Andromeda

I hate you, I love you. I hate that I love you, your facial animations make me want to barf some…..OK, so this is supposed to be a post for a Techy Thursday(I’m bringing it back) but then it isn’t, because I wanted to do a makeup tutorial of some makeup that really NO one would wear today because yeah it is from a video game. And a little rant about Mass Effect Andromeda. Which if you have anyone that plays video games you may have heard some rants. Mostly about animations being a bit first gen  and glitches all over the place. In my case I had an NPC(non player character) walk though a wall and disappear thus causing me to restart. UGH. SO, what is today’s post about? Well, I wanted to share the makeup from that game, One of the looks actually. When my hubby started his game we both went BLEH! WHAT? WHat is that? EWWW. Who would…why? Not to say that people wouldn’t like that particular eye look. We are maybe just being picky.


Looks like her head is trying to fall off..

Seriously BIOWARE, the makeup options future or not were subpar.There is not a whole lot of hair options as far as style and as far as faces. I really love Bioware games, a lot of women do. Really, just look at all of us who LOVE the Cullen Dating and Dorian epic bff simulator, I mean Dragon Age Inquisition. I get it is the future. I get it. Just like how everyone in the 60’s thought we would be in flying cars and dress a certain way and really here we are dressing like it is a more updated 1969. I am not saying the game as a whole sucks, no far from it. Damn it is fun, so much fun! But, the small things that can turn into big things. Annoying things just take the wind out of the sails. Sails for a AAA game that had so much hype and yet fell flat. Really, I am scared Dragon Age will have the same fate. Which Inquisition is so beautiful.  Don’t rush games, we can wait. Impatiently, but we will wait. We will still spend our money when the finished product comes out. The potential was there. It was there. How will it bounce back? I still am going to play the heck out of Mass Effect because it is fun. I might just grumble a bit over the little things…

Mass Effect Andromeda
We both like purple, BFFs?

OK, So enough of that, lets look at this here makeup.

Straight from your Pathfinder Nexus Salon…..

milani foundation and NYX concealer

not really….

You can pick colors! And transparency.

lets see you can pick blue

This is one of the looks! I am not even kidding!

Or purple….

 

 

Isn’t we wont even get into the neon blush and spotted shadow. For that I think a cream would be needed.  You can also pick mermaid colored hair, however hair options are also very limited. Which was also a complaint of Dragon Age, which leads people to Modding. With modding you can get better customization. Right now I haven’t heard of much Modding for Mass Effect, I know there is for DAI, for PC.

I got help a bit.

So really, there isn’t much to this “look”

If you cosplay it would be easy to recreate as there isn’t much thought to it. I used The Milani foundation 2 in 1 concealer foundation and Nyx concealer. Although with this you really don’t need the concealer for under eyes..because um you are a purple raccoon. You basically just apply in a small square from eyebrow to right above the orbital bone(cheekbone) I then added a bit of a darker blue and black to the crease and corner of my eyes, followed up with black eyeliner. it is such a silly thing.

I woke up from Hypersleep like this.

HAHAHAHA I hope you had as much fun laughing at this as I did, doing this “look” are there any other video game makeup you want me to do? This was fun!

Nyxing it up! Nyx liquid lingerie.

Hello there my happy friends!! It is time for another bloggery post. I am taking a break from playing my Xbox and dying from a great story line in DragonAge Inquisition to bring you this awesome bit of makeupy goodness. NYX! OH MY GOD raise your hand if you love NYX!!//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js

I know I do. So it is no surprise I got some of the Nyx Liquid lingerie.

NYX

 

The lipstick goes on smooth and dries a lot faster than the Liquid Suede by NYX. Both are fantastic products! The Lingerie has a more soft feel and not as sticky. Since it dries a lot more, the thing is though the color I got I had to appy 2 coats, as with the liquid Suede I only had to do one.

Nyx Liquid lingerieI chose a more neutral shade, which turns really dark with more coats.

I want the red tones and some pinks next!

It has nice applicator on the wand and you can get some great prescision with it. I do suggest getting a matching lipliner with the lipstick, the good thing about NYX is there are plenty of shades to match everything with. NYX is also super affordable ! I think this lippy was $6.99. THAT is a bargain! Will I stop getting the liquid suede in exchange for this, no. I like them both ! I got the shade embellishment.

 

 

Shop more NYX faves!!!

ULTA micro Haul!

ulta-microhaul

Hi friends!! Today on Gofashiondeals I wanted to really share my Ulta micro haul. Why? Because why not! I went in to ULTA for some new concealer and well, I was bad. I got all the things instead of just one thing.

ULTA HAULI got more of my Urban Decay all nighter spray. Which is hands down my fave setting spray. This bottle is $15 at Ulta.

I got the NYX concealer which I used yesterday on my makeup. One side was the NARS the other NYX, the only real different other than price was consistency. NARS is thicker.

Nars vs NYX concealerI think my NArs had more pinky tones.

But both have amazing coverage. At least in my opinion.

NYX liquid suede in cherry skiesI love this color and am so happy I got it!!!! So beautiful! And I wore it yesterday too!

Such a gorgeous shade! And I made a whole YouTube video of this haul as well as spoke of all the pricing in the video!

I love these products and yeah there were other things too like the hair mask which I used and WOW is it amazing! Definitely going to put that in Christmas gifts with the oil! Great stuff!!!!!!!! EEEK so good and it smells amazing!

Thanks for watching and be sure to subscribe to my channel !

My Easter updo.

Happy Monday friends! And I hope your weekend was well! My weekend was pretty good! My little one is back in school and I miss him already. Anyways, I wanted to talk about hair! Or fake hair, or real fake hair. I love my Irresistible Me extensions. And I am finding more creative ways to use them! More specifically in the braid dept. oh yes!

2016-03-27_16.31.18

I used a 1, 2,and 3 clip for this look. (Sorry for the walls. I am currently renovating my office)

2016-03-27_16.40.31

My son put things in my hair. Like pollen we were outside a lot. He probably thought he was helping my little giggly giggles.  For this style you place you extensions  in the order of 2,3,1. The 2 clip goes higher up on the head. The three goes about mid ear. The last goes on very last before braiding.

Thales your hair and make a pony, then make a hole in the hair and pull through. The one clip will go right under the pony. Braid away and wrap back up.

2016-03-27_16.45.37

I only used about 3 bobby pins. As well as a big ol flower!

Play Beautifully with E.L.F

Play Beautifully with E.L.FHi there friends! Happy Friday! Today is a great day! I got some great goodies to share with you from E.L.F! If you haven’t heard of E.L.F, then you are missing out! This cosmetics company offers top quality products for such affordable prices you can go back to ALDO and buy those boots! Wait, that was an inside thought. Sorry. E.L.F was kind enough to send me some of their new products to play with and post a look for the #playbeautifully challenge on social media like Instagram. I totally ended up looking like ELSA from Frozen.  I wonder if anyone noticed that hahah. I am not complaining mind you. OK, so they were kind enough to send their version of the smoky neutral palatte. AND I LOVE IT! Well, that isn’t all they sent. I got quite the haul!

E.L.F

Lets talk about the Everyday Smoky palette.

E.L.F everyday Smoky palette

It has shades taking you from day to night. For today’s beauty challenge I went soft, and made an every day look.  I tried to take pictures of the makeup look but, lighting and a little helper made it nearly impossible to do. Sorry, I think I will have to have someone take the pictures next challenge. He took all my brushes and ran off.

The shadows go on smooth and I didn’t experience much drop down. I always do my eyeshadow before foundation etc, because of drop down. This shadow is neat because it can be used wet or dry. Wet will give you a deeper richer color. I didn’t wet the shadow.

The Crease brush is what I will talk about next since we are on the subject of Eyeshadow.

wpid-2015-10-23_10.56.26.jpgIt is a bit fluffier than what I am used to for a crease brush. But it gets the job done. This brush can be for sure a multi purpose brush. I like it!

 E.L.F lip exfoliator

I was just thinking the other day that I needed a lip exfoliator. And E.L.F sent me one!!! They are Psychic. This looks like an ordinary lipstick, but I assure you it is not. It has a silky texture and more than that there are scrubbers in the lipstick. It exfoliates and hydrates as you use it. HOLY CRAP that is AMAZING and AWESOME! Really, happy with it. And I am going to make sure it stays as a part of my beauty arsenal.  It has a sweet smell and tastes sweet too. It really works.  Perfect for those of us who use liquid lipsticks or lip stains that can dry lips out.

wpid-2015-10-23_10.57.39.jpg

The Boudreaux Beauty. This moisturizing lipstick is so good it must be sinful. I love hydrating lipsticks. We all know that. This one at first reminded me of the Almost Lipstick by Clinique, since when I tried it yesterday in haste it wasn’t that pigmented. But, today I tried it for the #playbeautifully challenge and after two coats it was bright and marvelous. I have read on other bloggers sites that this lipstick series was good and now I am a believer. And the color is gorgeous!

Blush is so important in my life. It is truly the difference between vampire and elf. Both imortal, just one slightly on the dead side. Anyways, as being paler than Snow White, I am totally reliant on blush to make me look alive and healthy. I am always on the look out for a blush that is pale, but not too pale. Pinky in tone, but not overly Barbie pink. And E.L.F delivered what I look for in a blush. YAY!

E.L>F blush in berry merry

This color is Berry Merry and if you are paler than a Viking in summer then this blush is for you. Or even if you don’t want  a lot of color. It is a great blush. I think it would work with many skin tones actually.

 

wpid-2015-10-23_10.55.06.jpg

My whole makeup look required all of this today. Minus the belt and necklace. I love E.L.F and love being a part of this beauty challenge.

E.L.F makeup

I love how it turned out. Again I am not the world’s best selfie taker. But, I did alright. 🙂 What do you think? Which E.L.F products are you excited about? Have you tried any of these?

wpid-2015-10-23-10.25.33-1.jpg.jpg

E.l.f provided the makeup for this post. The blush, eyeshadow, lip products are all C/O elf. All opinions are 100% mine.
