Makeup Of The Week: Winter Wonderland!

Today is the official launch of Miss Motives Makeup of The Week! I am SO excited about this new feature, I can barely stand it! Shelby and I have been working hard on some awesome looks to share with you! Each week, we will show you a new look and how to achieve that look. Not only will it be makeup, but it will be a whole outfit as well.

In honor of all the amazing blizzards and chilly weather we have been having lately, this week we are starting off with a Winter Wonderland theme.

Shelby’s Look For The Week:

1: Prime lid along with light neutral tab color on your entire eyelid. Served as a base color. There is no picture for step 1.

2: Lay a darker, warm brown into your crease, blending out and up as much as you want.

3: Create a cut crease by applying a gold to your lid only, make sure you stop before the crease

4: Use a very light beige color as a highlight on your brow bone and also by your tear duct, if desired.

5: Take the same brown you used in Step 2 and add it right below your lower lash line

6: Using a Q-tip, wet it with makeup remover and clean up underneath your eye, making the lines look sharp and defined

7: Using liquid eyeliner create a winged look that goes out past your eye

8: Apply lashes, if desired.

9: Blend your natural lashes into the false ones using a mascara with a finer brush. Make sure you don’t apply much mascara to the false lashes as they will get clumpy.

Through all this cold, icky weather, it’s obviously hard to get some sun.

1. Apply a gorgeous bronzer, like Miami Glow, to your cheeks, hairline, and jawline.

2. Add a little color to the apples of your cheeks. A great natural blush is Flushed.

Keeping things neutral with a pop of color is not only simple and quick, but classy and gorgeous. I love La La’s Mineral Lip Shine in Big Apple.

For this look, I’d personally stick with a neutral color like Vintage, so all attention is drawn to my eyes.

Now, for the rest of your look…

I’m always running late so I need a “do” that’s quick, easy, but still super cute. My go to hair-do is a simple messy bun on top of my head. It’s up, out of my face, and I’m still able to wear a cute headband to keep me warm!

What to wear…

Since it’s cold, it is necessary to keep warm. An over-sized sweater, fun scarf, and cute boots will be a perfect outfit. Throw on a cute headband and some gloves (and of course a jacket), and you’re good to go!

Even in this weather, there’s still plenty of ways to look and feel good without having to put too much effort into it.

Stay tuned for next weeks MOTW!

Motives Monday: Mineral Mascara!

I am totally obsessed with La La’s Mineral Mascara from Motives for La La. This mascara is by far my favorite. My lashes are full, long, and individual. Not only does it make my lashes look completely and utterly gorgeous, it also is good for my lashes because it is made out of minerals. Mineral mascaras are hard to find on the market, but this one surpasses the rest.

The color I have on is black, but it also comes in brown.

Motives Monday: Tonic Nails!

As I told you all last post that I am really excited to bring some new additions to Miss Motives this year. Well today is the first day for one of the additions on my wishlist! Presenting to you, Motives Monday! Each Monday I will feature one product from the Motives by Loren Ridinger or Motives for La La cosmetic line.
This week I’m going to start with my most recent nail polish obsession, the color Tonic from the Motives for La La Nail Lacquer! It’s such a bright, rich color and guaranteed to stand out above the rest. Being in the dead of winter up here, I most definitely needed a pick me up and this was the perfect go-to polish. This polish goes on beautifully, is chip-resistant and gives your fresh nails a flawless, glossy finish. It’s a similar polish formula to the well-known brand, Essie. But in my opinion our Motives Nail Lacquer line is absolutely outstanding and less expensive than many of the popular nail polish brands on the market.
