Pop Art Makeup for Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner and I know you want to win the costume game this year! What about trying something different this year with a Pop Art Make Up to take your spooky look to the next level. Trust me, it is easier than you think.

Prep: Flawless Face with Heavy Blush: prepare your skin as you normally do. But this time, go heavier on your blush since it is going to show up through all the dots you will be adding later on. The Jane Iredale In Touch Cream Blush ($17.99) will give you flawless application in one easy swoops.

Use some yellow eye shadow –very bright yellow eye shadow – and apply it to your eyelids and slightly beyond the inside corners. The heavier you go on this, the better! The Tigi Cosmetics HD Quad Eye shadow ($19.99) can help you to get that bright effect, perfect for the pop art costume!

Now, apply black eye shadow to the outside creases using an angled shadow brush to create a large slightly smudgy wing tip. Then blend a white eye shadow on your brow bones to highlight the look and give it an extra pop of dimension. The Jane Iredale Eye shadow Kit ($38.99) has both the black and white colors you need to slay this look!

 

Use the white Jane Iredale Eye Pencil ($10.99) to create a white line along your lower lash line. This is going to give the illusion of having a larger eyeball and now, with the black eye pencil, draw a new faux lower lash line below the white line you just made.

 

Before finishing your eyes, create a more dramatic look with really intense brows, for this, use a black eyeliner like the Youngblood Eyeliner ($7.99) Remember, you are not going to the movies with this make up, it is a Halloween costume so it is suppose to look over dramatic. Don’t forget to go big with your mascara and apply a few coats of the bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara – Black ($16.99).

For the lips, make a statement using the Tigi Cosmetics Decadent Lipstick in color “Honesty” ($12.99) Again, use white to give a highlight that will really complete your cartoon-like look. To finish the lip, outline in black, allowing the lines to taper off on the center of your lower lip line.

Now, the dots!! Using white paint, apply small dots all over your face. Now, Draw black lines to create your cheekbones and side of your nose using the black cream pod. This is going to finalize that two-dimensional character vibe.

Did anyone else get a vampy feel from Selena Gomez at the AMA’s?

We did!

She looked amazing on the red carpet with a sunset, smoky eye to complement her red dress.

Her copper, red infused eye makeup paired with hazel contacts drew us in and left us in awe.

#GETTHELOOK

Step 1 Prime eyelids. Using a brightening primer like this one will help add dimension to the eye.

Step 2 Light cream color eye shadow set the crease and brow bone area. We like Jane Iredale’s Oyster.

Step 3 Blend into your crease a copper eye shadow. Jane Iredale’s Triple Eyeshadow – Triple Cognac has shades that can be used. Be sure to focus on the outer area and winging it outward.

Step 4 Blend the edges with a clean brush.

Step 5 Use a red shadow to build definition on top of the copper hue. We like the darker shade in TIGI Cosmetics – Flawless.

Step 6 On the lid, layer another red shade. You can play with the types of reds you would like to use. In Selena’s look, there are many red-wine colors used. Youngblood in Bordeaux can be used.

Step 7 Make sure all the shadows are blended. Use the same shadow as in Step 6 to line the lower lash line. Line the inside of the lower lash line with a burgundy eyeliner or black if preferred.

Step 8 Use a volumizing mascara and voila!

Would you try Selena Gomez’s look? #WeWantToKnow

Tutorial Tuesday – Gel Eyeliner

You will be shocked at how easy it is to create your own gel eyeliner without shelling out the extra cash. Hold any lighter to a typical pencil eyeliner for 2 seconds. Be careful not to exceed this time as eyeliner melts fast! Let the liner cool a bit and then apply. It will glide on extra smooth! TT-Gel-Liner

Quick Beauty Tip – Prevent Lipstick On Your Teeth!

quicktip-makeup-on-teeth Have you ever chatted someone up and realized hours later that you had bright red lipstick all over your teeth? That is mega embarrassing and screams “hot mess”. Next time applying, or reapplying lipstick stick your finger in your mouth and pull it right out. This will swipe the excess lipstick from under your lips and prevent lipstick teeth. Remember this!

Fall Makeup Trends

  • The virtual opposite of the orange-y eye look is this purplish, brown style. Combine eyeshadows to create a perfect shadow on your lid to pull this one off. This will go with any fall outfit and can be dressed up or down.

Get Her Look – Sarah Hyland

Sarah Hyland plays the cute little airhead on Modern Family. The reason we’re so intrigued by her look is because she is in her 20’s and plays a teenager. Plus, she looks younger than her character even is! She must be doing something right. Here is how to shave years off of your age with makeup:

GTL-Sarah-Hyland-top

 

1. Exfoliate. We have said this a million times before and we will say it again. Exfoliate to give your skin a fresh, polished look. 2. Tone. Add a toner to remove any remaining impurities. This will ensure your skin appears smooth and flawless. 3 Moisturize. Add moisture back into your skin. You will want this as a base before adding makeup. This will also give your skin the underlying glow that it needs to appear years younger.

4. Foundation. Use a tinted, moisturizing foundation as your base. This will start to give you some color while adding even more moisture. 5. Conceal. Use a brightening concealer under your eyes and to cover any dark spots or hyperpigmentation.  GTL-Sarah-Hyland-bottom 6. Eyeshadow. Use neutral tones for a younger look. The more natural you keep your colors the less heavy and aged your makeup will appear. 

7. Blush. Finish off your look with a pretty pink blush. Keep it super light to give your self a dewy, flush look. Darker blush can make your cheekbones look accentuated giving you an older appearance. 8. Eyeliner. Use eyeliner for your top lid only. Keep it off the bottom to keep your skin clearer. 9. Lipstick. Finish your look with almost nude lips. Be sure to  use a lipstick with natural oils so your lips stay moisturized.

Quick Beauty Tip – Avoid Build Up In Your Laugh Lines

It is certainly one of the happiest types of wrinkles you can have, but laugh lines are not as pleasant looking as they sound. The tiny creases that we get as we age from smiling and laughing around our mouths also tend to collect our foundation and bronzer making themselves even more apparent. In order to combat this buildup, apply foundation and bronzer, then puff out your cheeks and swipe the areas with a cotton swab. This will take out any excess makeup and allow you to live, love and LAUGH!
