For this look I am going to use my Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Palette, focusing more specifically on the colour to the far right. I absolutely love the idea of oranges with a purple lip, it just sounded amazing so I had to try it out.


I am going to go in with this burnt orange shade and apply this all over my entire lid, dragging it into the crease as well.


Next, I am taking this maroon shade and applying it to my crease with a fluffy brush. This is a beautiful transition shade and I absolutely love these colours together. After applying these two colours, literally the only colours we are using, I took a small eyeshadow brush and applied some of the maroon shade underneath my lower lash line to make my eyes “pop”. After this, I am applying my black liquid eyeliner on top of my upper lash line and drawing out a wing. I am then taking my favourite mascara and applying to my top and bottom lashes. Next, is the lips! I am taking my beautiful new shade in “vamp” and applying this to my lips, it’s absolutely stunning, perfect for that fall look! Voila, you are done!

My Review on Lipsense 

My Review on Lipsense 

Hello beauts ! Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday afternoon ! I woke up this morning and had to check the mail cause I knew in my gut something was in there and to my surprise a lovely pink package was there ! I opened it up and found this super cute lipstick bag with three lipsense bottle in there and this cute note ontop of the package ! I recently was talking to Anna Schweitzer on Facebook about collaborating with her and reviewing lipsense as she is a lipsense distributer. If you wish to get ahold of her here is all her information below !

Anna was amazing at letting me choose which shades I preferred and I let her know I like the more neutral shades such as nudes and pinks. She sent me this beautiful shade over which was called , ” Bella “. It’s an amazing long lasting lip colour that is kiss proof , smudge proof , water proof , gluten free , wax free , cruelty free and lead free ! How amazing is that ? So beauts I am all about my lipstick and was so stoked when I saw the colour I almost died ! It was a beautiful pink /nude shade combined ! So the instructions are simple:

1. Start with clean dry lips

2. Shake tube before application

3. Apply a sweeping motion across with lips parted

4.let it dry between coats ( 5 seconds)

5. Apply at least 3 layers of one or more colours to achieve long lasting results

6. Keep your lips parted until colour is fully dry ( about 10 seconds )

7. Top with your favourite lip gloss !

How easy is that ? So following the instructions I applied ” Bella ” to my lips and added my lip gloss that came with the bottles ontop of the colour and voila ! Also lipsense came with another bottle called “oops remover “, which helps remover the lip colour ! So no worries !

I am inlove with this shade you guys and will probably be purchasing more ! It glides so smoothly on your skin! Although it smells very strong on your lips when put on , the smell goes away and your lips look amazing . After applying the gloss my lips were so shiny ! Lipsense also tingles at first when you apply it which caught me off guard at first but there is a cosmetic glade alcohol in the product that kills any bacteria on your lips . It eventually goes away ! Lipsense also works as an exfoliator and breaks down wax build up and cleanse your lips . I thought I would let you beauts know about some facts with lipsense ! It is temperature sensitive so do not expose to extreme joy or cold . You can remove the lipstick with the oops remover!

This shade is perfect for nude and neutral looks and can be worn for day time and night time looks as well ! I am for sure going to wear this for day time looks !

I want to thank Anna again for being so kind and sending me my own package of lipsense ! If you wish to purchase your lipsense be sure to check out her Facebook page at “Small Town Big Beauty Makeup “, and send her a message ! Highly recommend trying this out for yourselves beauts ! If there’s one thing about my channel is I am completely honest , and after applying this lipstick I was blown away ! The colour and shade is to die for . I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and until next time ! Be sure to follow my other social media accounts located on my home page for upcoming blog posts !

Autumn Evening Makeup Tutorial 

Autumn Evening Makeup Tutorial 

Good morning my lovely beauts ! I hope you all have a fantastic Monday today ! I know I am going to try to even though I have class from 8-6 today … fml majorly. Hey that’s school though what can you do! So today’s makeup tutorial is going to be a step right after my copper makeup look! So if you haven’t checked out my last makeup tutorial, check out that one cause after your finished look from that one, you are going to do a couple more steps to achieve this beautiful copper evening makeup look for today! I love experimenting with fall colours and came up with this gorgeous look for autumn! Let’s get started!

So the finished look from the copper tutorial looked something like this!


You are then going to take that same Morphe 350 shimmer palette and go in with this stunning dark brown shade. I am applying this over top of my copper shade, focusing on the outer corners of my eyes and dragging this colour into the crease as well. Since it is a dark colour , you want to ensure that you blend it well and be patient with it!


I then am grabbing this same colour and putting a little bit underneath my lower lash line, just to make my eyes pop! I grabbed my NYX Cosmetics liquid lip lingerie in the shade Embellishment and applied this to my lips. I added some fake lashes to create a more dramatic autumn look and voila! You are done!




“On a bad day, there’s always lipstick”


I hope you beauts enjoyed this continuation of my last makeup look! This is perfect for date night or a night out! Be sure to follow my other social media accounts located on my home page! Happy Monday!

Fall Makeup Tutorial 

Fall Makeup Tutorial 

Let the grunge begin! Hello my beauts , welcome to my Channel if you are new ! My names Alyssa and one of my hobbies are doing makeup and sharing my ideas with you beauts !  My favourite season is fall mostly because I love pumpkin flavoured anything really! I’m that “ basic bitch” as some may call it, but I don’t mind one bit.  I am going to be using my Modern Renaissance Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills for this look, and let me just say, it is is super easy to achieve.  Let’s get started!

First and for most, I ensure that I have a nice clean face before applying all my face makeup such as my foundation, powder and so forth.

I am then taking the shade, “Antique Bronze” and applying this all over my lid with a small eyeshadow brush, and blending this shade out into my crease as well using a fluffy brush. This is a very pigmented shade, so be sure to blend thoroughly and have a lot of patience.

Yes, you are going to look a bit like a racoon here but I promise you, the finishing look will be worth it! Next, I am going in with the shade “Burnt Orange” and applying this to my crease as well as underneath my lower lash line.  Then I am going to apply some black liquid liner to my lids, and apply a tiny bit of mascara to my top and bottom lashes. I then applied some false lashes, and voila! Your eyes are ready for that fall weather! I absolutely love this grunge look and it’s perfectly acceptable for this kind of weather. I also applied the shade “Velvet Teddy” onto my lips to tie the look in altogether.

“And all at once, Summer collapsed into Fall…”


I hope you beauts enjoyed this fall makeup look that I have created and try it out for yourselves. Be sure to follow my other social media accounts located on my home page for more blog posts to come in the near future, take care!

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” 



 

I hope you beauts enjoyed this super easy makeup tutorial! Be sure to check out my other social media accounts located on my home page for more blog posts to come in the near future! Let me know if you beauts try this look out ! 


“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!

Brown Ombre Effect Makeup Look

Brown Ombre Effect Makeup Look

Processed with MOLDIV

Happy Tuesday Beauts, hopefully, today flies by! I am actually hoping this week flies by as well, that would be absolutely wonderful! I decided to do another blog post today on another makeup tutorial. I feel a lot of my viewers enjoy these blog posts and I am more than happy to do them!I have been obviously experimenting with the “Modern Renaissance Palette” and have created multiple looks based off this palette. This one today I wanted to call the “Brown Ombre Effect Makeup look” simply because there are different shades of brown that create a fading effect.  I would classify this look as more under the night time looks category simply because it is more dramatic and a bit on the darker side for a day time look. Again, I did not include my full face tutorial because it has been the same routine for a while now. It is however like I mentioned before, in previous blog posts. Shall we get started?

  1. First I started right away with my brows. Sometimes I like to switch it up a bit and do my brows first and then work away at my face makeup application.

2. I then jumped right away into my face makeup, such as my foundation, highligher and contour. Look at them cheek bones honey! (The power of contouring).


3. I then went in with the first shade from the palette and applied, “Burnt Orange”, just above my crease . This is going to act as a subtle transition shade.

4. Next, I applied the shade, “Realgar”, and applied this overtop of that transition shade, just to create a more darker effect.

4. I then went in with the shade, “Cyprus Umber”, and applied this into the crease with a fluffy brush. I was very disappointed how hard this was to blend out. It took forever for it to not look so harsh, next time I will not grab so much and just work with small bits at a time.

5. I then went in with the shade, “Red Oche”( beautiful), and applied this with a small eyeshadow brush all across my lid. 

6. Lastly, I went in with the shade, “Primavera” and applied this to the inner corner of my lid, making my eyes “pop”. I went back in with the shade “Cyprus Umber”, and applied this underneath my lower lashes.  I then applied some mascara and added in some false lashes. Also to top off the look, added on some nude lipstick just so the lips would not over power the eyes!
