Blinging in the New year

Hello today we will be doing a fun Smokey/Sparkly New Years Celebration Look. A little bit of glitter from Glamour Doll Eyes and 120 Pro Palette 2nd Edition and off we go!

To achieve this look :

Lets grab our 120 Pro Palette 2nd Edition and lets get started.

We will begin by priming the entire eye lid as we do with any look to help make the colors pop and last longer.

We will then use this Silver shadow all over the lid. Applying it wet will make the color a little more visible as well. 

Next we will use this matte black shade to create the smoked out look. Remember sometimes less is more so gradually add the color because it is easier to add than to take off.

As you see here we ill be applying the black on the outer lid and bringing it in gradually into the crease to add a little more depth.

Blend, Blend, Blend! Bring the Black into the silver and smoke out the outer "V" and crease and best you can.

This is where we want to be. Line the lower lash line and smudge out the black to intensify the smokiness for the look.

Now the Fun part. We will use this gorgeous holographic glitter called Hollywood by Glamour Doll Eyes on top of the silver we applied on the inner lid.

To adhere the glitter you can use a glitter adhesive or even false lash glue will do the trick.

We want to apply this as if it was a wet pigment on the lid. 

Line the lower lash line with a white liner to make your eyes appear more open and awake.
Add a pair of natural lashes and your look is complete.

We will keep the cheeks and lips more neutral to play up the focus on the eyes.

Here at Sedona Lace we want to wish you all a Happy, Healthy, and most importantly safe New Year. We look forward to sharing more with you all in 2012.

Review - 28 Blush Palette

Hi, again, everyone!! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday.

Today is a review for the 28 color blush palette available.  This amazing palette has most any color of blush and highlights that you could need to complete any look.  The colors range from a champagne highlight, to a baby pink, to a tangerine orange and finishes from matte to shimmery.  The blushes are highly pigmented, and the texture is soft and blendable.  The cost of the palette is $17.95 which makes each blush about $0.64 each, which is unbeatable!

The blushes are the perfect size for most any blush brush.  I love to use the domed contour brush, and it works with any look I want using any color.

Now onto the swatchfest:

Hi everyone we hope everyone had a wonderful holidays with family and friends. Today we will do a look a little more bright and flirty for these winter blues that some may be having.

To achieve this tropical sunset look go grab the 120 Pro Palette 2nd Edition an lets get started.


The Colors we will be using marks with a fun star fish.

We will begin by priming the entire lid with a white base to make the colors more vibrant.

We will then go in with this matte white on the inner corner of the eye to help make them look a little more awake.

Next we will take a little of each of these orange/red colors and apply them to the entire lid.

We will then go in with this hot pink color and apply it to the outer corner and into the crease.

Next we will go in with this shimmery purple 

We will also use this matte yellow color in the inner corner of the eye and blend out on the lid.

The Gey Here is to Blend as best as you can . Line the bottom Lash line with a purple and gold  Liner

A Coral Shade of Blush on the Cheeks and a Flower in your Hair will make you feel like you are in a warm and sunny place.

Glitter Greens

Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a wonderful start to your holidays.   Today's look is very bright and very glittery for the holidays. 

The first thing I did was primed my eye with a glittery primer.  This primer has glitter already in the product which helps get the look started.

I took the #941 and a golden creamy color and placed that on the inner corner of the eye, on top and bottom.

To really make this look bright I took a lime green metallic on the other side of the same #941 and also ran this color over the bottom of the eye.

For the crease I used a very dark green and with windshield wiper motions by the #863, I create some depth and drama to the look.

To finish off  the eyes I added a ton of glitter all over the lid using the flat synthetic brush.  You can use any glitter you choose, but, please, use a glitter that is rated safe to use on the eye area.

I lined the bottom and upper waterlines with a black gel liner and added 2 very thick coats of mascara.

For the face I used a color from the Sedona Lace 28 blush palette blended well with the domed contour  brush.

I wish everyone the Merriest Christmas of all!!  May it be filled with family, love, laughter, and beautiful makeup!!  We would love to see your holiday looks, post them on our facebook (listed below) or tweet them, or pop a picture in the comments!
