Smokey Cool Toned Crystal Makeup Look


                If the words dark, dramatic, cool and sultry appeal to your senses then you're in the right spot ;)! Stepping aside from my warmer makeup looks, above is an uber dramatic cool-toned smokey eye paired with kissable rosewood lips. Any babes out there with neutral undertones, warm undertones, and EVEN cool undertones could easily pull this bad boy of a look off due to the in-between sorta' shades that can be quite flattering on even those a bit warmer on the scale! Tip the scales to frosty, and let's get blending, love bunnies.


Foundation is a custom blend, I produced 
2 parts of coconut oil, and foundation pigment.
Huda Beauty - Liquid Matte Lipstick, Trophy Wife 

Anastasia Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade, Caramel
To switch things up, and to stick within the range of classics,
I lightly brushed on Caramel to softly define my brows! 
Smashbox - Full Exposure Pallet: M5 (smokey light taupe applied all throughout my crease), 
M6 (suede black blended carefully in my crease, and below my lower lash lines), 
S2 (blended onto my lids with a tapered blending brush), S3 (kept closer to my inner corners), 
S4 (used to highlight my brow bones and my inner corners)
Nyx Cosmetics - Jumbo Eye Pencil, Black Bean 
(waterlines, slightly on upper lash lines & outer corners; used to intensify the smokey eye effects)
L'Oreal Makeup - Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara 
Kiss Products - Blooming Lash, Daisy Lash 
You can, of course, you more dramatic lashes, however, I felt the fluffy
and natural looking one's added a more sultry touch to the entire look!

Remember cuties, April 11th I will be on the ZodWriter show! Mark those calendars!

Smoldering Warm Toned Smokey Eye Makeup Look


                    Ahh, nothing like a bit of warmth to lift the spirits! Finally, New York has gotten Spring-like weather, and I must say it has left me feeling inspired. Now, inspired varies in meaning from person to person! For example, those who enjoy doing avant guarde makeup looks might strive to use more pastel like colors, however for me on the other hand, I get inspired by temperature and my overall mood. That being said, above is my makeup for today which was a smoldering warm toned beauty featuring hues of burnt orange, to metallic gold! Many of the products I used are cult classics (ABH Modern Renaissance), or affordable (Maybelline lipstick) purchasing wise. I hope you love bunnies enjoy!!


Foundation is a custom blend, I produced 
2 parts of coconut oil, and foundation pigment.
Maybelline - Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip, Daringly Nude 

Anastasia Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade, Caramel
To switch things up, and to stick within the range of classics,
I lightly brushed on Caramel to softly define my brows! 
Anastasia Beverly Hills - Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Pallet:
Primavera (inner corners), Realgar (smoked from the lower lash lines, up into the crease), 
Warm Taupe (used to softly transtion all shades together)

Everyday Springy Rose Makeup Look


               ALL women need their everyday main squeeze of a makeup look! What's yours? Can't decide, or desperate for a replacement of your Winter everyday routine? Welllll, I am pleased to say you're in the right direction. This super sweet rosy makeup look is perfect for humid weather, and is perfect for those with cool, neutrual, and EVEN warm undertones due to the nature of rose being an undertone chamelion. For example, rose can be flattering on cooler compelxions, just choose cooler roseses. Rose can be flattering on warmer complexions, just stick with my lead of the mid-toned mauvy rose color, and rose can be perfect for neutral undertones, since neutral undertones can pull of ANYTHING! I hope you loves enjoy, XOXO.

Foundation is a custom blend, I produced 
2 parts of coconut oil, and foundation pigment. This made the foundation
VERY dewy, which to me is perf for Spring time makeup! That fresh-faced feel. 
Jouer Cosmetics - Creme Liquid Lipstick, Petal De Rose
This is a deep cool rose, however it works for my neutral to warm
undertones since it is such a deep color!

Mac Cosmetics - Eye Shadow Pro Pallet Refill Pan, Brun (brows)
Lorac - Unzipped Pallet: Unconditional (blended throughout the crease, and used as an all over color), Unreal (blended across the lids), Undercover (applied onto the high points of my eyes; brows, inner corners),  Untamed (softly smoked into my inner v's starting from the lower lash lines, blending in towards my upper lash lines, and into the creasing of my eye sockets) 
Laura Mercier - Caviar Stick Eye Color, Cocoa (waterlines, slightly on upper lash lines)
Mac Cosmetics - Zoom Lash, Beets Me 
You can use ANY type of mascara you want, but I insisted on keeping the spectrum rosy, or darker,
 so I chose a burgundy mascara!

Marvel's Infinity Stones Inspired Makeup Looks



     Catch the Infinity Stones before Thanos steal's em'! 
I've already helped the Avengers capture all 6, we need all the help we can get!

                Here are my 6 interpreted wearable makeup looks all together in one collage for Marvel's Infinity Stones. Please do know the stone colors are forever changing in the comics, so I followed through to what Marvel Studios is doing in the movies! I hope you cuties enjoyed this series just as much as I did. Below are links to EACH makeup look I've done in the series, along with a short description of my thoughts for doing the type of look I did. When you click a certain link, you will be directed to that blog post which showcases the products I used, along with some fun facts about that specific Infinity Stone! Thank you all for your constant support, kisses XOXO!

Space - I thought of being literally in space, with shimmery colors representing the strong energy this stone contains.

Soul - I thought of how the color orange can be mellow, and how it sorta' "flows", hence my body movements. 

Reality - I thought of how reality can be bold, and blunt, but by the same token we all have to move on, hence the powerful lip color, sharp yet smokey eye makeup, and carefully photographed headshot (the sunlight brought out my cheekbones, and made them seem sharp, thus making me look "strong").

Time - I added a sense of darkness to Time by showing everyone wants to stop it, but there can be light at the end of the tunnel, hence my placement of the vignette lighting effect. This can be perfect as a late night glam look! 

Power - Rather a ton of makeup, I wanted 'POWER' to show me, and emphasize who I am as a person. I kept the makeup simple, crisp, and to the point. Power should not be messed with. 

Mind - With all my looks in this series being so dark, I wanted to add LIGHT! Rather interpreting 'Mind' darkly, I thought of 'Mind' as a way of clearing the mind, and thinking freely, hence the lighter spectrum of yellows chosen.

Marvel's Mind Infinity Stone #6 Inspired Makeup Look


                     Here we are, love bunnies! The last Infinity Stone, Mind. 'Mind' stone is definitely something one has to interpret on their own, as it can have many meanings, and several connotations (dark or light, in example). My concept, which you can see above, was rather different than what others would do. For example, I kept the makeup in the spectrum of light golden yellows, and the overall look rather soft in the terms of wearable glam! This is because to me 'Mind' means freeing your spirit and letting your inner self "show". Yellows and peaches look best on me, so I let my inner self, shine :)! On a side note, I can't believe the Infinity Stones series is over, my loves, buttttt do stay tuned for a blog post to summarize up the entire lookbook of makeup looks!! Love you all, XOXO. 

*Can control someone's mind, although with an extreme hit to the head
the victim will become an individual again.
*'Mind' has been only scratched on in the Marvel Universe. We know it
gave Wanda/Pietro their powers, and it powers Vision. 
*There are 6 Infinity Stones: SpaceSoulRealityTimePower, Mind
*'Mind' was originally stored in the scepter given to Loki. Vision now uses it.
*'Mind' has been seen in Marvel's Age of Ultron & Captian America Civil War

Marvel's Power Infinity Stone #5 Inspired Makeup Look


           While the 'Power' Infinity Stone encompasses vivid shades of light magenta, to deep eggplant purple, I wanted to keep this makeup look minimalistic to showcase the aspects of a "powerful" woman. This means, embracing my natural bone structure, having dark lippies to emphasize the stone's color, and having a slight adjustment of mascara to add a feminine touch to the entire shebang! I hope you love bunnies enjoy, and remember, tomorrow is the LAST stone to be added to my "Infinity Stone Series". Stay tuned, XOXO. 

*Gives the owner access, and power to all energy that will, or has existed. 
*'Power' grant's its owner unlimited stamina and can increase the owner's strength. 
*There are 6 Infinity Stones: Space, Soul, Reality, Time, Power, Mind. 
*'Power' is found in an orb, and is kept by the Nova Corps (intergalactic police), but it was held
in Guardians of the Galaxy at the Collectors base.


Foundation is a custom blend, I produced 
2 parts of coconut oil, and foundation pigment.
Too Faced Cosmetics - Melted Liquid Lipstick, Melted Villain 
Anastasia Beverly Hills - Lip Gloss, Venom
I added the variation of deep venomous magenta purple to spice up a
 plain ol' eggplant lippie! Plus the fact, against my vintage
snake necklace, the contrast is beautiful. 

Mac Cosmetics - Eye Shadow Pro Pallet Refill Pan, Brun (brows)
Laura Mercier - Caviar Stick Eye Color, Cocoa 
 Used on my waterlines, then was smudged across my upper lash lines 
Hourglass Cosmetics - Ambient Lighting Strobe PowderIncandescent Light
Softly blended across my brow bones, and on the inner corners of my eyes.

Marvel's Time Infinity Stone #4 Inspired Makeup Look


              Ever hear someone say "time stops for no-one", and wonder to yourself how true this statement really is? Well, after putting some thought into the fourth Infinity Stone, Time, it has become apparent to me one can fiddle with time, but can't put a watch on it as it's infinite. Moving along with that mindset, I put together a makeup look corresponding to the 'Time' stone's emerald color scheme, with the ideology of darkness since Time is a dangerous thing to mess with, and although in time things sort themselves out, people in general, lack the charisma to understand this, and choose to "STOP" time. Please take note at the deeper meaning of things! For example, I blended the eyeshadow out further towards my hairline to represent an ongoing expansion of time.

             I must say this series so far is BEYOND fun! Be sure to check out Space, Soul, and Reality stone's since I've already completed looks corresponding to each of the stone's attributes! There are only two left to interpret and recreate for me, so always stay tuned, and follow for updates.  One last thing -- know I went into this series with the idea of WEARABLE looks, therefore, an intermediate makeup user could easily recreate these fab and glam tutorials, without worrying about them being too obscure, or too avant-guarde. 

*Dr. Strange used the 'Time' Infinity Stone.
*The user of 'Time' can control the past, future, and present.
*One can loop time, and trap their enemy with the 'Time' stone,
and can form alternative worlds.
*When used with OTHER stones, 'Time' can allow one to be
in numerous points at the same time.
*There are 6 Infinity Stones: Space, Soul, Reality, Time, Power, Mind. 
*'Time' as seen in the Marvel Movie, is kept in a necklace. 


Foundation is a custom blend, I produced 
2 parts of coconut oil, and foundation pigment.
L'Oreal Paris - Colour Riche Lipstick, Golden Splendor

Mac Cosmetics - Eye Shadow Pro Pallet Refill Pan, Brun (brows)
Too Faced Cosmetics - Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Pallet:
 Bless Her Heart (all over color, shade 1); White Peach (brow bones, softening color)
Shade 21 (across lids, blended into crease, and under lower lash lines), Shade 20 (blended deeper into the crease, and smoked outwards), Shade 35 (brow bones, side of nose, inner corners)
NYX Cosmetics - Jumbo Eye Pencil, Black Bean
            Black Bean was heavily used across my waterlines and was used to define my crease further. Basically, I smudged a bit on the outer corners of my eyes, then I blended the product in with my finger countless times until I got an extremely smokey effect. 
L'Oreal Makeup - Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara 
Huda Beauty - Classic False Lashes, Sasha

Marvel's Reality Infinity Stone #3 Inspired Makeup Look


                     Here we are, love bunnies! Infinity Stone number 3, Reality. 'Reality' is in some ways like 'Soul'-- it has its good side, and it's bad side. For example, the stone can alter reality where your simple concept of gravity, is reversed, or the equation of 1+1 equals 2, in the alternative world equals 11. The stone can also do things such as resurrect the dead and distort reality. My view of the stone from an artistic approach is minimalistic, yet powerful glam! 'Reality' is a sharp knife of truth, hence my natural lashes being free, and spiky, and my shadow being a reversed smokey, in a sharp and defining line. The lips speak for themselves as the stone's adaptation in Marvel movies has been made a ruby red. 

     *This stone when used with OTHER Infinity Stones can alter reality
as we know it on a universal scale. 
      *Reality without Time or Space can be EXTREMELY dangerous.
After all, Reality is in more ways than one TIME. 
*There are 6 Infinity Stones: Space, Soul, Reality, Time, Power, Mind. 
*Red Skull had the Reality stone in the 2010 Marvel adaptation. From this,
the stone was given to Doctor Spectrum, who changed reality, where the Avengers
were villains. 
*The Aether holds the stone; The Collector held it.


Foundation is a custom blend, I produced 
2 parts of coconut oil, and foundation pigment. I wanted the finish to be DEWY!
Maybelline - Color Sensational: Creamy Mattes Lipstick, Rich Ruby
Choose RUBY reds, rather orange-reds. For me, to even out the strong
blue-red undertones, I added a bit of Prabal Gurung Carmine Red Gloss
by Mac Cosmetics on the center of my lips! The Neutral (though looks warm)
color balances the ruby tones on my skin. 

Mac Cosmetics - Eye Shadow Pro Pallet Refill Pan, Brun (brows)
Kat Von D - Metal Crush Eyeshadow, Raw Power
Smoked across my lower lash lines into a flick towards
the outer corners of my eyes, then Raw Power was brought inwards as a swoop
on my upper lash lines!
NYX Cosmetics - Jumbo Eye Pencil, Rust
Smudged across my upper lash lines, and across my waterlines.
Lime Crime Makeup - Venus the Grunge Pallet
Muse (soft definition on the lower lash lines)
L'Oreal Makeup - Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara

Marvel's Soul Infinity Stone #2 Inspired Makeup Look


                       Soul -- the inner feelings, and being of one without the capsule of flesh. I am so overjoyed that you love bunnies enjoyed my 'Space' Infinity Stone recreation I did last night! Continuing the Marvel Infinity Stone series, here is the "Soul" stone. 'Soul' is a tricky Infinity Stone. While it has it's power, Soul has a darker side, in which it's able to STEAL the soul of one. Moving away from the comic book version, which portrays this stone as being GREEN, I have formed an orange delight of how I interpret the meaning of soul. Freedom, darkness, and light. All contradictory in meaning, yet a melody of hues. 

           *Adam Warlock was given the Soul stone
 by High Evolutionary to save the world of Counter-Earth.
      *Soul has a tendency to steal the soul of others. 
Warlock eventually allowed the stone to "STEAL" his soul, 
where he lived with friends in the alternative world. 
*There are 6 Infinity Stones: Space, Soul, Reality, Time, Power, Mind. 
*'Soul' is held by Heidmall, of Asgard.


Foundation is a custom blend, I produced 
Equal parts of coconut oil, highlighter, and foundation pigment.
Jeffree Star Cosmetics - Velour Liquid Lipstick, Pumpkin Pie
B’ellegant liquid lipstick in Pumpkin is a dupe
Becca Cosmetics - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed, Moonstone
Softly applied onto the high points of my face SANS my cheekbones.

Mac Cosmetics - Eye Shadow Pro Pallet Refill Pan, Brun (brows)
Anastasia Beverly Hills - Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Pallet:
 Realgar (crease smoke shade, lower lash line definer), Burnt Orange (transitional)
Jeffree Star Cosmetics - Velour Liquid Lipstick, Pumpkin Pie
   Pumpkin Pie was used to form the cut crease, and to form the lower lash line flick adjecnent to the cut crease flick.  Pumpkin Pie was blended in after the product "dried" with a dome blender to reduce the need of more shadows. I wanted to keep the sparkly texture!
Glitterally Cosmetics - Pressed Glitter, Tiger Eyes
Applied on the OUTERMOST corners of the cut crease lines, as well as on the lower lash lines.
You can fully glitter the cut crease, but I felt the half glittered effect BEST fit "Soul".
NYX Cosmetics - Jumbo Eye Pencil, Black Bean
Smudged across my upper lash lines with an eyeliner brush, and across my waterlines.
L'Oreal Makeup - Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara 
Huda Beauty - Classic False Lashes, Sasha
