Rustic Autumn Rose Eye Look

By cristalena56 · July 26, 2012

I'm not for sure what to call this look. I was using my MAC Expensive Pink shadow, which is a rose gold color. I adore it!! We are starting to get fall stuff at work, even though the temperatures here are still in the 100s. So this will be a good look for fall. I also find it to be a romantic type look, so also maybe a look to wear for a date. I wish i could capture with my camera the way it looks in person, but im not close to be a picture taking expert. I ask my hubby, who does photography as a hobby, but what he says never makes sense to me. haha I should ask him to explain it to me in English I can understand! haha Anyways... I really love this MAC color. I got it a few months ago when I went to the mall for foundation samples. I bought this along with my Undercurrent liner that ive used in a few looks so far. I recently bought a body splash from Bath and Body Works that you could spritz on while wearing this look. The scent is Paris Amour. I love this scent!! The name says it all! I bought the mist, a shimmer lotion, and a hand lotion for my purse. I usually dont like a lot of the scents they have 75% off at their outlet stores, but this one is a total keeper!! 

Anyways.. lol Im starting to ramble. Onto the look...

*MAC Expensive Pink Shadow

By cristalena56 · April 19, 2012

So i was looking at pics from the coachella event and liked the look emma watson donned during the daytime. I decided to try to recreate it. This was my first time doing this. Hopefully its ok :)

Heres the look i created:

I should have put more bronzer/blush on forehead but oh well.

*bronzed my whole face with hard candy bronzer. When I apply bronzer to my whole face i dab my powder brush into the bronzer, tap away extra, dab it on the back of my hand as well, to give just enough to make my face glow.

*Then apply Poppy to my cheeks.

*First I applied Clinique Raspberry Glace to lips and then went over with Rimmel Siren for a glossier look and a more berry color.

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!! :)
