Avengers - Black Widow Makeup Look

By cristalena56 · April 16, 2012

Next up in my Avengers series we have Black Widow. I was inspired by the makeup Scarlett Johansson was wearing in Iron Man 2. I paused the movie when their was a close up of her when she was at Hammer's Lab(???) trying to hack into the Ironman suit Rhodes was wearing. I saw she had a shiny white in the inner corner, and gray all over the lid, with a shiny white highlight. It looked bare on the lower lashes but her eye was line with a charcoal black.

Items Used:


*88 Original Palette

*Glamour Dolls Cloud Coverage

*Urban Decay Loose Shadow in Yeyo

*Wet n Wild Coloricon Pencil in Charcoal

*Kiss Fake Lashes

*Maybelline Volume Express One by One Mascara

*Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eye Pen


*MAC Mineralize Satin Finish

*Physicians Formula Natural Powder Blush in Poppy


*NYX Color Lip Balm in Grazie

*NYC Ultra Moist Lip Wear in Dubonnet

You can see that im not very good at putting fake lashes on and no matter what eye liner i tried to use i couldnt get it to go on right or cover to make the fake lashes line blend in..

*I started out by using NYX HD Eye Shadow Base

*Next I took WnW Charcoal and Drew a line to shape my eye for the gray shadow.

*I then filled it in and smudged it with a shadow brush.

*Next I applied Glamour Dolls Cloud Coverage to the inner corner of lid.

*Then patted on top UD Yeyo.

*Next I took the gray from the 88 Palette that was a close match to the gray the comic book character wore and patted it on to the rest of my lid, filling in where i had lined my eye.

*Next I took a lighter gray and patted it on top because in the movie the gray seemed to be a little lighter.

*Next I took my brush and dipped it into Cloud Coverage and Yeyo and applied it as a highlight.

*I then lined my upper lashline with Master Precise and winged it out a bit.

*Next I applied my Mascara.

*Then I applied the fake lashes to complete the look.

*I decided i didnt like the fake lashes because im not very good at applying them. So i took them off and just reapplied my liner.

Notes: Next time i think I will just use Yeyo as a highlight and leave out the Cloud Coverage. I however would still use Cloud Coverage in the inner corner of the lid. I hope you liked my look and don't forget to COMMENT/SUBSCRIBE!! :) Thanks for visiting!! I cant believe I already have 12 followers on Hello Cotton!! Awesome!! :)

Strawberries and Champagne - Beauty From the Earth EOTD

By cristalena56 · February 6, 2012


I got 2 sample baggies in my Beauty From the Earth Blogger Set. For some reason i forgot to post this when i wrote about the other items. Excuse my messy hair in the pics below. I had taken a shower right before this. Was getting ready to go pick my mom up from the airport. I think this could easily be used for a Valentines Day Look.

Items Used:

*BFTE Bubbles - Peachy Pink Duochrome

*BFTE Stunning - Magenta Pink

*Maybelline Master Drama Precise Pen Liner

*Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara


*First I applied NYX Milk to my lids and blended out.

*Next I applied Bubbles onto my lids and to my lower lashline.

*Next I applied Stunning to my crease and rounded it to my lower lashline outer corner.

*Next I applied Maybelline Master Drama Precise Liner and winged out.

*Applied Illegal Length Mascara.

*MAC Tippy Blush

*Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain in Passion


Bubbles is a peachy pink duochrome with a sheen finish. I adored this color. It was love at first sight. I need to order the full size version because i see myself using it a lot. It stayed put and applied smoothly. Didnt take much product to be opaque on the lid.

Stunning is a Magenta Pink with a sheen finish. This one wanted to apply sheer and took a lot of product to show up. Had to keep applying more and more to the crease to get more depth. Too bad really because its a really pretty color. I might need to try it again. I came across another sample i had in classy which i think i could add to this look.

Final Verdict: These colors did last though through my eyes that were having an allergic attack all day. I love BFTE shadows. Some shadows though can be hit or miss. They might look beautiful when you look at them but when applied not very good color payoff. Some also can apply vibrant but in a few min the vibrancy dims. These 2 however vibrancy lasted. Was just disappointed in the color payoff of stunning. Wish it didnt take like 3 or 4 swipes to get the color payoff i was wanting. :/ Bubbles though i highly recommend.

Chocolate Covered Raspberry

By cristalena56 · February 6, 2012

Went to the Downtown Glendale Chocolate Festival Affaire on Sat with my hubby. Its a festival they have annually in the beginning of February. One of the big sponsors is Cerreta. I was told they bought the rights to be the only ones to sell chocolate covered strawberries. Theres all these little booths selling chocolate, wooden roses, dog collars, bath beads, lotions, kettle corn, art, coffee, cocktail mixes, wine, bbq sauce, seasonings and soup, etc... Theres horse and carriage rides, which i got to go on last year. :D So we first stopped to get some wooden roses. They are actually the flowers i had for my wedding 7 years ago(02/19/05). I saw them at a art walk when i was in fl. A french guy named Jean(big shocker lol) made them for us. :) Then we got chocolate covered strawberry, cerreta mint chocolate truffles, candy bars, chocolate mint fudge, chocolate covered cheesecake, lemon cupcake, peppermint cupcake, chocolate drizzled banana and brownie kebob, and a carmel covered apple with peanuts. We took it all home because it was too crowded to enjoy anything :( When leaving we got some home made root beer which is yum. For $4 you get a mug and either get just root beer, a root bear float, or a root beer slushie. Every refill is a $1. We brought our mug from 2 festivals ago and got another.

So I decided to do a look that made me think of chocolate of course.

Items Used:

*Maybelline Color Tattoo Pomegranate Punk

*ELF 24k 15 Piece Palette

*ELF Classic Palette

*Maybelline Master Drama Precise Pen Liner in Black

*Tarte Emphaseyes Clay Liner in Black

*MAC Tippy Blush

*Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain in Passion

*Revlon Pink Lip Gloss

*Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara

*I first applied Pomegranate Punk to my lids.

*I then dabbed my shadow brush into the bright red in the classic palette and the brick red in the 24k palette and patted it onto my lids over the PP. I think also applied it to my lower lashline.

*Next I took the brown from the elf palette and put it in my crease and rounded it around to the outer corner of my lower lashline.

*Next I Applied the Tarte Liner to my upper lashline.

*Next I went over with Master Drama Precise Liquid Liner Pen and winged it out.

*Next I applied Illegal Length Mascara.

I did this look in like 5 min lol because my hubby was wanting to leave and i had did my foundation 3 times because my skin just wasnt wanting to work with my foundation. :/ I think this would be a good vday look. :)

*I applied Ying Yang in the first 1/3 of my lid and blended it into the crease. Then i applied it to my lower lash lineand blendedit up to my outer 1/3 of lid.

*Next I applied Wacky to the mid of my lid, and blended. Packed then on a little more. Then i applied it to the mid of my lower lashline.

*Next I applied  Wave to my crease. I then wet a brush and dipped it into wave and went over it trying to pack on more color(its not the best pigmented shadow.)
