Bit More Bobbi Brown Pink Raspberry FOTD

My Bobbi Brown post on the new Pink Raspberry Collection got a few comments about colors so I thought I’d do another Bobbi FOTD today! You can read more of my review on this collection by clicking here if you missed it!

Super simple one as I was rushed yet again today! I LOVE LOVE Bobbi Brown Rouge in Raspberry! When I’m in the sun for a short period a time, prior to browning up like a sausage, I tend to get a highlight of yummie pink on each of my cheekbones and this mimics that to a tee without the gross “tan”, “bronze” look I get when I’m outside too long minus sunblock!

And anything bad I ever said about the lip crayons I totally take back! They give my lips such pop plus they taste like peppermint! Rock on!

I used one of the single eyeshadows from Maquillage. For some reason there has been a frenzy for Maquillage lately hehe! So I thought I’d display some of the shadows in action! They are silky and lovely but a bit sheer but definately lovely if you like a less bold look!

Majolica Majorca Spring Collection FOTD using GR741

Of course I couldn’t wait to long before digging into GR741 from MJ’s Spring Collection! You can read my review of the Collection by clicking here if you missed it!

Sadly I rushed while doing this morning and I mucked it up badly icon sad

However, I think it deserves a re-mention that GR741 is probably the most pigmented Majolook palette I have ever come across and it’s quickly becoming a fav for me!

This should definately be in your Spring shopping cart! It’s worth picking up before it disappears for good!

Reader’s Request: Lavshuca Winter Make Tutorial

Hey Guys!

One of my readers, Millie, asked very sweetly for a Tutorial using the Lavshuca Winter Make Palette in 01, which is the Berry Mix, and of course I’d be happy to do it for her (I’m flattered she asked!)!

I’m crap at Tutorials but I hope this helps somehow Millie!

Keep in mind Millie is Asian and sadly my eyes are nowhere (as you know they are rather large and buggy) near Asian in appearance so this might not be of help to some of you or Poor Millie for that matter!

This is really simple one but I think it has the potential to look very natural, elegant, and pretty!

One of the main colors in the palette is a very pale, light shade of pink and I find that the pink actually contrasts beautifully with the dark purplish liner in the palette. The funny thing about the liner is when it’s on your eye it reflects off of the rather washed out pink color and makes it appear a berry purple color.

Before I start the tutorial I thought I’d post the promo images so you can see the shadow in action on Puffy!

Our model on the left hand side is wearing the palette I’ll be using! The thing that I love about Lavshuca is that the models don’t appear heavily made up nor do they appear to be wearing something that isn’t in the palette that they are advertising. The look doesn’t appear to be too difficult to create or leave you with a feeling of how in the world can I create this using just this palette!

The only thing I did notice about the models is that they may be wearing a bit of a heavier liner on the lower and possibly the upper lash lines! Aside from that the colors are identical to what is in the palette!

I buy tons of cosmetics and I always see promo images with models wearing the makeup and it influences me to purchase a particular shade or palette and of course when I get home the colors never work together or I’m unable to recreate the same look as the model because obviously the colors weren’t used on the model or they photo shopped the hell out of the image! It deserves to be said this happens mostly with western brands I’ve noticed!

I babbled enough! On with the tutorial!

Here’s what I created using my Winter Make palette! I took two sets of photos, one set consists of me using only the lipcream and glitter top gloss on my lips. After I completed my look I just felt my lips weren’t “popping” enough so I added some Sony CP Curvy Lip Silicon on top! My face appears super duper white in the images! Apologies but the flash from my camera was reflecting off my shirt and giving me the look of a ghost!

What I Used:

Eyes:
Lavshuca Winter Make Palette in 01

Lips:

Sony CP Curvy Lip Silicon

Face:
NARS Blush in Angelika

Ok now that I’ve exhausted you with babblings and pictures I’ll get on with the tutorial!

I started by taking the lightest cream shade on the left hand side of the palette and worked it from my highbrow all the way to my crease. Use the applicator the palette came with! The sponge applicator is the perfect way to pack on the color and especially handy since the colors are so light! I need alot of the color but if you’re Asian one nice coat of the cream shade should do it, if not pick up more color and work it in.

After giving my highbrow and crease a wash of color with the cream I took the pink shade (middle color) and worked it onto my lid. I dipped about three times into the palette to build up the pink as it’s such a light color. Again, if you’re Asian you might not need as much as it might cake. My eyes dominate my face and I have ALOT of eye area to cover so three times is about the right amount for me.

Millie said she was having a difficult time with the liner palette and wondering if she should line her upper and lower line. I personally opped to line my lower lash line and as you can see the models also sport the liner on the bottom lash line however Millie had expressed she felt it looked weird on! You can always just use the pale pink on your lower lash line instead and it’ll brighten the look up!

In order to achieve the “smoke” of the look I drew a large line onto my eye using the last color in the palette. I proceeded to use a smudge eye brush (if you don’t have one just use a small eyeshadow brush) to blend the color into my lash line and “smoke” it out so to speak. I know from prior use that the purple black of the color looked a tad weird on my bottom lash line as well so before applying I take a bit of the pink and line with that and I proceed to take whatever remains on my applicator from my upper lining (don’t dip again you’ll have plenty on the applicator left over from prior application on your upper lashline) and line my lower eye! If you find that you don’t have enough of the color to line the lower lash line very lightly re-dip and proceed to line a bit more. Don’t over do it. It’s a very strange purple color so use a tiny bit and you’ll find you get just the look you want!

After that I used the lipcream, applied the glitter top gloss and done! I found that the color was too matte for me so I used a bit of gloss to spice it up!

And Bob’s your uncle! You’ve got a killer look using the Winter Make Tutorial!

I know I don’t have a ton of pics to accompany the tutorial but I did this prior to work this morning as I just got Millie’s comment this morning!

Hope it helps Millie!!!!!!!

Maybe you’ll send some pics so we can see what you create!

Hugs!
