Halloween Look: Mystical Water Nymph

Hello Everyone!

I wanted to get one more Halloween look squeezed in here before the big day. I've seen some really fun and creative ideas out there! Really incredible :-) 

For this week's look- I present to you a Mystical Water Nymph :-)

 
 
EYES:

♥ UDPP
♥ Nyx Jumbo pencil in Milk
♥ Sugar Pill Heartbreaker Palette:
Acidberry to lid, Velocity to outer corner and crease, Mochi to blend crease.
Mochi and Velocity were also applied to lower lid.
♥ Covergirl Shadow in Champagne to inner corner
♥  Brow highlighter shade from Sephora Artist Palette (sorry- forgot the color)
♥ Dark Maiden False Eyelashes (Fantasy Makers?)
♥ Black Liquid Liner and Mascara

BLUSH:

♥ Nyx Blush in Dusty Rose

LIPS: 

♥ Nyx Eye Pencil in Satin Blue

BLING:

♥ I found a bunch of crystals and rhinestones at my local craft store and went bananas.  I used a latex free clear eyelash glue to get everything to stick really well to my foundation and powder (kind of tricky).  You might need something more heavy duty if you are going to plan on sweating or moving your face- LOL!!  I did lose a few pieces over a short time (true story! I found rhinestones stuck in odd places the next morning).
 


 I also tried the look with more of a natural lip color just to see how it looked, and I like it just the same.  Just depends on how you want to wear it, costume, etc. :-)




Hope you like it! This was a lot of fun :-)

Happy Halloween, everyone!!

I hope you have a wonderful week. Thank you so much for stopping by!

XOXO,
Colleen

Lilac

If there is one color that I love to wear year round, it would be lilac.  It's beautiful with similar shades; violets and purples, but it is also dazzling with earth tones.  Lilac is also extremely stunning on a variety of skin tones :-)

So for this week's look, I couldn't resist playing with one of my most favorite colors!


This look was created using my Coastal Scents Winterberry Palette.  It has my most favorite shade of lilac in it (bottom row) and some fantastic shades that compliment it perfectly.  


Also for this look, I grabbed an AMAZING pair of bold Elise (#456) lashes from Madame Madeline.  They are some of my absolute favorites.  I love the sweep and the angle of them!

Very dramatic and romantic!





♥ Blush used was from the Lauren Luke Vintage Glams Palette
♥ Lipstick was Nyx Round Lipstick in Perfect and Bare Escentuals Buxom gloss in Lola.
























Do you have a favorite year round color? :-)


Thank you for stopping by! You are all the best, and I thank you so much for your comments and interest in my makeup addiction ;-)

I hope you have an awesome day!

Beyond the Grave- Makeup From Halloween Past

As I was rummaging through some old pics, I came across this awesome and hilarious look that my husband and I did one year for Halloween.

This particular year we went as ghost servants.  I was a maid, and Babe was a chauffeur.

For the record, he was extremely well behaved during the makeup application. Not really. :-)





My creepy kitty likes to jam!

For the makeup application I did some pale foundation/powder, then hollowed out the eyes with deeper tones and added some facial contouring.  It was a fun look for us as a couple, however I was the only lady at the party fully dressed!!

Maybe this year I will be something trampy. Those costumes are so hard to find!!  lol!

Happy Halloween! :-)

More Halloween Fun- Elven Princess

Hi Everyone!!  Hope you are well!  Please please forgive me for being a bit out of touch the past week- we've had some heavy family issues, and things have been really challenging.  I feel that we are out of the "hard part" so I'm staying optimistic and full of love.  Thank you for your understanding!

So!  Staying with the theme of fun Halloween looks- let's get on already!!  :-)

This week I'm channeling my inner Elf Princess! This look is very soft, innocent, and pure.  This is me paying my kind respect to the beauty looks of the elves of Lord of the Rings and the Childlike Princess of The Neverending Story. (YAY!! I can't smile big enough when I think of that movie!)

Hope you like it!




I kept the look natural with a few exceptions.  And yes- you see me sneaking in my beloved Paperself lashes again!! I couldn't resist.  I adore them! I'd wear them every day if I could!

Anyway- here is the breakdown!
After I completed my foundation/powder and brow routine:

EYES:
♥ UDPP
♥ Ulta Shadow in Naked all over lid and browbone
♥ Urban Decay Snakebite to crease
♥ Sephora Aspen Summit to lid
♥ OCC Saturate and Static to lower lid
♥ OCC Datura to inner corner/ tear duct
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk to waterline/ set with Sephora Aspen Summit shadow
♥ Mascara and eyeliner
♥ Ardell Lashes 120's
♥ Paperself Peacock accent pieces to lower lash/ outer corner
♥ Kimchi Bambi lenses in Green 

BLUSH:
♥ A mix of several of the blushes from the Nyx Crimson Amulet Collection.  No kidding.  I played with them all!
♥ Contouring of cheekbones, nose, and temples was done using the Coastal Scents Blush and Contour palette.

LIPS:
♥ MUA Lip Boom in It's a Situation
♥ Nyx Doll Pink Gloss

BLING:
♥ EBAY.  Thank you EBAY!  The crown was purchased last year, so I don't recall the details- seller or cost :-(  The ear cuffs and earrings were also found on Ebay.  I got two pairs of the ear cuffs,  gold and silver and they were maybe $6 for the two sets.

Note:  I am highly allergic to adhesives and some molding materials, so building a pointy ear for me was not an option. :-(  I had to improvise, and I love the end result! Hey- sometimes you have to work with what you got!

Happy October and Halloween everyone!
Thank you again for stopping by :-)   I truly appreciate your comments and support!

I hope you have a truly blessed and beautiful day!

Happy October everyone!

I thought that I would kick off the month by doing a fun and easy Halloween look :-)

I created a beauty look, but you can turn up the volume on this if you want to add facial embellishment- like nose detailing, whiskers, fur texture, or etc. :-)

Hope you like it!








Eyes:
♥ UDPP
♥ Glamour Doll shadow in Stiletto to crease
♥ Sugarpill Goldilux to lid and inner corner
♥ Sugarpill black shadow in Bulletproof to outer V
♥ Ulta shadow in Naked to brow bone
♥ Sugarpill Poison Plum to waterline and lower lid
♥ Black mascara and liner
♥ Red Cherry Lashes 523's

Cheeks:
♥ Ulta pressed blush in Afterglow

Lips:
♥ Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers Lipstick in Black

As always, the question I get asked the most is what foundation I use, and right now I've been using good ol' Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse.  :-)

 
Thank you so much for visiting!!  I truly appreciate it :-)
I hope you have a wonderful October.  Happy early Halloween!!
