FOTN: Purple Smokey Eye

FOTN: Purple Smokey Eye
Hola beauty buffs!*_*! I wore this look out to dinner at a restaurant over on Atlantis, Paradise Island, The Bahamas; where I live in case you didn't know. The restaurant's name is 'Atlas Bar & Grill'. Because it's in the casino part of the hotel, it stays open really late, they take orders until 11pm or 12am. If you read another one of my posts titled 'Gray-Silver-Purple Smokey Eye', then you would know that most of the shadows that I used for this look got destroyed by my lil sis, so I had to throw it out. In case you're wondering about the earrings, I've had them for several years and I got them at a costume jewelery store called Nassau Glamour Girls at The Mall of Marathon in Nassau, The Bahamas. I don't have the budget for 'real/metallic' jewelery; so I find and would advise that investing in' one-of-a-kind', well made, unique pieces ends up saving you a lot of money when you don't have to continuously replace them, and they're already cost-effective to begin with.
Products: -A regular matte face powder -Golden brown e/s i-mark Tiki/Gioia on the inner corner of lid -med. purple e/s over the brown e/s and over bottom lid -deep purple e/s in the crease -gold e/s i-mark in Tough Luxe as highlight over the brow -Mark Just-Pinched-Instant-Blush-Tint in Nude -Soft pink tinted lip gloss -Black Mascara and black eyeliner on water line
Thank you for checking this out, please continue to visit and Follow if you haven't as yet!*_*!

LOTD: Everyday Simple Neutral Eye

LOTD: Everyday Simple Neutral Eye
Hola beauty buffs! I know that I've been M.I.A. for a bit, my bad. I'm sorry about that, but I just don't really know what to say if I'm not posting a new look. Plus my batteries died out, so it was useless. Furthermore, I misplaced the usb wire to connect my camera to the pc, and on top of that the pc doesn't recognize my memory card. Anywho, this was a neutral eye look that I did for kicks earlier in the week. Not too much fuss, just a simple, everyday eye wear. What I used:
- Al'Kiss eyeshadow Palette light brown, med. bronze, white+yellow for highlight - Lip gloss unknown brand in 'Malt' + Elizabeth Arden High Shine Gloss 'light pink' [don't know the actual name] - Avon Double End Mascara in 'black' Thanks for checking this out!*_*! Please follow this blog, comment, and cbox me.
