Double SNOW WHITE Tutorial, Part 1

IMG_1651

Good morning everyone. I’ve said this many times but for those who didn’t know, my nickname is “Snow White,” and has been since I was little due to my really dark hair, brown eyes, and fair skin. My family members and friends still call me that. Because of this and that I’ve always loved Snow White and have embraced having her as my nickname I decided to do a Snow White tutorial. Her look is very on point to my beauty style, hence why I get called her, and wanted to show step by step instructions to create a fairy tale Snow White makeup look. 

   Now this makeup look is very beautiful and very simple so I decided to do a two part makeup Snow White tutorial; THE FIRST STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL HERE IS MY SNOW WHITE TUTORIAL BEFORE SHE EATS THE POISON APPLE BY THE EVIL QUEEN/WITCH.

   THE SECOND TUTORIAL COMING UP AFTER THIS, IS MY PERSONAL SNOW WHITE TUTORIAL AFTER SHE EATS AND SURVIVES THE APPLE! OF COURSE SHE SURVIVES THE POISON, SHE GETS POISONED BY A WITCH AND SHE IS SNOW WHITE, WHICH IS MY NICKNAME AND I’M A WITCH! BOOM!!!!

Here is my first innocent Snow White step by step tutorial. It’s a a very simple tutorial that anyone can wear on a daily basis. It’s a very beautiful vintage Disney look that anyone of any skin tone can pull off. I’ll tell you exact what I did to create this look plus the products I used:

For my first step, I applied my foundation with a beauty blender and I used Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)able full coverage foundation. It’s great full coverage so I didn’t need concealer.

   The second thing I did after applying my foundation was to set it with powder. I decided to use my gorgeous LaMer setting powder. That setting powder is definitely a luxury powder and has very fine mica sparkles in it to give your face a soft beautiful finish. Under my eyes, I used the Laura Mercier  Secret Brightening Powder to  help make my eyes sparkle even more.

The third step was doing my eye makeup. This is very easy to recreate. Snow White didn’t really wear eye shadow or eyeliner, especially my signature pinup winged liner. She was a natural beauty. I still wanted to give her a light eye definition so this was I used:

For eyeshadow, I first used my “Tako” white shadow from Sugar pill just in the inner corners. Then I used my classic favorite nude eyeshadow Revlon color stay quad and took the lightest color and swept it all over my eyelid. I wanted to give my crease a light definition so from the same Revlon quad palette, “Addictive 500,” I took the second to lightest shade with the same brush I used before and swept it the crease.

                     For eyeliner, I used my Laura Mercier cake eyeliner to give a little definition. Again I wasn’t planning on doing a big wing so I used the cake liner just to simply line my eyes making them look bigger. I curled my lashes and applied my Clinique High Impact mascara just on my top lashes. Again the purpose of this makeup look is basically to make the eyes look bigger like Snow White.

                    For my brows I kept them natural and just used the dark brown brow gel from Brow Bar by Reema just to keep the hairs in place.

After that I applied a soft pink blush to just the apples of my cheeks to give a natural flushed look. For my blush, I used my MAC Peony Pink blush.

For my last step for this look, all I had left was lipstick. Snow White had beautiful red lips so finding a good red lip color was very easy for me. I used the 24/7 Urban Decay lip liner in 714 and my Jeffree Star Velour liquid lip in “Cherry Wet.”  I then set my makeup with my new cherry matte setting spray from Pacifica beauty.

Those are all my steps to create my “Snow White” makeup tutorial, (before she eats the poison apple.) Stay tuned for part 2 of this tutorial to see what I look like after surviving the poison.

   The Poison Apple and Snow White necklace are from my girl  Luna Moon Gothic and my flower apple hair clip is from Pinups and Pearls.

Happy 4th of July

To all my American friends, I want to wish you a Happy 4th of July and to enjoy all your celebrations today!

I’m starting my morning off watching Annabelle 2. There’s nothing like watching a horror movie while you’re drinking your first cup of coffee.

Good Foggy Morning

There is nothing better than getting up earlier than usual, like me this morning, brewing your delicious coffee to pour into your Beetlejuice coffee mug, watch “Lords of Salem,” in your matching sweater while the morning begins and you see the beautiful misty morning fog. But that’s just me. Wink wink!

Sunday Morning Coffee Chat, Why Skincare is so IMPORTANT

IMG_9587

Good morning everyone. It’s 8:08 am here and having my coffee out of my BRAND NEW “Fueled by Crystals and Coffee,” which is perfect and I’m so glad I found it because you all know I collect crystals and do crystal magic. I also am an avid coffee mug collector.

Today’s Sunday Morning Coffee Chat is important. You all know I have A LOT of beauty and makeup knowledge from learning things on my own, learning different products and their ingredients, working in cosmetics, etc, and it seems to me that the vast majority of younger girls and boys like teenagers/early 20’s care more about makeup than actually taking care of their skin. They don’t usually have a skincare routine, or won’t wash their makeup off before bed which is my BIGGEST MAKEUP PET PEEVE.

Here’s a perfect example, when I worked in cosmetics at Macy’s, there were two girls who one was 19 who wore so much makeup I thought she was 40 and the other girl was 20. Both of them are sweet girls, that I’m still in contact with and I’M DEFINITELY NOT BASHING THEM,  but they both always wore so much makeup to work, which makes sense because we are dealing with makeup and beauty, and one of them admitted to me she rarely ever washes her face before she goes to bed, not even with a makeup remover wipe which aren’t always the best at getting everything off either. I was very grossed out hearing that. After the two girls quit, they came into visit and neither of them had no makeup on at all and both of their faces had MASSIVE BREAKOUTS. The cause of that is mainly if not completely, not washing your face before bed and have a skincare routine. 

No matter your age, the sooner you get into a good skincare routine and learn basic skin issues like how to not cause breakouts, the better. My mom, who at 65 has beautiful skin with not botox or fillers, taught me at a very young age to always take care of my skin and if I had any breakouts, I knew how to clear them up fast because of how my mom taught me and those tips and tricks she shared with me, I still use to this day.

The last important thing about why you should always take care of your skin, which by the way, if you don’t know your skin type or don’t know how to take care of your skin, go to a dermatologist. There is nothing wrong with that, they are all over, and they don’t cost a lot to see. The last important thing is that the more your skin is fresh and clear and smooth, you won’t have to cake on the makeup as much if ever, and it will shorten your beauty routine and save your some money on makeup. Face makeup is to cover imperfections but if you don’t have any, why waste your time and money using it?

Anyways everyone, thank you for checking out another edition to “Sunday Morning Coffee Chat” with Carlie. Wishing everyone a magical and beautiful day.

XOXO CARLIE

Good Early Morning

Normally when I write me good morning posts, I usually switch off between this site and my art site, but today I decided to post the same early tiny morning article at the same time so enjoy! XOXO

   It’s currently 4:55 AM and I couldn’t fall back asleep so I decided that I might as well get up, have my coffee and get some work done before starting my day. In the meantime, I want to wish everyone a wonderful day or evening depending on where you are in the world. It says it’s supposed to be cloudy with some rain but who knows? The weather seems to change almost daily.

  Do something nice for yourself today, even if it’s one of the simple pleasures we have like having a good cup of coffee.
