MA- Makeup Lovers Anonymous

Archive for June 2012

I had a crazy fun but crazy busy weekend! First of all, my best friend, my love, finally proposed to me! He said he was going to do it when I least expected it and he did! I was sitting on the couch in a towel doing my makeup. Haha! Needless to say, I said yes and I couldn’t be happier! There’s a picture of my ring below.

Now, about the makeup. I have 2 weekend looks. I went bowling on Friday and I was attempting to make my eyes look like a glittery bowling ball. LOL. I have also cut back on my foundation for the summer since I have such oily skin. In these 2 looks, I just have tinted moisturizer and concealer on my face. For the first look, I started out with Urban Decay primer potion. I used a purple NYX jumbo pencil and a pink Marbella jumbo pencil as bases. All the colors are from my Crown Brush 88 palette. I used a dark brown in the outer V, purple on the outer half and pink on the inner half. I used a lighter brown to blend in the crease and a cream color as a brow highlight. I used the same purple and pink pencils and shadows along the bottom lashline and a white at the tear duct. I finished it off with my Too Faced glitter glue topped with Sally Girl purple and pink glitters, NYX black eye liner, and Maybelline Falsies mascara.

For the second look, I also used my Crown Brush palette and I also started with Urban Decay primer potion. I kept it kind of neutral. I used dark brown and light brown to blend the outer V and crease. Oh but before that, I used my NYX junco pencil in Milk (white). On the lids, I used a gold color and silver on the bottom lashline. I finished it off with white at the tear duct and brow bone. Finished off with NYX black eye liner and Falsies mascara. I got a new teasing comb when I got my hair cut last week and I LOVE. I was able to do this awesome pomp.

My last picture is of my poor nail after bowling on Friday. I just thought I’d share. LOL

Lastly, I will be MIA next week because I’m going to Honduras on a mission trip! I leave Tuesday and come back the following Monday. I’m really excited and will share all about it when I get back. I hope you enjoyed these looks! And don’t forget to email me at makeuploversblog@gmail.com any time and follow me on instagram @sarahnutzzz! Thanks for subscribing!

Ok first of all, Adrianne was the only person who commented so she’s the winner! I’ll get with you soon to get you your freebies. I’m taking a week off to figure out how to make this giveaway better and get more people involved.

In the meantime, I wanted to quickly post what my nails look like right now. I used a purple shimmery color on the tip then painted a line of glitter underneath. Oh I did use a clear base coat. Then I finished it up with 2 coats of clear top coat. Hope you enjoy!!

So I posted a haul the other day with the NYX stuff I’ve gotten. I tried a smokey eye with some glitter and let me just say I was not happy with the result of the glitter. I barely even made it out of the house before the glitter was messed up in the crease. I didn’t even put glitter now the crease, just on the lids. I LOVE this collection but I’m going to have to find something else to make the glitter work and not clump up. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Here’s the looks I did this weekend. For the blue/green eyes, I used my Acid Palette for the green and darker blue. The lighter blue in the tear ducts and inner part of the lids is from my new NYX Spring Fling palette. The crease and highlight colors were also from the NYX palette. To blend the lid colors, you just use one color on one side of a flat eye shadow brush and the other color on the other side then alternate blending them at the “seam”. I used the black NYX eye liner for this look. I used falsies mascara. For blush and bronzer I used the ones that are in the NYX palette and PF highlighter.

For the neutral look, I used the NYX Smokey Eye collection palette. I love this palette. It has so many colors to do an awesome smokey eye. I kept it simple here. I also used the black NYX eye liner and the falsies mascara. Since I was keeping it neutral, I only used PF highlighter on my cheeks. Hope you enjoy!

A few weeks ago, Hautelook had a NYX sale. Of course I couldn’t resist. I got 2 palettes and an eye liner set. I got the Spring Fling palette and the Smokey Eye collection palette. So far I love both palettes. I’ve only used the black liner but that’s awesome. Here are pics for your viewing pleasure.

I wanted to quickly share the look I wore today. I know I’ve posted similar looks before but this time I added glitter. I used orange on the outer third, pink on the middle and yellow on the inner third. All from the Sleek Acid palette. I used a dark brown and a bronze from my Crown Smoke it Out palette. I used white as a brow highlight and in the tear duct. I did some liquid liner along the upper lashline with a slight wing and then finished it off with some pink and gold glitter from my NYX glitter palette. I used my Urban Decay eye liner and Maybelline falsies mascara and finished the look off with PF highlighter and e.l.f. lip gloss. Hope you enjoy!
