PicTorial: Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Hello, my Pretties!

Happy Valentine's Day!  I hope your day was as sweet and as wonderful as you beauties are!  Mine was good. Had plans to go for dinner and a movie but instead we stayed in and had a delicious homemade dinner with our girls and ate cupcakes for dessert.  The sweet-tart got our girls a beautiful pink rose for each of them.  I got makeup, of course.  More on that in another post.  It's quite funny.

Today I'm going to try something different.  A PicTorial.  This is a makeup tutorial done with step by step pictures.  We'll see how it goes!

Today's ingredients.

ELF All Over Cover Stick in Honey
ELF Eyelid Primer in Sheer


I applied the All Over Cover Stick to my brow bone area and the Eyelid Primer just to my eyelids.

ELF Cream Eyeliner in Copper


I used the Cream Liner in Copper as a base.  With my fingertip, I applied it all over my lid past my crease.

BH Cosmetics 120 Colors Palette 2nd Edition

Bottom layer of the 120 palette.


On top of the Copper Cream Liner, I applied a shimmery red (H3) but it ended up looking like more of a hot pink.  To make it more red, I applied an orange (H6) over the red shadow.


In the crease, I applied a dark brown shade (I5).


And to deepen up the outer "V", I added a shimmery black shadow (A6).

Top layer of the 120 palette.


I only used one color off the first layer of the 120 palette.  It is a very pretty cream color with shimmery gold. I applied that shade to my brow bone and in my inner tear duct area and that was my highlight.


Along my lower lash line, I used the Copper Cream Liner once again.

MAC Fluidline in Blitz & Glitz


Blitz & Glitz was applied to my waterline only.  It is such a deep black and it withstands the moist area of the waterline perfectly.

mark. Get in Line Hook Up Waterproof Eyeliner in Painted Black

Maybelline the Falsies Flared Volum' Express Mascara in Black

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Baked


I used Painted Black liquid eyeliner along my top lashes.  Two coats of Falsies Flared was added to both my top and bottom lashes.  And, the Baked Glitter Liner was added on top of the Copper Cream Liner on my lower lash line.

Exfoliating Facial Wipes for Sensitive Skin


I used the makeup remover wipes to clean up the edges of my eyes.  Worked perfectly at removing all fall out.

Avon Smooth Minerals Foundation in Medium Beige.
Anew Age Transforming Pressed Powder in Tan Beige.
Avon Smooth Minerals Blush in Blushed.


Full face of makeup is done.  All I need are my lips.

Avon Smooth Minerals in Rumberry
mark. Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in Choco Luxe


I didn't know which color to go for.  Full on bright lips like this in Rumberry...


Or more subdued lips like this in Choco Luxe.  Not as much difference as I initially thought.  Which do you prefer?

I apologize for the hoodie.  This was just a trial run I did this morning.  And also excuse the messy hair and unplucked brows!  Yikes!

How did you all like my first PicTorial?  Too many pics??  Borning??  Let me know, please!  I know that the pics aren't very good.  I am using a new camera and have been for a while.  I miss my old one.  The old one was much older but somehow I think it took better photos.  This is supposed to be a better camera so I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt.  I'm sure it's user error!

Hope you all had a great Valentine's Day.  A day we celebrate love...love of all kinds that we share with all kinds of people.  And don't worry if you didn't have anyone to share this day with.  You don't need a date!  There is only one person that you should love more than anything and that is YOURSELF!  Treat yourself like everyday is Valentine's Day.

Much love, hugs, and kisses to all of you!

Luv & Luk,
--L.

  2. This is a cute look, Lisa! The red eyeshadow is very pretty and not too bold. You make me wanna pull out my palette and put some looks together as well!

    That Smooth Minerals blush is the best. I absolutely love it. Purple Plum is my favorite.

    1. LOL, thank you! I love red, it's my favorite color but as for eyeshadow, I'm still timid using it. Haha. But I think I'm getting a little bit more brave so I might try red again!

    1. It is hard! LOL. I had tried once before but it was taking too long and it was frustrating so I scrapped the idea and never posted it. I thought I'd try it again. Maybe when I have extra time, I'll do another one :)
