Yellow Buttercupcake

I was inspired by a pretty yellow look Zoffee did, though I need to try it again, doing the mascara and liner differently. I have no idea why, but I always feel like Buttercupcake ends up looking a bit dark on me. I always use TFSI so it’s not on my bare skin. […]

Buttercupcakes at the Afterparty

Today’s look was inspired by one that Temptalia did last Friday. It’s definitely not exactly like hers, but it got my creative juices going, so to speak. I played with Sugarpill (affiliate link) of course. Here’s how I did the look. I used TFSI primer. Then with an ecotools shade brush I applied Afterparty to the lid. From the crease to the eyebrows I applied Tako with a big ecotools blender brush. Next, I applied Buttercupcake widely in the crease with a brush like the MAC 222. With  a brush like the MAC 219, I applied Midori to the lower crease and extended it out in sort of a triangle shape. I blended with the MAC 224, gently, in a windshield wiper motion. Next with an ecotools highlighter brush I applied Apparition on the browbone,  and with an ecotools smudge brush I applied it to the inner corners of the eye. Then I applied UD’s 24/7 liner in Flipside to the lower lash line. I put Atmosphere on top of Flipside. I used Tokidoki’s perfetto liner in Sabochan on the upper lash line and UD’s 24/7 liner in Perversion along the lower water line. I defined my brows with the Golden Blonde brow pencil, and then took my stiff angled eye shadow brush to soften the edges. Finally I applied Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume Mascara, followed by Flirt! It Curls Mascara. […]

A Daytime Look with Gabrielle Faust by Overall Beauty

This is a daytime look with the Gabrielle Faust collection by Overall Beauty.  Since these are not normally colors I wear, I felt like I was stepping out of my comfort zone. I feel like the creamy yellow and brown worked really nicely together. There is a video tutorial at the bottom of this post. […]

Saturday Sugarpill Sweetness

Yesterday I decided to wear bright mattes. I put Buttercupcake on my lid, with Atlantic blue on the outer corner and in the crease. I decided the crease needed some brightening so I used Poison Plum. I knew Vapour would be the perfect brow highlighter, but I feel like I should have used something else for the inner lash line and inner v. […]
