Going to a party or out on the town and want to be the center of attention? Check out this makeup look I created combining a bright aqua blue glitter and a peachy gold duo chrome glitter. All of the products used are listed in the description box on the video.
When creating this Audrey Hepburn inspired makeup look I went for super bold brows, doe-eyed makeup, and red lips.
Main parts of her look:
- Brows: I couldn’t get my brows exactly the same shape as hers since mine are so highly arched. Her brows were super thick but very straight, with almost no arch.
- Eye makeup: I tried to keep my eyes very wide-eyed by skipping out on black liner along my waterline. The key to making my eyes appear larger like hers was using a nude pencil on my waterline. Also, the winged liner and lashes helped to achieve her flirty looking eyes.
- Lips: In many of the pictures I came across of Audrey, she had full-looking red lips. I could tell hers were slightly overdrawn but I decided I would line my lips normally.
Below is the complete Audrey Hepburn inspired makeup tutorial.

Steps to achieve this look:
- I first applied a layer of BB cream all over my face. I used one from Tarte.
- Next, I sketched out the eye sockets with Anastasia Beverly Hills Crème Color in Jet and started to shade them in.
- After that, I applied Maybelline Color Tatttoo in Fuchsia Fever all over my eye area and blended it into the black.
- Next, I applied Iris over the color tattoo and blended Noir from the Tamanna Palette around the outer part of the eye sockets.
- Then, I lined my upper lash line with the Crème Color in Jet and lined my lower lash line with Noir. I also blended Noir into the crease of my eye.
- I then applied my lashes and applied Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara to my lower lashes.
- Next, I sketched out my nasal cavity with the Crème Color in Jet and filled it in.
- After that, I applied NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk to my face using a buffing brush and a small precise eye shadow brush for smaller areas like around my nose and between my eyebrows.
- Then I drew flower petals around my right eye and applied glitter to the center of each petal.
- After, I drew lines along my cheeks extending from the corners of my mouth to my ears blending Noir underneath the line and then adding a touch of Iris as well.
- Next, I shaded the center of my lips with the Crème Color in Jet and applied Twilight lipstick to the remaining part of my lips
- Then, I drew stitches with the Crème Color in Jet.
- Finally, I set the white parts of my face with a white highlighting powder–you can use translucent if that’s all you have.
Ombre lips are very trendy especially for Fall. I often get questions about how to achieve this look and it’s honestly not that complicated. Below I’ve inserted a pictorial and listed the steps.
- First, you should exfoliate your lips to remove any dead skin. You can either use a lip scrub or a soft-bristled tooth brush. This will also make your lips appear more plump because, as stated in an online article, you will increase the blood circulation to your lips.
- Next, you’re going to want to outline your bottom lip with your lipstick. You may even want to use a lip liner if you’re using a dark colored lipstick just because that can help prevent the lipstick from feathering and bleeding outside your lip line.
- After that, go ahead and outline your upper lip with your lipstick.
- Next, use either a lip brush or your finger to blend the lipstick into the center of your lips.
- Finally, apply a lighter colored lipstick to the center of your lips to create contrast.
This dark, vampy lip combo is absolutely perfect for Fall and Winter. Pair these lips with a simple neutral cat eye and you’ll be good to go.
This ombre technique is useful in making your lips appear fuller.
Remember, there are no rules when it comes to makeup so get creative with your ombre lips! You can apply a lighter color around the outside of your lips and a darker shade in the center. You can even start with either a lighter shade or darker shade on one corner of your mouth and have it fade to dark or light.
Here are a few other ombre lip looks I’ve done in the past:
We’ve all had those days when we’re exhausted but don’t want to look like we’ve been up all night. Whether you’ve had a late night studying or were out partying with friends, you can fool everyone with these tips:
- One thing you can do is make sure you use a highlighting concealer under your eyes to brighten up the under eyes and conceal any dark circles you may have.
- Another way to appear more awake is to curl your eyelashes and apply some mascara to your upper and lower lashes. Curling your lashes opens up the eye. You can even take it a step further and apply some false lashes which will make your eyes appear larger and more awake.
- Also, you can line your waterline with a cream colored pencil or a shimmery champagne colored one. You’d probably want to avoid black liner on the waterline just because it can tend to close up the eyes and make them appear smaller.
- Another tip is to add a shimmery eyeshadow to the inner corners of your eyes. This highlights the area and brings light into your eyes.
- You can also line your upper lash line. This will make your eyes appear larger.
In the picture below I’ve utilized the tips I’ve mentioned. As you can see I appear wide awake and bright eyed.
Complete product details:
1.) Prime your lid(I used Urban Decay Anti-aging Primer Potion).
2.) Apply Vanilla all over your lid.
3.) Blend Nude into your crease.
4.) Line your upper lash line with Azure.
5.) Apply Emerald over top of Azure.
6.) Line your lower lash line and waterline with Liquid Gold.
7.) Apply @lapetitlapinlashes in Luna, @tartecosmetics Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara to your lower lashes, and highlight your tear duct with a champagne shadow.
On my brows I used @tartecosmetics Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse in Taupe and their tinted brow gel in Taupe.
Here’s the complete look:
The flower halo is from Mad For Halos.
Recently I’ve received Anastasia Beverly Hills’ new beauty blogger palettes–the Maya Mia Palette and Tamanna Palette–and have been playing around with a bunch of different looks ranging from simple everyday looks to full on dramatic ones. I’m really impressed with the quality of the shadows in each palette. They’re super pigmented and easy to blend.
Here is a look I created using both of the palettes. It’s perfect for going out at night. It’s an almost all matte look with some shimmer in the inner corners of the eyes.
I used the @anastasiabeverlyhills Maya Mia and Tamanna Palettes, ABH Waterproof Crème Color in Jet, # 415 Black lashes by @elegantlashes, @anastasiabeverlyhills Dipbrow in Dark Brown, and @hairandmakeupaddiction brushes.
I’m constantly getting questions about how I keep my hair healthy and split end-free. I visit the hair dresser maybe three times a year and each time I go they compliment me and tell me it’s in great condition. The best advice I can give is to wash your hair as infrequently as possible because stripping your hair of natural oils is the last thing you want to do. Your hair depends on these oils to keep it from becoming dry and damaged. Also, avoid using heat on your hair. If you must use a blow-dryer, straightener, etc. definitely use a heat protectant. Another important tip is to never brush your hair when it’s wet! Your hair is extremely fragile when it’s wet and more prone to breakage so let your hair dry or wait until it’s almost dry to brush/comb it. I comb through my almost dry hair with a wide-tooth comb rather than brushing it straight out of the shower.
Two products that I depend on are Batiste Dry Shampoo and Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum.
Dry shampoos are great because they absorb excess oil in your hair and enable you to skip a couple of days of washing. Batiste is my favorite dry shampoo because it actually works and allows me to go two or three days without washing my hair. I’ve tried many other products that claim to absorb oil but just end up making my hair oilier. Batiste also adds volume and texture to hair, which is always a plus. I use just a few sprays then brush it out with either my fingers or a comb because the product can leave darker hair looking a little white/gray.
The next hair product I swear by is Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum. I use a pump and half of this stuff on the ends of my damp hair and it seriously works miracles. It’s important to keep your ends conditioned and this product does just that. It helps prevent breakage and split ends without making my hair greasy. I wouldn’t recommend using this anywhere near your roots though, it’ll make your hair greasier faster and you’ll need to wash it sooner.
