MOTD – Summer Mirage

It’s been SUCH a busy last few days with the close of the month and the July promotion! So busy, that I feel like it’s been forever since I posted a MOTD look! I actually shot this look yesterday, but couldn’t get it up until tonight (which is why I look a bit different from today’s live!)

This look is a combination of many of the new July products! I’m wearing Rainbow Collection on the eyes, and a mix of the Oasis and Hawaiian Collections on the lips (it should be no surprise that these colors work so well together based on their names!)

On the eyes, I used Sandstone Pearl Shimmer as my main lid color, with Red ShadowSense on my outer corner as a punch of color. I then used Indigo ShadowSense on my crease, transitioning to Pink Posey in my contour.

On my lips, I made a simply gorgeous neutral mix using equal portions of Mirage and Summer Fun LipSense. I think it’s so fun that two so dramatically different colors come together to create such a beautiful and wearable nude. I then topped the look with Desert Topaz Gloss, which slightly muted the shade a touch more, and added a touch of multidimensional glitter. Such a beautiful combination.

Here’s everything I used for this look!

💋 Silk Pore & Wrinkle Minimizer
💋 Medium CCTM, Pearlizer & Medium Concealer, mixed, as foundation
💋 Deep CCTM as contour
💋 Bronze & Terra Cotta BlushSense
💋 White/Medium Concealers on Blemishes
💋 White/Medium Concealers under eyes
💋 Candlelight as eyeshadow base & under eyes
💋 Sandstone Pearl Shimmer, Red, Indigo & Pink Posey ShadowSense on eyelids
💋 Indigo ShadowSense on waterline
💋 Starry Sky EyeSense as eyeliner
💋 Rustic Brown ShadowSense on brows
💋 Black LashSense VolumeIntense Mascara (Regular & Waterproof formulas layered)
💋 Mirage & Summer Fun LipSense, mixed 1:1
💋 Desert Topaz Gloss Gloss
💋 Ardell Glamour Lashes

Welcome… The Oasis Collection (Part 2)

It’s time to appreciate these gorgeous Oasis colors up close and on the lips – and if its possible, I love them even MORE than I did yesterday!

Sunstone is a medium tone pink with golden shimmer and glitter, and it is absolutely STUNNING! Just L👀K at that duochrome shimmer! 🤩 It’s absolutely intoxicating. Golden Orchid was one of my favorite pink releases this year, and Sunstone is its deeper sister, and quite probably my new favorite pink!

Sunstone’s application is buttery and smooth, and it will be SO much fun to layer with!

I just can’t get enough of this gorgeous shade! 😍🤤

Desert Topaz Gloss is everything I’ve been dreaming of in a gloss, and SO much more. The blue and violet iridescence is legit MAGICAL, and I love how smooth it feels on my lips! 🙌

This gloss is FACTORY SOLD OUT COMPANY WIDE – and I absolutely can see why! I have a limited amount left for claiming – once they’re gone, they will be gone for good! 🙅‍♀️ And that will be a sad day, because this gloss is remarkable. I’m definitely keeping an extra for myself! 😎

Okay, so Mirage took me by surprise! I REALLY love this color!

It’s a coppery bronze, with red and golden glitter that makes it SO flattering and unique. The red glitter shifts the look to a rose gold brown that’s simply STUNNING in person. It’s SO beautiful in the sunshine, too. There is SUCH sparkle and depth!! ✨ This color really IS a mirage! 😍

I really can’t wait to wear the heck out of this one!

Here’s the details on today’s gorgeous eye look, too!

WELCOME… The Oasis LipSense Collection! 🌴

Woahhhhh, you guys!! This collection is even PRETTIER in person than I had imagined!! I’m blown away with how perfect these colors are. 😍

Each one is unique and STUNNING, filled with duochrome shimmers and glitters. They are all buttery smooth in application and so SPECIAL! These are gorgeous for the hot days of Summer, and will be just wonderful transitioning into Fall. This Collection is just SO perfect – for everyone!!

I love that this is a more neutral collection on the heels of all the bold shades we’ve had this summer, too! These are unique without being too loud.

🌞 SUNSTONE – This has been my most popular preorder color, and I can see why! It’s a perfect medium toned pink with golden shimmer and glitter. It reminds me of a deeper Golden Orchid, and it might be my new favorite pink of ALL time.

🌴MIRAGE – This metallic bronze/copper shade is everything. The red and gold glitter truly stand out and make this fiery shade stand out in a crowd. I LOVE the depth – I am really pleasantly surprised by this color. I’m obsessed!

🐪 DESERT TOPAZ – All the hype is LEGIT, you guys. This gloss is INSANELY beautiful. I’m obsessed with all the violet and blue iridescence – it’s very subtle but absolutely stunning.

Don’t mind me. I’m just over here drooling 🤤Seriously – how amazing is the Oasis Collection in motion?! 🤩🤩🤩#lipsense #oasiscollection #lipsenseoasiscollection #sunstonelipsense #miragelipsense #deserttopazgloss #senegence #summermakeup #fallmakeup #lipstick #lipgloss #lipcolor #alldaylipcolor #longlastinglipcolor #swakbeauty

Winged Eyeliner 101

I get asked ALL THE TIME about my “signature” winged eyeliner technique – so I thought this fun little tutorial might be helpful! 👁

This is my GO-TO method of applying eyeliner on the daily! Here’s some additional tips, too!

🔮 Use short strokes rather than long sweeping lines for a more precise application 🙌
🔮 Liquid Liner will produce the most crisp and sharp lines, but an eyeliner pencil/crayon may be easier to start with 💡
🔮 Don’t be afraid to mess up – that’s what Q-tips and makeup remover are for!
🔮 Use Scotch tape on your wing to create a super crisp line! Connect tape from your outer corner to the tail end of your brow and follow this eyeliner guide. Remove the tape when finished and you’ll have a PERFECTLY sharp wing! 🗡
🔮 Be patient with yourself! Eyeliner is a skill learned only with practice!

Happy winging, ladies!

MOTD – BLUE DUSK

So excited to be serving ALL the mermaid, ocean and aquamarine vibes with the second half of the Rainbow ShadowSense Collection!! 😍

I can’t get over how rich these beautiful colors are, and how blendable they are when combining and layering them together!! I’m wearing Indigo, Violet, Purple and Blue on my main lid, using Snow ShadowSense to cut the crease. In my contour, I layered Blue and then Green ShadowSense for a subtle yet beautiful contrast. Sandstone Pearl Shimmer was used just below the brow bone as a highlight, and I’m loving how it pops to add just a touch of shimmer to an otherwise matte look.

Oh, and on the lips? That GORGEOUS color? 😍That’s Dusk Shimmer ShadowSense. Limited Edition Dusk Shimmer has been SO popular this summer, its easy to see why it’s been sold out of my inventory for little while now. BUT I HAVE GOOD NEWS! More Dusk Shimmer is ON THE WAY into my stock RIGHT NOW. Claim them quickly – because once they’re gone, they’ll be gone for GOOD.

Here’s everything I used for this look!

💋 Silk Pore & Wrinkle Minimizer
💋 Medium CCTM, Tan MakeSense, Pearlizer & Medium Concealer, mixed, as foundation
💋 Deep CCTM as contour
💋 Bronze & Terra Cotta BlushSense
💋 White/Medium Concealers on Blemishes
💋 White/Medium Concealers under eyes
💋 Candlelight as eyeshadow base & under eyes
💋 Indigo, Violet, Blue, Green, Snow & Sandstone Pearl ShadowSense on eyes
💋 Blue ShadowSense on waterline
💋 Starry Sky EyeSense as eyeliner
💋 Rustic Brown ShadowSense on brows
💋 Black LashSense VolumeIntense Mascara (Regular & Waterproof formulas layered)
💋 Dusk Shimmer ShadowSense on lips
💋 Glossy Gloss
💋 Ardell Glamour Lashes

MOTD – Hurricane Soda

Let the Rainbow Collection 🌈 looks COMMENCE! It feels like an eternity that I’ve been waiting to play with these amazing colors in an actual MOTD look, and today was the (first) day I actually got to do just that. 🙌

I’m LIVING for the depth in these shadows. They are completely blendable, yet with only a few layers can be very opaque and bold on the eye. I prefer to dab these colors in place with a brush when looking for heavy color saturation, a similar application to the glitter shadows. This allows the color to build, rather than “swiping” it away. If you’d prefer a more subtle look, then yes – blend these colors down, and use fewer layers. 💃

This eye combo is just making me SO happy. And this is only HALF of the Rainbow Collection in action. I already have a look for the second half planned, too! 😘

Can we just also talk about this lip combo for a second? Orange Soda and Hurricane Red do some AMAZING things together. The orange addition from the Carnival Collection gives Hurricane Red a perfect SURGE of bold fun to perfectly compliment this look. This lip would also be perfect for ANY hot summer occasion – its fun and bold without being over the top. It’s stunning! 😍

Here’s everything I used for this look!

💋 Silk Pore & Wrinkle Minimizer
💋 Medium CCTM, Tan MakeSense, Pearlizer & Medium Concealer, mixed, as foundation
💋 Deep CCTM as contour
💋 Bronze & Terra Cotta BlushSense
💋 White/Medium Concealers on Blemishes
💋 White/Medium Concealers under eyes
💋 Candlelight as eyeshadow base & under eyes
💋 Red, Orange, Yellow & Indigo ShadowSense on eyes/waterline
💋 Starry Sky EyeSense as eyeliner
💋 Rustic Brown ShadowSense on brows
💋 Black LashSense VolumeIntense Mascara (Regular & Waterproof formulas layered)
💋 Orange Soda & Hurricane Red LipSense, Mixed 1:1
💋 Glossy Gloss
💋 Ardell Glamour Lashes

WELCOME… THE RAINBOW COLLECTION!

You guys. This is literally my DREAM ShadowSense collection!

Working in this amazing and bold spectrum over the last two days has been SO uplifting – these colors just OOZE happiness!! Each one is highly pigmented, opaque and has a matte finish – NO shimmer or glitter, here. Just perfectly blendable, rich colors.

My FAVORITE part of this is that by having all of the primary colors in your collection (with Snow and Onyx for lightening or darkening) – it’s possible to mix to create ANY color in the ENTIRE spectrum. Yes – ANY COLOR you can think of!! Just think of the possibilities! Ahhh, this collection is definitely taking me back to all of my art theory classes and I’m LIVING FOR IT. ❤️💛💚💙💜

In addition to bold gorgeousness, these colors can also be blended out to be SUPER subtle!! I’ll be posting eye pics later today (still editing, ya’ll…) that show how wearable ALL of the Rainbow Collection can be! 🙌

I seriously cannot get over how perfect ALL of these formulas are. They are buttery, smooth, and so rich in color. 

On each eye look, I tried to show not only the color depth, but also its blend-ability. For each color, I dabbed it in place on my main lid, and then swept and brushed it up towards my brow to show a more subtle and wearable intensity. ALL of these colors can be worn every day – you just have to blend them down. 🙌

Or, be BOLD and live your life in FULL COLOR 🌈 because these colors were also born to SHINE! 💃✨

While I had SO much fun cataloging these colors, I am even more excited to move onto more creative looks tomorrow! AHHH I CANNOT WAIT TO GET TO PLAYING, YOU GUYS!

I still have a handful of Rainbow Collections and individuals available for claiming! The collections come with the HIGHLY COVETED glittering rainbow makeup bag! 🌈 Grab them this weekend with the SWEET SUMMER SALE going on through Sunday night! 🔥

MOTD – Bubble Cone

I’m not quite done with mixing the Carnival Collection just yet, you guys! This combo is one I’ve been wanting to try for a few days now, and wow – it does not disappoint!

I love this gorgeous lilac that Bubblegum Glitter and Snow Cone create! The gorgeous turquoise glitter in Snow Cone really stands up spectacularly and can really be appreciated with this mix – I really love it!

On my eyes, I wasn’t quite sure the look I was going for when I began! I started with a base of Silver Shimmer ShadowSense, and then built up layers using Deep Plum, Turquoise, Oasis Glitter, Amethyst and Silver Violet on the lid. I used a dot of Snow on my inner corner, and it really made this look pop! Looking back, I totally could have used a touch of highlight under my brow, but hey – I still love this eye.

Here’s everything I used for this look!

💋 Silk Pore & Wrinkle Minimizer
💋 Medium CCTM & Tan MakeSense, mixed
💋 Deep CCTM as contour
💋 Bronze BlushSense
💋 White/Medium Concealers on Blemishes
💋 White/Medium Concealers under eyes
💋 Candlelight as eyeshadow base & under eyes
💋 Deep Plum, Oasis Glitter, Turquoise, Amethyst, Silver Violet & Silver Shimmer ShadowSense on Main Lid
💋 Snow ShadowSense on inner corner
💋 Rustic Brown ShadowSense on brows
💋 Black LashSense VolumeIntense Mascara
💋 Bubblegum Glitter & Snow Cone LipSense, Mixed 1:1
💋 Glossy Gloss
💋 Ardell Demi Wispies Lashes

Eyeshadow Placement 101

If there’s one lesson I’d like to implement into the minds of everyone out there – it’s that makeup does NOT need to be scary. You just need the right tools! 🎉

With my daily MOTD looks, I always call out the placement of all the shadows I use, but sometimes there is some confusion about where and what those locations are. So, I created this super helpful graphic to better clarify – for us all! 🙌

NOTE: Some of my previous MOTD look descriptions may not match this chart 100%! I’ve used some variance in the past of what each area is specifically called – yes, I’m still learning, too! But I will be referring to this for ALL future looks – so definitely SAVE THIS for future reference! 📌

These are UNIVERSAL terms so it should help you better understand shadow tutorials from EVERYWHERE – not just me! 😘

And while RuLeS aRe MaDe To bE bRoKeN… here are some extra shadow tips and tricks that I like to stick with!

👁 I LOVE using a Shimmer or Glitter ShadowSense on my highlight and inner corner! It can really liven up a look and add a small touch of glam.
👁 I prefer sticking to Matte ShadowSense colors in my crease – but I don’t always follow this rule, either!
👁 I often times refer to the lid in THREE parts – Inner, Main and Outer, for added dimension and variety in a look
👁 Do NOT be afraid to play with your makeup! Have FUN and keep makeup wipes and Q-tips handy for mistakes. (We ALL make them, at EVERY level!)
👁 Experiment with a variety of brushes as well as your finger tips for application! Find what works best for YOU – this may evolve over time! Keep playing and trying new things!

I hope you all find this helpful! Comment below if you’ve been liking my instructional graphics, and which ones you want to see NEXT! ⬇️⬇️⬇️

MOTD – MERMAID TAIL

Two MOTD looks in a row?! It’s already a great week – and it’s only Wednesday 😘

This is basically a Part 2 to yesterday’s Orange Bubblegum Soda look – using very much the same idea and techniques, but with the other two colors in the new Carnival Collection, Snow Cone and Candy Apple Green.

Okay – I knew these colors would make magic together – but I had no idea how PERFECT it would be. I mixed 2 parts Snow Cone to 1 part Candy Apple Green (an even mix would have leaned much more Candy Apple) to create this insanely beautiful teal blue/green – which, in my humble opinion – is the BEST mermaid lip I’ve seen yet. Calling ALL Ariels of the world – this mix is for YOU!

I’m absolutely loving this eye palette as well. In contrast to yesterday (where I applied the LipSense directly to the lid above my EyeSense liner), I used Snow ShadowSense as a base – and I really love how it made Snow Cone and Candy Apple Green POP as my upper liner. I just NEVER get tired of this technique. Double liner for life!!

Here’s everything I used for this look!

💋 Silk Pore & Wrinkle Minimizer
💋 Medium CCTM, Tan MakeSense, Pearlizer & Medium Concealer, mixed, as foundation
💋 Deep CCTM as contour
💋 Bronze & Terra Cotta BlushSense
💋 White/Medium Concealers on Blemishes
💋 White/Medium Concealers under eyes
💋 Candlelight as eyeshadow base & under eyes
💋 Snow Cone & Candy Apple Green LipSense as upper eyeliner, with Snow ShadowSense as upper liner base
💋 Starry Sky EyeSense as lower eyeliner
💋 Seafoam Shimmer & Palm Glitter ShadowSense on waterline
💋 Rustic Brown ShadowSense on brows
💋 Black LashSense VolumeIntense Mascara (Regular & Waterproof formulas layered)
💋 Snow Cone & Candy Apple Green LipSense, mixed 2:1
💋 Glossy Gloss
💋 Ardell Demi Wispies Lashes

MOTD – Orange Bubblegum Soda

FINALLY! I’ve been dying to mix Bubblegum Glitter with Orange Soda since they arrived into stock last week! The 4th of July festivities were a huge distraction (in a GOOD way) but it meant putting off this combo – until now! WOW – it did NOT disappoint!

This combo absolutely reminds me of a matte version of Coral-Lina!

I’m also obsessed with this matchy-matchy eye combo that I created to go with this lip mix! I first applied my standard wing with Starry Sky EyeSense, and then I used a precise brush to apply (carefully) Bubblegum Glitter and Orange Soda to my upper liner line. I just LOVE a good double wing, and this look is so perfect for summer!

PS – On a side note, I’m fighting a head cold today – hence my tired eyes! I’m fighting through it, but I think I basically overdid it this weekend and now I have a cold. It’s not the end of the world – just a cold. But it’s annoying. I persisted and did this look anyway – because it needed to be out of my head!

Here’s everything I used for this look!

💋 Silk Pore & Wrinkle Minimizer
💋 Medium CCTM, Tan MakeSense, Pearlizer & Medium Concealer, mixed, as foundation
💋 Deep CCTM as contour
💋 Bronze & Terra Cotta BlushSense
💋 White/Medium Concealers on Blemishes
💋 White/Medium Concealers under eyes
💋 Candlelight as eyeshadow base & under eyes
💋 Orange Soda & Bubblegum Glitter LipSense as upper eyeliner
💋 Starry Sky EyeSense as eyeliner
💋 Lava Shimmer ShadowSense on waterline
