Fall Smokey Eye


 Hello my beauties! It’s been a long time since I blog on Fernanda’s Choice due to the fact that I’ve been working on a big project. 

I wanted to share with you. Look I created a couple of days ago with my Morphe 35N palette.

Pretty much I used a warm brown on the crease with a red-ish transition shade. Smoked out the black on the lid and brought it up to the crease without taking it too high.. I’m not into the racoon eye look. 😛

Smoked out my eye liner and also used some of the same shades I used on my crease on the lower lashline. 

  
Some info on my makeup:

Used my ABH for the brows, on my Face I’m wearing Makeup Forever Ultra HD foundation, the Shade+Light Contour Palette by KVD, Nars radiant creamy concealer in Custard, Risqué Koko Lashes, Champagne Pop Highlighter and on my lips I’m wearing a combo of Tulle by ColourPop and Pure Hollywood by ABH.

Hope you all enjoy and remember to have fun with all the warm colors on Fall. ❤️❤️❤️ 
Love,

Amaretto 


Hace aproximadamente 2 meses compré un delineador de labios por error. Estaba buscando colores vivos y terminé con uno llamado “Amaretto” de Vogue. No era rojo, sino un color cálido con tonalidades café y con un undertone rojizo.

Lo dejé en mi caja de lápices y hoy lo vi.

Sentí la necesidad de utilizarlo y eso fue lo que hice.

About 2 months ago I bought a lip liner by mistake. While I was actually looking for vivid colors, I ended up getting this brownish shade called “Amaretto” by Vogue (Colombian Brand).

I literally left it in my pencils box and saw it today, and I felt the need to use it and see how it was.

Face (Rostro):

  • Primer Smaxbox Pore Minimizer.
  • Foundation Nearly Naked In the shade Toast by Revlon. (Base)
  • Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. (Corrector)
  • Flormar Compact Powders. (Polvos compactors de Flormar)
  • Flormar Bronzer. (Bronceador Flormar)
  • Flormar Blush in Coral Shade. (Rubor Coral de Flormar)

Eyes (Ojos):

  • Elf 100 shadows: I used warm brown shades and Black to smoke out my crease and lid (Sombras Elf en Tonos café y un tono negro para difuminar en el párpado)
  • L’Oreal Infallible Shadow in the shade “Eternal Sunshine” ( Sombras L’Oreal en color dorado)
  • Maybelline Gel Eyeliner in the shade Blackest Black ( delineator negro en gel de Maybelline)
  • Dramatic Falsies (pestañas por Ardell)
  • Black kohlpencil for the waterline. 

 Lips(Labios):

  • The famous Amaretto lip shade.

Y Bueno Acá tienen el producto terminado!!!

Espero que lo disfruten!! 🙂

 

Here is the finished look, I hope you enjoy it!! 🙂


Love,

El Secreto: Delinear


Love this dramatic winged eyeliner! :: Retro Eyeliner:: Vintage Makeup Inspiration:: Pin Up makeup:: Wing tips

Delinear no es una tarea fácil. Por delinear no me refiero a el delineado que hacíamos cuando estábamos en el cole, que tomábamos un lápiz negro y lo pongamos en la parte inferior del párpado o el “waterline” y eramos la más guapa!! jajaja… (Que buenos tiempos 😀 ) Pues no… Me refiero a el delineado con la alita pequeña al final (winged eyeliner).

Gold and brown with black winged eyeliner- Start with gold shimmer-eyeshadow Next use a soft brown eyeshadow Then use liquid eyeliner to create angled wings Finally use mascara to coat your top and bottom eyelashes

Este tiene su ciencia… Y te puedo asegurar que ni la más experimentada tiene siempre días buenos de delineado, literalmente me he quietado todo el maquillaje y me he rehusado a salir de mi casa simplemente porque no me quedó bien… Y sí yo se que es bastante tonto pero cuando una toma en serio algo tan simple como el maquillaje no se puede evitar sentirse de esa manera.

La razón por la que quería hablar al respecto es porque varias veces amigas me han dicho que no les queda parejo, o se les dificulta la técnica, y pensando en eso decidí mostrarles tutoriales que encontré en línea al respecto.

Que necesito para delinearme?

Eyeliner Struggles


Hey Dolls,

How are you?! I hope you’re all having amazing times waiting for Christmas to come… It’s funny now that I think about it. For most of us Christmas lovers, time goes by so slow during the year and December just flies so fast that I just realized we’re almost there.

I was thinking about yesterday morning trying to apply my eyeliner in a hurry while I was getting ready for work (because I was really late). I tried my left side 4 times before I got it the way I wanted… Sooo It crossed my mind that I’ve been eye lining for years and still in a rush from time to time I struggle so bad just to get my wings even and perfect… So I started thinking about the people not so experienced and how they might think they’re just too clumsy or not good for that at all.

I wrote this just to let you know you’re not clumsy or useless for that… Unless you are a professional makeup artist you should not feel bad to struggle with your eyeliner. We all share the struggle. Hahaha… I will be doing a tutorial hopefully really soon and maybe you’ll get a couple of tips here and there from a not-professional perspective.

I thought into sharing a piece of my day with you.

My beautiful Costa Rican view f on work.

Love always,

Si no has oído hablar de la latina DulceCandy te pierdes de inspiración diaria.

Tiene un estilo muy trendy, clásico y hasta Boho aveces.. Ella no le teme a experimentar y hacer de cada outfit su propio estilo. Toma riesgos con los polores, patrones, juega con las cosas que usa ya que a como un día utiliza un bolso Chanel y lo combina con unos zapatos de F21, también usa marcas como Michael Kors, TopShop, Target y cualquier cosa que se adapte a su gusto. Demostrando que para tener estilo no siempre se debe usar ropa de diseñador.

Algunos ejemplos de sus bellos ensambles:

You Are Just Another Blogger


LONDON FASHION WEEK STREET STYLE

Lately I have been talking about the fact that style should not be imposed, style should not be something you follow because you want to look like someone, style is your personality, which means is unique. People in Asia have an incredibly unique style. The first time I saw a video on how they dress in their every day life I was like….. WOW! When you ask them, they will tell you that they want to stand out and that is the reason their way to dress is so rare. Here in the occidental part of the world we’re kind of like -CATTLE- and excuse me, if you think the word is harsh… But it is the reality. We all do fashion blogs, we all blog about the same, we all write and think alike and most alarming… WE COPY EACH OTHER.

What do you think the creators of the blogs The Blonde Salad have in common with The Song of Style, or Cupcakes and Cashmere with Micah?

The Answer is NOTHING!

They just share a passion for blogging and fashion.. nothing more…. their style is completely different. I actually enjoy blogging about being different and standing out, because in this world where we’re just going after the same thing in the same way… Well I am sorry to tell you that will not make the difference at all.

I want to challenge you today.

I want to challenge you to be different, to brainstorm, to make a change every day of your life. That you blog because you want to share your journey with people. To inspire. To grow. To believe things can happen for you if you just try to make it the right way and not the easy way. Often we find ourselves thinking that we’ll make it if we just start, if we just try… and well.. yeah that is true.. but work hard for stuff, don’t be lazy. Make it your job that every day girls want to visit your blog, because they know they’ll find inspiration not only for clothes but for something far more important. Passion. I want to see passion. Passion is underrated, way too much. And you will just be one more girl dreaming about having a successful fashion blog. Do not copy anyone, seek for inspiration, seek for that passion. Dream big and reconnect with who you are, sometimes we get lost in all the things we see, we read and we were told… Just go back to being you. I can guarantee it’s far more effective than being just another place to see girls stuff, for that I already have Pinterest.

Think about it 🙂

Be the difference.

Nighty Night ❤

A successful blogger isn’t born overnight.It takes time effort, knowledge and willingness to make it despite not-so-positive feedback and critics. There are millions of Blogs and Bloggers in the world, and it is hard to stand out; you really need to bring your A-Game and talent to make it above the average.
