Smokey Green Makeup Tutorial: Using Michael Todd Cosmetics and Sedona Lace Palette!

Hi y'all!

I did a smokey green makeup tutorial using some products I received from Michael Todd Cosmetics. They were kind enough to send me a few products. I haven't had the chance to try them all out yet, but once I do, I will make a complete video review :)

In case y'all are interested in checking out their products, you can buy it from here in the USA or here for overseas. You can check out their website MichaelToddCosmetics.com but the prices on the other websites are much cheaper :)

Here are the products they sent me:

Eyeshadow Base (compared in size to UDPP)
This base is a little watery compared to UDPP and the consistency is more sticky. After about 7 hours, the mineral shadow creased on me.


Little Duck Key Mineral Shadow
I really like the color, super impressed! This is shimmery green on top of black. It can be a little tricky when applying. I made sure to pat the color on first. I would suggest not dragging the color because the black shadow seems to overwhelm the green shimmer and leave a harsh line.


Champagne Creme Glace and Chocohalic Lipstick
I love the smell of the lipgloss... it smells like wafers. Yummy! This gloss is a nude shade, perfect just on top of a nude lippie for a little extra shine.
The lipstick is nice and creamy. Its more of a matte finish and very opaque. It's pretty close to my natural lip color.


Moccasin Concealer
This concealer is a bit too light on me. I found it works well for brightening my undereye area. It's very creamy. I haven't used it as much as the other products so I will have to get back to y'all on it's coverage later in the review video.


Love Potion Gel Liner
I haven't had the chance to try this out yet. It look really pretty though. More details in the review video later :)


I tried out this look with some of the products when I first received them. Eye makeup is the same as the video, except I didn't wear any falsies. Also, I'm wearing the Chocohalic lipstick instead of a nude lip.

What I'm Wearing Today!

Hi y'all!

I am super behind on blogging. Aghh!

Recently, I have realized that I haven't had a break from school since last summer. No joke. I took classes in the fall, winter (aka Xmas "break"), spring, maymester, and summer. I have my finals for summer next week... I cannot wait to have a little bit of breathing time. The end is in sight! I graduate in December with my BBA in Accounting and will be eligible to sit for the CPA (certified public accountant) exam! Truth be told, I am soooo burned out. I'm trying to pull motivation from anywhere right now >,<

Needless to say, my schedule has been HECTIC. So, I have very little time to edit tutorials. I did an outfit of the day video way back in March that people seemed to like. They're super simple to record and very minimal editing... so I've started doing more of them :) I'm super duper behind so this post is dedicated to my What I'm Wearing videos to catch myself and y'all up to speed!

Btw, I don't consider myself a fashionista at all. My everyday style is simple, flattering, and feminine. I'm not really into loud prints, although I like leopard and giraffe print. Celebs whose style I love are Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba, Eva Longoria, and Vanessa Hudgens.
