Goldilux Lyps

Hey diamonds
this is a simple Gold lip. I used NYX jumbo eye pencil in Yellow and topped it with Sugarpill's pigment in Goldilux! if you want a tutorial let me know!

Make sure to moisturize your lips before applying any product!

Lip Liner Collection

Hey diamonds,
      here is my lip liner collection. I recorded my lipgloss collection but with all my coughing & the amount of glosses  it ended up being a 37 minute video. So back to the drawing board I go,  and I will divide it into mini videos by brand. Thanks for your patience!

P.S I am sick so....



brands mentioned
Sephora, MAC, NYX, AVON, Prestige, Jordana

I will go through each color family and show you my favorite products in that color range. This will be in NO particular order and products will vary!

So to start us off BLACK; this color is very dark and mysterious but can be very sexy and sultry if used properly!

Mac lipstick black knight

TOP: Fi.r pigment onyx 
CENTER: Urban decay e/s oil slick

Hey Diamonds, 
So I was requested to do more looks using products you can find in the drugstore. As I always say, you do not have to use the products I or anybody else uses to achieve the same look. USE WHAT YOU HAVE!!! If you have any of the 88 or 120 palettes from Coastal Scents or BH Cosmetics, you can create any look you want. BUT as per the request this look (eyes only) uses Drugstore products, mainly Covergirl Eyeshadows!

A Bold Goldilux!

                     

Aside from purple I really love a good Gold. Gold  seems to go well with every color! The Maybelline 24 hour tattoo cream eyeshadow in Bold Gold is great by itself, but ya'll know I needed a little more POP! So I grabbed my sample of SugarPill's Goldilux pigment (heaven on earth) and placed it on top of Bold Gold. 
I was really sick, and well makeup always makes me feel good...only if my hubby isn't around *giggle*
I'm in a happier place now.
 
Would you diamonds like me to do a look with all the 24 hr tattoo eyeshadows? Let me know and I will get them rolling for you!
