   Even tho my makeup style is mostly  vintage pinup and old hollywood glam, I love trying new makeup looks and doing different tutorials. I definitely rocked gothic makeup in high school, surprise surprise but at times I went a little too heavy handed with my black makeup. For my “Mrs. Freddy Krueger” and my “Gothic Halloween Beauty” shoot, I wanted to create a dark and smoky look infused with glitter and glam and I’m very happy with how it turned out. Here are the makeup products I used and how I applied them.

FOUNDATION: Marc Jacobs Re(mark)able, Ivory 10.

EYESHADOWS:

   The first eye color put on my lids was the color ‘Vanity’ from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics “Beauty Killer” palette. After wetting a synthetic brush with my MAC prep & prime, I then applied ‘Black Rainbow’ also from the Beauty Killer palette over ‘Vanity.’ Wetting the brush and then dipping it into ‘Black Rainbow’ makes the black more intense  without looking blotchy and makes the sparkle really pop. Under the brow bone. I used an eyeshadow color that I never use….. shimmery white shadow. I really dislike white shimmer shadow but it happened to work with this look. I used the color ‘Lily’ from my Models Own “Vintage Rose” palette which is a fabulous palette with eyeshadow like butter so atleast I was using a white shimmer from a palette I love. I applied it just underneath the brow bone and blended it out to give my shadow colors a nice gradation.

   I love Stila’s metal metallic (Glitter and Go) liquid shadows and recently had purchased the color, ‘Molten Mignight’ which is black shadow with glitter. I used it as eyeliner as well as in the inner corners of my eyes and applied it with my finger to intensify it. The last eye shadow I used was Colourpop’s Super Shock shadow, ‘New Magic’ from the “Dusk Till Dawn” collection. These are one of the best glitter shadows I’ve ever used and they are cream and feel soft and bouncy while the glitter is mess free which I love. Again I used my finger to apply the beautiful white glitter barely in the inner corners of my eyes but not so I covered my Stila liquid glitter shadow. I used the white glitter closer to my nose. I then also patted ‘New Magic’ under my eyes, dragging it towards my cheeks.

OTHER EYE MAKEUP PRODUCTS:

The rest of my eye makeup included me taking a flat shadow brush and smoking out a little ‘Black Rainbow’ under my eyes. I also used my Urban Decay 24/7 waterline eye liner as my only liner in this look. I used my new favorite mascara, “Lights, Camera, Lashes” by Tarte and Anastasia’s “Dipbrow” in ‘Chocolate.’

LAST MAKEUP PRODUCTS TO COMPLETE MY LOOK :

You May not be able to tell in every photo but I did use blush and highlighter. For blush I used ‘Romantic” from Stila. For highlighter I  changed it up a bit. For my highlight, I used ‘Wink’ which is actually a shimmer shadow from the “Feline Fancy” palette from one of my all time favorite makeup companies, Sugarpill Cosmetics. I can’t rave enough about them.  For my lips, I used their brand new limited edition liquid lip color, ‘Trick’ which is a gorgeous witchy matte black color with metallic green and orange sparkles. It was the absolute perfect lipstick to complete this look. 

I had a lot of fun creating and wearing this makeup look. I hope you try recreating this look and try one or all of the products used. I’d love to see all of your spooky sex kitten looks. 

My Blood Sugar Palette Review

This palette was a HUGE HIT FOR ME. I’ve been practicing eye looks with almost all the colors and it is my favorite Jeffree Star Cosmetics palette. DEFINITELY BUY OR PRE-ORDER THIS PALETTE ON JEFFREESTARCOSMETICS.COM OR AT BEAUTYLISH! YOU CAN DO SO MANY LOOKS WITH THIS PALETTE DESPITE YOUR MAKEUP STYLE!

Blood Sugar Palette from the LOVE SICK COLLECTION

Whenever Jeffree Star puts out a new collection, I always get excited and the collections are always fabulous. When he revealed his latest makeup collection,
“Love Sick Collection,” I absolutely lost it with my ecstatic excitement. The whole collection is in my favorite color which immediately caught my eye and then I saw the new ” Blood Sugar” eyeshadow palete with other products on his reveal video and instantly couldn’t wait for the launch date.

   **At the very bottom of this article, I included Jeffree’s reveal of the LOVE SICK COLLECTION including this palette plus other products from this collection, such as other lipscrubs, lipsticks, and more.

When he launched “Love Sick”, I pre-ordered the “Blood Sugar” palette and bought a few other goodies from the collection such the sexy new red cosmetic case that can hold a full sized palette which is very cool. I also bought the new “Candy Necklace” velour lip scrub which is so yummy and a great addition to my lip scrub collection.

I received my “Blood Sugar” palette last week and I’m so in love with it. The packaging is the absolute best. It’s a one of a kind red faux leather box with metal clasps. It comes with 18 gorgeous shades, in 3 formulas, metal, matte, and pressed glitter. The names of the pigmented shades are so cute and very appropriate for this palette. The details of this palette is so cute with the stamps of some of the shadows such as medical needle and a medical symbol, which I included a closeup picture here.

The best thing about this palette is that I can create so many looks and styles with just this palette from traditional, vintage, pinup makeup, to sexy smoldering, psychobilly, natural, and more. I’m an artist and I always love being creative and like to create art in the makeup genre. Makeup is definitely an art form.

    I wanted to write this article to give and share my first impressions and review on this makeup collection and I definitely plan on posting pictures of me with different makeup looks using just it in the future.

 The “Love Sick” collection is yet again another fantastic collection of makeup and products from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. Everything Jeffree puts out I love but this collection is my favorite from him and out of all the eyeshadow palettes he’s put out, the BLOOD SUGAR PALETTE IS my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE PALETTE!

It’s obvious that I recommend this  collection especially the eye shadow palette. The palette sells quickly but you can still pre-order at jeffreestarcosmetics.com and at beautylish.com.
