Get the look: Lala Vasquez Inspired Look

16 Aug

Hey Divas!!

So I did a google search of Lala Vasquez makeup because I’ve always been inspired by the carefree yet high maintenance look she always rocks in general; her smokey eyes always looks effortless, yet polished, and when she does a more extreme look, it still has a toned down elegance that is to DIE FOR! I decided to do a look inspired by this look (see below);

Products Used:
(brows)
Maybeline Line Stylists pencil “Expresso”
BitchSlap Cosmetics brow powder “Auburn”
Maybeline FIT Concealer “#30”
(face)
Revlon Color Stay foundation “380 Caramel”
BitchSlap Cosmetics Loose Powder “Butternut”
Iman Foundation Stick “Clay 2”
28 Neutral Palette dark brown e/s & copper blush (blush/contour)
Graffiti Divas Cosmetics Blush “Cordial”
Femme Couture Mineral Effects Bake Bronzer “Twice Baked”
(eyes)
MakeUp by Sparkle e/s “Cutting Edge”
MakeUp by Sparkle e/s “Minx”
MakeUp by Sparkle e/s “Ochre”
MakeUp by Sparkle e/s “Carbon”
120 Matte Eyeshadow palette (highlight, burnt orange, brown, sage)
L’oreal liquid liner “Carbon Black”
Milani Liquif’Eye khol liner “Black”
Select Lash eyelashes “S42 Black”
L’oreal Voluminous Million Lashes “635 G900”
(lips)
NYX lip liner “Purple Rain”
NYX Black Label Lipstick “Beige”
MakeUp by Sparkle lipgloss “Nearly Naked”
Revlon Super Lustrous lipgloss “Pearl Plum”

I absolutely love this look. There’s a lot of warmth all over her face, from the rich berry toned lips, to the burnt orange and brown shades applied to her crease areas and lower lashline of her eyes, to even the subtle hint of flushness to her cheeks. Then the artist brought in the cool tones of a icy silver and forest green on her lid, which makes her green eyes pop! To further glamify this look, the artist incorporated lush, full lashes; icing on the cake!

I later decided to re-do this look, using different products, and “upping the Glam” by choosing both lighter and darker, yet equally bolder colors. See below! Continue reading

Look of the Day: Vavoom!

12 Oct
What turns heads more than fire engine red lips?! Add that with intensely scupted, silver/ black lids for drama, and you’re sure to have peoples heads spinning, and tongues wagging!

Fly Won

You know what I say, “There ARE no rules to makeup!”, that’s why even though this Diva’s wearing bold lips AND bold lids, it somehow doesn’t look too overpowering. The reason why is because I opted to play down the rest of the face using minimum color on the cheeks and face as far as blush, highlighting and contouring. Rather, I created a flawlass face using my FAV liquid foundation, Revlon ColorStay, created depth with some lighter shades using concealer, and dusted on some translucent powder and the tiniest amount of mineral pressed powder (LA Colors brand, review coming soon).

Flawless Foundation Application

12 Oct

Eyes: Loreal Hip Duo "Sculpted"

I get SOOOO  many questions here lately regarding my foundation application. I’ll be honest Divas, it’s ever changing; from cream foundations, foundation sticks to liquid or even mousse foundation, I constantly modify my application techniques, constantly perfecting it little by little.

I’m not one of those chicks that typically use specific tools to apply my foundation, i.e., a foundation brush ONLY to apply my foundation. In my search to achieve the most flawless coverage, I found a neat trick using a totally different brush meant for a different purpose altogether! Continue reading
