Midnight In Paris

Hi Guys & Dolls!

Last week I did the “No Mirror Makeup Challenge” on my YouTube channel and I received many requests to do a “real” tutorial using the Sigma Paris palette. I decided to alter it slightly adding more colorful eyeliner, lashes and switching up the lid shade. I simply adore this color combination and since it’s one I’ve tried on loads of other people, I know if will work for you too! This week I challenge you to take your time and enjoy the ritual of appling makeup, and if you decided to recreate this look please tweet me pictures and I’ll be happy to share with my followers @vintageortacky or instagram vintage_or_tacky

    I love this! I need to give it a try. I think I have MAC Sketch, and I think I have WnW Comfort Zone or something close. I just can’t get over how awesome the burgundy effect in the upper crease is.

    So pretty Cora! Is it wrong that my first thought was “isn’t that the name of a Jem episode?” when it popped up in my reader? I know she had one episode surrounded by Paris…ahh well. 80’s cartoon nerd 😉

    This is beautiful. I really love your tutorials. Something I found a while ago I think you might be interested in seeing. I know you’re very big on cruelty free cosmetics, and this site makes big claims about its all natural, green, vegan cosmetics. Thought you might want to take a look: https://www.theallnaturalface.com/index.html Hope they’re as good as they claim. Their cosmetics are great! Lots of love, Cora!

    Very pretty, have you ever worked with an airbrush system? I bought one but I’m not very experienced with it.

    i love this, i am only 11 but i still love makeup, i have my own and i will always be wanting to do makeup all the time. Although i don’t have much, which is the cost of being 11, and i really only have the essence of beauty powder brush, eyeshadow brush, i have an eyeliner brush, a smudge thingy magig, and a concealer brush, and a elf flat eyeshadow brush, and a l.a. colors blending brush. i do have spunge brushes but i think they are to rough to use and are scratchy. i have um a l.a. colors small blush packet.I am telling u what some of my makeup is so u can give me suggestions on what else i should get, or what i should do with my makeup. i also have lip glosses and eye shadows, but i feel like i would torture u by giving u all this info so if u want to know the rest u can e-mail me and i will reply soon. 🙂

    I LOVE this look! I actually did it for a Halloween party I’m going to tonight. Wish I could link a pic! Thanks so much for just being you! Also, after watching your videos, I cut my hair like yours and I’ve gotten so many compliments. Cut 10 1/2 inches off and donated it to Locks of Love, so this is a huge change for me and I love it! Thanks so much!!
