Vampire Fall

so now that i am in college i want to try an new look and the look that i am into is the fall look. the whole smoked out violet eyes or neutral eyes with a strong bold vamp look similar to the one in the image below. but i wanted to my own twist on it

and the only things i need to complete the look is a beanie and a red violet, plum lipstick. and then i can get started i am going to use the NYColor palettes that i recently got. so ill do a review on those at the same time.   Image1380618_738033406213107_76831249_n

Mascara and Liner NYC: New York Color

So in this review i will be trying the NYC Skyrise mascara,  Big bold curl mascara and  NYC high Definition liquid eyeliner

the big bold lashes has a huge  brush, its the one at the top in the second picture.  personally i don’t like big brushes mainly because my eyes are small.  anyway with my eyes i want natural long looking lashes  that hold my lashes in place, after i curl then.

Sky Rise Mascara ($1.99) I love this mascara, the brush gets all my lashes and makes them super long.  i would buy this again
it defiantly tops my favorite one  which is the  L.A colors Mascara in Black.

pro: it makes lashes really long

con: N/A

The Big Bold Curl mascara: ($4.99) not my favorite  mascara, but it does get the job done, makes my lashes full but i just don’t like how much the mascara piles onto the brush causing it to clump on my lashes i feel that that bottle should be able to peel off excess mascara so i don’t waste product.  similar to the new voluminous lashes container by Revlon

Pro: dramatic lashes, holds the curl,

Con: clumping

NYC High definition Liner : ($3.99) i am in love with the liquid liner.  it does on dark and heavy, its easy to clean up if you have a mistake but you really need to make sure you get everything.  so far I’ve been using this everyday since I’ve got it.  and love it. the downside is that the tip gets dry and I’ve never left the cap open the sides has the “ink”  so i have to slant thee liner on a side but it’s cool I still get the darkness i want.  I’ve tried it both with primer, without primer and I’ve  tried it on top of makeup  and it does well. just wish the tip wasn’t dry also, i should probably be going easy on the liner anyway.

Pro: Dark, long lasting  easy to fix

con: the felt tip dries

Makeup: Cheeks

Onto the cheeks,

blush comes in different forms again you have your powders, liquid ,and creme

blushes also comes in different finishes such as matte, sheer and shimmer, just like eyeshadow. they help sculpt and brighten/ bring your face to live.  cheeks can be colored up to  give your face a fresh face or  and sultry look. anyway,  when you want to add color to your cheeks there is a right way to do it. you DO NOT want too look like a clown. so here’s how to do it. there’s always  been the saying apply blush or blusher to the apples of your cheeks but if your are more mature you might want to apply them to your cheek bones. why? because your apples tend to drop as you mature (yeah sucks) so if you apply the blusher on your cheeks and you are mature when you aren’t smiling you are  the blush would drop on your face but if you apply it on your cheek bones it looks natural.

here gossmakeupartist explains it in his video.

so weather or not you apply blush from the apple of your cheek or the cheekbone you want to drag the color back to the temple you dont want to have all the color concentrated in on area so want the blush to look as natural as possible.

if your blush has sparkles in it, you want to go easy on the blush because you don’t want a face full of glitter, unless less ..that’s how you like it?

i mean it  wont look right if you have a face full of sparkles and highlight
