How to: Carnival/Halloween Look

Hey Beauties,

A few weeks ago one of my best friends visited Venice and gave me a traditional souvenir; a Mask. It is really beautiful and it inspired me to create an eye look based upon it. I think it would be suitable for Halloween and Carnival, for those who do not want to apply exaggerated  makeup.

Step 1:- Apply concealer foundation and powder as needed. Check out how I apply foundation by visiting this link HERE.

Step 2:- apply a light purple color on the lid. I used Essence eye shadow in the color 'In the Clouds'. Simply tap color on to achieve a more opaque color. Leave the inner corner bare for the highlight color.

Step 3:- Apply a dark shimmering purple in the crease and also in the outer corner and blend it out. I applied MAC eye shadow in the color 'Beauty Marked'. Make sure to blend this color with the previous color on the lid for a gradient effect.

Step 4:- Next I applied a light purple shimmer in the inner corner mixed with a silver color for an intensified highlight effect. For the shimmering light purple I used BarryM Dazzle Dust in the color '59' and for the silver color I used the color 'Tinsel' from the Divine Limited Edition Sleek Palette.

Step 5:- I applied purple and fuchsia glitter in the center of my eyelid. I used the fuchsia as a pop of color since the look is quite dark. I used 'Festive' and 'Cranberry' from the Divine Limited Edition Sleek Palette.

Step 6:- Apply a black eyeliner and mascara. I used MUA eyeliner in the color 'Underground' and Catrice 'Fake It' Mascara. As and added touch I applied a silver glitter eyeliner on top of the black eyeliner, I used a Body Shop eyeliner 'Define & Sparkle'.

Step 7:- I applied also the same sequence of colors underneath my eyes and the silver color as a brow bone highlight.

That's the Finished eye look,

Hope you like it, any requests feel free to email us and add us on Facebook HERE

Until next time,

Take Care,

Jessica :)

Nail Polish Reviews

Hello Beauties :)

This post is going to be a review about two nail polishes that I recently purchased. 

The first one is by Essie and it is a limited edition color called Bikini so Teeny. I think it is the perfect color for Summer. It is a Lilac color but with a hint of blue in it. It has a creamy consistency with very tiny sparkles which are barely noticeable but which give that extra pop to the polish.
This is my first time trying out Essie nail polishes and I must say that I am impressed. It stayed on for a week without chipping and it dries out quite quickly. Also they have a wide range of colors to choose from.

Verdict:- High quality nail polishes. Somewhat expensive when compared to other brands but worth it. I highly recommend this brand.

The next nail polish is by Sally Hansen and it is called Pacific Blue. This color is very unique and also ideal for the Summer time. It is a blue color but it is not the usual normal blue that we continually see. It is like a neon blue with purple undertones to it. I love this color!!
As for the quality I was also impressed by this brand since the nail polish stayed intact for quite some time. It is a very opaque color with a creamy consistency.

Verdict:- Great nail polish. I also recommend this brand since it offers good quality nail polish at reasonable prices.
