MOTD – French Roast

Okay, the Café Collection just keeps bringing the AMAZING. 🤩🙌

I’ve been dying to try French Roast ShadowSense on the lips since first trying it on my eyes the other day. It’s just SO gorgeous, and I absolutely LOVE how it translated to the lips. 😍😍😍

A couple of notes on wearing ShadowSense on the lips (since I know I will be asked!):

1) AMPLE dry time is required for ShadowSense on the lips. 5-10 minutes MINIMUM before glossing to ensure long lasting wear.

2) IF you have Icicle – this will help! Using it as Layer 1 & 3 and sandwiching your ShadowSense in between will help ensure the lasting power of shadows on the lips. (Note: Icicle is a discontinued “clear” LipSense color, and sadly – I do not have any in stock.) I did NOT use Icicle for this look – only ShadowSense and Matte Gloss (I first sealed with Glossy and let it soak in first!)

3) Feel free to experiment with different ShadowSense colors on your lips! Just be advised NOT to use Denim on the lips – it contains an ingredient that is not meant to be ingested via the mouth.

On my eyes, I’m wearing the entire Café ShadowSense Collection – Americano, Cinnamon Shimmer and French Roast, with the addition of Sandstone Pearl Shimmer as a highlight. I’m just LOVING this entire collection, ladies. This is literally the PERFECT Fall palette and I’m just drooling. I went a bit heavy handed with this look because I really wanted to show off these colors, but a lighter touch would make such a gorgeous and subtle option.

Here’s everything I used for this look!

💋 Silk Pore & Wrinkle Minimizer
💋 Medium CCTM & Medium Concealer, mixed
💋 Bronze & Terra Cotta BlushSense
💋 White/Medium Concealers on Blemishes
💋 White/Medium Concealers under eyes
💋 Candlelight as eyeshadow base & under eyes
💋 Americano, French Roast, Cinnamon Shimmer & Sandstone Pearl Shimmer ShadowSense on eyes
💋 French Roast ShadowSense on waterline
💋 Starry Sky EyeSense as eyeliner
💋 Rustic Brown ShadowSense on brows
💋 Black LashSense VolumeIntense Mascara (Regular & Waterproof formulas layered)
💋 French Roast ShadowSense on lips
💋 Matte Gloss
💋 Kiss Couture Triple Push Up Lashes in Corset

Welcome… The Café Collection!

The gorgeous colors of the ShadowSense Café Collection are IN THE HOUSE! I am just SO in love with these rich coffee-inspired tones. Just look at how gorgeous these tubes are – and those swatches!!

☕️ AMERICANO – This medium brown with a matte finish is going to be a new STAPLE in my routine. I envision using this color from everything from contour to brows, not to mention the perfect neutral base for any eye look.

☕️ CINNAMON SHIMMER – This coppery bronze shade is such a sweet surprise!! It’s so dimensional and will be the perfect pop of bling in all of my favorite fall looks!

☕️ FRENCH ROAST – This chocolate burgundy is sensual and delicious! It can be built up to be bold or blended out for a subtle look. It’s matte finish is perfect for this season and so on-trend!

Americano, Cinnamon Shimmer and French Roast are ALL smooth in application and creamy in consistency. They glide on and can be build up for a deep color, or blended out to be more subtle. 🙌

I’m literally drooling over this amazing palette of colors. And YES – there is SO much variety!

Left picture is outdoor light (in the rain I might add 😆), Right is indoor window light!

I only have THREE Café Collections left for claiming! 😱 If you want one, let me know ASAP – this collection WILL sell out. It’s just too perfect not to!! 😍

MOTD – Sun Soda

The sun is shining and there’s a crispness to the air – we are officially transitioning into the fall season!! This is the BEST time of year for fashionistas – hey, the September Vogue issue is basically ten inches thick for a reason – and I love all the colors that this season brings.

I love that the colors that were released this summer will also work so beautifully moving into the cooler temperatures. I mixed Orange Soda from the Carnival LipSense Collection with Sunstone from the Oasis LipSense Collection – and WOW – do they create some magic, or what?!

I love this use of the Rainbow ShadowSense collection on the eyes, too. Indigo is such a gorgeous color, and it works so beautifully when used next to softer shades like Pink Opal Shimmer, Shell Glitter and Pink Posey. I just LOVE this eye look!

MOTD – Party Pink

Oh, Party Pink! An old friend I haven’t hung out with in WAY TOO LONG! 😱

This bold “Barbie pink” is truly a SHOWSTOPPER and is SO much fun to wear! I’m so thrilled it’s finally heading back into my inventory, after being unavailable for (literally) years!

When wearing a super bold shade like this on the lips, I definitely prefer to keep things minimal on the eyes for a balanced look – even though my purple hair keeps that kinda hard most days, anyways! hahaha!

Garnet and Dusk Shimmer created a beautiful simple smokey eye duo that perfectly complement this fabulous lip look. I really feel like Barbie! 😍

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

💋 Black LashSense VolumeIntense Mascara (Regular & Waterproof formulas layered)
💋 Party Pink LipSense
💋 Glossy Gloss
💋 Ardell Glamour Lashes

MOTD – Mirage Berry

Okay, it’s official – I can’t stop mixing with Mirage. WOW, this color, you guys. The sparkle is just insane and translates beautifully into ANY mix. I’ve been dying to mix it with Blackberry for about a week now, and I finally gave into the urge today. THIS MIX, YA’LL. I’m ob-sessed! This is SUCH a gorgeous and vampy mix with SO much sparkle. To vary the finish up a bit, I wore it with Matte Gloss – but I can see SO many amazing Gloss additions to this look!

On the eyes, I wanted to share a more subtle look featuring a bold color from the Rainbow SS Collection. I’ve been enjoying the colors in all their bold glory, but I also wanted to show how truly versatile they are for every day! In this neutral smoky look, I used Rose Gold Glitter ShadowSense on my main lid, Rustic Brown on my outer corner, and Red ShadowSense in my crease. I absolutely LOVE this shadow trio!!

As a side note, on my stories today I asked for opinions once again on my hair! I was debating whether or not to replenish the purple in my hair – I typically do with every shower, using a color depositing hair mask my stylist mixed for me. It REALLY helps keep the color completely fresh, but I have been feeling like letting it fade – just a bit – to a more subtle, perhaps pastel, purple color. It was a close call with the votes on my stories – but they leaned towards letting it go more pastel. So, when I washed today – I did not replenish my purple! It’s hard to tell – the color is still very bright – but it has toned down just a touch, and I really love it. (I half expected it ALL to come out, so I’m happy!) I probably won’t let it fade TOO far – but it’s fun to play with the vibrancy for sure!

Here’s everything I used for this look!

MOTD – RAINBOW TREAT

I guess I’m not quite through with those rainbow vibes just yet!! I’ve been wanting to try a version of this look since the Rainbow 🌈collection came out, but I didn’t want to overload too many similar looks at one time.

This is even more gorgeous than I had hoped for! I used a lot of shadows (and even a blush!) on this look – but in my opinion it’s completely worth the effort!

Can we just talk about this lip mix for a second, too?! I mean… I’m just obsessed with how gorgeous Summer Treat and Sunstone look together – and then Papaya Gloss just adds a whole other level of BAM! – and I’m feeling it ALL.

Here’s everything I used for this look!

💋 Silk Pore & Wrinkle Minimizer
💋 Medium CCTM, Pearlizer & Medium Concealer, mixed, as foundation

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

💋 Mirage & Summer Fun LipSense, mixed 1:1
💋 Desert Topaz Gloss Gloss

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

💋 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

💋 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! 🔥

Comment below, message me, or text the word ORDER to 937-249-0863 to taste the Rainbow today! 😘

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

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! ⬇️⬇️⬇️
