Hello you lovely ladies (and gents if there are any out there)! I was digging through my makeup a few weeks ago, trying to organize and pack things to move to my new apartment. At the same time, I was thinking about doing a purple look of some sort, because even though I'm hearing over and over again that purples make brown eyes pop, it's not a color I'm drawn to when doing my makeup. So here is a purple glam look, perfect for clubbing or homecoming, which is unfortunately created with eyeshadows that are either discontinued or unavailable to most people in the United States. Obviously I didn't really think this through. I just wanted to use some products that I have not touched in a long time. At least they are colors that can be easily replaced! :D
In any case, here is the list of products used:
-Wet n Wild Idol Eyes: Techno
-NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil: Cottage Cheese
-Inglot eyeshadow: Dark purple w/green and pink shimmer
-Milani Shadow Wear Quad: 07 Wild Violets [DISCONTINUED]
-UD 24/7 Glide on Pencil: Zero
-L'oreal Collagen Mascara
-L'oreal True Match Foundation: Honey Beige (N6)
-Smashbox Pressed Powder: Fair/Light
-Stila Bronzing Powder: Shade 01
-Milani Glimmer Strips: Berry Glimmer [DISCONTINUED]
-Smashbox Under Eye Brightener
-Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick: On the Mauve
-Bare Escentuals Buxom Lipgloss: Amber
Here's my messy messy desk with the crapload of stuff I used for the look.
And here are more pictures of this look :D
If you do decide to try out this look, it would be SO INCREDIBLY AWESOME if you send me pics! Lots of them! Same with looks for any of my other tutorials.
Boy my internet is slow. Dang lack of bandwidth.....
So my boyfriend came across this video one day and urged me to watch it. It was a bit lengthy and I was most definitely reluctant at first, but I assure you it is very easy to follow. This video elaborates on the dangers of everyday products that we use, targeting beauty produts especially because women use so much of it. I think that most of us are aware that most products contain small amounts of silicone or some other harmful product, and we usually think that the small amounts are not enough to cause any significant health problems. However, as the video brings to attention, they are only not harmful if we used the products in moderation, which is rarely the case. Men use an average of 6 products daily, while women use an average of 12. In addition to those health products, we are also constantly exposed to cleaning detergents, pesticides, and other chemicals that can make us very sick over time. The FDA (Food & Drug Administration) actually does little to regulate these products. So when we bring them into our home, we cannot necessarily blame ourselves, because we only have so much to choose from. In addition, the label “organic” has no legal standards, and companies do not have to have organic ingredients in their products to label it organic. Furthermore, companies are not required to list all their ingredients, which I find incredibly frightening. Luckily, some companies do have standards, and care about their consumers as much as their profits so not every item out there is dangerous. Even so, this video should serve as a warning or precaution as we continue to be exposed to harmful chemical infused products everyday.
