Mixing all my highlighters together

 

I’m made friends with new youtube LC Flawless and she is a new sweet friend. I’m an empath and like I saw her and I are new friends on youtube and twitter and Instagram and we both separately did videos on mixing ALL our makeup highlights together and we both posted them within a day of each other which I  thought was awesome. She is a sweetie. I also mention my girl Margo Indigo who a lot of you knowI love. Definitely check out LC’s latest highlight collaboration and of course check mine our below. I hope you like my vid here a lot. If you have anything questions about products or anything leave your questions in my comment section below. And thank you for watching my video here!

Psychobilly Look One

I’ve never done a psychobilly makeup tutorial or posted a lot of my psychobilly looks on here so I decided to change that. For those who don’t know what psychobilly is, here are some definitions.

Psychobilly is a rock music fusion genre that mixes elements of Rockabilly and Punk Rock. 

TheFreeDictionary.com defines it as “loud frantic rockabilly music.”

   About.com  says that it takes the traditional countrified  rock style know as rockabilly ramping up its speed to a sweaty pace, and combining it with punk rock, sci-fi, and horror film imagery.  SO DUH, OF COURSE I LOVE IT!

As far as my definition goes as psychobilly makeup, I believe it’s taking the traditional rockabilly makeup and amping it up with  bright colors, different color lipstick rather than classic red, different color combinations, more eyeliner, longer lashes, etc.

Here is a blue and green psychobilly look and tutorial which is a color combo that I don’t use a lot in makeup. This look was a new one for me and was fun to do and play around with. MAKEUP SHOULD ALWAYS BE FUN! THAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING! IF MAKEUP ISN’T FUN, THAN REALLY WHAT’S THE POINT?

Enjoy and listed below are the colors and products I used:

EyeShadows:

First I used “Safe Word,” as a transition shade from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics palette, “Androgyny.” 

Second I used the green color “EXU,” from the Urban Decay Jean-Michel Basquiat palette. I spray MAC cosmetics Prep and Prime Fix on my brush before dipping it into the green.

Third color I used was also from the “Androgyny” palette in the dark blue shade, “Swallow,” just about my crease.

My crease color is from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics palette, “Beauty Killer” in the sparkly blue shade, “Expensive.” I sprayed my angled shadow brush again with the prep and prime to make the blue glitter pop and put it in my crease and slowly dragged it down to the outer corner of my lid.

The last color I used in my inner corners is “Rich Bitch” from “Beauty Killer.” I sprayed my detailed brush and pressed the glittery gold in the inner corners of my eyes to make them pop. 

I really love this color combination.

I did my eyeliner wings as normal but made them longer and more extreme. Underneath my eyes I took a small brush and lined my eyes in the two blue colors I used on top, darker at the outer corner, brighter blue towards the inner. I applied mascara to both top and bottom lashes and lined my waterline with Urban Decay 24/7 waterline in black.

For my highlight, I used my David Bowie highlighter from Bitch Slap Cosmetics and used blush from Stila in both “Romantic” and “Playful.”

Last for my lipstick, I used “Venus Fly Trap” from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Chrome Collection. I normally wear my classic red lipstick with this look but I thought the green color was a fun alternative. 

My look was then complete and I’m very happy with how it turned out.

 

 

 

How to Quickly Turn Your Everyday Makeup Into a Holiday Look

Since we are in the holiday season, there are usually a lot of events and parties to attend, but sometimes you may not have a lot of time to get ready or you need to go straight to a party from work and won’t have time to redo your entire makeup. Here are some tips, tricks, and ideas to amp up your daily makeup to a more holiday look. All of these are super quick to do and will save you a lot of time. All the items I talk about are small and easy to throw in your purse with no hassle. 

One quick tip: Besides makeup, it’s also a good idea to keep an extra outfit and handbag in your car so you can change on the go without having to stop at home. Also take a bag, even if it’s a ziplock bag that you can put your jewelry in it and put it in your purse so you can quickly take your work jewelry off and replace it with some sexy diamond and bling.

 

 

 

Feel free to use one of these ideas or all of them together. Whatever suits your fancy and will make you feel festive and fabulous!

1. Highlight: Even if you wear highlighter during the day, you can layer it to make it more blinding and beautiful. Use one that has more sparkle to it. You can also intensify you regular highlighter by wetting your brush with a makeup spray such as MAC Prime and Prep Fix or Studio Fix or and then apply it.  The highlighter shown here is “Gator Wings,” from Tarte’s “Swamp Queen” palette.

2. Pigments: Shimmery and glittery pigments are perfect for a glamorous holiday look. There are tons of pigments out there, pressed and loose, and come in every color you can imagine. Just make sure you get pigments that are for the face instead of just going to the craft store to buy a jar of glitter. You obviously don’t want anything to irritate your skin. You can wear and play around with pigments. What I like to do is to take a detail brush, wet it, and apply it over your regular eyeshadow. I think it’s a cool look to also apply a tiny bit on top of your lipstick.

3. Metallic Eyeshadows: Metallic shadows, especially liquid metallic shadows are very popular and come in a huge variety of colors. You can get very creative with these. I find that the liquid helps you control your application better. You can use them as eyeliner, put a little in the inner corners of your eye to brighten and make them pop more, or cover your entire lid. However creative you are feeling you should do.

Another thing I like is roll on eyeshadows. Especially when they have a little shimmer. Like liquid shadows, I feel the roller helps you control where you want to place your shadow. You can even use them as a highlighter.  

For metallic eyeshadows, I love Stila’s Magnificent Metals. I love rose gold so of course, my favorite metallic shade is “Rose Gold Retro.” I also like the roll on eye shadows by NYX, especially in the “Nude” color.

4. Waterline: This is the easiest tip to do. Applying eyeliner to your waterline instantly changes your day look into a smoldering sexy look. For this, I like “Waterline 24/7” by Urban Decay.

5. Lip Toppers: These are pretty to wear on top of your lipstick or even just by itself. It’s a two second way to glam up your makeup. Just apply a little to just the center of your lips to give them dimension. I love the lip toppers by Jouer cosmetics. The colors are lovely and smell delicious like vanilla. My favorite is again the rose gold. 

These  are again just ideas.

I hope you enjoyed these ideas and that everyone has a very happy holiday!

Here’s a review vid on this cosmetic line that I recently discovered not too long ago. This was really fun to do and review. My favorite part was reviewing my hot new Freddy Krueger highlighter. Horror and makeup. What could be better?
