Lzzy Hale Makeup for Cut Out & Keep's MakeOver Monday

Here's my Lzzy Hale from Halestorm Makeup for Cut Out & Keep's MakeOver Monday feature. I took inspiration from her usual black smoky eye and red lips as seen on stage, in promo shots and for fancy public appearances. 

You can check out my 2nd Lzzy Hale Makeup tutorial here where I amped up her usual look and went nuts with it, as well as the feature for Cut Out & Keep's MakeOver Monday on their site here.

Enjoy!

How to get the perfect Black Glossy Lip: Review & Swatches PART 2

Here are some other ways to get black glossy lips if you don't have any black lipgloss around. With Part 2 of the video I'll show you a review with hand and lip swatches plus my thoughts and some extra tips.

Check out Part 1 of the perfect Black glossy lip video which will show you three black glosses complete with hand and lip swatches!

Enjoy!




Products Featured in the video

Black Products NYX Slim Lip Liner in Black Berry (can be found at drug store or NYX Cosmetics Site)
Urban Decay 24/7 Eye pencil in Perversion (Urban decay site or Sephora/Ulta shops)

Lime Crime Velvetine in Black Velvet from Lime Crime site
Portland Black Lipstick Company Black Lipstick from their site

Clear Lipgloss
Obsessive Compulsive Lip Tar in Clear from OCC site
Rimmel Vinyl gloss in Crystal Clear (can be found at drug store)


Other Black lipsticks

Melt lipstick in Bane from Melt Cosmetics (which is the next black lipstick on my list!)
OCC Lip tar in Tarred from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics here.

Some other tips...
With a translucent black lip gloss or one that isn’t opaque enough for what you want, you can apply it over a coloured lipstick to darken the colour. For example you could add a light black lipgloss over a lipstick for a vamped up lip.

It also works the other way, you can dab on the lipgloss lightly and make a highly pigmented lipgloss give softer effect. Check out this lip tutorial where I lightly used the Illamasqua Intense gloss for a darkened berry kinda lip here.

Also you can mix a loose black eyeshadow with the non-pigmented black gloss and make it more opaque and as dark as you like. And you can even add some sparkle to it. If you mix Stella loose chromalust pigment from Sugarpill Cosmetics you could add some darkness and also some light glitter throughout your custom lipgloss.

Darth Maul Lip Art: Sith vs Jedi Collaboration with Nijigasumi16

I'm here to bring you the Sith vs Jedi collaboration. I was invited to clash light Sabres with Nijigasumi16 on YouTube who is of the serene and harmonious Jedi order and I represent the passionate, powerful and wrathful Sith.

I took inspiration from the intense rage of Darth Maul and his red skin and tribal-esque tattoos of his face, plus gold spikes to display his horns.

After watching the 2 tutorials you shall see which side of the force prevails! Bwahahaha!

Enjoy!

Sugarpill Brush Set: Review & Hizzaul

I am excited to show you this brush purchased from Sugarpill Cosmetics. I couldn't resist the gorgeousness of the pink handles and pink and white fibres plus I am an absolute Sugarpill junkie, so I am compelled to own everything in there catalogue (and I almost actually do).


Enjoy!

Video Review



If you want to become addicted to Sugarpill like I am check out their site here.

I ordered the whole brush set because I wanted most of the brushes and it was more economical to get the whole thing, and then I wouldn't feel like my collection was incomplete. The set cost $68 for the 4 brushes which is a $78 value and the brushes range from $16 to $20 each if you get them individually. The 4 brushes you get in this set are the Large Eyeshadow Brush, Lip Brush, Tapered Blending & Crease Brush & Precision Eyeliner Brush. They are all vegan and cruelty free, made out of synthetic fibres in a cute pink and white gradient.
