Seafoam Green Cut Crease


Hello :)

So today's look is something I normally don't gravitate to. That being said, here is a seafoam green look with a yellow inner corner. For a few days now I have really been wanting to use the eyeshadow 'Buttercupcake' from Sugarpill in a look. I also really wanted to do something with greens and blues. So this is what I came up with :)

Simple Smokey Eye - Gothic Glam


Hello :)

So one of my favorite looks of all time to wear is a black smokey eye. It's one of my staple looks that I always go back to time after time again. Not only does it last literally all day, but it also is very universal for every eye shape and color. You can also change the undertones from a neutral (what I have here) to a more cool tone or even warm tone by just changing up the transitional colors. 
One thing I recommend with dark eyeshadow is wearing a base ontop of the eyeshadow primer and all over the area you want the black eyeshadow to be rich and pigmented.  I suggest keeping the base out of the crease, but bringing it rather close. This is what allows it to stay all day. I typically use Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Eyeliner in Black as my base for this look since it has an excellent wear time. 

If you want to do a super fall cool-toned smokey eye like this, I recommend trying Sigma - Elysses and MAC - Sketch eyeshadows. They're very cool toned wine shades, and are very handy with a lot of other looks as well :)

Hope you enjoy!

xoxo Kitten

Red Eyeliner - Look Inspired By Roses


Hello!

So today's look is inspired by roses. I used all pinks, purples, and reds. 
After I heard that Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick's were eye safe and had seen a few people on Instagram use them as eyeliners, I had to try it. Though I know a lot of people have irritation to red pigments,I however dont'. It applied well and smoothly to the lids, lasted extremely well (I had this makeup on for over 20 hours and it never smeared or faded), and didn't flake off. Oddly I almost prefer Unicorn Blood as an eyeliner instead of on the lips since it just doesn't look good on me in my opinion. 

I recommend trying this trick with the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks if you haven't already :)

Weight Loss


Hello :)

So here is something I've not talked much on my blog, but if you follow me on other sites you will know of. I have lost 40 lbs roughly since last November/December. It's a big accomplishment for me since it's something I've wanted to do for the last few years but wasn't motivated enough to do it. I gained a lot of weight due to stress and being extremely lazy my last year of high school and my first two years of college. I wasn't healthy, nor cared if I wasn't. 

I'll admit, I didn't lose my weight for a good reason, nor really for myself. I liked a boy at the time I started questioning if I should, and we had a big fight and ended up not talking for a few months....but I wanted to better myself and look good. So I decided to drop as much weight as I felt I needed to. By no means do I recommend losing weight for my reasons, but I will say I don't regret any minute of it. 

I first started going vegetarian to lose weight. I was eating too much meat compared to anything else and needed to throw more vegetables in my diet and was very aware of it. At this time I didn't eat hamburger, pork, anything. I just occassionally ate meat on pizza and only ate chicken. I haven't been really into eating meat for about 2 years now, but I did eat it everyday. So I decided to go cold turkey and completely cut it out of my diet. My family wasn't supportive what-so-ever about it and just kept trying to make me eat meat and made a big deal about it. I kept with it and just never caved to it, because I was doing it for myself and nobody else. The thing about going vegetarian in my family is that it forces me to cook for myself. It makes it so I have to make a small portioned meal, and have a choice to either eat healthy or unhealthy depending on myself. And if I am going to take 10 minutes making something unhealthy I can make something healthy in that time too. 

I also cut down on my portion sizes and made sure I drank more water. I don't eat much everyday because I don't exercise nor really move around a lot. I typically eat 5 times a day but in super small portions throughout the day. A great thing about this is that I don't bloat as bad either, and just don't feel icky after eating like I used to. It also allows me to only eat when I am hungry, and not stick to the typical "Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner" schedule. I also make sure I drink a lot of water during the day. I keep a glass of water next to me or a water bottle if Im out and about. Even if I decide to have soda, I will have a glass of water next to me because chances are I will reach for the water out of habit faster than the soda. 

To me losing weight is about making it a lifestyle. There's no reason you should have to starve yourself to be 'healthy'. Losing weight should be wanting to improve your health, and when you crash diet or starve yourself you are doing the opposite. I've been there with the crash diets and making sure I don't eat a lot so I don't get fat, but it's never worth it. At one point you cave and start eating a ton and you gain all the weight back. Its better to change your lifestyle than to do crash diets. 

My two cents at least :)

Fall Grunge Look


Hello :)

So I don't know about everyone else, but I'm really wanting fall! With the leaves changing colors, cold nights, and hot cups of tea in the morning.....ah it sounds just wonderful. And don't forget about pumpkin spice everything.

This look is based around the Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadow in Raw Powder. It's extremely metallic and a burnt rust/burgundy shade. In this look I paired it with a dark brown smokey eye and applied 'raw powder' onto the lid. For me I think this eyeshadow would look best with warm toned eyeshadows or browns and blacks. 

One thing I'd like to mention about this eyeshadow is that if you apply it with a brush it's just a big pain in the a**. I really recommend applying it with your fingers so you can pack on the color and get it's true pigmentation. Other than that, it's a beautiful eyeshadow with a great formula. It's a perfect fall shade and is great for those smokey grunge looks we all love in fall :)

Hope you like it!

xoxo

Bittersweet Makeup


Hello :)

So lately I havent been feeling all too well and just overall just don't feel good. So I have been keeping with my faveorite makeup of all time. This look is one I've worn for over 4 years now, and I always go back to it. It looks great with any lip color (black, deep reds, berries, pinks, purples, etc.) and if you have green or hazel eyes, it'll make them pop like crazy! 

One thing I like about this look is that it's both dramatic but very simple to do. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy to add different colors to it to make it a different look :)
---

In writing this is how I do it and what eyeshadows/products I use from my product list below:

1.) Apply an eyeshadow base all over your lid and up to the brow bone
(Too Faced Shadow Insurance)
2.) Sweep a eyeshadow color all over your lid and up to your brow bone that is the same color as your skin tone.
('Urban Decay Vice 3' - Truth with a mix of 'Too Faced Chocolate Bar' - White Chocolate)
3.) Start with a light brown or light grey eyeshadow and work it into the crease in outter V an dstart to create a soft base shape for your makeup
('Urban Decay Vice 3' - Undone and 'Too Faced Chocolate Bar' - Milk Chocolate)
4.) Add a medium brown or grey eyeshadow to the crease and outter V to start adding definition and building up the gradient for the darker colors to come.
(Urban Decay Vice 3 - DTF, Defy)
5.)  Now we will start to darken the crease and start to get our 'cut crease' like shape, but in a soft and settle way. Rock these colors back and forth in your crease and outer V. I slighting blend mine from the outer V to a bit on the lid to give it a more sultry look. 
('Urban Decay Vice 3' - Defy.... Sigma - Elysees.....Too Faced Chocolate Bar - Triple Fudge)
6.) Now to slightly use a very little bit of these darker colors to the outer V and slightly blend it into the crease. Make sure to deposit the color initially on the outer V and bring it into the crease to blend. You don't want a super harsh crease but you want the extra darkness to make the look more sultry. Start with the browns and add just a touch of the black at the end.
(Too Faced Chocolate Bar - Triple Fudge.....Lorac Pro to Go - Espresso......Sugarpill - Bulletproof)
7.) Take a clean brush and blend all the edges to make sure everything is all blended. If your edges are harsh take a little bit of a shadow that is close to your skin color onto a blending brush and lightly blend the edges. 
8.) Take a small brush or use your finger and apply a small bit of white eyeshadow to your inner corner. Also use a small brush and highlight under your brow bone with the same shadow.
(Sugarpill - Tako)
9.) Apply Eyeliner, Mascara, and Eyebrows :)

Blue and Purple Gradient Makeup


Hello :)

So this is a look I did the other day. While doing a previous look (Rainbow Sprinkles) I really liked the way that Sugarpill's Afterparty and Poison Plum blended into each other. I actually almost kept it that way instead of adding the other colors within that look. So I decided to recreate it with this, but added some of Sugarpill's loose pigment in 'Lumi' which let's be honest is probably one of the most gorgeous pigments out their. 

Hope you enjoy :)
