Today's Look... Pixie & Berry

Yesterday I had posted a review of a couple products I had gotten from Avon. I received a mineral eyeshadow called Pixie Dust and a lipstick called Pink Berry.

Avon: Mineral Eyeshadow & Lipstick Review

Here is the look I came up with...



I created this look by starting off with my eye primer. Any kind of base will do. Then I applied my Nyx jumbo pencil in Milk all over my lid. I then blended it in with my finger. I then took the same pencil and lined my lower water line with it. After this I applied my Avon mineral eyeshadow, in Pixie Dust. I applied it all over my lid. Since the Pixie Dust is so light I decided to pzazz my eyes with a little color. I used Sugar Pill's Dollipop eyeshadow and a thin brush to line my upper last line. Then used Poison Plum, also by Sugar Pill to line my lower lash line. At this point I grabbed some Tako on a fluffy brush and lightly placed it under my brow as a  light highlight. I then applied my mascara. I used Quo's thickening mascara in purple. All done for the eyes!

For your face you’re first going to want to apply a base. I used the Velvet Touch by Gosh, but anyone will do. Then apply any concealer, and your foundation. Next apply your highlight. I like to use E.L.F's highlighting palette. It comes with four cream colors. I use the pink on my cheeks and the white on my nose, forehead, chin, and just above my lip. Make sure to blend everything in using your finger or a brush. Next you can apply any powders. I like to use Mac's Cooling Powder from there Venomous Villain’s collection. (This has to be my fave collection from Mac.) After all this is done I apply my blush. My go to blush recently has been A Bite of Apple by Mac. (Also from there Villains collection.) I apply this right to the apples of my cheeks (Smiling while applying this can help to really make your apples stand out.) and also lightly bring it up my jaw line as well as lightly on my nose.

Last for the lips. Begin by making sure your lips are nice and soft. When you first begin to apply your makeup put a little lip balm on to ensure your lips are nice and soft. Then apply your lip base. (My eye base is a duo. You can use it for eyes and lips. I would 100% recommend using a lip base.) After this is applied you’re going to want to apply your lip liners. I used two. J First I put on Nudist, a brownie-plum color. I lined my lips and lightly filled them in. Then applied Petal to the Metal, a purple-pink color. (I’d say more so to the pink side) I also lined my lips and filled them in with this color. When I lined my lips I made sure not to go right over the Nudist line, almost slightly inward. I did this because I like the faded out, glowing line around my lips, it makes them pop. Once you begin to fill them in your will see the darker plum shade it creates. After this I took Pink Berry by Avon and applied it on top. This gives it a sheen sparkle, and really make the lips look nice, smooth, and juicy.

I love love love the Pink Berry lipstick. It's so beautiful and soft. LOVE. The mineral eyeshadow, Pixie Dust, was exactly what I expected. It's not very pigmented so I didn't expect it to be a bright baby blue, it is very sheen, gives a nice shimmer, but not a lot of color at all.
