Liz Look - Lorac Pro Palette

 

Since I set up my makeup table, I've been having so much fun creating different looks every day! I decided I wanted to share some of my looks with you guys. So here it is!

 

Starting with my eyes. I used the Lorac Pro palette.

 

Lorac Pro Palette

 

First I primed my eyes with the Lorac Behind the Scsenes Eye Primer. Then I used the following colors: Cream on the entire lid and brow bone, Taupe and Mauve on the crease, Mauve blending up above the crease towards the brow bone, and Taupe on the outer third of the lid. I used the ELF cream liner in black on my upper lash line, and did a winged line. I set the liner with the Black shade on the palette. I lined the lower lash line with MAC  Eye Kohl pencil in Smolder, and smudged it with the same Black shade. After curling my lashes, I did 2 coats of the Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping waterproof mascara.

 

 

Brushes used: Sigma E55 to pack on the shades, and E40 and E25 blending brushes to blend, blend, and blend. The key to this eye look is the blending the color transitions like there is no tomorrow. To line the upper lash line, I used the Sigma E05, and the E65 to set the cream liner with the black eyeshadow.

 

This look is totally about the eyes, but I must mention the lipstick, which totally goes with the Mauve shadow, without being so matchy-matchy. I used the MAC lipstick in Odyssey.

 

 

There! Totally fun and yet classic look.

I am very happy to say that I started, and finished the makeup/nail/vanity project! This is part of my master bedroom/bathroom/closet organization project - which I'm doing one corner at a time. My makeup and nail products were being stored in a thin drawer in my closet, as well as in several Be Quicks, all shoved on the shelve below where I hand my clothes. It was very hard to see all that I had, and get dressed in the morning, not to mention messy. And plain hideous. My little drawer (actually half of a drawer) did work back when I didn't have as many beauty things. But my collection has grown quite a bit over the years. It's not like I could open my own beauty store with all my products. At least not yet.

 

I decided that getting ready in the morning quickly, and not wasting time looking for things was a very good starting goal in my master suite organization project. My system to organize my makeup and nail things was not working for me anymore. Please don't take me wrong. I love Be Quicks to organize beauty products during travel, It can even work inside a bigger train case when traveling. I wish Ju-Ju-Be made train cases, and specific makeup bags, to properly hold makeup brushes, and such.

 

Anyway, last Thursday I went to Ikea, and purchased an inexpensive, but cool looking table, with two large drawers, a led table lamp, and a chair. Sunday I got some drawer dividers and an acrylic organizer at Target, and some glass holders at the dollar store. Today I got an inexpensive large mirror at Ross. My mom and I assembled the table on Sunday, I organized all my stuff throughout the day. Earlier tonight we hung the mirror, and now my little spa area is complete!

 

I am thrilled with the result! No more digging through the makeup bags. Everything is at my fingertips. So organized! I'm feeling inspired!

 

Before: unused recliner/computer nook next to master bathroom

 

 

After: my new makup, nail, beauty center!

 

 

Future plan: Youtube video showing the details of how I organized the drawes, and a closer view of the table.
