I never posted this here! 

So like, my friend Jaidy and I are kinda obsessed with this musical, Razia’s Shadow.

And the official studio recording has Brendon Urie in it and his character is like this leader of like this dark and demonic kind of place and I just can’t get the image of Brendon Urie dressed in like a black general’s uniform with black eye liner smudged all over his eyes out my head. I’m so in love with this musical. I wanted to try something art nouveau-ish.

Annabelle Eyeliner Reviews

Hey guys, this is a review on two of the Annabelle eyeliners- the Kohl liner and the Smudgeliner. Both are really inexpensive and you can probably purchase them at any drugstore (although Walmart would be cheaper). Both come in many colours ranging from the neutrals, like black or brown, to vibrant, bright colours like blue or purple. 

Annabelle Kohl Eyeliner

The one I have is the green one- 109 Lotus. The label says it is hypo-allergenic. I’ve had this for a while now but hardly ever used it. This is why:

  • Hardly any pigmentation
  • Not creamy at all
  • Does not glide on easily
  • Doesn’t last long

Here is a swatch:

As you can see, it’s not that pigmented, which I don’t like.

I’m not sure if the neutrals are any better, but I also have the purple one (lost it unfortunately) and it pretty much sucks just as much, so I suggest testing it out on your hand before purchasing. There are many other drugstore liners that are a lot better than these ones, though I’m not sure if there are as many colors. 

Don’t think that just because these ones suck that the Smudge liners are crap as well! In reality….

Annabelle Smudgeliner Eyeliner

I have this one in Atomic Surf, a really nice turquoise color. It comes with a smudge brush at the end (I lost the cap of mine :( ). The label claims it is ophthalmologist tested.

This eyeliner is actually one of my favorites ever because

  • It’s suppppeerr pigmented
  • Really creamy
  • Slides on beautifully
  • Has an extremely subtle metallic shine to it which brightens up the eyes
  • The smudge brush that comes along with it helps smudge it out, making a really nice smokey effect
  • Lasts quite long, for a couple of hours, by itself. Would last really long if you set it with powder!

Look how pigmented it is!!!!!!!!!! :D (especially compared to the kohl liner right next to it….)

Again, I don’t have it in any neutral colors but I definitely love the one I have. Usually, I would wear this on the bottom lash line, with either white or black on the water line (depending how dramatic I wanna be) and a black liquid liner to line the top. Top it off with mascara and your eyes will look beautiful! I will definetely try out the different colors once I have time to get it and let you all know how it is! 

Thanks for reading and I hope I helped you! xoxo- Melissa


Grunge glam for everyone 😈✨

Created this look for day two of the Discover 7 Days of Makeup Challenge by @undiscovered_muas on Instagram! Day twos theme (which is actually tomorrow) is Plunge Into Grunge! ✊✌️ See the previous look I posted for today’s theme, Under the Sea:

I started the eye by smudging a black gel liner and blending it out with a dark purple in my lower and middle crease and a medium toned red shade in my upper crease. Lastly, I blended it out with a soft peach shade. It takes a bit of blending but looks really nice when it’s done well. Kept the rest of the look very, very matte.

My brows got messy today yikes I am so sorry!! 🙈🙊

Tip for you to try if you feel compelled because Stila is my fav. Buy the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Liner and do your line in that first, then go over it with the Stay All Day Liner. Your wings will be out of control and will literally stay no matter what you're doing. It's beautiful 💕

ayy nice thank u


Aaaaaand she’s back! Oh San Francisco, how I missed you. Felt like playing with my Naked3 palette today and I really like how this look turned out.

In the crease I’m wearing Caregiver from the Tarte Tartelette palette, then from Naked3, Limit, Nooner, and Darkside. On the lid I’m wearing Mugshot on the inner and outer corners and a combination of Dust, Burnout, and Trick on the center of the lid. Blackheart in the outer v. I used Nooner and Darkside to smudge out a purple liner on the lower lashline. My liquid liner is Kat Von D Tattoo liner in Trooper and my mascara is Benefit Roller Lash layered over Too Faced Better Than Sex.

Face is Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation, Smashbox Contour Kit, NYX HD Concealer, and Benefit Dandelion blush. Lipstick is Buxom Full-On Lipstick in Dolly.

(PS, septum is fake.)

I don’t even see guyliner as “guy eyeliner”

I see it as black pencil liner lazily smudged around the eye because that’s the only style that’s “”“"masculine”“”“ enough to still be called "guy”

Love yourself and just use it on your upper lid and waterline and smudge it into your lashes so that there isn’t a separation between eyeliner and your eyeball

anonymous asked:

in the selfie you posted recently (you're so gorgeous!!) how did you do your makeup? sorry if this is an annoying ask it just looked really nice and natural and i wanted to recreate it if possible

goodness i’m blushing thank you very much. the selfie is here for reference (if you love me you’ll reblog my selfie).

as for the makeup, it’s pretty simple. 

  • i don’t like wearing foundation, so i’ll just pop some concealer (maybelline fit me) onto my blemishes. 
  • then i’ll do my eyeshadow (all shadows from the balm’s nude tude palette): 
    • a wash of a sheer shimmery medium brown from my lash line to the crease in my eyelid. 
    • then i take a smudging brush - not a liner brush - and use it to apply a dark brown eyeshadow as eyeliner on my top and bottom lash lines, extending the line outwards just a bit. i like using a smudging brush because it gives a smokier, messier look, which ends up being much softer and more natural than if you used a liner brush.
  • then lashes:
    • shu uemura curler - this is probably the most important step
    • integrate mascara (this is a japanese brand and i picked it up in japan in december; i am absolutely i love with it (this is my third tube) but if you can’t get your hands on it i also love the maybelline falsies mascara); i also usually go for two coats
  • then brows:
    • i use the anastasia brow pomade and an angled hard-bristle brow brush. this is a MAGICAL combination for my eyebrows, which need a lot of drawing in. i actually did a really bad job with my eyebrows that day haha but i promise this combo works wonders
    • i start at the “tail” of the brow (i have to draw this bit in) and then with what’s left on the brush gently feather it into the front of my brow.
  • then bronzer:
    • i take nyc’s sunny bronzer and a powder brush and apply some as a contour: under my cheekbones, along my jawline, a little near my temples.

so yeah i know that seems like a lot but in practice this look takes me less than 5 minutes. i could probably do this look in the three minute makeup challenge? hope this helps!

How to guide

An ongoing series on how to do everything from pop a spot to how to achieve the perfect feline flick. From the gross to the glamorous, follow our simple beauty guide.

Shrink pores

1. Exfoliate your face to break up dirt and oil, then use the old beauty trick of splashing with cold water.

2. Opt for a pore-tightening serum. Clarins, No7 and Vichy all do great ones.

3. Select a blurring primer and, using a sponge, apply to your face.

4. Shun heavy foundations in favour of lighter bases, such as a BB or CC cream. These tend not to sit in your pores. Also steer clear of highlighting products.

Stop liner from smudging

First and foremost, to avoid the dreaded pander eye look don’t rub your peepers. Easier said than done, as hands tend to wander up to the eye area out of habit when tired.

Another tip is to make sure you’ve used an eye primer and waterproof liner. Then pat powder over the line - only use a dab though otherwise you’ll lose the effect.

File your nails

Filing your nails is important to stop them from splitting. This means do not file in both directions!

1. Opt for a crystal nail file, as a standard emery board can also be bad news for your talons.

2. Take time to actually file, and do so towards the tip of your nail on each side of your finger.

3. Start by filing the sides to get the shape you want, then finish the tip in one direction.
