This order was placed during the last day of the $15 worth of refresh category items free promo, and I'm so glad I took advantage of it because the refresh items some were things I really needed to "REFRESH" my makeup collection, so here's what all I picked up...
  • Makeup remover cleansing cloths (x2)
  • Makeup Mist and Set(repurchase)
  • Brush shampoo(repurchase)
  • Complete coverage concealer (repurchase)
  • Eyebrow treat and tame Dark (repurchase)
  • Mascara and shadow shield
  • Lip exfoliator (repurchase)
  • Blush and bronzer duo Turks and Caicos (repurchase)
  • Mineral blush Plum
  • Baked blush Passion Pink
  • Studio Blush Candid Coral (repurchase)

  • Mineral INFUSED mascara

Hope you like my haul. I have another 1 that will be posted by the end of this week coming up.

B'More Raven's Inspired MakeUp

Ok so I was looking at the Covergirl facebook page and OMG they have the cutest little designs for Superbowl sunday for nails. Out of the teams "Baltimore Ravens and the 49'ERS. So I was inspired to do a makeup look using one of the teams and google...The Ravens. Maybe I'll try the look for the 49'ers also but for right now I'm rooting for the Raven's and was able to recreate this gorgeous eye design for the event. :D ENJOY!!
This look is super easy to create if you have a semi-steady hand, to make the eyeliner really precise. I only did my right eye with the design because I felt like both eyes with the "bird-wings" would be to much,especially if you're going to a bar or a restaurant to watch the game. It's very festive with just the one eye, and it'll make people do a double glance. Here's how I created this look...

PRODUCTS USED: ALL ELF

  • eyelid primer (pearl)
  • 32 piece eyeshadow palette (brights)
  • long lasting lustrous eyeshadow (toast)
  • pigment eyeshadow (golden goddess)
  • liquid liner (black)
  • falsie's (dramatic kit $1)
  • eyebrow kit (dark)
  • eyebrow stencil (soft arch)
  • face primer (radiant glow)
  • complete coverage concealer (dark)
  • tone correcting concealer (spice)
  • tinted moisturizer (expresso)
  • tone correcting powder (warm)
  • pressed powder (almond)
  • contouring blush and bronzer duo(turks and caicos)
  • glitter glosses (sparkling wine, bronzed bling)



TUTORIAL:
start by filling in your brows first, this way when your eye makeup is done you don't have to worry about messing it up when you hold the stencils in place. Hold stencil to your eyebrow, most of your hair should fit inside the stencil, fill in with eyebrow kit, tweeze any stray out of place hairs
Next prime your entire eye with the eyelid primer
Using the 2nd checked color on the last row in the everyday palette, apply this color all over the lid and into the crease
Using the 1st checked color in the last row apply this on top of that color
Taking the pigment eyeshadow in golden goddess, apply this directly on top of the purples only in the inner corner of the eye to about a fourth of the inner part of the eye
Layer the lustrous shadow in toast on top of golden goddess (layer until the true gold shows through)
Using the vanilla color checked in the first row apply this above the crease and to the brow bone
NOW to start lining, I didnt use anything to help me line my eyes for the wings, just good ol steady cat eye lining
Taking your liquid liner, from your crease to the outer corner of your eye draw a line going down (this will help you determine where the 3 wings will go)
Line your top lashline and make a dramatic flick cateye when you get to the outer corner (first wing)
going up a little more directly in your crease, make another dramatic flick cateye, bringing it out more
Starting from the crease again but this time bringing the cateye up towards the eyebrow make another dramatic flick upwards and outwards ending at the end of your eyebrow
Line just the top lashline with a dramatic cayeye on the other eye to keep them guessing
Taking the two purples used on the lid apply them with a smudge brush to the lower lashline, apply toast on the bottom lashline only in the inner corner
apply your dramatic falsie's and apply mascara (if necessary)
curl your lashes into the falsie's
Apply face primer
Apply tinted moisturizer, then spot conceal undereyes, and blemishes
apply the tone correct powder to anywhere u applied concealer
Sweep the pressed powder all over the face
Apply the blush to the apples of the cheeks blending backwards
contour under your cheekbones
apply both glitter glosses AAAANNDD...

YOU ARE GAME DAY READY !!! #GORAVENS
