New Makeup Tutorial: Purplelicious Eyes

Hey beauties! I hope that you all are enjoying summer with your friends and family! I know I am and that is way it has been a while since I posted a new video. Since my son is off to summer camp during the day time  I had a chance to create a fun and purplelicious makeup tutorial for you lovely beauties out there. This look can be worn going out or you an wear this to work if you are craving some bursts of colors with electric lines of purple liner accents. Below You will see my product list of my favorite beauty product I used in this tutorial. If you don’t own the same exact color be creative and use colors in your existing makeup collection. Otherwise if you are a makeup junkie like myself then dash off to your local MAC or sephora for this look.

NARS Review: Sheer Glow & Sheer Matte Foundations

Today I will be talking about 2 of my newest favorite liquid foundations which are NARS Sheer Glow and Sheer Matte. As you may have noticed in the life update section of my blog I had a big haul of things I purchase before and after Christmas. I was so fortunate to receive gifts cards from my friends at work and they now I LOVE to shop for makeup, so with that said I decided to pick up both NARS foundations. You may be wondering why did you pickup both? Well, depending on my mood I love to have glowing skin at times and then I also like to sport a matte look too. I guess you can call me a chameleon in makeup, huh? Is NARS foundation new to you? Well you can find NARS cosmetics at Sephora and Nordstorms on and off-line.

Who or what is NARS Cosmetics? Click here to find out more about Nars and the genious behind the Brand Francois Nars. Now let's talk more about each foundations I picked up and the differences. The First foundation I would like to talk about is the NARS sheer Glow and the facts.

According to the brand NARS Sheer Glow Foundation does the following:

What it does: This Sheer Glow Foundation enhances, without masking, your overall natural complexion The weightless formula hydrates the skin while complexion brightening properties improve skin brightness, radiance, and texture, leaving skin with a luminous, sensual glow.

What else you need to know: Suitable for normal, normal-to-dry, dry, and very dry skin types.

Source: Sephora.com

My opinion on the Sheer Glow is awesome! For one thing if you have a yellow undertone this foundation is the best for that which I am! It is a struggle for me to find a foundation that is not too pink, orange, or red and NARS hands down was a perfect fit for me. As fair as the weight of the foundation it is light smooth and velvety to the touch. It is best to apply the foundation with you hands because the hands warm up the foundation and gives it the best blending possible. However at times I will use my stippling brush and blend in circular motion to get a light airbrush finish to the foundation. The coverage of the foundation is light and buildable, but be aware if you need a full coverage foundation this may no be the one to use for that unless you are using lots, and I mean A LOT of concealer. The finish is beautiful!! My skin was very luminous and healthy. Now mind you if you skin and skincare is not on point do not expect the same results. I truly stress that your foundation is only as good as you skin.  Let's move on to Sheer Matte.

According to the brand NARS Sheer Matte Foundation does the following:

What it does: This Sheer Glow Foundation enhances, without masking, your overall natural complexion. The weightless formula absorbs oil and keeps skin shine free all day long. The complexion brightening properties improve skin brightness, radiance, and texture, leaving the complexion with a luminous, fresh finish.

What else you need to know: Suitable for normal, normal-to-oily, oily, and very oily skins types.

Source: Sephora.com

What I like about this one is the fact that if you are experiencing oiliness in the skin this foundation is oil free and great for mattifying and absorbing oil throughout the day. So for my oily skin Chameleons out there you will love this foundation. The undertones are the same of the sheer glow, the texture is smooth and flawless. You can also apply the foundation in the same manner as the sheer glow. The coverage is about the same as the sheer glow too.

The one thing I did not point out is that both foundation have a complex in side that helps improves the texture and brightness of your skin while wearing it which is a plus. It's kind of like having foundation with skincare in it! So, that can be the reason why you will pay $42 for each foundation. Now you may be asking if there is a cheaper alternative to this foundation? I have been searching the web and the buzz right now is that Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation, $12.49 is the one for sheer glow, but. . . Just looking at the shade range of the Neutrogena everything looks to light for even my skin tone or too pink .  But if you have it let me know your thoughts on it.

Are you ready for some crazy brights? Wow! I am and let me tell Raving Beauty Cosmetics sent me some shadows that I have got to share with you all. I just recently receive a grouping of shadows and earrings to review and all I have to say is wow! I have been sleeping on these colors for too long. The shades I received are: Spring Light Blue, Dark Blue Sparkle, Dark Night & Peru.

As you can see from the photos the eye shadows are nicely pigmented with it beautiful satin finish. According to Raving Beauty Cosmetics the following shadows have the following characteristics:

  • SPRING LIGHT BLUE: Medium blue with a pearl sheen is tinged with a hint of green, resulting in a tranquil, cool and carefree pastel. Ingredient: Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Ultramarine Blue, Hydrated Chromium Oxide Green.
  • DARK BLUE SPARKLE: Lustrous, super-saturated blue with a low sheen. This medium-deep blue has a wonderfully mature, sophisticated, appearance. Ingredients: Mica, titanium dioxide, ferric ferrocyanide, tin oxide.
  • DARK KNIGHT:  This sparkly, translucent grey with a deep due undertone recalls the sky as it crawls into a stormy night. Ingredients: mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, baron nitride.
  • PERU: A profound and classic shimmery purple color. Ingredients: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Tin Dioxide, Iron Oxide

These colors are so amazing that I had to break out my makeup brushes and create a colorful tutorial! If you love the shadows you can find them at http://ravingbeautycosmetics.ecrater.com. Each shadow sells for only $5.00 each. Each 5 gram jar is filled with 1tsp of product. She also sell sample bags too for a $1.50 and each bag is filled with ¼ teaspoon of product.

But before I get to that I also had to share with you a pair of earrings that the owner of Raving Beauty Cosmetics sent to me. Yes, that is right they are now carrying a fun and fashionable line of jewelry from big fashion right to beautiful bangles, bracelets and necklaces. The earrings I have are the E-1-B EARRINGS LEAVES METAL & ACRYLIC RESIN METALIC BLUE & BLACK retailing at $4.00 each. I am amazed with the quality of the earrings for they are sturdy and of course look fabulous!!

Anyway you have got to check these out and you know I am going to be adding some more accessories to my collection. Now to the tutorial!! Yessss!
