Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Look for the Summertime

This is copying Stephanie Ledda again. I love her and her looks. Whenever she posts anything on Youtube I get so excited to watch. I feel like she does pretty looks and they are up to date. I don't have her coloring. I am really porcelain colored with freckles, but I did this look anyway for the fun of it. This look is using reds and oranges. To find my dupes I used Temptalia's website mainly.

1. Sauced in the crease. I used Too Faced Peanut Butter.

2. He Devil in the crease. I used Anastasia of Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette in Realgar.

3. En Feugo in the outer v. I used ABH Red Ochre.

4. Sauced in crease again

5. Blend everything out.

6. Sauced and He Devil lower lash line

7. Chaser under the brow, blend out top of crease. I used Stila's Clay from In the Know Palette

8. Ounce under brow. I used ABH Renaissance Palette, Vermeer.

9. Scorched, I sprayed brush with water and got Garnet from Lorac Pro Palette onto lid.

10. I used a Wet 'n Wild purple eye shadow for my lower lash line. It was matte because I don't have a purple eye liner.

12. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer on top of forehead, temples, cheeks, nose to make me look like I have a little bit of a tan

13. She used a medium rosy brown, matte blush. I made my own blush using my bronzer and The Balm's Instain Blush in Houndstooth.

14. Golden highlight: top of cheekbones, above eyebrows where there is the arch, top of nose, cupid's bow and tear ducts.

15. Maybelline Nude Lip Liner. I used the Maybelline Lip Liner in Raisin.

16. She used Tarte Beach Babe Lipstick. It is light-medium, peachy-pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. I duped it with Blushing Beige Lipstick by Maybelline. 

This look was fun to create, but I feel like sometimes looks with lots of reds and oranges can make your eyes look sore, but it also can look really pretty so it's a toss up. The colors do go with the season though and I think I heard that these colors look good with any eye color.

The concealer I am really liking is Photo Finish Concealer by Wet 'n Wild. I get the lightest shade. And for lashes I used L'Oreal's Paradise Mascara and black brown. It works really well.

Easy Pretty Summer Look Inspired by Stephanie Ledda aka SMLx0

This is a look she just recently put up on her Youtube channel. I didn't have the same stuff she had in order to make it a sweat proof summer look, but it is still pretty. Some Summer days aren't that hot for some of us. If you want the full sweat proof look go watch her video here:

1. Moisturizer with SPF

2. Foundation, I used Revlon Colorstay for Normal to Dry skin and applied with my hands. You can use whatever foundation works for you.

3. Concealer, Spray a sponge with water and blot it out so it blends in.

4. Set with powder. Dab on top of concealer. Powder any area you need to set like t-zone and wherever you put the concealer.

5. Bronzer: Contour, temples, top of forehead, side of nose if you want to. I didn't contour my nose.
And I used Benefit's Hoola Bronzer. Use a matte one I think is best.

6. Matte Blush with colors like dark pink, coral, light pink. She mixed them all together and made her own blush. I used Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blush.

7. Use the same bronzer you used on your face in the crease of your eye. I used a fluffy brush by Real Techniques in circular motions and lower lash line. Blend it out.

8. She used a bronze stick on the lid and blended out with finger. You could use NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in French Fries for a cheaper alternative.

9. Shimmery champagne color in the inner corner. I used Stila's Kitten. If you want it to last longer you can use a pencil like she did or you can use whatever shimmery champagne e/s you have.

10. Mascara

11. Golden highlight, c motion on top of cheekbones, up on the temples curved towards above the brows and the tip of the nose. I like The Balm's Mary Lou Manizer. Use whatever highlight you want to.

12. She used a rosy nude lip liner to line and fill in her lips. I used Maybelline 40 Raisin Lip Liner. I think that would be a cheaper alternative than the one she used.

13. Nude Gloss: She used Groovy by Bare Minerals which is a soft pinky beige one. I think you could use any gloss you wanted and still get a pretty effect like her's.

Glowy Summer Makeup Look Inspired by Casey Holmes from Youtube

This is a pretty glowy look by this woman on Youtube. I copied it, and used my makeup that I had. You can use whatever works for you.

1. I used an Estee Lauder SPF lotion.

2. Dr. Brandt Pore's No More on my visible pores.

3. Milani's Eye Primer, just a little bit gently put on my eye lids.

4. Anastasia of Beverly Hills Makeup Palette in Modern Renaissance: Tempera eye shadow, from lashes to brow. It's a light matte shade to match lighter skin tones, and it will set your primer.

5. Use scotch tape to angles of eyes. From lower lash line to end of eye brow. You might want to see video to see how she does it. When you are done with the eye look, and you take the tape off you can see a pretty angle on your eyes that looks cool.

6. From same palette. All the eye shadows used are going to be from this same palette. She took Burnt Orange, crease, fluffy brush, circular motions.

7. Realgar, matte dark orange, on outside of the lid right next to tape and under crease shade. Blend everything together really well.

8. Primavera all over lid

9. She put glitter on the lid, but I didn't. I used my Mary Lou Manizer from The Balm and put it on my lid with my finger.

10. Line upper lash line, no wing with brown liquid liner, I used physician's formula one. She used black, but I used brown because I think it looks better on me.

11. Curl lashes and put mascara. I like the blackish brown kind from Maybelline The Rocket.

12. She put on fake lashes, but I didn't. I'm going to wear this out to my appointment.

13. Pull off the tape.

14. Foundation

15. Concealer, I used a sponge to blot the concealer and make sure it was all blended in ok. I did it under my eyes where there is discoloration. Not too much, just a little. Be gentle under eye so not to create wrinkles.

16. Powder on t-zone. I do it all over the face just a little bit to set everything ok.

17. I didn't do my brows, because I feel like my brows are defined enough and I want them to look natural.

18. Benefit Hoola Bronzer because it looks good on my face and it is matte. I put it on the edge of my hair on my forehead and on the cheeks to look sort of tan. And I also used it to contour a little bit.

19. Peachy pinky blush. I used Milani Luminoso Baked Blush because it is one of my favorites. I put it on the apples of my cheeks and up at an angle towards the temples.

20. She used her Smashbox highlight that she created, but I used my Mary Lou Manizer highlight just on the part of my cheek that didn't have too much texture. I don't want to highlight that. And a little brush I put the highlight in the tear duct area. Little bit on the cupid's bow, down the nose. You can put it wherever you want to. It is up to you.

21. Nude liner in the waterline. I did it too, but it probably just washes away.

22. Realgar, dark orange, lower lash line close to the roots of lashes

23. Golden Ochre, used to blend out realgar, i used another delicate brush.

24. Mascara on lower lashes.

25. Cinnamon/nudey type lip liner. I used Jordana's Lip Liner in Tawny to out line my lips.

26. NYX Matte Lip Cream in Buenos Aires. It's just a coral matte lip shade that I got recently.

27. Bare Minerals Buxom Lip Gloss in Katie. A sparkly pinky peach color that make your lips a little plump. I think this combo looks good on the lips.

Summer Makeup Tutorial: Bright Lips Inspired by Stephanie Ledda's Look from Youtube

1. Cream blush in summery color

2. Highlight cheekbones, nose, above the brows, cupid's bow

3. Setting powder under eyes, chin, nose, and forehead. She doesn't do it on the chin because she thinks it looks greasy. 

4. Bronzer, under cheekbones and on forehead. I use Benefit's Hoola Bronzer. You use any one that fits your skin.

5. Matte bronzer in your crease, lower lash line

6. L'Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in Amber Rush on the lid, I used my fingers

7. The Balm's Mary Lou Manizer Highlight I used in center of the lid, a golden highlight.

8. You can use a black or brown liquid liner in a fine line on upper lash line. I used a brown one from Physician's Formula.

9. Mascara. My favorite mascara I use all the time is Maybelline The Rocket.

10. Golden highlighter in the tear ducts.

11. Bright matte color on the lips.
