EYES

  • primed my eyelids using the Wet N Wild Photo Focus eye primer
  • I used some Scotch tape to create a sharp winged effect with my eyeshadow.
  • From the Tarte Tarteist Pro eyeshadow palette, I used the shades  Whimsy and Bold as my transition shades. To blend these out, I used the Ulta eyeshadow in shade Camel.
  • On the putter corners of my eyes, I used the Ulta eyeshadow in shade Brownie and Smoked from the Tarteist Pro palette. I also used these shades on my bottom lashline.
  • On the center and inner portion of my lid, I applied a bronze shade from my Morphe 35O palette, but any bronze shade you have will work beautifully for this look!
  • I skipped out on eyeliner today and applied a pair of bold lashes instead. I used the Kiss Blooming lashes (sorry can’t remember the style!)
  • Lined my waterline with the L’Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner

FACE

  • primed my face using the Trader Joe’s Nourish Antioxidant Serum  and Benefit’s Porefessional primer
  • For foundation, I used a new product from Wet N Wild- their new Photo Focus foundation in shade Golden Beige (this stuff is amazing, post coming soon)
  • For concealer, I used the Smashbox Studio Skin concealer in light/warm
  • I set my concealer with the RCMA No Color powder and the rest of my face with the Wet N Wild Photo Focus pressed powder in Tan Beige

BROWS & LIPS

  • Filled in my brows using Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown
  • And for lips, the star of the show, I applied the Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in Covet (shade 19). The formula on this liquid lipstick is amazing! It did not apply streaky whatsoever and is very opaque. It dries completely Matte and is, in my opinion, very comfortable to wear.

MOTD: Copper Smokey Eye + Nude Lippie

This makeup look was inspired by YouTube Beauty Guru Jaclyn Hill and her old school favorite eyeshadow- MAC’s Coppering. 

I have had this eyeshadow in my collection for quite a while, but I never got around to creating an eye look with it-so here it is!

MOTD feat. Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette + Brief Review 

I waited for MONTHS for this palette to come back in stock and when I got the e-mail notification from Sephora last week that it was back I dropped everything and ordered it!


There isn’t anything new going on with my face makeup today, so I won’t go into detail about that, but these eyeshadow are AMAZING!!

This was my first time trying out ABH eyeshadow and if the singles are anything like the shadows in this palette then I seriously need all of them!

I decided to do something really dramatic and smokey for this eye look because I wanted to use as many of the shades as I could.

I have only used this palette one one and I am already obsessed. They are so increasingly pigmented, but blend effortlessly. They do have a good amount of kick-off, but that is something that kind of goes hand in hand with intensely pigmented eyeshadows (especially red shades).

After just one time using this palette, it has already become a favorite and probably something that I will dip into every time I do my makeup. If I could choose individual shades and put them together in a palette myself, it would look pretty much like this Modern Renaissance one. Now I understand why this thing is always out of stock, but if you are contemplating purchasing it DO IT!!

Hope y’all enjoyed this MOTD and be sure to follow me on Insta for more pics @marinaleebeauty!!

Pink & Violet Smokey Eye

One of my favorite eyeshadows EVER is Star Violet from MAC, so I wanted to do a look inspired by this shadow. I used Star Violet all over the lid and deepened up the outer corners and crease of my eyes using the purple shades from the Carli Bybel + BH Cosmetics palette. This eyeshadow will look absolutely gorgeous with any eye color too!

Greensmoke: Fall Makeup Look

I have another Fall inspired makeup look for y’all today! Typically Fall makeup consists of a warm eyeshadow looks and deep vampy lips, but I wanted to mix it up and add a subtle hint of color. The focus of this makeup look revolves around the MAC eyeshadow in the shade Greensmoke. It is a gorgeous mossy green shade with gold reflects that I think goes perfectly with a mauve lip color.
