Dramatic VS Simple FOTD

Hello! Just wanted to post up some pictures of a couple of looks that I've done lately...
This look was actually the result of boredom =D. I was just playing around with my L'Oreal HIP duo in Platinum 906 and this was the outcome. I really like this look but it's definitely more dramatic than my usual makeup.

You can add a little bit of vaseline on the center of your lids to give it that wet look too, but make sure you apply a bit of eye shadow or in this case, MAC reflects pearl. I put some of the reflects pearl on the middle of my lips as well.

This look is what I wear when I go to school or just to chill with family and friends. I don't really like to put too much but I do like to put just enough to brighten up my otherwise dull looking complexion and eyes.
For this look, I used my L'Oreal HIP duo in Foxy 808. This particular eyeshadow duo is my favorite one from L'Oreal HIP, because I think it's versatile enough to work for a day or night look. It comes with a matte dark brown and a pale salmon pink color.
If you want to use this eyeshadow duo for a night time look, then I suggest applying the matte brown on your lids and your lower lash line to give a smokey effect. Then take the pale salmon pink color and just add a bit to your crease.
As you can see, I simply tight lined my upper lash lines and added a bit on the outer half of my bottom lash lines (then smudged it). If you're doing a night time look, then you would definitely add more definition by lining both the lash lines and maybe even the inner rims.
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Are you going to do some shopping for Black Friday? I know I am! Gotta get some stuff for baby Mia. Speaking of baby, I am 35 weeks pregnant today! Hoooray! Just a few more weeks to go!


  1. Be careful going shopping, I know sometimes people can get a little intense and quite pushy when shopping. :p Make sure you don't let anyone attack you for a cute onesies. Lol

    And I like both makeup looks on you. I know the dramatic look is really pretty on you, but I think I prefer the simple look more. Just because that's how I'm used to seeing you and I think you're just naturally really pretty :)

  2. Awww thanks Dana. You're too sweet! I actually painted a picture in my head of people acting like football players for Black Friday! LoL I'm probably just gonna wait for hubby to be on the safe side. I like the simple looks too. How are your studies? I hope everything is going well. I know nursing school can be challenging but I have no doubt in my mind that you will succeed. =D

  3. "Great post, very useful for a beginner like me"
