May I remind you that I'm not wearing anything on my face, cheeks, or lips. My main focus was the eyes and I'm sure as hell gonna wear this look when Victor comes down. Mmhm. ;) HAH! I'm kidding...
To create this look I used the Coastal Scents Neutral Palette [please don't ask me what I used, I just said it]. You could even substitute the brown for another color to create another smokey look [example: blue, purple, etc.].
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me. Though I think this tutorial is pretty self explanitory. :) Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!
I WISH ALL OF YOU A HAPPY NEW YEAR. DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE & I'LL SEE YOU ALL NEXT YEAR. <33

I tried to replicate this inspirational look as best I could, but I failed to do so. I found this picture on Google [searched: sephora model]. I was almost almost almost thinking of doing this look for L's 2nd contest but after seeing the other entries that have already been submitted, I realized this isn't "runway" enough. But since I haven't done any looks in a while, due to my sickness, I just felt like playing with make-up for my own pleasure. :)
eyeshadow on my right eye doesn't look blended. not cool. :[
can you tell i'm not wearing any foundation?
you can really see the uneven skintone :[

My sickness was bearable on Christmas Eve but it got so bad today that the sinus pressure was getting to the back of my head and it started hurting real bad. I couldn't even blow my nose without that throbbing feeling in my brain. Bleeeegh, it sucks.
Moms gave me theraflu and I tried to sleep on it but I already took a nap prior to drinking it so I was wide awake by then. I'm still in bed right now but the theraflu helped out a little.
Let's hope for a better tomorrow. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. [:

She sent me free mineral make-up samples so I could do a testimonial on them and even do a couple of looks for you ladies. I just wanted to show you ladies how amaaaaaazing these colors are.
I did a FOTD using JLC and I [100x] love love love their mineral make-up. The consistency of their eyeshadows/blush is so smooth. It glides on so well when applied wet and it doesn't leave that chunky residue on your eyelids [MAC pigments tend to do that to my eyelids sometimes].
→ Colors are vibrant [especially when applied wet]
→ Long lasting colors
→ Great consistency
→ All colors are very versatile [could be applied to eyes or cheeks]
→ Colors aren't overly shimmery which I love. It has a nice satin finish to it.
→ None that I can think of.
Since these samples were given to me to do a review, I don't know much about pricing. I can't say what I don't like about it personally, but with the overall product itself, I give it a 5 out of 5! :D
UDPP as primary base
Sakura e/s applied wet [mixing medium] all over lid & outer lower lashline
Cocoa e/s applied wet on outter corner
Mambo blush applied on crease [yes, I said blush]
Vanilla e/s as highlight
Mimoza e/s on inner lower lashline

So last night I decided to attempt my first picture tutorial. I never realized how much hard work this could take considering all the steps I had to do to create this look. And plus watermarking my pictures and typing up the instructions takes up a lot of time too. I hope you ladies like it. Tell me what you think!! [: BTW, I used my 56 piece Coastal Scents palette to create this look.
