FABULOUS FREES from Style Boutique! My Makeup Look for the Grand Opening

A few days ago I wrote about Style Boutique and there Grand Opening (click here). The store was so adorable and cute and they had so many FABULOUS things, I was one of the lucky ones to have received free things! 😀

I even mentioned that I would share my makeup look that I wore that day. I like to call this look a VAMPY look just because of the harsh winged eyeliner with dark berry lips.  First I will show you how I achieved my makeup look then I will go on and show you all the GLAMROUS things I was given. Below you’ll find the pictures so keep on reading…

 

The Vampy Makeup Look:

Vampy I’d say

To get this look I used two eye-shadow pallets, the first one was the Too Faced “Matte Eye Shadow Collection” and the second one is the “Naked 2” Urban Decay pallet. I will go to explain the colours that I used and which brushed I used to apply them. First let me show you the pallets…

The colours from top to bottom (left to right):

  • Tufted Suede (used it)
  • Chinchilla (used it)
  • Coffee Bean
  • Velveteen Bunny (used it)
  • Pebbles
  • London Fog
  • Fresh Linen
  • Vintage Violet
  • Midnight

The “Naked 2” pallet from Urban Decay has 12 colours, and out of those 12 I’ve used 3 colours for this look. In the picture bellow you will be able to see the swatch colours.

The swatches from left to right:

  • Snakebite
  • Half baked
  • Foxy

 

For this look I used one of my favorite lipsticks that I tend to use for special or GLAMROUS occasions, and the Grand Opening of Style Boutique is a GLAMROUS EVENT.  That is why I had to take out my secret weapon MAC lipstick “What Joy!” satin finish. Sadly this colour was part of their Winter2012 limited edition line, luckily if you like this colour MAC had a lipstick called “Diva” that in their permit line that is close to it.

I just love the berryness (I know that isn’t a word) of this lipstick and it goes great with all skin tones!

I only applied bronzer to my face using MAC “Raizin” blush in matte finish. I didn’t use any pinks or peaches on the apples of my cheeks because the lipstick did the job and brought the colours out of my cheeks.

How to apply this makeup look:

  1. From the Too Faced pallet apply the colour Chinchilla all over your eyelids til your crease using the Sephora “all over shadow brush
  2. Just to the crease apply Coffee Bean from the Too Faced pallete and blend it out wards and lower lashes using the MAC 224 brush
  3. Using the MAC brush 217 apply Velveteen Bunny from the Too Faced pallet on to your brow bones
  4. Where the eye-shadows Chinchilla and Coffee Bean blend in Snakebite with the MAC 217 brush
  5. Right under your eyebrows apply Foxy from the Naked 2 pallet using the MAC  219 pencial brush
  6. With the same brush apply Half Baked to the inner corners of the eyes
  7. Then I applied my foundation, conceler and presspowder
  8. After that I applied the MAC blush Raizin to my cheek bones and softly blended it into the apples of my cheeks and forehead using Mikyajy Blusher Brush
  9. Lastly I applied the lipstick What Joy! on to my lips

 

Now lets us go to my second part of this blog post, the FABULOUS things that I got from Style Boutique. They are lovely and to die for, plus you have to go and check out their collection or you’ll be missing what’s new in fashion that’s FUN-FRESH and EDGY.

I LOVE this top and the details that is on the bottom. It’s so CUTE you can either dress it up or dress it down. Here I decided I was going to dress down because it was the morning and I was off to university. I wanted to keep it fun with and edgy which results it to be FUNKY! This is something totally new for me, but hey I am young I can do fashion “mistakes” and get away with it. 😀

  • Purple bag: Miu Miu

 

Valentine’s Day came and I wanted to wear something different. I didn’t want to wear any reds, pinks or whites I wanted to go on a different track. That is when I felt the need to go and be FABULOUS for this LOVE day and have fun and dress in the way that I love. After all I am a fashion lover so more than any other day I HAD TO show it on this day. How better to show my love for fashion than wearing this GLAMROUS gold and black blazer that was long at the back that has black chiffon. It was perfect! To check out more about my V-Day click here.

  • Scarf: Zara
  • Black flats: Chanel

 

I had to go early into school because I had some things to do before I went into my class that morning. I just had so much to print out. The problem was that I didn’t have time to pick out what I wanted to wear the night before! So when I woke up that morning I was all over the place trying to get ready, I knew I wanted to wear my flats from Style Boutique but I wasn’t sure with what. Then I told myself my safest bet would be that I wear jeans because they mostly go with everything. At this point I would like to believe that I was right. 😀

Primers and Concealer!

From left to right:

  • Make up For Ever: HD High Definition Primer (Green)

There are many different primers out there for different reasons. The most famous ones are the primers that hide PORES. However due to hormones and the sun we get redness around our face, and that is when a GREEN primer becomes handy. I REALLY enjoyed using this primer under; tinted moisturizer, press-powder and concealer. It worked amazingly! Not only did it hide the redness on face but it kept my face SUPER hydrated. The plus thing about this is that a little dote goes a long way! When I run out of this product I have to RUN and get it AGAIN!! 😀

  • Sephora Concealer: Medium 07

I have so many concealers that it isn’t funny anymore :p. Anyway, I was at my friend’s house and I was applying makeup at her place, the only type of concealer she had was liquid. When I applied it under my eyes POP out more and gave more light under them. Not only that, because it was liquid it wasn’t very harsh to pat under the eyes. So when I was at Sephora I purchased a liquid concealer, it works great. Would I run to the store for this? No. Why? Because I found out that most liquid concealers do the same job that I’m looking for :P.

  • Too Faced: Shadow Insurance (anti-crease eye shadow primer)

No matter what brand of eye-shadow we are using sometimes it’s HARD to keep it in place all DAY. This is where an eye-shadow primer comes into place. I’ve been trying to get my hands on this primer for months; my local Sephora was out of stock. Now that I have it I REALLY DO LOVE IT! It works like WOW! It makes any eye-shadow true colour come out and it does prevent creasing. Another thing I found out was that it made cream eye-shadows dry FASTER! 😀

Grey Eye-shadows!

  • Sephero Eye shadow: intense black N*01  light and dark grey

Winter is here and I thought it would be nice to make a grey smoky-eye look. I wanted a grey that wasn’t matt but I didn’t want it have much glitter.  This is why I LIKED this pallet; the eye-shadows had a smooth stain finish but still a bit matt. I this grey pallet became my EVERDAY eye-shadow for winter! 😀

Glitter Eye shadow pallet!

  • Sephora Moonshadow baked palette

As I was shopping for make-up, I bumped into this SWEET glitter eye-shadows. My first insect was “I NEED TO TAKE THESE BABES HOME!” I loved the idea that in one paltte I was able to find 10 AMAZING different SUPER glittery eye-shadows that I can apply in an method to achieve any intensity of glitter I wanted. To make the glitter stand out the best method is to activate the eye-shadow with water and use a silicon make-up brush (look below). I love the quality and design of this pallet!

Makeup Haul and Review: Sephora (Part 1)

Early this month I went to Sephora, my plan was to buy an eye shadow palette from Two Faced but then I realised that I needed more make-up and ended up getting A LOT. It’s been ages since I went proper make up shopping! I’m the kind of girl that likes to try different types of make-up and the ones that I really like I would purchase again. So I thought this would be a GREAT opportunity to get some products that I haven’t tried in the past. This means that all the make-up that I got from Sephora are all my FIRST TIMERS. 😀

THE MAKE-UP!

I couldn’t spend so much time in Sephora, my aunt was in a hurry to leave. YET I still had time (the knowledge of the store! :P) to get what I wanted. Plus they have really great customer service to help you track the products that you want faster.

Below you’ll see the things that I purchased. I’ll be even reviewing and telling you how I feel about each product. All of products I tried them out. Some I liked and some not so much, anyhow let me go and show you thee PRODUCTS!

Lipsy products!

photo (60)Products from left to right:

I won’t lie, I have so  many red lipstikes, but I can’t get enough of them! It’s a classy colour and it’s alwaya a lip colour that stays in fashion. This was the first time that I ever “MakUp ForEver” lipsticks, yet this deep red caught my eye. I thought it would be the perfect red for winter (I love reds and maroons for winter). The first time I wore this lipstike was when I was invited to a wedding and I was wearing a red dress, it went realy well. The colour lasted all night, for a mat colour it didn’t make my lips dry. Although it’s very rough to apply. Anyway I love this colour this is going to be my WINTER RED! ❤

Top is the lipstick on my LIPS
Bottom a SWATCH of the lipstick

  • Sephora lipstick (nude): N*04

Nude lipsticks aren’t really my thing. Everytime I buy one I don’t really like it, its very hard for me to find a nude lipstick that I woud like. On the other hand,  when I saw this lipstik I FEEL IN LOVE WITH IT! I loved it  becuase it had an under tone of light brown when I applied it that goes great with my skin. This colour is long lasting, to my schock that when I apply it, it give a glossy effect and it stays put the whole day. The one thing I didn’t like about it, it has this wirred smell (it isn’t a bad smell) I’m just picky with how make-up products smell. The reason is because I have dry skin and many products that have smells can dry up the skin. when I run out of this lipstick I’ll get is again. AT LAST I FOUND A NUDE LIPSTICK I LOVE! YAAAY! 😀

On the bottom the SWATCH of the lipliner and lipstick

  • Sephora lip-liner (nude): 05 native nude

As I mentioned above I am not a very big fan of nude lispsticks, and that goes for lipliners too. I never saw the reason of having or using on. Then I bought this lipstick and I thought it would be nice with nude lipstick that I got. The idea was use to use this lipliner to difine my lips to show the outerline of my lips without making it to visble. I think it did the job that I wanted it to. The thing that I don’t like about this lipliner is that the product is so little compaired to the price and other brans. Next time I would try to purchase a lipliner that has more product.

Eyelushes products!

photo (59)From left to right:

  • Sephora Liquid eyeliner: 01 Black

I bet we can all agree that liquid eyliner can be the hardest thing to apply. It can be sumdged eassyly when being applied. It can get on your eyelashes. It even can take a long time to dry out and it’s not very forgiving if you tried fixing your mistakes. Another thing, it’s been almost 2 years SINCE I’ve used liquide eyeliner. I found out that geleyeliner is faster to apply, but won’t give you that intens black that a LIQUID eyeliner would give.

  • Sephora Jumbo eyeliner: 13 marine

I never really liked BIG pencil-liners, I found that they are really hard to sharpen. Plus they tend to be very dry. So the reason why this liner captured my eyes beacues for a BIG pencil-liner it is SUPER CREAMY!

MATT EYESHADOW

As I mentioned above the reason why I wanted to go to Sephora was to buy the Too Faced eye-shadow pallet! The other day I was going through my makeup collection and I realised that I DIDN’T have much MATT eyes-shadows. Then I was like this is not good for a person that is starting out a MAKE-UP and FASHION blog/vlog. I then remembered a few weeks ago I saw some lovely eye-shadows at Sephora and then I was like HEY I NEED TO GET ONE OF THOSE!

This pallet contains 6 eye-shadows with 3 highlighting shadows. From top to bottom:

  • Day: Tufted Suede , Chinchilla, Coffee Bean

As the name implies I really liked these eye-shadows if I was going out during the day. I even saw myself going back to these eye-shadows as my go to colours if I wasn’t sure what I wanted to apply.

  • Classic: Velveteen Bunny, Pebbles, London Fog

Most of you know that the classic smoky-eyes has BLACKS and GREYS. So you can see why this line has those colours. I liked using them when I was going out during the afternoon and evening. During the evening I’d add some shimmer to give it more of an edgy look.

  • Fashion: Fresh Linen, Vintage Violet, Midnight

These colours gave the smoky-eye a WHOLE new meaning! I loved the idea of mixing PURPLE with GRYS, it was so much fun. It was perfect of the day out (if you just lighten the colours) and even for a NIGHT out. When I added glitter to it, it just made the eyes STAND OUT.

I liked all the colours and the intensity of them. They were easy to blend out and they stayed on for a long time even without a primer. Although, the primer did give them more definition to their colour. 😀 Swatches are on Part 2 of this blog.

Sorry because I was not able to post all the pictures on this blog I had to split them into 2 parts. Press this link Part 2 to continue this article.
