I am loving winged eyeliner right now and especially colorful winged eyeliner so here is a fun look I did using Teal colored liquid eyeliner and gold eyeshadow. This is a very simple look that you can do in just a few minutes once you have mastered the winged eyeliner. If you have not yet mastered winged eyeliner, fear not, just keep practicing, and you will get there.
You can do this look with any color eyeliner, even black if you don’t feel like rocking the bright colors. I think pink, blue, green, or purple would all look great with the golds though. You can also use any type of eyeliner you are comfortable with: gels, liquids, pencils, or even plain eyeshadow applied with a wet brush. It’s really up to you. I like using liquids for winged eyeliner because they create a really crisp line, but if you suck with liquids or don’t have any, you can totally make do with whatever you’ve got. Most of the eyeshadows I used are from the Urban Decay Naked Palette
Tarte has released a limited edition collection of 5 of their LipSurgence jumbo lip pencils for this holiday season and they are calling it Lip Service. This collection is a steal at $29 given that each of these products is normally $24 apiece (so that makes it a $120 value)!
This value pack includes:
- 3 Natural Lip Lusters in Dazzled (pearly coral pink luster), Flashy (bright iridescent fuchsia luster), Glitzy (antique pink luster)
- 2 Natural Lip Tints in Perky (soft carnation pink tint), Swank (light cherry tint)
These shades are not available for purchase separately at this time.
All of the colors in the LipSurgence line are incredibly moisturizing and feel amazing on the lips so I love that about them. As far as the colors, I think this kit has a good variety of shades and most of them will look good on any skin tone. The “tint” shades are a little sheer with a nice amount of shine but not too shiny or sticky like a gloss. The “luster” shades are both glossy and have very finely milled glitter in them so they will sparkle more than the tints. The glitter is not chunky or gritty but the glitter will rub off during makeouts.
Tarte has really outdone themselves with The Starlet Limited-Edition Makeup Vanity, sold exclusively at Sephora. I really LOVE this set.
This set is priced at $52, and is a really incredible value. It includes:
- 24 eyeshadows
- 2 brand new shades of Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush
- Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder in Rose
- Mineral powder bronzer in Park Avenue Princess
- Deluxe samples of Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara and multiplEYE primer
Stila Cosmetics has revealed their 2011 holiday collection lineup. While there are several items in this collection, the pièce de résistance is their Dream in Full Color Palette. It retails for $39 and features:
- 29 Eyeshadows
- 7 Blushes
- Stila Smudgestick Waterproof Eyeliner ($20 value)
- Lookbook with instructions on creating 12 looks
This palette, with its swirling floral shaped pans, is designed to give you larger quantities of lighter “highlight” colors and smaller amounts of the darker “defining and crease” colors. The packaging is super cute, and makes for a really nice gift this holiday season.
I recorded a tutorial of how I created this maroon/brick red look to wear to an Astros game. Since I used products from a ton of different palettes, I thought I’d research some drug store alternatives for the eyeshadows so you can create this look yourself without spending a ton of $$$
