MKGLAM VOXBOX!

I received my MKGLAM VOXBOX! I have always wanted to try out Mary Kay Cosmetics, but was never lucky enough to get the chance to test any products from them out. When I received this box I was elated to try out all this wonderful makeup! Mary Kay makeup always intrigues me, I thought it was honestly for more adult women, but when I tried out all these pieces, boy was I wrong!

First things first, the packaging of the makeup sent to me was so adorable! Besides the cute chocolate brown and candy pink box clearly labeled Mary Kay, inside was a slew of baby pink tissue with a happy Hello! greeting inside the lid of the box. It is so lovely to see a company that puts a lot of pride into even the handling of their products. As well, came a card explaining all the goodies I got in my VoxBox.

Below are pictures and captions showing you all the great products as well as my honest first impressions!

This is the Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Mango Tango. I love this color! It is great for a nice pop of color but doesn't go on too opaque. I like that it is a lighter lip gloss tint and I don't have to worry about it being to intense. This lipgloss has a nice applicator and finishes nice and glossy without any stickiness.

Here is the Mary Kay Cream Eye Color/ Concealer Brush, Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder, and the Mary Kay Powder Brush. To be honest, the brushes have some fallout, but it is minimal. The concealer brush is great for under eye circles and blemishes. As well the loose powder has been amazing for summer when I want to set my foundation and doesn't leave a cakey look. I love to use this with the powder brush included, it gives my skin a nice porcelain soft texture.

This is the Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush and the Mary Kay Bronzing Powder. These two products go hand in hand with one another. These by far are my favorite products from the box. Together they remind me of Nars Laguna Bronzer and blush set. They are very pigmented and are perfect for a pretty flush pink and sun-kissed contour.

Here is the Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara in I love Black. Just a coat of this mascara really does lift and separate your lashes without causing them to be clumpy or weighed down. I would definetly compare the quality of this to a higher end mascara and would recommend it for people who want a lengthening mascara!

I can honestly say that receiving this box really has opened my eyes and heart to Mary Kay Cosmetics. I have used and really enjoyed every product I was sent. I have definitely added some of these items such as the blush and translucent powder to my everyday makeup routine items. If you have not checked out their makeup before, I would definitely recommend giving them a try. Their company cares a lot about their customers and show that clearly through their care with packaging, service, and products.

If you have any questions or comments please leave them below! Or if you received this box as well let me know which products you liked or have been using the most! As always, Love Pearlsnheels ❤

How To Get Bigger and Brighter appearing eyes? TIPS & TRICKS!

Hello darlings! In this blog post I will help you transform your small droopy, tired looking eyes into big beautiful ones! Unfortunately most people, including myself are born with smaller sized eyes and hooded eyes. My eyes are slightly hooded, so most of the time I have to put in the extra effort with my eyeshadows to make sure not only you can see my eyeshadow, but to make my eyes appear larger.

There are so many ways to achieve a wide eyed look. I know we all see women like Mila Kunis…or Ann Hathaway and are like WHY DO I NOT HAVE DOE EYES THAT CAN MAE YOUR HEART MELT?! Or…At least I do this lol. this is where makeup is a magical tool, it can slim down your face and make it appear to lost ten pounds. Makeup can transform someone from shy and awkward feeling to confident and proud. Makeup can achieve anything is pretty much what I am coming to realize.

wpid-IMG_20130807_171517_595.jpg

You guys can see here that I am rocking a wide eyed look! If you look you can see my highlighted brow bone, and inner corner. You can see the brown eyeshadow swept above my natural crease. I also brought up the arch of my eyebrows. I used minimal eyeliner and extended it past my outer eye. As well I packed on the mascara to create larger, brighter, and bigger eyes!

wpid-IMG_20130807_171519_065.jpg

So if you ever find yourself wishing to have bigger eyeballs, eyelids, or brighter eyes then read on for my tips and tricks!

#1) Use brown eyeshadow. If you have lighter skin, than stick to a brown two shades darker than your own. If you have darker skin use an eyeshadow two shades darker as well. Take the eyeshadow and instead of cutting your crease with it, drag a line following right above your crease. Then blend this line in with a fluffy blending brush. Remember not to use a shimmer eyeshadow, because you want this to look natural. Applying eyeshadow and darkening the skin above your natural crease will give your eyes more dimention, but also give the affect of larger eyes, and a larger eyelid. This is an amazing trick for hooded eyes.

This step can lso be repeated on the lower eye, using a sweep of brown shadow under neath makes your eyes pop out more, just blend off any harsh lines.

#2) Use a Highlight. Using a highlight, as well as brown eyeshadows to contour your eyes can make a huge difference int he appearance of your eyes. Highlight with a slightly shimmered white or tan eyeshadow (depending on your skin tone) and apply a light amount on your brow bone, just under your eyebrow. I like to use a white eye crayon, such as Nyx’s in Milk, and line your waterline, and inner corner of your eye. This extends the white of your eyes and creates the illusion of larger eyeballs.

#3) Raise your brows! If your eyebrows are somewhat close to your eyes, it can make them look smaller on your head. When filling in your brows, create a higher arch and bring your brows up! I am not saying draw on fake looking ones, but with a little bit of lift in your arch, it can make a huge difference. Especially with a highlight under your brow bone, because this will draw light onto your eyes and make them stand out greater.

#4) Black Eyeliner. You can use black eyeliner to tight line your top lid to make your eyelashes seem fuller. As well as applying a thin line of black mascara to your inner corner of your eye and create a wing. Winged eyeliner tends to elongate your eyes. On top of this look you can add false eyelashes which also make your eyes appear larger and have fuller lashes.

#5) For my ladies who are desperate for larger eyes, and don’t mind touching their eyeballs! lol You can purchase contacts to wear daily that have a larger iris than your own natural one. You can purchase these online in many different colors and shades. These will basically make you look like your iris is a lot bigger, and your eyes as well. These are pretty interesting and make a huge different, as well as a lot of girls on Youtube are using them.

Some Don’ts:

-If you want bigger looking eyes don’t completely line around your entire eye with black eyeliner…this actually makes your eyes look closed off and smaller.

-Don’t cover your entire lid in black eyeliner…Most of the time if your eyeliner covers your entire eyelid, then it makes it look like you have barely any eyelid at all.

-Do not use dramatic lipstick. I do in the picture above, but because I felt like wearing red lipstick that day. But if you are looking to create a dramatic wide eyed look then go with some nude lips or light glossy ones, so all the attention stays on your eyes!

Makeup Look Of The Day! Sparkly Eyes? But Not Look Like A Clown!

Hello darlings! I am back with a sparkly makeup tutorial! I woke up and felt like I wanted to rock a princess look lol. Here is a way I decided to wear sparkles nut not look like one of Beyonce’s backup dancers. The best way to pull off this look and not using too many sparkles, using a glitter liner not a loose pigment, and keeping the rest of the makeup on your face neutral. I used Sephora brand Glitter Liner, it is surprisingly cheap I think it was about $10, and it is incredible! It stays on all day, but isn’t a pain in the butt to take off later in the night. Also, use the glitter liner only in the inner corner of your eye. This is where you want the lightest makeup anyway, and light to be draw. This will open up your eyes, and make them look brighter. I used a silver and white flecked glitter as well on top of purple eyeshadow.image

The best way to use the glitter is over a base eyeshadow that complements your eyes color; my eyes are green so I sued purple. Using a glitter liner as a pose to a loose pigment is best, because loose pigments tend to leave fallout uner your eyes, makeing you look like you got barfed on by Krista from Fern Gully. Anyone remember that movie from their childhood? It is good aswell to keep your eyesbrows, cheeks, and lips clean and some what neautral if this is an everyday look, because it will bring attention to your eyes. If you paired this with a bold lip, and cheeks full of rouge, then you might look like a clown ging off to work. Keep the eyes bright and the rest simple, I only have some light eyebrow makeup and a clear gloss on my lips.

I also applied some purple eye shadow under my eye to unify the whole look with the purple eye shadow on top. The purple eyeshadow I used is from my Elf mini eyeshadow quad in SIlver Lining, pretty good pigment for only $1! Like if you love buying Elf’s essential brand makeup! I used my favorite mascara, Jordana Best lash extreme on my lashes, and skipped the eye liner for today, because I didn’t want to cover the eyeshadow and glitter, it would have only taken away from the look.

image

As you can see there is not a lot of glitter, it is only in the inner section of my eye lid, this look was simple and quick to do! If you try it out please post some pictures and let me know how it turned out! 🙂 Thank you guys so much for the support and reading my blog, if you enjoyed this look please click the like button, and follow my blog! There will be more makeup looks to come so please stay tuned. Love always Pearlsnheels ❤
