IMATS Vancouver

Ok, I gave in and did the make up look that is on the main page for IMATS Vancouver here. I just did the face part, I wasn't so inclined to do the entire neck and shoulder part. Also, I'm pretty sure they used an airbrushing machine for that part, else it would have taken awhile to do. Anyways, here is my interpretation of it! I really enjoyed doing this look and being more creative than usual. I might have to do this again for a theme party sometime.

New York Fashion Week

Last week was the yearly anticipated NYC Fashion Week. As I was browsing through one of my online make up site: Temptalia, I came across this runway look from Gwen Stefan's LAMB collection. So, I decided to do my own spin on it. I went a little more dramatic for the eyebrows and did a more smaller pout with my lips. Overall I really liked it. It kind of turned out looking more Geisha-esq, but it was a fun look to play with. Remember, be creative as you'd like! Don't like it, wash it off later :D

any red lip liner (make sure to color in your lips after lining)

D&G Inspired

I was reading a magazine the other day and this look I had to do. I love the make up ofold Hollywood and I love Scarlett Johansson, so it was a no brainer to try this look. It's pretty simple, although doing perfect red lips can be tricky. Just follow my lip tricks and doing a red lip won't be as scary as you thought. I also debated putting this look up because I wasn't as happy I thought I would be with the look. However, it is a good look for simple eyes and bold lips. A tribute to the 1940s Hollywood :)

1) concealer to mute out all lipcolor
2) Any red lipliner, fill in after you line the lips (this will make the color last longer) and make sure to excentuate the cupid's bow for that perfect pout!
3) MAC Russian Red lipstick or you can use any blue tone red lipstick (blue tones make your teeth look whiter, whereas the orange/yellow tones make your teeth look more
4) clear lipgloss-- you can skip this step if you want a more matte look.
5) Finally, go around your lips with your concealer (use a small angled brush with hard bristles) to add precision to your lips and make it look more clean.

Green Smokes

I have absolutely fallen in love with my MAC Greensmoke eyeshadow. There is something about the combination of greens/golds that really bring out the green in hazel eyes. Enjoy!
