Browns with Pop of Purple Using Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette Tutorial

084

1 Start with priming your lids. I am using NARS Pro Prime.

2 Apply White Chocolate (matte, off white) as a base shadow. I use a Sigma Large Fluff E50 to apply.

3 Apply Milk Chocolate (matte, light brown) to the crease blending upwards. I am using a Sigma E38 Diffused Crease for this step.

5To add a bit of Triple Fudge (mostly matte, deep brown with olive undertones) just to the crease. I used a Sigma E25 Blending Brush to apply and blend.

6Apply Hazelnut (shimmer, cool medium brown) to the inner and outer third of the lid. I use a Mac 242 to apply.

7 Apply Creme Brulee (shimmer, gold) wet with a Mac 242 and while it’s still wet blend the edges out with a Sigma E25 Blending.

10 If you want a bit more definition add some Triple Chocolate to the lash line.

11 Using a pencil brush apply Milk Chocolate to the lower lash line.

12 Apply a bit of Sephora Nono Liner in Plumb or anything that will help the next shadow stick a bit more.

13Using a pencil brush add Candied Violet (violet shimmer with silver micro glitter) to the lower lashline.

054Add some mascara and lashes and you’re done!061

Metallic Holiday Party Eyeshadow Tutorial

Share Button

I’ve been working on a look that was bold and works well for a holiday party. This Metallic Holiday Party Eyeshadow Tutorial is pretty but messy and uses the Saucebox Creme de la Creme palette.

 087

016_1 Start out by priming your eyes. I use the NARS Pro Prime.

018The base shadow I am using is Saucebox Snow Flake (matte, off-white) on a Sigma Large Fluff E50.

025_1Apply Saucebox Cream Dream  (matte, light neutral brown) under the lash line and along the crease, blending upwards and to a point at the brow tail. I used a  Sigma Small Tapered blending E45 to apply and a Hakuhodo J5522 to blend.

029 Here is where it gets fun! Apply Saucebox Secrecy (metlalic, pewter) to the inner corner brow bone and mobile lid applying it half way across the lid. I used a Mac 242 for this step.

032 Using Secrecy again, apply it under the lash line half way and along the outer corner of the eye. I used a Mac 242 for this step.

033 Blend! I used a Sigma E25 to blend.

036 Apply Saucebox Inception to the center of the lid and upward. I used a Mac 242 for this step.

040 I wanted this part to be a bit more intense, so I used NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray to wet my brush and go over the shadow. Then packed more shadow over the damp shadow. I used a Mac 242 for this step.

043 Apply a bit of Inception to the lower lash line on the inner half. I used a Sigma E30 Pencil Brush for this step.

047Apply Saucebox Rain (shimmer, light pearl) to the inner corner and generously to the brow bone. I used a Mac 239 for this step.

049 Apply Saucebox Future (metallic, cool grey silver) to the inner brow bone. I used a Sigma Small Tapered blending E45 to apply.

051 To deepen the outer corner a touch I added a bit of Saucebox Black Widow (matte, black) to the outer edge of the top lid. A Sigma Small Tapered blending E45 was used to apply.

055 Add some mascara and a thin bit of liner.

059 Finish the look off with some falsies. I am using House of Lashes Siren lashes.

I hope you liked this look and if you try it out make sure to hashtag #rebeccashoresmua so I can see it!

Warm and Burgundy Eyeshadow with Nude Lips

Share Button

049

003Start out by priming your eyes. I am using NARS Pro Prime. Then use a base shadow that is matte and close to your skin tone. I am using a Sigma E60 to apply and Mac Blanc Type as a base shadow.

006Next apply Makeup Geek Peach Smoothie (matte, light peach) from the crease, blending upwards with a Sigma E40.

007Apply Makeup Geek Chickadee (matte, light yellow-orange) to the crease and blend. I am using a Sigma E45 to apply and blend.

009 Take the same E45 Brush and apply a touch of Makeup Geek Coco Bear (matte, warm brown) to the outer half of the crease.

013 Apply a pigment base to the lid. I am using LA Cosmetics Eyeshadow Sealer. Then use a Mac 242 to apply Shiro Sanguine Addiction (shimmer, burgundy).

015Using a clean blending brush, blend all the shadows a bit more.

022Take Makeup Geek Peach Smoothie and run it on a pencil brush along the lower lash line.

025 Take Shiro Sanguine Addiction along the lower lash line.

031Highlight the inner corner and along the brow bone. I am using Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma on the inner corner (shimmer,  off white) and Mac Mylar (stain, off-white) on the brow bone.

032Add some brown liner to the lower waterline and some mascara. I used NARS Larger than Life eyeliner in Rio de Martelli and Maybelline Full And Soft mascara.

Bridal Inspiration

Share Button

I am going to try out a few other styles of blogs still in the beauty world, but maybe switching up for some inspiration posts, reviews and what not other than just tutorials. For this blog idea I have partnered with Loverly to do a bridal inspiration post. Loverly is a bridal inspiration website for more than just makeup with anything from flower inspiration to dresses. I loved planning my wedding and if I had the opportunity I’d be a wedding planner. I love dresses, colors, flowers and of course makeup, so this was a fun blog to put together.

I was browsing dresses on loverly and I found Elsa Tulle Skirt.

15941_elsatulleskirt-1401502833-128

 I chose this dress since I like the softer white color, the silhouette and the tulle skirt. It has a very soft, feminine, ethereal feel to it.

Now onto the makeup…

253

 

 

 

I chose a more classic and very soft bridal look to echo the dress. I used Saucebox Etude palette to structure the eye and Saucebox Creme de la Creme palette to add a touch of shimmer. I used Carousel Lashes in Iris, to open the eyes and elongate them. Benefit Rockatour was my blush of choice for the rose color with the satin finish which gives a youthful flush and photographs lovely. Lastly, I finished off the lips with Mac lip pencil in Dervish and lipstick in Faux to add a touch of color to the lips while still keeping the overall all look very soft and romantic.

Rounded Chocolate Smokey Eyeshadow Tutorial

Share Button

Hey, guys! I have a pretty simple eye shadow tutorial for you today that’s rounded in shape & chocolate brown in color. You can always switch out to another color if you’d like. I also added a gold highlight for a little something in the look.  I hope you like it!

142

115

080Prime your lids! I am using Mac Paint Pot in Painterly for my base today.

084 Use a base shadow. I am using a Sigma E60 to apply and Mac Blanc Type (matte, light cream), use any matte shadow close to your skin tone.

085 Take Mac Brun (matte, brown black) with a Sigma E25 and blend it from the crease up.

087Now take a chocolate brown shadow and pack it all over the lid with a Mac 242. I am using Makeup Forever 17, the old formula.

089Start blending the brown shadows upwards and over the crease. I am using a Sigma E25 and I added a bit more of the Makeup Forever 17 on the brush.

093I then take a Sigma E38 with a bit of Mac Wedge (matte, neutral light brown).

095Using a pencil brush add more of Mac Wedge under the lower lash line.

096Then add some of the Makeup Forever 17  to the lower lash line, as well.

102 Highlight your brow bone. I used a Mac 239 and Mac Mylar (satin, off white).

099I also like to add some Mac Embark to the inner corner.

105 Here’s an optional step to spice it up. Add a colored highlight to the corner. I used Makeup Geek Gold Digger.

112Now some mascara and a nude liner to the water line and you’re done! I am using Maybelline Full N Soft and Sigma Inner Rim Brightener in Final Touch.

Sigma Steady Glow Collection Review

Share Button

Sigma recently sent me their Steady Glow collection and now that I have tried it out I’d like to share with all of you. The collection contains eyeshadow palette, three lip glosses, three inner rim pencils, five loose shimmers & three shimmer creams. I also have a video here  if you prefer a video format.

Brilliant & Spellbinding Palette

037

091_1With flash

Left to right : IG2, Fay, Bloom, Sensatinal, Spellbinding, 10, Balmy, Radiant, Languid, Healthy Solstice, Hiatus

Brilliant & Spellbinding Palette

Hiatus –  Matte, neutral medium pink

Solstice – Shimmer, champagne

Heathy – shimmer + microglitter, golden champagne

Languid – shimmer, warm brown

Radiant – mate + gold microglitter, burnt orange

Balmy – matte, cool medium brown

10 – shimmer + slight glittery,  neutral brown

Spellbinding – shimmer + slight glitter, pale yellow (sheerer than other shadows)

Sensational – matte, burnt yellow

Bloom – matte + coral micro glitter, coral

Fey – shimmer, brown shift to  red

IG2 – shimmer, gunmetal with slight warm shift

Pigmentation: 7.5/10 The mattes are very creamy and nice & shimmers are nice with little fall out. The color Spellbinding is more sheer than the rest of the colors.

Texture: 8/10 The texture is quite nice, especially the mattes. The shimmers aren’t quite as velvety, but are still quite easy to pick up on a brush.

Packaging: 7/10 Quite sturdy cardboard packaging. Has a mirror, but the top needs to be held to be able to use it.

Colors: 8/10 Lots of neutrals, lots of shimmers, and some really interesting colors. Bloom, Fey, IG2 and Sensational are my favorites.

Repurchase: Maybe, only because I’m not a huge fan of palettes with a lot of shimmer. At the same time, I do own a few (eg, Naked 2) but I don’t reach for those as much.

 

Inner Rim Brighteners

050

047_1Final Touch, Unclouded, Polished

052
111_1Left to right: Polished, Final Touch, Unclouded

 

Final Touch – matte, pale neutral pink

Polished – matte, light warm tan

Unclouded – matte, white

Pigmentation: 9/10 Quite pigmented.

Texture: 8.5/10 Not as creamy as a typical eyeliner, but they are waxy which is idea for lining on the inner rim.

Packaging: 9/10 Basic sharpenable pencil packaging which also comes with a cap, which is quite nice.

Colors: 9.5/10 I really like the color of Final Touch for my skin tone. It will also work well for those with a cooler skin tone who may find the warmer ones look “off”. I like that they also offer one liner on the warmer side, as well.

Repurchase: Yes, I would repurchase Final Touch since one is ideal for my skin tone.


Shimmer Creams

Left to Right: Sultry, Brilliant, Superb

 

Brilliant – Shimmer/dewy,  light champagne.

Superb – Shimmer/dewy, rose gold

Sultry – Shimmer/dewy, warm bronze

Pigmentation: 8/10 These have a nice amount of color to shimmer ratio.

Texture: 9/10 I really enjoy the texture of these. They are very creamy but not overly sticky, so you can get an almost wet, dewy look but your face won’t feel gross.

Packaging: 9/10 They come in shallow pots with a screw on lid.

Colors: 8/10 Nice range of colors for different skin tones.  Personally, I would want one lighter than Brilliant since it’s slightly deeper than my skin tone, but I understand products for very light and deep skin tones are not always made.

Repurchase: Yes, although I cannot use them as a highlight, I would keep them in my kit and Superb is a nice blush on my skin. The texture is what I enjoy most, as I find many products like these to be too sticky.


Loose Shimmers

102Gilded, Midsummer, Ravishing, Ambrosia, Lush

099With Flash

Left to right: Ravishing, Midsummer, Lush, Ambrosia, Gilded

096_1Without Flash

Left to right: Ravishing, Midsummer, Lush, Ambrosia, Gilded

 Ambrosia – Shimmer, pale cool pink

Gilded – Shimmer, leaning glittery

Lush – Shimmer, warm base with pink and purple shift

Midsummer – Shimmer, leaning glittery bronze

Ravishing – Shimmer, pale champagne white

Pigmentation: 7-9/10 I find the shades that are more glittery to be sheerer than Ravishing and Lush. This would change where you may use them. A sheer color is great for a highlight but the more pigmented colors can work as eyeshadow colors, as well.

Texture: 7-8.5/10 I prefer the finer milled shimmers to the ones on the glittery side.

Packaging: 9/10 Nice small pots with a screw on lid. Each pot has a sifter inside, which I love for any loose pigments. They come with a sticker over the sifter so the product won’t get all over during shipping.

Colors: 8/10 The colors fit well with the theme of the collection and they can also be used as highlights or to add glow. My favorite is Lush which I have used on my eyes, lips and cheeks.

Repurchase: Yes, especially Lush.


Lip Vexes

114Left to right: Vivid, Chillout, Steady Glow, Skinny Dip, Dazzling

Chillout – Gloss, pastel cool pink

Dazzling – Gloss + glitter, brown with champagne glitter

Skinny Dip – Gloss, peachy coral

Steady Glow – Gloss + shimmer, peachy coral base with gold reflect

Vivid – Gloss, soft rose red

 

Pigmentation: 6/10 These glosses go on sheer, but can be built up.

Texture: 8/10 A bit of tackiness, but not too sticky. I prefer non-sticky glosses, however, they do cut down on wear time. I get about 3-4 hours of wear out of these.

Packaging: 6.5/10 The packaging is okay. They are less sleek then the rest of the collection and the brush is too floppy to get a clean line.

Colors: 7/10 Decent color range with most leaning to the warm side & only one cool. Vivid is a very pretty gloss color and looks nice alone or over lipsticks.

Repurchase: No. While I do like these glosses and they aren’t overly sticky, I rarely wear glosses myself.

Natural Looking Brows with Anastasia Dipbrow

Share Button


I’ve created this brow tutorial for those of you who are just not into the bold brows that are seen so often today. In this tutorial I use Anastasia Dipbrow to create a natural looking brow that’s still smudge and sweat proof.

198Left side is bare & right side is filled.

179 First, when using Dipbrow a little goes a long way, so barely touch your brush into the jar. Start underneath with a line from halfway into the body to the arch. I am using a Sigma E75 and Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Taupe.

180 After this line your brush will have less product on it, so use light upwards strokes to fill in the body. Keep your brush at an angle like in the photo here and go from the arch to the inner corner. You will want the least amount of product on the inner part of the brow by your nose.

181I’ve outlined he body of the brow in dots and this is how it looks once it’s lightly filled.

182Now, take a clean spoolie and brush it through your brow to blend.

183 If you’re like me and have less hair on the top of one of your brows, use a small amount on your brush to even it out. Doing this step depends on the shape you’re going for and if you like to even out your brows.

184 Draw a line along the bottom of the brow and create a tail. The tail ideally would end at the angle of your lower lash line.
