Evil Eye

plum and gray smokey eye shadow
Who doesn't love a sultry smoky eye? It's moody. It's sexy. It's perfect!

I created this dark and smokey eye shadow look on my daughter with the  MAC Evil Eye:Eye Shadow x4 years ago but it's a timeless look I love to create. 

This palette is no longer available plus, I no longer recommend MAC products due to the fact that MAC has been placed on the companies that test on animals lists. I do my best to use cruelty free brands.

This look can be recreated easily though with other eyeshadow palettes. I will give you a step by step guide to create this look along with the best eyeshadow palette Amazon Affiliate links with the perfect colors to get the look.

Recommended Eyeshadows to Create the Plumy Smoky Evil Eye

A deep berry, a blackened violet, black and light gray shadows were the colors used for this smoky eye.

There are two palettes I like that provide a nice selection of these colors. Neither one has a light gray but white and black gently blended will make the perfect light gray. 

A little pop of white on the brow bone adds contrast for more drama anyway.

One palette I recommend is the Urban Decay Ultra Violet Palette to get the evil eye look.

The Morphe x James Charles Artistry Palette is the other awesome palette I like to create the evil eye.

How to Create the Plumy Smoky Evil Eye

Primer your eyelids, crease and brow bone areas with Urban Decay Primer Potion. It's the best Primer around!

Light Gray or White
Apply a light gray or white shade of eyeshadow to under the brow bone.

Deep Berry
Apply a deep berry shade of eyeshadow to the inner half of the eyelids.

Blackened Violet
Apply a blackened violet shade of eyeshadow to the outer half of the eyelids. Blend the violet into the berry at the center of the eyelid.

Add black eyeshadow to the crease. Blend it well up into the light gray or white shadow on the brow bone. Use the black shadow to line the upper and lower lash lines.

Curl your lashes and add two coats of black mascara.

Remember to tap off your eyeshadow brush before you apply. These dark smoky colors can fall out onto your upper cheek and create a smoky mess!

I hope my tips help you create the smokiest, sexiest Evil Eye ever!

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

Why does my lipstick change color on my lips?

So, you found a gorgeous shade of peachy nude lipstick.... right on trend. It looks amazing in the lipstick tube but when you put it on, it turns orange within 15 minutes!  It happens to me all the time. Pigments in the lipstick react with the chemistry of the skin and change color. This color shift is due to the pH of the skin. Our skin has an acidic pH of 4.5 to 5.5. It varies slightly from person to person which is why lipstick changes on some people and not others.  The oil, sweat and bacteria on our skin create a protective layer called the acid mantle with its pH of 4.5 to 5.5. The acid mantle can change due to how we treat our skin.  The skin pH can change due to the environment.  The sun, as well as pollution, can affect skin's pH.  What we eat can affect the pH of our skin.  Sweating and cosmetic products can also change pH.  The skin will always try to get back to 4.5-5.5 no matter how we abuse it.  Use gentle pH balanced skin care products, eat a healthy diet w


This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
