EOTD: Color Blocking! and DIYcolored eye liner?

Hey girlies! OK... So this by far has to be one of my favorite looks I've done. Mainly because of the bright blue eyeliner (Which I DIYed myself) and just how these colors look together. So here it is...

I of course used my Manly palette.
 First things first! Primed my eye and continued on with wetting my brush with mac fix +, picked up some matte orange from the palette and started to pat it all over my lid. Next I blended the brightest red into my crease and blended that out with a shade or two lighter than my skintone color. The I applied a shimmery purple along my bottom lash line, applied my lashes and covered up the glue with a black liquid eye liner of course!  I used a fix+ to wet down a small concealer brush (you can use an eyeliner brush) and I dabbed it into a bright bright royal blue from an old elf palett I had until the pressed eyeshadow became more of a liquidy consistantcey. Almost liquid liner like. The I applied it onto my upper lash like just like how I usually do with black liquid liner and winged it out. I've been dying to get my hands on a bright blue liquid eyeliner recently but I haven't found one that meets my expectations tehe :) But this worked amazing for me and I felt like the bright blue made my brown eyes pop. I'm excitied to see what other colors I can use to make a liquid eyeliner with! 
Anywho it's just something I discoverd for myself recently (it's probably been discovered before that I didn't know about lol) and I thought it was fun hehe 
Love you guys thanks for reading!

REVIEW: Queen Helene The Orignal Mint Julep Masque

Hey ladies! I have another review for you guys today, it's the Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque. 
First of all I have never heard of this EVER! Until my husband picked this up at Walgreens about a month and a half ago for $5.99. So I decided to look it up on blogs and Youtube and I found that everyone was raving about this product so I was super happy to try it out. 

First Impression:
It comes in an 8oz. bottle (I'm not sure if it comes in any other sizes) It has a screw on cap and it standsup up with the opening on the bottom. The opening is pretty big as well so you can get a lot of product out. The masque smelt A-MAZING! It's a minty smell but it's not over powering. The texture of it was smooth, it wasn't lumpy or bumpy and the color of it is light green.

What it claims:

The directions/ ingredients:

My skin type, I consider to be is combanation/ oily. I don't have a lot of acne  (but I do when it's that time of the month >:( ) I have a LOT of black heads on my nose and I have large pores where most people tend to get them, your upper cheeks right under your eyes. 

So I applied it as directed (evenly) through out my face. I noticed that it dried up really fast and leaving your skin feeling fresh and tight. I decided to leave it on for 15 minutes first to see how it worked  and once I washed it off my skin already seemed refreshed and healthy. I noticed that it does shrink your pores instantly but as far as acne and black heads it would take time. 
The next day, I decided to leave it on over night to see how that would work. Once and again I applied it as directed. After about a half hour the smell of mint went away and a almost burnt rubber smell started to appear! It is not soooo noticeable that you wanted to take it off (plus your going to be sleeping right? lol ) but it was a complete change from the mint. The next morning I woke up and I noticed a pimple I had on the side of my cheek increasing in redness and size and throughout the week I noticed my black-heads disappearing! 

Pros: It does what it says! Smells great if you love minty smells, leaves skin feeling refreshed and soft.
Cons: The only thing I can think of is it clogs up in the tube so you have to smash it around in the tube before applying sometimes, it smells like burnt rubber and that it can sting your open skin; such as scratches.

Overall I love this product and yes I will buy it again! It comes with a lot of product so I probably won't have to be buying more anytime soon though. 
Have any of you tried this? Do you ladies like it? 

Thanks for reading!

Hey ladies! So I've been looking for a fun bright pink lippie that I can have fun wearing! I love wearing red, wine, peach or nude colors but I'm not such a fan of pinks because I feel like they don't suit me as well. Some woman can rock these colors like every day (cough cough Candy cough ;D) but i decided to pick up MAC's lipstick in "Lickable" just to give it a go. I think I'll be doing a look with it soon :)
But any who, here's a little sneak peek of how it looks on me. Oh btw I'm doing this post off my phone so sorry if it's a but strange :/

Hope you ladies are doing wonderful!

Guest Blog: Confidence Through Fashion for Cancer Patients By: Jackie Clark

Women are strong, confident, and incredibly resilient. Women battling cancer have all of these qualities, in addition to an incredible ability to persevere and fight against adversity. Women suffering from breast cancer, mesothelioma, or any of the myriad of tragic illnesses affecting women today have the tenacity and drive necessary to get through each day with integrity and strength. However, throughout treatment and the ensuing struggles after a diagnosis, it can be unfortunately all too easy for women to neglect their femininity. Believe it or not, female cancer patients can easily find strength through fashion and beauty, which increases confidence and aids in boosting your everyday morale. Every woman wants to feel beautiful, and female cancer patients are no exception. With a little help from makeup and fun fashion accessories, women affected by cancer can easily boost their confidence and brighten their day.

Women struggling with cancer may have a hard time finding the motivation to put on a full face of makeup or coordinate a high fashion inspired ensemble. However, there are several simple and easy ways to add a pinch of glam without hours of work to your day-to-day look, thereby increasing your confidence and giving you a feeling of feminine strength. To combat feelings of hopelessness or sadness, try adding color to your look. A bright blush and lipstick combo can bring life and joy to even the most tired of faces, and shirts or accessories in similar cheery colors can also help to lift your spirits.

If you are close to a woman who is battling cancer, consider a beautiful gift such as a red lipstick or pink scarf. Thanks to the efforts of many charitable fashion and beauty companies, there are several gifts that will not only brighten the day of the cancer patient in your life, but also go to benefit cancer or mesothelioma research. Look for beauty products and fashion items with the pink ribbon logo - this means that the company will donate a portion of all proceeds to breast cancer research, which means that your beautiful gift will go to help more than just one woman affected by cancer.

EOTD: Cut Crease: Amp Up the Lime

Hello lovely ladies! 
I know I've been doing a lot of eye looks but it's something I want to still continue with so sorry if it's not your fav :/
This is actually the look I'm wearing today! Yes today... not a few weeks ago like my old posts lol. It's a bright lime green lid and a dark, forest green, cut crease. I didn't come up with these colors on my own, it was actually in a duo eyeshadow compact by Loreal. I've had this for so long and only used it about once or twice, but the front name is rubbed off. I think it's the Eye Bright Duo's by Loreal I believe... and the the name is called Ritous. 

Now since my hair has been black, I feel like I have to amp up the color with my eye shadows just for them to stand out any. Plus I think it's a fun contrast. 
I have a few more colorful looks for you guys and some Valentine's looks as well!
Have a great day everyone!

EOTD: Upside Down Sunset

Hello! So today I have a sunset inspired eye... except it is more like a upside down sunet... lol you'll see. 

I wanted to use warm colors on my eyes (just because I miss summer that much) But I was really feeling purple that day as well so I had to throw them all together!
So I used the Manly Palette I reviewed HERE because it is one of my only palettes with a ton of bright fun colors. I used a shimmery bright purple out of the purples the palett comes with and patted that all over my lid. Next I used a bright magenta and put that into my crease and blended the two colors well so that they made a good transition into each other. Next I used The matte orange in the palette as a fun transition from the magenta to the highlight color on my brow ORB by MAC. And last added the purple along my bottom lash line. The main key of this look was BLEND! I also used these shadows wet using elfs set and mist along with there eye shadow primer which is one of my holy grail products!
Hope you ladies enjoyed! 

as you can see I'm still in the process of changing my blog around so please excuse the mess :)
