Beauty Look of The Day: I’m Your Wing Man


Okay, I officially don’t wear makeup every day, but when the opportunity comes I try to go all out and spread my product junkie wings.  I broke out the liquid eyeliner and was ready to give my eyes some wings.  That meant going easy on the shadow and have my lips give the pop of color I always have to have.   Because the occasion called for a little formality, I went with an updo and a flower hair accessory to bring in some cuteness. :)

  • I prepped my lids with a little foundation to brighten them up (my dark circles are no joke!)
  • For more brightness I dusted TooFaced’s Heaven all over my lids and brow bone
  • For the winged eyeliner I used Rimmel London’s Exaggerated liquid eyeliner in black.  Because my liquid liner skills aren’t the best, I started with a thin line, building up to a thicker line and wings in the creases
  • I finished up with my favorite Buxom mascara.  (I seriously have to buy some more!)

This called for one of my CoverGirl Lipsticks.  I chose Embrace because I don’t wear this shade that often.

  • I spritzed the edges my hair with water and applied Shea Moisture’s Curling Soufflé.  I find that this hair gel gives more shine and better hold on damp hair.
  • Using a headband that I cut in half to tie up my hair into a high puff.  My hair isn’t quite long enough to do a full fledge pony tail.  This way I get a lot more volume.
  • Secured everything with pins and clipped a flower in my hair

    I love your lippie and wing lined eyes are always a great beauty classic – I like doing them but never get them even on each side!
    My favourite beauty look is red lipstick!
