Sigma Beauty Fall Challenge!

Hey beautiful readers :)
Come with me on this ride as I use this blog post as my entry for the Sigma Beauty Fall Challenge inspired by their Fall Look Book! 

"Five fundamental elements to encompass 1020's glamour: Lavish Essentials, Iconic Brows, Smoldering Eyes, Sultry Lips, and Timeless Radiance" - Sigma Beauty.

When I think of Vintage Fall Glamour...
gorgeous dark shades of lip stains, pearls, wavy hair, thick liner and decorative head pieces come to my mind.

Today, I used Sigma's Fall Look book to achieve this Fall look that is quite easy ! You can follow along by the step by step tutorial to achieve this look and use any colors of your choice:

Let's get started !

 You want to start with a fresh and moisturized face and eyelids.
Here is my eye completely bare: no liner and no mascara.

 It is up to you whether you like to apply your mascara or your liquid liner first. Here, I decided to do my mascara first. Pick you favorite mascara and start from the root and slowly move your mascara wand to left and to the right to make sure all the lashes are getting use of the product. The mascara I decided to use today was Lancome Doll Lashes. A few coats is what I normally use, too many coats of mascara can make your lashes look clumpy and 'spider like' so, always slowly make your way to the look you desire.


Liquid Liner:
I always use liquid online on the top because it lasts a lot longer than pencil liner and it is much easier to apply to your top lid and over all, always looks nice :) Whether you like your liner straight across or the cat wing like I normally do apply it as close to the eyelash line. 

 Eyelid Primer:
Primer for your eyeshadows is an extremely important step I never miss.
Primer is a base for your shadows, it helps them go on smoother, last much longer throughout the day, and you will have crease-free lids!  The primer I'm using here is Urban Decay. This is the only primer I ever use. You can find it at Ulta or Sephora :)

For the inner part of my lid I decided to go with a light gold and shimmery shade. I am using my shadows today from the New Smashbox palette but ANY light, gold, shimmer shadow will do for this look. I didn't want to do my eyes too harsh because I knew I was going to do a statement lipstick. Use a small shadow brush for this part so it's easy to pat it on your eyelid. I picked up my small shadow brush from Sephora but any small brush you find at Walmart, Target, CVS will do :) 

 Outer lid shadow:
For the outer part of my lid I decided to go with a plum shade that looks pretty dark in the palette but goes on light which is good, you can always build up this color as dark as your want but I just wanted a small glimpse of color on my eyes!

 Blending brush:
The most IMPORTANT brush you can own, the blending brush helps you blend your shadows together and leaves you with a finished look instead of having harsh lines where you can see where the two colors start and end. Using a blending brush has the windshield effect slowly back and forth till you get your desired look. Any brand of blending brush will work. If you are getting into makeup, I highly recommend investing in a good blending brush because blending gives you that gorgeous finished look!

 Pencil Liner:
Pick out your favorite pencil liner and line your waterline. to finish up the eyes.

I'm loving this Fall shade by MAC called Rebel and I thought it would be the perfect shade for this look. One of the looks on the Sigma Fall Look book inspired me to pick out this color!

& you are all done.
I decided to dress up the look a bit and shop in my closet and accessories to give me that 'vintage fall look.' I found this headband with a decorate flower and a pearl in the middle and knew this would go great. I found my pearl earrings, pearl bracelets and a long pearl necklace. I also found the perfect vintage blouse I found at a thrift store years ago, it came in handy today :) I used my curling wand for this look as well to get more of a wavy look like one of the pictures Sigma Beauty has!

 & here are a few more up close photos of the look that inspired me today from the Sigma Beauty Fall Book inspired

NEW OPI collection!

 hello lovely readers of mine,
Today I spent another fabulous and relaxing time at The Carriage House Day Spa
and got my nails done by the gorgeous OPI brand & their great colors for their Fall collection!
GERMANY COLLECTION is the NEW Fall OPI collection & I'm loving the darker shades for this season!
  We decided to go for an orange look on my nails since Halloween is JUST around the corner. I actually don't own any color like this in my collection which is a huge shocker! I love that this color isn't too extreme but it's at the perfect shade of orange!

Here are a few photos from their collection that The Carriage House Day Spa has in store for you all for any manicures and pedicures! 

 This is the orange shade I went for to get into the Halloween season!
'Deutsch You Want Me Baby?'

Halloween Tutorial - Easy Skelton How-To!


hey lovesssss,
Today is going to be a fun & EASY Halloween tutorial ! 
I wish there were MORE hours in the day to start making videos but I have been extra busy these days! So, with that being said - I'd like to show you lovelies some pictures step by step on how to get this easy look in case last minute you are in the need for something to do !! :) 
This look only cost $2 ! 
All you will need is white Halloween paint for you face found at Target for $1
and black paint face found at Target as well for only $1 

a few extras I used that may help out as well :
black shadow (any brand you have around the house)
makeup sponge (for easy application)
black eyeliner/ black pencil liner
cheap makeup brush

Now let's get started...

I look a little crazy in this top photo BUT this is how it begins.
Begin tracing circles around your eyes, near your forehead and from your ear to the middle of your cheeks like I did with any black eyeliner you have.
 Then take the black Halloween face paint (you can put some on a paper plate to avoid making a mess) & fill in the areas as well as your nose - you can use your fingers for this part OR use a cheap makeup brush that you don't mind getting dirty. 

 Now you should have something like this. I decided to do the BLACK FIRST before the white paint so it's easier to clean up if I mess up.

 Then grab some BLACK matte shadow (any brand) this is optional BUT this helps keep the color to last longer. So, all you do is dab your makeup brush with eyeshadow and dab it slowly onto the black color you filled in around your eyes, forehead and cheek bones!

NOW, the WHITE makeup part ! For this part you can use a makeup sponge like in the above photo OR use your fingers. You can also use a makeup brush for easy application.
Depending on how thick the cream makeup you got is - start layering it on your face till you get your desired look.


Now, you should have something like this in the above photo! 
I used about 4 layers to make it look extra white!
Then I started to work on my lips for the teeth part which were pretty easy - make your teeth however you may like, you can do them short or exaggerate the look as you wish.
Start working on your neck on the photo down below I took an up close photo to help you see how easy the neck part was.

 & you are all done! 
For the last part you can take a blending brush and just play around with the circles over your eyes to give that smokey look and also around your mouth area and any other areas you filled in with black.  I didn't want it to look perfect so I took my time to blend in my whole face together to give it a messy look! I added a few lines near my forehead to give the 'cracked' forehead look.
This look took me only about 30 mins. to do!

The good thing about these cream face makeup is that they are very easy to remove once you are done! Take a warm wet cloth or your favorite makeup wipe and just remove it gently off your face!

Hope you lovelies enjoyed this post & if you all want to see more of these let me know :)
I hope you girls are having a fabulous week !
