What’s Up With Putty Makeup??

Hello everyone,

I am so sorry for not posting! It has been a crazy past couple of weeks, I’ve been sick for about three weeks, and my sister broke her leg and I have also been working on something super special that I will announce in a few days, but today I wanted to talk about this odd makeup trend that I’ve been seeing a lot of.

I know slime was a huge deal, everyone of all  ages made slime and it was probably the weirdest trend because of how obsessive everyone was over it. I personally wasn’t a fan, but I know my younger sister loved it and still does.

I don’t know if this trend was seen by makeup companies and  they decided to make putty makeup to try to appeal to a younger crowd or what but I decided I wanted to rant about this.

A few weeks ago, I saw Jeffree Star do a video on putty makeup and then I saw Tati on YouTube do a video on it as well, Jeffree Star mostly stayed on one product by Stila and talked about the Heaven’s Hue Highlighter which is a little gummy, I haven’t gotten the chance to go to Sephora to feel it for myself but from what I can see on the internet and through videos, it does look like a stunning highlighter. Personally, I am very fascinated with the fact that Stila as well as some other brands are stranding away from the traditional highlighting formula and they’re going for a more gummy consistency, I feel like as long as the product does what it’s supposed to, then it’s fine.

Next, I saw Tati’s video and she talked about two products from Elf cosmetics, which is their blush and bronzer duo, which often enough is considered a dupe for the Nars duo, and one of Elf’s newest launches, Ultra Pigment Cushion Eyeshadow Palette which retails for $12 and comes in two color options, Island Breeze which is more of a warm tone palette, including gold, browns and some burgundy colors. The other option is Cool Mist, which includes more blue and copper colors. I got the chance to swatch Cool Mist and to me it felt like a satin palette, definitely not gummy at all. But, when Tati posted her video, she was able to stick her fingerprint in there and it molded the pigments!

Like I said earlier in this entry, I don’t really care if the product is gummy or any other texture, as long as it’s a good product and does it’s job correctly than that’s all that matters. As someone who loves makeup and always wants to try something new, I say that this would be fun to try out because it isn’t your ordinary product and that’s something that makes these products so much more different. I wouldn’t be surprised if more companies will start taking part in this putty trend.

 

I am sorry for not posting, I am definitely getting back into the trend of things again!

My Favorite Makeup Products!

Hi everyone,

Welcome to today’s post. Happy May! I hope this month goes well for all of us! This is my final month of school meaning I will have the whole summer to blog away for you guys! Today I was at a loss for ideas so I decided to just show you my favorite makeup items at the moment and a short description as to why I like them.

Face:

NYX Photogenic HD Foundation

I really like this foundation because it feels light on my face and blends so smooth. My other liquid foundation blends chunky and is very obvious I have a ton of makeup on where this is so lightweight. However, this foundation gives me low-no coverage so keep that in mind.

E.L.F. Perfect Blend Concealer 

This concealer covers so much and is only $2.00! This concealer fits my tone and it smells so good, like apricots. I ran out of it recently and have to stock up, it’s the best concealer I have had.

Eyes:

E.L.F. Eyeshadow Lock Primer

This dries quickly and keeps my shadow locked in place and doesn’t crease no matter how long my shadow is on.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette 

I waited so long to get this palette and I am so obsessed with how it looks. I have made countless looks with this palette and it is my favorite eyeshadow palette. I love that this palette has matching colors so if you’re in a rush you don’t have to figure out a whole new look.

Lips:

Estee Lauder Lipstick ‘Candy Shimmer’

I love that this color isn’t crazy dark and it can blend in to my natural lip color, I also like that this lipstick has some shimmer, it’s truly a pretty lip color.

Benefit Benetint Lip Stain

I like to wear this as an individual lipstick instead of using it over a lipstick to keep it on all day, some days when I don’t want to put lipstick on and have it smear on straws and cups, I will put this on to give a nice tint to my lip color and it makes them a little rosy.

 

Highlight and Contour:

E.L.F. Baked Highlighter ‘Moonlight Pearls’

This highlighter is such a pretty color and gives you a super natural glow. I love to put this on my cheeks, nose, cupid’s bow as well as on my brow bone using a small eyeshadow brush. I love that this highlighter is buildable depending on how much of a glow you want.

E.L.F. Baked Bronzer ‘Bora Bora’

I love that this is a mix of different bronzing colors and I love this gives a nice bronze to my forehead and cheeks. It doesn’t work super well as a contour but I use it to give me a nice natural bronze.

DIY Contour Slime!

Hi everyone,

I saw this idea on Rachel Levin’s (rclbeauty101 on youtube) channel and I thought this was a very smart idea. Rachel always posts very clever and easy DIYs and you just sit and wonder “does this really work” and it sure does! I decided to post this slime for you guys because you seem to like the diy’s that I post on here. So I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 Tb of MetaMucil **Make sure it has psyllium husk***

Liquid Foundation in a dark tone (for the contour color)

1 cup of water

A whisk

and a microwave

and a bowl to mix it in

Now here’s how to put it together:

1.) You first get a tablespoon of metamucil, this will help make the slime slime.

2.) You will pour liquid foundation in any color of your choice to the bowl.

3.) Take a spoon and just mix the two together until there is brown clumps.

4.) Add a cup of water to the mix and whisk it all together.

5.) Then you will microwave this for five minutes.

6.) Stop the microwaving process when it has around 2:30 left  to add more foundation to the mix.

7.) Continue mircowaving

8.) After taking it out of the microwave, let it cool.

9.) Then take a popsicle stick and scrape the slime off the sides of the bowl and pour the slime into a container to keep it in.

 

The great part of this slime is that it won’t get on your fingers! The way to get the color out of it is to push on wherever you want the contour slime to go and it’ll stick on to what ever part of the skin. Note that you might need to use a beauty blender and concealer to cover some lines that the contour slime might make once you push it down.

DIY Eyeshadow using Crayons!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to today’s blog post, I’m going to try to post a new blog two times a week so then I can try to get more readers and followers.

Today I decided to teach you guys how to make eyeshadow using three things; coconut oil, crayons and a microwave. You also need a spoon and a bowl and a container to put the finished product in.

If you don’t have a microwave you can light a candle and hold the bowl of product above the candle, that way the product can melt.

You will need a box of crayons (preferably non toxic) that way the product won’t hurt you as bad if it gets in your eye, nose or mouth. I recommend RoseArt or Crayola or another big name art brand. This is a good time not to trust small-name brands. Next you will need coconut oil or vegetable oil. I used coconut oil for mine and it seemed to work out.

  1. First you will need to pick out a color from the crayon box. I’ve heard that if you have metallic crayons those show up way more pigmented than a regular crayon.
  2. You will need to unwrap the crayon. I cut the crayon into small parts and was able to get the wrapper off easier that way, but it still took a good 5 minutes.
  3. Next you will take a spoon and scoop as much coconut oil in the bowl depending on how much crayons are in the bowl.
  4. Next you will put the bowl of product into the microwave for about 3 minutes on the high power.
  5. Once the three minutes is over, the bowl will be somewhat hot so if you can’t tolerate heat, have someone help you with this step.
  6. Once the product is out, take the spoon and stir the additional chunks together that way the entire product is liquid.
  7. Next find a container that you’ll be storing this product in.
  8. Pour the product into the container and seal that container.
  9. Put the container into the fridge and let it cool for about a half hour.

Note that once the product is out of the fridge, you might have to warm it up a little bit to let it get a little creamy for you to use. mine was in the fridge for about 20 minutes and I used it and it had very little color. So I put it in the microwave for 7 seconds on high powder and it got a little more product on my finger. It shouldn’t turn to liquid however.

Now you have your own eyeshadow! I hope you guys liked this tutorial, make sure to share your pictures with us on Instagram @complicatedfashionblog !

Thank you guys so much!

 

Recent Beauty Haul!

Hi everyone,

I hope you all understand my schedule situation. This post is coming out today because  I just wanted to talk about each of the items I got on this haul. I do like every product that I had bought. **Note that this page is not sponsored by any of the companies mentioned.

I hope you enjoy!

1.) L.A. Colors 6 Color Eyeshadow- Almost Nude

I got this product at the dollar store, I know right? I am a cheap shopper, but I do have this palette but in a different color and those colors work very well and is super pigmented. I used the hot pink color for my Harley Quinn makeup. This is a new color that just recently came out and I wanted to try it for you guys. There are all different nude colors with a sponge applicator wand that is double sided and can be really useful for drawing designs on your face.

2. L.A. Colors Trio Eyeshadow- Water Lily

This palette caught my eye because it has a teal-green color with a pink and a light blue. I have another palette also that has pink, lime green and a blue that I use for costume makeup and it has a flower printed on the top. I have not used this palette yet but I am excited because I do love to wear fun colored shadows.

3.) L.A. Colors Trio Eyeshadow- Iris

I love the color combination for this trio which is a purple, pink and blue. I have not used this palette yet but I believe the pink in this palette is the same as the palette I have used which is a nice tone pink, it’s similar to a magenta color but it is a little lighter and has some glitter, but not too much which I do like. I will most likely use this product for costume makeup.

4.) Peace Rose Oil Sensitive Skin Mud Mask- Shea Moisture

I have not used this mask yet but I do have a good feeling about it. This mud mask I believe was from target but it was a gift to me from another family member. I have never used a mask before but I hope it does work out very well for me.

5.) Charcoal Paper Mask- Yes To

Again, a mask but I haven’t tried it yet. I have heard from users though that this is a good mask and does help clear the face up. I do have blackheads on my nose and cheeks and I do want those to be gone. I hope I can use this mask soon!

6.) African Black Soap Mud Mask- Shea Moisture

The final mask, I promise! I haven’t used this yet, but I am thinking of this being my first mask that I try because I have used the facial wipes that are from Shea Moisture and is African Black Soap and it has cleaned my face well and got some remaining makeup off of it which is good too.

7.) Prep and Hydrate Balm- e.l.f. cosmetics

This is the first skin care product that I had bought from elf and I definitely like it. I use it as a substitute for primer and I really like how it feels on my skin. I do wish that there was a little more product though due to the cost of $8.

8.) Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths (2 Pack)- Elf Cosmetics

I bought this because I bought a single pack for $3 and this two pack was only two dollars more and you get double the amount. I thought it would be a better buy. Usually I use one wipe to take off my entire face of makeup.

9.) Blending Eye Brush- Elf Cosmetics

I accidentally bought this thinking it was a regular eyeshadow brush, but it does work as both a blending brush and just a plain old eyeshadow brush. It applies color just the same and the bristles are really soft.

10.) Smudge Brush- Elf Cosmetics

Again, I use this as a regular eyeshadow brush, though I think this is for smudging eyeliner. It does work as a regular eyeshadow brush though.

11.) Essential Lipstick- Nostalgic- Elf Cosmetics

I was in need of a nude color lipstick. I had bright red, bright pink, velvet red and pink and wanted a color made for a natural look because I don’t want to wear bright colors everyday. It goes on super easy with a ton of color the first wipe on.

12.) Essential Lip Stain- Crimson Crush- Elf Cosmetics

This lip stain is super strong. I thought the color would be very faint but instead it’s very strong and bold. I usually wear lip stain as a substitute for lipstick because that way the color stays on all day and doesn’t really come off on anything where lipstick comes off easily.

13.) Essential Lip Stain- Nude Nectar- Elf Cosmetics

Still is super bold. It’s almost the exact same opinion as the lip stain for the Crimson Crush lip stain. I do like both colors though.

14.) Baked Highlighter- Blush Gems- Elf Cosmetics

I have a highlighter in the color ‘Moonlight Pearls’ and I really love it. I’ve noticed that the first layer of the dome-shaped product is very faint so once you wear the product down a slight bit, the shine and the color shows up way more than it did previously. I have not tried this particular color yet as I want to finish my highlighter that I already use, but I am excited for this highlighter use.

15.) Clay Eyeshadow Palette- Seaside Sweetie- Elf Cosmetics

I really like this palette. The packaging was very basic, but inside it has a mirror as well as 5 pigmented colors. I love how it came with a plastic sheet that tells you where to put each of the colors. However with me I use a color for the lid and a color for the crease and sometimes I highlight my brow, depending on how classy I want to get. I do love the colors and think this palette is actually very beautiful. Great addition to my collection, for sure.

16.) Under eye Concealer and Highlighter- Glow/Fair- Elf Cosmetics

I decided because it is cheaper I would just give it a whirl. I really like it. I use this after I do my face makeup but before I start my eyeshadow. I like how it is my color tone and it blends super well. One thing I have noticed though is that you should let it settle before using your beauty blender because maybe I’m just using it wrong but when I put it on my bags and dark circles, I feel like it doesn’t cover that much, it just looks like it has a little coverage. But that could be me just not using it correctly. I have never used an under eye concealer before.

 

That is my blog entry, thank you so much for reading. I hope you guys enjoyed it and I hope you like this blog. I have been working super hard to get this blog to be the best it can be. But it still will take time.

Recent Makeup Haul!

Hey guys!

What’s up? Today I want to write about a recent makeup haul that I went on this past weekend. I went to an e.l.f. store! E.l.f. is my favorite makeup brand because it’s super cheap and their makeup is good quality. I finally got the chance to go to the store rather than their section in Target.

I spent $16.00 there and that actually isn’t a lot when we’re talking about makeup. So in this post I just wanted to talk about these products and review them in case any of you guys are interested.

Product #1- Powder Brush

This brush works very well when I use my powder veil (finishing powder). It is super soft and is a lot easier to use than some expensive brushes. Elf does make a more expensive powder brush that I think might be more expensive, I have the cheaper one that is all black and it definitely does the job.

Product #2- Liquid Highlighter

I tested this product in store and it is very sparkly. I had recently used this product as part of my everday makeup look and it made more oil in it than the highlighting formula. Putting it on my face made my face look very oily and greasy and I didn’t like it. But, I will continue to give it a try.

Product #3- Highlighting Brush

I have been in need of a highlighter brush, I wanted to get one from Elf because it is a lot cheaper. I used it on my powder highlighter and I was so surprised by how well it works. The glitter comes right off the brush and onto my face. It didn’t get stuck in the bristles.

Product #4- Eyeshadow Palette

This eyeshadow palette is a nice addition to the collection. I got this because I needed more nude colors rather than fun bright colors. This palette actually tells you where to put it on your lids. In each color it has a word carved on it ‘base, lid, crease, line’ I found it very helpful because I usually only use one color on my eyes at a time. The colors are VERY pigmented. Make sure to blend well!

That is my haul! Make sure to check out e.l.f.’s website to check out their products and their amazing prices! I am very happy with their products and I always have so much fun using them!

DIY Lipstick using Crayons!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to a new post about DIY Makeup! I know that a lot of people have seen those videos made by beauty gurus on YouTube about making your own makeup without using makeup. Eyeliner, eyeshadow, lipstick, what else? Today I will tell you how to make lipstick using crayons, which isn’t super difficult.

We have posted a tutorial on how to use colored pencils as eyeliner, so make sure to check that out. Now let’s get into this tutorial!

There are several ways to do it, depending on what youtube tutorial or what blogs you read, I will be posting the easy one, considering you’ll need five things.

Materials:

  1. Crayola Crayons- These particularly are non-toxic, so if they get in your eye, mouth, or is somehow entered internally, it won’t hurt you majorly due to little kids eating them.
  2. Empty chapstick or lipstick container- to store your new lipstick in. Can be used in another container, as long as it isn’t dusty and dirty.
  3. Coconut Oil- To moistuize, and to make your mixture not only crayons.
  4. Heat- To melt the crayon.
  5. A container to make the lipstick in

Procedures:

  1. Get a small container, to mix the soon-to-be lipstick.
  2. Unwrap the crayon and break it into three pieces and put it in the container.
  3. Scoop into coconut oil one time and put it in the mixture.
  4. Find your candle, and hold the container above the flame and mix the soon-to-be lipstick together with a spoon.
  5. It should be liquid by the time you’re done mixing.
  6. Then pour it into the container you will be keeping it in and put it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  7. After the 30 minutes are done, it’ll be usable!
