Glittery New Years Eve makeup tutorial

It's been a very long time since I have made a makeup tutorial for you so here is my last one of the year. I do hope you will enjoy it and make 2012 your year to sparkle and shine.....

1.We begin this look by adding a base to lock in your shadow for the rest of the night with "Cockerspaniel" from Bare Minerals. You can use a synthetic or natural haired brush for this. It really is your preferance.
 2. I have taken an off white shadow with a small amount of shimmer and added it to the inner corner of my eyes and just below the brow bone. Then, I used a silver shadow all over my lid but, not where I added the white.I used a small flat shadow brush to smooth it all out.
3. Now, I have added a bit of "smut" eyeshadow from Mac and mixed it with a rosey mauve eyeshadow from Lancome and have begun to define the outer corners of my eyes with a 217 or blending eyeshadow brush.

4. With the same brush I added a small amount of "carbon" black eyeshadow from Mac in the crease of my eye to create more definition then lined my eyes with a flat liner brush and the same shadow. Next, I added a bit of Duo glue to my lids where I wanted the glitter to stick. With my finger I patted on the silver rainbow glitter.
5. With a small lining brush and "blacktrack" gel liner from Mac I lined my eyes and rimmed them to create a more dramatic, defined line. It is important to do this AFTER you add the glitter or the glitter will stick to your eyeliner and it will look gray.
Here are the eyes after curling my lashes and applying false lash strips with a coat of mascara....

 6. Finally I finished off this look by adding a pretty pink blush "Escape and Lovely" from Bare Minerals, Highlighter in "Gossemer" from Bare Minerals to my cheek bones and down my nose and add a pinky nude lip with NYX lip liner in "Mauve", Lipstick from Revlon in "Pearl Pink" and lipgloss from Stila in "Kalidescope".

If you enjoyed this look please let me know by leaving a comment below. I may start making makeup tutorials as well as face painting tutorials in the New Year. Time to do something new.
 Have a safe and sparkly New Years eve!

Glittery love and New Years wishes,

Stila Holiday Lipglaze set Review

As most of you may know I am a lip gloss fanatic! I LOVE lipgloss and am very particular about the glosses I'll use and/or add to my kit. Stila lipglaze is a hit for me!

Here is what I love about these:

1.They are for the most part sheer and shimmery wth the exception of one which is a bonus.
2.They last! Much like Mac lipglass ..note..The tackier a gloss is, the longer it will last on your lips. If you buy a sheer super slick gloss I can promise you it will NOT last long.
3. They are small enough to slip in a small evening bag.
4.This kit has a big range.
5. It was very inexpensive $25
 The only downside to these is the small amount in each container. It's only .05 oz which means the won't last long but, it's a great way to try a bunch of colors and decide which ones you'll want to buy in the larger size.Oh and the Holiday colors which are ALL my favorites are only available in this set : ( boooo...I hope so much that they will make these in the larger size because they are all stunning!

 I am totally sold on these. In fact I have even add them to my kit. I highly recommend buying sets like this at the holidays especially if you want to add a large range of colors in a brand of cosmetics that you like ie; lipsticks,eyeshadows (which can be de-potted), eyeliners, lipliners.

I bought this set at Sephora so, if you are thinking about buying it. I say go out and get it right away because these things DO NOT last at Holiday time. They make a great gift for a gal pal, a cute stocking stuffer from mom or a nice teen gift.

Here are a few Swatches of the colors you will get.
Best Sellers
Kitten(Shimmery nude),Starfruit (Shimmery Coral) Apricot(almost clear with a little sparkle) Grapefruit(Creamy nude pink) These are good staples in any lip gloss collection.
 Limited Edition Holiday
Dreamy (The perfect creamy nude),Fantasy (Melon with a bit of sparkle. Like Starfruit kicked up a notch.),Kaleidoscope (clear glitter with every color glitter you can think of! It's GORGEOUS!!) Believe (Sheer Red with Gold glimmer. Do you remember Spark from Chanel? This is a dupe.)

This is a 5 star set..I may need another just so I don't run out of my faves.

Happy Holiday Makeup Shopping,
