Falling in love with Fall & Winter: 5 Looks for this Season!

IMG_20131006_135146

  Hey loveys, I decided to compile the best fall fashion styles, makeup, and hair looks for this upcoming season! Here in New England especially fall and winter are a time for packing away the shorts and flip flops and dragging out the old dumpy sweaters! BUT ladies, just because it’s cold doesn’t mean our fashion must fail. SO here are the best of the best fall and winter looks, so with the start of the cold weather you can transition in style. I will say you should still keep warm and comfy, but don’t need a snow suit :p

Let’s look at the hair! Fall is great to get funky with the braids and up dos, set let’s get fancy!

Whimsical and pretty! Here is a sweet style for medium hair lengths pulled back with a sweet head band.

 Love this fresh faced look, complimented by and easy hair do! You get to see the nice length of the hair, but the bangs are twisted back to showcase your makeup!

A cozy cap can be so warm and perfect for those winter days when you have no time to wash your hair!

Let’s get dressed up, warm, and stylish. YES WARM AND STYLISH!

What a smart looking outfit for the transition from fall in to winter. I love the dark jeans, leather boots, and a classy jacket is perfect for a complete look in the cold.

I am in love with this ensemble. A nude knit sweater turtle neck and a wine colored skirt is very romantic is feminine looking.

For a girl tough to the cold, some cute pink Uggs and tights look adorable!

I hate winter jackets! They are usually full of fluff and fattening looking. You can stay warm without all the padding, and settle for a nicer long jacket, this one has a particularly gorgeous violet color.

Lovely textures! A snowy white long sleeve and vintage pattern skirt! I love the statement necklace on top as well.

Your nails get cold too! Better coverup! Here are some warming winter colors!

Glitter and periwinkle attack! Very magical and a great color combo!

This color is great! It is a witchy green, that is a great complementary color for all skin tones!

& For my favorite the winter and fall makeup looks!

Bold brows, and burnt cranberry eyes. This is a very vampire inspired eye, with a fierce and fiery twist.

Great sparkling pumpkin look! This is a sweet eye look that pulls together all the colors of foliage and adds some special glitter.

49a99d084676b2f5a0f57bf6e798da5bGreat glamour look using greens and a highlight color. This would be beautiful for green and brown eyes.

Yup, I dropped a photo of Miley. I know, I know Judge fest lol But I love her makeup her! There is something timelessly classic about a ruby lip and great lashes.

A shimmery nude look is perfect for the everyday makeup wearer. This image is great because it shows you witch shadows to use where. This look really widens the eye and can go with any outfit.

Let’s Get Intense.. Circle Lenses Review

Hey loves, I know I have been MIA. BUT, I had a good reason. A few weeks ago I wanted to get circle lenses SO BADLY! I mean don’t we all want bigger eyes? If you don’t know circle lenses are..they can come in prescription and nonprescription.  They are colored lenses that are usually bigger in diameter than most contacts. The ones I am wearing are 15mm in diameter contacts, where as my usual size is about 14 mm. There are a lot of benefits to circle lenses, such as they can make your eyes appear larger, there are more styles and colors to choose from, and there is no prescription needed to order them! SO I have been wearing them for 2 weeks now and really giving them a go, to serve you up my own most honest opinion and review of them! 😀

wpid-20131011_144821.jpg

When you visit you optometrist, if you wear contacts, can recommend some colored contacts in the same brand that you already wear that are CRAZY EXPENSIVE. Yes, they have a range of colors that are all somewhat natural looking, and the most exciting color is light purple, and 3 pair will charge $175. Which is ridiculous. Being the cheepo I am I decided I was not going to pay that for colored contacts…I mean aren’t they just pieces of plastic you use and discard?! So naturally I googled. I found http://www.thedollyeye.com, and I read multiple reviews myself to see what their rep was. They are amazing contacts, that I have really grown to be in love with! Their site apart from contacts, has other beauty products as well, and is definitely worth checking out. Under the circle lenses tab, is where the fun begins!

They have so many colors, styles, themed, and sizes, and prescription/non-perscription lenses to choose from! The biggest challenge is figuring out from all the kinds which ones you want to buy, they are all wicked cool! I wanted like 20 pairs, for real :p On their site they also have links to pictures taken by real people wearing them so you can see better what they will look like in person, which is great.  AND they are only around  $25 per pair which is way better than the actual recommended ones from your doctor. In most cases always go to your doctor first, but in this case, I have been wearing contacts for 7 plus years now, and have tried many different contacts and brands, and as long as you buy them from a reliable source, know your script number, and use them correctly you are golden!

wpid-20131018_005610.jpg

As you can see, this is what you get when you order your contacts! Two vials containing your contacts in solution, I bought the Twilight Green ones, because I already have green eyes and wanted a more fun intense green look! Mine are in a -3.75 prescription, as you can see on the lid, and they even give you a little carrying lens case to keep them in. So to be honest, you have to get used to them…at first if you already where contacts you know the drill, don’t sleep in contacts, keep them clean in refreshed daily solution, ect. Circle lenses however, since they are much larger, deprive your eyes of more oxygen. With this being said, NEVER sleep in these contacts. Regular contacts you can get away with this once in a while, but which such a large contact lens, this can really harm and damage your eyes while you sleep. It is pretty much eye murder by means of suffocation lol

wpid-20131013_183352.jpg

When you first get them, take them remove them from the vile, by unscrewing the sharp (be careful) metal caping mechanism, and poor them into the lens carrying case and fill with fresh solution. If you have never warn contacts you can buy the solution at Target or anywhere for $3. It is hard to explain, but if you don’t know how to put a contact lens in, Youtube a video of it. Basically, what I do is gently pull down the lower lid, with head tipped somewhat down, and apply it to your eye while looking up, so you don’t touch your pupil, then let go and roll your eyes around till the contacts adjust to your pupil. If there is a lot of discomfort at first make sure they are clean, not bent, and are not in folded backwards, ha ha this happens sometimes…

AT FIRST, I got somewhat of a head ache…but naturally your body needs time to adjust to new things…as if you had a caffein headache. But after I got used to them, I have been absolutely loving them! 🙂 Mine are really intense but that’s just my style, but they have natural ones on their site as well! I recommend only wearing them for a bit when you start out, not to add stress on your sensitive eyes! Start off by wearing them for 6 hours maximum, and see how they feel. I don’t wear mine all day long, everyday. I wear them as more of a special thing, when I am going out, or want a dressed up look. I have gotten so many complements from people on these colored ones, it makes me just want more kinds. They are fun, and unique, and can really switch up your look. They are also great for people like me, who are always trying to make their eyes look bigger or more enhanced.

wpid-20131011_144929.jpg

I love pairing these lenses with lots of eyeliner and mascara, even false lashes, to really play them up and give them that Barbie Doll look, I mean why not? I suggest if you want them to look more natural, pick a color somewhat close to your eye color. If you want natural looking blue eyes, but have dark brown ones normally, it will be a little difficult for you can slightly see your natural eye color underneath the pupil opening in the lens, but only if someone was really looking. I have been wearing them for a couple weeks now, and completely in love, they are just that interesting pop to my makeup looks! I suggest giving them a try since they are so affordable, and you can really choose whatever ones fit your life best 🙂 You can find them at http://www.thedollyeye.com

Here is an example of a makeup look I rocked to enhance the color of the contacts, since they are green I chose a warm gold tone 🙂 You can see my own green eyes a bit, but it is not so noticeable in person, I love love love these bad boys! :p

Green Makeup for Green Eyes…Another big eye look!

Hello there green eyed girls! Or other eye colored beauties! This look looks great with whatever eye color you have and if you are just wanting to use up some green eyeshadow! This look is intense and mystical looking. I had a lot of fun creating this look, and if you want to re-create it on your own eyes keep reading! 🙂

image

 

As you can see below, this look is made up of different hues and finishes of green eyeshadows. I used a light gold on my brown bone and inner corner of my eye to open my eyes up and make them look bigger and brighter! I then applied dark mossy green color to the inner corner (above the gold) and the out corner then blended the colors out to look smooth and smokey. I glammed up with look with a dab of gold eyeshadow pigment on the ball of my eye, on top of my lid. This is well will give the appearance of larger eyes, because the light will reflect off of your eyelid.

image

 

Here you can see I added some mascara, but skipped the eyeliner. Eyeliner can take away from all the work you put into your shadows on your lid. Besides, kipping the eyeliner can give your look a fresher appeal and enhance the length of your lashes! Using these green eyeshadows, with darks and lights, can connect with your own green eye shade, and make your eyes look greener! My eyes always jump in the intensity of their color when I use green shadows. I used a white eye crayon, as I usually do, on my bottom water line, this really pushes the look and makes your eyes pop and look huge!

image

I finished the look with my foundation, concealer, and pressed powder to make my skin look pale and flawless. Then I combed my eyebrows and added some matching colored eyeshadow on them in order to fill them in and shape them. I also set them with clear eyebrow gel, which is nice when I don’t want them going anywhere! lol :p I used a red lip liner in a punch color to fill in my lips and then added a clear gloss on top. The light red shade works great for this look, because it is not too bright so it does not compete with the eyes, but the red is a contrasting color of green so they work in a very interesting and pretty combo!

Makeup of the Day: Gray Smoke show!

Hello my makeup beauties!  Here is another makeup of the day! This time…it is a smoke show! I love smokey eye makeup, and I was feeling a little edgy today! :0 I decided to go with a more subtle smokey eyes, that updated my makeup look a bit. I feel like no one ever rocks the smokey eye anymore, and it has gotten’ a bit old. Funny thing is, whenever I wear a smokey eye I always get the most comments on my makeup.

wpid-IMG_20130812_183448_399.jpg

wpid-IMG_20130812_183447_134.jpg

You can create this look with four colored shadows. I do not believe it is important to include exactly what products I used, because you can re-create this look with any makeup palettes you have lying around! If you really want to know, I used mostly Wet n’ Wild and Elf eyeshadows. You need one skin toned or white eyeshadow for highlighting your brow bone and inner corner. You need a base medium toned brown. BROWN YOU SAY? Yes! Using a light brown to define your crease, not too intensely though, will mix beautifully with the light cray you apply to the top of your eyelid. Using a bit of soft brown warms up your eye look, and takes away some of the harsh intensity brought with a smokey eye. After applying a shimmery gray all over the to of your lid, follow with a black just to the corner of your eye. You can take this darkest shadow and bring it up and a cat eye shape just as I have done in the picture above.

wpid-IMG_20130812_183312_045.jpg

wpid-IMG_20130812_183314_080.jpg

The key to a successful smokey eye is blending! Grab a fluffy brush and go to town my friends! Using the soft brush, clean up the look using windshield whipper motions and blend out your highlight, crease brown, black outer corner, and gray lid. When there are no more harsh lines left, create a small cat eye with liquid black eyeliner, I used my Revlon one. Then I finished the look by curling my lashes and applying two generous coats of black mascara. If you want to further intensify this look if you are going out somewhere special you can do up your eyebrows, and ass some pink gloss on your lips as I have done! As well tighten your top eyelids with a black coal eyeliner and the bottom outer rim of your eyes.

On my skin I am wearing some Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation and my Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder.

Seal the whole look in with a facial setting spray and you are good to go for the night! Hope you guys enjoyed my smokey eye, and please like if you want to see more makeup of the day posts! 🙂 Please follow me for more good stuff and leave me some comments with any future post suggestions or makeup looks I could try out and post about! 🙂

P.S I am thinking of creating a post on how to apply makeup to pale skin, since it has taken’ me a while to get used to mine! lol Let me know if this sounds interesting to you?! 🙂

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.

image

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 ❤

I also have a light purple lipstick on my lips! To unify the makeup look with the eyes! image

As you can see, this look really intensifies the look of my green eyes. I used a black liquid eyeliner on my top lid, with a pretty heavy application. Then I used a purple eyeliner and smudged it out on my under eye area. I finished the look with an eyelash curler and black mascara.
