So here is another instagram inspired look by a girl named Tonia who does dramatic, gorgeous look. To be honest, I felt a little drag queeny wearing this out. Like people were STARRING. I forgot how dramatic makeup can be, specially this having a cut crease, smokey and bright colors. I did like it though and I'm trying to awaken my makeup skills because after a period of no-makeup, ish starts looking rough when starting back up lol. But I'll reserve the dramatics for the club, or a lonesome night at home with my dogs watching bad Netflix films...

Heya. Here's another look I did which was inspired by a photo I've seen on instagram.
I've had that app (instagram) since it came out but never used the "social networking" aspect of it, well, never knew it had one until recently and I'm hooked. I love it and I truly can't stand SN media things in general. Basically, for those who aren't aware, it's an iPhone app that acts like Twitter but instead of posting asinine gibberish, you post photos in which you can edit with filters. Lub it.

Anywho, follow me on instagram - cellycell, I'm trying to keep it makeup related so join!
My Twitter is linked to it if you don't have instagram at @MakeupByCelly too.

FOTD: I Heart Matte


    

EYES
UD Primer
Wet N Wild Brow Pencil
Wet N Wild I ♥ Matte Palette
MAC Gorgeous Gold (inner corners)
MAC Passionate (crease)
L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara
Eyeko Graffiti Liner
Ardell Lashes Demi Whispies
FACE
Revlon Colorstay Foundation
MAC Blush Sunbasque
MAC MSF Lightscapade
LIPS
MAC Sugar Trance l/g (le)

So here's a look I played with randomly at night testing out my WET N' WILD'S I ♥ Matte Palette. OH MY GOD. This palette is perfect! I used it again for my friend's Halloween makeup look doing the same as mine and it looked good on her fair skin too. Once I see this in the store I'm definitely getting some for giveaways.

AnyI♥Matteways, the placement is - I used the WNW Peach color on the crease, MAC Passionate on the crease as base. WNW Blue on the lid and lower lashline, and the Purple on top of the pink to deepen the crease and on the lower to unify the look together. Put MAC Gorgeous Gold in the inner corner and when you blend it with the Blue from WNW it creates a pretty turquoise shade (which I did on my friend and it made such a pretty transition). You can always switch the Blue with the Green from the palette to create another fun look.

Hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween weekend :)

SWATCH: ELF Studio Blushes



 
[LEFT-RIGHT]
Pink Passion
Blushing Rose
Mellow Mauve
Candid Coral
Peachy Keen
Giddy Gold



PINK PASSION - Bright, baby pink shade that has a matte finish.
BLUSHING ROSE - A deep, wine shade with a slight sheen of gold specks undertone.
MELLOW MAUVE - Paler mauve color, slight sheen.
CANDID CORAL - Deeper coral shade with gold specks and very slight berry undertone.
PEACHY KEEN - Dirty peach shade, with gold undertones.
GIDDY GOLD - Bronzer-like orange shade with chunks of gold specks.

Here is my small collection of the E.L.F. studio blushes I have accumulated over awhile. These are really good to have in a collection as they are inexpensive and have decent coloring. It takes a few brush swirling to get product on the blush but that's why I personally like it, as it doesn't give you a heavy hand and crazy amount of blush on the cheek. My go-to everyday blush is Mellow Mauve - LOVE IT! I use Giddy Gold to give a bronzer/highlight effect and Blushing Rose to contour a bit at times. I usually take one ELF blush for travel as it's tiny enough to fit anywhere. Product holds about 0.0097oz/2.75g so it's a decent amount.

They cost $3 each and are sold online or at Target. Online is your best bet on purchase because of all the crazy discounts they offer. Right now there's a 40% off offer all Studio line products using the code STUDIO. I wanna complete my little collection.

Anyone have opinions on this product, rants or favorites?

Close Up Images (non-labeled)



I own nothing but NYX pencils and I can say, when it comes to lipliners I prefer this brand over higher end brands such as MAC or Stila. With that said, they don't have the longevity as other brands (say, Make Up For Ever) but they're not claimed as long lasting. I get a good 5 hr wear for outer lining and about 8+ if lips are fully shade in with lipstick on top - less if I'm eating/drinking. Some of them do look similar to one another which is a gripe. The consistency is more on the matte side but they glide fairly easy. There's two textures I've seen, one being the matte, the other a satin. All but one (coral) have a matte finish. I totally recommend these for budget friendly beauty junkies.

Purchase
The long lip liner tends to run cheaper with fewer selections as oppose to the regular l/l, usually $1.25+, and the smaller sizes can start at $1.75+ each depending on where you purchase them from.

Where I've bought are CherryCulture, NYX official site, Ulta Stores and individual retailers/boutiques. But as a tip, I recommend eBay sellers - it ended up being a little less then CC even with their discount (unless it's an annual sale than I would recommend either NYX or CC). Browse around and add tax/shipping to see the best price.

Hope this was helpful.

SWATCH: NEW Wet N Wild Coloricon I Heart Matte Collection



Here it is, the newest edition to the WNW Coloricon 8-Pan Collection family and it's all MATTE!






[Left-DOWN]
BROWBONE - Pure white
EYELID - Mossy green
CREASE - Ocean blue w/ slight satin undertone
DEFINER - Purple

[Right - DOWN]
BROWBONE - Pale beige
EYELID - Peach
CREASE - Brown
DEFINER - Black



Are you excited? I was when I first heard an all-Matte palette was going to be released. I personally LOVE HEART Matte eyeshadows! And Wet N Wild really made me ultra happy with this release.

Overall Thoughts
The shades are true to their crayola colors form - white, purple, peach, green, etc. Although on the pan it looked matte, the blue shade did have a slight satin finish to it - check my swatch and close up on the photo. I didn't experience any difficulties with the colors except with most matte eyeshadows in different brands, the bright colors tend to lean on the chalky/patchy side. The blue and green were probably a little difficult to swatch but nothing to where it wasn't capable. The neutral colors seem to be repeats from older palettes (most noticeably from the 6-pan palettes) although I have not confirm this in swatch comparisons. Is this palette really unique? No, only if you own EVERY WNW shadows they've created. Otherwise it is a keeper because of it's all (majority) of matte texture and it has the best of every color from nudes to bright under one palette. Plus, it's only $4.99 - what's not to like?

Remember, this is being released to off-set the removal of the 6-pan palette which will be permanently discontinued late 2012.

FLIRT! Bronzer
LIPS

Here is a quick look I did in my Las Vegas trip - my camera totally picked up the SPF in my concealer and the Cargo blush leaves me a bit ash (I won't be using that one often). Anyways this was insprired a bit by Kim Kardashian, I remember seeing a photo of her in a gossip mag I had and recreated it to my liking.

I love the bronzey look, very smokey, very Summer! Pop MAC Gorgeous Gold in the inner corner to enhance the look. If you don't own WNW The Gilded Age, any other bronzed brown shade of theirs worked, MAC Bronze is a good alternative too. I can't recall what I used to deepen the brown - I wanna say it was WNW Comfort Zone palette.

Just had my wisdoms pulled out Monday morning.
Being bed ridden with no TV = boredism. Sigh*

I'm not sure what I used on my crease, I can guess and say it was from the UD Naked Palette? Anywho - another FOTD from my trip to Las Vegas going to the Lion King Broadway show. OMG - if you guys have the opportunity to catch this show in LV, go do so before December as it will be canceled, it was the best thing ever! Exactly like the movie but live and beautifully sang. BEAUTIFULLY! I think it's better than the actual film, forget 3D lol. It was the highlight of my trip.
