Man of Steel EOTD

By cristalena56 · May 28, 2013

This past weekend was the Annual Phoenix Comicon indowntown phoenix at the convention center. My hubbyand I go every year. We are hoping to one of these days goto the San Diego one. (This one is super hard to get tickets for!!)

I decided for the first day I would wear a Superman look and wear my superman shirt complete with cape. lol I got it for like $8.00 last year at wal-mart of all places. I thought it would be good since the new Superman movie is coming out next week. The sexy Henry Cavill (Count of Monte Cristo, Tudors, Immortals, etc...) is the new "Man of Steel". <3 Haha This makes me think way back to the MSN Chat days and he was actually a contact on my MSN Messenger. He had added me but I could never get up the guts to actually message him. The only thing he had been in at the time was a couple british stuff and the Count of Monte Cristo. I think I made one of his first fan pages. lol 

A couple weeks ago BFTE came out with a new pro color, Shine Bright. It was the color of the week 3 weeks ago and i've yet to see it on the website in the pro colors section. Its a bright sunny yellow with silver shimmer. I thought it would be perfect to use for my superman look. The blue I used didnt show up well in the pictures. Also I should have added a blue to my waterline to complete the look. (I would have used either my Cargo Swimmable Blue or UD Radium) 

Items Used:
*Urban Decay Primer Potion Eden
*NYX Yellow Pencil Liner
*BFTE Shine Bright
*BFTE Electric
*BFTE Meteor Shower
*BFTE Addicted
*BFTE Crystal
*Eye Kandy Cosmetics Liquid Sugar
*Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers Confetti Glitter
*Elf Black Cream Liner

*Highlighted with Shiny White Shadow. (BFTE Crystal)
*Apply Black liner. (ELF Black Cream Liner)

*You could finish the look applying a Blue Liner to the waterline and using false lashes.</p>

<a target="_blank" href="http://www.bftecosmetics.com/Limited_c_60.html">

</a>You can find all the colors I used at the BFTE Cosmetics Website. Samples are $2.00 and Full Size are $6.00. Its the same price whether its a pro color or not. A good way to try out their shadows is by ordering the Color of the Week Special. (Full Size COTW and 3 Samples of your Choice)

Notes: I didnt realize Leesha (XSPARKAGE) was at the comicon all weekend. I think I saw her once because I remember thinking to myself, that girl looks like Leesha. I would have totally gotten a pic with her, if I had seen her and realized it was her. She's the reason i'm into all these bright colors and just makeup in general.

I actually did this look back in September but never posted for some reason. I actually had to swatch my elf palette to know what colors I even used. The yellow in my waterline looks awful, sorry about that. (I didnt have a good yellow in my collection at the time.)

ELF Eye Look - Ravenclaw (Harry Potter)

By cristalena56 · August 21, 2012

Round 2.. *teehee* I did a Ravenclaw look today using my 100 pc Elf Palette again. I'm not sure if i will be able to do the other 2 with this palette, but i will try. The colors of Ravenclaw is Blue and Black. I guess i could have done a bird look, since i did a snake for slytherin, but i didnt. I guess maybe i could try one out but as I've mentioned many times before my artistic skills are limited. :) I wore this look today for work but I changed it for the blog post because a blue i was using didnt work very well. I wish my make up looked the same in pictures as it does in person. Has anybody notice that their makeup can look good in person but cant capture it right on camera?? Maybe its just me.. I even tried taking pics outside but the pictures were even fuzzier outside. 

My skin looks blah.. sorry.. :/

Items Used:

*NYX Jumbo Pencil Milk

*ELF 100 Pc Palette

*TBN Blanc

*ELF Studio Cream Liner in Black

*Tarte Lights Camera Lashes

*First applied NYX HD Primer

*Then applied NYX Milk to lid and crease,smoothing it out with finger.

*Applied TBN Blanc to inner corner.

*Applied Lighter Blue to next 2/4 of the lid.

*Then the brighter blue shade to the outer part of the lid.


*Next I applied the sparkly black to crease.

*Then used the matte black and the sparkly black to darken the black.

*Used Dark Navy Blue to fill in brows.

*Lined eyes with Black eyeliner.


Let me know what you think! :)

ELF Eye Look - Slytherin (Harry Potter)

By cristalena56 · August 21, 2012

So.. I was trying to do a hunger games look over and over but was failing miserably. I then remembered seeing a pic recently from Unique Desire. She had done some Hogwarts Houses looks. I decided to do a Slytherin using my ELF 100 Pc palette. I like doing looks using products that more people are able to afford. This elf palette retails for $10. Not bad for 100 different colors. I just bought tonight the BH Cosmetics 120 Palette 2nd Edition for $18. Which is $8 more for 20 more shadows. The elf palette is good for those just starting out. I wanted the BH palette because im looking for more yellows and oranges. I really want the Sugar Pill Burning Heart Palette but its out of my budget at this time. Its $34.99 for 4 shadows.


So the colors of Slytherin House are Green and Silver. I had an idea of doing a snake like for eye liner, but when i did the snake with the make up look, i kept messing it up. Heres the snake without the eye look. its kind of a fail, but ill show it just because.

Didnt turn out the way i wanted but i might redoing it at another date. Something different then i usually do and never seen someone do this either. It looked better in my mind. haha

Decided to make a funny face haha

Items Used:

*Elf 100 Pc Palette(can find at ELF or target/kmart/wamart)

*TBN Shadow Blanc ($2)

*Elf Studio Cream Liner in Black ($3)

*Maybelline Mascara

*Started by using NYX HD Primer

*Applied TBN Blanc from Brow to Crease.

*Applied lighter green shade to lid and to inner corner of lower lashline.

*applied the darker green to crease and rounding out to lower lashline.

*applied the dark silver shade to upper crease and rounding out to bottom lashes.

*Lined eyes with Elf Studio Liner

*Then Mascara
