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!


I hope you beauts enjoyed this autumn makeup tutorial!

My Collaboration with Fab-Tox-Beauty

My Collaboration with Fab-Tox-Beauty

Hello there beauts, and welcome to my channel if you are new! My name’s Alyssa and I am a beauty/fashion/lifestyle blogger from Hamilton Ontario. I have recently collaborated with the Company “Fab-Tox-Beauty”, as they are known for their affordable, popular name brand products! On their website, they have amazing products for really cheap prices and I was fortunate enough to receive some products to try out and review for you beauts! You guys know me and my neutral looks, so I decided to do a more natural look for you guys today using some of my products from Fab-Tox-Beauty. I am first going to go in with the L.A Girl Beauty Brick Nude Eyeshadow Palette, which retails for $8.00…. guys…. $8.00 like what!? I was completely shocked at this because the pigmentation is fantastic, and the colours are stunning. I am going to go in with the  7th shade from the left-hand side of the palette, this is a more gold shimmer shade and apply this all over my lid.


Next, I am taking the 4th shade from the left-hand side of the palette. which is a pinky-brown shade, and applying this in the crease of my lids, ensuring that I blend everything nicely together.


I am then going in with the 10th shade from the left-hand side which is a dark brown shimmer, and applying this to the outer corners of my lids. This adds more depth to the look and really makes your eyes “pop”. I then am using this shade and applying it below my lower lashes as well.

Next, I am applying some black liquid eyeliner to the top of my lids, and applying some of my favourite mascara. You can choose if you wish to put on fake lashes or not, I personally did not want to for this look, as I was aiming more towards a “daytime look”.  I then wanted a pop of colour and applied the “L.A Girl Matte Flat Velvet Lipstick” in the shade “Hush”, and applied this all over my lips. Beauts…. this colour is to die for, and it is so creamy and moisturizing on my lips, I am in love. It is the perfect amount of colour for this look. This lipstick was only $5.00 which is unreal, and there is added shea butter to the product which makes it so smooth.






 

” Be yourself today, you look beautiful like that”


I also wanted to mention that for this look I also used some of Fab-Tox-Beauty’s makeup brushes to apply my face makeup. I used the “L.A Girl 3pc Contour Brush Set” which retails for $13.00 in store. This is such a deal you guys, the brushes are such good quality and they are super soft. I absolutely love them and have to say these are my favourite brushes so far. How gorgeous is this finished look you guys! I am in love and want to thank Fab-Tox-Beauty for agreeing to collab with me on this Makeup blog post! Be sure to go spread some love on their Instagram page at “fabtoxbeauty”, and check out their amazing selection of products !  Also be sure to subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already and follow my other social media accounts as well !

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!

Everyday Fall Copper Makeup Tutorial 

Hey, my beauts ! I hope you all had a lovely weekend, I knew mine flew by which was crazy ! But I had a great time ! Was wondering what to do this Sunday and I thought why not capture the fall copper makeup look I promised you guys on insta ! If you are not following me on insta yet be sure to do so, thatothertwin_xo. I am going to be using my lovely and beautiful morphe 350 shimmer palette for this look ! Literally bought it in the mall for $40.00, which was fantastic! I haven’t used it in a while but the colours are fantastic for fall so I might as well take it out and play around with it! Shall we begin ?!



I first am taking this beautiful white shimmer from the palette and applying this to my inner corners of my lids. I love how pigmented each of the shades are!

Next, I am going in with this gorgeous copper shade and applying this to the other half of my lid from the middle and carrying it to the outside of my lid. I am ensuring that I am also blending this in my crease with a fluffy brush.



I am then taking this slightly darker copper shade and applying this into my crease as well! This is a beautiful transition shade that looks absolutely stunning with this look! I applied a tiny bit of this shade underneath my lower lash line as well. I then am going in with my black liquid liner and applying this to the top of my lash line, also going in with my mascara as well. I applied a nude shade to my lips to create a more everyday look that’s gentle for fall! And voila!

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”
