Valentine’s Day Tutorial – Evening Purple Smokey ft. Milani Bella Shadows

I am really excited to share this look and tutorial with you all today!  This is another collab, my dear friend Honey, from youtube, came up with and invited me to do with her; using our Milani Bella shadows, and other drugstore products.  She created a daytime look, and I did a look for night.  To watch her tutorial click here (also check out her photos and read all about her creation on her blog).  I saw a photo of her look and it is gorgeous!!! I am looking forward to seeing how she put it all together.

I wanted to do a purple smokey, with a light purple lip, but I did not want the purple to be too bright, or too dark. To watch how I created my look, please feel free to click on the video below!

For my makeup look I used the following products:

– Milani Eye Shadow Primer

– Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded

– Milani Bella Purple Satin Matte Eye Shadow

– Milani Bella Pink Shimmer Eye Shadow

– Milani Bella Black Satin Matte Eye Shadow

– Milani Bella Ivory Satin Matte Eye Shadow

– Jordana 12 HR Made To Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil in Black Point

– L’Oreal Manga Waterproof Mascara in Black

– Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser

– Rimmel London Natural Bronzer in Sunlight

– Milani Rose Powder Blush in Tea Rose

– Fergie Shimmer Palette in Rose Champagne Glow

– Covergirl Lipstick in 340 Delicious

My Favorites Lately – Drugstore Makeup, Perfumes and MORE

I bought my Love and Toast Honey Coconut perfume from Ulta’s website.  This 3.6 fl oz is still being sold there for $27.99.  The notes in this fragrance include Sandalwood, Violet, Sugared Vanilla, and Sweet Honey.  At the moment, Pacifica is still selling the Indian Coconut Nectar on their website. For one ounce it is $22.oo.  The notes in this vegan fragrance include coconut and vanilla.

Both the Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick (Make a Mauve) and the Revlon Lip Butter (Berry Smooothie) can be found at drugstores and on Ulta’s website.  Prices may vary at location.

The eye shadows I have enjoyed as of late are:  Maybelline’s Leather Color Tattoo in Chocolate Suede, Milani Bella Gel Powder Eye Shadow in Ivory, Milani Bella Gel Powder Eye Shadow in Rose, and L’oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in Liquid Diamond.  These items also can be found in drugstores and Ulta (with exception to Milani, as Ulta does not carry that brand), and prices also may vary upon location.  The Milani Bella Shadows I have seen on Milani’s website, and I bought mine from my local CVS Pharmacy.

I have to say the L’oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara has become my favorite drugstore mascara.  It is just WONDERFUL! It adds good volume.  I purchased one in Black Brown at my local Walmart.  You can find it at drugstores and Ulta.  On Ulta’s website it is $7.99.  They also have a waterproof version of it (I plan to buy one after I use what I have).

I am delighted to find that Urban Decay does indeed continue to sell the Rockstar 24/7 glide-on eye pencil.  I have one which came with my Glinda palette. Since it was a limited edition palette, I was unsure if the eye pencil was as well and was no longer being sold; it is and it’s on their website for twenty dollars.  This eyeliner is a beautiful, purple, eggplant shade, and it blends out nicely for a smokey effect.

I received this Zoya polish (Blaze) in a three free sale that Zoya was offering on their website earlier this year.  It is such a lovely shade for fall.  I was really excited to hear from my friend Honey that they were doing the three free offer again.  This was one of the three free polishes I picked out and paid only for the shipping.  This stunning deep purple red is currently being sold on their website for nine dollars.

I purchased my watch and hair jaw clips from my local Walmart a while ago.  I was able to located the clips I bought there. They are the Vidal Sassoon Octopus Clips and this eight pack is being sold for $2.98.

 

sept favs5

Last item to make my favorites is this soft, split leather cross body.  I also purchased this at my local walmart.  I believe I paid between ten and twenty dollars for it and have being using it all summer long.  It has been such a convenience for quick trips and errands.

If you wish me to do a separate post, going more in depth about my experience with a product, please feel free to let me know!  What products have you been liking lately? I would love to hear about them!!
