1.This make up look is so gorgeous and perfect for the winter or holiday season. The pictures are great but it would have been nice if she took photos that will show you how to do it step by step.

2.She also didn’t mention what kind of brushes she used.

3.Her skin looks dewy and flawless. You can also achieve that look by prepping your skin first. Use a good moisturizer and pat it gently on your skin so that it will be absorbed. Next, use a face primer so that it will help in achieving a flawless finish.

4.You can also use a BB cream instead of foundation. Look for one that has a dewy finish. What’s nice about a BB cream is that it gives you enough coverage but it also makes your skin smooth and supple (depends on the kind of product that is specific on your needs). If there are any imperfections, you can go over that with some creamy concealer.

5.Curl your lashes before applying mascara so that your eyes will look wide awake.

6.The Maybelline Dream Bouncy blush is either a hit or a miss. It may be an interesting product to use because of its texture, but it’s not going to last long. Instead, purchase a cream blush. It will still give that same dewy finish.

1. The eye make literally made her look like she was catching fire. The colors are all beatiful. Sugarpill is known for their super pigmented shades, so you will enjoy great color payoffs.

2. This tutorial is so great because the pictures are of good quality and she was able to teach you how to do this look in an easy-to-follow format.

3. Eyeshadow base is essential for this look because the colors need to stand out. She used a white eyeshadow base for this. White creates a great canvas for these bright shades.

4. You can use cream eyeshadows as your base. However, if you don’t have one, an eye primer will do just fine.

5. This is a very dramatic look that’s great to wear during Halloween.

6. As for the rest of your face, you have to create a flawless face. Prep your skin first and use a face primer. This will ensure that your makeup is applied smoothly. Cover any areas with a good concealer and keep your face matte by using a translucent powder.

7. Use false eyelashes if you want to make your eyes look more dramatic. You can layer two lashes together. Line the lash band with a good quality lash glue. Wait for at least 30 minutes for it to get tacky before sticking it on your lash area.

If you want to go for a quick smokey eye, here’s a tutorial by The MoonMaiden Blix that will teach you how to create this gorgeous make up look!

Tools and Materials Needed:

Make Up Products:
1. Eye Primer
2. Eyeshadow Base
3. Shimmery Black Eyeshadow
4. Gold Eyeshadow
5. Champagne Colored Eyeshadow
6. Black Liquid Eyeliner

Tools:
1. Flat Eyeshadow Brush
2. Blending Brush
3. False Eyelashes

Comments/Suggestions:

1.This is a really pretty eye look that is great for nighttime. It’s also a look that you can wear with anything since it’s pretty neutral.

2.Eyeshadow primers and eyeshadow bases are quite different from each other. A primer helps in preventing your eyeshadows from creasing and it also makes your eye make up last longer. It preps your skin so that the shadows will stick on better. Eyeshadow base on the other hand, creates a blank canvas. It makes the colors look more vibrant. Eyeshadow base is optional, but they are very useful for intense make up looks.

3.You can make your own eyeshadow primer at home! Just mix equal amounts of unscented body butter, cream/liquid foundation and concealer. Put this mixture in a small container so that you can use them in the future. It costs less than the popular ones in the market.

4.You don’t have to buy the exact brands that she has. You can always look for similar alternatives.

5.When it comes to curling your lashes, use a curler that will fit your eye area perfectly. if you want to get long-lasting curls, try to heat it with a blow dryer. Let the blow dryer warm it up for a few seconds or so and then test the heat with your fingers. If it’s tolerably warm, you can then curl your lashes with it.

6.If you want to go for a more innocent, sweeter look, put on a nudish-pink lipstick. Dab a bit of gloss on the middle of your lips and slightly blend it with your pinkie finger.

7.You can make your false lashes appear natural by curling it with your natural lashes and then applying a couple of coats of mascara.

1. It’s a really beautiful make up look. The mom (Jackie Thomas) looks so gorgeous! The pictures are great and the blog post was nicely edited. It’s also nice that they placed pictures of the make up products that they’ve used.

2. It’s recommended that you prep your skin before applying any make up. It will keep your skin smooth and supple.

Start with a clean face and then soak a cotton pad with some toner to help remove any remaining residue and to also minimize the pores. Next, apply a good amount of moisturizer and pat your skin so that the product will be easily absorbed.

You can also use a sheet mask. Let it stay on your face for at least 10-15 minutes. Take out the mask and pat your skin until the serum is absorbed.

3. The eye primer that was used for this tutorial is a little expensive. If you want a cheaper alternative, mix your own primer at home. Combine equal parts of cream/liquid foundation, concealer and body butter.

4. If you want your false lashes to stick on better, allow the glue to get tacky. Wait for at least 30 seconds before applying it on the lash area.

5. Curl your lashes so that they will look more awake.

1. It’s a beautiful make up look – natural and dewy. The pictures are of great quality and the editing was very good because the reader can easily follow through the steps. She also posted pictures of the products that she used.

2. If you’re not a fan of bold eyeliners, you can just use a brown eyeliner pencil and create a thin line just above your eyelids. Curl your lashes and add a couple of coats of mascara.

3. You can use a dewy-finish BB cream if you want to get it all done in one application. What’s great about BB creams is that they instantly give you a fresh look. If you have any imperfections that you want to cover, go over it with a bit of creamy concealer and blend well. Don’t forget to dab a bit of translucent powder (or any powder foundation) on the outer part of your face to balance out the dewiness.

4. Always prep your skin before applying any make up on. Use a moisturizer to keep your skin soft and supple.

5. Try using cream blushes because they give your cheeks a more natural flush.
