “Topaz Twinkle (hint hint wink wink my title), and I am using the matte shimmery side as opposed to the sparkles, and I am going to apply this all over my entire lid. I do love the brush it comes with, but I also take a small eyeshadow brush and make sure it is all applied nicely, especially when it comes near the crease.

After this shade has been applied to the lids, I am going in with my Naked Palette and taking the shade “Sin” which is an absolute flawless pink highlighting shimmer and I am applying this on top of the topaz twinkle. I think this helps make the shades pop more, and really adds a lot of shimmer to it.

Next, I am still using my Naked Palette and going in with the shade “Toasted”, and applying this to the crease acting as the transition shade. I love this shade because it is the perfect pink to transition into the topaz.

I then am going to go in with the shade “Hustle” which is a brown shimmer with a slight hint of pink, and applying this to the outer V creating a slight smokey effect. I am also bringing this shade into the crease with a fluffy brush as well. I then am grabbing a small portion of black which is called “creep” in the palette and applying this to the outer V as well. You can add as much black as you wish to your desired look.

I then am going to take the shade “Hustle” again, and line underneath my bottom lashline to make my eyes “pop”. I am then going to grab the other end of my Revlon stick nd apply the sparkles to the middle of my lid very slightly and also the front of my lash line. After my eyeshadow is complete, I am going to do my finishing touches!  I am going to apply my mascara, and also go in with a black liquid eyeliner to create a winged effect. Something about wings and going out looks that you just have to do. Of course, a “going out look” is never complete without those fake lashes. I absolutely loved these.

Now that the eyes are complete, I am going to move onto the lips. Since the look consists of brown and pink shades, I am going to use my “NYX Cosmetics Lingerie” in the shade “Embellishment” and apply this all over my lips (absolutely love this shade if you have not noticed , thanks, Rachelle Howatson).

The Lips

Lastly, I, of course, need to highlight my bridge of my nose, cheekbones, chin and forehead. I am going in with the beautiful “Nicole Guerriero Palette” in the shade “Forever Lit”, and applying this to all those areas.

Highlighting

“When in doubt, Wing it out”

I hope you guys enjoyed this lovely “Topaz Twinkle” Look that I created for a night time look! Let me know I you guys try out this look of the “Revlon stick”, I am curious! Be sure to follow my other social media accounts on my page to stay updated! They are located on my main page!
