Friday the 13th-A Lighter Shade of Goth

Happy Friday the 13th everyone!  I hope you didn’t have any bad luck today. I actually had a good day with the exception of forgetting to run one errand. Anyways, who is ready for a simple, light, and fluffy goth look?

Here is the makeup look I created today!  Not too dark, but dark enough to celebrate Friday the 13th!


I used my e.l.f. Daily Moisturizer and primed my faced with my Benefit POREfessional primer. I’m still trying to find a good moisturizer.  I used to use Aveeno Daily Moisturizer and then switched; now I’m looking for a new one. My POREfessional primer is absolutely amazing, it’s like a vanishing cream for my pores and it’s my favorite. 


For foundation I went in with my L’Oréal 24 Hour Infallible Pro Matte foundation with my imitation beauty blender. This is also a favorite of mine right now and looking for another to switch back and forth too. 


You know what concealer I used, my ride or die tarte Shape Tape in Light Sand.  I also have the shade Fair that the lady at Ulta recommended, but I don’t think I’m that light!

I did bake today because I thought I might be running errands a while (aka waiting at the tattoo shop longer). I used my Bellapierre Banana Setting Powder which is super awesome, I really like the powder and it’s a good color for my skin tone. I got this in one of my ipsy glam bags!


While I baked, I started on my eyes.  I didn’t want too dark of an eye look, so I skipped the eyeshadow on my lids, and just did a wing with my Stila Slay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. I really love this eye liner, it makes creating a wing so easy because it is a felt tip and gives you a lot of control. What makes me a little sad is that this brand is not cruelty free. I know there are other brands I use that aren’t cruelty free, and I’m working on straying from those companies. I’m not sure if I’ll repurchase once this has dried up. 


For my water line, I used my Urban Decay 24 Hour Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero. I have quite a few different colors in this line, and although they’re very pigmented, I feel they are hard to work with and the color moves around. (You can tell I still use it though because it’s so small!)


For my under eye I used the black eyeshadow from my ipsy NYX trio, and I just smoked out my bottom lash line. 


To contour and bronze my face I used my Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Medium/Deep Bronzer. This was also an ipsy bag steal that I absolutely love. Not to mention, it smells like chocolate powder!


My blush was the Bellápierre in Desert Rose, which is my favorite right now!  I think it works well with my skin tone. 


Ok, about my eyebrows….I originally went the cheap route and bought the NYX brow pencil in Auburn. 

When I put it on yesterday, I looked like Carrot Top. If you don’t know who that is, google him. I was so disappointed by the color!  It was definitely not Auburn. I really wish I would’ve taken a picture for you all to laugh!

I ended up exchanging the NYX brow pencil for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in Auburn. This was a true Auburn and it’s a triangular brow pencil which makes it much easier to be more precise. 


Once I wiped away my bake, I added some amazing highlighter from my tarte Tarteist Pro Glow to Go palette in Gleam. Once again, another super favorite of mine!


I also used my Urban Decay foundation powder in Light/neautral to set the rest of my face. 


I went in with me Benefit They’re Real! mascara.  This mascara seriously lifts your lashes to the Gods, it’s amazing, and no falsies needed!


Finally for lips I used NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner in Alien (black), and then colored in a little on the outer part of my lips. I then used The Eday Group lipstick in Starlet Cocktail to give a red to black ombré effect!  This was my first time trying this lip look, and it didn’t come out too bad.

No Wrong Way-Golden Brown & Purple Eye Look

Welcome back everyone!  I hope you all had a great first week of the new year!  My week consisted of doctors appointments and trying to stay warm!  My life is a tad on the boring side, but that will be changing in a couple weeks.  

Today’s look….👇🏻

How about we jump into today’s makeup look?!  I wanted to create a brownish gold eye look, with some hints of purple. 


Here are all the products used to create today’s look. I’ve really been loving tarte’s tarteist pro palette, it’s absolutely stunning and you can create a plethora of looks with it!

My face is already prepped and primed, so let’s jump into the eyes!


I started with chic all over the lid, easy enough, right?  I took a different brush to go in with edgy, but I didn’t clean my brush well from my previous use and got part of punk in my crease, oops!  To defuse the situation I went back in with chic to lighten the eye up more. Thank goodness for layers!  

Once I switched brushes, I was able to go in with edgy in my crease, and I brought that all the way into the inner corner of my eyes. I did end up taking a tad bit of punk onto the outer v of my eye, but not too much. All over the lid is glam. I absolute love this light gold shimmer, it’s stunning and really brings the eye look together. 


Next I went all in with the Hikari eyeliner in Iris, which is a deep purple and beautiful. If you have brown eyes, you know any plum to purple eyeshadow or eyeliner will look fabulous on you!  Unfortunately, you can’t even tell it’s purple on my actually eyelid. You live and learn, right?  

I used N.Y.C.‘s Through the Storm eye pencil for my bottom water line. I was attempting to excentuate the purple Hikari eyeliner. 

For mascara, I used Smashbox‘s Full Exposure mascara. The wand on this mascara is old school;  it’s your normal brissel spooly that’s nice a fat…if that makes sense. I did not wear falsies with this look. 


Once my foundation was applied (L’Oréal Infallible Pro Matte), it was time for concealer!  If you don’t know what the tarte Shape Tape is yet, you are so late to the game!  It is one of the BEST concealers out there. It helps brighten your under eyes, helps decrease the look of bags I’m carrying under my eyes, and it’s just amazing!  It is a little pricey, but well worth it, and it will last you a while. 


Here are all the powder products that I used to beat my face!  I used my urban decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation (say that 5 times fast)  in light neutral to set my foundation and concealer. I did not bake. Baking is something I usually do when I need my makeup to last ALL day. 

To contour and warm up my face I used my Benefit Hoola bronzer. I really like the brush that comes with it; it makes contouring your nose so easy and helps with a sharp look. 


I used my tarte blush in Pampered.  At first I thought this color would be too pink for me, but as long as I go in with a light hand, it works perfectly!  


For highlight I used my e.l.f. Illuminating palette. It’s the top right corner shade which is a nice light sandy color. The pigment on this palette is like WHOA!  E.l.f. is not playing around, they’re really giving the higher end brands a run for their money!  


For brows I used my Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Auburn. I really need to get a better brush though.  Oddly enough I don’t have a proper eyebrow brush, I’ve just been using an angled eyeshadow brush.  I also need to add a little something so it’s not so dry. 


For lips I used my Ulta Matte Lip Cream in Tender.  It’s a really nice nude, light on the lips, and I love the matte finish. 

No filter. (Don’t mind my not so straight eyeliner…it was one of those days.)

Thank you for joining me today on this live and learn tutorial!  Not everything will work out in makeup, and if you can’t wash it off and start over, then work with what you have. The best thing about makeup is that there is no right or wrong way about it, you just do what makes you happy!

Have a great weekend friends! 🖤🖤
