Luck of the Irish!

Hello Royal Beauties! Guess what is coming up?! St. Patty's Day! YAY! Hahahaha I love this holiday, I think its so fun! So!! I wanted to come up with a St. Patrick's Day look to share with you guys and hopefully inspire you to create your own "green" themed makeup look for this Saturday. Let's get to it! Here are the pics!

To get this look:
I used NYX trio eyeshadows for the green. I put all three shades on my lid from lightest in the inner part to darkest in the outer corner and blend!! I also put the middle green shade along my lower lid close to my lashes. I used ELF cream eyeshadow in Candlelight in the inner corner by the tear duct and then just tapped a white powder eyeshadow on top of it to set it. I lined my upper and lower lids in black liner and then curled my lashes and put on my favorite mascara. Then I chose to add rhinestones to add some sparkle, but those are optional:) Then I put on my favorite ELF bronzer, and ELF HD powder, and then a nude lip stick. And that's it! You're done! :))

Have a lucky St. Patrick's Day!

Abstract #2

Hey Royal Beauties! My friend Alli sent me this abstract picture for this series, and wanted me to do a makeup look for it - I think this picture is so cool!

SO! I wanted to make sure that I emphasized the "tear drop" kind of a pattern that is seen throughout this picture. And I also wanted to make sure that I got the layers of color and shape into the look. Here is what I came up with!

So I put the yellow color on my lid up to the crease. Then I added a blackish/brownish (I mixed the two) in my crease, and brushed it around the outer corner of my eye and brought it down to the outer third of my lower lid. Then I put a copper color on the top edge of that to blend it out. I lined my eye and put on my mascara. In order to convey the shape of the picture to my eye, I put a black rhinestone on my inner corner (you can also create the same "point" effect with eyeliner) and put a half circle of rhinestones along the edge of the eyeshadow to emphasize the outer oval shape. And that was it! I hope you like this look and it inspires you to create something beautiful! Email me a picture that you like from the internet or that you created and I will create a makeup look and do a blog post on it! ( Don't forget to "like" Royal Beauty on Facebook! Much love! Have a WONDERFUL Saturday... Smile:) xoxo

Work it! Fabulous Fashion Friday

Hey all! So this fashion Friday is a very simple, yet fashion-forward look. It can be a school outfit, work outfit, or stylish weekend outfit. Take a look:

So it is a loose, flowy top - with a neat design and a lot of colors - that has a tighter waist line that shows off your hips. I personally love these kinds of tops because they can be casual or more dressy depending on what you wear with them. Then you throw on your favorite jeans - with a looser top I would recommend skinny jeans. And then put on a pair of boots - I personally like the heels but flats work too;) And then accessorize!! Because the design of my top was so big and intricate I decided not to add a necklace because I felt it would be too overwhelming, so I stuck to bangles and rings and my watch! :) Hope you like it!! Remember to be YOU! And dress in a way that shows people who YOU are!:) Stay strong and stay beautiful:) xoxo

Guatemala Art Inspired

Hello Royal Beauties! Ok, so as some of you know, I have a passion for Central America! I have been to Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Honduras, and Guatemala and I speak spanish!! Those countries are beautiful - in terms of culture, land, and people! I LOVE it. So! I have this painting of Lake Atitlan up in my room and I wanted to do a makeup look off of it because the colors were so beautiful!

Sassy Classy School Girl - Look #3

I haven't been doing enough of these looks, so I apologize beautiful girls! SO! This is a very simple and very quick look to do any school or work day when you are a little crunched on time. It is inspired by a look from Rihanna's music video You Da One. Very simple, very chic, and very classy. :) And THAT is what we want! Here is a picture from the music video that inspired this School Girl look:

And here is the Sassy Classy School Girl look that came out of it!! :)


1. Simple Eyes - Apply a primer (optional, but strongly recommended). Next apply an eyeshadow that is close to your skin tone - shimmery or matte, whichever you prefer. Then take a deeper brown eyeshadow and work it from the outer corner of your upper lid and bring it 3/4 of the way into your crease, towards the inner corner of your lid. Take some of that same shade of the darker brown, and gently brush it on the outer 1/3 of your lower lid. Curl your lashes (optional). Apply 1-2 coats of your favorite mascara on the upper lashes, and one very light coat on the bottom lashes.

2. Flawless Face - Apply a coat of your favorite foundation, and then conceal any trouble spots that you still see (redness, dark areas, blemishes). Add a bronzer, or a contour shade, or a blush, anything to give your face a more defined shape.

3. Lovely Lips - Apply a fairly soft, but deep, shade of lipstick - or just simply whatever your favorite is! You can choose to line your lips with a slightly darker lip pencil if you want to go for a sexier look! ;)

And that is all!!! Once again, I really hope you guys liked this post and that it inspires you and gives you ideas and inspiration to create your own simple on-the-go looks! Love you all! Stay strong!
