Rose Garden Pink & Green Makeup Video Tutorial

7:25 PM

Hi everyone! Here is a video I recorded on a day that I was home from work after being sick the day before. You may notice that I am a bit broken out (SEE, I don't have perfect skin and I just went to the dermatologist on Tuesday) but I wanted to take advantage of my time home to record a tutorial for you all anyway. It's a brighter look than some of the others I've done since I know a lot of you were asking about how to use brighter eyeshadow colors. Also, you'll notice, BANGS! Everyone says I look more Korean with bangs. Ha.

The main colors are pink and green, so I decided to call it a "Rose Garden" look. It's very girly and cute, which is probably accentuated by my new short bangs that my mom tells me makes me look like a young girl. XD It's true, I had bangs like this in the 1st grade! I'm using my trusty old Eye Charm tapes again too, since I got some more requests for tutorials with those.

Anyway, here are the tools I used for this look:

* Too Faced Shadow Insurance
* Sugar Cosmetics Color Stick (green)
* NYX Kiwi eyeshadow
* NYX Hot Pink eyeshadow (shimmer version, not matte)
* NYX Cream Cheese eyeshadow
* MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
* Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Covet
* MAC lashes #33
* Covergirl Lash Exact mascara

* Lancome Photogenic Concealer in Camee
* MAC Studio Sculpt foundation NC30
* Everyday Minerals finishing powder
* Rock & Republic Blush in Kinky
* Dior Addict High Shine Lipstick in Backstage Pink (Sephora FF sale! LOVE it!)

By the way, this is random but I don't know if any of you noticed that in my Snowy Ice Princess tutorial I wasn't wearing any tape or glue. It was just a double eyelid-ish day that day. :P I didn't want to put "monolid" tutorial since I didn't know if it counted? Oh well, I'm sick of labels. My inconsistent eyelids are mine and I can apply makeup to them, no matter what they choose to be. ^.^

Okay, here are some pics of the final look. I know I'll get asked, so these lenses are Vassen brand in brown, I forget what type but they look very similar to GEO Angel Brown or Tutti Brown. (Click "lenses" in the labels because I know I've posted about them before.)

See these CUTE earrings? They are Eki's Love Lock earrings from I'll be posting more about them soon!

This is my favorite flower, an orchid leftover from my wedding decorations.

Lavender rose headband also from! SO kawaii!!! XD Also, why does my face look so weird and fake here? Strange angle, lol.

Just being a dork

I've decided that with my new bangs I either look like a fake-haired doll or like someone from a horror movie. I'm still trying to get used to it. WIG!

Ok, no.

Okay, hope you enjoyed it and thank you everyone for your recent support. Be sure to enter my appreciation HG giveaway, ending Nov 10th!

    Pinkyyy: Yes, I watched it on Eki's blog! She looks really cute it in. :D Have you tried placing the tape very close to your lash line and right at the inner corners? Sometimes that helps create the crease.

    I didn't know green could go really well with pink either so I've learned something new again :D

    And I love those earrings and have immediately went and order them lol. I'm afraid it'll be sold out really soon after you blog about them like what you did for the dove ones XD

  26. Omg you look gorgeous! I really want to try that eyelid tape now because it looks really natural on you =). I've tried other tapes and they have a weird texture to them that don't allow me to cover it properly with makeup. I hope these work better. I'll go on a search =)

  27. You really do look like such a flawless doll. Very cute. =)

    Oh, and I was wondering where you got NYX cream cheese eyeshadow. I can't find it on cherryculture or the nyx cosmetics site. Is it discontinued or did I look over it?

  28. Just wanted to say that you do wonderful makeup and do wonders with the look and colors.

  29. Wow you look so pretty with this look!! Just like a doll :) You remind me of a Korean celebrity <3 And your skin is flawless! Can't see your breakouts at all :)

    xx Anita

  30. Mae: Yes, I'm wearing Eye Charm eyelid tapes for this tutorial

    Erny and debx: I use brushes from lots of places! I love Coastal Scents brushes and Sonia Kasuk, but the eyeliner brush I used was from Sephora Professional series. Honestly, cheap liner brushes work just as well, imo. My favorite eyeliner brush is from Avon! Try a flat angled brush from the paint section at a hobby store, because it's much cheaper and works just as well. ;)

    Anonymous: here is where I got the Graftobian palette but you can get smaller palettes too. I bought the warm palette and mostly use it for clients. Cream foundations are too heavy for my own daily use!

    And yes, my skincare is mostly the same, although I'm additionally using the Clarisonic Mia at night now.

    Stephanie: Oooh, I'm excited to see it on you! :D

    Anonymous: In this tutorial, I used MAC Studio Scupt foundation in NC 30.

    disilluzional88: Oh no! I hope it isn't discontinued but I did find it here just now, color is ES119.

  31. Love your tutorials and cheery personality.
    Got to admit that I'm not a big fan of bangs on you. They elongate your face too much.

  32. I love the way your cheeks look, they go really well with the colours on your eyes.

    The circle lenses are also super cute!

    I really can't get over how well you do your cheeks, so well blended and perfect looking!

    Miss Neesh

  33. you're very pretty and bangs definitely suit you! :)

  34. Could you tell me which brand of circle lenses you are wearing in the video? I've been search for one that fit my eye shape (I am monlid and use tool to create double eyelids at time :)

    I like the black ring on the outside of the lenses so pretttyyyy

  35. ooopppsss... i didn't catch the lenses brand the first time. vassen!

  36. I love your color combination.
