Daytime Smoky Pinup with Winged Liner

Hi Guys and Dolls! I hope everyone is having a great week! SO Many of you have entered my Vintage or tacky contest! Thank you all. It’s a blast watching all your videos, but judging is going to be so hard! Don’t forget there’s still roughly 2 weeks left so if you haven’t entered/have NO idea what I’m talking about  click here. OK, SO I wanted to do an updated pinup look/ day to night look, and since I’ve never used my 28 Neutral palette I thought it was about time I did. I also included a less expensive palette available from NYX for those of you on a budget, who want something smaller, or are squeamish buying a palette with no brand name. Keep in Mind that both palettes are made in China.

A tale of Two Palettes:

OK, so the small Palette on top is from NYX it’s called “Champagne and Caviar” and I got from Mscuppycake’s website for 7 dollars (on the NYX website it’s 10!~) The colors aren’t richly saturated with pigmented, put they aren’t bad either. The shadows are a bit powdery, but if you use a good base it’s not really a problem. I’d say this is a great palette for if you’re on a budget and want a nice neutral palette that includes a white and a black.
If memory serves the dupes for what I used in the video are the 3rd color on the second row for the brown in mt crease, and the 4th color on the bottom row for the pink, and the 1st color on the 1st row as a highlight.

The Bottom, much larger palette is the 28 Neutral Palette which I purchased on here on ebay. Again, the shadows aren’t all richly pigmented, but it’s a better quality than the NYX palette. The Colors are buildable and for the most part are not powdery or chalky. Obviously there are more colors, and so more variety. The colors are smother and aren’t as powdery, and there are plenty of highlight shades including a duo-chrome (the bottom on the left). This also had a black but not really a white. Neither palette’s black is a true black, more of a soft black. The 28 neutral palette’s pans are also the same size as MAC pans, so if you wanted you could depot some of these colors and pop them in your MAC Palette. Warm and cool looks are easily achievable with this palette. Really this is the one I recommend, for it’s versatility and quality, but the NYX one isn’t bad if you’re on a  tight budget, or want something for travel. I know I’d never travel with this big 28 palette, so the Champagne and Caviar one will come in handy for me ^_^

    I noticed you used the term “lemming” in your video, are you an AFer? (the spam filled USENET newsgroup and it’s private yahoogroup sucessor) That’s where I first read the term used for makeup/fashion. Ahhh I see you speak MUA

    Satiny, matte, with shimmers might also be described as having an irridescence. That’s the impression this video gave me.

    Hello, I am trying to master the cat liner or wing liner look and you always have such informative Videos as well as taking the time out to write what products you used in your tutorials. Which I would like to thank you for. Many others do not take the extra time to be as informative. SO THANK YOU.. I do have a question and forgive me I am new to YouTube and not sure of all the makeup lines that are out there. Your ….Ben Nye Cake Liner & Medusa’s Makeup Eyeliner Seal if mscuppycake website is no longer active where can I purchase those two items. I love the stay factor it has in your videos. Please HELP. Thank you very much! Nativeamericn!

    this won t be connected to this specific tutorial, but what is your recommendation for a affordable stage make-up fixer (those spray thingies that you spray to get the make-up durable 😀 not the foundation you apply before make-up) ? my ignorance is due to the fact I would never use make-up if I wasn t a dancer, so it kinda forces me out of my comfort zones. your you tube tutorials are sooo much help, but there s just so many of them 😀 😀
