So Im a little late with this post, but at the end of each month (or beginning of the next month) I like to post my Monthly makeup/beauty favorites. October was such a fun month for me because of all the Halloween stuff going on! So there are a little random favorites this month because of Halloween.
Like always you can watch the video to see the products , but here on my blog I like to get into more detail about why I like the products etc.
Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation- This is one of my favorite foundation in the drugstore because of its full coverage capability’s and its staying power. I have never had a problem with the staying power; I put it on in the morning and its on all day. I also never had a problem with it oxidizing ; which basically means it never changed colors on me throughout the day.
Wet N Wild Eye palette : Poster Child- Wet N Wild has some of the best eye shadows out at the drugstore right now! These palettes especially are amazing , this is a newer palette that has only bright, mostly matte, shades. I love the pigmentation , the eye shadows feel soft and smooth. I used this palette for all my Halloween looks this year and really enjoyed it!
Kirkland Eyeshadow Palette- This palette is from Cosco and I decided to pull it out last month because I wanted to do a lavender bridal look for on of my blog posts. A lot of you may have already read this post and if not I encourage you to do so. I posted pictures showing you step by step how to achieve the look. This palette really surprised me , the eye shadows felt smooth and almost like velvet.
Doll 10: Highlighter- This is a cream Highlighter that is very subtle. Sometime we see pictures where the woman has a glow on her cheek bones , that is all because of a highlighter. Where some highlighters are very glowy and can make you look oily this one is more natural ; which is perfect for everyday use.
Kiss Eyelashes 01- Im not one to where eyelashes everyday because its so hard to find natural looking ones. But with that said I have been loving these ones, and you can find them at Walmart or any drugstore.
Wet N Wild Color Icon Lip Liner: Cherry Red – This is the lip liner that I used for Halloween and for some of my tutorials as well . It works amazing for only being $1 it stays on all night even when I eat and talk all night.
Wet N Wild Lipstick: Cherry Frost $1- This is the lipstick I paired up with the lip liner and like I said before for only $1 it works like magic , very impressive.
Wet N Wild Fantasy Lipstick : Black- I Used this lipstick for my Harley Quinn Blog/ Tutorial and I loved it perfect for Halloween.
Starlooks Lipgloss: Guilty Pleasures- This lip gloss is a nude lip gloss that I have used all month long. It is not sticky , it is instead very comfortable on the lips and the color pay off is pretty good . I got this in recent Ipsy bag and have really enjoyed it.
I am wearing some of these October Favorites on today so you can see how they look on! I love favorites because then they give you an idea of some good makeup products that are in stores right now!
Thank you guys for all your support I really do appreciate it!
So what is a makeup product that was your favorite for October? Let me know in the comments!
Don’t Forget Beauty Comes from within so let yours shine!
Yes , I am doing another halloween makeup look. This time I am doing a collab with another Beauty Guru on youtube , we decided to each pick a villain from the Batman Comics. I decided to do Harley Quinn and she is doing Poisen Ivy. I am so excited I loved the Batman Comics as a kid and still do , last year I did do a cat woman Halloween look too. A video is so much easier to do for this because of all the steps.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial. This was actually a pretty easy look to do it just took a few steps ; but I felt like it turned out great.
For the face I decided to use my reg ular foundation and concealer rather than a white face paint. I really wanted Harley Quinn to still have her pretty look rather than look ugly. So all I did was apply my concealer & foundation, then I used a red blush on the cheeks.
The eyes are a little bit more complicated. I decided to do a black smokey eye on and smudge black eyeliner on the lower lid. Harley Quinn’s costume is half black and half red so I decided to incorporate the red in with the eyebrows. I just used a Lipliner and then applied red shadow on top to make it more long lasting. I did notice that my lashes got lost in all the black so falsies are definitely going to be your friend with this look. I think that all the curvy lines and dots really added to her look and made it seem more like her.I did decided to do a winged eyeliner on the upper lash line & fill in the waterline with a red lipliner. (Any time you use lipliner make sure to top of with red eyeshadow.) I also went onto of my winged liner with a glittery eyeshadow to add some sparkle and red into the eye look.
The mask was pretty easy to do with an eyeliner, if it is easier for you just map out your lines with a white or nude eyeliner first. I really wanted to keep the diamond trend going on the face because her costume has lots of diamonds on it. So thats why I made my mask look more like diamonds.
I wanted the Lips to be a big eye opener so I decided to do a diamond in the center of the lips but make it half black and half red. Then on the outside of the lips I used the opposite colors. I did decided to make my lips more pointy and a little thicker than my actual lips to play up the costume.
Wet N Wild Eyeliner : White , Wet N Wild Lipliner: Berry Red
Wet N Wild Palette: Poster Child (Red & black)
Wet N Wild Blusher: Mellow Wine
Wet N Wild Lipstick: Cherry Frost 514a , Wet N Wild Fantasy Lipstick: Black

I am sorry I have been gone for a couple months , but I am back and I have been itching to show you guys how to recreate Melinda Gordons famous Brown Smokey eye! If you want to see what look that was exactly then click here.
Like always I did do a video tutorial for you guys , but I also decided to take real detailed pictures for you guys to pin for later or for you to do right now!!!
If you guys like my videos then make sure to subscribe to my youtube channel!
Ok so lets get started with the makeup. (List of the products used will be at the end)
* She is almost always rocking this Dark golden brown smokey eye & of course you can’t forget her fake lashes that make her eyes look doe eyed! Its actually super simple to recreate.
*For her face she kept it simple. She warmed up her complexion and added a very soft coral blush. She does always contour her cheeks & highlights to bring out her bone structure. Then for her lips she used a nude or a slightly natural pink lipstick & gloss.
So thats it, as you can see it is pretty simple. I tried to use more affordable products , the only high end product is the face palette.
Today I am sharing a very special look, this is the look I did for my Wedding! I was married on May 11,2012 so on behalf of this being my anniversary month, I thought I would share this special Makeup with you! I am using all the exact products I used on the day 2 years ago! Lets go…
I did my own makeup for my engagement pictures and my wedding, you can do it too. This look will last you all day , look great in pictures and its easy to do. This is also a great Prom look, graduation look, or any special event .
I chose to do a more natural look for my engagement pictures so I skipped eyeshadow and went for a natural flush on the cheeks and lips … For My wedding I made sure to do a full face makeup, pictures tends to fade what you have on so you have to apply a little more makeup then you normally would..
So are the Products I used:
Maybelline 24 hr Super Stay Foundation
Elf Face Primer
Elf All Over Face Color: Pink Lemonade
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Divergent Highlight (Gold Highlight for the cheeks)
Elf Warm Bronzer
Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil (Black)
Maybelline Butterfly Mascara Water proof
Essence I <3 volume mascara
NYC Lip Stain : Fuchsia
Covergirl Lipstick: Demure
Elf Makeup Mist & Set Spray
This makeup look lasted me all day with minimal touch ups. All I had to do was use some powder (because we had taken pictures outside, you get oily) and some lipstick.
I hope you find some inspiration in my makeup look… Share my blog or Facebook page….
