Allison Harvard/ Alli Cat makeup look

Hey everyone! I love Allison Harvard and we look kind of similar so I’ve been trying to emulate some of her looks that she has done.  I was particularly inspired by the motion editorial from cycle 17 All Star Season. I liked the bold cat eye with a  warm brown and nude lip.

Lime Crime : http://www.limecrimemakeup.com/idevaffiliate/idevaffiliate.php?id=1159

How to get this look for yourself:

1.  apply foundation & concealer

2.  using your favorite black liner * I love Milani’s Liquif’eye eyeliner in black* and starting from the inner corner of your eye and flick it outward to a precise point and bring a thick line on the top and bottom of your eyes and create another angled point near the edge of your eyebrow.

3. Darken brows if needed

4. Take a matte brown eyeshadow and apply above the liner to the crease and extending to the edge of the wing.

5. Add a matte white/beige shadow to the browbone

6. Add a nude lipstick to the lips (I used Lime Crime Coquette)

7. Put a shimmery pink blush to the apples of the cheeks

8. Add fake blood if desired!

DONE!

Colorful Winter Wonderland Submission and Tutorial

When I think of a colorful winter wonderland, I think of pastels and metallics.  The spatter of color is reminiscent of the way snow flakes fall on you when you are walking around on a fresh winter day. The lashes are coated in white also representing snowflakes collecting there during a snowstorm! The pastel colors are from the inspiration of a sunrise on a winter day with snow around, everything is softened so dramatically with the snow in its presence. The rhinestones are representative of the way fresh snow glistens when the sun reflects off of the ground.

For this look I went very organic with shapes and soft blended colors in the lips and eyes to obtain a seamless mesh of pastel colors to represent the way the sky blends colors.

How the look was created :

Face: L;Oreal true match foundation in c1 Alabaster all over face blended well.  Lime Crime Magic Dust Shadows in Mirror Mirror *silver*, Empress *dark purple*, Twilight *pale purple*, Mon Ennui Cosmetics shadow in Gold Digger *mustard gold* tapped onto face for spattering pattern.  Apples of cheeks has Mon Ennui Cosmetics shadow in Fairytale *pink gold*

Eyes: Wet application of Dark Heart Designs shadow in Jadis *white silver duochrome with aqua sparkles* all over eyes.  Using the BH 120 color palette, I took a matte dark magenta/purple and applied to the crease, extending to part of the browbone.  Took another color from the BH palette a periwinkle and applied to the outer browbone section, blending with the magenta.  Took an pale aqua from the BH palette and applied to inner part of eye.  Took Dark Heart Designs shadow in Absinthe and applied to center of lid.  I then took the blue colors from the BH palette and colored my brows. Took Milani Liquif’eye liner pencils in black, silver, and gold.  I created a large wing on the top lid with black and brought it under the eye.  The silver was placed in the inner corner of the eye, extending into a point where the nude crystals from Mon Ennui Cosmetics were placed. The silver was also brought out to where the second crystal was placed.  The gold was used to accentuate the tear duct area.  Lash Stilletto by Maybelline was used in 3-4 coats on lashes and while wet, Mon Ennui Cosmetics eyeshadow Lina Blanche was patted onto lashes thickly * a white with pale purple undertones*

Lips: Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick in D’liliac on outer lips, then applied Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick in Airborne Unicorn to center lip.

I hope you enjoyed my look! I had a lot of fun pushing my creativity to make this look! XO
