Today's Look: Heat spectrum

This look is not my favorite,but its still okay to me, so I decided that I would still share it anyway. Mind you I have to do my makeup while holding my 9 month old son as he moved and tried to grab everything in sight...haha...I've been using a lot of neutrals since I've dyed my hair bright red, but lately I've been craving more color.
For this look, I used orange,red,hot pink,black,brown,med taupe and light taupe and white for highlight.

Products I used:
coastal scents 88 eyeshadow palette
BH cosmetics 120 color palette 2nd edition

Makeup sharing time! today's look

So, I got an idea, for those days when I just don't have the time to take pictures while I do my makeup and not to mention the time I need to edit the photos. I've decided to just simply share my makeup look of the day =) Its much easier to just take photos after my makeup is done and upload them on here, with that being said, here's the makeup look I wore today:


I wore a neutral shimmery dark brown with a light taupe color and underneath a warm toned blue,with a Ivory color on my brow bone for highlight, then I applied my eyeliner very thin and applied mascara on both my top and bottom lashes! and that's it! look completed ;) I paired it with a matte natural toned lip. This is one of my favorite makeup looks to do, to pair a neutral with a bright, I just love the contrast!

E.L.F. mineral shadow in "Confident"

This is a new look which I created for my aunt, she wanted a new look to wear for her anniversary.It's been a while since I've done any kind of tutorial (since I had my 4th child in last April) and I'm glad that my aunt asked me to make this one for her; its gotten me creating again! yay! I might just start to do photo tutorials once again, since it seems to be easier for me right now than doing a video tutorial. I hope you like and enjoy this look!
