New Holy Grail Foundations?!

Sooo I have been trying this new foundation out for a little over two weeks now. I have had days where I loved it and days where I just can't stand it... But no joke it has become my Holy Grail foundation for those natural dewy looking days... I am talking about the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation plus Concealer.. If you like full coverage but don't like looking Cakie... you need to try this, and if you are pale like me they actually have a color for us! It retails for $27.00 but totally worth it, being a little bit goes a really long way! You can always go to Clinique and get a sample if you do not want to commit to a whole bottle!

Beyond Perfection Foundation!

Duo chrome smokey eye tutorial

Decided to create  Duo-chrome look today after watching Batalash on youtube of her duo-chrome smokey eye!

Products I used-

Top 4 Circled in the picture above: First one I placed from brow to lash, next one over I used to define my crease, then the next row I used the first one to deepen my crease and outer edge, followed by the one next to it to blend everything together.(Sorry the shadows aren't named) I than took the shadow end of my elf liner and shadow stick and used it as a base on my lid, I blended that out with the two black circled shadows at the bottom of the palette. Then the star of the show, I applied ColourPop's Kindess all over my lid with a moist brush ( I use Mario Badescu Rose water to wet my brush) Followed that up by tight lining my upper and lower lashes and added a coat of mascara.
On my Face I used the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation in the shade Breeze and applied that with a damp beauty blender. Followed by Coty Airspun powder to set my foundation. I used the ELF Contour Palette in light and highlighted with Physicians Formula Mineral Glow.
Then I set my makeup with a few sprays of Mario Badescu Facial Spray.
For lips I used ColourPop's Lippie Stix in Brink!

There you go! Now I would love to see this be recreated if you do recreate it make sure you tag me in it on instagram using #DuoChromeRosa! Oh and please comment below any ideas on what you would like to see next!
Thanks again for stopping by my until next time, stay beautiful!

Elf Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer

So I have had a couple of people ask me about eyelid primers, now I have quite a few sitting in my make up collection... but I always find myself reaching for the ELF shadow lock. Not only does it do its job and sometimes even better than my high end primers... BUT the biggest bonus is that it is only $2.00 that's right... $2.00 and not going to lie I think it works just as well if not better than the UD eye shadow potion! Don't believe me, try it yourself!  Here is a link to it!
