Easy Engagement Makeup Tutorial (Full Face for Beginners + Video + My Engagement Photos)

As everyone probably knows I am engaged to Mr. J my fiancé. We have been engaged since last July. It took us awhile but we did finally get engagement photos done. My main concern when with the engagement photos was that I wanted to look like me. How I normally look.

I kept it beyond simple, but in my opinion simple is best, at least in this case. Below is my Video tutorial of how I created this look: 



What I used: 
Eyeshadow: Maybelline color tattoo in barely branded as a base followed with Urban Decay Sin for my all over my lip color
Eyeliner: Stila Stay All Day eyeliner in black
Lashes: Kiss 'Looks So Natural' lashes in Pretty (in the tutorial I used Kiss 'Looks So Natural' lashes in Flirty)
Eyebrows: Sleek Brow duo in Light
Primer: Clinique color corrects dullness primer (the pink primer)
Foundation: Makeup Forever HD Foundation 110
Concealer: NYX HD Concealer in 02 for blemishing, Maybelline DreamLumi in Radiant for base conceal Maybelline DreamLumi in Radiant
Powder: Maybelline Dream wonder powder in 10 Ivory
Blush: NYX Pinched
Bronzer: NYX Taupe blush
Highlighter: NYX illuminator in Ritualistic
Setting Powder: Makeup Forever HD Powder
Setting Spray: Urban Decay Matte Spray
Lip Liner: NYX lip liner in cabaret 
Lipstick: Rimmel Kate Moss  Matte 01 Red shade

I had an even mix of drug store and high end makeup products. I used things I used in my every day life. I wanted my photos to be as natural as possible, from you know the fake hair I put in for the photos.

I used my Irresistible Me extensions, I curled them a day in advance so it had time for the curls to drop and loosen for a more relaxed look.

I am beyond thrilled with who we used for our photos! We used KAMera Photography for our engagement photos. Her prices are beyond reasonable for the amazing quality photos took of us. She is worth every penny plus more that we spent on these photos, she was able to capture the love Mr. J and I have for each other. 


Kait of KAMera Photography was a pleasure to work with she made the two of us feel comfortable as we pranced around in the snow. I recommend her for anyone in the Pennsylvania and New Jersey Area who is looking for engagement or wedding photos to be done. 

You can reach her by emailing kaitlynnamccphotography@gmail.com . 


Now the long awaited Engagement photos:

Project Pan 2015

project pan, spending ban, project pan tarte, project pan 2015, project pan with spending ban, spending ban 2015, college project pan, college spending ban, a beauty and the business,

After I bought even more making at the Sephora VIB sale, that is still going on, I realized I have SO much makeup! I decided to join Emily's Studio and Jackie He in doing the project pan for 2015. I follow both of them on youtube and wanted to join in.

I feel like I spend so much money on makeup and it's just so absurd I rarely finish any beauty products before they go bad! I'm using this as a way to use up some of my makeup or at least make a dent in things!

This is why not only am I working on project pan but a spending ban as well. I want to refrain from buying new makeup, beauty and skin care. No new products just refills of basics if need me.

I do have to admit I have a lash all coming. But I bought the lashes before I decided on a spending ban with my project pan! I also have a Sephora haul coming once my last piece finally comes in. I also order that before this post!

Does anyone want to join us in doing the Project Pan?

Below is my video of talking about which products I plan to use for my project pan.




Also here is my list of items for my project pan:
  • Duo clear and dark tone Eyelash Glue: I haven't been using these two since I started using my duo brush on glue, I should use these two up first! 
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy and Pampered: These blushes aren't cheap and need more loving from me! 
  • Tarte Christmas Eyeshadow palettes: I got these two palettes as part of QVC Tarte christmas kit, I used them a few times but that's it. They're not as pigmented as I would hope so I want to finish them up. 
  • Tarte Beyond BB perfecting liquid Foundation in light: This makes my makeup brushes gunky when used with a brush, want to use it up.
  • Hard Candy Bronzer in Tiki This is less of a bronzer and more of a beautiful yellowy bronze highlighter
  • MAC Studio Tech NC15: I love this foundation, I just want to finish it up! 
  • Top Shop Blush in Head over Heels: Pretty Cream blush that just doesn't get enough love! 
  • Too Faced Walk in Light:  Just was forgotten in my makeup collection
  • Too faced Melted Lipstick in Peony Got it as a sample and never really used it. 
  • Too Faced Milk chocolate Soleil Light/Medium Matte Bronzer:I feel like I have to be really heavy handed when I use this bronzer to contour. I just don't reach for it that much
  • Sleek Brow Kit: Want to finish this up before I explore more brow product
  • NYX Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel Got this in one of my Ipsy bags and just never tried it.
  • Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Deep End: Just didn't use it as much as I though I would
These are all the products that I hope to use up! I will be making a video and checking back in July to see the progress I made!

Mini CVS Haul: Maybelline Favorites

I had a bunch of coupons to use at CVS and there is a deal when you spend $15 on Maybelline you get $5 cash back that I just had to take advantage of! I picked up a few maybelline favorite basic products of mine.

Maybelline dreamlumi touch in radiant, Maybelline dreamlumi touch, Maybelline Dream Wonder powder , Maybelline colossal cat eyes mascara  , maybelline haul, cvs haul,

Maybelline dreamlumi touch in radiant, the lightest shade. I first bought this in the second lightest shade which matched my skin tone, I wasn't that impressed. I'm going to give this pen one more chance, since I know everyone raves about this product. It's just okay for me, does the job.

Maybelline Dream Wonder powder I've been having a hard time finding a powder that doesn't break me out. I'm reverting back to this until I find a cruelty free alternative. It works and does it's job. I find with this powder I get light coverage, great for setting my makeup.

Maybelline colossal cat eyes mascara in waterproof I have actually bought this mascara on two different occasions before this, see full review here.  I bought this in waterproof because I've been having issues with my Lancome mascara smearing. I did really like this before so I am hoping I'll love it in the waterproof form!

I was able to get this trio for $10.29 which is a total steal! I even got $5 extra care bucks back! wooohooo!

Do you have any suggestions for a cruelty free powder foundation that does not contain minerals?

Sephora VIB Sale Wishlist

I'm not sure about you but I LOVE looking at sale wishlist posts! It gives me ideas of things to pick up or try during the sale!  Here is my Sephora Wishlist for the VIB 15% off sale

sephora wishlist,  Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Gift Set, Chaz Dean Healthy Hair Care Kit, Origins GinZing Moisturizer, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette, sephora sale wishlist,


1. Origins GinZing™ Energy-Boosting Moisturizer $26.50 - I will definitely be buying this moisturizer! I love it, as you can tell it shows up in my monthly favorites a lot! I'm running low so this is a perfect time to buy it while I can get it on sale!

2. WEN® by Chaz Dean Healthy Hair Care Kit $42.50 -As you know I don't have to explain my love for WEN. I have yet to try the Sweet Almond Mint flavor, which I've smelt it a few times in store and it smells wonderful! This will probably find it's way home with me!

3. Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Gift Set $120 -I am in love with this perfume! I have a small mini just .3 oz and a rollerball of it. This is what sexy smells like to me. I love the rose scents the best. This will also have to wait a bit longer, I want to finish my D&G Rose the One first before I buy the full size of this.

4. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette $58 - I've been mooning over this highlighter palette for awhile now. It was in my cart right after I made VIB status but due to the price tag I took it out. I think I might have to moon over this some more, I want to get my fiancĂ© some cologne for his birthday instead! This will have to wait a little longer. 
5. Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick $21 - LA FEMME - I will definitely also picking this up! This will be a perfect lipstick for the summer! I can't wait! 

Please excuse the state of the background, It blended perfectly on my screen while I was making it! Not bad for the first time making one! At least I think so! 

What is on everyone's Sephora wishlist? Now how much are you planning to buy off that wishlist?? ;)

Gelish Party at the Palace Swatches

I was beyond excited when I heard that there was a Gelish Cinderella collection coming out since I was so underwhelmed by MAC's cinderella collection. I saw the colors of this collection and felt very eh about it. Except for Party at the Palace! I'm such a sucker for light blues with gold glitter. I love that combo!

March Favorites 2015

March has been a very busy but really exciting time for me( a makeup series in the works?)! Without further adieu here is my March Favorites!

march favorites, wen march tsv, wen favorites, wen spring honey lilac, wen 613, ro argan body conditioner, body care favorites, hair care favorites, makeup favorites, pale skin makeup favorites


Makeup

Makeup Forever HD Foundation N110 This is my favorite foundation ever. I am so glad I finally took that plunge and bought it last September. While I don't use it every day, I use this at least 4 times a week. Just the right about of coverage my skin needs, medium. This also lasts forever, only on my second bottle, 1 1/2 pumps is enough to cover my whole face!

NYX Illuminator in Ritualistic This is just a lovely golden highlighter. The shimmer is a super fine micro shimmer. It blends in beautifully, smooth. Gives my skin a lovely glow without looking fake!

Sleek Brow Kit in Light This is a bit darker than my brows but it helps me fill them in, in the most natural way! I like to layer the cream then the powder to make sure it sticks.

Mac eyeshadow in Phloof (shimmery nude) and Beautiful Iris (shimmery lilac) I have been using those two as base color for my lids then just adding my eyeliner for a basic look. I've been trying to use some of my old eyeshadows to make room for new ones!

Hair and Body

Wen Spring Honey Lilac  I bought this cleansing conditioner on QVC easy does it day for 4 payments, which I was able to buy 2 Cleansing Conditioners that day. Now for the cleansing conditioner, I HATE the scent but LOVE how it makes my hair look. It's such a killer to be honest. I've used it every time I washed my hair since I got it in the mail. My hair looks and feels amazing every time I use it.

Lush Ro Argan Body Conditioner I never experienced something so luxurious feeling before. It's such a lovely treat to use this in the shower, but the price tag makes me cry, a lot. This is what I use as a treat once as week when I wear my viktor & rolf flowerbomb perfume. The body conditioner and perfume layer beautifully together!

613 Styling Creme I keep this right in the shower with me. After I do my double cleanse, then a dime amount as a leave in, I apply this in my hair. Since I've been using it in the order my ends are so much better! I barely had to cut off any split ends at my hair appointment last week! It also makes styling my hair so much easier!

What are your monthly favorites? Has anyone else try the new Wen Spring seasonal?
