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.

Cheshire Cat Inspired Eye Makeup

Hey guys!

Welcome back to the Complicated Fashion! I was supposed to post this yesterday but once again life has caused me to back up and not have time. However, this is being published now.

Today’s eye makeup is inspired by the animated adaptation of Alice In Wonderland. There has been so many different versions of the movie as well as the character we are focusing on today which is the mysterious but loved Cheshire Cat.

In the Disney cartoon, he was purple and pink, Tim Burton’s version he was gray and blue. I think this makeup you can do it casually with any color combo. So, let’s teach you guys how to do this makeup!

Things you’ll need:

  • Hot Pink eyeshadow
  • Dark Purple eyeshadow
  • White eyeshadow
  • Baby Pink eyeshadow
  • Black eyeliner
  • White eyeliner
  • Eye glitter (optional)
  • Eyelash glue (optional)
  • False eyelashes (optional)
  • Mascara
  • Sponge Applicators
  • Eyelid Primer

Procedures:

  1. Prime your eyes so the eyeshadow can stay onto your lids better.
  2. On the tip of a sponge applicator, make a line using hot pink eyeshadow from the middle of your eye to where you would normally do a wing, but get the line close to your waterline.
  3. Fill in the other half of the line you just made with a dark purple going towards your inner corner of your eye.
  4. Using your eyeshadow brush or a different applicator, dip it in the white shadow again and apply the shadow from the inner corner of your eye to almost the part of your eye where you will normally apply your wing. Make sure this white goes over the pink so the two shadows don’t overlap.
  5. Using another applicator or a side of an already used applicator, apply purple to the crease on your lid.
  6. Going back to the white area you just made, on your brush add some baby pink shadow and make a slight wing. Your shadow should give kind of an ombre affect.
  7. On top of the purple you applied to your crease, just apply some hot pink right above your crease.
  8. Make sure this makeup goes almost up to your eyebrow.
  9. Line your lower waterline with a white eyeliner.
  10. Take purple eyeshadow and just apply it on your under-eye from your inner corner out to where your pink wing is. Your purple line and your pink line should meet in a wing.
  11. Now take a purple eyeliner and line your upper waterline.
  12. If you are using falsies, you would apply them now followed by a few coats of mascara. If you are not using false eyelashes, just apply as many coats of mascara as you want.
  13. If you would like to use the eye glitter and eye glue to make your makeup more sparkly, make sure you have pink and/or purple glitter that is the same tone as the shadow you already used.
  14. Just brush on some glue and apply the glitter wherever you want on your makeup.

And you are done!

Alice In Wonderland/ Frozen Inspired Eye Makeup!

Hello guys!

Welcome to another eye makeup post. I would’ve posted this yesterday but you know I got backed up if you read my previous post. This post I am going to teach you guys how to do another inspired eye makeup look inspired from pop culture. This figure is Alice from Alice In Wonderland. Although I think this can also be Elsa inspired eye makeup since the colors are identical. This look is very simple so please enjoy!

Things you’ll need:

  • Sponge Applicators
  • White Eyeshadow
  • Lighter Blue Eyeshadow
  • Turquoise or royal blue eyeshadow
  • Black Liquid Eyeliner
  • White Eyeliner (can be liquid or a pencil)
  • Mascara (Use two or more different brands, it works better.)
  • False Eyelashes (Optional)
  • Eyelash glue
  • Blue or white glitter
  • Eyelid Primer

 

Procedures for this makeup:

  1. Prime your eyelids, so the shadow stays in places and really sticks to your eyelid. It’s perfectly okay if you don’t have any primer.
  2. Next you’re going to start by taking some white eyeshadow and applying it on your actual lid. Make sure your lids are all white because the white really does add something to this look.
  3. On a different sponge applicator, take the lighter blue shadow and apply it to the tip and draw a line right above where the white ends.
  4. Take the darker blue on another applicator and go over that light blue line, so it looks nicer and it looks layered.
  5. Take some white eyeliner and line your lower waterline.
  6. Then take your black liquid eyeliner and line the top waterline and do a wing if you want, don’t make the wing too big, but make a small gentle one.
  7. Line your lower eye and make sure the black goes under the white line.
  8. If you are using falsies, just apply those, if you aren’t skip this step.
  9. Take your two mascaras and apply two coats of each. The reason why I like using multiple is because one is to just get all the lashes but the other is for making the lashes look longer.
  10. Take some eyelash glue and just apply it above the blue shadow so it’s closer to your brow, and take some body or eye glitter and just sprinkle some on the glue and on your brows if you would like.

 

That’s all you have to do for this makeup tutorial! Super easy right? I think this can be an Elsa or an Alice tutorial, whichever one you want, I guess.

The Nightmare Before Christmas Sally Inspired Eye Makeup

header picture rights go to @GlitterGirlC on youtube.

It’s almost Halloween! I was supposed to post this tutorial on Monday, however I got held up so I will be posting three posts today! Now, here are some things you will need for this Nightmare Before Christmas eye makeup!

You will need to do your normal face makeup if you would like, but I am going to list the products that you can use for this makeup.

  • Eyelid primer (this just helps the shadow stay in place and stick to your lids)
  • Blue eyeshadow
  • Blue eyeliner (optional)
  • Yellow or gold eyeshadow
  • Green Eyeshadow (a lighter tone and a darker tone)
  • Pink eyeshadow
  • Black liquid eyeliner
  • Mascara
  • False Eyelashes (optional)
  • Sponge Applicators
  • 1 Eyeshadow brush

Procedures:

  1. Prime your eyelids like normal and make sure all the way up to your brow is primed up since this makeup takes up a majority of your eye.
  2. When I did this makeup, I started in the front all the way back, so take a sponge applicator and apply some light blue to the tip and just apply it to the corner of your eye.
  3. If you have blue eyeliner just draw a small line, do not draw the stitch marks until the end.
  4. Now fill in some gold or yellow eyeshadow so it reaches almost the center of your eyelid.
  5. Draw a line using black liquid eyeliner and draw a line at the end of your gold portion.
  6. While you have the eyeliner still out leave a bigger mark for your green part and draw a line at the end of that.
  7. Take a lighter green on an applicator and fill in that box you made for yourself.
  8. If you are really good at drawing shapes on your eyelid, draw some circles on your eyelid using a darker green shadow, or cheat and trace something small that is a circular shape.
  9. On the other side of your line you drew, apply the same gold color you did previously and leave a small part at the end of your eye for your “wing.”
  10. For the wing you’re going to take your blue eyeliner and draw a normal wing except it needs to go more vertical than a regular wing.
  11. Now do a line almost identical to the line you just did and make it more slanted but still vertical.
  12. Take the blue eyeshadow you used before and apply it in the wing that you just made.
  13. Take a thin eyeshadow brush and put some hot pink shadow on it and just rub it on the left side of the wing and on the other side of the wing so it is above the center of the first gold section.
  14. Take a cotton applicator with some pink shadow and apply it on your lower waterline.
  15. Open up your black eyeliner and draw the stitch marks on the black lines and just line your eye but don’t do a wing.
  16. If you line your lower waterline line it also.
  17. Apply two layers of mascara.
  18. If you are using falsies, just apply them now. If you are not, just apply a lot more coats of mascara.
  19. Take your blue eyeliner and draw the stitches on the first line you made and also draw stitch designs in your wing.

Now you are all done!

Harley Quinn (Suicide Squad) Inspired Makeup

featured image is taken from google images.

 

Hey guys! I’m finally updating again, I’m so sorry I’ve been busy with life.

Today I am going to teach you guys how to get that seductive Harley Quinn look from the movie “Suicide Squad” that will hit theaters August 5th! If you haven’t seen the trailers, make sure to watch it! Harley’s makeup is very simple, this is what you’ll need and how to do it!

What you’ll need:

You will need white face makeup (can be anything except the cheap white makeup crayons)

Pink eyeshadow (must be light pink)

Blue eyeshadow (make sure it’s light blue)

Black liquid eyeliner

eyeshadow brush

mascara (optional)

red lipstick

1.) cover your face in your choice of white makeup. This step isn’t mandatory, but if you have natural blushed cheeks, pimples or freckles like I do, you’ll want to cover them.

2.) take your eyeshadow brush and put some pink eyeshadow on your left eye. Make sure to add maybe two layers of it so it’s bright. You can make a little round wing at the end of your eye.

3.) you’re going to do step 2 again, but with the blue shadow. You shouldn’t need as much layers because the color should be bright.

4.) Take the liquid eyeliner and carefully draw a small heart on the top of your left cheek. This step can be tricky, but color it in with the eyeliner so it’s completely black.

5.) On your left cheek but on your lower cheek you’re going to write “rotten.” the “n.” make sure to not write it backwards.

6.) This step is optional, but if you chose to use mascara, put about four coats of it on.

7.) You’re almost done with your Harley look! Take your red lipstick and carefully put it on.

 

You’re officially finished with your Harley look! Instagram your pictures with the hashtag ‘#HarleyComplicatedFashion’ and we might post your photos here on our blog!
