Makeup looks that Last

It’s raining, it’s pouring, your eyeliner’s running. 

Wait, scratch that. Your eyeliner isn’t going anywhere! After all, what’s the point of mastering a reverse cat-eye if it’s just going to smear into a raccoon eye? 

Makeup artist Janessa Paré created these ultra-gorgeous beauty looks that’ll keep you looking beautiful and on trend … come rain or shine!

LastingMakeup-SpringMetallics

Spring Metallics

To take the metallic trend into the warmer months, look for bronzed hues reminiscent of fading sunlight. The key to this eye makeup is layering. Paré used a taupe metallic shade as a base, put a darker more golden shadow over it then dabbed a lighter metallic yellow shadow right in the center of the lids . “Use a black liner on the outer corners of your eyes in a ‘V’ shape. “This will make your eyes look lighter and brighter.” The shape created is reminiscent of an exaggerated cat-eye, giving a nod to the eyeshadow shape of the season.

Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo 24Hr Eyeshadow in Tough As Taupe, $6.56, available at Drugstore.comSonia Kashuk Pearlescence Longwear Creme, $8.99, available at TargetBuxom Stay-There Eyeshadow in Poodle, $18, available at Sephora.

Terra New York Lafayette 2 Cape, $345, available at Terra New York

LastingMakeup-TrueBlue

True Blue

The currently trending blue-eyeshadow look is a solid, graphic shape of pure, even color. To create it Paré used a cream eyeliner and painted the shape with an angled eyeshadow brush. Follow along the natural contour of your eye to create the petal shape of color. If you like this eyeshadow shape but are worried about such a dense pop of color, Paré says you can swap it out for a neutral hue. However, I recommend you go for the maximum impact!

Sephora Collection Waterproof Smoky Cream Liner in Electric Teal, $5, available at Sephora

Vera Jane Jacket, $220.80, available at Joie and Old Navy raincoat.

LastingMakeup-ReverseCatEye

Reverse Cat-Eye 

Lower-lid makeup is particularly vulnerable to smudging, but this reverse cat-eye isn’t going anywhere. To create a smoldering, edgy look, Paré used an eggplant-colored pencil, drawing elongated shape along the lower lashes, then used black pencil on the lower waterline to create depth. She finished the look by piling a ton of mascara on the top lashes. “Since there’s no liner on top, the mascara balances the look out,” she says. “For a more playful feel, you can add some colorful eyeshadow to the upper lid.”

Tarte Smolder Eyes Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner in Fig, $22; Make Up For Ever Aqua Black Waterproof Cream Eye Shadow, $23, available at Sephora; bareMinerals Flawless  Waterproof Mascara in Black $18, available at Ulta.

ASOS Clear Rain Trench $56.44, available at ASOS.

LastingMakeup-LipsOnFire

Lips on Fire

The orange lipstick trend is going strong. For a bold look that’s not too severe, go for soft edges. “After you apply the lipstick, wipe the edge of you lips with a tissue to blur it out,” she says. Dab on cheek stain to continue the soft-focus vibe – you can even mix a little with concealer to sheer it out. To complement the orange lip, Paré smudged a white eyeliner on the whole lid, just past the crease, and drew a line on the lower lid as well. She topped off the eye with an espresso mascara, noting, “This will tie the lip in with the eye. The white is a cool tone, but the lipstick is warm, so the warm-toned mascara connects the whole look.”

Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge in 17 Bright Orange, $24, available at Sephora; Vincent Longo Lip and Cheek Stain in Liquid Kiss, $22.50, available at DermStoreNyx Cosmetics Waterproof Eye Liner in White MPE01, $4.49, available at CVSL’Oréal Paris Voluminous Waterproof Mascara in Black Brown, $7.29.

Sunkissed VoxBox

I’ve been Sunkissed by Influenster!

sunkissed-newsI received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Products: Olay BB CreamSinful Shine nail polish, Goody Ouchless, and Dr Scholls for Her

Sinful Shine – I received new Sinful Shine with gel-tech in Amazonian. I love the high shine finish! It dries to a gleaming, glossy sheen, and I also dig the subtle touch of shimmer in this lush green nail polish.

Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics: LOVE these hair ties! These ribbon elastics are tied in a cute bow and are super easy to style. I like these because they are easier on my hair than regular elastics so they don’t cause breakage through all my summer up-dos.

goody ribbon

Dr Scholls for Her High Heels – These work wonders. They definitely keep my feet in strutting shape even in the highest Statement Heels!

Olay BB Cream – I love BB creams and this one just might be my new Summer beauty staple. I received this makeup in Light-Medium and looks very light but when applied blends perfectly to fit your skin tone.

Olay-Fresheffects-BB

This tinted skin perfecter feels light and is also moisturizing so my skin stays fresh feeling even on the hottest Summer days. Get a fresh and flawless complexion from skin-perfecting benefits including 24-hour hydration with a splash of sheer color coverage.

Confessions of a Shopaholic

Thank you to the fabulous Marisa of Wear Your Vitamins for tagging me in Confessions of a Shopaholic, How Fun!  Read on for a glimpse inside the life of this Shopaholic! At the end of this post, I’ll be tagging four lucky bloggers whose style I love!

The Questions:

Do you consider yourself a shopoholic? Yes!!! I love clothes so much I started making my own! Come checkout Blessing Clothing

How would you classify your style? Eclectic! From girly to punk, trendy to classic…. I love it All!

skull

What store can you not leave without buying something from? Wet Seal! I love pretty much everything in this store and the prices are so great I can snap up tons of deals.

WetSeal

Where do you find your best deals? Kohls and Wet Seal for fashion. DSW for shoes.

What designer are you willing to splurge on?  I usually go for bags and shoes when splurging on designers.  I consider them investment pieces. 😉  A couple of my faves are Gucci, and MichaelKors. I am currently lusting over this infinity Flora Gucci wristlet!

Do you have a go-to shopping outfit? I do not, but some cute and comfy shoes that easily slide on  and off are always a good idea for trying on clothes more easily. These trendy Steve Madden Olympa wedge sneakers are one of my faves right now. $100

OLYMPA-SteveMadden

What is your guilty pleasure? Pampering myself! I enjoy going to the spa and can’t get enough beauty products! Creams, makeup, toners, hair shines, nail polishes, masks, and any other beautifying concoctions are all my must-haves. These little indulgences make me feel luxurious…. this is just one shelf from my fabulous product collection!

 

What is the one piece of clothing you can’t live without? Jeans! Lots and Lots of Jeans! Colored, faded, embellished, ripped, skinny, flared! Many styles adorn my closet and they are definitely a must have in anybody’s wardrobe!

Couture Beauty

couture beauty

I’ve been looking for an excuse to rock bedazzled lips since age five–and never would have guessed that one would stem from haute couture. The fashion houses showed their collections and their frothy confections have been capped off with wonderfully whimsical beauty looks, two of which I am dying to try in real life.  At Dior, Pat McGrath lined the models’ lips with hot pink and red pencils, layering Dior’s Addict Lip Gloss ($28) in Diablotine and Princess on top to serve as glue for individually placed Swarovski crystals. At Chanel, Global Creative Director Peter Phillips designed the ultimate statement eye, layering the same Maison Lemarie black tulle used in the show’s headpieces over Chanel’s Stylo Eyeshadow (out this May) in Black Stream and Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($30) in Noir Intense. A more realistic version of the former–perhaps hot pink liner filled in with cherry red–would be perfect for a girls’ night. But the same could be said of the latter, so which would you rather wear?
