Miss Argentina Tutorial

One of my all-time favorite Halloween-Movie characters - Miss Argentina!  This is a super easy makeup to complete, as outside of the green skin, the other components are basic beauty makeup.  Instead of natural tones, we are using blues and purples to highlight and contour the face.  Check out the video below!

MOTD: Simply Vampy

Oh how I love a dark lip.  And now with Fall in full swing - this is sure to be my go to lip for the next few months.  I wore this makeup for the Target Styles event I helped host.  



I just picked up a few of Lime Crime's Velvetine Lip Colors and I am totally smitten.  I applied this color at 3:30pm and it was still perfect at 11pm.



You can't tell, but I was having a major allergic reaction to some pain meds I was taking post-surgery.  To fake the look of flawless skin, I mixed a pea-size amount of MAC Strobe Cream into about a nickel sized dollop of MAC Studio Fix Fluid in my hands and applied it with my fingers.  To make sure it was all blended I used a powder brush with a bit of the mixture left over and buffed until it was completely blended out.



I contoured my cheeks and eyelids with Blunt blush by MAC and added an iridescent highlight with MAC Pink Pearl Pigment.  I applied the New MAC Studio Eye Gloss in Lightly Tauped to add a bit of shine and sparkle.  LOVE LOVE LOVE this product.  It is quite thick and doesn't travel down your eye.  A few Ardell Individual Lashes to polish of the look and I'm ready to rip!
