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.

           

Top 5 of my Favorite Drugstore Makeup Brands

Here are my top favorite drugstore brands that I’ve been using for a long time. It wasn’t easy choosing just five so I had to have a think about it for a but but I I’m happy what I chose. I wanted to do this list to show that you can find and purchase fabulous makeup without blowing all your moola. You can find all these brands mainly at Target, Ulta, and Walgreens.

1. Soap and Glory: I know it’s like duh, why would I now have this on my list? But it’s true, I love love love this brand. I love their primer, skin moisturizers and I wear my sleep accelerator every night. I even got my mom into using their mousse moisturizer. They also make one of my all time favorite mascaras and it’s nice to have a brand you like that make both cosmetics and skin care that you enjoy. I pretty much like everything by them.

Thick & Fast™ Flash Extensions Effect Mascara

2. Pacifica: I discovered this brand a few months ago while browsing through Ulta and I’m so glad I did. Their Micellar Crystal Water is my favorite item by them and I use it every night and save the little crystals from the bottle when I finish it. Their products work so well and are gentle on the skin. I enjoy their daily moisturizer and their rose water spray as well. I definitely recommend checking all their cruelty free products.

3. E.L.F: Ok first off I’m embarrassed because my little cousins, Shiri and Rose had to tell me what E.L.F stood for. Haha, true story.  BY THE WAY, WHEN THEY COME OUT TO VISIT ME OR WHEN I VISIT THEM NEXT THE TWO OF THEM ARE DOING A FUN BEAUTY VIDEO/S!!! I hadn’t used to much of their products in the past but I’m loving that brand more and more now. My latest thing that I’m obsessed with is the Elf Jelly Pop Kit! It’s perfect for a sweltering hot summer or when you don’t want to do a full face of makeup. I also love their purple primer, and setting spray.

4. Wet n Wild: Ok I have said this many times but this brand has really stepped up their game since I was about 13. The last unboxing video I did was the Wet n’ Wild, Rebel Rose collection which was the first collection of their’s that came out with skin care. The unboxing was so HUGE I had to do that video review in two parts. If you haven’t watched the videos, definitely check it out. I also did an unboxing video of their Zodiac collection. I’ll post all the links to the articles and videos and the dates that they were posted here below and you can also see the videos in previous articles I posted here reviewing both collections. Besides those collections, their photo focus foundation and setting spray are both fabulous and are perfect for anyone who is on a beauty budget.

5. Revlon: Revlon makes one of the best neutral eye shadow quads for classic vintage pinup eye makeup looks. I showed it off in one of my early 3 part classic vintage makeup tutorials and it’s a great color palette for every day use as well. My favorite is REVLON COLORSTAY in 500 addictive.

Makeup Favorites

I did these videos because I was recently asked about what my favorite makeup products were in terms of my every day and/or emergency “go to” items, such as favorite lipsticks, powders, highlighters, etc. I did two videos because after filming the first one, I realized I forgot to include a few things. Oops. No biggie….hahaha. They were both fun to do and I hope you enjoy them.

This video shows how to do a naturally beautiful vintage pinup eye makeup look from shadow, eye-liner, lashes, brows, and more.

Underneath my video is the products I talked about and used in this video demo!

Hope you enjoy!

Products Used:

  1. Eye Primer- Urban Decay Eye Primer in “Original.”
  2. Eye Shadows- Sugar Pill in “Tako,” and Revlon Colorstay, 16 Hour eye shadow in “Addictive (500)”
  3. Eye Curler- Shiseido
  4. Eye Liner(s)- Kat Von D tattoo liner in “Trooper,” and Makeup Forever Graphic Liner. NOTE: I like to sometimes layer my eyeliners to get more of a beautiful shiny black wing so I definitely combine them at times. If you do this, depending on what liner you use, make sure to have a steady hand and to not layer them all at once. Let atleast one of the liners dry before drawing on top of them. But you ALL KNOW THIS TIP, feel free to always experiment to see what you like and what looks good on you, but not when you’re in a rush.
