Quick Post-What is my next learning phase of make up

Hello lovely people!! It is New Years Eve. I just want to wish you all a Happy and Safe transition into the new year and leave a quick post.

Anywho it seems as if everytime I conquer a make up task, look, technique here comes another challenge. While my eyebrow filling and blending have come a long way since I first started doing make up my new ughhhh moment is with cheek contouring. So I am on the quest to learn all that I can and report back to you all with my trials and tribulations. For we are all everyday Starlets as I learn I want to share with you all.

Have a great Holiday again. Enjoy be safe and let us go into this new year with great purpose.

Check In

Hello lovely people. Christmas has passed and we are creeping up on the New Year at an alarming rate. What will you change? I dare you to make the changes you know you need to make, state your goals and achieve them this year. If you want to be better at make up practice, at yoga do it, whatever it is DO IT!

After all beauty originates on the inside and sometimes we just have to do an over haul of that as well.

In the make up world try new colors, try colors people tell you that are not fit for you, fall into your make up and make fabulous things happen!!! So the look below is also the look I wore on Christmas but of course I did not get around to taking a close up until tomorrow. I can not tell you the exact colors because someone gave me a MAC stack 1 and the colors were not on tubes :( sorry but try it with shimmery pinks in graduated colors. The color in my crease though is Hot Topics Baked Fuschia.  I used the lighter pink color all over my lid, the stack had a medium color pink and I blended The Baked Fuschia in my crease and outer lid. Finished with Elf liquid liner pencil. And what clap clap bravo tis the season to be greeting. I will take pictures of the colors in the tube to kind of give you an idea of what they look like loose. I had NARS orgasm blush and lipgloss on earlier but you know. My foundation of course was Exquiste by Youngevity Make up which can be purchased at My eyebrows were done with a regular ol' wax and dark brown powder.

Ciao xoxo Nyki

Eye Brow Quickie!

In between grooming weeks? Well if your eye brows still have their shape and you just want to cover up those fine little hairs, here's a trick: cover them up with a nude primer or your concealer then sweep with foundation. And if you like add eyeshadow. I tend to go dark bronze in these times.

Diva your ready! Remember your true beauty is on the inside your make up should only be a reflection of how you feel on the inside.


STEP 1 – Holding a pencil vertically, beside the         
nostril and beside the inner corner of your eye,
mark a small dot in the brow line–this is where
your brow should start.

STEP 2 – Hold the pencil at an angle from the
nostril to the outer corner of your eye and
mark a small dot where it crosses your brow
line–this is where your brow should end.

STEP 3 – Mark the arch of your brow at its highest
point just above your pupil when looking
straight ahead. Gently tweeze away any stray
hairs outside of these dots.

STEP 4 – Use your Brow De­ner Brush to apply
eye shadow that is a shade lighter than your                                           
brow color to ­ll in any gaps or sparse areas.
