Homecoming Makeover and Weekend Festivities!

Hey everyone! Yes, I'm finally posting again. As if last week wasn't busy enough, this weekend was even busier! Yesterday was my sisters homecoming and I got to pretty her up! She wanted a dark smokey eye to go with her dress and I thought that it was perfect for what she was going for!

     Before and After!

The finished look!

I love the color of her dress and it looked amazing with a smokey eye and nude lip! 

Get the look:


Foundation- Mac Studio Finish Foundation
Concealer- Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer
Powder- Mac Blotting Powder (translucent)
Blush- Flower Cream Blush in Pure Petunia

First, I applied her foundation using a Sonia Kashuk stippling brush. I LOVE the results I get from applying foundation using a stippling brush, and I really like this one. Next, I applied concealer under her eyes and blended it down the sides of her nose. Then, I brushed a blotting powder over her face, because she has oily skin and, of course, she wanted it to last all night. I finished her face off with the cream blush. I really like the color that showed up on her cheeks and because it was a cream it was long lasting.


Primer- E.L.F. eyelid primer
Eyeshadow- Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
Eyeliner- Revlon Color Stay Black Liquid Liner
Mascara- Benefit: They're Real! and Tarte: Lights, Camera, Lashes

For the smokey eye look, I used the Naked 2 palette. First I used foxy under her brows for some highlight, and then used verve all over her lid. Next, I used pistol in her crease and blended it with a little bit darker grey color from my sephora palette. Lastly, I used blackout in her outer corner and BLENDED it in. 


Lipliner: Clinique Quick Liner in Honeystick
Lipstick: Rimmel London in Nude Delight
Lipgloss: A coral color from a Sephora Palette

I lined her lips with a pretty nude color liner and filled her lips in with a nude shade. I topped it off with a coral lipgloss to give her lips a little bit of color and some shine. The color didn't show up too much, but that's really what I was going for. 

I had a blast hanging out with her and some of my family! She looked gorgeous last night and I'm so happy I got to fix her up! 

Here's a few more pictures from yesterday because they were too cute not to post! This is my little cousin, Lily, isn't she the cutest? Love my girl!

And as always, I have to mention my tigers win last night! Yes, I was at the game last night and it was cold and rainy, but I still had a blast with my man and his sister! Geaux Tigers!!!
Cheesy faces :)

Have a restful Sunday!
