BftE Smokin' Wizard's Wand Tutorial

How to Achieve the look: Apply Too Faced Shadow Insurance eye primer. With a fluffy brush, apply BftE Caffe Latte from [...]

Makeup Wars - Battle of the Taupes

•••
I know some of you love taupes! All the Taupes! I'm in a new group called Makeup Wars and for our inaugural war, we're doing a Battle of the Taupes! I raided my makeup collection for some of the colors that I thought fell into the category of taupe. I am not an expert on taupes, mind you, but I have come to appreciate them.

Fyrinnae Damn Paladins

I did a taupetastic look for my upcoming post. For this look, I used Fyrinnae Damn Paladins on the lid, lower lash line and upper crease. I contoured the eye with MAC Nebula.

I was in a bit of a hurry, so this was thrown together in just a few seconds. I used one brush to apply the color to my lid, crease and under the lower lash line (though s[...]

Perpetual Purple and Bronzed Taupe

•••
I have to say I am in LOVE with Perpetual Purple and Bronzed Taupe cream shadows by L'Oreal. Perpetual Purple is a gorgeous purple and you can see the pretty red and blue sparkles in it. Bronzed Taupe is a good crease color, since it's bronze and brown and has golden flecks (to me) and it really works well with the purple. I also used the Maybelline Bold Gol[...]

I used the Makeup Geek eye shadows in today's look. I like the quality of the shadows and they did last all day without creasing. They also last through tears, which is great.
