HOW-TO: A WEARABLE ALTERNATIVE TO UNDERCOVER’S AW 14 BLOOD RED EYESHADOW
By Hannah Smith for Powder Doom

So, here’s a more wearable version of the Undercover AW 14 look: red eyeliner but much softer and less dramatic, for days when you need to look more toned down or don’t feel like drowning your face in powder.

[EDITORS NOTE: Only use red makeup that explicitly states it is safe to use on/around your eyes/waterline - please be safe!]

Neonite: Lacquered Electric Pink Lips and Teal Liner

Not for the faint of heart! (I promise more neutral looks are coming up soon LOL.)

This is a look that combines neutrals with “pop” colors like teal and electric pink, so it’s loud, but it’s not entirely insane. Yet.

Tip:

To rein it in a bit, all you need to do is to replace the shimmery green with a gold shadow, and the teal liner with a brown or black.

Base: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation 52

Concealer: Mac Studiofinish Concealer NW20

Powder: Bourjois Poudre de Riz de Java 

Brows: Shu Uemura Hard Formula 9 in Seal Brown + Canmake Coloring Brow Mascara 01

This look was inspired by the UK X-Factor Winner, Louisa Johnson. She was often seen on the show sporting a fresh dewy look, with silver holographic glitter, and glossy lips.
I thought it was PERFECT for NYE - a nice change from all the heavy looks we see so often this time of year. This is a quick and simple, but effective makeup look.

Holiday Look #12: Charcoal and Pink (88 Shimmer Palette and MAC Pink Nouveau)

A soft charcoal eye with soft pink lips. Unlike the Pink Nouveau look a while back, the lipstick is applied very lightly, and concentrated in the center of the lips, for a slight ombre effect. 

If you like bright pink but find it a bit scary on you, try wearing it this way with a nude pencil instead!

Base: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation 52

Concealer: MAC Studiofinish Concealer NW20

Powder: none used for this look

Blush: Laniege Pure Radiant Blush #3

Brows: Shu Uemura Hard Formula 9 Pencil in Grey

Grey cream shadow: Diorshow Fusion Mono in Aventure

Powder shadows: All from 88 Shimmer palette (Coastalscents.com); dark charcoal shade used in step 2 is the darkest shade at the bottom right of the palette.

Black liner: Maybelline Master Drama in Midnight Drama

Mascara: Maybelline Great Lash mascara

Lipliner: Givenchy lip pencil #3

Reader's Choice - February '14 Beauty Hits & Misses!

I’ve always thought of DrugstorePrincess as a sort of beauty community - slash - online magazine, through which we could learn from one another.  In an attempt to get back to my blogging roots, I thought, “what better way than to get my amazing readers to give me some of their thoughts?!"  So much of DSP is myself giving you MY thoughts, and to be honest, my thoughts bore me sometimes.  YOUR thoughts on the other hand, are exciting and brand new and fascinating to me.  So thanks to some really amazing, kind, thoughtful readers of mine (who you will be able to meet later in this post), I have created this treat of a post for you.  This Hits and Misses post for February 2014 is filled with YOUR thoughts on some of the hottest, newest, and coolest beauty products of the now… good AND bad!  Enjoy, and look for MY Hits and Misses to come later!

Soft Mint Lids (Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Eyes in DR3 Vert Mystere)

This is a defined, but still soft eye, done using one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes in the world, Lancome’s Vert Mystere, which is a collection of soft neutrals and 2 gorgeous jade-greens.

(It’s named after tea, but the green leans slightly cool, and looks more like jade.)

For those of you who aren’t ready to go for strong, bright colors but are tempted to step beyond neutrals, check out this palette or this group of colors. 

Products used:

Base: Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation 52

Concealer: Addiction Perfect Concealer No 1

Powder: (I wanted a bit of sheen so didn’t use any for this look. If you’re going to be out and about in warm weather, set with translucent powder!)

Cheeks: Shu Uemura Bijoux collection Silk Cushion Cheek Blusher in Rose Quartz

Brows: Shu Uemura Hard Formula 9 Pencil in Seal Brown

Eyeshadows: Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Eyes DR3 Vert Mystere

Mascara: Maybelline Great Lash in Blackest Black

Lipstick: Shu Uemura Bijoux collection lipstick in Opal Pink
