Happy, happy Friday! Friday is date night/ go out night. So I wanted to do a look that you can do for going out tonight. So here is a smokey eye. I love green because it makes brown eyes pop, or any eyes pop. There is something about green that just makes you want to look. I hope you guys really enjoy this look, and don’t be afraid to change things and make it your own. For those of you who like to actually visually see how to do this check the video below. 1. Put tape on the outer part of your eye. Helps create a crisp line
2. Use a shimmery green eyeshadow on the lid (shade 1 below)
3. Add a mid-tone brown to the crease (Shade 2)
4. Add a darker olive green(shade 3) to the crease & outer corner sweeping it inward close to the lash line (Also mix with the mid-tone brown on the lower lid)
5. Add a shimmery champaign pigment(shade 4) to the center of the lid to brighten
6. Add that same champaign eyeshadow in the tear duct area

Welcome to 2014 , Its a new year ! Today I thought I would reflect on last years Beauty Favorites! Things that I love & Tell you why!
First Off Hair & Skin: Bed Head Moisture Maniac Shampoo & Conditioner have literally saved My hair from brittle distraction! I Got them together at Cosco for $20, The smell is amazing & right away I noticed a difference!
My Absolute Favorite fragrance for 2013 Is the Pink Sweet & Flirty Perfume from Victorias Secrets ! It is a very girly, fruity with a hint of flower scent & the best part is it only cost $20
I have used aveeno for most of the year but Clean & clear morning burst cleanser has been the star… The one I am using right now is this one which I won’t get again because It has caffeine But the Fruit Infusions kind is so great! They smell good , they are gentle enough for daily use & they are just so refreshing!
Lately I have gone back to the Silk From Silk essentials I got this at regency beauty institute & it works amazing on styled hair, It makes you look like you just came out of a salon! So silk , soft & shiny…
Now Going on to Makeup!
For Eyeshadow I am absolutely loving the L’oreal Wear infinite kerrys bronzes quad the colors are some amazing bronzy neutrals, that are so pigmented & rich!
I also added this ELF $1 Eyeshadow quad in Drama because it is the perfect smokey eye, the eyeshadows are put together nicely to give you a beautiful easy smokey eye! For just a dollar you can’t beat that!
Eyebrows are a big must do every single day! I have used pencils, shadows, gels & all the above but I keep going back to Elf Eyebrow Kit : Medium It has a gel & A Shadow Its just fantastic! IT only cost $3 & it even comes with a really great eyebrow brush!
A Blush I keep on coming back to , to the point where I have hit pan is The Elf Blush: Tickled Pink It is a great universally Flattering everyday blush… It works with any look & it is just my go to blush!
Next is a Random Favorite , My Bow! I have made these bows myself… I did a DIY Bow Clip Blog post already showing you how to do this but it is so great & I am not going to lie to you but I am obsessed with BOWS!
I have tried a lot of foundations but by far my favorite to use is the Loreal magic Nude liquid powder foundation! It is a liquid foundation with a powder finish, it feels like no other drugstore foundation , it has a medium coverage & it leaves your face look natural..
The concealer duo I have been loving & has been working really well is the Elf $1 All over face concealer: Honey & The Kirkland mineral exact concealer .. I use the elf concealer to conceal blemishes & The Kirkland Concealer in yellow for under the eyes! It works amazing together!
My absolute favorite bronzer this year is the Elf Glow: Bronzed It is a mineral bronzer .. It is a neutral brown rather than warm so it is perfect for contouring!
So my favorite nail polishes of the year are Wet N Wild Candilicious , Sinful Colors: Tempest & Avon: Midnight Plum.. These nail polish are so beautiful they dry fast, apply evenly, & are really pigmented with the first coat!
Last , But not least is…. LIPSTICKS! I have raved about these lipsticks in my blog before because they are that great .. I did an in-depth review about the jordana twist & Shine balm Stains Honey Love & cranberry Crush.. They are really inexpensive at $2.99 a piece , they are moisturizing , pigmented & the best part is it is long lasting (leaves a stain)… The LA Colors Lipstick & lipgloss DUO is also another lip product I have relentlessly talked about because they are soft, creamy but they have a more matte effect & the best part is it leaves a stain that is gorgeous! Plus they are only $1 at the dollar tree , these are my fAvorite shades Flushed & Charmed…
So here is my Makeup look for today! I have talked about the profusion palettes At walgreens & the dollar tree… I am using the Dazzle me Petite Palette on my eyes to give me a more neutral eye!
