Zodiac Series: Pisces

29 Jun

So far we’ve done 7 signs, but unfortunately I don’t have pictures of all of them yet. I had to take pictures of Pisces because this has been my absolute favorite one yet. My model’s name was Lillian and she was an absolute trooper. Since pisces is a fish, I wanted to give her some really pretty scales. We had to get a little creative and use a tennis racquet to get the shape we wanted.

For her scales, I used blues, purples, and green from my 88 Ultra Shimmer Palette. The rhinestone I found at Michael’s for like 2 dollars.

Then for her eyes, I wanted to do something smokey and blue using:
-Urban Decay Shattered
-MAC Reflects Transparent Teal
-Navy blue eyeshadows from the 88 shimmer palette
-Matte navy blue eyeshadow from Wet N Wild Color Icon palette in Pride
-A shimmer champagne color for highlight

I had hella fun doing this look, and I hope you all enjoy it.

My Makeup Staples

23 Jun

I’m a big believer in if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. So when it comes to my makeup, I find myself returning to my same favorites over and over. These are items that I use pretty much every day.


Maybelline Eyeshadow in Nutmeg
As you can see, I’ve clearly hit pan on this baby because I love her so much. I love using this color to blend right above my crease. It really pulls everything together and completes my look. My true favorite is Maybelline Cream de Cocoa, but unfortunately, mine shattered at cheer camp =( For a similar effect, just get any matte eyeshadow that’s similar to your skintone.


EOS Lipbalm & MAC Lipglass in Love Nectar
You can just look at these and tell how much I use these. EOS lipbalm is super smooth, smells yummy, and is natural. It’s my favorite lipbalm ever. Love Nectar is such a pretty pinky peach color with little gold shimmers. If you’ve never had a MAC lipglass, its like happiness in a tube.


MAC Mineralize Blush in Gentle
This was my first MAC blush, and I’m hooked. MAC describes it as a raspberry with gold pearl. It looks slightly purple in the pan, but it’s gorgeous on. The gold acts like a highlight and really makes your cheeks pop. I’ve been wearing it every day since Christmas. I feel naked without it.


L’Oreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil/Stila Eye Kajal
I use these two pretty much interchangeably. They’re both really dark and creamy. If you’re looking for an intense black eyeliner, I’d suggest getting one of these.


Maybelline Lash Stiletto Voluptuous
This is my mascara of the moment, and it’ll probably change in a month or so. I really want to try CoverGirl Lash Blast Fusion, but this one does a nice job of volumizing and enhancing my natural curl.


Foundation
My foundation at the moment is Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Your Skin Makeup, Inspired By Carmindy. Goodness do you think they could have thought of a longer name for some makeup? I’m testing this one out for a couple reasons. 1. It was on clearance for like 2 bucks at Ulta. 2. I enjoy me some what not to wear. 3. It has a pump. Now as much as I love my favorite foundation, Revlon ColorStay, it lacks a pump. But no foundation I try seems to be able to make me fall in love like Colorstay does.


Urban Decay Primer Potion & Translucent Powder
I have extremely oily eyelids, and when I say extremely oily I mean my eyelids eat eyeshadow for breakfast. If I don’t properly prime my eyelids, I can start creasing before I’m even finished doing my makeup. I’m so serious guys. I wouldn’t be saying it if it hadn’t happened before. I had tried the infamous UDPP before and even that wouldn’t do the trick. I had given up all hope until someone on Specktra told me to set it with a powder, and I’ve been in love ever since.

Tape
My last staple may seem a little strange to some of you, but I love my tape! I use scotch tape to get really clean edges when I do my eyeshadow. Some people think its too harsh, but I absolutely adore my tape. If you’ve never tried it before, give it a shot.

My Salsa Makes All The Pretty Girls Dance

16 Jun

Well at least my new China Glaze in Salsa makes ME want to dance. It’s such a pretty red with a nice shimmer to it. It’s my first “nice” nail polish and I love it!There’s something about red that just really makes my nails stand out. This polish was just calling my name when I was in Sallys.

Here’s some tips to help you manicure last even longer:

Using a basecoat will help prevent that yucky staining that dark nail polishes tend to leave. Using a topcoat adds shine to your nails and helps prevent chipping. My Sally Hansen Double Life Base & Top Coat does both for the price of one =)

If you’re really worried about chipped polish, drag the brush across the edge of your nail. This will leave a little line of nail polish under your nail and further prevent chips.

It won’t necessarily make your manicure last longer, but running semi dry nails under cold water will make them dry faster.

Random green eyeshadow from 88 shimmer palette

First Thoughts: Formula 10.0.6

12 Jun

Now it’s time for my first review! Here at Four Foot Fab, we like to review using the Four F’s: Finance, Function, Flaws, Final Verdict.

To kick it off, I’m reviewing some products I purchased from Formula 10.0.6. And so far, mama likes. Formula 10.0.6 is a company owned by Bonne Bell that makes skincare products that cater to teens.

Finance:All of the Formula 10.0.6 products are either $5.99 or $6.99. The cleanser I bought was $5.99, and the moisturizer I bought was $6.99. I had a coupon for buy one get one half off, so my total came out to about 11 dollars, even better! Even without the coupon, these products were well worth it. They were cheaper than the Clearasil products that I was using before.

Function: The cleanser is definitely one of my favorite face washes. I’ve tried cleansers from Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, Clearasil, Proactiv,and Burt’s Bees, but this is one of the few I’d recommend to a friend. It smells really yummy. The passionfruit and green tea combo does great things for my life. Out of all of the cleansers I’ve tried, this one does the best job of removing my makeup. It does a really good job of cleaning my face without drying it.
Unfortunately, the moisturizer is just okay. It does a decent job of moisturizing my skin, but it doesn’t live up to it’s mattifying claims at all. In fact, I think it makes my face oiler than normal. Not cool =( Don’t think I’ll be buying this one again.

Flaws: It was hard to find a flaw in my new favorite cleanser, but alas it has no acne fighting ingredients. As a long time sufferer of acne, this was a bummer but nothing a little acne fighting facial scrub can’t fix.
The moisturizer however, has numerous flaws. First, there is the fact that it doesn’t do what it says it’s going to do. I didn’t feel mattified at all. Second, it’s a little runny. If you don’t screw on the cap completely you’ll find yourself with wasted product. And lastly, it contains parabens. I don’t mind parabens myself, but I know some of you paraben free princesses out there will have a big problem with this.

Final Verdict: The cleanser is fabulous! Go out and try it. The moisturizer however, i’d pass on it. I’m definitely going to try more of their products. They’re inexpensive, they smell nice, and the packaging is super cute! You can check out rest of their products at .

My Latest Goodies!

10 Jun

I just got a new camera, so I decided to break her in by showing you guys some of my latest purchases! I can’t wait to thoroughly try out some of these products.

I’m always looking for cheap but good skin care products. I bought this Formula 10.0.6 Daily Foaming Cleanser and Mattifying Oil Free Moisturizer from Ulta Buy One Get One half off. 2 products for 11 bucks? Not too bad in my book. I haven’t gotten to use them too much, but the cleanser smells sooo good and it does a really good job of removing my makeup. The moisturizer is kinda ehh so far.

Having straight hair in the summer is no fun. This gel lets me wear my natural curls on a daily basis without having to deal with frizz or poof. And the best part? It was only $1.99. I’m definitely going back for another tube or two…or three.

And finally my makeup goodies! After nearly 2 weeks of going eyeshadowless, I finally went out and picked up another Urban Decay Primer Potion. While I was on senior trip, I made my first trip to a CCO. I picked up the cool set of mac pigments from the holiday collection. I’ve got grape, fuschia, deep blue green, kitchmas, and reflects transparent teal. Grape and Fuschia are my favorites because they’re so bright and pigmented. I went to Sephora with my friend Rotce, and she talked me into buying the Stila Eye Kajal used by YouTube Guru MakeupByTiffanyD. It’s so creamy, but I think I may have a found a drugstore dupe. I should have a comparison out by the end of this week.
