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.

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!

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

Color Changing Cat Eye

Hello! Today’s look is a color changing teal and purple cateye.  These are two of my favorite colors so I had to do this look.  I had participated in a makeup look contest for Mon Ennui cosmetics.  Everyone who entered recieved samples of the new colors and the two winners got the colors named after them! Lina Blanche, a shimmery white with purple sparkles, and Jaime Noir a black with teal sparkles. When blended together the color changing happens! It also comes out upon adding the shadow to water for a more metallic lavender and teal color.  I paired this look with Lime Crime’s D’lilac since the colors were so so similar.   I used a peachy blush to warm up the cool colored look. 

The color changing magic that is expressed when both colors are blended together

Vintage Pin – Up Makeup : Modernized

Hello!  I got a request for vintage pin up makeup with a twist, so I did that look today!

Makeup I used:

Mon Ennui Cosmetics- Myrrh (dark gold on outer V) https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mon-Ennui-Cosmetics/179910115420725

-Ennui ( peach gold on lid) www.monennui.etsy.com

Dark Heart Designs- Bone Daddy (bone/cream with orange sparkle on highlight) https://www.facebook.com/darkheartdesigns

– Moonchild (pale silver on inner corner)  http://www.darkheartdesigns.com/

Lime Crime Makeup- Lipstick in Retrofuturist (true red) http://www.limecrimemakeup.com/idevaffiliate/idevaffiliate.php?id=1159

I also used a random matte brown for the crease

Milani- Black Liquif’eye eye liner pencil


For this look I kept the eyes neutral, but neutral does not have to be boring! I used metallic golds and silvers to make this look for modern, since the original look involves skin colored lids, a slightly darker brown crease to create depth, and a simple cat eye.  All of these colors were matte.  I love shimmery colors, so I decided to make this look metallic and chic.  The most versatile and expressive part of this look is the cateye liner.  This is the part where you can get creative and it is the staple, most identifiable part of this look.  You can go super thick on the end like Amy Winehouse, or do thin and delicate, gradate the line, make a huge one covering your whole eye * I was considering it*. You can make this very unique by experimenting with colors and textures as well!  Red lips are another staple of this look but don’t be afraid to try different reds or shimmers, or even black *I was thinking about it XD*.


Step by step tutorial

1. place the pale gold on the center of the lid *ennui*

2. use a silver for the tear duct *moonchild* and bring it under the eye about halfway

3. use a matte brown for the crease

4. add a pale cream *bone daddy* for highlight

5. using a dark gold *myrrh* on a small round brush and create a < shape on your eye *for right eye > * buff this color out as far as you like and bring it in a bit to the lashline and crease area.

6. Reapply some Ennui to center of lids to make this color pop more!

7. using a black liner, create the desired cateye shape, don’t forget to lightly trace your bottom lashline and blend in with the silver for a soft line.

8. Add mascara and lashes if desired

9. slightly darken brows- you want to accentuate the intense eye makeup with sculpted brows!

9. choose your wildest red! *if you DARE!* and apply to lips and cheeks.  I opt for a matte color since the eyes have a lot of shimmer. Adding a bit of lipstick as a cheek color is great when you want to match your lipstick to your blush! You also get a very natural looking flush since it does not lay on top of the skin as much as powder would!

10. Finish lips with gloss if desired, or set look with powder foundation

Good luck and don’t be shy to be creative with color choices!

Peachy Princess look ^__________^

Hey Everyone! Today I was feeling in a peachy nude girly mood today! So I created these looks using mainly 3 different brands of products: Lime Crime Coquette lipstick, Mon Ennui Cosmetics eyeshadow in Fairytale & nude jewelry grade crystals, Dark Heart Designs eyeshadow in Ghost Dog from Halloween on Christmas.  How to Achieve this look:

Start off with concealer, apply it in the corners of your eyes, under your eyes, sides of the nose and mouth, blend with your fingers (try not to tug on the skin!)  Apply your foundation of choice, I use liquid foundation and use a brush, starting at the nose and working my way outward in circular motions.  Apply Coquette to well exfoliated lips.  Dip an eye shadow brush in Fairytale, or a similar color that is pink with gold reflects.  Dip this into some water and then paint this on your lids! This is called wet application and will bring out the shimmery metallic elements in a loose shadow.  Take a shimmery white or Ghost Dog, a white with orange and red undertones and put that on brow bone and tear duct.  Using a plum liner line close to the lash line and do a wing if you would like.  Use a peach blush and apply to apples of cheeks for a healthy glow! Add fake lashes if you would like, I used Ardell Glitz and Glam in Naomi because I have little lashes and I want HUGE ONES! 😀 I also added the nude crystals to finish the look.  Feel free to get creative here and express yourself!!

Cute Look

Hi there! This was a look i did for school one day.  I was trying to see how big I could make my eyes look using makeup.  I have pretty large lips and eyes so manipulating the camera a bit gave me the huge doll eyes and smaller lips I wanted for the picture.  I used Retrofuturist by Lime Crime on my lips adn rubbed a bit of that onto my cheeks *this is a great tip when you have a lip color and you want a matching blush! Magic! I learned this tip from Lime Crime owner Doe Deere on her blogazine http://www.doedeereblogazine.com/* and for eyes I took a shimmery white for my browbone and inner tearduct, a silver for my lid, and a matte brown for my crease.  I took a pencil liner in black and outlined my top and bottom lashline getting larger and thicker towards the outside to create the large eye effect.  To avoid counteracting my large eye effect I avoided the inner corner of my eye. If I had smaller eyes I would have only extended the eyeliner to the middle of my eye and blended inward.  A few good coats of black lash thickening mascara and voila!

Purple and Gold Makeup Look

This looks was also found on cutoutandkeep.net as a tutorial.  It involves purlple and gold colors.  These are complimentary colors and they work well together in this look.  I used Lime Crime Airborne Unicorn Opaque Lipstick on my lips and Lime Crime Magic Dust in Nymph.  A purple shadow was used on the outer part of my eye.  Airborne Unicorn is a lovely rich purple that is a stunningly vibrant shade.  Nymph placed in the corners of the eyes is a white shadow that when put on the lids turns into a pale gold, which works well on my skin tone since I personally have cool undertones and do not pull off gold and bronzes well.  This also helps the look achieve balance by using warm colors on the eyes, the purple is a more red purple and the gold is warm as well. The purple lipstick is more cool which contrasts nicely with this look.  My hair has purple and teal feathers and I have a turquoise necklace on! My favorite colors include purple and teal so I like to create looks that use both of them!

Bronze and Turquoise Makeup

 This look was one of the first I did for a contest for Lime Crime and cutoutandkeep.net I used Lime Crime Cosmopop Lipstick for lips, a very opaque creamsicle orange. I find that on pale skin it shows up very orange and vibrant, however when placed on my friend, who is much more tan then I, it was almost nude on her lips and pale. A very lovely shade.  I used Lime Crime Diva on eyes and lined the eyes with a turquoise shadow.  Using a teal mascara flirt! mascara in teal and finishing the look with some bronzer contouring the cheekbones.  My hair contains a fake piece of hair that is blonde with turquoise stripes that I thought fit the look perfectlyTeal and Bronze Makeup LookLime Crime Lipstick in Cosmopop found here http://www.limecrimemakeup.com/idevaffiliate/idevaffiliate.php?id=1159
