Here is a look that I just played around with the other day! It is very simple & I think anyone could do it. If you would like to add a little more drama then go ahead and darken the crease smudge the liner underneath a little more & you could throw on some lashes! Below, is the list of everything that I used to create the look. If you have any questions at all please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Make sure you head on over to my FB Fan Page, Brittainy’s Beauty Bag, and become a fan! Also, don’t forget to subscribe to the blog 🙂
Here is what I used to achieve this look:
1. Primer: Urban Decay’s Primer Potion of the lid
2. Under Eye Concealer: MAC’s Studio Finish NW35
3. Base for Pigment: NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Chaos #724 (I know this is a lip pencil but I need a cream base for the pigment to stick to & this matched the color perfectly)
4. Lid Color: Loreal Hip High Intensity Pigment in Fiery #124 (I used a damp small eyeshadow brush for the pigment, using a damp brush will intensify color)
5. 1st Crease Color: MAC Eyeshdow in Hepcat (I used this in the crease but took it all the way to the inner corner of the eye also, smudge on the lower lash line underneath the black liner )
6. 2nd Crease Color: MAC Eyeshadow in Brown Down (I used this in the crease but did not take it all the way across)
7. Highlight (underneath brow): NYX Tri-Color Pallet TS03 in Nude/Taupe/Dark Brown (I used the nude color for the highlight)
8. Top Lid Liner: Avon’s Eyewriter Liquid Liner
9. Lower Liner: Nika K “NK” Cosmestics A01 Black Pencil Liner
10. Mascara: Tarte
11. Brow Fill: Bare Essentials Eyeshadow in Smoky Quartz
12. Brow Gel: Palladio Brow Gel

So even though I’m employed with MAC & I love MAC products I do like to use other brands! The other day I went on a beauty run to a local beauty supply store and picked up a few items from the brand NYX. I love NYX and think they make amazing makeup.
Remember you don’t always have to purchase expensive brands to get quality makeup…it’s all about how you make the products work for you. Good makeup artist use ALL different of brands, from Cover Girl to YSL!
Check out this pic of some of the items I got!
Here Are a Few of my Favorite Things!
I have some very cool news….BBB has it’s very own YouTube Channel now!!! Yea!!!! I have been wanting to do this for SO long but for some reason I didn’t have the courage to do it! Earlier this week I spoke to a good friend of mine & she challenged me to start posting videos…and I got serious! With her encouragement here we are today. I finally stepped out on faith and did what I was supposed to do!
I hope that you all will continue to support me in this new journey & I hope that you all will stick this out with me. I have made the first step (the hardest one) & I can only go up from here! Thanks for ALL the love and I hope that you will subscribe to the YT Channel…I can’t do this without YOU!!!
I hope that everyone has Merry Christmas and I will talk to you all soon!
Hey BBB Beauties!
I know that many of you are on a natural hair journey just like myself! Being natural is GREAT but at times it can be very trying! We suffer sometimes with dryness, products leaving our weighed down, split ends and a host of other issues BUT I am here to say that I think I have found one of the BEST natural hair care products out there. If you are battling dry natural hair and are tired of products that moisturize but leave your hair feeling heavy & weighed down, then I think that this may be the product for you!
It is Be Mine Deja’s Hair Milk and let me tell you I think it works wonders. The name says it all…it really is like milk. The product is very thin and milky but it packs a lot of punch without leaving your hair feeling like a grease bucket! It has all natural oils and will keep your hair moisturized until your next shampoo! The product does EXACTLY what it says it will do! It’s so light that I even put it in my hair when wet and still am able to straighten it with a flat-iron and it will have just as much body and movement as if nothing was in it.
So, your next step is to purchase it & try it for yourself! Check out my friend Tawanna over at All Things Curly ! She is a distributor of all natural hair care products and she would love to help you find the product that will work best for your natural hair! She has several different brands so she definitely has something for everyone!
Oh yea…Don’t forget to tell her that BBB sent you!
