Feathered Liner Tutorial

So I decided to create a tutorial on the feathered liner FOTD from last week. I love this look and I think I'll be rockin' it often because it's actually pretty simple and quick. It's like a tame version of Black Swan. I changed the shape a little, made it a little more fluid.

I noticed that my liner was wonky in the video.  >_<  I caught it in my first few photos. I debated whether I should redo the video, but I didn't want to record again...

How Shiv Should Have Done It! (FOTD & OOTD)

I have double whammy for you guys today! Not only an FOTD, but an OOTD to boot! Let us begin with my FOTD:

This morning I watched LetzMakeup's new video, Rich, Orange Autumn Eyes tutorial, and it inspired me to recreate it....BUT BETTER. Just kidding (you guys know I love her)! But I did change up a couple colours, and added black liner and lashes (because I have none).  I also wore my Venus Eye in Voilet circle lenses from PinkyParadise. I love these lenses because they are comfortable and subtle.

FOTD: Feathered Liner & Grey Vassen Cloud Nine Lenses

I recently saw a pin from TheGlitterGeek on Twitter with feathered liner. I loved it and I decided to try it out. I am pleased with how it turned out, however, I found the gel liner a bit too dry and I had to compensate some of it with my Ben Nye Cake Liner. I used a lighter grey on my brows to de-emphasize them a little.

I decided to try out the Vassen Cloud Nine circle lenses in grey from PinkyParadise. They are VERY dramatic and I felt like a doll. LOL! But they definitely make an impact similar to FX lenses. I think these will be perfect for a dramatic Halloween look that I am going to make.

FOTD: OCC Hush Lip Tar and Tess Lashes

WOW, I am back with another FOTD! I was inspired to do this look from a grainy photo I saw on Pinterest yesterday. I decided to use another OCC Lip Tar straight, in Hush, which is described as a pale bridal pink (very accurate). It felt a little bright/light for me, but it toned down in the photos. I also used another set of lashes, in Tess, which were just as comfortable as the Krystle pair.

The eye is VERY similar to my Bright Pink and Purple look I did recently, just the purple is more blue toned and the pink is more berry toned.

FOTD: OCC Pretty Boy Lip Tar & Lashes

It's been a while since I've posted an FOTD, mainly because it's been pretty warm here and I've been too lazy to apply a full face of makeup (GASP!). I decided to try out one of the new Lip Tars that Obsessive Compulsive Makeup sent me and a pair of lashes that EyeLuv.Me sent me as well.

The OCC Lip Tar in Pretty Boy is an amazing cool toned pink. Lip Tars have a soft minty scent to them, are a non-sticky liquid that kind of set after a few minutes, and they are SUPER opaque! I can't wait to post more FOTDs with them because they have some beautiful colours and you can mix colours to create even more unique colours.

They lashes were sent as a press kit from, the style I'm wearing is Krystle. I met the lovely ladies from at IMATS LA and they kindly sent me an extremely cute package with several sets of lashes to try out. I am in love with these lashes!! They have an invisible band, flared ends and are very comfortable to wear. They are also very affordable.

Now I am not happy about my eyeshadow at all today...mainly because I am not crazy about shimmery eyeshadows.
