Rob Scheppy for ‘Tini Beauty Shadow Palette

rob scheppy palette

The Rob Scheppy for ‘Tini Beauty eye shadow palette was personally crafted by the creator of Kim Kardashian’s signature smokey eye. This dual-textured collection boasts 4 pigment-rich matte and shimmer shade pairings designed to “cocktail” – wear alone or in any combination to create custom looks.

I like that the palette itself is smaller and can fit in my purse or gym bag. And the shadows were created to be used wet or dry depending on the look you are going for. With a collection of mattes and shimmers this has become a go to palette for my everyday wear.

Swatch of the palette from left to right is White Russian, Pearl Fizz, Rose Champagne, Cinnamon-tini, Pavlova, Cuba Libre, Blackout and Bella Notte.

I found the lighter shades were not very pigmented and didn’t show up very well. The White Russian even with 3 swipes is barely visible. I think a dab of water would make this apply a little darker though. The mid to dark shades though had great pigment and great staying power even when tested without a shadow primer. Overall I think this is a great collection every day colors and a few shimmers to kick your look up a bit. Very wearable and I will be getting lots of use from this set.

Get The Look: Katy Perry’s Super Bowl XLIX Half Time Show with COVERGIRL

Today is one of the most exciting days of my career! Knowing my work would be seen by millions and millions of people I’ve been understandably nervous. Katy’s performance had multiple costume changes so I needed to create a strong look that would complement all of her outfits, as there was absolutely no time for a touch up in between the quick changes. It’s the Super Bowl after all!

I decided to go with a classic Katy look — elongated cat eyes, lots of mascara, super sparkly gold and silver glitter, and a bold red lip for glamour and showmanship. I wanted her to glow and sparkle for her big moment in just nine steps!

1. To create a sheer and flawless canvas I began by buffing a dime size amount of COVERGIRL Outlast 3-in-1 Foundation in Natural Beige all over her face and neck.

2. For an elongated cat eye I used COVERGIRL Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner in Black Onyx and painted a glitter adhesive just above the black liner and carefully placed a mix of gold and silver glitter on the adhesive with a tiny eyeliner brush for precision.

3. Then I applied COVERGIRL Eye Shadow Quads in Blooming Blushes to add warmth and dimension. I love this palette because it takes the guesswork out of getting gorgeous eyes, it has number for the shades – 1,2,3,4 – so I know just how to apply! I used the fourth shade to define the crease and the first shade to highlight the lids.

4. I finished the eye look with an aggressive lash curling and two coats of new COVERGIRL Full Lash Bloom by LashBlast Mascara in Very Black that left her lashes voluminous and touchably soft throughout her performance! No time for flakes during this performance.

5. To give her brows shape and structure, I added COVERGIRL Pow-der Brow + Liner in Dark Brown.

6. For extra dimension, I warmed her cheeks using COVERGIRL Clean Glow Blush in Roses using the lighter shades on the apples of her cheeks and the darker shade in the hollows of her cheeks

7. Then I added COVERGIRL truMAGIC Luminizer to her cheekbones and brow bones for a shimmery glow.

8. Moving on to the lips, I lined and shaped her lips using COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lip Liner in Hot. I then applied a coat of new COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick in Seduce Scarlet – truly a classic red, for a classic Katy look.

9. I topped it off with a tiny dollop of COVERGIRL Lip Lava in Mauva Lava for a fun and bold lip look!


Review: Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow and Perversion Mascara!

IMG_5348

Over the last week I’ve purchased Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow in Sellout, a nude/shimmer color that is absolutely stunning. I love it! It is highly pigmented, and lasts all day!

Insane color payout. A velvety, suede-like smoothness and blendability. Urban Decay’s  mind-blowing formula delivers unmatched performance in a stunning array of shades. They created an Eyeshadow formula that will BLOW YOUR MIND. (And the packaging is amazing too!)

THE FORMULA
Soft, amazingly velvety texture
• Rich, dense and decadent color
• Smooth, uniform pigment distribution and blendability
• Long-lasting, crease-free wear

The secret to the new formula is their Pigment Infusion System™, a vehicle for color that holds tightly to pigment and gives the formula its glide. The proprietary blend of ingredients allows color to weave itself through the Eyeshadow formula. What does all that mean? Insane payout. Color that stays on your lids. Sparkle that doesn’t fall. And a velvety, suede-like smoothness and blendability.

This amazing technology works for every shade and finish. Have you ever had trouble blending a black or purple shade? How about a matte? Every Urban Decay shade goes on silky, blends easily and stays put. (It’s true!)

I paired that with a sample I’ve recently gotten from UD, their Perversion mascara. Boy do I wish I had more of this stuff! It is absolutely AMAZING! It goes on easily – and it makes my lashes look ridiculously long! Check out the final result of these two products together below!

Get bigger, blacker, badder lashes with our ultra-creamy, lengthening and volumizing mascara. So intense you might need a safe word, Perversion glides on and gets you sexy in one stroke. (Yet it won’t quit until you say when.) It’s insane how black it is…the purest, deepest, most intense black color imaginable.

Perversion has a creamy, full-bodied texture that’s not too dry, not too wet. This allows just the right amount of “pull” so it glides through lashes. The result: incredible control for insane lashes. Go ahead and pile on coat after coat. Want to apply more before you go out at night? No problem. Even if it’s been all day since you applied, more Perversion always means more beautiful lashes. Their formula NEVER gets brittle or clumpy.

Perversion Mascara contains Hairdensyl, a complex blend of proteins and amino acids—including marine glycogen, known to stimulate lash growth. Honey extract provides deep nourishment, sea idrolized elastine stimulates the hair follicle, and marine collagen protects.

The twisted trim on the high-tech, volumizing brush latches on to each lash to separate and define; finally, a volumizing mascara with a clean, clump-free finish. It pulls through lashes smoothly and lays down a generous amount of product. No need to wiggle the wand or maneuver it at all different angles!

If you need to apply in public, you’ll look good holding Perversion. They emblazoned their gorgeous, highly metallized black tube with a big purple “Perversion” and our tagline: “Bigger. Blacker. Badder.”
