FOTD: Sweet Tart

I was supposed to do this post on Sunday but I got a little busy. Then yesterday we had some crazy earthquake here and a whole lot of after shocks so I was a little distracted and forgot all about this look I'm supposed to do. By the way I cut my hair over the weekend :D. It was already growing out and I like my hair short so I decided to cut it.

I realize I haven't done any FOTD with my Revlon Lip Butter yet thus I am making this post . This look is a shimmery grey smokey eye which is just perfect with pink lips. I wanted to keep the eyes dramatic with a soft touch by skipping the eyeliner on the bottom lash line. I did apply cream eyeliner on my upper lash line and water line to define my eyes and make it look fuller. It's a sexy romantic look that's great for Valentine's Day dinner.

The eye shadow I used are from my Elf 32 piece warm palette. I just love this palette because it has all the colors I need when creating a gorgeous smokey eye. They are easy to work with because it's blendable and buildable, and they don't crease! 

Here's what I did to achieve this look:

I placed a light brown shadow on my crease and a little above it as my transition color. Then I used a shimmery grey on the inner 2/3 of my lid, a darker grey on the outer third, and a charcoal black on the outer corners. On my crease I added a touch of pink to add warmth to the eyes. I then applied loads of mascara to add drama to the look. For a sexier eyes, wear falsies!

On my cheeks I used my NYC Sunny bronzer to sculpt my face and a hint of ELF tickled pink blush on the apples of my cheeks. I also applied some highlighter on the tops of my cheeks, the bridge of my nose, and my cupid's bow. 

I didn't use a foundation for this look because I want it to look subtle-y dramatic, so no heavy makeup :). Besides Danahan BB Cream has a medium coverage so it's really all I need. Then I lightly set it with a loose powder to keep my makeup from melting.

On my lips I have nothing but my Revlon Lip Butter :D.

Products Used:

Danahan BB Cream
Garnier Eye BB Roll-On

NYC Bronzer in Sunny

This look is very easy to do. It only took me about 15 minutes but I was taking my time when I was putting it all together :). It seems like I used a lot of product to create this look but it was really only a little of everything.



  1. I love the dramatic eyes! I think this is one of the first times I've seen such a dramatic look from you. Gorgeous!
